I think I bit off more than I can chew rescuing old REX from the inhumane society a few days back.

He is eating me out of house and home. Oh wait. Right. He ate the house, too! But I do have a nice tent I live in now and REX hates the smell of mosquito repellent so I just keep spraying it all over the tent and my sleeping bag. (And me). SO FAR SO GOOD.

I'm sure things will calm down soon and all will be fine.

HEY! What was that blood curdling scream??? REX! NO! STOP! (That silly dog just loves chasing the postman. Glad it's a young fellow. Good runner that one!)

Now, to order more trees for the yard. Let me see.......

Pommy, you need to hire the Dog Whisperer to bring Rex's roar down to a manageable level. However, that won't keep the mailman, et. al., from screeching their lungs out as they set a new record for running a mile...
I got a chuckle checking out Rex's "portrait" ~ lovely smile, great pov, and the blue sky looks SO good with his doggy color. I also enjoyed the Johnny Depp clip, because ~ well, it's Johnny Depp! HAH!!
You must be feeling pretty perky these days. Your story-telling skills are as sharp as ever. Nice to see the "old" Pom again ~ not that 29 is old! Double HAH!!

Doozie Dotes here! Hi Gang. Gosh I slept like a log last night.

I don't mean that I slept well, I mean that I had to pretend I was a log so Rex wouldn't see me. He seems to be turning on me a tiny bit. Thank goodness for brown clothing and woodsy perfumes. (And that insect repellant!)

I am so happy for your notes of advice here and I am going to rent a 63 foot long flat bed truck today and this puppy is going to obedience school. No more of this bad attitude nonsense. Not with any dog of mine!!! No bones about it except that big bone Rey was talking about. We live in Alberta. An area with one of the largest dinosaur finds in the world and I had a few bones excavated yesterday.

Yippeeeeeeee! We are making headway.

Rex seems happy this morning. I cant even hear him.

Uh oh. Wait. He's gone. I better call the fire department again. Little Rex doesn't mean to but he takes down electrical wires when he leaves the yard and it gets tricky with the neighbors when the wires dangle in their yards.

I will keep the generator going so I can keep reading your handy notes.

Thanks everyone!!!!!!!!!!

Have a great day!!! Ha!

Can we borrow him for the Rex Parade next Mardi Gras down in N'Awlins?? As you must realize, it is the most respected and prestigious parades in New Orleans society! Don't respect this Rex, and it's the LAST thing you do!

It's 7 AM, Doozie-Pom, so I won't be spilling any bons mots this morning...Just a reminder to wear rubber-soled boots when Rex is out amusing himself by trashing the electrical wires. Rain is NOT your friend at that time!
I think Carol's suggestion re: Mardi Gras is a splendid one. Can you picture all the jaws dropping whenever Rex's float rounds a corner? Let the good times roll, but head for the hills!!

And this is such an amazing image of your cute (little) pet.
The colors and details are - no kidding - really fantastic. And your pov is too. You caught his eye in such a way that I feel he's watching me. Oh - wait - he is!!!!!! WUAHHHHHHHHHH!!

You guys are so fun :) I have some bad news.

Rex is missing. His tracks were easy to see until he left the grassy areas and hit the highway heading east towards The Drumheller Badlands.

I hired 200 people yesterday to look for him out there in the badlands. It's nothing like the Canadian Rockies that are plush and green. Why in the WORLD would REX want to go there???

Here is the footage. At the end of this tape that one of the 200 people took, to my shock, see something very very odd. Does REX know something we don't know???

"The Dinosaur Capital of North America" ~ how cool is that?!?!(And not just because it's in a cave!)
Looks like Rex got homesick and missed his mommy. Was that him we saw headed for the cave? He probably wanted to visit his toothy grandma inside.
Maybe it's best he stays with his oversized relatives and friends. "Stick to your own kind", and all that. But whatever happens from here, we all know you can handle it, Pom!

Mary! You were right! This just in from the Handy Cam!

Rex is in fact in Drumheller and apparently he found his Mama!

LOOK HOW HAPPY HE IS!!!

Can you believe the size of her?
That is ONE BIG DOG!

Well, they look so happy there together that I think I better leave well enough alone.

And now I will get a good nights sleep...

You know, REX was pretty nice to the trees. It was the house he demolished. Darn it all anyway...

HOWEVER he chewed off all of the tree-tops. Don't get near him or you might be in the market for a tree toupee. (So they even make them?) hmmmmm......

Oh wait..."Top a tree and watch it fill out at the bottom". You'd be looking at weight gain. Ha!

Thanks Chrissy! HeeHee

Irene - He's great at shoveling snow..or was that digging ditches?? I will send him your way if I ever see him again okay?? I know you need a hand down there.

Jill be sure your hubby see's this one. (But be sure he doesn't head to the pet store afterwards....as there was only ONE T-Rex dog. I suspect the T-stood for thunder. Read this thread for the rest of the story! Lol!)

Thanks all!
