I never had the pleasure of meeting Zsa Zsa, but I used one of lisarea's photos of her to turn into a drawing to test out my vintage plotter. All the posts about Zsa Zsa on this forum over the years have made me feel that I did know her, better than many of the dogs I have met in person. :(

The Original Zsa Zsa Thread

When we first brought her home, she slept a lot. She'd been living in a shelter featuring all the dog cages in one massive open space. The dogs barked 24/7, so real sleep was just a crazy fantasy for those doggos.

More than once in those early days I'd leave the living room with the TV off and ZZ sleeping on the couch only to come back later to find the TV turned on and ZZ watching Tool Academy on VH1. As with all pibbles, she loved her trashy reality teevee.

As with Flossy, we had Zsa Zsa euthanized at home. It will come as no surprise to anyone who met her that her last official acts in this life were making friends with the vet and smooching his leg.

Here's Meep checking out kitty TV - it's on YouTube and the kittehs are fascinated by it. Meep couldn't stand on her own a month ago, and look at her now! She gets a little better each day.

We had to make the decision to put Alice down today :(

She had been struggling with canine degenerative myelopathy for a while now. Basically she was losing all movement in her back legs and becoming more and more incontinent. She couldn't get up on her own anymore and was pretty wobbly when she was up. She just didn't have much quality of life anymore and it was time.
Alice in her jammies
IMG_20201029_185237262.jpg

Alice had character, she once stole a whole pineapple and just took it back to her bed and curled up with it like a dragon with it's hoard. :hoard: She loved to steal stuff, but almost never chewed anything. If your shoe was missing, check Alice's bed :)

She'll be missed.

She was a good girl.

I dog-napped this puppy on Labor Day. Her name is Rosie.



Her owners gave her free rein to go wherever she wanted. She was in danger of being shot for chasing chickens so I swooped her up and spirited her away to Tennessee.

I have since regretted my actions, even though my sister says I've done the right thing. I'll probably give her back. Maybe.

I'm sorry, slim. That's a cruel disease, and you did right by her. She was a good girl.

Sharon: I vote keep her. She'll be safer and happier with you.

Humans: We have spent thousands of years shaping this wild creature into a docile tool and companion.

Also humans: Be free and run wild, like your ancestors!

If her previous humans weren’t being responsible with her to the point she’s likely to be killed, losing her is potentially only a matter of time.

Or maybe not. My sister now tells me the owners in question have replaced Rosie with another puppy. So, as with many other cases in my life, things will resolve themselves if I ignore them long enough.

Welcome to the Dee household Rosie Josie.
