Just a quick post. Tonight nobody is home and I'm cleaning house like a mad bandit. Tomorrow morning I'm having surgery on my right shoulder and goodness knows when the cleaning will get done again. Anyway, after I vaccuumed I was going to wash Moe's spit and slobber off the glass doors so I had put the paper towels and windex ont the coffee table. I was happily vaccuuming away (I LIKE cleaning when nobody is home) and while I had my back turned Moe took my paper towels and "killed" them. There were white fluff and puffs EVERYWHERE! :rolleyes: He saw me noticing him and ran off with what was left of the roll (which was not much). I was shocked, surprised, and I'll have to admit, HAPPY to see that he's still got that mischevious streak I have come to love over the years. I had to laugh! Moe is over ten years old now and hasn't gone on a real Moe-like rampage in literally YEARS! I thought he had put his wild and crazy youth behind him and settled into quiet old age. I am happy to see that the heart of a crazed lunatic still beats in my graying boy. :D

Terry, with Spencer at age 12 1/2, I know EXACTLY what you mean! A week or so ago, Spencer literally emptied his toy box - they were spread all over the house. It has been a long time since he has done that. Yesterday he was running around in the back yard like a nut & my brother said "For an old guy, he still has moments of crazy energy doesn't he?" While I love the senior years, I also love those moments that take me back. Go Moe! :)

First of all...good luck with your shoulder surgery!!! I had to have mine operated on four times in two years due to some obnoxious physical therapist who went a little overboard and did some major damage but now I can finally use it and feels so much better!

I bet Moe will be by your bed anytime you are resting...they just seem to know it is time to slow down and take care of their owner...Annie amazed us!

Take care and good luck with the surgery!

When they are puppies we want them to hurry and grow out of that part and when they start to grow old, we'd do anything to have them like pups again.

Hope your surgery went well and Moe waits a little while to tear something else up!

Hey Terry, I'm glad to hear the old boy's still got it. In this house, goofy is always good and a goofy dog is a happy dog. Once in a while Ol' Franny will make a play for action and I love it when it happens.
I hope the shoulder went well. I work as an ortho surgery nurse in Boston so I know how painful the procedures can be. Remember, this is why they made painkillers and you get no credit for being John Wayne.
Pretty soon you can get back to playing tug o' war with Moe (but not too soon)
Let me know if you have questions.
Good Luck

Thanks Bev. I certainly know how you feel when Franny gets frisky. Moe isn't perky too often lately, but he does love when it snows, and goodness knows we've had more than our fair share of it so far this winter! I love to see signs of his crazy youth. I have had to be tough on poor Moe the last couple of days because he loves to sit on my lap but my shoulder can't take his nudging and pushing. He has had to be content with sitting at my side, poor boy. Thanks to all of you for your well-wishes for my shoulder. My doctor was just going to scrape off some bone spurs but found that I had a torn rotator cuff, also. That's a much longer recovery with five weeks in a sling, darn it! :( But, at least it is fixed and I can look forward eventually to a pain-free future.
