FLIES!! Why did it have to be FLIES??

It's a cloudy, hot day in Georgia today so we're inside. My mom is working and watching the A-Team. She's on-call for computer problems so she can't go anywhere--she has to be at her computer to go into the network if needed so everyone can keep checking out books. We would not want check-out rage, she says.

Her pain is better today, thank goodness. All the kind posts from our furfriends really helped a lot. It's hard when a dr says, We'll assume it's cancer until proven otherwise. That was ruff but they proved it otherwise. I hope that means we can jump on her stomach again soon. Mousse is so good at that and he really misses it.

Here I am on the Big Chair while my mom is working and what happens?? Suddenly there's a fly! It even makes me fall off the chair at the end! And I STILL didn't catch it!

Glad your Mom is feeling better River. Give her a nose kiss for me please!

Booker the Treeing Walker said...

Checkout rage? LOL ... Booker has elevator rage! That's what we will call it. Don't ask. There is no rhyme or reason, because we do not have a nose like he does, but WHEW ... it's a doozy.

It looked like you were sooo close to catching that fly!! I LOVE to chase flying bugs in the yard.

Your mom has been through a lot these days. Please make sure you give her lots of exta kisses!!

The Mum here likes the A-Team too! She likes Face. : And the Muffit likes flies, he's really good at catching them! Maybe he can give you lessons.

Boy I feel sorry for that fly when you get him in your "jaws of life"! Your snap jaws look dangerous.

You all take such good care of your mommy. The good food helps too. Did you drive to get that food so mommy could stay home and rest. I bet you have a lead paw!!!

Thank you for coming by and support me in my time of drama! You are a true pal.

PeeSss....Your mommy looks like a collector (saver) of my hooman grandma is a collector of Airedales

Darn flies, they're so annoying. Tess goes nuts whenever there's a fly around.
We're glad your mum is feeling better River.


Cocoa the Beagle said...

Glad your mum is feeling better! My mum hates flies because she says that me and Barley jump on everywhere to try to 'catch' the flies. Everywhere, even on her tummy. We don't see any problem with that though!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Those nasty flies.. Louie goes spastic with them. He gets into this mode where he thinks they are on him all the time and he starts biting at himself. He was really tripping on Friday night so mom had to let him sit in her lap for some "Mom Time" to calm him down. Now that boy has some issues... I think he was just sucking up so he could be with mom..

That is such a cute picture of you! Thanks for stopping by and telling me how they kept cool in the good old days. Hopefully, the cool air will flow from the vents tomorrow. It's not easy for us pups in the south



Princess Eva and Brice said...

We couldn't watch the video. Momma won't watch anything with any form of a bug in it. Even flies.

Good to hear that your Mom is improving.
