Getting your "angries out"

It is ok to get angry, but it is not ok to hurt someone else with words or touch when you are angry! Today a client and I practiced getting our "angries out" and she taught me how to use the bop bag to do so. It was so fun! I was smiling and wagging my tail. 

I bet you are wondering what could make me angry. Well for starters, sometimes it is just a bad day and the little things get to me. Other days, like today, I get angry because Abbey is sick and I don't know what to do to help her. I know I shouldn't get angry, but it is frustrating. I love my sister so much but I don't know how to help! Tara and I had to run to the vet in between clients to pick up more medicine to try for Abbey as she yet again relapsed. I heard Tara tell the vet that it is every 7-10 days. They are hoping this medicine works, because if it doesn't they have to do something Tara called "invasive tests". 

It was a long day as I had five clients all by myself...well with Tara there too as Abbey is on sick leave again!

Night, night....

From our Aunt Ezzie...

Love, laugh, sing, play.
If you want to heal your mind,
do these things every day,
and there will be very little left to heal.


The following was found posted very low on a refrigerator door.
Dear Dogs and Cats:

The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your food.

The other dishes are mine and contain my food.. Placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack.  Racing me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me  doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort, however. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other, stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having  tongues hanging out on the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm..

For the last time, there is no secret exit from the bathroom! If, by some miracle, I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge in an attempt to open the door. I must exit through the same door I entered.
 Also, I have been using the bathroom for years - canine/feline attendance is not required.

The proper order for kissing is: Kiss me first, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough.

Finally, in fairness, dear pets, I have posted the following message on the front door:


(1)   They live here. You don't.
(2)   If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. That's why they call it 'fur'-niture.
(3) I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
(4) To you, they are animals. To me, they are adopted sons/daughters who are short, hairy, walk on all fours and don't speak clearly.

Remember, dogs and cats are better than kids because they:

(1)   eat less,
(2)   don't ask for money all the time,
(3)   are easier to train,
(4)   normally come when called,
(5)   never ask to drive the car,
(6)   don't smoke or drink,
(7)   don't want to wear your clothes,
(8)   don't have to buy the latest fashions,
(9)   don't need a gazillion dollars for college and
if they get pregnant, you can sell their children

Abbey's Birthday Celebration....

Well, again, we fall behind on our blog. Thursday was Abbey's sixth birthday, but she ended up getting really sick again and Tara took her back to the vet. We saw all the yummy birthday goodies Tara bought at the Dog Bakery, however the vet said Abbey was on a restricted diet, so Zoey and I had to wait too!

Today we sang Happy Birthday and got our yummy treats! Zoey had never had one and was so excited to get a peanut butter paw with frosting on it. I got one that looked like a birthday cupcake with lots of frosting and sprinkles and Abbey got a carob brownie since she isn't supposed to have wheat right now.

A dog and his baby....

Check out this amazing four legged friend! We love our human baby and would do the same; not all dogs want to hurt children...many of us want to protect!
