Sunday at home

We appreciate all the kind words from our friends. It helps so much with the terrible pain of losing such a sweet little boy. I am helping my mom, too. Today I stayed outside with her in the yard and the warm sunshine.
Here I am in the yard in my favorite place--the Dead Tredmill--keeping an eye on her.
Back inside the house, I decided to make her laugh with my Neck Gymnastics.



It worked! She laughed!! Especially this picture where I'm nose to nose with Mousse and she knows I don't like him!

Here are Belle and Bailey sleeping in what my mom called the Lima Bean position. They are two of the very old dogs we have here.

We are getting some puppies and a pretty girl named Rosie to foster. Pictures next time.

We are so very glad you are taking such good care of your mom. Our mom is still sad over Harry, her dear basset who died last summer.
Still we can always make her laugh and smile - we are proud to see you are doing the same.
We will look forward to seeing the pictures of Rosie and the puppies!!!
