I have been staying home taking care of Eric and the two cats while Mom & Dad have been away. Mom and Dad came home yesterday. Dad brought Mom home and he went back down to Springfield early this morning to be with Grandpa.
Take care and "Don't forget to hug a dog today!"

Here's a couple of shots from the front yard.
Here I am peeking through the gate. I see my next door neighbor outside. His name is Cooper. He is a Collie.
Here's Cooper, he is such a sweet guy.
Hope you enjoyed Mom's flowers. Take care and until next time.......... Don't forget to hug a dog!

Here I am sleeping next to him as he works on the computer. Dad works from home a lot and I get to sit or lay next to him while he works. We keep each other company. We get along with each other real swell. Sometimes if Dad is working away and has a snack, he will share a little bit with me. It may be the sad Teddy Bear look that makes Dad give in and share with me. That is not the main reason I am always next to him, but it is one of them.
Here I am again, in my bed in Mom & Dad's room. The weekend is winding down and I am worn out. It has been another fun one. I got to spend a lot of time with Mom, Dad & Eric. My good friend Linda stopped by to visit with me on Saturday. Linda used to live across the street from me. She moved to an apartment downtown. I don't get to see her as much as when she lived next door. I always like it when she stops by to visit. One of my other friends, Winnie, also stopped by for a visit. I have fun when Winnie comes by also. They are both very special humans. Hope every one''s weekend was as good as mine was. Don't forget to hug a dog......we like it when you do!

Eric & Callie
Amber & Mom Amber & Scott
Me again, laying in one of my favorite spots. Next to some of Mom's flowers. Mom has many flowers and she really enjoys being outside with me working in her flower gardens. I'll have to get more pictures of our gardens once they are in full bloom.
Later that afternoon, Dad took off for a ride on his Harley. He had a nice ride. Here is a picture of Dad's bike. He loves his bike.The next day, Sunday (Mother's Day). Eric fixed dinner for Mom & Dad. It was his Mother's Day gift to Mom. He went to the store to buy all of the goodies and came home to fix the meal. Mom & Dad didn't have to do anything. They relaxed and watched TV while Eric prepared dinner. (He even did all of the dishes.) I'm told it was very good, however I had my usual.........Purina One, yummy.... yum!
Here is Eric, hard at work on dinner........
And the finished masterpiece.........
"Sauteed Chicken with Sicilian Olives, Capers and Roasted Lemons"
We all had a good weekend. Why are weekends so darn short and quick to come to an end? Oh well, later that evening, I finished off the day with a quick nap before bedtime.
Happy Mother's Day Grandma Ruby. We all love and miss you so very much.......... Until next time.............."Don't forget to hug a dog!"

Well, I had promised a "Manly" photo of Dad. Well, here it is. He was breaking broncos at the early age of three years old. Hope everyone is having a good week. Don't forget all the Mother's this Sunday.
Most of all...........don't forget to hug a dog!

This is a picture of my Mommy. Isn't she cute in her blue rain suit? She will probably get a little upset with me for this picture, but I think she looks real cute. Mommy looks cute no matter what she wears. Her and Dad like to go on little trips on their Harley. Dad calls it a Hog, but I've seen pictures of hogs before and that doesn't look like any hogs I've seen. I miss Mom and Dad when they leave on these trips. I don't know if they just like to get away for a couple of days or enjoy getting a away from me and the cats. Nah....I'm sure they miss me when they're gone (not so sure about the cats though) and I really miss them.
Hey, you've seen pictures of the spoiled cats, Me, Mom, Eric, Grandma Chickie, my cousins, and my red neck friends. But you haven't seen Amber and Scott yet. Well, here they are. What a great looking couple! They are getting married on July 11th and we are all so excited. We can not wait to have Scott become a part of our big family. He fits right in and we love him. We are so very happy for the two of them and we know they will enjoy spending the rest of their life growing old together. Just like Mom and Dad do. (not that Mom & Dad are old by any means) Scott & Amber spent last weekend on a get away with friends and we can't wait to see the pictures. Check out Amber's new blog here: http://www.avocado-owlet.blogspot.com/
So long everyone, maybe next time I'll post a picture of my Dad. He is quite an adventurous sort of a man. I'm sure I can find a real manly picture of him to post. It seems that most of his photos are that way........ until then, "Don't forget to hug a dog."

Here I am walking everyone to the gate as they left for the day. Mom and Aunt Patti gave Grandma Doris a ride home. Grandma couldn't stay too late, as she had to get home and check on cousin Boo. If you remember, Boo has been sick and had to spend some time in the Doggie Hospital. He is feeling a lot better now. (Thanks Dr. Pete) Boo has to eat special food and take it easy for a while.
Mom took the camera to get a couple of pictures of Boo. I am so happy that he is feeling much better. Boo likes it out on the deck also. He likes to lay in the sun and soak in some rays.
This is his favorite position to relax in. I think he looks like a miniature bear rug myself. I can't get this flat. I hope everyone had a good weekend. I sure did. Don't forget to hug a dog.

I want to ask all to say a prayer for my little cousin, Boo. He is in the doggie hospital tonight and is real sick. I sure hope he is feeling better tomorrow. He has been sick off and on for a few weeks and I worry about him.
Dad and I went for another walk tonight and I got to spend most of the day outside in the beautiful sun. It was a good day for me. Take care and don't forget to hug a dog.

Today I got to spend most of the day outside as it was real nice out. I also went for a walk with Dad after he got home from work. That is always fun. I get to visit some of the neighborhood dogs on our walks.

Tonight we watched a good movie. It was a tear-jerker. Mom, Dad & I watched Marley & Me. I love dog movies. This one was kinda sad. I have come to the decision that us dogs are not on this planet long enough. We must make the most of what time we have to be with our owners and they must do the same with us. And remember: Don't let a day go by that you don't hug a dog.

Here is Bailey napping in the window seat. I get along pretty good with Bailey, but Callie is a different story. She's always hissing at me. Callie thinks she owns this place around here. She has more seniority than Bailey or myself. It's hard to believe that Callie and Bailey are sisters. They are as different as night and day.
Maybe in the next day or two I will post a picture of Callie. I really hate to give her much attention. She gets enough as it is. She's so spoiled.
Rick and I are staying in today, just chilin' and watching baseball on TV. He likes baseball. We play catch when it is nice outside. Right now, there is new grass seed planted in my back yard. Those areas are off limits to me for a while. I get to go on the leash and go on the outside of my fenced in back yard. That's always fun to go for walks. I do have a little arthritis on my right hip, but I tuff it out when we walk.
Amber and Scott are coming over tomorrow. That is always fun, I like seeing them. Amber gives me hugs. Eric was suppose to come over as well tomorrow, however he called and is not feeling very well today. Bummer, I was wanting to see him too. I hope he gets better and can come over. He receives his Master's Degree on May 2nd. We are all proud of him. Keep checking back for pics of Amber, Scott, Eric and oh yeah, Callie - the grumpy cat. Hug a dog today!
