SCURVY

Last night I found Maggie curled up with what I thought was her bedtime story book but it turned out to be Mom's medical encyclopedia. I asked her what she was doing with that and she said she was a missing hearing from her friend, "puddles" and was starting to worry that she was just a figment of her imagination and we really didn't spend fun times with her nor pip.  So she decided since puddles is a nurse to come up with some dreaded disease and post it so nurse puddles would come over and take care of her.  She decided on scurvy cos she never eats green beans, or lots of fruit like I do.  I think that is fitting.  She hopes that nurse puddles reads about her illness.

On another note Mom and I was a talkin last night about friends and how they make the world go round.  Since we started to blog it has opened up a big world of people who love all kinds of animals just like us, and people who understand our hearts cos their hearts are similar.  When Sammer and Trudie went to live at the rainbow bridge  friends  left us heartfelt posts, and it helped us make it through our grief.  In our everyday world about 3 people actually said anything to us, which was okay cos we have all of you guys. A friend isn't always a mirror imagine of you and they may handle things different from you, but they are still our friend.  Helping a friend understand why they feel the way they do, is sometimes a challenge but its just part of our job.  Sometimes you want to kick your friends to the curb, but if you do that you usually both end up throwing something very valuable to you away.  Words sometimes get said out of context and words get said that hurt people. Friendship can be a lousy job sometimes, but someone has to do it AND you never know when you might a friend.  Sometimes its easier not to ever have friends cos you don't have to deal with their problems, or issues, or griping or whining, ......but what a sad sad world we would live in if we always kept our heart closed cos it easier that way.

  1. Furiends are furiends, whether you ever meet them in pawson or not! I love all my Blogville furiends. (And I hope Magpie recovers from her "scurvy". Tell her she can't eat dessert while she's sick.)

    Oh, and I don't know if I would say that Momma was exactly laughing when she saw how I made the bed. But she was definitely cheering me on. Lots of "Casey! I don't believe you!"

  9. Oh wells you can be rest assured I will come and helps you gets overs scurvy...once I figures out what da hell it is. I must has missed dat day of nursin' school...and da day befores dat one too. Believes me, I is real. Just ask my mum, who spent $200 on me at da vet today...it wasn't fur scurvy though.

    Furineds heres in Blogville is different than in da real world. Here we understands everybuddy and we nevers look at anybuddy differently despite breed, sex, or type of animal. Da real world sure can be skeery though. If I evers gotted sick I is sure nobuddy would care as much as they do here. Mum wants to move to to Blogville permantly.

  10. Friends are the most important asset we have. They are worth more than gold. Friends are people or pugs who can have a fight but make up and be even stronger friends down the road.

    We've been blessed to meet some of our internet friends in person which is truly awesome. And we know that if we ever needed anything, we could call on our friends for help. And we hope our friends know that they can count on us, too!

    Be a good friend, and you'll have good friends. You're great friends!
