Guest Blogger: The Boy

How To Get Attention When Another Dog Has Been Getting More Than Her Share Lately

By The Boy

Step 1: Wait until just after 1:00 in the morning.

Step 2: Have a seizure. Grand mal, if you can manage it. I'm new at this, but my effort did not go unnoticed.

Step 3: Let a thumb-haver scritch you behind the ears for, like, an hour.

That worked pretty well!

I hope life in general settles down this week (not to mention, dog payments).

Thanks for the good wishes, all. The rest of the weekend was uneventful, dog-wise. I'm wondering, though, if there's something in our environment that would cause such a reaction after being here about 2 years (Cub was about 2 when she started having seizures, and Angus came to live with us 2.5 years ago). Any ideas of what to check?

Are you serious? Oh, Lord. I have no idea. I'll continue praying.

That almost sounds like it's environmental.

Go read the testimonials on

Prayers for Cub, the Boy and your beans!

That must have been scary!! Prayers for you and the thumb havers.

that sounds horrific, i hope all is well by now.

i had a funny conversation with the person you interviewed when he told me about you and you blogging.

i hope you had a good interview. that's the cheeky chaplain and he's awesome. as much as i'd like to keep him here, i'm sure the guys over in Iraq need his spirit a bit more.

what a small and funny world it is! feel free to email me anytime!

Grendel and I hope that you are much better!

Please, take it from own with 'Posables, you don't have to go to such extremes to get attention!
