Mom drove to Myrtle Beach, SC on Friday for Aunt Regina's funeral. Dad had to stay home and work so we stayed with him to "supervise" That is the LAST TIME we do that- yes, Dad fed us, butttttt FORGOT our treats!!!! He and Mom made a special trip the day before to stock up for the weekend- both two legger and four legger foods and treats (Dad is not allowed to be in the Mom cave unless he is using the microwave). Mom called lots each day and she promised to bring us a special surprise if we were good!!!! We were all very clingy while Mom was gone- Dad had lots of licks and lap time with us. We tried not to leave puddles and presents, but we forgot.
Mom stayed away Friday and Saturday and Sunday- she has NEVER been away from us before at all.She got home last night about 7 (telling us that she HATES WV- there was cat crap nonsense only half an hour into the state that caused her to be over two hours late for dachsie time- no it was NOT the mine expolsion- that happened after Mom was in Ohio) She did tell us that she drove by Frankie's place off of I-77 going down and back, so we knew that he was guarding her in southeastern Ohio.
Mom was so tired, she almost fell asleep in her rocker on the front porch. Since Dad had made Papa John's pizza and buffalo wings for diner, we had to help Mom eat hers. Then we went to bed about 8:30, after Mom took a shower. Don't tell her, but she snores!!!!
We were so glad she was back- Thai and Ginger licked her and Chip slept next to her. WE got up at 8 this morning- Mom was too tired to go to Mass and then the pool. Tomorrow we go back to our schedules. Mom may take us to the doggie park today though, to make up for abandoning us.
AND- we have a dachshund spa from WalMart!!!!! Mom will take pictures later, but it is 10 feet by 6 feet and 22 inches deep. Dad has to blow it up with a pump.
(And yes, Mom misses Aunt Regina- she is still sad and cries when she thinks no one is looking)
