The pitter patter of little feet….

It’s been quiet here at Casa de Calliope today.  Actually it’s been normal – it only seems quiet compared to the past two weeks.  We I volunteered to watch our neighbors’ dog, Pneuma, for the holidays.  It’s not a huge departure from normalcy since Pneuma comes over just about every day anyway, but then I ended up volunteering to watch Q & T’s beagle, Murphy, as well.

I feel so bad for my downstairs neighbor.  I’ve only seen her once and she didn’t seem that up for being friends then.  I can only imagine how much she hates my guts now that I added 8 extra puppy feet to the normal sound effects we inevitably provide with our hardwood floors and clompy shoes.

Maybe she and my cat should start a club.

All the dog-parents are back in town and all the dogs sleep in their own beds instead of in my room.  It’s peaceful now, but also a little lonely.  Calliope has no stable of buddies to wrestle and I have no more hound-induced hives all over my arms to talk to.

Murphy and his bitches

Happy Lunch hour!!!

Apparently wire-haired poochies such as Calliope can be prone to backed up/infected hair follicles.  Many of my two readers may remember The Great Lump Scare of 2009.  Well, this is similar to that, but because this lump wasn’t near her eye the vet was able to just lance it.  After the procedure I asked the vet tech if I could see what came out.  He showed me and I immediately regretted asking.  Luckily for you I only had my shitty cell phone to snap a pic:

grodyIn case you wanted more details… looked like a wad of brownish-black pus with hair in it.  Happy Lunch Hour!!!

Just a bit of Friday Joy: Bathing Beauty

Just finished a refreshing shower with Calliope.  She doesn’t really like it, but she doesn’t fight it either.  She climbs into the shower with a really adorable, resigned posture then just stands there while I deep condition her lovely locks.  She turns around when I ask her to and doesn’t try to bust through the shower curtain – even after I get out and wait for her to “shake it off!”  The bathmats seem to bear the brunt of any shower-related dog rage, but honestly, they had it comin’.
