Poppy has been spending a lot of time checking on the plants that have been brought inside for the winter. We have a Bougainvilla that has lost all of it's pretty flowers and leaves, a ginormous Jade plant and a Squirrel Foot Fern! There are leaves and flowers all over the floor! Mom keeps cleaning them up, but they keep coming back. When the plants finally quit shedding, they will be moved to their usual wintertime places.
Here's a rare picture of me and Penny! Pay no attention to the Aire-art on the dishwasher and the coolerator. Our mom keeps cleaning it off, but it keeps magically reappearing!
Our mom keeps trying to get a picture of us playing bitey-face, but so far, this is as close as she has come! Poppy and I always seem to have somedog else's legs or face in our mouths. Penny was joining in with us, but as soon as she heard the camera turn on, she disappeared!
This is where Pokey sleeps when Mom is cleaning the living room floor. This morning, he had to get up there because Robbie the Roomba was cleaning all the Aire-hair and stuffie guts off the floor.
This is our Christmas cactus that spends the summer outside. It's blooming waaaaaay before Christmas. Jeeze, it isn't even Thanksgiving yet! At this rate, it will be all done blooming before the holidays even get here.
On Tuesday, Poppy went to the v-e-t to get an estimate for removing her lipoma. She was a very good girl at the vet's office, but she refused to get back into the Aire-mobile when they were all done. Mom had to pick her up and put her into the back. Even though Poppy has lost almost 4 pounds since her last vet visit, our mom really hurt her back! She says she isn't going to the vet with anydog alone again! Poppy is going to have to wait until our mom gets a job to have that lipoma removed. The vet said it really doesn't need to come off, but Mom wants it GONE! So....Poppy gets to wait on the lipoma surgery unless our mom wins the lottery or something!
Yesterday, our mom and Aunt Wendy spent the whole day together and when Mom came home, we sniffed her from head to toe. Not only did she smell like Ezzy and Jagger, but she also smelled like some strange doggie and even a kitty! She said that was because they went to some Humane Society and several doggie boutiques. She could have at least taken ME with her! I sure hope she bought us some Christmas presents from those doggie stores!
Well, everybuddy, I guess I'm going to do some serious napping now. It's raining here, today and none of us want to go outside at all, so we will nap in between our zoomie and bitey-face sessions.
Patches (and Poppy & Penny too)
