Well, the green grass was short lived. Snow is on the ground again - about 3 inches and it's cold again. But the good news is that Mom just washed the flannel bed sheets and blanket. Mom has me all wrapped up in the bed sheet and Priscilla glommed on to the blanket. We are nice and toasty and ....... there's another load in the dryer for later. Can life get any better than this in Minnesota?
Kitties got a reprieve. The vet canceled their visit yesterday because she had emergency surgeries. So it's been postponed until next week. Mom was glad, she wasn't looking forward to it. So the cats will still like her this week.
This is the last day of Mom being home 5 days. It's been heaven, but we are tired. Following Mom around all day to make sure she doesn't get in trouble takes a lot out of a little guy like me.
New year is approaching fast. Mom sure hopes it will be a better year. But Mom doesn't have to worry, because when things get tough I'm always ready to lick her ear and make her feel better.

For the holiday - Mom is home for 5 days. Is that the best present ever or what. She goes to see Gammie once a day, but most of the time she's here with us. We love that she's a homebody.
Of course Santa brought me something else - because I've been such a good boy. It was a squeaky ball wrapped in felt and it looked like a bow tie. Love it. Of course when Priscilla heard that it had a squeaker in it she tried to steal it from me. That was not happening. I am tenacious about my toys. I might be smaller than her but I have the fiercest growl. I won.
And the caveat on the whole weekend is that all the snow has melted and Mom doesn't have to tell me not to eat the yellow snow, whatever that is. Can dogs even see yellow.
Mom is trying to find a home for Gammie's cats. They are 15. This is very tough on Mom because they are part of her family. But Mom says we wouldn't play nice with them so we can't cohabitate. She has tried, and tried. The cats call us Boston Terrors. So today Mom is taking them to the vet to update vaccines. She's not looking forward to that. They haven't been out of the house for 4 years. She thinks all the trust she has built up with them for the past 3 months will evaporate.
Hope all my friends had the best time over the holidays.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our friends.
Mom is strict with our diet because Priscilla has irritable bowel syndrome. But why do I have to suffer. I have to eat the same hyperallergenic diet as her. And boy is it expensive. But Mom is afraid if she gives something different to me Miss P will bowl me over and snitch some. She seems sweet, but I know she would do that. So anyway, I think Mom might slip me some chicken on the sly today. That would be heavenly.
Our Gammie fell and broke her hip two months ago and 3 weeks after that fall she fell again in rehab and broke her other hip. Couple that with her dementia and sadly she can't move back upstairs. She's now at a place that will help her heal and be safe. The bad part is we can't see her anymore. Gammie used to come down almost every day and play catch with me. I miss that. And her poor kitties. They are living upstairs by themselves until Mom can figure out the best place for them. They are both 15. Mom feeds them twice a day and spends about an hour with them every day but they are so lonely. Mom was hoping they could live with Gammie at her new place but now Mom thinks it is too small and because Gammie is still using a walker they might cause her to fall again. Mom is so sad about this. They can't come and live with us because we are home alone during the day and I think we would terrorize them. Mom has some work to do upstairs before she can rent the upstairs out again so there is still time for a miracle.
It's so cold today - 4 below and only warming up to 10 by this afternoon. Coldest Thanksgiving in Minnesota in decades. But it is sunny which is something. I see the sun and think I can go outside and run around a bit, but as soon as my tush gets cold I need to come back in.
Have a great day my friends and stay warm.
