Getting Some Rest

Hello, everyone.  It's me, Cammie.  Mom has been a bit "under the weather" as they say, and the other day, Dad said she should try to get some rest.  I love getting some rest and am very good at it - so I thought I'd help!

We went into the bedroom and ...

"Ha roo!?!  Hey, Cam?!?"

Maggie found us - of course.  And rather than getting some rest, Maggie proposed doing something else.

"We're trying to get some rest, Maggie!"

Oh.  That's Mom back there on the right side of the shot.  I may have been laying on top of her.  You know.  Holding her down, so she could get some rest.

In order for you to enjoy the full impact of Maggie's contribution to getting some rest, we put together a very short video:

"Are you two done yet?"
"I don't think so, Maggie."
"Umm... girls?  Can I get up, please?"

I guess Mom was ready to get up before I was.  I must have helped her rest really well - don't you think?  And if Maggie hadn't come in to help, she probably would have taken even longer to get some rest!

Do you help your bipeds like this, too?



  1. Sumtimez I help really good butt then like this mornin'I really feel the need 2 go x-plore outside - never know what iz lurkin'out there. May-b Mags just thought your mom wood like 2 hear a lullaby az she drifted off 2 sleep.

  2. Oh you are like a rest choir in full chorus. Keep up the restful work.

  3. Maggie my word...when folks are 'under the weather and getting some rest'...you might consider using your 'inside Woo' voice.
    MOLMOL Mom says I sound a tad like you when I want something NOW except I say Mewomeowmeowmeowmeowmeow not Woooooooooooooooooooo
    hugs Madi your bfff
    PS we hope your mom feels better

  4. we suspect your mom may be off to find somewhere ELSE to rest up :)

  5. We know she really appreciates your help. Getting Some Rest can be a whole new game!

  6. Chai uses Cammie's version of helping Mom when she needs rest. Chai likes to curl up in the crook of Mom's legs to make sure Mom stays warm. It also happens to keep Mom in place on the bed and not move around too much. Mom says things like, "Chai, can you move over just a bit?". But Chai knows just where to be.

    Hope your mom feels better soon.

  7. That must have been so soothing for your mom. We lay on our mommy when she's not feeling well. We may not give a speech like Maggie but we take the opportunity to take a bath while on her. Oh she loves that. Hope your mom is feeling better today!

  8. Cammie, I'm sure your Mom felt better after her little rest with you. But maybe she thought she'd better get up before Maggie decided on a game of GROG on the bed !

  10. A perfect way to keep mom entertained

  12. Maggie sure had a lot to say about that resting thing. Maybe she needs to pay a visit to occupy Misty for a bit.

  13. Oh Maggie.... you are still such a puppyhead!
    (Just like angel Jack!)

  14. That is how we help our people get some rest. Now if Man calls for a bed nap, we know to go and settle right down.

  15. Maggie sure had a lot to say about whether to rest or play. We like to wrestle in bed sometimes too.

  16. I see you helped mom get some rest! Thoughtful of you

  17. Our mom puts up the baby gates when she wants rest....say what?

    Good job Cammie, Way to help Mom feel better! We help My Margret and My Greg feel better that way too. Why if we didn't lay on them they would float right up to the ceiling! We also liked the video where Maggie was asking if you wanted to play.~nose nudges Belle

  19. We think that was a wonderful lullaby you were singing to your Mama...Great resting music Maggie!!

  20. That was quite a lullaby that you were singing, Maggie! (ha). I hope that your mom eventually got some rest and that she's feeling better! Usually, my pups help out in a similar way but Shyla is sleep too these days... so she is really helping!

  21. Maggie you should audition for The Voice

  22. BOL!!! OMD, I thoughts I sang a lot! You have a most FABulous voice Mags! I thinks we should start a glee club or somethings! Oh, and your version of 'helping' is EXACTLY what I do! See, we are two peas...

    pees: sendin' lots of healin' vibes to your Moms...nothin' worse than a sick peep!!!!

  23. See there, Maggie. You helped your mom out tremendously!

  24. Oh Cammie, I bet you were doing a fine job of helping your mom rest but oh, that Maggie! What a talker! I imagine no one can rest when she has something to say. BOL

  25. OMD I AM DYING LAUGHING!!! Maggie was definitely seeing to it that NO ONE would rest! BOL!! Hoping Mom is feeling much better!! DakotasDen

  26. Who knew that Getting Some Rest could be so fun? :-) I think Maggie was asking, "Why are you lying down, Mom?" I hope she feels better very soon.

  27. I help Momma rest a LOT! It's very impawtant for humans to get enough sleep.

  28. OMD - that's *THE* best rest video!!! Just shared your YouTube link over on our FiveSibes Facebook page! Chloe and Wolf woke up and was looking for you both! Just (p)awesome guys! I hope Mom enjoyed it and is feeling better!

  29. Your poor mom, she just wanted to take a little nap! None of that in your house, eh?
