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.’

1.25.13 Follow Up Friday: Lovies and other things

Well, it is that time of week to look back so that we can look forward.  

Mom! Louise has all the toys and she isn't sharing.

Mom! Louise has all the toys and she isn’t sharing.

People were very taken with the wonderful angels, Gertrude and Squash, who were present on the blog last weekend.  I appreciate the nice comments, we all have our fur angels and sometimes we need them to visit more than others.  I am blessed to have a whole zoo of angels that all come visit from time to time.  

The dogs were so bored after their Monday Mischief that I had to break out a new Bo-Bo.  All those toys and they can’t find anything to do.  Amazingly (and I really should not say anything or I will jinx it), the new Bo-Bo still lives!!!  But let us see what destuffing goes on tomorrow.  

We really appreciated the response to Meet Mini Beaver.   It was great to find out that Sofie is not alone in her attachment to a Lovey.  Droppie, of AngelWhisper has a squeaky duck; Misaki has a squirrel; Doggy has his blanket, and; the humans at Animal Couriers make sure that when their dogs have a Lovey they go buy lots of extras.  Cupcake on the other hand, like Louise, is fickle and will play with anything (or not).  

Knee Update:  The bad news is, as expected, I tore the Menisus in the left knee.  But the good news is: not planning surgery immediately (I do hope that is good – right?) Since I already have trouble with the knees we are going to take the most conservative approach.  The doctor shot the knee with drugs and I am going to go to Physical Therapy to try and get the muscles stronger.  He said 50% of people are not bothered by the pain of a tear after about 12 weeks (that seems like a long time). We are hoping that it will stop hurting even though it will never go away.  When I asked him if I would every be able to knell again, he was a little hesitant to say anything other than, “you may have limitations.”  Wish me luck, folks.  All I want to do is get back to my walk every day with the dogs.  We are all going crazy!  Maybe next month.
