Evil Molly

Molly can be such a fun playmate but when it comes to mealtimes, she's a real witch!
Mom is preparing our food and Molly is making darn sure that I don't get anywhere near mom or the food!  You can't hear her but she's growling at me in a very low voice. She thinks mom can't hear her.  
 This goes on until mom tells Molly to get "over here and sit and stay" and then I can move in closer. 
 Mom patrols us when we eat. She has to make sure that Molly stays on her side.  This has been going on for almost 2 years, ya know!
Molly has her own water but she sneaks over and drinks mine.
 And when we're both all done, Molly doesn't want me to leave this spot until she says so.  Who the heck does she think she is?!
It's a good thing that I'm patient and a big loveable boy!
 Do you think I should chomp her leg off?
Do any of you act this way towards your doggie siblings?

Love ya lots♥

Two Years Already

Not one day goes by that we don't think of our sweet angel Maggie~~

Maggie,  we just wanted you to know that mom broke out your special coat when we were experiencing those scary freezing temps.  We both took turns wearing it when we went out to do our bidness and we felt nice and warm and cozy wrapped in the beautiful coat that you adored.
We miss you, Maggie♥

Something is Missing

We were at Crumpie's and we noticed that something was horribly wrong!
 Did you notice too?
Our stairs are missing!  What's with the ladder?  We don't "do" ladders!
How do we get upstairs to the second floor to supervise?
 And how do I get upstairs to amuse myself and play with my ball or to drop my ball and try to hit the closest hooman's head down below?
 This is NEVER going to work and we were most upset about it - upset to the point that mom felt so bad that she gave us treats.
 This helps a little bit but we still have a HUGE problem, dad!
 We will snooze here and wait until you decide how best to fix this problem!
So until next time..........

Love ya lots♥

Eight Inches

We got eight inches of cold fluffy snow yesterday!
Does my nose look crooked to you?
It's probably frozen!  It's only 10 degrees outside right now and the sun is shining and it's the peak of the afternoon.   Mom and dad don't even want to think about what the lows are going to be tonight!  brrrrrrrr
 Molly appears to be frozen in place~~
 And because it's so cold out, we can only be outside for a VERY short period of time or we will lift our feets for mom to dust off the snow because they begin to freeze!
The black swans have a heat light inside their swan cottage and they are smart enough to let themselves in at night.   Dad doesn't even feed them outside any more. He feeds them inside to encourage them to go in.  
 Penny, Margaret and Angel Whooper have lots of company on this very frigid day~
For all of the peeps who are once again in this deep freeze - stay warm!

Love ya lots♥

Pasta Fagioli

Our mom made this soup called pasta fagioli and we helped her. 
 It has lots of ingredients in it but about the only thing that we scored was a piece of carrot.    Mom said that raw potatoes and cannellini beans and chick peas aren't really for pups. 
 Our mom didn't feel like making bacon so she cheated.      I sure wish the mouth of this jar was wider so I could get my tongue in there!
 The soup is cooking away.
We still need to cook the ditalini pasta and add that. 
We can definitely have pasta, right mom?
 A sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and we're good to go!
It was delicious and mom says that we are the bestest helpers!

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

Love ya lots♥

Our Blog Book

This year's blog book came in the mail yesterday.  Mom orders one every year so she has tons of pictures of us.
We chose this picture for the cover because we were waiting for a very special AireGirl and her mum to come and visit us for the very first time.  
 And we do have to say that this has to be the highlight of 2013 - our visit with Miss Elaine and Sunshade the SuperDale
We sure did have lots of fun together!
 Who are these handsome doggies on the back cover?!  
 Seven books, Molly! 
The first posting by angel Maggie was November 2006.   That's a lot of posts!
We love our blog books. They are so very special to us~~

Love ya lots♥

Yesterday was our first day back at Crumpie's in over a month!
 Can you tell we're out of our minds with excitement!
 We had a very warm January day yesterday. It was almost 50 degrees out and dad suggested that we head to Lenny and Joe's for fish.
S-U-R-E - of course - absolutely!
 I see dad coming with foodables, Molly!
 Clam roll, fish sandwich, cole slaw and french fries.

 You don't see the fries on the plate because we are eating them!

We were rewarded handsomely for a job well done!
We're off to Crumpie's again tomorrow!  We sure do love supervising!

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

Love ya lots♥

We're Timber Framin'

Guess where we are today?
In the workshop - our workshop!  Mom and dad are timber framing a barn that will be raised in Maine in September.
The timber frame drill bit is socket-ed in!  Its job is to drill the holes where the pegs will fit.
 The sawdust is flying~
 The timber frame mallets and chisels and combination squares are out and working.
Dad is feeling much better!
We're off and running and we are so happy to be back to work!   We have work in our shop and more work to do at Crumpie's so we will be very busy supervising pups!

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

Love ya lots♥

Our dad was discharged from the visiting nurses and on Tuesday, his PICC line was removed.
No more IV antibiotics and pumps that make beeping noises and no more flushing his blood lines with saline and heparin.  He's almost a free man!

We have lots of saline and heparin flushes that are sealed and never used.  Mom is going to see if our vet or a rescue group could possibly use them. One of the visiting nurses told us that's what she does with these. 

 We are so happy that our dad is healing! He's coming along brilliantly!
 Mom was in a baking mood and made another loaf of her cheese bread!

Life is good~~

Love ya lots♥

All Gone

We had fog this morning and 50 degree temps earlier today and then rain and drizzle and look what happened.
Our snow is all gone!  Only a few teeny tiny piles remain. 
Molly and mom love to play ball while mom is supposed to be cooking dinner~
 Molly hides her ball in our basket full of toys and it's mom's job to find it and toss it to her. 

 Mom thinks that Molly can't tell which is her tennis ball.  Silly mom!
 While the girls play ball,  I'm working hard to get treats out of this contraption that doesn't cooperate very well. 

 Have you had enough ball playing yet, Molly?!
Our temps are supposed to drop tonight and get superfrigid!  A lot of our friends are already in this cold and scary grip.   Stay safe and stay warm, guys!

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly
