Howdy pups! And a tribute fur Freckles...

Yep, it's me, Finley.... I's  still here, itchin' and a'scratchin'! I finally got my Momma to get off her duff and write me an entry. So much has happened in the months and months since I last got to bark. I guess most of ya follow Kinley and da LoneStarCats so ya knows dat my dad had brain surgery and wuz in da hospital. Mom's been bein' his showfur fur months now and she is beyond tired of dat, BOL, BOL...'specially since he thinks she's a taxi or sumthin' and always supposed to be ready to drop evfurrythang and run to pick him up. Well, he gets his cat-a-racks removed next week and will be drivin' himself... not soon enuf fur my Momma. I didn't evfun know da cats had racks or dat dey sumhow wuz messin' up his eyesight but I'm glad dey's gettin' removed... a happy Momma makes a happy Finley and Brinley and gives her more time to devotes to us.  Here's sum fotos of us dat Momma took 'round Chrismus... she are so lazy she hazn't uploaded any of her more recent ones...

Me, Finley

Bratty Brinley


Yeah, I calls her Bratty Brinley cuz fur sum reesun, she thinks if I growls my Momma, she needs protectin' and she's da one to do it. I's just old and grouchy and I's got da rights to growl... sheesh, teachin' dese young'uns who's da boss is a full time job. At least Brinley has finally learned to skruff once she poops... I thought neither one of 'em would evfur learn dat!! Skruffin' is a very important skill dat seems to be lost on da younger generashun... well, at least it wuz  till Brinley finally started payin' attenshun and figgered it out. 


And now fur sum very sad news.... Mr. Jack Freckles, our buddy from our days on Dogster, has crossed ovfur da Rainbow Bridge. We sure are gonna miss him and are sendin' big hugs to his Growlmy and all his furmily...


This one's fur you, Freckles...


Bark ya later, gators....

Next I posed fur a few pics in my new birthday outfit... Miss Kim made da jacket and Momma made da jumpsuit underneath... ya can't see da back of da jacket, but it has birthday fabric fur da placket. 




Next I got busy ripping into my presents. I luvs toys and I luvs unwrappin' em... guess ya have seen da videos ovfur on Kinley's page by now... I's an expert present opener! I got a whale, an Underdog dat talks, a lobster dat burbles, a birdy, and a blue sock monkey. Plus, my Momma made me anudder jumpsuit and Miss Kim made me 3 new jackets! So I'll be stylin' fur sure!






I had a fun day of playin' wiff my new toys and just hangin' out. Da bestest surprise wuz whut my Momma fixed me fur dinner ( and yeah, I shared wiff da young 'uns and da kitties)... she made me a New York Strip steak, topped it wiff a lil gravy and cheddar cheese... Yummo!!! It wuz delish!

Lick, lick, lick? Nope. It's supposed to be chomp, chomp, gulp.

Wednesday me and Kinley headed back to da groomer's.... I's not too fond of gittin' groomed. Last time we had to stay overnight... dis time it wuz only a coupla hours. 

We do look real spiffy now.... thanks, Matias, evfun if ya duz like Kinley best.  Maybe dat's cuz she don't scratch at him when he washes her face.

FLOWERS FOR DORY

Yikes! It shure has been a long time since my Momma posted fur me and junior... She would give some lame exkoose bout gittin' da pool remodeled or sum such thang, but dey is just exkooses fur her laziness if ya asks me!

We wuz so sad to hear 'bout Miss Dory goin' to da Rainbow Bridge. Dory wuz a fashionista like Whit and da rest of us pups here... and she luved da flowers. So since Kinley got da bluebonnets covered (well, except fur a pic of me, I wuz havin' an itchy episode and stayed home), we thought we'd post some pics from 'round our place (and I's insistin' on a bluebonnet pic of me frum last year!)



These flowers is fur you, Dory....


I thinks that wonky ear of mine has come back up some... Mom sez it's like I's a lizard er sumthin', my uncanny ability to regenerate myself.

And since Brinley wuz whinin' at me dat she didn't git a solo shot ovfur on Kinley's blog, here's one of da brat....

Flowers from our place...






















I'll let Momma post 'bout da pool tomorrow... today it's fur Dory... miss ya girlfuriend....



Bark ya later, gators....
