Mom Has Her Hands Full

December 28th 2008 12:23 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Raffles and I wished really hard for Mom to find some new furry friends and it has happened. She now has a 4 year old Boston Terrier named Priscilla and a 9 week old Boston Terrier named Quiggles. Boy does she have her hands full now. We are so happy for her.

I think Mom forgot that puppies can be a lot of work. When I was younger Mom brought a puppy home for me "Raffles". Boy was he a handul. I had to do some serious training with that guy. That's why he's the loveable guy he is. I hope Priscilla is up to the task, because take it from me, it's the other dog in the house that shows him the ropes and forms him into who he is. Mom helps some, but it will be Priscilla that will spend the most time with him. Good luck Priscilla. Contact me if you need some pointers.

Of course Raffles has the big head because he says that he was such an unforgettable fella that Mom went with Bostons again. I tried to explain to him that Mom was going to get a Boston and a mixed breed just like before, but fate intervened and she got two Bostons instead.
Mom almost found a sweet little girl like me but it was not to be (this time).

My Mommy Still Loves Me Best

I'm so glad Mommy found 2 little faces that need her but I am jealous. I loved my Mommy something fierce and I know I was the brightest spot in her life too. She took it really hard when I left, and she still breaks down from time to time thinking about me. Time will help. Mommy used to joke that I was like velcro, always by her. I knew I had only so much time with her and I wanted to make every moment count.

Priscilla and Quigley keep her occupied and they will all grow to love each other and be each others best friends. Raffles and I will always watch over Mommy. Raffles say that with Priscilla and Quigley there we don't have to worry.

Uh oh gotta go. Raffles and Pongo are grilling steaks tonight and Ariana and I are making the rest of the meal. Cooking for 20, gotta run.

Love you Mommy - Callie

 

Happy St. Pat's Day Mommy

My Mommy's other name is Pat so we always had a fun time on St. Patricks Day. Happy St. Pat's Day Mommy. I didn't forget.

Everyone up here is wearing their greenery today in honor of St. Patricks Day. You should see the hat that Raffles got in a trade yesterday. A black bowler with green shamrocks on it and a bowtie to match. He's quite the sight. If he puts on that cape, I'm disowning him. That guy always wants to be the center of attention, but he's my brother and I love him.

There's a parade this afternoon being led by all the Irish dogs. The Irish wolfhounds are huge. We'll have to make sure Raffles doesn't get in their way. Adriana and I being the ladies we are, will be wearing lovely green shamrock collars. Nothing as ostentacious as my brother's getup. Us gals have been cooking up a storm this morning in our kitchen. We are having corned beef sandwiches and the fixings. Ah the aroma, it's mouthwatering. And of course everyone will bring something. We have the back area all finished now and it's huge and the guys just finished all the seating and tables. It's going to be a marvelous party after the parade.

I've been watching over Mommy and the Bostons from up here. Boy are those two a handfull. But, they keep Mommy sane. Mommy has been under a lot of stress lately at home and the Bostonians have been under strict orders from Raffles and I to shower her with attention. That Quigley is all legs. 10 pounds of legs. Mom wonders if he'll ever grow into them. He's a pistol but has to work on his manners. The little guy doesn't even know how to walk on a leash.
Mom is worried that he's so little he might get picked up by a bird.
Mom saw a Hawk in the alley yesterday sitting on a garbage can. A small hawk but one of the neighbors 2 blocks away said he saw an eagle. That worries Mom alot. So whenever the Quigster goes out she's out there hovering. I hope Daddy is as vigilant.

Well gotta run, the parade's about to start. I have to go get the gang.

Love you Mommy.

I Love You Mommy

Hey Mommy,

Raffles and I have been watching over you every night. Did you see the stars side by side. That's us hanging on to them. I told Raffles that this was one time his gas comes in handy, it makes our stars really bright so you can see us.

We know you are going through a very stressful time right now and we are sending you lots of love.

We've been in communcation with Priscilla and know she's taking really good care of you. We know she has her hands full because she's also dealing with the Quigley Pup - what a handfull. He has finally learned to sit and walk on a leash - we are very proud. We are glad you will be taking him to puppy class this week. It will give Priscilla one free night a week. She deserves it for putting up with him all day.

Gotta go. Raffles and I have a lunch date with Pongo and Stryker down at the bone bar. We are so lucky to have such good friends up here.

Love you Mommy - Callie & Raffles

P.S. Priscilla and Quigley need new photos - say hi to Maleka for me.

 

I Know Mommy's Missing us Something Fierce Today

Even though Mom has her hands full with Priscilla and Quigley, I know she's feeling sad today. Memorial day isn't just for people. Mom's remembering us too. I've been seeing her hold back those tears all day.

It's okay Mom. We stayed as long as we could. We wouldn't have wanted you to mourn for us, just enjoy all the memories we had together. I know I'll always have a special place in your heart, but I am so proud of you for taking on the challenge of Quigley and Priscilla. Priscilla especially. She has had a challenging life and I can't think of anyone else who would love her and take care of her better than you. Now Quigley is another story. He is so much like Raffles, you're in for big trouble Mom. I warned you about puppies. You didn't listen. Priscilla is a saint for putting up with him.

Raffles and I will blow you kisses at first starlight.

Love you bunches Mommy - Callie

Hey Mommy,

We can see your stress level is off the roof but you're hanging in there. Raffles and I are so proud of you. We know you will be okay. Just hang in there Mom, things will get better.

Love you Mommy

Diary Pick of the Day - I am so honored

Wow! That was unexpected. I just found out that Dogster picked me for "Diary Pick of the Day" yesterday. Mommy is so proud. This is my first time. Of course Raffles will try to take some credit, he'll say he coached me. As we all know he has the gift of gab.

Thanks Dogster. I appreciate the honor. And the best part is I'm hearing from all my friends, what fun. As soon as I get my breath back I will be thanking you all for my wonderful gifts.

Mommy woke up this morning to skunk smell. Daddy insisted on having the bedroom window open which is right by Mommy's head. Mommy's first thought was thank goodness Maleka had slept in the house last night. But after she got up she realized that Daddy had let Maleka out about 3:00 for a potty break and didn't bring her back in. Yup you guessed it - she's way stinky now. And Mommy has to take Grandma to the doctor and groceries and then she has a doctor appt so she'll be gone all day, so Daddy is going to have to deal with it. Mom gave him the formula of baking soda, peroxide and dishsoap, so we'll see how he fares. This is a guy who never ever helps with Maleka's bath. He'll have to deskunk her and clean out her kennel and get new straw.

Mom is so glad she shut the kitchen windows before she went to bed.

Poor Maleka - she hates baths.

Oops gotta run. I 'll let you know later how Maleka fared.

My 1st Year Anniversary at the Bridge - I Miss You Mommy

August 18th 2009 11:18 am

I can't believe it has been a year already that I've been up on the bridge. It seems like just yesterday that Mommy and I were cuddling and playing and saying how we'd always be together. I know Mommy is having a really bad day, but don't be sad Mom, just think of those 13 wonderful years we had. And hey it's a good thing I came up here to keep an eye on Raffles. He sure can get himself in a mess of trouble. So dry your eyes Mommy, I had a wonderful life. I had 3 homes before you rescued me and I knew I had found my forever home when you first scratched my ear. You gave me so much love that it will last me to eternity and I know we will be together again someday.

Look for the brightest star tonight, that will be Raffles and I looking down on you and sending our love.

Always your best girl - Callie

 

Birthday Girl

My friends, Banjo, Kiska and Greta showed up on my doorstop this morning with a beautiful pink cake and took me out for brunch. I forgot that it was my birthday, but those guys always remember. What great friends. We had a lovely breakfast brunch down at the bone bar.

When I got back to Flying Paws, Raffles asked me to get something in the back yard. As soon as I walked into the garden I saw all my friends and the place was decorated with bone balloons. It was a surprise party. Raffles and the gang really went all out. We had a wonderful day filled with food, games and swimming down at the beach. I sure am a lucky girl.

Raffles is the best brother. Tonight we will blow kisses to Mommy from our favorite cloud.

We are Going to Meet our Sister Maleka at the Gate

January 22nd 2010 3:08 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

It was a sad day. Mom and Dad booked Maleka, our 13 year old Husky sister passage on the Rainbow Bridge train. Raffles and I knew last week that something was amiss. We get these feelings. So we have already arranged a welcome and have a room ready at our cottage for her. She's a very sweet girl and loves everyone. She will be missed something fierce and once she gets through processing we will be reunited.

Her legs stopped working and she may have had a slight stroke. Mom and Dad did the right thing, she could only drag herself short distances and the medicines didn't work.

You will know her when you see her, she has the most beautiful steel blue eyes.

Uh oh, gotta go Raffles said we need to get ready.

We know you're hurting Mom - don't worry we will take the best care of her and she will be all healthy by the time she comes through the gate.
