The girl is home!!!

Our girl came home last night! Yippee!! We were so happy to see her. As soon as she got in the house, she set down her bag and dropped to the floor to hug us and play with us. It was great! After about a half hour of kisses and hugs, she called Liz. Because we were still trying to get more hugs and wouldn't let her hold the phone, she put Liz on the speaker. That was pretty cool, because we got to hear what Liz said about us.

Mostly it was good. Liz told the girl that she loved staying with us and thought about sneaking us to her house to live. I think that was a compliment, but I didn't like it. I want to stay at my house with my girl. The girl agreed and said we were staying right where we were.

Liz also told the girl that we were very caring dogs. On two nights when the girl was gone, Liz started coughing really bad in the middle of the night and had a hard time breathing. Comet jumped on the bed to see if she needed help. I wasn't sure what to do, so I put my feet on the bed and watched Liz. Even after she fell back asleep, I kept an eye on her. Even if it meant sleeping in the bedroom instead of my favorite place on the couch. Comet and I stuck real close to Liz after that - just in case she needed our help again.

Even though BLU told me not to give the girl a gift, I couldn't resist. I even got it early so it would be waiting for the girl whenever she got back. I caught a great big pigeon and put it on the kitchen floor. Unfortunately, Liz found it. She screamed when she saw it! It was kind of funny, until she scooped up my gift and threw it away. I was really sad because the girl wasn't going to know I was thinking of her, but Liz told her about the gift on the phone. The girl seemed happy that Liz got rid of my present. :-(

The girl didn't go in to work today, so we got to play with her all day. We really enjoyed that, even if she did insist on brushing us.

Welcome back girl!
Comet and BLU

Aw, it sounds like you all had a happy reunion.

Hm, I think you 2 are bird dogs. You are always bringing birds home for your girl. Since she doesn't seem to like your gifts, maybe she should help you with gift giving and bring home a stuffed birdie from a store like Petco, one for each of you.

By the way, I got back from my visit to AZ. Boy, was I pooped!! That was a long car ride. Mom and Dad said I was such a good girl for being a trooper during the long drive. I got my own bed at the motel too! Momma got bitten by a LOT of mosquitos while we were there. What's up with mosquitos flying around during the day time? We don't have that here.

Give the girl a gift that won't make her sick...something she can play with!
