Scampi is fitting right in. He is a pretty good dog. Has barked a few times but mostly it is a whine. He has decided that the rocker that sits next to the computer is his. Now this has upset Susie because she thought it was hers! The cats are starting to realize that they are as big as he is so there is nothing to fear. Buddy will pop anybody so that takes care of that. Scampi is afraid to go by him sometimes. Buddy stalks him. Buddy will get in between Scampi and us and just watch him like he is saying " I dare you." Sebastian ignores him completely and Susie hisses and hoits him. Big Daddy walks up to him and rubs on him and all of the younger ones puff up and hiss. Little bit pretnds like he is not there and Blackie runs and hides. We got him a few toys. He plays hard when he plays. Tennis balls are a nono. He rips the cover off of them! His favorite is a sock tied in a knot.
Yesterday morning I did a really dumb thing. Belle was out and I was looking for her, I spotted her in the next field over and I turned and headed at a run for the barn to get a feed bucket. Next thing I know I am flat on my back, out of breath wondering if I was going to live. I had left a wire up on the electric fence and I ran right into. I did not remember that I had only unhooked 1 wire. The top wire is at my throat level. Today I have bruices across my throat that looks like somebody tried to kill me. My shoulders are bruiced also but I am not sure why. Maybe from the way I hit the ground. The bruices are on the top of my shoulders. My back is sore today also. I am walking like an old woman today.
Last night Pat and I went to the store and I put a patio set in the layaway. I am looking forward to getting it and setting it up. I have been wanting one for a long time.
The sun is shining today and the wind is blowing. Feels like March might be coming in like a lion! So I am gonna get outside and see if I can do something in the yard to clean up the winter mess.
