Rest, Relaxation, & Let the Fur Fly!



Well, it's been a busy few weeks here in southern California but now that things have settled down a bit I thought I'd catch up with you.Christmas was good and I got a Nylabone that I'm sharing with Sayer. It's almost destroyed already but I know I'll get another one if I just ask. I did have a bit of excitement on Christmas eve when some guy tried sneaknig into the house about midnight. I gave him a dirty look, a couple of sniffs and a licking and that scared him off.

You should have seen the soot fly as he scampered back up the chimney. Last I saw was a bunch of reindeer with a sleigh moving on to try to burglarize somebody elses house. I'm sure he won't try to come back. What a jerk.I just sent a couple pictures of an airplane ride we took last week. It sure is fun to get to go places again. We landed at a nearby airport called Cable airport and had lunch, then went to full up the airplane with gas and then flew back home.

Gary is back to teaching college classes again so I am in charge of the house a few hours in the morning till him and Sayer get home. Then I get to play hard for a while and boy does the fur fly! Vicki gets mad when she comes home and has to vacuum it all up but she doesn't really blame me because she knows I can't help it. It seems to me that with all that hair they could just add water and start growning another lab with it....what do you think? It would be a clone of me.I also sent a picture of me guarding their bed. The house rule here is that no dogs are supposed to be on the bed so I figured I'd be ready to chase any dogs away should they try to jump up. So far I've done pretty well and it sure is soft up there.

Gary has been planting lots of stuff in his back yard. So far he's brought in several heads of lettuce, and some broccoli. He has some zuccini, carrots, strawberries, okra, tomato, and beans growing but their not ready to pick. Besides that he's got some sunflowers, daffodils, iris, and other stuff I don't know growing. It's going to be about 83 degrees this weekend so he is excited to see his efforts multiply and grow. Say, has the snow melted there in Denver yet?Well, Sayer needs some attention so I'll sign off and go give him some. It's almost time for Vicki to come home and there isn't enough hair on the floor yet for her to vacuum up. I'll fix that problem for sure, even though Gary combed about a quart of black fur out of me this morning! He says I have about as much black hair as that Governor from Illinois that they impeached this morning.Would you send me some more pictures of Parka?

Maybe some frontal views and a few wide shots showing her entire side. Only please don't let Princess Coral know you're sending them....I think she gets jealous of me but I am handsome and I want to keep my black book up to date.Say hi to YOM and Grandma and of course Cuzzie and Parka.Till later,

Love, licks and belly rubs from Zane

Wow! You have really become a much better writer since you've been in LA. Must be something to do in being around a geologist/teacher and great El Ed Teacher.

So you must have a little BULL in you? I don't mean BS, but when you see RED, you get a little crazy like with Santa! Keep him on his toes and I bet you ate his cookies too!

I'm glad you're flying again. You were so nervous when you flew with me. Parka, your girl friend, does not even move when the plane takes off and lands> Hmmmm?

You look like quite a guard for the bed? In fact, you look like you are asleep! You know, I think most guards that I've seen sleep on the job, so I guess you are doing a great job!

Gary's backyard sounds great! I'm ready for a salad just reading that. Have you partaken yet?

Well, since I'm growing up, that Princess will not just be enough! I'm a future Queen, you know, once Cuzzie is out of the way!

Thanks for sharing so much! I really look forward to getting to know you better.

Love, licks and chipmunk love,
Queen Parka

Awww what a good life Zane!
The backyard sounds really pretty!
When Nikki goes on vacation next time and decides to leave me, can I go visit you?

Your Forever Princess
