Since I last posted here another new dog has arrived. Her name is Xana. Skye's kennel has been finished and she moved into it. Hope has been practicing walking and trying hard. Mom spent all the money we had left on fencing and Hope's acupuncture and then went into panic. Humans are so silly they invented money to make themselves miserable. Us dogs don't need money. I once chewed up a ten Reais note and Mom nearly cried over a piece of paper. I think I now understand why. Emmy explained it all to me. No money equals no food. Now that's bad. I understand that. I didn't realize that the humans swap paper for dog food and they call humans the most intelligent species? I don't think so! Anyway here are some pictures from the last week. I couldn't blog earlier because Mom is always busy. Here is a video to start with of Hope trying to walk. She needs a lot of help. I asked Emmy to ask up there where she is to give Hope the strength to walk. Poor old girl deserves a break after all the abuse she suffered.


and here are some pictures of her.


She can't walk yet but she is much happier being clean and fed. She said she lost the will to live because her life was so horrible. She was chained in a filthy kennel paralyzed and covered in her own mess. Now when she wants a poop she just barks and Mom and Dad  take her out. 


Check out her smile. She said she hasn't laughed in years. This is the beginning of her new life.


Even if she doesn't walk Mom says she will get her a cart and she will have some fun. Everyone deserves a bit of fun. 

 Here is Daisy another dog that could hardly walk when she arrived. She looks awesome now. She is very bossy though. Shame she just pooped and posed in front of it. Some dogs have no class!


This is Freddy and Cassie. They were really hot in this weather. 


It's 93 in the shade so we have all been drinking gallons of water.


I like Topi he has class. he doesn't care what anyone thinks about his eccentricities. He doesn't pose near poop. He only talks to the ones he likes. He ignores the dogs he doesn't like and then goes away and chuckles to himself.


Mom still won't get me the blue contacts!


But hey! I am so handsome I don't need them.


I must be handsome cos I got a girl friend like this.


Here is the majestic Oscar. He is asleep with a fly on his head. Not quite so majestic here. I bet he snores too!


Well! I admit he looks good here. No flies on him!

Here I am. Posing on the table.


Here is the new girl now called Xana.


She is really old. she is between 13 and 14 years old. Mom has to take in three more dogs from the same place as her and doesn't have the resources yet to do it.


Xana came full of Bot flies and had to go to the vets for antibiotic injections

She is a lot happier now.


I always finish my blog with Me and My girl. Here we are. Just one more special pic for you.


Me and Emmy I miss her so much. I know I talk to her but I want to play with her.

Fencing

Hi! Mom is letting me blog today. A lot has been happening here lately. First of all they put a fence right around the front of the garden. I wasn't so pleased about this because it will put an end to my clandestine trips out into the world. I had quite a few canine friends that I was visiting off and on. 


Now I can only bark at them through the fence. No more sniffy, sniffy. No more mom and dad  chasing me and screaming my name as I sprint down the road. The end of an era for me. I earnt a bit of street cred but it's all over now. I decided instead to get into art. There is a British artist called Tracy Emin who exhibited at the Tate gallery and was nominated for the Turner Prize for creating a messy bed, her bed was taken from her home exactly as it was unmade and strewn with litter around it, so my first project was a recreation of this. Here it is.  


I am awaiting my nomination for a Turner Prize to arrive in the post. I left my toy in the bed too just to add that extra touch of class. Tracy Emin left her worn underwear strewn around but, of course, as I don't wear underwear I couldn't do that. I did try to steal some of Mom's but she caught me in the act and I had to put it back. Hope the new dog is still here. She still can't walk but she is a bit better. She goes backwards and forwards to the vet clinic every week. Here she is after her acupuncture. 


She also had to have her ears seen too. She is an old girl and has been badly abused by some rotten humans.


Humans think if there is a problem and they stab it with a needle that will cure it. I just don't get it!


Dad gave Trooper a cuddle and I saw him stick his tongue out at me. I don't think he likes me very much. Mom and Dad thought it was cute. How stupid is that? It was a total insult and he looked right at me as he did it!

Sam just sat in the corner watching and said we were both being juvenile. I will have to look that word up. 


All my blogs have a picture of me and my girl. Here is one more. She really loves me and who can blame her. Only the barking mad can't see the attraction. 


Oscar has grown a lot so I quit teasing him for my own safety. 


 I still think something should be done about those wrinkles.  


Now the garden is all fenced the small compound has gone and the kennel garden on one side of the house has been made larger. The dogs there all liked the idea and came out to sniff the new garden. 


That is Gracie at the front. There is also Cassie, Pluto, Topi, Daisy and Freddy in the picture.

Super Star

I have been quite upset all week because I didn't win the Canine Superstar competition. I really can't see why not it's only barking obvious that I am super star material. I blame mom for not getting me the blue contact lenses because I may have won if I had the blue eyes. They completely overlooked all my talents my dancing and howling a tune, my ability to become invisible and my stunning good looks. I don't know what happened must of been some of those stupid humans voting for other dogs and not me. I was also disappointed for Mom because I was going to give her my prize money to look after dogs like Hope who arrived last week from the vet clinic where she had been staying for quite a while because she was neglected by humans. Mom has taken her in. She can't walk and has lots of problems (that's Hope not Mom).


She looked a lot happier than when she was taken there and she certainly smelt a lot better. I am not one to complain but her perfume was not my favorite.


She has skin problems, ear problems, can't walk, pressure sores, tumors, anemia and cysts.





She might look so great but she is extremely happy to escape from her old existence where she was left lying in poo and urine. The humans just didn't care about her at all. One of them was going to hit her head with a spade and kill her. Dad told them he would prosecute them if they did. What sort of humans are these? That is why Mom had to take Hope in before they killed her.  Meanwhile I am still dreaming of become a dancing dog one day.
  
It's so easy I can do it with my eyes shut. I am a natural just nobody of note has noticed me yet. I will get discovered one day though. I am teaching my girlfriend Gemma. Here we are doing a canine Tango.


I got a lucky break this week the incredibly handsome and blue eyed brother of Skye isn't coming here anymore. He got adopted by some nice people and will be living quite near here. I just couldn't stand the competition  I am the handsome guy here and there isn't room for two of us or his blue eyes.  


Here he is at the vet clinic with his new Mom. 


Here I am asleep. I am incredibly handsome awake or asleep. 


Now Guga on the other hand could do with some cosmetic enhancement. I was thinking of fur tint to hide the white fur, dentures to replace his gummy smile and glasses so he could  look cooler. Hope just got back from the vet clinic so I will go and see how she is right now. Joey Travolta signing off in Brazil
