Yikes, we didn't mean to make you worry!

Wroooo, everypuppy and kitty! Dannan again, TWO days in a ROW!

First things first. When The Girl typed for me yesterday, I think we were both influenced by a very low mood. (Not mine, but hers!) I suggested to her that maybe we won't post when we're (read: she's) in that kind of head space. We'll wait until it's passed a little bit, so we're (read: she's) not so gloomy!

Many of our good furends are worried about The Girl, and we didn't want yesterday's post to make people even more worried! Yesterday, The Girl got some news about one of our furry dear (offline) furends, and everything seemed very bleak. Today, because she's got a little perspective, The Girl feels better.

I'll tell you a little secret about My Girlie. She always wants to fix things for the people she loves! But there's lots of times that she can't, and all she can do is support them until they figure out what they want to do. She gets furry agitated at not being able to fix it, though!

Here's another thing. The Girl has some things in the works that she's doing to make her own life better (she says it will make my life better too, so I'm thinking it involves more trips to the dog park, or more bully sticks, or something), but now it's got to go on hold for a while. So she's just got to bear with the things she wants to change, just until it's right to make them happen.

There, I hope efurrybody feels a little less worried now! The Girl is supporting our furend, and working on being patient (she's not furry good at that, either!). Things will all work out eventually, my Nanny says. And Nannys know efurrything.

Today, I want to share some pictures from Christmases past. (The Girl still hasn't uploaded the ones from yesterday.)

These are from a couple of years ago. This is me, with antlers. Note the sheer panic. (The Girl felt very bad. Now she wears the antlers and I don't have to.)

This is a happier picture, although my Laser Eyes are speaking volumes.

And here are a couple more from this year's photoshoot at Nanny's house. I am snoofling in the leaves. Sometimes, The Girl scatters kibble or treats in the leaves and I get to find them. None in the leaves that day, though!

I'm taking furry good care of The Girl, so please try not to worry, my furends!

My mom is the same way. She's rescuer and wants to save the whole world. It's a very tiring goal. She's learning as I'm sure your mom is how to step back and take a deep breath. Meanwhile, you and I can help them by being supportive as only we doggies can--with unconditional ever present love.

love & wags,

We know you will take good care of your girl Dannan. But we can't help worry sometimes too!! Apparently your girl and our mom are similar...always wanting to fix things they really have no control of at all!!! Humans make things complicated..that's why they need us so much!

My mom used to be that way until she was stabbed in the back by 2 people very close to her. That was a year ago and mom decided to stop worrying about other people so much and let them do things on their own. Those 2 peopleare still mean and I want to bite them really hard for hurting Mom so bad, but now that they aren't around anymore Mom is TONS happier! She didn't realize how mad those people wer to her until they weren't around anymore. Now she's MUCH more careful about who she gets involved with.
I'm sure that's not the kind of situation your mom is in. I hope she gets through things fast and okay.

Great pictures and I love the antlers!

Take care of the Girl for us.

Peoples are very confusing. They seem to get many thoughts that make them act and smell funny.

Even though I love all my bloggy friends, I know that sometimes I just need to focus on momma and help her with that stuff she calls life and living inside her head. That's all pretty complicated for a dude like me.

Just be yourself little brown guy!

Hi Dannan,

Oh boy we sure missed you. Glad to hear that your girl feels better now. And that's some cool antlers on your head eh!

Come on over for a short laugh at our posts. Woowoo!

It's a good thing The Girl has you Dannan. Imagine what she'd be like without you? Take care of her and give her nose kisses from me please!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Poor Dannan, you do look a little worried about those antlers! Don't fret, they're removable.

Ruby said...

Hi Dannan
I love the antler picture.
Sometimes we have no control over what happens to us or others. We can't fix everthing, even though we are desperate to do so. Your Nanny is right, things will work out eventually. (Even if it's not the outcome you were hoping for). It always does.
Take care of the Girl Dannan.
Love Ruby

Dannan my Mummy putted antlers on me and Old Lady Dawg one time and that wuz the last time ever! Never again not fer a million treats. Well mebbe fer a million and one.

PS My Daddy has Save the World Syndrome and Mummy sez it is bad fer his blud preshure whatever that is.

My Momma always tries to save the werld too. It's hard, I don't know why she has to be so careful about the whole werl and then when I try to guard the dog run she tells me not to worry about it. I don't understand! I guess she thinks she's the only one who can take care of others.

Well, I hope you are able to just be the support your Girl needs right now. I know who are. Just give her the laser eyes when she needs 'em.

Hugs, Biggie
