Furry Five on Herding Humans


Hi, we are the Furry Five and we are guest bloggers here on sanseilife.

We are a new pack consisting of:

Roscoe Mania

Monty Mayhem

Ranger Danger

Remmy Renegade

Buster Beatdown

Our post today is describing the trials of herding humans.  They love this activity called “hiking” but they are so clueless.  Our job is to keep them on the trail.  We were herding three humans but the male kept forging ahead.  He is a real trouble maker and we are going to have to pow-wow to discuss how to get him under control.

Wish us luck.

Invisibility, My Friend in the Wheelchair and Good Tears

Rommy sleeping

Hi, my name is Rommy and I am a guest blogger here on sanseilife.

Although I am no longer in this world my mom thinks about me a lot and I try to send her memories to remind her about the great life we had together.

I reminded mom about a friend I made one day.  Laura was in a wheelchair and was very sad.  I went right up for her so that she could pet me.

She told my mom that she was amazed that I was not afraid of her or her wheelchair.

Mom and I would occasionally go on outings with Laura.  She knew all the friendly people and cool places that didn’t mind me coming in their stores.

One day we were in a favorite store and about five people talked to Laura and asked her about her dog friend.  She was the happiest I had ever seen her.  Suddenly animated and laughing the whole afternoon.

Later she told my mom, with tears in her eyes, that she loved going places with me.  She said she used to be invisible but now when people saw me they saw her too.  I thought people tears were a sad thing but that day I learned people tears can be a good thing too.

Laura is here with me and met me at the Rainbow Bridge to welcome me.  She doesn’t need her wheelchair anymore.

Mom always tries to take a moment to smile and say hi to those invisible people and I just reminded her why.

Guest Bog Post From Monty, Quilting by Aunt Sandy


Hi, my name is Monty and I’m a guest blogger here on sanseilife.

One of my favorite topics is my Aunt Sandy’s quilting adventures.


Here mom didn’t think the pink squares were going to work but it was awesome.  Mom took a horrible picture so you can’t really tell how awesome it was.  Aunt Sandy is way more talented than Mom’s awful picture!


A very cute baby blanket don’t you think ?

Hot Day Dog Treats

imageSimple and quick freezer dog treats.

Hot Day Dog Treats

One small can of high-quality high taste dog food.  Mix with approximately triple quantity plain no sugar yogurt or Greek yogurt.  Fill 3 ounce Dixie bath cups 1/3 to 1/2 full, then fill cups with plain yogurt to top.   Add a mini dog treat on top and put in freezer.    Freezes fast due to small size.

Add ins: spoonful of pumpkin, ground flax seed,  small piece of fresh parsley or mint, small slice of fresh fruit, small piece of cooked liver, sprinkle nutritional yeast on top, other healthy stuff.

My doggies don’t eat the cups.  You may wish to peel the cups off the treat.




Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….
