All settled in!

Hi guys! I know I haven't been around FUREVER!! I went on a little mini-vacation and then I had to get ready for my BIG MOVE! But let me tell you...I've missed you all terribly.


I know Penny told you I was going to move in with our Auntie Kristen...and the good news is that our Auntie Rachel is at our house all the time. She practically lives there too! I'm so super lucky to have 2 great Aunties to take care of me.


And they're pretty cute too...


So let me tell you a little bit about my new place.

I've got this great yard to relax and catch some rays...oh & this pink blanket, not mine.



And when it get too hot, I have a nice shade tree to lay under...



I've got a GIANT kitchen...




And a very appropriate bowl to eat from. I am, of course...the King of this Castle.





I'm not really eating many raw meatables these days, but I do get to share dinner with my Aunties...



And they are very good cooks...




This is where I hang out while Auntie Kristen is at work...


And this is the big bed I get to sleep in at night...



OK, not really, I'm supposed to sleep on the floor...but I have this rockin' little room with cool wood floors to chill...and nap, if I so chose.



All this great stuff! It's really like a doggie dream come true.

But as hard as I tried, I couldn't help but feel like something was missing.

All right, all right...I missed my Mommy!!!! I know I'm super tuff and you guys would never guess it, but I am a closet Mama's Boy and things just aren't the same without her...




So I moved her in with me
!!!

Yep, that's right...Mom is now living with Auntie Kristen and I!! See how happy it makes both of us!!!

We're not going to have Internet access at home for another 2 weeks. It's going to be hard for us to comment on everyone's blogs but we promise to keep up with what's going on with our DWBs family. Penny & Lola will post an update as soon as they can. And no, I don't miss them...

(On a slightly more somber note, Scott & I have decided to part ways after 8 years. It was an amicable split and we will maintain joint custody of the dogs. Penny & Lola will stay with him and I am obviously with Sherman. It's an adjustment for all of us, but we're ready to move on with the next chapter in our lives. Stay tuned...

Georgeous said...

OMD, I dunno what to say - I was so caught up in your pretty aunties and all your nice stuff and your lovely new home and then the blow. I do hope your Mummy is okay, I know she is very pleased and happy to be with you though.
look forward to hearing from you soon Shermie.
Love George

BenTheRotti said...

Sherman I can't begin to tell you how much you have been missed buddy, Mum has been practically sobbing over your pictures, then again we all know she has an uber love thing for you.. so thats no shock!
Your Aunties sure are cute! Your Mom is too.. hey wait a minute.. you get to live with THREE hot chicks!! Jeeze man.. you still rule the roost of super-studism! No wonder I aspire to grow up to be just like you!
I'm so sorry to hear about your Mom and Dad but I'm happy to hear things are amicable and your Mom gets to spend time with your sisters still. Please give your Mom huge rotti slobbers and kisses all sprinkled with love from me, and make sure she knows I'm available *wink*

eeeeek.. you know that was a joke right? I don't think I could handle the wrath of the Shermster!

anyway, I seem to be getting close to an essay, but I'm really glad to see you all settled and that you have your Mom (No shame in missing her you know, even us tough guys need our Moms)

Mum send you smooches (sigh)

Stanley said...

Sherms!

Man, I have MISSED your face and your booty! Glad to see you're hanging with some hot chicas still, even if they are of a different species.

You and your mama look so happy to be reunited! Like Joe said, I'm sure she's one hot single mama, but make sure she keeps a lot of good time carved out for YOU!

Tell your mama if she wants, we can enroll her in a dating program here in GooberSTan. Nothing but the best goobs for HER!

Goober love & smooches,
Stanley

Tell your mom we all said hi and give her some Macky sugars too ,
Love,
Mack

Peanut said...

Sherm my buddy. You have the life. No siblings and 3 hot women to take care of you. Don't tell anyone but I would miss my mommy also. I'm a big mama's boy. Oh and can you have your mom give Penny a big smooch for me?

Sophie Brador said...

Wow! Changes galore over there. I hope your mommy is doing okay. Even when break ups are good things, they are still hard, so you better give her loads of loving. But Shermie! How lucky are you, hanging with all those girls ... all the girls with thumbs, who can open fridges and give you foodables. Woo hoo! You are living the life, dude!

Petra said...

Sherman! It's so good to see you happy and to hear from you again. You are really king of the castle!

Like everybody else, we're sorry to hear about your dad and mom. Life can be really hard at times, but I'm glad to see the smiling faces!

River said...

Hi Sherman! My mom went through that too before I came to live with her. She got to keep the dogs and the house so she could continue to do rescue. Even though it's amicable (as was my mom's) it's still hard. We wish you the best.

love & wags,
River & mom

Kirby said...

Sherman,

I'm so happy you are back with your Mom. Be sure to give her tons of love as she begins this new phase of her life. Enjoy living with all those lovely ladies, but dude watch out for that pink. A dog could get the wrong idea! He he!!

Your pal,
Kirby

Simba said...

Can I come and live with you too. I need a bowl like that one. Sorry to hear about your parents splitting up, but sometimes a new beginning is the only way forward.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh Sherman! Only you can understand my pain (both literally and figuratively).. Hershey still has got her nasty razor sharp baby teefies and it seems like no one is spared.
Gee Sherman, you get to live under the same roof as 3 gorgeous gals and I bet you get their undivided attention. Me?? I live with a naggy & grumpy mom and a sister whose teefies give me their undivided attention.. Wanna trade places??
So sorry to hear about your parent's split. But if it's not too much to ask, can you please let your mom know that I am available? She's so pretty and I'd love to take her out on a date.. *blush*

XOXO,
Huskee Boy

JAZZ AND DIXIE said...

Hi Sherman
As we read down this post we were so very happy to find that things were finally going your way and that it had all worked out for you. We were a little saddened by your mummy's news but she has you to help her through this transition in her life and wish you and her all the very best.

Sherman--I am watching the Steelers and the Eagles (not on the same channel, obviously). It's like Pennsylvania-Palooza!

My ma ape thinks your kitchen looks really nice and I think your meatables look nice! I told my ma ape that WE should move in with Sherman! She said that football days would be too contentious.
