Love this......

Bruiser came home yesterday with the help of PJ and Dave. They loaned me their big dog cage. I put in his favorite soft towel, a box with his bed in it, litter box and food. He seems happy until he gets hungry!
That's Harley in the foreground checking out The Bruise... He was starving this morning again and had eaten all the dry and wet food. I'll see about picking him up today. He needs to have drops put into his left eye where the doc thinks he was clawed. I won't tell you the cost of his week stay and shots/tests/surgery, but suffice to say I'm renaming him DryerDishwasher!

All I know. Nuff said. Will spend the day inside. Watched a STRANGE movie last night, in between checking on Jeannie's 9ers and Santisteven's Bears... SF 32 Bears 7. Whoa! Anyway the movie was with Meg Ryan and Tim Hutton in Serious Moonlight. Whooooo........ As my Mom would say, "Different, honey" ! My granddaughter Alex told me about it and she and I both agree the end was funny! Hopefully the movie Tammy suggested, Darling Companion, with Diane Keaton will arrive via UPS today. A doggie story. Tammy loved it.

Happy Tuesday. Nuff said. Ciao.
