Monday Musings ~ September 19, 2022

When I asked Norman if he realized he was leaving dog hair on the sofa, he blithely replied, “well isn’t that why it’s called fur-niture?”

Wishing you a pawsome Monday.

Because of all the hubbub getting ready for the pet therapy award ceremony last Friday and Norman’s subsequent ‘pawticipation’ at a hospital-sponsored event called Bark in the Park, we completely forgot that Friday was the Ninja’s 6th Gotcha Day (you can read her story here). I know, bad dog mommy. Soooo sorry Elsa, I hope all the one-on-one time spent over the weekend and the extra fish skin treats helped make up for my bad. Love you to the moon and back, Ninja❣️

Gotcha Day
I am not amused.

Hope you don’t forget anything important this week. Everyone at the Ranch sends you their best wishes for a totally ‘wagnificent’ Monday.

Live, love, bark! 🐾

  1. Chia:Happy 6th GD, Elsa. No one cared enough to record mine.
    Lucy: Please don’t say GD, Chia. That’s not nice. Say Gotcha Day. Happy Gotcha Day, Elsa! *wags*
    Chia: GD, GD, GD!

      1. It’s true, Miss Monika. Chia doesn’t even know the other thing that abbreviation means, and sometimes I have to get a little rough with her to make her listen. But now she knows I won’t hurt her, so she turns my correction into a game. *sigh*

    1. Oh trust me, she needs no encouragement about guilt trips or tips-she’s quite adept at being a world class travel agent able to send anyone on a trip at the drop of a hat! Norman has the whole ‘fur-niture’ thing down as well as Elsa has sending me on guilt trips. 🤣

    1. I think all pet-parents have that fur-niture issue. And we probably wouldn’t have it any other way. 😉

    1. Thanks for the good wishes. Yeah, they both know where it’s at. ☺️Hope the project has gotten off to a good start. Happy Monday.

      1. For sure 🙂
        And oy… already running into interesting stuff… You have to wonder at people who do renovations but don’t follow codes…
        Happy what’s left of Monday!

  2. Gotcha, Elsa! I bet you think your Mom forgot your Gotcha Day? Ha. She was just waiting to see if you remembered to say something first. (Maybe too late to use this reason this time around…but worth saving in case it happens again lol) Happy Monday, Monika!

    1. Happy Monday right back atcha, Bruce. Yeah I was so caught up with stuff with Norman last week, I totally spaced it out. Felt really badly about it. Poor thing.

    ***nose bopss*** BellaDharma an {{{huggiess}}} BellaSita Mum

    1. She enjoys playing with that toy but mostly because Norman loves it so much. Thanks for the sweet greetings. You’re so kind. 😻

  4. Happy Late Gotcha Elsa and Norman – you are one smart guy – of COURSE fur-niture was made to be covered in fur and we do our best to make sure of that right??? Right!

    Hugs, Teddy (and Mom Pam)

    1. I think he does double-time on the fur some days! Happy Monday and thanks for the Gotcha Day greetings.

    1. Elsa says thanks for the Happy Gotcha wishes. Reality says so on the dog hair, that’s for sure. LOL Happy Monday.

    1. Thanks. She’s showing some minute silvering around her lips. My girl is getting older but she still has the spunk of a puppy most days.

    1. I know, right? It’s hard to comprehend the time she’s been here. Some days it seems like forever and other times seems like just yesterday. Happy Monday.

  5. That is why it’s called fur-niture. You’re so handsome and smart, Norman.

    ♪♫Happy Birthday to you,♪♫
    ♪♫Happy Birthday to you,♪♫
    ♪♫Happy Birthday Dear Elsa,♪♫
    ♪♫Happy Birthday to you.♪♫

    I linked this post to Awww Mondays.

    Have a fabulous day and week. Scritches to the pups, a smooch to Norman and a big hug to mom. ♥

    1. Thanks for the birthday greetings and the smooch for Norman. We hope you have a ‘furbulous’ Monday, Sandee. And thanks for the Monday link.

    1. That what Norman thinks…goodness knows ‘fur-niture’ isn’t for uprights. Thank you for the Gotcha Day wishes. Elsa seems to have forgotten the slight.

  6. Happy Happy Belated Gotcha Day Elsa!! Don’t feel bad, I was just working on a blog post for Levi that I was going to put up on Wednesday, until I realized Wednesday is Roary’s Gotcha Day! I had completely forgotten!! Ugh!!

    1. I felt like such a heel, lucky she doesn’t hold grudges. Well, not too much. Especially when fish skins are used to erase the memory. 😆

Feel free to bark your thoughts...but no growling please.
