Hi-Woo EveryPuppy & Other 4-Legged & 2-Legged Friends,
We here are all well & doing great. We can't believe that May is almost over & Da Cos & I are gonna bring ya up-to-date about the goings on wif all of us:
End of April & 1st week of May was ruff on our mommy. She knew that interviewers were checking up about her wif her professional references, but she wasn't getting any offers for work. Her former employer (& we do say that nicely, but what we are really thinking -- GRRRRRRR!) would tell her that she gave a good reference about her & lied. We knows this cuz she called mommy into her office & told her what she was actually telling the interviewers about mommy. She gave the lady 1 week's notice, but took some time off during that same week. Those last 2 weeks at the job were stressful for her & waiting to hear if she got her new job fur sure & she got that nasty skin infection again. The doctor's told her that it was due to stress. At least her blood pressure stayed normal. They caught it early with meds. In spite of that woman's sabotaging, mommy finally got a nice, new job wif a great group of people. Their HR person there was the one that called mommy to tell her that sumthing was strange about her former employer - in fact she refused to give a reference about her wif them for no reason than she didn't like the person asking the questions! Mommy had interviewed hard for this job & it finally paid off. Mommy no longer works for the Univ. of PGH. She now works for the Univ. of PGH Medical Center or otherwise known as UPMC in their Corporate Offices. She works for a Director of Clinical Support Services & Safety, Manager of Clinical Support Services, & 2 Coordinators. These women are all nurses as well. They made mommy feel very welcome. It's scary starting over & having to learn sumthing new as well as going from an academic, teaching setting to the medical side. But she is up for it & has survived her first 2 weeks there! She also had to go & get a whole new wardrobe. For 13 yrs. she was allowed to wear "casual" clothes like jeans, now at her new job she has to "dress casual" & not allowed jeans or t-shirt.
I turned the BIG ONE YEAR OLD
on May 6.
Erin's birfday was on May 7; Mommy turned ** on May 10. Mommy started her new job on May 12. Oh, don't want to furget that Mommy & her Charlie Horse had their 3rd anniversary as being trail buddies also on May 12. Daddy & Mommy's 32nd anniversary was on May 18 (Woo-Hoo alot of stuff going on!!) And, don't furget Mother's Day!
Bud & Charlie Horse are still getting to know each other. Horsies just luv to roll in the dirt (so do we), especially if they get sweaty & itchy.
Daddy & The Bud-sterCharlie
This Memorial Day weekend we finally had great weather so mommy & daddy could go out in the park wif Bud & Charlie. They rode the trails on Sunday for 3 hrs. (we hear Charlie was all tuckered out cuz he has to walk fast to keep up wif his younger bruther, Bud. Bud is a fast walker. Today they rode for 2 hrs. & wanted to make it back to the barn before the rain storms moved back into PGH.
We wants to thank all of you for yur support over the past 9 months fur our mommy. We all appreciate our friendship wif all of our blogging friends. You mean a great deal to us. In the next week, mommy will help us to get caught up wif all of you & stop by yur blogs.
