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

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

So How Was Your Holiday?

We had a wonderful Christmas. Thank you for helping to make it special with your cards, your gifts, and your warm wishes. Rumpy is happy he got a dinosaur chew toy and doggy cheese! The kitties got a new climbing tower and are impatiently awaiting me to put it together for them. Who knew Santa … Continue reading

Rumpy’s Letter to Santa

Dear Santa, I have been a good dog. For the most part. There is still that issue with my scarfing down cat food every chance I get. And I do like the occasional rummage through the trash. Oh, and there is that time I left skid marks on Jen’s freshly-laundered bedding. Hardly worth mentioning, I … Continue reading

Cats as Teachers and Healers

It’s cold here, and the cats all want to cuddle.  Unfortunately, that means cuddling with me. I have sciatica and arthritis in my hips and knees. When I lie down for the night I spend a bit of time tossing and turning until I get comfortable. I also have to fight cats to be able … 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

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
