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

The Underdogs: I Highly Recommend It

HarperCollins sent me an advance copy of Melissa Fay Green’s latest book, The Underdogs. It was a surprise because I hadn’t requested it. But what a wonderful treat! I’ve read Ms. Greene’s Praying for Sheetrock and enjoyed it, as much as one can enjoy a book about racial bias in the modern south. Her latest book … Continue reading

Laryngeal Paralysis: Does My Dog Have It?

Does my dog have laryngeal paralysis?  Rumpy breathes heavily, especially when he sleeps. He also becomes tired more quickly when he walks. Sometimes when he’s excited he gags. And a few times while walking he’s seemingly tripped over something but nothing was there. The vet first mentioned it last year but passed it off as a normal part … Continue reading

Message to Michael

I often talk of the things Rumpy and I see while on our walks. Today we saw this: There’s no similar sign posted anywhere else that I’ve seen. This is the only one. So who is Michael, and why does he need our prayers? I first thought of this song recorded by Dionne Warwick: But … Continue reading

Yes, My Dog is Stubborn

OK, Rumpy time for a walk! He’s so excited! So on goes the harness and leash. Poop bags? Check. Cookies in my pocket? Check. Keys, phone, glasses? Check. Check. And Check. We’re out the door, door checked that it’s locked. Down the steps. Rumpy pees and…… He wants to go back inside. I beg. I … Continue reading

An Ordinary Walk With my Dog

Now that the days are longer- and warmer- Rumpy and I take later evening walks. I notice as we are out, so are the homeless cats, moving either to or from the neighborhood feeding station.   Last night Old Sam was walking down the sidewalk in front of our house. He stopped and sat as … Continue reading

Taking My Dog to a Job Interview

I have always been fool enough to believe a job should be offered the person who is the most qualified. Yet you can be the biggest fuck-up the world has ever seen and bullshit your way through an interview to get hired. Having resigned myself to the reality that I need to brush up on my BS, I started … Continue reading

The Gift of Health, Courtesy of Rumpy and JB

Among the many gifts given me by Rumpy and June Buggie is the gift of health. Because of Rumpy I get out and get moving each day. June Buggie keeps me on a regular schedule with his insistence he be fed at the same time each morning. And then there is the gift of mental … Continue reading

Of Pets and Power Suits

First thing this morning I had to appear in court. WAIT! No, this is NOT a post about work, I promise! But it’s important to tell you that I had to put on my best game face today, and we women know all too well that wearing that power suit makes you look and feel more confident. … Continue reading

Cats Defeat Dogs in the Photography Department!

MEOW! June Buggie here. It’s always chapped my ass that dogs seem to get more of everything in this world. They have more money spent on them. There are more medications available for dogs than cats. There are dog parks, dog weddings, dog food out the butt. But FINALLY it looks like us cats have … Continue reading
