Finally I am Back

I am back and I know how much you have all missed me. I only have to read all the comments. Mom has been very busy and I am not allowed to blog without her in case I get bored waiting and chew the computer cables. The first thing I have to tell you is that Emmy sent a beautiful flower to Mom from beyond the grave. It started growing a while back on her grave and she told me not to pee on it or chew it. I respect Emmy and she was my first friend here, so I didn't do anything nasty on it. Then a while back a beautiful flower opened. 

I showed it to Mom immediately and she got all emotional. Emmy said it was to make mom happy and let her know that her, Pebbles, and all the others are happy and waiting somewhere. Mom didn't look that happy she started crying instead. The flower was spectacular.

Somebody told Mom it is a Canna Lily and mom said it should be called a 'Canine Lily'. It was the best present she had for a long time. Then a huge storm and more flooding came and Emmy's flower faded. I guess it's back with her now. That's where all the things that disappear go. The next big thing that happened here was that another new dog arrived. We all only just got used to Xana, who is sleeping in the bedroom now. Boy she really wheedled her way into everything. 

She is sleeping on Emmy's old bed exactly where Emmy slept, near mom and dad's bed. I thought it was a bit of a cheek at first, but Emmy explained that she doesn't need the bed. Emmy sleeps on a cloud now and Xana is nearly 14 years old and has had a hard life, sleeping on hard surfaces for years, so she should sleep on Emmy's old bed.  As I told you another dog arrived here. She looked very thin and very frightened. 

This was one frightened dog. 

Just like Oscar was she is very thin because the humans responsible for her weren't looking after her properly. We know she will be fine now that she is here with us. By the end of the second day she was wagging her tail a tiny bit. We all had a great laugh because Mom and dad told us all the new dog was a boy. Of course, at first we thought it was some type of human joke then we realized they meant it.  Word soon got round and everyone cracked up as the new dog even got given a boy's name. She got called 'Casper'. Here are some of us laughing. Cassie went overboard and rolled on the ground like a bear. 

Someone said she looked like a bear and she got up shook her self off and said 'Where's my pot of Honey then? Word traveled round quickly about the huge mistake.

I told Nicky, Pluto and Gracie and they spread the word from there until everyone knew. They all came to see the girl named Casper.

Xana chuckled like the oldies do.

Hope was shouting 'It's a girl It's a girl!'

She then cracked up with laughter too

Sol said she would split her sides laughing. I am surprised her sides haven't split already because she is so fat .

Oscar couldn't believe the humans were so silly and thought she that was a boy.

Skye also had a good laugh. I like it when she laughs because you can't see her blue eyes so clearly and I am still jealous of them. 

Even old Guga woke up to enjoy the joke.

Freddy missed most of it because he was too busy still looking for the ball that I hid weeks ago.

He never noticed that Skye found it a long time ago

Sam giggled and said she would have a word with Dad.

Dad did not listen and that was that!  Casper the female dog now has a boy's name.

Here is me and my girl Gemma 

We have the occasional lovers tiff,  but we laugh. I tell her 'Hey! Bite my nose! 

and she says 'Hey! bite my arse!

Then at night we play secrets.

The other news this week was that we got a calendar for Dogs in Brazil. Oscar is September's pin up boy.

I am on the February page. I got a new blanket sent from England and Gemma got one too. A nice lady called Jayne knitted them. 

and Guga made a mess on his clean bed. Emmy said it wasn't necessary to mention that but it just sort of slipped out!
 and just in case you are all worried Casper (the girl) is following Guga around and introducing herself to us all one by one. She is still a bit afraid but is settling in well. 

Well I am tired now. That was a long blog. Emmy asked me to tell everyone that Christmas is coming and to be generous and to please help Mom and Dad help more street dogs here in Brazil.

My dear sweet friends, I sure have missed you! But what a wonderfully written blog post to read today. You made Mommy Jenny and me laugh out loud at all the funny mix up with Casper the girl dog. All the smiling, laughing dogs really brought joy to our hearts. And it was especially touching about Emmy's flower that she sent to you Jan. I love the concept of the 'canine lily'.
Mommy now volunteers weekly at our local shelter taking pet portraits of each adoptable dog and cat and making cool posters for each of them to help give them much more exposure. She's co-admin of the local shelter Facebook page and has helpded drum up a lot of support. Since July, we've helped re-home over 100 animals! It's been pretty amazing.
I pray that you all have a wonderful weekend. Give all the dogs my love and especially be sure to tell Joey he is doing an EXCELLENT job with the blog!
Love & hugs, Pixel (and Mommy Jenny)

Jacob and I are trying to be really good, just in case Santa is looking. I figure I'll get all the gifts anyway..... he is always getting into trouble! Oh well, heres hoping for the best for all us dogs! Worldwide! Take care. Loads of sniffs and wags, Blossom
