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…

Whirl Wind

And then there were three… All the puppies are now sold/gone/& starting their new lives… And yes, I am suffering from empty-nest-syndrome… I am… I miss the little furry jellybeans… I do… I’ll have no excuse now for not brushing my hair or teeth… I’ll have to give Patrice a good soaking & scrubbing & laundering… I miss them… I love my puppies… I love this breed……. …….But the people…….? Not so much… Most all of the families, who wanted…

~~The Irish Wolfhound~~

~~The Irish Wolfhound~~

I love this ancient breed.  It’s history is long and intricate. I hope I’ve done better by it over the years. They are quirky and write their own rules.  I sometimes wonder how they have survived this long. I’d like it to persevere……. …..having said that…..I don’t want to sell any of these puppies……. …..I love these huge, dorky hounds with such natural elegance one moment, while the next, they’ve successfully gotten a soup pot stuck on their heads….. But…

Health Certificates

Health Certificates

When puppies and kittens are sold in the state of Florida, they are required to have an official Health Certificate. It’s the law. It’s a good law…..it helps to safeguard the puppies and their breeders and the buyers. Florida is one of three states who have what are commonly referred to as the “Lemon Laws”. These laws help to curb and/or eliminate unscrupulous breeders and improve the health and care of litters. Puppies & kittens can get their Florida State…

~~~~~For The Want Of A Nail~~~~~

Sometimes it’s the small things that we take for granted……. …..things that can soon become VERY Big/Ugly things when they are omitted or over-looked…… *******Case In Point:  One morning Paulo innocently left for work and neglected to unload the stash of local/re-purposed newspapers from the back seat of his car……. …..sounds innocent enough…..doesn’t it? *******Just Watch As This Minor Event Quickly Escalates And Steam-Rolls Down A Mountainside Of Puppy-Evacuant While Gaining Speed And Strewing Debris & Heartache In Its Wake*******…

One Puppy, Two Puppy, Red Puppy, Blue Puppy

This one has a little star… This one has a little car… Say, what a lot of pups there are… ………….okay…………okay…………. …..I’ll stop now….. If you remember…..Molly’s litter was born on March 2nd…..which is Dr. Seuss’ Birthday… Tra!  La! (hence a tribute to his literature and alliterations) We only just started to advertise them.  They only just turned six weeks old… It’s quite a challenge taking photographs of squirming/pee’ing/poop’ing/cavorting puppies… It’s not a one person project… Nope, not at all……

COVID-19 Quarantine~~~23,731 Days~~~(and counting)…

Wanna know how I got that number?… I just took sixty-five+ years old and multiplied it by 365 days for every year… (my reclusive-tendencies are not a newly-acquired/pandemic-generated character trait) ~~~~~it’s a willing lifestyle~~~~~ ………………………and so, social distancing continues…..as it already has for the last 23,000 days or so……. The puppies are fine…….thank you for asking……. One of my worries is to have enough newsprint to keep shredding…..to keep absorbing their artesian pee’s and covering their ample puppy poo’s……. I…

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…

~~~Gruel Time For Molly’s Puppies~~~

~~~Gruel Time For Molly’s Puppies~~~

This evening’s meal was the first attempt at “solid” food for Molly’s litter… Their eyes are almost completely open now… The formula (just by itself) isn’t filling them up to where they feel happy & content with their full tummies… They can’t sink their newly emerging teeth into it… ~~~~~~~~~~~~~So It’s Gruel Time~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It was one of the easiest transition that we have ever had…….! The little boopers just dove right into the gruel with little to no outside assistance……….
