Piko makes me laugh so much. We have this little game where I do this crazy bark at him while he's lying on a pillow next to me on the couch arm and just flies up into the air and into my arms to "wrestle" with me. If they were looking to re-cast Tigger, this dog could do it. He is such a silly jumper. I love this little dog - I hope he finds the perfect home soon. He deserves a family that will love and cherish him as much as he knows he should be. A couple of weekends ago a family was considering adopting him and as soon as I heard the father refer to him as "that thing" I knew they were not a good fit. This sweet little dude being called a THING ?? I was highly offended and so was Piko. Anyone who wants to call Piko a "thing" need not apply to adopt him. Now if someone wants to call him a "King" then that family is probably a good fit.

Jingle once again received a "We have no freaking clue" diagnosis with the same treatment. Since it worked so well last time, maybe she needs another round and it'll wipe it out for good. I just wish we knew what "IT" is. This vet brought up possible neurological problems, but the previous vet said that was completely ruled out due to the temperature. I pointed that out to today's vet (Did I mentioned I was on speaker phone during the appointment
It was a rough day. When you're a single woman, with most of your family moved away or dead, life can feel very very lonely. I know I have friends and people always say "if you need anything, just let me know" but it's hard to put it out there and ask for help isn't it? But today I did and I really appreciate everyone who responded - even if they couldn't go for me. One of my rescue friends, Elisa, told me about a pet sitter that does vet transportation. I definitely need to look into that so I hope more options in the future.
I'm glad the day is over - I had a really hard time concentrating at work. I was upset and stressed all day long at work and just wanted to get home with my little Jingie Bear and I really wished JTK wasn't away at camp. And when I got to my Mom's house to pick Jingle up I was greeted with an accusation of using my Mom's debit card to pay for Jingle's vet costs. Apparently "Gail" thinks she's the only one who has a checking account with Bank of America. ::sigh:: Again, evidence of why I like dogs and cats so much. :)
Piko has been a bit of a grump and he growled at Jingle while ago .... uh uh uh! No way does that happen. And you know what? Right after I moved Piko and wouldn't let him lie next to Jingle, TRex jumped up right next to her and blocked Piko. Isn't that sweet? I'm very proud of TRex for coming to her aid - remember how much he loves cuddling with her during the winter? Good Boy, Rex, take care of your "mommy" for an evening.

Let me give you a little back story on the damn incense - I freaking hate it. Not only does it make an annoying mess but it bothers my allergies to no end. Of course, with Joey's fascination with Egyptian and Japanese culture - incense is a must. A few months ago I had thrown every stick of incense away but missed a container of authentic Japanese incense. We'd actually been battling it out about the incense the past week - as soon as I was asleep or if Joey was home by himself he'd insist on burning it. Even today, I was lying down in my bed because I felt kind of crappy. As I was getting up I realized that Joey had burnt some incense - he even showed me the small stick that was left. I just assumed that he was putting it out ... but I guess not.

I'm telling you - I don't think I'm ever going to fall asleep tonight. It's exhausting being filled with anger and gratitude at the same time.
