Tuesday - Still Recovering

Hello everyone!

Well, I survived the weekend. Boy it was super busy! I'm going to spend today napping and regaining my strength.

First of all, remember on Saturday I said I'd wag my tail in practicing for Grandma and Grandad's arrival? And that Charlie Daniels, living in Australia, should watch out for Butterfly Effect storms caused by my tail? Yeah, well, read this here. Yeah, a big storm hit his house and they were PLUNGED into darkness. Charlie, I'm SO sorry! I didn't realize I was that powerful! At least you had your Moo, Chook and Pumpkin with you.

In other news, Dannan, The Little Brown Dog, has tagged me for a 7x7 meme thing. I'll get to that in a minute, I want to get the rest of my news out first.

So yesterday was Great Granny's Birthday! We all gathered to celebrate with her. I was still feeling a little unwell, you can see a couple of red spots on my head there near my eye. I didn't give her nose kisses, but I did grace her my presence, pei laughter, and she gave me scratches. Happy Birthday Great Gran! Oh! And today is Aunt Christine's birthday! Happy Birthday!

Mom was the official family photographer for all of this so I was able to act like my wonderful pei-fessional model self. I think Mom and Dad should repaint the house white. I look good against white. And around natural, light,wood tones.

Grandma and Grandad got home fine, I'm sure they miss me already, pei laughter. Once all this allergy stuff is out of my system, I'll be allowed to eat my new cookies
Drool. I am such a lucky pei! Thank you Grandma and Grandad for the cookies!

I think that's everything I wanted to write. Oh, yeah. When I was a tthe Vet's on Saturday night - that emergency thing, yeah - they had to weigh me. I don't mind standing on the scale. The thing is, this time Mommy wasn't happy with the number. 66lbs. I was 60lbs at my last physical. I'm worried I won't get a lot of chance to eat all of those cookies. Hmm. Maybe I should just insist on extra walks. Yes, yes, that will work. Don't cut down my food Mom, walk me more!
This is a good picture of me, but I'm kind of looking my weight. I know a few of my friends have slimmed down recently. If they would care to share their secrets, I'd be really happy about that.

Sniff ya later!

Hi Bolo! It was fun to read all your "7" lists! We hope you feel 100% better soon, and we think it's a great idea that you go for more walks! Except... you DO live in Canada, right? and winter is approaching? Aaaaaauuuuugh!

Your Pals,

Charlie Daniels said...

G'day Bolo

It's okay mate, I don't really blame you ... BUT ... can we share the cookies ! ;-)



Lois Lane/Laney said...

Great answers! I just posted mine today too!

Booker the Treeing Walker said...

Bolo Yeung is quite studly and handsome, in a rugged, action film star kind of way. We think you are cuter, though ...

River said...

Bolo, I'm glad you're doing better. Good job on the 7's! That was a hard task. More walks sounds like fun! Better get a lot in before it gets too cold.

love & wags,

Maggie and Mitch said...

We wish we could be free eating like you,Bolo, but we'd be as big as a house if mom let us do that!
You've sure got a lot of good looking cookies in your jar!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

The Girl said...

Great answers on the 7x7, Bolo! We love learning about our friends!

Your Great Gran looks like she would just love nose kisses! BOL!

We were astonished at how powerful your tail wags were! I never thought about what might happen down-wag from my waggy-ness...

Um, think some more about the furever brother thing. The Girl says, no free feeding, you and the Min Pins will tear the house down trying to eat all the food all at once, before the others can get it!

(Although I think if I had a furever sibling of MY choice, things might not be so growly and competitive!)

Brown dog kisses,

Lorenza said...

Happy Birthday to your Great Granny!
Nice 7 x 7!
Kisses and hugs

Maybe your mom will read your list and get you a little brother (do you want mine?).

I love ear scratches too!!!
