She's Leaving Us

Mom is leaving us to fly to Florida to visit with our gram and gramp! She is flying out tomorrow with one of her bestest friends, Miss Donna, who just happens to be Marty the Cairn Terrier's mom! How lucky is this that they're on the same flight and sitting next to each other! Both girls are taking their knitting on the plane and they'll be chatting away happy as larks and they won't even miss us!
Gram is very excited that mom is coming and says that they'll have lots of fun together! We're sad that mom will be gone for 6 whole days!

Dad has promised us Glenwood for burgers and fries and we're going to hold him to his word!

Yesterday mom made cheesebread! One loaf for dad while she's gone and one loaf she'll take to gram! It's a surprise! shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Gram loves mom's cheesebread! See the loaf in the front that's the browner one? (Dad's loaf is gluten-free. That's why the color is so different) That one is for gram. This recipe was supposed to make two loafs and mom didn't want to bring gram a skimpy loaf so she plopped all that batter into one pan! It was running over the sides in the oven while it was baking! OOPS!

To get the loaf out of the pan mom had to cut all of the extra that ran over the sides! That's where I come in! We don't want to waste any of that homemade bread, do we, mom! So now gram will get a nice big loaf of cheesebread!Mom has decided that she's going to wait till she comes back from Florida to call the vet to make any surgery appointment for me. In the meantime, she's been applying Bag Balm to my booboo mole. She hoping that when she comes home the following Monday, I'll be all healed and she won't have to make that call! My paws are crossed!

So until next time...................

Love ya lots,

Maggie

That cheese bread looks very yummy!...with or without the gluten! We hope the bag balm does the trick! Our pawrents use it for lots of stuff. We hope your mom has safe and fun trip! And we hope you two don't cry at the door until she gets home. I, Poppy sit in front of the door that Mom left through and cry until she comes back IN the door. It doesn't matter whether it's 5 minutes or 5 days! Happy flying, M & M's mom!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

That bread look simply scrumptious, just like you! I hope the 6 days passes by quickly for you, though I'm sure the burger and fries will help!

Oh 6 days ! I cannot image Véronique leaving me 6 days...brrrr...
But maybe if I can stay with one of those bread it could be better. I hope your Dad will keep his promises.
Kisses, Faya

maggie and mitch: At our house, it is some thing in a stick that Dr.Burt and his bees make for baby rashes, then tea tree oil, then the vet! Let us know if the bag balm works, muzzer uses it on hands sometimes, so there is a big can in the kitchen. (Yummy)

Tell your mom to have a safe trip, and to look up Jake and Just Harry while she is there. Oh, and Bussie and his mom.

Six Days!!! That's like what, a hundred years in dogtime? Well, we're sure bellies full of cheese bread help! And we know from experience how much your dad will need you to stick like glue to him so he isn't lonely or lost.

We hope your mom has a nice visit!

Your Mom is going to be in Florida????? We know it's a big state, but how close will she be to us? If we can't see her, perhaps we can at least sniff her -- especially if she's carrying that loaf of cheesebread!!!

Stanley said...

Maggsie Girl!

I saw Harry's comment to you about you being as scrumptious as that cheesey bread! I'm glad to see he knows how to treat his bearded lady!

You and Mitch will have to watch out for your dad while your mama is gone. I bet she'll have a blast with your gram & gramps, and she'll miss you as much or more than you miss her. Be sure dad gets you to the Glenwood AT LEAST a couple of times!

I'm sending you some healing goober smooches for your angry mole. Hopefully that will do the trick.

Goober love,
Stanley

Hi M & M,

You have so many nice goodies to eat. First, it was the apple with apple ice-cream. Then you guys had mashmallows. Now you got some nice loaf of bread with the promise from your Dad that he's going to get you burger and fries... I wonder what's next? Roast chicken, fillet mignon... Pate?

Love,

A safe and fun trip for mom. Grammie wants to see what she is knitting. What needles does she take on the plane.
We will add your mole to our circle of healing vibes.

Happy Blogiversary to you! And, wow, that cheese bread looks awesome! I am sure your Mom is a great cook.

Koobuss said...

Hi Maggie,

Sorry to hear that your mom is going away for so long, but look at it this way. You and Mitch should get lots of treats and other goodies from Dad while Mom is away. Hehe. How nice that your mom will get to visit her mom and have some treats for her.

That bread looks absolutely delicious. I wish I could dive right into it. I love bread. That thing that your mom did with the recipe, trying to fit enough for two loaves into one pan, sounds like something that my mom would do. Hehe.

Take good care of your mole (no scratching) so that when your mom gets home you will have good news for her.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie

Ohhh no, six days without Mom?? That's almost 6 weeks for us doggies. We doggies were gone to Ohio last month for only 4 days and old Clancy got really lonely with just Dennis to keep her company. I hope your Dad does a good job keeping you guys happy!
Your Mom is a great cook with all the yummy things she makes. Love that cheese bread!
