I want to talk about my dog

This reminds me, Boo's lick sore has healed. I used a combination of soaking in Epsom salts to help draw out the infection and bring down the swelling as well as black tea compresses to help dry the area. He shows no sign of continuing to be fixated on licking the area.

It will get easier, as time passes. Things that might've annoyed you, once upon a time, become endearing unique memories.

I don't know whether to post this in the dog or cat thread, so...

Since having lost Dugie, the cats have grown more free with their rambunctious play without the Dog-given hallway monitor to bark at their endeavors. We've noticed a relationship developing between Boo and Missy. They play together more often than they used to. Picture, if you will, an 85 pound squarely-built Poodle mix doing a great big long play bow to a much too big for her paws 4 pound Calico. And yes, she is an adult kitty at ~14 months. He bows, she grabs his neck, he shakes, she grabs a front leg, he stands, she grabs the other front leg, he bows, and repeat. It's gone on more than an hour. It makes me sad that Smudge, who loved his big white dogs, never got quite to the point of befriending Boo.

I am finding both of these things to be true.

Dugan, that is adorable. I know it doesn't make the loss of Dugie easier but at least you know Boo has a playmate, however mismatched their sizes.

I miss the barking, even though I was always telling him to stop. The other day I got out a fleece I hadn't worn in a while, which had a good quantity of long white fur on it. I couldn't bring myself to lint-roller it off.

I found one of Lola's hairs in my sweater last week. I agonized over whether to keep it (where?!) or throw it away (no!!) so I saved it at my desk at work. I can't find it now. It's so silly.

I also miss her butting in to the bathroom when I'm peeing. She used to nose the door open. A lot. Now, it randomly opens on it's own if I don't secure it enough and it's not Lola and that is dumb.

Sarina misses her drool pools that happened while she would wait for her dinner. We always slipped in her drool and it was gross.

the way things have changed, eh?
