Very quite here today, It’s been just me and my fur babies, Yogi n Lil’ Rascal, two little Maltese spoiled sweet best friends. Except
for short jaunts in the rain, they have been right by my desk chair all day, especially the little one, Rascal, he is horrified anytime it thunders. Bless his little heart, I don’t know what to do except pet him, tell him it’ll be ok, and occasionally pick him up and hold him till he stops trembling. Yogi is older and doesn’t sweat it, he will just lay there and calmly chew on a leather chewy of some kind…
Nothing really upsets Yogi except when we’re out and I get out of my truck, then some catastrophic event is surely about to take place! He doesn’t like it at all even though I leave the windows cracked, motor running, air or heat on, radio on his favorite station, and the doors locked. I never leave them more than a few minutes to jump out and get a soda or something and hop right back in the driversseat. On the other hand; Rascal who is the high-strung over emotional one, for an odd role reversal; Rascal doesn’t mind me getting out at all, just lays down in the seat and waits for me to return while Yogi is having a barking fit jumping all over the truck. Yogi has even leaned to honk the horn which can be annoying not to mention embarrassing. When all else fails I break out the treats! Treats! ahhh yes! That is what makes the world a wonderful place! I think treats must be kinda like Xanax to dogs although the effects don’t last as long on them. Short term use of course…
Well, I’ve tried to think of something to blog about today and I have hit a wall. I don’t know if it’s enjoying the peace and quiet and hearing the rain pelting on the house from time to time putting me into a transcendental state, LOL! Also, I am having a hard time learning to blog this new way with no agenda, focus, genre, or main topic like I have been used to in the past. Nevertheless, this is what I have decided to do and I am going to stick with it till I figure out how it’s done. I really think I will enjoy it and I know I will have some interesting stories or whatever to share. I just haven’t gotten into the grove of how this type of blog is done. Maybe I’m trying too hard. I didn’t even watch or read the news today which is unusual for me. It has been an exceptionally trying time mentally and emotionally the last few days… Maybe my brain and spirit is trying to take a break. I guess it might need it..
Hopefully I’ll have something more engaging the next time I post.
