It’s a New Year…


And I didn’t celebrate last night, but I did get some sleep!  I fooled the crazy old Chief dog into thinking I was asleep on the family room couch by leaving a bed pillow and blanket there so that if he woke in the night he didn’t panic and start barking.  Luckily his eye sight isn’t the best, lol.

Yes, I know it’s a lot of silliness to go through for a 15 and a half year old dog, but getting to sleep in my own bed all night without 2 a.m. barking was so worth it.  Tonight I’ll try for two days in a row!

  2. I hear ya’. Having an elderly dog in the house is like having a new born at home. Hope he lets you sleep again tonight. 😃

      2. I’m dreading losing him, had him since he was two months old. We have a deal. He’s going to hang on at least awhile yet cause I can’t lose him right now! So I put up with all the crazy lol

    Dee, jumped on WordPress to start out the New Year (after admittedly being away for far too long) and was gutted to hear about your loss. My condolences to you and your family. Chief is lucky to have you, and vice versa! Good luck with the new plan for the new late-night “activities,” and wishing you and yours all the best for 2019.

    1. Thanks, Bruce. Paul’s death was so sudden that the kids and I are still reeling. We had so many plans and thought we had more time! I have my good Days and bad, trying to just move forward right now and do what needs to be done…


  8. Happy New Year, Dee. ❤️🥂
