A few months ago, Mom started going to something called werk. She'd put on a dress and swish out of here and say, Franklin, take care of the house. I'm going to werk.
I didn't mind. I like being in charge.
But sometimes when Mom would come home, she's walk in the house and say, Uh-oh, there's a poodle.
I couldn't figure that out. I've met some poodles at the neighborhood park, but I've never seen one in our house.
|As you can see,|
a Bordernese is much better lookin' than a poodle.
Sometimes Penlapee can't wait till Mom gets home, and she makes a puddle. Mom doesn't get mad. She knows we're used to having her at home and letting us outside whenever we need to go.
Mom says she thinks that during the last hour before she gets home that Penlapee is probably watching for her at the window with her legs crossed because she needs to go. Maybe we need some buddy to come over to let us out while Mom is gone, but Penlapee is so scared of every buddy except Mom that she would probably hide and refuse to go out.
I'm much more cooperative.
We have other kinds of pee in our lives, too. Remember way back around Easter when Mom blogged that she'd been sick with the flu? She got a little better and went to werk, but then she got worse. Now she has pee new moan at ya.
When she coughs, she sounds kinda like a barking dog.
I guess Mom has learned a new language, and it's ours! I like that. I'm glad she's at home with us until she gets better. She says not to worry. She's been to the doctor and she's taking her medicine.
We've all been watching movies together and we don't have poodles or puddles in the house.
Okay I love you bye-bye.
|I'll rest my head here during the movie.|
Tonight we're watching Phantom Thread starring Daniel Dog-Lewis.
I am so sorry to read about the pee new moan at ya. And very glad that she has you and Penlapee to look after her.ReplyDelete
Mom can rely on us.Delete
Oh no! Pneumonia!! Well, dang it all! I hope you truly are on the mend. And with a new job and all. I hope they are okay with you being home sick? Always something. And palmetto bugs on top of it! Dang it all!ReplyDelete
The doctor says that werk has to be okay with Mom being sick.Delete
Sorry to hear you have pneumonia, but happy to see you're posting.ReplyDelete
I feel so bad for my dog when he can't hold it. He'll pee right in front of the door, so you know he was begging to go out. If you have a fence, would a dog door be a solution? Though, if it's too big, burglars could come through it.
The dogs are large enough that I fear what else could come through a doggy door.Delete
Thank you Franklin for posting the latest scoop on what's happening at your house. Poor Penelope. Maybe your mom can install a doggie door so she can go outside to pee when she needs to. I hope your mom is feeling better. Make sure to snuggle with her a lot. My mom likes when I do that. I heard her yesterday talking about puppies. I hope she gets one so I can play with it. I'll keep you posted. Love, ZoeyReplyDelete
Puppies? Wow, Zoey! Let me know what happens.Delete
Sorry to hear about pneumonia...tReplyDelete
All pets are more caring for the owners. when we leave them and go out they cry for it and make some different sound. Once we are back we will be happy to see the way they express their love to us...
We show lotsa love to Mom.Delete
Oh, Franklin -- I hope your Mom feels better soon!ReplyDelete
She's better. She doesn't cough as much.Delete
Hi to the Junebug family ... just take care, look after yourselves and hope the medicine works soon - cheers HilaryReplyDelete
We all take care of each other.Delete
Hi Franklin! I sure hope your Mom will get better soon. Too bad about the "poodles", too. What about pee pads?ReplyDelete
Mom put down an old towel for a while in Penlapee's favorite pee spot. It helped till she started peeing in another place.Delete
So sweet. Not the croupy cough but the canine voice, which flows perfectly.ReplyDelete
Get well, Canine Mom!
We like her new accent. It's exactly right.Delete
That's great that Mom's learned your language. She should be able to take better care of you if she understands exactly what you want.ReplyDelete
Some words are lost in translation.Delete
You are such a good dog, looking after everyone and letting us know how you all are doing. Hope mommy feels better soon.ReplyDelete
Yes, it's true: I am a good dog.Delete
Pee new moan at ya is a bad thing to have - I hope your mom feels better very soon. Poor Penlapee. I was wondering how you pups were faring alone while Mom werks.ReplyDelete
(I think I'll start spelling werk that way all the time. It's more interesting than the other way!)
Take care of Mom, Franklin!
P. S. I second the pee pad idea, if Penlapee would be okay with it.
We might try the pee pads, but I think they would frighten Penlapee. Everything frightens Penlapee.Delete
Hope the pee new moan at ya gets better VERY soon!!ReplyDelete
Our mom is tough. She's getting better.Delete
I am so sorry you mom has pee new whatcha. Keep her home until she's better.ReplyDelete
Even when she's better, we don't want to let her go anyplace without us.Delete
Pee new moan at ya... That's pretty nasty! I hope mom is much better and has stopped peeing all over the house ")ReplyDelete
So it's Mom who pees on the floor? She blamed Penlapee!Delete
Soooo sorry to hear about the pneumonia. No fun at all. Get well soon.ReplyDelete
Too bad Penelope can't use a little box...
Happy Mother's Day!
We can't all be cats.Delete
what cuties. Get well soon!ReplyDelete
We're taking good care of Mom.Delete

I'll suggest it to Mom.Delete
Franklin, I'm sorry to hear that your Mom has had pee new moan at ya, I hope she is 100% now. I'll bet you took good care of her!ReplyDelete
