Plenty of Nothing Going on Here

Memorial Day weekend was a complete bust. We had so many exciting plans and then Momma went and got sickies and spent the whole three days laying around in bed and only rising like the undead to slump in her comfy chair and watch a few episodes of Mad Men before staggering back to the guest room (which I have no doubt will need a visit from the EPA given the amount of cooties she blasted all over).

Momma likes that Mad Men show (which must have close to 87 seasons). She says she remembers the sixties very well (I have no doubt). 

Look what I found. A picture of a younger Momma that was taken with one of those Polaroid cameras sometime around 1968.

Yes, friends, that is an actual corgi by her side. Kind of explains things, doesn't it?

As for me, well, since she decided to stay home from the work place today, my services were commandeered to act as nursemaid. That's a bad deal for me since it means no daycare. But I take my duties seriously and have forced her on some (excruciatingly slow) walkies.

What's a dog to do? Not much. Just watch the grass grow and hope that things return to normal soon.

Dexter done!

P.S. My nephew, Misha, could use some POTP. He developed some disturbing mobility issues with his rear suspension over the weekend and is on his way to visit the doggie neurologist.


  1. WOW Dexter....having to watch the grass grow!!!
    I hear ya though cuz mine is going to work so I will snooze on the couch and watch a whole lot of nothing!!

    Jazzi and Addi

  2. So sorries... Fur you and Momma too. Hope things are better all around by now and that you get to go to daycare tomorrow! Love all the pix!

  3. YIKES!

    Khorgi Khooties!!

    The woomanity of it all!!!

    PeeEssWoo: We do hope The DOH is khontinuing to feel better - I khan't type improve fur I know our DOH's are beyond help!

  4. Dexter, your patience and tolerance are both amazing! Mommaowes you big time!

  5. OMD So SORRY that your momma was sickie. At least you didn't have to suffer the FLASHY BEAST at a picnic or somethingy..

  6. at least the grass is looking pretty - hope the labradude momma is feeling better - but you know what Dexter Dude - it is time you got a playmate - a labra dudette maybe but a labradude would do in a pinch.

  7. Ah, Dexter. These humans and the things we have to endure for their sakes. Of course, having a Momma who openly associated with Corgis is shame enough for any dog. But then having to take care of a sickie DOH? Dude. Your Mom needs to take you out for a cheeseburger. But kudos for being such a good chap and taking care of your Mom! We hope the DOH is on the mend!

  8. Good boy, Dexter. Take good care of your mom. Cute photo of younger her and the corgi too.

  9. There are odd polaroid photos of me at about the same age in 1968, too, or at least I hope they still exist. I had the same cooties this weekend, and I hope Momma has recovered better than I have. Supervise that growing grass carefully, Dex.

  10. We will say a prayer for your nephew! Please keep us posted!
    Yeah, we've seen a bunch of old pix of our mom, too - the ones where she's actually smiling all seem to have a Beagle in them. Hmm. We know where you're coming from with the Corgi!
    Play bows,

  11. You are such a good boy to take such good care of your momma, Dexter! We hope she feels better soon.

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  12. Hope your Momma is feeling better. Why does it always happen on holidays?

    Paws crossed for your nephew.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    We thought if you remembered the 60s--you weren't THERE!

  13. So many exciting plans???? Sure she did Dex. She probably just told you that to make you think you were missing out on funtimes. Well, that's what our mum would do hehe. Cute photo of your momma. Paws crossed for your nephew Misha. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  14. We are sending lots of positive thoughts and energy to your mommy and nephew. Hoping all the sickies goes away for good.

  15. Dexter,

    We hear ya about those cooties, can ya wear a mask.
    Sending our most powerful thoughts to your mommy and nephew.

    Get well soon friends.

  16. Oh no! What a pawrty pooper. Hope she is feeling better
    Benny & Lily

  17. Dexter, we're sorry your weekend plans were a bust. But we hope your momma is feeling better soon.

  18. I hope that your momma is feeling better with your nursing care. Boy, it stinks to get sick on a long weekend, doesn't it? Sending POTP to your nephew. Hope all is improving.

  19. Hope your Mom is feeling Dex! Looks like watching the grass was pretty fun? :)

  20. Oh Noes Dexter...sorry abouts your Moms sickies!! That's not good. I'll be sendin' her some get well vibes and some slobbery kisses...that always makes the peeps 'move' ya know!! hehehe
    I'm sendin' some POTP for your sweet Misha, I hopes his suspension problems are just temporary.

  21. You just tell your mom that walking is good for breaking up "chest matter" and what ever else ails ya! Seriously... I had pneumonia once and didn't know it because "somepup" kept making me walk daily!

    Best of luck to Misha!

  22. We will keep Misha in our prayers!

    ...and, we hope Mom is feeling better.


  23. Dex! Most excellent grass-watching form. Sorry your momma made you wear that stupid nurs uniform all weekend. We hope at least you got extra cuddles and snuggles at least. Hoping the momma feels better soon!!

    Bart, Ruby and Otto

  24. oops! Otto spells phonetically - NURSE would be the correct spelling...

  25. Funny that. Just the other day I was having a conversation with some friends about how corgis used to be quite common when we were children (i.e. in the sixties) but nowadays, in the UK at least, only the Queen seems to have them!
    Cheers, Gail.
    PS Sending healing vibes to Misha and Momma.

  26. Paws crossed for Misha, I hope he gets better very soon. Please give your Mom kisses from me and I hope she feels better. Taking care of sick Mommies is a huge undertaking and there is very little reward. My paws go out to you Dexter.

    Loveys Sasha

  27. Hi Dexter!

    Our overseas visitors left this morning so we're FINALLY starting to catch up!!! :-) Looks like you've been keeping busy - I love that new Labrasize bed you have (and Hsin-Yi loved the one of Mango falling out of his bed coz it reminds her of me! ;-) Oh! And we loved the post of your Momma getting Frenchie kisses coz my humans are seriously considering getting a French Bulldog after me!)

    Anyway, I can see that you've been well - hopefully I'll be able to keep up with your adventures a lot better now!

    Honey the Great Dane
