Anyone who thinks animals have no brains .... watch. For the rest of us, watch & enjoy!






I think Jiffy needs to concentrate better to be featured!!

As you may have seen, I have been MIA, which is why I need to do catch-up. I have been to Auntie Joyce's 90th birthday last Friday. She is Dad's sister, and as you can see that like Dad 2 years ago, she doesn't really look 90.

There are a few more photos that I took and will post in the next couple of days.

Anyway, here is my 365 meme catch-up!


26 - List your pets.

In the past Mum & Dad had 3 spaniels.
Scrappy, a golden one who died when she was 13 and I was 6.
Perry (my first love), a blue roan, and died a month before his 5th birthday.
Misty, a white & orange, who was 15 1/2 when he died.

Now there is Jiffy a Westie who is 10 1/2 now ...and as mad as ever.

My other "first love" was Jaykub, a Welsh Cob cross, who died when he was 10, and then I had my namesake, DJ, a dappled grey Connemara on loan until he was 10 (he now lives in Windsor)


27 - Today I felt really secure knowing ______

That I was able to be with Auntie Joyce on her birthday.


28 - Whose life did you make a difference in today?

I spent the day with Jiffy and Auntie Joyce, but don't know if I made any difference there.  However I did buy Claire's birthday pressie, so next week that will make a diffenence to her!


29 - What is your super power?

To be able to spot a spider and run away!

Work is great, but still only doing half days as I am shattered, although I know that the furniture moving is both stressing and tiring me. Ended up sleeping for an hour this afternoon.

I haven't forgotten you all, just needing to be careful about my energy levels, with all the furniture moving on Saturday and Tuesday.

So will catch up .... I promise.

However, I just wanted to share this video. Great to see war heroes being honoured, especially our 4 (3) legged soldiers.

So I have decided to borrow these dogs -

Being a dad is no easy job. Just ask Kito, who becomes a new daddy and has his hands full looking after his new babies. This humorous commercial from Belgium-based energy company Electrabel, shows just how much extra energy goes into raising youngsters…especially when you have a litter of puppies to look after! It’s very cute, and it gets you thinking about just how much energy consumption you use in your daily life!


debris4spike: (Jiffy - wet pet)
This dog is amazing

debris4spike: (Amen!)


Smart dog!
debris4spike: (Jiffy - sitting)
Not really here as I am having a cleaning +++ day at Mum & Dads. But One of my nephews told me to see this - Stunning. I must get Jiffy to watch it.

I have had a pretty good week - busy at work, but have made a determined effort to do "something" each day ... whether it is to write owing letters, or go shopping.  Procrastination and I are great friends!  As I have just said ina  recent icon post, even my artwork gets delayed.  I want to get back to some writing, as well as still wanting to decorate my bedroom in the next few weeks ... so have made a good effort this week.

I have had a shift each day and have worked on a variety of wards, so that I suppose, has made things interesting and kept me focussed.

But, yes, a good week.

And, as part of my focus I even said I would "meme" ... I still have the 5 character meme to finish but am finding my letter hard.  So [livejournal.com profile] curiouswombat I haven't forgotten.

Until then I have items to talk about that [livejournal.com profile] lupina78 has listed -

A Dog's Purpose? (from a 6-year-old).

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.

As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker 's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.

The little boy seemed to accept Belker's tr! ansition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.
Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ''I know why.''

Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.

He said,''People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?''
The Six-year-old continued,''Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long.''

~~

Live simply.

Love generously.

Care deeply.

Speak kindly.

Remember, i! f a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.

Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.

Take naps.

Stretch before rising.

Run, romp, and play daily.

Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.

On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree

When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

Be loyal.

Never pretend to be something you're not.

If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.


ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY!
