is it too late to woof "happy new year"? --OR-- mama's had a rough week!

even if it is too late, i'm totally gonna wish everybuddy a super happy new year anyway!!  i'm kinda full of the embarassments that this post is so late-ish cuz i meant to paw a post like 50 gazillion days ago...but i'm guessin' my informational title alerted ya'll to the fact that my mama wasn't able to help me with bloggin' this week.  actually, she was kinda wishin' she could have mashed the fast forward button for this week.
anywho, before i get to mama's woes, i wanted to go all the way back to christmas and recap all the awesome sauce excitements that happened since then!  first, it snowed on christmas here in south carolina!!  well, actually it started snowin' just before midnight on christmas, so it really snowed the day after christmas.  i just wanted to woof that it snowed on christmas, though.  teehee.  we got like 3 inches of snow, which was super duper funsies! 

so then a few days after it snowed, mama and daddy packed up the car, and we drove to the way far away land of virginia to visit grampy and grammy!  here we are road trippin'!  (sorry it's an icky camera phone pic.)
asa likes to scoot up as far as she can between mama and daddy.  heehee.

my grampy and grammy have the bestest house evarrr!  for starters, the whole back of the house is windows, windows, windows!  you can do nose art to your heart's content!  also, their house is sorta in the woods and next to a pond, so you can watch all the deers and birdies and bunnies all day long!

asa woofed that she would help me watch for the deers 'n stuff, but i kept catchin' her snoozin' on the job.  hmmph.

the other super cool thingie about grampy and grammy's house is that they have mega stairs!  me 'n asa don't have stairs at our house, but boy howdy, do we love doin' zoomies up 'n down stairs!  mama tried to get a picture of us, but you know how she is with those action shots.  heehee.  this was the best she could do:

by the way, do you like our festive christmas toe cap thingies?  we didn't wanna scratch up grampy and grammy's nice wood floors.  asa got red toe caps and mine are green 'n red striped!  oh, and woofin' of festiveness, here's me by the christmas tree!  i reeeeally liked the little lambies, but i was a very, very good boy and didn't try to nom on them one bit!  mama was very proud of me!

we had a grrreat time visitin' grampy and grammy and were sad when we had to leave to come home...and that's when thingies started gettin' rough for mama.  on the way home, her throat started hurtin' and gettin' scratchy...then she felt all headachey...then she started sneezin'...then she started coughin'.  we knew it was curtains for the free world when she started blowin' out the green snots.  it was official -- mama had a totally nasty head cold.  ewwwww.  unfortunately, since mama took off from work to go visit grampy and grammy (her daddy and mama), she couldn't call in sickies.  that means mama had to work all this week feelin' really gross.  she would come home from work and immediately take a hot shower and get in her jammies.  daddy and asa went on lots of chicken noodle soup runs.  as you know, i am totally a mama's boy, so it was my very serious mission to comfort mama and provide the endless snugglefications.  we did lots of this all week:

now ya'll are pretty quick like, so i'm guessin' you saw the hooge bandage on my mama's finger and were all wonderin', "what's that??".

well, since mama had the sickies, she wasn't her normal self at all.  on tuesday, she was at clinic preppin' a room for a minor surgery, and she somehow had a clumsy moment and dropped the surgical scissors she was holdin' and stabbed herself in the left index finger pretty bad like.  fortunately, the scissors were sterile.  my mama is totally a lucky ducky cuz she was able to get dermabond to seal her ouchie and didn't have to get stitches.  (she's kinda a weenie about needles 'n stuff even though she sees it pretty much every day!)  i wanted to show you mama's ouchie, but she said no cuz she didn't wanna gross anybuddy out.
the good news is that mama is feelin' the betterment finally, so she can help me with bloggin' again!  hooray!  we'll be makin' our way around everybuddy's bloggies this weekend and start gettin' caught up.  we missed ya'll and can't wait to hear what's goin' on!  pretty please let me know if we missed anythingie important!

Mayzie said...

Oh, Booker, Booker, BOOKER! You're BACK! I'm doing my happy wiggly Booker's Back dance! I missed you oodles and gobs.

Gosh, it looks like you had SUCH a good Christmas time. I just luvs your grammy and grampy's house. I bet they were Most Appreciative of the nose art you left for them. And it's not every labradog that can carry off green nail caps, but of course YOU did. Cuz you're so handsome and stuff. Siiiigh.

I'm sorry your mom got the sickies. MY mom got the sickies, too! She says it was the Oak-luh-home-ah germs. But I don't think she was near as sick as your mom was. I'm glad your mom is feeling better and I'm glad that she didn't cut off her finger and I'M GLAD YOU'RE BACK!

Wiggles & Wags,

Madi and Mom said...

OH MY STARS AND STRIPES...Booker and Asa we are glad to hear from you and it is never ever to late to say Happy new Year...and Mom thanks you 10 bunches for the b-day wishes...

What nice place at the grands house to sit and watch the world go by!!! Just lovely. We are glad you had a good time until....

Your poor sweet Mommy had a week from 'he double hockey sticks'. We were wishing we could hit fast forward too. Well about all we can think to say is the standard southern phrase, "Bless your Mommy's heart". You two and Daddy took good care of her. We hope Daddy stays well.
Hugs and purrs,
Madi and Mom

K9friend said...

I'm glad you had such an awesome Christmas visit, but sorry to hear about Mom's cold. I had one, too, and it certainly was no fun. There's some powerful germs floating around, so tell everybody to stay well!


Kristin G. said...

Welcome back!! I'm so glad your mom is finally feeling the betterment. Hopefully she'll have the weekend to rest up now! You all came up our way for the holidays. We're in Virginia! Too bad we didn't see each other. ;) Take it easy and continue to be a good nurse for your mom. xoxo

Madi and Mom said...

What in the world my comment printed twice...I certainly did not type it twice...must be the sickie gremlins trying to escape.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Kristin G. said...

P.S. - I forgot to mention that I loved your toe cap thingies! Very festive!!

houndstooth said...

We're glad to see you back! I'm so sorry your mom was so sick. That is absolutely no fun! Mom and Dad were sick over New Year's so I understand what you went through.

Those toe caps are so cool! I am totally impressed by those. Your snow looks like major fun, too!

It's never to late to wish everyone well!


Doris Sturm said...

I'm glad you had such a wonderful time with grama and grandpa...sorry your mommy got sick, but she did a good job helping you with this great blog. I'm so glad to hear from you and want to wish you a very happy and healthy New Year. I wish you could teach Gizzy how to do the snugglefications because he's not much of a lapdog unless it thunders and lightnings outside...

All the best from
Gizzy and his mom :-)

Good to see you!

So you like those windows, eh, Booker? You can come here to visit too, we have those tall windows here and we have lots of nose art or snart as we like to call it:) We are still waiting for snow, so maybe you can bring some of yours along too.

Poor Mom - our Momster had a nasty cold over the holidays too. Paws crossed yours feels better soon and that her finger heals well.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Oh I would just LOVE to snart those windows!

Welkhome bakhk!

PeeEssWoo: Are woo sure your mom didn't try to run with scissors?

Mr. Pip said...

Hey Booker - so glad you are back! We missed you! I hope your mom's hand is OK, that sounds awful.

Thanks also of for putting up the race badge!

Your pal, Pip

Priscilla said...

Welcome back, Booker and Asa, we are so glad that you are back. I'm sorry that your mom wasn't feeling well and she hurt her little finger too! Hope the finger is okay now. The Christmas tree is beautiful and so is the house. You are so lucky that you could do a lot of nose arts on the windows.
Oh, your toe caps are fantastic!!! I love those colours too and both of you look fabulous!

rottrover said...

YAY! YAY!! Booker and Asa are back!! We missed you so much!!

You were as well behaved at your grandpawrents house as Mr. Bertie was at his!! You'll have to go see him snoozing on his grandpa's lap. Speaking of laps, Booker, are you part rottweiller? You snuggle almost as good as us!! You sure helped your momma feel better more quickly! We do that, too.

Welcome back! And Happy New Year!!

Jazzi said...

We missed you while you were gone, welcome back!! Sounds like a great Christmas and trip and MAN!! you were busy taking care of mom. When I saw all those windows, I was thinkin how much fun that nose art was fur you!! LOL
Glad that Mom is better now and that the finger didnt need stitches!!


I Am HoneyBuzz said...

Welcome home Booker and Asa!! Boy, ya'll sure did have a sooper dooper visit, didn't you??!! Your grandpawrents house looks like it's made for all kinds of funness!! Please to tell your momma that I is very sorry she had the sickies and hope she is feeling better!

Big slurps - HoneyBuzz

Pee.S. I think that picture of you and Asa on the stairs is one of the best I've ever seen!

KB said...

Happy New Year to you too! It sounds like you had a great time at the grandparents house. Their house is just like ours with all those windows down at dog level and hard-wood floors/stairs. Gotta be careful on those stairs - they can be slippery!

Our dogs love our windows. They play guard-dogs all the time!

I'm glad that your mom is feeling better. Enjoy the start of 2011.

Deborah said...

Happy New Year!
Wow when it rains it pours! Hopefully things will start getting better!I am very glad the scissors were sterile and were not used, I would have passed out if they were used! LOL
Have a great day!

Minna Krebs said...

Happy New Year to you too, Booker and Asa!!!!

What a great Christmas Holiday you two had!!!! I hope your grandma got a bottle of Windex in her Christmas stocking.......cuz I can just imagine all da Nose Art you designed fur her on those windows!!!


Sarge said...

Hey Booker Man!
Wow, you had a great holiday season. I'm glad you got to do some snow zoomies. That's a ton of fun. Road trips are great too. You even had snuggles and all the good stuff. Welcome back!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Aksharaa said...

We missed ur fun post but this one was worth waiting for.
What a lovely, White Christmas you had!
Your Grampy n Granny's home is lovely :) :)We LOVVVEEE those tall windows.
You do nose art too? What a coincidence! We always try our paws..err..nose at it on the car windows, since we do not have such an elaborate canvas!

Mummy loves your toe caps! U guys are awesome ...u didn't try to lick those off?
So very sorry about Mummy's finger. Our Mummy says surgical scissors are way sharper. Thank Dogness, ur Mummy didn't need stitches.
And what is it with catching colds. The WHOLE of Blogville seems to be full of Mummies with cold sickies. Our Mummy is recovering from one too, though it wasn't very bad this time.

BTW, Mummy says you can say 'HAPPY NEW YEAR' the ENTIRE month of January. We suspect she has this rule in place because she is a lazy fuzzy bone and takes the entire month to wish everyone!!...don't tell her we said so!
Happy weekend,
Wags, Buddy,Gingin n Shadow

Samantha said...

OMD! Your poor Mamma - know you did all you could do to comforts her and we hope she is much better now! Happy New Year to you, Booker and Asa and family! It sounds like you had the superChristmas with the G-parents! I love that the snow gods came to visit you for Xmas - that's a big wow for SC!!! Whooeee! Nice pressie! And we love those toe cover-uppers!!! We have NEVER seen those! Very cool! And great holiday colors too! Well, tell your Mom to keep resting - hope she has the weekend off - so sorries she also cut her finger with scissors - ouchie. Mayhap Mom bettah stay in bed the whole weekend!
Hugs xoxoxo

Happy New Year! Ha! It's never too late ;)

Glad y'all had a terrific holiday!

Waggin at ya,

sprinkles said...

I'm so glad you had such a great time at Grandma & Grandpa's house. I'm wondering how your mom managed to get all those toe caps on and neither of you pulled them off? My boys would NEVER have stood for that! bol

I used to have a kitty who created lots of nose art for me on a certain window. He's gone now and I don't have the heart to clean the window. It's the only part of him that I have left. Well, that and his collar.

I'm so sorry your mom got sick. The worst is when you can't take an extra day or two off to just rest up a bit. Glad she's feeling better.

Yikes, the dropping of the scissors sounds sooooooo painful! Is it bad that I want to see the owie? I can look at stuff like that on other people all day long but I couldn't deal with it if it happened to me. I don't like to see my own blood.

Hope your mom's hand heals up super soonishly.

Only one more week and I'll get to use those fantabulous pens, pencils and folders y'all got me! And I put the Coconut M&M's in the freezer so I wouldn't eat them all before school started. Planning to bring one bag with me for a snack on my first day.

Zona said...

Oh no... so sorry your mom had the sickies AND hurt her paw. I hope she's better REAL fast!

Those toe covers... you don't bite them off? I loves to bite my nails.



Sagira said...

Sounds like you guys had a great time at the Grandparents house. Love your nail cover. hehe. :)

Tucker said...

Happy New Year! My Grammy and Grampy have steps too. But they are carpeted and they are swirly. Momma says the correct term is spiral. So they is fun to run up and scary to go down. I have steps at home that go down to the basement but I can't go down there. Only the kittehs can.
