The wisdom of the Silvieon4

Shhhhh listen to me. I am going to give you wisdom:




Bill Vaughan said that in the game of life, it's a good idea to have a few early losses, which relieves you of the pressure of trying to maintain an undefeated season. ----

While that is true, I see it like this: While it's good to be born with a silver spoon in your mouth, you must realize that you will have to deal with the taste of tarnish.

And that's my Silvieism for the day

This is Rosie

This beautiful little girl was just rescued. I had the pleasure of welcoming her to our Tidewater Bichon Frise family. Rosie is a seven month old, 5 lb baby whose life prior to rescue has not been easy. We already love her. Momma already fed her. [Momma is a compulsive feeder of all starved creatures.]

As you can see, Rosie needs to be fed! A lot! And she needs a loving family who can help her regain trust in humanity. Her former 4leggeds were not nice to her. She was forced to life outside... She was not treated well. I know Rosie looks really thin, but, I know my group. I know this little girl is a budding beauty and between vitamins, feeding, grooming and training, soon enough she will be in her best form.


Love. Hope. Faith. Charity. We got that. I guess momma will be baking a whole lot to make sure Rosie gets all her medical and all her other needs met. So it costs money. Dirty paper. Never quite got the value of dirty paper, but hey if you have some extra dirty paper, send it to Tidewater Bichon Frise Rescue, 'cause we need it. Rosie needs it. We will be taking pictures of Rosie and tracking her recovery. We promised her she will be fine and she will be safe and happily placed in a great forever home.

We keep our promises.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Alfie


Posted by Picasa


My name is Alfie and I was a wreck until Auntie Robin called my foster Mom to pick me up. I was wandering the streets and was a matted mess...the people who found me called me Mattie, but I didn't like that name much. They cut off all my mats, but when my hair grows back out I will be very handsome again! I am a little grumpy in the morning until after my walk then I run and play!
This is my favorite place to nap, but I usually have to share the space with Cassie and Sammy I am one happy fluff these days. I have two cousins who I love to hang out with. I am house trained and that makes my foster Mom very happy. When I need to go outside, I sit patiently at the door waiting for my leash to be put on me. Once I am outside though, I would really love to run real fast, but the leash won't let me. Foster Mommie says I need to work on walking on a leash and I am trying really hard to do better but there is just so much to sniff and chase out there! I think cats and children are okay though I haven't really had much exposure to them. I love to snuggle, especially at bed time. I don't bark much except when someone comes to the door. I wasn't very hungry when I first got here, but my appetite has come back. I sit patiently and wait for Foster Mommie to put my bowl down. I really want my own forever home, so please adopt me!

CAT alert!


The nerve of some creatures! A cat has invaded our front yard. Can you believe it? Only a cat would be so callous as to ignore territory boundaries. And it is a fat cat. And it is deaf, otherwise our barking and growling would scare the living daylights out of him. And... why is it that we can't defend our territory and go out there and show him who is boss????

Momma is not letting us. That is why we can't defend our yard. what is wrong with momma anyway????

PACK vs privacy?


Ok. It is barely 7 and the momma is baking ... already. Either momma is crazy or we are going to have loads of leftovers OR.... hmm could it be??? Oh my... I think it is... The Dowi, the Adam and the nonna are coming!!!!! Full House!!! Never at a loss for a belly rub. Always getting the best nibbles... oh... that also means Fip is coming. Doing the happy dance.

Hm. Downside. That also means lots more work for me. Let me explain.
In polite 4legged society, when you are part of a pack, you sleep next to each other sharing warmth, you reinforce all the trust issues by being together, at all times. At meal time, at rest time, and play time and most of all at sleep time. Alas... 2leggeds have this weird mentality. Come sleep time, they all scatter to various bedrooms and sleep in their "own"bed. Do you have any idea how hard it is to keep tract of 6 or 7 people scattered all over the house? It makes life difficult. And what's the attraction in isolation anyway? In a bed alone... you don't get snuggled. You don't get soft, furry toasties, and you are ALONE. You have no protection from anything, YOU ARE ALONE. I don't get it at all.

I would much rather share a bed, a couch, a chair, sleeping bag... rock... whatever, with my pack, than sleep in a big huge bed ALONE. But... 2leggeds seem to value privacy above safety, security, comfort, logic and pack survival. GO figure.

My adaptation to their bizarre needs has been the morning rounds of hellos and hugs and kisses.
Momma and daddy, I love our bed and I don't want to change our arrangements, but please understand if I am compelled to "visit" Dowi in the middle of the night. I just need to know everyone is OK.

Phew. Understanding humans is difficult. They are illogical. Best we can do is cope.

Soooo that is why it's called TURKEY!!!!!!


Don't you just hate it when the 4legged who NEVER uses the computer, sits down long enough to prove you wrong? And you need to know that he did not even use Dragon Naturally barking! He used primitive paws to bring up this:

From Wiki:

"A turkey is either of two living species of large birds in the genus Meleagris. One species, Meleagris gallopavo, commonly known as the Wild Turkey, is native to the forests of North America. The other species, Meleagris ocellata, known as the Ocellated Turkey, is native to the forests of the Yucatán Peninsula.

The domestic turkey is a descendant of the Wild Turkey and features prominently in the menu of the Canadian and U.S. holidays of Thanksgiving and that of Christmas in many countries.

Turkeys are classed in the taxonomic order of Galliformes. Within this order they are relatives of the family/subfamily Tetraonidae (grouse). Turkeys have a distinctive fleshy wattle that hangs from the underside of the beak, and a fleshy protuberance that hangs from the top of its beak called a snood. With wingspans of 1.5–1.8 metres (4.9–5.9 ft), the turkeys are by far the largest birds in the open forests in which they live. As with many Galliform species the female (hen) is smaller than the male (tom or gobbler) and is much less colorful."

BUT!!!!!
Read on McDuff!!! The name makes no sense because the 2leggeds really had no idea where they were and... they misidentified the bird!!!!! See??? I knew the name was wrong! The poor bird got stuck with the wrong name!!! Imagine if everyone called you a cow and you were a dog!!! How terrible!!

"When Europeans first encountered turkeys in the Americas they incorrectly identified the birds as a type of guineafowl (Numididae), also known as Turkey fowl (or Turkey hen and Turkey cock) from their importation to Central Europe through Turkey, and that name, shortened to just the name of the country, stuck as the name of the bird. The confusion between these kinds of birds from related but different families is also reflected in the scientific name for the turkey genus: meleagris (μελεαγρίς) is Greek for guineafowl. The domesticated turkey is attributed to Aztec agriculture, which addressed one subspecies of Meleagris gallopavo local to the present day states of Jalisco and Guerrero.[1]

The names for M. gallopavo in other languages also frequently reflect its exotic origins, seen from an Old World viewpoint, and add to the confusion about where turkeys actually came from. The many references to India seen in common names go back to a combination of two factors: first, the genuine belief that the newly-discovered Americas were in fact a part of Asia, and second, the tendency during that time to attribute exotic animals and foods to a place that symbolized far-off, exotic lands. The latter is reflected in terms like "Muscovy Duck" (which is from South America, not Muscovy). This was a major reason why the name Turkey fowl stuck to Meleagris rather than to the guinea fowl (Numida meleagris): the Ottoman Empire represented the exotic East."


So, bird, what do I call you? Obviously I have a dilemma. Chicken you are NOT. I want to be PC. Am I perpetuating a mistake by calling you "turkey"? I suppose that is what you identify with since it has been in use for many many generations. So... reluctantly.... do you mind???
Turkey it shall be.

Groan. JD suggests I stop all this "hypocrisy" and call the bird "delicious". Oh he is soooo cold.

Awareness is not always comfortable.

HUMONGOUS CHICKEN day

Hm. Who is crazy? I keep referring to that big bird momma has in the fridge for next week as the BIG CHICKEN- the HUMONGOUS CHICKEN-. Looks like a HUGE one. 25 lbs? Like I said ONE HUMONGOUS CHICKEN.

Every time I say big chicken everyone corrects me. A chorus of "TURKEY: not chicken."

I finally got tired and went about doing some research. I typed "turkey"in my search engine and this is what I got: from wiki: TURKEY.
Turkey (Turkish: Türkiye), known officially as the Republic of Turkey (Tur-Türkiye_is a Eurasian country that stretches across the Anatolian peninsula in Western Asia and Thrace (Rumelia) in the Balkan region of southeastern Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries: Bulgaria to the northwest; Greece to the west; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, Azerbaijan (the exclave of Nakhchivan) and Iran to the east; and Iraq and Syria to the southeast. The Mediterranean Sea and Cyprus are to the south; the Aegean Sea to the west; and the Black Sea is to the north. Separating Anatolia and Thrace are the Sea of Marmara and the Turkish Straits (the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles), which are commonly reckoned to delineate the boundary between Europe and Asia, thereby making Turkey a transcontinental[5] country of significant geostrategic importance.[6][7] Ethnic Turks form the majority of the population, followed by the Kurds. The predominant religion in Turkey is Islam. The official language is Turkish.

It is a country! Is the chicken so big it was named after a country??? I think so. I stand by my take. HUMONGOUS CHICKEN. It must be rare that they get that big, or it takes a whole lot of time to grow them that big, because you only see them once a year on Thanksgiving.

And, I am sorry, but I am not calling it by its "street name" It is not PC. I will call it what it is. HUMONGOUS CHICKEN. It deserves that much dignity and I am looking forward to fulfilling its destiny ...on my plate.

ODE to prosciutto


My ode to prosciutto

Oh delicious, oh salty, oh wonderful, oh grand morsel of heaven's delight
how do I get more of you in my sight?

Oh the scent of thy goodness toys with my soul.
Do you come only in thin slices or in a "whole"?

Oh the conflict I feel when I think of your start...
from pig, this greatness which tugs at my heart?

Parma, San Daniele, Colli Berico-Euganei, Norcia, I love you all,
my mouth waters! You are on the plate! Why is the table so tall?

As she unwraps you, your scent wafts and it's bewitching,
first, my nose, then my whole body starts twitching?

A nibble, a taste, please share a bite!
Oh thank you, thank you, what delight!

One more thought, if you please, before you close the fridge door...
"Please, Sir, I want some more."'

Dear Louie



Welcome to White Cottage. First of all, relax, you are now in a safe place and you will be taken care of. I know you feel confused, and scared. I don't know why you were "given up". I am so sorry it happened. But, trust me on this, you lucked out. Auntie Robin and uncle Jack will not allow anything bad to happen to you ever again. White Cottage is where you will learn new things and you will wait for your forever home. Honestly. Forever.

I know that suddenly being around that many 4leggeds is confusing. But, tell the truth, it is also kind of nice. I am sure they all told you you are safe from any harm now. The place you were left at... was NOT safe, even though they call it a shelter... sometimes that is place where it all ends. I don't really want to think or talk about that. YOU ARE SAFE, be happy.

I vaguely recall how confused I was at my arrival at White Cottage. You know, I almost never think of that time. I am happy, I am home now. I have a big brother named JD and a sister named Wendy and a whole 2legged family that stretches across the world. Louie you are now rescued and waiting for adoption and a family will welcome you like I was welcomed and will love you no matter. [even when you chew corners on pillows...that is just an example, I am admitting nothing]

Oh... listen Louie, ever hear the words "healthy diet"? You are now on one. I think by the time we see you... you will be thinner. Sorry about that. But Tidewater Bichon Frise Rescue is into healthy. No junk food, no additives... no fats... and lots of exercise!

Looking forward to a nose to nose meet and greet, welcome to the TBFR family!

Don't JUDGE me

I just discovered something amazing. I LOVE love love love, getting petted, belly rubbed or even just touched by a gloved hand or two. Look, I know, it sounds strange, but the feel of cashmere or fine, buttery soft leather against me is... just wonderful. Oh, yes, satins and silks are nice too. Sigh, I am a slave to hedonism. I don't know why my humans don't always wear gloves. Momma refers to herself as "staff". Shouldn't "staff" be gloved at all times??? I don't want to analyze the whys. That would be like dissecting a butterfly to figure out why its colors are pretty. I just want to enjoy the experience more often. How do I get them to wear gloves to pet me?

Any ideas out there?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Now, for your info, that whole bit about one being born every minute, only applyes to 2leggeds. So... you might want to delete me from your mailing list. Chump.

Carmen...only a cat could get away with this!

From Pawnation:
Crazed Kitty Sparks Police Visit To Home

A 10-year-old Russian Blue named Carmen terrorized her owners in their own home in New York City for a half an hour on Saturday before police arrived and were able to calm the animal down. The cat's owner, Rosa Davila, believes that her cat's violent behavior is due to a medical condition.

The 16-pound cat began making strange noises and suddenly launched herself at Davila's 27-year-old son Victor. Rosa and Victor hid in the apartment's bedroom while Rosa called 911 and asked them to rescue her family from the upset kitty.

Hordes of police officers arrived at the apartment expecting to find a wild cat -- and were surprised to find the portly Russian Blue instead. Carmen was coaxed into a cat carrier and taken to Manhattan's Animal Care and Control center where she may be available for adoption after she is evaluated.

Davila told the New York Post that Carmen was diagnosed as borderline diabetic with a thyroid condition; she wanted to be fed every five minutes and she was rapidly gaining weight. Davila was unable to afford proper medical treatment for Carmen and she believes that her disorder led her to become violent.


My personal note.... If someone can help with her meds, Carmen could stay with her family????? What do I know, I am just a 4legged... with common sense...

Ahhh she has something to taste!!!! Oh ok. I am willing to sniff it for you. [Insecure cooks!]

The BEST naps




The best naps always happen in your momma's arms. I don't know why, but napping in momma's arms gives me the best sleep. It is a warm, soft, cozy and safe place. And... you get belly rubs and kisses while you are sleeping. I like it. I even like better than 7 pillows. But, there is a downside. Occasionally, the woman will try and brush me while I am asleep in her arms! Dastardly deed, don't you think? It is a sure way to harsh my sleep buzz and wake me up. I need to talk to her about that...

Magic HAT Grandma!



Yea, yea, yea... I overheard momma talking about going to see Nicole's mom at her book signing.
I was sooo excited. I have met artists [hiiii auntie Darlene- Wynn's momma] , I have met doctors, lawyers, firemen and chiefs, but I have never met a real author with published books! Fun books anyway. My Adam and Dowi [human siblings] are authors. They have a published book, but not one picture in the whole book and it is not what I would call and "easy read" ... It is a law book. So , I happily trotted my tush out to the car this afternoon figuring... I will meet Nicole's momma. Ms. Hilda Principe. I will meet a fun book author! You know I love books. You know I have "sampled" some delicious literature in my day.

Well. Taking a deep breath. I did NOT get to meet anyone. I was unceremoniously dropped off at my groomer's. No, I did not stink, and noooo I did not have mats! I needed a hair cut, according to momma, and my nails needed a trim. But out of 365 days she picks this day to drag me to get groomed? I wanted to meet Ms. Hilda. Her book looks delicious and she gave crayons. I saw them. Momma put them where I cannot reach them. [The cruelty never stops...] And Miss Hilda, I want you to know I have not sampled your book because I have been told I am not allowed. Just for the record, I saw that my groomer also sells your book! Is everyone in on this, but me??? I need my own copy!!!!

After all. "Magic Hat Grandma Makes Purple Peanut Butter Sandwiches by Hilda Principe is a very instructive book! Grandma teaches, by example, to share and care about creatures [I am a creature!] that have been abandoned. She endorses the practice of rescuing animals [I am a rescue!!!] and teaches children the joy of helping those precious [seriously, I am precious!!!] little animals to have a life of love. Featuring Grandma's new rescued Bichon Frise. [Momma are you taking notes? Nicole was the inspiration for the book!]

This is the second book featuring magic grandma... HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JD just told me I can get my own personalized copy at: http://members.petfinder.org/~VA34/boutique.html

Profits from each book will be donated to Tidewater Bichon Frise Rescue.
Be sure to mention TBFR when ordering your books.

Momma, I don't need you. For this, anyway. I will get my own and sample it to my heart's content.

Groomed and... bookless

Four Rivers Fountain at Piazza Navona



Can we pleaaaaase go there? I need a bite of the super thin crispy pizza from Da Francesco. Or maybe, some hand cut prosciutto with focaccia??? We have been home forever and ever. I need la dolce vita not la soaked and drenched gray vita.

Mommaaaaa, pleaaase.

And, and, and... can we go to San Crispino for gelato al limone? I always appreciate Bernini more when I am licking gelato.

I have needs! I know we can get you a superb espresso at Sant'Eustachio Cafe. I am willing to work with your needs.

And, did you notice I did not ask to go to Trevi? I am way more hip than that.

But, if you have some extra cash, I am thinking La Rosetta? After all chef Massimo Riccioli's

Bichons and art.

More accurate statement: Bichons ARE art.

Bichons, a history of art.

What a wonderful article. It validates what I have always known. We, Bichons are the unsung heros of the art world. Any painting worth anything, has a Bichon as a leading subject. If you don't believe me, just look!.


My own personal favorites are by Goya:


The Duchess of Alba, without her beautiful [albaeit poorly groomed by today's standards...] Bichon, Alba would be just some lady in a white dress.
But the dress, echos the whiteness of her Bichon and it makes Alba a stand out. Alba in black, sans Bichon... not as good. Common. Boring.

I promised momma to buy her that painting as soon as I win the lottery.
Is it for sale yet? I thing the museum needs to have a big garage sale and make room for new art.


And of course Maria Teresa.

María Teresa de Borbón y Vallabriga - 1783

The niece of
of King Carlos III of Spain in the 16th century is made attractive by her Bichon. His fluffy white cuteness balances the child's huge head dress and softens the severity of her black dress.One more observation. In both paintings the Bichons are dutifully sitting quietly... waiting... echos of my life...

Honestly, why do you think we need that fireplace? It is making me hot!

Did you happen to notice? I am wearing a thick, soft, luscious, curly... warm coat!

Ohhhh! :) SPeakin g of coats. Upside to the storm... our groomer just rescheduled. Her street is under water.

Oh wait, I am supposed to show concern. Sadness even. Let me dig deep. Let me emote...

Nahh, sorry I got nothing.

I got party feet and a sudden burst of energy. Now, turn off that fireplace and get me a fruitsicle!

Momma opens the door and tells us..."Go out, if you want to, go out and play..."

She is sooo funny, I forgot to laugh, NOT.
Maybe she should go out and "play". Where is my p-pad???

rain , rain, RAIN.... be done already!!!!




You know what all that green means? It's a November Nor'easter.

It means RAIN, rain, rain and more rain. And did I mention the wind? I am done with all the wet already! Can somebody please turn it off? I have asked momma and daddy, but they are not listening.



So, we are stuck in the house. Or should I say, we are "captured victims of momma's camera". If she ever learns how to post the videos...

Right now I am watching the trees dance to the heavy winds. Talk about a salad of leaves out there! It looks like someone tossed a salad in the air.

So, who can turn off the wind machine and the rain machine? I need to find them and chat.... 'nuff is 'nuff...
