Mookie received her last round of vaccines a couple days ago, so it was finally time for us to get our dog park on.

It’s about 1 mile away which isn’t too far for us, but us long for our tiny dogs.

ES walked/carried Mookie there, I drove and took Gizmo.

We hung out and then exchanged dogs like we were divorced puppy parents with joint custody.

:tmgrin:

But this is dog nature. They have to deal with all sorts of shit - not being able to poop inside, bigger dogs, horrific intruders like postmen or someone walking up the stairs to another flat. And they love it all. Everything is THE BEST.

Cats have it all. They don't have any of those challenges. (The only things they have in common with dogs is the perpetual problems of not eating all the time and not being petted all the time.) There isn't an expression "a cat's life" for good reasons. And yet they are grumpy about it all.

I am, of course, a cat.

Thirded about the henchman thing. It may have started out as a common misconception, but it's a fact now.

I made a poem for Mookie:

Hi, Mookie-moo,
I love you!
Yes, I do.
Do you love me, too?
Do you?
You do!

You say poem, but I'm pretty sure Mookie performs specific actions in response. So this is actually a play, or musical, or even a ballet.

I don't think you guys know this about me, but my favorite configuration of dogs' ears is one-up-one-down. There's a 3-year-old Jack Russel at the dog park who has this and I could die. I have no idea if it's possible to get this on purpose except to adopt an adult dog that has it already. But way back in the day I had a chihuahua-minpin mix that had this, and it's the most adorable thing, I can't even.

So anyway, Mookie is at that stage of her ear development where she has one up and one almost up. I'm sure she's eventually going to land on both up, just like Ripley and Gizmo and most healthy dogs. But for now, for maybe less than a week, I am living the dream.

8AD6842D-F790-4887-86A7-E92CE3575B17.jpeg

I have read on the line that Pomeranians (remember how Mookie is supposed to be a Pom-Chi? Yeah, I seriously don't see it, but it's there in her littermates), that they get a second phase of floppy-eared-ness around 6-9 months, when they get a second set of teeth and their calcium is too busy to make ear cartilage.

So, what say you? How do I make 1U1D permanent? Do I wait till they flop again and then starve her a little bit or what?

Drinking lots of soda may interfere with calcium absorption. Calcium gets circulated throughout your body as it’s used for signaling (like how sodium and potassium are as well).

Mookie doesn’t like soda, but it’s probably more humane than starving her.

I took one of the kittehs to the vet and he's a whopping 21 pounds! :whoa: He's too big. If Badger's going to slim down, everybody's going to slim down. Nobody's really happy about it, needless to say.

We went to the dog park again today. We drove up there and spent over an hour there.



Gizmo mostly watched as is her want.



Mookie played with lots of dogs and people. One lady held her for like 5-10 minutes when we first got there. It was cute.



It was pretty chilly at times with a breeze and JD went back to the car to grab another layer. Gizmo followed her and stared.



Mo looks back at me”Daddy, you going to do something about this?”

Mommy has free will and agency, unlike you little Mo. :tmgrin:



Mookie was pretty concerned as well and cold, so I shared my hoodie with her.



Mookie played with lots of dogs :tmgrin:

I included pics of some of the other dogs we saw and the Elmyra that Mookie met.

Flossy just had what turned out to be pretty major surgery today. She's had this cyst or something on her back for a while. A few of you have seen it. Anyways, since she was diagnosed with terminal cancer, it's gotten progressively worse, but she was feeling OK otherwise, so her new vet decided to go ahead and finally cut it out. And she seems to have gotten the whole thing, but it was HUGE.

So poor Matlock is living on the couch with Flossy now, trying to keep her still so her gigantic incision stops busting open. It's pretty gross, and she's still a bit groggy, but she already has her appetite back, and it's getting harder to keep her from running around.

She usually sleeps through the night well, so I'm hoping that'll give it time to get healed enough that it stops opening back up.

(When the cancer was diagnosed, I promised her she'd never have to go back to the vet again, so I'm pretty contrite right now.)

Make sure Matlock knows to rub that spot on her ears (both at the same time if possible) that she likes and tell her I'm sending my tots and pears for her.

Badger cat, one of the four kittens we rescued from the garage, died yesterday on the way to the emergency vet. I think he had a heart attack.

I'm heartbroken. He was the softest cat in the world. He was my kitty.
