Radar–The Mighty Defender

Thought I would join Jess’s Dogs of Blogs photo challenge today with a couple of pictures of my own doglet, Radar. He is a rescue companion, but not certain if he was rescued or if he rescued me. A mix of several breeds, Radar probably has some Miniature Pinscher and a dash of Dachshund plus… Continue reading Radar–The Mighty Defender

What I’ve Lost

People, I’ve lost people…and lovable, loving pets. Friends, family, enemies (hopefully), doglets. Some I have run from screaming with delight. Some I’ve neglected. Others have deserted me, unexpectedly. How dare them! No one is to blame for the terminated relationships, maybe. Perhaps it is a mutual decision, perhaps it is lack of attention on my part… Continue reading What I’ve Lost

End of an Era

An era ended this week. My 18-year-old doglet made her final journey to the vet, and drifted out of this lifetime in the arms of my sister. Paula volunteer to be Chili’s carrier for this trip since I’m out of the country. And I am grateful for her offer. Chili, as you may know, was… Continue reading End of an Era

A new boy in my life

A new boy is in my life. To be clear, no old boy is being replaced, in case you were wondering. This youngster is challenging my tranquility and consumes way, way, way more time than I had anticipated. Babies demand constant oversight, and at 76 my attention span is not what it once was, to… Continue reading A new boy in my life

An Intruder

Chili’s sharp bark startled me awake in time to see the lights bouncing off the bedroom wall. I laid there, watching, wondering why a car was in my driveway. Maybe turning around.  I slipped out of bed, and crept to the window in the darkness. My mind raced as I peeked between the slats in… Continue reading An Intruder

6 Pounds of Love

A sharp, piercing cry, and she was gone. My 6-pound loveable doglet Jasmine died. Suddenly. Unexpectedly. Quickly. And I hate it. She was an adorable little princess. Full of energy. Lively. And an insistent ‘hold me all the time’ companion. The blow of grief struck my heart as I held her limp body and cried… Continue reading 6 Pounds of Love
