Taking Comfort in Stock

We adults act like we can take anything life throws at us. And while most of us can, it doesn’t mean we’ll come out the other end unscathed. I vacuumed out my car yesterday afternoon for the first time since Rumpy’s diagnosis. Why did I wait two weeks? Maybe for the same reason I didn’t … Continue reading

A Weekend with Rumpy

Rumpy will not stay in the same room with me. At first I thought it was the temp of the room, because the living room tends to be warmer than the bedroom. But this weekend I noticed when I entered the room where he lay, he’d soon get up and move to the other room. … Continue reading

When You’re Told Your Dog is Dying…

Don’t worry, I’m not offended that you won’t read this bog post. This one is for those who who will go through this as some point, and need to know there is someone out there who understands.  First you sit on the sofa and cry. Be prepared to go through an entire box of tissues. You make a … Continue reading

The Vet Said…

We’ve just come back from our follow-up with the vet. The initial exam was unremarkable. Normal temp. Breathing sounded better. His lymph nodes felt OK. Next more X-rays to have another look at that lymph node. I also asked if they’d aspirate the tumor on his leg to see if it could be a lypoma. It’s … 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

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

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

I’m not sure Hissy Fit Jones understands the concept of Santa yet, but, bless his heart, he’s trying. Continue reading
