Today is Follow-up Friday hosted by Jodi from Heart Like A Dog. This is where we review the week behind so that we can launch into the week ahead (or something like that). Has it really been a week already. I am losing track of time. Last weekend I was feeling nostalgic and Caturday was honoring The Muffin Man. He is very missed around here. Muffy was one of those cats that owned your heart. He was smart, and funny, and fearless. Orange Toms are just special. They have their own way about them.
Then on Sunday we visited Squash E Bear in black & white. There are so many incredible memories with Squash. K8 said he saved our family and he did. When he came into our lives, the adults were unraveling and the kids were a hot mess. He calmed us and brought us all together so that we passed through that time and become stronger. Somehow he healed us. On Mischief Monday the crazy dogs went chasing the ducks and the geese. Sofie almost ate them. Those were ducklings under the dock, but it was a different goose family swimming by on the other side. It is very busy with new life down by the river.
On our usual Tuesday’s Tails, we featured an iguana and a hamster at the local animal control. I used to think that the dog pound (why did they call it that?) was just dogs and cats. Not ours. I do hope that critters get adopted too. Wordless Wednesday showed the pups getting their nails clipped at PetSmart. That was the first (and also last) time that I will take them there (usually my groomer does it or the vet). When we got home I found blood all over the deck and the kitchen floor because Louise’s back black nail was cut to the quick. It finally stopped but only after I put a white sock on her to keep her from getting blood everywhere. The whole reason I took her was because I am afraid of cutting the black nails myself. She is fine but it freaked me out. Accidents happen, but I might as well do it myself. And yesterday, on Thankful Thursday, I told you how thankful I am for all I have and for my wonderful pets. Though I got laid off last week, I know that with the support of my family, both human and fur, the world will find it’s balance and all things will be as they should – just different. (How nice it would be if pet blogging could be my new full time gig!)
That’s it for the week. Thanks for playing along with us. Check out the hop below and you can go play with others.
Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

Thanks so much for joining the hop! You did have quite a week, didn’t you? OMG I think I would have flipped about the nail. Sampson’s nails are light but for some reason I hit the quick on one of his back toes so I take him to my trainer who is super good with him.
Sorry to hear that you got laid off, but you now have more time for blogging and who knows, maybe you could make it a full time gig. 🙂

Wish I could have gone to BlogPaws to learn more about that. It would be fun.

Thanks Easy – I see Samantha in the paper but not Easy Money so maybe he is adopted. 🙂
