Sleeping Beauty…

Willow Shenanigans: 20 May 2021

Good day everyone,

When I adopted Willow a week ago I never thought that she would settle in so easily.

I am very happy to report that she is now the queen of the castle. She has every one wrapped around her paw.

She loves sleeping under my desk. She is a very busy girl and I have to do as much work as I can while she is sleeping. Since the photos was taken we Willowfied the area under the desk. Don’t want her chewing on the power cords.

Best place ever….
Oooh I am so tired…. Being curious is hard work.
This is my spot. At Mom’s feet while she is working.

The first day she made herself at home on Lian’s bed. She also spend her first night with him.

When I tell her no, when she is doing something wrong she runs to his room. Big brother will protect me…

Keeping Lian company while he is working.
Just love sleeping
“Brrr it is cold so Lian shared his blanket with me. “

Since day one she found her way outside on her own. She loves playing with her toys. I am busy teaching her to bring the ball to me. It takes time but one of these days we will play fetch. I think she is afraid I won’t throw it or stop playing with her when I ask for the ball.

Love Exploring the garden.
It’s my toy…

Love playing with sticks.

She loves playing with plastic bottles. Just like Ruby did. I first saw her stealing the bottle from the laundry room. I took it from her and gave it to her a day later when she sniffed it. I want to teach her to ask for things not just take.

Keeping myself busy with an empty plastic bottle.

She loves visiting her new grandfather. When she hears him she will sit at the gate and moan. If I don’t come she’ll come and moan next to me. That is my q to take a coffee break, so that we can go visit for a while.

I love visiting grandpa, he always gives me treats…

When we watch TV she is on the couch with us. Some nights even Shadow will come and join us.

The best place in the world next to my mommy.
Resting my head on mommies leg. That’s life….

She slept with us on the bed for 2 nights, but I think I am to restless for her liking. She will jump off and go sleep on her blanket on the couch. She don’t like the dog bed at all. She likes to sleep all stretched out, and then she doesn’t fit in the bed. Maybe she will use it when she is older.

Willow and all the other pets are getting along great. It is just Shadow that needs to warm up to her. But they are eating in the same room, and sometimes they are close enough so that I can stroke both of them at the same time. We are making progress slowly but surely.

Willow loves chewing on anything she can carry in her mouth. She loves water and put her paws in the water bowl when she drinks. She has a thing for eggshells.

Well that’s it for now friends. I will keep you updated.

Please pardon the quality of some of the photos. I took it with my phone and did not always have the time to finetune the settings. Just had to snap to get the moment.

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my post.

Have a wonderful day.

I was busy editing when Shadow jumped on my desk and made himself comfortable on my arm.

King of the house…

Hi everyone,

Shadow loves sleeping on the kitchen table. I have a special tablecloth just for him.

I love my Story Maker App. I use it to post my cellphone photos.

Thanks for stopping by.


RIP Ruby

It is with a very heavy heart I am writing this post.

Ruby had a tough weekend and yesterday she got paralyzed in her back legs.

She was in so much pain and since Tuesday till yesterday she lost another 5 kg.

I could not stand to see her suffer anymore and even though I can’t afford after hour vet services. The way she looked at me to please help her. My heart broke so I phoned the hospital to let them know I am bringing her in.

They kept her overnight on a drip and did some more tests and x rays this morning. It was a tumor all the time. The Dr phoned me just after 10 this morning with the news. They missed it on the first x rays. There was nothing they can do for her anymore.

Ruby gave me the best 7 years of her life and I will miss her a lot. She is the one who licked my tears away when my whole life fell apart.

R. I. P my Ruby girl will always remember the good times.

Project 365 Photo a day: 365/172 – Armand and Ogies

Tonight we were watching a movie and when I walked pass Armand on the chair I saw this cute photo. I ran to get my camera and in theĀ process I nearly dislocated my little toe against our bed…. Ouch Ouch but I got my photo.

Armand and Ogies. Oh how these two love each other.
