Happy All Saints Day!

Today is the Feast Day of All Saints- a Holy Day of Obligation for all Catholics.  WHN and Dad will be making their way to Mass tonight.

We had a blast for Halloween- we all had costumes and wore them!  (OK, Hope and Anna  wore theirs for more than an hour, but Tasha, Chip and Snoopy managed to strip very quickly)  Tasha and Anna were the world's most beautiful cheerleaders, Chip was a Rufferee, and Snoopy and Hope were pirates.  Hope is still in her costume too, complete with glow in the dark writing on it that states Trick ARRR treat!  Dad was the Dachs Commander, complete with beard and bandanna.  This was Snoopy, Anna, and Hope's first Halloween with the DWM and WHN did manage to get some photos and will post them over the weekend.  It had rained for the past two days and yesterday it poured, but we still had a lot of visitors.  Dad set up on the porch with his fog machine and strobe lights, and his music- the kids loved what he had for them. WHN bought too much candy and hopes that she can return the unopened bags.  We lucked out- we slept through the worst of the crowds but were rewarded with chicken nuggets for dinner! 

We know that we have not been blogging regularly- we are owned by WHN after all! While we have not been present, we have mourned the passing of our beloved friends- Quinn, Nuka, Pip, Gracie and Benny being the most recent losses.

HOWEVER, we do have a real excuse and it is NOT due to WHN's depression  (ok, not totally)- Remember when she "fell" back in August?  Apparently, she tore the meniscus tendon in her right knee and will be undergoing surgery to repair it this coming Thursday.  It is outpatient surgery and she will be home that night and she should recuperate quickly.  How this affects us we have not yet determined but our nap and snack schedules had better not be changed- we get cranky if that happens and Hope is very fussy about her needs and wants.  She practically lives under WHN's shirt- and in the sling no less!  This makes taking care of the rest of the DWM challenging- Chip is still not a fan but the girls are very good with her, especially Anna, and Snoopy is Snoopy!   He likes her but is very cautious.  He too is now on "happy pills" and will be treated by an animal behaviorist starting November 15th- his aggression is starting to get the better of him so we are going to take care of the Snoopster. He and WHN take their "happy pills" together every morning- part of our routine. 

WHN will be very busy this weekend getting placemats done before her surgery- then once she is fully recuperated the Slimmer Pugs stockings and the family Christmas gifts get done!  AND she has tons of tea lights for Paws 2 People to make too- Hopefully this surgery is the last of the medical issues for WHN this year- we need a break!

Oh NO not surgery! Please keep my Mommy posted on how you are doing.

Sometime it's hard to get to blogging here too. Taking care of Grandpa Bob is a real challenge. Butt he is our furst priority.

We're sorry to hear that Snoopy is now taking happy pills, but we love a happy Snoopy and that is most important.

Mommy has a busy day ahead of her today. Visiting Nurse comes today to exercise with Grandpa Bob, we have to start organizing stuff for Florida (in anticipation of hopefully leaving NY in 3 weeks) and a whole bunch of other stuffs.

We hope you have a GREAT day!

We can't believe that nobody has commented on the worst news of all!!! You are going to return unopened candy!!! Our momma says that just is not right! BOL!!! She buys Halloween candy even though she knows we will never get anybody coming to our door.

On a more serious note, we sure hope WHN's surgery is a complete success and that she will return to her proper servant duties to the DWM in no time. We will keep our paws crossed that all goes well on Thursday.

Our Lady had that surgery 2 times and says as long as they don't need to take fat pad, she will be up dancing in a few days and it shouldn't really effect your life too much (although she may want to cuddle more which can be annoying). Wishing her a speedy recovery. Lee and Phod
