Visitor from the USA

Hi! I am back. Mom's been busy as usual so I haven't been able to blog. It's been raining a lot here and that makes a lot more work for her. We put our muddy paw prints everywhere and she cleans them and then we do it again. She went crazy cleaning our paw prints off walls and other places because a visitor was coming from America. Daisy got a hair cut and we all got a good brush and toe nail clip for the event. His name was Jeff and he came and said 'Hello' to all of us. Guga liked him a lot and everyone stared in awe as we don't get many visitors here.  He took some pictures of us and Gemma jumped on his lap. Mom has an auction going on Facebook to help Casper and her brother and his friend. They are waiting to join Casper here when Mom and Dad can get a kennel fixed for them. Mom is also trying to find a larger place to move us all to. It's not easy because nobody really wants to let a property to someone who has 26 dogs. Not that we do any destruction-- well not much. I actually improve properties by irrigated the soil with large holes and then I am an expert at tree pruning. I keep the trees and plants in order by biting off any new shoots and some existing branches that need to disappear. Then some of us males water the plants with high Nitrogen urine which the plants love. I don't understand what humans have against us inhabiting their properties. Gemma and I got late Christmas presents  I got a fluffy pig and Gemma got a fluffy Walrus. We also got treats to eat which  Mom made us share with the others. Here are some of the pictures I took for you to see. First me and my girl playing our game. Gemma started this time first. Whoever goes first wraps themselves in the sofa cover. 


Then the other one has to get them out and then we reverse roles. Here I am wrapped.


Gemma is doing her best to get me out.


 It's not easy and takes a lot of canine skill. She is pulling hard at the cover but I am fully in control of the situation.



The trick is to wrap yourself very well in a knot. Gemma hasn't quite got the hang of that part yet. 


I tease her a bit from under the cover and tell 'Come on! Come and get me'. 


She goes crazy when I taunt her like this.


 I always win and decided to make it a bit easier for her.


Daisy had a new hair do and special things stuck in her hair. I almost wished I had long hair like her.



 Mom had to take the ribbon out because there was a good chance Cassie of Freddy would try to eat them. She came back smelling like a human and all clean and brushed. It lasted all of two days because she has been rolling in the mud again. 


When Freddy saw Daisy he couldn't stop laughing and fell flat on his face in the mud. 


Jeff wasn't the only visitor this week a horse stopped by too when he saw how beautiful Daisy looked his eyes nearly popped out. 


Gracie couldn't believe it. A huge smile spread across her face and she went to tell Pluto.


Daisy is such a scruffy dog that nobody could believe it. We just all looked on in awe. We never knew she could look so pretty.


After she told Pluto she went to tell Cassie


Cassie was flabbergasted and just stared . Oscar was just in complete shock and couldn't understand why anyone would put silly stuff in her hair. He is a bit of an oaf and doesn't understand the finer elements of life!


Guga got up as well. He wanted to see her new hair do too. 


By that time it was dinner time so Dad started making our dinners.


  When Dad has to leave the dishes unattended then Guga guards them.


Here he is keeping an eye on the food. He think we might steal some. As if.........

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone. I have nearly been here with Dogs in Brazil one whole year. The 5th of January is my rescue day birthday. I will be around one year and five weeks then. Nobody knows the exact date I was born on. When I first arrived I looked like this.


I got my name because Joey is what they call Kangaroos in Australia and I had to be carried around in a bag all day because I screamed if I was left alone. I just didn't want to be abandoned again.


You could already tell at this tender young age how handsome I was going to be. Mom called me ET for a while. I don't know why?


I got to sleep on the bed and play with the other dogs. I loved it and couldn't bear the thought of being thrown out again. Anyway! then I grew up and became the Canine superstar that I am today. I am talented and handsome and best of all I get to blog about Mom and Dad's rescue shelter for all the unfortunate dogs they find here. I help keep everyone amused even when they are all sad. Emmy says I am good at that. 


Guga had is celebration adoption day on the 30th of December too. He has been with Mom and Dad two years now. He didn't get the dentures or grey hair remover that I ordered from Santa. I am not sure why not.  
We all waited up on Christmas Eve for Santa to come. We waited at the door because there isn't a chimney here. 


He finally did turn up the next day and we all got a dog treat. We were all very happy and Hope was singing Christmas Carols. 


I also wrote to Santa about new haircuts for Sam and Daisy who are having regular bad hair days. 


They don't seem that bothered by their bad haircuts. 


Casper has been adjusting well and will soon be bossing us all around. She has put on weight and she is the fastest dog here. She can even run faster than me and I can run fast!





Xana got a new elevated bed for Christmas. 


Here is Freddy. Mom said to include him because he looks gorgeous here.


Little One peeked out of her house for a while on Christmas day. She is very shy.


Here is me and my girl Gemma.

 and my girl Gemma alone.


She adores me. Skye just gave me a funny look when I said that? Funny I never noticed what a big mouth she has before that....


Nicky also looked at me strangely!


Sol said she worries about me. (Something about my mental health????)


Cassie was talking to Mom in a whisper and I kept hearing the word 'Shrink'and 'half mad'


Mom told them not to all worry about me it's just the way I am. So here is how I am lately.


Here I am relaxing with my girl. She finds me attractive wearing my blanket.


She giggles a lot when I do this.


Being Bonkers is great! You humans should try it! Well Happy New Year from all of us here. If you can help Mom and Dad save dogs then please do this. We are all worth it. Mom says we are all Angels! Emmy and Pebbles are real Angels now. We are just earthly Angels. Emmy said I should enjoy myself whilst I am a puppy and that's what I do best. Emmy told me to tell everyone that used to read her Blog to say 'Happy New Year'  from her too. We wish she could be here to say it herself.
