Cheer Up Mom!

September 10th, 2009

This morning when I went outside I saw a squirrel that I really REALLY wanted. It had a branch in it’s mouth and I though he was bringing it to me as a peace offering. I tried to run at him to take it and then maybe have a play, but that darn squirrel just ran up a tree with my branch gift. Stupid squirrel. Now I am just lazing about in the living room. My mom is acting sad because of the loss of our dog friends, and she is trying to make everything I do into a big deal. For example, I got up on the couch and looked at her before I flopped down. I forgot to perk up my ears so now she thinks I feel sick. She also feeds my these nasty shark cartilage pills so my breath reeks, but today she has the feeling that my breath smells because I have a disease inside me. Sigh…I’m like MOM! I JUST chased a friggin squirrel outside…but she is just sad today that cancer has to happen to us doggies. I don’t blame her! But I sure love all the attention and butter treats I get!

well…minus the butter treats with the shark cartilage inside…

    Well Jack, ya gotta be patient with these humans, bad news about Tripawds hits them close to home.

    It takes them a while to realize that while it hurts so much to see our fellow Tripawd warriors say goodbye, eventually they can learn how to accept that there are just some things they cannnot control.

    Your Mom will eventually learn to make the most of each day with you, without dwelling too much on the “what if’s”.

    Now, go get that squirrel and show her how it’s done!

    I’ve never heard of one to love so much butter! You should be a butter spokesdog.

    I’ve had a hard time reading about all these dogs losing their lives to cancer too. It’s so hard. Jerry is right-it’s close to home. You read it and then you look over at your best friend. It’s all part of the process.
