Monday Mischief: Visiting Grammie

Mom took me on a special trip to visit Grammie in the nursing home.

I think she and I were both a little nervous at first since I had never seen a wheelchair before and the floors were slippery.

  

But once I got the hang of it, I only wanted to be in her lap.

Grammie was really happy to see me and I think that maybe I should visit her regularly from now on.

This trip wore me out, so I was kind of glad when Mom said it was time to go home. I slept all the way.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

4.19.13 Follow Up Friday: A Week Of Sadness

As you know last week, K8’s friend died in a car crash.  He was a volunteer fire fighter and there will be a full-out fireman’s funeral for him this Saturday.  It is very sad to lose a young promising person.  I find it so hard when you must wait to bury the dead.  I like the Jewish tradition where the deceased is laid to rest within 24 hours (where possible).  It is just hard on the loved ones.  We had to wait a month between when my father-in-law died and when he was interred because it was a military burial at Arlington Cemetery, that was endless sorrow.  Anyway, this weekend, hopefully, K8 and Tyler’s family and friends can move on with the rest of their lives.

Noel stretch 2

Everyone enjoyed exercising on Saturday with Noel.  Even some of the dog bloggers stretched with her.

Monday was the terrible day of the Boston Marathon Bombing.  But we did not know that yet, so we were definitely doing Mischief, which is our Monday way.   We were playing hide and seek down by the water.  Sofie discovered she could hide in the sand by the picnic tables.  The osprey did not like us being so close and were squawking at us.  Mom made us pose for yet another picture, because she liked the spring flowers.

On Tuesday. Mom answered an interested question for a friend about dogs eating cat litter.  Many people, even Mom, did not know how dangerous cat litter could be to the inside of dogs.  We are glad that everyone learned something from the question.

By Wednesday, the dogs were so exhausted all they wanted to do was sleep on the couch.  They are great snoozers.  Many people mentioned that it’s definitely a ‘dogs life’ around this house.  There is always a lot of sleeping going on between frantic walks and tug of war.  Oh yes, and the occasional cat chase, which is not supposed to go on, but Sofie and Nine seem to ignore the rules.

This Thursday, we wanted to show our gratitude for all the people who have helped us in our lives, and for those that helped in Boston and now also in the Fertilizer Factory Fire in Texas. People really connected with the quote by the late ‘Fred Rogers,’ on ‘finding the helpers.’  I was so glad to see that dogs are getting into the help act.  Look at these beauties that just arrived in Boston to help the wounded.  Please check out their K9-Parish Comfort Dogs Facebook page

That’s it for the week. Thanks for playing and praying along with us.
