Wrapping It Up, Napping It Up

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  We are wrapping up 2015 here at Ao4 Headquarters in a strange (for us) way -- Mom and Dad are sick.  They've been passing a nasty head-cold/bug back and forth -- and for two bipeds who very seldom get sick, it's an adjustment for all of us!  We thought we'd wrap things up by showing you what we've been doing.

Santa was a little late, but he did bring Maggie and me some snow:

"How awesome!"
"Oh, it is!!!"

Thank you, Santa. A blizzard would have been better, but some is better than none. At least both Mom and Dad were feeling good enough to go on the walk! (We have walked everyday -- with either Mom, Dad, or both.  They DO have their priorities right!)

When we got back from our snow walk, Dad told Mom she should try to get some rest. She decided to settle in with a book, hoping to slip into a nap. This is how we helped:

"Gotcha!"
"Gotcha back!"
"Hey, girls?  I thought we were going to nap."

She didn't nap, but at least she was entertained!

The next day, while Mags was napping, Mom seized the opportunity and joined her. Here they are:

Mom is the one with blue nails.

Yes, both Maggie and I love to hold paws with Mom. It's what we do.  Mom had too much fun holding paws to nap.  Who could blame her?

Yesterday, Mom wasn't feeling up to the morning walk. I thought I should stay with her - so Maggie took Dad. When they got home, Maggie caught us up on everything we missed:

"Oh, YEAH!  So then, we turned up the trail by Murphy's house..."
"Zzz..."

"Did your daddy buy you an espresso somewhere?"

We apparently missed a LOT!

"And then we saw 87 million squirrels ..."
"Mm... hmm..."
"Were they drinking espresso, too?"

After Mags filled us in, we settled in for a short nap:

"OK; I'm out.  Zzz ..."
"Zzz ..."
"That's it for me, girls."

I really think Mom should adjust her schedule to coincide with ours a bit better, don't you?

Anyway, that's the wrapping up and napping up. Have a great New Year's Eve, everyone -- and remember, if you must drink and drive, make it a bowl of water!

Cammie!

  1. Hi Cammie and Mags, I am totally filled with jelly that you had snow, I want snow but all we have had is ice rain for weeks, some snow would be wonderful and your snow walk looks great! I'm sorry to hear that your Mom and Dad have been ill but I do have to say that I really like your Momma's blue nails and I love that you both hold paws with her that is truly very sweet. I did like that Mags came back from her walk with lots to tell you, it must have been extremely fun, she looks incredibly enthusiastic there! I hope that you have a very HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016 and enjoy the remaining time 2015 has to offer, I'm sure you girls have more bitey-face play time left in you! Love and Licks from your Furiend Frank XxxxxxxX

  8. First of all we hope your pawrents are feeling better! Now in that photo of your mom's paw and your paw we noticed that the pads on your foot look very soft. Ours are very tough. Is yours tough and pink or soft? Also, thanks for letting us know you didn't want to pawticipate in the other thingies. We don't ever want anyone to be left out! Happy New Year!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
