a case of the mondays

i was kinda in a funk today cuz daddy had to leave this weekend to go to germany for work and our visiting guests had to go home.  *sniffers*  but then i saw how many green papers were raised for miss shelby this past weekend at her auction!  do you wanna know the grand total??  it was 1215 green papers!!!  isn't that just the most totally awesome sauce news evarrr!  i'm so so proud to have such generous like friendz as ya'll! 

miss shelby is jumpin' for joy!

oh, and you know what else made me feel the betterment?  i got a second versatile blogger awardie from my super cool friend oskar!   thankies bunches for giving this shiny awardie to me and helpin' me feel special today, oskar.  you are most full of the kindness!   


and then i found out that i won sweet miss sugar's book giveaway!  miss sugar was giving away a copy of miss leigh brill's book a dog named slugger.  see, miss leigh has had cerebral palsy since she was a pup, and slugger, a yellow labradude, was her very first assistance doggie!  me and asa and mama are so excited to read about slugger and his special bond with miss leigh.  asa has already decided that we should do a book review after we read it, too!  thanks bunches 'n tons, miss sugar!!  we can't wait!!


so i'm not so down in the dumps anymore after all this grrreat news.  boy howdy, i still miss my daddy, but he'll be home soon, so i'm not gonna pout anymore.

i heart my daddy!

besides, there is one perk to daddy being gone on business -- i get to snuggle with mama in the big bed.  teeheehee!

I know what you mean, Booker! Our daddy was gone all last week, too, and we missed him lots! He didn't go to Germany but he went to North Carolina and I think that's pretty close.

Gosh, those are some very great things to be happy about! I'm just over the moon abouts Shelby's auction and I'm sooooo excited that you won Sugar's giveaway! I can't wait to hear your review! It looks like a Most Wonderful book!

Wiggles & Wags,

Mr. Booker Man,

Congrats on your award and winning the contest. I'm thrilled for you!

Sorry your daddy is gone. :( Enjoy cuddling up with mom in the bed though. I cuddle with my dogs in bed too. I love to cuddle with them first thing in the morning, just before I crawl out of bed.
