Hershey and Kaci are now angels

We are sorry to advise any of our "blogging buddies" that Hershey and Kaci are now angels in heaven.  Hershey passed away in March of 2022 and Kaci passed away in July of 2021.  However, we have a new addition to the family.  Her name is NestlĂ©.  Here is a picture of her:


We hope you enjoy the picture.  She was about eight weeks old when we got her.

Jessy is here visiting us

Hello everyone -

We are so sorry that we have been behind in blogging.  But the reason is in the title of this post. Jessy is visiting us and has been here a little over a week.  Her pawrents are in California right now.  In the meantime, Jessy and I (Hershey) are having so much fun together.  We love playing with the squeaky toys and the rope toys too.

The only thing we don't do together is walk with Mama.  She cannot walk the two of us because of the size difference.  But I do voice my displeasure when Mama takes Jessy and not me.  She does make up for it though.

We hope everyone is having a good weekend.  It is raining here.

Love -

Another trip to Fort Griswold and Mama did a good deed for a neighbor

Hi, everyone -

We hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend.  It was a good weekend all around for Mama and I.  Fort Griswold is now officially open and Mama climbed the monument on Memorial Day.  You know the building that looks like this:

Here is another view of the park:

The Friday before Memorial Day Mama was walking in the neighborhood.  She was almost home and a nice lady was a little upset.  She had found a dog wandering in the street and asked us if Mama knew who he belonged to.  Mama had a pretty good idea who the pup belonged to.  She was 100% certain she had seen him before on our street.  The lady and Mama went to the house and knocked on the door but no one answered.

The lady was getting a little distraught because her husband and dog are being treated for cancer at the same time.  She did not want to upset her dog or her husband because of the health issues.  Mama offered to bring the dog to her house and call the Animal Control Officer.  The lady walked with Mama to our house and I (Hershey ) met the nice lady.  I made her feel at home while Mama was helping the pup.  This dog had no ID tags or collar - only a flea collar which made Mama angry.

Mama proceeded to call the Animal Control Officer's office.  The very nice lady who answered the phone could not come out and get the dog because she was not a "field" employee.  She was the dispatcher but she offered to call the police department for Mama.  Mama did not want the dog alone on the street either so she told the lady that would be fine.  Mama was holding the dog and keeping me happy - no small task.  The dog was nervous so Mama put him on the run and let him outside to do his business.  Within 15 minutes the police officer came to the house.  Mama met him and she put the dog in the back seat of the patrol car.  The officer took him to Animal Control.  Later that night the dispatcher got a call from the owner of the dog asking if anyone had seen him.  The dog was reunited with his owner that night.

The next day the officer knocked on our door and told Mama that the dog was safely home.  The officer also has a soft spot for dogs and told Mama that he (the dog) really liked her.  The officer also rescued a dog for him and his family.  He took Mama's name and other info in case she got a reward.  All in all it was a great weekend.  Mama found out that the dog's name is Bernard.  He is part chihuahua and part "doxie" a Lorenza type dog.

Sorry our post is so long!

Springtime is finally here

Hi, everyone -

Spring has finally come to our part of New England.  It has been really chilly but now the daffodils are in full bloom.  We also have a cactus that is indoors that has a lot of blooms on it.  Mama counted about 15 of them yesterday.  The color is a lighter shade of red but the blooms are really long.

This is the main reason why we have been behind in blogging.  Jessy was here for over two weeks this time.  Her pawrents went to Germany because Mama's nephew is doing an internship through college there.  Then they finished their trip in Florida driving up in the car that belongs to my "uncle's" parents.  This is Mama's brother-in-law. Jessy went back home on Sunday.

For the most part, Jessy was really good.  She and I (Hershey) had a ton of fun playing tug of war - in fact one of the rope toys is now four smaller rope toys using the strings of the original toy.  Jessy figured out a way to completely undo the knots at both ends of the toy.  She is pretty creative when it comes to destroying toys.  She loved sleeping with Mama and would go in the cage when she was exhausted.  Mama did some testing to see how long it would take her to find hidden treats.  Depending on the trick it took Jessy a little over a minute to get the treats and eat them.  Mama also did a trick using a mirror on us - just to see what we would do.  The first time we ran away from it but the more she tried the trick the more we got used to seeing the mirror.

The not so good things that Jessy did was she took off (the first time was an hour) with Mama on her heels the whole time.  Just when Mama thought to get Hershey to bring Jessy home she found Jessy on the back steps waiting to go into the house.  Mama was pretty angry because I did help a little bit letting Jessy go out on her jaunt.  The second time took fifteen minutes.  Mama was able to get her home on the leash with the help of a neighbor that time.

We are sorry this post is so lengthy.  But Jessy had a way of occupying a lot of Mama's time plus she was taking care of me too.  And of course other things got in the way - such as life and Easter Sunday.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

P.S.  Papa gave Mama her Easter card today.  He left it in the car and totally forgot.  We hope everyone had a Happy and Blessed Easter!

Jessy is visiting us again

Hi, everyone -

Jessy is visiting us this weekend.  My "aunt" had to go to a funeral.  We are having so much fun driving Mama insane.  Today Papa has the day off and we are driving him insane too.  

Papa is making another wooden boat.  He is now cutting the pieces to put the boat together.  He is planning to use this boat for the "Meet at the Beach" weekend in June.  

We don't have any new pictures because the digital camera needs batteries.  We hope you all are having a great weekend!

I am Dogster Dog of the Week!

Hi, everyone -

For our next post Mama was going to post some pictures of Kaci and I together.  Instead she woke up this morning to see this:

Mama logged onto Dogster and saw that I (Hershey) is the Dogster Dog of the Week.  She was really surprised and happy.  It is ironic that dogster.com is closing the community in favor of a "digital magazine format" soon.  We will really miss Dogster but Mama is planning to do more blogging and we are on another forum too.

Here are the pictures that I received from  some pup pals:

And here is the picture that Mama saw on the community page which will be there all week:

I have received so many congratulatory wishes, gifts, zealies and lovely comments today.  I guess I am the boss of this household, Mama.

Love -
