Hello folks! With spring fast approaching, mom & dad decided to move my yearly vet visit forward a bit. So a couple of weeks ago, I visited the friendly vets for a checkup. They said I'm in good health and they updated some of my shots. I also got some bloodwork done to rule out nasty heartworm (I'm free of it!).

But the most important part is that I got chipped! My humans say it's useful in case I get lost, because even if I lose my wallet (er, my collar) I can still be traced back to them.

Of course I'd be able to return home by myself (I did it once and my humans were a bit hysterical about it) but I think it's a good precaution. And despite dad's worries, it didn't hurt a bit! even though they used a big needle.

So now I'm a sort of cyberdog with a serial number, and I'm enjoying the last of the snow before spring arrives. Though there's still a lot of snow on the ground! yay!


Eternity and a day.

A whole month has gone by without my dear Tallulah. Day by day the sadness of her loss has turned into nostalgic remembrance and today recalling our time with her has become more warm memories than painful reminders of her absence. Still, it's not easy. I know we, as a family, will forever miss her.

So, our family has been adapting to new spaces and rhythms. Our comings and goings had obviously adapted to our new reality. In many ways it opens new possibilities: I've been hearing a lot of talk about a doggy trailer for bicycle escapades, but -you see- I've never been an only-dog and I can tell you it is nothing but hard work.

My new responsibilities include being extra attentive of my humans, protect them and bark like crazy at the slightest sound. I mean, before no one would even dream on approaching a house where mighty Tallulah lived, no matter if she was a sweet and kind girl, her size alone would make you think carefully your every move. But now I need to do extra noise to let everyone know I'm in charge and, somehow, Mom is kind of unappreciative of this.

In any case I do have big paws to fill and I am really trying my best to follow the teachings my dear big sis told me: using up to a 70% from the space of a king size bed; drooling over the kitchen table (even if I have to stand only on my hind legs); loud snoring; "purring" when being scratched behind the ears and of course, bringing joy and happiness to my pack. Puff! Though work indeed!

So while we get into the hold of things anew, I'll be sure to keep you Dogster pals posted, and the relentless spirit of Tallullah alive within me.
Be barking you soon!


Tallulah dearest

Stop all the clocks, cut off the morning walk,
Prevent the cat from meowing with a tuna can,
Silence the passing cars, walk with muffled steps,
For I mourn her so, my Tally, my sister & friend.

Let birds circle chirping sadly overhead,
Scribble in the snow the message 'She is Dead'.
Put crepe black bows round your collars today,
Let the squirrels look for their nuts at ease this day.

She was my North, my South, my East and West,
My morning walk and my lazy-pal rest,
My noon, my midnight, my bark, my howl;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.

The treats are not wanted now; put away every one,
Pack up the mountain and dismantle the woods,
Pour away the lake and the river; no use for them now,
For she can no longer come along, to enjoy them, no more.

After "Funeral blues" by W. H. Auden
