Tired on Tuesday!

Image
It's been months since my last posting! My old laptop finally gave in and froze up, where it still remains in a cryogenic coma under my bed! My new Lenovo is quite nice but I am still trying to master the learning curve of Windows 10!

In the meanwhile Nala and Sylva are fine! The summer past by like a wink of an eye and here we are staring down at October..just about! We went to the vet last week for a double appointment. Nala had her wellness check up and Sylva was due for his distemper shot. We made a late evening 8:10 PM appointment which worked out well. No one was there in the waiting room and the two of them had the run of the place! Of course we had our side issues, Nala had an infected face wrinkle and Syl his usual belly dermatitis. They were well behaved patients though and received several treats for their good behavior! Hey no matter what happens at the veterinarians stays at the veterinarians ...once you get the treats the bad stuff is all behind you!



Hope to see you al…

New Look Thursday

Image
I haven't posted in a way long time so I decided with a new post should come a new look! I am trying this new theme that blogger recently introduced to see how it flows and any comments are welcomed. 

So we are greeting a new season, spring is upon us! At last free from winters harshness the doggies are out on the deck and sunning themselves in all their glory! Whoa wait though ...so come the seasonal allergies. Turns out that Sylva is very allergy prone. Hot spots erupt all over his skinny body! Not that Nala is immune to this, she does get an occasional rash. My friend who knows her dogs recommended using chamomile tea to relieve their itch. I am not suggesting having tea late in the afternoon on grandma's porch but brewed tea in a spray bottle ! I have 3 teabags currently steeping in two cups of hot water! Once it cools down I will fill up my spray bottle and try it out. Worst case if it doesn't work out, it's all natural and can't do any harm other than make the…

Thursday, Snow Day!

So the ongoing foster failure and adoption of Sylva is going well. He has found his place and Nala is all good with him. Though they don't actually play together they do harmoniously exist side by side. Sylva is a aggressive chewer and will gleefully chew on a rubber ball all day! Nala is the passive observer and still maintains sole ownership of the living room couch! 

Today we had at least a half foot of snow or more that caused schools and most businesses to close in the New York city tri-state area. It always looks pretty from the inside out but when the storm is over and you have to dig out ...well it's not so pretty then.

Nala and Sylva like to run laps in the fresh snow but it's always a quick out and in for them!

Here is Nala giving us her fastest sprint to date! Enjoy!








Woaaa! 

Foster Failure Friday

Image
I hope all of you had a joyous holiday and are getting ready to celebrate the new year 2017! We have had peaks and valleys in the past year but all in all no complaints. My son Will and his high school sweetheart Ashley were married in October. That was the highlight of my year and what a beautiful event! I couldn't be happier or prouder of them both!! We then rounded out 2016 with an addition to the family...dog family that is! 

The Long Island Bulldog Rescue contacted me and said they had a dog who needed fostering. I had been pondering the thought of getting another bulldog to keep Nala company. She had become such a couch potato my thinking was that may activate her inner dog! I said yes and went to pick up a an Olde English Bulldog named Sylva. The rescue told me he was a healthy 3 years old and his owner had to surrender him since she was unfortunately being placed in a nursing home. She had been diagnosed with dementia.

At first I was hesitant. He kinda looked like a bulldog …

Another Manic Monday

Sorry I have been away so long from the blog. Guess one gets lazy during the summer months. Not that we have done much this summer. We have pretty much been doing a stay cation all summer long. Nala is okay with that! The hot weather does not agree with bulldogs and their preference is the couch and the air conditioning on high!

We now look further to going for evening walks in the cooler air and meeting up with our other dog friends. A few months ago Nala lost one of her dog pals, Bailey the boxer. She was up there in age 9 or 10 which is old for a boxer. She was such a sweet girl and we will miss her very much!



Today we have moved out the old furniture in the family room to make way for new furniture being delivered tomorrow! Nala is confused by the empty room! 'What's going on here?! Where's the green couch?! Hope they don't take my couch in the living room too!"




Don't worry Nala there is just going to be more options for you to practice your art of the nap!  …

Too Much Tongue Tuesday

Image
"Yes indeed that was delicious!" commented Nala as she finished her dinner on the deck! Wow Nala, I didn't think you had that much of a tongue in your little head! 



June is Upon Us

Sorry ...we are here! Just plain ole laziness not to post something for so long! Nala has been enjoying the nice weather and we just came in from an evening stroll. It takes us at least 40 minutes to go just around our block! Nala insists on stopping and waiting for people who happen to be walking behind us. She will literally sit her bum down in the middle of the road and not budge until they catch up with us! Seriously Nala not everyone wants to pet you!

We had a BBQ the other day and Nala must of ate something she should not of! The morning after was a little rough. I knew she wasn't well when she didn't eat her breakfast! Her stomach was making noises so loud that I could hear it from across the room. No fear though, by dinner time she was back to her old self and eating like a champ! I really have to keep a better watch on her! You know how bulldogs can give you that sad look, like they are so deprived! Peoples don't be fooled!
