Now that I am awake at 1 am from my meds stupor and looking so...so...well.... let me put it to you this way...during one of my naps...one of many today...I woke up to find pudge against my legs sleeping, when I woke her as I moved she looked up annoyed cause I woke her...and errr...she had the funniest look on her face, her fur right now is kinda long and it was all tweaked and smashed on one side of her face...she look like a sad...kinda pathetic...but much loved lil raggamuffin....and yes...I will admit it....I laughed.... so hard infact...that....I started to wheeze....lol But the payback was when I went to the rest room and caught my face in the mirror......my hair was all tweaked...kinda smashed into the side of my face, I had pillow and blanket lines all over my face....yup you got it....I looked like a pathetic... sad... raggamuffin.... I started to laugh and then the wheezing started... and needless to say...my inhaler was my best friend today :) lesson of the day....don't make fun of a lil defenseless dog....unless you look cuter than it does at the time.....Ha!

Hugs to you,
Julia

Rebecca said...

Gasp! I look just like my 4lb yorkie every morning. Everything is cattywampus ? and not so beautiful.

Our Mollie the Molinator could care less. She's content coiffed or mussed.

I need to have that kind of peace!

GET WELL!

Love Rebecca

My sweet sick Rose, I hope you are better girlfriend. I'm sorry, but I'm laughing out loud at you all tussed up blanket line down the face, a little dried drool. You sweet pooch is probibly looking at you laughing. It's good we can still laugh. I've been following the story of Chelsea on TV like everyone else. Heartbreaking, an outrage. I'm a parent & it sickens me the way our judical system works sometime. I pray for Kolleen & her family. Get better soon friend. Lisa

Sweet Rose,

I don't know where to begin to thank you for the kindness that you have always extended towards me in visiting and commenting. My anniversary was a spectacular event, just him and me, doing what we love best, and that is being together. We went antiquing, ate lunch and dinner out and just reveled in the fact that we have been together this long and still feel young. Thank you for your sweet comments, and I wish you many blessings of happiness forever!

Mille bisous, Anita

Hi Rose
Wow just catching up on all your posts... I am impressed :)
I will have a giveaway for 300 followers not posts - lol... I am no way near 300 posts!
I also went over to your friends blog... so sad. So very hard to understand.
Hope you have a wonderful evening and hope your wheezing has gone down.

Hi Rose Sweetie...
I am so sorry to hear you are under the weather. I will say some prayers that you will be feeling better soon my friend. At least you have little pudge to be sick with and I am sure he/she appreciates your warmth.

I have gone over and gave my deepest sympathies to Kolleen and her family and will be saying many prayers for Chelsea's family. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We are all family here, and we look after our family in time of need.

Please take care of yourself and let us know if there is anything we can do to help the family, if you hear of anything. Country hugs sweetie and so much love...Sherry

Hi sweet Rose- I hope you are feeling better. My cat gives me the same look when I move her off my bed- she thinks it's her bed. I am mailing your gift tomorrow. Can you believe it- what a tease I have been :)
