ARGY BARGY

Two of the Boyz (Dingo and the Mop) were in an argy bargy mood today.  But after treats they both calmed down.  The Mop did go outside and bury his baby later, so well in fact I had trouble digging it up but I persevered and ducky is back in the house.

Dufus, often called Linus, was in a very mellow mood….or is that the dumps.  He was up enough to accept his treats though.  They all settled down with treats and loud shouts of NO!

el Gato Gordo, also know as Pablo was loud and instant but finally settled after several spoonfuls of food and two servings of sliced turkey…..and finally we all had a nap.

04-27-pabloI then fed the fish and came home.  Only 2 1/2 more hours and then it is evening song.  Just over 7 days to go, I’m not sure I’ll make it!

~~dru~~

TODAY I WATERED BY HAND – FRONT, OUT BACK, AND INSIDE THEN WE ALL HAD SLICED TURKEY AND HUGS.  LINUS, FONDLY KNOW AS DUFUS FINALLY GOT THROUGH!

 

THEN I SPENT 9 WHOLE MINUTES ON MY B-IN-LAW’S SLIDER MACHINE AND FEEL LIKE I NEED A NAP BUT I HAD TO FILL UP THE FOUNTAIN SO THAT THE “WHITE NOISE” WOULD KEEP THE BEASTS CALM AND THE CROSS WORD JUST CALLED MY NAME.

4-26-d

FINALLY, I GAVE PABLO (EL GATO GORDO) SOME MORE TURKEY AND JACK aka “THE MOP” ANOTHER BONE AND CALLED IT MY MORNING RUN!

Well I girdled my loin and fought the fight but I didn’t have to actually leave the house because, due to safety reasons – the IRS doesn’t just let you show up any more and just take a number. Whole thing failed anyway but by way of the Internet.

I found I needed an appointment and tried to get one but there were no appointments within my needed time frame; got the call Friday afternoon at 3:15pm and the documents are due no later than tomorrow Wednesday so I’m screwed.

However it turns out even if I had gone I would not have been able to obtain my “transcript” as it has not been entered into the system, so is truly not available.  I failed to enclose a 1095-A form for 2015 and so the IRS requested that I send a copy and some additional information and even though I have done that, they have 60 days before they must record the corrected return…..again I’m screwed.

The Federal/State help program will now just toss my application (I’ve worked on this since the end of February) and I must start all over but there is no reasons to do that until my tax returns are not only filed but recorded and certified transcripts can be obtain.   I’m SCREWED!  At least for now.  I’ll start again as soon as I file 2016 which is only waiting for that years 1095-A from my insurance company…………sigh.

I’m on the way to feed the dogz and spend some time with them.

I have to go to the IRS office today because I need a certified copy of my 2015 tax return for my Federal Save Your Home program application.  The IRS told them I haven’t filed but I have.  I finally caught up all my past due returns and just filed recently.  I hope I will have better luck obtaining a copy than the program did…..if not I’m nixed because of documentation errors and must start the process again or go in some other direction.

DIRECTION AS YET TO BE DETERMINED!

Here is a picture of my “Getting Ready”, taken before the tablet pooped out.  I’m taking a leaf from Jason’s Daily Posts.  ~~dru~~

I’m back from the morning Boyz run of three hours and all the boyz, including the cat are just fine.  I took them marrow bones (cat ate a piece of meat from one) but I couldn’t get pictures cuz my tablet pooped out.  Poor “HE” will have to fix the problem again.  

I only found two “we love you Auntie dru surprises (though why I call them surprises when this is part of why I’m paid – you know what goes in, must come out.)  Anyway I couldn’t snap it cuz of the aforementioned tablet problem.  So LUCKY YOU!

Because I couldn’t get new pictures I’m rehashing one from yesterday.  

This is Dufus in their outside bed and remember he weighs close to 150 pounds, I could sleep in that bed myself.

Linus-04-17Now for the rest of my day…..post or posts to follow.

Below:  Pablo, Linus aka Dufus and Jack “The Mop” or now better know as the biter – little son of a gun.

Nothing and no one has died yet; not plants, not animals, not nothin’ but it is early dayz!  Stay tuned!   ~~dru~~

Why do I take this job….Oooo I remember, the money!

sub titled….Dufus and Dingo AND “the Mop” will not doubt take Auntie dru for an

e -ticket ride

So I’m starting my twelve day paid stint of watching after my canine and feline nephews while my sister and her hubby take a skiing rest hiatus up north and NOTHING of note happened this morning.  I know it is early days yet but given this brood, when “Auntie dru” comes over, all bets are off.

Between Dufus, Dingo, the “Mop” and Pablo ,the rather slow cat; no one bit me, no one chewed anything beyond recognition, no one tried to escape and they only left me a couple of little doodles and one big pile of “we love you Auntie dru and are so glad to see you”.

(Aside these are my own names, not their given ones, for the book I’m going to write someday about our adventures in care giving and their love of pranks)

The three dogs consist of one mixed rescue dog that must have some pit bull and lots of a far larger dog – Dane? and perhaps including some Shar – Pei.   One full blooded Basenji (rescued from the streets) and one Cock a Pooh mop thingie that has emotional issues after three attempts before finally finding his forever home.

The Cat, Pablo, was found run down on the road as a kitten and has since then lived a charmed and charming life and is GINORMOUS, plus loving but demanding.  (Talks a lot but I don’t always understand the question however he will always settle down with some stroking and bitties).

-All the animals gain weight when Auntie dru comes to town-

So this morning all were calm and serene, took their treats like gentlemen, had an hour nap while dru watered plants, scooped the poop and pooped out on her own.  Also they all exited stage backyard when asked the first time.

THEY WERE JUST AUNTIE DRU’S DARLINGS AS THEY CAN OFTEN BE

Sad to day they can also be devils and I believe they just hang out in the back yard (IN A SOMEWHAT SMALL CONDO BACK YARD) and plot how they can take Auntie dru for a ride.  In the aggregate the 4 of them weigh more than 200 lbs…or thereabouts.

Assuming all is well this evening on the pm run….there will no more posts today but still there are still more tomorrows.  They still have several outdoor beds in which to “MAKE IT SNOW!”  Hopefully that will come around days 9 thru 12.

FOR A NOT SO GOOD TIME, SIT BACK AND ENJOY THIS BASENJI VIDEO WHICH I’M GLAD TO SAY IS NOT AN ACTUAL VIDEO OF “my” DINGO.

Seldom does Mother Earth speak to me

but when she sometimes does,

I feel her warm arms comfort me

and tell me I have worth!

The Mother embraces all; the sun the moon the sky.

She keeps them all in harmony and still has time for I.
