Thursday Post: Take 2!

Well nothing like working on a post for naught.



Oh well.

Anyway, here’s a poem I wrote yesterday.

Hope it will do for today.



There was a dog left home alone
With not even so much as a bone
He checked all around
For a treat to scarf down
But was heartbroken when he found none.


Sometimes it don't pay to get up in the morning.

Sometimes it don’t pay to get up in the morning.

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  4. Oh Rumpy you are cute! I hate it when you can’t find a chew too! I like tripe stick best. But I am only allowed them on occasion, because my person say the SMELL.

  12. Thank you so much Rumpy for the post about Mary. It was already down but I saw you did one. We are still awaiting the Vet care clinic’s approval of the home we found for her. They have the phone number but so far no word. Keep that post. If they don’t like the farm environment she will go to, Mary will need to continue her search. Hope you find another bone paw pats, Savannah

    • I don’t think so Savannah. I will save that for those of you who are in the know. It’s frustrating to work in a post only to find out its wasted effort.

      Posted by rumpydog | July 18, 2013, 8:36 AM
      • I posted about Mary as soon as I knew she had a willing adopter. The vet clinic has to approve it and so far they are dragging their feet. Sorry you feel you wasted time, I know you are very busy. And Mary still does not have a confirmed home so that post would still have been helpful should they not let her go as it is a place where she would be indoor and outdoor

        Posted by Savannah's Paw Tracks | July 18, 2013, 8:41 AM
      • Anyone who might have been interested would not have pursued it once they read all the comments about the cat having a potential home. It would not be cool to do that to people who would possibly take her in.

        Posted by rumpydog | July 18, 2013, 9:29 AM
      • So I “should” have not said a word, right? My mistake, guess I have ruined her chances now. I certainly won’t try to help again as I clearly don’t know how. Again, sorry you wasted your time. If you have other advice for me, my email is lcrodgers at sbcglobal dot net

        Posted by Savannah's Paw Tracks | July 18, 2013, 9:34 AM
      • And I’m sorry you are taking this personally. This isn’t about you. Animal adoption is an emotional experience and people will perceive me as callous to post a plea for a home for Mary, get them all excited, then tell them never mind. And yes, my time is limited and I feel it is valuable.

  19. Aw poor you Rumpy. We know how you feel though, we’re left home alone a lot too. And that was a really great poem – we wish we could write like that!

  27. What a wonderful poem! I think you deserve a big juicy bone for that one!

  28. Terrible the way we starve our dogs. Beating, starving them, making them go OUTSIDE in the RAIN. I’ve noticed Nan is beginning to waddle a bit. She still says she’s starving.

  29. Very cute. I saw the poem yesterday.

    Posted by BJ Pup | July 19, 2013, 10:02 PM
  30. Then Jen saw Rumpy’s dire plight–
    All alone with no treat in his sight.
    So she dropped him a carrot,
    That has healthy merit;
    Poor Rumpy just ran from the fright.

    (…penned in collaboration with Ling Ling, Oreo, and Tilly Tot, in answer to Rumpy’s poem up top,)
