Back in the game.

Ok, so I totally told my mom to sit her fat a*s down and start helping me blog and go visit some blogs because we have no idea what has been going on lately. And she totally listened to me and that's what we have been doing for like 2 hours or something.
And my mom is finally getting over the birthday phone call disappointment (thanks for all the nice stuff you guys said) and she is back on the horse looking, looking, looking for a better job.
Yesterday, we celebrated my mom's birthday and my grandpa's birthday and we had a party and my grandma made Mediterranean food and these tarts that had custard and cherries and were pretty much the best things ever. I got to eat some shrimp tails and pita and some grilled beef and stuff too.
And this is a picture my Auntie Kathryn took.

And this is a picture of me when I went to sleep in the cabinet because it was really late and they all kept blabbing and I should have been in bed but instead I was in a cabinet wearing a belly band.

Ike! That cabinet actually looks pretty good. All you need is a cushy pillow and blankie and you've got yourself and great spot. But what's a belly band?

Happy Birthday to everyone!

That cabinet looks like a good cave, you need to get her to trick it out for you.

Um, how come you have to wear a belly band?

Hey Ike,
Glad you're back! Cherry tarts, huh? I'm not usually one for sweets, I like salty meaty things, but those sound pretty darn good.

I like your bandana.

My mom said you look "so cute" sleeping in the cabinet.

Glad we're blog friends now :)

Happy Birthday to your mom and grandpa! I'm glad your mom is feeling better and is ready to try again on the job search.

Give her a few birthday licks for me, okay?

You are a very handsome young man, Mr. Ikes.

I hope your mom has much success on her job hunt.

Happy Birthday to your mom and Grandpa. Sorry about the belly band. Glad your mom put her butt down and helped you blog.

Hi, Ike!
Glad you family celebrated your Mom and Grandpa's Birthday! Yummy food!
You were wearing the belly band because they did not want you to win another Stains Award? Bo!
Kisses and hugs

That birthday food sound really good. You do look kind of tired-- but cute in your bandana. My mom always looks at those doggie diapers for Arrow-- can't take him anywhere.

Ike, I'm glad your Mom is helping you blog again--you're one of my fave dog-bloggers! And please tell her for me that it isn't her fault it's getting tough to find a decent job--this economy sucks! I even moved to improve my business and it didn't help, and now I have to get a couple of jobs, and they will probably suck. I'm so glad she has you and Odin to cheer her up when she gets home from that job she doesn't like so much. Hang in there!

Ike, what are you doing in the cabinet, little dude? Were you going to paint something?
