Hi Poodles, Doodles, Kitties and Peeps!!!

Well it's warm here today and sunny so I have been lazing around on the back of the couch getting some sunshine! I love warm spots. Every time Mommy gets up I get in her warm spot! sigh! Well, I gotta go outside and do my numbers! Speaking of numbers, it's 54 days till Spring here in the South! Mommy says it takes a little longer for our Northern neighbors and friends to thaw out, whatever that means!!

Love,
April

Ha to all my friends,

Trista, I'm so glad to see you again. Sorry your mommy has been so busy. During the Christmas holidays a lot of humans get busy, not me, I stay warm & snug in our cozy little apartment, then when mommy comes home from her running around, I climb in her lap & purr! I hope that you are staying warm, we had a little snow here yesterday (Thursday).
April, I don't blame you for staying inside, I do to. let the humans go out in the snow if they want to. The window is as close as I want to get to it! the snow looks pretty, but I want no further part of it.
Tara, glad everything is ok where you are. I'm glad that you played it smart in the snow. Frost must have funny doing a 3 paw hop!

Hello Poodles Doodles Kitties and Peeps!

Trista! Wag Wag Wag!!! I am so glad to hear from ya'll1 Glad you are keeping warm!!

OMG!!! It snowed some here today! Mommy tried to get me to go out and do my numbers but I would not! I know what that white stuff is now! Shiver!!!

LingLing, that has happened to my Mommy before too. She said I did it sniffing around everywhere! What? Phooey!!!

So glad to hear that everything is ok with ya''ll Tara. Mommy says Mushers wax will keep your paws from getting damaged from that hurty snow and salt and you won't be able to feel it like you would booties! That;'s what they use in Alaska. If kitties go outside you can use it for them too. Here is a link:

Well Mommy is making cooking noises! My favorite sound!

Love,
April

Hello April, Ling Ling and Tara,

Its Trista again.....howdy from Texas! I missed ya'll. My mom has been busy with work and coming home and cooking up batches of food that I cant get to but that's ok. Its so cold here that my little feet are frozen. Mom keeps me wrapped in a small blanket when its lap time. So I hope all my buddies are keeping warm too.

Hi, April and LingLing! Glad to hear your humans are doing better. We were a little bummed when the Ravens lost despite our keeping our humans watching them on TV. But we felt better after going to Shirlington and meeting a few admirers, tho my human said it was strange they still had Hannukkah lights on even after she took down our Christmas lights. We were glad she moved the penguin that had taken over our favorite perch with views of the driveway. Then we had some wet fur days and a teensy bit of snow, which meant lotsa salt at Shirlington and our walks got cut short when Frost dis the three-paw hop, if you know what I mean. I tried staying close to the trees, which have less salt, but I'm sure that my paws would have hurt soon too. I don't want my human to try to put rubber booties on my paws either, so snow time isn't my fave.

Time to cuddle,

Wags,

Tara.

Hi Tara & April,
Glad to see you back Tara, are you back for the winter now? You have so many interesting travels, I enjoy hearing about all of them. That fizzy vitamin water is a good idea. Mom takes a vitamin C every day 365 days a year. no summer colds for her or winter flu either! She says it boosts something she calls her immune system, whatever that is.

Hi, April and LingLing. Well, it seems almost everyone is a little sicko. Me and Frost were really happy about the Ravens winning on Saturday (cuz we kept our human watching tv and not fussing around, of course!), but then started feeling sicko. Dad said it was because he snuck us each a pat of butter, which we liked, but which our human said made us have poopie problems later. Plus yesterday was a wet fur day. We ate some chickie and are feeling a teensie bit better, but aren't looking forward to the cold weather. Our human said at the library on Saturday, most everyone has a cough or sneeze, and she really does not want dad to get sick, so she gives him some weird fizzy vitamin water, and we give him cuddles

Wags,

Tara.

Hi April,

My mommy says she is feeling much better. Thank you for your prayers. She almost looks human again. Her face is bruised all over, but that is fading, she still has a small knot on her head, she keeps a small headache. But, she says she feels 500% better than she did Christmas day. She went to church today, & is going shopping tomorrow.

Yes, it makes me mad to when "sick" people go to schools, grocery stores, take public transportation, or even go to church!! They go to all these public places, then want to blame the weather for making people sick. DUH? Humans can act SO dumb!

Mommy & I are saying kitty & people prayers that your mommy feels a lot better real soon.

Hello Poodle, Doodles, Peeps and Kitties!!!

We saw part of the Mummers parade on tv! Mommy has had a terrible cold for a couple of weeks and she got reinfected from people who go to the stores when they are sick or they take their sick children! She suspects that she has pneumonia cause she has these horrible coughing fits and she can't catch her breath! It scares me and makes me cry but she finally goes outside and get some cold air on her face and it calms down the coughing. I'm so glad I can't catch that stuff!!!

I am so glad LingLing's Mommy is feeling a little better!

Love,
April

I think it's gonna be a quiet day, 'cept for my human's sneezing. Frost did some sneezing too this morning. He says it's because of the yucky stuff the vet put in his nose last Saturday, but my human says it's cuz he's been finding and tearing apart her kleenex and stuff. I feel OK, but looks like I'll have to watch all my humans and Frost today.

Yesterday we had a quick history schmistory trip to Elkton, which my human says was once famous for human weddings. We enjoyed the sunshine and breezes on our fur, even if we didn't meet any pups and met only a couple of humans, who admired us of course. In Philadelphia, we saw some pretty sparkly floats for the Mummers Parade. Traffic was pretty bad, plus it was cold so we couldn't inspect much, but left our marks in South Philly under the expressway where my human says the mummers practice sometimes. I wonder if they'll be on TV.

Anyhow, gotta go now for some breakfast, and start the year with the best paw forward, of course.

Wags,

Tara.

Hello Pups!

Oh no LingLing! I bet your Mommy is very very sore! Good thing she has you there to help her out!

Well, nothing much going on here! Mommy is glad that Christmas is over and that a new year is coming. I guess no one has told her that means she will turn 60 on July 6th!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!! Poor old lady! I really thought she was about 364, but my Poodle sense told me that couldn't be!

Love,
April

Oh, LingLing! So sorry to hear about your mommy's owies! Of course I know you're taking good care of her. Me and Elvis are saying poodle prayers for her. And Frost says he's saying his prayers too, and that he told his friend Happy too.

In case you're wondering who Happy is, she's a bichon girlpup that Frost met yesterday. Frost had to get some shots and met her in line. I don't know if they'll meet again, tho Frost is gonna have to go back in a week or 2 because the vet says he couldn't get all his shots reupped at once cuz he weighs less than 15 pounds. I don't mind that Frost is in love again. Of course that didn't stop him from running and barking with the big dogs at the dog park this morning.

Here, the rain started again this afternoon. But it stopped on Christmas morning and we took a history schmistory trip to Winchester, which is in Virginia past where I got adopted from. Though me and Frost got a little hot, I wore my Christmas sweater and Frost wore his sparkly Santa suit, and we listened with our humans to the Christmas songs on the radio. Of course we got admirers. And water to stay comfy, and a teeny bit of ham, and some licks of McDonald's froyo, and then some tendon and the yummy lamb food we kinda like when we got home. So it was an OK day.

The next day was even better, cuz the weather stayed sunny and Elvis came. So he and Frost rassled a bit. Actually more than a little. Elvis shared some really good buffalo jerky with us. We never had it before, and it was delish. We shared our food too, and also tried some new chicken and turkey food, which Elvis also liked. Plus, Frost also got a bag of stuff after his shots, but we weren't really interested, and too busy to post here.

Tonight I'm happy cuz the Ravens won. I was a little worried cuz my human was doing lotsa stuff, and last week when she just listened to the Ravens on the car radio on our trip to Microcenter, well, they lost. And when she was doing stuff with the gate today, the Ravens weren't doing so good. So I had to put my paw down, and tell her to get her purple on and sit down and watch. I sat on one side and Elvis on the other during the fourth quarter, and Frost got on top of the couch and put his paw on her shoulder to remind her to stay put, even if he was wearing his red harness and not his purple one. Then the Ravens really got their acts together, but soon Elvis had to go home, which is sad of course.

Hoping your human is feeling better,

Wags,

Tara.

Hi April & Tara,

I hope that everyone had a very Blessed & merry Christmas! And wishing you a happy new year!!

Mommy wants me to tell you that she will be back on line as soon as she feels better. Monday, late night, she tripped & fell into the dinning room table. Both of her eyes were swollen shut, they are both opened now. She has a big "goose egg"
on her head, her face is swollen now & is black & blue down to & including her neck. I am staying very close to her @ all times & I snuggle w/ her in bed. But the Dr. says she will be fine, it will just take time.

I hope all my poodle and doodle and kitty friends are having a great holiday, with lots of treats and cuddles!

About boxes, well, we don't like them much. My human has a couple of cages or vet carrier things in the basement. One plastic one she left upstairs with the door open for a while after we first met, in case I wanted a cozy house, I guess, but it creeped me out and I wouldn't go in. It came back in the kitchen when Frost first came home, but he didn't like it neither. Actually, then my human got the bigger case and tried putting him in it nights cuz he doesn't have poodle smarts about pottie training, and he whined, even when it was next to the bed. Me, I'd rather be on the bed or the couch or sometimes one of our cozy pup beds. Right now, I have the bed by my human and Frost is snoozing on the pup bed, but sometimes it's the other way.

Sorry to hear about your butt problem, April, and I hope it's better. Frost had his poopie dingleberry problem a couple of days ago and my human wiped his butt outside but didn't really clean it. Since he hasn't really figured out the scoot or how to keep his butt fur clean, he seemed to have a butt target too, til we got home and my human did trimsies on his butt.

We know about Walmart parking lots too, mostly about waiting. Not that we don't have rude drivers in Virginia. From her cussing sometimes, the rudest drivers might be on I95/395. I did notice that she didn't take us on her Walmart trips after Thanksgiving and yesterday.

Anyhow, sometimes when we walk past stores we hear songs about White Christmas. Not this year here. It's wet. Seems we've had wet fur days for days. Anyhow, the rain stopped for a bit in Maryland on our way to Philadelphia, and my human took us for a teensy history schmistory walk to show us how far Captain John Smith sailed up Chesapeake Bay a long long time ago. Well, we weren't about to get into the water, of course, tho Frost liked the sand in a little park. We didn't see any other dogs, but a post lady admired us and wished us a Merry Christmas, even though we were in regular fur. Then in Philadelphia Frost was real polite to three different small dogs, I heard, tho I didn't go on all their walks cuz I didn't want to get my fur wet. Frost told me the human with one wondered why he didn't have his raincoat on too, and my human said she forgot it. Frost was a little peeved she didn't say he was too tuff for one.

We're both wondering after last night's brushouts whether we're gonna have to wear our Christmas coats for more pictures. If we do, we're gonna swelter cuz it's so warm (50's and 60s). Geez. I just wish it would dry out.

Merry Christmas again!

Wags,

Tara

Hi Poodly Doodlys an Kitties!!!

Well it has finally gotten cold here in the mornings but it is about in the 50's most days. I like that temp because it isn't too hot if I want to have a little zoommie time!

Mommy had to take me to the vet because I have a very bad yeast infection. so bad that the skin turned black on my hoo ha as she calls it! That doesn't look good on Poodles!!! Mommy did what the vet said for 28 days. then she went to the drug store and got some Lotrimin. The itching was not being addressed, so I was licking, then I would curl up in a little ball and go to sleepy sleepy time and Mommy said that warm moist environment made things worse!!! She is mad at that old vet cause he should have known better!!! YAY maybe if she stays mad at him I will never have to go back! Giggle!!!

Mommy said she is tired of all the shoppers driving like crazy and being rude. For the most part, people are nice to me (except for those people from "over the pond" mama says who jumped up on a chair like I weighed 500 lbs and had fangs. Mommy said it's because they eat dogs!!! WHAT???)

Anyway, I am glad to see everyone and hope you all get some good treats and loves for Christmas!!!

Love,
April

Hi Tara, Frost & April,

So glad to see you back, hope you'll soon stay long enough to join in the conversation. Maybe some time in the new year, hugh?

yeah, mamma makes me wear a collar with a bell. She says that that way, she almost always knows where I am. & if I do succeed in running out, I can't sneak up on a bird or other small animal & kill it. It sounds like Richmond is all decked out for Christmas. Did you have a good time?

This morning mommy brought a wrapped gift to church for a good friend, & a bunch of Christmas cards. She brought a box back home with her. Somebody who wants to remain anon. bought a box of 8 frozen meals & gave them to her through another friend. mommy gets meals on wheels ( a box of 6 frozen meals ) weekly. Mommy says that even frozen meals can be good with the rite seasonings. She says she'd still rather eat fresh lobster @ Commander's Palace in N.O. but a frozen chicken patty, corn & greens is good.

Mommy is going to Walmart tomorrow, I think she may get me my own little house, one like April has. Do you have a house Tara & Frost? It sure will beat that cardboard box that she takes me to the vet in now. But, she probably won't let me see it before Christmas

P.S. Tara, tell your human that my mommy water's a tree every day for 2 months after she puts it out. Maybe that would help your human's new Spruce tree to live. Hope that helps.

Hi, April and LingLing. Me and Frost are waiting for Christmas too.

A couple of days ago, we insisted upon going with our human to Richmond. It wasn't a real history schmistory trip, like our trip to Delaware the week before with a great zoomtime in the really old cemetery, but it was OK. Frost left pmail at almost every tree and my human took pictures of us with all the white lights that sort of looked like deer, and the big tree with lots of colored lights. Afterward, I had to tell her to get that silly bell collar off, right now, because walking with it was gonna drive me crazy. Have you ever had a bell collar, LingLing? Anyhow, maybe my human apologized by buying a teensy tree smaller than me at Lowes on the way back. She said it's an Alberta spruce from Canada, and she's gonna put it in the garden after Christmas, but the other times she got that kind of tree, it never survived a whole year, cuz it's from Canada where it's too cold for the nasty red mites that live in Pennsylvania and Maryland and here in Virginia. I dunno. Actually, she got a rosemary tree on her last trip to Richmond, to replace one that got really sick last winter. Well, it turned out that the old rosemary that she pruned to one branch in the spring is now blooming, but the new plant died from getting cold in the car overnight, tho our water bowl didn't freeze that night, which seems silly or wimpy or something. Well, me and Frost thought it smelled good anyway, so we kept marking by it, so maybe our human got that hint. Or maybe she was gonna get it anyway, cuz her sweatshirt had a pretty tree on it that day. For me, the most important thing was that we had lots of human admirers, even if we didn't meet any pups.

Anyhow, gotta go now and scan the neighborhood, specially since it's trash day with all the good smells. A couple of days ago, Frost met a new pal, Lana the silver tzu, who he didn't bark at, just buttsniffed politely. We're both a little disappointed that we haven't seen Mocha and Coco in weeks, just read their pmail, along with the lotsa big dogs that walk by our house.

Wags,

Tara.

Hi April,

Our tree is on a table also, there are gifts under it, but I can't get to them. The small table is so crowded, there is no room for me to jump up. Guess I'll just have to wait until Christmas. emoticon

Hello my Poodle, Doodle and Kitty friends!!!

Mommy just got a huge box with presents in it from a friend and there are some for me too! Mommy put the Christmas tree up on a table so I can't reach it though so I won't know what is in them till Christmas morning! YAY I hope at least one of them has some food in it! HAHAHA!! We heard about all of ya'll's storms Tara. and Mommy said snow snow snow up north. I hate snow!! it is cold on my little tiny tootsies and when Mommy put me on her car when there was snow on it, it shocked me so bad I jumped into her arms! No snow for me thanks. But I do like the colder weather. It makes me feel pretty frisky and I get the zoomies and run run run! Hey at 10 years old that really good

Well I better get into the kitchen cause I hear papers rattling and that usually means FOOD!!!

Love
April

Hi, April and LingLing! Last year and this one, my human did outdoor Christmas trees only. She said she didn't want Frost to mark any inside tree, or chew on ornaments, plus dad doesn't walk around too easily with his special cane or walker and the tree takes up lotsa room, whether it's in the front room partly blocking the tv or the back room making it difficult for dad to reach his computer. So last year and this, dad gets pretty Christmas lights hooked up to his computer, and we can see the lighted trees from the back windows ('cept yesterday when those outside lights went out and we went outside and they only stayed fixed for less than a minute), and some of the pretty porch lights through the top of the front door. Last year she also had lights in the bedroom that I thought were a little annoying, so she replaced them with some solar ones that go out pretty fast. Well, we'll probably supervise revisions soon, like my human's wreathmaking between matsy-pulling fits IMHO. I hope those are over since we got out Christmas photo taken Saturday.

Actually, the photo in the grand opening store wasn't bad, cuz we got lotsa admirers, which isn't bad for a wet fur day, nor is wearing clothes too awful when that keeps our fur dry, I told Frost. Otherwise, until yesterday, last week seemed to be wet fur day after wet fur day, 'cept for the big Christmas tree lighting on Wednesday that was postponed from Tuesday cuz of a storm. We're supposed to get another storm tomorrow, so I'm hoping for some quality walks today. Anyhow, Frost got a little jealous at the Shirlington tree lighting because two young doodlepups wearing glittery jackets and doing lotsa kissyfaces got even more attention then us in our natural fur. We don't do kissyface, and Frost doesn't always remember that while barking gets human and canine attention, scared kids aren't admirers. BTW when my human got out our Christmas clothes from last spring's sale, Frost's jacket was all sparkley like Hermes and Bally from Wednesday night, but I didn't tease him, and he wore it just fine, even behaved, so maybe we'll be fashionista pups some more. LOL!

Wags,

Tara

Hi April, emoticon

WHAT? NO CHRISTMAS TREE? Mommy put up 2. but she won't let me have any fun with them! Her computer desk has a shelf or mantle above it, & she has a 24" tree on it. For a cheep tree mom made it look pretty. She has white lights, I think she said 50, about 8 or 9 small, diff. color ornaments & blue & white garland. her fiber optic angel is next to it, & a pink Christmas Cactus, with a small manger scene in front of it are in the center on the other side of it are the fiber optic snowman that your mom gave her & on the end is a glass vase full of red & white poinsettia. Our "BIG" (4') tree is on a table by the front door. It has twinkling, color lights, ornaments, white garland, & a big red & green bow w/ streamers hanging just below the clear star. Our L.R. looks so festive. Mommy even has a very small wreath hanging on the wall, next to the bigger tree, & a big red bow with long streamers hanging behind the tv. We each have stockings, mommy's was handmade (crochet) with her name & D.O.B. on it. Her mommy had 3 of them made when she was a child. Mine is 3D & has a kitty head with a scarf & Santa hat on it! It reads MEOW MEOW in white letters, on green felt. Of course the stocking itself is red. They are hanging from the top of the computer desk. On our bedroom door mom has a large wreath with figurines of Mary, Joseph & the wise men on it. Tell your mommy that you just have to have @ least a tree, or it won't look or feel like Christmas in your house. She just put a red& green plaid bow w/ a candy cane in it on the door. emoticon emoticon

Hi Tara & LingLing! It has been a long time Tara! Glad your Dad is out of the rehab place. Did you say red hat party? Mommy is a red hatter and she wears big red hats and purple clothes. I'm not sure what all goes on when she is red hatting but she brings home bites for us so I know that food is involved!!

It was an ok Thanksgiving here. Mommy made a big batch of chicken and cornbread dressing and I got some chicken! SMACK SMACK!!! AND this friend of Mommy's came and brought a turkey and asked her to cook it for her cause she didn't know how. Well, I got a little bit of that but not much.

Mommy says she may not put up a Christmas tree this year.

Hope everyone is staying warm!

Love,
April

Hi, LinkLing, and thanks for the pictures. Hi too, April and Miss Lula! Golly, it's been awhile since I've posted. Sorry. :( I'm glad everyone seems OK, but still wonder about Maggie and her human and am still saying poodle prayers for them.

Things have been busy here now that dad's home. I've been giving him special cuddles. Me and Frost were interested in the Red Hat lunch at the rehab center, but we've only been back once, just after Veterans Day cuz my human said some insurance paperwork got mixed up. That was a really fun day with dad, cuz he's a vet and got some nummy freebies and shared them real nice like.

I hope LingLing's heat's fixed before the really cold weather, though the weather guys here say this November's been unusually cold. We met some real Canadian cold weather (according to a weatherman, not to dis our Canadian poodle friends, hint hint) a coupla weeks ago when we drove to Chicago. My human said she didn't want to pay for heat for the raccoons who chewed through the roof last winter, and complained another insurance company was slow or dishonest in not fixing last winter's frozen pipe damage or something. All I know is that we drove through drizzle awhile, which wasn't much fun, but we could still mark and take care of important pup business at the Maryland and Pennsylvania and Ohio rest stops. Then in Indiana it got really cold and windy. Not in our car of course. At least my human wasn't too upset when we poopied in dad's house while she unloaded our car, just cleaned it up, and the next night she loaded up the car and we drove back, further south to get a little warmer.

So Frost and I got to visit West Virginia again, exploring a different place with a really tall wall by the Ohio River. Then, the lady at the pet store in Parkersburg was so nice that she gave us some treats in a bag. We were real polite and didn't eat them in the store, but they tasted yummy when we got back to the car for more driving through what remained of the pretty autumn leaves after the storm.

Now I'm busy and real thankful cuz Elvis' over at our house while his humans are visiting Louisiana, which is way far away. Me and Frost love our packwalks with Elvis. I don't mind much sharing treats three ways, and we even showed him the store where my human gets the yummy frozen chickie, which he thought was weird at first, but now loves. OK, sometimes Frost does growl at me or Elvis, forgetting his Maryland manners while guarding a chew bone or pig's ear. Anyhow, he and Elvis love to rassle on my human's bed. After seeing each of them roll off at least once in their rowdiness, I decided to just leave that to the boypups, while I cuddle with my human.

Gotta get a quick powernap now, while Elvis' watching dad and my human's typing on her computer. I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. My humans went to a pot luck at church yesterday, so we don't have many leftovers--yet. She said she'd cook a small turkey too, in sections and just for our little family. Turns out it was in the freezer so long it wasn't defrosting quick at all. Still, something to dream about.

Wags,

Tara.

Hi Miss Lula,

Glad you popped in. It has been a long time, to long! April & I have missed you.

Sorry to hear that you mom had a little slip but, emoticon !!! emoticon !!! Those daily one mile walks help a lot, & I know you love them to.

Mom will give me meat any time, especially turkey breast & she will be expecting me to cry for some of the rest. I try to make her feel guilty, and it usually works. I hope you get lots of goodies too!!!!!!!!!!

I just wanted to pop in and say hello to the Poodle Club and give you an update! It's been a long time!

Mom gained back the 8 pounds she lost, and now she has to start dieting all over again. But one thing she DID do is keep her promise to walk me at least a mile every day! (unless it's raining). It's just become a habit now. She even got herself a new, extra-warm hooded parka so there will be no excuses. I'm one very happy poodly-doodly-doo! I love my walks!

Wishing all of you a happy Thanksgiving. Hope you will be able to stare at your moms in the just the right way that gets you the most turkey breast, and maybe even a few bites of the trimmings!

Miss Lula

Hi April,

The Potato Soup recipe that your mom sent sounds DE-LISH! That is until mom put it in sparks recipe calculator. It has almost 2,000 calories per bowl ! So mom skinnied it up a bit, and put it in sparks. recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai

asp?recipe=2832144
Now the nutritional values a much better, & it is still DE-LISH.

Hi April,

Tell your mommy Thanks from my mommy for the potato soup recipe, it sounds yummy! Mommy wants to make it real soon, as soon as she gets some ham bits. I have to go visit the vet again real soon, Mommy tried not giving me any people food except meat (no pork!) but, still, my food won't stay on my tummy. I will let you know what the vet says. Well' mommy wants to go to bed now. Sleep tight.

Mommy put smoked ham in her soup! and cheese on top!!

Hi April,

Yummy! Potato Soup. Mommy loves her potato Soup. I don't think that she's had a good Potato Soup since DeDe Passed. Mommy said that she made everything from scratch! I'm told she was a very good cook! does your mommy have a good recipe? Please ask her to send it? I already know that she won't let me sample it, but she will love it, I'm sure.

Tomorrow night it's supposed to go down to 23, but even tonight, it's supposed to be 24. Good snuggling weather! Try to stay warm & cozy! There is another front coming in Sunday.

Hi April!

Mommy tried, last summer & the summer before that to get a portable a/c or a window unit for her bedroom, but the apartment manager won't let her, besides, a portable a/c is a little pricy. O well, the ceiling fans keep the air moving year round.

Mom says that it's to cool here, it's 33 now, but early this morning, it was 27. Once it warmed up a few degrees, it sleeted! It's not even Thanksgiving yet! But mommy says that it's just a "Canadian cold front" whatever that is, coming thru. Brrr! The Canadian's should have kept it! But it does give mommy & me a good excuse to snuggle. I like that!

Hi LingLing! Wow maybe your Mommy can get a window air conditioner before next summer. Mississippi is just as hot as Alabama Mommy says!!! It went down a little cool today. Mommy had a Red Hatter luncheon but I didn't get any bites when she got back cause she had nachos whatever that is! Even though Mommy loves to lay out at the Pool in the summer she is glad that it is cooling down now!

Hi April,

Mommy keeps both of her ceiling fans on 24/12, she has asthma & this apartment does not have central air. We want to breathe! But when the air is so still, we can't!

Finally, it's going below freezing tonight, the wind chill will anyway, whatever that is.

Happy Veteran's Day, Aunt Mary!!

Hi LingLing!! Mommy has a fan going all year long. She doesn't like to breathe hot air, she can't sleep and I can't either! I like it cool.

Mommy has to work today so it will be a snooze fest until she gets home about 1:00. then we will go for a walk. No checking the mail because it's a holiday, Veterans Day. Mommy is a Veteran so she is proud of that!

Hi Pals, emoticon

Mommy says "This weather is crazy". It rained all day yesterday. Last night it was in the 40's - today, it' will be in the 70's. But by next week, it is supposed to be in the low 40's.during the day. Right now it's in the mid 60's, & it is beautiful ! Mom & I snuggled last night, & kept each other warm. Right now, Mom has both ceiling fans going, in reverse, & on low. Just enough to move the air. It feels so good.

Hi Tara and LingLing!!! Wag Wag Wag!!!

Well Tara, you have had a couple of good times! Sorry about the burs in your fur! Mommy puts a dress on me in the winter time so that I don't get so many but they still happen! ACK!!! I hope your Dad gets to come home! You could always put his bed and stuff downstairs. Mommy hates stairs too cause she can't see her feet with the neck brace on and she is really scared of missing steps and falling. She holds really tight to the hand rail.

LingLing it has gone down to 30 degrees this morning. Mommy got up and turned the heat on for the first time and it was so STINKY like burning lint. Mommy let it run for awhile to get that smell out and then sprayed air freshener around. I just snuggled with her so I was warm. I think humans should have fur on them in more places than just their heads! No wonder they get cold! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Mommy dressed me up in my prettiest dress and I got to greet lots of trick or treaters, whatever that is. They kept saying that and Mommy would give them candy! I got lots of pets and loves!!! People asked Mommy what she was dressed up as. she just had her neck brace on and not dressed up for halloween! Giggle!!!

Poodle Prayers for everyone!
April

Hi Tara & April,

Are you sure that maybe that nurse did not mistake Frost for a mouse or a rat? LOL! Sorry, that your human has been having computer & phone problems! We both missed you both a lot. emoticon It will be so nice when your Dad finally does come home. Maybe your human mom can get him a walking cane or something to help him on the stairs. Mom's Rollator (walker) helps keep her from falling on the flat floor & sidewalk, but I don't think that the 4 wheels would help on stairs. But then, what does a kitty know about walking on 2 paws?

emoticon emoticon Last night & this morning it was real cool (in the 40's) for N. Ms. By about 3 O'clock it got up to more like 60, tonight it's going down again & the weatherman said that another lo pressure system, whatever that is, will move in about 7 AM. by Friday night, late, it's supposed to be 34! Mommy & I will be snuggling for sure. April the temps there should be falling by now. Hope all of us get in some good snuggle time.

Hi, April and LingLing!

Sorry I've been offline, but our human has been having what she calls major computer and phone problems. Plus, me and Frost have been traveling pups! Some travel is not so much fun, like by dad's house which is real far away we got burs in our fur, even wearing our Tshirts. I was real grateful we didn't see no skunks, maybe cuz my human made us stay in our car most of the time, even though one morning I thought I was gonna be abandoned cuz she and Frost went out in the drizzle, then I heard some weed whacking, but no Frost or invite for me, so I barked and got put in the car again with Frost. Anyhow, Frost really likes barking at all the tollbooth people, and the takeout window people, and leaving pmail at all the rest stops, even on wet fur days like today. Me and Frost really love licks of frostys or milk shakes, and on our Chicago trip we even got some frozen chickie (and later defrosted chickie, both are yumtastic!)

Of course we went to the rehab place lots too. Dad's doing better and might be coming home by the weekend, 'cept the stairs are still hard for him. We can't help with that, only spread poodle and bichon LUV and cheer up the folks around there. Not everyone wants laptime, and that's OK. A couple of young nurses are scared of dogs. Frost told me that a couple of weeks ago (during my poopie problems) a nurse lady who took care of the other guy in dad's room jumped up on a chair by the window when Frost came into the room. For real!

Anyhow, sounds like you all are getting scrumptious food. Gotta go now.

Wags,

Tara.

emoticon Hi April,

Mommy said I'm to fat! emoticon (13.13 pounds) She says that's too much, even for a 4 year old Tom. Last year, @ the vet's I was 13.1 & she wants me to get back to that. I only get 1/2 my usual 1 oz. 2 x a day,& no people food, unless it's meat, but NO PORK of any kind, I love, love pork cracklins. She told me that she would not give BooBoo any pork either, Dr.'s orders(he told mommy that pork is not good for any of us.

Your breakfast sounds D--Lish! After I loose almost a pound, I can only hope that I'll get a meal like that.

Hope the Dr. gives your mommy a good report next week & a soft collar. Kitty & people prayers both for Tara's Dad & Aunt Mary. emoticon

Hi LingLing!!! I'm kind of worried about Tara cause I know her human was in rehab because of his severe diabetes I'm thinking. We are saying Poodle prayers for him!!!

Mommy goes to the doctor on November 6th and she is hoping he will give her a soft collar at that time if everything is ok. Mommy does do some housework but not too too much because she doesn't want to have to have this surgery again! that would be too hurty!

Welp, it's time to go see what's for breakfast in Mommy's world! I see mine is in the bowl but if Mommy cooks eggs, I want some! they are nummy to my tummy!!! Smack Smack!!!

Puppy licks!

emoticon Hi April,

Aunt Mary & my mommy seem to like some of the same foods. mommy does not have a recipe yet, but her mommy was born & raised in N.O. LA. & will get the recipe next time she calls her, & pass it on, OK? But for now mommy said that she uses a scampi sauce in a foil pack, made by Campbell's, I think. But, in the meantime, there are @ least 3 pages of scampi recipes on food.com. www.food.com/recipe-finder/all/shri
mp-
scampi
.Shrimp Scampi IS GOOD, but mommy says that the sauce is to rich for my tummy, so she only gives me the shrimp, but that's the bestes part!!! emoticon !!! And mommy promises to get a good old Cajun recipe for it!

Sorry your mommy still has to wear that old neck brace. About how long does the Dr. think that she'll have to wear it? Doesn't he know that your mommy has to hold you like a baby, & sing you to sleep? It's just not the same on her lap!

15 pounds? That's a lot. it sounds like she is doing a lot of exercise, with that, maybe she can even loose more! Tell her emoticon emoticon , emoticon

MEOW,
LingLing

Hi LingLing! Wag Wag Wag!!! Boy that shrimp scampi sounds deelish!! I've never had that before! Mommy says she loves it though. Do you have a recipe for the scampi sauce? Maybe Mommy will make some! YUM!!!

I have been just walking with Mommy a lot. she has lost 15 lbs. and that is why she is walking a lot to keep it off. She is also doing the Leslie Sansone walking DVD's. they are low impact and she can do that with her neck brace on. She has had that old thing since her surgery on September 3rd and she says she is very tired of it! She even has to sleep in it! It's hard plastic with some soft pads where her chin and neck are. I can't even be put on her shoulder to be sung to and rocked to sleep emoticon

The weather is so nice today so we are getting ready to go walking and maybe there will be a little pee mail to read and a Poodle adventure!!!

Poodle Kisses to you and your Mommy!

Hi April, emoticon

Mommy just finished her10th skein of crochet yarn on the afghan that she is making. I told her that I thought it was plenty long enough for the bed, so she put it on to measure width & length. The width will be fine after she crochets fancy edges in 3 sides. But, it's only about 1/2 long enough!!! emoticon Good grief! That's a lot of yarn. Once in a while tho, mommy will make a little ball out some scrap yarn & let me play with it. That's lots of fun. I like all of the pretty colors. She leaves a tail on the ball & ties it to the door after I chase it around on the floor for a while. That's such fun!
What are you & your mommy up to lately?

KITTY KISSES,

Hi April,

MEOW!! Here I am. emoticon I was not able to get on line & chat with you, mommy did not turn the computer on. I guess she was just being lazy! emoticon .We had a superior supper tonight, SHRIMP scampi. Mom had 3 shrimp over a cup of broccoli with scampi sauce over both, & of course mushrooms. Mommy likes mushrooms with every thing. Anyway she said it was good. Me? I just had the 3 shrimp alone, & then some dinner. I wanted more shrimp, Mommy said "all gone", that means no! emoticon But I still wanted MORE! But, I guess I'll be happy with 3 - until next time. I saw her put some back in the freezer! emoticon

Hi Tara & April,

Glad to hear that you visited your human Dad, Tara. But I hope he can come home soon.
Fall is here, in Olive Branch, sort of, not a nippy Fall, but, not the sweltering hot of a few weeks ago . Today it was in the upper 70's. Kittylicious! Not to hot or cold. Mom had company this afternoon, she left the front door open so I could come in & out. I mostly stayed on the front porch for about an hour! But, Mom says that it will likely be Dec. before I can see her breath. For now mom still runs the A.C. a lot & her ceiling fan 24/7.

MEOW!
LingLing

Hi, April and LingLing! I dunno if fall's come by you, but it's here in Virginia. Until today, the weather's been poodelicious. A little nippy for the humans--I saw my human's breath a couple of mornings, but I'm in pretty full fur, so it's great. Only trouble was a bit in my tummy, which led to poopie problems. My human said it was more serious than Frost's dingleberries cuz he hasn't figured out the butt scoot. So he got his butt fur trimmed, but I had to wait in the car while he and my human visited dad and the folks at the rehab center. Until today.

I still could got to some pet blessings over the weekend, which might've helped and certainly didn't hurt or taste bad like the pink stuff she squirted into my mouth Saturday. Anyhow, Frost barked at the other dogs at first, until he got a laptime time out. He doesn't like them much, but I think they're great. So at one pet blessing in Arlington, my human asked the lady sitting next to her to hold Frost and I got quality laptime--at least until my human started bouncing and singing with the hymns. She said this was the church that had the zumba once, but it moved somewhere. Noone can find it, I figure, so they try to boogie with the hymns. The next day, at our regular church, me and Frost both tried to do laptime while my human was standing, but got put down and told to wait. We saw a black kitty with his senior black lab pal, and a couple more kitties in carrier cage things, but otherwise it was all pups, including one grey poodle, Zeus the bichon poster boy for the event (I told Frost we'd met before), and a few tzus, cockapoos, jack russells (they did get into a barkfest with Frost)....

Today as the drizzle started, my human took us to the Gunston place and I was sad, since it was one of my last walks with Chloe. The garden's changed a bit, and my human noticed they added rosemary. She also talked with a lady excavating some former slave quarters or something. Me, I let her take a couple of pictures, nibbled some grass, and then gave her the let's go sign.

By the way, at the rehab place, a bunch of people were talking about a 60 minutes show about smart dogs that my human didn't watch. She said we could watch it on the computer soon, but I'm not holding my breath. Anyone else seen it?

Wags,

Tara.

Hi April,

I agree, memories like you described are good memories. I only hope that in my life, I can meet someone who can leave me with good memories, years from now. I'm sorry I never got to meet BooBoo.
No, I guess it's not Fall whether every day yet, but at least it's not 90 degrees for a week @ a time anymore. Mostly it's a little cooler. The weather, this weekend could even be a little cool. (Good Sleeping Whether)

Well, I'm off to enjoy it.
MEOW,
LingLing

Hi LingLing!!!! Wag Wag!! Yes your brother BooBoo was the utmost Southern Gentleman! He was my boyfriend you know!! (blush) He was no rude butt sniffer either!! When Mommy would go to Birmingham to take your Mommy to the store, BooBoo would stay in the car with us. Mommy would sing to us and we would both get on her tummy and she would sing us to sleep! Good memories! I miss BooBoo and Mommy does too. he was so gentle. He would even let me have the first bites out of his dinner bowl.

Well Mommy says she can't tell it's fall yet cause it was 90 degrees yesterday!! emoticon This weekend it's going to be nice and cool though!

Well time to go back to nappys house!!

Love
April

Hi April & Tara,
I've never been in a nursing home, but mom said she used to bring BooBoo to one in B'ham, twice a week for several years. Mom said that BooBoo was well socialized & also very well behaved, he loved people & was so self assured, but gentle with them. But, she told me that kitties don't go to nursing homes, but if they did, I would be a purrfect choice 'cause I love attention & I love to cuddle!
Yaa! October emoticon emoticon is here, and the weather has been kittylicious. The sticky, hot summer days a gone for another year. But, after supper on Halloween, mommy has to put me in our room & shut the door. If I am in the living room & she opens the door, I will run out!! Hope you enjoy all the attention girls.

MEOW!,
LingLing

Hi Tara & LingLing!!! Wag Wag!

Boy your have been having some good adventures and getting lots of love Tara! Mom used to take me to the senior home here but i didn't want to sit in anyone's lap cause Mommy might leave me!!! that's what I thought anyway. but now I realize that was wrong.

I'm sorry about your human being in rehab. Mommy thought she might have to go to rehab after her neck surgery but she didn't!! I'm sooo glad!

LingLing I didn't know your Mommy could crochet! My Mommy does it some too!

Well it's supper time I gotta go watch for food to drop!!!

Love,

Hi, April and LingLing! You sound like you're having fun with crock pots. My human use to to crock pot stuff. It smelled so good!

Me and Frost are recovering from yesterday, not that anything bad happened. We went to the rehab place twice, spreading our messages of cuteness and LOVE! Actually, that's kinda why I haven't been online lots. My human says Dad has to get stronger so he can walk up the stairs again, that's why he's at the rehab place. Meantime, we visit him every day, and he gives us cuddles and treats. My human laughs and says that's his occupational therapy, whatever that is.

The place has four whole halls with doors and older humans there with walking problems and stuff. Well, they love to see us, and we're not about to let our admirers stay lonely. Nope. The second day we met a tzu named Mango who's really experienced at meeting people there, though he's not there every day. Yesterday we met another pup saying hi to one of his humans. Trouble is, I kinda forgot her name, cuz we met so many pups yesterday.

Well, the weather here was totally poodelicious, and there was a reunion at the shelter where Frost and Chloe came from. So we drove there and hung out, keeping our tails high, sitting polite-like when our human said we'd get treats for good behavior, and watching all the other humans and pups. My human said there were more than 100 of each, and no, we didn't let the big dogs sniff our butts. Me met several poodles and doodles, including a bichipoo who got some blue stuff in his head fur and had to wear a costume. Two black toy poodles wore dresses too--those were the only smallpups that Frost barked at, apart from a young rhodesian ridgeback who was getting just a little too fresh with me.

When we got back to the rehab center, my human showed her photos to the younger human with that pup whose name I forgot, and she wondered why they weren't invited, cuz she came from that same shelter five years ago. Me, I dunno. I do know we met lots and lots of people and pups, so I needed a teensy break today after we visited dad in the morning. plus, it almost feels like its' gonna rain.

Anyhow, great to hear from you again online. And a great big invite for any pups who might be reading and lurking --come on, we'd love to hear your yips or barks...

Wags to all,

Tara.

Now that our mommies both have new oval crockpots, maybe they will make something good to eat. I know that my mommy plans to cook a small whole chicken, & she found some cat food recipes on line. Oh boy, I smell a feast coming!
Today mommy crocheted all day. She is making an afghan for her bed & is about 1/2 finished. She could not find any more skein in the color she is using, (Bikini) so a friend brought her 6 of them!(mom made her a large, ruffled doily out of a Mexicana, a variegated skein, it is red, blue, purple,& yellow. (Bikini is a more pastel version. Yellow, orange, pink, teal, blue & green.)

Meow!,

Mommy says she is tired of doctors for awhile. Although she does need some appointments like for a mammogram (whatever that is!).

It's very late so I have to go for now!

By the time mommy got ready, her ride was here. And when she got home, she crochet a little then wen to sleep. But, mommy did get me some" Carry Outs " for me. As you would say April, "they are yummy to my tummy! Mommy also bought a large candle that smells like Candied Caramel Pecan! Yum! I could just eat it up! But mom said it would not taste good.
Tomorrow, Mom goes to an OBGYN (whatever that is) in a place far away called Clarksdale, MS. Maybe she can get some Carry Outs for herself there.

Hi Ling Ling & Tara! Wag Wag Wag!!! Yep Mommy got her staples out but she still has to wear that big old neck brace. She doesn't have very much pain and is feeling better. Her dr. told her top walk as much as she can so that means I get lots of Poodle adventures! we went to the park to walk yesterday and there were ducks there bigger than me! YIKES!! but it was fun.

Today Mommy goes to church. One of the Grandy's is here helping Mommy out but I think she goes home tomorrow. I love the Grandys! we grew up together!

Well time to go out for my business and to read some pee mail

Later friends!

Hi Tara emoticon & April,

Did your mommy get her staples out, April? I'll bet that feels better!

Tara, so glad that Frost found a new friend. How about you, did you make any new friends?


MEOW,
LingLing

Golly, April and LingLing, you stay up really late, so no wonder you have the munchies! LOL! Actually, I get them too, around 11 or midnight, so if my human fell asleep, I try to gently remind her that it's chickie snack time, though sometimes she doesn't wake up til I bark. I haven't tried the mini marshmallows yet, but they sound delish. And I hope April's human got her staples out nicely.

Anyhow, I had some quality lap time with dad today. Frost met a new pal, who I was a little surprised he didn't bark at. His new friend's name is Tony, but it's not uncle Tony in Chicago but a human from Alexandria whose big dog went to the rainbow bridge a few months ago. He's in the rehab place with dad, cuz dad's legs got tired when he was in the hospital and he has trouble getting into and out of the car to go to important places like Ikea. Well, Frost and I got lots of admirers in the rehab place, which was OK. We haven't trained the humans to give us treats yet, just petting and cuddles for now til we get too hot.

Wags,

Tara.

Hi April,

So sorry to hear that your mommy had to check back into the Hospital. But I'm glad she is better now! emoticon emoticon .

I'll bet you did enjoy the cat treats. I love them to, & mommy gives them to me everyday. I wonder what poodle treats taste like? Maybe I'll ask mommy to get me some nice soft, small, Carry Outs. When mom makes Som'Oah's she gives me mini marshmallow's, & I love them!

Kitty prayers & kisses for Aunt Mary,

LingLing
