Hi, everyone -
Spring has finally come to our part of New England. It has been really chilly but now the daffodils are in full bloom. We also have a cactus that is indoors that has a lot of blooms on it. Mama counted about 15 of them yesterday. The color is a lighter shade of red but the blooms are really long.
This is the main reason why we have been behind in blogging. Jessy was here for over two weeks this time. Her pawrents went to Germany because Mama's nephew is doing an internship through college there. Then they finished their trip in Florida driving up in the car that belongs to my "uncle's" parents. This is Mama's brother-in-law. Jessy went back home on Sunday.
For the most part, Jessy was really good. She and I (Hershey) had a ton of fun playing tug of war - in fact one of the rope toys is now four smaller rope toys using the strings of the original toy. Jessy figured out a way to completely undo the knots at both ends of the toy. She is pretty creative when it comes to destroying toys. She loved sleeping with Mama and would go in the cage when she was exhausted. Mama did some testing to see how long it would take her to find hidden treats. Depending on the trick it took Jessy a little over a minute to get the treats and eat them. Mama also did a trick using a mirror on us - just to see what we would do. The first time we ran away from it but the more she tried the trick the more we got used to seeing the mirror.
The not so good things that Jessy did was she took off (the first time was an hour) with Mama on her heels the whole time. Just when Mama thought to get Hershey to bring Jessy home she found Jessy on the back steps waiting to go into the house. Mama was pretty angry because I did help a little bit letting Jessy go out on her jaunt. The second time took fifteen minutes. Mama was able to get her home on the leash with the help of a neighbor that time.
We are sorry this post is so lengthy. But Jessy had a way of occupying a lot of Mama's time plus she was taking care of me too. And of course other things got in the way - such as life and Easter Sunday.

P.S. Papa gave Mama her Easter card today. He left it in the car and totally forgot. We hope everyone had a Happy and Blessed Easter!
