Blog Called on Account of Illness

Lucy sez:

“Momma can’t come to the blog right now — she’s sick as a dog. Though I don’t understand what a dog has to do with it.”



  1. I’m sorry to learn that you are ill and hope you’ll be feeling like a ‘Lucy’ in no time. Best wishes!!

  2. Margie from Maryland says:

    Hope you feel better soon!

  3. I thought it had been awhile since you had a blog post and I’m sorry to hear that you are feeling under the weather. Get lots of rest and I hope you are feeling better soon!

  6. Denise in Kent, WA says:

    I feared something foul was afoot when there was no blog post for two days. Take care of yourself & I hope you feel better soon!

  7. Lucy: You tell your Mama to get lots of rest and drink lots of fluids. Keep her cozy and warm and give her lots of Love. She’d do the same for you, I’m sure.

    A hot toddy, perhaps? It’s no fun being “sick as a dog,” so I hope you’ll be on the mend quickly.

  13. Tell your mommy I hope she feels better soon!

  14. Maria Katechis says:

    Feel better soon, Wendy! We miss you!!!

  15. I hope you feel better very soon, I know you are in good hands with Lucy by your side. Have you heard of a new movie called “Wendy & Lucy”? It stars Michelle Williams as Wendy and a Labrador Retriever mix as Lucy. I imagine your Lucy will not be impressed.

    I hope you’re better soon, Wendy. I know Lucy will take very good care of her Momma!

  38. My name’s Izzy. I’m sorry your momma is sick as a dog. When mine is sick as a dog, she stays in bed and Debit D Dog won’t let me near her. The bed is Debit’s space.

    (Izzy and Debit’s mom says get well soon.)

  39. Aww, feel better soon Wendy! Everyone I know seems to either be sick or getting over a cold.

  40. Get better! This is Cooki, btw. I don’t want to mess in Cookie’s territory, so I switched to my other alias since I got my new blog up.
    Alice, Coal, and Lucy (my kitten triplets) wish your mom gets much better and feels chipper in very little time!

    Thats what you should do Miss Lucy…go cuddle your mama and purr loud enough to rattle all the crappy gunk loose and make mama feel better πŸ™‚

  52. Lucy, commence the snuggling. That is bound to make you feel better. Do so very soon.

    CraftyGryphons last blog post..Yarn on Thursday – One!

  64. I hope u feel better real soon. We have the sickies too.

  65. Thank you for letting us know that you are still alive – it was very worrying not to see the posts for a couple of days. Hope you will feel better soon.

  66. I hope you feel better soon. Have you tried Vicks Vapor Rub at night? I use it for sinus and stuffy nose problems and it really helps me breathe at night so I can sleep, which definitely speeds the healing. Even better than chicken soup, although I’m just thinking that Lucy may not appreciate the smell!

  67. Thanks for the update, Lucy–hope your Momma feels better soon!

  68. Wendy,

    So sorry to hear you are ill! If you can manage to open one eye to watch TV, Sonny Corinthos on General Hospital is some fine eye candy that just might help you feel a bit better. Always works for me! : 0

    Hope you feel better soon!
