Well, Saturday night my daughter and I went to a movie and while we were gone we left Bosco out in the yard. Now he is usually pretty good, in fact the note I was left really is hard to believe but none the less I don't know what he does while I'm gone. There could have been raccoons wandering around or something else that set him off. And I apologize if he bothered anyone, but really this note, I feel like it's exaggerated. This is what I came home to at midnight:
So, my apologies. But also my interpretation, my dog barked non stop all night meaning from about 9:10ish when we left until midnight. I guess if a dog is barking and annoying someone that can seem like all night. Non stop? Really? Bosco never barks on and on... we have had him for 4 years now, since he was a puppy and he's never done that. And really? A threat? That is not neighborly at all. And signed the entire neighborhood. So, while I was at the movie for about 3 hours the entire neighborhood got together and formed a united front against my little dog? I don't know. I'm not buying it.
I really am sorry if he barked and caused any disturbance. But at the same time, annoyed by the approach, really was that necessary? That's all for today, be well. Tj.
Bosco is sorry too... just look at that face!
We have had some visitors the last week, I shot this photo on our back porch. Gives me chills just looking at it... possums! They are really creepy, at least I think they are. Like big giant rats! Anyway, this was the first to visit us. I saw another 2 nights later and then last night there were 2 in our yard. They were hissing and growling at each other. Of all the critters we have in our neighborhood these I could do without. This one is all ratty and torn up too... ick!
Until next time, be well. Tj.
Second Saturday is tomorrow... go out and help support local arts! The Sacramento Bee is almost in the SouthSide Park neighborhood and hey are having a great art show this month! Come out and learn how you can help save the honey bees and see some great art! Until next time... Tj.
Many of our neighbors knew our Chester so I wanted to share. We had to make a really tough decision today. He has been going down hill. The vet told us about a month ago that he had a urinary tract infection, the cause of it could be from many things including liver failure. We put him on antibiotics and he seemed better for a while, but the last few days he had been turning up his nose at food even the good stuff, and he has been losing weight, and his legs and snout were swollen. At times he almost couldn't make it up our steps to come in. Our main living is on the second floor, a lot of steps for an old sick boy. Went back to the vet today and he confirmed Chester has liver failure. What a tough terrible decision it is to make. We don't want him to suffer, and he has been. We will miss you terribly Bubba and love you always. RIP Chester Field Lev 1998-2010, our wonderful dog with a great big loving heart.
