Blog from a Dog


A-hem! Blue has something to say.....

You know what’s wrong with today’s world?  Food isn’t falling from the sky!  I don’t get why everyone is so obsessed with overfeeding.  I really think the vet just has it in for me.  I mean, really?  Why should I starve every day just so I can live longer when I’ll be unable to see, let alone, chace the squirrels?  What kind of life is that?  No, just give me a steak… and some bacon and let me die a happy death. 
Feed me Seymuor!
Okay, that’s enough.  Get down Blue! 
So I’m still sick and now my Ry Guy is sick too!  Riley has been curled into a ball on his bed all day.  I feel so bad for him since he is the “Good son” LOL
That’s not fair actually.  Jared has been helping out a lot around the house and doing his chores and his brother’s too.  I’m just still mad that he tricked me into forgetting I was mad at him LOL
It’s really pretty outside.  The trees are coated in snow and frost and it’s really hard to capture with the  iphone camera but the sun really is up there behind the clouds.  The sky is glowing and the bare branches of the trees are sparkling like they are coated in sugar.  I snuck out super fast and snapped a picture.  And I do mean fast!  I was like lightening!  I’m pretty sure my neighbor heard me say hello but when she looked I was gondie! 
It really isn’t that cold here yet.  Its 3 degrees and that’s not bad for this time of year.  There must be an air leak in one of my windows because one of my plants, a miniature rose, looked pretty dead this morning.  I was heart-broken thinking it was dead but now that I’ve doctored it a bit I think it is savable.  ARGH!  Spellcheck thinks “savable” isn’t a word.  So I looked it up. 

Definition for savable:

Web definitions:
Capable of being saved.
Such a sad sight

Sorry, I know that is a blurry picture but my hands shake.  I have a familial tremor.  Anyway, I cleaned off all of the dead leaves and there are a few that are still green.  Some of the stems had to be trimmed off because they turned black.  I hate to see this plant like this after I saved it from the store.  I bought it at Fred Meyer and it was sick.  It had a big fat sticker on it that said “50% off” which is funny to me.  This plant is dying so you can have it for half off!  Anyway, I nursed it back to health and it had the most beautiful dark red blooms I’m ever seen!  So now I have to save it again and not put it back in that window. 

I’m missing my watercolor  class today which makes me really sad.  I miss my friend Chuck who paints with me!  I thought I’d do everyone a favor though and keep my germs to myself. 
Again, just like yesterday, I’ll have to post whatever creativeness happens later.  I never feel good enough to paint or otherwise get creative until later in the evening.

  1. Hey! Photography is an art, isn’t it? I’ll have to remember that. 😉
    Blue is so cute! I’d have to say Karma fully agrees with him. And I do let her eat as much as she wants. (Don’t tell her it is 90% diet food!)

    You’re quite a bit colder than we are yet. We’re in the 20s and 30s at night, but still in the 40s and occasionally poke into the 50s during the day.

    Sorry to hear Riley is sick! My DIL, Leah, was down with a terrible cold/fever/cough and is still getting over it. Clingy germs. I should finally get to see them both tomorrow after about five weeks. I’ll risk the germs. Miss those kids! 😉

    I hope you can save the rose plant. 😦 My herbs I had growing on the porch this summer didn’t take well to moving inside. I’ve lost half of them so far. There should be hope for a rose plant. People cut them back when they grow outdoors don’t they? I’ve known people who did that every fall. I’m hopeful!

    I hope you are feeling better, too. Sorry you missed your watercolor class. Now, that would be fun! I’ve gone a few times over the years to various art classes and they are always fun whether I am good at them or not–LOL!

    Take care of yourself! Glad second favorite son is helping out. 😉

  2. My dog, Cody, feels exactly the same way as Blue. He LOVES food!

    I hope you feel better real soon….sorry that Riley is sick now too. Hopefully, Jared won’t catch it.

    Sending healing vibes to you all, including your plant ~

    Serena 🙂
