Messi takes over

Shhhhhh.... Ranger is napping right now and he left his yaptop ON so I'm taking over his blog.    Here goes.

Bonjour... I'm Messi, Aunty D's grand-dog and I'm visiting wiff Ranger while my peeps are away.   I was named after a famous soccer play (that my dad likes).   I'm french,  two years old and full of fun & gas.

Ranger is a pretty cool dude and has a great fenced in yard for me to play in.     I'm not used to this whole yard thing and I make one of Ranger's peeps (one of da sisters) come out wiff me while I run and play.   Ya see.... I have a little problem.   I'm peep dependent and have to have one in my sight at ALL times.   Ranger is much more independent dan I am.

I'm also a toy trasher and when I visit Ranger, I trash tons of his toys.   (I think his peeps hide his favorite toys so I can't find dem).   What can I say, I love, love, love chewing thru toys!   Hummmm.... maybe dat's why my peeps don't give me anymore new toys.
Just look at me!
I climbed into Ranger's bed while he was napping wiff just his back paws on his bed.
Dis is a really nice bed and soooooooooooo much better dan my crate.

Hummmmm.....
Y'all know Ranger better dan me.....

Do you think he will be mad when he wakes up?
 Snorts, 
         Messi

Aftermath of Matthew

Yesterday we woke up (in the wee early hours) to da weather alert radio screeching out dat we had a Tornado Warning.  Yikes.... da peeps did not like being woke up so early to dat.      It was a loud morning (about every 20 mins we got another and different alerts).   Luckily all da tornados dat the radio announced did not come into my hood.    It was quite da morning.  

Oh, did I remember to say dat Mom is not pleasant when she don't get enough sleep?   She made me wear my leash in da house all day (so she could easily catch me if we needed to go to our safe place in da house).     AND I didn't get to go outside to play or get my long walkies.    It was a run out and pee and den back in the house kinda day.  

Still windy out here.


We loss power last night at 8:30pm but it was back on this morning by 8:30am.   Thank you utility crews.


I dragged Mom and Aunty D outside so I could do a walk-about dis morning to inspect my hood.   Dis is a popular pee-mail post.   Can you tell?


I got introduced to tons of palm fronds.  

I was going to leave some peemail on dem ALL but it was too many.

I drank a ton of water when I got home.   Had to refuel.


Just another one of dos frond thingys.




OMD...... a big tree is down on my favorite walking trail around da lake!

Da only damage to our house is some siding da lost a battle wiff Matthew's winds.   They reported 75 mph winds at da airport last night.   

We were very lucky but Aunty D says next time if it is Cat 2 or more.... we'll evacuate.

Prayers for all those with major flood damage.

Messi's 1st pool adventure

Baby it's HOT outside and while Messi was visiting, I told Mom to break out my pool so we could cool off.

M:  YIKES....... my paws are wet!

Messi has never played in a pool before dis.  (I have soooooo...... much to teach dis kid).

At first he just stood dar.   Den I told him dat he needs to fetch da floaty.
M: You mean dis yellow fishy floaty?

R:  Yes..... grab da yellow fishy!

R: Got it !


I think dat he is a bit confused cuz da fishy keeps floating away when he trys to snatch it.  

I guess I'll have to show him.  
He must be a visual learner so here I go.

Yo Messi, Watch me! 
I jumped into da pool and grabbed da yellow fishy.  (No.... it's not Bubbles from da movie Finding Nemo!)

Messi figured it out den, and jumped in and out of the pool, snatching up floaty's and den he piled dem up on da porch next to his Mom.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5












  High Paws!  Now he's got it!



Messi is not yet 2 and has lots to learn.   Good thing he has me around to teach him how to have fun.

Fabulous Friday - a Chewy Surprise

OMD.... you will never believe dis, but I got a surprise summer pressies from Sydney @ Chewy (my favorite place to shop).

Here's what happened:  As you know, we moved about a mile from our old house, and Aunty D was riding her bike over by our old house and saw a package on the porch.  Da new owners had not moved in yet... so she rode by slowy and saw that it had big blue writing on it dat said CHEWY!   She though, what are da odds dat the new owners ordered something from Chewy so she got off her bike and went up to the porch and read da label.

Yep.... it was for ME!
So she snatched it off da porch and when she got home, she asked me if I'd been shopping online again wiffout Mom's knowledge.

Nope... not me.

We opened da package (and of course I helped) and to our surprise, it was a pressies from Sydney at Chewy.

It was a Summer Fun Bag!

I love CHEWY pressies!
OMD..... I got a chewy bag, chewy flip-flops, a chewy drinking cup, a chewy beach/pool blanket, and cool chewy shades.


Thank you Sydney.  You and CHEWY are da best!

Wags,

Yard Patrol

I've been patrolling at my new house.   It's a really Big job and  I may have to call in reinforcements.

Mr. Swan swims by about 5 times a day.   His girl is  nesting on da little island on da lake and he is pacing on our canal.   We don't talk.... he just gives me a dirty look and I just watch and den ignore him.  

Mom says that we should give him a name.  

What do you think we should call him?  
Mr. (No-name yet) Swan

Now.... Mr. Heron is another story.  

He come by and creeps along the canal bank and goes fishin'.   
 

I'm havin' none of him creepin in my back yard so I bark him right off his stilts and send him flyin'.

I think he is learning.  Lately, he only creeps on the other side of the bank to go fishin'.

Oh.... maybe we should name Mr. Heron too.

Dar are also duck that swim by but I just let them go, they are not being best.   BUT..... bunnies are another story.   I see dem running around on da other side of da canal and I scream at dem.    Stay tuned for more bunnies stories.

Maybe I should put on my Top Cop uniform and flash my badge so dey all know dat the Blogville Law Enforcement has come to town.

Gotta get back to my patrolling now.  

Wags, 
            Ranger
