House of Muppets

Dare I say it, so far Klaus is having a good day today. He is on a lot less medication than before, and he has opened his eyes a few times. I'm only sitting a few feet away from him, so whenever he does that I throw down the laptop and run over to try to force my head into his field of vision. I think I was able to accomplish this once after much upper body gymnastics.

If you recall, I mentioned that Bogart has started waiting for Klaus and I to come home by poking his head through the front curtains. Now with accompanying video goodness:

The first thing I thought when I saw Bogart doing this today (in the middle of a rain storm of course), was that it looked like muppets were protecting my house. Almost like the way those portable puppet shows are. First the head looking in your general direction, then the shaking of the ears, then looking again, and more shake and shimmy, then eyes fixed on his target as though the hand up his butt has suddenly stopped moving. And... then we're off.

So glad to hear Klaus is having a good day, we hope even better days are just around the bend.

Bogart is so cute waiting for his Mom & Dad to come home. We hope he doesn't have to wait much longer.

We hope Klaus will have a better day tomorrow.

Our Buddy is such a wimp he can't even wait for Jan to leave to have his head in the window waiting for her to come home.

Come on Klaus, keep getting better. And keep on opening those eyes - you've got a lovely wife to look at.

OMG, we are so happy to read that Klaus is having a better day! We're cranking up the AireZen!
Do you always shake your head like that when you bark, Bogie- kind of like your loud barking hurts your own ears? Mitch does that too!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

it's so cute when Bogart pokes his head between the curtains. are you making nose prints on the window too, kiddo?

Glad to hear that Klaus is on less medication and that he got to see your face a few times today! That is a good sign.

That video of Bogart reminds my girl of me whenever she comes home. If it's late at night, I look like a giant fuzzy spectre in the window. Sometimes there is a tiny fuzzy spectre right beside me. It always cracks her up. And, if there's a third pointy-eared spectre next to the two fuzzy ones (Merv), then she's really howling with belly laughter by the time she walks in the door!

Thanks for keeping us posted. BTW, what did you eat today? Hmmm?

Goober love & smooches,

Miss Lulu!
I do the same thing at our house! Mama is always smiling when she walks up and sees my big head staring out the window! That was so sweet of Mitch, Maggie, and Putter! My mom works at our Children's Hospital, and said that the nurses she works with would flip for flowers!! They are beautiful! We are happy to hear that Bogart's daddy is opening his eyes and is needing less medicine!! You are always in our prayers!!
We love you!
Janie and her mama, Hollie

We're so happy that Klaus was having a better day today! Each bit of improvement is a wonderful thing!! And who wouldn't be improving with all the wonderful care (thairepy, music and lots of love)he's been getting. I hope the good days continue!!

Bogart is just too cute in the window. There is nothing like the utter love of a dog waiting for its master to come home. Isn't it true that for some reason Airedales look like muppets. Don't know what it is. Hugs & licks to you all!

With love,
Kirstin & Kirby

Dino and Family said...

Oh My! Bogart, you are just too adorable, I bet daddy can't wait to see you too! Love, Dino

Your handsome face at the window must bring a huge smile to your Mum's face each time she returns home. You are wonderful therapy for her too.

Poor Bogart. He must be missing you and his daddy a lot. I am sure it will be soon when his daddy can finally be home again.

I am glad to read that Bogart's daddy is doing better.
