ASMR and Puppy Babies

ASMR and Puppy Babies

We have three remaining puppies… Val (who we are keeping)…..Penny (who is going to a friend this coming weekend)…..and the little orange ribbon boy. I have trouble remembering the sequence of letters in the SMR-thingie… I don’t know what they stand for… …..I should probably find out… ***What ASMR Means*** In the eighties, I’d heard about right and left brain hemispheric synchronization… (my brain has a continuous Doo-Wop beat…..not really synchronized at all)… I’m thinking that ASMR and the brain-thingie…

~~~An Etude Of Worms~~~

Okay…..parasites probably have nothing to do with music… I was just trying to impress you with using the word “etude”… I was trying to sound cultured… …..I’ll stop now….. But, parasites are a big issue with animals in the sunny/humid/hot/petri-dish we call Florida… Everyone with hooves and paws and claws gets wormed here………….regularly… I think I’ve mentioned before, that when I asked my Internist if we (humans) should be wormed regularly……. …..she just looked at me like I was crazy……….

Quinine And Ivermectin

COVID-19 is still looming out there with it’s slavering, drooling, consuming meanness… I understand that a vaccine is still way over the horizon, somewhere in the distant future… But I’ve been reading about a number of “potential” cures or treatments… I’m not suggesting trying any of them… I’m not endorsing and/or encouraging anything… I’m just reading stuff on-line… So here are a couple I’ve just recently read about… Food for thought… I’ve heard and read a lot about hydroxychloroquine (HA!—my…

Heh…..heh…..heh….. Look what I dodged…..!…..!…..!! …..JURY DUTY….. Heh…..heh…..heh….. …..see there can be minuscule/silver-linings to some very dark clouds….. like missing Jury Duty….. What a shame….. …..a real shame….. …..Jury Duty is something I look forward to….. …..don’t we all…..? But…….unfortunately…….I missed my pre-ordained…pre-selected Jury Duty…..

Quarantine ~~~ Day Number 23,725…..(and counting)

Quarantine ~~~ Day Number 23,725…..(and counting)

We’re all right… We’re sitting tight… However…..Paulo always breaks for freedom at the first opportunity… We make sure he has the appropriate supplies and apparel when he goes out… When he returns home, I make him strip and dump all his clothes in the laundry machine… We store his face mask in the food cupboard over night……. …..(so that the cats don’t nibble through the elastic-ear-holder thingies)……. …..then in the morning…..it gets re-spritz’d with colloidal silver before he leaves the…

Solving World Problems

~~~~~~~My Thoughts On World-Problems~~~~~~~ Like you all know… We have a number of Irish Wolfhound puppies… They just turned four weeks old… All of the pee’ing/poop’ing boogers are happily gobbling up and/or wearing their meals of gruel… ***FYI…..early on…..right after young puppies are born…..you have to encourage them to pee & poop……. …..apparently they don’t know how… So…..soon after a litter of puppies is born…..the majority of my time is spent wiping to stimulate puppy bottoms to encourage them to…

~~Self-Quarantining During~~ COVID-19

This morning I had to go out……. …..(off the property even)……………..wow… I had to drive multiple miles to the clinic of an old vet friend of mine… (I have a lot of old vet friends)…..(both large and small animal vets) I knew I’d been home for quite a while… But, I hadn’t figured out just how long that had been… …..I’ve been home and house-bound a very long time with Molly’s puppies…..or Willow’s puppies…..or Killian’s puppies……. …..since…..forever… I meant it…

COVID-19…..And Social Distancing

COVID-19…..And Social Distancing

I am so grateful to be out in the country… Counting your blessings is always important… “Social Distancing” is easier with more elbow room… We do have more flies… We do have more smells…..(manure being very high on the list)… …..but a cough and a sneeze dissipates more easily out here and can hopefully do less harm……. …..and getting sneezed on by a snotty, green-nosed horse doesn’t count……. …..or so I’ve heard… …..so far our semi-self-imposed quarantine is very similar…

Life is a tap dance… …..if you are lucky…..you can keep up with the tempo… …..as this corona virus pandemic unfolds…..the dance steps keep changing… …..we don’t know what tomorrow will bring…..we’re just taking one day at a time… …..so many things in life are like a Twelve Step Program… …..you can plan ahead as much as you want…..but you still have to take it one day at a time……. …..which is where we are at……. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I’m trying to…
