Piss and Vinegar

Mom says I must be feeling a bit better because my levels of "piss and vinegar" are rising, whatever that means! I guess she didn't appreciate the barking at the neighbor during her precious nap.  But besides this piss and vinegar business, the big news around here is THAT I'M WALKING a few steps at a time.  YAY!  Hopefully I've pulled it together fast enough to avoid going to the special clinic.

So, I looked up this piss and vinegar, and found an entry at Thesaurus.com:

Main Entry:
full of beans
Part of Speech:adjective
Definition:healthy and energetic
Synonyms:bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, full of ginger, fullof pep, full of piss and vinegar, full of vitality,peppyvivaciouszingy

Huh, I'll take it, even though I know she said it with a touch of annoyance; my barking drives her batty sometimes.  But she is thrilled that I am getting better. barking and all! Woohoo.

How could anyone ever get annoyed with me? ;)

p.s. Mom went out with our friend, Joe, for burritos and now SHE is full of beans!


  1. Glad you are feeling better, Miss Lu!

  2. Thanks, Judith! Maybe once I'm all healed up, you, my mom, Lyle and I can go for an outing! xo
