The Wedding

Remember Drake and Sol? After lots of preparations, Benji and Ms. Zulu attended their wedding.  It was their first and they can’t stop woofing about it. You can read all about it here:

R.I.P. Ducky I

Rest in Pieces, Ducky I

I am sad to announce that Operation Ducky I has failed. I tried to get to the heart* of it, but as of yesterday afternoon, around 2:05 p.m. EST, Ducky I, my ally and companion, succumbed. (* Every dog knows that the squeaker is the heart and essence of every playmate aka SA (Stuffed Animal)). Let’s start at the beginning though.

At some point earlier yesterday morning, Ducky I seemed to have stopped squeaking. All doggies instinctively know that you should always, always attempt CPR.  So that is what I tried with all my might. SA CPR is tricky and a bit different from your regular CPR. To get to the heart of our playmates, you have to start at the seams. I even got my big sister involved but whatever we did nothing helped poor Ducky. Instead of getting better, he only seemed to get worse as the day wore on. I did find the heart though. However, I may have been a bit too hesitant as I didn’t know right away what to do with it. In the end, I decided to run away with it, and I believe that was the wrong move. To be fair, this was my first rescue mission. Anyway, when I got back to my quarters,  poor Ducky lay lifeless on my bed. All may not be lost though as Ducky’s heart still continues to squeak. So, we are talking amongst ourselves how to use this piece of Ducky I once again in the near future.  In the meantime, Ducky II has been trained intensively by Ducky I, Ms. Zulu, and me, and is now 100% ready to take over Ducky I’s duties.  We must always remember though how Ducky I bravely has kept me company, all those dark lonely nights, in my forever home. R.I.P. Ducky I, I love you forever and will keep your heart close to me,

Benji.

Ducky I, we will never forget the good times we had together 

Ducks in a Row

What’s up you ask? Well, I should report that I haven’t been on a super-secret-mission yet after I passed the exam last week. As you can imagine I am eager to flash my badge; you know, the one with Therapy Animal on it! I practiced flashing it many times already. I think I am fluent now so I got all my ducks in a row [as you can witness here; and yes, I now have two Duckys!].

So the waiting is on mom to finish her part. At least she passed the criminal check (Sooo glad to know that I am not living with a criminal; after all moving is not my favorite hobby) and she finished the medical screening and paperwork. Now, all that is left are the shadow visits. I can’t go with her then, so I have to trust that she will be alright without me. Since there are no treats in sight and dinner is still far out, I think I will catch up on my sleep for now. Maybe you should do the same. 

Happy dreams,    

Benji
