Excitement and Best Friends

We interrupt our regular post to say that the world has gone crazy in our house today.

You see, our Aunt C and Uncle D are expecting their first baby, our human cousin and Aunt C went into labour in the wee hours of the morning. So now we are all waiting for this baby girl to arrive. We fear it will be a very long day for us!

Our house is in extra chaos because the Big Guy (Lady's dad who refuses to be called a grandpa to dogs) our Grammie and their 2 labs (Tendra and Barley) are currently packing up and driving to stay with us. They live 650 km away or about 400 miles, so it is a big drive. They will be arriving later today.

Life will be chaos, and hopefully all good chaos and we will do our best to stay up to date. At least if we are gone for few days, we will have lots of adventures to share. 4 dogs in the house, now that could be fun (Lady is hoping Man will see that 3 could be do-able).

Please send all your good thoughts to our Aunt C and soon to be human cousin for an easy and safe delivery! Please send good thoughts to Uncle D. He is gonna have to deal with a cranky Aunt C (whom we love very much, but when she is cranky, look out!)

Today Ranger has organized Best Friend's Day.

The best friend's (besides the cats and in my semi-chaotic state this morning I can't find a picture of them together) in our house were Loki and Gemini. While Loki disliked Gemini the first few weeks she was with us, they grew to be the best of friends and they were always snuggled together. As I have said before, Gemi was so connected to Loki that when he got sick, she got sick too. It was just the anxiety of knowing he was sick (we had everything and then some tested). That was her love and she mourned for his loss greatly (she would sit and cry).

  12. From our corner of the world, we send those good thoughts to your Aunt C and soon to be human cousin! And peaceful thoughts too!

    And I enjoyed reading about Gemi and Loki -- The bond dogs share is always is as real and tangible as when people share it too.

  13. I hope that life calms down but a new little baby in the family is worthy of great celebration. I also love your Best Friends story. I think that our current two, R and Shyla, are the best friends of any pair of dogs we've ever had, except for the pair of littermates who were our very first dogs.

  14. What a great best friends story!!

    I hope that you have lots of fun along with the chaos!! Prayers being sent for safe delivery on your new human cousin!

  15. Hope everything goes well for Aunt C and soon to be baby!!

    Aroo to you,

  16. Good luck with the new human in the family! Almost as much fun as puppies! ;-)
