#WoofWednesday: More Of "Momma"'/"Auntie Nicole"'s Lifesavers

Meanwhile, Reilly's apparent equivalent of hadibrot harishonah v'shlishit (as she jealously sat on "Mom-Mom"'s lap):

"You shall have no other dogs before me, for I, Reilly the dog, am a jealous dog, visiting the slights of others upon the fur children of those whom provoke me to jealously, but showing affection to thousands, those whom love me and give in to my demands for scritches and belly rubs."


(PS 10 pictures for all of the 10 Dibrot! "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" did not expect that!)












PS "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" removed the videos, forgetting that they included private jokes until now.

Somewhat To Mostly Offbeat: "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" Means When She Says That...

Reilly and Camille are a main reason why she is alive right now—and, to the chagrin of many, she has said this before. She wonders what would happen to especially Reilly if something ever happened to her, and something almost did happen to her before she got Reilly—she overslept to the point at which she could have died due to starvation due to oversleeping because of a Depression flareup had the flareup become worse than it already had been.

As she's also mentioned before, she missed much of Reilly's first year because of her Depression flareup—not to mention "Auntie Michelle"'s Depression-exacerbating insistence that her apparent "experience" was more important than her reading, talking to pet owners in the neighborhood, &c.. Luckily, Reilly did—as all pre-adult puppies do—need 16-20 hours of sleep per day, and at least "Auntie Michelle" would bring up Reilly to see her in the mornings—so, she got to spend more time with her than she would and could have spent otherwise.Nonetheless, she swore to take a hands-off approach and not help  Miss "Experience" at all once Camille came home, since Miss "Experience" insisted that she knew better than her. She ended up capitulating, anyway, and became a helpful-enough "Auntie Nicole".

She also tried becoming a better "Momma". Then in January of 2016, she began to experience a really-rough time that has gone on in an up-and-down way for more than two years now—and an event that relates to that happened in May and really affected confusion in her that is still affecting her to have draining Depression, OCD/Anxiety, ADD, and other flareups that affect her to too often be—among other things—a bad "Momma" to patient-anyway-though-quite-often-understandably-frustrated Reilly. Meanwhile, Reilly has often reminded her to stay alive when she has reached really-low points and entertained not-so-good thoughts. She also has taught her patience while, for example, she awaits a certain answer for both of their sakes.

So people can keep feeling chagrin when "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" states that she would be dead right now were Reilly and Camille in her life, even though—as has been observed by at least a few people—facts never base themselves on anyone's feelings—including feelings of chagrin.

Somewhat To Mostly Offbeat: One Thing That Can Really Frustrate "Momma" Is That....

She has to whittle more-complex matters down to simple explanations that don't begin to cover the matters. For example:


  1. "I'm not as strong as Mom-Mom and Auntie Michelle" doesn't begin to fully explain Cerebral Palsy.
  2. "My bladder and my colon are acting funny" doesn't begin to explain IBS flareups.
  3. Even "I'm having an OCD flareup" doesn't explain OCD/Anxiety, which "Momma" has tried to explain to Reilly as best as one can explain OCD/Anxiety to puppies of any age.
  4. "Some people are just not very nice" doesn't exactly help differentiate between, for example, ableists and the the kind of people that may put up yet another barrier between "Momma" and "Momma"'s and Reilly's actual and potential friends—including everybody whom reads about and would want to about Reilly.
That can make being the best-possible "Momma" to Reilly much harder than it already is—how can "Momma" be a good "Momma" when she can't explain why the world is "a very-bad world"? "Momma"'s not always a good "Momma" as is, anyway!

PS Reilly was understandably mad when someone woke her up to take a picture before they went "night nights" here.

Somewhat Offbeat: Something That "Momma" and Reilly Still Do Every Day

They persist in praying for whomever "Momma"'s helpmate and Reilly's "Daddy" is, and praying for an answer from a certain someone. Reilly has been quite patient about that, might "Momma" add, despite that she still makes when her patience is stretched to the limit from time to time. Truth be told, Reilly's running downstairs one night probably had to do with impatience in part (notwithstanding that night-owl "Momma" went to bed quite early that night) and even her knowledge that "['Momma'] isn't as strong or as fast as Mom-Mom and Auntie Michelle" (which she has explained to Reilly multiple times, and of which Reilly gladly takes advantage—albe in a toddler-like way as opposed to a malicious way).

This isn't to mention that Reilly's been patient with "Momma" and praying with her about it for about two years now.

Very-Belated #ThrowbackThursday: Throwback To...Thursday At Roughly 3:15-4:11 At Night!

Let's just that "Momma" was very unhappy with:


  1. Reilly running downstairs when "Momma" explicitly told her to stay while she had to "go potty".
  2. "Mom-Mom" blaming her instead of disobedient Reilly for that, and even despite "Momma" warning "Mom-Mom" that Reilly might have to "go potty" during the night because she inexplicably drank quite an amount of water even for her to drink before "night-nights" time—and Reilly normally doesn't drink as much water as she should in the first place!
  3. Reilly running downstairs when "Momma" explicitly told her to stay while she had to "go potty" a third time, despite that she actually did stay the second time that "Momma" had to go.
  4. The about-one-hour refusal of Reilly to go back upstairs, let alone let "Momma" get her harness and leash on her to do so because she wouldn't do so without it—she even would play go-to-the-hallway-gate-then-run-away games!
  5. "Mom-Mom" once again blaming her instead of disobedient Reilly for that, and also getting mad at her for not taking Reilly "potty"...at about 4:11 at night, when "Momma" has Cerebral Palsy and is (as she's explained to Reilly) "not as strong as 'Mom-Mom' and 'Auntie Michelle'"), and Reilly didn't "go potty" the first time that she ran downstairs and "Mom-Mom" took her to "go potty"!
  6. "Zeh hayah 'erev v'zeh hayah boker" meant that day for "Momma" that she was very sleepy in the boker quite due in part to the about-one-hour chase that occurred during the 'erev.
  7. That Reilly now has to wear her harness and leash for a while every time that "Momma" has to "go potty", and with the leash loop put around one of the bedposts so that she doesn't run downstairs when "Momma" opens the bedroom door!

#ToyTuesday (Toys-day? In Any Case, Reilly And Camille Are Spoiled)




Subsequently, Camille aggressively guarded the toys when Reilly wasn't even near her (Yikes!)

"Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" Can Relate....

To A Twitter Video...Again!...


Now "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" grants that Reilly (although she did growl at one of her own stuffed-toy sort-of Doppelgangers once) has never done the following to Camille, though Reilly has (if one will) "dominated" Camille several times, done dominance shows that don't involve "dominating", blocked Camille from getting scritches, and—among other things—made Camille afraid to approach others to get scritches lest Reilly "Hell hath no fury like a jealous Reilly" Rosalita Czarnecki either "dominates", does dominance shows directed at, or blocks her.

Reilly even once tried to bite a friend out of jealously of Camille and of the friend's puppies! This isn't to even mention that she's developed a reputation among other puppies, including a notorious Doberman whom's equally a jealous type and even runs around in circles when he or she hears Reilly's name!

Mostly Offbeat: Something That "Momma" Still Wants To Know, Definitely Partly For Reilly's Sake (And Reilly Would Probably Want To Know)

Who in the Rosedale-Nottingham area keeps checking her blog entries particular about Reilly. Relative? Friend? An inquiring mind wants to know, and she wants to know what the Rosedalean-Nottinghamer thinks of the entries (as feedback is always appreciated)—even if he or she thinks that (forgive the ableist language here) Reilly's "Momma" is a nut and a trainwreck—besides, Reilly probably thinks that her "Momma" is those things half of the time, anyway! 

She should also mention that her curiosity comes mainly from another curiosity of hers: viz., is the Rosedalean-Nottinghamer in fact the same person whom she thinks could end up being her helpmate and Reilly's "Daddy" as opposed to a completely-different person? After all, knowing that would, for example, certainly help "Momma" be a better "Momma" to Reilly and get at least part of an answer for which she's been waiting for her and Reilly's sakes (and having a "Momma" with Cerebral Palsy can be quite hard enough for Reilly, not to mention be hard for a "Momma" whom'd be more of a "Momma" to Reilly if she were strong enough and/or had more help to be one!). 


She has no intention of embarrassing anybody here, by the way. PS If you're the person in question, please let her know. Also, God willing, maybe you could end up meeting (or remeeting) Reilly someday. 

#NationalHaikuDay: An Extended Haiku About Reilly (Or As "Auntie Michelle" Says, A Rei-ku!)

Reilly can be bratty
Albe very lovable
Even when she eats
"Nasties" and gets in trouble
In many more ways
Than her "Momma" can ever
Track, and she behaves
Badly though she knows better!
Nonetheless, Reiser
Is always her "Momma"'s good
"Gwril", firstborn "dogter", 
Better puppy than she could
Have asked Yehovah
To make to be her fur kid
A kalvah tovah¹
Become habat shela² did!

#FluffyFriday: Somewhat Offbeat: Why Reilly Deserved Some Peanut Butter Last Night

Again, Reilly was incredibly patient with "Momma" and even laid beside her for a while as she was wrapping up last night—and for some reason (a certain reason¹, as far as "Momma" can tell and as she again explained to Reilly last night), "Momma" keeps failing Reilly even though she promises to be a better "Momma" (Besides, once "Momma"'s night-owl and OCD/Anxiety-, ADD-, and Depression-affected mind gets going at night, it gets going at night and "Momma" suddenly decides to look up a lot of things while—for example—she's waiting for a certain answer for her and Reilly's sakes). Thus, "Momma" gave Reilly the peanut butter that she promised her—and Reilly of course very much enjoyed having a spoonful of peanut better.

¹ P.D. Una nota incidental a una cierta persona: Como ¨Mamᨠdijo, "[ella] y 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."

Three Moments Of Sanity Or Shalom Or Something

Only just a few minutes ago did "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" fully grasp that the following were moments of reminders of sanity¹, shalom, or something:




  1. In the first two pictures, Reilly is content just to lay by "Momma" and try to receive belly rubs from "Momma" and "Mom-Mom" (whom was off work). The pictures were taken after the shooting after the NSA Shooting occurred,
  2. In the last three pictures, Camille is being her cute self and kind of trying to avoid when "Auntie Nicole" is taking a picture. Nonetheless, Camille doesn't mind that "Auntie Nicole" gave her "Bucky", her favorite of toy of late, with which to pose. These were taken as the fallout of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting unfolded and was being covered in the news cycle, and they were taken quite a bit after Reilly and Camille were perhaps consoling a whom-they-could-sense-was-distressed "Momma/Auntie Nicole" as they gave kisses, asked for belly rubs, etc.
  3. The following video shows Camille "Klutzmille" Dominique Czarnecki going on a ball-playing spree which confuses her cousin Reilly, and it was recorded shortly after midnight in the EST Time Zone:

These pictures and videos, not to mention the moments which they captured, also helped remind "Momma" of how loving and sweet her "dogter" was last night, as "Momma" once again had a lot on her mind. Of course, they also help remind "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" of two of her top reasons for living in this world anymore, as she honestly doesn't know if she could make it if she didn't have a "dogter" and a furniece to love and for whom to care as much as she can².


¹Though as "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" knows, one can't really call moments that simply involve evil and not mental illness "moments of insanity".
² And not having someone to love, let alone an answer from a certain someone whom could be her someone to love, and help her be a "Momma" to Reilly is making her "die a little...everyday".

When Reilly and Camille Can Tell That Others Are Treating "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" Poorly

Without going into details, "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" will say that she's seen when Reilly and Camille have sensed that others are treating her poorly. She might've mentioned before that Reilly's sensed that, though she's not sure if she's mentioned that Camille can sense that. Nonetheless, it's worth (re)mentioning about Reilly and worth mentioning about Camille because of how recently it's happened.

Even tonight, for example, Camille ran away from someone whom was not being nice to "Auntie Nicole" when the someone in question wanted to give scritches to Camille after the situation that occurred devolved. As for Reilly, she's given "Momma" kisses when she's sensed that "Momma"'s not been treated well and has even had some hopeless thinking as a result.

PS On a more-cheerful note, here are two memories for #TimeTravelTuesday and for #MemoryMonday west of the EST Time Zone:


  1. From exactly a year ago today (in Gregorian terms)
  2. From a year ago on this coming Thursday

Belated #FunnyFriday Post: Maybe Camille Should've Been Named "Snappy"!

When Reilly was annoying Camille and not listening to "Mom-Mom", Camille took the matter into her own hands. Actually, she took the matter into her own paws. In fact, she literally took the matter into her own teeth—she growled and snapped at Reilly! She even had her "Auntie Nicole" being a bad "Momma" to Reilly and laughing about it—"Momma" definitely saw another example of Reilly's having met her match in that cousin of hers!

Of course, "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" did console Reilly all while she made clear that she understood why Camille snapped and nonetheless needed to apologize to her and give her kisses. Camille did not feel like apologizing, nonetheless, and did not—as "Auntie Nicole" recalls—stay around "Auntie Nicole" and Reilly too long after that—she knew that she was in trouble!

As a result, "Auntie Nicole" quipped that Camille definitely could've been named "Snappy" after tonight when what Camille could've been named!

Ameri-canine DJ Camille & The U.S. Government Shutdown At La Casa De Reilly Rosalita

Some creatures, mostly of the human variety, have "cribs", "pads", "man-caves" or ("Auntie Nicole" supposes) "woman-caves", "dens", and other various colloquially-described residences. Camille has a house which she shares with a twice-removed cousin, a "Mimi", an "Auntie Nicole", and a "Mom-Mom"; and her turntables tend to be chairs, couches, carpets, mats, beds, blankets, and any other soft surface that she can use.

As the government shutdown continues, meanwhile, Camille is obliviously chilling with her "Mimi".

As for Reilly, she is also obliviously chilling and waiting for "Momma" to take her upstairs so that they can go "night nights". "Momma", thus, is wrapping up for the night and nonetheless thinking about how a government shutdown is exacerbating her mental-illness flareup—another one which was brought on partly by not having a clear answer re a certain matter, and which has kept her up late into the night and affected Reilly.

As the saying goes, chai, zeh chai—life is life—and Camille maybe could provide some of her canine "music" for any movie that would be made about her and Reilly or her and "Mimi"/"Auntie Michelle", "Auntie Nicole"/"Momma" and Reilly, or whomever else.

Tonight's Livestream With A Recurring Guest And Reilly In Canine ("In Person")


Now Reilly Had Her Turn At Being A Pawpupshka, And a Surprise


Reilly cooperated for a "dentastick" (what "Momma" generically calls Reilly's dental-stick treats).






And the little surprise....
