Sunday Pause (Paws): Getting To Know Someone New

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take some time to get to know someone.

If you go to church on Sunday you probably have a greeting time where you shake your neighbor’s hand and meet someone new. For some this is something they look forward to, they may love meeting new people. But for some this might make you a bit uncomfortable, you’re a bit more shy and unsure of new people.

Today I have a little story about two cats getting to know each other and one was pretty unsure of this new addition to the family.

Dakota has shared his home with my cousin Trish & her family for many years. They just recently decided to adopt a kitty.

Tuesday Tales: No Longer Weekly

READ ALL ABOUT IT

Version 2

Hello all. As Cino is reading about above, I will be taking a break from weekly Tuesday Tales. In case, you do not know what my Tuesday Tales are, they are stories I share about animals on…well Tuesdays. These stories are from people I know, stories from the internet, my own stories, and stories from you out there. I will still do Tuesday Tales from time to time, just not weekly.

My intent is not to back off from my blog, but to free myself Continue reading

The Tale of Coolidge & Effie

Coolidge when he was very young (photo taken by Lauren from Eel Creek Chronicles)

Coolidge was one of the rescued kittens from a litter that was found in a field. He was a shy and timid cat, uncertain of his new surroundings, when Lauren and her husband first brought him home. (Lauren’s description sounds similar to what I experienced with Cino when I brought her home). But the patience and love they seem to have had for Coolidge eventually created a beautiful bond.   Continue reading

The tale of Happy, Chou, and Haïden told by Audrey

In my early blogging days when I was still an apprentice. In the days when I would spend hours staring at the computer screen or googling things, researching and using YouTube. I still do that but I’m more of an expert now. Anyways, in those days I was trying out the creation of a photo gallery and customizing it to my menu. I decided to make a photo shoot session with the friendliest being I know…please meet Happy.

This Tuesday’s Tale Is Your Story: Cinnamon & Shadow

The tale of Cinnamon and Shadow told by Jeanne

CINNAMON

CINNAMON

Cinnamon was technically my mother’s dog, but I was like the second mother to her. A lady I used to work for had a miniature poodle named Ginger, and when my mother saw her, she wanted one. When Ginger’s breeder had some more puppies, my mother got one. Amazingly, Cinnamon and Ginger had the exact same markings, only Cinnamon was a little bigger. I suppose that’s not all that surprising since their parents were the same, just from different litters (about 2 years apart). Continue reading

This Week’s Tuesday Tale Is Your Story

The tale of Greta told by Maria

greta-the-dog-maria

We lost our previous dogs, Stormy (a Minpin) and Blanca (a Chihuahua) kind of close together. Stormy was almost 17 and Blanca 15 1/2 years. I was sad when Stormy was gone but really grieved over Blanca. We said we’d take our time, but Blanca died in October of 2014 and on my birthday in March 2015, we brought Greta home from the SPCA. She is part Dachshund and part Chihuahua.

We’ve had two-year-old Greta since she was four months old. She and her brother were given up to our local SPCA. Her papers said her former people “could not keep/do not want.” Well, WE wanted her! I would have taken her brother too but we live in an apartment. Continue reading

This Week’s Tuesday Tale Is Your Story

The tale of Domino told by Suze

When George and I were first married we made a sort of pact..when we adopted a pet it would be one that no one else wanted….an older dog or cat…maybe one with an illness. No baby animals for us. After all, everyone else seemed to want a cute little puppy or kitten. Those little guys had a chance at a home……..the older ones didn’t.

We both loved animals….we both had grown up with the same values, education…..music.

This song sums up how we felt, and still feel.

We only ever made one exception to our “older pet” rule. George was working a Nursing Home and someone had thrown a huge bag out of their truck as they rushed past the home in the middle of a night. George was outside taking a break and saw a bag being thrown………after the truck was gone he heard a sort of whimper and went to investigate.
