The Latest on Rumpy

Rumpy continues to amaze me with his recovery.   Don’t get me wrong, he’s not well. Right now he’s lying at my feet panting. His breathing is no longer labored, but it’s still heavy. Last week I was begging him to eat anything. This morning he ate his regular dry food mixed with canned! Last week … Continue reading

An Update on the Rumpster

We’re three days out from our vet visit. Rumpy is feeling much better but, to be clear, he is still very sick. We’ve just come in from a walk outside in the yard. We went from front to back, he took a poop, and now he’s exhausted and lying on the bedroom floor. Rumpy is … Continue reading

Rump’s Visit to the Vet

So Rumpy’s condition quickly got worse, and today we went to see the vet. First, she felt him all over and was very concerned about what felt like enlarged lymph nodes. The good doctor aspirated 3 of them and was heartened to find they were lypomas. She discovered his right hind leg was much larger … Continue reading

My Fears for my Dog…

Rumpy’s health is on the decline. His breathing is more labored. He doesn’t eat as much as he used to. He doesn’t have the stamina he once did. I’m afraid he may not be with me much longer. He is an older dog and, well, none of us live forever. But why now? Maybe I’m … Continue reading

My Dog

Much is changing with our new president making sure he returns us to 1950s America. But there is one who is not affected by it all. My dog. Rumpy still lies at the foot of my bed each night, and at my feet whenever I’m home. Rumpy still walks the perimeter of our yard each … Continue reading

Scenes from Rumpy’s Gotcha Day

My sweet dog celebrated his Gotcha Day Thursday in true Rumpydog style. I got up that morning and my internet service was down. So no blog post. Then yesterday was the big hack, so nobody was doing much of anything online. That’s OK though, we’re all here now and there are pictures!   Let the … Continue reading

Tomorrow is Rumpy’s Gotcha Day!

It’s Rumpy’s tale of rescuing me. Here is a post from his first online Gotcha Day celebration. Here’s a post from … Continue reading

Numbness to the Plight of Dogs

So each year when the Yulin Dog Meat Festival takes place, lots of dog-loving people around the world throw a hissy fit. They post horrible things about the Chinese on social media sites. They sign petitions calling for an end to this barbaric practice. They send money to groups who purport to save dogs from slaughter. … Continue reading

Idiots and Fireworks: A Love Story

And so it begins.  Sunday afternoon someone in this neighborhood shot off firecrackers. One. At. A. Time. All. After. Noon. Long. It was VERY annoying, but it was hot so I stayed inside and cranked up the radio. July 4th should be interesting this year. There are lots of dogs in this neighborhood living outside … Continue reading

Adventures Await Us!

When Rumpy and I walk, there are places he likes to go to check the latest pee-mails. But he also likes to check on his peeps of all species. He has to walk up the alley behind our house to make sure all the surveyors came to work. They stand around outside before heading out for … Continue reading
