It's mine. I have claimed it.

I found it. I as in me, I FOUND IT.  I know the law. Founder-keeper. Therefore the new fancy
Couch-ette is mine, all mine. And everyone knows, if it fits I sits. Therefore it's mine.
I look great on it. Therefore it's mine. It matches something, therefore it's mine. It now has my smell and therefore it's mine.

No, I really don't want the boys on it. It's mine. Claimingggggggggg it. From this moment forward it is mine. My tushie needs this. It is MINE.



Silvie and Max

Max: "Did he say squirrel? I will chase and kill squirrel for you Silvie!"

Silvie: "Nahh they always say "squirrel". Hoomans, poor eyes, poor hearing, no real sniffing capacity, but hey they got thumbs!  And did I mention? NO TAIL"....

JD- yard, patio, gazebo. NOTHING gets past him and he is on a fist name basis with the tailed rats you call squirrels.  He brokered the famous co existence treaty of 2001. We ignore them, they ignore us, we both hate ducks. DONE.

Wendy- Upstairs, back of the closets and under the chairs.  She sounds the alarm if anything approaches the steps. She has barking stamina. Can go at it for days....

Cosmo....He is still in the learning phase. From a deep sleep, his eyes pop open "Is that noise something?????"

Moi.  I guard major assets. Momma is a major asset.  I am a specialist at letting her think she is getting loved while in fact I am making sure she is ok.

See? I am hard at work and she is thinking I am just into snuggle!

Cosmo, waiting for cue to join in a full bark alarm.  Momma asked him if daddy is home. Soon he will be taking over downstairs duty so I can focus on the hoomans, full time.

And you thought we were just cute fluffies!... Duh.....This is serious stuff!

What are you doing with your time?

Life, things... and finally some good news! Happy dancing!

"Slowly emerging from the shock of this last week and learning to live with new realities." that is how momma has described the last few days. Totally inaccurate. 

A better description would be "Sad, sadder, saddest". We have been taking turns being at her side at all times, and I mean at all times. IT is a job!.  One- she does not sit still,  Two- she is all over the place, three- she talks to herself, a lot. And then there is that question that she asks forty times a day..."What am I doing here?  What was I doing?"   Seriously.  Why ask us?  She is the one doing! ANYWAY. The distractions from her mood have been unpleasant...funerals, losses, helplessness...and then the stooopid stuff like the dishwasher  that threw up... lots of water. AGAIN! Momma was livid to say the least. They are supposedly working on that... Aha. 

I have been "distracted" by a new thing I have observed. So, see if you can give me some sort of insight.  Momma has been painting her nails... For as long as I can recall, momma wore a demure French manicure. Timeless, Elegant. Nice.  All of a sudden... without notice... her nails were purple... then really dark purple, then black.... then dark dark gray... then mauve... now bloody red. What the hey???? Mind you I have smelled them all. They all smell the same. And yes, no taste, save for chemical  yuck.  So... what is going on?  Why does momma suddenly go weird on us? Is this normal for two leggeds? Is it some sort of vague attempt at cheering up?

For sure the new colors have not helped her memory. She tried to put a belly band on Wendy! Yuh, That did not play well.  We were actually considering calling the hooman siblings to discuss momma's weirdness and lack of smiles, when she got a -phone call. 

And just like that. We saw "the smile"  She smiled!!! Erik has a home!  He is going to live with auntie Maryann, Frannie's mom. Frannie crossed over the rainbow Bridge a little while ago. She left a huge empty space in her momma's heart. Erik's human momma also crossed over. He has been sad and grieving. Obviously this was a match that was meant to be!  And because humans have NO LOGIC... momma cried at that happy news.

All I can say ...calling Mr Spock, we need a mind meld, this woman is coming apart at her emotional seams.

Erik and Auntie Maryann, I love you both and I AM GRATEFUL YOU HAVE EACH OTHER!

Me?  I am shaking my tush, I am getting ready to bust a move! It is happppppppppyYYYY DancinG   TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  {yes, all over the keyboard!}

Sadness, unspeakable sadness 11/13/15

Une prière pour ma belle ville de Paris

Nous somme france!

Allons enfants de la patrie,
Le jour de gloire est arrivé!
Contre nous de la tyrannie
L'etendard sanglant est levé! (bis)
Entendez-vous dans les campagnes,
Mugir ces féroces soldats?
Ils viennent jusque dans nos bras
Égorger nos fils, nos compagnes!

Aux armes, citoyens!
Formez vos bataillons!
Marchons! Marchons!
Qu'un sang impur
Abreuve nos sillons!

Amour sacré de la patrie,
Conduis, soutiens nos bras vengeurs!
Liberté, Liberté cherie,
Combats avec tes défenseurs! (bis)
Sous nos drapeaux, que la victoire
Accoure à tes mâles accents!
Que tes ennemis expirants
Voient ton triomphe et notre gloire!

Nous entrerons dans la carrière
Quand nos aînés n'y seront plus;
Nous y trouverons leur poussière
Et la trace de leurs vertus.
Bien moins jaloux de leur survivre
Que de partager leur cercueil,
Nous aurons le sublime orgueil
De les venger ou de les suivre!
