There you have it!   Shopping in my town – Mom has been doing a lot of shopping the past few days with company here but this morning Miss Michelle and Mr. Craig from MY THREE MOGGIES left for the airport to fly to NYC for a few days before heading back to Oscar, Archie and Henry – their three moggies – who no doubt miss them!   We will miss them too – I got to know them and was very brave and even let Miss Michelle carry me around!   I’ll share some videos she did of me after we receive them from them when they return home………..I know some of you have been after me FOREVER AND EVER to do a video…..we had no way to do it but Miss Michelle did some with her fancy phone while they were here.   WOOT!

Happy Friday – we’ll be back to regular blog schedule starting tomorrow………………….honest!

Hugs,

Sammy
