A Brief Update: All is Well! (But still Out of the Office!)

Thanks to everyone for all your comments/concerns about me getting fed. All is well; Mom has just been busy staying up all night talking to Granny and getting no sleep doing Family Stuff, and I have been busy taking care of things at home, so I haven't flown out to visit her.

Oh, and for the record? Mom wasn't able to take AirFiona when she went out to North Carolina, because when I was doing the pre-flight check I noticed that we were Completely Out of dry roasted peanuts (and dog biscuits), and as EVERYONE knows, no plane is allowed to take off without its required allotment of dry roasted peanuts. So... Mom had to fly Delta. And she said something about being in steerage, surrounded by pigs and chickens. Or something. Anyhoo, I am hoping that I can have AirFiona up and running to pick her up tomorrow. Otherwise she will be subjected to Purgatory the Atlanta airport. Again. So I've got to make this quick and go back to working on the plane. (Maybe I should just get a new sheet of paper and start over...)

But to put your mind at ease, Dad has been Very Good about following his day-by-day instructions, and there have been No Issues with me getting fed (and I haven't even had to work on my pathetic "Feed Me" face!), and TaiChi and Bufus are being well taken care of, too. So all is Very Well on this front.

Mom has called regularly, and apparently she misses us quite a bit, because she's been spending time with my cousin Galen, a small labradoodle gal. Somehow she's been bred to be small; she's only like 35 lbs. Teeny!

And I'm not in the least bit jealous, because I know Mom is just using Galen as a surrogate me! There will be more pictures when she gets home!

But I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm not wasting away, and that Dad is doing a Great Job taking care of us all. Although he's ready to have Mom take the 2am TaiChi shift... *grin.

But thanks for all the invites and offers of food. When I get AirFiona up and running, I will see about visiting people - because I'd really like to visit Pawsylvania! Although Mom says she'll wave to the Thundering Herd when she flies by (again, maybe we can come back for a visit!)

More later!

Oh, and in the meantime, we'll follow Mango's suggestion of the Out of Office sign...

*kissey face*

Great update!!! Made my mommy smile a lot. (She leaves dad a full sheet of instructions when she leaves me home for just a FEW HOURS!!!!)
All sounds good at your place Fiona. Whew!!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose and mom

Good to hear that everything is going well in your Mom's absence!

Take care

Mango said...

Good to hear you are getting enough food, but you sound a bit, um, wound up. Maybe you are drinking too much coffee lately?


BRUTUS said...

We think that the last Air Fiona needs to be sent to eht "permanently retired" hangar as unfit to fly. May we suggest a heavier paper for its next incarnation? Think the FAA is coming out with new giudelines for paper aircraft...

Hi, Fiona!
I knew it!

Kisses and hugs

We are pretty sure we saw her fly over and we were all howling at the plane. We hope she heard us.

P.S. - The Atlanta airport is not purgatory. it is where you go AFTER purgatory if you do not behave.

P.S.S. (or is that P.P.S.) - Our word if the day is pronks - we don't know what it means, but we like the sound.

Hey Fiona,
Glad to hear your dad's doing a great job! You never know with dads, when they're left in charge sometimes they can pull it off okay and other times the entire household goes to crap.

You are lucky things went so smoothly while Mom was gone. Our mama is leaving tomorrow for her annual girls retreat and we'll be going through treat withdrawal :(
