My Weekend and Awards!

As everyone knows, Daddy had to work all weekend and I was home with Momma. I decided to take it easy for the long weekend; you know, cause I've been working so hard lately! ;0)
I napped for a while in this position while Mom cooked a turkey. Her first ever actually. Can you believe that? What kind of middle aged Mom has never cooked a turkey?
Then I decided to stretch out a bit while Mom did laundry. I used to get in the basket of clothes right after they came out of the dryer when I was a puppy. The dryer is in the basement and I don't like those stairs....you can see through them.....so I thought sunbathing would be a good alternative.
I decided to warm my backside a bit while Mom cleaned the bathrooms. She was in some strange sort of cleaning mode and I have learned it is best to stay outta her way when that happens. Also, in case any of you ever happen to visit.....do not make a mess in any room she has just cleaned! Consider yourself warned!
I was also hoping this position would keep her from waking me up every 20 minutes to take my picture. As you can tell, it did not work too well.
Mom made a German Chocolate cake for Dad and that got my attention. Actually, anytime she is in the kitchen gets my attention. She told me I couldn't have any and I was not at all happy about that!
After giving her the evil eye and some dirty looks I was so worn out I almost fell asleep sitting up. I was this close to falling asleep and she started giggling and woke me up. I didn't see anything funny here. I spent a lot of time this weekend watching her work and I was tired!
I decided I'd had enough, curled up, and drifted off to sleep to dream about German Chocolate Cake!
Needless to say, I had a pretty great Labor Day weekend!

And as a bonus, I have been given 2, count 'em, 2 awards!
The first one comes from my Chi buddy Lilibell. She is quite a cutie pie! Both Lilibell and her brother, Chewy, are even smaller than I am!
The award says, "Your blog is like a pearl, rare, delicate, and charming."
She gave this to me because I am a princess! I do not see any rules attached to this award but I am going to keep passing it on to even more princesses.
Ruby and Penny, DoDo and MoMo, Martha and Bailey, Sedona, Hailey, Abby
By the way Lilibell, knowing you had given me this award sure did speed my recovery. Thank you so much!

Then I received this award from another one of my Chi buddies, Cocorue. Coco is even smaller than Lilibell and she is another cutie pie!
I love my Chi friends! If you haven't been to either one of their blogs you don't know what you're missing out on. So, go ahead and stop by! Tell them Twix sent ya!
I didn't see any rules with this award either! I am passing this on to all the Princes out there!
Of course, first on my list is Baxter because he is MY Prince! And yes, Baxter, I will wear my new watermelon dress on our date as long as you pick me up in your new ride!
I would also like to give this award to Tank, Cloud, Buster.
Thank you so much for thinking of me, Coco, and for being my furiend!
It looks to me like most of you have these awards already and I tried to pick furiends that have not received them yet. If you haven't received them yet and I missed you I am truly sorry.

Twix, you had a great weekend. Lots of sleep and sunbathing, thats the life for us. I hate when Mommy makes a cake I can't eat, but I hope you got some turkey. I love turkey. Congratulations on your awards, you deserve them! Love you Twix

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Hi Twix,

That was sure a good relaxing weekend. Mommy was right you can't have the chocolate cake... remember your bout with food poisoning that cost mommy a hefty vet bill?

Licks, hero

Lorenza said...

Hi, Twix!
Cleaning mode on a Labor Day weekend?? Hmmm... interesting...
My mom's favorite is German chocolate cake! And she has not baked one in years!
I am sure the one your mom baked was delicious!
Too bad we can't taste it, right?
Kisses and hugs
Lorenza

chloejessica said...

Hey Twix! Your just like Chloe! She loves to sleep! And she loves to hide when she sees the camera! Glad you had a good weekend and I loved the stories! :)

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

Twix, it looks like you are a wonderful snoopervisor. What would Mom do without you?

XOXO
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

PS - Our Mom says she could use some help so if your Mom is still in the cleaning mode, just send her on over - and come with her - that way we could all snoopervise our Moms together.

Cole said...

That sounds like a fabulous weekend! Your momma got some very cute pictures of you!

Elizabeth said...

I am glad your mom finally learned how to make a turkey!
It is very important.
Because your Ancestors came from Germany, I bet you would like German chocolate cake but it would be bad for you tummy. Tell Mom to make vanilla kind.
This is Buster.
My MUM never did the DNA to find out what sort of dog I am.
She thinks maybe a bit of spaniel but I keep growing and growing.
Maybe I am a hound dog.
Hope you are well
lov from Buster

BRUTUS said...

Congrats on the awards! Looks like you certainly had an exhausting weekend, Twix! Since your mom made a turkey for labor day, is she going to do a cook-out on Thanksgiving BOL?? My mom has never made a turkey, so she's one up on our situation!!

Snorts-
Brutus the Frenchie

Tank said...

Hi Twix- my assistant has never made a turkey either and she's probably much older than your mom. The Old Guy has always cooked the turkey on Thanksgiving and Christmas, so she's just never had to. Congrats on your awards and thanks for passing one along to me!
Here are directions to the Arboretum:
Take 69 Hwy South to 179th St exit. Turn right (west) on 179th for about a mile or so. It will be on your left. If you'd ever like to meet out there, let me know. I could show you around!

kalyxcorn said...

so good to hear from you! too bad there's not enough room for two on that chair!! ;)

hugs,
B

Cocorue said...

hey Twix...yep no choc cake for you....but if you're fast like me, just nip the side and run before you're caught.......

sorry, as a good furiend, i should be a better influence than this.....or else your mumster and mine will not allow us to chat again

you're special that's why you're awarded, so just enjoy

The OP Pack said...

Hi Twix, we LOVE turkey. Our Mom makes it a lot because Dad loves it too. It does make us sleepy but nothing wrong with a good nap. Congrats on your awards.

Tail wags, the OP Pack

Tiffany and the Munchkins said...

Twix, it looks like you had a nice relaxing, sun-bathing weekend in your chair. Our Mom started out on a cleaning frenzy, but when Lexi got a booboo on her face, Mommy stopped. Thank doG!

Congrats on your awards. We also gave you an award. Swing by to check it out!

Chihuahua kisses,
The Munchkins

HI TWIX, I am soooo very glad that you are now feeling like supervising your mom while she does her work. She is soooo lucky to have you back in your proper role.
I just LOVE your chair. You really get some major milage out of it. That face you made at your mom was grrrreat. I might like to borrow it sometime to lay on MY mom.

The Army of Four said...

Congrats on the cool awards!
Sunbathing sounds great - but... could I come over for some turkey? And mom would like to have some of that German Chocolate Cake! (So would I, but my mom is really mean about "no chocolate for dogs" - sounds like yours is, too. Hrumph!)
Play bows,
Zim

Mochi and Mommy said...

I try to turn my back to hide from the flashie beast too! Why can't they leave us alone when we're trying to get some rest after we work so hard for them!

Congrats on your awards! You deserve them! :)

Madi and Mom said...

Hi Twix,
You are too cute.
It is hard to get a nap in I know...Mom did the same thing to me over the weekend...shots of me trying to sleep. I expect it will appear on the blog soon...me and my bed head.
Madi and Mom

Ruby and Penny said...

Hi Twix
We love the ears in pictures 5 & 6. Too cute.
Congrats on your awards and thanks for passing one to us.
Love Ruby & Penny

sadermaxx said...

Hi Twix!
Ok, so your saying that the evil eye doesn't always work for you either. I hav to tell Sadie that shes not the only one.

Bijou said...

Turkey in September! Mom only gives us that yummy bird at Thanksgiving. You sure picked the right spot to take a nap while your mom worked. Congrats on the awards!

Wags & wiggles,
Bijou

DoDo and MoMo said...

Hi Trix,

Thank you for the award! We luv napping under the sun too!!

Martha Basset said...

Twix, we are so worried that you are working too hard there ....... you will be worn to a frazzle!
We liked the sound of your weekend and although you can't have yummy chocolate cake you can have turkey so lets hope you got some!
Our mum was very jealous that your mom has never had to cook a turkey before - ours has lost count!
Thank you so very much for passing that beautiful Award to us - we too like to consider ourselves as Princesses so can see why you got it! Thanks for sharing.
We will post about it soon although we must tell you Twix our secretarial support has not been so good of late - we may need to sack her!
love
Martha & Bailey xxx

Elizabeth said...

Thank you for my award!
I am thrilled to bits.
I will post it on my blog really soon.

Hailey said...

Hi twixie!!!!! I've missed you! Mom has been going back and forth to the doctor's for several weeks now and they keep drawing blood and more blood. She said if they give her water she will leak everywhere! I wanted to give her water so I could have a good chuckle. She wouldn't drink it tho. I think she was on to me. She's been sleeping alot and sometimes missing work. That's not like her. But I gave her a big talking to last night and told her life is too short. Suck it up. We acan handle anything they throw our way because we are two strong women!!! She started blogging again and is now trying to play catchup! I love the pix of you sunbathing - its more important the dreams of chocolate cake! Yummo! THANK YOU for the precious award! Coming from you it makes it even more special! Love ya!

Hugs & smooches xoxo
Hailey

p.s. Mom says to tell your mom hi!
