so, mom wanted to take rip to the doctor today cause she thought rip was coughing a little bit more....i couldn't tell...but we went to this nice doctor right near the house. i went too since dad wanted to go and i didn't want to stay home alone (even though that probably would have been lots of fun). anyway, rip had some pictures taken of her chest...doctor said she was looking at rips heart and lungs...and she said that rip had some bronchitis...so anyway...mom is giving rip some pills. mom had to go out after we got home and she brought us some new toys...they are great fun. when dad went out later, we asked mom to take us for a walk...she did even though she was watching a movie. What a great day!!!!
