He never skipped a meal in his life but…..

For a few months now, I have been silent. My fingers were frozen, and my brain was not doing much better! I was and am still cyber stalked by an ex member of Zeus Corner. He insulted me, threatened me, cyber stalked me up to the point that I could not write anymore, cringing at [...]

A gentle dog….

In January of 2006, I was driving on a small country road in the Poolesville area in Maryland. I was not really in a good mood, dealing with an antique shop in Poolesville which was going down the drain. Anyway, just after a curve, a big sign hit me with its words: “Labrador Retrievers puppies [...]

I am pro-breeder, so what?

I had a “Dominique” moment last week, when I received one too many emails telling me to adopt a rescue dog, and trying to give me a guilt trip if I chose to get a puppy from a breeder.  Since when breeder became a bad word? I am against PUPPY MILLS, BUT I AM PRO [...]

The Ball Keeper

I am getting worse than my mother! When she watches the news, she listened to the first few words and makes up the rest of the story by herself. In my case, your Honor, I just don’t read the whole titles: for instance, this morning, I was working in the darn yard again which is [...]

Going to the zoo

Tomorrow I am going to the zoo. I hate zoos. Always did. I always felt that by losing their freedom and their anonymity, these animals become freaks.  But I need to see elephants. They always made me keep my balance, recenter myself. I will go straight to them, and just absorb them. Elephants give me [...]

Spring in Muttstown

      As I always say – sometimes it makes feel as old as Tom Hanks in the Green Mile, I never understood the blabbering about Spring in DC. THERE IS NO SPRING IN DC! If we are very lucky, we might have a week of it, but most of the time we drastically [...]

Just one time!

      Last night, Lola woke me up, standing by my bed with her ball in her mouth, panting in my face, and her eyes saying “Come on Mom, I can’t sleep…. Just one time, please…..” It was 2:15 am, and looking at her eyes, I smiled, got up, took my flash light, and [...]

Living with a Diva!

  Since Zoe’s TPLO surgery, she blossomed into a Diva. She took over my office, since she is not supposed to jump onto anything, and Zoe being Zoe, she has always managed until now to be more in the air than on our good old planet. She perfected the art of jumping in the air, [...]

Barbara’s smile….

I miss Barbara….. This morning, it just hit me how much I miss her. I still remember the last time I saw her at her office. I was in the lobby, and I saw her coming towards us, Maia and me, a huge smile on her face.  There are smiles and smiles; this one was [...]

The story of Zoe’s cranial cruciate ligament!

      In Muttstown, when it rains, it pours, it cannot be a gentle sweet rain, it has to be a deluge. Maybe I should feel special about it. It had to happen with Zoe right? Zoe who is the laziest one of the bunch. Her idea of exercise is watching TV on her [...]
