When Pets Are Sick


I AM one of THOSE people that gush about my pet and bore you with the 200+ pics I have on my phone.  When did this happen to me?  I used to scoff at THOSE people!

Rocket has been my best friend, baby and companion for 6+ years.  I have NO idea how I managed without the love of this creature in my life before he came along.  HE is the reason I got out of bed during my darkest days.  He is always there, excited to see me and filled with love.

He got Very Sick a couple of days ago.  Sicker than I’ve ever seen him.  He was losing fluids at both ends and the danger of dehydration was a real threat.  I called 5 different vets offices to see if I could get someone to look at him, before I found someone with an opening.  I had to sit in the waiting room for a couple of hours until they could work me in.

Rocket and I are both back home.  Him, dozing on the couch next to me.  I’ve got 2 different medications and some special food for him.  The picky eater that he is actually ate some of the food and he’s drinking water.  Both are improvements.  So I’m encouraged.

I think he’s going to be ok.  But a time like this really does make you think about what a HUGE part of your life these Furbabies are.  He IS family.

Rocket’s Name(s)


My dear friend Jessica Bakkers did a very sweet post sometime back about her beloved dogs and all of the sweet nicknames she had for them.  This got me thinking about all of the different nicknames I have for my furkid, Rocket.  

First of all, his “official” name is Rocket Ralph Wilson.  He came by Rocket because when he gets excited, he gets the “zoomies” and he runs like hell, taking off like a rocket!  You would never know that this tiny dog could move so fast.  His middle name, Ralph, is the Last Name of his first Mommie before he became my furkid.  Of course, Wilson is because my last name is Wilson.

 

The nicknames.  Let’s start with the ones that have to do with “Rocket”.  There’s Rocket Man, Sprocket Rocket and Pocket Rocket.  Then there are the ones that are not as obvious.  Buddy, Baby, Baby Boo, Boo Boo and just Boo.  Then I really get carried away and will call him Babaloo or Babaloo Baby Boo, or Boogaloo and Boogaloo Baby Boo.  Crazy, right?  🙂

 

I will often call him by his “personality” names, like Sweet Boy and Sweet Baby.

Then there are the ones that refer to his personal appearance.  Big Boy, Little Boy, Little Man and lately, because of the white in his hair,  Little ‘Ole Man.

 

This is gonna sound weird.  When he lays on his stomach and puts his back feet behind him, it seems to create an extra bit of fat around his butt.  So at times, I call him Mr. Squishy Butt.

This little guy, at only 5 lbs, has made a HUGE difference in my life and has a HUGE place in my heart.  No matter what I call him, he is such a love in my life and it would be an empty place without him.

Rocket at the Keyboard, Again


*Rocket has convinced me to let him do another blog post.  His last one was well received and I think the little guy got a bit of a big head over it. (Don’t tell him that I said that!)  This time, I told Rocket that I would type the post for him.  Although for a little dog, he does a fine job, he just doesn’t have the dexterity in his paws, so it takes him quite a Long time.  Below is Rocket’s post.  Rocket and I hope you enjoy it.  

Hello all!  I’m so glad my mommy let me do another post on her blog thingy.  For those of you out there that missed that first post and would like to read it, you can find it HERE.    Also, for those of you that are still catching up, the picture above is of me!  If you happen to see me on the sidewalk with my mom, be sure to say hi!

There have been times when my celebrity-ness is a little too much, even for me!  So Mom has me go incognito sometimes.
