Flea-isms – Dogs Need to Apply
I’ve been on a Flea-ism kick lately, but dogs need to apply. Actually, I only have two Flea-isms. I’ll show you in a second. But I’d like to build a small library of Flea-isms. I need ones for dogs, right? See, so dogs need to apply. Take a look at my very first one. I’m pretty proud of it.
These are Hunny and our two boys/men. They spent an afternoon moving our shed from one corner of the yard to another. I laughed pretty hard when they showed me how they did it. Believe it or not, they rammed it across the yard by repeatedly backing the pickup truck into it. Geniuses, my boys. It worked. I kept the dogs inside all afternoon. The dogs got Jones Natural Chews for being good and not asking to go out into the madness. The boys all got coffee. But how about that Flea-ism, huh?
My second, and only other, one woke me at three am. Today. Lemme tell ya – all last year, during chemo, I slept like a baby. Granted, I was sleeping in a chair all year, but the poison knocked me out every night. Now that I’m healing? I get four to five hours and I’m up. Then I take a nap. Crazy. And this Flea-ism wouldn’t let me go back to sleep. So please don’t tell me it’s dumb, or my cranky, sleep deprived self will whomp you.
It was a lot more clever at three am.
Help! Original Dog Sayings!
Original dog sayings are a tough thing to come up with. I’m sure I’ll be up at three tomorrow morning with one, but who knows? Something like, “If your dog doesn’t like a treat, you probably shouldn’t either.” See, because you should only be giving your dog Jones Natural Chews for treats. I think that was pithy. Maybe. Maybe not. Or this, “The more dogs I meet, the more I like Jones Natural Chews.” Too much? Yeah, probably too much. All I know is this – as I come up with Flea-isms, I’ll share. And dogs need to be included.
Wait! Don’t leave! They’re not that bad, are they? Fine, let’s have a cancer recovery update, then.
Last week I had a colonoscopy. It was the first since the one in which they discovered my tumor just over a year ago. It was clean. In fact, my surgeon says I won’t need another one for three years! That was pretty exciting news. I see my oncologist next week for labs and a general check up.
My energy levels are rising. I’ve been doing light chores around the house. I even did a little sewing last week, but it was tough. It was tough because my fingers haven’t fully recovered. The neuropathy leaves them a bit numb at the fingertips. I’m hoping that disappears. What I’m really hoping disappears, though, is the neuropathy in my feet. I think it’s improving, but I’m not sure. My feet feel like they’re covered in fine sand, and now I’m experiencing shooting pains at random. Also, standing on them for any length of time is killer. I do think that they’re improving daily, though. My naturopath has me taking CoQ 10 and milk thistle to flush my liver and regenerate nerve endings. We’ll see.
Last, but not least (since, let’s face it, the Flea-isms really don’t seem to be going places), is our Jones Natural Chews giveaway! One lucky dog will win a Pumper, our baked pork heart. It’s only the one ingredient, with no coatings or weird stuff. Just a pork heart. And it’s an all American pig at that. So click this sentence to open a new window for the giveaway, then scroll down to enter. Your dog will thank you. Remind your dog to tweet about it daily to increase its chances of winning, will ya?
Now that’s it. Scoot so I can come up with more enlightening sayings.
