Wild Crazy Puppy Trouble
Right now, I am napping. The puppies kept me up all night and kept me busy this morning.
Mom and Little Bit are typing this blog entry for me.
That's the best picture Mom says that she can take of her and Little Bit by herself.
What a tough life. A cattle dog's work is never done. Since I don't have cattle to herd, I will just keep writing blogs while all the other non-working animals sleep.
The puppies are part border collie and part lab. Tanker is a border collie. Aren't they supposed to be working dogs too? The puppies only know how to play and get into trouble. I have not ever seen them work. They mooch off of Mom and Dad. They are bums.
And they harass Tanker. I think Tanker secretly likes it.
Sometimes they like to pretend like they are working, but they are not. They are just trying to look cute and earn brownie points.
Mom and Dad say they are going to start crating Shiloh and Bella at night. Last night, Bella chewed through Dad's cell phone charger. They kept us all up last night playing. Where do these puppies get their energy from? Dad is tired all the time from his Tick Disease. Puppies are awake all of the time because they are puppies. Dad and puppies need to switch roles.
Why do Mom and Dad not use Frontline or K9 Advantix? They buy it for all of us, but they go without. That's how I know they are good parents. They provide for us Zoo Crew so well. Dad got bit by ticks. Mom got bit by mosquitoes. I wouldn't be surprised if they had fleas too. Tanker and I are thinking about donating our next month's application of Frontline to them so they don't have to suffer.
The puppies woke up full of energy this morning. They went outside and dug holes. Shiloh tried chewing on the deck. Mom was running all over the yard in Dad's shoes trying to keep them under control. It was funny. Mom ended up carrying both puppies in and bathing them in the kitchen sink.
Tanker and I take turns babysitting the puppies outside. It is hard to keep them out of trouble. It is very hard.
After Mom brought the puppies in and bathed them in the sink, everybody took another nap. Bella kept saying it wasn't fair and that she did not dig holes, but the proof was on her nose.
