Some Sad news

Our friend, Buddy, has cancer. It is bone cancer and it has spread. Please, please visit him and send some love to him and his mom! Buddy has worked as a therapy dog. Boy, will he be missed!!

This is as close as my mom's gotten to a picture of my Elvis impression! Don't blink, you'll miss the right side of my snout lifting up. huhuhuhuhuh.

More sad news: my mom is hitting the road again. She is leaving to visit her brother. She and her mom are going to visit places of Frank Lloyd Wright. I'd be happier if she'd just do this new human thing of STAYCATION!! Sit! Stay, Mom! Oh, rats, she's as bad as a beagle at listening...Food! Food! Well, that got her attention but she's till packing.

I'll be back online next week. Bye everyone ! Don't forget us!
