Mom's new job...sort of.

Hello to all our furry and not-so-furry friends! It's me, Patches! No, that isn't us in the picture above, although we do have the same standy-uppy ears! It's a picture that our hooman cousin, Jennifer, pee-mailed to our mom. Above the picture, it said, "Spring is on the way...we can see the deer moving around." It doesn't look like they are moving too fast! We just wanted to share it because we thought it was funny. We're wondering if they live near Butchy and Snickers!
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!
Patches (and Poppy & Penny too)

Those deers look like they are swimming!

I am SUPER happy about your new collar. I also, just got a new collar too. John was worried about the old one choking me cuz I am gettin all big now. Mines is red. I love the color and boy it makes me look snappy!

Hope the new job works out and she sells lots of stuffs. Any Bully Sticks in there?

that is a funny photo of those deers.

that's so cool about your mom having her own store. we didn't know about her ebay store either. we have seen her wheelies around on other blogs and we saw that she made a poodle wheelie for Baylee, the little poodle on Scruffy & Lacie & and BabyStan's bloggy. does your mom have any poodle wheelies on her ebay store? we would like a neato poodle wheely - well, our mom would. cool!


Rambo said...

that's a cute picture! The snow is so deep, yet they still plough right through. Funny.
We heard your Poppy was not feeling well and are happy to hear he is doing better. Thank Dog.

Noah the Airedale said...

G'day Patches,
We hope your mum has much success with the stall she sets up. It will be fun for her to have Auntie Wendy there too.
The photo of the deer in the snow is amazing.

That picture of deers is great! At the moment we don't have so much snow. We would like to have so much snow, this winter is no a good winter here.
By the way my Jane is so excited about your mom's antique shop!! Good luck with that!!

Lots of kerrykisses all of you Jade

Dexter said...

I hope that booth works out for your mom.

Maybe she should take one of you gals along to help her guard her stuff and to attract buyers. Who could resist your aire-faces?

Those bambis are either really short or they come from a place with more snow than I want to think about.


Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh more good wishes to your dad coming to him from over here!

My J was interested in your post too because for a long time she used to have a table at an Antiques Mall, selling stuff, many years ago now, she says the bottom has dropped out of the market.

I have never seen a market with no bottom, so I cannot comment.

But we want to wish your Mum all the very best with her new venture.

love and antique licks, Marvin and also love from Jeannie the Ex Antique Dealer ;0))))))) Who is not rich at all!!

Joe Stains said...

omdog Mom totally collects all that old Pyrex stuff and is forever going to those antique malls, she LOVES them. Good luck to your Mom!!

I'm making new friends this Sunday and had to come see you, cause you came to visit me a week or two ago! I also have an award for you and hope you visit again to check it out! Hint: it has to do with friendship!
Happy Sunday -

And, while you're giving out goob smooches, give some to your dad. We hope he's feeling better and better.

About that mud, my girl just told me she's glad there is only 2 of us when it gets muddy here. I bet your kitchen is COVERED in the stuff!

Goober love & smooches,

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real money.
It gets down to select a correct companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
