Springtime Walks with Molly

The neighborhood is magical this time of year. Dogwoods, azaleas, and knockout roses are adding splashes of color to an otherwise green world. The photos are from my own yard. I love walking Molly and seeing what’s new… for the most part. Faeries jump, prance, and singon flowering shrubs to welcome spring.Trees sparkle with pixie … Continue reading

Caring for a Dog with Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome

Caring for a dog with CDS is different every day. I started Molly on Selegiline 5 mg on the 10th. I was told it could take a month for changes to become apparent. I thought the meds weren’t helping until she happened to spit out her pill one day and I didn’t notice right away. … Continue reading

Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome. What is That?

Molly has been diagnosed with Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome or CDS. Here’s what little I know so far. Continue reading

Today Things are Different.

Sunday night I played with a pore cleaning torture device I bought a year ago from Rodan and Fields. I thought I’d followed the directions correctly, and my nose looked good afterward. My chin though? It looked like I’d accepted the Triple Dog Dare Challenge and kissed a frozen pole. Last year I would have … Continue reading

Online Dating App Blues

I’m back on the online dating scene. This time I’m trying Match dot com. To say I’m disappointed in the site is an understatement. While at first I was thrilled to see more local men on the site, I soon learned it was because many of them are fake accounts. You know, like this one. … Continue reading

After My Dog Died…

It’s been two days since Buddy died. Wednesday I was in shock. My Fitbit notified me I walked 10,000 steps that day, and almost all of them were from walking around here not knowing what to do. Thursday was a fog. I worked my regular job and even delivered some groceries, mostly to keep myself … Continue reading

Requiem for the Goodest Dog

As I write this I’m sitting on the sofa. Normally Buddy would be lying beside me with his head touching my thigh. But Buddy died today. It’s crazy. We were just at the vet yesterday having a growth on his tail checked out. The vet who saw him said it was no big deal. Buddy … Continue reading

Buddy the Con Artist

Buddy has been trying to jump on the bed and sometimes falling. I bought some steps for him to use to climb up and down the bed, but he refuses to even try to use them. I thought it was because he didn’t know how and have been trying to teach him. It’s mostly been … Continue reading

Sunday Morning and My House Stinks!

Sunday morning walks with Buddy and Biddy Bit (my nickname for Princess Kitty) are my favorite. It’s usually quiet in our neighborhood in the early morning, but Sundays are even more so. There’s just a different feel to the air. It’s less energetic and more peaceful. This morning we heard geese overhead and watched them … Continue reading
