Monday Mischief: Katy's New Bed

Katy has always been challenging when it comes to trying new things. It isn't that she doesn't eventually like them, but she has to be pushed to try something. Then nothing comes between her and the things she's adopted and don't pretend she ever didn't love it. Thus is the challenge of trying to see if she truly doesn't like something or if she just is challenged by the idea it is new and different.

It has become clear that the bed we bought for her when she was adopted is clearly not the bed of her dreams. Bailey had an early version of the same bed and loves it. Katy has never taken to it. She has always been a side sleeper and needs a bed she can spread out on. She and Bailey have a couple of mat beds downstairs that she loves, so we decided it was time to get her something she'd use upstairs during regular sleeping hours. However, bribery is involved.

She spends a little time each morning with a bone to get used to the bed. So far she seems far more interested in this bed than in any previous option we've tried. However, she hasn't surrendered just yet. She is still sleeping on the floor.

The Evil Cancer Strikes Uncle Shadow

Dear Paw Friends we are asking for all your dog prayers and wishes. Our Grandma's best pal Shadow, a Miniature Schnauzer has terminal cancer and grandma is devastated. Shadow gave Grandma the strength to get through the loss of Grandpa to cancer and she just lost her sister, Mom's Aunt, to cancer a couple of years ago. We are praying that Shadow has an easy trip over the Rainbow Bridge and that Grandma is able to deal with another loss to the evil cancer.

Wordy Wednesday: What to Do When Thomas the Tank Engine Invades Your Home

We have been away from blogging most of the summer and once again Mom apologizes. She's been off doing PT for her hip and knee and long stretches at the computer seem to aggravate the condition.

This picture was taken a few weeks ago when one of our favorite littles was visiting. He keeps a supply of Thomas Wooden trains at our house and while Bailey loves playing engineer with him, Katy is a bit more wary of where those train tracks and trains are traveling. While the small one was also thrilled with the construction equipment that was working down the street, including the highlight of the day, a street sweeper, Miss Katy decided a place of retreat was required from those dangerous machines. She tried to convince the little one he needed to join her, but no luck there. The little sheep do not recognize the dangers some times.
