Buddy and I have this little game we play every morning when we wake up I call “The Tail Game” ( original, I know)usually just his tail is the only thing poking out from under the cover and I touch it and say, “What’s THIS?” and then it thumps furiously round and round like an airplane propeller and he emerges and greets me and when he hops off down off the bed I ask him, “Do you have a stretch for me? Can I have a stretch?” and he’ll do this nice stretch and it’s extra cute because he’s so long and lean, and pretty well all the time I ask him for a stretch he’ll do one,too! He has this really putrid breath as well I call “Fish Breath” as it smells like fish, I couldn’t find him the other day and called for him and he quickly ran down the stairs( as he always comes when he’s called; he’s such a good boy) and he leaped into my arms, tail thumping a mile a minute, and kept licking my face, his Facebook page got 58 friend requests in just a DAY and I’VE never had that many in a single day and I’M a person( so I got a good laugh out of it) and after just having it a few days he already has 68 friends from all over the world,too, incl. Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Portugal, etc. he’s a cosmopolitan and popular guy and has a better social life than I do! I also read that him chewing on his hip and upper leg( I call his “chicken leg”) is a nervous habit done out of anxiety(likely left over from abuse from an earlier owner), like how I bite my nails, yet another thing we have in common! We’re the same; we both have anxiety disorders, love the sun and being outside, baths,and a cozy warm bed! We had so much snow as well he got stuck in it with his short, stubby little legs!
Patti also said she called the vet about her dog and he said it’s likely genetic and an inherited seizure disorder as well,esp. as she’s had them previously and seems healthy otherwise and shows no other signs of disease, so I guess like an old friend of mine back in Ottawa who had epilepsy she also inherited from her father and she just took meds to control it, but my experience with dogs and seizures isn’t good; my first Chihuahua puppy had seizures the day after we got him so I rushed him to the vet where he died,and Patti said she made this new friend who’s 70 as well and he drives her places but she thinks he’s taken it the wrong way and thinks she’s like his girlfriend or something now and he keeps phoning her all the time and she says it’s so annoying but I think the poor guy’s just lonely. That’s the thing; everyone seems to be lonely and just wants a friend, a companion, or a mate. I also had a dream last night this huge muscular guy who looked like “Mr. Eko” from the old TV show “Lost” was interested in me which is a laugh as no guys( except for my hubby) ever were so I knew that it HAD to be a dream! I also told him in the dream that I’m married but to keep in touch as you never know what the future holds and I think it’s true what they say; women are always trying to “trade up!”
Hopeful news,too: my hubby has a job interview at his company next week in a tier 3 management position as a supervisor over those who are being outsourced so I hope it goes well and will be encouraging, the 13 YR old said she saw my grade 8 graduation photos( which I posted yesterday on my blog) and said I “USED to be pretty” and “Looked like a model” which I was shocked to hear as it’s the first time in my LIFE that anyone ever referred to me as anything but ugly( and I’ve NEVER been called “pretty”) and that was the same time my nick-names by the bullies in school were “Ugly”, “Dog” and “Frankenstein-Face!” My mother thinks that they bullied me because they were just jealous we had $$$$ and I had nice clothes and nice things, and with my Asperger’s I’ve always been different and it’s like there’s something they could “sense” about me that invited ridicule.The 20 YR old also said he doesn’t think love is real but that it’s a “myth” and a “childhood fantasy” and that “People that stay together( like my hubby and I) are miserable” and it shocked me; he’s too young to be so cynical and even I think love is real and some people ARE lucky enough to find it both ways( you love someone and they love you back) and this is basically a kid-free weekend for me as well: most of the kids are away at a Cadets survival outdoor weekend camp and 2 others are away out of town helping my hubby with his home business, leaving just the 7 YR old here so I’m going to enjoy it by doing nothing and just enjoying the blissful quiet!
