Meet The Prince and The Princess
I named the little girl, Princess Penelope. She is sitting on the top of the steps. The little boy is named Prince Petey. Remember the little dog in the show, The Rascals? He was named Petey and that's who he reminded me of. Buttercup, their mother is on the left hand side.. As you can see, the puppies have grown quite a bit. They aren't as big as their mother. Everyone got baths yesterday, and Penelope and Buttercup are now in need of haircuts. As soon as my arm can hold the clippers, we will take care of that.
"Hello. My mommy calls me a Princess because I am the sweetest of the bunch. I am pretty quiet and love to sit on mommy's lap. I would sit there all day if she let me, but sometimes she has to work. Sometimes I do things I am not supposed to, but my brother Petey usually starts it. I just follow his lead. My mommy treats me really special. She bought these stairs just for me because I was the only one who couldn't get up on the bed by myself. She would always have to lift me up several times during the night. Now I can just walk up, and I don't have to wake her. My favorite thing to do is nuzzle in mommy's neck in the morning. It's my special way to wake her up and say good morning." (Penelope)
"Hi my name is Petey, but mommy says I am trouble with a capital T. I can't help it. I was born this way. I am very strong willed and I want things to be my way ALL THE TIME. Mommy yells at me the most. I don't mind. I'm getting used to it. It goes in one ear and out the other. What's that saying, boys will be boys? That's me. I can be sweet, too. I like cuddling with mommy. I sleep with her every night, too. I prefer to be under the covers. I feel safer there." (Petey)
"Did someone make a smart remark about me sleeping with mommy. I hope not. Don't forget my nickname is Trouble. So where were we? Oh yeah, my favorite thing to do is get up on mommy's bed (I was the only puppy able to get up by myself, even when I was only two months old), run to the end, and jump off onto my doggy mommy's head. LOL! My doggy mommy gets mad and we start fighting. I LOVE IT! Then I run and get on the bed and do it all over again. The other thing I LOVE doing is annoying uncle Bruce. He's so stuck up. I just have to try to knock him off his pedestal. Sometimes he chases me, but I'm much faster than he is. As a matter of fact, I overheard mommy saying she wants to put me in some doggy races. I will smoke those jokers!" (Petey)
"Can you believe how big my kids have gotten? They are almost bigger than I am. And they are always trying to play fight me. I have to show them who's boss. They may be young, but I still have some good take down moves. On another note, I'm happy mommy decided to keep them. It's nice having them around to play with. My favorite time is running around outside with them. That Petey is pretty fast. I get all teary eyed thinking were we would all be if mommy hadn't taken me off the streets when she did. I was sleeping outside and getting fed pretty irregularly. Now, I get to sleep right next to mommy, and not only do me and my kids get food a few times a day, but we get treats, too. Thank you, mommy! We love you." (Buttercup)
"I just don't understand how my life changed in an instant. I was here all by myself. Enjoying life. Not having to share a thing. Then there was Buttercup. Now there are two more. What in the doggy biscuits is going on? Actually it's not all terrible. I actually like Buttercup. Sometimes she and I snuggle, but mommy is always like, "Bruce, move." Really? Shouldn't I reap some benefits from sharing my food and my toys? Speaking of toys, those little numb skulls have torn up all my toys! I always kept my toys in good condition. Now my bunny has no stuffing, no eyes, and his ears are ripped. I liked it when it was just me and mommy, but I'd probably be lonely if they all left now. Mommy does make sure I have a lot of mommy and me time. I get to ride in the car with mommy all by myself. Those are my absolute favorite times." (Bruce)
So that's my new family. They keep me on my toes, but they keep a smile on my face, too.
As of yesterday, I am doing better. My arm is still only functioning at about 35%, but it was a lot worse. I will be posting the second part of the bridal shop story tomorrow,, and the Halle/Diego post before the weekend is out. I am also in the process of making new things for my Etsy store It's my plan to add new food and new furniture in the coming weeks. With the new additions to the family, comes added expenses. So it's back to the grindstone. I will be catching up on blog reading in the next couple of days.
