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

I Can Really Go After Shit…

I’ve been tweaking my resume, and there’s a skill I possess that I’m not quite sure how to address. I’m good at dealing with shit.  I can scoop it, shovel it, pick it up outside, pick it up inside, remove and replace the diaper within which it resides, regularly clean the receptacles that receive it, clean practically … Continue reading

No, We will NOT be Quiet! We Shall be Heard.

There is much turmoil within our country these days, and it seems lately the solution for those on top, as well as those who fear uncertainty, is to shhhhh!!!! us.  On this weekend where we honor the life and service of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a leader of one of the largest protest movements … Continue reading

Dinner for One

Last night I cooked dinner for myself. For some, cooking is a necessity. If they don’t cook, the family does not eat. For others, it’s a thing they do because they always have, or somebody has to do it and they do a pretty darn good job of it. In this age of fast food, … Continue reading

A Cat Concoction Video Follow-Up

So today we tried the Cat Concoctions lamb with clam sauce. You can see for yourself how it went. ​This video review was filmed 7 hours after breakfast. Keep in mind they are cats, the original Drama Queens. And my cats make the Kardashians look like Sunday School teachers! 🙄🙄🙄

Friskies Cat Concoctions? RU Crazy?

Let me start by saying I was NOT compensated in any way for this blog post… unless you count the free can of cat food that I found inside a container of cat litter. And finding that free can was the only reason I even tried this new Friskies canned food. I mean, chicken in … Continue reading
