Spring/Summer hit the Mid-Atlantic big time this week. So the girls and I were down by the water a lot. The week started out with all this very terrible squirrel activity, and my little
murderers monsters sweet doggies were not aware of the havoc they reeked for their tired sensitive animal loving Mom. I find it interesting that we brought squirrel baby #2 to the park to find a safer nest and ever since then Sofie has refused to walk to the park with me. Maybe she does not want to bump into the baby she almost killed. (I am only just now thinking of that).
I haven’t been blogging about Sofie’s difficulties this week, but I have posted them on Facebook. Do you follow DOGDAZCATS2 on Facebook? It is nice to also have that avenue to actually have conversations with other pet lovers outside of just the comments in a daily blog post.

Sofie has refused to walk down the block to the park. She started this on Monday. She gets half way down the block and sits down (little stubborn Sheltie thing that she is) and wants to go home. It has gotten hotter and hotter each day, but I don’t think that is it because if it was that bad outside, I would not have gone for a walk. We even walked with Mojo (her buddy). But no go!
The interesting thing is she will take the similar distance walk in the other direction, to the river. Go figure? Is it the baby squirrel sending psychic messages to turn back?
I started her on 50 mg of Benadryl (antihistimine) just in case it is allergies (1 mg for every pound of dog the vet says).
I am sorry to report that my stupid state of Maryland was not able to agree on the bill that would have saved many Bully Breed and Bully-Mix owners from having to possibly give up their pets because of Breed Discrimination in the state. It was all because of one sentence that the Senate and House differed on. I am just appalled and ashamed at the things that lawmakers sometimes do.
My step-daughter lost her best friend’s 18-year-old brother on Wednesday in a car crash with 3 other boys. The cause – excessive speeding. Please remember that nothing is worth driving that fast for. Speed kills so many people, animals, and ruins lives forever. Talk to your kids, today! And talk to yourself too!
That’s it for the week. Thanks for playing along with us.
