ProfileHello. My name is Freckles, for obvious reasons. Mom says my birthday is December 25th, because I was a special gift to her.
Uncle Bill wanted me to tell you about the little brat named Hurry! that Mom brought in a few weeks ago.Hmmmph. Not every dog gets his very own punctuation mark at the end of his name...
He is a cute little fellow, to be sure, but he is very annoying. It would seem that this little guy got more than his fair share of herding instinct. All he would do day in and day out is herd us dogs.
I got smart. When we went for our walks in the field, I made myself scarce and ran off squirreling. He couldn't catch me in the trees. Instead, he just herded Derby, Flare and Frodo. He didn't dare herd Muna, or she would give him such a thrashing!
Anyway...Mom said little Hurry! was far too herdy for a normal pet home, and that he needs to be a working dog. Uncle Bill (I love him, he ALWAYS has tons of treats in his pockets!) called Uncle Jay, who runs a sheep farm. He told him all about the "Herdy One". Uncle Jay was very interested. He called Mom, and it was all set. Hurry! was to go and live with Uncle jay on the sheep farm.
So Bill and Lin came and picked up Hurry! and took him for a long drive out to the country. They took him to see Jay.
Jay really liked him. Hurry! was not so sure about these new critters with the wool all over them though. They were VERY interested in him.
Hurry! also made a new friend. His name is Mike. He is a Maremma, a guardian of the sheep. He is the same age as Hurry!, but he is MUCH bigger.
I think they are going to be friends. I also think Hurry! is going to be a great herding dog, and those sheep best learn to respect that little pup...cuz he ain't going to be little much longer!

Okay people. Seriously. Mom's friends got a Pug. I don't know why. They are weird. They have no face, and they ALL look like that famous English guy Winston Churchill. Every one of them, even the babies.
This picture Mom took looks like Winston Churchill looking in a mirror.
So Mom's friends got this little Pugly dog names Pebbles, and it turns out that Pebs is "with puppies". Yep. You heard me right. She came into rescue PREGNANT.
Long story short, 6 of these bizarre little critters plopped into the world 8 weeks ago.
Then a few days ago, Mom's friends Kim and Darren come over, and they bring the wee beasties into MY HOME. In MY YARD. I used to LOVE Auntie Kim and Uncle Darren. But they KNOW those dogs scare the daylights out of me! Someone stole their faces!!!
See? Their nose is right between their eyes like some kinda weird space monster! And Kim and Darren love em. And Mom was giggling like a little kid watching them running around and pooping in MY GRASS.
Kim and Darren think they are adorable. YUCK.
It was all too much for me. I came out to see what all the fuss was about, and they chased me and made me screech. I think if they had caught me they might have done something horrible. *shudder*
I have been having nightmares ever since. Creepy little things...I am scared to close my eyes at night...they might come back and get me!

Sometimes life just ain't fair. First of all, Auntie Jordan picked MUNA as her girl for a commercial...not ME. Muna gets ALL the glory, all the time. TO make matters worse, if you can believe they could possibly be worse...last week Auntie Deb gave Mom a beautiful pink collar with pretty rhinestones on it for ME. I was wearing it, and looking OH so gorgeous in my bling. Everyone who saw me in it "OOHED and AHHHHED".
So what does Mom do? She took off my bling, and put it on MUNA for the commercial!!! Can you believe the nerve? The utter audacity?
Seriously people! Look at this.
Does that crabby face look like the face of a tv commercial star, or someone who should wear my bling?
I think NOT.
One of these days I am gonna revolt, and it ain't gonna be pretty.
*hehe* Jessie took that picture. I can look nasty when I want to. :)

Well, it looks like I was not the star THIS weekend. Hmmmph. This weekend the stars were Frodo and Derby. Muna, Frodo and Derby got to go to a frisbee competition. I didn't go because I prefer flying squirrels rather than a silly plastic disc.
Derby got first place in single disc in trial one, and Frodo got first place in freestyle. I could do it if I wanted to you know. I just think it is all very silly. Who needs all those pretty ribbons anyways.
The second trial, Frodo got first place in single disc, and third in freestyle.
Mom's friend Dave took some pictures. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I really could be a frisbee star if I wanted.
I guess I will just settle for being beautiful.

We went to visit Uncle Steve a few days ago. We all got to go out and play frisbee. Uncle Steve convinced me that playing frisbee was fun, but really I prefer to chase squirrels. I will never get as excited about it as the others.
Uncle Steve's furry kids are CRAZY! LOOK! The jump off his back and they fly through the air!
This is Snippy!
And this is Rojo, Snippy's daughter. They are as crazy about frisbees as I am about squirrels!
I just don't get it...they are not furry and fast, they don't run up and down trees and chatter, and yet they still love to chase them.
Rojo also does a trick called "Halt". She lands on Uncle Steve's back, and she stays there.
That is pretty good! I could do it if I wanted to. HMPH!
Frodo and Muna are frisbee crazy too.
Muna was doing weaves through Uncle's legs.
and Frodo was doing all kinds of fun tricks too, like over Uncle's leg, under him, catching two frisbees at once.
Personally I think they are all nutty. It isn't as much fun as flyball or squirreling.
Still, to each dog his own I suppose.
