Monday Morning Report

Well, it's REALLY EARLY on Monday, but I think it still counts as a Monday Morning Report.

Hi everyone! It's been a really interesting weekend.
The cookies are in! WHOO! Mommy hasn't put them in the cookie jar yet, but I know she has to do it today because the bags have to go back with Grandma and Grandad and they're leaving today! I know, I just got them back and they're leaving! Whimper.

Here I am making sure Grandad gets his quote of scratching my ears. Pei laughter.

Grandma has a similar quota I'm sure, but she's not as comfortable around me. I'm wearing her down though! I love you Grandma, even if I'm not allowed to kiss your nose.

I had to take a bit of a nap while everyone was doing whatever they were doing. It's not often I nap on the sofa, but this time I did.

Oh yeah, here's what I looked like before that OTHER adventure. Mommy told you about my allergic reaction to SOMETHING.

Mommy came home from being out on Saturday night to find me like that. All scratchy and itchy and not comfortable at all. Then she saw my throat was getting itchy and red too and she called a 24 hour animal hospital. Grandad came with us on the adventure as moral support. Daddy was at a concert or he would have come too.

Anyway, these nice ladies at the Vet gave me huggles and commented that my face was super swollen and gave me two shoots to help me. One was a steroid - good thing I'm not into weight lifting, I'd look like Mango (major)! And the other was a Benadryl shot to help the allergy go away.

We don't think it was the cookies now. Daddy thinks it was something when he cut the grass on Saturday. I'm kind of still itchy, that's why I'm awake right now. Mommy is a little upset because I'm not keeping down my Benadryl. Sigh. I'm trying Mom, but it's been a really busy weekend you know!

This weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving. Grandma and Grandad were up, Miss Jenn came over. Uncle Brett and Aunt Angela and Grandpa were here too. It gets a little pei kind of excited you know. Then today we're going to Greant Granny's because it's her birthday. She'll need nose kisses!

Mommy said she was going to try and get me in to see the vet on Tuesday when everything reopens. Oh, yeah, and I had a bath. Sigh. It kind of felt good, but I NEVER said that ok? It did take some of the itch away.

Yawn. I'm going to try and get back to bed.

Sniff ya later

Hi Bolo. You did have a very busy weekend, didn't you? We hope all that itching goes away very soon, and that you can just lie back and enjoy the cookies!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Your Pals,
Sen-Chan and Tom

Glad you had fun with your family!
I love it when mine all visit too, even though my cousin Sophia gets most of the attention. She's just a baby, so I try to be patient.
Hope you're feeling better soon!

Mango said...

Bolo, I am glad your mom knows you so well because I can't tell your face is swollen at all (you have such, uh, generous features to begin with).

My cat-in-law got the allergies too and hat to get steriods. Her voice didn't change or anything, so I don't think your are in too much danger of bulking up.

Hope you feel better.


The Girl said...

Woah, you had an eventful weekend, Bolo! I hope your itching stops really soon. That's awful, to feel like that.

We had Thanksgiving over at my Nanny and Papa's last night, too. I got a LOT of foodables! The Girl wasn't very happy with Papa, but I was!

Glad you got your cookies, and ear scratches. Hope you got back to sleep, buddy!

Brown dog kisses,

Pee Ess I tagged you for a meme over at my blog, come see!

Love ya lots,

You were the perfect pei host this weekend. We hope we gave you enough ear scratches to keep you going until we meet again!

Hi, Bolo!
I hope those itches go away soon!
I can't find anything better than spend a good time scratching your ears!
Kisses and hugs
