The on-going trials and tribulations of three border collies, the various foster dogs that have passed through our lives...and our crazy, triathlon obsessed Boss Lady....

Wow, it's been a long time since I've been able to post. First, I had my surgery, then we had an ice storm. The Boss Lady was able to come and get me after all, but we had no power for DAYS - I didn't think that was all that bad, but the Boss Lady explained that the 'puter needed electricity to run so I couldn't post. Then the Boss Lady had to go on another business trip and Dublin, Limerick and I stayed at a cool boarding facility run by a friend of the Boss Lady. Limerick and Dublin got to run around and play, but I am still on crate rest so I couldn't join in. Ugh. But finally we are home and have power at the same time, so I can post and update you on all the cool things that have been happening.
First, I want to thank the wonderful people at D.I.N.E for donating this really cool bed for me to use. I'm not sure exactly what makes it so much more comfortable than the other dog bed I used, I just know that it feels reeeeally good to sleep on it and I'm not as stiff when I get up from my nap when I use it. And it is big enough that if Limerick or the kittens want to sleep on it too, I don't feel like I have to get up and move.
I'm healing well so far from my second surgery. It has been 10 long days of no running though and I still have to wear a t-shirt so I don't scratch my stitches - but at least this time it isn't an embarrassing pink one!
As I mentioned earlier, we were without power for DAYS! Humans are pretty funny when the power goes out - they act kinda lost, sorta like when someone steals my ball when I am not looking. They wander around the house trying to find things to keep them occupied that don't need electricity. They're pretty silly, humans - us dogs had everything under control - we just napped the time away! Though it did get pretty chilly in the house after a few days with no heat. I was forced to cuddle with Limerick and the kittens (Dublin does not cuddle with non-humans and I wasn't cold enough to brave cuddling with the other cats).
The Boss Lady has been frantically running around trying to get ready for Christmas yet she still made time in her day to embarrass me.
Limerick tried to help; he told me to keep my chin up and she would get bored soon. So I did and it worked.
Gotta go now and save one of the kittens, they keep getting trapped in the decoration boxes...
