Baby Pictures

April 9, 2009

So, by now every-bully knows we are going to move into a new house in the woods REAL soon we hope. The workers are sayin they should be done workin and we should be able to start movin by the middle of May. Ya’ll keep yer paws crossed that we will be. DawgMom is beginnin to go crazy here in this neighborhood. Really, she’s gonna lose it if we don’t get her out in the peace and quiet of those woods soon.

Our new house in the woods

Since we are gonna move, DawgMom has started putting things in boxes and going through things to keep and what not to keep. While she was packin things up, she came across a disc that said “PIX FILES” so of course, she had to put it in the pooter and see just what was on there. She started laughin and going “AAAWWWW” and we just couldn’t figure out what she was looking at. We thought her half-timers was acting up again. It had to be, half-timers would explain sudden laughin and weird noises, but it wasn’t half-timers, it was this…..

Thirsty Skunk

Thirsty Skunk

It’s a HUGE skunk! Getting a drink out of our water bowl!! Wait! That’s not a skunk, that was Feather getting ready for Halloween. Feather loves to dress up and she thinks it’s cool, but then again, it IS Feather after all! BOL!  DawgMom also found this…

Me! When I was just 4 months old! DawgMom is holding me like a baby and I’m lovin it. I don’t love it now, but if she insists, I’ll sit that way for a few minutes just to pacify her. She found all kinds of pictures she forgot she had. Here’s one of Feather when she was a little baby.

And Feather when her ears are cold. She says the flashie thingie hurts her eyes so she closed them.

My ears are cold!

Me and Feather was wrestlin on the bed and she had to go get the flashie thingie. I remember how she laughed and laughed at us that day.

She says there’s tons more pictures on that disc and we’ll post them a little at a time. Of course, I better put a picture or two on here of Pappy when he was little or he will start whinin and brat barkin and who wants to hear that nonsense?

Well, that’s it for this post, it’s WAY past our bedtime and DawgMom is sayin something about needin the pooter to look up something for her stained glass. Did we tell you we’re sick of hearin about that stained glass?? Here’s the one she just finished, she doesn’t have a light in it yet, like we care, we just want her to be done with those dumb flower things and make some more Bull Terror things.

The Sky has been leakin’

April 1, 2009

Feather Louise here, how’s every-bully been? DawgMom, Darla Jean and Pappy have been hoggin the pewter and I guess I finally fussed enough, DawgMom said I could have a turn. Don’t she know I’m the Queen and I should have first right of refusal??

We had a couple of really sunny, warm days since Pappy posted about our new house problems and then the sky started leaking ALOT. I mean one day after another after another. Today was the first day in a while that we didn’t have a leaky sky to look at. You should see our yard, it’s perfect for rolling around in and changing my color from white to brown!

DawgMom got the video camera out before the sky started leakin and took videos of us playing ball with DawgDaddy in the backyard. As soon as we can figure out how to get the videos on here, I’ll be sure to add them so you can see us havin fun. She did take some pictures of Pappy playin Chicken Run with DawgDaddy. Pappy thinks he’s hidin behind that bush! BOL  He’s such a silly boy!

"You can't catch me DawgDaddy!"

"You can't catch me DawgDaddy!"

DawgDaddy can't see me here

The foundashuns man is out at our new house in the woods this week makin our driveway wider and then he is going to fix that drain problem. DawgDaddy says we should be moving out there the first week in May. Every-bully keep your paws crossed for us. We can’t wait!

LizzaBella aka Izzy, the spinning foster Bully we have here is doing alot better. Her tail is almost healed up and she is learning even more about playing like a real dog does. DawgMom took a couple of pictures of her out in the yard that sunny day and in the house playing with Cissy the Chiwawa Chawaawaa Messican Taco Bell Dawg. DawgMom even caught her in the middle of shakin her head, look at that funny face! She still has to wear that Frankiestein collar once in a while cause she still gets extra excited and tries to get her tail, but she doesn’t have to wear it as much as she used to. She’s put on 3 pounds since we brought her home too! She’s even learned how to sleep upside down like the rest of us Bullies do, see her peekin one eye at DawgMom while she’s takin the picture? BOL

That’s about all that’s been happening around here lately, but DawgMom says if the sky doesn’t leak this weekend, we get to go out and hunt some rocks for Pedro to put in his coffee table! We can’t wait. Besides, I think Cissy has a little bit of a crush on Pedro, she said he was one good lookin Chiwawa Chawaawa Messican Dang it! Taco Bell Dawg! Go check out his blog and check out his brother Ziggy’s blog  too. They’re pretty cool dudes!

Now, I have to get my bee-ootie sleep, but I’ll leave you with a picture of me with DawgMom when I was little.

Wasn't I cute when I was little?

Honesty is the best policy

February 27, 2009

(*From DawgMom~Don’t know what the deal is with wordpress today, but I can’t seem to keep the fonts all the same color or things centered the way I want so….)

Wow! Imagine our surprise when we found out Sushi, Dolby & Murphy gave us an award! How cool is that?! There are rules (of course, ain’t there always rules?) So here we go…….

honest-scrap-award

“When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to said person so everyone knows he or she is real. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends. Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Weblog”. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten honest things about yourself. Then, pass it on!”

DawgMom had to play the stupid draw straws game to see which one of us got to tell the truth and Pappy won. But then Feather got the great idea that we could all take turns telling the truth about ourselves! And since there’s 3 of us, we’ll do 4 each, that’s the only fair way to do it & it keeps whiney baby Pappy quiet for a while. So here we go:

Feather’s confessions:

1) I started my life off with LOTS of health problems. I have grain allergies & demodectic mange that are being managed now with our Raw Diet.

MMM Chicken Livers, see my big bowl?

2) I love it when DawgMom holds me on her lap like a baby. Nevermind that I weigh 61 pounds & it makes her legs go to sleep, it’s comforting to me & that’s all that matters, ain’t it??Camping in Gettysburg, PA

3) I “talk” ALOT! I can make Wookie sounds, cry baby sounds & I can even do elk calls if we ever decide to go elk hunting.

 See? I can talk!

 

 

 

 

4) I am white, but not if I can help it. I try to do things to stay in fashion. I was even purple one time!

 Purple is my color, don't you think?

Darla’s Confessions
1) I am a Daddy’s girl, BIG TIME!

2) I am a supervisor & I take my job seriously, especially making sure that our new house in the woods is being done right.

Did that tile man get the new kitchen floor layed right??

3) I loves, loves, LOVES me some ribscicles! DawgMom makes sure we always have ribscicles in the freezer & boy oh boy are they gooood!

I LOVES me some ribscicles!!

I LOVES me some ribscicles!!

4) I am bootimous & I know it! DawgMom even left a mirror out so I can gaze upon myself whenever I want to.

Just look at that bootimous Bullie girl!

Pappy’s confessions:
 1) I am the baby of the bunch, I just turned 1 year old on the 25th! DawgMom gave me a cool new birfday toy that I use for a pillow at night.

Cool new birfday combo pillow/toy

 

 

2) I can cover my ownself up with a bankie when I’m ready to take a nap.

It's chilly, where's my bankie?.

 

3) I hate, hate, HATE chicken livers! They are nasty no matter how DawgMom tries to fix them. I WILL NOT eat them, no way, no how. But I do love me some cottage cheese & bananas, it’s so good I always manage to get it all over my nose.

 4) I am so ready for spring & I am sick of my swimming pool being empty, so I fixed that dumb old pool but good. Bet it won’t hold water now!!

I showed that dumb waterless pool!

 Now, we have to choose 7 bloggies to give this award to and we chose:

Bolo that cool Shar Pei, Daisy the bootimous Pink girl, Gavin & Patty the Bull Terriers, Rudy Tootie the Agility Bedlington, Stanislaw the raw meat eater, Nigel & his crew and All Them Whippets.

If you have already gotten this award, sorry for the double up, and if someone can tell us how to get this award in our sidebar, we’d appreciate it. DawgMom tends to get a little silly about trying to figure things out on this here ‘puter sometimes.

Hucklebutts & good times to all,

Feather Louise, Darla Jean & Pappy Joe

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shameless? Us? What’s yer point?

February 14, 2009

 

Glad yer home~Pappy style

Glad yer home~Pappy style

We have been called many things. Sometimes it’s true, sometimes it’s false, sometimes it’s just plain stoopid. Now, we sometimes take offense at some of the things, but we WILL admit if it’s true. Some examples of “Just Plain Stoopid”~~ 

People see Feather and say What is that? A pig?(eyes roll) Please! A pig? I don’t see a curly tail on Feather Louise, do you? (altho she acts like one sometimes, see below) They have asked DawgMom “Is that a DOG?”  No, it’s a hippo on a leash~Here’s yer sign. They’ve asked if we bumped our heads on something, one lady even asked “Are they made that way?”No, DawgMom watches QVC alot and ordered a face-enhancer~(somebody hand me another sign, I ran out) We have a Bullie friend that tells us that some idiot woman asked his DawgMom if he was an armadillo? What the heck is an armadillo anyways?  Then there was the time The Papster was at the vet when he was a baby and some crazy cat lady looked at his little bum and said “He’s got a fat rear doesn’t he?” He turned to look at her and she was all flustered and said “Oh My, he’s got a fat front too”  She’s one of them that asked if he was made that way. But then, what do you expect out of a crazy cat lady??

Now sometimes DawgMom and DawgDaddy call us things too. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s not so good. Like when we’re being cute, DawgMom calls us “shuggieplums” or something silly like that. She calls Feather~Weezy. She calls Pappy~Buddy Ro and she calls me Miss Jeannie. When we’re being monsters a little bratty, they sometimes use bad words. I swear sometimes I think my registered name might just be ‘DarlaDammit’. And if we’re REALLY bad, they use our whole names. That doesn’t happen very often, and when it does it’s usually the dumb Poodle’s fault. I mean, we hafta yell at him, we just hafta! Have you ever had a Poodle say bad words at you? It ain’t pretty, and he’s such a little drama queen! I mean, really, look at him, all prissed out in his fancy-schmancy clip and with his diaper on. A DIAPER!! He has to wear a diaper cause he doesn’t know how to keep all 4 on the floor and he cocks his leg on anything, INCLUDING us. Where does he get off being a drama queen anyway. Soooo, we hafta yell really loud at him, then DawgMom tells US to be quiet while the Drama Queen walks off laughin!

The Drama "Queen" in HIS diaper

The Drama "Queen" in HIS diaper

Now admit it, wouldn’t you hafta fuss at something that looked like that? I thought so. But, I digress….Today, we have been called ‘shameless’ and you know what? We ARE, cause we are shamelessly asking that you go over to Mango-Minster and leave a comment voting for us in his Bloggy Doggy dawg show. Your comment IS your vote. You can see pictures of all the contestants in the Terrier Group, and you will notice a running theme over there…..all them terriers seem to have beards! So us eggheads that look like armadillos need some support over there. Will you please go support the TN Terrors? And could someone find out just what the heck an armadillo is???

Is DawgMom ‘llergic too?

February 11, 2009
Tryin to help DawgMom to feel better

Tryin to help DawgMom to feel better

I think DawgMom must be ‘llergic to grains too, just like me. I heard her while she was on the phone, tell DawgDaddy  she had a “my-grain” headache. I don’t know what kind of grain a “my-grain” is, but it must be pretty yukky. Just look at that picture of DawgMom up there, look how bad her face looks, that “my-grain” must be really bad stuff. I can’t figure out why DawgMom keeps eatin them “my-grains” if they make her feel so bad and make such uggie faces. That was me last time she ate them grains tryin to help her feel better.  I been tryin to get ever’body in this house to be quiet, apparently when you eat “my-grains” you can’t stand noises. And of course, all these bratty little brothers and sisters only think about themselves and are tryin’ to boss DawgMom into letting them outside every 20 minutes. What’s up with that anyway?  I mean, us Bullies know how to be good, but not them little monsters, brats, brothers and sisters of ours. This is what Darla is doin so she don’t make too much noise, playin tent games. See her white stripe on her nose in the lower right corner?

Darla tryin to be quiet

Darla tryin to be quiet

 Maybe DawgMom needs to start eatin the raw diet like we do, then she won’t have them “my-grains” layin around, making her eat them. I’m just at my wit’s end tryin to figure out what to do for her. It worries me when she don’t feel good. I follow her everywhere she goes just in case she needs me or something. I know she appreciates me being so attentive, she told me I was her little “Scotch” not sure what that means, but she told DawgDaddy I was like a piece of tape on her butt. She said I was doing a good job takin care of her. It’s not really that hard, this is what we have been doing for most of the day.

We all try to help her if she needs it

We all try to help her if she needs it

That was last time she ate “my-grains” DawgDaddy sneaked in on us and took a picture of us all trying to be close and snuggie to DawgMom. I hope she feels better soon, it’s hard tryin to keep all the little monsters dogs in line around here by myself. I hope she will learn her lesson and stop eatin them “my-grains” I told her, she’s probably ‘llergic just like me. Well, it’s time for me to go get all the little brats dogs back in the house, then I’m off to go back to bed with DawgMom, I hope DawgDaddy doesn’t work late tonight, being a nurse is hard work.

Little brothers and sisters….

February 8, 2009

can be a real pain in a Bullie’s butt sometimes. Remember how I told you we live here with little brothers and sisters, well I thought I would introduce one of them to you. See when DawgMom and DawgDaddy got married back in June of 2007, all of us became a family. DawgDaddy had 6 of us and DawgMom had 8 of us. We became something like a Doggie Brady Bunch. So I’d like you to meet Cissy. She is not the youngest, but she is pretty little, so I guess she would be like Cindy’s counterpart, their names are alike. She’s bratty like Cindy too.

Hoggin the bed

Hoggin the bed

Pappy says: Here’s the story of a lovely lady, who was bringing up 8 very lovely pups….

Darla says: Pappy!! Hush up! Feather’s tryin to tell a story!

Pappy: I’m tellin’ a story too, didn’t you hear me? “Here’s the story”??

Cissy says: Ya’ll knock it off! Feather is tryin to introduce me! Sheesh, ya’ll really are Bull TerrOrs!!

Feather says: Please ignore them, they are sooo rude! I’m gonna tell DawgMom not to give them any chicken feet tomorrow

Anyway, I was trying to say, when they got married, we all moved in together and all of us got along really good. Cissy is a little black Chiwawa, Chiwaawaa, Messican Taco Bell dawg, and talk about bossy, man is she ever! DawgMom says it’s because she came from such a bad past.

 DawgMom got her out of the animal shelter in D.C. and she was really sad. She was really scared of everybody and everything, she would scream, shoot a turd at the same time and try to bite anybody that came close to her. She was REAL skinny too and DawgMom says her first stoopid owner was mean to her.  That’s how come DawgMom named her Cissy, cause she was a sissy about everything. She was even afraid to go poop, she would start shaking real bad and start whining and when she finally couldn’t hold it any longer and did poop, she would run back in the house and hide under the bed shaking for a long time, like she was afraid she would get in trouble or something! She was afraid of everything. She’s not anymore though. DawgMom has had her for 6 years now and we think she is about 8 years old.

She's beggin, like always

She's beggin, like always

Now, Cissy thinks she is the boss of everything and everybody. She even bosses DawgDaddy sometimes, but he just laughs at her. She bosses me alot because I like to do my head-thing at her. I bow down so I’m real close to the ground like she is and shake my head back and forth at her. It drives her crazy! I think it’s funny and take off hucklebutting all through the house just to make her chase me. She’s like a piranha on crack! All you can see is big white streak (me) with a little black and white flash (Cissy and her teeth) running behind and she sounds like an over grown bumble bee when she growls and snarls. It’s is just too funny.

Pappy says: Till the one day when this lady met this fellow, and they knew it was much more than a hunch…

Darla says: Will ya KNOCK IT OFF! I’m trying to hear Feather!

Pappy says: that this group would somehow form a family, that’s the way we all became the Doggie Brady Bunch!

Cissy says: That’s it! I’m tellin’! MOOOOOMM!

Schmoozin DawgDaddy's dinner

 

Well that’s just great!  Now thanks to Pappy’s singing and teasing everybody, then Cissy screeching for DawgMom, we have to get off the computer and go to bed! Thanks alot ya’ll! I was going to tell everybody about  Mango Minster,  and go see who all was entered in this neat bloggy doggie show, but I can’t now! Ya’ll just wait, what goes around comes around and I’ll get ya’ll back!

Pappy says: Doggie Brady Bunch, Doggie Brady Bunch, that’s the way we all became…

Darla says: STOP! IT! ALREADY! STOOOOOPPP!

Cissy says: and they say little dogs never shut up! You ask me, it’s those terrOrs that never shut up!

Hey, Listen up!

January 30, 2009

Playing with stuffieMy name is Chico, and it looks like I have been left out of the introductions around here!

I am living in this mad house for a while as a foster dog, but it looks like Feather some Bullies seem to think I’m something akin to a red-headed step-child! Well, Hello, I am WHITE, not red! Even my ear markings are brindle, no red to be found anywhere, thankyouverymuch!Enjoying a turkey leg

I know DawgMom is not my permanent DawgMom, but for now, she is, so let’s not leave me out, I AM a Bull Terrier after all! Just because I can’t say “Rufus is my uncle” (ahem! Pappy) or “I won Best of Variety once and got a point” (ahem! Feather) or “I have a pedigree, ya know” (ahem! Darla) that does not make me chopped liver! Wait!  Liver? I heard DawgMom say that was what we are having  for dinner, I loves me some liver, it’s good….oh! wait!  back to what I was saying……

First of all to Darla, I have a pedigree too, just because I don’t have any papers that you can read it on, I do have a Mama & a Daddy somewhere in this world! Besides, you’re just jealous that I like DawgDaddy as much as you do!Playing

To Feather: A point? What’s yer point? A point for what? You buying things out of Dog Catalogs and collecting them? Who cares about your old point? I mean, what good is it doing you? Does it get you extra treats or something?? I didn’t think so.

To Pappy: Rufus? Who is Rufus? Do I know him? Am I supposed to know him? I got uncles too, just because I can’t tell you who they are, does NOT mean I don’t have them (to DawgMom or anyone else: whatsa uncle anyways?)

So, I would appreciate it if you would all give me the acknowledgement I deserve! I mean one day, I will not be here, I will be in my forever home and then what are you going to do? You won’t have me around to talk to, or play with, or anything and let’s face it, I do know how to play some pretty cool games.

Oh and another thing, I don’t see ya’ll “sitting pretty” when DawgMom asks you to, now do I? No, I most certainly do not! Again, thankyouverymuch!

Now, for those of you out there that are reading this, I am a really good boy, DawgMom says I will make a great forever companion for someone someday, like I didn’t know that already. I ignore the little bratty dogs that live here, I ignore those things with feathers that live here, and yell at me I might add. All I want to do is play and love on the 2-leggeds I meet.  DawgMom says if you think you might want to adopt me and make me your very own forever companion visit The Bull Terrier Club of America website and read all about Bull Terriers. I do have to admit, we are not the breed for everyone, we do take alot of work, time and energy to live with. If you think you can handle our breed’s quirks and demands, then go for it and fill out an Adoption form here.

surveying1Now that I have officially introduced myself, I welcome any comments and I will try to answer any questions you might have.

Until next time,

Hucklebutts, sloppy kisses and Bullie hugs all around

(note from DawgMom~~My dearest Chico, Rufus is CH Rocky Top’s Sundance Kid.  He is actually Pappy’s Great-Uncle, which means Rufus is Pappy’s grandfather’s brother. Clear enough? 🙂  He won Best in Show at Westminster in 2006, which is a big, BIG deal to all us Bull Terrier humans. Now I know, being a show dog is not everything, but Pappy is very proud of his uncle, as well he should be. So please, indulge him a bit, he is just a baby after all, he’s only 11 months old. You are a very sweet boy and I will miss you when you go to your forever home, but while you are here with us, we will treat you like you are our own, NOT like a red-headed step-child)

Let us introduce ourselves….

January 28, 2009

We are 3 Bull Terriers living with our humans and a bunch of little brothers and sisters. We live in NE TN, so does that makes us “Hillbilly Bull Terriers”?? 

My name is Feather Louise, I am a 4 y/o white girl and even if the others say different, I AM the Queen of the house, I was here first, that makes me Queen Bullie!

Feather

Then there is Darla Jean, she’s a 3 y/o solid brindle Bullie girl, well she has a little white on her chest and toes, but that’s ok, she’s mostly striped dirty brown. She is more of a Daddy’s girl and even tho she doesn’t think so, she is the Bullie Princess of the house. Just cause Daddy says she’s Queen, doesn’t make it so, does it Mom?

Darla

Last, but certainly not least, there’s the brat baby Bullie, Pappy Joe, he is only 11 months old and is a tee-total brat puppy for sure. Mom thinks he’s cute, but then again, Mom is getting old and most of the time, we figure it’s just her suffering from half-timers disease. Besides, how can something that weighs 60 pounds already be cute??

Somebody's been diggin

Anyways, we will all be taking turns writing in this here blog and sometimes I guess Mom will probably write about things too. We all hope you enjoy our tales of life in NE TN and how much fun we Bull Terriers can have!

We have lots of brothers and sisters, we have birds that yell at us, and we have a Bearded Dragon too. Well the Bearded Dragon really belongs to our boy, who is not a boy anymore, he growed up and moved out to his own house but left that lizard here for a while. We don’t get to see the lizard much cause he’s mean! He puffs his gizzard beard thingy out at us when he sees us, so we just leave him alone.

I do want to make one thing clear….we do NOT think it’s funny when Mom or Dad calls us “The Bull TerrOrs” or “The Bull TerrOr-ists”  That is soooo not true! I think it has something to do with Mom’s half-timers disease, but Darla says they just think they are being funny. For the record, we are NOT terrOrs, nor are we terrOr-ists, we just know how to have fun and don’t mind showing it.

I will try to post as often as Mom will let me have the ‘puter,  or if something exciting happens or if I just feel like fussing.  Hope you will continue to read about our adventures.

Thanks for stopping by,

Miss Feather Louise and her co-horts, Darla & Pappy
