Another 4th of July but this one better.


Last night Jessie spent the night in her “cubby” between the fireworks and the thunder she was stressed out. Suddenly she knows the new word “cubby”. I have been concerned about her growing fear a bit like Marley in the book Marley and Me. Not yet as extreme but still upsetting. It is also a little less cold in there. I like to sleep in a cold room with cold sheets and pillows and so the AC is on at least thru the hot summer nights. In the winter I am sleeping with the window open about 3-4 inches. I snuggled up in my own cubby or cocoon like covering. It provides a more restful and peaceful sleep.

For the first time in years I went out and did something on the 4th. I was invited to go to a friend’s house and sit and chat while we waited to go to a West Indies picnic. It did not get rolling until after I left but it was very pleasant and I had some degree of socialization. Of course I left to go home early because my owner and master (Miss Jess) was waiting for my return. This does not sit well with some of my friends -“a dog is running your life. “But she is much more for me, she is a constant in my life and her unconditional love is wonderful.
