I Don't Think So!

We're starting to rearrange and figure out how to live in a house without a big dawg.  The humans are still sad and do alot of talking about "The Boy".  Tommy and Libby don't seem to notice anything has changed at all.  The pest, Natty, and I, however, have really felt the loss.  It's weird because when I go outside I think I smell Ziggy.  Every time I go out to do my business I have to walk the perimeter and look for him.  I'm confused and don't know where he could be hiding.  I know the humans say he's gone but I can smell him.  Mom says after the rain that scent should go away.  We'll see.  In the mean time, Natty has taken to sleeping on Mom's legs at night while she's watching tv.  You all know from my post last month that Natty liked to sleep on Ziggy. 

Well, the other night he was sleeping on my mom's legs while I was asleep next to her.  Slowly he lowered his feet, one at a time, until all four were touching me.  I don't think so Natty!  I am NOT going to be your new electric blanket (hmmm, given my size I guess the most I could be is a heating pad!)  That cat is such a pest!

Aw, Pedro, I'm glad you guys are doing ok. I think you and the "pest" can actually be a great source of comfort for each other right now. I think you two SHOULD snuggle!

Oh Little Buddy -

Ziggy is there -
He'll always be there -
But he's just not 'there' -

He's furever a part of your lives - woo know that -

He's probably even the reason Natty did that!

I think Natty has the right idea. You guys need to bond now, plus it's cold! Can't wait to see how your relationship will redefine itself in the weeks to come. Please share if you get a chance.

Khyra said it very well. Phantom had a hard time adjusting to Dakota's being gone, but with time he was OK.

Pedro, give Natty a chance, you might like the extra warm body on you.

Hugs to your Mom and the rest of the family, the OP Pack

Pedro. take comfort in Natty. you both are missing a good friend and need each other even more.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Pedro.
I understand you miss Ziggy and you smell him there. Yes... he will be forever there.
Give Natty a chance! He misses him too.
Kisses and hugs

Holly and Khady said...

During this difficult time, it's good to have such close family. Even if they are cats! I think Natty is just trying to be there for you. You can all help your humans by being good. At least for a while!

It must be very confusing for you and Natty Pedro. It is nice to find a cat friend who loves dogs so much. We think one day you will become good little buddies.
Wags and kisses, Dinah Bridget and Elliot xx

Bobby said...

We feel for you all, Ziggy must be a big miss in all your lives.
Be kind to Natty Pedro she will miss him as well.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

You all must miss Ziggy so much. Purrs still coming over to you all.
Natty sure is getting big, Pedro! Maybe you should give him a break and let him touch you sometimes?
We have not seen pics of Libby lately, how is she doing?

Ms. ~K said...

Ziggy will always be with you even if you can't see him.
You and Natty need each other right now...give it a try, you might like it!
Licks and sniffs,
Zack, Sassy and Buddy

Anna the GSD said...

Everyone's right, Ziggy will always be there! Mom still finds Maggie Dog hairs she left us as pressies. Just a reminder she's always there!! Big hugs!

Oh, and watch out for those kitties!

Dory and the Mama said...

Oh Pedro, I think being a heating pad won't be too bad...think of it as using her for an electric blankie...Ziggy would like that I think...

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We are sure that everyone misses Ziggy. It will take a bit of time. Remember all the good times...
You might have to let the pest sleep my you though!!

Big Sloppy Kisses

Hi Pedro,

I don't know what to say really. That picture is sad and sweet all at the same time. We are sorry you are without your Ziggy. You should take comfort where you find it though. Even if it's from a cat.


Life With Dogs said...

It's still tough to visit without that immediate pang. I hope you are as well as can be expected...

happy said...

He'll always live on in your memory. Glad you're taking one day at a time although Natty is taking one paw at a time with you there ;-)

Hailey said...

Enjoy the loving pesty kitty (achoo!)as you both need one another for comfort. Ziggy is looking a both of you and BOL! You the heating pad - pesty kitty (achoo!) the foot massager! The silver lining!

Hugs & smoochies! xoxo

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Good to hear that you all are adjusting! Hang in there and keep your paws up!!

Woofs and Kisses!

Niamh said...

Hope things are going ok for you and you are giving your people lots of extra attention as you are all missing Ziggy. I would not let any cat touch me though if I were you.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

Ditto what Khyra said. (((hugs)))
And we think it's sweet that Natty put his feet on you. Well, mom does anyway. If our cat Boomer did that, I would be afraid to move... she likes to bop me on the head when she gets mad!


River said...

We have picture evidence. I wouldn't let a cat touch me but I do see why he's doing it. You as a heating pad bol

love & wags,

Huskee and Hershey said...

We came back to check on you guys and glad that you are coping well.. it's not easy without your big boy around, but I hope it helps a bit when you think that he's up there in the clouds looking down at all of you with love... I bet he was grinning when he saw Natty trying to use you as a heating pad.. LOL!!

Doctor Dre said...

Angel and Kirby said...

Stop by our blog, Angel gave you an award.

Moco said...

That Natty is quite the feline. It must be a comfort to have one so caring. Bond well.

Hector and Lola said...

Pedro, we hope you and your family are doing better. That was very sweet of you to let Natty snuggle with you. Maybe you two will grow closer. :) -Hector and Lola
