Isn't that just the way it goes....

Well, Mike is leaving us for the weekend!  Fine!  It isn't like there is NOTHING going on....  I know he is busy but I wonder if he forgot....  Tomorrow is my Gotcha Day.  AND he won't be here!  Beth tried to calm me down but it really hurts my feelings.  Beth said that we are going to do something special and then on Sunday when Mike comes back we can party AGAIN!  I guess that is okay....but geez....

I wanted to give you an update on Mr. Duck.  He will be fine!  Thank goodness he came through the surgery just great!  He won't be playing like he did and he has to have extensive physical therapy but he WILL be okay!

The weather is warming up and it's getting really wet outside.  I don't like to get my feet wet.  GROSS!  I make sure I have my towel by the door when I come in --

Do you like it?  It's my favorite!  I think I'll name it....Talula the Towel!  I like to name things....just makes me feel closer to them. 

Later --- Remington -- the disappointed but clean Newfie -- out!

OK, here is a rather personal question, Remington. You don't like getting your feet wet, but what about the rest of you? Newfies generally are known to like a dip in the sea...

We're sure your Gotcha weekend will be lost of fun!

Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Remington, Happy Gotcha Day for tomorrow - we can't imagine how anyone could go away on such an important day!!!
Glad the duck is going to make it.

Talula is a very nice name for you towel. Talula's color is prefect for her assigned job too.

Gloria said...

Rem, why don't you just wipe your feeties on Dad's jacket just befor he leaves? Then he won't ever forget he is missing out on Gotcha Day! HUMPH! Would serve him right! (glad Duck is OK). Have a good weekend Rem!

We used to call our towel TOWLIE! But now we get our feet whiped on a rug at the door when necessary. . it's not fun. . . but it doesn't happy to often now that Daddy fixed the puddle issue that use to happen near the back door!

Woo Woooo

Such a cute pic of you with that towel in your mouth! I just want to reach up and give it a good tug of war!

Frankie Furter said...

Talula can keep Bob company... when you are busy. Glad the duck is going to be OK.
Happy Gotcha Day tomorrow!!! Hope you have pics to share!! Lots of 'em.

Madi and Mom said...

Jake of Florida said...

Yeah, we have the same question: a Newfie who doesn't like to get his feet wet??? Good thing you don't live here in sunny - except from May through November -- South Florida!!

But nevermind -- just have a Happy Gotcha' Day - regadless of when you celebrate. Just think of it as the Gotcha' Day season!!!

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

SGR said...

Woof! Woof! Remington. Where's MIKE going? Well, for sure you'll have FUN with Beth. Me too have a towel I respond to it as "tal." it's going to be in the 40's this weekend ... snow is finally melting and it will be messy to go for a walk. Be safe. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

JackDaddy said...

You don't like getting your feet wet? What kind of labrador are you? :)

I like Talula - your mom must have been originated in the South! :)

Nadine said...

Happy early Gotcha Day Remington!! Maybe Mike going away isn't so bad....If he didn't go away, then you would only have 1 party, but instead, now, you have 2 whole days of celebration!!

Waggles & Chi kisses, Chewy & Lilibell

Twinkietinydog said...

Talula's a cutie. I hope she stick around after the rain season. As for duckie, I wasn't worried since I already knew Dr. Remington was in charge. Now about your gotcha day: don't be silly. You were just guaranteed two celebrations. Enjoy!

Miley said...

Poor Remington, can't wait to here how your sunday went!!! Your towel is pretty cool, just like you!!

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...


How's that!?!

We have a towel at the door now too - but not bekhause I don't like my feet wet - akhtually, I'm a bit of a Siberian Sponge!

Merdie and I laughed at your towel's name - Talulah was Merdie's name prior to being saved from a (no) life outdoors by her now peoples!

Junior and Orion said...

Gone for your Gotcha Day??? How horrible!!!! We are thinking you better get extra goodies for having to put your celebrations off!!!

Sagira said...

Aww...I can't wait to hear all about your Gotcha day! I hope it is a great one for you.

Dip-Dip and The Bridge said...

You are very multi-talented Remmington, a surgeon and domestic God. Our mum wonders where she can get a dog who cleans up after itself.

Lucy the Cat said...

You're so funny, Remington. I'm glad to hear that Mr. Duck is recovering. Also, I'm betting Beth really appreciates you wiping your feet. Mama wishes Papa was better about that.

I want to wish you a very Happy Gotcha Day. I won't be around tomorrow to do it. I hope you have a really great day!


Teddy Bear said...

It's almost your Happy Gotcha Day! How exciting! I know your pawrents must have something special planned since someone won't be there for your actual Gotcha Day. I'm so glad that Mr. Duck made it through.:)

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Wow your Gotcha Day is tomorrow - how cool! We will be sure to make mom log on to wish you a happy day! We are very relieved that Mr Duck pulled through! And we think that the picture of you and Talula together is very cute!!

Nice towel. Enjoy your gotcha day!


Hi Remington,

Sorry your daddy can't be there for Gotcha Day tomorrow but we'll be here and we can't wait to hear how your pawrents gotcha!

By the way Rem, I luuuv the blankie you gave me. Mommy put it in my little bed and I wadded it all up just the way I like it and I sleep with it all the time! And dream of YOU know who?


Leo and mom said...

Hi Remy,
Sunday is MY gotcha day, so in a way we get to share an important holiday in our lives.

I'm sorry Mike is going to be out of town, but maybe that means you'll get an extra chewie out of the deal. Look really sad and that gets them every time!

It's hard to believe that we've been away from our brothers and sisters for a whole year now. I miss Mary and Dave too, but we were so lucky to have them as our Mommy's Mom and Dad.

Happy Gotcha Day Rem.
Love your BroLeo.

SquirrelQueen said...

You are lucky cause you get to have two Gotcha Days Reminton, that's pretty special. Glad to hear Mr. Duck will recover, after a little physical therapy he should be ready to play.
Talula is a great name for your towel.
A little early, but Happy Gotcha Day!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

My mom thinks that you are cute! Great picture of you with that towel!
