Hello There!

Friday afternoon, Mr. Taleteller and I were both off work.  It turned out to be a good thing.  To help his sister out, Mr. Taleteller offered to take our nephew for the afternoon and then return him when we arrived for the birthday party his family was having for her husband. 

When Mr. Taleteller arrived home with the baby, the dogs were very excited, especially Bunny.  She couldn't get enough of the baby and he couldn't get enough of her.  They had this amusing game going between the two of them.  The baby would reach out to touch her nose and she would stick her nose into his hand, letting him pet her, but then she would insist on moving her nose up to his face, blowing little breaths against his cheek.  He couldn't seem to decide if he liked it or not, but he did keep coming back for more and so did she.  Bunny also thought he had great toys and offered to keep getting more out for him!

She was quite put out that we left and took the baby, leaving her behind.  Normally, I wouldn't mind taking her over with us and letting her play with their dog, Suzie, but we thought there might be more people than usual there and so we told her she'd have to sit this one out.

I'd like to mention that we may not be able to post as much as usual this week, or post as many replies.  We will try and we will certainly be reading, but life will be a little hectic for us this week.  Mr. Taleteller's grandmother passed away quietly in her sleep early Friday morning a few months past her ninetyeth birthday.  We will have relatives returning from Japan for the service and be trying to help out with family things.  So, please don't be offended if our visits or posts seem infrequent.  I will have several posts that will go up this week as usual, but I can't promise we'll have one every day.

  6. Nephews are wonderful, aren't they? Our dogs loved them as toddlers and love them again now (ages 5 & 7). There was a brief phase in the middle when the nephews were a little too rough on the dogs. But, that phase seems to have passed.

    I'm sorry to hear of the loss in your family. Don't worry about blogging - let it go when you need to.

  8. Well Bunny sure seems to be a wonderful babysitter! She seems so calm and gentle. Little kiddos get us so excited.Hootie always wants to jump on them and lick their mushy faces.That usually knocks 'em down so we don't get to visit with kids much.
