Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy



Luke 2:1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. 2:2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 2:3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. 2:4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) 2:5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with Child. 2:6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn Son,and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger;because there was no room for them in the inn.2:8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 2:9 And, lo, the angel of the LORD came upon them, and the glory of the LORD shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 2:10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the LORD. 2:12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 2:13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 2:14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

2:15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into Heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the LORD hath made known unto us. 2:16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. 2:17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this Child. 2:18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. 2:19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. 2:20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. 2:21 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the Child, His Name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before He was conceived in the womb.

Merry Christmas to each and every one of you!

Helpin by Hucklebuttin

Ok, seein as how I'ma 'fficial member of this tribe now I think I shood get ta post more AN' use pretty girlie colors too! Now that the 'nnouncement is outta da way.......

DawgDaddy spent a real long time rakin' leaves, an' burnin' leaves, an' workin real hard on da yard last week all by his-self, so I decided I should help him. DawgMom even got the flashie movie box out so y'all could see what a good job I done.

I mean, they feed me these pawsome foodables, an' make sure I have my medicines ever'day, an' take me on long walkies in da woods an' let me smell all dem cool smells, like deers, an' tree rats, an' rack-a-coons I tink they're called, ya know, them dudes wif da maskes on? Well enny ol ways DawgMom will let me smell an' smell an' smell. Ya know, dem woodsie critters leave more pee-mail than Chief, my little Chinese Crested brudder does an' HE leaves like a whole GALLON of pee-mail ever'time he goes outside!!! I was walkin' today an' I smelled some pee-mail from a new dude in da neighborhood. I telled DawgMom to look on dem ADT movie boxes an' see if she could see who da new dude was what left dat new pee-mail. Well, she looked an' she just telled me da new dude was Mr. Postum. Well I don't know 'bout all that now, I don't even know what a Mr. Postum looks like, but I don't think DawgMom would lie to me so.....

Anyways, the whole point of all dat was since they are so good to me, I thought I'd be good ta dem an' help so before I show you da movie jus' let me say it was funnerer than chasin' tree rats to help DawgDaddy wif dem leafs.

Pee-Ess can some-bully tell me what a Mr. Postum is an' what he looks like???

Goodbye our sweet little sister

*DawgMom here, I'm posting today instead of the Bullies. I copied & pasted this post from my blog. The Bullies will be back to posting in the next few days.*

Lounging on the couch
Tink is on the right
Bossing the dogs in the camp set-up next door


Enjoying her bed at a dog show in Chattanooga, TN

It's a very sad day at my house today. I have to help one of my beloved babies cross the Rainbow Bridge later this afternoon. I hate it! I know it's best, but I hate it! Oh, how I wish our 4-legged babies could be with us longer.
Tink is our 14 year old Miniature Dachshund that I rescued 9 years ago from a horrible lady that had her only for making money. She is one of the sweetest, most patient, loving little rescues I have ever had. She is very easy going, wants to please and for a baby that lived such a horrible life before I saved her, she gets along well with the rest of my menagerie. She's very sociable and yet, in typical Dachshund style, could be stand-offish at times. She is very protective of her pack, especially me. She was a wonderful companion to my son while he still lived at home, loved him dearly and would *protect* him from any number of *boogey men* that might come into his room at night.
The first 5 years of her little life was spent in a dirty crate, pregnant most of the time. She had 6 litters of puppies by the time she was 5 years old! SIX!!! That means she was bred every time she came into season, starting with her very first one! She came from a horrible woman who is now sitting in jail, thank goodness, after being convicted of animal abuse! HURRAY!
I got Tink a few years before her POS ovwner was arrested. At the time, I was grooming at one of the local veterinarian's clinic and the POS that owned her had brought her in to be euthanized. Her reason? (and I quote) "the bitch only gave me one puppy last time, I can't make money that way" So rather than do what a responsible breeder would do, place her in a loving home, she didn't want to be bothered and wanted to euthanize her instead. I asked her if I could take her and find her a good home. She told me I could *have* her for $150, otherwise, put her to sleep. Well, I wasn't about to give this POS any money for her, so I left the room. I was so mad, but what was I going to do? Anyway, the vet came out and asked me if I really wanted to try placing this little girl and of course I said I would. The vet then went back to the room, told the lady (I use that term loosely) we didn't have time to euthanize her right this minute, but if she would sign the release form and leave her with us, we would euthanize her that afternoon. POS said fine, signed the form and left. The vet then brought little Tink to me and said, "Here, take her and find her a forever home."
I brought her home and began working on her evaluation and getting her adjusted to living a *normal* dog's life. She had obviously rarely been out of that crate. She was terrified outside and would stand there so stiff I thought she would break. She didn't want to stay on the couch, or in a dog bed, or walk around on the carpet or hang out with the other dogs. All she wanted to do was go back to her crate. I had to keep the door to the crate closed just to keep her from going inside. She would sit there, by the door, waiting for me to open it back up. She had no idea how to potty anywhere besides her crate. She was afraid to eat anywhere except in her crate! In other words, her world consisted of her crate. It took me nearly a year to get her housebroken and acting like a normal dog and of course by then, I was so attached there was no way I was placing her. She stayed with me from then on. That was 9 years ago.
I vowed she would live a happy life if I could give it to her and she would not end her life in pain or suffering. She had enough of that in the first 5 years to last 2 lifetimes. So, the time has come for me to honor that vow and keep that promise I made to her all those years ago and let her cross over. She has been a wonderful companion and has brought me and my family joy ten-fold and I thank the Lord above for allowing me to take this little Princess home with me that day 9 years ago.
Goodbye my sweet girl. Thank you for your years of love and faithfulness and companionship. Go play with your old buddies, Pixie, Blarney and Marilyn. Be sure to kiss your *Nanny* for me and tell her I love her. (*to my wonderful Mother: Please take care of her for me until I get there Mom)

Wordless Wednesday~but I wanna talk!!

(my boo-timous mama, China Doll)
(me & my brother Winston at the Silverwoods)

(Me & Winston, nose sugars)


(Me & my sister, Callie-Claire in the Silverwoods last year)


Ok, enough of this nonsense about wordless Wednesday when I wanna talk! It's a load of Bull and not the good kind like us Bullies! So, while DawgMom is in her dumb stained glass room (she calls it a *studio* well whoop-dee-doo, it's a dumb ol' room with alot of colored glass in it that we are not allowed to go in) any ol who, while she's in there working on more dumb glass thingies, I'M GONNA TALK! Wait.....what???
Feather-Pappy yer gonna get in trouble!
Pappy-Not if you shut your face I won't.
Feather-I'm tellin ya, DawgMom said go to bed!
Pappy-Who are you now, the Bullie Hall Monitor?
Feather-Ok, I'm just sayin'
Pappy-Well how about you just DON'T say & do like DawgMom said, Go To Bed!
Where was I? Oh yeah, I'm pretty tired of this whole Wordless Wednesday, I see other dogs post things on Wednesday & THEY say stuff. So.........Ima post pictures of me & my sister Callie-Claire & my brother Winston & my mama China Doll when we were in the Silverwoods last year. We had so much fun there! It was in some place called Oar-Lan-Doe & it was so hot! I mean blastin hot, like hades. But we still had fun. I got to sleep in the big bed in the hotel room & it was just me & DawgMom, I didn't have to share with DawgDaddy or anybully else. Then the next night, I sleeped in my own den that DawgMom brought with us & Darla sleeped with DawgMom. Something about it was just bein fair-whatever, I didn't think it was fair to ME! WHAT?...Wait, what?....
Darla-Pappy will ya quit whinin about me sleepin in the big bed? I mean really it was LAST year!
Pappy-Yeah well maybe it was last year, but it still wasn't fair.
Darla-Yeah well give it a rest already!
Pappy-blah, blah, blah yer supposed to be in bed.
Darla-you are too, want me to get DawgMom?
Pappy-Go ahead, I'm not skeered.
Darla-we'll see (*evil grin*)
So ANYWAY, before I was so rudely interupped again......all the Bull TerrOr people are havin them Silver Woods again this weekend, but we don't get to go! What a bummer! DawgMom says we can't cause the Silver Woods are in some place called Sand-Ho-Say & it's too far for us to go. NOT FAIR, totally NOT FAIR, I had fun last year & I wanna go again! She said we could go next October cause it will be in Filly-del-fee-uh next year. I wish somebully could tell me how them Silver Woods keep movin around! So I wanna tell all my Bullie friends that get to go to them Silver Woods this year to have fun & get some ear scritches for me. WHAA.....uh oh!....
DawgMom-EXCUSE ME MISTER, why are you out of bed?!
Pappy-uh...uh...uh
Feather- I TOLD ya!
Darla-BOL BOL BOL BOL, smartie pants got caught! BOL BOL BOL
Pappy-shut up ya'll
DawgMom-BED, right now Mister, you are not supposed to be on the computer
Feather-I think he was surfin eBay DawgMom, he was lookin at toys.
Pappy-was not
Darla-was to
Pappy-was not
Feather-was to
Pappy-DAWGMOM I was NOT!
DawgMom-all y'all go to bed. Good night my sweet kids!
Pappy-Can I at least tell my friends Good Night?
I gotta go, I think somebully ratted me out. Night y'all hope you liked my Whining Wednesday




(note from DawgMom~Pappy is a little on the whiny side sometimes, but the girls don't help that a bit by picking at him & teasing him. Also what he is calling the "Silver Woods" is actually called Silverwood. It's a yearly event put on by the Bull Terrier Club of America that crowns the Best American Bred Bull Terrier. It rotates across the country, being hosted by one of the regional Bull Terrier Clubs and this year was San Jose, CA, next year Philadelphia, PA, and in 2011 it will be back on Orlando, FL. This is event is held in conjunction with the National Specialty each year and folks come from all over the US & other countries to compete or just be surrounded by our beloved Bullies)

STILL on groundashuns!!

(upside down & under my bankie)

Hey Ever'Bully! LizzaBella here! FINALLY, I get a turn on the bloggie! I've been wanting to write sumthin for a long time, but I think my Bullie brother & sisters splained to ya'll that I'm a little shy. Ok well alot shy, but I'm gettin better. DawgMom & DawgDaddy have been real good about teachin me I don't need to be afraid of things & I'm learnin.

Now I'm going to use this first postin to tell ya'll about Feather Louise & Darla Jean bein on groundashuns~~BIG TIME groundashuns! Me & Pappy are not on groundashuns tho, just the 2 girls. Wanna know why???

(sleepin upside down like a real Bullie)

Well cause last Sun, on DawgDaddy's birfday no less, the broke the fence & ran to a neighbor dog's house & got in a fight with him! Well, they tried to fight. The neighbor dog was in his yard, behind his own chainlink fence & the girls were on the outside of his fence. Well from what we can gather from listenin to DawgMom & DawgDaddy, they were runnin back & forth tryin to start a fight wif this other dog. Darla musta stuck her nose in his fence to bite him & he GRABBED HER NOSE! Man you should see it! It is real, real bad! He was tryin to pull her through them little bitty holes of the fence by her nose!!!

Well, DawgMom, DawgDaddy & that other dog's person was tryin to get him to turn her loose & he wouldn't do it. They tried ever'thang & finally, finally Feather run up to him & tried to bite him back & when she did that, he turned Darla loose & DawgMom pulled her away from him! DawgMom had her hind legs up in the air so she could get her away & it was easy for her to pull her real fast. DawgDaddy put her in the BullieBlazer & went to get Feather. Well Feather was busy tryin to fight that dog then, but DawgDaddy caught her & got her in the BullieBlazer too. There was blood ever'where! On DawgMom, DawgDaddy, Darla, Feather even tho she only had one boo-boo, in the BullieBlazer, just ever'where.

DawgMom got both of them all cleaned up & started them on antibiotics and they look alot better today. You can't tell Feather had a boo-boo now. DawgMom uses Bach's Rescue Cream & she says that is the best stuff. I think turkey legs are the bestest, but DawgMom says Rescue Cream is better than turkey legs. I'm not so sure about that.

So anywhose, they are both better now, Darla Jean's nose is gonna have some big, ol' scars on it, but at least her nose is all ok & she can still smell things. DawgMom says to make sure I tell ya'll those pikchurs are pretty graphic (don't know what that means, but she said to make sure I say those words) and that ya'll should know that before you look at them. So I said it & now ya'll know.

(Pappy hidin so he don't get on groundashuns)


Remember, these pikchurs are real bad lookin.............



(Closeup of Darla's nose)

(Darla's nose)

(Feather's boo boo nose)

Next time, I'll tell you more about me, but for now, I wanted to let ya'll know what's been goin on here.

Oh & DawgMom has got all the pressies for the Paw It Forward & will get them out Monday mornin in the mail!!

So, until next time, ya'll be good!

The Winners are.....

(we're not sure what Great Rock Eater's name is,
he/she didn't sign the comment, but we will find out)
(The Great Rock Eater's real name is Lilo, she's a cutie-pie Puglette!)
(can ya'll read the names after Peggy Sue ripped 'em?)


Finally, we get to tell ya'll the winners of the Paw it Forward!! We are so excited bout it! Peggy Sue did a good job, but DawgMom had to keep tellin her not to eat the papers before she got to read them. She almost did, but DawgMom saved them in time.




Like always, Cissy wanted to get in on the action, she thinks she's all that & a Big Mac ennyways, but when she saw what Peggy Sue was doin, she walked away! Can you beleive that, she was mutterin sumpin bout bein above that nonsense. Don't know how she is above it, she's on the floor right next to Peggy Sue? She's just so dumb. Sheesh!




Ennyways, Peggy Sue went to work pickin thru the papers wif the names on 'em. She looked at 'em, she pushed 'em around wif her nose, she sniffed at them, then finally got down to business & started pickin names. She seen this one & pointed her little feetie at it.



But just when DawgMom reached for it, she had to look & see who's name was on there, guess she wanted to be the first to know. So DawgMom finally got it away from her to read the name & take a pikchur of it. The dumb flashie thingie weren't workin right for some reason & only a couple of the names showed up in the pikchurs.


So now, what we want ya'll winners to do is send us a pee-mail wif yer address so we can get yer pressies out to you. We will visit yer bloggie to tell you that yer a winner too, case if you miss our post. Our pee-mail is TNBullTerrors [at] gmail.com (course ya'll know how yer supposed to type out the pee-mail so it will work right) DawgMom says big, nasty spiders & buggies creep around bloggie land lookin for pee-mail addresses so they can send that yucky ol canned Spam stuff to ever'body & since we don't like yucky ol canned Spam, we ain't takin no chances wif them nasty buggies, so just be sure to type our pee-mail right.



See, she didn't want to turn that name loose! Wonder if she just likes to eat the paper or if she just wanted to be a brat?? Prolly just bein bratty!



Miss Fluffy Tail herself's name did show up in that flashie thingie. See that corner chewed outta the paper? Guess who swallered it?



Peggy Sue said that was alot of hard work pickin out names & helpin DawgMom take pikchurs so when they was done, she jumped on the couch, climbed under that pillow & took a rest. Guess Toy Poodles don't have the stamina us Bull Terrors do. She didn't snore either like we do. Oh well, guess we can't all be perfect. BOL!





Of course I can't sign off without lettin ya'll see a pikchur of me! That's me in the backyard, guardin my half flat basketball that I love so much! It's fun to play wif! So ya'll get them addresses to us & if there's certain things yer not allowed to have make sure you tell us. (Like no fuzzy toys or no normal sqeakies or well just whatever)



Later taters!

(oh I almost fergot, DawgMom has a FaceBook page & she wondered if enny of ya'll know how she can hook our bloggie up to her FB page?)

(Pappy playin wif a ball)


Good Thursday Mornin Bloggie Buddies! It's finally a sunny, purdy day here & we plan to hang out in the yard for a while today! YAH!! It's been like 12,698 days since the sky started spittin & now it's quit & we can get out there & get muddy! Yee Haw! (that's Tennessee talk for "oh Boy! or Way to Go, or Heck yeah!")


(Feather & Darla playin in the yard, look at Darla's big butt! hahaha)


Ennyways, about the Paw it Forward, we're gonna wait until 6 o'clock tonight, then put all the names in a pile & let Miss Peggy Sue pick out a couple of names for the game. We want to do it now, but DawgMom says she has to work & don't have time to do that right now. What=EVER! But since we don't know how to use that silver flashie thingie, guess we don't have a choice. Oh well, no matter, least we get to go out & wallow around in the mud!! Them mean minachur hoomans are all out to obedience skool so we can play in peace!

(Feather & her rubber chicken)


Dawgmom promised she would help us visit bloggies today too! 'bout time too, don't ya think? We wanna see what the NY Bully Brats have been up to & Sugar & Joe & Tanner & Mango & Tweedles & Bolo & Bijou & Banjo & Lacie Beast & Khyra & Pedro &, &, well ya'll get the idea, jus' EVER'BODY!

Monday, August 10, 2009

We're baaack!!


(me tellin Dad to hurry with supper)


Where to begin, where to begin??
First of all, we have missed everyone! REAL bad! And we are sorry if we worried anybody, it really wasn't our fault, it's DawgMom's! And we just want to know one thing? How come our peeples can put us on ground-ashuns but we can't put them on ground-ashuns? THAT is just not fair! But to be fair to DawgMom, we have been really busy & crazy here lately.

We have so much to catch up on....

First, we got this cool "Paw it Forward" package from Checkers the Peek-a-Poo right after DawgMom stopped letting us play on our bloggie! She did at least let us send him an email & say thank you, but we didn't get to post about it. We got lots of cool pressies in there, treats, bisquits, toys, man does Checkers know how to pick good pressies!! Now we want to "Paw it Forward" too, so to be fair, instead of the first 3 to comment since some of our bloggie friends might be in bed when this posts or sumpthin, we'll pick from the comments with the comment picker thingie (around here that would be Peggy Sue the Poodle) we'll put all the names in a bowl & let her pick 3 of them. We hope that is ok with everyone, but it just don't seem fair to say the first 3 when we have bloggie friends from everywhere & some of them are not on the same time as we are. Be sure to go visit Checkers, his Mom sells pet insurance that looks like some pretty awesome stuff, check it out!

(Peggy Sue, official number picker)

Next, DawgMom has been working on a new website for DawgDaddy's work. They have an auto repair shop and have been needin a website for a long time so she decided to make one for him. ya'll will have to check it out, she said to tell you she's still workin on it so there is still alot to do.
http://www.commonwealthcarcare.com/

(Pappy sittin like all us Bull Terrors do)

Let's see? What else? Oh yeah, DawgMom had a family rebellion too while we were AWOL. She got to visit with alot of her kinfolk, some that she hasn't seen in alot of years and boy did she like that. Course we didn't get to go, we never do. Sheesh!

Last week the brats in this neighborhood were teasin our little brothers and sisters threatenin to hit them with sticks!! Yep, we are still in this dumb ol neighborhood and still not in our house in the woods!! Just about all our stuff is moved there now, but DawgMom said we still need kitchen cabinets to be put up, then we can go. Well SHE needs cabinets, WE don't so why can't we just get the heck out of dodge for cryin out loud?? Anyways, DawgMom wouldn't let us out when those kids were outside cause she didn't want us to put a big hole in the fence that they would have to fix, but those brats were tryin to HIT our brothers and sisters!! I mean really, what are we supposed to do, sit back and do nothin??? DawgMom said she handled it, but we sure would have liked to help! DawgMom was so mad she started shakin when she heard that one brat say "Let me hit them with a stick and see what they do" Can you believe that?? Now we know alot of ya'll have kids of your very own, but we don't and the only ones we know are mean to us, so will you please tell us how we are supposed to like them when they try to hit us with sticks and things? Seriously, we really want to like them, but just don't know how.

(Darla Jean sniffin around the yard)

Can you believe DawgMom is already sayin get off the 'puter it's time for us all to go out potty since we had supper?? We PROMISE we will make her let us come back here and try not to let it go so long next time. Since she is retirin real soon & we will be in our new house within a couple of weeks, she will have more time to let us. After we potty, we'll try to start catchin up on bloggies.

(LizzaBella after diggin in the yard)


Finally before I go, LizzaBella is doin so much better! Look how happy she is now, you can see it on her face! She has learned to dig in the yard, look how dirty she is! DawgMom doesn't even get upset about havin to fill in holes, she's just so glad that LizzaBella is finally learnin how to be a Bull Terror. Look how much weight she has put on too!


We love ya'll, and we miss ya'll!!
