Guess what, I am spending time at Grandma's house right now! Mom had a LOT of stuff going on this week, and wouldn't have been able to give me much attention, so she left me at Grandma's last weekend when we were down, and she's picking me up again this weekend. I can't wait to see her tomorrow. I am, however, having a great time playing with Maya (aka. my bestest buddy!)
Next week is my Auntie J's birthday, so Mom and friends are having their annual fondue (in her honour) this weekend.
On another animal related note, a student of Mom's had to have her beloved 14-year old dog put to sleep last night, and she was taking it very hard. Mom asked her if she was ok to stay at school today, and had a hard time watching her cry in class. She had a hard time not trying to break down herself. :S She loved her dog very much and because she knows that Mom is an animal nut too, it was often that she would talk to Mom about her dog. About a week ago, her student told her that the dog had gone for surgery and stopped eating. This reminded Mom so much of when Fluffy went for surgery and didn't make it. It's times like this that makes it difficult to be a teacher and have to maintain your composure. What a terrible time of year for this to happen. :( Of course, Mom's thoughts are with her student right now.
On a happier note, Mom picked up my photo at the SPCA after work today! She is disatisfied with it, but at least it went toward a good cause.
