HAPPY HOWL O WEEN... + KHAMP BARKS A LOT

HAPPY HOWL O WEEN TO ALL OF YOU...     We hope you get like 87 treats and NO tricks.

Now fur another addition of Khamp...
   What would Summer Khamp be without SWIMMING???    Now Turbo had NEVER been in swimming before and he was Terrified...    we ASSured him that our Life Guard would take good care of him...     we had to SHOW him it was Safe to go in the water... and then...
 He gave it a try...


 Once he Mastered the POOL...  he became a Swimming FOOL.
 We couldn't keep him outt there...      It was Love at furst Splash...    and when his peeps came home... and mom told them that TURBO is out back... in the pool...  they CALLED him... and he wouldn't even COME to them...   they had to go to the pool and DRAG beg him to go home with them...  and he still wouldn't... so they had to Pawmise that they would go get him his OWN pool...  THAT got him outta there in less than 87 seconds...
 Now...   another imPAWtant Khamp activity... is      FARTS and CRAPS  stuffs...    Of Course Turbo had never done any of THOSE either... so....     Out came the String/Yarn and the Glue and the stamp pads and....         CHECK IT OUT...
 I (Count Seller, Frankie) gave it a good going over... and said...   GOOD JOB Turbo.  
 ERNIE was not so impressed with the MESS that he made, though..


 BUTT I said...    Hey Turbo...    Farts and Craps  are FUN and you can do ANOTHER PAWject...  look what he made fur his Mom and Dad...   He used some of his own KIBBLE to make this Special SIGN.      What do you think?

Khamp Barks A Lot... #3... and Happy HOWL O WEEN Eve.

We hope that this post doesn't SCARE anybuddy.    It is HOWL O Ween Eve...  butt we will try to keep thingys ...  CALM.

OKAY...  so Turbo comes WAY TOO OFTEN when his peeps need to go to Pitch Burger Hospital.
   AND... that leaves US to teach him impawtant Stuffs and to do Fun Thingys...  We have to sort of have like 87 Lesson Plans... it is exhausting... butt we know we are doing the right thingy fur our neighbors.
    SO...  this was way back in the HOT SUMMER....   July 27th actually...   This is Turbo... we showed him how he could sit on our front porch and look across the street to his Left... and SEE HIS HOUSE...   so he could Watch fur his peeps to come home... and to keep him from being worried that he would be HERE... FOREVER.

 THEN we started teaching him CAMP Games and Activities...   WE love this one...  TUNNELing.
     Furst Lesson was to show Turbo that it is Fun and Easy to do...
 We had to demonstrate (that's a teaching method) how it all worked..
 And while we Demonstrated... and gave advice and instruction... Turbo was to OBSERVE... that is a learning tool.
 Observing is also an EVALUATION tool fur seeing how our  POOPil is pawgressing.   Ernie did the Evaluations...  he was QUITE HARSH....  Butt Turbo took it like a Champ.
 Ernie often discussed the lesson with Turbo.   DISCUSSIONS are both Teaching and LEARNING tools..  
         AND there was a TON of encouragement...   ... THAT is very impawtant fur Poopils.  Learning is HARD and one NEVER wants a POOPil to become overwhelmed or discouraged.
After about 87 sessions...   and a few....  mistakes....


WE had Complete Success...      
Turbo learned to go IN one tunnel... turn and come Back through the OTHER and  I was right there ready to give him a snack  an  A+   

Turbo had Never Ever even Seen a Tunnel until he came to Khamp Barks A Lot... and LOOK AT HIM NOW...      he had a BLAST....    sometimes we had Mom roll his Ball Toy through a tunnel.. and once he MASTERED the Technique...   he had a BLAST playing that game...    he would even take his ball toy to the opening and set it down and BEG mom to roll it in fur him.
      He sent his peeps about 87 TEXTS... Showing and Telling them how much he Loved Khamp and saying that we were the bestest Khamp Count Sellers ever to be.      
     Now that is not the ONLY new thingy he had to learn...   wait until you see what we did TO  with him NEXT.

Flower Friday... SORT of...

Mayor ARTY is runnin a No Tricks... all TREATS Bloghop so we wanted to put up the treats that we had Mom make...
    THESE are Witch's Lips....     Made with Apple Slices, Peanut butter, and Slivered Almonds fur Teefs.
Help yourself to a set of Lips...   OR to these gems...       MUMMIFIED TUBE STEAKS..
   Mom made these thingys to take to COLORING fur the Ancients... Yesterday.
         *********************************************************************
OKAY...   we don't really have a FLOWER to show you today...  BUTT this IS about a Living Plant/Tree thingy... so we HOPE it counts.

Last Summer (TWO SUMMERS AGO)  when we went to BAR in Indiana...    WE won a PRIZE and this is what it looked like...  at the end of LAST summer....

 It came in the Plastic Tube...

 THIS is the Day that we actually Planted it... two summers ago...   you can see how much it grew the furst few months...


 It grew SO much last summer that Mom had to give it a GOOD Trimming before bringing it in fur the winter....  
BUTT wait until you see it NOW...
      It is TWICE as tall as this time last October... before mom trimmered it.
 We had mom put a 12 inch Ruler in there so you can tell how tall it is now...
 AND BUSHY even....
 It is TALLER than the Porch rail...  
Mom may need to call the Tree Trimmer Guys to work on it now...  
   We wanted Angel Dory and Arty and Jakey and Posy to see that mom is we are still taking good care of it.    

Pee S.... we will resume our Khamp Barks A Lot series on MONDAY...   Have a wonderful weekend everybuddy.

Khamp Barks A Lot PAWt.2

OKAY.... you Met... TURBO... and you now know why we have him coming to INVADE "Visit" us.
    Butt before we begin...  Mayoress Emeritus Madi asked yesterday....  WHERE DOES TURBO SLEEP...     Ernie goes in the other bedroom with DAD while Turbo is here... and Turbo sleeps in the room with Mom and me.   Sometimes he is on the bed with us... all snuggled up... and sometimes he gets down and sleeps on the carpet at the foot of the bed.  
           Ernie would HATE sleeping with Turbo... (YES I WOULD< Frankie) butt he misses sleeping with ME...  (YES I DO< Frankie).  
So now we will tell you about some of the stuffs we have done to help keep his mind off the sad and worrisome stuffs....
   Now Turbo is an INSIDE dog...  he only has a LONG chain to be on when he goes outside...   and WE have this hooge FREE ROAMING Safe Fenced yard...  and let us tell you that Turbo LOVES it.     We had to teach him the good spots to look around and see fun stuffs...   he learned that FAST...
  We had to teach him the Shady spots to nap in during the Hot days... and the Sunny Spots fur other days...
    AND where he would have his PICK NICK Suppers every day...  
     No problem with THAT lesson.

Where to PEE.... and where NOT TO...    he likes to pee on BOTH of our Hydrants...   he likes our RED one SO much that he even had his peeps get one fur HIS yard.     Just sayin.

 OH and Ernie taught him Who to Mess with...
 And who NOT TO...                         Just LOOK at how BIG he is...     BUTT trust us....  Ernie kept him totally under control...           Turbo was TRYING to TALK to Ernie... butt Ernie was havin none of that...      
 And that he was welcome to play with HIS TOYS... Inside and OUT...   He loves chasing this toy when mom takes him out and throws it really FAR...    You should see him JUMP and grab it mid air...     can't get a pic of that beclaws mom can't hold the Phone and throw the toy at the same time.
Wait until you see some of the OTHER thingys that we did with him.      OH... did we mention that he calls US... the KHAMP   Count Sellers ....      and he does everythingy that the Count Sellers tell him to.      Just sayin.

Khamp Barks A Lot... PAWt 1.

OKAY...   here is the deal...   our neighbor   TURBO... is having some problems with his peeps.

His Dad has the bad  "C" thingy...     as you can see... he is pretty depressed over it...   BUTT...
   WE are doing OUR PAWt to be GOOD NEIGHBORS to Turbo and his peeps...   They have to go to PITCH BURGER, Pencil Vane E Ah... to the hospital... and STAY fur a few days each time...
   Turbo can't go...   SO...   We putted Our Heads, Paws, and Tails together and...
Started...
Khamp Barks A Lot
    This is how it goes...   at HIS house Turbo doesn't have a Fenced (SAFE to Rip and Run and PLAY in)  yard.    He has to go out on a long Chain.      
    WE DO have this HOOGE Fenced Yard...
Now We COULD have sent our mom Back and Forth (In and Out) and Back and Forth (In and Out) about 87 times every Day and NIGHT...     and you all know about this being the street which Claims MANY DUCKS... so we were sort of worried about MOM crossing the street and stuffs..   and that is when we came up with the BETTER PLAN..
    We would have Turbo come HERE to our house (which does NOT make Ernie a happy camper) BUTT sometimes you just gotta put Others ahead of one's self.    SO   Ernie Sucked it up like a VACULA on a Rampage... and  said...    Bring him ON...   Butt he had better behave.
    OKAY...   so back in JUNE this horror plan went into action.
 We had Turbo's Peeps bring him Safely across the street.. with his OWN Foodables and SNACKS..
    It actually takes TWO Strong Peeps to get him over here...  butt only ONE to walk him HOME again.      
   So Turbo has been coming over here... and it takes ever so much of our time when he is here.   THAT is PAWT of why we were on such a LONG LONG summer/fall break...    
     We will tell you now that Turbo's dad is taking Treatments Once a Month now... which is a LOT easier than when he had to have 87 bazillion tests... and then Surgery on his BRAIN...  and then a bunch more days of recovery and then all the trips to Pitch Burger fur setting up what kind of treatment(s) he would be having...    At the beginning of all this...  Turbo was here fur DAYS and NIGHTS and Days and Nights...   fur MOST of  5 weeks... with just a day or so in between times.   ONE day his peeps got HOME... and even BEFORE Turbo could be escorted back home the hospital called them and said RUSH... RUSH... Right back down here to Pitch Burger.       Turbo didn't even get to SEE his own peeps...that time.
     Now you can see why we have had our paws full...      Did we mention that TURBO is HOOOOGE???     we are not kidding you... he is HOOGE...   butt fortunately he is VERY GENTLE...    and nice with us...i dont care, Frankie... I still dont like having him here   butt he is constantly WORRIED about his dad... so we have had to come up with about 87 different Games and Activities.. and Farts and Craps...      What would KHAMP be, withOUT doing Farts and Craps activities??????...     we will tell you all about this stuffs in the next few posts...
    WHEW...   sorry to be so LONG and Boring... butt we needed fur you to understand the background of this  Khamp Barks A Lot   thingy.
PEE S....    1.   Turbo's dad IS DOING WELL with the Chemo and Radiation.
                              2.  Turbo only needs to come ONCE a MONTH now...
  from SUNDAY until TUESDAY.    Three Days and Two Nights...
