She's Home!!

My mom thought I might have forgotten who Leah was but NO WAY! Leah came home on Friday night and I was so surprised and happy to see her that I had a little back-sneezing fit. I got over it and managed to lick her face and let her know I love her and missed her soooooo much!
Libby was happy to see Leah too. Can't you just see the excitement on her face?Do you like Leah's hat? My mom knitted it for her!

Leah's Room

Here are a couple of pictures of Leah's room. My mom has been working really hard to get it all done before Leah comes home on Friday for the Thanksgiving break. The pictures aren't great but this is what she's done so far:

  1. Painted the room
  2. Pulled up the old carpeting
  3. Cleaned and treated the wood floors
  4. Installed new quarter round for the molding
  5. Installed new saddles for the closet doors
  6. Sold her old dressers and desk
  7. Moved in a large dresser from another room
  8. Got new bedding & lamp shades & pillows
  9. Made new window treatments
  10. Installed new wooden blinds
  11. Ordered a "sleeper" chair
    Whew! Too bad we don't have a before picture because it's hard to appreciate how bad the room looked before. Leah wants my mom to wait until she gets home to hang up the "artwork" and to buy an area rug. We'll post some final pictures after that is done.

Monday, Monday

I've got a case of the Monday blues. I'm at work with my mom, sleeping on the floor in between the discarded monitor and the garbage can feeling bored and lonely. I wanted to stay home with Ziggy today but mom made me come to work with her. This is a nice soft blanket though and I am catching up on my rest so maybe it's not all that bad. Brrrr... it's cold outside too and it is nice and warm here in the office. Ok, the blues are gone. Mondays arent' so bad!

3 Boys on a Couch

My mom has been so busy she hasn't been online in 6 days! The first item we need to announce is that I co-won the Scary Halloween Costume contest on Dogs With Blogs!!! I tied with Homer (he had a really awesome costume) and I get to pick out a prize from the DWB store. I'll be sure to post about it when I get it! Thanks for voting for me :P
Second item which is a little sad - our pretty orange canary, Edward, died yesterday. He was pretty old and had been sick for awhile. My mom says she's relieved that he is happy and healthy again flying around the Bridge with his bride Sylvia. I'm sure he's singing all of his songs, even the one that sounded like a car alarm. So now there are no birds at all in my house! Only 2 dawgs and 2 cats...
My mom wanted to share these pictures with all of you. She calls the series, "Three Boys on a Couch" for obvious reasons. We are getting new couches this weekend and my mom is so excited you'd think she was a kid at Christmas! She says the new couches are going in another part of the living room so me and the cats can't climb up on the kitchen counter any more. That'll work for me and Libby but I can guarantee you that Tommy will still be on the counter.
Finally, my mom has been busy, busy, busy cleaning out and fixing up Leah's room. Leah will be home for Thanksgiving on November 21st and my mom wanted to have it all done for her. Mom painted the room three different colors - very bright yellow, a softer yellow and white. She pulled up the carpet and treated the wood floors, installed some new quarter round for the molding and saddles for the closets and new wooden blinds. The room looks great and is soooooo clean. The door is shut all the time now so me, Ziggy and the cats can't go in there. Not fair! I need to mark that room as my own...

My 100th Post!!!

I've reached a milestone in my blogging career - Post #100. Not every post has been earth-shatteringly enlightening, informative, creative or funny but every post has been from my heart. I've met so many nice dawgs, cats, hampsters and, yes, even humans through this experience! I've received support in sad times and sent out my paws to others during their trials. I always look forward to hearing from my friends and visiting with them also. I can only hope that the next 100 posts will be as fun for me as the first 100 were. Thanks for being there with me :P

Tell your humans not to forget to VOTE today!!!

Popcorn Balls & Pigeons

I didn't need to get all upset worrying about hoards of human children coming to my house on Halloween. We only had 4 kids and they all came at once and they were all my mom's niece's children. Those kids are ok because they have 3 small dawgs and know not to get all up in my face. They leave me alone until I'm ready to talk to them.
My mom got a popcorn ball from the neighbors around the corner that she has been trick-or-treating with since she was a little girl! Mrs. Culver says she has to keep making the popcorn balls because there are still people who come there specially on Halloween just for them (my mom being one of them!) Doesn't it look good? My mom ate it right up and only gave me the crumbs that fell off while she was scoffing it down. Hmpf!This morning my mom looked outside and saw a pigeon in our back yard! What?! We don't live in a city, there are no pigeons hanging around in parks eating bread crumbs here like in the movies. Where the heck did that pigeon come from. Did he hitch a ride out to the Hamptons on the Long Island Rail Road or on someone's car and decide to become a beach bum pigeon?? He flew away when my mom got about 10' away from him. I wonder if he'll come see us again...
