Hop-A-Long

My little buddy, once again, has successfully imitated her aging pack, i,e, me and Jim.

She ran or dashed after a squirrel and her back right paw, once again, has her recrowned by me as ” Hobbles McGee”.

She is on an anti-inflammatory from the vet, and is not so much better yet. That means Kasia isn’t mad about potty only walks, at least, not for now.

Stay tuned!

A Bad Saturday Night Date

See my buddy, Kasia?

See her yawning? Why, you wonder?

Well, she spent part of her Saturday night with a skunk.

That’s right. It means old Momma got her magic potion out. Being a seasoned veteran, I use the well-Googled recipe of Dawn, which gets the skunk oil off, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. She’s washed with warm water and a wash cloth, and actually seems to enjoy it. I talk quietly as I wash her, calling her my little Stinkpot, and telling her I love her 😍 either way, and she’ll feel better when she’s cleaner.

Here she is, resting after her big morning wash. Here’s hoping skunks stay away for a while.

Full Moon

Tonight, there’s a full moon in the night sky: I took a picture while waiting for Kasia to come in from the yard.

My girl has come a long way . Don’t get me wrong: she still barks, but as she gets accustomed to folks in the neighborhood, she sits so politely. She actually takes a dog biscuit from the hand of Beth, our postal person. With Zush, that was no problem. I never thought I would see Kasia sociable.

Miracles do happen.

And some more….

IMG_5262Here is Kasia not looking very happy with me, but Jim and I had a date night last night.

The only chance of seeing a first run movie down these parts was a drive away,, so we went off to dinner and then saw The Darkest Hour. It was Gary Oldman staring as Winston Churchill and Kristin-Scott Thomas, of Four Weddings and a Funeral and, later, The Other Boleyn Girl as Clementine Churchill. We both enjoyed the movie, but, unfortunately in the age of #METOO it might get rolled over for Oscar Time. That would be a shame.

Back at the home today, disgust is on Kasia’s face, because it is now a fact that Mom picked up bronchitis on the tail end of here current list of ailments….My girl hates being the health Continue reading And some more….

Life with Momma

Sometimes I can’t help but wonder what is in my little girl’s head.

Sometimes I see her and she is hanging in front of the television, and I swear she is watching it, Usually if I move to my desk, she’ll wander over to see what I am doing, and lay down to keep me company.


I’m not completely dense, though. The photo above is her”wait on me I’m rich.” look. She is done her walk, and wants to go in to see her Dad.

I know my place.

Rolling Around Together

Kasia and I are working through our Zush-less malaise.

It’s not easy, especially on a day like today.

Today was a dreary day and I rolled over and didn’t see my BFF Zush on her bed, as I used to. Kas and I got a start around 9:30 and started our day. We have managed to get some walks in. Funny thing, though, was we have been hanging together on the floor. 

They say all relationships start from the ground up. Kas and I are getting our act together.

Penthouse is the limit! 

Hanging Around with Kasia

Kasia and I were hanging out together today. We came across our neighbor,Dave, and his dog, Petra.

There, for a little while after Zush left us, Kasia didn’t know what to do with herself. After all. all she knew was life with Zush. For a little while, she would wag her tail and make nice to some of the neighbor dogs. Tonight, we saw Dave and Petra and the winds of change came through. Kasia sniffed at her and so did Petra, and then Kasia started growling at her.

So for those of you wondering when a second dog is coming our way, well, we can safely say that not just yet.
