A Bit of a Normal Day

Hi friends, Tasha here. First of all let me thank all of you for all the well wishes that have been sent my way. You all make me feel so special. (And momma and dad really appreciate it too.). Today Dad stayed home with Eva and me and payed us lots of attention. I was even feeling well enough to do one of my favorite things:I LOVE GRAZING!!
Then I surprised Dad big time! I wanted to play with this:I'VE GOT MY STICK!!
I didn't play with it for very long, but it was still very fun. After that I had to supervise Dad with the picking up of sticks in the back yard. We have a big willow tree and it leaves a very big mess over the winter.
Good job, Dad, but it took you long enough.

Not too long after we got done in the back yard, Eva and I had to bark at a guy in a big brown truck that walked up to our house with this box.
Aren't those cute paw prints?!?! And that puppy with a bone is just way cool! We are so honored that MayaMarie's mom picked us to be official taste testers for her home made puppy treats! Its a tough job, but some pup has to do it!!
So many choices! Let's see. We have (left to right) Three Cheese Biscuits, Pumpkin Oat Biscuits, and Blueberry Banana Biscuits. All these treats are made with natural ingredients and have no preservatives. Eva and I don't care about all that technical stuff, all we know is that all of them are VERY TASTY!!
Momma tried to get Eva to sniff each treat and then pick her favorite. That didn't work out too well. Right after Dad took this picture, she grabbed another one! I don't think she is a very selective tester.

Momma told me to sniff each one, then wait. As you can see, I did what I was told, as hard as it was. The first one I choose was the Banana Blueberry. But I did get to eat all three and they were all DELICIOUS! Big shout outs to MayaMarie's Mom for sending us such wonderful treats!

What a great day! Dad home with us all day, spending lots of time outside, and special delivery treats! What more could a pup want?
Belly Rubs, Tasha.
P.S. I finally pooed today. Dad was very happy about that and called Momma at work to tell her about it. Humans are SOOO strange.

I'm glad you are feeling good Tasha! Isn't MayaMarie's mom the best!!! We wanted to be part of the taste test too, but because of all the stupid allergies here we couldn't! So, it is fun to hear about all the pups out there tasting, and loving, the treats!!

Tasha! how wonderful you feeling a bit better. Sounds like a pawsome day! Lucky you getting to graze cos our mommy won't let us lately sumtin about insectacide has to wear off it's a real bummer. But to end the day with a package full of homemade goodies WOW

Tasha, so glad that you are feeling better now! Oh yes, hoomans sure are strange when it comes to our poop.

Those are some yummy biscuits you have there.

Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

Getting a big box of goodies is one way to feel better! They look delicious.

And congrats on the pooing...I'll never understand why humans get excited about this stuff either. As long as they keep the treats coming!

Yummy treats like that will make you feel better in no time! What a great surprise!

Hey Tasha! Glad to hear you're feeling a bit better and that the meds are kicking in! It's nice that you supervised your dad picking up sticks - you didn't over-do, did you? Whew, watching bipeds can be SO exhausting!
We got a job being taste-testers, too! Isn't Maya Marie's mom the BEST?!?!?
Play bows,
PS: My mom loves your feety-feet!

Hi Tasha!

I'm very glad you're feeling better! Enjoy your treats...


p.s. I have lots of dogwood sticks to pick up--want to visit Chicago and supervise me?

Hi Tasha (and Eva because I don't want you to feel left out)

I'm so pleased you're feeling better. Supervising your dad picking up those sticks sounds exhausting - I have to supervise mum hanging out the washing or she does it wrong so I know how hard you are working.

Wish I had cookie testing to do :(

Hi Tasha!

I'm so glad you're feeling good today! I see you love to graze too, eh? The grass at this time of year is delicious!

Man, lucky you! Those treats look so good! I'm drooling on the keyboard again... That was very nice of MayaMarie to send all those treats to you and Eva to taste test... Mmmm, yum.

Hi, Tasha!
It makes me so happy to know that you are feeling better!
I am drooling here looking at your pictures where you are tasting those treats MayaMarie sent to you!
I am sure they were delicious!
Paws crossed for you!
