Happy Gotcha Day Rumpy!

Nine years ago today I stopped to keep a furry dog from darting into the road and to help him find his way home. Little did I know his home was with me. Unlike with DeDe, ours has not been an easy relationship. His size, his high activity level, and his breed have forced me to be … Continue reading

Hey, God: When You’re Done Fixing Sporting Matches, I Could Use Your Help

During times of great stress, we humans tend to rethink our place in the Universe and whether or not there’s truly someone in charge. I’m doing that right now.  Is there really a benevolent overlord somewhere up in the sky pulling the strings that make us all dance and waiting for us to fuck up … Continue reading

My Dog is an Angel

I woke up this morning and my body didn’t want to move. I’d worked 65 hours in 6 days, and I felt it in every bone in my body. Right now we’re so short of staff that we can work all the overtime we want, and since there’s a chance there will be no budget … Continue reading

Dreams and Kings and Other Things

I have lived my entire life in the South. I was not quite a year old when the March on Selma took place. I’ve seen Klansmen in their robes riding in the backs of trucks, waving their flags, in broad daylight. I remember a time when white people threw around the N-word without first looking around … Continue reading

One of Those Days….

You ever have those days when you feel like nobody likes you? I do. In fact, I had one today. Today I was served a belly-full of passive-aggressiveness, out-right aggressiveness, along with a side of cold shoulders. On the drive home I prayed to the Universe, asking what in the hell I did to deserve … Continue reading

Happy Gotcha Day, Rumpy!

Today is Rumpy’s 9th Gotcha Day. It was 9 years ago today I was driving down the street in Winchester, Tennessee, and found a pup hanging dangerously close to the road. He had no cares, no tags, and no microchip. The vet estimated he was between 6 and 9 months old. I looked for his … Continue reading

Will You Be My Valentine?

Oh Dog! Happy Valentines Day! I can feel all the love in the air, and personally, it’s making me kinda nauseous. But on this day of love, there is one to whom I give my heart…… So to the one who has risen early each morning, even on her days off, to feed us, take … Continue reading

Rumpy the Consoler

I have been greatly surprised by many things in the past couple of days. I have been especially surprised with Rumpy.       Rumpy is not an especially affectionate dog. He lets me rub his head and he likes being brushed, but no hugs please, and don’t touch his feet. He is, however, an emotional … Continue reading
