I, Patches got a new collar for Christmas. My red hat lady collar has been retired and now, I have a shiny new Martingale collar. It is red with white stitching and every time I get my picture taken, it looks like the collar has big white dots along the edges. The stitching is actually reflective! This picture was taken right before I got my new one.
We want to tell you about our mom's new job. Okay, it isn't a REAL job, but right now, she sure feels like it is! She is going to rent a booth in a new antique mall that opened about 6 miles from our house. As most of you know, our pawrents sell stuff on Ebay. Well, unfortunately, not everything sells, so a lot of it ends up going to the Goodwill at the end of each year. Our mom figures that at least SOME of the stuff might sell in an antique mall. She has been really busy making tags for everything! She also hopes to sell some of Dad's ink pad caddies and some of her felties.
She has had booths in antique malls before, but she says the only one who made any money was the guy who owned the building. She's hoping this one will be different. The mall is much smaller than where she had booths before, so there shouldn't be so much theft. Also, the security is much better at the new place! AND if she works there, one day a month, they will reduce her rent by $40 per month. Woohoo! We think she should spend that $40 on treats for US!
Ezzy and Jagger's mom (aka Aunt Wendy) is going to help Mom with the booth and she is even going to put some of her stuff in there too. On Thursday, Mom and Aunt Wendy spent the day checking out antique malls in our area. They didn't find very many and we think it was just an excuse for them to run away for the day. They even went out to lunch and didn't bring us back even one single bite! What's up with that? Mom did bring home a lot of interesting smells on her clothes, though. She smelled just like Ezzy Rider and Jagger! We're wishing spring would hurry up and get here so all 5 of us can play in our back yard! We'll drive the neighbor dogs crazy!...and maybe the neighbor PEEPS too!
Oh, I almost forgot! Mom finally got Dad's oxygen situation straightened out. After 2 days of phone calls, she finally found someone who said they would take care of it. It took them another week to get it done, but it finally happened! Thanks to everyone who made suggestions...especially Angel LacyLuLu and Rocky's mom, Claudette!
It's raining, today, so Penny, Poppy and I are having a contest to see who can bring in the most mud. So far, I'm winning! I guess my feets are just fluffier than everydoggie else's!
