Please send the water quality inspector .........

I have slipped away from my Mom to post tonight. She is in a bad mood and I am trying to stay out of her way. She had a garage sale today and she has been in bad mood ever since. Even though I was a really good boy and didn't bark at too many people (mostly because she let me sit in her lap) she said she was NEVER having another garage sale EVER again. It has something to do with too many people wanting to pay her a quarter for things when she only asked for a dollar and the things were like new and cost $20 or $30. She says that you can't buy ANYTHING ANYWHERE for a quarter. I am not sure what that means, but it has put her in a bad mood.

Then tonight a boy and a lady came to my house (I only barked softly at them as they left.) and asked my Mom if any people came to her garage sale and gave her any twenty dollar bills. It turns out that three people came together to this lady's house and each bought something for fifty cents or a dollar and each gave her a COUNTERFEIT twenty dollar bill. She had three of them and had lost close to sixty dollars. She was a nice lady and had looked in the paper for other people who had also had a garage sale today and had been going around to their houses to see if they had also taken any counterfeit twenty dollar bills. She wanted them to call the police so that the police could maybe catch these bad people. My Mom says that she does not think any bad people came to my house, just cheap people.

On another note, I just have to show you what was in my water the other day. My Mom is very nice (except for right now) and I have a water bowl inside and outside, so that when I am outside not barking at people (because I hardly ever do) I can get a drink of water. Well, the other day this is what my water looked like.

Aside from the dead bugs that you floating in the water, can you see that green stuff? That is pollen. As you know, I live in Augusta, Georgia. It is beautiful here in the spring ........... except for the pollen. This green pollen you see in my water comes from the pine trees. It gets all over everything outside and a lot of things inside. It is awful and it is really bad this year because it has not rained. My Mom and Dad say that they can't open the windows (so people can hear me bark from inside) because the pollen gets all over everthing in the house. In fact, Mom wiped my feet three times today when I came inside. So, the other day when Mom saw me drinking my water, she changed it and made it clean again. The only thing is she would have to make my water clean every hour and she won't do that today because she is in a bad mood.

I will take some pictures of the pollen on other things tomorrow (like my black car) so that you can all see what I am talking about. It is terrible ........... because I hate to have my feet wiped.

OMG! Linda was in a bad mood today, too! She didn't have cheap people coming to her garage sale because we don't have a garage or anything for sale. She was just in a bad mood because it was hot and she stood in the sun painting the house all afternoon. Dontcha' just hate it when the humans are grumpy?

We got all that pollen stuff, too and no rain in ages- we are in a drought, they say. Linda gets wheezy and sneezy so our windows are closed, too. Seems we have a lot in common today, Copper.
Big Wags,

Hiya Copper,
That water looks really gross...I don't have a water bowl. I drink from a bottle. Yeah, I know like a baby...but Mom says the water in the bowl gets dirty too fast and it's not even left outdoors!
Those cheap hoomans are too much...what can quarters buy? We can't even get a greenie or a bone treat with that!
I hope your Mom's in a better mood.

Well, Judi was happy today because she made a really pretty mermaid. She's so weird. We don't have pollen, we have snow! Yep - it's STILL snowing. Mom wants to train me to wipe my feet before I come in the house - yeah, right, ha ha ha. Like that's ever gonna happen. Maybe for a quarter, tee hee.

My Human says she knows that stupid pollen from when she lived in Athens, GA. We don't have pollen like that in the state of Misery!

We have two water bowls outside and Mom is constantly putting clean water in them. We don't mind the water with pollen but she is funny that way.

Hope your mom is in a better mood now.

Ha ha! Your mom is like Zach's mom. Zach's mom ran to get the camera to take a picture of Zach hanging by his seat belt, and YOUR mom went to get the camera to take a picture of the bugs and pollen floating in your water bowl instead of changing your water. Moms are so weird!!!

i am sophie, the doxeranian, i hate to have my feet wiped too! i growl at my sister and dad the most when they do it and growl a little less when my mom does it. i bark at most of the people that come to our yard sales and mom agrees, they are just not worth it. she now gives it to charity.

Hey Copper,

I just wanted to pop in and tell you where my tumors were. The big one was the size of half an orange and right behind my left elbow on my chest. The small one was right under my chest toward the right side. It was only the size of a grape.

Sorry you're Mom has been cranky. My Mom has been a bit cranky for a while ever since all the rennovations were started a month ago. She says the house stinks and is filthy and she can't get the carpets cleaned until it is all over this weekend.

Take care..
