C-K-C just checking in

Hi all, it looks like dad is taking over, he changed the account password? to something he could remember. seems to me a smell would a better way to do it. but the humans need to compensate. He still get his face all wet sometimes reading your comments and at night. we have worked out an arrangement and at night I sleep outside of his normal pattern. I guess I have to get used to the change too. before mom and I had a good arrangement, everything changes.

I am to report the stuff he grows is tomatoes, papers? no peppers, radishes, weeds, tarragon and tomato worms, and mint. Dad says the mint are weeds too, but he keeps watering them. I don't like the weeds, they stink. the tomatoes worms he picks and squishes, I sniffed them, but no interest there. I tried to paw one once, it quit moving after awhile so I guess I did good and dad didn't get after me, but he never gives me the chance to again. he keeps asking if I can sniff them out. duh, do I look like a green thing chaser to him??? he gets some funny ideas about my skill set. He did rub me lots when I barked at strangers near the yard and house, golly I love that. He says he's going to try the bark park again. I hope so I really liked it, but we had to stop when mom got too tired. There is a storm coming in and I don't like the noise, i'm glad dad is here. he's a much taller target.
he rubs me when it booms and it makes me feel a little better. the dad isn't too swift for the names we use for the humans so if he goofs it up remember I warned u all. C-K-C.

c-k-c we think your dad is doing a good job for a newbie. You are training him well. Oh I think getting back to the dog park is great. I hope you have lots of fun. Dad always think we can do odd things we don't want to. He will figure it out though

Dearest C-K-C and your dad and family,

we've just caught up with the news here at Tin Tin HQ. We're so sorry to hear about Kathleen's passing, RIP. We're sending you warm hugs and thoughts from way over here.

Well done to your dad for doing such a great job keeping the blog updated.

With sad tail wags and nuzzles...

Sounds like you're getting him trained well, especially if you get to try the dog park again!

We are very sorry to read about Kathleen's passing.

We are cats but we hope that maybe we can be friends. We was checking up on another woofie friend of ours and ended up here.

We think your dad is doing a good job blogging - we hope he keeps it up!

We hope that maybe you will visit us sometime.

Welcome to the world of blogging Dad, C-K-C will guide you well in this new world. And we love those red tomatoes, especially ones from the garden, not the store.

Charlie, you're teaching your dad well! Try to stay safe from these NM monsoons!!! We're not too fond of them either!

Lillie Valentine said...

Boy Charlie. Your dad is a quick learner. He's got this blogging thing down. And remember, all he needs is positive re-inforcement and you can train him to do anything!

Hi CKC! We think your dad is doing a great job so far! Sounds like you are getting lots of nice belly rubs there. How nice!

Have a good weekend now!

I don't know what all the fuss is about tomatoes too. LS seems to love them.

Heya C-K-C,
Great to hear from y'all. Our dad sez that ABQ gets some pretty spectacular thunderstorms, whatever those are, kinda like the 4th of July fireworks echoing all over the lake here. It' good that you and the dad are doing things together and sharing, like when your mom was with you both. It's harder now but youse guys still have each other so hang in there. And don't worry, the dad will keep you safe from storms, that's what dad's are supposed to do, and you let him know when strangers are about. It's a family effort, everyone pitching in to adjust to the new situation and do their part. We look forward to your next posting. We love youse guys.

C-K-C I am sorry about the changes that have happened in your life. You must believe the pain will ease up but you will never forget your mom. We usually go to Roosevelt Park very early in the morning. Maybe we could be friends.

CKC--good job getting your dad to do your typing and then he had his own initiative to make things work better for the two of you. Me and my pack are so glad you have each other! We don't like tomatoes either. Or mint. Corn, yes.

He's a taller target! That's funny! I'm glad you're being nice to your dad.

Mint is Not good. Try Cat Mint (or catnip); although "cat" is there, we dogs like it too!

Best barks to all,
