S: It's a Dog's Life
FC: It's a Dog's life Starring Pepy, Josey & Cleo with Guest Stars Killer, Ms. Prickle & Angel
1: Pepy Marie Rucker | Josey Jeanette Rucker | Cleopatra "Cleo" Rucker
2: Hi, I'm Pepy. I'm number One Dog. | Wayne adopted me from Papa. Later he met and married Jeanette. I didn't mind. She took good care of me too.
3: I exercise before my daily nap | Rub to the right, then rub to the left | I wouldn't say that I'm spoiled - just loved. | Yep, I have the only hammock in the house. I use it for my daily naps.
4: Running up and down the stairs really works up my appetite. Come on, Ty, slip me some food. | Sometimes we play hide and seek. HaHa - here's my stuffed friends.
5: It's important to get enough ZZZZZ's everyday. Sometimes I sleep with my Pooh Bear. | Since I'm an only dog, I can sleep wherever I want.
6: I may be small, but I was a good watch dog. I said hello to everyone that passed by each day. | When at Grammy's, I taught Anel how to be a watchdog. We kept watch for Wayne pulling up. I'm pretty athelic as well - that balance beam was easy.
7: I even got my own T-bone, but I had to chew on it outside. It was so good - I couldn't sit down to eat. | I loved to eat | My own plate | Thanksgiving | Just because | I didn't like this machine! I shouldn't have to work for my treat. | After I ate, I tucked myself in my special blanket for a nap.
8: I'm included in all Holidays. Look - Pooh was brought to me by the Easter bunny! There's Ms. Prickle opening her presents with me at Grammy's house.
10: Shhhh... I'm hiding. The black poodle keeps coming back first Killer, then Ms. Prickle - now a little one named Angel.
11: Angel came to my last birthday party. I was 15 years old. | Time to spread my wings and fly
12: Hi, I'm Josey. Wayne & Jeanette adopted me from Caps. I had to stay in the cage when I was little - I'd squeek for an hour when they came home each night. I was afraid of the vacuum cleaner and hid in the closet. I didn't like my first bath. Now I get a shower.
13: For such a cute puppy, Josey looked funny as she grew up. She would climb under the bed, but not realize she wasn't totally covered. She never could figure out the treat machine. Angel came upstairs to visit every night.
14: I was growing so fast, while we lived at Grammy's. I couldn't fit on the coah like I did before. Angel & I both have balls to play with. | I make a good 'Dogula' - see me creeping up on someone.
15: I like to stretch out on the floor. I got my green bandana when a snake bit me. I loved digging in the sand as our new home was being built. Then I'd need my nap.
16: I thought I got a new toy today, but it moved! Wayne brought Cleo home as a surprise for us. She seems so scared. | I'll let her use my monkey to sleep, but she can't have my ball. It looks like she swallowed one already!
17: Hi - I'm Cleopatra, but they call me Cleo. It took a couple days to name me. They wanted a name that fit. It does too! I know I'm Queen of the House. | I even eat out of Josey's bowl sometimes. But I do like to snuggle with Jeanette. When she's in the shower, I'll snuggle on her clothes.
18: Josey & Cleo are quite the pair. In order to play, Josey lays on the floor and Cleo climbs all over her. Even when Josey tries to sleep by herself, Cleo finds her and snuggles close. Cleo got her first chip on vacation. She didn't care for her first sink bath either.
19: Happy Birthday Josey! Josey turns 1 today and we had a party. Rachel, Ty, Emily and Emily came over for the party. We set up the pallets for the sleep over - Cleo was the first one asleep.
20: Fishing for Cleo | We play together all the time. Josey lets Cleo think she wins when wrestling. | She can't dribble the ball - she has to carry it. | Nap time | Love to eat | Cleo's digging | Josey's peeking | Josey would love to sleep alone, but Cleo has other plans | Don't you eyeball me!
21: Happy Halloween | Oh boy! I hope I got some treats. I see a new toy. Yippee!
22: We love the Holidays! Holidays mean we get to lick the pan. | Sometimes they can share a pan. Sometimes they want their own. | After they feel the tummy, it's time for another nap. Cleo tucks herself in and Josey stretches out.
23: Cleo helps wrap the presents - lending a paw or two. I think she wanted to peek. | Josey was wshing and hoping for a taste
24: Happy Birthday Cleo! She turns one today. She thinks the pile of sand was her present.
25: We watch "The Easter Bunny is Coming to Town" as we check out our backets. We always get good gifts and treats.
27: Cleo gets sick in toilet. | Year by year start flying by. We enjoy each moment we have together. | Cleo eyes her toy on the coffee table.
28: Our Happy Family - a man, a woman and our two 'girls'.
29: Josey loves to catch the ball. Cleo can't catch anything, but she loves pushing her egg around the yard - yapping all the time.
30: Josey relaxes in the backseat. Cleo's standing tall. | When it thunders, Josey hides under the desk. | We all gather around for Grnadpa's haircut.
31: At Christmas, Play and make good cheer, For Christmas comes but once a year. Josey starts guarding the tree when presents are underneath. She checks on them and does not let us move any of them till Christmas morning.
32: Josey has another birthday
33: Josey finds a new friend. She visits the frog each night. | Cleo run so much, she had to lean against the wall to rest.
34: Another Christmas celebration. We run around and visit both Grandparents - it really made Cleo tired. She finally tried to hide, but she was sticking out.
35: You never criticize me Or get angry when I'm late. You love it when I hold you And you never make me wait. | Your love is unconditional Considerate and kind And best of all, my precious pet, I'm yours and you are mine. by - Brenda Darlene Kijowski
36: Cleo is so excited. She finally has her own sandbox. She starts digging for gold.
38: Josey always has a smile ready to greet you. Cleo is a little more high strung. They are our 'Girls'
40: Josey chases off the deer on Christmas eve while Cleo sleeps in her shoe. It was raining the next day, so we made a raincoat for them to go outside.
41: We tried several times to get the perfect Christmas picture of all of us. We never got one with all looking straight with smiles.
42: Christmas is our favorite time. Santa is always good to us. We move from toy to toy till we fall down. Cleo decided she will open her own presents. She gets mad if we help. She tears the paper till all is removed from the toy.
44: We nap wherever we can, but we want cushion - not a hard floor. They both play around the giant easter eggs.
46: Cleo loves to lay out in the sun. Then she'll roll over and stratch her back - just to lay still once again. Hang around doggies and kids; they know how to play; they know how to relax; they know how to love.
47: Our 'Girls" Cleo & Josey Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our life whole -Ann Landers
