The Manuscript For the Book About Reilly Is In Progress

The book has the following introduction and will, God willing, be submitted for publication and published soon:

Introduction: After “Momma” Began Blogging About Reilly & Made A Facebook Page About Her…    
 
 
 
That’s how this book came to be written. By the way, that post was written on October 25, 2016—or Tishri 24-25, 5776. Also, the posts that are contained in this book were written from 2014 to October 31, 2016—or from 5774-Tishri 29 and 30, 5776.
 
 




Mischief Night And "Momma"'s Kiboshed Costume Idea


  1. The kiboshed costume idea: a cone as the suction, a thundershirt or a jacket as the vacuum bag, and the tail as the handle. After all, both already have cones; Camille has a thundershirt, and Camille and Reilly have jackets; and we could've just gently wrapped cloth or tissue paper around Camille's and Reilly's tails.
  2. Mischief night: Camille steals toys from Reilly; Reilly tries to, eh, dominate Camille when she tries to steal the dreidel toy; both mischievously beg at the table for salmon, etc..
In other words, Halloween Eve was normal for what a normal Halloween Eve is at Reilly's and Camille's house.

A Short List Of Reilly's Saturday Antics


  1. Going into the upstairs bathroom and sniffing the toilet rim—as "Momma" later found out, that was not the first time that Reilly had done that—and this is part of why Reilly is not allowed in the bathroom.
  2. Begging to go on a walk when "Mom-Mom" was taking Camille to the vet—Reilly wondered why she couldn't go, and she looked out of one of the family room windows as "Mom-Mom" and Camille drove by the side of the house.
  3. Taking a chunk of peanut butter that "Auntie Michelle" accidentally dropped on the floor and biting "Auntie Michelle" as she refused to drop it—and even as she came over to "Momma" and went outside with "Auntie Michelle" to "go potty", she was still licking the peanut butter!
Incidental note: While "Momma" has some ideas about whom Reisy's "Daddy" might be (or at least whom she hopes that he might be), she's not sure that she's currently—and she's more sure that she's currently notin a position to share her specific thoughts about that with anyone but God, Reisy (even though Reisy is a canine—specifically, an adult puppy known as a "dog"as opposed to a human), and a few other people. If anything, the case seems to be that whoever Reisy's "Daddy" is might have to tell "Momma"—especially if he's among those whom "Momma" thinks strongly might be Reisy's "Daddy".

PS "Reisy" is one of Reilly's nicknames.

An Accidentally-Smoked Cutting Board, A Screen Door, And A ~3-Hour Chase—Short Version



  1. "Momma" accidentally turns on the wrong burner—she means to turn on the burner with the water-and-lavender-oil-filled pot on it.
  2. A sound like a fire alarm is going off—that's when "Momma" becomes aware of the smoke.
  3. "Momma" attempts to clear the later-thrown-away cutting board off of the burner, put as much as cold water on the burner as possible via squeezing a cloth—she had to do the same to the too-hot-to-touch board.
  4. She turned on the fans, opened the windows, turned off the heater, and opened the backyard door in the family room.
  5. With the screen door open and "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" trying to reach to close it, Reilly and Camille burst out into the backyard.
  6. What finally bribed Camille to come inside was to play with "Froggie".
  7. Meanwhile, Re-Poos-nik decided to stubbornly continue to stay outside. Never mind "Momma"'s use of the spray bottle, treats, gentle pushes with a stick, etc.. What finally bribed Reilly was the promise of a belly rub.
  8. In between the use the spray bottle and belly-rub promise, "Momma" had to call the non-emergency police to try to help her catch Ri. The non-emergency police, though, sadly could not send anyone to help her.
  9. Cam got yogurt and peanut butter as a treat as well as a stomach helper. Reisy also got some yogurt and peanut butter, mainly for her "nasties"-digesting stomach.
  10. Meanwhile, the house has a faint and nice smoky smell to it; the burn is still on the burner, and "Mom-Mom"—even though "Momma"'s 26—forbids her from using the stove when she's not home—despite that "Momma" diffused the smoke, called "Mom-Mom" to tell her shortly after it happened, etc..

Though I Forgive And Don't Begrudge, I Don't Forget

I'd be absolutely foolish to let my guard down and pretend that someone didn't wrong me when he or she did wrong me, especially when he or she comes back to slander and/or libel me about what he or she said and/or did. In fact, as I've come to know because of how I was abused during my childhood, one's placement of blame on his or her victim of slander and/or libel is abuse on top of abusethat kind of abuse is known as verbal abuse and/or emotional/mental abuse:

  • Verbal Abuse occurs when one person uses words and body language to inappropriately criticize another person. Verbal abuse often involves 'putdowns' and name-calling intended to make the victim feel they are not worthy of love or respect, and that they do not have ability or talent. If the victim speaks up against these statements, they are often told that the criticisms were "just a joke", and that it is their own problem that they do not find the joke funny. They may also be told that no abuse is happening; that it is "all in their head". Verbal abuse is dangerous because it is often not easily recognized as abuse, and therefore it can go on for extended periods, causing severe damage to victim's self-esteem and self-worth. Damaged victims may fail to take advantage of opportunities that would enrich their lives because they come to believe they are not worthy of those opportunities.
  • Psychological Abuse (also known as mental abuse or emotional abuse) occurs when one person controls information available to another person so as to manipulate that person's sense of reality; what is acceptable and what is not acceptable. For example, [a form of the most-extreme kinds of] psychological abuse [occurs] when a pedophile tells a child victim that [he or] she caused the pedophile to abuse [him or] her because [he or] she is a 'slut' who 'tempted' the pedophile. Psychological abuse often contains strong emotionally manipulative content designed to force the victim to comply with the abuser's wishes. It may be emotional abuse in this sense when it is designed to cause emotional pain to victims or to “mess with their heads” in attempts to gain compliance and counter any resistance. Alternatively, psychological abuse may occur when one victim is forced to watch another be abused in some fashion (verbally, emotionally, physically or sexually). Like verbal abuse, psychological abuse is often not recognized as abuse early on and can result in serious sequela (psychological after effects) later on.


You'd be foolish to think that I won't call you out on it or take other actions of admonishment regarding you, and I have even reported threats of violence on Twitter to both Twitter and the authorities. Imagine, then, what actions of admonishment I'd take offline if I'm willing to report threats that are seemingly small because they are online—for example, I'd threaten to sue you if I had to do so, whether I'd get a pro-bono lawyer or ask the court to make you pay legal costs and any necessary damage payments. By the way, ask a few people whom I had to threaten with legal action for their clear violation of the ADA—once I threatened the action and reaffirmed my threat, they suddenly decided to make the accommodation which they needed to make.

In conclusion, I remind you that "forgive and forget" means "forgive and don't begrudge"—not "forgive and pretend that it never happened".



Besides What "Momma" Mentioned Re Naming Reilly Before...

"Momma" wanted a cat.

"No..."

"Momma" then wanted a Golden (really, a Labrador) Retriever named "Bernie".

"No...a small dog..."

Then "Momma" wanted a French bulldog.

"No...". "Mom-Mom" wanted "Momma" to get a mixed-breed dog.

Momma still wanted a boy dog named "Bernie".

"No...a girl dog..."

After researching and considering breeds, "Momma" decided on a Maltipoo; and "Momma" and "Mom-Mom" reached an agreement on naming the puppy "Reilly Rosalita" for a friend's recently-deceased "Reilly" and Rosalita McCoy Reilly, and Rosa's daughter Alice Reilly Allen.

The rest is history—as "Momma" wrote down thanks to one particular person and other people whom inspired "Momma" to write about Reilly and other subjects.

Beginning To Work On That Book About Reilly



Even the fact that "Momma" had to search for that post on Reilly's page is troubling—why couldn't "Momma" remember, "Reilly Rosalita: A Lovable & Quite-Often-Beleaguering 'Dogter' To Her Loving-And-Beleaguered 'Momma'"? No question as to why she forgot exists: mental-illness flareups and other issues have worn her out—and they've worn out Reilly.

By the way, as Reilly and "Momma" head upstairs to go "night nights":
  1. Happy Two-Year-and-Seventh-Month Birthday, Reilly!
  2. If you want to read—if you will—an except, read one of the entries that will relate to naming Reilly versus naming any of Reilly's human "siblings".
  3. When the book is finished and published, let "Momma" know if you want a copy—hopefully, the main person and other people whom inspired "Momma" to write about Reilly will want copies.
  4. "Momma" hopes that the book may shed light on and raise awareness of how pets and pet owners deal with difficulties in the owners' lives—after all, Reilly has been a reason that "Momma" is still alive and not gone in the way that Reilly's would've-been-112 "Great-Great-Granddad" went.

An Issue That's Been On My Mind: How 400-430 Years Could In A Parallel Way In Post-Ancient And Post-Medieval History

I didn't say "exactly 400-430 years". Nonetheless, I've concluded that that 400-430 years again applied to Jews from the time of the Alhambra Decreewhen a disgusting practice of throwing Jews whom paid ship captains overboard happenedto either the time of the Dreyfus Affair—which began with his May 1892 arrest—or May 6, 1922, when strokes incapacitated Lenin and effected that Stalin would become Lenin's successor. At those points, Jews knew that making aliyah would be a wise action:

"13 And He said unto Abram: 'Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; 14 and also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge; and afterward shall they come out with great substance. 15 But thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age. 16 And in the fourth generation they shall come back hither; for the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet full.'"


This time, the Moseses were Herzl and the B'nei Akiva branch of HaPoel HaMizrachi—which was founded in Yisra'el 22 days after Lenin's stroke. Granted that both events occurred in Iyar instead of Nisan in the respective years, and that the Alhambra Decree happened in Adar II of 5251—right before Rosh HaShanah 5252. Still, right in the middle of Adar—the month in which Hadasah saved Persian Jewry from Haman, whom made a decree of ethnocidal murder in Nisan—and Iyar—in which Yisra'el was refounded—is Nisan:

"And the LORD spoke unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying: 2 'This month shall be unto you the beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you[']."

By the way, a generation is 20 years, though generations and lifespans were usually longer back then (cf. the passage from Exodus 6 below. The 120-year life expectancy that was declared in the time of the Flood, by the way, began when Moses died.):

"And the LORD spoke unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tent of meeting, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying: 2 'Take ye the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, by their families, by their fathers' houses, according to the number of names, every male, by their polls; 3 from twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel: ye shall number them by their hosts, even thou and Aaron. 4 And with you there shall be a man of every tribe, every one head of his fathers' house.[']

Also, Iyar is the second month—again, when the Dreyfus Affair began and Lenin had his stroke—and Iyar was the time for Zionism to begin—after all, Adar and Nisan were the months that culminated the buildup to the Dreyfus Affair and the beginning of Stalinization. Remember, by the way, that the 12 sons of Ya'akov and others had to pass away before slavery in Egypt began:


"1 Now these are the names of the sons of Israel, who came into Egypt with Jacob; every man came with his household: 2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah; 3 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin; 4Dan and Naphtali, Gad and Asher. 5 And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls; and Joseph was in Egypt already. 6 And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation. 7 And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them. {P}"
"These are the families of Simeon. 16 And these are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations: Gershon and Kohath, and Merari. And the years of the life of Levi were a hundred thirty and seven years. 17 The sons of Gershon: Libni and Shimei, according to their families. 18 And the sons of Kohath: Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and Uzziel. And the years of the life of Kohath were a hundred thirty and three years. 19 And the sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of the Levites according to their generations. 20 And Amram took him Jochebed his father's sister to wife; and she bore him Aaron and Moses. And the years of the life of Amram were a hundred and thirty and seven years. 21 And the sons of Izhar: Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri. 22 And the sons of Uzziel: Mishael, and Elzaphan, and Sithri. 23 And Aaron took him Elisheba, the daughter of Amminadab, the sister of Nahshon, to wife; and she bore him Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. 24 And the sons of Korah: Assir, and Elkanah, and Abiasaph; these are the families of the Korahites. 25 And Eleazar Aaron's son took him one of the daughters of Putiel to wife; and she bore him Phinehas. These are the heads of the fathers' houses of the Levites according to their families.
So, a generation's life expectancy by that point—at least among HaB'nei Levi—was 137 years. So, go for 120*4 and 137 * 4, and you get 480 and 548 years. The average is 514 years, and enough below 514 years had passed between 1492-1892 and 1492-1922. Also consider this: the max life expectancy for those whom the Spirit is with (cf. Genesis 6:3) will someday be 100 years, and is pretty much the max life expectancy that by now—which is why centenarians and those whom are older than centenarians are celebrated and make the news:


"19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people; and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. 20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man, that hath not filled his days; for the youngest shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner being a hundred years old shall be accursed 
We can see here that the sinner will die at 100 years and that the redeemed will go on to live past 100 years. By the way, 25 is close enough to 20; and that's when the brain reaches its full-development point. So, generations in terms of biology could really be argued to begin at 25 at max and 20 at minimum.

If you don't believe me, look at both Tanakh and at these Google searches, and peruse the sources that you find:


  1. 10:42 AM
    www.google.com
  2. 10:42 AM
    www.google.com

As I concluded, then, 400-430 years on a literal level and on parallel levels have applied to Sephardi, Ashkenazi, Mizrahi, and other Jews to this day.


Somewhat Offbeat: The One-Year Birthday Girl & More About Naming

The sister of a certain Camille just turned one years old on October 20th, meaning that she's a "bark mitzvah"! At least in Gregorian terms, she's a "bark mitzvah"—since one human year for Maltipoos equals 15 dog years—and she was an actual "bark mitzvah" in between 9-10 months—11.3-12.5 years, though one could count whatever's between 10-11 months for 12.5-13.8 years.






Like her cousin and her sister, Shelby tends to not like the camera when she is tired.


As for naming (though, by the way and as far as I know, Shelby won't get a Hebrew name), I'd already talked naming any human sibling that Reilly ever has. I will now talk about what I'd never name pets:


  1. "Donald", unless the "Donald" or "Donnie" or "Don" in question is not named for Donald Trump or similar Donalds. ("Bannon", "Kellyanne", and "Katrina" are no-go names in certain cases, too.)
  2. Any person whom is known or thought to not want a pet named for him or her
  3. Decedents whose names aren't worth carrying on. 
  4. As in Case 1, a name of any living person whose name is not worth continuing in either his/her lifetime or lifetimes after that
  5. Crude names (no matter how funny some of them might be)
  6. Other mean names—e.g., a cat that a neighbor bought was originally named "Lump Of Coal", as in "I guess it's better than a lump of coal." "Lump" or "Lumpy" might be mean as well, though "Coal" would be okay for a black cat or any other black pet (as a neighborhood couple named of their pets)
  7. Charged names—e.g., "Dixie", which someone wanted to name his or her pet until that idea was kiboshed
  8. Derogatory names—as charged names are bad enough
In other words, use common sense when you name a pet!

I Thought That "Lugenpresse!" Is German...And Is Italian-Style Anti Semitism In Tandem As Trumpism Rises?



Meanwhile, for valid reasons, one side of my Lehr family "were not allowed to speak German" during World War Two—per a cousin in Baltimore. The same went for an off-color joke that my grandmother—whom we call "Mom-Mom"—made, whether she knew or didn't know that she is Jewish—and Pop-Pop Pundt, one of Dora Lehr Pundt's grandsons, understandably chased her with a belt around the kitchen when she jokingly called Granduncle Jack (of blessed memory) "just like Hitler".

Also, incidentally, some of the DeBoys were indeed Jews—as a DeBoy cousin told me when I asked, and I'm pretty sure that Catherine Peltz DeBoy was one of them (Rosina Braun DeBoy may've been one, too, though I can't be sure.). By our time, the majority of DeBoys ended up in Germany—though we liked to pretend that it was Alsace-Lorraine (which our branch left in about 1630—perhaps we were far from thrilled that Anti Semitism was creeping into every echelon of German society, including Prussian society, at the same time that the Haskalah was occurring)—and, as my cousin explained, some DeBoys did marry Jews—and perhaps that's why Nana Pundt slapped Mom-Mom on the face during this exchange (not to mention that she was Roman Catholic at the time, though the DeBoys had actually been Lutheran for quite a while at that point—even her father's uncle for whom her father was a namesake was Lutheran. I'm not exactly sure where being Catholic reentered for the DeBoys—maybe Catherine Peltz was a Jewish Catholic.).

While I grant that I was not even born until well after this exchange, I understand that Jewish-Italian relations have often been as fraught as Irish-Italian relations. Besides, the Romans breached our walls, later tried to make Vatican Hill the New Zion, and exalted one of their bishops as basically the New Kohen HaGadol.

"If you date an Italian, I will disown you."

"What about the Pope? He's Italian."

*slap across the face* 

(By the way, she of course did not mean that she would date the Pope.)


Besides, the first good Pope in a long time—with few exceptions here and there, if any real exceptions—was John Paul II, a Matrilineal Jew with a Polish father. Also, a good Pope was actually Cardinal Ratzinger, whom is actually Jewish and whom actually resisted the Nazis. (Being a bat-Anusim, I understand the danger of identifying as Jewish once you find out and/or decide to reveal that you are Jewish. Incidentally, Marie Curie—for another example—may've been Jewish. Too bad that many Italians envied and/or otherwise hated that, and their hatred of us only led them to persecute us and deprive themselves of many of the blessings that have been brought into the world through us.).

As for when you trace back to days from the Reformation to the Renaissance, you will find that the German and other Anti Semites—including that, for a lack of more-polite terminology, piece-of-crap Pseudo Reformer known as Martin Luther—had Roman Catholicism—not Evangelical Roman Catholicism—as their worldview (not that Eastern Roman Catholicism—aka, "Byzantine Catholicism"—was better—in fact, Constantinople was in the Eastern Roman-turned-Byzantine Empire).

My point being, "Lugenpresse!" is rooted in the Ancient Anti Semitism that has its roots in German Paganism and Pseudo Christianity along with Normative—not Evangelical—Roman Catholicism. One can see, then, why Luther-inspired Nazism and Roman-inspired Anti Semitism interweave to form Trumpism.

Pro Tip: Don't Post Bigotry On Which You Don't Want To Be Called Out

Two examples of Anti-Semitic bigotry this week include those from Bill Roper—whose WriterBeat post was shared on LinkedIn in the name of freedom of speech—and Felicity Jane Lowde—whom had the complete chutzpah to confront me on my Facebook page over my RT of @ElderofZiyon's response to her tweet. 

By the way, another pro tip: never use your full name on Facebook. Giving your full name like that could be extremely dangerous—after all, even Jessica Leeds, who gave out only her first and last names, received horrid attacks and threats because of Lou Dobbs' criminal tweeting of her personal information—even if you're a horrid Anti Semite or another kind of horrid bigot, you don't need to give the extremists any fodder. For instance, saying that "Israel was bombing little children"—as foolish as you are for accusing the IDF of infantocide and paedocide—will incur the dangerous wrath of Kahanists whom don't know to leave well enough alone—Meir Kahane was a violent extremist, and quite a few of his followers continue to incite and/or attempt violence against those with whom they disagree.

Bigotry on all sides—whether Kahanist or Anti Semitic, or other kinds of bigotry—is dangerous; posting bigotry on which you don't want to be called out is not a good idea, and bigots and other hateful people on all sides can and will use any information that they find on others—including other bigotsto harm them—as aforementioned, Lou Dobbs harmed Jessica Leeds by using only her name to find and share information on her.

Somewhat Offbeat: "Momma" Will Name Any Human "Siblings" Of Reilly That She Has (God Willing) Like She Named Reilly

As "Momma" has written:

"Reilly is a Patrilineal Maltese (Patrilinealtese?) and a Matrilineal MaltiJew (and you can definitely see what I did there in terms of the talking about the Matrilineal Poo[dle]), whereas Camille is a Patrilineal Maltipoo and a Matrilineal Toy Poodle. Thus, she's a MaltiJew on her dad's side. Meanwhile, Reilly's "Momma" identifies more with her Jewish heritage (and Reilly was even named in a shiyum shel haminhag Ashkenazi), whereas Camille's "Mimi" identifies with her more-remote French heritage (Incidentally, at the reunion, I found that the DeBoys are of Jewish heritage, anyway—not to mention that "Mimi" inadvertently named Camille Dominique after Great-Great-Granddad's paternal grandmother!)"
Of course, this far from rules out shivum shel minhag HaSefardim—after all, for example, Reilly's "Great-Great-Grandaunt" Agnes took the name "Mary Rosalita" when she became a nun (and when Reilly's "Great-Three-Times-Grandma" was still alive) and...wow; pause here—Reilly's "Great-Three-Times-Grandma" Rosalita "Rose [or "Rosa"]" may have been Sephardic after all, as her first two siblings were "John Henry" (which was their father's English name—since his dad was born in Lisboa, and he was likely an Anusi) and MaryAnn (which was their mother's name), and Sephardim will name their children after parents.

Here's are some example names that "Momma" would use:


  1. "Alexandria Alice" or "Alice Alexandria" after another "Great-Three-Times-Grandma" of Reilly, whom had Sephardic heritage & named one of her own daughters "Alexandria Alice". She also had a grandchild named "Alexandria Rose", presumably for her and for her daughter Celia's alive-at-the-time in-law mother (So, here, Ashkenazi and Sephardi custom likely played a role.).
  2. "Xavier Joseph" after quite a few people: Reilly's "Great-Granddaddy" Francis Xavier "X." Allen (with "Xavier" being carried on as a middle name for one of his sons, two of his grandsons, etc.); one of the people whom inspired "Momma" to write about Reilly, one of her uncles with that middle name, Reilly's "Great-Four-Times-Grandfather" Joseph Andrulewicz (although his namesake "Susi" was, from what "Momma" heard, was a real somebody), and other relatives and friends
  3. "Rosalita Reilly" or "Reilly Rosalita" (though, in all seriousness, to name a child after a puppy, even a beloved puppy—whether or not the puppy is still living, might be highly insulting)


"Momma" Gets Acute Reillyitis When...

Reilly barks like a banshee or even a klipeh. Even this morning (and as "Momma" types), Reilly has been barking ceaselessly—and her friend which is known as the spray bottle was utilized multiple times—not to mention that Camille was sprayed, too.

Of course, working-from-home-today "Mom-Mom" was of no helphad she rolled over Reilly and asked "Who rules?" like a friend of "Grandaunt Frannie" taught "Momma" while they were visiting her, Reilly would've stopped barking. As "Momma" has written:


"This is also another reminder of why "Momma" needs a "Daddy" for Reilly as both "Momma" and "Reilly" get older—besides, an as-possible-as-able man would be able to have authority over Reilly than 5'1.75"-and-afflicted-with-CP-and-Scoliosis "Momma". Granted that, for example, the main person who inspired "Momma" to write about Reilly got frustrated when "Momma" once complained about her state in her life—as he understandably viewed "Momma"'s complaining as being a pity-party schtick, as most other people view it because they don't get how hard it is for "Momma"."


Seriously, the sooner that God sends "Momma" a helpmate and Reilly a "Daddy", the better.

Like Heck If "Momma" Knows How Reilly Got Fleas, And "Momma"'s Impatience (Or Something) With God

Imagine that Reilly and Camille come up to greet you every morning. Then imagine the following sequence of events from today:


  1. "Mom-Mom" tells you to hurry up and "Auntie Michelle"—the greeters' sender—that she wants Reilly off your bed.
  2. You find out that Reilly has fleas—and you ask, "Are you serious?"
  3. "Mom-Mom" yells at you and blames you for the fleas "BECAUSE OF THE FILTH IN YOUR ROOM!"
  4. You later find out that "Mom-Mom" saw only two fleas on Reilly, and the fleas weren't even on or in Reilly's skin.
  5. "Mom-Mom" won't answer your question as to how Reilly could've gotten fleas, and tells you to not tell anybody that Reilly might have fleas. The case later turns out to be that Reilly had only those two fleas; she perhaps could've gotten them from another dog (though "Mom-Mom" wouldn't answer the question about whether that's a possibility), and "Mom-Mom" was worried about flea eggs in your room & on Reilly.
  6. "Mom-Mom" was able to spray down the room, etc. with anti-flea spray and get any flea eggs off of Reilly. Meanwhile, she earlier dismissed that your room isn't as clean as you'd—let alone she'd—like it to be because of your Cerebral Palsy (e.g., lack of physical strength), Depression (e.g., a lack of enough energy), ADD, and OCD/Anxiety (e.g., afraid of throwing something valuable away—and as "Momma" told "Mom-Mom", "[what "Momma" has up there is] not all trash").
Then people wonder why "Momma" can't be as patient with God about having a "Daddy" for Reilly as Camille and Reilly can be with "Auntie Nicole"/"Momma" in general.

Camille's Very Patient With "Auntie Nicole", Too

Just as much as Reilly as a "dogter" has been affected by "Momma"'s difficult times, Camille as a furniece has been affected. Nonetheless, Reilly and Camille still somehow love "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole". In fact, for example, Camille was napping across from "Auntie Nicole"'s feet the other day:





By the way, pets can teach people a few lessons. For example, one lesson is that you should tell someone that you love him or her—whether in familial, romantic, or other ways—if and when you can—after all, for instance, maybe Reilly's "Great-Great-Granddad" Czarnecki would've made it to 112 (on October 24th) had he felt more loved in his life (and hurt people do hurt people, as he hurt others during his lifetime. Incidentally, do Hillary and insidious RINO Trump want to ban cars, bridges, and lessons on how to jump while they advocate banning guns? After all, Reilly's "great-great-granddad" committed suicide by blocking traffic on Falls River Bridge and jumping off of the bridge 52 years ago on December 2, 2016).

For another example, pets can save lives of especially those with physical and mental disabilities—including mental illnesses. In fact, Reilly and Camille are honestly among the reasons that "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" has not tried suicide—for instance, what would happen to Reilly if "Momma" did succeed in a suicide attempt; and would Reilly even remember "Momma" if "Mom-Mom" gave Reilly to a shelter? What if "Momma" didn't succeed, on the other hand; and what if she ended up in a horrid condition like Reilly's "Grandaunt" Mary did? Besides, what if things do get better for "Momma" and maybe, for instance, Reilly will soon have a "Daddy"?

Nonetheless, "Momma" does think about how she and Reilly are getting older, anyway . Speaking of getting older, by the way, Reilly's cousin turns one years old tomorrow (Happy Birthday, Shelby!)—and Shelby is a bright spot in any day that Reilly's "Momma" gets to visit her, as well as a bright spot in any day that Reilly and Camille get to see and/or sniff her (not like Donald Trump sniffs, though. Incidentally, "Momma" wonders how Reilly would react to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton if she ever met them.).




Reilly As An Example Of How A Pet Owner's Mental Illnesses Affect His Or Her Pets

The difficult time that "Momma" has endured is affecting Reilly (Poor baby!), too. As one can see, Reilly looks tired and worried for "Momma".

"Momma" added these two pictures because Reilly was patiently waiting for her to wrap up last night (11:01 PM EST)

Still A Difficult Time For Reilly—And "Momma"

Reilly continues to be very patient as "Momma" endures a difficult time, and "Momma" nonetheless suspects that some of Reilly's compulsive behaviors are due to her. For example, Reilly seems to clean her paws frequently—just like "Momma" washes her hands frequently, since she has OCD/Anxiety—and perhaps even Reilly's eating of mulch is part of her compulsive behavior.

"Momma" can't even finish one project that might get her foot in the door, let alone work on the book about Reilly which she's planning. As she's written:


"Especially as "Momma" has gone through heartbreaks such as losing touch with the main person whom inspired her to write about Reilly, Reilly has been "Momma"'s biggest fan—or at least her biggest canine fanwhile "Momma" can't always be her biggest fan."
She's also written:

"[T]hat person inspired her to begin becoming a full-time author. In fact, as 'Momma' recalls, she wrote and sent Reilly's first real full biography to the particular person—whom she thinks about every day, and about whom she's told Reilly...
"Incidentally, 'Momma" hopes and prays to reconnect with that person—whom had and still has a huge impact on 'Momma''s life, and whom will hopefully meet Reilly—someday."

To not have the main person whom inspired "Momma" to write about Reilly—and become an author overallin her life for now only serves to partly flare up her mental illnesses—she even had two OCD/Anxiety episodes this morning, which confused and worried Reilly.

Needlessly to say, Reilly is definitely impacted as "Momma" struggles with mental-illness flareups—which also has affected "Momma"'s and Reilly's sleep at night, and "Momma"'s getting through the day.

This Happened While "Momma" Was Looking At The Golden Moon Tonight...







Someone saw "Momma" outside and started barking—and "Momma" realized that "Reilly" was upstairs with "Mom-Mom" instead of in the family room! So, "Momma" took some pictures—and she had to turn off the flash for the last four pictures, and she had to use the "Autoadjust" feature in Windows Photo Gallery for them.

Bath Day And Post-Bath Photoshoot For Reilly

















As one can see, "Auntie Michelle" had to help "Momma" get a photo of Reilly. By the way, the video was taken before the most-recent photo.

As for a photoshoot with Camille...yeah, no—or maybe later. According to "Mom-Mom", "Mimi", and even the witnessing-the-post-bath-brushing-scene "Auntie Nicole", Camille was splishing and splashing, biting, scratching, flopping around to resist getting brushed and trimmed after her bath, and drying off on the chair and couch covers as soon as she could do so—and she ran away from "Mom-Mom" when "Mom-Mom" came toward the chair on which Cam was drying herself—how ironic that a 75%-25% Poodle-Maltese mix hates being in water, let alone getting baths, as much as Cam does!

Incidentally, I assume that ever teaching Cam to swim—let alone in a beach-like lake such as Harvey's Lake—may be out of the equation—besides, "Mimi" would have to teach her to swim, and who knows if she'd ever like take her on a human-family-heritage tour up in Pennsylvania?

Somewhat Offbeat & Since Puppies Are Family Members, Too...

Maybe If "Momma" Can Take Reilly On A Trip To Pennsylvania Someday...
  1. "Momma" might try to make aliyah with Reilly from Philadelphia (God willing), since there are relatives there and an airport there.
  2. "Momma" has many sites that she wants to visit before she, God willing, makes aliyah with Reilly—among them are the port through which Great-Great-Grandma Gaydos came, Harvey's Lake (where the Rusnak Family reunions are held, just to get Reilly to learn to swim and recall what was good about those reunions), 207 Freed Street (which probably looks a good deal like it did when Great-Granddad and his family lived in 203-207 Freed Street; and Holy Family Cemetery in Sugar Notch (If "Momma" can, she'll have the bodies of relatives exhumed from there, and from wherever else she can, and reburied in Israel.). "Momma" also wants to take Reilly to some of those sites.
  3. "Momma" wants Reilly to meet relatives, friends, and other loved ones and associates thereof in Pennsylvania.
Besides, Reilly is "Momma"'s dogter. So, why can't Reilly know about the history of her human family? If only Reilly had a "Daddy" to get her and "Momma" up there, meanwhile!

Yesterday, Reilly begrudgingly looked at the camera here and waited for a walk. Besides, she's got to get bored of "Momma" being one of the few human family members around once in a while.

A Habit That Reilly Has Taken Up & Whether Reilly Is Actually A Dog 😉

Last night, "Momma" mentioned how stubborn-headed Reilly sometimes won't move without a belly rub or at all when she goes "night nights"—even last night, the stubbornhead decided to not to put her head back on the pillow without a belly rub. Incidentally, "Momma" ought to take a picture of Reilly resting her head on the pillow one time.

Meanwhile, "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" wonders whether Reilly and Camille are actually adult puppies (dogs) or sheep, goats, alpacas, or llamas 😉—they really do snack like sheep, goats, alpacas, or llamas, though!

Camille ate a "nasty", as "Auntie Nicole" could tell.

"I'll Go Potty, But Not Without A Belly Rub" And Related Incidents

That's how "Auntie Michelle" described the message that Reilly sent when she rolled over when "Auntie Michelle" asked her if she needed to "go potty". At least, according to "Auntie Michelle", "[my] sweetness doll finally listened and 'went potty'" when "Auntie Michelle" took Reilly "potty"—long after she should have taken her, which is the kind of **** that causes "Momma" snap & lose her **** at least from time to time, albe that it gives "Momma" time to write blog entries about Reilly.

(Nonetheless, being taken advantage of due to having a disability, whether intentionally or unintentionally on the part of "Auntie Michelle", is far from fun and a cause of why "Momma" often gets to bed late—waiting for Auntie Michelle to take Reilly "potty" and being in the middle of a blog entry when "Auntie Michelle" and "Reilly" come back inside often causes "Momma" to have to make Reilly wait to go back upstairs.).

Meanwhile, Reilly will do the same to "Momma"—that is, stubbornly not move unless she gets a belly rub—and sometimes refuse to move at all, regardless of whether she gets a belly rub—this is particularly not fun for "Momma" when, for example, she has to adjust her blankets at the foot of her bed to keep her perpetually-cold right foot warm or run to the restroom due to an IBS flareup (and incidentally, Reilly still barks like a banshee—or klipeh—quite often). "Momma", then, either persists and get stubborn Reilly to move, tries to get around Reilly if she can (since Reilly has taken up the habit of sharing a pillow with "Momma" and makes "Momma"'s getting out of bed and to the restroom on time hard when she won't move) or decides to fight the IBS flareups or sleep with a cold foot for Reilly's sake.


Here, Reilly is begging for Camille to play with her, although "Momma" thought that she was begging for a belly rub!



By the way, "Momma" is whom has encouraged Reilly to share her pillow—"Come on, Reilly. Move up."; "Reilly; put your head on the pillow."; "Reisy, do you want some more of the pillow?"—and having Reilly sleep beside "Momma" makes breathing for "Momma" a lot easier, especially when Reilly is not laying on the blankets and causing the blankets to weigh down on "Momma", whose colon (due to her IBS) is already weighing down on her diaphragm quite a bit of the time when she lays down (which is actually, as she's read, quite common in people which IBS).

"Momma", "Momma" should mention, has explained IBS flareups to Reilly with phrases such as "My bladder and my colon are acting funny." She's also explained IBS in more detail, though she's explained it per how puppies can understand it.

The day before, Camille laid near Reilly as "Auntie Nicole" was laying down for a nap. IBS is sadly part of what's kept "Auntie Nicole" from getting a job, although she at least gets to watch Camille (and Reilly) during the day and nap when she can (since IBS, comorbidly with Depression and other issues, affects her sleep; and Reilly has been affected by that.).
