Slathering Cici with Lavendar mixed with coconut oil on her itchies. Made a lavendar oil infused bandana for her neck. And also applying Dr Harvey’s healing cream to her tush and feeding her wild salmon oil with her food. Gave her an herbal bath and a soft cone to keep her from scratching and biting her rear.
And yesterday the pit bull across the street decided to get out of her gate and run after us on the way to the park barking all the way. The two dogs do not really know one another. Both girls. And have barked at other. I was not going to chance a fight or barkfest so I managed to keep them far apart. And it was scary. I tried to get Sasha back into her yard to no avail. And tried to enlist two men to help me. They were both scared of Sasha the pit bull… Finally, I convinced one man to hold onto Cici and I chased Sasha back into her yard. On the way to the yard, two cars came while she was in the middle of the road. Thankfully they both stopped and were driving slowly. Did not feel secure enough to know if Sasha would stay inside, so I grabbed Cici and brought her inside our home. I wondered if the old guy who lives in the house was ok. And how long Sasha was outside. I decided to bring her over some water and food just in case. A few hours later, I saw my neighbor’s car and went over and told him what happened. He simply forgot to lock the gate. And I made friends with Sasha up close and personal. Let her smell me. Am very thankful it all ended well.
Am also thankful for my roommate being a jerk. and for spending my birthday / Thanksgiving alone this year. At least that is how it seems it is going to be since roomie is being a tick.
Am REALLY thankful for the wonderful foot massage I had yesterday before all the dog chaos.
Am REALLY thankful for the lovely comp meal I will have at Benihana’s today, the movie I will see (Lincoln) and for my polka dot princess, the best dog on the planet.
And am REALLY thankful to all of you dear readers!!!
Thanksgiving is all about spending time with loved ones and remembering the people
and things we are thankful for – including our furry family members. This year, Pet360.com has created the following list of the top nine reasons to be thankful for our dogs and cats.
— Easy to Please: After a long day at the office, few things are better
than coming home to your pet. A bowl full of food and a nice long belly
rub or ear scratch is all it takes to make their day.
— Up For Anything: Plane? Train? Automobile? Regardless of where you
travel, most pets are content to be anywhere you are, and they’ll never
ask, “Mom! Are we there yet?”
— Get Us Moving: Whether it is the dog that needs to go out, or the cat
you are entertaining with a feather teaser, our pets always keep us on
our feet and on the go.
— Love to Snuggle: From when they are kittens and puppies until they
become senior pets, our dogs and cats will always snuggle up with us on
the couch or in bed, making any snuggle session ten times better.
— Calm Us: Whenever we are having a hectic day, one look at our pet
reminds us to take a deep breath and be calm. Petting, scratching, and
even rubbing your pet’s belly can be therapeutic, too.
— Appreciate the Little Things: Our pets remind us every day that it is
the little things — a cardboard box, a shoelace, or a walk outdoors –
that are most important in life.
— Keep us on Schedule: Our pets make sure we are up on time everyday!
Whether it is a paw to the forehead or a lick to the face, these gentle
reminders to be fed or go outside make sure we’re awake to see the
— Get us Out of Jams: Date not going well? Stuck at a neighbor’s? If
nothing else, pets provide us with a perfect built-in excuse to quickly
exit a situation. Who would ask you to stay when you suddenly remember
that you have forgotten to feed the pets?
— Provide Unconditional Love: Above all, our pets teach us what
unconditional love is and remind us to always be the people our pets
think we are.
