No More Cone and Advent Calendar for Dog Lovers Day 21

Houndstooth said, “I remember having to have stitches after ingrown toenail removal once. The doctor yanked the knot out right through my toe!”

O.M.G. I think I would have yanked something of his out, right through his mouth!  I can’t imagine.

Lauranne said, “I have only just clicked that your dogs are named Sampson and Delilah as in the famous couple and story from the bible (ok possibly not out of the bible but I hope you know what I mean).”

When Hubby and I decided to get a puppy from my friend’s brother’s dog, I suggested getting two and giving them a cute name like Jack and Jill.  We tossed around some names and decided on Sampson and Delilah.  Then we only ended up taking one puppy, Sampson. I found out after the fact that the biblical spelling is Samson.  Oh well it fits him. :-)  Hubby only agreed to let me rescue Delilah (who was named Ginny at the time) if I changed her name.

It was a small concession for the joy she brings.

Thoughts from a Winter Walk and Advent Calendar for Dog Lovers Day 24

Lauranne said, “I have those thoughts. On my weekend walk with BD it was “if I slip and fall on my arse who’s going to help me get up”

Oh I think that all the time too.  I wonder, will Delilah just drag me on my ass, or will I drop the leash and just lie there waiting for someone to find me?

Not last New Year’s eve, but the year before I actually did fall.  Sampson the little dick just ignored me but Delilah came back and waited until I could get up.  I called Hubby from the cell, but after a minute caught my breath and didn’t need him to come get me.  I thought I had dislocated my shoulder, but turns out it was just a hard fall.

Always carry a cell phone or whistle!

Emma said, “Mom has no footwear leaks, but she has three of us on leash and we do sometimes act up. Katie will refuse to walk which is a cue to Bailie and I to play chase and wrestle. Normally we only do these things when other people walking dog(s) are approaching or on a busier road. Lots of loud bad language comes out of Mom’s mouth.”

LOL Emma, if someone actually heard me on our walks, they would never believe I love my dogs.  I say lots of bad words too!

Cupcake’s comment cracked me up, “When we walk, Mom thinks, “Isn’t Cupcake the cutest most well-behaved dog? She is so friendly and smart and sweet. And most of all, she never eats goose poop or tries to fall down the sewer or gets scared of helicopters flying over us.”

Yeah, I’m sure that’s exactly what mom is thinking Cupcake!

Hawk said, “First, Sampson, your human is calling you so you stay close and the hunters don’t think you’re a deer or a farmer doesn’t think you’re a coyote after their stock.”

You make a good point Hawk, I do worry about that, but I’m usually so loud when we’re walking that I’d scare off any deer.

Christmas Reflections

Hailey and Zaphod said, “So Christmas day after our gifts, we went to the movies and we had leftovers for dinner.”

We both had yesterday off so we went to the movies then.  But we did play a video game after everyone had left. The dogs (of course) were sacked out on the couch!

Leslie said, “(I need to meet Sampson so I can get some Labby loving. I miss it so.)”

I think you should Leslie, you will get lots of loving from Sampson, he would absolutely adore you.

Oz the Terrier said, ” I tried to trip Ma on Christmas Eve afternoon when she was shredding the Lechon Asado (roasted pork); she didn’t trip but she bobbled and some pork went flying…right into my mouth!”

Oh Oz, you naughty boy!  LOL Did bad words come out of Ma’s mouth?

Frankie and Ernie said, “Somehow We missed out on the last two days of the Christmas Pressie give aways.”

You can still enter!  It’s open until the 31st.  Day 23 is here and Day 24 is here.

Marquie said, “We have to keep a gate up to discourage Petal, and her cousin Penny, from coming into the kitchen to “help””

Our kitchen is set up in such a way that I can’t block it off.  It is a feature of the house that I’m not fond of.

I’m still loving this picture.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA In fact, I think I might frame it!

That’s a wrap for this week’s edition of Follow-up Friday, thanks for joining me and have a marvelous weekend!

    Thanks for hosting the follow up hop! Sometimes Mom does worry about what the neighbors think when she has one of her fits with us out walking, but we know she loves us, and the neighbors should know that she isn’t as awful as she can sound and look at times. We know what buttons to push and enjoy pushing them sometimes :) Have a great weekend!

    Hi Y’all!

    Lots of talk of bad words today. Hmmmm…My Human’s idea of a bad word is to use my full name loudly.

    I help my Human when she can’t get up. She trained me to come stand beside her and she puts her hand on my withers to help herself up.

    Oh, they really do shoot dogs here. Our human niece had her dog shot when a neighbor spied it running near the fence where the livestock were penned. Our niece was walking behind the dog, but he couldn’t see her. Coyotes had been killing his livestock, so he shot the dog.

    Y’all come by now,

    Great follow up! I’m still behind on reading due to the holidays/new puppy, so it was good to have a review, and I had to go back and read the winter walk story. Lately I’ve been forgetting to grab my cell phone, and you’ve reminded me of why I need to have that security with me! :)
    I was glad to hear I’m not the only one with walking issues….Emma’s comments especially made me laugh too!

    If I could have done anything besides curl up in the fetal position, I might have done him serious harm! lol I’d have liked to have pulled a knot through something!
