Good morning, going to be another sunny warm day This picture was taken nearby us in Tarpon Springs last night. The Great Blue Heron was admiring the sunset I think. My sis Deena’s daughter and hubby are here visiting, they arrived Monday. They sure are loving the warm nice weather and sitting out on the porch in the evening in shorts a t-shirt. Yesterday they went to Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, where they watched the. Manatee swimming in the hot springs. We have been there and it is fun. They visited last winter also, and my niece Pammy jumped… Read more »

Isn’t it lovely Beryl. I do love the Heron and have always enjoyed the one at HI, watching him fishing for his meals. ♥ It will be a beautiful screen saver, I think I will do that also bigsmile

Hi Ardy, that was pretty scary when she jumped but she super LOVED it she said. She is also the daughter who found Sis’s puppy for her last May at the Amish community. I wonder how they are doing staying at Deena’s with Tilly jumping and barking and running in circles all the time. I was there Sunday and Tilly never stopped jumping on me and Sis is trying to spray her with water to stop her. I was half soaked when I left…lol Its a real problem though and I wonder how Pam and hubby Chuck like the constant… Read more »

Oh gosh….that would drive me crazy when visiting her. Poor dog does need training.

It is beyond anything you could imagine Ardy. My sis Barb is going mad with listening to Tilly bark from Deena’s porch day after day. Deena had Denny put wire around her porch railings when we got here in November. He put a gate in for her so Tilly could be on the porch. Deena keeps her door ajar to that Tilly can run in and out all day. Any sound at all and she is out there barking away. Deena seems oblivious to it and Barb has told her she has to get a correction collar but Deena keeps… Read more »

No those collars are cruel, sorry IMO ! But the dog is not happy no dog likes being like that and needs help from the vet or good training classes ! Poor dog seems happy but its really not !

Not a shock collar but a correction collar if the dog barks it gives a light static but if the dog keeps barking it gets higher. I hate them also but Deena does not drive and has no means to get to training and she would not do it anyways. No one wants to drive her to training classes anyway. The dog in the car is off the wall crazy.

A lot of the problem is Deena laughs and thinks she is cute acting up. Deena is the one who needs a collar not the dog! Sorry for my rant but she is driving us all crazy. hypnotize

Thank you Kathy ♥ We feel a little responsibility to the neighbors as she is our kin and we can’t get through to Deena. Barb has really been outspoken but it goes nowhere.

Tilly only weights 8 pounds but she is strong and slippery as a seal. You cannot hold her she bites you, she hates being held. I tried picking her up and she was like a wet fish.

Ardy, she also has a fixation with peoples faces and keeps leaping at faces to nip. She caught my bottom lip when I first got here so now it’s me duck and jump as she jumps and nips. It’s insane. Deena just keeps saying ‘ I don’t know why she is so crazy, she is so good with just me’…ARRRRGGGGGGG

Deena has been here for over 20 winters and the people around her place have been here a long time also. They like Deena, she is a kind and good person but she just doesn’t get it with this dog. Denny asked a couple neighbors if they were upset with the dog and they said, ‘oh it’s okay’. They don’t want to complain about her but they should.

I would have to i think but then again we had neighbors years ago that had a chihuahua and kept it outside at night even in the winter and it barked ALL NIGHT by our bedroom. And we didnt complain to them.

That is just it Ardy, you hate to complain to a close neighbor because you have to face them afterwards I guess.

Yes and the dad could be kind of mean at times so we didnt complain to them

Have you thought of a plug in calmer, that stays on all the time and calms the dog down ! No harm to humans but gosh that dog needs something, lol !

I haven’t but I had an expensive bottle of a calming spray that I got from our Vet. I gave it to Deena but I know she hasn’t used it. You spray it on the pillows or beds where the dog spends time and it gives them a feeling of calmness. At least it should at over $30. a bottle!

Good morning, its raining, what more can I say. My son popped in to see if I was still around and that’s 5 days without seeing anyone, one of the reasons I hate the rain as if its dry I can go out into the garden which does make a change from four walls ! Really ready for Spring !
