More on Mean old Ike

That's what Mom calls him. Actually I didn't think he was that bad.

I mean, when else am I gonna go to a hotel, sleep in the same bed as my parents, go for 10 walks a day and have mom at home with me all day long?? SWEET!

Here's us getting ready to go to sleep. Notice how shaggy Paris is getting!

The only stressful time though was when mom and dad came back from dinner and showed me this picture on the cell phone and said "Look what Hurricane Ike blew in -- It's Macky's brand new baby sister!" Man I was sweating bullets:

I mean 2 sisters is way too many - what in the Sam Hill am I gonna do with THREE!!!!

Well, mom kept on and on about the puppy and finally she fessed up -- her and dad went to a pet store and mom just HAD to hold the baby BT. That's all - holding - not BUYING! So no new sister for Mack. Thank dogness!!

Here are some pics of our backyard after Dad did some cleanup - You can see we still have beaucoups of limbs everywhere:

We want to THANK EVERYBODY for their prayers and well wishes. You guys ROCK!

Considering how destroyed Galvaston got, we are glad you are safe and sound. Incredible how those tree limbs just look like they were snapped like twigs.


Patience-please said...

Glad you are ok. We just got our Ike tree cleared out today. The tree choppers were really cool stinky sweaty guys. They loved us!Now we got to see bout getting the squished AC unit fixed.
Pet stores which sell puppies give us the giant heebee geebees. And hives. And they make our servant's face leak like crazy.

Amber-Mae said...

Oh, for a moment I thought your Mom actually got a new sista for you Mackie boy! But I think you would just have a heart attack having one right? Well, luckily she just held the little thing...

BenTheRotti said...

How could you not want that sweet bundle of BT goodness.. Can you parcel her up to go and send her here please? We can't find one here for love or money!! Mum would have taken that sweet girl in a heartbeat! I guess since you already have two sisters though that it would have been a bit much for you.. all the more reason to ship her to me.
Failing that you can always ship Paris over, I'm sure I could make room in my bed for her!

eeek Ike killed your trees!! did you get any Macky size sticks to play with?

So glad you are all safe and well, and its real good to have you back!

Aaack! Not another little sister! Thank Dog she was just joking, because having 3 sisters can make you psychotic.

Islay said...

Your Ike stories are bringing back memories of Wilma. Essex kept Dog Dad sane for over a month. Walking her was the only thing that felt normal.

Noah the Airedale said...

Thank goodness your house wasn't damaged and your all safe. I guess it could have been much much worse.
Hey your mum & dad fooled ya with the puppy. Hope the little BT goes to a good home.

You are so lucky that you were not under those trees. We are all glad that you are doing OK even if you have to stay at a motel.

Charlie Daniels said...

I've never stayed at a motel ... is it fun! ;-)

Is your place cleaned up yet?



Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Mack,
That was a close shave!! I am not as lucky though.. I got stuck with a new 'baby' sister who is now already bigger than I am.. :(
Glad that you guys are ok..

BenTheRotti said...

Hi Mack,

Sorry couldn't find your peemail

with regard to the paypal question.
$10 = £5.384 (roughly)
so say for example you want to donate $10 then you would input £5 and that should be about right.. its roughly £1.80 to your $1

PeeS.. we saw a Paris lookalikey at the park this morning! On closer inspection she wasn't as pretty so I knew it wasn't THE Paris!.. I did get excited for a second though!

Clover said...

Hi Mack!!
Sounds like a scary time with mean old Ike around - so glad you and your family are safe and that you had a nice hotel stay!
That little baby BT is adorable!!!!! Mom is squeeing right now...
Love Clover xo

Dexter said...

Camping out in the hotel looks a little crowded. But I guess roughing it for a few days can be fun.

Glad your house was spared, but those poor trees.

Louie has really long legs. Mom says he is a teenager. All legs and teeth..
