Days in the life of a Good Dog.

My Tail of Devotion for Eponine

If possible, you grow more dear
to me with every passing year.
Your eyes are filmed with telltale glaze
but hold me still in loving gaze.
Your face is frosted, just a touch,
and so I love you twice as much
as yesterday, for in our prime,
perhaps we never felt the time
as now we feel the push of days
and vow to hold them close, always.
With you I share a bond so pure
that ever will our hearts endure.
Not even our mortality
can keep your love from reaching me,
so when I slumber, if you've gone
your legacy would carry on
in dreams we'll romp, in spirit play
'till we should meet again someday.
And this I vow, if I should go,
I'll be with you, and you will know.
And always find, through any dark,
you'll know true friendship by its bark.

This is a special Tail of Devotion

My Poor Neglected Doggy Diary

I do not write in here very much. It's because I'm so busy! I have a lot to do; chasing the squirrels away, being a good watchdog and letting my people know EVERYTHING that is going on around the neighborhood, getting my belly rubbed, asking to have a toy thrown so I can shake it, and maximizing my sun-ray intake by napping near all the windows so that I can store enough heat to keep all this furry energy going.

Mommy had to get a new job in another town. So, I get to stay with Grandma, in the house I grew up in, until Mommy's new house is ready. I like Grandma's house very much. Sometimes I miss Mommy but she comes to see me on the weekends. Mommy says that when we get our new place I will have my very own little yard. That means I will not have to share with Grandma's cranky terrier. Ha Ha!

Whoops, I hear a squirrel, gotta run!


I'm Seven!

Mommy says I'm a big girl!

My birthday was May 19, and now I'm seven whole years old. I've been with my mom longer than a lot of her person friends.

My birthday wish is that we go for more walkies. Mom doesn't take me on so many lately, something about the weather not cooperating.


Another day, a bit uneventful but still good.

My ears are getting much better. The cream is gross but it does the trick!

Yesterday we had some big dogs pester us on our walk. Mom was upset because she doesn't want me to get hurt, so she posted on the forum for advice.

Today I napped most of the day, and mom has just been on the computer. Boooring. I don't know what's up with her today. She hasn't wanted to do anything. She said something about this weekend being her "stress free" time, something about a thing called "college exams" but I don't know what any of that means. I think she needs to take me to the park! :D


When mom has a birthday, I get walkies.

So mom's birthday was yesterday. I didn't like it so much, because it meant that she left me behind and went to grandma's without me. *pout* Then, mom's friend Tiffany came over, because mom hadn't seen her in almost a year. So those two hung out for most of the day today, and again, no me! It was pretty sad.

But, to make up for it, mom took me on a super, extra-long walk today. Just us two. Also, my ears are getting better. So, I guess life is good after all.


Ow! My ears!

Today my grandma came over. At first I was really happy because I like when grandma comes to see me, but then she took me in the car (which I hate) to that vet place (which I hate even more).

Doctor gave me cream for my ears. She says it's maybe allergies that's making me scratch them so raw. The cream is s'posed to make it better, but if it doesn't work in a few days I have to have antibiotics (yuck!).


A lazy day.

Maybe it's a little selfish, but I like days when mom feels sick. When she stays home from school, I get to be by her side all day! I would like to go take a walk, but it's better to just sleep all day right here at mom's feet than have to stay home and play all day without her.

I scratched my ears a bunch more and now they've got scabs in them. Mom says I probably have a fungus infection like a dog she knew with the same problem, and that I have to go to the vet and get gunk put in my ears. I *hate* the vet! :( Mom won't let me scratch my ears. They itch! This whole situation is just unfair.

Mom's been kind of stressed out from school and it makes me very upset. Something called "finals" is making her feel bad and I'm very sensitive, so it bothers me too. I stay by her side all the time. I don't let her out of my sight, not even to go to the bathroom.

I would love mom even if she never gets a "diploma." I don't know why she even wants one, they don't sound good to eat or play with. I wish she'd feel better, even if she doesn't get to stay home anymore.
