First of all, did you guys see what Maggy and Zoey at Zoolatry did for us? Isn't it beautiful? We absolutely love it!
We hope everyone had a nice weekend. It has finally cooled off enough that Mommy left the windows open all day so we could enjoy the breeze. It was a lovely way to spend the weekend - napping with the breeze blowing over us and hearing the birds and squirrels.
In between napping, we had to listen to Samwise complain that he is not blogging with us. Who is Samwise you might ask? He's our oldest brother who is actually a doggie, although he really thinks he is a kitty. He lived with Mommy and Daddy before either of us. Like Jack, a kid in the neighborhood found Samwise four years ago and took him to Aunt Susan (all of the kids bring Aunt Susan the strays they find being as she is a V-E-T and all). Daddy's brother had just crossed the Rainbow Bridge and Aunt Susan thought Daddy needed a friend so she talked him into adopting Samwise. Later, Mommy was concerned that Samwise was lonely being left alone in the house all day so Aunt Susan recommended adopting Samwise a kitty friend. A few months later, along came Captain Jack. Samwise loved Captain Jack from the moment he saw him - he even groomed Jack for three whole hours the first night Jack was adopted. Mommy wanted us to include the picture below as it is here favorite of Samwise and Captain Jack - taken when the Captain was only about 6 weeks old.
So Samwise raised Captain Jack, teaching him how to play and how to hunt and fight. Samwise has always been very patient with Jack, even when Jack tried to put the bitey on him like he did in the picture below.
People usually ask Mommy what kind of doggie Samwise is. She thinks he is a border collie/sheltie/spaniel mix and is very sweet and friendly. Sadly, Captain Jack cannot convince Dante to love or even tolerate Samwise. Dante must have had some bad experiences with doggies when he was a homeless kitty, because he really does not like them and instead growls and hisses at Samwise whenever he is near. Captain Jack has actually had to put the bitey on Dante when Dante tried to attack Samwise. Its one of the things that Jack will always pull Captain's rank on Dante for, because he loves his Sammy!
Stay tuned later in the week. Mommy wants us to do a feature post on our other brother doggie named Beaux. She told us that she will give us nip and Pounce if we do so we guess we should. Do you guys want to hear about Beaux too?
