We miss Mickey - don't worry - he's fine!

Mickey used to come by and visit the Pointer Sisters fairly often. He came so often these past few months that we couldn't help but let him in the house now and then, espcially when the weather was wet or cold outside. He'd be hanging around our house or my neighbor's house and run to greet us when we came home. He's well mannered, quiet, loving and too well fed as he visited all the houses in the neighborhood. He wears a collar with his name on it and a phone number but we really didn't know exactly where he lived. I live in an area where our houses sit on acreage bound by the lake and park lands. We hadn't seen him around these past three weeks. My neighbor even worried about him.
This is Mickey taking over the Pointer Sister's beloved sofa which I can't throw out even though it is soooo old and tattered. It's the girls' favorite sofa and usually they sleep together kicking all the pillows off it. I guess Mickey thought it was pretty comfy too...


Here's Mickey trying out Stella's doggy bed - I think he's just a little too big for it...with him in it - you can't see the sides of the bed as it is crushed under him...
Well I tried that phone number that was engraved on his collar and the Mickey's mom answered the phone. We had a wonderful conversation about Mickey. He's fine. The hole in the fence Mickey used to use to escape from is mended. But she promises to bring him around one of the these days to visit the girls.
I'm thinking of giving this little painting to Mickey's mom. I know he's fine but the girls and I still miss him.

I think it's to bad they mended the fence! No more Micky stories. Nice painting Judy.

What a sweetheart, though I must say I worried about him being on the road unsupervised when he would come visit his Pointy Sister girlfriends...
xxxooo

Aw... to bad about the mended fence! What a terrific visitor Mickey is! I adore the painting you did of him! Maybe you should ask Mickey's mom for visitation rights...lol!

Great story and beautiful painting. Most definitely you need to share this painting with Mickey's mom, what a treasure this will be for their family.
