Four legs, a lick and a wag

    Hi, friends,

    Here is a new friend of mine, her name is Biscuit.  This is what she wrote this week.

    My name is Biscuit. I am a female beagle/boxer puppy mix (I think) about 7-8 weeks old. I was brought to the Ark Animal Sanctuary Monday. While there I met some really nice people who have held me and hugged me. Anyway, my story is this; I was found wondering by a nice lady at a nearby lake. She picked me up and took me door to door to see if I belonged to anyone, unfortunately, I didn't. However she then drove to the sanctuary.

    As I said I met lots of nice people, kittens, and Nancee. Nancee and her husband Dan thought I was sooo cute, they decided to take me home until I can find a forever home. They told me I will have a soft, brand new cage, my own water/food bowls, a new collar/leash, and most of all two cats to call my friend. Nancee said she is going to teach me to swim in the lake where she lives.

    The reason for me writing to you is that Nancee also said you are the “famous” dog that has his own newspaper column. Could you please tell my story and help me find a forever home? Thanks, Buddy I hope we can meet some day.

                        Love, Biscuit

    Well, I indeed met Biscuit and she is a nice young lady. She would make a good addition to any home that loves to snuggle, play and have fun. Call the sanctuary at 463-4142 if you think you might be interested in meeting Biscuit.

    I was in a bit of trouble this week. Yes, again. I saw these creatures in the woods, black and white, big and looking kind of strange. I crossed the fence, barked and they began to run. They looked really funny running so I kept chasing them. I felt pretty big because actually I am small but I made them run. Do you think this is bullying? I sure hope not! Anyway I was scolded when I returned – sometimes I just can help myself. My lake mom called it “little man syndrome.” I have no clue what that is, but I told her I would try real hard the next time to not chase them.

    Here is the recipe for the biscuits given out at the book signing last week. My town mom said they are pretty easy to make and several told me how good they thought they were. I liked them too. 

2 tablespoons corn oil

½ cup peanut butter

1 cup water

1 cup whole wheat flour

2 cups white flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine oil, peanut butter, and water. Add flour, one cup at a time, and then knead into firm dough.  Roll dough to ¼ inch thickness and cut with favorite cookie cutter.  Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Makes 2½ dozen.

    My town mom sprinkled a little brown sugar in the recipe because she knows I like things just a little sweet.  Hope you enjoy them.








    Gertie, Lucy and I were walking one morning this week and Gertie stopped dead in her tracks. She looked up in the sky and saw this huge, very colorful bird but it was making a loud, strange noise. She just sat in the middle of the road and watched as it passed over us and went north. I told her I knew what it was and she didn’t need to be cautious. Gertie said to me, “I don’t want to take any chances; it is too big and too loud.” I think it’s kind of funny that I wasn’t afraid, remember I am the little guy and Gertie, who is 90 pounds, was! It was just an ultralight enjoying the morning view from above the treetops.

    Don’t forget the annual Ark Dinner/Auction coming September 17 at the 4-H Fairgrounds.  Tickets for the Blue Gate meal are limited but the silent and live auction are open to the public.  You must get your ticket before September 17 as no tickets will be available at the door.  It’s our one big fundraiser to help all my buddies at the sanctuary.  Please plan on coming to help us.

    That is a wrap for this week.  Pat a four-legged friend on the head this week and meet a new friend, it might be the only one they get all week!

                   Your friend, Buddy
