Yep, folks we finks our mom brought home the wrong man!!!  Could her have been so tired that hers went into the wrong hospital room and grabbed up the first man that was crabby to her, and assumed it was our dad...???

We could give you a long list of everyfing that went wrong this weekend but it pains us to replay it in our minds, just know that when mom left for work, I fink hers was RUNNING out the door.  All I can say is the dad that we used to know threatened to give us away if we didn't straighten up.  You can imagine the conversation our parents had wif that comment. 

Anyways today is dad's first day home wif just us and hims.  We may have to use some tough love on hims before mom gets home.

Grandma has another round of chemo on Wed. and then back Thursday for her infusion shot.  It is the shot that makes her the sickest.  She will most likely have chemo until December and then we will see.  She is so brave.

Here are some happy new pictures of Macey. Her mom got a new camera and is showing off.  (yes, we are STILL waiting on the compression wraps to be has been 7 months now and folks this is with really good insurance)

Here is one mom took of baby bean on Friday night, as you can tell our big sister is the true photographer.

Sometimes you just gotta laugh when you really wanna cry.

Stella Rose, and Momma


  1. Wow, your big sister takes some beautiful photographs but of course how could they turn out anything but beautiful?!?! We are so sorry that your weekend was a disaster. This caretaking business is tough! Does your dad know about the enema? Tell your mom to enjoy her time away from these hard responsibilities (even if it is work) and to not feel guilty!!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  2. I'm so sorry that so much things went wrong last weekend. I hope so much that your week will be better than that black weekend. I send a lot of POTP to your daddy, your mom, macey and your grandma, the shots are horrible, my mommas bff said if something tops the after- and sideeffects of chemo, than that shots.
    I was glad to see your baby bean... we all need a laugh at the end, right? That was a good feeling just to laugh with her :o)

  3. those are some wonderful photos - it is so not right poor Macey has to wait for the stockings - they are awful to wear but they do help. Mom came across some in a catalog the other day that are available in petite sizes and wondered if they would fit her - now she has to hunt to find the catalog again - she will send you the web addy when she finds it.

  4. You will haf to be patient wiv Dad, remember being shut up wiv 951 Push-T-Cats for weeks must haf been a bit traumatic fur him, gif him time to readjust to your sweet puggie ways!
    Wow, isn't Macey gorgeous! Such a pretty young lady and amazing photos, well done big Sis, pawsome work there.

  5. Baby Bean is oozing with cuteness. I busted out laughing cause I can see she is ate up with orneriness. Little Macey has gotten bigger!

    Aroo to you,

  6. We are sorry your Mom brought home the crabby Dad - we hope things will begin to get better. Macey is just a beautiful child - so sweet.
    And that baby bean! So cute. We are sending prayers for them and Grandma too so she can be strong when she gets her next treatment!

  7. After being away from Blogville, I've been doing a lot of catching up on everyone's blogs...I am so sorry to hear of all that's been happening in your world lately. Was glad to be able to read that your Dad has come home, that is a very good sign. Your grandma is such a very brave, strong woman! I can very much see where your mother gets all her amazing strength from. Your Macey is such a pretty young lady, and your big sister takes some very beautiful photos of her!

    Sending lots of hugs and good thoughts your way.

  8. Stella,
    Your papa is gonna be crabby cuz he hurts. Not too different from us pups when we hurt - we lash out with teeth bared and we bark for no reason. Hopefully as he starts to heal the crabbiness will fall away. Lucky for him he has you 3 and your Mommy - although it may not seem like he appreciates you much these days.
    Oh but seeing the smiling faces of the grandkids is enough to brighten up anyone's day.
    Love Noodles

  9. I'm so glad your daddy is home. Give him lots of pug kisses! Pug kisses are magical!

    We are so very sorry to read that the weekend was R O U G H!
    Your sweet mom is trying so very hard. She is not a medical professional...the only training she has is on the job but WE KNOW she is doing her very best. It might be time to have a serious heart 2 heart with the Dad about catching more flies with honey than vinegar...yada yada yada. It is that or the enema!

    Your mom is is BEST ally we know he feels poorly but being crabby doesn't make him feel any better.
    Macey is such a good poser and so beautiful. My word 7 months to approve the compression it because of her age..if so still no excuse. Your baby bean is a real little princess.

    Sending hugs madi and mom

  11. Those are some beacutiful smiles you shared with us!!
    We love smiles..
    I am sorry Cranky Pants has come to live in your home.

    I can just see you mom running out the door to work!!

  12. We're guessing your dad is bored and in pain to be so grumpy. We do hope he starts feeling less pain soon! And you guys had better be good so you can get your treat privileges back. We're you jumping on your dad?

    We hope you will stop by and enter the giveaway for the breakaway collar. It ends tonight. (We deleted the http so Google won't thiink our link in a comment is s--m.

  13. We hope your day with Dad went well - Mom says she knows all about taking care of "sick" men!!! Macey looks wonderful and we have to smile at that cute little Baby Bean:) Seven months and still waiting????? That is incredibly ridiculous. Hope something happens soon.

  16. Baby Bean is growing like a beanstalk with the sweetest eyes. Oh when peeps don't feel well they get so grumpy. Sorry we missed hugs day. You can't wrap love in a box, but you can wrap a person in a hug. Hugs from us.
    Thanks for being a friend

  17. Tell your momma we have a spare room if she wants to come here to get away!!!!! Love the photos...

  18. We are sorry the weekend was rough for you all, and hope as your dad feels better, it will get easier. Lady and Man have a touch of the flu and Lady wanted to get all whiney and stuff, and then she remembered what your family and some of our other blog pals are going through and she sucked it right up (ok, she was whiney in her head but we didn't have to hear it). Those pictures are amazing. You are lucky to have such sweet gals in your life.

  19. It's never easy for either the patient or the care givers. We hope your daddy gets better soon so he will be feeling more like the dad you know and love.

  20. Glad your daddy is home, even if he is a cranky pants. Mum says that whenever she feels bad, I (and the kitties) make her feel better.

  21. Macey's pictures are BEYOND amazing, her mom is a true artist! She looks so good! We are praying for Grandma. We are praying for Dad to see the light :-)

  22. Oh Macey's sweet face makes me SMILE! She sure is a cutie patoooootie!! I sure hopes she gets her hose soon, they will make her leggies feel soooo much betters!
    I knows your Pops doesn't mean to be grumpy, butts pain does that to the peeps. Be patient, and don't take it personally. He will gets better and not be so grumpy. I hopes your week gets better, I have my paws crossed reallllll tight!!!!
    Your Gma is a Superhero! You send her my loves and slobbery kisses ... that always makes Ma squeal with delight ☺
    Ruby ♥

  23. We'll keep purring for all of you. We think the littlest bean has the best idea - just keep smilin!
    Pee Ess - Macey looks so pretty and grown up in her pics!

  24. Ghostwriter says Grumpy Hour is 7PM, and you have to think up a good joke. Her favorite joke is this: If your nose runs and your feet smell, then you're built upside-side down! She says after working with grumpy people for 34 years, laughter is still the best medicine! The second best medicine is patience. It might seem like it will take forever to get back to normal; but sooner or later things WILL be better.

  25. Hope you pugs are being good and helping take care of Dad while Mom's at work! (Is he home alone with just the pups during the day?) The pics of Macey are fantastic! She's such a pretty girl and her mom is a fabulous photographer!

  26. OMD..What wonderful Macy Pictures!!! We agree with the last line in your post.....Keep laughing!!
    Smiley Hugs!

  27. Oh mi gosh! That baby bean is just too precious! and Macey, so beautiful! As for dad, I guess when you are recovering from such a serious injury, the pain just makes you crabby. Got prayers coming for your grandma, hope all goes well with the chemo.

    Sending hugs and prayers from NJ, Patty

  28. Hmm, maybe you can do a DNA test to make sure that crabby guy is really your daddy! I heard humans can DNA test dog poop now, so there's an easy way to do it!

  29. I am so sorry that your dad is grumpy, but remember that it is very hard not to be able to everything that you used to take for granted. He loves you and would never give y'all away. Hang in there. ♥

  30. Tell your Daddy to straighten up and be glad you all love him! Macey is getting so big :) the baby bean is so cute! Hugs, purrs and licks for your Mama!
