A cool present...

Another hot day and I had to stay at home. No walkie for me today. I am not happy. Hmmmm...

This morning my mom went to Office Depot to check some chairs for her office. She did not find the ones she wanted. But, she found something very interesting for her... and she bought it. Not cheap but she said... "WTF (?)... this is going to be my birthday present"...

A station for the laptop! It has a fan that cools the computer. It is ideal to put on her legs.

I had to check it...

Is this the best present that you could get for yourself??

It has a little base for the mouse. My mom is lefty and she is happy that the base goes out to the left side!

Here she is with her new toy... It looks big, but is very light and... no more hot legs!

Now that she is enjoying it... I can have a good sleep while she is blogging!

Have a good night

I know how disappointing it is not to get a walk due to the stupid weather!

I only got one on Sunday since it was soooooo tropikhal here!

That is khwite the KHOOL pressie!

My Doggy Nanny will be happy to see your mom is a lefty too! She always khomments when she sees others writing with the 'correct' hand!


houndstooth said...

I feel your pain on the no walks! It was not only hot here, but it was stormy too! I have serious cabin fever!

What a pawsome present!

Sonic said...

My Aunt Jol is a lefty too! It makes it difficult to use chopsticks next to her when crammed into small tables.

Not that I can use chopsticks anyway, cos I don't have any thumbs.


Teddy Bear said...

We have to wait till it's dark before walks now. The hot weather is no fun.:( Is your Mom enjoying hew new present?:)

Bella the Westie said...

That is a really good idea! I had never seen that before. thank you for sharing :)
I hope you had a nice rest.

Love, Bella.

Mr Koda MD said...

My Ma is a lefty too! They are not too uncommon! I don't use the mouse so I am No-Pawed.

Hope you had a restful nap - Mum would sure like your warm computer to warm her up!

Lola said...

Blog Mom and Daddy are both lefty, too. They switch off with the mouse though. They got used to doing it righty when sharing computers with righties. I don't always know what makes humans happy when it comes to presents. You'd think she'd prefer a nice chew toy, but if this is what she wants, I guess it's good she got it. I hope you get a break in the weather soon.

wags, Lola

Mango said...

I think that is a good pressie because it means more time on the pooter for YOU, right? Hope you get some relief from the hotness. That is no fun.


Naqvee said...

i miss my dog Lucky so much wen i come to your blog it's really painful seeing you smile the same way as Lucky used to do! i'm sorry.

Maggie Mae said...


I is sorry it is so hot for you, it must be sad not to get your walkies in. My mom has the same thing for her laptop and she luvs it!

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

Mayzie said...

Oh, my mom says that looks like a GREAT birthday present for your mom. She never knew there was such a thing and might have to look for one for herself. Although, I do have to say that you don't look very much impressed with it at ALL.

Wiggles & Wags,

Hi Lorenza
It has been raining here for days. We have been stuck in the house too.
That is a nice leg cooler your mom bought herself.
Love Ruby & Penny

Madi and Mom said...

Lorenza we love it!!! What a nice thing for mom to get herself...we believe she has a b-day coming up soon??!! Your mom is a lefty well let me tell you that is special you see my human sister is a lefty too.
Mom always tells her she is the only one in the family in her 'right' mind. LOL Mom is so funny sometimes.
Happy Monday,
Madi and Mom

Toffee said...

Very clever of your mom. Hope it cools off so you can enjoy a walk soon.

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! it is a COOL Present but for WHO???? Mmmmm You might need to negotiate for something good n tasty, Lorenza. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

BRUTUS said...

What a concept! You see here, mom just puts the laptop ON me! Ha! No hot legs for her, just a hot Frenchie! Then again, if I would entertain sitting anywhere other than ON her lap, then maybe she might not be forced to do such a thing.. Hmmm...

I'm so sorry that it is so very hot there Lorenza! I don't like to go outside in the heat. I prefer the snow, but we only have rain right now, which I don't mind.

Happy belated Birthday to your Mom!

Hope you weather gets nicer soon so you can go on walkies. Until then just sit back and enjoy those Frosties!

Hugs, Tessa

Martha and Bailey said...

What a cool present - might as well buy yourself a birthday present our mum says!
It is true that the laptop does get hot - we hope your mom enjoys her new station.
We will need to look at getting one of those.
We have seen cushions for laptops but we did think that might be quite warm in the summer.
Martha and Bailey xx

Joe Stains said...

Mom needs to get one of these things too, she is always whining about hot legs. Humans are so silly.

sonia a. mascaro said...

What a great present!
Love your pictures, dear Lorenza.
You always looks lovely!
Kisses and hugs,
Sonia @ Flora.

Minna Krebs said...

that is a very fancy looking laptop stand....your mom is very clever to spot that at the store.

Nows she can be more comfortable while blogging!


Anonymous said...

WOW~!!! That is furry cool! Now, she doesn't have ANY excuse not to blog!

Dory and the Mama said...

Silly hot weather...We go for walkies like WAY early in the morning now that the heat is here.

Mama also likes your Mama's laptop thingy (AND she is a lefty too!)

Smileys & Snuggles!

The Army of Four said...

That looks cool. Hee hee hee. Get it?
Sorry it's too hot for walkies! :(

Eric said...

Lorenza, that's poop not having walkies. Hope you get twice as many tomorrow instead.

Strange present the squares give themselves don't they.maybe sit close to it and see if it cools you too.

Wiry loves Eric xx

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Ya Mom sometimes you just have to treat yourself. You are so worth it..

Big Sloppy Kisses

3 doxies said...

That face of yours just cracks me up...hehehe! I didn't know they made those things, that is pretty cool. Now, I wished we still hads our laptop...dang it!

Clive said...

Hi Lorenza

We love the computer thingy that your Mom got - hot laptops on legs are no fun at all!

Hope your weather cools a little as well and you get out again!

take care
Clive and the NSLM

Three Dogs Long said...

What a pawsome prezzie! Mama hears you bout the hot legs!! Hmmm, maybe we need to save our kibble money & buys her one!!

Hope the weather improves, so you can get out for your walkies!

((hugs)) your friends,
Oskar, Schatzi & Xena

Sam and Pippen said...

Our mom is a lefty too! How weird is that???

We aren't sure about the present either - we think she would have been happier with some really good tasting dog biscuits... but that's just our opinion!

Sam and Pippen!

the booker man said...

miss lorenza,
if you snooze by the lap top holder thingie, will the fan blow on you, too? that would be totally awesome. heehee.
i hope it cools down some so you can go back on your walkies. do you have a little pool to go swimmies in?
the booker man

pee s -- i am so embarrassed that my mama posted that picture on my bloggie!

Teddy said...

That's a good idea to get that to keep the legs cool. My mom has a desktop, so doesn't have that problem, but knows how hot those laptops get.

You're cute when you're napping, Lorenza.

JackDaddy said...

Why I think your mom has pretty hot legs already! :)

Bocci said...

That is a cool present, especially for such hot weather! Your Mom is smart!
And Lorenza, you're such a pretty girl - Is it too hot for dresses?
Your buddy,

Life With Dogs said...

I've always wanted to try one of those. Are you digging it?

Holly and Khady said...

Aren't those laptop lap thingies the best? Our mom has one too and loves it! Plus, it helps keep the laptop from overheading from sitting on her legs!

hero said...

The weather really sucks, huh!.. but good to hear mom got a new toy.

Licks, hero

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Looks like the perfect thing for you to lie on on a hot summer day!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We're still walking Jan here but it sure is work. She huffs and wants to sit down every two steps. Not that there's anywhere to sit. This heat and humidity sure make it hard to exercise her!

What a nice present your mom gave herself. Or is that your present and you just let her use it since she helps you blog?

Marg said...

It is hot here Lorenza so we understand why there wasn't a walk. We don't want you having a heat stroke.
That looks like a great new gizmo for your Mom's laptop. Our mom does that sometimes, goes and buys her own birthday present. Why not.
Have a great day.

Mack said...

I think that is a super birthday present for your momma!
We don't go on walkies here either. The humidity is BAD!!!

Dip-Dip and The Bridge said...

Wow, that is a pretty great present!
Those laptops can get really hot on your legs after a while, it must be great so sit there with the fan on.
Wags, Dip Bridge and Elliot xx

Oskar said...

Humans are silly with the things they buy! I'm sorry it's too hot for walkies.

Rambo said...

Hey Lorenza,
maybe you can sit on top of that thingy when you are hot.....he he.
Hope your Mom enjoys her present.

Maggie and Mitch said...

What a nice gift for your mom! If it makes her happy then it's well worth it!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch
