Suitcases are Scary

I (Rocco) do not like when the suitcase comes out because I know that means someone is leaving and my separation anxiety starts to take over.   No matter how much momma and daddy try to comfort me and tell me it's ok or that I'm going too, I'm afraid I'll be left behind or they won't come back.

This time momma is leaving to go visit grandma in Ohio.  I know grandma is very excited to see her, but I will miss her so...

I (Brownie) will miss her too. Once I notice she's gone.

Always remember:  It's ok to be scared, but don't let your fear get the best of you.

New Steps

The bed in the other bedroom is really high.  And when our cousins come to visit we like to hang out with them.   And when mommy works in there on here WFH days, we like to be in there with her.  We are her ‘assistants’ after all. 

But without steps, we both need help getting up on the bed.  And getting down is really scary.  I  (Rocco) can jump, but everyone is afraid I might hurt myself.   And being afraid of heights, I (Brownie) would be stuck up there for days without help getting down (Brownie).  Come on, we’re little dogs and we’re 11 ½.

Daddy is tired of carrying our steps from one room to the other (and mommy cringles with every nick of a wall as he does), so today they came home with new steps for us.  They are a bit steeper and a little strange, but we are learning to go up and down.

Always remember:  Don't be afraid to take the first step to try something new…you just might have fun in the process!

Thank you Dr. King!

We are super excited because mommy has the day off today.  She said it’s in honor of Dr Martin Luther King Jr who was a humanitarian and civil rights leader.  He had a dream - He believed that all men and women are created equal and should be treated as such.  Mommy agrees with that.  …And she also thinks all pups should be treated with kindness and love no matter the breed, age or past.

Always remember:  To be thankful to those who struggled to make this a great country.  And always have a dream!

Wednesdays and Fridays

We love the weekends just like all kids. 

But for us, it's because mommy is home with us for two whole days in row!  And that means lots of ear scratches, fetch (Brownie), tug-of-war (Rocco) and snuggles, snuggles, snuggles.  

...But we also LOVE Wednesdays and Fridays.  

That's when mommy doesn't have to get on that Big Blue Bus.  Instead she gets to work from home.  And that means between concalls, 1:1s with her team and emails, WE get her love and attention.   She refers to us as her 'four legged assistants' and we like that! 

Always remember: To spend time with those you love!

Happy New Year!

Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year filled with lots of treats and licks!

Are you making any New Year's Resolutions?   

We are. We talked to mommy and agreed that we will start blogging again.  

We are very excited and we hope you are too! 

Always remember: To find a creative outlet and do something you love.
