Southern women do not appreciate “critters” in their gardens.

She really thinks that I cannot see her. (telephoto lens)

THE OPPOSITE OF LOVE

is not hate.

It is utter indifference.

Healthier and less corrosive.

THERE IS NOTHING SO DETERMINED

COTON DE TULEAR?

Everyone is talking about the WordPress site, Awkward Family Photos.

But all I could think of about this photo was, “What kind of dog is that?” What do you think?

BTW, the dog is the most interesting thing in this picture.

PET PEEVE PROJECT

This is going to be an on-going project. What is your “pet” peeve? That is, peeves concerning pets.

I think we all know that I am the peeve princess! Sometimes, it seems like I don’t like anyone’s animals but my own. But, I don’t let it concern me. I used to feel the same way about children. 🙂

My friend who doesn’t “do computers” wanted to be first. She hates it when people kiss their dogs on the mouth. I agree! People! Have you seen where those mouths have been?

Mine is the most obvious. I hate when people let their dogs run loose. Don’t they care what happens to them? Which leads me to my next peeve.

Dogs who go in my yard. If I see them coming, I tell the owner that I have just applied a chemical to my yard.

I watch these people through my window let their dogs (always huge) go through my grass into the garden, trampling the flowers and then scorching them with urine. Thanks guys and what is your address?  Let me just slip on my handy hazmat suit when I want to garden.

And don’t even get me started on cats in my garden!

Leave your pet peeves in the comments.

DOG GONE BAD VET

I chose our veterinary clinic because it was AAHA certified. I wasn’t impressed with the facilities but the owner/vet seemed competent enough and he was supposed to be available at all times for emergencies. Not only was he not available when we needed him this weekend (See UPDATE), he NEVER RETURNED OUR CALL!

I don’t think that there is anything left to say. He promised a standard of care that was not there. I will not take that risk again. He’s history.

ADDENDUM I think Little-Bit is O.K., but I will be following up with our new vet.

ADDENDUM AGAIN- The vet and his staff called me numerous times on Monday and Tuesday.  Awkward. The excuse given was that the answering service had taken down my number incorrectly. Don’t most answering services have caller ID? I am not changing my mind. Choosing a new vet is never easy, though…

HAPPY ENDINGWell, the answering service sent a transcript of their recording and they had written my number incorrectly as well as my name. I also received an written apology from the operator who had made the error. So I have rescheduled Black Cat’s check-up for this week and we will continue with this practice. Let you know how that goes.

WELL, NOT SO MUCH- Black Cat got carsick in every possible way on the short drive over and then almost escaped. They made me sign something agreeing to pay $25.00 if I cancel an appointment. Then we spent over $300 for a yearly checkup for a healthy cat. We were there almost two hours but part of that was B.C.’s fault as they had to clean her up. I’m sure, if I look closely at my itemized bill, that I was charged for that.

Himself met the vet and didn’t like him either. We really can’t put our finger on why that is. Something about his demeanor.

I don’t see this relationship working out long term, do you?
