Reunion!

What a weekend!

On Friday, right in the middle of my mid-day nap, I got woked up by Daddy! I was fully expecting auntie Nicole, who comes to play fizbee with me every day, but Daddy was home and asked me if i wanted to go to the Farm!

We jumped in the car, which was packed to the gills, which usually means that we are going for a few days, so i was very excited. Though, at first my crate was really stinky because i left an uneaten duck nex in there, ew. Daddy got rid of it for me, but told me i had to ride in the stinky crate anyway, as punishment for not eating that particular dinner!

Anyway, when we got to the farm some of my friends were already there, but not too many, which usually means it's prime fizbee time! Daddy was helping set up some stuff, but me and pip went swimmin and played with everybody.

Daddy slept in a tent and pip and me slept in our crates, and I was really cold. So, i figured as payback for making me sleep in a cold, stinky crate, i'd wake him up before the sunrise. It worked, because daddy didn't seem very happy about that, and only let me pee and not play fizbee like i hoped. oh well.

Saturday was CRAZY!

The reason we came to the farm this weekend was for the NEBCR Reunion. Once i heard what was going on, I figured i'd try to catch up with some of my former foster brudders and sisters, to see how they are doing. Here's who I got to see:

1. Bek! (fka Lune - sorry no pics, she didn't get to hang around all weekend grr.) - Lune like totally haz crushes on me. so much even that she begged her mom Kim to put pictures of me in a way-cool quilt she made for a big Raffle (dog dayz in august). Check it out, I got on there twice!!! (daddy says it's because i am the cutest dog in history, but i thinkz it's because i haz sekret love affare with LunaBek!!)


hey, my sister Bz is on there, and FFB (former foster brudder) Speck too! And Lizzie (more on her in a bit).

While we're talking about cool raffle stuff, foster cuzzin Zoey got this cool birch bark painting done of her! Daddy says he's gonna get one done of me too!



2. Lizzie:

Lizzie spent the weekend doing one of two things: following MY daddy around like a shadow or chomping on this crazy squeaky toy that goes "SQUONKA SQUONKA SQUONKA" reeeeeally loud.

She is a failed foster, like her brother Didge. I get to see them all the time, still, which is nice.

3. CaseyRedDog:

.o0("oh hai, can't talk, gotta go swim")

He is still in his foster home with auntie Suzanne. I bet he gets a doptid soon!

4. Missy (fka Breck)
(ok, so it's an old photo... she wasn't out a lot and i didn't have my camera with me when she was. she's still just as stunning as ever! -ed)

Missy is doing great at agility, and her owner Lori (also an NEBCR Volunteer, but not until after she adopted Missy) is doing great working with her "issues". I don't think there's anything wrong with her... she's purdy.

5. Colin
(bad pic, sorry)

Colin is just as mellow and cool as ever. He only lived here for a little while, but we got along great.

6. Barley
Ok, so Barley only spent one night here when he was a wee pup, but still! He's a hound dog mixed with Border Collie, and i get to see him and his mommy Althea at agility trials a lot.

7. Ella
FFS Ella and her owners showed up and she did nothing but swim and dock dive the whole time! She's no stranger to the Farm, so she knew just where she was when she got there, and didn't even bother to stop and say hi to me (until later) or daddy! She looks fantastic and seemed to have lots of fun.

8. My Mommy! (Flicka)
I got to hang out with my mommy for a while. Daddy says my siblings and I all act a lot alike, and same goes with Flicka. She taught us all how to use our toofs to get our way!!

Here's me and my mom, don't we look alike?


9. Lyn
Lyn got a doptid by auntie Monique and uncle Brian, who own my sister Bz! Daddy fostered her for a while and she had a very broked leg, so i never got to play with her. but she is now all healed up and boy she sure can run! makin up for lost time she sez.

This is Lyn (foreground) with her big brudder Brady.

10. Phoenix
Phoenix only was at my house for a day or so. He got a doptid by NEBCR Volunteer Trisha and he's a very nice, sweet pup who loves to launch himself up onto people. Daddy thinks he's very cute and that he should steal him the next time he sees him.

---

Also at the reunion was my brudder ArthurGood and of course my sister Bz and of course my other sister Flirt and uncle Bodie who both live at the Farm (lucky!)... and i might haz forgotted some others too, but i was very busy with herdin and playing ball and fizbee to stop and talk to everybody.

OH! speaking of fizbees. My EZ Glider collection growed this weekend! Daddy bought me a new purple one, so now i haz BlooFiz, Yellow and Purple! I'm gonna go and drop all 3 of them at daddy's feet while he tries to work once i'm off the computer!

delays, auntie-doptions, udder red dogs, farm!

daddy is calling me a "slacker". he sez that i don't blog enough and to that i sayz i'm too busy herding and fetching stuffs to keep up with it all!

so i figured i should probably catch you up with all the stuff i've been up to... last time i wrote, auntie meg just came back. i spent the last month going over potential homes for auntie meg with daddy. i wasn't about to let her get a doptid by some people that don't like to throw balls!

so yesterday, auntie meg got a doptid by a very nice family only 2 whole towns away from home. she's practically a neighbor! the family has two little kids who she will train to throw tennis balls and to do her bidding. daddy says she's going to be very happy there, and she doesn't have to deal with any other dogs, just her people, so that sounds great. I'll miss you auntie Meg.

speaking of other dogs, a few days ago, daddy came home with, get this... another. red. border. collie. his name is Casey Red Dog and he's a nice enough chap. here he is.


he's kind of a big lunkhead, but he listens to me and listens to daddy. also, he likes to smoosh his fetched toy right into the lap of whoever throwed it for him, therefore making their pants dirty, so he's got that going for him. (getting people dirty is a fun habit of minez!)


daddy says casey red dog is going to live with auntie suzanne, which is just as well, because i'm enough red border collie for this house, thankz you very much!

----

Then today, i got to go TO THE FARM!!!! I guess the weather is getting warm again, so hopefully that means i'll be going out to the farm a lot.

there were a few reasons we went out there. firstly it was because daddy had to pick up a bunch of foodz for me and the pip. also, there was an agility trial and daddy was working the grill. but mostly it was for this:

a bunch of the NEBCR and agility peoples chipped in to get auntie kathy and uncle craig a new golf cart because they are always having people at the farm and it's a really big property and it's no fair for them to have to walk up and down the hill all the time with bad knees and stuff.

(note: thanks for everything Kaig! hopefully this will help minimize the wear and tear. enjoy!!! -d)

til next time!
