Lots of updates...little time

First of all - TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY! I'm ONE! My mama wished me a happy birthday this morning, but told me that we are not going to celebrate until tomorrow because she has to work tonight at the Symphony. I hope she makes me a cake, or something...

It's also my mama and pop's dating anniversary! September 29, 2000 was their first date. Pop still has proposed, and he has until tomorrow or my mama, me and Patches may be finding a new place to live. Mama's a little sad - but hopefully pop will do the right thing. We'll know for sure on Monday.

Patches pooped on me. Can you believe the nerve of that puppy? Mama put us in the same kennel so we could snuggle, and in the middle of the night, he snuck into the corner and dropped a stinky load. I was not amused, and we both had to endure pre-breakfast baths. I never want to share a kennel with him again, until he can control himself.

Mama had a really bad accident on Tuesday night...her car exploded on her. The engine overheated, she pulled over and looked under the hood. Suddenly, the reservior that keeps all the antifreeze and water for the engine popped a hole, and all that yucky stuff got all over mama's neck, face, arms and chest. She has 1st degree burns on her neck and chest, and we are not allowed to lay on her anymore. (Luckily it wasn't as bad as it could have been - although she was taken to the ER in an ambulance!) Doesn't every human out there know that you shouldn't look under the hood if your car overheats?! Not my mama!

OMG, things are not good at your house! We hope your mom is okay! She must be in pain! We are so sorry to hear this news! We're sending lots of AireZen her way! And what is this about Patches pooping on you? That's not nice! I hope you gave him a piece of your mind!
And thirdly, happy birthday Sparky! I hope you get that piece of cake and a pressie or two!

Love ya lots,

Oh, no, Sparky! This is not a happy post, even if it IS your barkday! :(

I'm sure your Dad will do the right thing and ask your Mom to marry him, and if he doesn't, maybe you should make him sleep in the crate with Patches! ;)

I really hope your Mom gets better after those burns. That is so scary! Tell her to get lots of rest, ok?

Happy Birthday Sparky! We hope your mom gets better (a nice fat ring should do the trick!)

Hi Sparky!
I sure hope your Mom starts getting better. I be you miss laying on her already! Happy Birthday too! Us puppies are always pooping in the wrong places. The other day I was in Mommys car and I pooped on the floor then stepped in it, then came to give mommy loves...She was covered in my poo!

Tadpole said...

Oh my dogness! So many things happening at your house! It's too bad your mom is burned for your birthday/her anniversary... I hope she can still make you a cake! I bet a little ring for her finger will help the healing process! ;-)

Amber-Mae said...

OMG! Your poor mom. Must have been really painful & shocking for her. I hope she will heal soon & hope nothing like this will happen again. It's really scawie! But err, Happee Barkday to you Sparky! I hope that Patches won't poo on you again...

Lots of healing hugs & lickies to your mom,

Oh geez! I hope your mama feels better soon - that must have been SO SCARY! I'm so glad it wasn't worse. There's nothing like a birthday and anniversary (and proposal) to cheer a woman up. Make sure to keep after your dad! Maybe he can have a heart-to-heart with my dad? He finally got the picture this year!

MONA, JACKS & TOBY TOO !! said...

WOW so sorry to hear about your Mommy. I bet she was really scared & on your birthday too. We wouldn't know what to do if something happened to our Mommy. We don't gots no Daddy to look after us. What's wrong with your Daddy? This oughta convince him he needs to pop the question to your Mommy NOW!!

Tiffany said...

Happy Birthday Sparky! Hope you have a great celebration. Tell your Mama that I hope she feels better soon.

Anonymous said...

Oh no! Sounds like your mama isn't having a real good time right now. Maybe you and Patches could give her little doggie sugars on her toe-sies and make her feel better. :(

Preston said...

oh no! Sparky's mommy, I hope you recover from your injury quickly. The accident sounded very scary. My mommy would have probably done the same thing...(but she will have to learn how to open the engine hood first). Now she knows, thanks for sharing your story.
Happy Birthday! Sparky! You have been such a good boy this year and brought so much joy for your mommy and daddy(and our family too!) I am sure you will get a special celebration! Best wishes from me, my mommy and daddy!

Hi Sparky & Patches!
I hope that your Mom is feeling better... Unfortunatly, I don't think Mum would have been any smarter. Sorry to hear about the poop and bath, that is just rude puppy behavor.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Mom's accident. I hope she's on the mend now.

And Happy Barkday! You should milk this one for a while.

After 7 years, my folks still aren't married. I don't think they're EVER getting married at this point. Pawsonally, I don't care...they act like an old married couple most of the time anyway!


Stanley said...

Sparky Boy!

Give your mama healing goober hugs from me! I'm sorry she was hurt, but glad she wasn't hurt any worse.

You've got so much happening at your house. Did your mama & dad get engaged? Are you still sharing a kennel with the stink bomber? We want to know!!

Hope to see you Friday at Butchy's birthday campout!

Goober love,

Suki & Joey said...

Sparky, how's your Mom? Hope she's ok.

Miss you guys!

Puggy kisses

Sorry to hear about your mom. That happened to my mom's friend once and it was scary! Antifreeze is bad stuff, don't eat it...
