My mum and dad were supposed to be visiting us in Florida this month.They live in England.
Because of my dad's heart attack they are unable to come and my mum is very down about it. My dad too of course.
My dad has always loved the birthday cards I send him as I strive to find the funniest card I can.
So, I have been sending frequent funny get well cards.
This is what I did last week - I took a photo of Maddy sitting all four paws stretched out on the sun lounge, just basking in the sun.
I then sent it to my parents with a note. It said
"Hello. This is Maddy. As you can see, I am keeping your lounge chair warm for you! Next year we will have to fight for it! Love, Maddy"
(The British people on the board will appreciate this even more, because in european resorts there are never enough lounges at resorts and fights can often break out over them with people "reserving" them with towels etc)
My parents were laughing so hard at the picture!

Here are the lounge pics. I think it's a great idea to post some pics and ask for quotes. Pam

Pam those pictures are beautiful. Maddy is incredible, she truly looks like she is posing for you. She looks like one of those swimsuit models posing at a resort. You've got a budding actress on your hands.

I think that's a great idea to cheer your parents.

Maddy is a real beauty queen - she looks like she owns that lounge chair.

I have a quote for the second pic and only Brits will get it....

As Maddy waits for you to bring her a towel, she says..... 'Ich cann sprechen in Deutch und der bett ist MEIN' :lol: :lol: :lol:

For all non Brits, it seems that when some (not all) British people go on hols in Europe (Spain in particular) they spend most of the night 'larging it' or drinking and being stupid and therefore rise quite late in the mornings.

Our German cousins are not renowned for being big drinkers and so go to bed at a decent hour. Therefore they also rise early and they then go out to the pool and lay out their towels on the loungers to reserve them :lol: :lol: :lol:

Of course, the hungover Brits get a bit pissy about this and it's like WWIII around the pool :roll: :roll: :roll:

:lol: That's funny Donna! :lol:

:lol: OMG, Maddy is so tiny, she could easily share the lounger with an average sized person!! 8) :lol:

Okay, I have a new photo to send to my dad. I was thinking of the motto saying
"I am ready for the english rain"
or
"I'm getting dressed to visit you in England".

What do you guys think?

Maddy looks so cute in that raincoat. My vote is for: "I am ready for the english rain"

OR, we used to have a little song on an ad for childrem

"wear a yellow raincoat when your out in the wet,
wear a yellow raincoat the best protection yet"

She is quite the stunning puppy! I think she looks like she enjoys Florida more than England if you were to judge solely on her face in the pictures!

Definitely "I'm getting dressed to visit you in England" after all the rain and flooding we've had here lately she'll need wellies as well :lol: :lol: :lol:

Perfect picture! Wasn't there a song "Can't Stop the Rain"? Maybe you could use some of the lyrics from that.
