What Is All This Nonsense About Love?

Guest blogger, Sir Bear.

My dear Queen Emma,

Why on earth do you insist on swooning over the Border Collies? What do they have that I don't have? I am black and white too. I am big and strong. I am completely devoted to you. You know I would lay down my life to protect you. If I increased my Rimadyl meds, maybe I could even run with you through the tall grass. I still have one good eye and all my teeth.

And besides that -

I'm a real looker!

Oh dear!!!

It Must Have Been Love, But it's Over Now

Lay a wet nose on my pillow
Leave the dog toys on the ground

I wake up lonely, is there a silence
in the backyard and all around

Touch me now, I close my eyes
And dream away...

It must have been love, but it's over now
It must have been good, but I lost it somehow

It must have been love, but it's over now
From the moment we sniffed, till the time had run out

Make believing we're together
That I'm sheltered by your heart

But in and outside I turn to water
Like a teardrop in your paw

And it's a hard summer's day
I dream away...

It must have been love, but it's over now
It was all that I wanted, now I'm living without

It must have been love, but it's over now
From the moment we sniffed till the time had run out

It must have been love....

This post is dedicated to my dreamboat, Gryff.

What is a Kobi?

This is a Kobi.

It is not a rabbit.

It is not a squirrel.

Although it jumps around like a rabbit,
and is about the same size,
it is not a rabbit.
(or so the Duchess says)

Kobi belongs to niece Kayla. He came to visit for a few hours
and I was not allowed to eat, chomp, or play with him.

Rabbits are more fun anyway.

What Kind of a Woman Does This???

What kind of woman would hang pictures of dogs on her wall at work . . .

And put her human family on the bulletin board???
(with a generous sprinkling of four legged friends)

Yep! That's my Duchess!

Dreaming in Black and White

The best day of my life was the day I found my forever home. But yesterday was the most exciting day of my life!

We got up early and took a long (3 hour) road trip up into Washington to see a new friend, Lady Vicki, at Border Collie Rescue. Unbeknownst to me, the Duke and Duchess were hoping to adopt a new Border Collie to be my friend. Her name is Bess and we drove all that way to meet her.

When we got there and I figured out what they were up to I quickly put Bess in her place and let everyone know that I AM THE ALPHA QUEEN. The Duke and Duchess were disappointed. Bess is really beautiful and sweet. She is very well trained and needs a forever home.

The Duke getting to know Bess.

Then Lady Vicki let her other dogs out to play with us, hoping that would put us more at ease. It was great! We had a real dog party. Black and white fur everywhere.

And Lady Vicki had some really good cookies for our party.
Yummy! But we had to take turns.

We got to run in the pasture - those kids can run like the wind!!!

Then Lady Carolynn and Sir John came over from BCxFour (one of the best blogs ever) with 3 of their BC's. Beth, Bonnie, and puppy Brynn. Beth had to stay on leash because SHE is the Alpha Queen of her castle and Lady Carolynn knew there would be some "issues" between us. You know how Queens are. It was a very wise move.

Beth wanted to teach me a thing or two about Royalty. . .

But Brynn was all puppy. Isn't she adorable?

We played and played. The cameras never stopped clicking!

I totally fell in love with Lady Vicki's BC, Griff. He was a dreamboat.

When the Duke and Duchess finally made their decision to leave Bess behind, we got ready to go.

"Do we have to go? I am having such a good time here."

Then Lady Carolynn told the Duchess they were going over to Fido's Farm to work the sheep and would we all like to tag along? She even offered to test me on the sheep and see if I had the instinct. The Duchess was ecstatic!!! She had been looking for someplace in our area to do just that and had not been successful.

So we followed them to Fido's Farm to see how this whole sheep herding thing really works.

When we got there it was awesome. Lady Carolynn and the Duchess took me into a ring with 3 sheep. They left my leash on for awhile and then took it off so I would stop tripping on it. The Duchess chickened out and got on the other side of the fence with Bear and the Duke.
When I started really doing my thing the Duke and Duchess were stunned. If they had seen the Red Sea parting they couldn't have been more amazed. Now, I think that is ridiculous! I may not know who my parents were, but I certainly know what my heritage is! It is coursing through my veins as sure as you are reading this! Humans can be so dense.

When we got home the Duke and Duchess had an entirely new respect for the Queen of Bossie's. I Rock!
It was a long drive and a long day. And there are literally hundreds of pictures to go through. But it was so very memorable. This morning the Duchess said her dreams have changed. Now they are all in Black and White. I wonder what she means by that???

Not More Water!!!

The Duke and Duchess decided to try the wading pool again this year. Last year they bought me one and ended up giving it to Tank and Ice because I would have nothing to do with it. Now what on earth makes them think this year will be any different? It is water, is it not?

Oh, well, if you are going to fill it up with cookies I might have to reconsider!

OK, maybe just one step in so I can reach that treat. . .

Oh look! There is another one over here!

Hmmm. I think I like wet cookies!
And by the way - I have lost my blogging privileges. The Duchess told me that she must be with me from now on when I am blogging. She said between the rolling in stinky stuff and the altercation with Ice, I am ruining my royal reputation along with hers! Who knew?

Anyway, I guess I was supposed to tell you about the real circumstances with Ice and the little tiff we had because the photograph made me look like public enemy #1 (according to the Duchess). Please trust me when I say there was a long story behind that picture and I really am a "sweet" Queen! (The Duchess feels better now)

A Royal Apology

The Duchess and I had a talk today. She told me that proper Queens do not roll in stinky things. I did not know that was a prerequisite for royalty. Oh dear me! Well, I am here now to apologize for my rather unbecoming antics over the weekend. Sometimes I forget that I am indeed a Queen, and not just a beautiful Bossie!

Now that we have that out of the way -

Remember my "friend" Ice?

Well, she tried to take a chunk out of my royal hide a few days back, so we are not really friends anymore. I will say that the Duchess ended up pulling clumps of Husky fur out of my teeth! Oh, I suppose that's not Queenly behavior either? Ah well, a strong Queen is better than a weak one in my opinion. Sometimes even a Queen must fight for her kingdom! Well, no, Ice was not actually in my kingdom at the time of the altercation, and the humans don't really know what happened, or who started it, but . . . . .

Hummmmm . . . . .
I think I'm being framed again!
