Well last night mom and dad slept a little better but did get up several times with their coughing. I just look at them through the crate, roll my eyes and give them the “I am trying to sleep here look”. Mom headed to physical therapy and I stayed home with dad. I am doing better about mom leaving and did not pester dad as much. When mom got home she went on and on how great her PT was today. The therapist worked on her neck while she was floating on her back in the pool. She said it was amazing how much she was able to do on her and how relaxed mom was. She was wiped out though and took a big rest on the couch. Her head pain started up yesterday again so it wipes her out. I decided to tell her about her head and alerted to it. She said thank you but she was already aware of it (did not sound grateful to me at all). Then she started coughing and it sounded like she was choking. I got very concerned and stood on her chest and looked at her. Once she finally quit she told me thank you but once again not that helpful. Mom said at least I meant well and thanked me. She worked on our friend Shadow’s travel mat and finished it. All she has to do is finish the shoulder strap. We are hoping he likes it and will make him comfy on his plane ride to Virginia. Then mom said since it was warm, sunny, and beautiful outside we should go out. I hung out in my pen with my big bone and mom laid in her reclining patio chair. I like to lay in the sun it feel soooo good. Our neighbor came by and told me how nice my bone was and gave me a good pet. He is one of my favorite people and I can recognize his voice from far away. In the evening mom and I worked on my retrieving. She picked out several items and put them on the floor. Then she pointed to each one with the laser pointer. I brought all of the items even the metal one up to her in the recliner. She said that was my best yet and was very proud of me. Those games always wear my brain out so I had take a big nap.

can you take a picture of Shadow's mat? :D
I am so sorry to hear that your mom and dad are still not better. This cold sounds nasty!
Boy was mom jealous when she heard about your mom's PT *sigh* It is wonderful how much effort everyone puts in to help your mom get better or at least stay pain free.
I agree with Barkley - good job Dora!!
Kisses for you (glad you enjoy your bone ;o)) and a careful hug for your mom, Jolanda and sonja

I love to retrieve!!!!! My mom says she will get a picture of Shadow's mat before she gives it to him so you can see. The fabric his mom had and it is really cool. Yes mom is so happy with Ashley her new PT. She said she is the best one she has ever had and has high hopes for her helping her. She said when she is no longer in the pool I may get to go meet her.
