Dad said Mother Nature threw us a bone. I can't find any bones anywhere! Believe me I looked.
I even has Brigitte and Sluggo looking. Which meant if said bone was found there would probably have to be sharing.
Nope, nary a bone.
Then Dad explained that what he meant was that we were very lucky not to have suffered any damage from Hurricane Irene.
Well Duh! Why didn't he just say that?!
What is it with these humans not saying what they mean.
They speak in these weird codes, and it is very confusing. With us, it's simple. We know exactly how to communicate. Nice and easy, and quick.
Well, either way, what he meant when he said what he said is true!
See that big tree behind me?
That's the one we were worried about falling in the storm. Scratch that, the one Mom and Dad were worried about, which translated into a puke back for me.
The whole top of it sheared off in the tornado we had when we first lived here.
It is on the side of a big hill that is hard to access, so it will cost millions of treat dollars to fix it. Therefore, I have not sanctioned using the funds for such a thing.
You may also notice a rather sad looking sunflower behind me. Unfortunately, the sunflowers did not fare as well as we in this storm. But, Mom propped that one up.
Our big memorial sunflower was almost over anyway, so we lopped of the head to feed it to the finches!
But, not before a few photo op's
Even Sluggo had to get in on the shoot.
All kidding aside, we are truly grateful to have been spared from any damage related to the storm. Others were not as lucky, some lost their homes, and others their lives.
I guess this Mother Nature lady is no one to fool with.
Today, we have nothing but blue skies!
Update on Oskar
Oskar is doing better. He will be taken off IV's today, and if he does OK, he will be able to go home and continue to recover.
We are pretty good about not eating strange things. Except for Brigitte's problem of course. But, make sure you avoid eating stuff outside like mulch, grass, acorns and rocks. That is what Oskar had in his belly.
I said that it was probably because he is one of those skinny dogs. We pugs know better than to waste time on non food items.
