Belated Pictoowes of Stella's last day in NewYawk

These pictoowes awe fwom  the last day that The cwown pwinsess Stella Bean Latifah of Goobewstan (my Stanley's sissie)  spent wif me.  She and hew giwl wewe hewe fow the gweat DWB get togethew and stayed a few extwa days to my delight

the last evening we went fow a stwoll  along the Hudson Wivew
I wanted to show hew as much as pawsible in the time we had
the hoomans talked, we sniffed..it was a bootiful evening

see that boat wif the sails???? Mommi says that's the one all the DWB hoomans wewe on a few nights eawliew and it was heavenly to glide quietly along the wivew
those poles used to suppowt a piew, now they'we just decowation
we attwacted a lot of attention..you'd think they had nevew seen squawe dogs befowe

we stopped and talked to lots of othew fuwwkids..this guy looked so much like Joe Stains..I was weally disappointed to see him being all smiley and not leaving a single stain..obviously, he was an imp ostow
we got home and flopped down on the bed fow a last love fest wif Stella and Stanley's Giwl Lisa( she is an expawt bum scwitchiew)..I hope they come back soon, despite the fact that the fiwst day they got hewe , I inadvewtantly gave Stella a little bit of  haiw stwipping, (luckily, she didn't weally cawe..she's soopew cool and can give as good as she gets) hehehe..but aftew that, we wewe best of fwiends

I hope all of you go to El'Bows bloggie to vote fow his biwfday contest and leave him a Happy Biwfday message while thewe!!!

I won't be awound fow a few days so pleez I again ask fow youw patience in getting to all of you..I will twy honest...you know I love you all to bits wight????

I'm having the salve put in fow anothew seven days, so I look kind of gweasy and icky, but it feels bettew.
Mommi is investigating the suwgewy pawt, to see if we can somehow affowd it, it's pwetty obvious that this will be a wecuwwing pwoblem and she doesn't want my cownea to get damaged

Now do you wemembew when I asked you to submit pictoowes to my sissie kitty Gwacie fow a contest a while ago?
It was fow doggies and kitties , but i think the only doggie othew than me who submitted a pictoowe was my BFF Lacie

Anyway, the winnew  will be announced on Gwacie's bloggie whewe she is also having an auction

go hewe pleez

This auction promises to have something for everyone thanks to our wonderful furries that have donated items for you to bid on. All money raised will help Maxie pay for his vet bills. These bills were incurred due to a vet that made a horrible mistake. Our photo contest for Maxie was a great success with many photos being submitted and many voting for their favorite photos. The winners of the summer photo contest will be announced on July 25. The winners in each category, there are four, will be given gifts custom picked by me, Gracie. Head over to the auction blog and see what great items are waiting for you. Again, thanks to all who have helped with their donations of money or items.

I'm sooo In salted

Well, it's back to weality  I guess.
Aftew all the wondewful magic of visitows  and pawtying the gwim evewyday has wetuwned.
I still have some pictoowes to show you of Stella and i having a bootiful last walk togethew befowe she had to go home to Goobewstan, but fiwst I have to show you this

now if you'we squeemish, pleez don't look  
it's pwetty yucky.

Mommi totally fweeked out yestewday..I  woke up wif a booboo eye and she dwagged me to the dogtow wight away
I had blood all ovew my face which she wiped away wif a stewile gauzey thing
it totally wuined my eye linew
they wewe nice enough to see me wight away..luckily, they awe only a seven minute walk fwom my house
Pleez look at the wall above me, do you notice something familiaw???
yep, it's my angel sissie and bwuffuws Nikki,Chawlie and Nowa  , and Petey on the uppew left.
I think I heawd my name called
the nice nuwse lady put us in an examination woom and weighed me 
( I won't tell you how much I weigh....aftew all, I'm a giwl)
and I checked things out while we waited fow the dogtow
I was a vewy good giwl, this stuff doesn't scawe me, but the lady held me so I  would be vewy still fow my eye exam
The dogtow put all sowts of icky liquids in my eye and looked wif a weally bwight light
I'm sposed to put  some salve in my eyes fow ten days, twice a day, so that the infection goes away and the cyst thingy doesn't come back
He said, I don't have any ulcewation on my cownea ow anything.  
That's the good pawt
Hewe's the in salting pawt:  He says I have a chwonic pwoblem wif my eye lidses and most pwobably need an "eye Lift"
Well, I nevew!!!!!
I'm only thwee and thwee quawtews yeaws old and don't have baggy eyes like Mommi, so I don't undewstand what he is talking about..sheesh..cosmetic suwgewy fow MOI??????
Do you think I look old and baggy?????

I finally can show you some behind the scenes photos of the most excitewing week we had

Ouw houseguest (Stella and hew giwl) awwived in the dead of night to avoid those pesky puppewatzy that hound this cwown pwinsess of Goobewstan whewevew she goes

hew Giwl Lisa(almost my mothew -in -law at one point), gave me lots of lovies 

I couldn't believe I was meeting the Goobette

aftew a little walk , showing hew my stweet, I invited hew in
I was most impwessed by hew Non shell aunt attitoode wif the big city
She went into ouw whiwly doow and the elevatow as if she had lived hewe all hew life..and the city sounds didn't even make a dent in hew composoowe

when we got to the eevatow I stawted to look fow my Stanley
I couldn't believe that he didn't come see me

Stella got comfowtable on the sofa wight away

I let hew west aftew hew long flight
(they had theiw flight cancelled and then we wooted and it took two times as long as it should have)

aftew a while we switched places..she had to twy out what was most comfy fow hew

the next day was when most people wewe awwiving fow the meeting  and gathewing on auntie Jane's and Petey's wooftop fow a dwinkie at 5, but befowe that I had to dwag my guest to lunch at Pastis(evewyone who stays at my house has to go thewe, hehehe)

while we waited fow a table Mommi had to talk to Mumsie about hew awwival

they always giggle togethew

I asked Mommi to get off the phone so we could have lunch..Stella and I wewe stawving

finally, we got seated in the shade
(it was a bizawwo day..sun, heat, wain, sun , heat, wain altewnating all day)

we wewe hot and hungwy

Mommi and Daddi had theiw oosual(split a buwgew and have a mawtooni )
I showed Stella the pwopew way to eat those yummielicious fwench fwies..she leawned vewy vewy quickly

as soon as we got done we had to wun home cause it was stawting to wain again luckily, we live two blocks away and we made it befowe the big downpoow

Mommi was getting mowe and mowe newvous that we wouldn't be able to go on the sailboat aftew dinnew, but as you'll see in this smilybox, the dogstaw smiled on us and we had a most bootiful evening
