UPDATES....




Cousin Coop is doing well. And he is a handsome cat , I am told, Quite a looker even. I 'spose so.
He is soft. That I will give him. And he has great taste in linens.

In the interest of full disclosure, he is basking in blessed ignorance. That means that to date we have not told him about Cosmo.

We should.

We will.

But, but, but... the when and how have not been worked out , yet.

My momma likes to turn everything into a "ceremony". We let her.

The Wendy.  Doing well. To date, she has managed to co -exist with Cosmo without much interaction. It will happen ON HER TERMS. Until then, back off dude.

The Wendy does not put up with much. She will do what she wants and you better deal with it.
She is my hero.


JD is back on full window patrol. Yup. Momma tears up every single time she sees him "tracking" yellow cat. She does have a message for the stooopid person who questioned what kind of an idiot would spend $$$ [dirty paper] to fix up an old dog...

"THIS IDIOT WOULD SPEND EVERY SINGLE DIME AND THEN SOME TO GIVE HER DOGS WHATEVER THEY NEEDED TO IMPROVE THEIR QUALITY OF LIFE.

And here is a sobering thought for you.... if money and cash value is the only standard we should apply... in actuarial tables lingo.... you are a 60++[??] year old unemployed woman with a cardiac condition, a history of cancer and no present or future earning potential. Technically speaking you have a negative value as you are costing money and generating none. See where I am going?
The next time you get sick, should we just have you put down? 
[when momma gets mad... stuff comes out of her mouth. no apologies... reality is harsh, sometimes]

It's not about the dirty paper,  It is about EVERYTHING else".

Get real. Nuff said.


Thank you everyone at Hickory Veterinary and ANIMAL EYE CARE ASSOCIATES 
Dr Redding, 
Dr Klemm
Dr. Nadelstein and
 Dr Lieber 
you are the best,


And Mr Myke... There is a lot of grooming to be done according to the momma. But heck we all know she is OCD...

 Meanwhile, JD the king, is back!

Moi?  I chill. I am cool, No worries. Wanna a rub a belly?
I happen to have one of those right here.

It will knock 20 points off your BP reading.  Go ahead, It's therapeutic.

The Cosmo? Oh him.
He is worried. The pool is just about ready.
The pool is the only thing that boy is worried about.
Kinda keeps him HUMBLE... Ha.....


He now divides his suckling time between Splish, Froggy and Monkey... and he also is exploring puzzles. [He is not good at that]
Ehmmmm toy obsessed...

He is smart, works the momma like an old pro.
We shall see how that will play out IN DA POOL... dadaddadummmmmmm





Momma and the daddy are facing phase two of the renovation like old pros... who am I kidding?  They are too tired to react!
But then, we are only at the start of that!

DOWNLOAD THIS NOW APCC by ASPCA



<~~~~~~ CLICK ON THIS

Our new free mobile app provides a wealth of poison control knowledge in the palm of your hand. With quick access to potentially life-saving information and our hotline 24/7/365, the ASPCA APCC app will help you keep your pet safe year-round.






Description

Products that may seem safe in your home and garden can actually be toxic for pets, and all too often pets are poisoned as a result of their natural curiosity. That’s why the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – the country’s first animal welfare organization and a leading voice for animals -- has launched the APCC by ASPCA App.
Focusing on dogs, cats, horses, and birds, the free app helps owners quickly and accurately identify and understand common household hazards, toxic and non-toxic plants, potentially harmful medications, as well as warm or cold weather hazards. It also provides crucial information about the severity of the problem and critical next steps.
Information in the app comes from expert toxicologists at the ASPCA’s Animal Poison Control Center, which handles more than 180,000 cases each year of pets exposed to potentially toxic substances.
APCC by ASPCA Features
- A searchable database of hundreds of plants, household hazards, medications, warm weather toxins and cold weather toxins commonly found in or around homes
- Details for each toxin including: scientific name, alternate names, example images, severity of exposure, and potential symptoms for at-risk dogs, cats, horses, and birds
- Color-coding to help you identify the toxins of most concern
- Dogs and chocolate poison meter
- Built-in rodent poison calculator
- One-touch speed-dialing to the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center
As the weather improves, this app is a vital tool for pet owners shopping for new houseplants or garden additions. But all pet parents should download the APCC by ASPCA app to keep their animals safe and far from harm.
Please note that the information is not meant to be all-inclusive, but rather a compilation of the most frequently encountered toxins. As always, if you suspect your pet may have ingested a poisonous substance, contact your local veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center immediately.



KNOW THE DANGERS AND KNOW WHAT TO DO.

DOWNLOAD THIS SO THAT IT IS ON YOUR PHONE AND AVAILABLE WHEN AND IF EVER NEEDED.

DON'T WAIT. IGNORANCE CAN BE DEADLY.

KEEP YOUR PET SAFE.

Overheard at the "cement pond"

The Wendy decided to give Cosmo some insight as to what is coming.

Why?  Well in part because the two leggeds were out there opening up the pool for the season. Cosmo was annoying everyone with his barking because that is what he does when he is excited and when he has no idea what is happening.
Telling the boy about the pool was a sure fire way to get him refocused. The Wendy is smart.


Here is what we heard:
"It wont's be long now, Cosmo boy. You are going to have your first "pool" experience.
 You better start suckling your duckie and get all the "consolation" you can get.

Momma is kind of nuts about this. Once that muck is out of that pool, and once the water starts looking transparent and not foamy or green or iccky... momma will be pulling out life jackets. FOR US.  Yes, dude, US.  Meaning us four -four leggeds-.



Cosmo started to listen and started to worry. He got Splish. He tried to ignore The Wendy at first.


But that plan went out the window when she pulled out the old pictures. 
All The Wendy had to to do was sit back and let Cosmo look at the pictures.
They told the story.





Yea, Cos, it's coming... POOOOOOL TIME











Silvieon4 asked: "Wendy, are you going to tell him ?  Are you just going to terrorize the boy?"

The Wendy: "Yawn... boy the key to getting out "swim lessons" is to show momma that
1. you can paddle swim and stay afloat.

2. you know how to get to steps and get out. There, I told him, like that is going to help him. Hahahaha and don't bother asking why. They are hoomans, they do all sorts of strange things!"

JD, lookes over to The Wendy and gave her that look... you know... THAT look that said it all... YOU EVIL GIRL....

And now we have a quiet worried Cosmo and silence is supreme.

Ahh, the cuteness of it all or momma's brain needs a reboot

So, today I experienced two heart melting moments.  I was in the car with the momma.  She saw a van in front of us and this is what it said . {with license to protect privacy}

JOENONAMECARPETCARE.NET

Momma says: "Wow.  Wonder what they do." In her brain she read it as JOENONAMECAR PETCARE.NET

UH? Momma they tell you what they do. What the woof?  Before I could bark a single woff, the little woman has pulled up next to the van and lowering her window she asks the driver "What kind of car care do you provide for pets?"

First melting moment.  The driver cocked his head to the side, giving momma the cutest head tilt evah!  Looked like me when I am trying to make sense of hooman jibberish, you know... hoomanish? He was so cute. And he managed cuteness without floppy ears!!! I am woofing sooo sooo cute.

He then shook his head, tilted the other way and said " No, No, I wash carpets... floor coverings... you know, rugs... nothing to do with pets... or cars...not directly, anyway..."

Then momma, gave me the second melting moment!  She cocked her head to the side, dropped her jaw and said,. "OOOOOOOHHHH... duh. You know where my mind is...."

He had no idea that she had a mind, let alone where it was... But my momma's head tilt was so cute I just wanted to lick up her face!.

Soooo, do you think she needs a reboot?  She seems to have a corrupt sector. Either that... or we have finally flipped her total reality so that she can no longer related to anything PET-Less...

But I want more head tilts.  They are so so so cute!!!!

Check this out!

http://coffeecanine.blogspot.com/2015/04/silvie-goldstein-jd-wendy-silvieon4-and.html.  
We were honored and thrilled to be part of Coffee With a Canine.

I bet there are things in this post you never knew!

Read it.

So...what have you learned?


'Vie

I need to renegotiate my contract

It has been a few intense days. And the next time momma says I am high maintenance, someone please point to the calendar entries for this week and set her straight. Paws down, bar none, JD has been in crisp focus in the spotlight. Where was momma?  Where was daddy?  Both hanging on for dear life and both losing they mind.

You know that JD had a cataract removed. Surgery was stellar, recovery was fine, until the cone of shame. Then 2 things happened.  One... Mr JD had little or no peripheral vision while wearing the cone and that made him take a misstep and injure his R rear leg. Given his trick knee, momma was upset, but not crazed.  Then, the cone of shame came off, and his royal pain in the tuchus, JD, scratched his surgical site.  He started winking and blinking and momma went crazy.  Back to Dr R, back into the cone, back on more drops, and when inflammation persisted, JD got a shot in the eye.

Now, you must take the time to formulate the visual here... a Bichon... needing a good grooming [no grooming until the eye dc says so... nice play JD!] with two "poodled" front paws... limping. This is what the word PATH-. ETHIC could only be describing,

But the drama does not end here. You see, sometimes, an infection shows up in the eye even when it starts elsewhere. DA DA DA DUMMMMMMMM. CRASH!  This limping must be looked at.

Bigger DA DA DA DUMMMMMMMM. CRASH! IT IS NOT THE OLD KNEE!!!!  Panic sets it. It is the hip. Was JD kicked? Did he fall down the stairs? Did someone play football with the old boy?.... Suppressed chuckle.  Momma gets really mad if she catches me laughing at these questions. Have you met JD?  He is like .... well his nick name is King of all puppies everywhere all the time. Nobody would dare do anything to his majesty, but kiss his royal tuchus.

Just the same... X-rays had to be taken. Momma's OCD quest for understanding took her in some very dark corners of the interweb. Brrrrr. She talked to Dr R who discussed the 3 possible...scenarios.

1. It is a bruised hip- BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME. No surgical intervention, anti inflammatory meds and time.

2. A dislocation...3. or a broken hip. The correction comes with surgery and only with surgery... and when surgery fails... removal of the leg is the ultimate option. {THIS IS WHAT THEY CALL AN OPTION?????? WHAT THE WOOF?!}

Yes I heard it.  The loud thud and crash was momma's heart dropping to the ground and her soul crashing into a wall. Given JD's dramas of late, you know that all she heard was that " ultimate option."

Let me translate that into applied behavior. Momma is OCD. When in crisis and when unable to do anything else... apparently cleaning is imperative. Yes world, our toilets have been steam cleaned.

JD got kissed every 3 minutes. Got carried everywhere like he was made of crystal....and,,,the royal pain in the tuchus got insane meals...hand fed... while momma emotionally beat herself for not realizing that it was his hip not his knee. And daddy did not help when he asked her if she was absent the day they lectured on differentiating knee from hip injuries in veterinary school. Sarcasm... momma is a lawyer, not a vet...

Of course, the who fan damily worried about that boy.  Well after a rough night [for me- because that momma tossed in bed like she was romaine in a bowl or dressing] off JD went for X-rays.

He is fine. He has a bruised hip. Yeaaaa! No really, Yeaaaa.  I got my momma back. And the daddy too! And the royal pain in the tuchus is once again mine to torture.

But, if caca like this is going to keep happening, I demand better terms in my contract. I am a Bichon, I am meant to love and comfort. And I am good at that job.  But I will be damned if I spend any more time, trying to keep momma from disintegrating emotionally.  It is like holding jello between chopstiks.... NUFF said.,

WHY NOT????

 Why can't I have one?  Why?
Ignoring me is NOT the answer momma.  If you are going to deny me my one and only [for today] fondest wish, you OWE me some kind of explanation.

 I met the little white furry blurry pink nosed thingie., It is so cute I want to bring it home.

 I watched it. It is behind the glass ! How awful. It needs to me rescue it. It needs me to bring it home.


 I will love it, and play with it and chase it and snuggle it and let it run freeeeeeeeeeee!

Look at it momma, it is ever so cute! It matches me!  I think is it a Bichon -mouse!

Why not???? Momma you are a hypocrite. No- "because I said so" is not a valid answer.
You run this house like you are a dictator. Yes I am pouting. I want the furry thing!
No more kisses.  I am done with you.


'vie.....
who asked you to clean up after it? Make daddy do it!
I am not talking to you.
I am done.

Trauma or Drama?

New game. We have invented for Momma. Shhhhh we are trying this so she does not snap and lose what is left of her little mind.

It has been a tough April already.  And it followed a very tough March. So... go along and play along

The game is simple. Why it is called TRAUMA or DRAMA will become self evident.

We have had a lot of both at our house lately.  This "game" is designed to give momma a sense of perspective so she does not crumble. Bottom line, the cupcake needs to toughen up.

Everything in the house is covered in a cloud of fine dust. Blame the carpet removal? Blame the hardwood floor install? Blame the painter, the carpenter...the granite installers.... Blame everyone! Cough, clean, cough...
Trauma or drama?________________


Shower doors delivered without handles.
Shower door installed improperly because the handles were not there.
Shower doors re-installed... Initial time line as projected 10 days. Actual time line... 5 weeks.
Trauma or drama?________________


Granite gets installed...almost.,.. Two pieces did not match. Ohhhhh so many phone calls.
Installer agrees with momma. 4 days later... it gets done...
Trauma or drama?________________


Sink and faucet issues. Hoomans have some real issues about matching and fitting in and blah blah..
All I know is that things had to be returned, exchanged, re set, and ultimately it got done, but not without many many discussions, measurements, talks, phone calls...
Trauma or drama?________________


Momma gets the flu... Down for the count.... She is post op and none of us want to go through more surgery with her so we all hold our breath and listen to her breathing... It's hard not to laugh at her gravely voice. She is clueless... she is trying to "clean up" and is upset she is woozy and dizzy. Don't say it... I was thinking the same thing, I know, right?
Trauma or drama?________________


Cosmo. Crazy boy. Crazy like a fox, he has her completely won over. He steals our food if he is given a chance. I am calling this one. TRAUMA. but you can vote.
Trauma or drama?________________


JD's senior exam is not "pristine" That boy needs a diet change and some immediate help with his liver function. Momma is gutted. Daddy gets lectured on what will be allowed.
Trauma or drama?________________


JD's recheck shows that things are going better and a little more tweaking with his diet should be all that is needed. Now the woman is looking at our diet! Oh dear... will it ever stop?
Trauma or drama?________________


JD develops what appears to be a funky white spot on his left eye. Momma calls it. And she turns out to be right...CATARACT. Off to Dr Brad.  SURGERY, immediately. Need I ask?
Trauma or drama?________________


JD comes home poodle pawed, with a cone of shame, and looking ever so PATH ethic...
Trauma or drama?________________


JD gets drops and the boy refuses to eat until he is de-coned.  Nice play JD.
Trauma or drama?________________


JD hates the cone, can't navigate well up and down steps, Takes a misstep and starts limping.
now we have... JD in a cone, post up, poodle pawed and limping.... Momma falls completely apart. She has been carrying him up and down and that boy gives orders like a pro.
Trauma or drama?________________


Finally the cone comes off, but the recovery is derailed when MR JD somehow injures his surgical site and starts winking and keeping his eye closed. Momma loses it.
Trauma or drama?________________


JD is back in a cone, post up, poodle pawed and limping and not able to get groomed... and today we are headed back to Dr Brad, Hopefully the new eye drops have fixed the damage,  If not... ther is a shot they give in the eye.... Oh dear.... that will be DRAMA.....!!!!!!! Wonder if he can put something in momma's head and fix her.,. Every time she looks at him, she chokes up.
Right now he could ask for and probably get anything he wants from her.
Trauma or drama?________________


The Wendy came in from outside with some weird stuff on her butt. From far away momma thought it was blood. This is what we call jumping to delusions. Turned out to be a piece of red string, who knows where it came from. But the way that woman reacted, she went int ER mode. Before she even got close to the Wendy, there were warm compresses and meds and...phones and er numbers... I say momma is losing it... Drama...drama... drama. And after it was all over... and she know everything was fine... that woman fell apart!  BUT EVERYTHING WAS FINE!  If only she made sense, know what I mean????
Trauma or drama?________________


Cosmo takes off when fired gardener shows up on Easter day trying to make amends for never showing up to do the clean up etc etc... By take off , I mean that Cosmo actually ran out and had to be chased....  Soooo Cosmo is a runner... Moi?  Nahh why would I ever leave?  The Wendy, JD and I know better. Oh yuh, I forgot. JD did that running bit once.,. ended up in a squad car with a Chesapeake police officer and momma was ...barefoot, in a nightgown all over the neighborhood crying...


Old gardener is OUT.. New gardener has been scared straight by momma re OUR safety.
Those 3 minutes Cosmo was running...
Trauma or drama?________________


Finding out that some rodent chewed a hole in the drain hose of the dishwasher under the house and caused a leak....AGAIN....
Trauma or drama?________________


Momma spotted a chameleon in the garage and freaked out...that thing ran out like his butt was on fire.
Trauma or drama?________________


Weird beeping noise that drove momma crazy for about 3 hrs... stooopid roomba stuck under the couch...Trauma or drama?________________


I better stop, I am depressing myself... this is a mere smattering of what has been going on.  There has been lots more.  But that is life.  I am ever so grateful I chose tail over thumbs.  I only have one responsibility and I do take it seriously I  twirl my tail and take care of my hoomans with wags and licks and fluffytude.


I am hoping things settle down. WAYYYYY down.  I am owed an Easter and a Passover. Momma is healthing up. She is not wheezing and she is back drinking her 'puccino which means her yucks are over,

I leave the trauma or drama to the momma... and daddy... by default...

Tasty Tuesday? Mhhh.... you judge.


So, this will be a bit of a "controversial" post, but hey, I am all about the "honesty factor".

Sometimes, food is not the delicious you want.  Sometimes, what you want is more of a ... bonding [?!- good buzz word! let's go with it] moment.  And what better bonding can be had than a slow, delicious semi chew of one of your favorite hoomans... He has to trust you and you have to show him you can be trusted not to really chew off anything. See? BONDING.

Yes, I am submitting it as a Tasty Tuesday post!  Why not? 
Oh give me a break Everybody has a fav chewing hooman.  We don't hurt them!  It is more like , you know... a gentle nibble that lets them know that they are loved and that they are... delicious.

My Adam happens to be my fav delicious hooman, I could spend all day nibbling on him.




Oh go away. You are just jealous. My hooman is delicious. Occasionally momma's hand taste yummy, but her hands are bony and she does not stick around to be a chew toy. 

OH, I forgot... this is a CALORIES free treat! 

Do you have a fav chew hooman?  One you will admit to?

Just between us?

Do tell.

And Adam... I have been on a DIET.  I miss you,
You can chew on me when you get here.

Yes it is MONDAY!



it is also PASQUETTA!  and yes...until Saturday...it is Passover.  So, Buona Pasquetta, and Happy Passover to one and all.

Lots is going on in my house. Lots of smells, lots of foods, lots of "traffic".

I really believed that they were all too busy to pay attention to us four leggeds. So, in my own "opportunistic" self, I decided to carpe diem and I proposed a  brilliant plan of action to "liberate" some goodies...  The UNDER THE TABLE committed was really not as receptive as they should have been. They are just very lackadaisical about stuff like that.

Including the Cosmo in such a plan would have been a sure disaster. That boy is all kinds of crazy. He would have gotten us caught and convicted without even getting a nibble.

Confronted with apathy, I was left with only one choice. ACT ALONE. and ACT ALONE I  DID.

You see... the pictures. You see my bravery and brilliance. Yea, unfortunately I was "caught" by the momma herself who is forever reaching for tissues and that reach was along my path... Nuff said.

Sniff. I should call her that.  She is better, She seems to be getting over her flu, which has now been downgraded to "just" a nasty cold, Sniffles, Whiffles. Wheezes. Coughs. Yes, you get it. Along with a super deep gravely voice that makes her sound like a tabacchy chewing sailor, the woman is a cacophony of sounds.  A veritable Migna Watata. [sorry inside joke, for all Asmarini] All she is missing is the umbrella, And how I did not hear her... I don't know.  I guess I was focused. Too focused.

Look, I love those little buttery dinner mints. LOVE THEM. I saw a whole package of them I figure I would get it down and... share?!

"Sniff" herself let me get close enough  for her to take pics, and the, the selfish woman, snatched up the package and put it on the high counter completely out of my reach.  Seriously. 

Deep breath. Yes I was angry. Yes, I let her know. I think I quoted Kanye a few times... Hey, I wasn't looking to make sense, I was going for impact and inscrutability! 

But Sniff just reached for another tissue and moved on. Sigh.  At least I will not have to live with regrets.  I tried, Had I succeeded, I would have happily lived with remorse.

Nahhhh, remorse nothing.

Hey do you have any butter mints you can send me???
