What fun that Rita's Blog is Diary of the Day! Hi, everyone! Rita celebrated her 12th birthday last week. Today we're having a snowstorm, but Rita loves snow, and just had an energetic run around the yard of her human BFF Keith who lives across the street from us.

Today marks Rita's 12 birthday, and I'm pleased to be able to report that she remains in excellent health and spirits. She's a little gray here and there, but her step is still springy, she chases squirrels with abandon, and her love of her people and dog friends is unabated!


Rita is 11!

Today is Rita's 11 birthday. Unlike many dogs, her actual birthday is known. I often wonder how her mom, Mattie, and her nine siblings are doing. Rita is doing well. She is very energetic and loves people and most other dogs. She's had bouts with diarrhea and urinary tract infections, but thankfully so far nothing more serious. Like most dogs, she's getting lumpy as she ages, so I have to watch those carefully. Rita is a GOOD DOG and she is loved by me and many others! Happy birthday, Sweetpea!


New Dogs on our Street!

Dogs come and go on Como Ave. Sweet neighbor dog Brownie passed away during a walk a few months ago, but I can happily report that her mom is now the proud guardian of Amy, a beautiful and very sweet 1 year old shar-pei and who knows what else mix! Amy is a little shy, having been in a situation where she had been attacked by other dogs, but is coming out of her shell and is a joy and delight! Terrier mix Dexter has moved in next door, and is a maniacal ball of fire. Mix breed Wellington arrived down the street recently when her dad bought a house; she and Rita are getting to know one another a bit cautiously, but with good behavior on both sides. Sadly, neighbor dog Waldo, who we've known from a pup, will be moving away shortly as his parents have bought a house. But the dogs are out on Como Avenue!

A terrible tragedy happened on our street last week when beloved neighborhood dog Brownie collapsed and died during her walk. Much love and sympathy to her human, Nancy, and her best dog buddy Bean.

Tomorrow, Rita will be 10. Interestingly, there were 10 puppies in her mother Mattie's litter. Rita is happy and healthy. She has a bit of grey starting to show on her muzzle and face, but she is still active and graceful, though she slows down a bit quicker when playing hard. Rita is the light of my life and has many, many friends in our neighborhood.


Friends Moving!

Rita's tiny buddies the Micropups are moving soon to a new place. Ella the rat terrier and Oliver the chihauhua have become good friends of Rita's and we'll miss them! Let's hope some new friendly dog or dogs moves into their old place.

Rita is 9 today, and so are her 9 brothers and sisters, who I hope are all doing well, as well as her mom, Mattie. Rita is well, healthy, and happy, and showing no signs of slowing down! She had a bit of a health emergency last weekend when she ate some bark, but the folks at OSU watched her overnight and gave her an IV and immediately returned her to normal conditions! Rita truly is a fine dog and the light of my life.


Meeting New Dogs in the Neighborhood!

New dogs are always arriving in Clintonville! Sukie, a mixed breed about 15 pounds smaller than Rita, has moved into Milton's old digs next door, and new door to him is Oscar, a happy go lucky pit bull mix. Rosie is a basset pup who lives on the next street, along with Dexter, a well-behaved pit bull, both of whom Rita has met. On the other side of our house are existing dog pals the Micropups (aka Oliver and Ella) and Waldo, who are all healthy and happy!

Rita has been enjoying many visits this summer with Keith, her human BFF, who lives across the street from me.


Some Dogs Like to Swim, Some Don't!

Rita and I had a very nice time at the park one evening last week, and we met a man named Dave and his very beautiful young doberman Abby. Dobermans apparently don't particularly like to swim! Rita, with her powerful Lab genes, was swimming maniacally, but all Abby would do was prance around in the shallows watching her and probably wondering what on Earth she was doing in that deep water!
