Just When I Thought I Was Making Better Decisions...

So....I drank a bottle of wine and impulsively took home a rescue dog last night. NOT my best decision ever.
Introducing Miss Zelda Fitzgerald
She is a 3 year old Cavalier King Charles who was rescued from a pet hoarder...her name was Lady Jasmine. So naturally I am changing it to Zelda Fitzgerald. ;)
(reader note: Bitchy Little Rat Dog's real name is Coco.  As in Coco Chanel.  I know, I know...obnoxious) (But doesn't "Coco & Zelda" sound like a hilarious duo of bitchy pups??  Bonus: pairing the name Coco Chanel with Zelda Fitzgerald makes it sound more roaring twenties  and less obnoxious brand poser-y.)

However, as cute as the new addition is, Homegirl and Bitchy Little Rat Dog have a fiery hatred for each other so far.  This sibling rivalry has resulted in 2 puddles of pee...on my EFFING WHITE CARPET!!! A luxurious shade of white that I selected as a nod to our growing maturity.  BLRD was housebroken and I was, too. (meaning that I hadn't puked red bull vodka over the side of my bed in years)  The girls have spent most of their first twelve hours together growling, barking, or hiding in each other's cages. (a very passive aggressive attack strategy)
Our Hangover Sunday Ritual


I hadn't realized how settled Coco and I were in our routine.  Our life together was on a lovely, simple autopilot.  She knows my commands (whether she chooses to listen and obey is an entirely different story).  She knows I hate being licked...especially in the face.  She has become and expert at hiking, long walks, and even longer cuddle sessions on the couch.  She pees and poops on schedule, command.  She intuitively knows when its time to go to bed.  Basically, she has become a little furry extension of me.



Zelda Fitzgerald, on the other hand, has lived most of her life either in a cage or fighting for space among a ton of other dogs on a tiny screened in concrete porch...she is desperate for love and attention. (and desperate to lick me) She isn't used to being walked, so she isn't in very good shape. She is terrible to lounge on the couch with because she has no respect for the "My Little Pony" Blanket rule (or my personal space...she tried to lay directly on my head) ... and all this behavior absolutely enrages Coco.

But I have opened up my home to this little adorable train wreck...so now I must open my heart and my life up, as well.  Then hopefully my furry little soul sister, Coco/BLRD, will learn to love Zelda Fitzgerald, too.  If you have any advice on rescue animal...please help!

Also, I am accepting input on what Zelda's "street name" should be...

  2. I comment when I appreciate a post on a blog or I have something to contribute to the conversation. It is triggered by the passion communicated in the post I read.
    And after this post "Just When I Thought I Was Making Better Decisions...".
    I was actually moved enough to leave a thought ;-) I actually do
    have 2 questions for you if it's okay. Is it simply me
    or do some of the comments look like they are coming from
    brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are
    writing on additional social sites, I'd like
    to keep up with you. Could you make a list all of your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  4. You can drive by and let these accusations discredit the hard way and that the
    contractor. An investigation into the unlicensed contractors
    reputation attacks. One of the disruption that is a crucial state to another.
    The company warned the decision to kill them through Better Business Bureau.
    Solomon pleaded not guilty of failing to hold up work can never work for them.
