The one pretty blossom rose bush

Five years ago we planted a rose bush. I could hardly wait for it to bloom. It had one beautiful blossom on the top and one pitiful blossom below. Those were the only blossoms for the first year. The second year it had one beautiful blossom on the top and two pitiful blossoms below. The third year..... you've got the idea now. Last fall we cut the bush all the way down to the ground. Before we could replace it the bush was back as big as ever. This was the fifth year and sure enough we got one beautiful blossom and five pitiful ones. This photo is of the one good blossom. If you have any idea about why this happens please tell me. Perhaps the rose bush hates me! Perhaps the rose bush is trying to drive me crazy!

Sam & Sassy

Sassy doesn't look like the pitiful dog Coop rescued does she? Please don't mention short legs in front of her. She has no idea that her legs are too short. She thinks she is going to win the Westminster Kennel Club show this year!

If I Didn’t Have A Dog or Cat....

I could walk barefoot around the yard in safety.

My house could be carpeted instead of tiled and laminated.

All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture, and cars would be hair-free.

When the doorbell rings, my home wouldn’t sound like a kennel and I could get to the door without wading through all the fuzzy bodies who beat me there.

I could sit on the couch and my bed any way I wanted, with out having to take into consideration how much space several fur bodies need to get comfortable.

I would have enough money to go on a real vacation , and no have guilt.

I would not be on a first-name basis with 6 veterinarians, as I put their yet unborn grandkids through college.

The most used words in my vocabulary would not be: “out,” “sit,” “down”, “come,” “no,” “stay,” and “leave it ALONE.

I would not talk ‘baby talk’. ‘Eat your din din’. ‘Yummy Yummy for the tummy’.

My house would not look like a day care center, with toys everywhere.

My pockets would not contain things like poop bags, treats and an extra leash.

I would no longer have to spell the words B-A-L-L, G-O, R-I-D-E.

I would not have as many leaves INSIDE my house as outside.

I would not look strangely at people who think having ONE dog/cat ties them down too much.

I’d look forward to spring and the rainy season instead of dreading ‘mud’ season.

I would not have to answer the question: ‘Why do you have so many animals?’ from people who will never know the joy of being loved unconditionally by the closest thing to an angel they will ever encounter.

How dull and empty my life would be!!!

Catching up

I haven't posted to this blog in ages. I do have a good excuse. Coop and I both have been suffering from shingles. If you've ever had them you will understand. Coop had a worse case than I did and they settled in his eye. Eeeeekkkkkk. He is finally over the worst part and his vision is back to normal.

Sassy and Sam have become great friends! They have their jobs sorted out now. When they hear a evildoer outside both will run to check. Sam stays and barks to keep the evildoer at bay. Sassy runs as fast as her little too-short legs will go and tells Coop that they need help. Being the resident dog-spoiler he goes to help them. So far we have not been invaded by a single evildoer. Thank goodness for two small white dogs!

I've been working on a really crazy necklace. With any luck I may be able to finish it. When, you say? I have no idea!
