Welcome

I’ve had the cat welcome sign for a while, and just found the dog one on Ebay. I don’t know why I bought it, the cat one hardly ever sells – in fact, I’ve given about three times more of them as gifts, than have sold – but I couldn’t …

Let me go easy

When I got divorced, in 1999, I did volunteer work by fostering dogs with Gainesville Pet Rescue for a while. I fostered maybe 40 or 50 dogs over about a year, and each and every one of them got a loving home… but only one that I completely fell in …

Playing catch-up

I got a lot of yarn winding done last week, in spite of Tiny Kitten “helping” me. I wish I could tell you that she was absolutely well-behaved, but as I was pulling yarn out this morning to wind, I find that she chewed through a skein of yarn that …

Randomosity

Tiny Kitten has decided there’s something she likes more than chewing yarn (but not more than chewing plastic)… snuggles! The funny thing is, though, that you can’t make her snuggle. She’s got to come to you on your own terms, usually when you’re a few minutes away from standing up …

MOAR BEBEH HEADS

Who would have thought these would be so popular? I guess I didn’t really think about who my friends are when I thought “now here’s a wacky idea of something I should make.” I did just buy a second baby head mold like this one, so that I can make …

Still a two-dog family

When it came down to making the decision yesterday, I just couldn’t do it. Yes, she’s in pain. Yes, she sleeps all the time. Yes, her legs sometimes fall out from underneath her. Yes, her coat looks horrible no matter what I do. No, she doesn’t get up to greet …

It’s not just about the lizard

Yesterday when I pulled out of the Wild Iris parking lot, turned onto University, and then stopped at the red light… I noticed this little guy. That always makes me sad. I feel like such a homewrecker. Like, somewhere, now, there’s a lizard family whose mommy or daddy won’t be …

Puppies, underfoot

After …. what, four years? How long have we had Backup Dog? She’s finally realizing that the growly noise Old Dog makes when another animal is trying to snuggle her isn’t really a growl, but Old Dog’s attempt at the purr that the cats do. They’ve been snuggling a lot …

Saturday, March 31st

Saturday I folded two weeks worth of clean laundry, and how sad is it when that’s an accomplishment? Better (or maybe worse/more sad) is that I cleaned off the top of my dresser, threw away pocket shmutz that dated back more than a year, found about $4 in change, cleared …
