Who Is that Masked Man?

Mar
16


Boomer followed me over two miles down our muddy road yesterday on my way to pick up Weston from the bus. Near the hard road, I finally gave up and picked him up for fear he’d run down the hard road after me, too, and risk getting hit by a car.

He threw up in the back seat before we got home, of course.

    Boomer is a “Mama-Lovin’-Dog”. He says, “Don’t leave me behind.”

    Awww….poor Boomer. Poor Suzanne. Poor car.
    My sister had a cat once who every time she went to the vet would make a terrible mess in the truck. Throwing up, wetting, poo-ing…just where ever there was an outlet, bad things would come flying out. I never offered to help my sister take that cat to the vet. I felt bad about it but I never offered.

    Wow Carol Langille- I would not have offered either. I would have put the cat in a carrier under towels etc. Oh the fun of taking care of pets. Unpredictable -

    I took my 8 year old tomcat to the vet last Monday to get him updated on his shots in preparation for the neutering tomorrow. He SPRAYED in the cat carrier before we got there! Everyone definitely knew we had arrived. The vet was kind enough to wash the carrier out before we left, but she didn’t stay in the room very long :bugeyed:

    :lol:

    Our cat follows me around the block anytime I take the dogs for a walk. It used to be ok when we lived where we had a sidewalk, but now we don’t and he runs in the road… sometimes I pick him up and just carry him home because I worry he’ll get hit by a car. Lately I’ve been locking him in the house while I walk the dogs. Our cat thinks he’s a dog, and our pit mix thinks he’s a cat… go figure.

    My son had a dog like that. He barfed every time he rode in the car. Never changed.
    Also, I had a cat that was so scared when we took him to the vet his feet would sweat.
    It isn’t just animals. I can’t handle merry-go-rounds or ferris wheels, and I’d rather die that ride a roller coaster.

    He just wanted a ride in the beauty of Spring!! My pooch thinks every time I go outside I am going “bye-bye” and she whines to go too – but only during this time of year, not in the fall or winter monthes. Go figure!!

    Well, I don’t have any answers for that one even though it has happened before and we know it will happen again. Poor Boomer. Poor Suzanne. Poor car seat.

    Funny. The barfing in your car isn’t so funny. Too bad you couldn’t make him walk home alongside the car (on a leash of course) while you drive slowly home. On second thought that might take too long. Chin up Boomer.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
