An update

Okay before I put up the wonderful butt picture the other day we had not blogged in forever. I'm sorry about that. So I thought I would fill you in on what's happened around here.

Flash is still himself. He doesn't do much but hide when the storms come. He did go through a time of not wanting to eat but is all better now. He's still a dorkus though.

Shelby aka fatty aka the stupid cat that lives in this house is still a stupid cat. What more do you need to know about him?

Nothing new with Dad.

Our girl is in the 8th grade and is almost 14 years old. Holy Moly. She thinks she knows everything as most teenagers do but she pets me so I don't care.

Our boy is in the 3rd grade and is almost 9. He went to school for a little while but then there was some big problems with the school and now mom is homeschooling him. He is home almost all the time which is great for me and Flash. Oh and look he gets to read comic books for school. :)

Mom is just as lazy as ever. She never cleans but that is nothing new. If she was any lazier she would be just like Shelby.

As for me I am just as awesome as ever.

Hey everyone it's me Flash and I am here for a Doggie Service Announcement. I have noticed that lately a few of my friends have written about escaping from their houses or their yards. Now my dear friends I know this seems like a good idea at the time and seems fun while you are running around your yard or down the street with your mom or dad running after you screaming but I want to tell you all about what happens when something goes wrong.
A few years ago I was living in Kentucky with the family. We had a nice big yard and let me tell you I loved that yard but I also liked to get out of the fence by climbing under it and go running around. Well the first few times I did it I got caught right away. One time mom and dad didn't notice right away and couldn't find me but I came back home after a few hours. But let me tell you why I am advising everyone to stay in your yard or house and never leave.
Believe me I know. So listen closely. The last time I got out of my yard. I couldn't find my way home and I was gone for 8 DAYS. I didn't have any food to eat and no one to love and pet me. I was outside in the elements and had to hide from deer and coyotes and everything else. I stunk and my nose got all scraped up and hurt. My feet hurt also. I was scared and sure that I would never make it home again. Lucky for me I finally did find my way home, as mom and dad couldn't find me at all, but not every dog is so lucky.
So listen to me everyone and don't run away. It isn't good. Stay home and let your people love you and feed you and pet you and love you some more and give you cookies.

who now knows better then to run off

So our friend Chef tagged us ages ago to do this and we are finally doing it. Sorry it has taken us so long.
So we had to go to our photos and go to the 6th picture in the 6th folder. This is it. It's not very good quality but it was from the day dad came home.

It's not friday

but it's me Flash. I'm here to fill you all in on what's been going on here since we never get to blog anymore. It is just downright sad I tell you.

Okay well it's to hot to do anything here. I want to go outside and mom won't let me. She is always saying "Flash come in here before you die of heatstroke." Big party pooper that she is.

Go visit our cousin Diamond. She is back to blogging after FOREVER (Auntie Shalon was even lazier then our mom) and you all have to see the gigantico waterbowl she has in her backyard. I couldn't use it if I had one but Diamond and her little brother Pulver can.

Our kids have been out of school for a month now. They only have a month and a half left before they go back. Our boy spends time playing video games and hanging out with his friends who live on the next street over. Our girl spends most of her time in her room texting on her phone. Mom says it is what teenagers do nowadays. They do play with us and our girl feeds us every night so we can't complain to much.

Dad got a new job. He's still in the Army they just gave him something else to do. He doesn't like it much but what can he do? Nothing

Mom is a lazy bones. She got done with school for the year. Her last term she got a 3.8 gpa so she had a pretty swelled head for a few weeks. Now she sits around doing nothing. She keeps talking about cleaning the house because Pappy is coming to visit next week but doesn't get off her bum to do it. She will probably start 2 days before and clean like a maniac like she usually does.

Oh and here is a picture of the fat man because well I like that he terrorizes Peanut.

That's the haps from here.

Later gators

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to our dad who we love lots and lots. Have fun playing your video games today. Glad you are home this father's day.
Oh and mom says she would also like to wish Pappy a happy fathers day from her. Even though he probably will not read this since he is riding around the country on his motorcycle right now. And no Grammie is not with him.
Here is a picture of dad and I sleeping this morning that mom took with her new phone.

Happy Belated Birthday to our Grammie

As you all know our Grammie is Moco's mom and moco is our mom's 4 legged sister. Well it was Grammie's birthday on Thursday and you know what happened? Our mom missed it!!!!!!!!! Yep she thought the 4th was friday and so she didn't even wish her own mother a happy birthday on the right day. What kind of a daughter is that? Hmmph not a very good one I tell you. Well since we had to wait for mom to help us type this post our wishes are also late but Flash and I knew Grammie's birthday was the 4th and that the 4th was Thursday and we were sending Grammie good wishes on the right day.
So Happy Belated Birthday Grammie. We won't tell everyone you are now 999 years old.

On Memorial Day

we remember all who have died in service of their country.

It's about time

Oh my goodness we are getting no help in blogging at all. Mom says she is busy with her 5 college classes. Then last week she went into the dollar general and applied for a job. The manager hired her right there but they have to do a background check and mom hasn't heard anything back from them. She is going around the house saying they probably don't want her to work now but it would be nice if they told her that.
Anyway we missed blogging about Flash's adoption day last week and he is complaining about the fact that he hasn't been able to blog in forever so mom promised to help him on friday.

Now on to what you all want to hear about My mortal enemy. Okay well mom says it is more of my nemesis but I like mortal enemy better so that is what I go with. Now you all know how I can open almost anything. The fridge (which is why there is a babylock on it). The oven and the broiler. I can open doors sometimes also. Well mom and dad had the trash can on top of the fridge but my boy couldn't reach it and was leaving trash just whenever. Then they put it in the laundry room but even with a baby guard on the door knob I would sometimes get it open and help myself. So mom went searching for trash cans. She bought this thing.

Now we've had it for a little while and I hate it. I wouldn't even allow her to put up a picture of the real one that resides in our house. It is awful. I can not get that thing open no matter how hard I try. Mom actually laughs at me now when I try. Let me tell you. I am not happy. I am not happy at all. My goal is to get into this trash can and get the yummy goodness inside but so far it hasn't worked.
Okay mom is making me put a link to the trash can. Here it is. Oh and she also wanted to point out that it comes with stuff to anchor it to a wall but she hasn't used that and I still can't get it open. She says it was really expensive but it was worth every penny. I think she should have spent her money on something else.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to all of our friends. In a few days I will fill you all in on my mortal enemy which has come to reside in my house.

almost wordless wednesday

I, Shelby, have hijacked the blog to bring you lovely pictures of me.

Wednesday, March 11, 2009


We were visiting our friends Cooper and Dozer and what they posted about we find just shameful. So we've copied their post below since they explain it very well.

Shameful Website - Cooper's Rant

I was just reading the Pet Connection blog and came upon a website they were discussing where you can pay big bucks to have your dog "certified" as a Service Dog so you can take your dog into places that normally do not allow animals (Post Office, restaurants, stores, etc). And people are buying this "certification" so they can get an animal vest and patches for $365.00. And they tell you right up front that they don't provide any training and you self-administer a "test" to determine if your dog is a Service Dog. This is just a way that you can circumvent the law.

Now I realize that I am an older dog and you young pups may think I am set in my ways, but this is not a "service", it is a disservice to the many wonderful dogs that train and provide service to all the people in the world who really need it. To buy a fake vest just so you can take your pet into the shoe store because it is more convenient for you is shameful.

I've gotten myself a little hot under the collar so Mum says I need to go have a little nap while she figures out how to contact these folks and in a nice way give them a piece of her mind. (I love it when Mum gets a burr under her butt and gets her Thesaurus out to tell folks six ways to Sunday how naughty they are!)

My turn

To show you some of my puppy pictures. Here I am playing football
Relaxing on a box after playing football

That baby gate was to keep me out of the bedrooms. The footstool was to let my kids get over the gate

I thought I might be able to use it to get over but it didn't work.

Now I would just knock the babygate over and be on my way to where I want to go.
I'm a little over 3 months old in all these pictures. Man I was a cute puppy who turned into a handsome guy.

Puppy pics

Mom had all our puppy pics on a zip disk. The old computer had the zip drive on it. Well she finally got an external zip drive so she could see all the pictures (baby pics of our boy also among all the others). Here are some of my puppy pics.
Peanut checking me out



Look wasn't I little? I fit under Peanut's big ol chest

In this one. I'm a couple months older. Still a puppy though

Later Taters,
Flash (who's still really cute)
