Blues Doggie

Pathetic pupMy 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.

  1. Sadie sounds like a teenager and just look at those eyes! Sheesh she could train the best of us with that look! Do you think she can train me for when next I walk into a visa office??? lol who ever said animals are not human need to think again! (for the record I am not stating that I am an animal… seriously)

  2. Music for dogs part 1: Seamus from Meddle by Pink Floyd.

  3. SF – that face, that fabulous face … She has her dogmom wrapped around her little paw.

    @mmo – is this in the tradition of Eno’s Music for Airports?

  4. Not really, it’s Pink Floyd with backing vocals from an Irish Wolfhound called “Seamus” Seamus
