well, practically wordless Wednesday… for me and her royal silliness…
Beware, there is a dangerous Land Shark also known as a Bed Hog, that encroaches upon human beds and takes them over…once this infamous predator takes over, there is little chance for recovery
Once the Land Shark has found its way upon your bed and has its large rocklike butt near to your pillow, by your face, you can try these moves for possible success but do not budge a sliver or an inch or you will lose ground and then ALL will be lost and your place on the bed will be completely confiscated:
1. The push with both hands or wedge an elbow like a crowbar
2. Plop down right on top of the Land Shark with your entire body or your pillow
3. Cover the Land Shark with a blanket
4. Ask the Land Shark to move in a loud voice
The Land Shark has been known to respond in any of these ways:
1. ignores you
2. opens its eyes and looks bemused at your dilemma
3. refuses to budge one inch of space
4. may stand up and sit down in the exact same spot just to confuse you
5. a sneaky new trick is to stick its head underneath yours
If the Land Shark does NOT move away, it is likely that the next stage of infiltration will take place and you will likely experience:
being pawed in the belly region
licked, bathed and coated in saliva
a tail will be wagged directly into your face
a smelly toot sounding from its nether regions will emit directly into your face
If any and all of the above happen, it is useless to try to recover any ground. The bed is NOT safe for human habitation any longer.
Take the proper precautions or this too can happen to you.
Once the Land Shark has landed and taken over your bed like this, they are unlikely to move over any time soon. And they may hide underneath your blanket to fool you but eventually they will pant and you will know that they are still there.
Cici is on the job, as she is every day, here at home… asleep, on the couch or bed, or right now in the kitchen checking out the scraps on the floor… she just finished her bone… soon she will nap, then get a bath (shhhhhh, do not tell her)… here she is researching the news for me…

An original poem by Oz the Terrier; re-posted with permission, in its entirety, as originally posted on www.oztheterrier.com.
Does your dog dig Enya, Mozart or the Beatles?
a 2012 study at Colorado State University found that kenneled dogs spent more time sleeping when exposed to classical music and became shaky when listening to heavy metal tunes.
If your dog had a favorite song or signature song what would it be?
I think Cici’s would be Born to be Wild by Steppenwolf, Easy Rider movie… (she loves motorcycles, PEOPLE who ride them and she’s a wild and crazy dog)…
Get your motor runnin’
Head out on the highway
Looking for adventure
In whatever comes our way
Gonna make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace…
American Pit Bull Terrier… (my polka dot princess)… rub my belly and I’ll kiss you and cuddle with you and kiss you and cuddle… after, let’s zoom around the block, roll in the grass, rub my belly, cuddle and kiss… what light bulb?
Golden Retriever: The sun is shining, the day is young, we’ve got our whole lives ahead of us, and you’re inside worrying about a stupid light bulb?
Border Collie: Just One. And then I’ll replace ALL the wiring that’s not up to code.
Dachshund: You know I can’t reach the stupid lamp.
Rottweiler: Make Me.
Boxer: Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark.
Lab: Oh Me, me me, PLEEEEEEEEZE let me change the light bulb. Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I, PLEEEEEEEEZE, PLEASE PLEASE?
German Shepard: I’ll change it as soon as I’ve led these people from the dark, check to make sure I haven’t missed any, and make one more perimeter patrol to see that no one has tried to take advantage of the situation.
Jack Russell: I’ll just pop it in while I am bouncing off the walls.
Cocker Spaniel: Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark.
Chihuahua: Yo Quiero Taco Bulb.
Pointer: I see it, there it is, there it is, right there–RIGHT THERE
Greyhound: It isn’t moving, who cares?
Australian Shepherd: First, I’ll put all the light bulbs in a little circle.
Poodle: I’ll just blow in the Border Collie’s ear, and he’ll do it. By the time he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry.
Terrier: Let me bark at it for a while to see if it really needs changing.
What would your dog say?
How many cats does it take to change a light bulb???
I was diagnosed with fibro in 1996… have relieved 98% of my symptoms and agree that PET THERAPY of the pit bull variety kind helps a lot… since pibbles are funny dogs… goofy… warm… cuddly and silly… much comic relief, lots of laugh, plus calming warmth and an abundance of licks… of course I am biased…
pain is the pits… this morning my lower back was hurting, cici is applying her special therapy upon it and my back feels better already…
more about how I have relieved my pain from fibro is here…
loved that Animal Planet had pit bull puppies in their Too Cute segment but miss Pit Bulls and Parolees, which will be on again January 5. below is just a Dogs 101 segment about American Pit Bull Terriers…
what do you think????
Today is the feast day of St Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals. St Francis was renowned for his relationship with animals, famously brokering a peace between the townspeople of Gubbio, Italy, and a local wolf. Many churches take the opportunity to bless pets around this feast day.
World Animal Day is celebrated each year on October the 4th. It started in Florence, Italy in 1931 at a convention of ecologists. On this day,animal life in all its forms is celebrated, and special events are planned in locations all over the globe. The 4th of October was originally chosen for World Animal Day because it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi.
There are still many people who think that dogs are nothing more than security alarms – people who keep the animals chained up in yards, like living doorbells.
And there is the blight known as BSL…and too many healthy animals are killed in shelters, dog fighting, animal abuse, etc.
Animals are precious and we are their voice.
If you have a pet, dog or cat or rabbit or bird or fish, whatever, you know that they are special and bring lots of love and often entertainment into your home.
My Cici aka polka dot princess does often with her silly antics. As did my cats Precious and Abundance. Pets not only make our world furrier but also funnier. Love and enjoy them while you can.
Celebrate World Animal Day !!!!
