Here I am snoozing on the carpet. This is another picture Mom took while she was trying to get a good one for the calendar. Mom did get one that she thought was good and sent it in. I may have left the impression that I don't play with Mom, but I do, just not all the time when she expects me to. We had a really good play session just a few minutes ago and we also had a good one just after the last time she posted. I am getting just a little bummed out, because the weather is getting too cold for open windows. Mom closed the windows before she went to work today because there was a cold wind blowing. I didn't have fresh air all the time she was gone.
Karen Jo: Sorry about that, Herman, but I don't want you getting too cold while I am gone. I opened the windows again when I got home, to air the house out a bit. I am going to have to close them again soon. Next day off I am going to have to clean the filter and put the heat back on, just in case. Oh, joy! Taking out the filter and cleaning it are no problem at all. Getting the filter back in is a real pain.
I found a new way to get attention. Mom likes to watch TV in bed just before she goes to sleep. I found out that if I jump up on the bed and put my head right in front of hers, so she can't see the TV, I get lots of petting.
Karen Jo: It's fun for both of us, and it gets you to lay your head down, so I can see again. I can be tricky, too.
You will never believe this, but I am letting Mom give me my really yucky medicine by just sticking it in my mouth. I never thought I would do that.
Karen Jo: I thought I would try it. I was finding it so hard to get all the medicine sucked up into the syringe that I was afraid you weren't getting enough of it. It's all over now for another month. You were really good about taking it tonight. You spit it out twice, but you didn't fight me about getting it in and you finally swallowed it. I hope you are as good about taking it next month. It will make things so much easier and I will be sure that you are getting your full dose.
