Suki got a bath yesterday and she is extra soft and fluffy for this morning’s cuddle.

Too soon

  
Everyone else in the house had long been up. Breakfast was ready. I went back upstairs and peeled back the covers, and I got some Italian Greyhound side eye. #dogsofthefederation #dogsOfTheFederation

Why—WHY do you wake me? Schedule schmedule. Tell the sun to come back later.

We won’t know just how worried we should be until we see the specialist (tonight or tomorrow). So, for good measure, we are practice-worrying right now. And giving her lots of loving.

Miss Roo developed an internal infection this weekend. We’ve had her at her regular vet today. But she needs to be seen by a specialist tomorrow (if not tonight). If it is what they suspect, the usual treatment would be surgery. But she is somewhere between 15 and 18 years old and her skin is paper thin. I don’t think she would survive surgery.

It is going to be an emotional, stressful few days.

For tonight, I have my three cuties and my wife all together ....


Wow, that came out wrong. Four--FOUR--cuties (including my wife). I blame it on the poor man's Old Fashioned I just drank. (Recipe for @Steve has ☕️ for brains : 2 fingers of Russel's 10-year Kentucky Straight Bourbon and approx 1 teaspoon of juice from Tillen Farms' Bada Bing Cherries plus 2 cherries.)

I'm glad to hear that for now she is okay. I hope nothing too seriously is going on for her! I hope you can relax a bit. Take care!
  
Thanks, @Marieke Bednarczyk , the infection seems to be clearing up. We'll go back in a couple of weeks to see if we can get a clearer diagnosis. In the meantime, she isn't in pain and is eating well. So, I'm not worried (as much) anymore.

On Sundays, Fah (my wife) makes pancakes and SAUSAGE. Which means that Sundays at breakfast time are also when I can grab a picture of all 3 of them staring at me at once. :)

Cloudy Sundays are for hanging out in jammies and taking turns at belly rubs.

Looks to me like you need a third arm ;-)
  
Sunday was short-sleeve weather, and Pasha and I went cruising. Forecast for tonight: snow!

Sunny sundays are for cruising with Pasha.

i think i never voted in my whole life loudly crying face for a long time the options were SPD (social democrats, center-left), CDU (christian democrats, center-right), or FDP (free democrats, center-god-knows-what). i really didn't see a point then: was all the same anyway.

then, some 30+ years ago i left for india where i'm still living. during the last election i happened to be in berlin for a short visit and decided that, with all the neo-nazi stuff going on i simply had to vote. unfortunately i was registered in west bengal, means i would hava had to apply for a mail-vote, and when i found out it was already too late. so still: no vote from me...
  
@phanisvara das You are forgiven ;-) It must be a lot harder to keep up with what's going on, living that far away. I would imagine that you're a lot more concerned with local politics than with what's happening halfway around the globe.

@alysonsee Sorry, somehow your cruising dog post became about politics... my fault, I guess ;-) It's really hard to keep politics out of anything these days.
  
@Tanja I hear you. We are outnumbered by dogs in our house. And they tend to vote unanimously pro-chicken, pro-peanut butter, and anti-bath time. According to the dogs, we are freedom-hating treat hoarders who discriminate against those without opposable thumbs. :)

awesome dogs!
  
Thanks, @Lil' Beanie . They are my joys. Last night, the Italian Greyhound had breathing problems, so I propped her up along my chest and she slept there for hours. Pure bliss.

Sunny spot

Every 15 minutes, I drag their beds by a few inches to recenter them in the sunny spots. I need some enterprising engineer to figure out how to mount a dog bed on top of a Roomba and to reprogram it to follow the sunbeams. Please take me money!!

That would take a long time to get the hoovering done.. :-)
  
@squozebrain , that's hysterical. And a sound warning considering that I have an elderly dog that can't always make it through the day!
 from Diaspora
@alysonsee Ok that made me laugh. I'm thinking maybe going with the command, Rover move over, might be the way to go. But then again I'm no expert :)

Friends and fellow dog lovers, a kind admin has set up a dog-centric Mastodon instance, and I expect that my most squee-ful, unmitigated inner snoot booper will fully emerge, no longer bashful about how preoccupied I am with all things canine. If you would like your pups to contribute to the cuteness overload or just want a local timeline chockablock with ears flapping in breezes out of car windows and demonstrations of napping gymnastics, please join me on https://canine.cloud .

Every time I sniffle, Suki swings her head around and gives me a startled, worried stare. I don’t know for sure but her level of concern suggests that she expects I will explode on inhale.

My #cat_I_miss, Paciorek used to meow with disapproval after every our sniffle.
  
@splendorsolis@diasp.org That’s funny. I wonder what they are thinking. Maybe instead of worry, it’s disapproval, and they think we just have bad manners. :)

I think it's very possible. :)

He loves his wubbie. So, of course, he brought it to share the sunny spot with him.

Morning

  
Twenty minutes before my alarm went off, before the sun came up even, this guy climbed up the bed towards me, stood on my chest and sneezed 3 times in my face. So, no real point in sleeping after that. Once I was back in bed with a big cup of tea, he climbed onto my lap, faced me, and started doing the urka gurka. Bless him for giving me enough warning to transfer him off the bed and to a more suitable place to toss his cookies. He’s a very good boy, and now seems completely unphased and sure that I will share my peanut butter on toast.

Thanks, @splendorsolis@diasp.org ! Always a pleasure to see you out here.
Snuggle practice

  
Suki understands: You’ve had a long week, and it’s hard to settle down. But when you are ready, she is here to show you how relaxing and snuggling is done properly.

Runs errands with dogs

  
Miss Roo was good company on my errand run this morning. She got to go into the post office, the bank, and the dry cleaners. She is very calm, loves the adventure, and is content in my arms when we go inside places.

The remorseless face of a dog who ate something she shouldn’t have. On the upside, if Crayola calls, I have some suggestions for new names for vibrant shades of green.
