Cricket Bug

Gee, Livvy gets all the air time on this blog. Well, she’s MY companion, and the other cat and the dogs and the bird are the kids’ pets. Funny how all the pets love the Mom, though. They are all nuts about me. I suppose it’s because I am the “meal ticket.”

Here’s our cutie Yorkie, Cricket. We sometimes call him Cricket Bug. He’s as cute as one in a rug!

Yorkies are adorable, but they are, um, energetic. That’s an understatement. They are MANIACAL. But they are so cute and they are never mean or ornery. Always sweet and perky. They do tend to get constipation, however, which is why Cricket Bug there is wrapped in a towel after a long, long sitz bath. We’re all glad that’s over, especially my daughter who did most of the grunt work. To prevent constipation in small dogs, give them a teaspoon of canned fresh pumpkin a day. Yeah. I gotta get that.

    That pumpkin is supposed to help. Cricket sure is cute. I have never had a small dog, just middle sized dogs. Bet it is kind of fun to have such a small dog. Have a great evening.

    Grace has some medicine from the doctor for constipation and I just give it to her every once in awhile. It is a sticky liquid and she gets a little squirt every now and then. I can tell she isn’t feeling well because her fur gets all icky. I will have to try the pumpkin. I hear that the animals like to eat that too.

    Cricket Bug is cute–it’s about time you share your pets with us! I didn’t realize you had so many.
