Tuckered Out…

All peanut butter tuckered out, and in her dreams…


See the full story of Cee-Cee’s peanut butter adventure, by Barbara Anne Helberg, at the next post (BELOW):

Got Any More of This Stuff, Mom?

“Hmmm…Hmmm…Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm! Mom! So good!”





“Mom that stuff’s great! What’s it called again?”

“That’s peanut butter, Dumplin'”

“Got any more?”

“Manners, please. What do good girls say?”


“Please. Plleeaasseee?”

“What a good girl…


but I’m afraid I’m not done with this one, yet.”


“Are you sure, Mom?”



This one’s different, Mom, but just as good! Hmmm…You’re the best, Mom!”


All peanut butter tuckered out, and in her dreams…”Hmmm…Hmmm. Wake me up when there’s more, Mom. Hmmmm…”

National Mutt Day

In honor of US National Mutt Day, here is my adopted sweetie-pie, Cee-Cee, also known as BUCKEYE TUT-HUT-NUT-MUTT at http://www.chickensoupforbuckeyes.wordpress.com :



Cee-Cee came to live forever with me in October of 2010. She was in a foster home after being removed from a shelter one day away from her meeting with the Needle Man.

God bless those willing to act as foster parents for the sake of getting more dogs permanently adopted. Bonnie and Dale saved Cee-Cee for me!

Cee-Cee says, “Thanks, everyone, for giving me a second chance! Love you, Mom!”

Not Quite…


“Hi, Mom! Want me to hold still for a picture?”

“Yes, Sweetie-pea.”

“That picture felt kind of sticky, Mom…


but I know you really just want to make my eyes turn green with that flash!”

“Not quite. I really wanted to get a shot of that ‘Miss Dole’ sticker on your head, my little angel.”

“Mom. Really? A FishEye lens view of me?”



“Ha, ha, ha! Very funny, Mom!”

“What, Cee-Cee? Sarcasm? It’s a riot! You do look very funny!”


“Well, sure, right. So… Give the camera to me for a minute…”

Out of Control

During a walk around the neighborhood, Cee-Cee suddenly stopped to take a look at these cuddle-balls:


She thought they were cute.


“Hey, Mom, those guys are cute, aren’t they?”

“They certainly are.”

“Bet they’d like to go for a walk like me.”

“I’m sure they would.”


“Wow! Mom, they’re getting a bit excited, aren’t they?”

“Well, I’m sure they’re jealous of your getting out for a walk.”

“Yeah, but…


they are starting to take it a little bit too far…”

“Yes, they’re very excited, all right.”


“Mom. Excited? They’re out of their minds, out of control!”

“I think you’re right. Should we call ‘animal control’?”

“Mom. Don’t be clever.


Really. Mom. Do I ever act like that?”

“No. You are much too under control for that!”


“Thanks, Mom. You’re the best, too!”

Coming Through


“Coming through, Mom!”


“Can we go outside now, Mom? Are you too busy?”


“You’re so good to me, Mom! Here’s a Haiku poem for you, from me!”

*** Through the silver gate
inside the dog park off leash,

to romp with best friends ***
