Dad's Friend

Look what dad's friend dropped off while he was at one of his doctor appointments~
It's a whole case of chocolate gelato!

 One of dad's problems was that his protein was too low so he has been eating lots of protein so that he can heal and get back to his old self! 
This gelato has 15 grams of protein in one of these containers.
 We were checking out the website and we see that they have six different flavors.  Why couldn't our freezer be full of vanilla or ginger or lemon or mint or strawberry?   Anything but chocolate!
Mom and dad sit there eating ice cream in front of us and they tell each other how happy they are to be eating healthy!  Do you think this is fair?

Our dad is on the mend and he's doing wonderfully!  He still has a bit of fluid in his legs but other than that, he's doing VERY well!    It must be all of the gelato!

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

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hi M & M :-) Wow that is some supply there, glad to hear you Popster is doing well. That's some smart bike there, our human has always been a motorcyclist but SHE talked him into a car after an accident, we do notice he's kept all his biker gear though so it's only a matter of time ;-) Dex & Lou x

What are gelato? We've never seen or had any of those before. They must be quite tasty. I agree with you. Why chocolate? But I think a tiny bit of it won't hurt you guys. We sometimes get very small pieces of choco stuff just for taste.

Good to know your dad's doing good!

We are soooooo glad your dad is doing better! That looks like a heck of a supply of gelato! Of course, being chocolate flavor, it wouldn't last long at our house! Our mom is a choco-holic!

Aire-hugs,

So glad your human is feeling better. It is tough when they aren't well. The worry, the concern, the stress that we fourlegged ones have to endure.....

I don't know what I would do if my human got real sick....So take good care of him and tell him the rest of us are thinking of him.

And wow, do you get to ride the big red moving contraption with him. Pretty cool.

I get to go on the ATV with Vickie but I don't like it. I would rather run on my own four legs.

Love
Bert

We are so glad to hear that Uncle George is doing better. Now about that Gelato - we think Ginger would be a great flavor - maybe you should talk your Peeps into ordering a variety package.

Wow - that sounds so good. My Mom also has this problem of not getting enough protein - she was even suffering with with protein malnutrition at one point. Her problem is she can't have sugar either - otherwise she would ordering and devouring gallons of the gelato !! I am so glad your dad is feeling better - that is wonderful news and yes - I think chocolate should not be allowed - any other flavors would be most welcome

Sally said...

So happy to hear that your Dad is feeling better - all that gelato would perk us up too! Maybe you should sneak a tub or two - I mean he might not even notice they are missing?

We're REALLY glad your dad is doing so much better! If it takes chocolate gelato to do it, you guys don't REALLY mind, do you? Although you'd THINK your mom and dad would get a flavor you can share, too!!!
Play bows,

Sam said...

Wow that's just too much chocolate. I think that your dad's friend could have mixed it up a bit with some vanilla. After all, humans can't live on chocolate alone. Can they?

I knows that your Dad is getting better but its really not nice not to share!
