Frenzied Friday!!

Well here we are the end of another week.
The “Boss Man” has left to go to Florida and won’t be back until next weekend.  Woo hoo 😀 😀
My family and I have the pleasure of looking after my four-legged co-worker and daytime companion,
BENTLEY a.k.a “Marley”, “Demon”, “Diablo” just kidding but this puppy is so full of pep and vinegar!!!!!

I wrote a post a few months ago about my furry friend and co-worker BMR. He was not quite two when passed away, he was a very young dog with old dog bones and a weakening heart.

We all miss BMR terribly and will never forget him.  He was a truly remarkable dog, the vet felt he had been in pain for quite some time due to his thinning bones, but none of us ever saw it, he still loved going for walks ,playing catch and he loved his stuffed toys, all we saw were his loving eyes and his love for everyone he met.


Within a month or so of BMR’s passing, Bentley arrived.

Life hasn’t been the same since for anyone 😀

He is a Golden Retriever who thinks he’s a Jack Russell Terrier, jump, jump, jumping and running at the speed of lighting with his bum close to the ground like a rabbit.

He really does remind me of Marley from that fantastic book and movie Marley and Me!

When I leave the office without him, out of spite 😀 , he takes pieces of paper out of the trash can and chews them up into smaller pieces, as quickly as he can I’m sure and leaves the office floor littered with little bits of paper, and sits in the middle of his newly made mess with quite an innocent look on his face 😀
Just the other day he was left in the house alone for the first time out of his crate and he chewed his bed to pieces, it looked a little something like this:


Our two dogs and two cats were taken by surprise this evening when Bentley arrived, it will be quite a busy house over the next few days!!!

One of the first things he will learn is to stay out of my garden!!!

Fortune cookies and Gossip

Today is Wednesday and I’m usually at work, but my boss is in Florida this week so I thought I’d play hookie today.

I met my mum for lunch at “The Hong Kong Buffett”.  So much for my “diet plans” I am so full and so bloated at the moment couldn’t wait to come home and quickly put on my big girl pants 🙂 No treadmill today Pam I can hardly move.

We had a really nice time, chatting and gossiping about my brother and my sister and how unfortunate it is that they are not as wonderful as myself…LOL

But on a serious note

Just kidding 😀

Mum was really good , making all the right choices, she even chose to have fruit pffftttt, such a show off she didn’t even have one of those yummy sticky twisted cookies,  not me , anything fried and gooey that’s what I chose to put on my plate ,  and then I went back for more.

I am so ashamed 😦

But the good news is I did have 4 little cups of green tea and a full glass of water with lemon in it. 😀

and then

The Fortune Cookie Moment –  mine said “You are capable of building a thriving business venture.” and Mums said “Keep your eyes open, you never know what you might see” thoughtful.

and if you add in the bedroom to those well….laughing so hard I’m glad I went to the ladies room first 🙂

Thank you for lunch Mum and the AWESOME shopping spree at the dollar store. tee hee hee 😀

I was going to post a couple of pictures of my dollar store finds but there seems to be no memory card, the joy of living with children that think what theirs is theirs and what mine is theirs too….that will be a post for another day!

The Sleepover with Beeemmmuuuuurrrrr

I started working for “the man” about 3 years ago, he had 2 dogs lovely dogs Lincoln and Caddie short for Cadillac, they became my co-workers and companions.

Lincoln was 17 when he passed away.  Caddie and I were left with just each other.  Caddie was only 7, and had gone to the groomer , and “the man” had received a phone call that Caddie could not stand up and his breathing was erratic and they were taking him to the vet ,  Caddie passed away just hours later, he had tumors throughout his body, he never showed any signs of being ill,  some of the tumors started to bleed and there was really nothing that they could do for him, my daughter and I went to the vets office to say our good byes. 

It was just awful for the next few weeks, “the man” started to look for a puppy against my wishes 🙂 I felt he should find a dog from the shelter,  however he found  the most gorgeous puppy and had brought him home within a few weeks and named him BMR. Beemur

BMR (Beemer)

He has been my constant companion ever since, spending 6 – 7 hours a day together.

I often say to people, that “the man” has this thought in his head that  BMR is his dog, silly man, he is soooo my dog. 🙂

So back to the story

“The man” goes to Florida once a month for a week, and my family and I care for BMR,  he’s been having sleepovers at our house since he was “knee-high to a grasshopper” 

I already have 2 dogs, 2 cats, a degu and a rat and various fish, the children and Paul.

It makes for a very busy household especially at supper time.

Tonight he is sleeping over because “the man” has gone to the big city to do his Christmas shopping, attend a fancy Christmas Party, see the dentist, and visit his mother.  🙂

As soon as we got home and I let him out of the car, he bolted for the front door and could hardly contain his excitement, my two dogs were on the other side of the door joining in on the joyous reunion.   The barking, howling and shenanigans began.  Running circles around each other, jumping, and yes more barking.  Bmr  has a great night so far, and has as usual made himself quite at home again.

My “old” dog Sim’s is sometimes not the most patient of girls, so there can be quite a bit of growling and quick barks, never bites just lots of warning signals, Scamps is a small dog and loves to bark when BMR is here, he just gets so darn excited 🙂

He is mindful of the cats when he visits they have the power and authority to put any thoughts of play or mischief out of his head.

They are finally all asleep after lots of frolicking in the snow, ball chasing, and rough housing outside,  Sim’s is in her chair, and Bmr and Scampie are on a big fleecy blanket on the floor.  Soon I’ll go to bed and they’ll all be there fighting for space and Paul will try to gain some control of the sheets and his piece of real estate on the proverbial bed.

Always wanted to use that word in a sentence proverbial …….

Bmr will be back again in January for a whole 10 days this time. Can’t wait.
