Our weather isn't so sucky anymore!

Hi, everybuddy! It's me, Patches. FINALLY! Our weather has turned warm and we have no more snow. The snow lasted just long enough to turn our backyard into a major mud hole. Good for US, bad for MOM! She's been on mud patrol for a couple of weeks now. We could have had the door open, yesterday, so Penny and I could come and go at will, but our stoopid neighbor was burning stuffs in his back yard all day! The smoke was filling up our house and making it too stinky to have the door open. Well, today's another day and he had to go to work (haha on HIM), so we're thinking...maybe Mom will open the door so we can come and go as we please!

We're sorry we haven't been around to very many of your bloggys lately. Our personal secretary (aka Mom) has been really busy fixing our kitchen floor. She's about half way done. When she's all finished, she's going to have a teeny tiny memorial service for our dad. She finally brought his cremains home, on Friday and as soon as his urn arrives, he will watch over us from the china cabinet right next to Poppy. We are still very, very sad, but we are just taking it one day at a time.

Well, everybuddy, I'm going to go sit by the back door, now, and try to get our mom to leave it open! Oh, and thanks to everyone who wished Penny a happy birthday! She had a great day with lots of extra treats! Yeah, I got some too, but Penny's were bigger. SO not fair!

Patches (and Penny too)

So Patches, when is your birthday?

The weather is improving here too, but our yard is a mudhole and there is a lot of dirty snow around. But we saw a blue bird this morning.

We're sure glad your snow is gone. Ours is finally starting to melt and you can even see some patches of ground in a few spots. It's getting pretty sloppy. Soon it will be a mudhole here too, heheheh! Mama doesn't like the mud either.
Awwwh, we're glad your Daddy's remains are home with you now. Keep taking one day at a time. The sadness will never go away, but it will get easier to remember the happy times and smile.

Oh, it is so beautiful here too, but not quite warm enough to leave the doors open. We have rain coming in tonight but we have had three lovely days now. Mom is working hard, but tell her to take time to enjoy the pretty day too. Give her some hugs and kisses from us.

Things sound better for you girlies and your Mom. One day at a time is very good.

I'm pleased your weather is warmer. Our is cold but sunny and the daffodills are beginning to show their faces like little yellow smilies. Wish I could pick some for your Mom but in my mind I did.

Wiry love Eric xx

Your mom is very brave to do the floor all by herself. I bet it will look great for the ceremony.

Guess what? Our snow is gone too! Isn't it grand?


Lorenza said...

Take care

You are gonna get to wander in & out on your own? That is Soooooo cool. It's great to be free, yes?
We have had rain for 2 days now off and on in Phoenix and Mommy likes it because it makes it cool. We don't like it cuz they close all the dog parks for days on end.Being in a condo we don't get to go out and play in the mud. Phooey. How amazing that your mommy is doing the floor herself. She must be like SuperWoman or something.

Spring is like that...peeps gather up sticks n stuff and burn em..SHE did that today, picked up sticks, not burn em though, we had to put em in the trash can for recyle pickup. The other spring thingy is MUD! Lovely, joyous, roll all over in it MUD! Squishy in between yer feets and lovely to smear all over. sigh. Can't do that here...SHE replaced the yard with seashells...probably just cuz of that. I hope the door was opened today for sun n fun in the yard.

Hello gurrrrls!!

Tell your mom don't work so hard ok?? Maybe you guys can help with the floors too? Just go step in the mud outside and come step all over the floor, who doesn't like earthy floor right???

I am happy that your daddy is coming home soon and together with Poppy, they'll be watching over you. I like the sound of that, because I know things will get better for all of you gurrrrls if your guardian angels are watching and protecting you!!

Love you guys lots, and again, tell your mom to take it easy...don't know how she does it...so strong..

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

William Tell said...

Our computer has been hogged lately (tax season, you know), and I haven't kept up with my favorite bloggies like I want to, so I was very sad to see that your Dad passed away. I have been thinking about you and wondering how he's been and kicking myself for not checking sooner. Please know you and your family has been in my thoughts, though, and we send hugs your way.

What's with humans and mud patrol? Don't they know that we dogs love playing with mud? The last time I had a mud facial, my humans gave me a bath...sigh!

Anonymous said...


I think humans like us doggies looking like fat bubbleheads. I mean, did you see the Westminster show with those Poodles?? They had bubbleheads and bubbletails and even bubblelegs!! OHMY!!!

Anyway, I wouldn't worry about yourMa going away for a while. It gives you a chance to get into some much needed mischief!!

xox, Autumn
