Today’s Haiku on Wind, Monty

image

Colorado is having a high winds today.  Officially called gusty winds, in my neighborhood 25-35 miles per hour.  Just enough to make me and my brother Roscoe anxious.

Here is my Haiku telling you just how I feel:

  • Today’s howling wind
  • Makes me want to chase my tail
  • Rescued, safe haven

Make my Day, Heaven on Earth

image

Heaven on Earth.

A place of love, peace, joy and happiness.

I have been missing my Rommy who I lost in August.  Imagine my surprise to receive this card from my church community.

It made my realize that Rommy provided me with a little bit of Heaven on Earth.

Always there for me.  With his calmness, fears and insecurities lessened.  Anxieties comforted.

He left the knowledge of Heaven on Earth to Roscoe and Monty to share with me and remind me of my good fortune.  Just has he received the knowledge from Maxx and Troi before him.

Furry Five on Herding Humans

image

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.

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 ?

imageThis one is so cheerful!  Sometimes Auntie Sandy makes us doggy nephews our own quilts. We keep track of the really cheerful ones so we can pester her for a new quilts when we need them!

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.
