Pink guy blues

My Mom is working from home again and I am happy but she is NOT happy about the reason she is working at home! The other morning she woke up and looked like THIS:


Her eye was all glued shut and her pillow had a wet spot on it where her eye was.


um, NOPE NOT LICKING MY PAWS IN HERE MOM I PROMISE!!! (I tend to lick GIANT wet spots on the bed when I lick my paws so Mom is always bugging me about it) I am just working on some blog junk, clearly not licking!

Anyway, so Mom's eye was all stuck shut so she went to the doctor and the doctor told her she had a pink guy?! I asked her what in the heck she was talking about and she said, it is also called ConjunctionJunctionItis! What in the world is THAT?!

(Note from Mom: It is conjunctivitis which is also known as pink eye.)

So Mom is at home and apparently she can give this pink guy to us too so she has to wash her hands a gazillion times a day and she has to be extra careful around us and Dad! She should be less contagious in a day or so. In the meantime I am going to take a nibble at these keys that Tanner never lets me touch. He is feeling better but is still tired!


Don't worry dogs, you can't get conjucticatervitis through the internets, I PROMISE!

Hey mom of Joe and Tanner, that's a total bummer. Never trust a guy in pink. Well really, never trust anyone in pink. Unless it's pink camo and it's a BT wearing it, of course. ha ha!

Joe, didn't you boys have some sort of magic cure for the pink guy? Maybe you need to put your mom in Tanner's little house so that she can't give the pink guy to you too.

Oh Jeez, what a bummer to have conjucntionjunction in your eye! Take good care of your mom, though maybe she should always stay home from work so she doesn't get a pink guy again? Is your dad jealous of the pink guy? Yeah, she definitely should just work at home. My mom, too, in case the pink guy comes here.

Ha! My girl was jealous at first - she would be happy with a pink guy - blue guy - orange guy - just about any guy. Then she found out that it was an infection and decided to let your mom keep it to herself. Hope she gets better soon.

Uh Oh...didn't your Mom & Dad just get engaged? And now she's hanging out with Pink Guy??? No wonder she's trying to steer clear of your Dad and keeps washing the Pink Guy smell off her hands!

PG better hit the pavement!

Teka likes pink too, but does not want the pink guy. Tell your mom to be careful about bright lights and stuff. In fact, maybe she should just have you do all the computer stuff for a while.

A pink guy? Wow! That sounds creepy.. You guys better take good care of her (and we think biting the pink guys leg is a good idea, maybe he'll dissappear faster that way!)

Oh-Woo,
We hope yur mom gets rid of that pink guy & feels a whole lot better soon. Bring her a bottle of hand cream so she can use after she keeps washing her hands. That would make her feel a little better. Having 'lobster red' hands plus 'pink guy' would be just awful.

That pink guy is a real pain in the bum! What kind of guy wears pink, anyway? I wouldn't be caught dead in pink.. but, I am not sure I can see pink. Anyway, I digress.... I hope your mom gives the pink guy a kick out the door soon. He doesn't sound like he's too much fun.

Tell your mom I hope she feels better, pink is not a flattering color for the eyeballs

I leave wet paw lick prints on the bed too. Hope your mom's eye opens up again! Everyone will think she is winking at them.

Oh, Joey! Who IS this guy, and why is he wearing PINK? Is he just late for Ike & Martha's wedding?

Tell your mama I'm sending healing goober smooches so she can shoo that pink guy away faster.

Be careful or he might come after YOU!

Goober love,
Stanley
