I am feeling much better today!!

WOW!! Thanks for all the Get Well wishes~~it is so nice to have fur-friends that care :-) I really appreciate you all. I got lots of sleep and am feeling much better. It was just a tummy bug, And...she gave me my doggie biscuit once I felt better. Mom says that she thinks it was really just a ploy to get all my blankies and my pillow washed~~Guess she will never know fur sure!! he..he..he!!

Yesterday and today, Mom was feeling a bit irritated and frustrated. I heard lots of talk and mutterings about some new governor guy raising taxes by 66% and she bout hit the roof!! She said this was gonna cost her an arm and a leg!! YIKES!! My mom is half American Indian so lets say she was on the warpath about it being done in the wee hours of the night, and just hours before some duck session was over!! Believe me with her mood, when I napped, I slept with one eye open!!

Then today she was all up in arms cuz she found out that this same guy did some more bad stuffs. For the guys leaving this duck thing, he was giving them government jobs and for the guys staying, he was giving them pork!! I am sitting here thinkin....ummmm...some pork sounds awful good to me, but apparently not this kind of pork, *sigh* and all this stuff was given away for votes!! She was going on and on and said right now she hates Illinois and wants to move to Texas where there is none of these state taxes!! I knew I had to do something to calm her down or she was gonna blow fur sure!! So I decided to play some spoons with her, she always likes that game. I got my Scottie mug and some treats and we were ready to roll!!Here I am using my peripheral vision~~she thinks I am not looking but I have my eyes on her, I know just what she is doing. I could have whipped her really bad but I let her win some, so she would be in a better mood!! It was all working pretty good until tonight. She heard that these darn taxes start with her next check!! Arrrgggg~~These darn guys better Stop making her so irritated!! I am sure you other Illinois bloggers know just how we feel!! Ummmmm...What will do tomorrow???

    Mom says she is Scotch/Irish but mostly just Southern American but she is on the warpath too. Things are getting so expensive. Our mayor and city council recently changed the way our water is billed ....holy moley mom was threatening to quit taking a shower BUTT we had a heart to heart. I told her I don't like stinky moms

  13. My doggie uses his peripheral vision on me too, especially if we're playing and he's getting ready to pounce! (His name is actually Pounce).

    You look so cute sitting at your cards. Did you have a good hand? Or is it called a paw in dog land?

  19. Yay! I'm glad you're feeling better! But BOO! I'm sorry abouts those tax things. I don't know much about numbers but that seems like a LOT! It was good of you to play spoons with your mom but maybe you could just offer to eats those ducks and porks for her. I'd even help if you want!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  20. Oh Jazzi, I am so sorry your mom is so upset with her state. M.O.M. doesn't like our govnenor so I kind of understand how you feel.
    Keep winning at "spoons"!!
    Hugs and wags, Mistaya

  21. Jazzi, we are so glad you are feeling better!! The pictures are adorable. Mom understands the upset over the taxes. We are in Virginia and have a new Governor who is making some rather bad changes which is so sad. You can't even go to the grocery store to buy food the way the prices and taxes have jumped up recently. We guess we will have to stay at home all the time if we can even afford to stay here! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  22. I had the sickies, too, but I feel much better today. I am glad we are both better. We live in Illinois, too, so we feel your pain!

    Your pal, Pip

  23. Jazzi, so glad you are feeling better. And yes, we fully understand your Mom's anger over our tax increase. We are going to feel that pain as well. We just hope that once they take all our good hard earned kibble money, they know how to budget it this time around. :) The HoundDogs and Mom

  24. Jazzi you are so adorable, and your mom puts you in the cutest poses!

  25. miss jazzi,

    i'm so very much glad your tummy is feelin' better now!
    my mama says she 100% understands your mama bein' upset over that tax hike thingie. it's really super ridiculous. she thinks a lot of peeps 'n businesses are gonna leave illinois. maybe you could come live in south carolina with me 'n asa!
    btw, it was very nice of you to play spoons with your mama to help her fell better.
