Happy Mother’s Day!!!

Since my Mom was too lazy

to help me make a video,

here is one that she stole from YouTube

for me to use to wish everyone a


Cats!!!! Geeze!!!

We had a pretty taxing morning here at “Casa De Dakota” .

It started at about 4:45 am when my brother Cody, aka  “The Henchman”  (as Dad so aptly  calls him), proceeded to strut through our condo like Paul Revere…shouting with all of his might “Feed Me NOW, Feed Me NOW!!” (you cat lovers out there think kitties are saying “meow” they are really saying “Feed Me NOW!

That was all well and good for a while.


About an hour later he was discovered in our pet food closet (thankfully Mom didn’t see this or she would have lost her mind).  I went into full -Sheltie throttle mode. Let the herding begin!!

I barked and circled and shrieked until Dad came and discovered Cody who he said was just “sitting there looking at him.” (He tries to look innocent but I can see right through that facade!)

Dad closed the closet door….


He did it AGAIN!!

This time he was in MUCHO trouble! MOM saw him! She discovered that he was trying to scratch through a bag of cat food that Mom was saving to give to a rescue. Thankfully he didn’t puncture the bag with his can-opener-like  claws and sword-like teeth.

Everything was fine til a few hours later. Mom was getting ready to run errands and was giving me my pacifier  Kong ball. She called Cody too for his food and he didn’t come. Mom didn’t think much of it and left.

When she returned she noticed Cody’s food was untouched. (She had never seen that in the four years he has lived with us). Mom went into major panic mode.

I watched as she ran and opened closets, the bathroom, she looked in every one of Cody’s hiding spots and couldn’t find him anywhere. Then, she starts yelling at ME saying “Where’s your brother!? Where’s your brother!!?? It’s not funny Dakota, where’s your brother!!??” (I was thinking, “dogs laugh? That’s a new one on me!”)

“If I knew THAT crazy cat woman I would tell you so I wouldn’t have to listen to your ranting and raving!”

Then I heard Mom crying…I felt really bad. She was saying “I lost my cat! I lost my cat!!”

She went back to the bedroom closet and opened the door for the FOURTH TIME…out popped….CODY!!  Mom was mad cause he just strolled by with his tail in the air all happy and proud and went straight to his food bowl.

Cats….I’ll tell ya, what a pain! Cody caused more than his share of trouble today and I  was the one who got  blamed!!!

Hi Everyone! I am hoping I don’t lose subscribers with this one!

Before any people get upset,  my Mom is  saying “KITTY Porn” in the video….NOT “KIDDIE”….

This video was shot a few years ago, my Mom has a sick sense of humor and really loves this video of Cody and I.

Since that time  we totally redid our living room too, so please excuse how it used to look!

To those of you with a wicked and insane sense of  humor like my Mom…enjoy!!

To anybody else….it’s my Mom’s fault, not MINE!!

Barks, licks and butt sniffs!! Dakota

And Then There Were Four….

When I came to live with my Mom and Dad there was somebody else already living with them. That “somebody” was my now “kitty brother,” Cody.

Cody was adopted on July 28th, 2007, just a couple of weeks after Bobo passed. Mom couldn’t stand living without a cat any longer so she adopted Cody.


Cody was the King around their house from July until I arrived on the scene in October. Now we share the title. Mom still favors Cody much of the time (I am “too loud” and “in her face” too much) Mom likes the “love ’em and leave ’em” kind, the kind that love ya then SPLIT into another room. That’s just not my style. Dad, on the other paw, thinks the sun and the moon and the stars rotate around my luxurious fur, and THAT is as it should be!

My Daddy And I

Mom worried for weeks about how Cody was going to adjust to having me around (what about how I would adjust to HIM??). Dad happened to find a toy stuffed Sheltie that he bought for Mom and Mom got on the floor with Cody and went through all kinds of crazy gyrations, making the stuffed Sheltie “bark” and jump all around him. Trust me, that thing couldn’t even BEGIN to sound like I do when I am in a barking frenzy!

Mom was still nervous and searched the internet for how to introduce a dog into a house with a cat. She knew about others that would keep the cat and dog separate but she didn’t believe in doing that, she also didn’t think it was necessary. It wasn’t.

can't he stay in there forever?

Mom did a search online and read a tip about spraying herself, the cat and the dog with the SAME perfume. Then you bring the dog home in their crate and let the cat “sniff” around before letting the dog out. That is what Mom did! It worked like a charm! Cody only hissed at me one time (he NEVER has hissed at me again). The rest is history. We are best friends, “buds”, partners in crime and are great company for each other when Mom and Dad aren’t home. We love to chase each other. Cody always seems to win our chasing games. I don’t understand it.

Do you have a cat and dog in your house? Do you get along as well as Cody and I do? I sure hope so! Kitty brothers are the BEST!
