More rains

Hopefully, I won't lose my internet connection before I can publish this.  It rained cats and dogs last night and the electricity went out several times and with it the television and internet.  Had no other option but to go to bed at 10:30 p.m.

The rains started up once more around 1:30 a.m. this morning (Monday) and the Internet keeps on going out. I hate to admit this but I was much better off when I had cable.  DISH sucks!!!

I knew the rains were coming and felt so guilty because Pedrito is tied up, so I released him after feeding him as well as Tammy and Oscar.  He behaved for a while then started bullying Oscar. The only thing that made him stop was the lighting and thunder and the fact that the other dogs left.

I have often wondered, where do they go to?  They have the garage/carport where they can be high and dry but they choose to go elsewhere.  Pedrito sought refuge behind the old washing machine in the covered patio by the kitchen door.

This afternoon when all three were eating another dog walked into the yard, he had a collar and looked like a pit bull.  The three of them chased him away and Pedrito started fighting with him. Then he decided to fight with Oscar.  There is no hope for that dog...he needs to be restrained full time!

I have a feeling Tammy is in heat and there will be more dog intruders coming around.  How I wish she would trust me and let me get near her so I could take her to the vet to be fixed!

We are under a flash flood warning as it is supposed to rain all day.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

    1. It is difficult to answer being that it is technically the desert and does not rain much.

      Per Goggle...May, August, September and October tend to be the rainiest.

  2. My oldest pup is deathly afraid of thunder storms, fireworks, gut shots, or anything that bang. The other two don't seem to care.

    1. Being that they are strays they are pretty much used to what the weather throws at them. However, we had strong electrical storms and very loud thunder so Pedrito seemed a bit intimidated.

  3. I would try to enlist the help of your local animal control org. to get Tammy spayed. As long as someone pays for the treatment and tries to take care of a stray, I don't see why they would care if you are the registered owner. Otherwise you are going to have dog fights while she is in heat, plus the puppies that inevitably follow. Someone else ought to be responsible for Pedrito as well. You are a good person to try to handle it all, but you shouldn't have to do it alone. That's my opinion.

    1. That is the problem Gypsy, in Del Rio we do not have animal control organizations. I will take that back...the city of Del Rio has a dog pound but they will not take animals that live outside the city limits (we live in the county).

      There is a local animal organization but again they are quick to tell you they only come to the rescue of animals in the city limits of Del Rio unless they are in bad shape or in danger.

      Tammy is a little wild dog and does not like for persons to get near her, even I who have been feeding her for almost two years.

      Pedrito is a hopeless case, he has a mind of his own, does not follow instructions well...he would have a hard time finding a home.

      That is why some cruel people take their puppies and kittens and dump them within the city limits.
