Sign! Sign! Everywhere a Sign!

I see lots of signs while we’re out walking. Rumpy could care less, of course, because he can’t read them. But I find them interesting. Here are a few of the signs we see while on our walks.

It’s All in a Day’s Walk

Walks with Rumpy are wondrous things. Walking out the front door leads to canine greetings from our neighbor dogs. Sometimes Rumpy sniffs the yard before heading toward the gate. Once we’re on our way, there are amazing things to experience. Some things only Rumpy could love, such as the smell of another dog’s pee on a utility … Continue reading

There’s a (Beware of Dog) Sign on the Wall…. But She Wants to be Sure….

This week I stopped by PetSmart and I saw this: It caught my eye, because usually dog warning signs look something like this: As I am wont to do, I began to think about the meaning of each sign, and the purpose of displaying either of them. I’ve never before posted signs where I lived, because … Continue reading

True Confession: Victim of Crime

So someone stole my lawn mower. It was the middle of the day. I was off work. I left home for a grocery run. When I got back, my mower was gone. I was pissed! I mean, it was just an inexpensive push mower, but still, it was MY mower and I needed it to … Continue reading

And We Have a New Vet!

It was time for Rumpy’s annual vaccinations, and I was scared.   I’ve talked about how uncomfortable I was with the vet that had been treating Bubba. I’d already decided they weren’t a good fit for the Rumpster.  I’d honestly thought of driving him to Dothan to see our old vet, but I knew that … Continue reading

I Can’t See the Forest for the Trees

Sometimes the truth is staring us in the face, and we still don’t see it. That’s how it is with me in regards to Bubba Cat. For the past two years, I’ve known Bubba has severe arthritis. My previous vet and I have worked together to manage his pain. He’s been on Adequan for a … Continue reading

Poetry By Cats, For Cats

This blog seems to have an unfair slant toward dogs. True, the blog is named after a dog, and dogs ARE more popular with humans than cats, but honestly, what self-respecting cat CARES what a human thinks? So to you cats out there who are faithful readers of this blog, even if only to take pot … Continue reading

Happy National Love Your Pet Day? WTF?

February 20th is Love Your Pet Day! I know, right? Like we need a day to remind us to love our companion animals? Well apparently SOMEONE thought you weren’t showing enough love to your pets, because Love Your Pet Day was set aside to, “remind pet owners to set aside time each day to appreciate and celebrate … Continue reading

Diary of a Dysfunctional Pet Family

I have a confession to make: We are a dysfunctional family. As the sole human in the mix, I have to accept full responsibility, though I really don’t want to. But what kind of goober would I be if I blamed it on the cat?   Let me explain. I wake up every morning to … Continue reading

And then there was one…
