So long, kid

Hey, y'all:

Well, I'm happy tuh report that the kid found herself a real nice ferever home - in just nine days!

This lady an' her daughter came all the way up from Bloomington (a good hour drive) tuh meet the kid, and let me tell you they hit it off.

Matter o' fact, the lady sent my mom this pitcher the very next day.

(We like this a lot 'cause she's got the stuffie we bought 'er.)

So all in all, it was real good fer Cutie, me AN' MOM 'cause she livened up the joint fer a bit an' put a spring in our steps. An' we're real happy fer her new mom. Her dog died last year an' she's been takin' her time findin' the right one. We think she DID I tell ya what.

Now I gotta was kinda sad lettin' the kid go, but she likes tuh run an' play an' carry on an' I just don't do that no more.

Plus, her new mom has some grandkids who just LOVE dogs, so they'll keep her ennertained fer sure.

Okay, kid.....I done taught ya ever'thing I know. Live long an' prosper, honey!

Yep. Mmhmm.

Adventures in Babysittin'

Hey, y'all:

'Member how last summer I said I was lookin' fer a job? Well, I found one.

Now as y'all prolly know, I'm not real fond o' kids.....always up in yer face, an' screamin' an' actin' a fool. an' mom are fosterin' a real nice five-month-old kid that come intuh the Kentuckiana Pug Rescue. She dint have a name (ain't that sad?) so we're callin 'er "Cutie".

Yeah, she ain't like most kids. She's real quite and kinda polite! I been showin' the kid around the house an' ennertainin' 'er with stories 'bout my tour o' dooty in Da Nang. As you can see, I got 'er on the edge of 'er seat.

Mom took 'er to the Petco yesterday an' got 'er this jacket - the kid gits cold perty easy!

Anyhoo, she's been doin' real good with goin' tuh the terlit outside. (I showed 'er all the good spots.)

Hail, she's such a nice kid she even stopped tuh bow 'er head an' pray in our memory garden.

"Come on, kid. Don't be shy. Say hi tuh all my blog pals!"

"Yeah, yeah, I know. I smell funny. You will, TOO when you git old!"

So after I done some potty trainin' we headed back inside tuh warm up. Check out this little face. I bet I was this cute when I was a kid.

Yep, so that's all the news that's fit tuh print. I'll keep ya updated on the kid. This babysittin' gig ain't too bad! I think ever'thing's gonna work out fine, an'.......


Yep. Mmhmm.
