OMGOSH! I went outside and I see the black flash of my husband’s Shepherd running. Oh great. This dog, Raven, is beautiful, smart, a Master Escape Artist from a large Privacy fence. She turns on the outside faucet even though she gets fresh iced water and she has a pool and she has every toy known to man. She destroys them. So, anyway, I finally wrangle her (he, the hubby, is gone of course) into letting me get the leash on her but then she wrangles out of the collar. I finally get THAT back on and I am trying to pull a huge dog in so I can get her into the back. Needless to say. she had torn another portion of the fence out. And to say the least, my back hurts, I tore the tips off of two of my fingernails and she is fine now. I am ready to fall into bed. She is a true, smart escape artist who is like the Velociraptor in Jurassic Park. lol
I wrote recently about the loss of my beloved little Buddy, the Pomeranian/Papillion mix. After 14 years his heart just finally gave out. It had been enlarged on one part for a bit. So, walking in the early morning, I saw him. Lucifer the Chihuahua. At first we stared off but I guess he sensed my sadness. So, instead of charging at me, he turned with his mom and looked back once before trying to kill a blade of grass and a dried up leaf. I just stood there for a moment. I realized even little old Lucifer can have compassion. even if just for a moment.
Tonight I am sitting by my little dog Buddy and praying he will be okay. It is raining hard outside tonight and the tears are falling as I watch him. He is right at 15 years old. we found out a few months ago he had a part of his heart that is enlarged and causes seizures. he had four today. They said no operating because of his age and that he would not live through it. This little guy was there when my daughter died. he would just sit beside me as I cried so many times and never move. He has been with me at my loneliest. He has been my steady, helpful friend my loyal little Buddy. He has helped me through nights of anxiety or panic so bad that I would hold him crying just to get through. So tonight, I am sitting with him. I am going to be his friend so he isn’t alone as we fight through these seizures. I will be his comfort, I will pet him so he isn’t scared. Tonight my sweet Buddy, I am here for you. As it rains from the sky, so it does from my heart. I love you.
So, I finally got to go see my mom and I decided to stay the night with her. Inside, she has three small dogs (all conned into taking by the grandchildren) and they are like rulers of a Kingdom. They do what they want, when they want and how they want. That includes sleeping. I went to bed and her they come. Jumping up with me on my bed except for the 2 pound one who spend s the whole night jumping down only to cry five minutes later for me to put her back up. WOW! Needless to say, I got about two hours of sleep. Yes, they are loved and this is their Kingdom and I must say, they rule it well. hahahaha.
I know dogs like odd things and my little Buddy does but when we realized he goes crazy over shrimp. I was like wow!! He likes it all. I feel like he is Bubba Gump. He likes fried shrimp, boiled shrimp, steamed shrimp, and well, any shrimp. This little guy has some weird things he likes but I just was stunned on this one. On the other end, our cat. Scout, hates them. So the dog loves shrimp. the cat loves Ham. Goes to show you can never tell what an animal will like. Because this puzzle is opposite to me. lol.
I had to go out today and work some in the yard. It didn’t last long because the heat was intense I was getting burnt within 30 minutes. But I DID see Lucifer. His mom was walking him. It was so hot that even Lucifer only chased after a flying dragonfly or something flying and then tried to take down a pebble. But, he just didn’t have his usual fiery self going. I yelled out to the neighbor to see if he was okay and he looked up and then starting going back to their home. She assured me he just doesn’t do heat very well. What? Something that gets to little Lucifer? lol. Well, at least I saw him. It has been a while. But we both took our over heated selves in and he is probably terrifying ice cubes in his house. He likes those she said. lol. Have a great night/day fellow bloggers!
It has been beautiful out today even if it felt like a 110 degrees. I got some yard work done and came in to get some cold iced tea. I drank some and then went back out where I saw my female Shepherd, Raven, had escaped. Good thing she didn’t connect with lucifer, the neighbors dog. Anyways, this is one smart dog. She had decided to escape by digging a hole and the biting on the privacy fence until she could use the broken wood to snap the other piece (wooden by the way).
Did I mention I had to shut off the water to the outside faucet because she can turn it on by herself? She always finds a way like that Velociraptor on Jurassic Park. She has found every possible way to escape just so she can prove a point I guess because she never leaves the yard. I guess she just wants to see if she can escape. lol. Yes, we spend tons of time with her and our larger Shep Nitro. But wow. There is nothing this dog cannot figure out! So, after playing tag around the yard for an hour, she quit and went back into the backyard. I am sweating, out of breath and exhausted. She is happy, chasing a ball and getting yelled at by Nitro when she misbehaves. hahahahah. Have a great day/night fellow bloggers!
Sweet Charlie whom we miss.
As I had mentioned in the blog I just posted I had been away a couple of days so I wanted to go for a walk and get some calm in. Just to be clear, I use my WordPress on a desktop, not my phone so I write when I am here. 🙂 Anyway, I went and was about a half of a block when I spot him. Lucifer. The Chihuahua from Hades. He spots me. His owner smiles. I smile. Lucifer and I make eye contact and it is on. hahahaha. He is straining on his leash trying to get at me. I guess he has missed me and the squirrels must have been boring or the birds or the trees or whatever. All of it is a reason for him to attack. But, this time his owner was able to contain him on a new leash as he spiraled to me in a full run, teeth bared and all. Thank you for the welcome home. hahahahah. Needless to say. I will just stick to Yoga and such today. 🙂
There is probably nothing is my house that has not been cleaned, Clorox wiped, (except me) re-arranged, decluttered, planted, washed or otherwise been done. So now I think I will go to my neighbors and offer to do any outside weeding, cleaning you know, whatever. But I can’t really because they have been as busy as me. On the up of the uppest side, with Yoga, work, exercise, Prayer, meditation, Yai Chi, watching what I eat I can NOW outrung the neighborhood Chihuahua, Lucifer. You knw, the one who terrorizes us and chases anything that moves including tiny pebbles blown by the wind. Even the leaves try to fall away from his direction. NOW though I can outrun the little 3 to 4 pound beast when he breaks off of his leash as he often does. Things may not be normal right now but I am having a good time with that little dog. He is quite ill with me right now actually. hahahahahaha. Hugs to all!
