Puppy Prep - Bet

Howdy Ho everybodies!

You know, I mentioned it in the blog post yesterday, but it wasn't until I looked on the calendar in the kitchen (featuring the Pretty Curly Tails of course) that I realized HOLY MOLEY we've got puppies coming soon!

Sure Tramp is as big as a house and all, but it just didn't dawn on me that we're gonna have to get moving on getting the place ready for puppypalooza!!!

Since I'm officially "Aunty Bet" for all North Wapiti puppies, its my duty to prepare the house for puppies and do all of that "Aunty" stuffs... and things for them. 

It never occurred to me until today that perhaps I wasn't doing everything I needed to do as an Aunt, so I looked it all up on the Interwebs to find out what other things... and stuffs I needed to do in case I was missing something.

According to the interwebs authorities, one of the things an "Aunt" must do is throw Tramp in a shower.  Um... wow!  I didn't know that.  Really, I had no idea!  I guess it gets the mother all nice and clean before the puppies arrive and all that, but I think its a bit drastic, but whatever.

As you can imagine, it didn't go over as well as the interwebs authorities said it would.  According to them, it has to be a surprise (trust me, it was), but that the mother would be all thrilled and giggly and happy (trust me, she wasn't), and that all of the invited guests would play games and have fun (well, they played "catch the soaking wet and very mad Tramp as she zoomed around the house spewing water all over", but I don't think they had fun).

The Musher pointed out that the interwebs authorities said that I had to throw a BABY shower... but that's just downright CRUEL!  Throwing little puppies in a shower and all, I'm not doing that, what sort of Aunt does that????

The Musher then pointed out that a "shower" is actually another name for "party".  Um, seriously peoples?  You already have the word "party", what's with adding another name for something that already exists?  I could have saved everyone a WHOLE lot of grief this morning.

I'm still doing research, but apparently the next thing I have to do for the shower party is bake Tramp a diaper cake....

This is just so DISGUSTING!  Where do they come up with this stuff?????

Bet - it is VERY confusing...I agree...LOL! How about you just find Tramp a nice Dentastix to chew on...? That should keep her happy...and quiet (for about 3 seconds)...

Let us know when the puppies get there...we cannot wait...!

I would like to see a photo of Tramp as she waits. And one with her mouth open is perfectly acceptable...what other way would she be anyway? HA!

Going into the mind of a Border Collie is like going into a rabbit hole. (today let's say bunny hole) It's exciting & fun, but slightly dangerous. I'm sure "Tramp" would agree.

Bet who is the daddy of Tramps would be puppies? I am sure you can help console her as she whelps her puppies as all Aunts would do, now that sounds pretty easy don,t it. Will be waiting the news about Tramp and the puppies.

We think the daddy is Crunchie... or Wifi... she is a Tramp after all - Bet

Let's hear it for all the Iditarod Siberian Hussies! and the soon to be new
North Wapiti puppies!

Wifi has been said to be obnoxious and head strong. That combined with Tramp's characteristics would make for some sled dog!

You a fabulous Auntie! Maybe we could all see Tramp ourselves & judge how large she is. Sometimes, I mean just a few times, you have been a little less than accurate in your descriptions of things.
Can't wait for more Tramp babies!
