Well our corn finally came in and we've all been working REALLY hard to get it picked, fixed, and put away in the freezer.
Course as usual I had to do MOST of the work.
Mom, Aunt Nell, and Aunt Jane helped out but you know how it is. Most of the really hard stuff falls on my shoulders.
It was me that had to organize the clean up crew. Me and the other perros had to stand by and clean up all the little pieces that went flying off outside the pans while they were cutting and scraping the ears of corn . Even Leona, the parrot helped!! Whew!!! What a JOB!!!!!
Anyway we got LOTS of corn in the freezer now and it sure is good!!!
My two legged brother and sister, Joray and Bud, took my ATV the other day and went to one of the old gold mines. It is just on the other hill from our house. It is shut down now but it is still real interesting to see. And Mom says there is probably still gold there!!
Mom says one day she will take me there and I can look for some gold. She tells me I could probably buy LOTS of treats with it!!!
Mom is posting the pics of the gold mine at my photo site www.mrbudbud.shutterfly.com along with some other shots of a sunset, fixin' the corn, and one of Larry, the new resident cat.
Enjoy the photos!!!

Mom's been laughing ever since she got home today. Us perros didn't get to go with her but she told us ALL about it....when she could catch her breath from laughing so hard.
She, Joray, and Aunt Nell went to San Jose today. Mom HATES to go there cause it is really confusing and she always gets lost. Lots of one way streets and stuff y'know. They were going to look at a washing machine that Aunt Nell wants to buy.
Well, due to bad directions, as Mom predicted, they got lost and ended up on a dead end street. The road they went in on was one way so they could not go back out the way they came!! They just kept ending up on dead end streets where construction was going on.
Mom and Aunt Nell were both a little agitated at this point. San Jose is NOT a good place to be lost.
Aunt Nell called the man who owns the washing machine to try to get directions.
She was going to get out of the car to look down the road that was under construction to see if she could give him any landmarks.
Here is where it starts getting funny.
Aunt Nells cars automatic seatbelt is broken so she is in the habit of just slipping the shoulder part over her head and exiting her car.
But MY cars seatbelts work like they are supposed to.
When she tried to get out of the car she just slipped the shoulder belt over her head and stepped partway out of the car.
The lap belt was still fastened!!! She reached back and undid the lap belt latch.
NOW the seatbelt is around her waist because she put the shoulder strap over her head.
Mom grabbed the camera and took a picture right quick.
Aunt Nell, Mom and Joray all were laughing so hard they could not breathe!!
Mom says that little episode, with all the laughing, relieved the tension of being lost and made everything better. They found the mans house and bought the washing machine and a few other items.
Now every time Mom thinks about the seatbelt thing she gets laughin' and can't stop.
Coca Cola flew out of her nose while ago!!! Us perros were AMAZED!!!
But that's ok with us perros. We LIKE hearing her laugh and we don't mind a little coke shower....oh....and she gives extra treats when she is in laugh mode.
Hope you guys had a good laugh today too. Mom says a good laugh is better than any medicine!!

I haven't written in a while cause Mom hasn't had time to sit down and do my typing for me.
We've got new furkids here and they keep us runnin'.
We uploaded some photos to my photo site so you folks could see what we're talkin' about in this message.
Little Bingo is still with us. He just got fixed a couple of weeks ago so now he is ready for a brand new family!!! He and little Milana have been playin' like CRAZY!!!
He LOVES the great big dog beds!! The other day the lady who helps Mom clean house was here and she stacked all the beds up in a pile. Well Bingo wanted to go to bed so he just jumped up into the toy basket and zonked out there!!!
Uncle Lance is down here visiting and Mom is REAL happy about that!!!
Mom went to Panama with Uncle Lance, Joray, and Aunt Jane. They had a really good time and saw lots of neat stuff.
Mom says the neatest thing they saw was a sloth IN A STORE!!!! They were shopping for some hardware for Dad and there was this woman walking around with a sloth hanging around her neck. Mom and Joray wanted to hold it so she just handed it over and went on about her shopping!!
There is a rescue shelter in Panama for wildlife and this lady helps out the shelter.
Sloths are VERY gentle animals and not at all aggressive. They move so slow that moss grows on them out in the woods!!!! How lazy is that????
Mom says they are cute though and REAL sweet!! She says ya don't even have to hold them!! They just clamp on and hang around your neck!!! Kinda like those toy monkeys with velcro paws!!
They sure do have some LONG FINGERNAILS!!!! But this kind had only two!!!
On the way home Mom saw one trying to cross the road and was afraid he wouldn't make it so she turned around and went back to get him and move him to the other side of the road. By the time she got back a truck had stopped and they were moving him!!
They got a picture of a cemetery in Panama that is built on a hillside!! Mom says it is a beautiful place to be laid to rest.
They also saw a black squirrel!! We have them here in Costa Rica too but we haven't seen any here.
Our corn, cabbage, tomatoes, beans and stuff is growing like crazy!!! Mom got some green tomatoes off the plant the other day and fried them up with corn meal!! She REALLY loves those things!! I don't like them though.
We are getting lots of fruit off our cactus too!! It sure is strange looking!! It turns red on the cactus and when you cut into it it is REAL red and has lots of little black seeds!! Mom says it is really good. She won't let me taste it though cause she says it might not be good for perros.
The birds really go for it though!!!
Mom saw some Howler Monkeys down at the river yesterday and took some pictures. There were lots of them but Mom could only see one family. A mama, a daddy, and a baby. She got some pics of course!!
And we got a new little girl into the shelter the other day. She came complete with 4 brand new puppies!! Somebody threw her out, pregnant, on our road. The neighbors couldn't catch her at first but after she had her puppies one of Mom's animal kids caught her and brought her down. She is a cutie. Her name is Lisa. She was pretty skinny at first and she didn't have much milk for the puppies, but now she is better and the puppies are FAT!!!!!!!
Well, that's probably enough for now. Mom says I'm a chatter box and her fingers get tired trying to type everything I say.
Y'all go to www.mrbudbud.shutterfly.com to see the pics!! There's a couple of pretty sunsets on there too!!
OH!! And one pic of a couple of the rescue kittens who got adopted.
