Basque's Wonderful Childhood

Just thought we give an update on little Basque. Now imagine a child that has just learned there are toys and other kids to play you have Basque. This little furkid gets cuter by the minute. She has discovered that her sister furkids all love to play and it is a riot to see the 4 jumping and running together. Basque especially likes Kendall and they both seem to play the longest together and initate all actions. One minutes they are on top of each other, the next rolling on the floor, then running outside chasing each other and more fun. What is interesting is our Mother Superior as we call her, MacKenzie keeps a close watch and barks if things get out of hand. Basque is also having so much fun re-arranging the toys from the toy box to the back yard but did get a warning about touching Rosie's Col. Potter blanket.

Basque has also discovered she can move things with her mouth. As a matter of fact we have plotted all items in the house and any thing between the floor and two feet is not safe. I found her and Rosie both dragging the family room entrance carpet out the patio door to the backyard.....everything and any thing appears to be free game. Even the humidifier was on its way out until Foster mom spoiled the fun and said a stern NO.

Basque is also coming closer to Foster dad and accepting treat from his hand when he is not looking. Tonight Basque surprised us with a new hiding place. While Foster Mom was busy getting ready for Easter Dinner she found it odd the kitchen cabinet garbage drawer kept opening so Foster Mom kept closing it (lucky softly). This went on for a bit until Foster Mom started wondering why Basque had not come around lately especially since Foster Dad and that teenager were busy elsewhere.....the idea hit her to open the garbage drawer all the way and sure enough there was Basque as happy as anything. Basque has also learned how to open the garbage cabinet door but hitting it.

Foster Mom forget to tell Foster dad about this and while foster Mom went shopping Foster dad decided to count tails and came up one short. This caused quite a commotion and an immediate lock down was declared and the neighor Cairn Rescue team (lead by our neighbor an ex-marine) was engaged. A search of the house with Foster Dad in a panic was conducted while the ex-Marine and his band of troops (kids aged 12, 8, 6 and 5 year old) started looking around the neighborhood. (yes we have actually practiced this drill). A short time later Foster Mom arrived home and of course there was Basque fast asleep in her new space. Ice cream for everyone and we went about our business while I saw the family room carpet again go by and heading for the back yard pation door.

Basque wishes everyone a Happy Easter and vows to continue to surprise us! She can now be seen looking for an easter bunny and/or easter squirrel in the yard :-)
