Life With Sharon, or, How Much Can a Dog Take?

It's really been boring around here with Mom busy packing all day and not paying much attention to me. We haven't played bunny for days and it's been too rainy to go for a walk. I know a lot of you guys have had snow, but we've had so much rain that it's piling up under our house. We had to spend a lot of money having a sump pump put under the house for the new owners. The only interesting thing that's happened is that the workers found a really big 'possum under the house who was really upset with the ruckus everybody was making. I guess it's not a good thing to have a 'possum under your house, because every one was making a very big deal out of it and they finally decided to set a trap for him. 'Possums aren't the high scorers of the animal kingdom on the Intelligence Quotient but so far he's been smart enough to stay out of the trap.

Mom took me back to the SPAW for a swim yesterday since I hadn't been getting much exercise. It was good to see Melissa again, but I still don't like to swim. We're going to go once a week for a few weeks, just to stay in shape. Now that I've lost weight and have a waist, I have to be careful not to put the pounds back on.

Next Friday is moving day. I'll finally get to see my new home. Mom says I have to pick ONE place to pee and stick to it so she'll know where to put the pee pads. I might have to try out a few places, though, to see which is the best one.

Had my teeth cleaned this week - nice to have clean, shiny choppers again. Mom got a discount because I don't have very many of them. On Tuesday I have to go to the groomer again. It sure is a lot of work keeping up a good appearance.

Moving! Yipes! Don't like that and you have my personal sympathy. I know how uprooted you can feel, but your Mom should make everything OK. Those possums, not, their very high on the IQ list, guess that is why they make such nice coats!

Hey Patch, Rain, no bunny playing, and big pee placement decisions.....what a time for you! With our snow and cold and your rain, nice weather can't come soon enough! I don't like any big rodent types, so hope they catch that possum! Once we saw one lying right in the road in front of our house and Mom wouldn't let us even sniff it out. She thought it was dead or was it playing "possum"? BOL

Keep us posted on how the move goes. You will have your momma by your side so we are sure everything will be just fine.
