MY NAME IS GRUMP

Hello. My name is Grump. I’m a pit-bull terrier, now 7 years old, spotted brown and white. Quite handsome, if I do say so myself! I met my human when I was just a little guy. I was tussling with my brothers and my one little sister and suddenly there it was – this new smell. I wandered over to get a... Sign in to see full entry.

24 LITTLE HOURS...

I will stick these last few weeks into a steel box and hide them deep, deep in a closet somewhere....but not here. Watching my precious boy deteriorate until I lost him, the constant pressures and harrowing occurrences at the job, my sweet DIL’s obsession to get pregnant and both her and my son’s...

IT IS A SAD DAY IN THE BUSH...

My Smooch was not one of the 40% who made it, although even the vets had to admit that the medications they were stuffing into him in an attempt to heal did as much damage as the disease itself. My poor boy had very low tolerance for drugs. We helped him as long and as best we could, but it was not... Sign in to see full entry.

NIGHT OWL RAMBLINGS

It’s 2:00 AM. I have country music playing (been thinking of Bird all day), the doggies are sleeping; Grump on his couch and Smooch at my feet in my office. I folded the last load of laundry and just finished washing the dishes while beside me Bandit haughtily ate up the treats he demanded (he is a... Sign in to see full entry.

GUESS WHAT I WAS DOING TONIGHT?

Oh yes!! This is a very happy lady, wearing a couple of her Mother's Day gifts (the shirt and the face paint!) and watching my Habs put the Bruins away for game 6! They play for the win of this second part of the series on Wednesday at 7, and I'll be dressed the same. I have an appointment with the... Sign in to see full entry.

ONWARD WE GO!

The week before last I was running out of medication for Smooch, so had the vet’s technician fax the prescription to my regular pharmacy. I noticed the antibiotics were not the same as the ones he had been taking previously, but dosed him anyway starting Friday night. On Sunday morning my doggie... Sign in to see full entry.

EASTER?

Léna - all smiles. Contrary to most years, our family did not get together for Easter holiday. I heard nothing from my youngest son and the Rug rats, not a surprise – they are back with the DIL; my daughter and her BF were working in their recently purchased apartment block, trying to get it ready...

MIND OVER MATTER?

I’m wondering if I am just impatient...or is Smooch’s illness really taking too long to heal? I hate giving him such strong doses of cortisone and antibiotics for this length of time. It can’t help but play havoc with his immune system, which is already not strong. This week’s blood test showed only... Sign in to see full entry.

BEDTIME

One B of a thunderstorm happening here right now, and I have two very scared loving pit-bulls curled up to my feet as close as they can get, and a kitty hiding under the blankets on my bed – one can only see his big eyes peering out as the big BOO-BOOOM shakes the whole house, competing with the...
