A Low Key Fourth

Made In America image

Happy Fourth of July!

We’ve had a busy week.  Last week I got sprayed by a skunk in my back yard…twice.

DSC_0010We think the skunk had babies behind my shed.  I don’t like it there & can’t help myself from trying to make it go away…it’s my yard!

Then two days ago on Tuesday, my mom person had some minor surgicals.  She’s doing well, but not feeling 100%. Don’t worry, she’ll be just fine, she just needs to rest.

Besides the skunking, I’ve been having a bad time too.  Where we live they have made big changes to the fireworks laws. That means every weekend & some weeknights there are loud fireworks. They scare me very much.

I have my Thundershirt & some medicines they give me, but my people don’t like giving them to me cause they make me kind of a zombie boy.

20130627_171818You can imagine this week has been really bad with the fireworks. Me & my mom person have spent lots of time snuggled up in the bed helping each other.

I even spent a little time letting Chloe sniff me & explaining to her that Mrs. Skunk made me smell this way.

DSC_0019Chloe & I don’t have many conversations, but I wanted to tell her that is she sees any skunks in the house, she should not try to be it’s friend.

The loss of our friend Thunder has been weighing heavy on our hearts. I know that all of Blogville shares our grief.

So for us friends, it’s a low key Fourth of July, but even with everything that’s going on my mom person has spent time telling me this week why we are so lucky to be Americans.

  1. Oh no! We’re sorry you got skunkified, Oskar. We bet that bath helped, but we’re sure it was no fun.

    Purrs and prayers to your mom person for a speedy recovery.

    Happy Fourth. Sorry to hear about the firework laws there. We HATE the fireworks — especially the loud and illegal ones that were going off in our neighborhood tonight. 🙁

  3. we hope you smell better soon- and feel better too.
    We have been low key too- cause were sad about Thunder- but he is an angel now and I think he kept you safe.

  4. We are sorry about the skunky smells. We hope your mom feels better. We have had fireworks, but when Mommy turns the a/c on, it’s not so bad. Also, she tells me the neighbor across the street doesn’t do them any more and the fireworks are farther away, now.

  5. Gosh Mr. Oskar, I’m sorry Mrs. Skunk sprayed you with her stinky smell! We’re having lots of extra firewerks in our nayborhood too, there are lots of loud ones this year. I wish peoples would be more considerut of doggies’ and other pets’ and animals’ feelings when it comes to firewerks. We hope you and Miss Pam get lots of cozy rest-time together so she can get all better and you can relax through the firewerks!

  10. Oh Oskar, that is our Mom’s biggest fear – those skunks – can you just imagine trying to get that stink out of our deep thick coats???

    We are sorry to hear about your Mom. Please give her some extra kisses from us and tell her we all hope she is feeling better soon.

    Thank you again for everything for Thunder.

  11. Poor buddy getting skunked. Mr. Fox got it twice and Scruffy once. Seems the terrier fur holds the smell more. That means more than one bath. Hope you are all feeling better and starting to smell better too!
    Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy
