shopping I will tell you all how angry I am with her at the moment Mum has started to take her Water Bottle back to bed with her as she is in a lot of Pain and also a bit cold, well that is no problem, she has a Fluffy one and it helps her go to sleep, no problem either. Well during the Night I woke up because I felt myself slide across the Covers and I could not understand at first why, you see it is a good Job that Mum has got her favourite Silk bedding on at the moment, so anyway there I am sliding along the Covers and then I realised it was Mum pulling me by my Tail, but, she is still sleeping? Well anyway I nipped her Hand to wake her up as I wanted her to let go of my Tail, well she sorts of wakes up and gets hold of my Tail again, so I growled at her, well it only turns out that Mum thought I was her stupid hot water Bottle, then she just pats my Head says sorry turns over and goes back to sleep, I am getting really worried about these Tablets Mum is taking she is doing some strange things sometimes, I mean I know my Tail is fluffy but how can she confuse me with a Hot Water Bottle? Then this morning she goes of and leaves me and she has told me that I have to have my Flea Treatment today as well AND she sprayed my Bed with that febreeze Stuff again What has a dog got to do to train it's owner?

Hi Gissi my little sweetie!It sounds like you had a rough night last night.But you cant be mad at mom for grabbing your tail. She didnt meant it. Please take care of mom Im worried about her. And no more nipping at her. I know you dont like you bath but just think how good you will feel after it and all the girls will be looking at you because you will look handsome! Try and be good for mom. Hugs and kisses to you.

Hi Gissi! It is always great to hear from you. I understand that you are worried about your mum, I am too! Sorry she mistook you for a hot water bottle, that must have been kind of scary getting grabbed in the night. Hopefully mum feels better soon! All my love to you and your mum, PurpleTeddyBear & Katie!

At least it was only a hot water bottle, and not a football, I don't know why you need flea treatment, doesn't she know that almost all fleas these days are cat ones, so you shouldn't need anything, unless of course, she's mistaken you for a moggie.

Hi Gissi, are you sure your allergy isn't to cats? I feel sorry for you being stuck with so many of them, that is my idea of my worst nightmare!! If you need any moral support, there are a number of canine members here, we could all come round and show those moggies who is the boss.

Gissi, you know mom means well. You may not appreciate it but mum has to do so many things and since she is in so much pain you must be careful with her. Act smart now boy and take care of her. She needs you so much-its painkillers gissi, they make mum all drowsy so do not be impatient with her.Take care boy.

Elf, you really gave me a good laugh today, and Lord knows I needed that! I can just see you sliding on your Mum's silk bedding and you goggle eyed with surprise, hahahaha!!!! Your poor Mummy needs tender loving care from you, so you be a good elf and cuddle nicely, okay? Maybe she'll ditch the bottle and hug you instead, especially now that you are rid of those pesky cat fleas...give your Mum a hug and kiss from Granny Sig and tell her I'll send her some Reiki energy so she'll sleep easier. It's cold here in Toronto too, and Granny Siggi's joints are creaky and sore! Love to you and Mum {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{gabs/Gissi}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}

Oh you poor little thing! I would have nipped her too if she pulled on my tail...well if I had a tail! I'm a mum to the two legged variety so I can tell you that mums do some pretty strange things when they're sleeping. Why, just the other night I almost shoved my little one out of bed beause I forgot he was there and thought his biggest brother's cat was pestering me! But us mums usually do silly things like baths and febreeze because we think it shows our little ones how much we love them.

Wow Mum has not done that with me yet I think I will sleep at the bottom of the bed it might be safer But I am back in my Bed as I love my Bed so I sleep there now

Oh, poor Gissi, I hope your little tail is not too sore. I do not really think you are going to be able to train your owner, any more than I am able to train my cats. They do not like to have flea treatments, either. I tell you what, if they get on me, and try to type on the computer, and make things hard for me to do things, I COMB them, with a flea comb, which they do not like. Have you tried combing Mum? I wish you luck, my doggy smelling friend. I like Febreeze.

Yep she has and I didn't like it either at all I love being brushed but I do not like that comb going through my long Hair

Maybe, Gissi, the new pills have your Mum so relaxed that it's hard for her to distinguish between your fuzziness and the fuzziness of the hot water bottle. I really can't knock her for her forgetfulness because I am very forgetful myself. Just try to hang in there with her because sometimes there is a period of adjustment when one starts a new medication.

Oh I know but this is the worse she has ever been I just do not get it I know she will be ok soon but goodness I wish she would have forgot about the Flea Treatment but no such luck I had to have it Hugs

Gissi, you and mum have some of the best adventures together. LOL You are not a hot water bottle but you are warm and cozy. She probably just wanted you close to her.
