Monday Meanderings.

Up early with my bride, then she was off to the truck company.

Got a call from the Vet this morning and she said the blood work had come back on Sadie & Rigg’s, She said  everything looked good so far and to keep them on the medicine until it is gone, and then bring them both in for a final check up, but she says she doesn’t expect any problems. It looks like we all got lucky on this one.

Mom Broke the news to Rigg’s this morning about his Christmas behavior.


That's right Riggs, Santa checked his list and though he overlooked some of the stuff from this year, well the last two weeks rather did you in.  Remember last weekend?  1st thing in the morning you stole a stick of butter off the counter, swallowed the thing whole wrapper and all.  Then at dinner you took half a pot roast right off the plate on the cook station.  Does any of this sound familiar?

Ok I remember, but I already  paid for that.  That wrapper didn't feel so good coming out and I spent time in doggy jail for the roast and I did try to tell Samantha I was sorry that she didn't get any dinner.

But maybe next time she'll be a little quicker at coming to dinner.


                                 DOGGIE JAIL.

I'm sure you didn’t like doggy jail, but I was very angry at you and thought maybe you would learn a lesson, but of course I was wrong. Friday night Andy calls me and said we have a problem, Riggs and Sadie somehow got the D-con from under the sink.  I get home and poison is all over the place.  Do you have any idea how frightened I was for the 2 of  you ?

I know Mom, that was really stupid of us, but we paid for that too.  We had to go to the doctors office, he poked

us, he stuck us with needles, he stole our blood and gave us shots and pills.  Wasn't that enough punishment?

And now we both have to take a bunch of pills every day ! And I know since I'm such a big guy that little bitty Sadie is much worse off than me.  But no Christmas presents, that doesn't sound right. Santa has to know I'm not really naughty just impulsive.  Yeah that's right impulsive. You'll see we'll both be okay.

I'm sorry Mom and Dad that I cost you so much right at Christmas and scared you so bad, I'll try to be better tomorrow.


Love Riggs (and Sadie too)

Never a dull moment with our boy Rigg’s and his little partner in crime.

This afternoon when Donna is on her way home from work I am meeting her at the flooring store and we’ll try to pick out 140 sq. feet of floor covering for the trailer, Then my bride says she will by me a nice dinner. Boy did I ever get lucky.

I hope everyone is having a good week and be safe out there. Sam & Donna..



  1. He does look remorseful, doesn't he??? At least for this week anyway.

  2. Awe...don't be too hard on the convicts...They couldn't have known their escapade was going to cost you $250, right?? What sorrowful faces...
    Good luck on the flooring...and have a great dinner out!

  3. Riggs, play your get outa jail card!! You know the big slathering tongue lick!!! It'll soften them up a bit.......

  4. Oh Mom and Dad, I know I scared you really bad but I'm really, really, really sorry. Please, please, please, let Santa come to our house.

  5. I love the way you refer to your wife as your bride. And I'm so happy to hear the puppy dogs are doing well.
    Betty and Joe

  6. Great news on the dogs. labs will get into everything if there is any possibility. Sam, you're getting old if "getting lucky" means being taken out to eat.

  7. oh Riggs..one day you will learn to not take things that don't belong to you!!..not to worry I am sure that Santa will show up at your house!!

  8. So sorry to hear of doggy woes! Our nephews lab had a habit of stealing and eating whole cobs of corn. Cost his dad thousands at the vet. Poison would be very scary. Our wee dog who passed last year was shaky and got poisoned as a puppy - we couldn't figure it out as we were careful( so we thought) - vet finds plastic pieces - turned out she was left in the car and was eating the plastic seats. And yes, it was poisonous to her. We hope they feel better soon.

  9. Boy do Riggs and Sadie every look sorry! Rigg's you're the older one you should be setting a good example for Sadie rather than leading her into trouble, or was it the other way around. Sadie leading you into trouble! You guys had better behave or you won't even get a little turkey tidbit at Christmas.
