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

Seven Years Ago…

Seven years ago I started this blog. That’s the longest I’ve stuck with anything. I had hoped to monetize it to support my animal rescue habit. Things didn’t quite work out that way. Instead I found an avenue of expression that I enjoyed and was pretty good at, if I do say so myself. The best … Continue reading

Gun Safety and Lots of Dogs

Yesterday I helped man an outreach booth for a group that promotes sensible gun legislation. I enjoyed speaking with people about their ideas of how we can put an end to the gun violence epidemic that is ravaging our country and terrorizing its’ citizens.

Think the food you feed your dog or cat is safe? Maybe. Maybe not. Guess what a news station found in dog food? Continue reading

A Natural Flea/Tick Product that Works!

This is Homer. Homer showed up one day at my mom’s house with a hurt leg. She doctored him up and he’s been with her ever since. That’s been well over 10 years now. Homer prefers being outdoors, which means fleas are always a concern. When I was contacted and asked if I’d like to … Continue reading

It’s Rumpy’s Birthday Month But I’m Not Celebrating

This morning I woke the same way I have for the past few days: clutching one of Rumpy’s old stuffed toys. October is Rumpy’s Gotcha month. He’s been gone for 6 months, but the hurt is as acute as the day he died. In some ways things have improved. Now that I no longer care … Continue reading

All Things Equal…

Hello. I am Hissy Fit Jones. As a cat who started life homeless, I have a certain affinity for my fellow cats and dogs who do not have a home where they are cared for and loved. Things are better for us animals than they used to be. Back in the day, 12-20 million of … Continue reading
