spocksdad Spock gave us (and himself) a scare this morning. Since I've been retired and he's a senior, he sleeps at foot of big bed with us and Eva on dog bed next to my side of bed.

Well exactly at 0222 (from back porch camera mic) Spock fell or lept off bed onto tile floor. Sound of his nails scurrying on tile woke us up. No barking or other noises. I went over to him and he was feet down on floor, but couldn't get up, as I think he was sound asleep when incident happened. Later, I checked my front door and patio cameras for loud sounds in neighborhood, but all was silent, except for sounds of his nails scurrying on the tile. Spock will sometimes leap out of bed, even in dead of night, when he hears the cats going at it (rare here) in our yard or a firework going off, then bark to awake everyone. (doin' his job)

I helped him up to his feet and his ears were back and he had a "deer in the headlights" scared look on his face. My first thought was that he's experiencing a seizure of some sort? I fed him a few pieces of kibble and he ate them. He then walked over to cling to his mommy (DW) for consolation. As I went to go pee in bathroom, I slipped on large pee puddle from Spock at foot of bed. He must have been so scared, he relieved himself after getting up. He only has done that before when a lightning bolt struck very close to house. (lightning plus thunder together)

I had him walk around house, with me and his legs appear normal, no apparent injuries, except to his pride. Maybe he was dreaming about jumping off our upstairs porch after a squirrel? He dreams a lot and kicks me with his legs while "running". Brought in the good Kirkland dog bed to bedroom for him to finish sleep on, maybe he'd be scared to sleep on bed again? Comforted him for a short while and he petted me back, as gently as he could with his humongous Dobe paws.

It was then I thought, oh boy, it's going to be very tough when this one finally departs us... Recently, I believed that Eva, with all her leg and health problems would be the first to go. Spock still has the health, energy and spirit he did as a 2 y/o puppy. I am just so thankful they both made it past 10 years old with us and any time from here on, is a bonus!


Oh yeah....10 minutes after we finally all went to sleep again, Mr. Spock jumps right back up on the bed and laid down his head on kiddie pillow to sleep. Dobes love their routine...

--------------------------------------------------------

FYI: Yes, that's where the phrase: "Scared the pi$$ out of him!" originates from.

Went to look at your test link and saw a staircase pic w/6 views. Link working good.

Obviously, if you are striving for more views, you'll need to add a couple sure-fire components to your next picture/video...

These could be a cat doing something crazy and an attractive girl, in yoga outfit, like the next Imgur post linked from your page (32K views)!

More Crazy Cat Antics for AB, Lannie & Mel...

Beaumont67 We like Hellman's Mayonnaise on toasted BLT's with Pemeal Canadian bacon.
- or a toasted chicken sandwich, with tomato and lettuce

I get Hot Course Honey Mustard @ a local Bee farm...real good stuff.
- think be spelled "Coarse", Mrs67 thinks

And we would love to try...Duke's Mayonnaise / have to look for it, @ Keoger's.
- if its good enough for John Wayne / it good enough, for the Beau

Troublemaker!

I am leery.

It's like they have my phone tapped or something.

The stupidity over there suddenly stopped when I made contact with the attorney. Attorney and I had a phone conversation and that is where it ended. Haven't made it to the office to pay him to send the letter. I am pretty sure he didn't send a letter pro bono.

I probably just jinxed myself saying that.

Weird about the mayonnaise—we can get both in the stores here. So I looked it up—it's one of those people swear by the brand they're used to in spite of them being the same thing. Some can't tell them apart. Others say they taste different. Maybe it's a difference in the eggs they use. If they even use eggs in the commercial stuff.

Storm then increases dramatically, and relentlessly, as if striving for attention. As suddenly as the storm arrives, it leaves, as people return to normal in aftermath.

Or it could be.

You appear to be tending to everyone’s business perfectly at home.
Now if there was just a way to get paid 20 bucks and hour doing what you do.......
