Hi, friends!

I tried to get Mom to check in sooner (like everyday since Rudee passed) but you know Mom – she’s a slacker. We’ve been on a bit of a roller coaster since the year began.


January 2nd – Rudee’s passing.


We are doing good here. At first we all did a lot of sleeping.



“Poo on this day, Mom! I’m bored.”

Macy has taken everything WAY better than anyone expected. She’s back to driving ME crazy and trying to play with me ALL the time. We’ve been doing zoomies together and a couple of times I’ve sat between her paws like I used to do with Khia.

Everyone seems to be a lot more relaxed. Mom and Dad think all of us were out of sorts because we knew Rudee was sick.

Actually, the only thing out of sorts a little is Molly. She’s been breaking down the gate all the time and whimpering. We think it’s because, until yesterday, she has been on a steroid treatment for her foot, though, and not because she misses Rudee. She’s had a lot of accidents in the house and she’s been SUPER SUPER hungry ALL the time! Now that the steroid treatment stopped, we’ll see what happens next.

I don’t know if you noticed in the one picture above but Macy and Molly are on the couch – TOGETHER! Mom and Dad have slowly been re-introducing them to one another. This was an isolated incident where they were next to each other without Mom or Dad next to them. Usually it’s Dad on one couch with one pup and Mom on the other couch with the other pup.


Tuesday, January 9th, was 1 year since Jamison passed away. Mom didn’t want me to blog about it that day. She didn’t even tell Dad it was 1 year until yesterday because she said it was harder to talk about it on the actual day. She beats herself up about his passing all the time. It’s a very sore subject because she misses him more than anything.


Yesterday, January 10th, was Noodle Day – my 5th Gotcha Day! We didn’t have a party but Mom gave me 87 gazillion kisses.

I was a scruffy guy the day Mom found me!!! I don’t like baths or hair cuts but I’m glad to be flea, poop, mat, and worm free now.


Mom joined the gym and gets home from work/the gym at 8 pm. We don’t like it. We need more cuddles and kisses.

We hope everyone is having a great 2018 so far!

    Noodle, you and you family have had a lot of ups and downs, with more downs than ups. January is not a good month for ya’ll. I am so sorry I missed your gotcha day. Lexi wasn’t here to remind me. 😦 I sure hope Molly and Macy become friends. It would make everything so much easier. And yay for you sitting between Macy’s legs. I bet she likes that. Ask your Mom to get a picture! Lots of kisses and ear scratches. Mom #2 ❤

    We hope you have a non-eventful 2018. It’s good your mom is going to the gym, but not good when she gets home so late. Our mom goes at 5:30 in the morning so she is home on time at night, BUT then she is so tired. Either way we get the short end of things. But, hey the good news is you do have a gotcha day to celebrate. You look so forlorn until you got cleaned up. Thanks to your secretary for the posting. We love to hear from you!

  8. Happy Gotcha Day, N! So fun! Gotcha Days are the best! Ups and Downs are the way life plays out. It sounds like you’re all doing OK with it. Once you do your best, there’s nothing else you can do. Love you, buddy.

    Love and licks,

I read the sad news at FB and I cried with you… so much sad events in a row, that is really HARD….. but I like that your mama said nothing, she is right it makes things only harder and more sad… and we need no words to feel the love and the sadness for our friends we lost, right?
