Friday Funny with Timber and Finally That Update!!!

 Timber has found a new way to use his bed while he takes a nap:)

Pay no attention to the Momster, readers. Truth be told, SHE washed our bed blankets and I don't like the way they smell - Timber.

We promised an update a couple of days ago, and we didn't get to it.  Mom's schedule has been a bit out of whack for a couple of weeks now.  The grands are back in school, so she is back on chauffeur duty.  Trying to fit in Misty's walks and Dad's multiple eye drops makes for a full day - not to mention that with the nicer weather Timber and Lightning are also getting multiple walks too.  We do try to keep Mom in good shape:)

Misty saw her surgeon two weeks ago, and all was well.    Her latest x-rays look great.  It has now been 12 weeks since her first knee was fixed and six weeks for the second one.  The surgeon will see her one more time in two weeks. At that point we expect him to give her a full go-ahead signal.  Then Mom will start to let her do a few stairs at a time, and she will get some short periods of off-leash time in the backyard by herself (with Mom supervising:). Then in a while longer she may get to join Timber in the yard again for short play times.  We are so happy with her progress.

Timber was sick off and on for the past two weeks. He is doing well now.  He managed to get one of the decorative balls that sit in a bowl on our sofa table.  We think it got knocked off without Mom noticing.  He would never jump up and get it himself.  It was a styrofoam ball covered with small leaves.  Based on the number of leaves Mom found on the carpet, we are pretty sure he only ate a few of them.  But it was enough to cause some vomiting and loss of appetite.   Thankfully there was no blockage.  He got some meds for his tummy and was doing better.  But a few days later he stopped eating again.  He has a sensitive tummy under normal circumstances.  So a little more meds and now all is well.

The biggest worry has been the oldest granddaughter. She was driving home from school two weeks ago day and was involved in a bad accident. She had a green light at an intersection that had a flashing yellow turn signal.  She was headed straight (never had to stop for a red light) when a girl coming from the opposite direction never stopped or slowed at the yellow flashing light that SHE had and turned in from of K, hitting her almost head-on.  K was driving a big Jeep Rubicon while the other driver was driving a Jeep Wrangler.  The Wrangler spun K's Rubicon for two full rotations.  Thankfully K is fine although she did have a mild concussion, some severe bruising on her hip and shoulder from the seat belt and airbags, and a deep bone bruise on her shin from hitting the steering column when she tried to brake.  K's phone had been broken for a couple of days so she had no phone with her. A very nice man/father stopped and helped her call her parents.  She was so upset.  But she knows now that this was not her fault. The police issued a citation for failure to yield to the other driver.  The weird thing is that Mom had just dropped the twins (K's brother and sister) at their home after school and drove right by the accident.  Her mind didn't want to believe it could be K's vehicle, but she turned around to check. She was pretty upset too when she saw K standing there.  Mom got to K minutes before her father arrived.  As K, Mom, and the man who was helping were talking, the other driver was calling to them asking if they thought it would be OK if she went back to her vehicle to get her mask because she had Covid-19!!!  We are so glad she kept her distance, but she probably should have been at home.  The Rubicon was declared a total.  It was six years old and had been K's Dad's vehicle until she started driving.  Her mother and father figured its sturdiness would keep her safe. The vehicle being unfixable was not what her family was planning on, but K's new wheels came home yesterday after all the red tape of getting the money from the insurance company for the totalled Jeep.  Now they have to deal with the additional cost of the new vehicle.  Long story, but in the end we are all thankful that K is just fine. And the other driver is too - no injuries for her.

So now you have the update and we suppose that helps explain our MIA status. We hope to do a better job of posting.  

Have a great weekend.

Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

Pee Ess - you can see that bowl of ornaments on the front end of the table in the last photo:)


  1. Hello my WooFul gorgeous and handsome woos.
    Timber you are too funny..just don't like that fresh scent it appears. Just when you get it right Mom gets the fall cleaning bug.
    Thank goodness your tummy is better and Misty you continue to be Princess of the house and such a great patient and healer!! Lightning you have your paws full with the whippersnappers right.

    Kathie I'm so sorry about K's accident what a scary situation...Bless her heart. I know the strains and bumps and bruises are slow to heal. Not to mention I expect she has replays of the accident in her head. Give her gentle hugs and my very best wishes...

  2. PS I have to wonder if the parents of the gal who ran into K knew she was out and about spreading germs. Geez she is a prime example of why the C19 won't go away....

  3. Oh dear, what a trauma for K and all the family. But thank goodness she wasn't badly injured.
    Thank you for the Misty update. Such good news. How she must be longing to regain her freedom and run around with the other pups. If only we could tell our dogs "it won't be long now"!
    Cheers, Gail.

  4. We are relieved that K is recovering from the accident, and that Misty and Timber are, as well.

  5. Hari OM
    OMD - that's been quite the eventful time for you all!!! so glad the news is good - in the end; better it had not happened, of course, but glad things are generally on the up. As if the year wasn't trying enough, eh? Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  6. Great news on Misty and Timber. Yikes on the accident. I'm glad everyone is okay.

    Thanks for the update.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. Scritches to the pups. ♥

  7. Thank goodness that K is okay! We are just thrilled for you, Misty. You're almost there! Those balls do look tasty, Timber, and we are happy to hear that you are on the mend!

  8. I am glad that K wasn't badly hurt. The other girl should surely have been self isolating though.
    That is good news about Misty and I hope she can soon enjoy the garden again. I am glad Timber is okay too.

  9. Wow! You sure have a lot of stuff going on! We're very glad your grand daughter is OK after that accident, although she'll probably have a lot of aches and pains for a while. Hooray that Misty is getting steadily better! We're sure Timber will be all right.

    Well, things can only get better now! Sending lots of hugs and POTP.

  10. We're glad to hear Misty is doing so well and that Timber is on the mend again. That was quite a scare for K but we're glad to hear she is okay. We are keeping our paws crossed for Misty and for K.

  11. I'm sure glad for a good report you those sweet pups. Dang though, how scary that accident had to be for K., and for you all. We're sure glad she is okay, it's a scary world out there.

  12. When will a mom realize when things smell like a dog they smell perfect. Misty, continue improving rock star. Timber, we hope you are back to normal. We pray for your grand daughter. She must be very shaken up.

  13. So sorry about the wreck! Our main Boulevard has gotten so bad I refuse to drive on it! I take the mountain road people are crazy and they don’t pay attention! Glad to hear about Misty

  14. That's such good news about Misty, but the careless driver with COVID-19 is a completely different matter. I'm so glad K wasn't seriously hurt.

  15. Poor K. That is terrible and we are glad to hear she is ok. In our area, the other driver would be fined $5000 a day for violating quarantine. If you test positive, or are waiting for results you can't be out here (except to get medical attention).

    I hope everyone continues to feel better and this week is less eventful.

  16. OH. MY. GOSH!!!
    that other driver could have killed K.
    I live in a university town. it seems they text and talk and do everything but DRIVE responsibly.
    I know it could happen at any age really. but for some reason they feel invincible. the rest of us have to watch out for them. and she even had Covid! like you said she should have been home!
    little Timber Puppy! me thinks you might have reached up and made that ball escape. it looked so tasty! LOL.
    hope all will be well with your family now Mom. both furry and human! xoxo
    (and YOU get some REST dear heart!)

  17. Holy cow! No wonder you've been preoccupied. So sorry about K's accident. Can't believe somebody would be out driving around with COVID!! What the dog?! On the plus side, happy to hear Misty is making a full recovery and Timber is recovering from whatever he noshed on. Our fur babies...they find the weirdest stuff to snack on, don't they? 😊

  18. WOW......that's quite an update but thank heavens K and the other driver are alright. That Jeep is a very STURDY vehicle and it protected her as much as it could have. Misty sounds like she's on the final leg (haha) of her surgical journey - YAY. Poor Timber - well I think he should have realized when he had his first mouth full of styrofoam that it was NOT a treat to be eaten but some things are just too irresistible to ignore. Glad he's OK...........Hope maybe life can slow down a bit for the Momster though. STRESS is not a good thing either ! :)

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

  19. Lulu: "Oh wow! What an eventful few weeks! We are very glad that K is all right after that scary accident, and that Timber is feeling better after eating what shouldn't be eaten."
    Charlee: "Yeah, let that be a lesson to you, Chaplin! Chaplin? Hey, Chaplin, where'd you go?"
    Chaplin: "Sorry, I was just trying to eat this twist-tie that somebody dropped on the floor in the kitchen. Did I miss something?"
    Charlee: "Forget it."

  20. Your mom has had a lot going on. I am glad her granddaughter was OK. And I am glad Misty is doing well and Timber recovered. XO

  21. OMGoodness, that is TOO much going on for one family! We are so glad that K is alright, it sounds like it could have been so much worse, so thank goodness for that. Happy for Misty doing so well, that must be a relief, but Timber just wanted some attention paid to him! We hope for all of your sakes that the next few weeks are less eventful!
    Kiki and Rosie

  22. Goodness, we're so glad that K is okay! Sounds like the Rubicon did its job of keeping her safe. And hip hip hooray for Misty's recovery entering the home stretch!!

  23. I'm so glad that everyone is okay! Great news on Misty! I am so happy that all is going smoothly in her recovery. As for K, thank goodness for the safe vehicle. Whew.


Thanks for wooing at us. We love your comments!
