After My Dog Died…

It’s been two days since Buddy died. Wednesday I was in shock. My Fitbit notified me I walked 10,000 steps that day, and almost all of them were from walking around here not knowing what to do. Thursday was a fog. I worked my regular job and even delivered some groceries, mostly to keep myself … Continue reading

Requiem for the Goodest Dog

As I write this I’m sitting on the sofa. Normally Buddy would be lying beside me with his head touching my thigh. But Buddy died today. It’s crazy. We were just at the vet yesterday having a growth on his tail checked out. The vet who saw him said it was no big deal. Buddy … Continue reading

Buddy the Con Artist

Buddy has been trying to jump on the bed and sometimes falling. I bought some steps for him to use to climb up and down the bed, but he refuses to even try to use them. I thought it was because he didn’t know how and have been trying to teach him. It’s mostly been … Continue reading

Sunday Morning and My House Stinks!

Sunday morning walks with Buddy and Biddy Bit (my nickname for Princess Kitty) are my favorite. It’s usually quiet in our neighborhood in the early morning, but Sundays are even more so. There’s just a different feel to the air. It’s less energetic and more peaceful. This morning we heard geese overhead and watched them … Continue reading

Life with a Dog

Now that Buddy’s been here for a few weeks I remember all that I’ve missed by not having a dog in my life. Like always having a supply of poop bags in my pocket, and never assuming a trip outdoors won’t call for one. And keeping a ball cap handy for heading outdoors first thing … Continue reading

Yes, I’m on Another Rant…

Maybe it’s because I’ve been paying too much attention to the news. Or maybe it’s because I’m still steaming from getting the boot from my gig job. Or maybe it’s just because I feel what I’m seeing happening in this country is insane. Whatever it is, I’m absolutely livid. We locked down for weeks to … Continue reading

Welcome Home, Buddy!

This is Buddy. Buddy is around 10 years old and his snout is turning white. He has rough skin patches on his elbows from living much of his life confined in a crate. He has arthritis and skin irritations. He was receiving treatment for these issues in rescue and we’ve already had a visit with … Continue reading

New Beginnings

The new beginnings I’ve worked for haven’t exactly panned out the way I’d hoped. Continue reading

Middle-Age Dating is Fun!

My dating adventures just keep getting better and better, and by that I am being facetious. Continue reading

Why I Suck at Dating

I recently met a man for dinner. This is not a small thing; it’s the first recent date I’ve had. I thought it went well, but I thought wrong. I haven’t heard from him since. Social interactions, especially in dating situations, confuse and frustrate me. I used to think there was something seriously wrong until … Continue reading
