A Message for Granny

The other morning, I phoned my mom as I often do. And, as phone conversations with my mother go, I usually say "Hi Mom!" and she's off and running. The next twenty minutes, I rarely do more than grunt until I say, "I have to go Mom." Since I have arm issues and back issues, I put Mom on speaker so I can get stuff done. I was dashing about trying to get breakfast for me and Mabel Lou.
I had the Mom phone in one hand and Mabel's kibble in the other when I lost my balance coming in the back door and dropped the phone right in front of Mabel's bed. Mabel looked at the phone, puzzled at first. Then she gingerly belly crawled over to it, listening intently. She reached down and kissed the earpiece where her Granny's voice was coming from...twice.

Sigh.... I LOVE MY DOG!

Linda, Yes, Mabel is her baby!

Janet, Of course!

Mango, The first rotten we had in the family would literally run to the phone when it rang...certain it was for her. My mom would have to interrupt callers to tell the dog..."No dear, it's not for you."

After close friends figured it out, they would all offer to talk to the dog on the phone and all were rewarded with whines and kisses!
