Sweet Lexi has left town

And here we go!

Mommy warned me Thursday night as she was grooming me that we we going out of town the next morning. I didn’t have a chance to let anyone know, but here I am in pencil vain ya. Or pee yea!  as Mom says. We are helping out a good friend who had a bad car accident. Mommy told me a gazillion times – both before we left and on the drive here – that I had to be sweet when we got there. Sweet to our friend. Sweet to our friend’s husband. Sweet  to their Airedale/greyhound mix, Pai (pronounced pie). Even sweet to their c-a-t, Claudia. That’s asking an awful lot of sweetness from one little schnauzer. Guess what? I did it! They are all fooled. The people keep saying how sweet I am. Mommy reminded me that Pai and I played together when we were both puppies, but that was quite a while ago and I don’t really remember. Pai has been really nice to me, even bowing to invite me to play. We both BOLed at that for awhile, until we were finally asked to be quiet. Claudia has mostly been staying out of my way, although last night, while I was on the couch, she came over and waved her tail in my face. Her behavior was so rude that I didn’t even look at her.

It was a long trip so Mommy set my breakfast in the back seat along with my water bowl. I got bored.

Mommy was only slightly amused.

Mommy told me about some of the things we saw along the way:

The mountains are beautiful going heading north through Tennessee.

This Cincinnati, Ohio skyline is supposed to be famous.  Look at all the traffic.

The leaning tower of pizza. BOL! Just kidding, although pizza would have been good about then. It's really a hotel with a restaurant at the very top that slowly turns so that you can see miles in every direction. Also in Cincinnati.

Look at the smog (air pollution) in Columbus, Ohio.

  2. Good work, L. Whenever people are sickish or injured, they need doggie sweetness. You are just the girl for the job. As for the c-a-t. Words fail me. Cats! Ugh.

    Love and licks,

  3. An adventure! How fun! I’m glad you had a good time with Pai. Isn’t it just awful when those stupid cats put their butts/tails right in your face?! Jamison’s butt almost touched my eye tonight… My eye! Ugh! *ear licks and kisses* Noodle

    • Noodle, honey, how awful about your eye.Did it get red or swell up from being so shockingly close to Jamison’s you-know-what? Last night the c-a-t sniffed my head while I was laying on the couch. I pretended to be asleep and she left. I will let you know if I need any advice since it looks like I am going to be living with Claudia for a week. &puppy loves* ❤

      • No it didn’t but I had nightmares! Yes, pretending to be asleep is a perfect tactic. Please do let me know if you need any advice. Oh, here’s one tidbit: be careful you don’t step on her tail. Cats turn into ninjas when you do that!

    • Hi Shoko, thanks for checking in. Our friends are in a town called Farrell, PA (I found out it is not pee yea!) It is right next to the Sharon where my Mom grew up. It is between Pittsburgh and Erie PA. Mommy’s girlfriend is going to be OK eventually. When her leg heals she will have to have her broken hip repaired. It all sounds so painful. I think we are going to be here until this time next week. I will update my posts as I can. Oh, we are much closer to you now!

      • The poor woman! Thank goodness you and your mom are there to help. Hip surgery…yuck…mom has all kinds of other surgery like a knee replacement but somehow the hip sounds worse.

        Big hugs to you Lexi,

        Shoko
