I absolutely love every one of these and would love to play with all of you sweet buddies and I listen to my Mom all the time and talk to her a lot! I also love to see my great Uncle every day and he is very kind to me, also! Sure hope you are all doing well and have another great day and weekend! Hope to hear from our Glue Squad buddies ASAP! Hope all of you are having good weather and we are having quite a bit of fog lately! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • :-) Dr. Pia you always make me smile.... seeing this absolutely, absolutely darling photos is so uplifting! Oh my goodness your clan sleeping together, Minnow being loved by your Gato ...and all those other heartwarming images, gives me the desire to want to paint.
    Winnie the Pooh certainly is wise!

  • Hello Dr. Pia and Minnow and Luna,
    Love seeing all the kids today and with beautiful quotes. I am so sorry for being late today----all I can say is there better be giant biscuits at the end of the rainbow after my nursing this week. I loved seeing the photo of the Sunflower also. That is Mom's favorite flower, and I love to dig them up. Hope you are all enjoying your Thursday. Yahoo, it is almost football weekend!!! Have a GEM of a day.
    Love and licks,
    Ruby
