We were woefully neglected ALL weekend! We probably only got about 60% of their attention during the whole time!
Friday, we got to go into Mimi’s house and play with Kody Bear for several hours and then, when his cousins got there, they all took off and left us there while they went to dinner for Mick’s birthday… (KB’s dad and Grammy & Papa’s son)
And, they DIDN’T EVEN BRING SOME BACK FOR US! Sure, we got some Doggy Treats and Jerky, but no Fajitas or tortillas… not even a bean or some rice!
Saturday, after we had breakfast with Grammy and Papa, Grammy took me and Dott, and left the rest with Papa while Robert took her into town to go with Mimi to a Baby Shower. It was for Kody’s new sister that is supposed to show up in a month or two. Don’t know HOW they gave her a shower if she isn’t even here yet!? Dott and I had to stay at Mimi’s house.
At that other house, Grammy saw a really rare dog that she says was HUGE! He weighs about 160 lbs. already and he isn’t even a year old yet. Grammy said he looked sort of like someone took a HUGE Great Dane and put a BIG Pit Bull head on it. She looked them up and those are two of the breeds that were used in “making” this breed of dog that is used to hunt big game and cougars. His name is “Ocho” and he is an Argentinean Dogo. She got a picture of him on a Queen Sized bed, and he makes the bed look small.
He was all white and they told her that he has to have sunscreen put on him so he doesn’t burn, but he plays in their BIG people pool all the time. Can you IMAGINE… she went and visited ANOTHER dog!
Then, Papa went and picked up Grammy and they went to a Horse Spit All to visit with Papa’s sister before her serge jury. I guess they DID think about us a little, because they stopped by and got us some more jerky treats on the way home.
While Papa was holding Pippin that evening, they noticed that he had somehow gotten a rip in his skin beside where he used to keep his nards, so Grammy cleaned and doctored that. It doesn’t seem to be bothering him, but he is taking antibiotics and they are keeping an eye on it. Papa says he might have gotten it when he ran next door and attacked the neighbor dogs by his little self. He still seems to feel that one extra-small corgi should be able to take down THREE big Australian Shepherds!
On Sunday, after giving BG, me, Gimli and Pippin our medicines and treatments, we went into town for them to go to church and then had some lunch at Mimi’s. They checked by phone, on Papa’s sister, and she had all her kids there and was out of that surge jury place. She still has to stay at the Horse Spit All for ten more days at least, they said. She still needs a lots of prayer, Grammy says, and she also said to tell everyone “Thank You so much for the prayers you have all been saying for her.”
They came home fairly early, but did they play with us then? NO! Grammy took a nap and Papa read a new book Mimi had gotten for him! BG, Gimli and I went in with Grammy and took a nap too, while Pippin stayed out with his Papa.
At least they shared a little of their fruit (cantaloupe, watermelon and Honeydew Melon) and toasted cheese sandwiches with us for dinner…
