it was a dark, cold night.......part 2

there we were, PinkDogg, Spot and me, alone, in the dark, wondering ...........

we heard a noise ........................... strange steps coming up to the front door, then the screen door slowly opeeennninggggg .................... then, the front door handle ratttttlled, then ratttttlled again. “Who was doin’ that?” we wondered, “and why ??? “

then the footsteps retreated and went around to the back of the house. “Oh no”, we wondered, “did anyone remember to lock the porch door???” then we heard ................... squeeeeekkk – the sound of the porch door opening ..................... “Did anyone lock the door from the porch to t he house? ?” – “they often forget” ................

we had to plan quickly. PinkDogg wanted to stay together – “safety in numbers” he said.

but i thought we had to split up, just in case the “unthinkable” happened. PinkDogg, with my help, slid into a desk drawer and I closed it after him.

Spot made his way to a shelf, and assumed a disguise.

it was up to *ME * to confront the intruder. i stealthily slipped into the hall and tip-pawed into the kitchen. it was too dark, and the table blocked my view. the only way to discover *WHO* the intruder was, was, was ………… to JUMP on the kitchen table!!

“i’m sorry Mom, I know you don’t like me up there” , but duty called!!

i ….. quietly….. made the leap and

!!!!!!!!! **CRASH** !!!!!!!

“What was that???”

i heard fumblings in the dark ……. "what was happening ????? "

i heard steps across the dining room, and sensed someone ……. reaching ……. reaching …… i got ready to pounce …… ready to defend my turf ….. then **!*!BRIGHT LIGHTs !*!** were in my eyes, I ~ ~squinted ~ ~ and tried to shield myself ...........................................




i heard ...................... a VOICE ...............................

...eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkk ...........................................

the dark is almost here

our least fav'rite time of year is when the time changes at the end of october. makes it get dark an hour earlier. that means that by the middle of november when my Mom gets home from work, it's all dark. she hates it 'cause she says it feels like she has no life. gets up in the dark, leaves work in the dark. i hate it 'cause if it's dark, i can't go out in the yard when she comes home. bummer. i better squeeze in as much yard time as i can. mmmmm, love to munch on that grass.

it's Saturday

well, it's always better when it's Saturday 'cause that means my Mom is around. those noisy guys were only here part of the day and then they left. so i got to meander around in the back yard this afternoon. i tried really hard to catch a chipmunk ( my Mom thwarted my efforts by tappin' on the window and scarin' the chipbut i still had fun. ) now i'm tired and will take a nap in my workshop box with the Dad and my stuffed bunny. i heard rumours about a special treat later to make up for all the noise this week, so it seems i have somethin' to look forward to. i also heard somethin' about my Mom's next trip for work, which is to Hawaii. i don't know where that is, but it sounds like it's far, far away and like she's gonna be gone for a real long time. this is so not fair.

tuxedo bear update again

hi everyone. things have quieted down here a little. there are still contractor guys crawlin' around but at least that bobcat thingy and the jackhammer thingy are done. loud, loud, loud and dust everywhere. my Mom is upset about how dirty it made everything. but, on another subject, what's really fun is that the tuxedo bear at the washington zoo got named. his name is Tai Shan, which means Peaceful Mountain in Chinese. and he just continues to get cuter and cuter. well, he's a Tuxie, how could he not???? some people got picked to be at the naming ceremony. i was dissapointed it wasn't me, but maybe we'll go to the zoo and see the baby bear another time.

just thought you might want to know.

i'm sorry, my Mom is really weird lately.....

well. i'm survivin' all the turmoil around here. i'm not happy 'bout it, but i'm survivin'. today something called a bobcat was here to break up the driveway and some guy was in the garage with another thing called a jackhammer takin' out that floor. they still have to take out the front walk, then pour all the cement. i think they should be arrested for disturbin' the peace. my peace! and quiet. which i used to have. i can only hope it won't last too long.
my Mom wants me to show you somethin' that she just got. she calls it her "tuxedo purse". (and yes, it's fake fur!!) what's next??? a tuxedo refrigerator or dishwasher?? when will it end?????? she's obsessed with tuxedo..........
(maybe i shouldn't have encouraged her with that tuxedo stapler???)

i'm glad this week is over!

hi all. well, my Mom got home very late last night - or, very early this morning, dependin' how you look at it, i guess. anyway, she was very tired 'cause she worked lots of hours out there in aryzona. all i know, is i'm glad she's back. those guys at my house were not good. they were noisy and stomped around. i heard that they're takin' out the driveway and garage floor next week - oh the noise, oh the noise. i wonder if my Mom has thought about kitty tranqs?? anyway, last night i slept on my Mom's head. then today she went to Costco and came home with a bunch of stuff. plus some boxes that i like. life is good.

another trip and a bunch of noise

my Mom is going away again, tomorrow morning. i know it will just be until friday night, but i still don't like it. at all. plus there are guys here working. they're remodelin' the garage to make it into a workspace for the Dad. plus they're doin' all kinds of stuff in the basement and that's where my bathroom is. it's kinda hard for a guy to do what he's gotta do when there are strangers around. my Mom just put a bathroom upstairs for me in the hall, so that should be better. and, i just heard them talkin' about "gutting" their bathroom on the first floor. don't fishes get gutted?? all very confusing. well, i won't be able to be online until saturday, so bye ~~wavey~~ until then.....

my photographer did not take a great picture, so it's a little hard to figure out what this is. what it is, is my Mom gettin' weird. in her quest for all things Tuxedo, she found a zeebra pez thingy so she gave it to me sayin' it's a Tuxedo pez thingy. first of all, i don't even know what pez is or why i'd want them. they smell funny. my Mom said they're lemon flavor. why on earth would a cat want somethin' lemon????second, unless you have thumbs, it's a little hard to open. i don't want to seem ungrateful, 'cause a present is a present, but why couldn't she have given me somethin' useful like shrimp???? Mom's are often hard to understand.

my Mom's home!

well, Mom came home and is very glad to be back, she said she missed me whole bunches and even had trouble sleeping 'cause i wasn't wrapped around her neck to keep her nice and cozy, and i'm glad she's back too! thanks to all my poodin friends for the messages for my Mom to have a safe trip and hoping that my hurty toe gets better. so far, my Mom has just looked at it quickly and thinks it looks better (i've been lickin' it) but said we need to 'nspect it better under the light.....but right now, we're gonna go unpack her suitscase. but, we're not putting it away 'cause she has another trip NEXT WEEK!!! grumblegrumblesheeshgrumblewhat'supwiththatgrumblegrumble........

More over the weekend.

my Mom's birthday

well, today was my Mom's birthday and she had a real fun day. she loved her Tuxedo stapler and even stapled some real 'mportant papers with it. my sister Casey and i got her some chocolate covered cashew nuts and the Dad got her some clothes from her fav'rite store Excelsior so she was real happy. she took the day off work and went to see a movie called March of the Penguins which was 'bout Emperor penguins, big black & white birds who live in Anarctica and have a real tough life. hey, they're black and white, they must be Tuxedo birds!!! well, i'd rather be a Tuxedo poodin and be comfy on my couch. Happy Birthday Mom!!!!

my Mom's birthday present

well, in a couple of days, it's gonna be my Mom's birthday. she says she's too old (i think she's 'bout as old as Williams' Mom) to celebrate, but i just had to get her a present. and, since she loves all things tuxedo, i got her this!

i just know she'll love it!!
