Hi friends,

Mommy got some bad news this morning, one of her cousins died yesterday after having been sick with Alzheimer's for a very long time and she was Mommy's age, only 61. Mommy spends one hour every morning before she goes to work reading & leaving comments on blogs and the first one she went to us Khyra's and read the fantastic news that Laksa was found. After the last week, she thought "Thank you God" finally some good news. Then she got the call from her sister. Mommy was not prepared for this and to make matters worse her Mom died 23 years ago tomorrow. So Mommy has been crying again for her cousin and her Mom. This year we have already had 4 deaths in the family and we are running out of family both human, kitties and doggies. Mommy wasn't gonna do a post tonight but when she got home there was a e-mail from some new friends we just met that didn't get a sleepy picture in on time. They are Corgis like Moxie and Izzie. So Mommy decided to post the pic they sent and one of the Corgi girls.

The girls haven't posted since May so Mommy hopes they are OK." They were my first Corgi friends and now I gots some more. How cool us that!!!

Moxie and Izzie


We haven't had a chance to visit my new friend's blog much yet because they just came by to visit yesterday. Thanks, Mango *the Mastiff* for sending them over!!!
Please go over and check my new friends out. They gots horses too!!!


I am not every happy because Mommy isn't very happy. Don't I look unhappy. Not my usual smiley face.

It has been very, very hot here in Houston and Mommy says we can't stay out very long, so we have been only going out for me to do my business after Mommy gets home. But today a got a quick roach in. I've gotta get my exercise somehow.

Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all.......Mona

To Mona's Mom, I am so sorry about your loss, I will say a prayer for you. Anne

Mona, I love your pictures, but especially the video, I love to roll in the grass like that. Sometimes I get stinky and my Mom makes me take a bath. When my Mom is sad I can't smile either, take care of her and give her huggies.

licks and sniffs, Sasha
