Surly and thanks.

Thank you all for your so kind condolences. JessicaDog was a real one of a kind...her last day she got up and moved from the den to the living room, stopping by the water bowl on the way. She left us a parting 'gift' by peeing on the carpet ;D She went and laid under the library table we use for puzzles and settled in. We couldn't get her to go back to her crate in the den, so I went and brought it into the living room. Yeah, that's my decor, dog crates, cat hair, kid toys and half-finished window treatment in the den. I took the crate in and put it down...and she looked up with that goofy smile. I won (again). Yeah you did. ;D The house is kinda empty and I'm not quite sure Caleb has figured it out.

More dog adventures. I spent my 'stimulus' portion that was in my paycheck last week. Our 'share' of it will buy me ONE 20 oz. cup of plain ol' decaf once a week. The sweet girls at the Human Bean gave us a dog bone for Caleb. He proceeded to 'bury' it between the blanket and the seat back. I fought him back from sticking his head between the seats and saw him 'digging' for it. So I grabbed it out for him. He 'buried' it again. Then he started pulling the blanket back while looking for it. Then he pulled the blanket back too far and exposed the bone. Then he tried to 'bury' it again under the blanket, only the blanket was pulled back too far. He had a rather frantic look on his face. Then a 'solution' occurred to him, and he moved the bone closer to the blanket and tried to use his nose to shove the blanket over the bone again, but he was standing on the blanket (sigh). Sometimes I think he is a bloomin' idiot. Sweet dog, but an absolute moron.

And that was the brightest point of the day til I got off work computer went rebooted itself around 60 times or least. It would go to reboot and would reboot the reboot! And I was trying to make phone calls and get into the computer long enough to answer some email and print out things that I can use next week. If I am lucky, corporate IT will get it back to me by Wednesday or Thursday. (sigh).

I'm SO glad this week is over.


  1. Oh, I'm so, so sorry. I can't imagine. Our oldest dog (we have 3) is 13 and mostly deaf and partially blind. We've had her since she was 8 weeks old. I know her years are numbered (I'm hoping for at least 3 more) and just the thought makes me want to weep and wail.
    On to happier things, the large bead covered egg you asked about was 80 Euro. That's about $100 US depending on the exchange rate. He said it can take up to 3 days to finish one. He really needs to charge more. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. Hello! I've stumbled here from Kathy's blog!

    I hope you have a refreshing holiday weekend and that next week is better for you!!!


  3. I am so sorry to hear about your dog. I know how hard it is to lose a beloved pet. I will pray for you.

  4. I am so sorry to hear about your loss:(
    It's always so sad to lose a pet...

    I wanted to say thanks for entering my giveaway and for hanging out at my blog! I've had horrible computer issues (and it sounds like you are too!) and I've been hijacking different computers from the family!

    I am adding 5 more prizes on Monday so check back!!!
