Saturday Blog Hop!

We are participating in the Saturday blog hop! Check out sponsor Life With Dogs. LWD, along with Two Little Cavaliers and Baby Patches at Nip and Bones. Want to join? Check on the link or the button in my sidebar! We are looking forward to getting to know new friends!

It has been one of those weeks for Mom. She is learning how to live in a wheelchair rather than using her legs and it is a BIG change for her. Whether you have 2 legs or 4, learning to use wheels instead of legs take time. We have to get used to it too, because first Mom had a manual wheelchair, but that hurt her arms too much, so someone loaned her an electric one, and that one moves different and makes weird noises. We also had to have a ramp built, since every entrance to our house has stairs, and Mom can't walk up stairs any more. We are all adjusting, but it has been a little hard.
We are excited to announce that Francine is going to be the final feline member of our family (for now). She loves Mom very much (and us too!) and everyone loves her.

After being scared of everything when she first showed up (and really, who can blame her? She was stuffed in a box and left at a place she didn't know by a busy road!) she has really warmed up to everyone. Francine and I like to snuggle at night with Mom before she goes to sleep
(Mom says I need to let Lola say something too) Hellloooo bloggy furends! It iz Lola, most fantastyc syster of Dixie here! My new kit-in syster Francine is a purfect syster! She loves to plays with me and she makes her kit-in happy noises and nevur evur makes mean angry kitty noises! She is nice and cuddlee too when I wants to take naps...and she is soft, so she is the purfect napping partner
Hello everyone. Karma, supreme empress of the universe(KARMA! You may be Mom's top snoopervisor but you aren't the empress of the universe). Whatever you say Dixie remember, Supreme Empress of the Universe Karma. (Karma! You are supposed to be talking about Francine!).
Ah yes! My newest protege, Franicine. She has a luxurious coat that is sure to be almost as beautiful as mine one day. She understands how life should be and makes sure to beg Mom for everything, take bites of any food of Mom she wants when she can sneak it in and she understands how to play with a dignified, wonderful cat like myself. The perfect addition to our family and an excellent snoopervisor in training.

We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and that you enjoy time with your families, no matter who is part of it!

  9. I know I seem to keep repeating this but I really don't know how you do it - I am so in awe of you - coping with all these challenges and still smiling and being so cheerful about it all. I know all your fur-family with their love and support (as well as your human family) must help but still, I just wanted you to know that I think you are truly amazing.
