Today marks a year since I lost my best friend Foxxy Cleopatra, and not a day goes by.
Some days I awake and forget she’s no longer with us, and think like I’m going to be consumed by grief.
I miss her very much, but I’m grateful that I was loved by and loved the most amazing friend a human could ever ask for. For twelve years, from coast to coast, I carry her forever with me. 🧡🤍🖤
René, only shorter - when it's our dinner time, he has a tendency to lie like this expectantly, seemingly so that he can use his hooked feet to quickly pull himself up to catch any inaccurately-thrown treats that might otherwise pass overhead. I'm sure it's all very practical, but from my point of view I think he looks hilarious. #dogstodon #dogs
Puppy is hanging with his best buddy (friend's dog) while we are away on a weekend get away. #dogstodon We miss him, but he's having his best time right now.
Adventures in bad ideas
#dogstodon RIP Angel
Not sure if this will work...
Good morning, Fediverse!
My favorite muppet in the world, #VestaVeneraCaroli is getting spayed today.🎉
Send love so we tell her about all the amazing Mastodenizens whose wishes are responsible for all the extra treats she gets when she gets home after and during recovery, and for being the goodest girl!🤎🙏
Took a picture of this plant to figure out why my dog Mayhem won’t stop eating the leaves.
We will be on a walk and every time she smells this plant in the brush she’ll run over and chomp the leaves off.
To my (allergic) horror: this is the Giant Ragweed.
And that led me on a whole journey of learning about this (edible!) plant—although I have a feeling I’d go into anaphylactic shock if I ate it.
Hey, meet Toby. 😂 He's our Romanian rescue that we've had since March. He's a wee nutter of unknown breed but he's brilliant.
Guten Morgen, liebe @Mirabeaulacht.
Unsere Nacht war nicht ganz so ruhig. Bei der 🧑🦰 piepte kurz vor Mitternacht das Ersatzteil (die Insulinpumpe) und wollte Futter. Und dann hat sie gelesen. Wahrscheinlich hatte sie mal wieder zu viele Gedanken im Kopf. 😒
Aber heute Morgen haben wir eine schöne Frührunde gemacht. 🙂
Tonight we took our kid and little Tito, who were visiting, to the airport to go back home. And we came home to a dog-less house for the first time in 17+ years. It feels so strange. This will take some adjusting. #dogstodon
So far, we've had updates on the momma dog and two of Myrtle's siblings.
This is mom. Mom is apparently a delightful dog--interestingly, mom can't take Heartgard or flea/tick meds because it gives her tremors. It's not uncommon in collies, and when we got Myrtle's DNA done, collie came back as part of her mix...so we figure the mom is where she got her collie-dom.
My husband has been wondering for a while how the other pups have fared (and the mom)--not just because Myrtle is a fantastic dog, but because she's had some health problems. Aside from being allergic to damn near everything, she came from the rescue with giardia and medication-resistant hookworm (which is apparently a big problem in the south).
So the other day he emailed the rescue to see if he could get in touch with the ppl who rescued her sibs.
This sweet baby girl was just giving me kisses as I dried her wet fluffy butt after her daily swim. She loves swimming so so much, I'm using the anticipation as a free training aid and she's such a smart, good girl. #DogsOfMastodon #dogs #monDog #mastodog #shihtzu #dog #cute #cuteposting #swim #dogstodon
