CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace
Last week I had my first cold in over 3 years! It lasted about 3 long days. Except for 3 quick phone calls, I didn’t “talk” to anyone. That helped keep me from coughing. In the past, if I allowed myself to cough, my cold would usually turn into bronchitis, and would keep me coughing for up to 3 months! As normal, I felt worse in the early morning. I started each day by drinking a hot cough & cold-relief drink; another at noon and a 3rd right before bed. Yuck! It was listed as “berry flavored” but tasted (ahem) berry bad.
All this leads to a quick study of my 3 dogs. (It seems I have a story-in-3 today). I’m sure this anomaly has been going on for quite a while, but until I spent 3 whole days, in a row, at home with my pups I hadn’t put it all together. Here’s the story:
I stayed for the duration, of my cold, on my couch, in my den or TV room. Except at night, when my 3 pups and I each have our own beds, or in their case, crates. On my couch, there are 3 throw pillow’s one for me, one for Jack (Corgi mix), and one for BoBo (Chihuahua mix). Pomeranian Rockefeller, the baby at age 15 months, still uses my lap as his pillow. For 3 days we sat on the couch. Chewing bones or toys kept the pups out of my Kleenex box. They are great company.
When one sits for long periods of time, especially on a comfortable couch with the TV on, one often gets droopy or even falls asleep. At least I did. Then, all of a sudden I was jarred awake by loud yipping while all 3 pups scrambled off the couch and my lap. Alas, there was a dog on the TV screen! And Jack, BoBo & Rockefeller had to keep this stranger from entering any further into “our space”. Even the cartoon pups such as those on “Paw Patrol” would elicit this behavior. I noticed my pups scrambling into position even before the visiting dog showed up on the TV screen! Suddenly it clicked; the reason why: Every commercial has its own theme song or tune, and my pups had learned the opening notes to every commercial that would showcase a pooch of some kind. How smart are they?
It took me having to spend several hours, or days, in front of the TV to realize how it affected my pups. I can’t tell you what product the commercials were promoting, but within 3 notes my pups knew if a dog would soon be on the TV screen.
Easter is on April 9th this year. For at least one more year the choir of Rocky Hill Baptist Church will not be singing at Pretty Place for an Easter Sunrise Service; maybe next year? The choir will perform a beautiful cantata on Easter Sunday though, inside Rocky Hill church at 11:00 AM. Everyone is invited. Following the Easter cantata, led by Lenoir Bishop, the pastor of Rocky Hill, Dr. Leland Holland, will bring the Easter message. We hope to see you there!
Saturday is April 1st; no fooling! I have a granddaughter turning 22 on April 2nd, and a grandson turning 9 on April 10th. Easter is April 9th which would have been my Joe’s birthday. If you’re celebrating a milestone (birthday, anniversary, etc.) in April please let me know by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!

NOZEE MAKES THE NEWS
Our Tuxedo cat, Nozee, pulled a disappearing act again and was eventually found behind the sofa bed. At least he only weighs 9 lbs. and got himself out. We thought we had fixed it so neither cat could get in there but Nozee found a way.
Nozee somehow cut his foot fooling around and squeezing into places he shouldn’t be. This time he had managed to squeeze himself in under the dash. I first noticed blood on the passenger side seat and then there were bloody tracks everywhere even on the bed. We tried to bandage it twice and he would immediately get the bandage off and start tracking blood everywhere. An emergency trip was made to Foreverfriends veterinary clinic near the campground. They tried to rip us off big time. The vet said he would need to sedate Nozee and put 2 stitches in his tiny cut. Estimated cost $600!!! Alternatively, he could use skin glue to fix it for about $200. Since when would it require sedation for 2 stitches? The glue worked fine - no stitches. The clinic required he get a rabies shot because we didn’t have proof of rabies vaccination. When his foot was “glued” they put one of those plastic collars on him (cone of shame) that he got off before we even got back to the RV. He got out of his carrier and took off without a limp.
You would never know Nozee even got hurt. I cleaned up all the blood but found some additional spots this morning. He is back to his busy self.
