You may call it Thanksgiving, but in our house, it’s Bubba Day.  There is a toss up as to Bubba’s favorite activity.  It’s either eating or sleeping, it’s hard to tell which, so this is a perfect day for him.

He is in fact a Jack Russell, but I know that somewhere in him there has to be a recessive hound gene.  His sister Allie is a true Jack Russell.  She can jump in place, she plays with her toy’s and us all the time, and her tail and tongue are always wagging.  Bubba lays on the couch and watches her.

Bubba is laying on the couch right now, on his back with all four legs straight out.  His nose twitches every now and then so I know he is alive and smelling the food.  He’ll time it just right and not wake up until the food is ready. 

Yeah, it might be Thanksgiving everywhere else in America today, but at our house, it is most definitely Bubba’s Day.  Have a good one boy.

Vacation Blues November 7, 2008

travelmedicinesuitcaseWhile me and my husband had a great time on vacation, I can’t say the same for Bubba and Allie.  They didn’t actually get to go on vacation with us, but they hated us going.

We go through this each time we go on vacation.  We start telling them a few days in advance that we will gone for a while, but they get to stay home with Monique.  Monique is our 24 year old daughter. 

By the day we leave, with suitcases packed, Allie is already sulking.  Bubba is better but you can still tell he is kind of pissed off. 

It’s not like Monique won’t take excellent care of them because she does, even to the point of sleeping on the couch with them instead of in her own bed.  It’s not even that they love us that much.  Which they do, but above anything, Bubba and Allie are dogs of habit and routine and they don’t like that routine upset.

When we got home everyone was happy to see us.  And after a few hours of them letting us know that they weren’t happy with us Bubba and Allie have settled back down into their happy routines.
