Time for a Change (aka Midlife Crisis Take 2)

October 16th, 2013 · 1 Comment · Animals on my planet, Stuff

Thomas Edison said of his initial attempts to invent the light bulb “I have not failed. I have tried 10,000 things that won’t work.” I haven’t tried that many things, but the point is I haven’t given up the search for what will work and by “what will work” I mean what work I can […]

Mom’s Day

May 21st, 2012 · No Comments · Animals on my planet, Stuff

Early Sunday morning I heard the tell-tale heaving of a puppy’s stomach. I jumped to move Betty to the hardwood floor and there she presented me with the contents of her stomach for Mother’s Day. Then she did it a couple more times, but by the time breakfast rolled around she was fine and I […]

I enjoy being a girl

February 21st, 2011 · No Comments · Animals on my planet

I never had penis envy, sorry Dr. Freud. I never wished I was a boy and never wanted to be a man. That isn’t to say I am a girlie-girl, I have just always thought that God got me right. And then there are times when I am truly thankful for my gender; most of […]

A weighty issue to consider

September 8th, 2010 · No Comments · Animals on my planet

You know how a little extra weight can creep up on you? One day all your favorite clothes fit well and then without any significant dietary change they begin to feel snug. Its not until you actually step on the scale that you realize that you have put on ten pounds with no effort at […]

Identity crisis

July 26th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Animals on my planet

Growing up we had a beagle named Max. Max came with my stepfather and had been his companion during his stint as a New York City cab driver, so I imagine it was a bit of a culture shock when out of nowhere this woman and her kid infiltrated his pack. Maybe pack isn’t the right […]

Squirrels and bunnies and mice, oh my!

March 28th, 2010 · 4 Comments · Animals on my planet, Venting

We live in the city so I am always surprised at the wildlife issues we are confronted with. To be fair we don’t live downtown, we live in area that is predominantly single family homes with yards, but it is the city none the less. Last year a family of squirrels took up occupancy in […]

Avatar left me a little blue

March 18th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Animals on my planet, Stuff

After much procrastination, Bob and I finally saw Avatar this weekend. We unintentionally waited long enough to avoid the crowds and in doing so limited the selection of theaters that were still showing it. There were only three theaters in the city that still had it in 3D and we had been told that we […]

Christmas – its really for the kids.

December 27th, 2009 · No Comments · Animals on my planet

Santa brought Goose and Mike brand new fleece toys. They were very excited and once they had traded toys several times with minimal growling, they set about to the real work of disemboweling their new toys. First, locate and remove all squeaking objects. Second, pull out all stuffing and separate limbs from torso. Lastly, diligently […]

Forgiveness

December 9th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Animals on my planet

I grew up with dogs, lots of dogs. First was Max, then Missy, then Lily, Dobbie, JB and Newsboy. Later came Annie, Copper, Cougar and Jenny to name just some. Seriously there were many dogs. And each time one of my furry brothers or sisters spent quality tooth-time with one of my treasures be it […]

The skinny

November 12th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Animals on my planet, Stuff

So last week I declare my gratitude to all (both) of my readers and to my blog itself and then….. crickets. Nothing. So by way of an update: There was talk of Goose’s weight. Someone (Bob) thought that there was too much of it. I maintained that his torso is just larger than his legs […]
