Autumn approaches and so does Ike

Baby’s sore spot Regis straining to get up

It’s been a few days since I’ve written. and those days have been hard since my last post. My one and only Baby, DoberDiva and Mother Superior, has had ill health. She and Regis both. Their bodies are wearing out and failing them. Walking has become difficult, and it’s very sad around Fort Doberdale. Baby’s gone to an acupuncture session/laser massage last Saturday, then by Tuesday, her fur began falling out! I’m going back with Baby tomorrow for another session, and to get medicine for this. The girl (17-year-old) who did the laser massage, didn’t wash the head of the machine when she brought it out to use on Baby or when she put it back, so I have to assume it does not get cleaned. I called the vet, and of course, it’s not their fault. Baby’s skin was fine till this appointment. Let’s see how much more revenue this brings in for them. Argh!

Please keep Baby and Regis in your prayers.

My new computer, which was 87 days old, died on Sunday, which is a lucky thing because Costco has a 90-day return policy on computers. I returned it on Tuesday, and ordered a new one. It hasn’t been sent yet, so I haven’t got a computer at home, which sucks!

Hurricane Ike as of Friday, Sept 5, 2008

Ike, a hurricane, is coming. This doesn’t seem like a warm and fuzzy weather system. The NE side of the storm is the worst side, which is what is currently coming towards Fort Doberdale. We are worried!

Raven with the Hibiscus remnant that went down the hatch Raven hunting a hibiscus

Then there’s Raven. She is a comical PITA. She has gone into a new stage in life. That is she sees things on the ground and thinks they are going to attack her, so she barks at them until she can eat them. Here she is after overcoming a threat from a red hibiscus which laid on the ground.

Raven with the grass remnant Bunny eats that grass remnant

Next we have her with a blade a grass dangling from her front teeth. She pranced around the back yard with that thing hanging out of her snout tip for some time. Shaking didn’t remove it. Nothing she did removed it. It took Bunny Butt to remove it, and what did Bunny do with it? She ate it!


Today, I took newspapers to the Wildlife Center and met this peacock.


About Helen

I’m a Southern California living in South Florida. I’ve been here for 10 years as of October 1, 2007. No matter where I live, I’m a dog lover, and my breed is the Dobermann Pinscher of the Working Group. I am also fond of the Australian Shepherd of the Herding Group. My life revolves around my dogs, which is something those family members of mine don’t understand. So I’m an island in that respect, but have built friendships with those who are doggie lovers and respect the canine as much as I do. Some do rescue, some train in, compete in, and judge AKC trials. The common thread is our dogs are family.
