Your Cheatin' Heart and Gluttony

Sorry gang for my long absence! It's been busy here around the homeplace. Geesh-where do I start? How about Saturday? That's when it all began to get busy. Dad left early in the morning to go somewhere that Mom said "he was going cheatin' on me" My mind reeled with the possibilities! So to keep my mind off his whereabouts, she took me for a walk first thing in the morning. I love weekends when we get to spend time together! After our walk, she let me take a nap while she did some errands till about lunchtime. In she came with bags of good smelling stuff that I had to poke my nose into and inhale deeply as she was trying to get them in the house. After she put all the goodies away, she whisked me off to see her friend Phyllis at the nursing home. Mom was pleased that I was so well behaved-even when a little sheltie passed by in the hall I just sat and watched as she passed by. Va Va Va Voom! Anyway, back to my story. I even went so far as to gently crawl up in Phyllis's bed, look out her window and then lay down beside her and let her pet me. Phyllis used to have 2 dogs of her own and she enjoys seeing me. Then when we got back home, Mom took me for another walk! That's when I knew that Dad had done something seriously wrong.
So when Dad left in the morning he had alot of huntin' paraphenalia with him which usually means he's gonna smell heavenly when he comes home. And smell heavenly he did. But what really bothers me is I smelled another dog. No, let me correct myself,
other DOGS! What the heck, I thought! Mom was right, he went out runnin' around with other dogs behind my back. He should know that I would sniff him out when he got home. He tried to make nice with me and explain that he and my uncles went on a pheasant, quail and chucker hunt (a chucker is some kind of bird but I couldn't find it in the dictionary so it might not be spelled right) with FOUR other dogs. Hello! I'm a retriever here! My feelings are beyond hurt! He said they were setters and trained to do that work. I could do it if somebody showed me, I know I could. But nooooooooooo, he went and paid a king's ransom to do have this affair of his. I guess I'll get over it but it's gonna take time, I tell ya. I went to bed more than just a little miffed.
So Sunday rolled around and it got a little better 'cuz my uncles all came over and they deep fried all those birdies up and I got to eat some of those deep fried treats! Yummy! My aunts also brought all kinds of salads, beans, fruit and desserts. There sure was some miserable humans after all that gluttony. (Serves Dad right!)
Now I'm gonna tease you with this next bit of info. Mom and I are working on a pretty cool post and we have the words all put together but this one requires some Photoshop work and neither of us are very skilled at that. So patience, please in this matter-we'll try and make it worth the wait.
UPDATE: I just got a very helpful tip from my friends, Abbey and Bosley for my Photoshop help. (Thanks Abbey and Bosley!) This may speed up the process. Until then, I'm gonna try and whip around to all your bloggies and have a chat with you.
Woofs and slobbers!
Chester

Gettin' a little fresh air last night



Pee. Ess. My toe is feeling much better now. I don't limp much at all unless I do a Wild Willy (aka: Zoomie) across the yard and catch it the wrong way. Time will tell as to what happens to my nail. Still considering going to the Dock Dive at Harrisburg next month if it isn't too late. Thanks for all your concern!

Good news about your nail. We were worried when we hadn't heard from you in a while. Did the Chuck taste like chicken?

Nibbles Treats asked: Did the Chuck taste like chicken?
As a matter of fact, it did. Now I'd like to know just HOW you know that? You weren't one of the "other dogs", were you? Huh? Huh? Huh?

Sounds like a busy weekend, and I am glad to hear your toe is better. Sorry your dad was cheating on you, I know you could have done just as well if not better than those other 4 dogs. Can not wait to see what you are photo shopping. =)

Oh Chester Mom didn't like the idea of getting her picture taken when she gets out of the shower. I don't think she will take anymore pictures of my backside!!!

Wrooo wrooo,
I had a nail issue this week too...
I broke one way back and it bled all over the place...
Rama had to snip it the rest of the way off and I know it hurt her lots worse than it did me...
But I got lots of extra hugs and treats, so I played it up-Poor Pitiful Sassy...
I really think you're a cutie patootie,
Lots of licks,
Sassy

Buddy and Zack are a little jealous! teeheehee

Chester, go on strike until they get you trained as a hunting dog. Trust me, you will LOVE field work! But you gotta get the manipulation machine goin' there, big guy. Work 'em! Work 'em! Work 'em! Love, Sally
