The Joy of Slumber Parties - Pixel's Mischief Monday

Mommy has today off from work, so last night, she suggested that with all the stuff going on with worry over my uncle Happydog, who has been very ill, that maybe we should have a slumber party to cheer ourselves up. I thought that was a brilliant idea, so we pulled out my brown sleeping snuggle bag. I just LOVE my snuggle bags! This is my brown and cream one. Mommy got on snuggly britches (P.J.'s that are fuzzy & soft), she gathered some snacks for us, and some of my favorite toys. Sometimes you just need to play and do something nice like this, especially during stressful times.

 We had a little snack, then I jumped out of my bag because I just felt like exerting some playful energy. I grabbed two of my play toys Rudolf and Blue Dog, and started playing like a big dog! I often get so excited from playing that I have to roll on I did. Do you ever just love your toys, your playtime or your comfy bed so much that you just want to roll all over it? Well, I was sure feeling it. I even rolled all over Mommy...I certainly didn't want her to feel left out!
 After a hardy round of wrestling with my stuffed toy friends Rudolf and Blue Dog, and rolling on everything on our big bed, Mommy tucked me back into my snuggle bag. I was feeling super good now! We worked on some of the doggie posters that Mommy makes each week for the pets up for adoption at our local animal shelter. We talked with joy about how so many of them have found loving homes, like Thumper, formerly Mr. Schnauzer, who found his loving Daddy on my Facebook page after sharing his poster! All the success stories made me smile even bigger!
Slumber parties can really bring out the silly in you! At one point, Mommy was working on this one dog's photo and he sort of looked like a hound dog. I was asking Mommy for more treats, and so she joked that I'd have to "sing for my food" (or treats, as it were), so I immediately started belting out my best rendition of "You Ain't Nothin' but a Hound Dog"! I know she wasn't expecting THAT! I had her laughing big time! I think I'll take it on the road one day..."the Singing, Pet Blogging, Social Media 'Hound' Trick Dog Pixel Blue Eyes"...that name's not too long, now is it?
We stayed up until the wee hours of the morning, laughing, snuggling, working on posters, and talking about my dear sweet uncle Happydog. As midnight rolled past, I got super sleepy tired. I snuggled even deeper into my sleeping bag with heavy eyelids. Mommy and I prayed that Happydog would get better and want to eat again. We prayed that all our friends were resting in comfort and surrounded by loved ones, both two and four legged. And we pray that all the shelter dogs and cats we are trying to help, will find loving homes so they too, can have snuggle cuddles and lots of love!

As I drifted off into a sweet sleep, I began dreaming of a day when all dogs and cats have loving, wonderful homes. I dreamed of meeting all my friends in person one day. And after the loss of another beloved doggie friend earlier this week, I dreamed of seeing all my loved ones and friends who have passed on and are waiting at the bridge in heaven...I love you all my friends!
Slumber party aftermath...looks like Rudolf had one heck of a good time at my slumber party too!
