SweetPea update...you have to read to the end, sorry!


We have had new neighbors since the end of last summer. Other than dropping off welcoming cupcakes for the two children and saying hello, we haven't seen them and only heard them once in a while. Yesterday Bar B Q Steve was out with the cheesy grill from Wallie World getting ready to cook his steak when the kids decided to drop in with their 2 dogs. One dog is a Great Dane named Irish and the other is a mid-size Boxer named Maggie. Penny and Violet were out with us when the 4 visitors arrived.
Long story short, Maggie didn't like either Penny or Violet, Penny didn't like 2 female dogs visiting, Maggie went after Violet and when we put her inside covered in Maggie slobber, Maggie decided to go after Penny. Irish stood on Penny for good measure while Maggie put a tooth puncture in Penny's neck, scratched the top of her head and right ear. When Penny finally got up she was limping. She is fine today...I cleaned her boo-boos and gave her a Rimadyl. So, after our dogs were safely inside, the kids had a great time telling us all of the family secrets. We were told the following items:
1. The oldest child "Z" dissected a squid in class and found the sex organ and it was really gooey.
2. Mom ran over the youngest kid's bike...he is "J."
3. Dad was murdered in California so they moved to Idaho to be close to their grandparents.
4. Step dad works at the local building supply and can give us a good deal they are sure.
5. They have a pregnant cat that was dumped in the street and they named her "Bob." She is black and white, still a kitty really and they have a bed for her under their deck where she is waiting for her babies to be born, mom said they can keep one kitten and will get Bob fixed and that means taking out her sex organ.....all in one breath!
So, we explained how we found Sweetpea, fed her and made a bed for her in the pole building and we all decided to call her BobSweetPea. And we all lived happily ever after. The End.

Good thing you weren't inclined to ask all about their family secrets, huh? LOL

I commented on this weird occurance of kids randomly divulging their family secrets on another blog. It really makes me nervous of what my own kids say to others.

Wishing you well

I don't like dogs either. After all, I'm a damned cat! But I like tomcats! Are there any around on this blog? Is that one in the profile photo?
