I'm so lucky to have so many furiends!

I was able to sneak into an office at the convent to "borrow" a computer.  It seems the 2 head nuns went to a Kansas City Royals game today and had some "apple juice". 

I'm not sure how they actually made it back to the convent but it didn't take long before I saw this:

I'm beginning to wonder how living in the 
Holy Sacred Lady of our Sorrow Pet Convent 
is going to turn out for me with these 2 nuns in charge.  

I am heartbroken after telling Stanley to move on without me. Heartbroken Taffy in a convent does not equal fun.

Oh, no!  
I hear one of the nuns coming!  
Gotta go!
I miss you all!

A Note From Taffy's Mom

First of all, I apologize for being terrible about keeping up Taffy's blog.  Those of you who have been long time readers may remember that my mom has Leukemia and had been in remission.  About 6 weeks ago, she came out of remission and has started chemo treatments again.  She is on a 28 day cycle where she gets chemo 10 days in a row, then gets a break for 18 days, and then she starts over.  She will end her second round of chemo tomorrow.  Taffy's daddy and I have been helping her as much as we can and taking her to her treatments when we are available.  We would appreciate lots of POTP and prayers for her.  

This is Taffy's daddy, Taffy, and my mom from earlier this summer, before her Leukemia came out of remission.

Another thing some long time readers might remember is that my mom was looking for a doxie to adopt. 
 She found a sweet girl named Zoe.  

Zoe has been really good for my mom.
Sorry it has taken me so long to introduce her to you.

Now, about Taffy.....
Her dad was worried that she was getting too hung up on Stanley and becoming a little too "Worldly".  You know how pawtective he is of his little girl.  Well, he became so concerned that he sent her to a convent that is outside the city limits of Blogville.

I know she illegally contacted Stanley recently and gave him the horrible news.  I hope her daddy doesn't make her stay long (although the illegal note to Stanley won't help).  
I really miss her!

Happy Birthday, Twix!

Today is my baby girl's birthday.  She was born June 20, 1999.  For those of you who knew Twix, it will be no surprise to you that she was born on Father's Day.  In honor of Twix's birthday, I wanted to share a few of my favorite photos.  

This picture makes me laugh!  She was always wanting whatever was being eaten, in this case it was an orange.

Twix loved to sun herself and always looked so cute doing it!

Such a sweet face! 

Sometimes it was hard to turn her down when she begged. 

If you got outta line, she wasn't shy about letting you know.

She always looked so peaceful when sunning herself.

My number one favorite photo!

And now, some news from Taffy.....

Ok, I know I told you guys I was gonna get my mom to do her real job and help me more. As you can tell, that hasn't worked out very well yet.  However, Mom and Dad finally upgraded to smart phones this week!  Mom says it has been hard since she can no longer upload photos from her camera or memory card to the laptop.  She had to remember to take her memory card to work, upload the pics on her work computer, email them home, and them save them on the laptop.  Apparently, that is a lot of work and a big pain.  Now that she has a smart phone she can take pics with it and upload them so it should be a lot easier for her.  She is trying to learn how to use it but she is a slow learner!  So, we should be able to be around more fairly soon.

We have an exciting day planned on Sunday.  I'm not giving out details yet but I did spend the day at the spa yesterday.

I also had my nails painted royal blue!

I've got a busy weekend planned but, as I said, once Mom learns her phone we should be around a lot more.  Actually, that should be IF Mom learns her phone.  She is feeling like quite a doofus with it right now!

Wordless Wednesday.....Not Really

I have to apologize to my Blogville Furiends!  
Well, actually, my mom should be doing the apologizing but....well, you know how that goes.

I just don't know what more I can do with this woman.  She is the biggest slacker I've ever seen and no amount of dog treats seem to motivate her.  Can any of you give me any suggestions for getting this woman off her rear?  Or at least get her to stop doing so much online shopping?

I miss seeing you guys and reading about all your adventures.  Of course, I especially miss seeing my main Dood, Stanley, the most!  Hopefully, we will be around to visit everyone soon but it will take a bit for us to catch up!

In memory of all the soldiers (human and canine) 
who have given their lives for my freedom.

Blogville Date Day

 I am, of course, going with my main man, Stanley.  
We are double dating with Ruby and Murphy.
I think Stanley's mom expects us to keep those two in line.
It is quite the challenge....as most of you know!

In preparation for Date Day, I entered my special 
Blogville Time Warp and headed to Ruby's house.

Ruby was quite nervous when I arrived and asked me to share a drink with her to calm her nerves.  In the time it took me to sip on one of those, she polished off the rest of them.

I soon realized why she was so nervous.....

Taffy:  "No, Ruby, I do not think that is the best thing for you to wear on our double date."
Ruby:  "Why not?  I love bubbles!"
Taffy:  "Well, first of all, Murphy's mom would never let him leave the house with you dressed like that."
Ruby:  "I think I look pretty."
Taffy:  "You look gorgeous!  I'd give anything to have your figure"
Ruby:  "Well then, what's the problem?"
Taffy:  "Uh, you uh, look a little ummm, uhhh, oh, how do I say this?"
Ruby:  "?????"
Taffy:  "That outfit is a little revealing!"  
(That was a nice way to say that, right?)
Ruby:  "Oh!  Got it!"
Taffy:  "Besides, if I know Stanley, he and Murphy will have a lot of activities planned with some romance mixed in."

Once we got that worked out, Ruby was much more relaxed (or was that the drinks that relaxed her?).
We waited in her front yard for the boys to pick us up in their pup copter.

We are off on our wonderful dates!

New Spring Grass

I love new grass in the spring!
I find that it is perfect for 2 of my favorite activities.

Roaching and eating!
I am an expert at both!
