Weekend Update

We had a very boring weekend. Mom was sick and spent the entire weekend on the couch. Lucky for her that I kept her company. Here's what she saw after getting up to go to the bathroom one time.

One highlight of the weekend is that Dad took us to the dog park yesterday. We got really dirty and rolled around in some mud, so we ended up having to take baths when we got home. Dad said we smelled like pigs and he told Mom that maybe we needed a bath. Then Steve walked past Mom on the couch and Mom said, "Oh! Steve! Gross! Yes, give them baths!" So, even though we weren't happy about it, we had to take baths.

Another good thing that happened is that some of our friends from Texas sent us a housewarming present. They sent Wilbur a mouse and Steve and me collar tags. We can't decide who gets what. There is a pink one that says "Fetch It Yourself". Pink is my color, but I like to fetch, so the saying matches Steve to a T. The other one says "It's a Dogs World... Adjust". We both like that one. So we haven't decided. Thank you for the presents! The people who sent them to us are Adopt a Husky of Dallas foster parents and they have a pet store, Fur The Animals. 10% of all orders go to the pet rescue of the customer's choice (entered at checkout), so you might check them out next time you want to buy a present for yourself.
That's pretty much our weekend in a nutshell. Oh, I did do something really helpful. Mom had a big pile of kleenex on the coffee table Friday afternoon. She had come home early from work and Dad wasn't home yet. So while Mom was sleeping, I thought I should throw all the kleenex away for her. On my way to the trash can with the kleenex, I shredded them into little pieces, just so they would fit into the trash can. Unfortunately, Dad came home during the middle of my shredding, but before the trash can, so he thought I was just making a big mess. Can't a girl ever just be helping?


Update to Weekend Update: Our friends who sent us the presents just started a blog! Go check it out and say "hi"!

I hope your mum is feeling better but she must be after all your good work looking after her!

Kat it's so nice of you to keep the sofa warm for Mom while she was gone! I do hope she apprecaited that. I'm sure you left some of your soft fur behind for her as well. Humans don't ever get the kleenex helping thing. Same thing with us doing quality control inspection of the toilet paper. If some of it is defective, it needs to be eliminated from the roll. We hope Mom feels better today.

Sick? Who let Mom get sick? We hope you get to feeling perky again. How sweet of you to place the kleenex where everyone could easily access it. And, we know you were helping the environment by making the tissue smaller. Kleenex makes those tissues way too large. It's a complete waste!

Marley said...


You are a rockstar for shredding your Mom's tissues. Obviously, you were making room for the wastebasket, and reducing paper waste if you got a gobble or two in. Way to go!! You are the coolest!


The Army of Four said...

LOVE the picture of you keeping your mom's place warm. How considerate of you! And hey! Bipeds pay good money for paper shredders - you were saving them money! Besides, Kleenex would probably clog one of those up, so you saved them even MORE! You're so good!

Murphey said...

That's how we hlep with the paper towesl, but we always get caught before we can get the little scraps in teh trash can, really, we're just helping!

Oh Kat, you look so cute! I am glad you hit the kleenex lottery. I am sorry dad came in and spoiled your fun. I am finishing up my blog post, but be on the lookout - I am giving you all an award.

We wanted to tell you that we LOVE all our presents and it was so sweet of you to think about us! Those tags rock...and great work on the kleenex. Were they the kind with lotion? Those are the best.

Okay, did you cuddle with mom and help her feel better? That's important too!

Kleenex is just too fun to resist. When will the people learn that. Good job warming your mom's spot for her.
