Middle Age

You know that you are a middle aged sad bastard
When your partner is Skype-nig his family during a Halloween family get together
And you are dabbing a bulldog's fanny with a piece of damp kitchen roll, just out of shot
Hey ho

  1. I would have thought that was not the criteria for being sad - strange, but not sad.

  2. The older you get, the odder things become and we start accepting them as the norm. You'll care less about that stuff when you are no longer middle aged and get down and dirty with "Old".

    Have a good night, John

  3. I don't think that qualifies you for the sad bastard title. You deserve the Great Dog Parent Award.

    Love,

  6. You are right John. I haven't had the benefit of being around oldsters, so I am having to learn by myself. If the young ones knew what was in store, well, I'm not sure.

  7. How long does this go on? I know you think it's silly but better she wears a diaper than that she messes everywhere and you have to wipe her. Amazon or your local petshop should have a lot of choices.

    PS THank you for the update on Baby Jesus a few posts back.

  8. A scary thought for Halloween, John - Middle age is a piece of cake. It gets worse.

  9. Ah-yah. So what? We do what we must.

  10. What, no dishcloth this time?!

    Middle age, old age - any age beats the alternative.

  11. John, why don't you just have Winnie spayed/fixed? Unless you plan to bred her - Just Do It.

    She'll be happier and so will YOU!

  12. You are compassionate, John. No wonder you are a nurse. Nurturing comes naturally to you. Thank goodness for people like you. We would all be better off with more like you (but I'm sure they broke the mold).

  13. I'd rather not think about all this. The worst I have to cope with is pulling blades of grass from Monty's backside.

  14. I think I am quite pleased to not have a fanny. They seem to require an awful lot of maintenance.

  15. I know I'm middle-aged because I was up at 5:30, reading blogs...

  16. From the amount of dabbing reported in these posts I now understand why that bulldog seems to love you so much.

  17. i think middle age is defined in many ways but that one never occurred to me

  18. When you live with animals, they are often your life. And who would wish it any other way?

  19. Not sad my dear, just the usual in your world and we love you for it. LOL I hope her, ahem, fanny is better.
