So it's Boudica's 4th birthday today, which means it's also the fourth anniversary of the day we lost Dolly. Boo was born 12 hours (almost to the minute) of Dolly dying and that's always been an odd coincidence. Even odder, Boo is good at sleeping through the night, Dolly never was, but last night (really this morning) Boo woke us both up, whining to go out, a look at the clock told me it was the actual anniversary point of Dolly passing. Just strange ina melancholy way.

So, Happy Birthday Boo:


And we still miss you greatly Dolly:

I know. :(

I sometimes wonder how they'd have gotten along (assuming they aren't the same girl in different iterations of course).

I think the movie "Looper" can address that.

I think 1 - 2 on Doctor Who is a better analogy in this situation, thoguh Dolly was much more a 4. :)

It's a puppy thing that most grow out of, look you can see it here from when Boo was a puppy:


She's opening her mouth to latch onto Jem's muzzle which he doesn't want in the slightest, and they're playing in that pic. It's sort of like "got yer nose!" but most of them learn to stop doing it as they get old enough to be able to do damage or to play with older dogs.

And things like that is why I will only own one dog at a time.   Don't want The Doberman Gang.

Well they're pack animals though, and one day, when Jem's dark master calls him to the home office, Boo will probably need a new companion fairly quickly, she's very needy and adores Jemmy, this is extreme but not unusual for dogs.

So that dog I adopted (ended up naming him Rory
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
by the way), just ate a whole roll of bubble tape. I checked and it doesn't have Xylitol in it, but I have no idea. He might be sick. Of course he would do this at the start of the weekend, when the vet is closed.

It's amazing the stuff dogs will eat. I had a dog once who ate a glass Christmas ornament. He was fine, though. By some miracle he managed to pass the shards without incident.

I am lucky with my doberman.....she only eats food that is given to her.  She does not even go sniffing around the trashcan.  I could leave a roast sitting on the kitchen counter and she would ignore it.   I guess I must be determined to be the "food giving human".

Of course, while taking her for walks she will eat ANY food she finds on the walk.

Had a pit bull puppy try to eat a tape cassette I had lost under the front passenger seats of my car.  I ended up pulling a stretch of tape out of her mouth.  Icky,   but no harm done.  She also had a taste for cat crap and pretty much any excrement she found in the woods.  Never outgrew that.
And I'm worse than Hitler.

A lot of dogs really do love cat shit. It's like a delicacy or something. Chance was really good about not eating food that was not his, but he liked to sneak a turd or two out of the box when we weren't looking.
