All Decked Out

I love lying on the porch on a sunny day. SIGH, But it appears there ar no more sunny days left in forever.

I wanted to get all decked out for Halloween and dress up like a lion, but that has been cancelled too…due to nature, (the most destructive force on the planet).

Now I have to sit home inside waiting for yet another one of natures attacks on the planets inhabitants, “Frankenstorm”.  Which is expected to sometime early this week and last 21 days, (in dog years) and maybe even more! I am thinking this is going to down a lot of trees and ruin the habitat for many rabbitts, deer, and my cousins the Cyote’s. Never mind all of the fish named Wanda or anything else. I think it is starting off as hurrican Sandy , or Sarah, or Susan, or something like that. It is not named Hurricane Marie..or hurricane Meatball or Hurricane Chris, so don’t blame us!   Why do they name them after common people names anyway? Why not Hurricane Tasmanian Devil? Or Hurricane Dracula?

So apparently this “super storm” is going to wreck a lo tof stuff, make life miserable and be a pain in the ass. Woohooo nature! …(that was sarcasm….and from a dog). So I am going to be inside most of the time, I won’t be able to spend anytime on the deck and when I do go out to pee I will be pelted in my face with the rain and the winds, I hate that!  And to make matters worse I don’t even get to stay out long. I get too wet, atree migth fall on me, stuff above me is moving all around and that freaks me out!

Maybe we will get a massive amount of snow and by the time it is over we will wake up and it will be Spring?

Life Lesson: It is always nice and Sunny…but usually somewhere else.

Playing With Someone My Own Size!

What do you know, I am not a Freak. There are others like me!

Everyone kept asking my mom and dad, “why am I so big”? “Why do you guys want a big dog”? Some people would even walk away from me, avoid me, and ignore me. Sometimes it kinda’ made me feel bad. Like I don’t belong. Like I should move to “the island of misfit toys”.

Some other dogs would bark at  me, not a “come lets play” bark, but more of a “hey you, stay away from me” bark.

Sometimes I would have other dogs to play with and they would be friendly, but they were to small, so I always had to be carefull or you could tell the attached humans were worried about all sorts of things. (these worrying type of  humans are especially hard to train).

Then one day while playing in the park after a lot of running around, boy was I tired, but then out of nowhere, “BAM!” Some guy pulls up and from out of his car pops a doggy my size! Well almost.

His name is “Moonshine” he’s a Cane Corso, sort of like my Italian cousin. Moonshine is 9 months old and 120lbs. I am 9 1/2 months and 145lbs. so it is kinda’ close.  I am still big enough to drool on his back…..and his head. We had so much fun running around, he was very nice and I was also on my best behavior, (this is code words for we didn’t try to hump each other also no growling, biting, or snapping).

It was good to meet someone like me and to learn I am not alone. I can’t wait for the Beacon dog park to be built so we can meet and play again. Hopefully I will find more “freaks” like me.

Life Lesson: No matter who you are, you are not alone. It is always possible to find a kindred spirit somewhere and it will come when you least expect. Don’t give up!
