I learned something new today about Bourbon (the dog, not the booze) today: he is an avid fan of the British Royal Family. While I watched a documentary about the late Princess Diana, he was riveted by the screen. (Don’t tell me that dogs don’t understand TV and that this is proof I need to… Continue reading Bourbon, Prince of Barksylvania
Much as predicted, we have a new furry member of the family. Literally, the same day I wrote the last post, we went to a small town near us to a non-no-kill shelter and adopted our new dog, Bourby. It hasn’t been the turnkey experience that I was hoping for, but so far things are… Continue reading So, that happened
So, I don’t know. I’m thinking it may be time to add to the family. It’s been nearly 1 year since Betty passed away, so nearly 1 year since we moved to Texas. And what nicer way to cap off this (very good, very bad, very weird, all in one) year than by adopting a… Continue reading New dog, maybe?
So. The terrible awful thing that happened the day after we got to TX. (Hideous Spoiler Alert: As of today, we only have two dogs now) Anyway. Early in 2016, Betty was taking a long time to pee. I’d noticed it even in Cheesecake City but chalked it up to her being old. Eating like… Continue reading It’s All Over Now, Betty Boop
First things first: Gene has informed me that our next dog should be named Patrice, after the much maligned character on How I Met Your Mother. Considering that three dogs puts us above capacity, I assume that he will have forgotten this whim by the time we’re in the market for a new dog. (I… Continue reading Breed All About It
So, a week or so ago I had a dream that my mom gave us a dog. It was a dachshund/yorkie mix (a dorkie). I was upset because I didn’t really want a fourth dog and if we got one I wanted a corgi (which is true, I want a corgi so bad!). And as… Continue reading Pyle
So, yesterday we finally got the dogs to the vet’s office to get them caught up on the various and sundry medical things that needed to be done. (Speaking of which… I, LaineyD, solemnly swear to get my dogs to the vet’s office when they are actually due for things and not 1-3 months later).… Continue reading Negative Girl…
1. What did you do in 2012 that you’d never done before? I attended the midnight premiere of a movie (The Hunger Games), I watched the Twilight movies (so bad, so very very bad), I ate and enjoyed avocado/guacamole and I watched many many episodes of Star Trek The Next Generation. 2. Did you keep… Continue reading 2012 Year in Review
Sadie’s been coughing a lot this week. I feel like it’s time to take her to the vet’s office. They will probably recommend doing another round of ‘fast kill’ to try and get rid of whatever heart worms are in her lungs still. I’m going to push hard to do this – maybe after vacation… Continue reading Hack, hack, hack….
(Skip if you’re squeamish, this is unbelievably gross). Remember last April when I post that April 2012 was cancelled because my dog killed the Easter Bunny? AIEEEEEEEEE. In other news, guess what happened this morning? I guess this explains why we had such a hard time getting Betty to come in the house, despite the… Continue reading Easter 2013 is Also Cancelled…
