No breakfast AGAIN!

Hi, every buddy! It's me, Penny. Yeah, I know...the pictures are of Patches. I'm still camera shy and I especially don't want anydoggie to see the big empty patch on my back. I am doing just fine, but I have to wait until next Tuesday to get my staples out. Mom says it hurts to look at them. I guess it's better to hurt HER than ME! The tumor they removed was way larger than we thought and my vet had to really stretch my skin to close up the hole. I know that sounds pretty disgusting, but it wasn't so bad. All the peeps at the vet's office petted me and took really good care of me!

My mom tried to give me sort of a partial Aire-cut because I look pretty silly right now. Actually, I was due for my spring hAire-cut, but I had surgery instead. Now I'm going to have to look kind of silly when all the peeps come, on Saturday, for my dad's memorial. I guess I'll have to wait a couple of weeks to get groomed since I'm not allow to have a b-a-t-h! Heeheehee!

Back to why I started this post in the first place! We got NO breakfast AGAIN this morning! I was NOT amused! That little whippersnapper, aka Patches, went to get her teefies cleaned so that meant NODOGGIE got breakfast! Okay, I actually did get my breakfast, but I had to wait until Mom came home from dropping off the wild child. NOW, I suppose my dindin will be late too! Patches can't come home until after 4:00 and I'm used to eating by at least 3:00. Mom says it won't kill me, but I'm not so sure! I've already lost 16 pounds! Yeah, it took a whole year, but my arfritis is better and I can almost beat Patches to the neighbor's fence! Almost! I'm usually too dignified to run like a puppy, but I do have my moments! My v-e-t says I'm doing really well for an 11 year old Aire-girl.

Our mom has started to get stuffs ready for Saturday and she's supposed to be cleaning the house, but right now I think we're going to nap. Mom's been on ant-eye-bio-ticks for 13 days for a major sinus infection and she keeps saying she feels like crap. I don't know what crap feels like, but I'm pretty sure it is really, really tired. Mom's only got one more day of those awful pills and I sure hope she stops feeling like crap pretty soon!

Well, everydoggie, we're off to have that nap and I'm going to enjoy my day of being the only dog! (Not really, but I do have to keep up my reputation of being the only dignified doggie in da house.)

Penny (and the whippersnapper with clean teefies too)

Penny! You sound like the bionic doggie! I bet you look just fine. You can pull off any look. Such a sweetie.

Oh poor mom. Saturday is an important day. I hope she is feeling better. We don't have words for how it must be to not have your dad. I hope that the service on Saturday helps mom have happy thoughts.

Penny (and whippersnapper)

Good to hear that you are feeling better after your surgery. Hope your mom recovers...do whatever you can to help her, and if that means sleeping on top of her so she will take naps, DO IT!


Sunshade said...

Ah oh... late breakie and late din din?? I'm happy your healing well Penny, my stitches are doing good too. Hehe I look pretty ridiculous too with bare stomach and SHAVED fur all over, so we're in the same boat together, don't feel bad!

I hope your mom's sinus buggie clears up before Saturday, she takes such good care of you guys, you have to remind her to take good care of her okay?? (like maybe youc an eat her antibiotics for her, or eat the sinus bugs for her?)

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Hey Penny Girl - I had a surprise toofie cleaning last week too -- so I understand the no breakfast thing and that funny where I am kind of feeling.

And our mom brought home some kind of crud from her trip to Alabama, so she too feels like you know what.

We hope you and your mom and Patches will be OK for your May 1 memorial for your Dad. We know it's important to bring friends and family together to commemorate his life. We'll be thinking about you on that day -- and we hope the news about Patches is good!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Glad to read that you're better, but tell me : I read the word "bath"... an Airedale will never get in the bathtub, but only in lakes and creeks! (Except having opened the cocoa-box and being cocoa-brown from the nose to the shoulders... that was Hanni's first and only passage in the bath tub for a short shower without soap, and she's 12 years old.)

please excuse my bad english, I'm german living in France.
