Morning kisses

I woke up around 6 am and came into the living room while the puppy remained in her doggy bed in the bedroom. She finally came ambling in around 730, jumped on the couch and started licking my face before curling up with her head on my lap. Then when i got up to start fixing breakfast, she rolled on her back on the floor looking for belly rubs. And then when I returned to the house to write this, she started licking my face again. She loves attention. Now she is back curled up with her head in my lap. She lives the good life.

I'm finally back

Sorry it has been so long since I posted but sometimes life gets in the way of me blogging.
If you read my good girl's blog poured out (on my blogroll), I had surgery on a artery in my neck that was 70 percent blocked in early January. Since she isn't working, she came to visit at Christmas and then stayed to help me recover. The operation was a success and I had an ultrasound today to make sure everything is going well. The techs aren't supposed to give you info but she said docs did a good job to I assume things are fine.
Unfortunately, in early February, I got the flu followed by a cold and then she caught it so we spent a lot of time under the weather. But it still such a treat to spend two months together. The problem is she had to return home to catch up on things and the longer she stayed here, the harder that was to do. She finally left two weeks ago and will return tomorrow. She left her puppy here with me.
That was a new experience because while my kids had a cat growing up, I had no experience dealing with a puppy. She is very sweet and needy but then maybe most dogs are. Right now, I'm writing this on the couch and she is curled up next to me. As long as I stay on the couch watching TV or on my computer, she stays. But the minute I get up, she usually does too. If I'm in the kitchen, she looks at me with sad eyes hoping I will give her some food. I don't do it too often because I want her to eat dog food but I will do it on occasion. She also likes to play tug of war and chase a ball I toss it.
We happen to live a couple of miles from a doggy park and she loves it playing with the other dogs and swimming in the pool they have. She won't jump into the deep end, though. She walks in the shallow end and then swims.
We had a mishap the other day driving home when she jumped out of the car. I freaked out. I think she may have seen the squirrel. Fortunately, she was OK except for wound on forehead. The vet said it was no big deal and gave me some ointment but I still had to call my good girl to tell her. That wasn't a fun call since she had said not to open the windows when the dog was in the car, But she understood, I think. LOL.
Meanwhile, I am playing tennis several times a week.
Also hope all the bloggers and doing well and enjoying the lifestyle and I will try to blog more often.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus

You probably are familiar with the Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus reply to a girl who wrote a newspaper editor asking if there is a Santa Claus because her friends say there wasn't.
It's worth a read again so here is the link:
http://www.newseum.org/exhibits/online/yes-virginia/

Sorry when I clicked it on, it didn't register but just type the link or google Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.
It's interesting is that there is such a small window to be around kids who believe. It isn't until they are four or so that they understand the concept and by five years later, if not before, they no longer believe.
And Christmas isn't the same if you don't have some little ones in the house who believe.
Two of my grandkids are 4 and 1 so still have a few years left.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Ho Ho Ho.

Happy Thanksgiving

To start with, want to thank all the bloggers who said hello on LOL. Sorry I didn't respond sooner, but I've been busy visiting my good girl. But always happy to hear from old friends and some new ones.  We do have a good community here.
It is a quiet Tuesday morning. My good girl is still sleeping and the only creatures stirring are Simone, her dog, and I.
She woke up a while back to go outside and then she came in and laid down on her doggy bed in the living room.
She got bored with that and came to me with a big ball of rope in her mouth to play tug of war, which is one of her favorite games. She loves attention. She just dropped it to eat a snack of dog food and then I threw it and she ran for it and returned to her doggy bed in the living room. She will probably be back soon. 
And want to wish all the bloggers in the U.S. a happy Thanksgiving. Not a great time in our country but this too shall pass.
We got a butterball turkey but we won't have all the usual trimmings because that is just too many calories. My good girl found a recipe for cauliflower to go with the turkey.
I know Simone will join us  and sit patiently hoping we will feed her, which we don't because don't want to encourage her to eat from the table. But I will probably "accidentally'' drop a small piece of turkey or two on the floor and she will scarf it down.
Not a great time of month for her so our play time has been limited to a lot of cuddling and snuggling and a good spanking. 
So hope you and yours have a great holiday and will any of you brave the crowds for the bargains on black Friday?
We will stay in for a good spanking and maybe more.

Love Our Lurkers Day

Hello and welcome to all our lurkers out there.
If you've been visiting our community for less than a year, this is your first Love Our Lurkers Day.
The idea is to convince our lurkers to sign up and start commenting. Maybe that will even lead to you starting your own blog.
I started out as a lurker until I was convinced on Love Our Lurkers Day to sign up and start commenting.
It literally changed my life. I made friends here, was convinced to start my own blog and eventually found my good girl when she started blogging.
I haven't done a good job of posting the last few months. Sorry. No excuses. But I do hope that some of our lurkers decide to say hello and introduce themselves.
And you are always welcome here. We tend to be a very welcoming communiity.
Love to all of you,
FD

More doggy tales

Sorry I haven't posted in much too long.Will be visiting my girl tomorrow for a 17-day stay over the Thanksgiving holiday. We should enjoy some good spankings and play time. Last time I visited she even asked for a pussy spanking in the middle of a play scene. I was happy to oblige.
And we will be having fun with her dog, Simone, who is now her alarm clock. She sleeps on a doggy bed at the foot of the bed and when she wakes up, she runs to her side of the bed for her to get up. When I first left after my last visit, she'd run to my side of the bed if my girl tried to ignore her until she figured out I wasn't there.
She loves attention and loves to play. She will bring her tug of war rope and other toys over to my girl when she wants to play and tends to whine when she doesn't think she is getting enough of attention.
And she loves to look outside, checking out the front door and then going back to the back door to check on what is going on. And she loves to lay on her back for belly rubs.
Unfortunately, she came down with some sort of rash on her belly and is getting antibotics and the vet gave her a cone to put around her head to stop her from licking it. She looked so sad wearing that so my girl got a cushion dougnut type thing and she actually seems to like it.
Meanwhile, she hasn't been at the doggy park for a few weeks to play with the other dogs that visit.
My girl took her to the beach but she didn't seem to take to that.
She has had very few aaccidents inside the house and now mostly goes outside. She also doesn't ike spending time in the kennel, especially once she was allowed to sleep at the foot of my girl's bed instead of spending the night in the kennel.
Hope all of our friends in the US will have a Happy Thanksgiving next week. We haven't decided if we will cook a turkey or go out.
I am playing a lot of tennis and will try to write more, especially for the lurkers since Love Our Lurkers day is this weekend.

Doggy tales

Hope our U.S. bloggers are enjoying a good holiday weekend and that the folks in Houston are getting the help they need.
I will be visiting my good girl today and will be seeing her dog for the second time. She couldn't stand having her in the kennel all night and then all day when she was at work so she started letting her sleep in a doggy bed at the foot of her bed. It has gone well. She has had no accidents and if she wants to go out in the middle of the night she will come to the side of the bed and push her with her nose. But she often sleeps through the night and then gets up when the alarm rings. My girl can no longer hit snooze because she is looking for attention.
One she didn't have to spend the night in the kennel, she didn't want to be there in the day. She has had a few problems keeping her in the kennel while she was at work during the day. The dog figured out how to open it from the inside. And then she made a mess. When my girl tied the door shut she actually bent a steel latch. My girl was worried she might squeeze her head out and get it caught so they she had to get a bigger kennel and that is working. When my girl arrives home and lets her out of the kennel, she heads right to the door.
And when she wants to go outside after that, she goes to the door and pushes the leash with her nose.
Well, time to get packing.
Hope all is well where you are.
