Bitter Sweet...

Hey everydoggy, It's Mack and Mia's mom here. Man, it's been a crappy week and unfortunately I have some very sad news...

Last Thursday, I took Captain Fluffy Pants in for his 12 week check-up appointment and he tested positive for Feline Leukemia. I had to decide whether to let him live with this cancer as it slowly attacked his immune system not knowing if he would live 2 months or maybe a year at best and also wrestle with the possibility if I kept him that he would most likely pass this onto Luna and Midnight, therefore, I had to make the decision to put Captain Fluffy Pants down...
And after only having him for 2 months, boy it felt like I had had him forever. There will never be another cat like him, I don't know any 2 lb kitten that would stand next to big ol' goofy Mack and not even be scared. He would greet us at the door with Mack and Mia too! He was a cat with a dog spirit and man-o-man will he be missed...

Needless to say, my boy didn't quite grasp what happened and kept asking if Captain Fluffy Pants would be better soon to come home. I did my best to explain the reality of death to a 5 year old in the most gentle way I could. He kept asking me if that meant he wouldn't have a kitten to try to help my boy not feel the pain of loss - maybe it was more from confusion and not understanding why Captain Fluffy Pants was sleeping with him the other night and now he would not ever again. I got my boy another kitten. Not to ever forget about our little striped cat dog, but to help Bryan's longing for his OWN pet, which Captain Fluffy Pants was...

So, the very next day when I took Luna and Midnight to get tested (Both are negative) and to my surprise the vets' cat actually had kittens and she had brought them in to try to find them homes. I felt like it was a sign. So, I made a hasty decision and decided to surprise my boy. I picked out the fluffiest, calmest, fattest kitten and now I would like to introduce you to Milo. He is 12 weeks old. Milo has some very little, but oh so BIG paws to fill...
My belly? What about MY belly? I think Mia and I are from the same litter...
FINE! It's true! I ate my food and I ate my brothers and sisters portions TOO! Don't JUDGE me!
Please admire my best evil eye look. It's just like Captain Fluffy Pants' evil look he did when he had to look at that big blonde doofus coming down the hall.

Deep Creek Lake

HEY EVERYDOGGY! I KNOW....I KNOW....OH MY DOG it's been such a long time! But our momma has a really really good excuse, it's because she got's her new job and all and she has only 4 more classes for her MBA degree so she has been putting herself all in work and school. HEY, trust me, I don't like it either, but what can I do? lock her in my crate with the computer? WAIT A SECOND...that's not a bad idea!!

Anyhoo, somewhere between all the school and work our mean momma took us CAMPING!
We are gonna go fishing??
Where are the fish? Show me the fish? I LIKE FISH!
The fishies are in there, aren't they? Don't lie to me!
WHO'S READY FOR SOME ACTION???? There is our boy FUELING up!
HRMPH! HURRY UP AND TAKE THE PICTURE WOMAN, so we can get this show on the road!
OOOOOO WEEEEEE! Dirty, Merky, and muddy lake water, that's what I'm talkin' about.
Man, seriously, my little boy find the most nommiest sticks EVER!
NEENER - NEENER - NEENER. I got the stick, DOOFUS!
Oh yeah, Mia, I'll get you back!
Yeah, yeah, let's see who can swim out the farthest and then first one back to the beach WINS the other doggys portion of nommys tonight. OKAY? DEAL!
Still going....
OOOOO, Mack, you are so going to get it when we get back to the tent!
Mack: Mom? I'm scared.
Mia: Mom, please tell me I don't actually have to sleep in the same tent with the blonde dork...please....

Wags and Woofs,
Mack and Mia
PeeS. We really missed everydoggy. Momma says she won't be able to come back as often as she was before, but she says she will make an effort to come back at least once or twice a week. Sheesh - we will take what we can get, ya know...

Wordless Wednesday....NOT!

Yuh - I know - It's been awhile....okay fine...a LONG while, but we are all still alive....alive and kickin'!
Yuh, even Captain Fluffy Pants is alive! But, only because I let him!
He has been getting more and more cocky. Look at how he looks at me with his evil stinky beady little eye balls!!
He is not even scared of me and he weighs 2 lbs. and I weigh 86 lbs. THAT IS JUST WRONG!
Hey Mia! Hey Mia! Hey Mia! MIA! Hey Mia! DUDE! Say Something! OOOOO, whats that? YOU CAN'T BREATHE? Fatso? ME? Who are you calling FATSO, TUBBY BUTT?!
HRMPH! Just me and my red ball. Yup. Thats all.
Life per usual at the house...

What is his name you ask?...

Hey everydoggy out there!! It's Mack and Mia's boy, Bryan! I know everyone has been waiting on the edge of there seats to find out what we decided to name the new member of our family. Mom and dad kept trying to persuade me to name the kitty what THEY wanted, but I REFUSED! I have been waiting my whole life to have this opportunity to have an animal that I got to name all by myself!
Besides...why wouldn't they want a dignified little dude like me to name him?
I take this naming business VERY seriously!
Even, when I was a little dude....okay fine, I'm still a little dude, but when I was even SMALLER...I searched far and wide for the perfect name that I would someday be able to bestow upon a furry furend...
It took a WHOLE LOT of concentration.
A WHOLE LOT of pondering...
Hours and hours of mind numbing brain storming...
I mean I can be trusted to pick a GOOD name! I'm not crazy or anything...
I made sure that I ate plenty of food to fuel my thoughts...
I even was thinking about it while I was digging for gold nuggets!! Don't be alarmed! Jack, tell TG that a wise man (my grandpa) once told me..."You can pick your friends. You can pick your nose. But you can't pick your friends nose"...So, we didn't name the little dude 'booger'...
I decided to name MY new kitty.....CAPTAIN FLUFFY PANTS!!!
WHAT?!?!!?!?!?! CAPTAIN WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!!
Did woo hear that Mia?? BOL! BOL! BOL! BOL!
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahah! Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
OH MY DOG!! I can't stop laughing!!!!!! MAKE IT STOP!!!!!!
HAHA! Sucker! Woo are not so big and bad now, huh?!
Mia, will you hold me? Mack is laughing at me!
Hee - Hee - Hee - Hee...sorry....CAPTAIN FLUFFY PANTS....I'm with Mack on this one!!
That is like the silliest name ever! Woo are never going to scare anydoggy with a name like that. I sure am glad that YOU are the new LOSER in the house! ROOKIE!
This is like the first thing we ever did agree about, FATSO!
Yuh, I know, DOOFUS!
Thats something to drink to!!
ROUND TWO! Still drinking!
Captain Fluffy Pants. HRMPH! How am I supposed to beat up Mack with a name like that!
HRMPH! I need to think of a Plan B to get back that stoooopid yellow labraDORK! How dare he laugh at CAPTAIN FLUFFY PANTS! This was the greatest honor to be named by the little boy of the house. I will do him proud!
Mack, woo better watch your ankles!!
Wags and Woofs,
Mack and Mia...and special guest appearance by our boy Bryan...
