Just a quiet day

My dad is home and I love it when he's home cause he plays 'real' tug with me, not that whimpy tug mom plays.....but real rough and ready tugging, something I can really get my teeth into. I will even do pretend growls occasionally when tugging with the dad. First of all we went out in the garden for a game of 'skitchum' that is dad tries to catch me but I zoom around so fast I am just a blur. Even on high speed, that is all mom could get, was me blurring past her. Then it was tug time but I was kind of puffed from all that zooming around so I didn't really have enough energy left for some serious tugging. It was still lots of fun and anytime I get to spend with my dad I just love. This week he won't be traveling (yippeeeee) so I will be waiting every night at the door at 5 o'clock. Mom says it is because I hear his car coming at the end of the street........but it's doggie magic.......I just KNOW when my dad is coming home! I bet you guys know when your moms and dads are coming home too!!!! It's a gift we four paws have. The only other news is that mom is still a bit concerned about my itching, it seemed to have settled down and then last night I was having a scratching frenzy. Mom had to get up at 2 am and put that icky spray on my legs. It worked though and I went back to sleep. Of coarse mom was wide awake then and couldn't get back to sleep so she did some work instead and is rather tired this morning. It's odd how I can go to sleep anytime but the mom can't. Maybe she needs to try sleeping on the cool floor like I do!!!! I am off to so if dad is up for some more tugging.....hope you all enjoy your weekend.


  1. I love to tug too and I also growl like I mean business, but of course I don't! Sorry to hear you are still itchy - it must be an allergy, don't you think?

  2. Mom agrees and we are going back to see Dr Neala (sigh.....she is so nice) on Tuesday. Dad bathed all my feet and sprayed them with the spray and it helps a lot...but only lasts a few hours. Mom is beginning to think it might be something in my garden.

  3. We are doing fine. It is good to know your Dad is back and you are doing fine.
