  • Hi Dr. Pia,
    Happy Thursday, and thanks for the great photos and quotes. My favorite is #7. You always uplift our day with your wonderful reflections. We needed this at our house to boost us up---you're the best!!!

    Tomorrow is "D" day--that is doctor day. My "Potty Patch" arrived also. This is assisted living for sure---fake grass in the house at night to pee.OMG!!!! I guess whatever is necessary--better than the floor. There was a fox in my yard last night. Guido needs his muscle around him. I'm sending a call for the "Glue Squad."

    Have a great Thursday!!!
    Love & licks,

  • Hi Dr. Pia,
    This post is so super. I liked each one, but if I have a favorite it is #6. First, it reminds you to be polite & listen plus humans talk tooooo much..People, really.
    Hey Basil, now we know what the "Potty Patch" is. Whew, not so bad. I thought they were going to put sticker on your wee-wee or something. My first winter in Illinois, I used the dining room as my "Potty Patch"..not a good idea. All those chair legs were so tempting (no lol on this one).
    Have a great day Glue Squad.
    Your Pal,

  • Hi Dr. Pia,
    As usual, great blog. I agree with my little buddy Basil. Photo # 7 is says it all
    Glad you ate well Basil. Hey, I bet you will like that Potty Patch on bad weather days, like when it is pouring buckets of rain, when the snow is real high or when it is real icy outside. I am going to send you as many positive thoughts as I can in hopes you have a good visit at the doctor. And remember each and every Glue Squad member will be praying and sending good thoughts your way. Keep us updated.
    Cora Belle, how did your trip around the ranch go? I bet you had a ball. And it sounds like you are going to have a great time with your visitors.
    You should put a poster up that says "Critters Beware. Cora-Belle will have back up from an official policeman. Be on your best behavior or you are going down"
    Well gang, I gotta go but I hope everyone has a fantastic day.
    Love to all,

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    And hello to you too Dr. Pia. My Daddy was a pilot and he often said, “When my ship comes in I’ll probably be at the airport.” If he is he’ll miss it for sure. I like those sayings you posted with the pictures but my favorite one is, “Cats are for chasing,” Kirby Bear. I have to stop and laugh at that one, hehehehehe. It was cooler yesterday but not cool enough for me. I like my days to be in the upper 40’s. Daddy says that he likes his days to be in the lower 70’s. Hummmm, that’s about his age now.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi Dr. Pia, Thank you so much for such a delightful set of photos, again! I love every one of them, especially #3&#7 of beautiful Minnow! This kind of blog posting sure makes the day start out beautifully! Hey buddy Basil, your Potty Patch sure sounds like a great thing for you to use, especially since there is so much snow there! Our thoughts and prayers are with you constantly and especially on Friday-my paws are crossed, too-DDR! Maddox and others, thanks again for your great comments! Dearest Cora-Belle, hope you are having more fun traveling all around your ranch again today! Is it raining down there like it is here? Sure wish the sun would come out again! Hope all of you Glue Squad buddies have a great day again! Dr. Pia, hope you and your family have a terrific weekend! Love to all, Jan and Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hello Sweet Dr. Pia,

She thinks she has me trained...ha ha
