Magic Words

Dogmana's Woofs and Wags

Magic words!

Here is a question for everyone. When you accidentally step on your dog do you apologize? When you think about it the dog probably just thinks he is getting special attention. However, since I was a child I have always said I am sorry to my dogs if I know I caused pain. It is just what I do.Interesting how different dogs react to my apology too. This morning Sangria literally ran into my finger and it went directly into her eye. She didn’t make a sound, but I felt horrible, though she did it herself. I immediately called her to me, and when I picked her up and put her in my lap to hug her she wanted none of it. For a half second I was able to pet her and cuddle her and say I’m sorry, for my own sanity, and then she was off…

Firsts and lasts

Dogmana's Woofs and Wags

I now have five days until I enter class. I have six days to the magical moment when in walks my new partner. I have seven days before I pick up the harness for the first time in a walk in public. These will be our firsts together on a new journey that will hopefully be a long and loving one.

In the week leading up to these firsts, though, there are lasts for Allegra and me. I took her to have her bathed yesterday, her last with me. Oh how beautiful and oh so soft she is. We will have our last shopping trip, our last night at bingo and of course the last time feeding her and taking her outside. Our last night will be a short one since I leave for the airport at 3:00 a.m. This girl doesn’t like to fly or the sound of jets…

Only a Queen Can Make You a King

Crazy Cat Lady Rantings

Wrap your arms around me tight. Press your lips to mine. Remind me of why I should love you.

Enter into my temple sacrificing all that you have. Lay out at my feet your promises of devotion.

If I find you sincere I will accept the offerings, blessing you with my many riches. I will make you king to my queen and we will rule together.

White Hot

Crazy Cat Lady Rantings

Twilight taunts me before my eyes. My heart beating to a tribal drum. The fire that lights up the night sky calls to me to join him.

I fear to take his hand for I might burn, but my passion is too deep to ignore. His fire is white hot releasing my soul as our bodies meet. Together we will reshape the universe just for us, even if only for a moment.

Tomorrow dawn brings anew and all will be back to normal. You will retake your place back amongst the stars and I will slip into the shackles of my earthly life once again, waiting for another sunset, and another chance to burn.

Sangria the Great

Dogmana's Woofs and Wags

My name is Sangria and I was homeless till my mommy took me in. Mommy and I share the same handicap. We’re both blind. But that doesn’t stop me! I am 11 months old of the delightful Goddess breed of mutt. Playful and loving with a willful mind of my own, I take no prisoners in play and snuggles. I’m now part of a mixed fur, feather and bipedal family. Stay tuned for my many adventures.

Bird in the hand

Get to know my good friend and follow her adventures.

Dogmana's Woofs and Wags

Let me introduce you to the rest of my animal planet.

His name is Tommy, a story of its own, and he is a Quaker parakeet. Actually, I call him my pitkeet as you couldn’t get me to put any body part close to his cage. I did once and it was no kiss that landed on my arm. However, we do have some interesting conversations.

I digress from my story. My roommate and I had the dogs out to play on a particularly beautiful Florida day. Back and forth they ran. From the fence we heard an interesting bird sound. When my roommate turned around, there was Tommy sitting on the fence. Oh if we had only known who he was then. (smiley) She put her hand down near him, (brave girl) and asked if he wanted to step up. Of course he did, and of course my roommate…

A morning in the life

Dogmana's Woofs and Wags

Who said retirement would be less busy? This is my morning!

I lie in bed between sleeping and waking. It feels so good. Just as I head toward just a few more minutes of sleep I hear a sharp squeal. Time to leave the warmth of my bed and get going. The squeal? It is from my Jack Russell/greyhound mix, at least that is what I think she is. Oh yes, she is totally blind, and how she knows it is morning … Maybe the same way I do?

I roll out of bed and to the tune of intermittent squeaks and barks, (working on curbing this, but she is a hound after all!, I dress and go to my kitchen to make coffee and get my leash. My guide is quietly in bed. She knows Sangria won’t let her go out first so, “whatever! I’ll stay here and be…
