Isn’t She Lovely?

A twentieth fine August earth day Occasioned a comical mirth day …..I played with my sister …..So happy…I kissed her. Sweet Maezi – you’re FOUR – Happy Birthday!

Spring Fling – Maezi, guest blogger

…so…we’re not supposed to head down the hill.  In fact, it is expressly forbidden.  I don’t know what got into Auggie.  Or me, for that matter.  All I know is that it was a glorious day & there were tasty aromas in the air.  The rain had finally ended & there was a scintillating breeze […]

Who is Rube Goldberg?

And…..what is he doing at my house?  OK, so it’s been raining cats & dogs.  Well, actually, fat, florid, giant, heavy, smattering wet drops.  I haven’t noticed any of the cats, possums, birds, raccoons…anybody, really…  ‘Cuz it’s too darned wet to go outside.  In fact, I refused.  We won’t discuss the ramifications of that, except […]

céad míle fáilte

There once searched a young dog in green ‘Midst the flowers betwixt and between. …..Though tales he’d been told, …..Of a pot full of gold, He discovered a wild Irish Queen. A hundred thousand welcomes from your 100% bone-a-fide Irish bard – consorting with druids, in touch with the leprechauns & full of the blarney: […]

The Molar of the story is…

I was feeling a little woozy, I gotta say.  I didn’t really know how much that darned tooth hurt until I didn’t have it any more.  Plus, the drugs they give you to go home on are pretty good.  So I spent the afternoon drowsing & dreaming. . . Maezi actually didn’t bug me or […]

The Tooth Fairy

or…how my triple root tooth went bad.  Bad tooth!  Bad!  It all started with the nylabone gnawing I think.  Oh, how I just love a good chew.  Anyway, at some point, apparently, I cracked my front molar.  Not a slab fracture like Shaanti had, but a vertical crack all the way up. My Mom was […]

Today is my birthday!

Eight blissful, furry years… Ya know, when people say, “It’s a dog’s life”, they are just jealous.  Because, let me tell ya.  Today, on my 8th birthday, I got to sleep in late, had a little breakfast, played some games, chased Maezi, & then had a nap. Then, I played some games, had a mani-pedi, […]

Happy Cousins & the Laughing Jackal

So last night, we were hanging out with Mom, watching “Dogs 101” about very rare breeds.  I liked the New Guinea Singing Dog, & Maezi liked the Thai Ridgeback – until she didn’t – then she started talking back to it.  She didn’t think they were friendly enough, except for Magic, the one that surfed. […]

A lap dog

A streetwise Siberian Husky Was mangy and flea bit and musky …..One grey eye, one blue …..She was rescued on cue Now she’s sleek cream and brown, almost dusky. . Harmony was emaciated, dirty & hungry for affection.  By the looks of her, she’d been living on the streets for several weeks.  A kind hearted […]

Happy Papi…or not

My sister’s a dog, but so catty Lack of poems may make her more bratty …..She gets yappy on …..Days I rhyme Papillon And she drives me a little bit batty. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Next week’s limerick breed: Siberian Husky
