Monday Mischief: Stringing Me Along

Charles, your Main Man, here: I had to go back to the Vet to check on the stitches that were supposed to dissolve when they took out my molar. My luck, there was one that was just hanging on. I hate to go to the vet. Though I don’t mind being with Mom, I really think that car rides are overrated. They tend to end up in places that I don’t want to be in.

The good news is that the Vet was able to pull that last stitch out and everything looks OK. But Mom says no really hard chew stuff for a while just in case. But, I really like that chew stuff.

Remember to have your human check your teeth regularly to make sure they are in good shape.

Wonderful Wednesday: Singing The Song Of My People

<Turn your sound on> In the morning, I feed the animals and then I go into my office. It never fails that almost every morning Queen Noel, who eats in her cat window in the kitchen, grabs one of her loveys and sings until I come back to the kitchen so she can present it to me. I assume it is her way of saying either, ‘thank you for the meal’ or ‘feed me more, servant!’.

The story behind the pink arm: I was throwing out a whole bunch of old dog toys a few weeks ago after Sofie passed, and there was this pink arm in the bottom of the toy bin. I put the broken and chewed up toys in the trash but the arm must have fallen on the kitchen floor only to be squirreled away by Noel. She appears to have added it to her pile of yellow birds and ‘puppy’ behind the plants in her window. Now it is one of her morning loveys. She is always so proud when she brings me her ‘kill.’

Monday Mischief: I Want It Now!

When Louise wants something she is not shy about it. As she got older she really started finding her voice. Now she yells at me all the time but in the sweetest, gentlest way. How can you not give this dog another cookie?

(Yes, that is the Canine Acanthomatous Ameloblastoma tumor that you see. She is doing OK right now with it.)

DogDaz Zoo: Mom’s Are …

Mom’s are for walking on.

Mom’s are pillows.

Moms are for hugs.

Moms are healers.

Wonderful Wednesday: Playful Nine & Sofie Memories

A memory that Peanut found of Nine, Sofie, and Louise. Nine and Sofie were probably about a year old and Lulu a year older than that. I guess it was around 2011 or 2012. Nine and Sofie used to play together a lot back then. Nine loved to play with the dogs. Photographic Memories are a wonderful thing to have. Photographs are a great way to look back and smile.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Monday Mischief: Charles Hits the Jackpot!

Charles here: One thing about living with older adult humans is that they can be forgetful. V was on the way from the kitchen (upstairs) to the garage (downstairs) with the recycling to put in the bin. But, on the way, something must have distracted V, because the kitchen recycling container was placed on the floor, on the way to the garage, and left there. LUCKY ME!!!!

I got to enjoy all the leftovers from the cat food and dog food containers and even some human foodstuff. But, drat! Mom came down the stairs and found me with my gold mine. She is such a party pooper!

Oh, I left V a cat food container on the bed as a Thank You gift.

Monday Mischief: Make Me Mosaic

I was doing my usual Facebook, Instagram, or Google surfing, which is all about dogs, cats, wildlife, birds, and sometimes clothes, and I came upon this awesome mosaic that someone did on their patio. I absolutely love it and I am sure they used Louise as their model.


  Paradise Paw Prints. com

Don’t you agree it is the perfect match? Now I just have to figure out how they did it. I want to surround the pool with all my animal faces. LOVE IT!

(Tiling advice is appreciated)

Wonderful Wednesday: Who’s Bed Is It?

Charles thinks he owns Mom’s bed.

But, we CATS will show him who really owns it.

(Well, we waited until he was asleep, but we really do own it!)

Monday Mischief: Play with Me!

Mini so wants Charles to play with her and be her buddy. He tolerates her but really doesn’t want much to do with it. She is persistent though. And one day he is going to engage, in a nice way.

DogDaz Zoo: RIP Sofie -11/25/10 to 3/18/22

 

It is with great sadness that I must tell you that Sofie Bear, my little Soda Pop, left this earthly plan on Friday, March 18, she was 11 years old. The pain is almost unbearable because she was my heart. We never expected to lose Nine, the cat, on March 10 to cancer and then lose Sofie ten days later. She had significant hip issues and could no longer get up the stairs or walk easily without pain. These issues only exacerbated her aggressive behavioral issues, where she was attacking Charles and the cats, and biting Louise in the neck and mouth.

Sofie was always my troubled furchild. She suffered from behavioral problems which started when she was about 2 or 3 years old. It has been so long that I can’t remember her without them. Her anxieties were off the charts most of the time. She had night terrors. She had noise and thunder anxiety. She had separation anxiety. She ate through 3 doors and the wall-to-wall carpet. She had to nibble on a lovey all the time and then protect it (resource guarding). Yet, I guess, I thought my love, commitment, training, and medication would help her. I had trainers, behaviorists, tons of vets, tons of meds, to the point she was taking 6 different medications and herbs at the end with every meal and in-between. I had several vets tell me that anyone else would have ‘put her down’ years ago. But, to me she was worth fighting for.

I know that she is out of pain now and not scared of anything. That is what I wanted for her. I hope she is chasing sheep in the meadow beyond the rainbow bridge waiting for me along the road with Nine and all the others. The back door picture above was taken on the day she left us. It looks to me like she was prepared to be out of pain and to be in a better place. The sun shine was perfect to show the warmth inside her when she could quiet for a moment or two.

I might not be able to blog for a while. This one-two punch has knocked me for a loop.

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep by Mary Elizabeth Frye

Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there.
I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there.
I did not die.
