Hell-a-copter and Herbs

Man, I'm dragging my fuzzy butt --not literally, I don't have worms, but I'm TIRED!

Mom and I were snuggled together sleeping nicely (dad was at work) and about 5 a.m. we started hearing this LOUD woke us both up, heck, it even woke up Simon. Do you know how loud something must be to wake up a kitty from a dead sleep??

Anyway, I was like what the crap is that? Mom said it sounded like a hell-a-copter. She thought that maybe someone had had a wreck or something and they called in the Life Flight team. But then the hell-a-copter didn't leave. For two whole freakin' hours.

Mom and I tried to sleep through it, but everytime we almost dozed off, the damn thing would hover like right over the house! Mom then started thinking "I wonder if they're looking for a criminal or something?" I told mom not to worry, if someone tried to get in the house Duncan and I would eat them.

Finally it went away, but then it was time to get up for work. Ugh. Daddy called and mom "went off" on the hell-a-copter and dad said some woman had gone missing (I think she actually just went to the store without telling her family) this morning and that must be what they were looking for.

Mom said they hoped they found the woman cause if mom found her she was going to give her "a piece of her mind" about interrupting her sleep. Did I ever mention that mom isn't a morning person?

In other news, mom has added some more pills to the top of the microwave (that's where she puts all our supplements and stuff, I have no idea why). She brought home two new things for us to try: Vitamin E and Ester C.

Mom says the Vitamin E will help with my winter itches that I have. All this dry weather is making me itchy! We're already on salmon oil, but the E will help the fish oil absorb better, making me less itchy. Here's hopin!

The Ester C is for Duncan. Apparently, new research is showing that Ester C helps dogs with arthritis and/or dysplasia. You have to start off slow, cause it can cause some bad poops, but hopefully by the next week or two Dunc will be up to the 2000mg dose and we'll see how that goes. Here's a link to some info about Ester C and dogs:

That's about it here...we're going to try out dangdest to make it till midnight, but that stupid hella-copter didn't help! Mom said she's going to give me a treat tonight of pumpkin mixed with yogurt! Yummy!

Have a safe, happy and wonderful New Year's! Hugs and kisses to you all!


  1. Woo - sorry about all of the noise. One of the many things we don't miss about moving out of a city. We don't get many flying objects that are not creatures.

  2. I sure can relate to not being a morning person like your mom! I am so sorry about the noise from the hell-i-copter. They come over our house and make lots of noise along with the airplanes. Thanks for the link to the meds for dogs!!! I do hope everyone has a wonderful New Years Eve and a great New Years Day!!! Lots of love, Holly and her mom Deb

  3. Thanks for the info on Ester C...will check on it for old Zack!
    Happy New Year!!!

  4. Those pesky helicopters can be so annoying, especially early in the morning. Hope you make it to midnight, we probably won't, because 9:00 is bedtime and that means treat time!!!

    You have some great ideas there for New Year's resolutions or revolutions, which is it now?:-)

    Happy New Year to you and wishes from us to you for a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year.

    Woos, Phantom and Thunder

  6. Hi Anna,

    That helacopter noise would make us mad too cause we don't do mornings well around here either!

    We wish you all a New Year of love, health and happiness!

    The yogurt and punkin treat sounds nummy!



    Here's to another year of friendship and smiles and holding up each other through the trials. Over the past year you have brought us many giggles, some laughter and always a feeling that the world is a better place because you are in it.

    Thanks for the reminder that our momma needs to buy more Ester-C☺

  8. Happy New Year My friend!!!

    Happy New Year!

  11. That was way toooooo early for a wake up call. We wouldn't like it either.
    Thanks for the info about Salmon Oil, Vitamin E & Ester C. We(make that Mom) is going to check out that website. Someone told us about Salmon Oil & Vitamin E, but Mom wasn't sure about how much to give Sasha.
    Happy New Year to all of you. Thanks for visiting us. We enjoy it.
    Ernie, Sasha & now Chica

  12. Hey Anna, thanx for the link! I'll have to check it out for my GSD's. There almost the same age as you! They turned one this passed October, you guys would probably have a lot in common. But they are both boys and I heard girls and boys usually don't get along well, or is that an old dog's tail?
