We're bored!!!!!!

So I'm slowly getting better & hope that with a day or two more of taking it easy...I'll be good as new. The Dogs have been really pretty good during my illness, but it's obvious they are in some serious need of some exercise. Between the weather & me being sick, they've been pretty much cooped up in the house for a week.

And on Monday night, Lola & Sherman got into their first tiff. I was snuggled in bed drifting off into a nice NyQuil coma with Lola at the foot of the bed, Sherman on the floor & Penny in her usual spot on Scotty's pillow. I heard a low growl, then a louder growl and mustered up the strength to say "Knock it off" but the growling got louder & I popped my head up to see snarling teeth & raised hackles. Lola had a bone & Sherman decided he wanted it. So he told her he wanted it & she basically said No. Amazing my reflexes were so quick but I caught him mid lunge by the collar and then shoved her out of the way. Lots & Lots of snarling & snarking & by the time Scott made it upstairs, the worst was over. I put Lola in her crate & made Sherman lay down on the floor. I removed all offending chewies. During the whole ordeal, Penny had jumped up & was just staring at them. "What should I do???" And afterwards she laid back down in her spot & shook. Poor baby. Once everyone had calmed down, they all jumped back up in bed & snuggled me to sleep.

We are all looking forward to me getting better!

"So that's what it looks like outside..."

"Sorry you're sick Mom but this sucks."

"Are you better YET???????"
