The (Maybe-Not-So-Much) Anticipated(?) Part Of the Promised Post: How Reilly Resembles "Momma"

One time, "Momma" had been looking at pictures of a family member, and an infamous one at that. Still, "Momma" couldn't help but crack up when Reilly (at least as "Momma" saw after she'd just looked at the pictures) resembled the family member. To be fair, puppies do end up resembling their owners overtime, and the infamous family member bears (or, at least when he was younger, bore) resemblance to Reilly's "Pop-Pop" and "Great-Granddad" (and that's how "Momma", incidentally and as she's mentioned elsewhere, figured out that "Danilovich" was not just a patronymic in that relative's case).

In Reilly's case, then, whether resembling "Momma" physically's good is a subjective call. Meanwhile, here's at least some of how else Reilly resembles "Momma" (or at least "Momma" thinks, and barring factors such as "Momma"'s OCD/Anxiety):


  1. She knows what she wants and why she wants it when she wants it.
  2. She's loyal and jealous.
  3. She's stubborn and Type A in many ways.
  4. She can actually put up with quite a bit, although she's not always the most-patient type!
  5. She's a foodie!
  6. She has her breaking points and doesn't always react well when she reaches them!
  7. She's empathetic (As for "Momma". she tries to be an empath!).
  8. She can be defensive, whether rightly or wrongly!
However, she as an extrovert does balance out her introverted "Momma"; and she also balances out introverted Camille.

Last Quick-Break-In-The-Promised-Post Cycle, Part Four

When Reilly barks to greet someone, she barks to greet someone—and she barks quite exuberantly (and only Camille might beat out Reilly in exuberance when "Mimi"/"Auntie Michelle" and "Mom-Mom" come home from work, and when Camille and Reilly see Shelby!). Even something as simple as a doorbell may be all that it takes for her to bark—for example, Reilly even barked when "Auntie Michelle" rang the doorbell accidentally on Friday as she headed out the door for work—Reilly uses that doorbell as a cue to be ready to say "Hi" to someone, even when the someone is "Auntie Michelle" ringing the doorbell accidentally.

Reilly also barks generally without caring about who's at the door—even a pizza-delivery person can get Reilly to bark, stick her nose through the hallway gate, and wag her tail. She also does her begging motion if she particularly wants to see the person whom's at the door, and she definitely has no problem blocking Camille from any attention and/or jumping exuberantly on someone to say "Hi", give kisses, beg for scritches, etc.. She even has her special barks—e.g., ones that mean "Hi, [given special person]! Where were you?", "Hi, Mom-Mom! I want to walk now that you're home!", and "I want to talk [or play, etc.]."—and she's even taken to certain strangers to her and acquaintances of hers moreso than other strangers and acquaintance.

Of course and as "Momma" has said before, Reilly sometimes barks too —though it's sometimes hard to tell with her slightly-angle-shaped tail—she has people, fellow puppies of hers, and others whom she does not like—although it's even sometimes hard to tell when her tail's definitely to the left. Additionally
Now, if only Reilly had someone (especially if "Momma"'s thinking is correct) for her like other puppies have someones for them (and as "Momma" said, Reilly greets people incredibly exuberantly!).

Last Quick-Break-In-The-Promised-Post Cycle, Part Three

After just yesterday with getting a scratch from Reilly when she tried to roll her over, getting pulled by Camille to the point of almost falling (and having to tell both Reilly and Camille constantly "No pull"), etc., "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" came to the same old conclusion that she's discussed before: she could use a helpmate for herself and a "Daddy" for Reilly. What else is there to say? As she even said about this upcoming Father's Day:

"How Father's Day will be for "Momma" and Reilly is to be seen, especially since Reilly has never met her "Pop-Pop" ("Momma"'s dad) and she doesn't yet have a human "Daddy" of her own (let alone her possible "Daddy" in her life, and "Momma" could certainly use a helpmate to help her be able to help Reilly more)—all while Reilly will be 3.25 Gregorian years old on June 25th and"Momma" will be a month short of 27.5 Gregorian years old on June 23rd (Time passes!)."

It seems like a broken record, but so seem "Momma"'s life and (to at least some extent) Reilly's life at this point; and is having a helpmate for "Momma" and "Daddy" for Reilly too much to ask? (Apparently, it was even by Mother's Day 🙄.)

Last Quick-Break-In-The-Promised-Post Cycle, Part Two

Long story short (as far as "Momma" recalls, anyway, since a couple of days have passed since the incident): never cross Reilly in terms of beef-liver-jerky treats unless you want to risk being bitten, targeted for growling, etc.. Trying to steal Camille's chance at getting groomed with the electric toothbrush, Reilly jumped back up on "Mom-Mom"'s lap and would not take "No" for an answer. Finally, "Auntie Michelle" had to roll over Reilly, since even moving her away from Camille and "Mom-Mom" did not work.

"Where's the beef?" At that point, it was where Reilly couldn't get it—and her attempts at stealing Camille's treat ended up like Walter Mondale's campaign, which was a losing attempt, although Reilly certainly had no support of any human female equivalents. In that case, there would've been a special place in Hell for "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole", "Mom-Mom", and "Auntie Michelle"/"Mimi" had they not helped Camille (Granted that Madeline Albright wasn't speaking of canines like Reilly and Camille, though.).

Last Quick-Break-In-The-Promised-Post Cycle, Part One

On Wednesday, the last day of May 2017, the special anniversary that occurred was the third anniversary of a week since Reilly had been home:

On Saturday, meanwhile, the second anniversary of Camille's homecoming will occur.

Correction (June 10, 2017): Camille came home on June 6th—oh well; she still came home on a Saturday (Excuse "Auntie Nicole" for having an ADD-, etc.-addled brain and two years in between Cam's homecoming to remember!).

Preview Of the Last Quick-Break-In-The-Promised-Post Cycle


  1. A special anniversary happened yesterday, and another one will happen in nine days.
  2. Reilly was particularly mean to and aggressive toward Camille and "Auntie Michelle" last night—and all over treats.
  3. How Father's Day will be for "Momma" and Reilly is to be seen, especially since Reilly has never met her "Pop-Pop" ("Momma"'s dad) and she doesn't yet have a human "Daddy" of her own (let alone her possible "Daddy" in her life, and "Momma" could certainly use a helpmate to help her be able to help Reilly more)—all while Reilly will be 3.25 Gregorian years old on June 25th and"Momma" will be a month short of 27.5 Gregorian years old on June 23rd (Time passes!).
  4. Once again, barky and jealous Reilly has to have a nicer way of saying, "Hi!"

Quick Promised-Post-Cycle Break: "When Did This Biting Habit Start?" & Memorial Day

"Momma" thought that Reilly's biting of her hand was maybe her teeth nudging against it when she opened her mouth and nudged it on "Momma"'s hand to get her to resume petting her. Two bites and a still-hurting-albe-with-no-blood-or-significant-teeth-marks hand later, "Momma" realizes that Reilly has a "Keep giving me scritches!" biting habit—and "Momma" does have a triangle of three now-fading small teeth marks on her pinky. ("Reilly! when did this biting habit start?")

Meanwhile, a Memorial Day card is planned to be forthcoming. Also, even though Memorial Day is meant especially for MIA, KIA, and DOW¹ members of the United States Armed Forces², "Momma" and Reilly also observe Memorial Day in honor of active-duty U.S. Armed Forces personnel, and in honor and memory of reservist and veteran U.S. Armed Forces personnel³⁴—after all, all active-duty, reservist, and veterans in good standing³ have and died every day when they lay and laid their lives on the line, especially since they haven't and hadn't been guaranteed tomorrows.


¹ Died Of Wounds (Including United States Armed Forces members whom committed suicide or otherwise died to a mental-illness flareup due to post-service aftermaths
² Including reservists and veterans—since, e.g., many do go on multiple tours of duty
³ Including honorably-discharged and mistakenly- and maliciously-dishonorably-discharged veterans alike, including racistly-dishonorably-discharged World War Two veterans.
⁴ Including one of the people whom inspired "Momma" to write about Reilly, whom became an Air Force Member in the year before Vietnam ended.

As The Old Jewish Saying Goes, And As I've Lived Especially Of Late...

What's keeping calm when you're Jewish? What's not worrying when you're Jewish?

As for me and being a Jewish Christian, I get the whole "Do not worry", "Come to Me, you whom are weary...", "Cast your cares...", etc.. Notwithstanding that (and here goes the "Oh, you of little faith"):


  1. Having Cerebral Palsy and IBS affects worry for good reason.
  2. Having OCD/Anxiety and ADD affects worry for good reason. By the way, I'm actually not the first one to have made an observation regarding whether OCD/Anxiety is inherently Jewish, and I was joking about that more to cope with my own OCD and wondering (so much for Jewish humor, as I got a hard time for making that observation)—the schtick about (I kid you not) OCD being a "Jewish disease" (as Dr. Avigdor Bonchek phrased the schtick whether OCD is Jewish) has been around for a long time. To be fair, look at, e.g., B'midbar 7 alone—having to be perfectly scrupulous about the right number of the right offerings like that could cause anyone to worry—then look at Vaiykra 11 and B'midbar 19—I myself (assuming that I'd survived birth and even had some part in Jewish life) would be washing and extra washing all day. Then try the fences around Torah. Overtime, that has to get embedded into one's genetic code and/or brain chemistry—thus, I think, part of why God desires mercy over sacrifice and obedience over burnt offerings, as His point seemed to be that ritualism as opposed to simply living by faith (e.g., "walk[ing] humbly with your God").
  3. Getting the amount of hate that I get (as I probably will over the observation above, for example), whether rightly or wrongly, affects me to always worry for good reason—even, e.g., who's going to unfriend me on Facebook or unfollow me on Twitter, thus reflecting online how what they think of me both online and offline? After all (as Curt Schilling of all people stated), people online are who they are offline and what they would be offline "if they could get away with it" (which he stated after two of his daughter's high-school classmates used Twitter to send her rape threats.
I could give more examples, though I think that three examples suffice—especially as I brace myself and bide to see how many more instances of Example Three will happen even over the next couple of minutes, especially in regard to Example Two.

Yet, They Never Believe "Momma" Until "Momma" Persists In Getting Them To Pet Reilly

Granted that "Mom-Mom" worked from home today and was holding Reilly on her lap. Still, Reilly did exactly as "Momma" said that she would—she let the home-improvement contractors pet her and gave them kisses. Reilly also barks because she hates when people leave in fact, Reilly is gregarious to the point at which she licked the spaying team as she came out of the anesthesia!

By the way, if God wills and "Mom-Mom" allows, Reilly and "Momma" would love to have family, friends, and others—including whomever Reilly's "Daddy" is or might be—to come over and meet and/or visit with Reilly on Thanksgiving! Maybe there'll even be venison ðŸ˜‰!

In all seriousness, Reilly would love to meet and regreet people. As for Camille, even though she did let one other person pet her today, she usually misses only "Mom-Mom", her "Mimi", Shelby, and a pitbull mix in her neighborhood (in a platonic way, mind you; though as for Camille's "Auntie Nicole" quietly wonders if Cam's platonic song of lament would ever apply to her and and Reilly's "Daddy" in another way—"Momma" definitely gets verklempt and bazorgt about Reilly not having a "Daddy" and herself not having a helpmate around the holidays).

Meanwhile, Cam is becoming more than just Jewishly emotive—and she's always Jewishly emotive (despite that there's apparently no Yiddish word for "emoter"—and thus no farklenervort for "Auntie Nicole"'s "plimenitse"—although she does call her "puppeleh", semi Yinglish for "little puppy",).

"Momma" and Reilly Thank The Veterans, Both Active-Duty And Non-Active-Duty Veterans

Remember that "Momma" even originally wanted a male puppy and to name him after Pfc. Bernard Stanley Czarnecki, WW2, DOW (בנימין שמריה בן יהודה יוחנן ושרה אסנת צהרנצקי, ז''ל). As for Reilly, she is a "great-great-grandniece" to Pfc. Bernard S. Czarnecki, and:


  1. A "grandniece" of a retired Air Force Colonel
  2. A "grandniece" of an almost-Vietnam War vet ("almost" because the war ended just as he was called to duty)
  3. A "once-removed cousin" of two Marines (one of them being an in-law cousin) and two Army soldiers (with one being a First Lieutenant, MSC)
  4. The "dogter" of a friend of an Air Force veteran, whom she has yet to meet
  5. The "dogter" of a friend of a Marine's aunt, whom she's already met
  6. The "great-great-grandniece" of a late VFW Commander and ACE member whom served in the European Theater and countless other WW2 veterans, including Pfc. Czarnecki (See above.)
  7. Countless other veterans
Reilly with one of veteran "cousins"

Many of Reilly's "relatives" are from the only state outside of Maryland in which Reilly has been. So is one of "Momma"'s friends whom was in the Air Force.

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.

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.).

Offbeat: On One Person Whom Particularly Inspired "Momma" To Write About Reilly—And Whom Is Anonymous For Right Now

Out of the people whom inspired "Momma" to write about Reilly, one in particular will always stand out to "Momma" and have a special place in her heart—no matter what, since especially that 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.

When Reilly first came home, "Momma" wrote a biography on Reilly—though that biography was nothing like this biography:

Part One of A Short Biography Of My Puppy, Reilly Rosalita

I own a very-unique Maltipoo puppy—"Reilly Rosalita" by name, and "Reilly" by nickname (along with other nicknames). Born on March 25, 2014, Reilly was fittingly named after my Irish-American great-grandmother—she was, after all, born only a week and a day after a favorite holiday of my great-grandmother, Alice Allen nee Reilly. She was, meanwhile, given the first name of Nana Allen's mother—Rosalita "Rosa" Reilly—as her middle name.

With Reilly's unique name comes her unique personality—a sweet, firey, JIrish personality (with the "JIrish" part coming from her Jewish-Irish "Momma"—me—and perhaps from her "Momma"'s great-great-grandmother Rosalita, who may have been a Patrilineal Portuguese Jew. Incidentally, this reminds me that I jokingly call Reilly a "Malti-Jew" and a "Matrilineal Poo".).
As for Reilly's looks, they come very much from her sire—a four-year-old Maltese named "Oobie-Wone"—and from whomever Reilly's dame—six-year-old Apple—inherited her recessive genes, which she passed down to Reilly. Much of Reilly's personality also comes from "Oobie-Wone"—a quiet one—and Apple—a, as Reilly puts it, "reclusive", "sweet", "good mother". Oddly enough, by the way, Apple reminds me of, with her coloring and demeanor, Nana Allen (of whom I've seen pictures and about whom I've heard quite a bit) and Nana Reilly (from whom, as I understand, Nana Allen inherited her own looks and demeanor. Perhaps like Apple, as a canine, doesn't and does, Nana Reilly, as a person, "didn't like children, and she kept her girls to herself"—after all, Apple keeps to herself and keeps her offspring close to her).

0502151609a_0001.jpg







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.

Offbeat: On Some People Whom Inspired "Momma" To Write About Reilly

A few people encouraged "Momma" to go and stay on her track to become a full-time author. Here are some interesting facts about them:


  1. One has met Reilly, and the others have yet to meet her.
  2. At least two of them share Irish heritage with the brought-into-a-partly-Irish-family Reilly, and at least one shares Jewish heritage with Reilly's "Momma".
  3. At least one has in common with Reilly that he or she has an Irish name of non-Irish origins with Reilly (which came from the Scandinavian "gregarious")
  4. All of them have lived in Reilly's birth state—Maryland—and are from ancestral states of "Momma".
  5. Reilly would love to meet and remeet the ones whom she's not met or seen in a while—whether they have full, half, one-month, or other birthdays in September—Reilly loves to meet and remeet people.

Besides "Momma" (Whose Biggest Fan Reilly Seems To Be), Reilly's Biggest Fan Is....Whom?

Besides "Momma" as Reilly's biggest human fan—and besides, for the time being, "Mom-Mom" and then "Auntie Michelle" after "Momma"—and besides Camille as Reilly's biggest canine fan, who's Reilly's biggest fan—or who would be Reilly's biggest fan?

For what noting Reilly's undying devotion to "Momma" is worth, "Momma"'s two—or however many—cents are that Reilly's biggest fan is or would have to be whomever among humans would love "Momma" the most—that is, whomever Reilly's "Daddy" is or would be, whether or not "Momma"'s (good-as-any?) guess or idea is correct.

Anyone—or anyone except those like George Soros, Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump, and Hillary Clinton—could love Reilly—and Reilly could probably love even the Soros, Putins, Trumps, Clintons, and other most-indecent people. Loving "Momma", as Reilly as a "dogter" knows, would be a bit harder.

Meanwhile, wouldn't a gift or miracle be if Reilly's "Daddy" came into Reilly's life by her half-year birthday—September 25th—or at least by the end of September—despite that Reilly is far from good at reciprocating birthday wishes? While Reilly may not at first like having someone else in "Momma"'s life or her life at first, even Reilly thinks that she needs a "Daddy".

More Of the Best Friends Known As Reilly And Camille

Incidentally, "Momma" left the videos shaky on purpose to show what photographing and videographing with having Cerebral Palsy looks like*. Anyway, "Momma" couldn't leave the scene alone when she caught it—and she just had to photograph it. So, "Momma" took a picture of her "dogter" and "Mimi"'s "dogter"a Ying and Yang amongst canines.



















*Now, if only "Momma" had a "Daddy" for Reisy with whom to share these kinds of moments, let alone if she could tell Reisy who she thinks that he could be.

Tu B'Av & All Different Kinds Of Love, Including Puppy Love

In short, Tu B'Av is the Rabbinic Valentine's Day, which comes after Tisha B'Av (the fast of the fifth month, after Tzom HaChodesh Tammuz—not, as it formerly was, for the "god" [dybuk] Tammuz), and before Yom Kippur and Asara b'Tevet). The rabbis decided that after two months with fasts and before Yom Kippur, a yom l'simcha was needed—including for, I suppose, pets and their feeling-much-better-after-breaking-the-fast owners—of course, making pets fast would be wrong.

As on Valentine's Day, the theme on Tu B'Av is ahavah (love)—of which there are different kinds, with three words for the main kinds in Biblical Hebrew, including "ahavah". Puppies—including adult puppies (dogs) like Reilly and Camille—show ahavah, including for each other and for their masters—and masters' families!

Reilly and Camille, yesh lahen ahavah l'echad achar—after all, e.g., to clean out each other's ears takes ahavah rabah v'g'dolah.




So does playing as roughly as Reilly and Camille do! 












So does napping together and (and as demonstrated with close ups included) inadvertently forming a heart shape and sleeping side by side!
