Toys, Trailer & Tote

Me and Stanley have been working on our toy pile (the one that is downstairs that I, Murphy, slowly bring upstairs one-by-one) while mom has been working on her sewing project.  See that chair? It is her sewing chair.

Sometimes we just have to rest cuz it is really hard work.

This is what she is making.  It will be a bed liner, at the foot of the bed, for me and Stanley to use when we are sleeping.  Silly mom, we like to sleep with our heads on the pillow!  Anyway, she is making 2 of them (split king bed) cuz she said otherwise they would always be messed up by the Rain Dance that I do every night.

She is working on the second one now and then she will put the border on them both and then quilt them.  

Our weather is going to be returning to sping, even though it was kinda nippy (for mom, not us) when we went for our run on Monday.

Mom said she is going to open up the wheelie house and start getting it ready for our Grand Canyon trip.  We won't be leaving for a while yet but she said it is getting close enough (and she has too many things going on just before we leave) so she has to do it while she can.

Speaking of our wheelie house, we received the most wonderful pressie from our furend Abby and her mom.  Right away mom said the tote was for HER but we KNOW that Abby planned for US to put our treats and toys in it when we travel in the wheelie house so we're gonna have to talk about that!

In the meantime, we hope ever'one will have a wonderful Easter.  It will be quite a day at our house cuz it is Easter, April Fool's Day and . . .  Dad's birfday!!!  Yup, our dad will be 511 years old!

Sorry we haven't been around much.  We keep talking to mom about it.  Today she is exhausted cuz she had chills all night last night.  She thinks it was from her Shingles Vaccination (the new one is 97.2% effective).  BUTT today is a OUR special day . . . .

More On Deb & Staying Informed

Today has been a hard day for our friend Deb (Three Little Pugs & Stella Rose Long on Facebook).  She continues to have pain (and now chills from fever).  She was seen by doctors today but no answers yet.  There will be more tests to see if the doctors can figure it out.  In the meantime, she's off work and struggling.  POTP & Prayers are requested!


And just so you know how we start our days . . .

Deb Update & Us

First of all we will give you an update on Deb.  The actual procedure was supposed to be 20 minutes but after 2 hours they still could not find the stone nor do the stent.  So now they are wondering if it is something else.  Deb is home now, resting.  We will let her fill in the details when she goes to work on Friday (and has Internet) but for now no solution yet . . . so stay tuned.


The weather warmed up today, into the 50's! And it's supposed to get even better!  Stanley posed for a picture for Jessie.  He hopes she likes it and hangs it on her fridge.  I think he really looks buff!

Stanley stole Wilson while we were having a training session.

Stanley plays a recall game with mom and dad where they call him and he comes running and then the other one calls him back.  Stanley loves this game until he gets tired and then he won't budge.

Here he was barking, "Snap a picture so Jessie can see me running!"

I was still working with Wilson.

Stanley says it's a sure sign of spring when our warm weather bowl is full of water!

I don't have time to drink, I have training to do!

I can do this all day long!

Our Friend Deb

Our friend Deb from over at the Three Little Pugs is having a medical situation.  If she was able to write this post we are PAWSITIVE there would be lots of cussing so we will stay true to their form and cuss too since it's about their Mom.  Our mom said it was OK to cuss for this post.

Damnit! After 3 weeks of terrible suffering, that kidney stone (as big as a damn pencil eraser - we shit you not) is not budging one bit!  And you know it hurts like a SOB! So now things have gotten serious enough that the doctors are going to put in a stent and try to blast that sucker into smithereens!   This is a medical procedure, done at the hospital and NOT for sissies!

Whoa Nelly, that is gonna H.U.R.T like a &^%$#@!!

This is all gonna happen TOMORROW - Wednesday!  So we know these 3 pugs would sure appreciate some prayers and POTP for their mom.

Yeah but that's a different post.

POTP for Deb!

*I approved the cussing in this post - Mom

Checking In

We thought we better check in.  Mom said we will walk around Blogville this afternoon to see what everyone is doing.  In the meantime, today is the day me and Stanley go for our 6 mile run!

First, we had to rest up real good.

I wanted to pose for my fiance so she can see all my muscles.

Our stuffies got out of control and tried to run away!  Luckily we caught them in time!

Lamb Chop is a trusted friend.  You know you can never have enough trusted friends!

Stanley's eye is healing well.  The dogtur said it will be just fine!

We had to change our Grand Canyon vacation to April cuz of the weather.  This is how me and Stanley help mom read.

Our Aunt Karen made us new reversible bandannas.  We think they are most excellent!

Other than that we are just waiting for the weather to warm up.  Our bad snow storm that was supposed to come over the weekend fizzled out so mom is happy about that.

We hope to see you all this afternoon!
