My little angel has the blues. She’s got the low-down, dirty blues. One day she was at the groomers getting styled with a field cut for the summer, and next she is being rushed to the vet for emergency foxtail removal surgery. Life is rough when you’re a dog living at Circle N Ranch.
Our old dog Charly was a music lover. I sang to him all the time. Remember the Charlie perfume theme song? Yep – custom made for my dog. I adapted lyrics: Psycho Puppy from the Talking Heads, Your Food’s in Jeopardy from … whomever that was in the ’80’s. Charly loved it! He would dance around with a smile on his dear little face. He was artistic. He was sensitive. When my great-aunt passed away, Charly comforted my tears.
This one … not musical. The cat is more musical than little Sadie. The cat is also far more sensitive than Sadie – don’t let those sad eyes fool you! She is an athlete, not an aesthete. She may have a pretty face, but she is not a dainty little wussy girl. This is why the vet bills for 5-year-old Sadie have already outstripped those for Charly during all of his 14 years. We ought to have purchased stock in the company that manufactures these cones.
