Here We Go Again…

Ma’s hiding under the covers, so I’m serving as my own personal assistant. Geez! I’m a diva!!! I use papers – I don’t do paperwork!!! But, I figure folks might want to know what’s going on with us. A lot of you know about Ma having Lyme’s Disease and arthritis, but she’s also got scoliosis, and, whew boy, it’s been giving her troubles. So her veterinarian…what’s that? Oh, yeah…her doctor (Go bury your head, Ma. I’ve got this) prescribed physical therapy. Ma say’s there’s not much that’s therapeutic, though it is physical. She hobbles off in the morning 3 times a week and crawls into the house a few hours later. After spending a long time curled into a ball, she does some drawing or painting then takes care of Old Lady Nana and the housework. Let me tell you, by the time she gets to her emails and blog stuff it’s late, then Ma falls asleep with the computer balanced on her lap. I have to poke her with my nose and bark to get any attention.

Anyway, we hope you will understand if we don’t get around to responding to your comments or visiting your blogs until Ma works the kinks out of her back…er, schedule. In the meantime, here are a few puppy photos to charm and amuse you:



Golden Retriever: Rupee

Pit Bull: Rileigh

Mini Pin: Jazzy

Black Mutt: Me!

This was my last Puppy Club at Pet Valu. At 10 months, I’ve aged out of the club. Sigh…oh, well, there’s always the dog park!

    Oh I’m so sorry to hear of all the pain your mom is suffering through! I had Lyme Disease for a little while but we caught it early and got rid of it. I can’t imagine going through that with the other things she has too, though. Tell mom we hope she feels better and stronger soon!
    PS~ What fun photos! I’m sure you’ll meet lots of new friends at the dog park! 🙂
