It’s Memorial Day weekend. Many people are visiting graves, reflecting, missing, & weeping over the loss of a loved one.
Pets are also part of the family and there are many people who are mourning the loss of a beloved pet. I would like to pay tribute to them in a post. (This is not to take away from those who have lost their lives serving, this is just in addition to this day when we think of those who have passed)
Please send me a photo of a pet you have lost along with…

I hope you were able to read this week’s “Tuesday Tale” about Irene’s dog Odin. Odin has been getting a lot of nose bleeds lately. They thought it was an infection so he has been on medication to treat it. But the nose bleeds haven’t stopped. So they tested him for possible genetic illnesses, and now, they will be doing a brain scan.

The Tale of Odin as Told by Irene
Odin is usually a happy boy at 4 years old. He loves our long walks in nature, where he can run free without his leash. He was early taught not to hunt, so when he meets a rabbit, he just stands quiet and lifts one paw. Then I tell him, that the rabbit lives here, just go on straight and he listens. This is so well acted of him, which gives himself more freedom, while we are out in nature.
After being ill for some weeks, Odin is on his way to recovery.

It’s raining cats & dogs.
What does that even mean? I looked it up and found from different sources pretty much the same thing. There is a theory (some say is not true) that a LONG time ago when it rained really hard cats and dogs would be found dead along the streets supposedly from falling off of roofs when trying to find shelter during the rain. Another theory is that dead cats & dogs were washed up from sewers during hard rainfalls. Either one is pretty disgusting. But they are just theories. Here is a link where you can read more:

The Tale of Cino, My Blessing & Best Friend
It’s been seven years since I adopted Cino, then called “Muffy.” She has come a long way since that first day of hiding behind the toilet as pictured above. They told me she was two years old when I adopted her, but I found out later that she was actually three. So today, she is ten years old!

Is your pet afraid of thunderstorms?
A thunderstorm is brewing in my area and should be here soon. I anticipate Cino will be hiding as she usually does.
I wrote a similar post about this last year when I first started blogging regularly. I had read an article that gave a few tips on helping your pet during a storm. Since its that time of year again, I feel its worth repeating.
Here are the tips…

Hello all. Things have been pretty busy, so I haven’t been posting as much. If you have been following me for a while you probably know that I do a “Tuesday Tale” and a “Sunday Pause (Paws)” every week. I just don’t always get to posts in between. I have some great things going on though.

The tale of Rooster Cogburn
Oh that adorable face! Maybe it was partly because of that adorable face that I wept as I read the story of Rooster.
Rooster was a puppy found abandoned & homeless. Cody and his wife were trying for years to have a baby. One day the three of them found each other and they became a family.
But something didn’t seem quite right about Rooster…
