I want to thank all the sympathy wishes all my pals have offered to us. They are greatly appreciated. Mom is doing okay, but I can tell it still bothers her and I'm sure it will for a while. Joe was a great guy that we will all miss.

Also thank you to the congrats on my DDP the other day. With all that is going on, mom hasn't had a chance to post so I am deeply honored by being picked again and thank you Dogster.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention that before we got to Manor Care Wednesday night we did stop to see Kay, the lady from mom's church. We can't go in the house too far cause she has a kitty that doesn't like us,but we were able to visit with Kay at the foyer and it was nice to see her again.

Last night we ran along with mom and Barb on some errands, but the fun is about to begin tonight. Emilie is coming to stay with us for an entire week so I will have someone to play with me all I want. She loves us dogs and I'm very excited about her coming. I'm also excited about the snow we are suppose to get. I heard it on the news last night and I just LOVE the snow and having Emilie to play with us in the snow is even better! I hope all my pals can enjoy the snow too and please stay safe!

 

Very sad news :(

I am writing tonight with a very sad heart. My good friend Joe at Manor Care passed away today. Mom found out when we first got there and needless to say we were all upset and poor mom was crying. Joe's wife Lois and their son were coming down the hall and we all cried together. God love mom cuz she pulled it together long enough for us to visit Roy but then we headed home and that was understandable. Please say some prayers for Joe's family to make it through this difficult time. And one for mom to help her too, she really does love Joe like a grandfather. We will all miss you Joe.

 

Not a fun weekend

December 9th 2013 9:40 am

The weekend started out rough. The weather was really bad with wind, rain, fog and it was dark. Poor mom was a nervous wreck til we finally got to the cabin. Needless to say with the bad weather we couldn't play outside at all so we just chilled in the cabin.

Saturday was cold, but it finally stopped raining. Only problem was that it is hunting season so mom wouldn't let us out for any period of time cause of all the hunters and she was afraid of stray bullets. So we hung out with mom in the cabin watching TV. Dad was hunting all day, but didn't have any luck.

Sunday we left early afternoon and in a hurry too cause it started snowing really heavy and mom doesn't like to drive in it. Fortunately we made it home okay before it got really bad. I LOVE the snow and to play in it. Mom let us out for a little to play and then she threw the frisbee for us too which was fun. But it wasn't for very long cause mom got cold and she was also worried about me sliding and hurting my hip. You know, I'm really starting to NOT like my hips cause they take all the fun away:(

Today when we went out to potty it was very icy so we were extra careful walking. Poor mom had to get down our steep driveway and I didn't hear a crash so I assume she made it down without running into our neighbor's house. You laugh, but that happened before. Our jeep was in the driveway and the brake popped and the jeep rolled down our driveway and right into our neighbor's house. I saw it all and it wasn't pretty!

I doubt we'll be doing anything tonight cause of the ice, but mom said if the weather allows, we'll have a busy night tomorrow night. I'll let you know if we get to do anything exciting.

Stay warm and stay safe!

 

No deer

Well so far our daddy didn't get any deer. He saw a bunch of doe and hopefully they will be around next week when he can hunt them, but as of now, now deer meat for us:(

This week so far we went to Country Meadows for a visit and it was a nice one. We were in the main area for a while because a few people sat down and talked with us. Of course Echo had to show off and play the piano and do a bunch of tricks and she gets lots of treats for doing it. But the joke is on her cause I don't have to do anything and I get treats too!

Other than visiting Country Meadows, we haven't done much. Mom throws frisbee for us after work, but it gets dark soon after she gets home so then we're back in the house. I really don't mind much though cause my hip has been bothering me and when I play I go all out, but then I pay for it later in the night. Speaking of night, I've been sleeping on dad's side of the bed while he's at deer camp and I'm loving it! It sure is a lot better than sleeping on the floor that's for sure.

Well, that's about all I have for now. I hope any of my pals affected by this wild weather are nice and cozy in their homes, but still get to go out and play too!

 

Good luck hunters!

Saturday as promised, we went for a kubota ride. We didn't stay in the woods long cause of hunting season, but it was fun to go for a ride and mom let us walk back down and that was fun too cause I like sniffing everything on the way:) We did play frisbee for a little and then we went antiquing again with mom and dad. I don't mind even if I have to wait in the car for a little cause it's nice to go for rides:) The rest of the evening we just relaxed and kept nice and warm in the cabin.

Sunday we saw 4 doe and a buck right out in the field where we play. It was really cool and mom said she is always so proud of us dogs for watching the deer and never running after them. Us animals had to head back home in the afternoon since mom had to work Monday, but dad stayed and I wish I could have stayed with him, but his buddies were coming to hunt and they'd be in the woods all day anyway so I guess going home with mom was better.

When we got home mom unpacked then we went to the barn with her. It was cold, but I didn't mind and Echo and I had fun running around chasing each other. We did help mom bring the horses in and got them fed and settled in for the night. When we got home we all cuddled up in bed and watched TV. since dad isn't home right now I get his spot on the bed and I love it! Don't get me wrong I miss my dad and I love when he's home with us, but when he's not, I do take advantage of grabbing his spot in bed:)

Tomorrow night we're going to Country Meadows and we haven't been there since Halloween so I know everyone will be happy to see us. Thursday Poppy Waple has his heart surgery so please say a prayer for him that everything goes well.

That's about all I have for now. I'll be sure to let you know if anything new or exciting happens. Good luck to all the hunters out there!

 

Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

Wow! Everyone must have been on the site yesterday giving the free gifts and it crashed! At least that's what mom thinks cuz when she signed in she couldn't give gifts or post, so sorry for not sending any gifts for Thanksgiving to all my generous pals who sent them to me. Thank you all so much and I promise to return the love next time...if it doesn't happen again.

Ok now to my happenings. Tuesday we went to Manor Care and we had a good time. It was Roy's 90th birthday so we wore our party hats, yes real party hats and I'm sure mom will post the pix to prove it. We had balloons, cake and everything and it was fun:). Mom's friend Barb went with us again too which is nice. We visited all our friends and it was nice to see Joe and his wife in the rec area. Joe is doing so much better now that his wife is on the same floor and I'm so happy:D

Wednesday mom was busy shopping and running errands after work so we didn't do much, but that changed on Thanksgiving. After mom got home from her Thanksgiving dinner we headed to the mountains and I was sooooooooooo happy!! It has been a month since we went and I missed it. We didn't get there until after dark but I didn't care cuz I was just happy to be there. Dad came up a few hours later.

Today was really cold but we played outside for a while anyway. Then we went antiquing with mom and dad. They found a couple good things. We did take a little walk with mom to throw out some food for the critters. I was all wound up and it was a little icy cuz they had snow so mom made me stop running so my hip didn't slip out again. This stupid hip takes away all my fun:(. Anyway, mom said tomorrow we'll go for a kubota ride but can't stay in the woods long cuz hunting season starts Monday and dad doesn't want us disturbing the deer so I guess no fun in the woods for a couple weeks. Oh we'll at least I'm in the mountains and that's what matters most!

 

Again!

Can you believe it? Dogster picked me the other day as DDP! I don't know what I've done to deserve this honor once again, especially since nothing has been happening worth me posting. Bur regardless, thank you Dogster!

So as you could see by my lack of posting, nothing has been happening around here. Dad is working a lot of hours for the outage and mom is crazy busy with trying to get work done around the house and also doing Christmas stuff. She's making calendars of us for our friends at the nursing homes so that takes a lot of time looking for the pictures. That's pretty much what she's been doing in all her down time. I like Christmas, but it does take up a lot of mom's time. I know we're all wound tight too cause we haven't been to the cabin in almost a month and that is unheard of! We all need that time away and I can't wait to go next week!!!

 

DDP 2x!

Poor mom has been so busy the past few days she totally missed that I was picked as DDP for 2 out of 4 days. WOW! Now that is quite the honor and I thank Dogster from the bottom of my heart. I don't know what story I told to deserve such and honor, but I greatly appreciate it:)

I wish I had some good story to follow up my DDP with, but unfortunately mom has been really busy with search and rescue training the past few days us dogs haven't done much. She did walk us when she came home on Saturday and yesterday she played a little frisbee, but other than that, I've just been chilling. I did cuddle with mom last evening to watch a movie and I did really enjoy doing that.

I don't think we have a whole lot going on this week either. We may make a visit to Country Meadows depending on how the week goes. Mom did promise that we WILL be going to the mountains soon and I can't wait!!!!! That time can't come fast enough!

Our thoughts are with all those affected by the severe weather that has been going on recently. Please say a prayer for them all.

 

Visit with Emilie

November 11th 2013 9:40 am
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

Saturday we went with mom and dad to see Ali, Jan and Emilie. I was really happy that we got to go along because it's been a long time since we saw them. Mom said all Emilie kept asking about is for her to bring us "hunds" along. That's what Emi calls us and that means dogs in German. Yes, our Emilie can speak 2 languages already!

When we got there Emilie was napping, but as soon as she got up, she came outside to play with us. She threw the ball and frisbee for us and we had a lot of fun:) We played for a while, but then it got colder so we all went inside. Us dogs had to hang out downstairs as usual and it was driving us crazy this time though cause the neighbors came over and I knew there were a bunch of kids playing upstairs and I wanted to play too. Even though we didn't get to play with the kids, mom did let us sleep in the bedroom this time which is a first. We were on our very best behavior so we would be allowed to sleep in there again.

Sunday we played with Emilie some more in the morning and then we headed home after lunch. I had such a good time playing with Emi and I can't wait til we go again. Mom said Emi will be staying with us for a whole week in December and I can't wait! BTW, I know mom took some pix and I'm sure she'll post them as soon as she gets a chance so keep your eye out for them.

I'm not sure what is going on this week. I know we will be going to Manor Care at some point cause it's Sara's birthday and mom wouldn't miss that. I don't think we're going anywhere this weekend cause mom has her map and grid training all weekend for search and rescue so I guess we'll just chill at home. And "chill" seems to be what we will do too cause they are calling for some pretty cold weather coming our way. Thank goodness I have a heavy coat!

Can you believe I am a DDP today? I know I can't, but I am honored that Dogster thinks enough of me to grant me a DDP. Yesterday Echo had the honor and now today it's me. I guess they really like our stories and I'll do my best to keep them coming. THANK YOU Dogster!!
