Mommy's almost back!!

6 days until Christmas

"God bless them everyone" -- Tiny Tim from a Christmas Carol

Hi friends,

She's back!! Yep that's my Mommy doing what she does best....EAT!!

Mommy felt much better yesterday, about 85%. so she decided we needed something to do, so she decided what she needed was a doggie fix.....a George fix to be exact. So off we went to Aunt Judy's. We are still here actally, using Judy's computer cause I think Mommy killed our computer. This morning she couldn't get it to power up. I guess we'll find out tonight after we get home, so this might be our last post for awhile.

So here goes. My first dachsie play date in a while. Long overdue I'd say. You know. of course, that the first thing Mommy did was get her George fix.


Since it's been awhile since you have seen me here I am.

I'm guarding the ball, I stole from Brooklyn. She has tons of then, so it's only fair that she shares but Mommy said I can't take it home.

Before we get on to the day's excitement of the day, we gotta show you the new kissing booth that DROH had made. It is very sturdy and still needs to be painted and decorated but it is gonna be fantastic!!!

Here are Brooklyn, Bandit and George lined up waiting for Aunt Judy. She can't get out of their sight without being worried she won't come back. Very understandable........I do the same thing with my Mommy too.

Harley, on the alert.

"What is it? What's everybody looking at"

"Hey Mona!! Looks what's in that tree!!

"OMD....Squirrels!!!! Lots and lots of squirrels!!

"Oh my dog!! They're everywhere!! Hundreds of them, no thousands."

Mommy here....It wasn't quite a hundred but Judy & I counted around 10 or more. We were sitting in the backyard when Brooklyn went ballistic. Remember at Thanksgiving she killed and was eating a squirrel. Well I think she had a taste of blood then and wanted more, cause as soon as she saw a squirrel she tried to climb the fence. We watched them for over an hour, jumping from limb to limb. Judy thinks the rodents were teasing the dogs but they need to watch out because Brooklyn is determined to catch another one.

It has been a wonderful restful day. It is very comfortable here, almost like being at home. I have gotten in lots of cuddling with George, took a nap and we went to lunch at T-Bone Toms in Kemah. If you've ever watched Drive ins, Diners and Dives on the Food Network, you might recognize the place. It was spotlighted on the show November 23rd.

Mommy has been eating almost nothing much but soup in the last three weeks so she wanted meat so she had a big old rib-eye steak. I guess it was yummy...but then who would I know....yep none for any of us doggies. In case your wondering, that's bread pudding she and Judy shared.

Mommy and I would like to thank everybody for the kind words from all of you and yes I took really good care of her. Keep your fingers crossed she gets 100% well by Christmas.

Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}}.....Mona & Mommy too!!

Hey this is Frankie Furter, following Frankie Mae... That's really funny.
I L O V E the Kissing Booth. It will make a real grrrreat event even more special.
See Mona, I just KNEW that you would be able to get your mom back to feeling grrrreat again. Nurse Mona, you did a good job. I am sooo glad that she is better.
That is sure a lot of squirrels. I don't think I would like that much. You all did a grrreat job of keeping them up there where they belong though.

Woos, the OP Pack
