My mom can't come to the blog right now. She's still "indisposed". By "indisposed", I mean that she's still sitting in the corner thinking about what a wench she's been this last week. I do believe, however, that she is formulating a plan for better behavior, so things are definitely looking up for the weekend.

Seeing how she was "indisposed" yesterday (read: in bed with the covers pulled over her head), my Aunt Chrissy came over and picked me up for some mani/pedi action. I really like it when Aunt Chrissy takes me for a nail appointment, since we go to the specialist at my doctor's office rather than the ham-fisted hacks at the mega store. (The last time Mom took me to that hellhole, they stuffed me in a crate with a muzzle on my mouth and then got all upset when I voiced my displeasure with a few well-placed poops on their filthy floor.)

(What can I say? Some of us prefer a little privacy when bathing, and don't consider it at all pleasant to be hosed down in some kind of prison re-entry fashion that involves cavity searches and a strong de-lousing liquid).

After the nail appointment, my Aunt Chrissy asked if I wanted to do a little shopping, and of course, I was thrilled! I do love to shop, especially when I can ride in the front of the cart and noodge the items that I want. That's how I've obtained all of my favorite toys....I'm placed in a shopping cart for safekeeping, and as we troll up and down the aisles I grab whatever strikes my fancy. If Mom chooses the toy I'm not as enthusiastic about it, but you can bet that if it's something I've selected for myself it will be treasured forever.

I'd like you to meet the newest addition to my menagerie: This is Constance. Constance the Cow, to be exact.

Constance is a real cut-up and decided to play "I'm a big burly wrestling guy and I'm going to pin you, Stewey!" for that picture. I figured since it was her first day and all, I'd indulge her, but after a few strategic kicks to my nether regions, I figured I'd better show her who's boss:
"Night night, little Constance. You need to be quiet now and take a nap."

That isn't a very good picture of me, but it does allow you to view the nice job that Miss Nekka managed on my paws. I thought the cucumber moisturizer was especially lovely.

Mom is still working on the Shepherd's Bush piece. She finished all of the over-one lettering last night and went to bed with a headache. I heard her mumbling to herself that she hasn't a clue how y'all do that over-one stitching so beautifully out there and that she was definitely not made for it, but she persevered and got it done. I'm going to noodge her in the direction of the Happy Chair now to see if she can make some more progress.

Happy Weekend, all! I do hope that if you are expecting bad weather that you stay inside with something lovely for comfort! Take care!

With love from your pal,



  1. My sweet prince, Stewey! Love Constance. Great colors on her. I liked your quote when you said for her to take a nap. I was laughing hysterically at that one. You look great in your photos! Hugs and kisses to Mommie. And kudos to Aunt Chrissy for taking you out! Everyone needs pampering now and then.

  2. Aw Stewey, We just love your new toy. Rory thinks the color is perfect. I'm sure he would enjoy a game of tug. :)

    I hope you and Mommy Dearest have a great weekend.

  3. Constance is great!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Oh, Stewey you look Mar-vo-lous! Yes, I know it is my version of the spelling, and not Mr. Webster's. And it is a good thing that you have a backup in Aunt Chrissy when Mo-ther is down in the dumps.
    I don' like the over-1 business, either, Coni. I think people are crazy to do an entire project on 40 ct over 1 (or any count above 25 for that matter), especialy a Big Project. Either that or their eyes work better than mine.
    Have a good weekend.

  5. stewey you're a card
    good you are maintaining supremecy
    over the barnyard creatures

    but watch out for those squirrels out your back door!

  6. Looking forward to the SB project. I need to do some over one things as I keep going for these totally BAP which need to be sized down to fit in anywhere!

  7. Aww Stewey what a nice pedicure and your toy is cute.

  8. Stewey, please visit my blog and meet Coco...she also puts up with a temperamental Mom....www.thepurplethread.blogspot.com

  9. Dearest Master Stewey ~

    I heart your posts. That is all.


  10. Super mani/pedi Stewey. Constance looks right at home already. Please tell your mother that she should see a pattern called "Puppy Santa" on www.hoffmandis.com. I imagine it looks a lot like you did as a tot!

  11. Love the new toy, Stewey. You're such a little prince; my Iggy would get along wonderfully with you, or perhaps horribly, because you two are so much alike.

    Mommie dearest, keep up the good work on your stitching. (:

  12. Stewey, you're the luckiest dog I know.
