All Our Children Meow and Woof: November 2007

All Our Children Meow and Woof

I created this blog to sort through my emotions as Finnegan, a great Irish Wolfhound, fought bone cancer for nearly 26 months. Fortunately, his battle subsided for many months and during the course of the 26 months, I shared stories about his feline siblings. On August 8, 2008, Finny passed on in my husband's and my arms. He fought the good fight and he will always have a special place in my heart. *If you have a question, please write me at finnegandog at gmail dot com.*

Inspired by Nanook and Pooka.

We have been getting some weird searches over at Finneganland. I don't know what to tell you but I thought I would share BECAUSE I DO NOT WANT TO BE THE ONLY ONE TO POSSESS THIS KIND OF KNOWLEDGE. Some of the searches are okay, some are - oh my god with the F__? - and some are okay, dude, whatever. So here we go. Please pick one and give your answer in the comments section. More than one person can pick one of the nine options. The funniest one will get some sort of prize from me. I don't know what it will be yet, we are working at that over at the Finnegan Headquarters.

Here are the search terms verbatim (there were some other ones that were funny/creepy/disturbing but we currently can't find them):
  1. Pet Glamor Shots
  2. How to make my own child fence
  3. should we take the puppy into our bedroom the first night
  4. Pictures of possessed girls
  5. Why cats shiver
  6. Photos children looking over fences
  7. kids and Irish Wolfhounds
  8. write a grocery list for two
  9. I have four children and need a wagon to pull them in
Go, you crazy kids!

Deadline is November 15, 2007.

200th Post

Where do I begin? First, I am still here. I've made it through 200 posts and I think that is pretty damn special. I might be slowing down but guess what? I am 7.5 years old, I have cancer, and I am giant breed dog. Of course I am slowing down. Second, this is about the time of year where I finished my chemotherapy. Pretty amazing, isn't it? A whole year since I went to that hospital a hundred miles away to be injected with poisons. Regardless I barely had any side effects and it kicked cancers ass for the time being. ROAR! So I say, let's celebrate my recovery and lasting power! Let's celebrate dogs all over the world and how awesome we truly are! Let's celebrate the dogs we have lost, the ones we've met and sniffed, and the ones joining us in the future! Because right now I am all about celebrating. I've got the Guinness. Who is with me?
