The Breakup

Well, it's done. We've given Pappy to a lovely family. They have a preteen son to continually throw balls to the Papster, a teenage daughter who will welcome him on the bed, and a pre-college son to ignore him. I'm sure his life with them will be a happy one.

But Pappy's blog will continue. We are now living with a new pair of dogs I like to call Pappy II and Pappy III, for purposes of continuity. Their official names are Fred (on the left) and Buddy. Fred is thirteen years old and hogs the bed, but we have to honor his wisdom. Buddy is a still athletic eight-years, and constantly thunders up and down the stairs.

Psych! We'll be back with Pappy next week. We're just in Dallas visiting my Mother-In-Law for Christmas.

happy new year to you all. don't tell anyone, but we left gussie at home with gpapaw, and are enjoying having the bed to ourselves. Particularly, don't mention this to gussie, who hasn't missed us at all.

Merry Christmas Pappy!

I hope you get lots of chewy toys, treats and hugs, and have heaps of fun!

Luv your ol pal Chucksie Bux

Wow! You had us fooled! Glad to hear it was a joke on us! It just wouldn't be the same without Pappy.

What a terrible thought. Blogging without Pappy... You had us fooled for a while... I was beginning to look really sad... I am so glad that you aren't not there!

Love and Licks,
Texas (and his humans).

P.S. We have had a great Christmas so far. Hope you have too!

Gus's People,
Mum's the word. Y-may ips-lay are-ay ealed-say.

Same to you big fella. Send a little warmth our way-- it's even cold here in Dallas.

Dachsies and Texas,
Don't worry... Pappy's a keeper. Hope you're having great holidays

Oy you had me in the beginning! I tried sending the rents away to Coasta Rica but the airlines found out there is not such thing as pawpal, so I still have to share the bed.

OMGosh I was having heart failure... thinking how could you give that adorable Pappy away! Phew, glad it wasn't true.
