Aurora: Pua is taking half my cocktail. Well okay but that's your birthday present from me then.

Pua: Every time I go in the washer Aurora comes out. Every time I go to the closet nest Aurora goes back to the washer.

Aurora: Can't you take a hint?

Aurora: I was headed back to the washer when my tail got stuck in the window shelf. I couldn't get down or back up. The servant saved me but I sat crying about it till I got some buttermilk.

I woke at 5:30 crying, and crying. Mom tried giving me a fresh blanket. We didn't like the current one but that wasn't the problem. Mom tried giving me some cheesy chia seeds but no treats wont fix this. It's too horrible.

Mom tried cuddles. No. Mom was stumped I went into the fresh closet nest and kept crying. Aurora began running around in a panic due to my crying and mom messing around and Aurora's panic made me cry more.

Mom came up to the closet nest to cuddle me. I looked down surprised the closet monster hadn't eaten her. Mom said I just had a bad dream. I didn't believe her. I went to the food shelf and looked down and cried more. Mom rubbed my butt and sang to me that helped a little bit.
Mom got some coconut powder. "No I told you treats wont.... Wait that's coconut" I chowed down. I cried more after. Aurora got tired of me and went into the washer. Mom tried ignoring me too but I cried really loud. Mom sang to me and that helped some.

Finally mom gave me some more coconut powder but laced it with melatonin to help me calm down. I went back to the nest and cried for a bit more but then settled and went to sleep.
That was a very upsetting half hour.

(Mom's note: Crying inconsolably for no reason now and then was something she was prone to before getting Aurora. I figured she was lonely for her own kind. I'm guessing a dream sparked this as she is prone to bad dreams now and then and one time even "sleep walked" by standing with her claws raised crying/screaming, took some poking from me to wake her, and then she was a bit confused.)

Thunk - Oh there's a gremlin under the bed today.

Also when mom came to test my blood sugar I made her stay awhile so I could hug till I fell asleep.


So these were actually last months videos. But I was going by upload date but I was behind when I uploaded them. I may or may not fix this later but for now, here they are.














There is one plus to being an old dog with poor hearing. The fireworks no longer send you to cower in the closet or under the bed. Though humans may wake you with cameras.
Beaker is luckily unphased even when someone set of firecrackers or a bit bigger near us when walking him. (Hyzzie stayed home 'cuz she just didn't wanna go.)

July 5th
 I mostly sleep in the closet nest since it's closer to the AC. Hyzzie doggy has her cooling jacket for walks. She even took mom one day when it was 100 but she's getting tired of it now. Mom had to lock Aurora in one day when she was running around in the heat a lot 'cuz mom couldn't take it any more. Mostly we anteaters stay inside where it's cooler.

You forgot to remove Aurora's cocktail bowl again but you can't have it now. I'm using it for an arm rest. Go find something else to Put her morning cocktail in.

Aurora: Lets compromise. I'll just sleep halfway under the shed.

Aurora: I get a lot more soup for myself when I ask for it during the day like this.

Aurora's secret is out. She will eat my semi solid food, if she's desperate. Mom didn't put the soup out since Aurora wasn't getting up but then this morning she caught Aurora eating my food. Once Aurora heard the fridge open though she went running to her soup shelf.

No Aurora in the closet or in the washer but I got a fresh blanket in both nests now.

I keep waking up and finding Aurora is not there so I go to the next nest but she's not there either so I sleep then wake and go to the other nest to look for her.

Aurora: I came out from under the bed and had my cocktail, Pua stole some of it. Then I went out for a long evening stroll, came back and had some soup and am now playing with Pua in the closet nest.

Had a water bath in the sink. Now having my supplements.

Aurora: Crawled out form under the bed to have a morning cocktail then went out for a sunbath. It's kind of noisy in the neighborhood today though so I'm now back in the closet with Pua.

Nice day for a sunbath
Nice day for a sunbath



The sun makes Aurora sleepy

Aurora: I went back out. I laid down to have a sunbath by the shed instead only to have the servant bump into the shed and startle me. I told her off. It ruined the whole thing.
So I went to the front yard only to be scared by someone vacuuming a car. I bolted for the gate but once I was inside the gate I went back to a leisurely stroll. I don't think anyone saw me panic other than the servant and she doesn't count.

Then when I went to go inside Beaker was in the way. That's just so rude so I turned around and stayed out a bit longer. When I did come in I couldn't decide where to sleep but did have a snack.

I tried going back out but each time I got into the sun I realized it was actually hot out so turned back immediately. I have finally settled into the closet nest with Pua


Well my computer is getting mad at how big this blog is already so there will have to be a July pt 2
