The Holidays are such a crazy busy time of each HY don’tcha think? I tell you, I been chasing my tail, running around. Don’t know whether to sit or go blind trying to get everything done. Guide & assist & generally be of good service. Which I’m not helped out any by being sorta sick & puny myself after my visit to My Spa & Resort & Mymi barking & hacking around here like a cough & cold & flu commercial. Good thing K9s & humans don’t share the same diseases most of the time.
I was quite uncomfortable checking status @ GrandSire’s when I was having trouble controlling my bowels. Todolly embarrassing but @ least I didn’t have to wear a diaper. I got through OK & then we visited my Vet who prescribed a special diet to assist with this most embarrassing situation. So like I’ve been on this special diet for 2 HWs & now things are pretty much back to normal on the part of my part.
Mymi however is another story. My whole routine is shot & we been tweeting GrandSire (who himself isn’t much of a tweeter) & checking status on FB or just phoning in. Can you hear me now? Anyway, not being inclined to ask for trouble, we been keeping up w/GrandSire’s status remotely cause we didn’t want to spread Mymi’s cold & crud to GrandSire or throughout the Pond community. He’s very patient & understanding & doesn’t want to spread the mange either.
Besides, it’s been cold & gray & grim for like ever. Todolly non-characteristic of my state weather patterns. I don’t mind so much cause I got all my fur but Mymi gripes so when the sun don’t shine. She says it’s depressing.
I don’t mind the cold so much but I have missed my walkies, sniffing out the neighborhood & familiarizing myself with the happenings in my community. The last couple of days have been nice & sunny & I hadda drag Mymi along to take proper advantage of the situation.
We met Maggie Retriever @ the Corner Park. Maggie challenged me to chase my ball. I beat Maggie paws down every time. Don’t think Maggie wasm’t a little intimidated by my todal focus & aggressive manner. My ball & I’ll take it & go home if I don’t get my way.
Also met up w/Greenley Bella @ Middle School Park. Greenley Bella is of mixed, yet noble, heritage, Border Collie/German Shepherd. Greenley is young & needs some pointers on this herding bidness which I was happy to give. Just don’t take my ball, Greenley.
Today we met Ginger, an English Springer Spaniel of noble heritage. But I’m all confused w/this naming bidness. Ginger looks like my cuzzin Ca’ani & my cuzzin Ginger is a dog of a todolly different heritage & doesn’t look anything like Ginger or My Cuzzin Ca’ani. I guess you just can’t make snappy conclusions based on a name or label. So confusing.
The Weatherman says it’s gonna be grim & rainy for the next HW so I’m glad we got our neighborhood patrol & communication responsibilities updated. I’ll be searching for Maggie & Greenley Bella & Ginger in the future. OpalK9 OTJ
