Do not attempt this

Momma and daddy have been cleaning the house for several days because the youngest human daughter (she is 28) was coming home for a visit and was bring a girl friend with her. So the humans have been mopping, scrubbing and waxing.

Momma decided that she was going to have daddy cook carne asada out on the BBQ grill so this morning she told daddy that he had to clean off the grill. She also told daddy that she had read that a good place to clean the grills is in the kitchen self cleaning oven. Well that seemed like a really good idea because then the oven could do all the work and that would save the humans some elbow grease.

Let me be the one to inform you DO NOT DO THAT - why you ask?

The oven started bellowing smoke from all the grease on the grill. Smoke was pouring out of the oven vents and the door.

Momma - I don't know about this...it sure is getting smoky in here.

Daddy - It's fine, it will stop pretty soon.

Momma - Do you think my oven is on fire?

Daddy - No

Momma - Cough, cough...My eyes are burning, cough, cough.

Daddy - Let it run for a few more minutes.

Momma - I can't breath...

Daddy goes outside and momma stays in the kitchen looking through the glass door on the oven to see if it was on fire.

All of a sudden it seemed like every smoke detector in our tiny house was hollering.

Momma - OMG - fan some of the smoke out.

Daddy - Turn the oven off.

Momma - I can't it will ruin the compute in the oven.

Daddy - Turn the oven off!!!

Momma - Okay - momma turns off the oven.

While the alarms continued to sound, daddy got the big fan and was holding it up towards one of smoke detector and momma was fanning two others with a paper to dispell the smoke.

Momma - Please get the alarms to stop alarming.

Daddy - I'm trying.

In the meanwhile, Puff and I were running around asking the humans to please make that terrible noise stop. Simba and Bay-Ling were no place to be found. After what seemed like hours but was only about 10 minutes, if even that, the alarms finally stopped and the smoke from the oven get less and less.

Momma - well maybe it wasn't a good idea to try to clean the greasy grills in the oven.

Daddy - You think?

Momma - It sure did make a mess in my oven. I'm going to have to clean it tonight.

Daddy - You're kidding right? You're not going to run the self cleaning feature tonight are you?

Momma - Well it has to be cleaned before we can use it again because of all the splattered grease in there.

Daddy - groans and walks away.

Don't worry pup pals, the fire department is only three blocks away and I have their phone number handy - BOL

It's been really hot here. When momma got home from shopping today, she wanted to lay down on the big bed because there is a really nice ceiling fan that cools off the bedroom and we have french doors that open up into the back yard so if there is any breeze it helps to cool down that room.

After the humans ate lunch, momma asked daddy if he wanted to go into the bedroom and watch a movie. Of course Puff and I went running into the big bedroom and asked to be let up on the bed.

Momma picked us up and told us we had to be good and DON"T PEE ON THE BED!!!!

Puff and I played and then we took a nap while the humans watched a movie.

I'm happy to report that there were no accidents on the bed.

Hugs and kisses,

I am deeply saddened by the report of an Ohio Petland employee who bragged about drowning two rabbits on her Facebook entry. The young woman even posed with the two wet and very dead rabbits for a picture. I'd like to ask the young women in the picture why she felt this were something that was okay to do. Would she like to be held in a swimming pool until she could no longer breathe? I suspect not.

Crying tears for the dead bunnies,

Joint relief

I like to lay on the daybed and watch TV. I've noticed a commercial about some liquid that the humans can get to spray in the water bowl for dogs and cats that are having joint problems which is supposed to help them feel and walk better. I'm thinking about ordering a case of it for my momma - BOL

Hugs and kisses,

Nothing too much going on at my house tonight. It's finally cooling down some which is really nice. I'm hoping momma will let me go visit with my bunny sister Arleenton this weekend because she is probably lonely now that she is all alone. I think now that it is cooler, a nice lively game of tag will cheer her up some.

Hugs and kisses,

Sad truth

July 30th 2009 9:08 pm

There was an article in our local newspaper this week regarding the over crowed conditions that our local animal shelter is facing. When a pet is given up for adoption, after being evaluated by the staff, if the animal is deemed adoptable, it is placed in the display area and will remain there for four days. At the end of the four days, if the animal has not been adopted, placed in a secondary rescue facility or foster care, then the animal is put to death. FOUR DAYS!!!!!

Being cute is not a guarantee that your relinquished pet will be adopted because when the dog is locked up in a strange environment, it is scared. Many dogs can not easily adjust to “life in the pound” and will cower in the corner, show signs of aggression, cry, soil themselves and snap of prospective adoptive parents. The majority of these animals will be passed by and there will be no happy endings for them.

The best thing we can all do to resolve this is to have our pets spayed or neutered.

Willow tree

Momma planted a small willow tree in our back yard at the end of summer last year. It lost most of its leaves right after it was planted and momma was worried that the tree was not going to survive. Well it did!!! Puff, momma and I sat under the tree today and enjoyed the wind blowing the willow branches over us as we sat in its shade. Our tree has grown a lot over the one year that it has been here. When it was first planted the branches were not weeping as the tree was still too young. Now the branches touch the ground. Momma wanted to take some pictures of Puff and I under the tree but every time momma got up to go get the camera we followed her so no pictures - BOL.

Hugs and Kisses

Vet visit

I spent most of the afternoon at the vets. I was poked, prodded and manhandled. They took blood and invaded my privacy. Let me tell you, I did not like any of it at all. The absolute worse part was when they went to trim my dew claws, yes, I still have dew claws. The ones on my hind feet tend to grow real fast and curl inward. I don't like to have anyone mess with them. It took two people to trim them today because I would not stand still. To make matters worse the vet told momma that she has to bring me in every 6 weeks for a trim - yuck!!

There is some good news though; my blood work did not find any signs of me being a diabetic. I'm just a very thirsty gal - BOL

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

To Dr. Sierra I go...

I heard momma call Dr. Sierra and make an appointment to find out if I am a diabetic. Mom has told Dr. Sierra that I apparently drink a lot of water and she is concerned that I might be sick. I’m not overweight but for some reason I just can’t get enough water. I stand by the water bowl and lap it down. The doctor is going to do a blood test tomorrow and then momma will finally know if I’m just a very thirsty dog or a sick dog. Dr. Sierra has been insisting that I am just a thirsty dog, let’s hope he is right.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose
