This and that

Mom finished another painting of a sweet angel who recently crossed the rainbow bridge- This is Shawn and she was a pretty little sheltie girl. Mom says she looked liked a little Teddy Bear.

Mom was off having a CT scan today....for the last week she been having terrible pain around the wound site of her surgery. She thinks she has torn some muscle but Dad thinks she may have cracked a rib (Mom has brittle bones so it can  happen when she sneezes). We will wait and see what the scan shows but paws crossed there is not another abscess there causing the pain.

Mom has also caught up on all her paintings now so is is twiddling her paws and complaining about being bored. We told her she can take us for walkies but she isn't up to doing that at the moment. Remember to check our store  http://cowspotdogs.com/ and remember too we now have gift certificates as well. We got some printed through vista-print and they are very professional looking.

We also want to say a HUGE thank you to Hoke and Shane for our Christmas Gift Exchange. We sent ours to you yesterday so you should get it by the end of the week.  Mean Mean MEAN OLD Mom won't let us open it until Christmas which is TOTALLY sooooooo not fair! At least I got to give it a good sniffing over - Dweeb was just too scared to go near it and stood behind the chair barking at it!
Christmas Card Count

  1. Well we sure hopes your mom gets good news through that cat scan and it is not anything serious...this is an example of my moms old bones, she fell off of dads motorcycle and it wasn't even moving and she broke 7 bones, she never got back on it again...do you think our moms r related?

  12. Cant believe u cant open the present till Christmas. So not fair. She should give u extra cookies in the meantime for making u wait.

  13. Well, none of those options sounds very good for Mom. We hope it is something very minor that will go away quickly.

    We haven't had many walks lately either as Mom's back is bothering her a lot:( And now we are headed into some very cold weather - she doesn't like the cold but we sure do.
