The last few days

Hi all.

It's been a little dull on my side of the pond for a few days. I've had to keep mum company a lot while she has been sickies. The couch in the lounge has been "base camp" for her, and for me too. She says she had problems with her tummy, but judging from the 87 trips to the bathroom she has had (per day) I think it might be the ...ahem.... other end. Just sayin'.

Needless to say - we have caught up on a lot of recorded TV shows, but she couldn't manage to sit up and supervise my computing and blogging. I'm tryin' to catch up on the stuff I missed.

Every day - dad dad has given me a little break from my nursing duties, and taken me out for a walk and little run. We are having such lovely weather at the moment. The real hot stuff is finished and now it's just warm and nice. We even had about 15mm of rain on Wednesday so the gardens and trees and bushes and stuff are very happy too.

The really AMAZING thing that happened while mum was "down for the count" is that she approved dad dad to do an evening cookfest in HER kitchen!! He made roast chicken with all the stuff, he even had to give me my evening meal twice!! Mum says it's good for dad dad to keep his cooking skills up - and he admitted to  feelin' rusty about it!! He did good (no fire alarms or explosions), and mum didn't have to stand up. You had my support and full-faith dad dad!

I can declare that the chicken was good! Yummers even!

But don't worry, even though we couldn't go to doggie skool today :-(  mum still did local training with me in the house. She is almost 85% better she reckons.

Now - most impawtantly - I wanted to say a personal CONGRATULATIONS to my dear furiend MAGIC from the Yoooo - Kaaay. Magic had FOUR puppies this week while I was minding mum, so I wanted to send BIG HUGS and schnauzer LICKS to her and her peeps - especially Leigh. We are all over the moon. Rest up girl. If you don't know Magic click on her name to see her bloggie and send some love her way.

Gotta go now - mum is wanting to rest again and keep her fluids up. Might mean trip number 88 is coming soon!!!! BOL!


  1. Hey Rubie!
    Wow, it's so great to see you! I'm sorry to hear about your mom's poopshooter troubles, but it sounds like she's a lot better. Great job nursing her. Dad gets an A+ for his cooking skills and for giving walkies!

  2. Hi Rubie Lou!!!! Soooo sorry to hear your moms been poorly, she didn't tell my mom that so she's sending big hugs to her. Hope that you're enjoying the nursing duties, I bet you're the most caring nurse ever. Good to keep the Popster in training too, as long as he gives you extra portions!! Thanks for the reminder about Magic, we meant to mention on the bloggie too so will go do that now. Dex and Lou xxxxxx

  19. Hi Rubie! I'm catching up too, I'm catching up on what I have missed to commenting wise! I am real sorry to hear that your Mum has been ill, maybe she needs a cork in her behind to stop the multiple trips to the toilet, thats what My Mum always jokes when she has ... ummm...... problems with her rear! Ha,Ha! I hope that you have been a good girl and that you have been a wonderful nurse! I love to take care of my Mum when she is sick, mostly because I'm lazy and just love to snuggle up to her and relax and watch some tele! I really like "Its me or the dog" and "Dog whisperer" I also love to watch any nature programmes! I bark at the tigers! Ha,Ha! Keep up the good work! Hope to hear from you soon! Glad your Dad is good in the kitchen! you will have to be his little taste tester! Ha,Ha! Love, Lick and Hugs Frank xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


I do a Big Tail Wuggle when I get your comment!!!
