Our teefies are all clean!

Hi,everybuddy! It's me, Patches! Penny and I both have really clean teefies now. See my pearly whites? On Tuesday, Penny got all her staples out and it's a good thing she had a v-e-t appointment because she was having a problem with one of her feetses. When she was only about a year old, our pawrents were putting the wood floor in our kitchen. The old floor had been removed exposing only the wood sub-floor. Well, there were some gaps in it and Penny got a toenail stuck. She pulled so hard, to get free, that the whole toenail came off. Because of that unfortunate incident, that toenail has never grown back correctly. It either turns to the side, or it disappears completely.

On Monday night, Mom noticed that Penny was limping so she set out to find out why. Well, her toe was all red and hairless! The vet shaved off the rest of her furs on that toe and cut the toenail back to nothing. She's on ant-eye-bioticks and she has to have some spray put on her foot three times a day. It's already looking much better and she isn't even going to have to wear the cone of shame because she's leaving it alone. Yay for Penny!

This is a picture that Aunt Wendy took of one of our mom's Peonies. Isn't it pretty? It's called Parfait "something or other". Aunt Wendy was here for our dad's memorial.

Not a lot of people came, on Saturday, but that's okay. It was very nice anyway and some very impawtant peeps in our lives did come. We saw Aunt Wendy and Unkle Bill, Mack and Sally Ann's mommy and our dad's best friend and his wife. It meant a whole lot to our mom to have these peeps come and see us. We also got some beautiful flowers from Scruffy, Lacie, Stanley and Mumsie. Sorry we don't have a picture...our mom just plain forgot to take one. We also got some pretty flowers from the Airedale Rescue Group. Again, sorry there's no picture. We really need to get our mom back with the program!

Well, everybuddy, I guess that's about it for today. Penny and I will be home alone for a while 'cause our mom is running away with Aunt Wendy again. She says they won't be gone a really long time. We'll SEE about that! I guess it's okay as long as she comes home before it's time for us to EAT!

Patches and Penny

Oh Patches, you have such beautiful teeth! And what a pretty flower! Our Mummy tried to remember the name of those flowers once and I wouldn't come to her for 2 days - she's getting OLD!
We're very glad that Penny's foot is getting better too. Good job you didn't post a picture of that 'cos our Mum faints.
We're glad you had such lovely company on Saturday. We thought about you too.

What a BEAUTIFUL SMILE - and those teethies are soo clean and white...

It's not about the number who came it's about the folks who loved your Dad and those are the important ones... But your Dad was smiling watching all of you....

Pretty flower...Have fun while Mum's out.....


Inky and Molly said...

Wouldcha look at those sparklers?! Wowsey, they sure are bright and shiny.

Poor Penny, as if she hasn't been already been in enough discomfort.
We hope that her back and toe heal up real quick.

We just got back from some time away (peeps call it holidays) and read up on the surgery. Pinkie had staples once because the doctors scoope around her arm so much to take something out there wasn't much left to close the wound with.
Apparently it's survivable but that area needs to be kept still. Is that possible??

We hope all goes well.

Love, I & M

Your Mommy made the most amazing food. Mommy shared a bit with us, and we loved it.

Well. We're finally beginning to read and catch up. We convinced Moma to start at the beginning of May with our bloggiefriends. She remembers (believe it or not) reading this post, and loving that pretty pee oh knee and thinking about your papa's memorial. But we reminded her that she never commented. That doesn't mean she and we haven't been thinking aboutcha, though. We have. And we are hoping it still works out that we get to meet in late July. We're thinking July 24. That's the day we'll probably leave PCB and head to Atlanta town. Did we tell you our relatives live in Buford? Or maybe that's Flowery Branch. Anyhow ... we're hoping we can make it work out to sniff ya!

On to more reading and more catching up,
Jake and Fergs (and Family)
