לשבת שלום מראילי לכולם!

PS Reilly received pumpkin as a treat for letting "Momma" take photos of her in her tallit and with her wearing her kippah!

Reilly Isn't Taking Camille's Futzing Around, Even (Or Perhaps Especially) On a Weekend


  1. When Camille pawed Reilly in the head yesterday, Reilly growled at her.
  2. As for today, according to "Mimi"/"Auntie Michelle, "Camille tried to engage in a dominance show/play with Reilly, and Reilly was not having it and promptly—dare I say—clomped her nose and mouth as if to say, 'Excuse me—Who's alpha?!' and left it at that. Camille, to her credit, backed off and acknowledged Reilly as alpha. They both went inside after that like nothing happened."
In other words, Camille tested Reilly's boundaries and learned that messing with Reilly in the mornings and after walks—perhaps especially on weekends—are not good ideas. 

PS L'Chodesh Adar Tov—and if there's no Second Adar this year, Reilly's going to be four on March 12 or 13 this year on the Hebrew calendar!

Valentine's Day Card From Reilly

P.D. Una nota incidental a una cierta persona: ¨Mamᨠy Reily rezan por tí todos los días, y ellas piensen de tí todos los días...o al menos ¨Mamᨠpiense de tí todos los días; y Reily piense de tí cuando ella y ¨Mamᨠy Reily rezan por tí, y cuando ¨Mamᨠmenciona tí a ella.

I'm Not Exactly Happy To Have To Make The Following Request, As...

I don't want to come off as desperate. Nonetheless, the request is this: please look into at least buying one of my books, as that would be a real belated Hanukkah, current Christmas, and/or early birthday gift for me. I did the following for a reason, after all:


  1. Take the opportunity to publish at least one with Hadassa WordPress when Elena Djima unexpectedly reached out to me to offer that pleasantly-surprisingly opportunity, since I'd been a "Times Of Israel" blogger.
  2. Published books via Kindle Direct Publishing
  3. Used part of my SSI benefits to set up giveaways and Amazon ads for my books
  4. Begin working on new books on which I'm still working.
If you think that I'm thrilled that I still have to be on SSI benefits (which I actually even protested having to be on in the first place) and have God-sent opportunities seeming to go ultimately nowhere for me, you have got to be kidding me (and almost 11 years later, I still call my having to be on SSI benefits "socialist", and this is despite my Cerebral Palsy, mental illnesses, and IBS—and I was hoping that the opportunity to be an author to partly get me off of the SSI benefits would materialize more quickly, not to mention that I haven't had the royalty check from Amazon cashed yet partly because of having to deal with the Social Security office on that. Besides, slightly under $112 over eight months is paltry.).

By the way, I'm giving away another copy of one of my books and may begin working on another book soon. As I said, I'm serious about wanting to become a full-time author partly to get off of SSI benefits—and as I've said, not to ultimately end up in a menial job because all that I'm viewed as is my disabilities, thank you very much—and thank you for considering my request.

PS Happy Belated Hanukkah, Merry Chistmas, and Happy New Year.

Anecdote One: "Cam Always Look Guilty" According To Mom-Mom, Although...

She and Reilly were definitely "plotting" something on Wednesday night:

"Mom-Mom" saw Camille in the family room and observed, "Camille, you're looking might guilty."

Then "Auntie Michelle"/"Mimi" noted that Reilly and Camille were together. According to her, they were either cleaning each other or conspiring to get into puppy mischief. They could've also beem playing, though, she thought. Nonetheless, she had to ask them, "What are you plotting?"

Only Camille and Reilly to this day know what they were plotting, and only they will know if they can even remember—today is Monday, after all (not to mention Reilly's 3¾-year birthday in terms of Gregorian years! Happy month birthday for December and Merry Christmas, Reilly! Merry Christmas to you, too, Cam!)!

Preview Of the Next Post: A Few Anecdotes About Reilly and Camille


Two of the anecdotes can be summed up as follows:
  1. On Wednesday, "Auntie Michelle"/"Mimi" noted that Reilly and Camille were together and apparently plotting something ("What are you plotting?") after "Mom-Mom" saw Camille in the family room and observed, "Camille, you're looking might guilty."
  2. Reilly actually cooperated with getting her ear medicine during the most-recent time for her to get the ear medicine.
PS In case anyone missed these earlier:

Stubborn Camille Still Does Not Want To Play A Variation Of "Find The Treat [Or Toy] Under The Blankie"

Having been able to get some Christmas and Hanukkah gifts for Reilly and Camille, "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" was able to get a collapsible bowl which she forget is a bowl. She thought that it was a Frisbee, then she checked because she thought that she remembered that it might actually be a bowl. So came a variation of "Find The Treat [Or Toy] Under the Blankie" into her head when she tried to figure out what to do with it, since using it as a Frisbee would not be feasible.

Stubborn Camille still refuses to try to lift up the bowl with her paw or nose to get the treat or toy. Basically, she'll try for a few minutes then want "Auntie Nicole" to lift the bowl for her. She'll even get aggressive with Reilly despite that she knows that "Auntie Nicole" is Reilly's "Momma" and does want her dogter to be hurt. Even this morning, she gave Reilly an intimidating stare and puffed up her tail as well as put her tail to the right—she was quite happy to intimidate Reilly, notwithstanding "Auntie Nicole"/"Momma"'s warnings to be nice to Reilly—and notwithstanding that Reilly still has an ear infection and isn't feeling as well as she could, by the way.

Update On Reilly

As one may have been able to tell by some pictures alone, Reilly had a rough day on Friday with an ear infection and a Lyme's Disease vaccine booster. Today, per "Auntie Michelle", she was shaking because her leg was hurting due to the vaccine (and there can still be slight pain at the site with any vaccine after 24-48 hours; and her White Shaker Syndrome has been noted by the vet and is common for her breed, as the Maltipoo is a Maltese-Poodle hybreed¹.

(She also had some other stressors throughout the day.).

As for the ear infection, as "Momma" witnessed, it's healing despite that Reilly is not happy about getting medicine for it. Meanwhile, Camille had to be convinced that she was not going to be getting any medicine—"Auntie Nicole" had to explain that Camille had no reason to try to jump off of her lap and run because she didn't have an ear infection for which she needed medicine!

Nonetheless, Reilly is doing generally well despite the vaccine-site pain and the ear infection (and the other stressors of the day)—and despite that she was a bit sleepy.



¹Contraction of "hybrid" and "breed" (which "Momma" probably didn't coin, and she'd be surprised if she did coin it.)

Puppies That Could Be Magazine "Moodles" (Pun Intended)













Camille could help advertise a chair cover here,













'
If Reilly were feeling better (Poor Reilly has another ear infection. :-( ), she could help advertise either a pet bed, toy, or blanket.








Curious and sleepy Cam. 








Curious, sleepy, and cameraphobic Reilly (Reilly also had a Lyme's Disease vaccine booster that day.)




No food or treats; just a camera to take pictures of them :-)
