Another Update

Phew - I have been so busy looking after my mom. I have even been letting her have the occasional cuddles (and you all know I am not a cuddly dog except with my dad) I have also been really practicing "THE LOOK" That big soft brown eyes saying 'yes I understand mom, I'm here, pat my head and you will feel better' and I follow mom everywhere just to make sure nothing happens her - mom thinks me wanting to go to bathroom with her is a bit much though....but I was reading that is where most falls occur so I am sticking to my paws on this one. Mom had a pretty good today and we even played a little 'chase the red dot light' game. She can just relax in her rocking chair and shine it up and down the passage way for me chase. I did try getting her to play tuggie or throw and bought EVERY single toy from my box and put around her feet, but she wasn't too interested in that at the moment. I am sure a good game of tuggie would make her feel better. Of coarse there are some hidden benefits to mom not feeling well - the pain medication makes her a 'little fuzzy headed' as she says and yesterday she forgot I had breakfast and I got it twice!!!! "She who is never seen seen" fed me and then an hour later dad fed me too - woofitty woof - was that good! Dad had asked mom if I had breakfast but she couldn't remember. Hopefully in a few days we will be able to visit some out buddies blogs, we miss you lots and miss what is happening in your big dog houses.



  1. Glad to know your mom is doing a little better each day, Reilly! Sounds like you are just taking the best care of her. And what a big bonus for you getting two breakfasts!!! But you deserved it after all the hard work you are doing!

  2. Glad to hear that your Mom is doing a little better...thanks to you who is taking so good care of her. After all your hard work nursing your Mom your deserve an extra breakfast :o)


  3. Two breakfasts!!! Martha would just love that!
    Glad your mom is doing a bit better but we know she will still be a bit sore for games.
    We liked the sound of chasing the red dot!
    Good work with the cuddles - we know humans like them!
    Get well soon mom.

  4. Two breakfasts! Way to go Reilly! I wouldn't let on! Katie gets two lunches on occasion and her Mom isn't even on any medication!

    Keep up the good work! Recovering Moms need to be watched every minute, it's a tough job, but you're dog enough to do it!

  5. Ugh it's so icky when the Mums are sick! I hope she feels better lots soon!

  6. Two breakies sounds like a good thing to us!
    We're glad to hear that you're taking such good care of your mom, Reilly!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch
