Feeling a bit green......

Have I mentioned that I have a sensitive stomach?
According to my Vet, it's a Terrier thing.....
About once a month, my tummy starts rolling,
I can't seem to get comfortable,
and I have this sudden urge to eat anything GREEN.
The gurgling starts and it's a 3 a.m. wake up call
for Mom and Dad.....
I hop off the bed (bed puking is frowned upon in this
establishment) and start ringing the bell that's
conveniently hung for this purpose.
Being perfect parents, they are just thrilled 
to walk me to the back door 
and stand in the mid night air,
while I scarf down huge chunks of grass, 
weeds and leaves.
A few minutes later, they drag me inside 
(way too soon)
and force a little pink tablet down my throat.....GAG!
Soon, I'm REALLY upset and URP!.....Up it all comes on the floor.
A little late night package for Mom!
But, I do feel better now.....
I'm horribly ashamed, of course, but what's a Terrier to do?
We've all tried to figure it out......
Is it stress, the wrong dog food, the heat?
I'm not sure.....OR, could it be?.....
That lovely little pile that our local Fox left curbside this morning??
Try to keep that little pink pill down.....It will help.
And, skip the Street Snax.

Doggy Daddy Day !

This morning at sunrise, 
as birds began chirping and 
the cool Colorado light filtered 
through the curtains,
Lucy and I jumped on the bed and 
woke Dad with lots of sloppy kisses...
Right on his nose!
We had a special card, 
and a cartoon book 
about us Canines, 
that Mom had helped us pick out.
He was so happy and even had a couple tears in his eyes
as he opened our paw printed note.....
We brought him coffee and the Sunday paper,
then settled beside him for a little morning nap.
(Well, Lucy naps.....But, as you know, I'M always on the look out for Sparky!)
We'll stick close to his side all day long,
and remind him why we're the Best Kids in the World!
We love you Daddy!!!
Kiss YOUR Dad and
Have a Happy Daddy Doggy Day!
