Mother's Day

We are a little late getting this post up but we have been busy today.
First and most important on this special day I wanted to let everyone know that my Grandma finished her chemotherapy treatments a week ago. She is extremely tired and her blood counts are lower than they have been during the treatment. I know she is happy to be done and we are praying she gets her strength back soon. 
Happy Mother's Day, Grandma! 
These are for you!
(they are as close to teal as we could find).

So, since it is Mother's Day, I decided to let Mom put up some of her favorite photos from her trip to Boston last month. I guess I have been hogging the blog and have made her wait long enough to put them up.
Mom was only able to get out of the hotel for a hour or two and there were several churches within a couple blocks of where she stayed.

Of course, we had to have a flower picture of some sort....

Mom had several more photos she wanted to post but I put my paw down and said that was enough. Sheesh! There aren't even any photos of dogs in here and this IS a DOG blog! Then she showed me this next photo and I allowed her to post one more....but only because this relates to one of my bestest furiends.

The hotel Mom stayed in was attached to a mall and this was one of the little shops that was in it. My girl, Bijou, has a shop in Boston named after her....who woulda knew? Mom said she tried to find something in the shop to buy but they just didn't have anything she liked.

I hope every Mom had a wonderful Mother's Day, whether you are a Mom to human pups, felines, or canines. I will show you some pics of what I did with my Mom today later in the week.

Oh, I'm so glad that grandma is done with chemo. Hope everything's all right there very soon. Those are some nice photos, even though they are lacking in dogs, it's true. I've never been to Boston, and it's always interesting to see new places from another point of view. Of course, it would be even more interesting to see them from our point of view. Like the local curbs, pee mail spots - things like that. Maybe you could mention that to Mom next time she travels.

Hope you all had a great Moms Day.

wags, Lola
