My buddy got sick

Chi has been with us for 2 years. We picked her up from the Pet Rescue people and she’s become one of the family. Chi got sick 3 weeks ago. Test results pointed to Pancreatitis which she was being treated for but her condition got worse. She’s not eating, vomiting, has diarrhoea and been on and off a drip for the past week. She is staying at the vet surgery and waiting for more test results due back in the morning before the vet takes the next step of opening her up to see what is going on.

I’m trying to stick my to daily routine of walking but it’s not the same without her. You can read about Chi’s story here


In an effort to lighten my mood, I took to reading the personal ads in the local newspaper. As one might read the cartoon section of the news paper, I get a laugh out of the personal ads. Objective achieved… a laugh I did have..

“I want to meet lady my age or older” (Throw us a bone mate… 20, 30, 50 80???)

“Hi, I’m up for a party, any-time, anywhere, love to meet outgoing party people” (I guess he’s thinking more along the lines of “Roman Toga Party” not Kids Birthday Party)

“Dear Daddy – seeking his special lady ( ooooh, who’s your daddy)

“Looking for regular partner for adult fun. Can host every Saturday, can’t travel. (Must be his wife’s bingo day out and I guess she takes the car)


“Happy Guy, not getting any. Seeking Casual Relationship Only with friendly lady” (Poor bastard)

    I’m sorry to hear about your little dog but glad that she is on the mend.
    Love those personal ads. You’ve just got to laugh right. 😀


    • Just remember to assure your partner you are not reading the personal column looking for his replacement. Mine looks at me in a strange way when I ask him; Can I have the personal ad section” whilst he’s reading the newspaper over breakfast 🙂 I then sit there chuckling and snorting away to myself.

        Oh, I’d tell him I’m looking for a replacement. 🙂 Especially since he suggested that he might move in to house sit a friend’s home after the friend’s husband suggested seeing if Jennifer Hawkins might do it. lol


  2. Hope your pooch gets better, soon. 🙂
