Rita and I indirectly helped a lost dog get home over the weekend. This was more difficult than it might have been because the dog only had on an out of date license on her collar. This was a very elderly dog that might have gotten in serious problems if she had been lost for long. Thankfully a neighbor recognized her and was able to get her home. Please remember to have a tag with your phone number on your dog's collar! The dog's name helps too.

Let me tell you a short story about a rescued dog named Emma who lives on Rita's street and is a friend of Rita. Emma was found on the coldest day of the year abandoned in a paper bag at the supermarket. She was at the time a tiny puppy - maybe 5-6 weeks, weighing less than a pound. She's losing her baby teeth now, and weighs maybe four pounds - probably close to her adult weight. She'll always be tiny. Thankfully she was found by a person who already had a dog but had room in her heart and home for this tiny foundling. Emma is the happiest dog at the park. To see her maniacally romping with dogs 4-5 times her size is a pleasure. I think somehow she knows she's had a second chance, and her joy is infectious.

Today, Rita is 7. Hard to believe! She was one of 10 puppies of her mom, Mattie, and a travelin' man dad. I hope her siblings and mom are doing as well as she is! She is healthy and happy and always up to new adventures and meeting new friends, human and canine and even feline.


Rita's Christmas

Rita had a good Christmas. She had a new Christmas collar to wear, which she did like a good sport, got some bones, and two new toys. Overall her year was good, in spite of the attack on her during the summer. She has recovered completely and is doing very well and is happy.


Rita Attack Update

A week after the pit bull attack, Rita is doing fine. Her bite wounds are almost healed, and I am pleased to say that her mental balance does not seem to have been harmed - she is as friendly as ever towards people, other dogs, and cats (yes, she likes cats. Sometimes they don't like her!). The owner of the dog that attacked her has fenced his yard so his dogs will not be able to escape and possibly injure another dog or a person.

Rita was attacked by a pit bull yesterday while we were walking. Fortunately she was not seriously hurt but both of us were badly traumatized. If you own a fighting dog it is your responsibility to make sure is properly restrained or confined - this dog was loose.

What Rita Got for Christmas

1. Bobo. Bobo is a pink weiner dog from Petsmart that has TWO squeakers and hence is very popular but Rita can only have it for short periods as it is too frail for her powerful teeth!

2. Star-thing. Star-thing is a cookie-cutter man shape in ballistic nylon, which is very tough and should last, however, Rita destroyed the internal squeaker in one day!

3. Asst. rawhides. Always a good choice!

4. Beautiful new collar in royal purple. Rita now wishes to be addressed as "Your Rita-ness."

My people are breaking up? Why? Why does this happen to me, Rita?

I can't write more. I will curl up in my Ritabox and cry.

Isn't that wacky?! Rita's a hurricane! Woo hoo!

Boy, was I baaad today and it was great! There's a little kitty that keeps coming around our back deck and today I got to meet it! What a fuzzy and silly little thing. I wanted to play, but it kept hitting me in the nose with its paw. I was disobedient and didn't want to come in, but it was worth it to meet the kitty!
