Bath Day



abby100 Hi! I'm Abby! Me, Maddie and Izzy all got baths yesterday morning. We don't like baths, but when you're a dog you don't have much choice in the matter. Once you see the towels and shampoo come out before hearing your name being called, there isn't any way out.

And do you see that illustration up above? Why is that little boy smiling when he's in the bath tub? Why is that dog bathing him? Am I supposed to give my humans baths, too? If the answer is yes, I don't think I could do it. I'm scared of the water. It's noisy!

After our baths, Kristin did more packing. While she was cleaning out the kitchen cabinets, our neighbor's came over. Mom and our neighbors sat outside in the backyard to visit. I was so happy that I got to go out there, too! I love it outside. It's my favorite place in the world! I think about it all the time and dream about it all the time. Kristin says I'm obsessed, but I think it's just love.

After Kristin finished packing everything in the kitchen and upstairs linen closet, she kept her promise and we played outside in the backyard. It was a lot of fun. Playing outside is always fun!

I've never been to Disney World, but Kristin says that the outdoors is my own personal Disney World Park. Maybe one day I'll get to see this Disney World for myself. Kristin says there are a lot of people there, so I don't think it'd be a good idea for Izzy to go with us. She would bark at everyone, although Izzy would just say she was being sassy. I also don't think Maddie at Disney is a good idea, because she likes to herd people like she's a bossy sheep dog. She even herds me and Izzy whenever we wrestle. She likes doing that.

Kristin said that Disney World has a fairy godmother, princes and princesses. Animals, too! There's a really popular mouse and his mouse girlfriend, and then two dogs and a duck and a bear that likes honey and an Eeyore and a T-I-double guh-Urrrr.

What that is I don't know, but Kristin says I pounce just like him!

Well, that was my adventure yesterday. Today is a holiday named Easter. The Easter Bunny hides colored eggs and gives you candy. I don't know about the candy, but finding those eggs sounds like fun because he hides them outside! He hides them inside bushes and behind flowers and on fence posts. Doesn't that sound like fun?! Maybe one day dogs will start celebrating Easter, too.


Even though today was a holiday, we didn't really do anything. Kristin sat outside with me for a while, but then we had to go inside because we got a loud thunderstorm.

I'm not scared of thunderstorms. I wanted to go outside and play in it, but Kristin said it wasn't a good idea. I don't know why it wasn't a good idea though, because it sure sounded like a good idea to me. The lizards and birds and bees were still out there, so I don't see why I couldn't be out there with them too.

Maddie is really scared of thunder, so she didn't want to go outside. She just hid behind Mom's legs in the kitchen and whined a little. And even though she was afraid, she was still smiling. Unless she's sleepy, Maddie is always smiling.

Izzy is like me in that she isn't afraid of thunder. (Izzy isn't afraid of anything). She was really bossy, telling the storm to go away (so that I could go outside I guess), but the storm didn't listen.

Visitors and Exciting Stuff


izzy100 Izzy here, and welcome to me and my sisters new blog! We named it "The Tattle Tails" because we're dogs that like to tattle. We all enjoy tattling a lot, but I'm the best at it!

It's been exciting around here lately. A lot of guests I've never met before came over. One man came over twice. He's called a real estate agent, but I really don't know what that is.

Then another man came over yesterday. He had a camera with him, and he took a lot of photos. He said he liked our house a lot, so he took 175 pictures. I can't count, but I hear that 175 is a lot! When he was here, first we played in the backyard with Kristin. She got a little mad at me because I wouldn't stop barking at first.

I just couldn't help it though. Sometimes I get so excited when things are different around here, that I just have to let it all out.

I let it all out like this.... woofpup

I think she must have forgiven me though, because me and my sister's all got one of those yummy dental chews. It was chicken flavor! And when the photographer wanted to take pictures of our backyard, we all had to stay in Mommy's room until he left. We were very good.

Well, we were very good after a few minutes. Well, okay, Maddie and I were both good after a few minutes but Abby was good the whole time. I don't know if she was showing off or really is that well-behaved. Or maybe she was just tired.

After the man went home, a lady guest came by. This time, we all stayed with Kristin in the guest room. We were there a long time, but we had fun because we got fed treats, and all we had to do was sit and be quiet. After a while passed, we all decided to just take a nap.

But the excitement didn't stop there! The most exciting thing ever happened this morning. What happened was Daddy driving up to the house in a BIG moving truck.


See? I told ya it was big! For the last week, Kristin and Mom have been packing things into boxes. They needed that big truck to carry it all away to something called "the farm." Abby and I didn't know what a farm was, so we asked Maddie about it. She's older and knows such things.

She told us that a farm is a place where the houses aren't real close together like they are here, and that sometimes you can see barns and cows. Maddie told us that she loves the country, and that Abby will love it the most out of all of us. She said she'll love it the most because Abby loves playing outside so much, and because the farm we're going to live at has 43 acres!

All I know is that 43 is another big number, and that we're only going to live there for at least half a year. We're staying there while some other people build our brand new house on 2 acres.

Is that a big number, too? I don't know about that, but I do know that at our new house there's an old barn and that there are cows next door.


Maddie said cows are really big, and that they like milk or something. I don't really remember what she said, because I saw the mailman drive past while she was answering me. I was so excited at seeing him that I had to let that bark out again.

Oh! I forgot to say that the house we'll be living in really belongs to that lady that came by yesterday. She was sweet enough to offer it to us since it's been empty for so long. We're really happy she's so sweet because Mom was just about to not build a house because we didn't have anywhere to go after this house we live in now sells. She looked and looked for days and nights, for a place that accepts animals, but she couldn't find any.

I thought EVERYONE liked dogs and cats, so that was confusing and a little sad to me, but then I remembered a rumor I heard that not everyone liked cats. If not everyone likes cats, I guess the same thing can be said for us dogs, too.

But everyone loves me, so I guess it doesn't matter and that it's okay.
