It's Been A Long Doggone Day!

Just have to wrap up today's doggie chronicles~
My mother got back from work around 3:30 this afternoon and after I gave her the full run down of the day, she and Gabby sat on the back steps to watch while I took the three weenies out again {chihuahua still hiding!}. While we were out on this particular excursion, Dougan had a nice, back scratching roll in some major STINK! So ~ you guessed it!!! ~ BATHTIME!

Therefore, about the time I should have been starting supper {yes~ I got my second wind and decided I would go ahead and COOK - no Pizza Hut tonight Kathy! :-) }, my mom and I were starting the bath routine. First Mr. Dougan, then Little Miss Phoebe. I kept Sophie outside and finally hunted down Jose' so he could go out too. I knew if they were in the house when the bath water started I would NEVER find them!
Notice the look of total indignation on Sophie's face. I am totally convinced that they actually prefer to STINK!

Within about a half hour we had four very clean, sweet smelling poochies! Gabby had an absolute ball with the whole process and we've finally had a peaceful evening, as all furry babies are exhausted! Dougan is used to apartment living and this was quite an exhilarating day in his life.

And not only did I actually cook supper, I even baked homemade oatmeal cookies right after we ate. Now the kitchen is all cleaned up, doggies are snoozing away, and Gabby, well... she took a
3 1/2 hour nap this afternoon, so... she's still up and at 'em. But she is cozied up in the recliner with her BaPa and the house is mostly quiet and peaceful...FINALLY!!! :-}

Nightie ~ Night everyone. May you all have sweet dreams until we meet again!

The picture of your wet doggy is so funny. I think Caesar is the cutest dog after he is done being groomed. When he is wet, he is the ugliest dog there is. lol.

He hates being brushed, so I don't do it very much. (I know, if I did it more often, it wouldn't pull.) All I have to do is open the drawer where we keep the dog brush and he heads straight under the bed.

are you wonder woman or what? I guess I should never feel stressed, and to think you cooked and washed dishes(by hand). Bridgett has a great sister, now tell me does little sis watch all your animals when you go out of town? Tell momma she looks great! Love you Kathy

Love all the doggie bathing going on - so cute! I just love the smell of a freshly dog :)

Enjoy the cookies and your weekend!

O.k., I've stopped laughing long enough to type! What a great story and what an adventure for you, Danette!

I thought we were the only ones who had doggie episodes like that even though your experience wins the prize! I really hope today has been A LOT more peaceful and all beings (human and dog) are having a better day.

Wet dogs are so cute, they look so woebegone and hard done by.

You must be tuckered out dear! :) Glad to hear the day ended on a calmer note. How cute to see your Mom with Gabby. Lucky you are to have your family so close to you. Great day to you dear! :)

Hey Sweetie!! Just poppin' in to say I miss you, girl!! When you're away, it seems like the sun is a little behind the clouds!!

I hope that all is well, and you are just busy like me and haven't had the time to blog.

I'll say a prayer just in case!
Have a blessed Easter, sweet friend!

Love 'n hugs,
Becky

I've missed your blogs this week, but seeing you IN PERSON a couple times was just as nice. Happy Easter, sweet friend!

Kathy said...

Sounds like you had quite a weekend, Danette! The fur babies are cuties! And Gabby is just adorable!!!

I wanted you to know that I'll be out of town at the time but I'll be tagging you on 4/25.

Your doggie drama is absolutely hilarious! And still you had the strength to end the day by making cookies. You are a real trooper!! Those pups are so, so cute - and loved the picture of your mom and Gabby.

Becky said...

Hey, what's going on around here? Because of the absence of new blogs, I've had to actually WORK at work!!!

Miss you...

Heeee!! There is a Clifford The Big Red Dog epsisode on youtube that Nova loves, Stinky Friends. I bet Gabby would love it if she hasn't already seen it.

BECKY said...

Sweet Danette, Is everything ok? Sure have missed you, friend. Please know that I'm praying for you, and blogland isn't the same when you're gone. :o( I'm in need of some of Danette's DAZZLE!!

Love and hugs,
Becky

Becky said...

I agree with Becky! I miss the blogs! My computer ordeals have left me frazzled and I need a blog fix!! (And how have I not bragged about my new buddy? I'll send you a picture of my little sunshine!)
Miss you, miss you, miss you!

I just love it that you call your babies weenies! That cracks me up!
Sounds like a day.
