The three little PIGS and the big bad WOLF

The Official story is :

Mother Pig sends her three three little pigs out into the world to "seek their fortune".

The first little pig builds a house of straw, but a wolf blows it down. The encounter between wolf and pig features ringing proverbial phrases:

One day the big bad wolf came and knocked on the first little pig's door and said, "Little pig, little pig, let me come in." And the little pig answered, "No, no, I won't let you come in, not by the hair on my chinny chin chin." "Well," said the wolf, "then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in." So he huffed and he puffed and he blew the house down and the first pig ran to his brother's.

The second pig builds a house of sticks, lets his brother in, the same conversation with the wolf, who huffs and puffs the house down and the pigs run to their brother's.

The third pig builds a house of bricks and lets his brothers in. The wolf cannot huff and puff hard enough to blow the house down. He attempts to trick the three little pigs out of their house, but the pigs outsmart him at every turn. Finally, the wolf threatens to come down the chimney, whereupon the three little pigs boil a pot of water into which the wolf plunges."

But.... this is how it played at my house:

The momma made us into 3 little pigs.... yea the dumb costumes... she put on her mask and we visited the vet...pet costume contest. Aha we got treats. And we will wear costumes tonight again... trick or treat.... Notice brown nose Wendy... kissing up to the wolf. TOTALLY out of character!






























These three little pigs only had one refrain:
"ARE WE DONE YET????? CAN WE GO HOME????"


oink, grunt... whatever

the THING is....


Sometimes I forget that not everybody sees me for who I am. My 2leggeds see me for who I am. They know me at my best and me at my better and at my good. [I have no bad!] My family sees beyond my fuzzy cuteness. They see the whole me. The being that loves deeply, that craves to be held, the being that likes to taste new things, that plays, and snuggles and blitzes. They also see me as the sensitive soul who does not like anyone to be in pain. They know my private self. The one afraid of some strangers. The insecure one who pulls away from grasping children who are sooo unpredictable.
I am always a little surprised when I realize that the strange 2legged staring me down sees me only as some random little animal of the pet category. Unlike JD who simply goes up to them and ignores their limitations and gets his belly rub... I stop and size them up. I don't like investing in 2leggeds who marginalize me like that. And I am different from Wendy. She absolutely does not trust any stranger no matter what. I do trust, but you have to have an open heart and a gentle soul. See me for who I am. I am not an accessory, a random anything, I have feelings, wants, [any chance you have looked at my Amazon wish list lately? The holidays are coming!] likes and dislikes [chewies... squirrels...], expectations [I expect unconditional love and all your attention!], opinions [mhhh what do you think this blog is about????], and I have toys! And, I will share my toys if you are worthy!

The thing is, open your eyes and really SEE me!

More than white fluff
validate me!

My WENDY

She is my best friend and my worst enemy -at times. But always I love her. No, I more than love her, I adore her. I follow her around, I refuse to go outside without her, and I will not eat if she does not eat. I ache when she is scared or hurt and I love to lick her face and snuggle her. She is MY Wendy! Her before time [before White Cottage and her rescue] was a very dark time. The Wendy does not talk about it much, but sometimes we can't make her forget it. But when she does forget it, and when she lives in the moment, then she is happiest and sweetest and the most fun. I really love her!
When Wendy is happy her eyes sparkle and she gets the biggest smile! Look! is she not beautiful?

Wendy's lil sis

When life hands you lemons... make LEMONADE

So, they take you shopping. You are not "thrilled" with the way things are done. This business of JD first in the cart, Wendy second.... and you LAST... is not acceptable. Try taking turns daddy. Age is NOT fair!

But what can a little puppy do?

Well, I don't know what you would do...but I do believe that one should take some control. And, if it scares the wits out of the daddy who suddenly cannot find you...mhh
shall we say.... LESSON LEARNED?

What I do not get is why he needed to take the picture with his cell phone? He wanted to prove to everyone I outsmarted him?

Ohhh Maybe, just maybe he thought I was cute. It pays to pose you know.....;)

My guest book


Thought I should mention my guestbook. A certain 4 legged said that Miss Gracie is very very cute. I should warn Miss Gracie that a certain 4 legged has a roving eye and Wendy and I don't let him get away with much!

In case JD reads this. No, I did not mention your name!

Hi Gracie! wish we did live closer! I bet we could have a great Blitz!

Fixing Effie









Needlesssss Yikes! Needles like my vet's office. Super Yikes! That is what it takes to fix Effie!
I got so nervous when I saw that I went on a full rampage! I attacked blue bed....
The pics are poor because you cannot focus on MS TASMANIAN DEVIL!
You see the bed. You attack the bed. You drag the bed to the middle of the family room and then you shake it, bite it. Attack. Attack. Kill!!!

Is she done??? Not yet? Ohhh, Growl, attack Blue bed some more! Glowy devil eyes!!!!

Shake it, take it by the fireplace and really, bite it. Turn it over, show it who is boss!!!!

{Is the needle gone? }

Show blue bed who is boss.....that is how a rampage is done....

Wait... this is how Effie got her ear chewed....
Nevermind...

All things back to NORMAL






We are ca-noodling at my house! Ha ha. Actually momma is making noodles. OODLES of noodles. Ok I will stop that... eventually. But it is fun! I am NOT eating the green ones! Ick Spinach! But the others, yummmm. After this Effie. I have not forgotten. We have thread.

Auntie Robin... See NOOOOOODLES!

I love the curtain of noodles. But I am not allowed to go under, near, or by... fun killers. It smells wonderful. I bet it would feel great against your tail. JD gave me a dirty look for just thinking that!

Boy, some 4leggeds really take their pasta seriously!

So, when is dinner????

Norfolk SPCA's Dog Walk

Today we went to the Norfolk SPCA's Dog Walk. It got rained out yesterday, but rescheduled for today. And it was a glorius fall day! But then, I always love walking in Ghent! And I liked Stockley Garden Park. Met so many people! Had my picture taken! And. Mhhh. I got held by this 2 legged lady who smelled very familiar, but I could not remember why. It was odd. I behaved. I did not snap, snip, or want off. But I could not remember her.... until...we left, got in the car and then momma told daddy how nice it was to spend time with Wynn's momma. DUH!!!! No wonder she was familiar! And you know what bigger DUH... Miss Darlene is the artist! You know, I did a post on her art because it speaks to me... she paints Bichons! sooo DUHHHHH to me!!!! I need to start remembering more. JD says I show all signs of being born a platinum blond. Ok. That is stupid. I was born zackly the same shade I am now. White.
So, we met lots of 4leggeds and lots of 2leggeds. Momma told daddy about these four puppies up for adoption at the Norfolk SPCA {Is this place like White Cottage??? Momma said that White Cottage is special and different from all other places, so I guess not.} Ok the thing with these puppies is that they are half Bichon and half pit bull. Honest. No kidding. The way momma reacted and the way daddy reacted, this must be a very strange thing. Dunno. To me a 4legged is a 4legged. No "category" or "breed" label. I think the half that is Bichon must be wonderful! No- momma. I am your puppy. Don't even think about it. JD and Wendy have ME!

100% full Bichon

Effie's surgery





My ephalant Effie has a sore holy ear. I kind chewed it open when momma was gone. Don't judge me. I was having a melt down. And it had a nasty tag... I .... removed. Like you have never chewed up anything in your whole life!
I love Effie, she is my second ephalant. My other one is an elephant- Ellie elephant, and not as cute. [don't tell her that] Momma looked at Effie today and decided we need to go to the fabric store to get matching thread. Effie is pink and momma is out of that pink color. By tomorrow Effie will be all better. So, I put her down under the comforter so she can rest until tomorrow. That is where I go when my tummy is icky, and it makes me feel better. Daddy says I need a little jack ass to play with, he thinks that ephalants are passe`. Momma just gave him a seriously dirty look.
Hm- ever feel like some people live in an alternate universe? I mean... what is wrong with ephalants?

I hope momma gets Effie a new squeaker too. I kind of killed her old one... I just got caught up in the frenzy ok... Yes... I am a little ashamed, but it is really momma's fault for leaving me.

sorry

EEEEEEK! I am surrounded by CANNIBALS

JD thinks the bird is a great idea. He thinks it would taste great....ON THE GRILL! OMG!. Cannibal. Wendy reminded me she loves chicken. Chickens are birds? Ick. Maybe this is not the right house for a bird. I cannot trust JD or Wendy! I want a bird so I can kiss it. I want a bird so I can name it Sadie and sing to it Sadie Sadie Married Lady....NOT to have it as a snack for those two barbarians.....

IT IS ABOUT time!!!!!!

US Military Open New State of the Art Veterinary Hospital to Serve Military Dogs

Silvieon2 to Silvieon4

Dear Silvie, I am willing to have the whole family vote on the bird issue, but can I point out one little thing? You have JD. You have Wendy. Both are more fun than a bird.Quillah does not have JD and Wendy. When you pout you really make my heart ache, and when you try to emotionally blackmail me it really upsets me.

Also, I suggest you grow some thumbs pronto, because you will need them to change the papers in the bird cage and vacuum up all the bird seed, feathers etc... Momma is allergic to birdies, so you will have to do it. Just another reality honey.

And I do love you, even if I do not get you a bird. Do you want a family vote or do you want to think about this a little more?

Where would you put the bird on days like yesterday? We were gone all day! A bird would not like going out of town! Think about it.

Momma

IF you really LOVE me

You will get me my own BIRD.

I will name it SADIE.

I will love it forever.

I will kiss it, just like Quillah!

Quillah's BIRD













So... I was walking by momma's puter and looked over to see the screen. QUILLAH! Pictures of Quillah in her new forever home. Girl friend looks GOOOOOOOOD! She looks happy. I love seeing my White Cottage Buddies when they get their new home.

What? Quillah has a bird! Her very own bird! Momma!!! Did you know Quillah has her very own bird? Mooooommmmmmaaaaa JD, Wennnnndy, Daddddy looooooK

I have to go to the pet shop to see birds ... or catch them in the back yard. FRUMPT.
I want my own bird!

Momma is trying to tell me that the bird was in that house before Quillah ever came. He was friends with Daisy and when she went over to the Rainbow Bridge, the bird was very sad.

Hm. Now Quillah has a bird. I have a dumb stuffed duck.
Momma, can we get a bird? Pleasssssseee.

Frumpt. I want my own bird!

The Itchies.

Well, momma is back, for sure. Momma will not put up with the itchies. If she sees one of us scratching we get picked up, turned over looked over and wiped, shmeared with stuff, pilled or sprayed and told not to scratch. As if. You know what happens when you are told NOT to scratch? You ITCH MORE!!!! Whatever allergies are, momma hates allergies. The Wendy had the start of a hot spot on her tush. The Wendy got the full day treatment... spray, wipe schmear and pill. It is now gone. Ditto for me. I had a "something" on my cheek. No more! JD got his face washed a couple of times and his eyes cleaned up. Momma says it is fall allergies. And, today momma said her allergies were bothering her! I did not see anyone turn her over, wipe, schmear pill or spray her! Wait, I saw her pill herself. But nobody turned her over! Does the spray on the head count as spray? She must have allergies in her hair!

We are going for a walk later. You know what that means? A full wipe down when we get back!..

The price of Bichon life! Wipe downs. Oh well.

Mars Petcare US Voluntary Limited Food Recall

(US recall only; Puerto Rico not affected)

Mars Petcare US Issues Voluntary Recall of Everson, PA Plant Dry Pet Food Product due to Potential Salmonella Contamination

Contact:
Debra Fair
Public Relations Manager — Central Marketing
MARS PETCARE US
(973) 691-3536

For Immediate Release

Mars Petcare US Announces Nationwide Voluntary Recall

Franklin, Tennessee (September 12, 2008)—Today, Mars Petcare US announced a voluntary recall of products manufactured at its Everson, Pennsylvania facility. The pet food is being voluntarily recalled because of potential contamination with Salmonella serotype Schwarzengrund. This voluntary recall only affects the United States.

Salmonella can cause serious infections in dogs and cats, and, if there is cross contamination caused by handling of the pet food, in people as well, especially children, the aged, and people with compromised immune systems. Healthy people potentially infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. On rare occasions, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Animals can be carriers with no visible symptoms and can potentially infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

The company stopped production at the Everson facility on July 29, 2008 when it was alerted of a possible link between dry pet food produced at the plant and two isolated cases of people infected with Salmonella Schwarzengrund.

Even though no direct link between product produced at Everson and human or pet illness has been made, Mars Petcare US is taking precautionary action to protect pets and their owners by announcing a voluntary recall of all products produced at the Everson facility beginning February 18, 2008 until July 29, 2008 when we stopped production.

The company is continuing to work collaboratively with the FDA to determine the nature and source of Salmonella Schwarzengrund at the Everson facility. Since it has not yet identified the source of the Salmonella Schwarzengrund at the Everson facility, Mars Petcare US does not plan to resume production out of a commitment to the safety of our pet owners and their pets, customers, and associates.

The top priority of Mars Petcare US has always been and continues to be the health and welfare of pets and their owners. Consumers can continue to have confidence in the quality and safety of the products produced at other Mars Petcare US facilities. Only those products which were produced at the Everson facility are impacted by the voluntary recall.

Many of the brands involved in the recall are national brands produced at multiple facilities. A chart for all products is below. For example, PEDIGREE® is manufactured in numerous facilities throughout the country, and Everson represents a very small portion of the manufacturing base - 2.7 percent of total PEDIGREE® production.

Mars Petcare US will work with retail customers to ensure that the recalled products are not on store shelves. These products should not be sold or fed to pets. In the event that consumers believe they have purchased products affected by this voluntary recall, they should return the product to the store where they purchased it for a full refund. Specific product details and other information can be found at http://www.petcare.mars.com/

In an effort to prevent the transmission of Salmonella from pets to family members and care givers, the FDA recommends that everyone follow appropriate pet food handling guidelines when feeding their pets. A list of safe pet food handling tips can be found at: www.fda.gov/consumer/updates/petfoodtips080307.html

Pet owners who have questions about the recall should call 1-877-568-4463 or visit http://www.petcare.mars.com/.

Media Statement

Mars Petcare US Comments on Voluntary Recall of Everson, PA Plant Dry Pet Food Product

September 12, 2008

Today Mars Petcare US announced a voluntary recall of all products produced at its Everson facility beginning February 18, 2008 until July 29, 2008. The pet food is being recalled because of potential contamination with Salmonella Schwarzengrund. This voluntary recall only affects 31 states in the United States.

“Even though no direct link between products produced at the Everson manufacturing plant and human or pet illness has been made, we are taking this precautionary action to protect pets and their owners. We are continuing to work collaboratively with the FDA to determine the nature and source of Salmonella Schwarzengrund at the Everson facility, and are committed to making sure our consumers and customers have the information they need regarding our voluntary recall,” said Catherine Woteki, Global Director of Scientific Affairs, Mars, Incorporated.

Mars Petcare US stopped production at the Everson facility on July 29, 2008 when the company was alerted of a possible link between dry pet food produced at the plant and two isolated cases of people infected with Salmonella Schwarzengrund.

In order to avoid any potential risk to pets and their owners, the company initiated an extensive internal investigation to determine the extent of the involvement of the Everson facility in cooperation with the FDA. Ultimately, none of the pet foods found in consumer homes have been determined to contain Salmonella, and there have been no reports of pet illnesses in those households. However, the strain of Salmonella Schwarzengrund involved in the illnesses has been detected in the company’s Everson facility.

Many of the brands involved in the recall are national brands produced at multiple facilities. For example, the company manufactures PEDIGREE® in numerous facilities throughout the country, and the Everson facility represents a very small portion of the manufacturing base – 2.7 percent of total PEDIGREE® production.

Consumers can continue to have confidence in the quality and safety of the products produced at Mars Petcare US’ other facilities. Only those products which were produced at the Everson facility are impacted.

Mars Petcare US will work with all of its customers to ensure that the recalled products are not on store shelves. These products should not be sold or fed to pets. In the event that consumers believe they have purchased products affected by this voluntary recall, they should return the product to the store where they purchased it for a full refund. Specific product details and other information can be found at http://www.petcare.mars.com/.

Catherine Woteki concluded, “Our top priority has always been and continues to be the health and welfare of pets and their owners. At Mars, we hold ourselves to the highest quality standards.”

Badges!? Oh, good! We need stinkin' badges.
