I've Been Robbed

Out here in the blogaverse it's been a lovely week, but I have to tell you here at home it could have been better. I don't like to whine (not entirely true) but the ear thing hasn't improved and I had to go back to the vet today. Now I have oral antibiotic and am getting new drops for the ears.

That's not great news, but that's not all. There was a big Spring clean-up in the back yard this week. The weather was great those days and I was not allowed out in back for the afternoon sun, but no matter. They were concerned because the gate had to be open during all this work. I understand. It really screwed with my schedule, but I'm over that. The thing that has really got me upset was that when I finally got the yard back, my leaves were gone! Stolen, I have to assume. I had this great pile, right in the southeast corner of the yard that I just liked to walk through. And what's there now? Nothing. some dirt, some grass - not a leaf in site.

Me, Lola, with my leaves in happier times.

That's what they looked like. I know they were mine because no one else was using them at all. If you should see them anywhere, please let me know. It'll take another six human months - that's three and a half standard dog years - to get another good pile together. That's quite a long time.


  1. A spring clean up, the Vet, drops ...what next! We hope you feel better and get lots of goodies for not whining. BOL
    Benny & Lily

  2. Hi, Lola!
    Hmmm.... sounds like lot of events!
    I hope the meds help your ear to get better soon!
    And for your leaves... not fair! Just be patient!
    Kisses and hugs

  3. oh noes, miss lola!
    the ear drops are bad enough, and then someone goes and steals all your leafies?! that is...that is just...oh, i can't think of a good enough word...wait, mama says to say that is just un-con-scion-able. yeah, that.
    i, the booker man, will totally be on uber lookout for your special pile of leafies. i also hope that your ear gets better really really fast like.
    the booker man

  4. Oh, my sincerest condolences! Ear drops and leaf theft?! What is this world coming to? Miss Lola, have you checked to see if any of those shifty tree rats might have stolen your leaves? They take all kinds of things!


  5. Oh Lola, I so feel for you... and 6 months is a long time in dog years... perhaps you can consider putting a missing ad on milk cartons... hope you ear infection will improve soon.

    Licks, hero

  6. Thank you, everyone for the commiseration. I knew you'd understand. Hero, I think that's a good idea about the milk carton. I will do it.

  7. The nerve of those turkey's taking away your floofy leaves! What were they thinking? Just not right...

  8. Dear Lola...I am so very much sorry for your recent woes. Sometimes I just don't know whats this world is coming to. Surely whoever stoled your leaves coulda gone out and bought some leaves of their own. If I had any, I'd send you some. But we only haves pine needles in our yard. And that's prolly not the same, is it?

    Sympathetic Wiggles & Wags,

    PeeS. Me and momma thought Scarlett O'Brindle was one of the funniest things ever. Okay, well, momma had to explain it to me but after she did, I definitely thought it was one of the most funniest things ever!

  9. That is a shocking crime. Those leaf stealers must have been watching your house and known when you were locked up inside. I hope you get your leaves back.


  10. Lola, who would such a thing? Are there any enemies you can think of? Maybe they're being held for ransom?

    I hope your ears start feeling better too.

    Stella, Gunther and Betty
