My mother smiled tonight...a lot!

Friday, March 04, 2011

We gave my mother her birthday present a bit early. He is a 7 week old Maltipoo she named Fluffy Humphrey Bogart. Many of you already know my mother is in a nursing/rehab center. It is our hope that we will have her home with us in the next month. She has dementia and a lot of health problems, and is the dearest person in the world. This video is my brother attempting to convince her that it is her dinner, not the puppy's! Very cute!

    Oh how adorable! What a great gift for her, it's a wonderful idea! Pets have a proven positive effect on those who are in nursing homes or dealing with illness. Thanks for sharing!

    She smiled so much tonight it made me cry. In case you can't hear the video, my mom was trying to feed the puppy her dinner. My brother told her no, it would make the puppy sick. Mom said, "It's doggy food." Brother said, "No, it's Mommy food. It's your food". Mom said, "Did it come from me?". She can be so cute. She cried when we gave the puppy to her, then cried again when we had to take him home. She asked me to bring him back every day to her and you can bet your bottom dollar that is exactly what I am going to do. Fluffy Humphrey Bogart is fast asleep in his new crate next to my bed, and tomorrow he will go visit his new mommy again. Thank you, Lord, for my mother's joy and smiles. emoticon
