We Interrupt the Fictional Story of Chaplin Eating Something and Getting in Trouble with the Actual Story of Chaplin Eating Something and Getting in Trouble

Today’s regularly scheduled blog post will be appearing next week instead as our main character in this particular series, Chaplin, decided to demonstrate how accurate his characterization is by eating something he shouldn’t have and landing at the emergency vet. 🚨🚑 After Chaplin spent most of the day and evening in the vet, the final verdict (via ultrasound) was that there’s no blockage, and so surgery was (narrowly) avoided. But the weekend was definitely shot even more than most weekends are these days …

Tune in next week when the tale of the ice cream cup will continue!

Home Is Where The Yard Is

Spicoli (from inside house): “Dude! I did not!”

I only voted once for myself, because that’s how I roll, which means I got an actual vote from somebody who isn’t me.  I don’t know who else voted for Shards, but thank you, anonymous person!  And another thank you to anyone else who might have the time and inclination to pay Underground Book Reviews a visit and place a vote for Shards — as far as I can tell, no login or account is required!

Trixie Tuesday: I’m Going Completely Dental I Must Say

hello gentle readers.  this is the beautiful trixie.  i’m afraid i must interrupt the parade of puppy pictorials to let everyone know i am going in for a broken tooth extraction today as well as for an ultrasound to check out my internals.  apparently the doctor who recently stole some of my blood ran some tests on it and is a little concerned about my kidneys or my spleen.  i guess if those aren’t working up to snuff then she cannot sell my blood for as much on the open market.  hmm, perhaps i should sic my new sister on the doctor. drawing blood makes her a vampire, right?

the doctor also says i need to change foods to something with less protein.  i may be willing to give up my evanger’s braised beef canned food but nobody had better try to get me to eat a salad.

i don’t see any evil perpetrators, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t there.

anyway these procedures are all fairly routine but you know we sixteen-year-old girls can be a bit delicate, so i would appreciate whatever tail wags and purrs might be available. meanwhile, evil perpetrators beware! i may be out of commission for the day, but there’s a new deputy in town, and she’s a little bit crazy.


this is the beautiful trixie, signing off for the day. but rest assured i will be back!

evry dog has his day!!!
