Groomed Poodle

Today was "beauty parlor" day for Gyp. Not one of her favorite things to do. With the hot weather here she needed a shorter cut. If we cut her much shorter than this she looks like a refugee. Skin and bones.

Fathers Day Weekend

It is Fathers Day weekend. The weather on the eastern shore could not be better. My better half is actually away this weekend visiting friends and having a big time leaving me on my own. Well on my own with the exception of Gypsy and the herd cats. This leaves me as the responsible adult in the house in charge of Cat Box Duty.
Hey, don't you mean Cat Box DOODY???
Yep, lots of that going on.

The weekends that Sandi is away usually turn into Poodle weekends. Gypsy and I walk more since there isn't much else to do. Today we met Oliver the pig on the walk. Oliver is huge!!!
Hey Oliver, step away from the buffet!!!
He is a happy pig I must say. His little tail is always going. 

Poke (Po-Key) is also growing at an alarming rate. Plus he has a thing about messing up the rugs throughout the house and pulling towels down off the rack.
So, I'm going to get my chores done and embark on a poodle weekend with Gypsy.

Saturday, June 11, 2016


Meet Poke. Pronounced Po Key. Like the super yummy tuna dish. Sandi has always wanted a Siamese and so she now has one. Sandi has a friend that is a cat magnet. I swear if there is a stray cat within 100 miles she comes across it.  She found Poke wandering around a Walmart parking lot. Who would dump a tiny kitten off like that?
It didn't take long for him to fit in. He learned early on that the dog bed is for cats too. 
The other boys showed him how to take advantage of the sun spot in the morning. I have to admit he is a cute kitten with a great personality.

Birthday Gal

 Wow, I've not blogged since the beginning of April. I guess that shows what exciting lives we lead on the Eastern Shore.
We were going out for coffee on this cloudy Sunday morning and Sandi remembered it was June 5th. Gypsy's Birthday!
She is 11 today and that is hard to believe.
Hey, never mention a girls age dude!!!
Sorry about that.
She still looks and acts like a puppy much of the time. She still has a big smile on her face. She gets very excited when she sees a bunny or any other little furry thing. (with the exception of cats) She continues to keep our air space free from big black birds. She still gets very excited when she sees us putting on walking shoes.
She is showing some signs of age though. She is getting more gray in the snout, ears, and top of her head.
Hey, look who's talking!!!
True, no room to talk. She still loves to walk but our walks are getting shorter and slower. She is spending much more time in her bed either sleeping or just hanging out.
I think today will be a "Poodle Day" dedicated to Gypsy on her 11th birthday. We'll hang out in the back yard, I picked up a new pork chew thing for her, and who knows maybe we can convince her Mom to take her shopping for a new collar?
