Fezzik Friday - 25 Weeks...

Hi, Everyone! It's me again. It took nearly TEN weeks, but I finally did it! I won over Miss Kes. I'm exceedingly proud of myself. I was starting to think I smelled funny or something. Every time I'd walk into a room and try to be friendly with her, she'd get up and leave the room.

When she got sick, I was a really good dog and let her know that I was concerned about her. I think that was our turning point. After her stitches came out, she started to pay a little more attention to me.

Two nights ago, she let me sleep with her. It was my first night out of the kennel all night, too. Mom was really happy with me. I just slept on this blanket next to Mom's side of the bed and made little woofy noises every now and then, so she knew I was still there (and not roaming around the house getting into trouble).
Yesterday, Kes and I even had a wrestling match. Who knew that horsing around with a Labrador could be so much darn fun? We were at it so long that we both took a nap when we were finished playing. This could be habit forming.
I found out something else I like doing this week, too. Dad was working in the yard, trimming up some of the grass. When he was finished he got out this thing. It's makes a lot of noise and blows air out the pointy end. If I stand right in front of it, my fur blows and I look like a show dog! We even played a little game. I'd stand in front of it for a little while, and then I run around and come back for more. I'm really starting to like this place. Mom and Dad (and now, Kes) really are my family now. I guess I'm just their kinda guy.
Mom asked if I'd share just a little of my Friday post space to show you the project that she finished yesterday. I watched as she worked on this, and I'd like to tell you - she really can make cool things with old bedspreads!
This is the back of it. She says it's going to be a Christmas present for a special little girl. I think that little girl is going to like it, don't you?

One last thing...
Today is Mom's Birthday!
I made her a present.
It's in the yard.
(Sorry. Kes told me to write that.)
Happy Birthday, Mom.
Fezzik (and Kes)

Happy Birthday!
So glad Kes finally warmed up to the puppy. He is getting cuter all the time. Amazing how a puppy can pep up an older dog, too.

I love old candlewick bedspreads, but I never thought of making garments with them, what a fab idea!

Carol said...

Hi Fez
Tell your mommy to have a happy day for me, please.

I am so glad that you have made a doggy friend finally. Mom and dads are great, but you have to feel like you are part of the pack, huh.

Yep, your mom is sure creative and your dad, well, he sure came up with a cool game, didn't he.

Now go give your mom a big slurpy birthday kiss, right after you get that nice drink of water, K?

Claudia said...

Happy Birthday, Donna! Have a wonderful day. Fezzik and Kes - give Mom a kiss and lots of love!

Fezzik, I knew it was just a matter of time until Kes came round. Glad you two are pals now!

It is so sweet to see what great friends you and Kes have become Fez. There is nothing that can replace a good bosom buddy...

Happy Happy Birthday!!

And the pups look so adorable together, glad they are finally friends :) Looks like lots of fun times ahead.


Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Yes it is your mom's birthday today. I actually remembered it and wanted to come by and say Happy Birthday to her.
Tell your mom her friend Maggie is loosing her mind because when I first started reading this funny post I thought she was writing it and I could not understand why Kes was not having anything to do with her and then when she said Kes let her sleep with her for the first time I thought why would Donna sleep with Kes Shouldn't it be the other way around.
Oh well it took be a while but I figured it out. Darn it's hard being old. Of course that is not what your mom is just because she has a birthday today. lol'
I truly love your mom and hope it is the best Birthday ...oh how could I forget to tell you this. today is My oldest son Chad's birthday too. I can see now how these two were born on the same day their both so kind and generous.
What did you leave in the yard for your mom?

Createology said...

Happy Official Birthday today to you Miss Donna. Fez you are a fine young man dog and I am so glad you are loving your new family. You do know how fortunate you are to be part of this loving family! Kes you are such a good girl to allow Fez to fit into your family. Have a wonderful day doing your favorite things Donna.
P.S. The chenille top is fabulous.

Deb said...

Happy Birthday Donna! I do hope that you got some other presents than were left for you in the yard! :o)

I had to laugh at the leaf blower thing. My dog loves if I blow him with the hair dryer and will bark until I do. Funny what our little pets like.

Again, have a wonderful Birthday!!!

Brenda Kula said...

Your mom is one smart lady! And I'm glad you feel like family. Sometimes it takes the other pets awhile to come around.

Faerie Moon Creations said...

Happy birthday to you!!!!! Hope all your dreams come true today. By the way, those photos of Kes and Fezzik are too adorable. How lovely that they are now FRIENDS! How could anyone not adore that little cutie. :) That dress you made is so cute and sweet - I'm sure it will be a well loved addition to a little girl's wardrobe. Enjoy your day! Theresa
