Hi there friends,
Sorry it's been so long since my last post but it's all the Mommy's fault. The old girl just isn't what she used to be. That old man 'Arthur-ri-tus' just won't leave her alone. The change in the weather hasn't made it any better. Her old bones get to creaking when it's cold and her knee hurts all the time. But guess what? She only has to work Monday and Tuesday, and the be off the rest of the week. The hospital decided to close the Business Office. Something about low census. Whatever!! All I know is that Mommy will be off for 5 whole days with me. Awesome!!
Before I go on the Part 2 of Baby Girl's visit, I got some things to tell you about.
#1. I mentioned in Part 1 of Baby Girl's Visit, that Mommy almost burnt the house down, and me and Baby Girl could have got FRIED. Thank goodness, she took us everywhere she went, so we weren't home, when it happened. Mommy doesn't cook very much, just because she's lazy and doesn't want to cook just for herself. Saturday, since we wasn't going anywhere, she decided to bake some stuffed chicken breasts, with cheese and ham, and some pork chops. So she turned the oven on 400 degrees, at 4:00 pm, like the recipe called for and when they were done she took them out and went along her merry little way. Monday evening, after we dropped Baby Girl off back home, it was very hot in the house, even though the heater wasn't on. Mommy went to the kitchen and it was hotter in there. She had left the oven on from 4:00 pm Saturday until 7:00 pm Monday night!! Yep, me and Baby Girl could have fried. Mommy cried and cried about what could have happened. I forgave her, because she will be punished enough when the next gas bill comes in.
#2. Mommy lent her camera to one of the associates on the GEM committee and when she got it back it said "images right protected" and couldn't figure out how to fix it. So no pictures of Shelby from her visit with her this last Thursday or of my visit to De Briles for my yearly exam yesterday. You know the woman has to take pictures of everything. So while she was loading the pictures for this post, she started messing with the camera. Don't ask her what she did, cause she sure don't know, but it's working again.
#3. My yearly physical went really well except for one thing. Since my oncologist had taken my blood on Monday, they didn't have to steal any more of my blood since they went ahead and did a heart worm test too. I did have to have 2 shots. For those of you that get the Bordetella Vaccination that they squirt in your nose, they now have one that is good for a whole year BUT it's now a shot and it HURTS!! Remember back in July, after the Reliant Dog Show, that I started limping and Dr Briles gave me Rimadyl 25m for a mild case of arthritis. Well I can't make fun of Mommy anymore, cause Old Man Arthur-ri-tus, has settled in my back knees and won't go away, so I can't jump as much as I want. Mommy says she don't care if I ever jump again, but it's no fun being tied to the ground.
Okee, Dokee....now we're all caught up, so on with Part 2 of Baby's Girl's Visit.
Of course, I had to help Mommy drive to to my Cancer doctor. If I'd known that's were we was going, I'd have kept driving but no such luck.
Me and Baby Girl waiting for them to come get me.
Baby girl waiting with Mommy. I didn't want her to go naked so I let her borrow my "flirty" outfit.
Let me tell you that, that girl was working her stuff cause it sure was tight.
Ok, I'm through!1 Let's get out of here while the gettings good.
As previously reported, I am still cancer free.
Monday after my doctor appointment:We went straight over to Aunt Judy's after my doctor appointment, so Baby Girl could play with my friends and Mommy could get her Georgie fix. What would a trip to Aunt Judy's be without seeing some gorgeous flowers? During the Spring we posted pictures of a tiny little plant with yellow blooms, well this is it now. All grown up!
As if you could ever forget them. Here are my friends, again.
BANDIT AND HARLEY
and of course,
Here we all are clustered around Aunt Judy.
Mommy, Aunt Judy and Uncle Raymond ate lunch. They had hamburgers, tater tots and malts from Sonic and we got nothing, zilch, zero BUT Aunt Judy shared what left at the bottom with us.
Then we went outside to play and hang out. Aunt Judy's yard is so pretty and full of great things so here are some of them along with us pups.
That's Harley in mid hop.
Don't know what was in this plant but we all of us took turns sniffing on it.
Time for a snack, so we all followed Aunt Judy into the house.
OOPS....we forgot Baby Girl. She was sleeping sitting up on the patio deck.
Guests first!! Aunt Judy says I'm not a guest, I'm family. Isn't that sweet!!
Some more playtime with some stuffies:
The following picture is a bit naughty and might not SHOULD be viewed by younger puppies.
Bandit has a little crush on me and won't leave me alone. He's been fixed but Aunt Judy and Mommy say he just can't resist my charms. I been fixed too, so what is he's problem.
After I gave Bandit a little nip to his nose, Mommy said it was time to go.
Me saying goodbye....
Bandit was so jealous, he tried to keep me from kissing his Mom.
Then we took Baby Girl home. It sure was nice having my BFF around for a few days.
One last thing before we close. Tomorrow is Shelby's big day. She starts her heart worm treatments. We know that all of you have sweet Miss Shelby in your hearts but tomorrow she needs all the extra prayers she can get. We pray that she will be strong enough.
