Good Morning all, WOW we cannot believe it is like 5 more days till the new decade starts and all we can pray is that it will bring peace, love and hopefully stop abuse of all kinds all over the world.
We have been very busy in the Layla Neighborhood as I have been looking after my neighbors year old puppy, Gidget. It has been quite an eye opener for me as I have never had a puppy so am learning a lot LOL. It is one thing reading all about it and another actually spending time with one.
I am loving it but Layla is not that impressed, as Gidget is a bundle of bouncing energy whereas Layla is the mellow quiet dog who just wants to walk, eat and sleep.
So to share with you more about Gidget, she wrote an email to her Mom this morning and am sharing it here as it explains exactly what is happening here.
This is Gidget woofing here, how are you ? I am being a very good girl although Auntie got angry with me last night cos I decided to get into the recycle and pulled everything out all over the floor and made a mess. It was fun especially watching Auntie clean up afterwards. She is horrible cos she then sprayed the bag with stinky apple cider vinegar so I did not go close to it again. she is mean LOL.
I also make her chase me to get the harness on cos I do not like it but she will not let me go out without it, not fair.
BUT I am having lots of fun with all the toys, have killed two already LOL, Layla hides from me in her box for peace and quiet but this is the best holiday ever.
I am now resting after a long long walk this morning, lots of new smells and it was exciting but Auntie would not let me eat anything off the sidewalk and the leash she has on me keeps me really away from it all plus cos it is rope it is yucky to chew, Gidget has chewed to leashes, one since with me.
Love from your energizer bunny (Auntie calls me that)
So as you can all see she is keeping me on my toes and since the recycle incident she tried climbing into the fridge when I opened it, has pushed Layla off the bed and in a nutshell I am laughing a lot over it all. I think Layla is going to need a holiday after this.
Gidget is going to be with us for another 5 days and then Layla will have her peaceful house back to herself. She is being amazing though and I cannot complain.
Other than that I am once again preparing slowly for the FireWorks night which I hate and wish they would ban, it is not fair to the animals plus a waste of money which could be used on much better causes.
It also concerns me as so many shelters are at this moment over flowing thanks to the lousy humans who dump their pets before a holiday, and then are stuck with an extra load of pets that have fled from fear of the fireworks.
So please please keep your pets safe and make sure their microchip is updated, that they are indoors and most important that they are away from any open door or window so that they cannot escape.
Our next blog will be in 2020, Happy New Year Everyone, May the New Year bring you lots of health, happiness and whatever else you wish for.
With a woof and love From Layla
Fortunately, New Years Eve fireworks isn’t a thing around here – you can only spend money on that so many times a year… You’re right. The expense, especially for municipalities, is getting out of control especially when we need more things like expanded libraries – and dog parks. I’ve never had a puppy (or a kitten) either – always only full-grown rescues.
Sherri I agree with you, watching them burn money which could be used for so much makes me sick inside. It has been quite interesting having a puppy LOL
I hate how humans are so heartless dumping pets like they are old cast off toys they don’t want anymore. Grrrrr Come on people wise up – pets are for life for for a year or two.
The Gidget report made me laugh out loud – that’s a little monkey nOT a puppy!
Merry Christmas Layla ad Mom and we hope you had the best of days.
Marjorie she is a hoot and keeping me on my toes. I so agree with you regarding dumping animals, I wonder if they do that to their parents also as they obviously do not care. Happy New Year xxx
I’m sure Gidget is having a blast and how nice that Layla is tolerating it all. Fireworks are legal here so it’s always scary, especially for our out side feral kitties. Happy New Year from all of us and thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
Hi Brian and thank you for your Thursday blog hop, Happy New Year and please be safe
Puppies are such a challenge! We have a friend who has a new puppy and he is into everything. We hope you have a wonderful new year.
Thank you and yes like kittens they are handfuls. Happy New Year
How nice that Layla is tolerating her little guest so well. Gidget is adorable (isn’t it amazing the amount of trouble a puppy or a kitten or a young human can cause?). One of the good things about living out here in the frozen northland is that New Years doesn’t mean fireworks- it’s always freezing and often snowing like tonight. 6-10 inches and then some ice. Yuck – but no fireworks unless my redneck neighbors shoot some stuff off.
You are so lucky not to have any fireworks, I hate them. Gidget is adorable and LOL keeping us on our toes, Layla is really been great with her
