Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Misha made this costume herself.  😀  It reminds me of Charlie Brown. I won’t be dressing her up today.  Well, you’ve read about how well she does with dog clothes. She doesn’t do well on Halloween at all.  Last year, I had her in the spare room with me.  She barked almost constantly for 2 hours. This year, I’ve decided I’m going to give Misha a small dose of her sedative an hour before the Trick or Treaters appear.  It…

Dreaded Jacket Season

Dreaded Jacket Season

The last couple of days our normally springlike autumn has turned chilly and windy.  We had wind gust up around 40-50 mph on Monday.  It means this is the time of year that Misha hates the most:  Jacket Season. Our winters don’t get very cold and it never snows.  But, Misha is a small dog without a whole lot of fur.  She shivers when the temperature is below 65F.  She sleeps wrapped inside a heat reflecting blanket in the middle…

Having Summit stay over means sharing a bed with her.  She never sleeps on the bed at home, but she simply refuses to relax if I make her lay on the floor even with her own bed.  She tends to be restless because of her seizure medication, so if she’s calm, I’ll put up with it. In the last year, Misha graduated from her cage to the “outside world”.  Normally she sleeps in her tent bed, but sometimes she sleeps…

Summit has come over for another sleepover.  She’s feeling much better since she kicked a persistent e.coli infection.  For the first time in many visits, she ate her dinner–all of it–without a fuss the first day. I took the above photo about a year ago when the two were together.  As you can see, Summit outweighs Misha by a good 55 lbs!  They do get along great even if they do spent most of the time staying out of each…

  This could be the start of a “Where’s Misha” series.  She was about a year and half in this shot, still taking naps in the playpen (for my sanity).  Now you understand why sometimes I feel like I am being spied on.

We have a gardener who Misha hates. He comes over every other week and every other week Misha goes into a barking frenzy each time he passes the sliding glass door.  He’s on her property and she’s not going to stand for it. This went on for a year.  Then, the gardener decided he wanted to befriend her.  He began bringing her treats each visit.  It has been a slow process.  The barking continues but she now expects a treat…
