Well Dogfriends. One more day is over and my Mom told me what the surprise is! It is not a new puppy, although she has still not ruled out getting a
friend for me.

It is not a while box of rawhides for me to eat all by myself.

It is not a visit from Hershey, although she says he will come see me soon.

It is not a new fancy dog bed, although this one is pretty cool.

The surprise is that my Mom has quit her job and will be staying home with me! ... at least for a while. She is taking some time off to sad about out losing her Mom and my Dad's Dad ........ to clean out some closets ..... to have a yard sale .... to knit things for the grandbaby ..... and to go see Hershey when the baby comes. She says she and I will go for slow sniffy walks everyday!

Wowie zowie .... I finally get my Mom back. She says she may get another job in a few months because I may need more money for dog cookies. What a wonderful surprise. She is excited about taking some time off and getting some things in order. She is excited about going to see Hershey and she is excited about knitting. I sure hope she does not knit this for me. Yikes.

Wowie Zowie Copper!! You took the words right out of my mouth! I am very happy for you that you will get to spend so much time with your mom. Plus, your mom needs to take some time to heal from losing her mom and your dad's dad. What is so exciting is that the grandbaby is on its way and she'll be able to help Hershey's mom when the baby comes!! I am so excited for you. I can't wait to see what your mom knits for you and the grandbaby. Maybe she will turn you, Hershey, and the grandbaby into triplets by making all of you identical clothes!! :-)

My verification word is "ukemunk." Lately the word has looked almost like a real word.

Hana, my Mom is really really sad and tired and she needs to take some time off. I am so glad. She had a very stressful important job that didn't pay very much. She has listened to God and is taking some time off.

She is really excited about knitting but so far can only do booties. She has spent a lot of money on yarn and needles and patterns and stuff so I hope she comes through with something! As long as she doesn't make me wear booties!

Copper, you have to be the luckiest dog in the whole world to have your mom stay at home. We wish is was for happier reasons but those will come when the baby is born. We know you will help her deal with all of her sadness. Having a dachsie and getting kisses brightens anyones day!

That is the bestest surprise ever, Copper! You are going to love having a stay at home mom. And your mom is going to love it, too. Personally, I like that knitted lion costume. If she knit you one you could put it on next time Hershey comes to visit and scare him.
Big Wags,

I'm glad your human woman is taking the time off. I hope you can teach her the importance of slow sniffy walks, and you can teach her all about dog time, which is right now, not what some clock says.
