Saving a Life — Cheap Avocados, Annoying Dogs, and Following Your Bliss

Just a quick note this morning to all of my friends and fans who have been missing me so badly.  The humans took me on another one of those road trips.  This one was a month long and we went over 8500 miles.  Oh yeah, you’ll hear more about that later.

But what I want to share this morning is about what happened yesterday.  Speedbump (as I unaffectionately refer to him because he is always in my way) went out yesterday morning to do some errands.  Let me just mention that he is a compulsive grocery shopper.  Both humans usually leave the house together, but yesterday Speedbump went out and did his own bopping around and left Mama here for me to play with.  One of his big thrills is finding cheap avocados at this certain store.  So after doing some other shopping at other places for other odds and ends, off he went in search of the avocados.  His mission was a success and he took his bag full of cheap avocados out to the car.

What he discovered in the parking lot was one of those little dog creatures going nuts in a pick-up truck next to his parked car.  Maybe I haven’t explained that Speedbump is a dog guy.  He lets his dog, Dusty, sleep in the middle of the bed.  That is my spot.  Silly man.  So anyway, Speedbump had to go see what was up with this dog that was freaking out in the truck next to him.  What he found was a man slumped over the steering wheel and this dog barking and pawing trying to rouse him.  Yikes!

Speedbump called 911 and the paramedics were there almost instantly.  Turns out this man had fallen into a diabetic coma.  The paramedics quickly revived the man and he was fine. Turns out this dog was the man’s service dog, trained to alert him when his blood sugar gets low.

Hmm, I guess there is a use for annoying barking creatures after all.

So…I think the moral of the story is do what makes you happy and you will be in the flow of Life.  So go lie in the sunshine or go shopping or bark a lot.  Whatever works for you…

  1. Oh JhaJha! What a wonderful welcome post, to herald your return. LOVE it! You are so gorgeous. I need to show these pics to Bugsy. Maybe they will inspire him to — open up. (Come on Bugsy. Get the business over with. JhaJha is waiting for you.)

    • Anita,
      Thank you for stopping by when you are so busy with so much…um, crap…so to speak. May all flow smoothly. For everyone involved. Your new little Fangie is sooo cute! You are doing a great job with those two. We kept up with your posts while on the road, but couldn’t see the comments or photos. My smart phone isn’t that smart…or maybe it’s me. Anyway, it is good to reconnect and see all of the cuteness.
      Patience and hugs as you all meld into a new family unit!


      • Oh Dawn, it is just SO great to have you back full-force. Isn’t Fang just the cutest guy in the world except for Bugs? I LOVE both of them. Thank you so much.

    • Oh, Silly Bean. I do not understand why sharing photos of my gorgeousness will inspire my poor friend Bugsy to poo. Nor do I understand why sharing his situation with the world would facilitate any movement. If I were in a similar situation I would bite someone and then yak all over the place. Silly silly humans.

      • Dear JhaJha, the Bean is consternated (not to say constipated) to think that her airing Bugs’s alimentary problems on the world stage would be embarrassing for him. Bean regrets that very much. All errors are her own and not Bugs’s. Of course you know that. You are both no-fault Cats, after all. On his part, he has no idea why your beautiful self should be linked in Bean’s mind with poo. Definitely yakk- and bite-worthy, he shares that opinion too. He is glad to have your companionship on this subject as in many other things as well. Please bite a wildebeest for him until he is more able to join in.
