Well, we've had our suspicions this week and it looks like they were true. Those stupid suitcases are out and packed....Mom is leaving us. Once we saw on Sherman's blog that their Mom was going somewhere too we just knew nothing good could come of it.

Sherman, Penny, Lola...if you're reading this stop now before you hear where our Mom is going.
She's taking a MENTAL HEALTH trip - yes, she actually called it that. Like what could possibly help her mental problems?!?! AND here's the kicker.....she's going to be with OTHER DOGS!!! What could be more relaxing than being here serving us?? We don't know either.

Tomorrow she is leaving us to go to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary for a week. We guess it's ok that she's going to be hanging out with animals that don't have families...all of us bloggin' dogs are pretty lucky you know. She said she was still going to help us blog, we're going to dictate to her over the webcam. She started her OWN blog though (can you believe that) so we're thinking that ours might be boring this week. In case your humans want to follow along and maybe fall in love with some homeless animals here it is:

We can't even post any new pictures of us because the cameras are already packed. See, we're being neglected already.

PS Please send good vibes our way, she's leaving the Hu-MAN to serve us. Human men can barely take care of themselves and he's supposed to be our sole servant???? Oh dear.

Tell your mom to have a blast. I'm sure all those animals will help boost her mental health state :)

I'm sure you guys will keep the Hu-MAN in line!!

Peace + Paws,

You poor pooches! Try to keep the huMan in line, and remind him of everything you need/want. They forget!!!
It's good your mom is going to help pooches with no families. But she'll owe you SPECIAL attention when she gets back!!!

Happy Friday,
Cookie and crew

Pippa said...

Mistress and I will be following your mom's journey and we hope she has a good time. Mistress also says that hu-men can look after themselves - they just pretend not to - so you should be ok.


Maggie & Mitch said...

We sure do feel for you, guys - but it'll be okay! Our mom left us to go to Florida and dad was in charge and we had burgers out and dad took us for ice cream and Mitch had beer! You're going to have so much fun!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Amber-Mae said...

Oh, you poor things! Don't worry... At least she's not going there just to have a great time by HERSELF. At least she's gonna help some unfortunate animals at a sanctuary. Hey, have you ever thought that she might bring back something nice for you guys? She might.

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

When Mom needs mental health time, she sends Teka on a trip somewhere far away. And Hu-Mans are not so bad. They almost always leave things open and accessible, like the toilet bowl, for instance. Tell your mom we think she is a super person for doing this. Are you starting a contest to see who guesses closest to the number of pets she brings home with her?

Peanut said...

That is just awful. I can't believe my mom wouldn't tell me so I could have warned you guys. Lets hope the man can get everything right and you won't starve. If he isn't pack up and come here.

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Good luck. Human men are not good dog carers. I mean, mine let me eat a chocolate chip cookie and then made me throw it up. How stupid is that?


Biggie-Z said...

Howdy dogz! You'll be ok without your Mom. Maybe when you just have your HuMan he will do all the things your Mom doesn't let you do, like sit on forbidden furniture, mark in the house, eat table scraps, drink out of the toilet, fart in public, wrestle, and otherwise play rough. Your schedule will go to heck so just make sure each time you get to go out, you try to potty until you are empty and dry, even if you don't think you have to go, because sometimes they forget.

When my mommy is away on business my Pops either takes me out every 2 hours or every 12 hours. You never know, so just be prepared.

:) love, Biggie

The Daily Echo said...

Oh my dog! My Mom is SO jealous! She'd rather go there than Disney World she said. Give the animals there a hug for us and try to be patient with Mom. She's doing a very good thing.

Hey Pups, Your mom is so great. I know you are going to miss her tons, but all those dogs at the sanctuary are going to be so happy to have her around.


Balboa & Mommy said...

oh no, maybe she'll bring you back lots of treats to make up for leaving you behind.

I hope your mom has a great time and enjoys herself.

Oh, my daddy is easily fooled. Maybe with the four of you, you can easily trick him into getting lots of treats and goodies.

My mom absolutely loves that website!

Hope your mom enjoys herself.

Rudy said...

Oh I feel for you guys. Every time Mom is away for a while, our huMAN acts like he's the only one in the house and doesn't do anything for us. He is awful! Mom comes home and has to yell at him for being so stupid. Pee marks all over the place, chewed stuff all over (like how could he miss that?). When she needs a mental health time, thank goodness she usually brings us along!
Try and hang on --


Holly said...

I'm sorry your mom is leaving you, but she will be doing a great thing by helping those familyless pets! Can't wait to see the blog posts and pics!!


Poppy said...

Oh, my Mommy is so jealous! She would love to visit Best Friends. Someday she would like to go there to adopt a dog.

I'm sure your huMAN will take good care of you. My Daddy lets me sleep in with him til noon or sometimes even 2pm if we're lucky! But if I poop on the floor while Mommy's out--ooh, that's bad news. He's a wimp about that stuff.


wally said...

Hey guys! My ma ape's mental health has been on vacation for awhile now. I hope she has a great trip. If you need an extra babysitter, one that fits on the leopard bed with Sam, you know where to find me.


Turbo the Sibe said...

Yow! I'm sorry you have to suffer through that neglect.

Amici said...

We hope your Mom has a safe flight, a fun but relaxing time, and feels ready to come home after her trip. :)

It sounds like a wonderful place....even though it leave the rest of you behind. At least you have a human to watch over you while she is away. That is better than the doggie kennel.

Kirby said...

What a great vacation for your mom. She is such a great person and animal lover. Can't wait to see how her trip goes and how much fun you have while she's gone.

Your pal,

Luckie Girl said...

I think your Mom will find that trip very fufilling. But seriously, she needs to get her head examined if she thinks the Hooman MAN can take care of all of you. *snort* I see Dad needing Mom to help him do so many things so I highly doubt he can serve me as well as her. Good luck.

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Woh, how come you doggies dont get to go for this trip too?

Dakota said...

I think Luckie Girl woos it all!

I don't know how you are going to get by for a week with the hu-man. I'm sorry you are being put through that.

Lady Kaos said...

I knew it! That's 7 dogs and 2 blogs that are being neglected! PLUS I've read studies that himans with pets are mentally healthier than people without so shouldn't she be taking a week to spend totally with you guys if she needs a mental health trip? Sheesh!!!
Good Luck!

Barlow Putz said...

hey, a little easy on her, she is coming to help dogs in utah, YEA, YEA, HOORAY...ONE OF US IN PLATOON OF FOUR stayed there.....really was locked up there, really was incarcerated there....we love her for her sacrifice....honest no one is going to suffer from this trip

Barlow Putz said...

p.s. that mental health comment just up one comments was himans, or humans with cats, not pets have calmer better health, but if that is the case, who wants better mental health....ooooh cats, i shudder

How Exciting for your Mom!!!
This is one thing our Mom wants to do before she leaves this world.
Looking forward to reading all about it!

It's almost time for Mom to be home you guys. Patience!

At least you're going to have some pretty weather to play upon her return.

Mom looks like she hooked up with a great group! Are y'all practicing your pathetic looks for her return?
