Welcome Home Marvin! and the answer to the chew

Happy day before Thanksgiving everyone. Well, in the US, so to our friends not in the US, Happy Wednesday!
As for the guesses, we have a couple of y'all who were close, a couple were spot on. From the start to the nub of the bone was 7 minutes. Joe Stains guessed 7 minutes and he was right! From start to the end was 10 minutes. Dewy guessed 10 and Lorenza guessed 10. Lots of ya'll were close.
Mom still wants to know Pedigree's definition of "long lasting!"
We don't know how many of you knew Marvin, the hollow hound from Scotland before he stopped blogging last March. If you didn't you must go meet him now. Marvin and his human Jeannie live in Scotland. Marvin is an excellent poet and takes his handsome self all over the beautiful Scottish countryside.
When his folks go on vacation, they bring lovely pictures home for Marvin. They went to Spain last year and the pictures they brought home to Marvin were gorgeous.
What we are trying to say is if you don't already have Marvin in your list of friends to visit, you should do it now! .
Marvin is funny.
Marvin is handsome.
Marvin is a fantastic poet.

Isn't he a gorgeous hunk of dog?! Love his scottish accent too.
Why Aire Ruby's very first flight was to Marvin's house in Scotland for his birthday!
And let us not forget educational.
Marvin & Jeannie very often have educational posts.
Like the one in which they answered the age old question,

What does a Scotsman wear under his kilt?


(Bet you don't know)
Marvin provided evidence..

See?????? Where else would you find out such interesting and important facts?!?
An example of his poetry from comments yesterday:
"Especially and only for your Mum
My blog now has the picture of the Scotsman and his bum"

Really, you must go meet Marvin if you haven't already. And if you are like us and already know him, heee's baack!!
Welcome Back Marvin & Jeannie!!!!!
Hugs and Happy Thanksgiving
Sunny&Scooter &Jamie(the mom who better do some actual cooking. aacckk)

Go Ahead, Guess

Joe Stains said Freda would want us to continue to have 1,2 1,2 lots of laughs, so we are......

Firstly, Mom shaved that "beard". (MUCH better, don't you think?) Here I am in a real silk scarf from Paris that was given to Mom by a male nurse friend several years ago. She has never worn it, bet he didn't know a Poodle would wear it! (Or maybe he did-my mom is known as the K9 Nut. hah)

Since I cannot have rawhides, Mom is always looking for something I can chew on that might last a while.

This "Pedigree Super Chew" is for dogs weighing 50 to 120 pounds. (At my last vet visit I was about 56-58 pounds) AND. it states it is "a long lasting chew".

(Mom says don't look at my nails. I give her a hard time about them and she will soon"hogtie" me to get them done..She also says I am not finished being groomed. So I guess I will be one of these days when she gets done playing around. Would somebody get her a life please?)

After the "let's show off how well Sunny minds, give her the leave it command and make her look at it without touching it" show we have to go through,

I am at last allowed to begin...

Would anyone like to guess the amount of time elapsed from the start to this???

Go ahead, guess. There are not any prizes for this, maybe next time.

I did finish it all, but Mom had to answer the phone, and couldn't take pictures of the end. She does know how long it took to finish it off though. So guess how long it took to get to the last pic. I'll tell you after the guessing how long it took to get to this state and how long it took to polish it off from start to finish.

Here is what Scooter did most of the weekend. Most of the time all you could see was the throw covering him up. Mom has quite a few of those pics. We should play "where's Scooter" like they used to play "where's Waldo" with those pictures. hah

(BTW, I was sneezing in that last pic of me with all my big teeth showing in the post before last)

RIP Dear Freda

Dear, sweet Freda, Delta Bunny has gone to the bridge. We loved reading her blog (hers was one of our very favorites and one of the first we began to read way before we ever had our own blog.)

We know her people are heartbroken. She brought 1,2 1,2 , thousands of smiles to us.
Have fun at the bridge dear Freda , where you are once again young and healthy.
Very Sad Hugs,

What do YOU think???

You would think this is the Scooter blog. I am getting a bit miffed about it. While I am mature and all that I do have feelings. Hear that Mom?!

Ok. Now that's off my chest. I have something else bugging me. Mom has been "playing" with my hair. She does that sometimes. (Shows just what an exciting life she leads, don't you think????)

She says I look like somebody called Don King with my big hair...
She also jumped in and told Stan of Gooberstan I'd be in the beard contest that goes til January.
Personally, I think I look ridiculous and so does Mom. She thinks we should go ahead and cut this "beard" off. Especially since she wants to take some Christmas photos.(Yep. You read right. Not even CLOSE to having any cards ready. OMDOG!)
These last 2 pics tell you how I am feeling about all this playing with my hair and this beard thing.....
please,please, knock it off, Mom. please
What do y'all think. Shave the beard, right? And tell Mom to stop playing with my hair!!!!!

Mom made it to the store! So we won't starve after all. Thanks for the offers of sharing your foodables!! (hmmm-mom got a picture of the moon falling out of the sky.....:)

Mom said our human cousin-our sis's daughter-is coming to spend the weekend with us!!(Mom thought about this and says it is our niece she thinks. Is that right?) We LOVE, LOVE her and haven't seen her for the longest time. I think over a month. So Mom says since we will be playing with our little girl, we probably will take this weekend away from the puter and relax and have FUN!!! Mom is going to try to start using her new camera more. So maybe she'll actually learn how to use it!!
Mom also said we have a meme to do from our kitty friends the Meezers and we'll do that after the weeknd.
Deetzy's Mom is having surgery today, so keep your paws crossed for her. We know she will be getting better the soonest!
Y'all have a great weekend!

Send food.....

See this?? I bet you are wondering what on earth is going on. OUR Mom actually cooking. And for US! How sweet you say.

Though the eggs (7 of them) with vegetable soup stirred in was very tasty, the bag tells the story. It is EMPTY!!!

Brother, Mom's thinker isn't working so well. We could starve. She SAYS she has to get to the store today or none of us will eat. Sheesh...
pee ess Thanks for getting Scooter back in time Asta!!

Better get your tail home Scooter...

Asta assures me she will have Scooter home tomorrow from the big party. I still think Lacie's mumsie knows......

We hope that we can have a somewhat interesting, or at least regular, blog for y'all to look at soon. Life sure can get crazy-Mom says anyhow.

pee ess HU? What Mom??? NO. I have been doing what I do all the time. See? Just watching for those squirrels. Why, no, I have not been gone. I really do NOT know what yo are talking about. You were so tired that night, you let me out and forgot to bring me back in til the next day... Let me get you a nice soothing bath drawn. You are imagining things..

HUH? Well, of course Scooter is here. He's in the igloo taking a nap. C'mon, I'll use bubble bath and everything. (whew)

Thank you to:
My 2 favorite veterans. L. Staff SGT James David, USMC (my son) currently overseas

R. L/Col James A. Quillin, USAF (my Dad) RIP My Hero

Sorry about the quality of this photo. (Before 13:45 my time-1:45 pm, I had a pic of Daddy and James from the old camera. DUH. I tried and tried with the new one and tho it is not great you can see my son and Dad's face. Made me cry....)

Monday, November 10, 2008


I haven't gotten to talk to y'all in the longest time. (ahem-Sunny here-but I bet you knew that from proper spelling and grammer....) Mom wanted to talk about hospitals, nurses and staying with loved ones in the hospital.
Mom has worked just about every floor in the hospital.(Not here) ED-better known as ER and ICU were specialties but she also "floated" when needed. (The one she could not take was NICU or OB. She says the highest of highs and lowest of lows are there. She tips her hat to those that can take it. Just an aside and not germaine to this post at all...)
Ok, bear with me-Mom thinks this is really IMPORTANT for folks to know. The point of my filling you in on the above is ,that while Mom loved her job and most do, there are two reasons she stays with a hospitalized loved one. One is nurses, except in very few instances, are overburdened. To cut costs, fewer RNs are on the floor. (I am in no way knocking LPNs) It is just that by most state laws, LPNs are not allowed to do certain things-ie IV meds, etc. Sooo-the one or maybe two RNs on the floor are resposible for more than the patients assigned directly to them for total care. They are ultimately responsible for all the patients their LPNs are assigned to. This makes for not only burn out, but it can be near impossible to get to your patient in a timely manner no matter how hard you try. Some hospitals have gone to different sorts of "techs". Don't get Mom started on that. She loved her good NAs(nurse's aides) that helped. She disagrees with giving more and more over to techs. MED techs (dispense medicine and are becoming abundant) are a sore spot. Oh, and guess where the buck stops again? Yep, the RN. All to save money.
The second is that unfortunately, like any other profession, there are lousy nurses. Some are lousy because they never really had what it takes to be a nurse. Some because of burnout have just given up except on what they absolutely must do to stay employed. (It doesn't help they don't get paid enough. Ask just about any nurse this. Do you have mandatory overtime? If you do not, and even if you do, do you request overtime, volunteer when someone is needed to help your income? She doesn't have national statistics, but where she has worked the answer to both is YES in the majority. They do have a law that you cannot work 2 12's back to back and Mom has seen that broken in one of the hospitals. You want someone that has been up for over 24 hrs?? And they do not get naps like interns. They shut their eyes and they are fired.)
She always says folks don't realize how well RNs are trained. They used to be the doc's handmaidens. Now, that is not the case. More than one doc used to talk to Mom about cases. After all, she spent 12 hours with them. But of course, some did not. The newer docs are better about this.
Good grief, I have heard Mom talk about this so many times she has got me on her soapbox. So she stays to advocate and make sure everything gets done right. She is not frequently very popular!! LOL LOL
By the way, you thought I was longwinded on the above subject, you should see how long MOM can go on....Sorry, (if you read this far), for boring you. I have been listening to Mom go on and on about it lately!
pee ess Mom said to say that there are LPNs out there who have been nurses a long time and she would trust more than some of the RN's she has seen. Whew. I nearly missed that!

Jet lagged

Scooter & I are home from England. I can't believe what a huge party we had. And so very much fun!!

We want to thank Asta, Lacie and Eric for having such a fantastic party and for all the great photography!! Thank you guys!!! And thank you for our goodie bag!!
Also thanks to Ms Ruby of Aire Ruby. What a luxurious plane ride. To quote her, WOOT!!

Neither one of us has ever really been to an all dog(and kitty and hammy) party. I learned alot during the party. One thing was learning that sipping on a smoothie slowly gives one a pleasant buzz!!! And that I need to work on my flirting skills. I think I learned quite a bit from various girls there! I will be working on my image in the upcoming weeks. One can be a hard working girl AND have fun and enjoy the fellas!, after all!!

Scooter and I both have jet lag at this point. Later all!! I'll be having pleasant dreams about our wonderful weekend.

The best party in the history of the world!!

Sunny and Scooter are having the best time ever!!! You can see it in this picture Asta took over in England. I do wonder if they will ultimately be asked to leave London, as in getting kicked out!! These DWB dogs and their kitty and hammie friends are having a crazy good time!!!

Be sure to look at all the pictures at Asta's blog, Lacie's blog and Eric's blog.

(I tried to make the links and for some reason I can't today. But all 3 are on our friend's list)

photo by Asta

Asta, Lacie and Eric's mom's have done an incredible job! Thanks you guys!! And, please don't drink anything while looking and reading about this party. You'll have it come out of your nose from laughing!!

Hope everyone had a happy "howl"oween.


Jamie (still chuckling)
