Before we start,
we want to show you
the Thursday morning sky
over Rocky Creek Farm.

We were doing everything we could think of
to make Mom feel better.
Piper even got some dirty kleenexes
out of the bathroom trashcan
and shredded them all over
the living room floor.

Java was standing around looking

all pitiful and whining.
We were trying to tell Mom
that she needed our Granny's remedy
to make her feel better.


And so she fixed us some
in the middle of the day
while Dad was at school.
He's trying to cut down on his carbs
so he doesn't eat popcorn anymore.
SHH!!! - It's our secret!!

Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Thank you for your comment. We have seen you around bloggie-land a lot and so are making an 'official' visit. It's always nice to make new friends!
Sorry your Mom isn't feeling well, but Im sure that popcorn helped. We hope she gets better real soon!
That morning sky picture was truly stunning too and...
By the way, we loved your poem/prayer for the animals on World animal day.
Lots of licks

The dogs say you are sick, and they are very worried about you. Is that right? Did you catch something from your scottie show, or from Dad? If you have what Tom had I feel very sorry for you because you are SICK..... Tom was the sickest he had ever been with this flu. He still has a bad cough!I will pray for you. Love, Fern


Oh that sky is beautiful! And just in time for Fall!

Hope your mommy is feeling better so you guys don't get into too much trouble!

Yo are good dogs to try to help your mom. I'm sure the shredded tissue was a big help.

I love when the momma makes popcorn!!! Such a beautiful picture of the sky. And for Angus, the saying was "Red sky at night sailors delight. Red sky at morning sailors take warning." The momma said her Grandpa used to say it all the time =)

Gorgeous sky!!! and what a yummy midday snack! You were so clever to suggest it to your mom! I really hope she's feeling better!!

Well, if your cute little faces don't make her feel better, I suppose popcorn is the next best thing.

I love popcorn also, but Mommy says the kernels are bad for me to eat. Something about being bad for doggies. You are lucky. I think you can make Mommy feel better by being cute.

Sally said...

Hope your Mom is feeling better - popcorn usually cheers our D up. We love the sky photo - not as much as the photo of your adorable faces though!

Lots of licks

Jazzi said...

That is a beautiful sky!! and I love popcorn. Mom gives me about 6 pieces when we have it. Your secret is safe with me!!

Take good care of your mom.

Well. From what we can tell, you Moma isn't feeling any better. I hope the popcorn helped. It was hard to look at that picture, though. We love it... but one of us has a wee bit of a problem we (he) eats it. He's a bit of a pig. And he gets a wee bit sick. Sort of a reverse effect, wouldn't you say?
