Blue Heeler Name Change

Cookie No More (A Barn episode)

Do you remember the new blue heeler dog at the barn, a recent dog adoption? Her name was Cookie. Well, you better remember since many of you asked for an update. I was at the barn recently and when I asked about Cookie, nobody could give me an answer. I repeated myself, explaining I wasn't talking about edible cookies, but I got nothing. I started to panic then. Cookie's family were all tragically dead and poor Cookie herself, the sole survivor, was in poor shape when rescued. I looked to the right. No Cookie, but somebody was hiding behind a tree. I went around and saw:

Nathan, you silly goose, um, horse. I thought you were Cookie, the blue heeler.

I wanted to keep looking but M grabbed me because somebody allegedly got me a present. I was hoping for a dog treat. I looked for my present and saw:

OMD Please scroll away

Once I flattened myself in place, thus convincing M I wasn't going to wear this, no way no how, she got it off me and I started looking for Cookie again. Wait, what was that I saw between Nathan's legs?

Wrong again, 'twas my pal, Peetie, the doxie.

I was starting to panic. Nobody could talk to me about Cookie. Nobody knew of a Cookie. At this point, I came up with an idea.

'Scuse me Zamiro and Ringo, would a blue heeler happen to be between your lovely heads?
They neighed me away. Huh, horses can be so private at times.

I heard some noise from one of the stalls, so I decided to take a look.
Not you again, Peetie the doxie! Sorry dude, get back to work

I hope you realize, by now I was fearing the worst when all of a sudden I heard Maddi's voice. Cookie loved Maddi, also a blue heeler, so I ran to see if perhaps I could finally locate the Cookie Monster.

Twinkie: Boomer! What are you doing?
Boomer: Who, me? Keeping Maddi's tail warm
Maddi: Tiny chihuaha, get off of me now or I'm wagging!

Maddi did indeed have the answer, "Twinkie, if you're referring to the crazy baby Heeler, she didn't like her name." I was confused, and Maddi noticed. "She goes by Holly now." And that's when I turned around and saw Cookie, err, Holly.

She's become a soccer player now

And she's so serious about her future career that she asked for the name change herself.


My blue heeler and recent barn dog adoption asked me to say hello to y'all



UPDATE: I just heard through the grapevine, okay, from Fiona, today's the day we get to vote for Sporty Dogs at Mango Minster 2010. If you check out MM you'll find that there may be a slight delay but keep checking. They actually had to break Sporty Dogs down to two groups and with all the crazy things happening over at MM, it'll be interesting to say the least.

Twink! Twink!

And yes you are Darwin's first tiny friend! Tiny dogs actually scare her... they usually are very yappy to her and she's not big on yappy dogs.

Oooo, i like the look of Holly and all those horsies and doggies together. what a great family!

re: adding disclaimer about no dogs being harmed...sorry, no can do. Most certainly my dogs were harmed in the making of Doggie Gras photo shoot. Their reputations were harmed. Their pride was harmed. Their egos were harmed. yup, there sure was a lot of harming going on when making that shoot! LOL! besides, i don't know if you know how we train at Wild Dingo, but we train with skillets, rolling pins, waffle irons, bats. you name it... boooowhahahaha! ;) LOL (i kid. i kid!)

Smushie Ranch said...

Whew, that was tense for a bit there Twink! Ya think everyone could have gotten a clue and just told you Cookie changed her name to Holly...bol!

Glad you found your friend.

Twink, I'm not sure why it's posting my replies so many times. I had no idea! I'm going to try to push the button very gently this time.

I'm so glad that Holly is now living a happy new life! Hopefully she'll be playing soccer for many more years.

Mom says that part of why she loves Lilac so much is her naughtiness, except when it keeps her from sleeping!


Oreo said...

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Silly Twink! I wasn't sabotaging you! Mom just re-posted the (almost) exactly same post from earlier today because she emails the post to a bunch of people and wanted to let them know that MM was open for voting. Good luck! (I think my early lead in the polls is because my Mom got her Mom and a couple of other friends to vote...) I'm really glad that you found your friend Cookie, ah Holly.

*kissey face*

PeeEss: I think the best thing about MangoMinster is all the cool people - like you - that I've met since it started!
