Hello there good furry and fur-less readers!
Happy September! Can you imagine ... more than half the year has passed. And our bad, we did the least post in August. Much busy with many injuries (Joe, Trixie, Anna) and V-E-T visits ... (our V-E-T's building a new mansion at our expense!). Everyone's recovering nicely - thank you for the well wishes. Anna has scabs, Joe's still taking it easy - no rough and tumble games of fetch and Trixie in the mean time is in charge of guarding the house at night. :)
We've been practicing our nocturnal howlings. . The Chief wonders if its because its the month long Chinese 'hungry ghost festival' - not that she's superstitious but apparently some of our more scared neighbours (who've been burning hell notes) are not very appreciative of our howls. Somefin about death and ghosts...Arwowowoooo! in our neck of the woods, the gates of hell is left open for a month as oppose to a mere ONE night on Halloween
Anywoos, to keep the peace, the Chief advised to keep our howling to as briefly as possible - or at least howl quietly - if we absolutely must let out a howl or two. :p How's that possible? Them ambulance that wails past the area is like fuel to fire. Can't help it ... simply got to howl along sirens. Wooowoowoo! It's like letting out a good burp after a very satisfying meal - how can one do that briefly or quietly?! We knows, some cultures consider burping quite rude but in others a good burp is but compliments to the chef! We Dog Woods Pack (and other dogs around in the area) are merely paying howling service for great whines ...
As for the great digs around Dog Woods - the Chief & gang are in the process of putting dirt in to patch up them holes. She says, Dog Woods landscape is interesting enough and there's no need for us to add additional bits of' holey surprises' in the area. Harumph! there goes all our hard work ... but on the bright side, least there'll be more dirt to roll in ... Aroooo!
