I am back....

I made it!  
What an awful few days....  
I was really sick, I think Beth told you!
As you can see I look a little disheveled 
and will spend this afternoon getting 
my hair combed and my ears cleaned 
(that is my favorite part!)
Let me tell you what I have learned from being sick....
1.  That Holly Golightly is a very interesting person.  
Beth read Breakfast at Tiffany's to me.  
Who knows....but I do love to be read to....
2.  I definatley know all the words to Beth and my song....

(FYI -- this is the song she sang to me on the way to Minnesota the day
they came to get me from's been our song ever since....)

She kept singing it to me....
3.  That I have the BEST friends in the whole wide world!  
I have read all your comments, emails 
and Beth told me about all the phone calls....
it brings tears to my eyes to think all 
of you like me that much to take 
the time to say a prayer for me 
and to think of me as often as you did.  
Thanks doesn't seem like enough to say 
but that's all I have and 
I do mean it from the 
bottom of my big Newfie heart.....

One more thing -- 
I got a present in the mail from Miss Sasha 
on Friday while I was sick but Beth said 
I had to wait to open it until this afternoon 
so I would enjoy it to the fullest extent.  
So I will be telling you all about it tomorrow!

Later -- Remington --
a truly blessed Newfie
-- out!

So glad you are back and well. Consider I'm combing your ears from here ( my kitties like to have me rubbing their ears...).
I'm sure Beth needs a lot of snuggles to relax now.
Take care!

Sandra said...

so now you made me cry, listening to the song and imagining beth singing it to you while you were sick, just touched my heart. perfect song for you. when baby girl had her surgery she would cry at night from the pain, it was a 12 inch incision and her pain made us cry with her, to get her to sleep we put her on the love seat and made a pallet for us on the floor, we would lay beside her and as long as one of us was there, holding her paw, she would quit crying. her first night home, we switched out every hour laying beside her and talking to her. you are blessed to have your mommy and daddy. hope you get that pkg open today

Stewey said...

Remington - I'm sooooo glad that you are feeling better, pal :)
My mom was crying reading your post today, because she can very much relate to it! Stay well, buddy!

Sarge said...

Hey Remington!
Wow, I'm so super glad you are feeling better! Blogville's power of the paw is amazing. Beth sure knows all the right things to do and I'm tickled she read to you. I bet that was sooooo soothing and nice.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

OMG! Remington! I'm soooo sorry to hear you were sick big guy! I didn't know until now as I was babysitting the grandkids over the weekend and haven't on the computer since Friday morning. I was so upset that I missed your Beth's posts all weekend. Thankfully you are better today, I can't imagine how upset your Momma must have been! I love the song you and Beth have, I have never heard it before. It's beautiful and brought tears to my eyes. Enjoy your grooming and rest up until your in tip top shape buddy!

We are SO HAPPY you're feeling better, my friend!!!
I like to be read to, too! While I was in the slammer, Mom came and read to me every day until I could go HOME. She read to me from Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein -- that's where I got my name! Cool, huh?
Anyway, big hugs to you from our mom!
Play bows,

I am so happy you feel better Remington!! I prayed real hard for you big guy!!!
Bambi went to the vets once about 5 years before she died and then was sick for 30 days!!! She throw up everyday sometimes 3 or 4 times a day. We came real close to losing her!!!!!! She had had trouble with the rabies shot for years before with each time getting worse!!! Only that time she up chucked everyday for 30 days!!!
It was her last rabies shot!!!

Tracy said...

Oh Remington, I am so so thankful you are up and at 'em today and feeling better. Gosh, it is no fun being sick but even more concerning when there is nothing any of us could do except pray, send healing thoughts and puppy kisses or kitty kisses in my case. I'm glad you feel better...

chicamom85 said...

Remington, what a beautiful post and we love that song. I can only imagine that it must have been very comforting to hear as you were coming to your new home and especially when you were sick. I am so glad today is a better day for you. Soon you will be playing football and have forgotten all about the evil sickies. I was happy to see you at Madi's party and totally understand why you had to leave early. I hope you like your package. The foodables inside are all natural and made in the USA but if your tummy isn't ready for them, I understand my sweet.

Rest now

Loveys Sasha
