Tues. 2nd March 2010 - Little Whiskey

See this?  This is next door's dog, Poor Little Whiskey.  Well, they just call him Whiskey.  He's a cross between a Yorkshire terrier and a shi'tzu (gosh, I do hope I spelt that right!).  Just a puppy - about 15 or 16 weeks old I should think.  A yappy little bundle with a heck of a woof.  Loves to play - don't they all at that age?  


AND OUR SALLY, THE WHIMP, IS TERRIFIED OF HIM!


She is many times bigger than him,  She would flatten him if she accidentally sat on him..  And she won't go out for a wee if he's out.  

His pack leader, as she has styled herself,  passed him to me over the fence the other day so I could have a cuddle of him (he's that sort of dog) and our Sal went slinking off into the bedroom and wouldn't come back until he had gone.  When she did come back she was very obviously miffed with me.  If you have ever lived with a dog you'll know what I mean when I say she gave me some right old-fashioned looks, as if I'd stood in something interesting that she would love a sniff at but won't come near.


Oh no!  First the camera, now a ickle-wickle puppy!  It'll be spiders next.


Keith has announced his next project.   It's Keefy's Patent Drinking fountain for hedgehogs.  All will be revealed no doubt!

Jess is the same. When the pups from the big house come down to ours she is friendly to them, but you can tell she is hoping that they will leave real soon, and she is ever so happy when they do!! That is a cute puppy though, kind of hard to resist cuddling when they are that cute. Wish us luck on our grand adventure today. Won't be near a comp for at least a week, but I have my cell. Look for a message from me at some point. I wonder how far you will be from us??? Perhaps we will be able to visit more often?? One can only hope!! xxoo

Awwww, BLESS! What an adorable l'il dog! x No wonder your Sal is nervy though - Whiskey looks like a dominant little tyke, but what a great combination of two cute little breeds!

Keith's project sounds good - he should go to the Dragon's Den with that one - I'd be in. I have not yet told Jasper that the K-man is planning to assist hedgehogs - it might be too much for his peace of mind at present (see forthcoming blog post!)...

We haven't forgotton the red onion soup recipe - should be with you tomorrow, paws crossed...!

And here is Jasper's Old Jokes Corner:
Q: What's a Shi-tzu?
A: One with no penguins.

Happy Friday!

love,
Ruth xxxxxxxxx

Is that not THE cutest little dog....sigh. I just want to pick it up and hug and love on it.

Grammy Staffy said...

I am sorry that Sally is miffed with you. I hope that she has forgiven you by now. Heidi gets miffed at me if I go to the fence and pet the neighbor's dogs....but she forgives me pretty quickly if I give her a treat.
Have you heard any more from Marie? I am glad that they found a home. I hope she can find a job soon.
I'm sending hugs, Lura

Angie, Your comment just cracked me up! Having lived in the south my whole life, I take for granted that everyone knows what a deer cooler business is. Hunting deer is a big hobby here and when hunters kill them, they take them to cooler business who cut up the meat, wrap it and cool it for the hunters. It is a hard business and this little woman is hardly 5 feet tall. A little power house...like your lovely dog!!!

You are in the "credits" (your prize at the moment, until I can come up with a better one) of my post "Number one Cherry Blossom Lane"

Ora said...
