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

Pet Guardianship: Not All Peaches and Cream

Mommy bloggers want us all to believe that parenting is 24/7 joy and fun. Sadly, so do many pet bloggers. I’m not one of them.  To be honest, some days caring for a fur kid really sucks. Right now I am fuming because I have worked so hard to get the cats upstairs. I have … Continue reading

All Things Cat

Cats are in the news this weekend.  First, Bubba Cat had his turn at the vet, and his bloodwork results were upsetting. He, too, has hyperthyroidism. To be honest, I hadn’t considered hyperthyroidism with Bubba because he hasn’t been as ravenous as Junior was when first diagnosed. But he does show other symptoms, such as weight … Continue reading

Cat Stuff

We have a new vet! I’m happy to have found a vet clinic that meets the needs of my family. They’re friendly, caring folks and knowledgeable. I am relieved. This past Saturday June Buggie gave them a try. He had an annual exam and vaccinations to include blood work to test his thyroid level. He … Continue reading

This week Gwen sent out an email to her readers alerting us to a book being hawked … Continue reading

Vets: Why Don’t They Treat Pets Like Family?

I am LIVID! This morning I took June Buggie to his new vet for a follow-up visit for his thyroid. When I called to make the appointment, I told them what it was for. I explained he had not had this service with their clinic before. I was given no instructions regarding prepping for the … 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

A Few Limericks for your Reading Pleasure

I got notice this week of my 5 year blogging anniversary. Wow! Has it really been that long? How about we celebrate with a new round of limericks?    A futball showed up here one day. I looked for its home right away. I put up a sign That said it’s not mine But it’s … Continue reading
