Mr. Sun is in the House

April 5th 2014 7:03 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

What a beautiful morning. The Sun is shining in the office and Priscilla and I are basking in it's rays in our new beds.

Oh yeah. Mom bought us each a new bed. I've had a small bed for years (turns out it was a cat's bed - what were you thinking Mom?) that sits on Mom's bed in the corner and all of a sudden about a month ago Priscilla had the audacity to start using it. Can you believe the nerve of her. So Mom decided to get us each a larger bed. So now both of our beds are on top of Mom's bed with snuggly blankets on top. It is heaven.

At bedtime Mom puts our beds in the kitchen and we snuggle under the covers with Mom in her bed. Mom says she feels like an Oreo sandwiched between the two of us. But she wouldn't have it any other way. We sleep in a twin bed so it is cozy but just big enough for the three of us. Mom's bed is in her office in a sunny part of the house and only a twin bed will fit in there. The real bedroom is now Mom's sewing room. We enjoy that room during the day when the sun moves.

Mom did say she can't wait for warmer weather so we can have a bath. Is that a polite way to say we stink Mom? We tolerate baths but we don't like them. Mom is devious, she suddenly picks one of us up, puts us in the bathtub with her and shuts the glass door. We are trapped. But the torment doesn't last long and we come out smelling a whole lot better.

Should be 40 degrees today, hopefully it will melt more of that 9.5 inches of snow Mother Nature gifted us with on Thursday night. Mom shoveled the paths and city sidewalk but refuses to do the driveway. She says enough is enough and as long as she had a three day weekend she is waiting for it to melt, she doesn't really need to go anywhere until Monday. It's been a horrible winter but I think the end is near.

Enjoy your sunbeams my friends.


I Promise Not To Get the Big Head

All I can say is Wowser! Dogster made me a Diary Pick - twice this month. This has to mean I get more treats. Are you reading this Mom?

My handsome face on the community page is bound to make the ladies wild.

Darn! Mom has to work today. She usually takes Fridays as vacation but this is her busy time of year so we only get her on the weekends. We will just have to enjoy the weekend. Mom calls me Velcro because I follow her around all the time. Who doesn't love their Mom?

So enjoy the day my friends. Our friend Jim in North Carolina is waking up to 24 degrees to warm up to 70's. Crazy weather.



Diary Pick - Yipeeee

Yay, Dogster in their infinite wisdom has once again honored me for my gift of gab. How do I do it? All kidding aside, I'm very humble. And Mom says if you buy that she has a bridge you can buy.

We've been having a heat wave 20 degrees. But not so warm with no sun today and that wind. Yowser. But Mom is promising us that the weekend promises a 40. Then we get to go on pooty patrol or shall I say Mom gets to have all that fun. Would love to pitch in Mom - but sorry no thumbs.

Mom almost sat on me tonight, I would have been smushed. My fault I was hiding in blankets. And my dear sister Priscilla was sitting close by watching it all happen and gave no warning. That girl is devious. She probably thought if I got smushed more food for her. Luckily I made some movement before Mom sat down.

Well better go check to see if Mom wants to play ball with me. Later friends.


Mom Is A Trickster

Mom took the day off. We've been hanging with her all day. Mom took my small red rubber wiffle ball and but it inside the large blue one. Hey no fair Mom. I don't have thumbs. But I gave it a good try. She eventually took pity on me and got it halfway out so I could get it free. Now I'm hiding it. I don't know what she was thinking.

Mom is draining sometimes. Priscilla and I finally pooped out and we are heading off for naps. Don't tell Mom I'm hiding under the blankets. I guess Mom doesn't realize we sleep most of the day. Priscilla needs her beauty sleep and I need to recharge.

Just give me an hour Mom and I'll be your littler energizer bunny once again.

Life is good.


I'm In Heaven

What a fun day. So many valentines, like being in heaven. I'm sure I've missed someone. So everyone please know that you hold a special place in my heart.

Mom sent my photo to someone in Arizona today and she said "I was more than precious". Now don't get me wrong, I love being adorable but what does "more than precious" do to my macho image.

Happy days ahead - so glad our community pages are sticking around. We would have been devastated to lose all our friends.


Is It True

Mom heard a rumor that the Dogster/Catster community pages were not going to be shutting down. Can this be true? Mom is doing her happy dance (not a pretty sight).

We sure hope this will happen - Mom says losing all our friends would be like losing a village.

Can life get any better than this - and warm weather is on the way.

Oh happy day.


Smitten Again

Can I help it if I am cursed with my love of older ladies. I am smitten again. Her name is Jerry and she lives in Cyprus. Mom how far is that from Minnesota? A guy can dream.

18 below AGAIN this morning. I don't know how Mom does it. She trudges out every morning in the cold and dark and does who knows what all day. Then she returns usually in the dark, still in the cold.

Priscilla and I do the best we can to cheer her up. We send her off with a hot breakfast and when she returns we greet her warmly. Sometimes we get a little impatient with her because we feel it takes her too long to take off all her warm clothing and boots. I mean, hey Mom no one has thrown the ball to me all day. And my dear sister P demands her supper. Then Mom has to resort to picking up the squirt bottle (although we know that's a hollow threat as unbenowst to Mom we have jammed the nozzle) and says hey give me a break - let me get my boots off.

We love our Mom and just count the days until the weekend.

My friends, have a warm and happy day.



You Can See My Beautiful Mug on Facebook

Mom has no idea how to save our pictures or the easiest way to save our diary pages. Any shortcuts you know so we can save some of our stuff before Dogster shuts down? Mom copied each of my diary pages to Word - just in case I want to publish a book someday of all my thoughts. Just wondering if there's an easier way.

Mom does has a Facebook page and our faces are already on there. You will be able to find us at

Mom doesn't post much on Facebook but she said that will change by March. It won't be the same, but we're hoping we can still stay in touch with friends.

Hey guys, it is going to be 34 today - a heat wave. I am so psyched. Mom says after she runs errands we can spend some time outside today. Cylla and I are napping now so we'll be (well at least me - she's an old lady) raring to go.

Hope Mom will get her camera out.

Have a fantastic day.


Goodbye My Friends - I loved every minute

Mom just read us the sad news that the Dogster community pages are shutting down. We are devastated. We have met so many caring and compassionate souls through Dogster and Catster. We were just loving the fact that we could reach out to pups and cats and their owners all over the globe.

It kept Mom sane through the loss of 4 of her beloved faces who are now up at the Bridge that she still felt a connection to through Dogster..

Dogster we had the best time. You will be missed. You always put the kick in Mom's step.

Thank you all for being our friends - it was awesome.

We will keep up our journals right up to the end but we just wanted you all to know how much you have meant to all of us.

Our hearts are breaking.


Did You Miss Me????

I can't believe I haven't written in my diary since Thanksgiving. Where are my manners.

I'm going to go with the cold has frozen my little brain.

Just want to shout out to everyone who has sent hot chocolate our way. Helps to ward off the chill.

Mom did laundry today and we got to snuggle in the warm clothes. Good thing we don't have long hair and shed or Mom's coworkers would be picking the dog hair off her clothes all the time. Now they don't have a clue. And my friends it is heavenly to sink into that warmness.

It did warm up to 24 today. And tomorrow they are promising a big heat wave - in the 40's.

Cylla and I don't venture out too far out in the yard to do "the deed" we just squat on the sidewalk as the snow is a high as us. Mom does complain a bit about the yellow ice on the sidewalk but she totally understands.

We've heard from some of our friends and they have beautiful weather, in the 70 and 80's and even 120 from Australia. Maybe when Mom retires we can move to a warmer climate. Cylla has a harder time than me because she used to live in New Orleans.

Oh gotta run, Mom's talking about back rubs.

Happy New Year's my friends. Hope this year brings you lots of happiness.
