First, many thanks to Comedy Plus for hosting Happy Tuesday!
Hey there, Xena here. I want to tell you about visitors we had over the weekend.
Mommy is from Pee Aye, up north where it’s cold now. Rhonda, her best friend from there, brought her fiance with her to visit. It was only fair because Mommy took Daddy up to visit Rhonda to get her approval before her and Daddy got married. Obviously, Rhonda approved. Or Rhonda didn’t approve and Mommy did it anyway, which is kinda like something my Mommy would do…Mommy?
The Mommy: Yes, Xena, Rhonda gave her approval.
Xena: Yay!!! *hop, hop* I’m so happy and excited, cause I got my Daddy!! Daddy, Daddy, hold me!
pause while Daddy lifts Xena into his arms
Now, where was I? Oh yes. So they went without me to another Octoberfest event, this time on Signal Mountain, Tennessee. They said there wasn’t much to do there but look at all the vendors’ stuff and eat and drink beer and dance polka and talk to strangers and drink beer. The Wurstbrats band that Daddy leads was there playing the whole time, too. I wish I coulda gone….
But, mostly, everyone stayed home. I really, really liked Rhonda. Mommy said this is unusual, cause I normally ask the men to hold me, not the women. But Miss Rhonda is special! Here’s some pictures of us all out on the porch.
This is Chia with my Daddy.
I think this picture is funny cause Chia looks so big there. I guess it’s cause she was closer to the camera than Daddy, right?
Here I am with Rhonda. She held me for a long, long time. She kept saying how sweet I am, and what a different personality I have from Angel Lexi.
I even let her baby-hold me. This picture was taken right before I fell asleep.
Next is Rhonda’s husband-to-be. They’re getting married next month!
His name is Steve, and he’s always cracking jokes. This is his senior pup Toby, asleep on his lap. Steve is Toby’s “person.” I guess I didn’t ask Steve to hold me cause I knew Toby needed him instead. Toby was a nice pup and made up to all of us. Chia even got the “dog who doesn’t play” to play with her a little bit. I have to admit, she’s really good at that. It must be her super power.
Before I go, I want to show you a couple more pictures from Rocktoberfest, the huge celebration that happens every year on Lookout Mountain. Can you guess who the puppy is that my Daddy’s holding in the first picture. I’d offer you a prize for guessing right, but Lucy would yell at me and say “No!” and I know that none of us want to hear that again.
Did you guess? It’s me! I’m five now, and look all grown up in the second picture, taken this year. By the way, that’s the red and black harness I slipped out of so it’s now gone in the garbage, and I have a brand new, slip-proof, turquois-blue harness that I told you about in a previous post.
I guess that’s all that’s awww-worthy today. See y’all again soon! XOXOX Your friend, Xena Schnauzer Warrior Princess
