Good Bye Little One

This is hard to write for me. I’m still trying to process what happened. Our very beloved Shitz Tzu, Coco, passed away on Christmas Eve. Her death left my husband and myself reeling a bit.

On both December 22 and 23, she had a case of the runs. We couldn’t figure out what was causing it. On the 22nd she ate her supper and seemed in good spirits. Unfortunately on the 23rd, it was another repeat of the very liquid, stinky poo but this night she threw up a little. Not knowing what else to do, we cuddled her all she would let us.

The morning of the 24th, Coco seemed to be back to her same old self. She never went poo that day, but I wasn’t too worried since she hadn’t eaten supper the night before. She climbed up on the chair with my husband and we thought everything was okay.

At some point that evening, I remember catching sight of her behind his chair. I didn’t think anything of it since she would frequently sleep back there. Then came bedtime.

As we went back to the bedroom, I didn’t hear her nails clicking on the floor as she came back. So I started looking for her. She wasn’t under the bed, in her bed in the living room or on the shelf. I glanced behind my husband’s chair at the blanket and she wasn’t there either. I double-checked to make sure she hadn’t followed me outside to turn off lights. Nothing.

Coming back into the living room, I started checking all the smaller spaces she could have gotten into. Then I caught sight of her tail coming out from under his chair. Now our chairs are power lift chairs so there is some room there. I hit the button to lift the chair higher, thinking she’d gotten stuck.

My worst fears were realized as I grabbed her out from under the recliner. She was absolutely limp. I yelled for my husband who came out to check her out. She was gone. Take great care, we laid her to rest in something that we could use to transport her to Pet Passages, which is where we took Odie when he died.

My husband says no more pets. At the moment I have to agree with him. I don’t know why Coco died, but she will live on in my heart.

Memories of Christmas

How was your Christmas this year? Did you gather around the virtual tree? Did you still go all out on your decorations? I didn’t exactly go all out. Thanks to having redone my bedroom furniture, I was able to spread my normal decorations out more and place a lot of my snowmen in the bedroom. My husband had gotten me a crystal swan and votive holders so I used them as my centerpiece.

I gathered a few of my photos from this year and made a short video to share.

New on the Blog

As you may or may not have noticed, I’ve started redoing some of the old posts, updating the information and the photos. I also plan to start adding in new series. I noticed that Delta James is starting a new series called “Tangled Vines” that will follow the “Wayward Mates.” Additionally, I want to add more of the series with a “mail order brides” theme. Those tend to also include a great deal of spanking in them. So if that’s not your thing, feel free to skip them!

Weekly Cup of Coco!

Our old dog, Odie, was never one to play with any kind of toys or to chase a ball. When we got Coco, we purchased a couple of toys to see if she would play with them. As you can see in this (very) short video, she loves her toys!

It’s definitely been interesting this week! Besides wanting to start the Wayward Mates and the Bridgewater Ménage, I also came across a couple of other Paranormal Dating Agency books to include. One book actually reaches back to a story at the beginning of the series. Those will be coming soon.

I was also reminded of a few other books that I have read, but never reviewed. Those will give me several different series to do.

Then, of course, there are the cookbooks that I have started reviewing on NetGalley. Now that it’s only my husband and myself, I find that I really enjoy cooking again. So watch for those to be posted.

Weekly Cup of Coco!

I have been trying to teach Coco to Sit on command. So far, she will sit on command if you have a treat in your hand. Then the other day she popped up into this pose that was just too cute to ignore.

We walked right by this fine fellow returning from our walk today.
