Good News and Bad News

The good news is...

Mamma's got a new niece!! Her brother's wife gave birth Friday to 8lbs 4oz Piper Ann. This is her and her brother Liam meeting for the first time on Mother's Day! Liam is 18 months old. Mamma pretty much spent the weekend helping her parents care for Liam while Piper was getting used to life in the hospital. Mamma came home and slept like a log!! She said he was fun and hilarious but exhausting.


The bad news is Mamma and Daddy are getting a De-vorce. She didn't really want to share this but she feels like you all should know. She doesn't want to air all the dirty laundry so we'll be discreet. We are all staying with Mamma 'cuz we are taking very good care of her. She is REALLY mad at Daddy. As in, like, "he pooped the floor for the fun of it" mad... REEEEAAALLLLLL mad. She's also real sad but there ain't no 3 and 4 chances in this house! No sir, you hurt my Mamma's heart, you get out Mr. Man!

I will soon rightfully take my place in the bed just to make sure she's okay you know...

Mamma Heartbeat here, I don't want to air the dirty laundry but if my blog posts are glaringly missing someone, you might be curious. Also, my creative juices are pretty much null and void right now. Reading your posts makes me laugh though and really appreciate my dogs and truly appreciate the fact that they would NEVER betray my trust. I love them more now than I EVER have if that's possible! And I am angry because Lucy runs up and down the hall looking for her Daddy. I cannot imagine going through this with 2-legger children.


  1. Tell Mama congratulations on the beautiful new niece!! We love that name, too!

    Bummer about the divorce, but we're with your Mama--there's no 3rd and 4th chances!! Heck, she was nice to give him a second chance! We know you fur kids will be taking REALLY good care of your Mama!!

We send you great big ol' hugs to support you and we will be thinking of you...oh and you knows where we lives too, just in case you needs us. We is purty good at makin' peoples laugh:)

  3. Furstly, congratulashuns on the hooman puppeh and my mom agrees, they do be exhausting. Fortunately I hasn't been around one long enuff to be exhausted by one yet. And secondly, welcome to the De-vorce Club! My mom woz akshually de-vorced way afore I commed along so I woz an instant memmer. She likes being de-vorced so much she has stayed that way fur 22 years now coz it means we can go wherefur we want, do wotefur we want, whenefur we want and there be nobuddy to ansser to or to tell us different! Let them try! You just wate and see, being a de-vorced dog is not bad at all. Lucy will get ofer it. Our 2-legger boy did, it just taked a little getting used to but in the end it all be fur the bestest coz living with hurt hearts is no way to live.

  4. Well, congrats on the new niece! We get a cousin (2-legged) soon... but he will be a boy. We have lots of 2-legged cousins and, actually, not many 4-legged cousins. Anyhow, We are so sorry about the de-vorce. Yikes! Just knows that we are thinking about you and your fam!!

Ow!) we'll just be glad to know you're all okay, or at least sort of okay!
