Our grandma is going with our dad to a graduation on the other side of the state tomorrow. Our mom is "babysitting" our Aunt Sofia. Mom says Nellie Belle is an alpha dog and that is why poor Aunt Sofia is bullied by Nellie B. Here's some pictures of us munching on our doggie cookies.
Opi sitting under the bar in the kitchen. Mom has some crocheted doggie rugs there for us.
Nellie always sits here when she wants a goodie.
Mom says Aunt Sofia looks like a boxing kangaroo; what do you think?
Yesterday, Mom made us get all gussied up and go to the vet with her and Daddy. Check out how nice we looked!
When we got to the veterinarian's place, they only had one vet there and said that it would be a few hours wait but we could come back the next day. So, we went home and came back today. Mom of course made us get dressed up again.
We felt a little violated because the vet took our blood! It only hurt a little bit but it was scary for a short time. Mom and Dad gave us hugs and we were ok pretty quick. The vet said that we checked out ok except Opi has an ear infection again. He said to give us Benadryl for the allergies and we didn't need a shot this time. Opi got some drops for his ears.Whew were we ever relieved.
After we left that place, Dad and Mom took us to the pet store and we got some special goodies. Do any of your moms and dads do that for you after you go to the doctor?
We're home now and took a nap. Now we're kind of playing in the backyard chasing squirrels and birds. We'll talk with you guys later.
Hi, this is Nellie Belle. Yesterday when our mommy was going to pickup our big brother Matthew. I wanted to go for a ride. Mommy said "okay" but she wouldn't take a nekkid little girl with her. Can you believe this--she made me put on a pink t-shirt?!!! I do NOT like clothes. Anyway, if it means going for a ride to get one of my big brothers, I'll do it. My daddy knows I don't like clothes so as soon as he came home, he helped me get nekkid again!
We ran around outside a lot this past weekend. It was really hot outside--90 degrees! Mom said the weather was record breaking hot. All that playing around made us kind of tired so when Mom took her old lady nap, we climbed up in bed with her.
Dad was making some loud noises on the other side of the wall where the garage is. He was doing something with a hammer. Nellie was tired but she stayed on alert in case something needed her attention.
See how her "radar" ears are listening ? Anyway, we really didn't get a nap but we did get some cuddle time in and that's always good.
We hope you had a nice weekend and have a fun week too. Wagging tails and puppy dog kisses from Opi and Nellie Belle.
Nellie is a bossy little girl. She bullies poor Opi something fierce. Yesterday, they were playing nicely together and then Nellie B found her boyfriend, Julio, and left Opi out in the cold with no one to play with! Here's a picture of Opi and Nellie B together:
Mom forgot she had a Photobucket account and when she just found it again, there was this cute picture of Nellie B in it. Nellie was kind of young then and still had her girlish figure. Mom made this sweater for her without a pattern because back then, Mom couldn't find a pattern small enough to fit Nellie. Here's the picture:
Yippie! Our mommy is home again! She left us home with Daddy and went to visit some of her family in Florida. We missed her bunches and bunches. We even had to rearrange our sleeping arrangements. Nellie Belle and Mommy snuggle and Opi sleeps by Mommy's feet to keep them warm. We even went to bed early because no one was awake after 10 PM! Glad Mom's home because we missed the hugs and goodies during the day when Dad's at work. Daddy did come home at lunch time to let us outside to go potty but it just wasn't the same. But do you know what Mommy did today after we spent a week missing her? She was MEAN and gave us BATHS! Hugs and puppy dogs kisses to you all.
Mom was looking at some old pictures and she decided to share this one of Opi with you. Look at his face, I don't think he has any white hairs on it! Anyway, he's wearing a sweater Mom made for him. She doesn't make us quite as many sweaters lately because Nellie Belle doesn't like them and our dad doesn't either so the sweaters don't get much use. Sending you some puppy dog kisses....
Opi was barking up a storm and Mom was getting frustrated with him. She held him and petted him. He was a little sweetie when she did that but as soon as she put him down, he barked like crazy again. Then, Mom realized what the problem was--Nellie had taken over Opi's spot where he liked to hang out after Daddy went to bed. Here's the culprit:
And here's where Opi finally became content:
Mom tucked Opi into her fleece jacket and he stayed in there while Mom was sitting at the desk. He's a spoiled guy sometimes.
Mom found a pattern for a doggie shrug to crochet for Nellie Belle. She worked hard to make it and had to try it on Nellie B. several times so that it would fit just right. Nellie got a bit disgruntled at all this modeling stuff and went to bed with her daddy. Usually Nellie Belle has to be the last one in bed at night so Mom knew that Nellie was a tad bit disgruntled. The next morning, Mom put the completed shrug on Nellie Belle and before she could find her camera, Nellie took the shrug off and "lost" it somewhere in the house! Opi is an easy-going guy so he said "Hey Mom, when you find it, I'll try it on so you can take a picture of it. I don't care that it's a girlie thing." So here's the picture of Opi wearing it:
Later on, Mom did "catch" Nellie Belle and put the shrug on her so she could look pretty when Daddy came home from work. Here's Nellie Belle finally wearing the new shrug Mom made:
You can probably tell by the look on Nellie's face that she's not too happy with having clothing on. That's ok because as soon as Daddy saw her, he took it off and Nellie was happy again.
The other day, our mom finally gave us our Christmas presents! She gave us each a bag of treats and new sweaters. She said Santa had brought them in a timely manner for Christmas but she forgot to put them under the tree. Gee whiz mom, it makes us feel sad to see you open your presents on Christmas and we don't get any. Anyway, to make up for the late gifts, mom dressed us in our new sweaters and took pictures of us. We wouldn't smile for the camera though even though we were secretly happy with the stylish new duds we got. Here's one of the pictures...
She also gave us a WHOLE cookie instead of half of one. We love Mom always even when she's forgetful.
BUT she posted it on her blog FIRST! I like this picture because you can see that my daddy tickles my belly for me when I cuddle next to him in our recliner. I love my daddy 'cause he's a good daddy and gives me doggie cookies when I give him sad looks. Mom, next time PLEASE let me have 1st pick of photos for my blog! Hugs and Puppy Dog Kisses, Nellie Belle...
Nellie Belle loves to greet her daddy when he gets home from work. Mom lets her out to meet him. Yesterday it was extra cold and snowy too so mom made Nellie put her coat on. Opi was acting like he wanted to go out but after stepping one little paw outside he came back in--such a funny little guy! Here's the pictures of them ready to greet Daddy--
Nellie says she's ready to go out for her meet and greet with Daddy.
Opi says he's ready to go out too.
When it came down to going outside, Nellie B. was the only one to brave the elements!
