Sick As A Dog

I heard mom telling someone on the phone yesterday that she was "sick as a dog". I wonder what that means exactly. I can't remember ever being sick. And unlike Banjo, I did not even feel bad when I got my shots from the vet. Sometimes I eat something that doesn't agree with me but I just puke it up and I'm fine. Mom has been moping around the house for two days now. I wish she would get better so we can play outdoors or take a walk or go for a ride in the truck.

Since I have a list of my ten favorite things that make me happy, I thought I would also make a list of ten things that make me unhappy.

1. being cold
2. being hungry
3. not getting to sleep in bed with mom
4. a day without a bully stick
5. rain, snow, anything that keeps me indoors
6. strange, loud noises
7. the squirrel teasing me
8. sharing my tennis ball with Banjo
9. an empty treat jar
10. my tennis ball being stuck under the furniture

Mom came looking for us awhile ago and found me and baby brother hanging out in the kennel. She promised to take us somewhere fun tomorrow if the weather was nice.

Hi, Bijou!
I am so sorry your mom is not feeling better yet! I still have my paws crossed for her!
All those are good reasons to be unhappy!
Kisses and hugs

Aww Bijou, I'm sorry your mom isn't feeling well. You should give her lots of licks until she feels better!

Sniffs and licks,

You look so cozy in your kennel together! It is nice to have a sibling to cuddle with, I think.

Oh mom is feeling better but the weather is not good. Wet and windy and cold, so we have to stay inside again today.

Hi everyone. Mom is doing a little better each day. She is suffering with one of those late winter colds that has her barking like a dog. BOL

Sorry Martha and Bailey but I can't seem to post on your blog. The word verification thingy won't load for me.

Wags & wiggles,
