I Think I’ve Created a Monster


Sleeping Chihuahuas

Many years ago, when Hubby and I first met, neither one of us had pets. Oh, I’ve had dogs in my childhood. They were always strays. The one we had the longest (and she was the one of the best dogs ever) was Missy. She was still relatively young when she found us – maybe 2 years old – and we had her until she died about 14 years later. But she was the most gentle and loving dog you’d ever meet, part Labrador and part Collie, and you’d only have to fear being licked to death from her. More


Please! No More Pussy!

Feeding CatI think it’s time I talk about my neighbor. I love cats, I really do; I’m just allergic to them. I love dogs – not allergic to them, and hope to get one again some day. In short, I love animals and all sorts of pets. We had a fish not that long ago, but it died – well, it got flushed. Actually, it hadn’t even quite died by the time “the flushing” happened. It was sick, was eventually going to die,¬†and therefore got flushed. It wasn’t an accidental flush, it was an out-right “I know it’s sick and not dead but I’m still gonna flush it” flush. Because fish are cheap. And they can be flushed without clogging the toilet. I just hope I don’t get seriously sick one day … I might be the one getting flushed. But at least I know I’d clog the toilet.

But I digress. More

What’s the deal with these groundhogs?



Groundhogs are cute. They’re furry little things that waddle around burrowing to live and to eat. They mostly eat wild grasses and other vegetation. They predict the length of winter every year and sometimes even make time stand still (remember Punxsutawney Phil and Groundhog Day?). But when they start invading your back yard, burrowing huge holes in your garden, and eating your lettuce, they’re not so cute any longer.
