Not a relaxing saturday...

My mom woke me up very early today. She took a shower and then we went to my grandparents house. I went to my grandma's bedroom to say hello, then to the living room where my grandpa was watching tv and I said hello to him and then I went to the kitchen for my breakfast. And there was no breakfast for me. Then I saw my mom with my dress in her hand and I knew the meaning of that and I ran away to my grandma's bedroom again! She gave me a big hug and that let my mom to catch me!

Next thing... I was in the car and in my way to the Vet! Time again to see how my thyroid is working. He stole my blood... then a pawdicure and the butticure too! Half an hour later we were ready to go home.

My mom made a stop to buy some yummy yougurt with fruits. It is a small stand where you order from outside what you want. My mom took me with her. She ordered and then we were walking along the block until she got the yougurt. We went to the car and then... it did not want to unlock the doors. She tried... and tried... and tried... no luck. Soooo... yougurts in one hand and me on the other, we walked back to home. 24 blocks later we finally got here. And I was really hungry! I had my "breakfast" and then I took a looooong nap.

While I was sleeping, my mom took the other alarm control and went to get the car. That one did not work either! Then, she called to the place where the alarm was installed and a man came to her rescue... one hour later! He could open it but told my mom the "brain" had to be changed. She went to the place and it was changed.

When she came back, my grandma told her she wanted to go out to buy a pair of crocks for my grandpa and a box of Rice Crispies for a dessert. And I went with them. We visited lots of stores and... no Crocks... no Rice Crispies! Our last chance for the Crocks was a very expensive store... and of course we found them there! My grandma paid around 150 dollars for them!

Then... the cereal. Another expensive story. We found it at a store that sells imported food. 20 dollars for a box of Rice Crispies! And back to home... happy with our "treasures" and with empty wallets!

Lunch, nap and walkie!

Hello?? Who are you??

Do you want to be my friend??

Happy me...

Elvis was there!

One last sniffing before going home for my dinner!


Now, we have another issue. My mom uploaded the pictures from my walkie in the laptop. Deleted them from the camera... and then the camera died! She put it on the charger until the light said it was ready... and it is still dead!

Hmmm.... one more of those days, right?


My mom got her results. Very good ones!
The Doctor told her "I don't know what did you do... but you did it pretty well"!
Last year, her colesterol was so high that he told her she had to be careful.
This year, her levels are more than perfect!
I guess the healthy food and the treadmill have helped her a lot!


I hope you all are having a much better weekend!

I'm so glad your mom had a good report from the doctor!!!

But I am shocked that she paid 20 dollars for Rice Krispies! I hope she enjoyed her dessert!

Au and Target said...

it must be all those walks, Lorenza, that make your mummy all fit. Hope you have better luck, but enjoy the walkies!

Marg said...

Wow, Lorenza, that sounds like a terrible Saturday for everyone. But the greatest news was that your mom was OK. Health is such an important item. Take care and have a good Sunday.

MadameMoiselle said...

It's always good to have good news!!! Stay healthy girl !


Niamh said...

My goodness Lorenza! What an exhausting and expensive day. But we are glad to hear that your mom got a good report which is the most important thing.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Mango said...

That was not a fun day for anybody, but the results of mom's doctor visit were very good. So it all worked out, right?


♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

All we can say is we are so glad Mom had taken you out of the car with her to get that yougurt. You would have been so scared locked in the car with the dead brain.

That's a lot of money for cereal and crocs. We like Rice Krispies too and our Dad shares his with us.

Congrats to Mom on her tests - she did very well. Now let's hope your test results are good too.

Happy Sunday.

Frankie Furter said...

Lorenza that was a lot to have happened in one day.
Congratulations to your mom. THAT is wonderful. My mom and dad both take pills fur that cholesterol stuffs. They should do what your mom did.
Sorry you had to go to the VET and to have THOSE thingys done to you! SHIVER.
Your mom got new brains fur the car thingy????? Do you suppose I could get new brains fur my mom and dad??? They could use them, fur sure.
Sorry the Crocs cost so many green papers.
Sooooooo what did your grandma make with the Rice Crispies???
You certainly looked pretty in your dress and matching walkin String.

Madi and Mom said...

Mom and I are totally exhausted after reading how your mom had to spend her Saturday!!! OH my Dogs and Cats. Congrats on her good health report!! Well done Mom.
I expect walking 24 blocks is good exercise too but not when you have groceries and a Precious puppy to carry.
I'm astounded at the price of a box of Rice that 20.00 US Dollars? OMC we'd mail you some but after hearing how long it took for your Christmas cards to arrive the Rice Krispies would be stale. Hugs Madi and Mom

Minna Krebs said...

Whew! What a day, Lorenza!

Butt da bestest part is the good report your mom got from the Doctor! Way to go Lorenza-Mom!!!

Erika and Blair,xoxo said...

My goodness Lorenza I hope that the crocks and rice crispies last a LONG time. Living in mexico seems like an adventure everyday. I hope your Mom carried you home!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Lorenza, that was certainly a rather not relaxing day at all! We are glad your vet visit went well and your mom's health report came back good! $20 dollars for Rice Krispies? I had no idea the prices were like that. We hope you have a good Sunday! Lots of love, Holly and mom


Wowee Lorenza
Locked out, vet and expensive shopping.. geepers. I'm glad everything was fixed and momma had good results.

That's alot of money for cereal and crocs. Maybe woo should shop on or ebay to get them. I don't know but might be cheaper.


First, Me and my family would like to congratulate your Mom for good health, now she can have a little naughty food and start again on her healthy food and treadmill just like what my Mommy did.

The Army of Four said...

Wowzers, what a DAY! At least your mom 's health report was really good!!!

Happy tails!

Can't get over $20 for Rice Krispies. Wow!!

Amber-Mae said...

That's wonderful results from the human vet! I hope it stays that way for a long long time. Lorenza, love your dress! It's so purdy. I'm hoping the camera will wake up from the dead.

My mom loves Crocs but would die if she had to pay $150 for them. OUCH!

rottrover said...

Deborah said...

Yeah for your Mom!
What a crazy long walk and I can't believe you have to pay $20.00 for cerial. I complain if I have to pay $4.00. That is crazy.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

What a crazy day. We're glad your mom had a good report and hope you did too.

Sam said...

Sorry it was such a bad day! We are glad to hear that your Mom is doing better!

Is there anyway we can help you out with things? $20 bucks for Rice Crispies and 150 for crocs is amazing! If your not in a rush for things we could find them here for you!


Thor said...

What a day! I'm so glad to hear your mom had a good report!!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Wow, Lorenza, my head is spinning just reading about your busy day!

That's great news about your human's health report - well done to her! And I hope good news about your thyroid too?

Wyatt said...

It's a good thing that you were not in the car, when the doors wouldn't open!
$20 for Rice Krispies...OMD

Kari in WeHo said...

That sure is a lot of money for rice crispies!


Clive said...

Hi Lorenza

We're very glad your Mom got such good results - very well done to her!

Those Rise Krispies were very expensive! Murray loves helping to make chocolate rice krispie cakes here - it's one of the few sweet things he will eat!

Glad you weren't in the car when the locks failed - that was no fun for your Mom either!

take care
Clive & Co

I love it how your leash matches your ribbon!

I'm glad you had a nice time at the vet; I'm usually too scared to enjoy myself, or even to make new friends.


Bocci said...

First, congrats to your Mom on her great test results!
And sorry to hear about your tiring day, Lorenza...and you must have really had a craving for Rice Crispies-wow!

P.S. Glad the car's fixed-that happened to us this summer!

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

You have a lot going on at your DogHouse! Glad your mom got a good report card!
We love your dress.

sonia a. mascaro said...

Hi Lorenza,
I am so glad your Mom as a good news from the doctor!

I see that you have a busy day, isn't? Walking around is good for health.

Have a nice week ahead.
Kisses and hugs!

With the exceptional of your Mom's medical report, it sounded like a horrific day AND a very expensive one.

Here's to better days !

Hugs and yips,
Cappy and Ollie

Sam said...

Hi Lorenza, wow that's a lot of money for Rice Krispies and Crocs. Rice Krispies are less than $5 and Crocs are about $35 Canadian dollars. I bet your v-e-t bills are bill too. Oh well, you're well loved and that's what matters.

Amber DaWeenie said...

Relaxing????? Good grief! I say stay home and sleep next Saturday. Mom better do dat too. As for the Rice Krispies...dat's highway robbery!

Pauley, Middy, the Mr. or the Mrs. said...

Oh my, that sounds like a very stressful day! Yippee that your Mom had a good report. We LOVE your dress!

Hi, Lorenza -

That is great news reading that your Mom is healthy. We are guessing that walking 24 blocks to home certainly help keeping you both look slim and trim.

Mama was shocked that Rice Krispies are $20.00. Everything seems soooooooo expensive!

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
