Come to the Garden Party!.....
You'll find the almost rich, almost famous and absolutely
gorgeous people there....We're dishing it out, telling you
all the latest gossip and the best news about the prominent
people of #news_garden...We're only the best and the brightest
Hello again all you gossip buffs......
This weeks column is devoted to not only our esteemed members,
but to the non-human esteemed members of our lovely Garden Party....
Cableguy sent me these adorable
pictures of his "Angel"...Angel is a rottweiler X husky...Cableguy
he calls her a rotten husky...Ahaha cute...Angel loves spending
her days chasing frisbees and taking long, lovely walks with Cableguy
and his son...Isn't she a cutie? (Click on each thumbnail to view
a larger picture).
Next we have the PlagueRat
family...There's momma Flicka (which is Swedish for "little
girl") who is a
Pojke/Porky and Beta
gorgeous Aussie Sheep dog...Flicka gave birth to several puppies
last Commie Day, May 1st ...They were named by position of birth
from Alpha to Epsilon ...Unfortunately, only Alpha and Beta survived
...Today, Alpha has become Porky Pojke because he's a glutton for
food...Beta wasn't going to be staying with the Rat family, but
by a twist of fate, none of the farmers could use another dog and
lovely Ms Beta is now a permanent member of the Rat household...Porky
has light red hair and Ms Beta is resplendent in her near black
To be fair I had to include our feline members also....
Patti shares her home with
Smokey!....He's a 10 yr old grey hair domestic short hair....Smokey
is diabetic (I have a real affinity with Smokey because of it) and
Patti has to give him daily shots of insulin...Poor Smokey, know
what he's going through ...Smokey mainly likes to sleep and cuddle
with Patti ....Smokey greets Patti at the door most nights when
she gets home, and their traditional greeting is: She picks him
up and when they hug, he puts his paw around her neck and nestles
his head into her neck & shoulder. Think there are several single
men on IRC who would envy this fat cat .....<wink>
ZZ^ shares her home with Guy....And
what a cutie guy, Guy is...Guy is an adorable 6 month old Boston
terrier ....Guy and zz^ spend their time out in the fields walking
together...Guy has recently been enrolled in a training school locally...We
wish him well and hope he gets all "A's"...
A gorgeous Golden Retriever, by the name of Sam aka Samskus waltzed
into SuzzieQ's life about a
year ago....She's not real sure of where he's been, but with
SuzzieQ he's got a great home...Suzzie tells me that when Sam first
came to live with her, he slept in the bathtub...He also enjoys
catching popcorn when its tossed to him...Suzzie says she thinks
Sam is a senior citizen, about 11 years old....Sam's one lucky dog
to have found Suzzie....
Dixiegal has a whole zoo
at her house .....What a bunch of cuties! ....Dixie's got Sissy
and King ....Two of the most adorable Poms I've seen in a long time
....They're 6 years old ....Joining them are Buddah and Missy, two
other canine cuties ....plus Tiny, mother of them all. Then there's
Rusty the kittie cat who just
Sissy & King
Buddha & Missy
Fred & Wilma
Pepples & Fred
turned 5 ...And no one can forget Wilma the ferret who's run off
to "France" for an extended vacation ....Poor Fred was
so lonely he's taken up with the adorable Peebles ...Iggy's was
the odd man out, that's Dixie's iguna ....sadly Iggy died recently.
Dixie, you've got the best zoo in town!....
No column would be complete without my household ...As many of
you know, I share my home with 5 dogs ....Four of whom are mine
and one is attached to my mother's broken hip (that's 13 yr old
Lady, a mini doxie) ...Mine are named Tag, Tia, Trip and Taylor
...Tag and Tia are mini doxies also ...Trip is a show English Cocker
(which just means he's a BIG BOY 40+ lbs) and Taylor is our newest
member ...Tag is a male and Tia is his right hand maiden ...My mother
calls them "the twins" ...They're 11 and 9 respectively
...Trip just turned 3 in September and has recently been diagnosed
with epilepsy ...Taylor was a "find" ....I was going into
my local Petsmart for food and Taylor was with her brother litter
mate in a cage ready for adoption ...Taylor is an Aussie Shepard
X Cocker ...She is now almost 7 mos old (her birthday is 4/11) ...Most
of her looks like a blue merle Aussie, BUT she has cocker eye brows
in a pale tan ...She is bright and cute and funny ....When I brought
her home, my mom's first reaction was "ARE YOU CRAZY?"
(don't answer that!)...Now mom wonders how we ever did without Taylor
That's this weeks column folks, its a wrap...Send me your latest
news!....Vacations, weddings, engagements, divorces, breakups and
breakdowns! ....I'll never say a word to anyone else (fingers crossed)
promise! ....Until next time ....
