A Change In Sleeping Arrangements

We were all snoring away in Hu-Dad’s study when we made a change in sleeping arrangements, making a certain younger brother happy.

For the longest time, Frankie has had a blanket right beside Hu-Dad’s printer, deep in the corner of his study. He has fluffed the blanket to just the right specs, ensuring a good nap.

Except, Boom Boom wanted to be near him. Over time, Landon would get closer and closer until, recently, he would race to the blanket first and beat Frankie to the spot. So what did Frankie get?

His own blanket.

His own blanket, though he has spilled out on to the rug as well.

Yes, Hu-Dad snagged another blanket and put it in the opposite corner just for Frankie. Now Landon has his own blanket in one corner and Frankie has a blanket in the other corner.

Problem solved, right?

Nope. There is just one tiny problem left.

Way Back Wednesday

This week’s Way Back Wednesday is one of the most popular and searched for posts on our entire site. Considering we have over 3500 posts, that is really saying something.

Back when we were dealing with an emergency surgery with Natasha, Hu-Dad decided to explain how he went about Making Canine Medical Decisions – with four simple criteria. The post has been shared hundreds of times and we shared it with a friend just yesterday. We hope you find it as helpful as others have.

    Boom Boom and Frankie are like Leena (husky) and Weezer (cat) are here at the house. Weezer gets close to me sitting down….dog immediately does her Star Trek impression…she becomes a Klingon…..he he he.

    I always remember that post…Even before you mentioned it. (I’ve been lurking for a long time before i started posting like a derranged stalker :P)

    The vet tech and vet that came in Monday morning for Leena was like meeting your vet for the first time. They came in, asked us a question as they semi tepidly reached out for Leena to smell them as I reassured them that all she ever wanted was someone to rub her constantly for her entire life. Which she immediately stepped forward a few steps, even hobbled, and insisted they now do. A few seconds later they were both in the floor poking and rubbing at her trying to figure out where the sore spots were. Even when they hit one, she’d yelp while still insisting for more scrubs.

    Best part was when they took her without me to the xray table. Sounded like they were murdering her. When she doesn’t want to do something or is scared/annoyed….she makes a scream that draws people in from everywhere. She did it at a sporting gear store here in Johnson City while I had her on the stairs. They thought I was beating her she was so loud. When they brought her back they swore “We were just trying to get her to lay down on the xray table…once she did, she was a perfect angel”. They saw me laughing and understood it was her typical behavior.

    …okay…thats a big brain dump..but I had to share 😛

      Unlike Typhoon, Landon (mostly) waits for Frankie’s approval to wrestle.

    I’ll say it again… I absolutely love how much Landon loves his big bro Frankie!
    Also, thank you for this repost of Canine Medical Decisions… this is extremely helpful because it is so hard to let go when that time comes.
