I tried to play dumb and distance myself from the evidence.
But Fig and Tad weren't here, and the only other cohort in crime could have been the boy. But Motch didn't think he'd entertain himself ripping my toy; his idea of entertainment is battling it out in some war game on the computer.
So I confessed because I've been told that confession is good for the soul.

So do you think she'll buy me another one?

figgy fun

Last night my niece and nephew came to see me and when I asked if they wanted to play, Fig said yes and Tad walked away.
Fig is bigger and stronger than me, but she's smart and knows how to play even.
Sometimes she just stands and braces herself and I twist back and forth with the rag in my mouth. Other times she shakes her head and sends me flying!
This niece of mine makes me feel good all over, and I love her alot.

monday morning blahs

Aren't mornings the worst?!

It takes awhile to get going.

I'm sad to report that I have been denied the privilege of going to visit my grandpa. I've been told that he sleeps most of the time and sometimes barely wakes up to eat, so Motch is afraid my high energy might scare him or something.

I think she is wrong, but I can't convince her that my kisses would be useful in waking him up and making him smile.

I might just go back to bed and hide under the covers.

therapy dog

My grandpa isn't doing as well as we wish he would be. Sometimes his words don't make sense, he sleeps alot, he's very weak, he sits in a wheelchair and has a hard time feeding himself.
Maybe I should go see him in the nursing home. I could run around the wheelchairs and eat the food that falls on the floor and liven things up a bit. What do you think? Should I go for it?

love love love

Thanks so much, everybody, for your kinds words, thoughts and prayers for my granpda. He will stay in the nursing home until March 1, then he'll have to move to another one because of insurance issues. Things could be better and could be worse, so I guess things are okay with him.
Things are very okay at home because Fig and Tad have been coming to visit me. See how nice Fig is? She let me take the nylabone and chew it right next to her and didn't yell (bark) at me to go away.
And since valentine's day is just around the corner, I'm wishing you all a happy valentine's day just a little early.

And happy anniversary to Motch and PA who were married on valentine's day 33 years ago!

life's little blessings

Note from Motch: My dad has trouble sleeping at night in the hospital so we've been staying with him to try to keep him relaxed. I got home last night around 1 AM and who came bounding out to see me, her little tail wagging as much as it can for a boston, her ears way back and her little body wiggling all over? Little Miss Petra Pot Pie!She washed my face with kisses and made me smile...and it made me realize how blessed I am to have this little girl to help ease the stress when life gets hard. Can you relate?!

ups and downs

Both my grandpa and grandma visited the ER room in the hospital over the weekend.Grandma is okay but Grandpa might have to go to a nursing home because he's dizzy and can't walk. Sometimes being 90 years old slows you down a bit. Anyway, the family is very busy helping Grandma make decisions, so we may not be blogging much. Say a prayer for my grandparents, would you? Thanks everybody!
