Toys Brought Home Just For Me

Whoa! I didn't realize this picture was so dark! I think Mom needs to play with the settings on her camera again.
See those 2 balls in my mouth? Well they are called "stress balls" and they look like golfballs and have writting on them (somethinge about NAPA Autoparts - that's were Dad works). One of the reps at the marketing conference Dad and Mom went to for Dad's work was giving them away as prizes. Mom said she had to spin the prize wheel to win them for us. She won these 2 balls and a Nascar watch for herself!!! The cool thing about these balls is that they bounce and they're really soft. Mom couldn't believe they've held up so long. Sasha is supposed to have one, too but I like playing with both of them - AT THE SAME TIME!!!! Mom almost died laughing the first time I put both in my mouth. Since she laughed so hard the first few times I agreed to do it again and even pose for a picture. Anything to make Mom laugh right now (more on that in a little bit). If you hear your humans talking about "stress toys" may sure they get one or two for you! They're a BLAST!!!!!
Sunday is the Super Bowl! We're rooting for the Steelers cuz that's my Dad's favorite team! Okay, Dad is rooting for the Steelers and I'm rooting for Mom cuz she's making BACON WRAPPED TATERTOTS WITH CHEESE!!!!!! I can't wait!!! Mom likes to watch the game for the commercials, that means the tatertots will be done before the game starts. I wonder if I could arrange for the game to start a lot earlier than it does. I don't know if I can wait almost all day for the yummy treats!
I might not be able to post very much for I don't know how long. I'll try to update when I can, but it probably won't be very much. Mom is having trouble at work right now. They're being very very very mean to her and monitoring her and checking up on her a lot and I want to go bite them. They made her cry yesterday! Dad, Sasha, Gunnar and I took care of Mom last night and cheered her up. We even convinced her to make another cake to help her feel better. I got a small bite of the cake, too! (OH! And to answer everybody's question about the Angel Food cake, I got some of that, too.) Tomorrow Mom and I are going to do some serious baking to get her mind off of her stupid bosses. I can't decide on what kind of treat I want her to make for us! It's a hard decision because there's so many good ones and so many new ones I want to try! Anyway, back to Mom's mean bosses. She thinks they're trying to make it so horrible for her that she wants to quit (she does want to, but she's not goging to). They did the same thing to one of her friends a couple years ago. Mom has been there almost 7 years and has never gotten in trouble for anything and this week she got in trouble twice for stuff she didn't have anything to do with! She's going to start looking for something new, but right now there really isn't much out there so she'll just deal with the mean people and be thankful she hasn't been fired yet. Dad gave Mom a peptalk and she felt better until the alarm clock went off this morning and then she felt really sick. Tomorrow she'll feel better because she'll be off and we'll be busy.
Hope you all have a fun weekend and stay safe if you're watching the Super Bowl (humans get crazy watching that game!!!!). Hopefully I'll be able to post and visit all of you soon.

You look so cute with your new toys. Mom hates her job too sometimes but gotta do what you have to do to buy toys for your pups.

Peanut said...

What great toys. Peanut would probably ruin them. I'm sorry your mom's bosses are being so mean. I hope they stop it. Maybe I should come bite them.

Snowball said...

I can barely see you. I can see only the 2 balls. LOL!!!


Moco said...

It was hard to tell that was you with those stress balls in your mouth. They do look like fun. Where do we get those bacon wrapped tator tots?

Miss Sophie said...

I wished my Mum would do cake making with me, it sounds like pawsome fun.
I should send George over to scare your Mums bosses but I'd miss him too much...
Velvety kissies

The Daily Echo said...

Mean bosses are stupid! They're just jealous and unhappy in their lives because they don't have cool dogs like you and all your buddies.

The Army of Four said...

I LOVE that picture of yo... WAIT A MINUTE!!! Someone made your mom cry!?!? Let us know if you'd like us to come rough someone up for you. Well, no... we're not really good at that. But we could hug your mom. Let us know about that, OK?

Maggie and Mitch said...

Mitch loves stuffing two things in his mouth at once too, Kaos, but he's never had 2 balls in there at the same time before! How did you do that?!
Your bacon wrapped tater tots sound delicious! We're rooting for the Steelers too!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch


Hi Kaos,

Thanks so much for say you, Sasha & Gunner will let me use you guys on my bother/sister post. The Christmas picture will be fine if you don't have another one.

The Mommy said to tell your Mommy to hang in there and don't let them push her out until she's ready to go. The Mommy worked for 40 years and then the last 8 were hell when the new mgmt came.When Christus sold the hospital she had to go with the BO. She quit working for them and is back at the same hospital for the people that bought it and loves it.

God bless....Mona

You look so cute with the stress toys, Kaos! I'll be sure to look out for it to try them out too...*wink*

Sorry to hear that your Mom had a hard time at her work. Her bosses sure are mean...I hope you'll get a chance to bite them. Hard. Keep giving her loads of hugs and kisses when she gets back from work...I'm sure she needs them after a long day with the meanies.


Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Kaos,
I had to look hard to figure out where you were cos all I saw initially were the 2 balls!
Sorry to hear that the people your mom works with are meanies (except the one who gave her the rocking chair of course!!).. I wish I can bite their bum bums for upsetting your mom! Can you please ask your mom to warn them that if they are mean to her ever again, I will come over (don't ask me how) and bite them with my crooked teefies and Hershey's razor sharp ones?

** Hugs **

Petra said...

I'm so glad that your mom has your dad and the rest of you to help her keep things in perspective. Being around mean people stinks, and I hope she finds a new job soon.
