February 19, 2010

White Dog and I decided that this afternoon was the perfect time for a Pity Party...it was grey...everyone around us was crabby...a hundred cats paraded up and down the street just out of reach and hearing...the computer printer died...AND it was Steve's late night. She put on her black and white Hana necklace and I wrapped a flowing black scarf around my neck. Then we followed Adam's sure fire cure for feeling sorry for yourself.

We sat on the foot of the bed side by side. I dramatically tossed the end of scarf over my shoulder; White Dog shook her fluff. I put my arm across my forehead and with a flourish cried, "Woe is me! The world is against me!" and I fell back onto the bed. White Dog yipped her woes and played "Dead Dog." We waited. Nothing. So we tried again.

This time White Dog rolled out of position and licked my face. I scratched her ears. She grabbed my scarf and pulled. I rolled her over and gave a belly rub. Suddenly, we were playing. We were happy and the woes were forgotten. She jumped down and grabbed Gotcha Chimp and we wrestled for control of the stuffie. White Dog dove under the blankets with him and dared me to "get her." After a while, we just lay on the pillows in the tangled blankets and watched the bamboo swaying in the yard, once again in balance...and for the moment quite content in the warm feeling of laying curled together.

It sounds like you and your Mom found the perfect cure for the gray day blues. There's nothing better than having fun with your Mom.:) It was a gray day here too. Does this mean we both have rain coming? I hope not.

Love,
Teddy Bear

You sure have a great cure for the blues. So wonderful isn't it to be pup and mom together.

No matter how gray the day...Play time with mom always makes things better.

Kitties and doggies and other little creatures are perfect for perking up a dreary day.

You wouldn't believe the word verification. It's "chineup"... close to "chin up"! So, keep your chin up Siku and have a good day!

Every now and then, even the best of eskies and their mom's have to have a pitty party. I especially love your Adam interpretation of "Woe is Me".

No pity party here tonight because you made us laugh, Siku. I remember when we all heard the story together, and my parents still talk about it when they feel the slightest inkling of self-pity.

Love you and talk to you in the stars my BFF,

Prinnie

hey Siku Marie,

What a furry great way to end a Pity Party! I will have to try that with my human! It is so easy to start a Pity Party but hard to end. Your way to end one is perfect!

I had rain and cold all day. It is so muddy here that my paws sink in some parts of the mud.

Suka

p.s. So furry happy to read that you are starting to feel better about things. Life is a journey with many ups and downs, goods and bads. It is how we handle our journey that gives us character and makes us who we are. You seem to be handling your life journey with much understanding and love. Keep up the good work!

That is a great cure for the blues, definitely! I'll ask Mom to try that too whenever she's down and out...thanks for the tip! *grins*

Hope you have a great weekend!
