In a Good Place

We are just cruising right along in the New Year! 

~Our road on a recent snowy day~

And knock, knock, knock on wood (please!!!) at the moment the dogs are all in a pretty good place right now. 

If we have to put one of the dogs at the top of the list of concerns, it would be George. He's relying on us to help him get to his feet. Once he's up, he gets around with not too many problems, but an appointment with the vet is on list of things to schedule. I'm not quite sure what the "disconnect" is with his needing so much help. But I'm thinking acupuncture or cold laser therapy (or both) may be in his future and that will hopefully help him.

~George ❤~

Our outdoor kitty "White Boy" wasn't exactly in a good place last week, when he found himself stuck on the roof after our last snowfall. 

I heard White Boy crying and I thought he was trapped in our woods somewhere and Carl was looking for him there, and couldn't find him - But when he turned around to come back towards the house, Carl spotted him on our roof. Cats! 

As to how White Boy got up on the roof, there is an arborvitae pine tree in front of our garage, that almost reaches the gutter, and even though it has small bendy-branches, he must've found some way to climb it and get on the roof.  Why he climbed the tree and got on the roof is anyone's guess, but there was no way he was going to be able to get down on his own. When Carl handed down him to me, he started purring. I'm sure he was happy for that adventure to end.
It goes without saying Todd of course prefers to keep his feet on the ground -- A little tidbit about Todd, is that even though he only weighs about 25 pounds, (about 11 kg) he doesn't like to be picked up. He's a Scottie after all, and not a cat -- We're both glad about that. 🙂

Or snow from last week has all melted, and according to the weathermen, 
we're on track for a winter-storm tomorrow 
that will bring snow, ice and end with rain.  
We'll see if they get it right. 

The weathermen also noted that as of today, 
it's 64 days until Spring!

  1. White Boy sure got himself into a sticky situation. Good thing you figured out where he was. All paws are crossed that the vet can help George feel better. We don't like getting picked up either but we weigh 50 lbs. so that doesn't happen very often.

  2. 64 days, that will fly past so quickly. White Cat, is this the first of your adventures? And George, here's hoping the vet can work wonders for you.

  3. We hope the vet has some good ideas for George. And White Boy - we hope he learned his lesson. Kudos to Carl for getting him down. We got snow today and we just love it!!!

  4. I always say to my patients, "getting up is the hard part." While this may be true for George, it's the opposite for White Boy the kitty.

  5. Life is never dull when you have dogs and cats!
    Since summer we have "acquired" three feral cats (or they have acquired us) and in spite of being very wary, I've noticed recently that the smallest female is extremely inquisitive. I think most animals are interested in their surroundings, which is why White Boy decided to investigate your roof!
    Poor George - I do hope the treatment works - he's such a lovely boy.

  6. Hello,
    I am glad all is going well, I hope George's treatment works out for him. I am like Todd, my feet firmly on the ground. The cat had a little adventure on the roof. This cold weather is not fun, more snow coming today. I am ready for spring. Take care, enjoy your day! Have a happy new week!

  7. Scotties do things THEIR way.

  8. White cat's adventure made us chuckle. So glad you are all in a good place. We are counting the days until Spring - it has been very cold (close to -40) and tomorrow we are suppose to get a foot of snow! Lee and Phod

  9. There's a lot to be said for life humming right along, isn't there... something that seldoms happens in your corner of the planet. I'm knocking on wood for you, kiddo, that life continues along that path all year long! White Boy, OMG!! *haha* The look on his face tho!! :-D "Uhhh, could ya give a guy a hand here? I seem to have myself in a pickle!" *hahahaha* ~Andrea xoxo

  10. It is always good to be in a good place! Yay! We are kind of there too. Feels good to just cruise!

  11. Maybe Max it shaggy ,but I bet he is warm.

  12. A white kitty in the snow could be hard to find, I guess. It feels just so normal for Todd to not want to be picked up. He's brought a lot of sunshine to your life, hasn't he?

  13. I'm so relieved! this post turned out to be ok.
    Carl risked life and limb but White Boy is safe!
    and I have good feelings about sweet George!
    YOU keep safe and sound dear one! XOXO

  14. Fenris would love it IF Mom would pick him up and carry him but at 75# that isn't going to happen.

  15. Acupuncture helped Bentley greatly and I've found that CBD oil is a big help for both arthritis and seizures.

  16. George, we hope everything goes well with you and you start to feel better soon after your vet visit. White Boy how did get yourself up there. We glad you are safe now. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day and yes bring on spring.
