my squirrel friend

my little squirrel friend LOVES walnuts, so everytime she comes around, i offer her a few.


"got any more?"

other squirrels run away when they see me, but not her! she has learned that if she stays, she gets food. BOL

better safe than sorry

remember when bailey fell off the bed last year? let me show you how we’ve been preventing that from ever happening again.
wake up, little bailey. it’s time to rise and shine.


when i peel back the covers, you can see she is harnessed and tethered.


there’s enough leash so she can walk to hubby’s side of the bed but not enough so she can fall off again.


on my side of the bed, i have a safety rail. i also drape a blanket over the top of it so she can’t fall through the gap between the guard and the mattress.


it’s better to be safe than sorry.

our weekend

bailey and i had a very uneventful weekend. i sprained my ankle so hubby put me on "house arrest," which i wasn’t too pleased about, but then he went to michael’s and bought me a big skein of yarn and all was right with the world BOL. bailey loved that we had such a chill weekend and was the perfect nursemaid, staying right by my side the entire time.

i feel the earth move under my feet

i feel the earth move is a song by carole king and yesterday the earth literally did move under my feet. why? because a 6.4 magnitude earthquake hit southern california. (the biggest we've had in 20 years!) it was centered in the mohave dessert and was felt from chico all the way down to mexico. ya, that’s a biggie. for as big as it was, little bailey did not notice it because she was outside with hubby.

"earthquake? what earthquake?"

as for the fireworks, we had a good night. there were a few surprise pops but bailey made it through like a champ.

happy 4th my friends

here we are again at another dreaded 4th of july. it’s not really the day we object to, it’s the fireworks that come with it. specifically the illegal ones that sound like bombs and explode without warning. we are not a fan and they throw bailey into a tizzy. she is a very skittish dog by nature and every little noise makes her jump, so holidays with fireworks are her worst nightmare. fingers crossed for a peaceful evening.

potp request for bee

a few weeks ago something happened to bee when she jumped off the sofa. she appeared to be in a lot of pain so daughter #2 took her to the emergency vet where she was diagnosed with IVDD (intervertebral disk disease). she was given pain medication and was advised to be kept on confined rest for two weeks while she recuperated. fast forward to father’s day weekend, she accompanied her parents on a california visit, with her vet’s permission of course. since her condition was still guarded, i continued with her very strict containment and limited activity.


every time she needed to go outside, i would leash her to help keep her calm and to distract her from wanting to jump or run. and since she’s normally a very active dog that loves to run, we sectioned off our yard with some temporary fencing so she was restricted to only a small area.


she was a pretty good patient while she was here but now that she’s back home in new york, she is going to have to get used to her new normal. because of the IVDD, one wrong jump and she could end up paralyzed. she sure could use some potp right about now.

"thank you"

the nerve #tot

"you aren’t gonna believe what i saw yesterday, on MY patio!"

"A CAT! the nerve of that guy showing up here."

bailey stared him down and when he noticed her, she gave him a piece of her mind. i dare not repeat exactly what she said, but i can tell you, he was read the riot act. BOL
