The Birth of PuppyDoc.

Once upon a time there existed a doc
who had a pet cat and listened to Bach.

This doc was described as, ‘fun, loyal, and lovey,’
therefore she eventually was dubbed the name Puppy.’

In general, this Puppy lived quite a blessed life,
but a life of high pressure and occasional strife.

She loved her profession and for this she was glad, 
but certain times events would make her feel sad.

She cared for her patients and strived to make them well, 
So when they declined, she’d be down with no one to tell. 

In a way, this describes how “Musings” was born–
Because poetry was, in a manner, her way to mourn.

But then little by little came some blogging buddies–
so dear and supportive– for this she felt lucky.

So all you should know that she treasures EACH one of you,
for when reading your blogs…why–she can never be blue! 

In short…this is how a doc who thinks she’s a dog
winds up creating…a poetry blog.

Ode to a Cat

Oh Saman.
You’re so round.
You just go ’round and ’round and ’round.

Aww Saman.
I like you.
Cause you’re just so fuzzy too.

Though others may giggle
when they see you wiggle,
my heart you kindle
cause you’re just so gentle.

So Saman,
you and me,
buddies for life we’ll be.

How I Wish I Were a Dog!

(by Samantha the Cat)

Oh, how I wish I were a dog!
A wonderfully peppy puppy dog.
Full of wisdom, stature, energy, true-
Full of wonder and curiosity, why, just like you!

Oh, how I wish I were a dog!
Carefree, whimsical, and happy with all.
I would run around, roll, and jump up high,
Fly in the air, fetch, oh gravity, I defy!

Oh, how I wish I were a dog!
Never without grace, my tongue hanging down.
I would grin all day, play, pant, and slobber,
Lick my human’s face? Of course, it’s no bother!

But alas, I was born to be merely a cat…
A simple, ordinary kitty cat.
But I adore my human, and she loves me,
So I guess it’s not too bad, wouldn’t you agree?

Samantha the Cat
My best impression of a dog with a tongue hanging out.

Yes. I am Silly Saman.

Hello!

I am Samantha. The cat! I know it may seem very strange hearing from me, especially on this blog, as I normally let my human do the writing while I carry out my ornamental role of being, quite simply and happily, the ‘affectionately rotund feline’ in PuppyDoc’s blog world.

But today will be different as I give PuppyDoc a break while I take the reins as well as the laptop and introduce to those who are interested a small peek into my life. I don’t think my human will mind.

As you know, my name is really Samantha. But my human likes to call me ‘Saman,’ not ‘Sam’ or ‘Sammy’, which I find kind of funny. Sometimes she even calls me ‘her little lemur,’ though I don’t see the resemblance at all…

Lemur  Samantha

I like my human a lot. She snuggles with me, cuddles with me, and sometimes, she’ll hold me straight up high in the air while going “WEEE!” I can see lots of things when she does that, like the top of her head, the funny bumpy ceiling, the occasional shriveled insect on top of the bookshelf…things I don’t normally get to see. It’s all very interesting.

I also like it when my human baby talks in Chinese to me. Why baby talk…and why in Chinese…I’m not really sure. But I don’t mind.

Now my goal each day is to make my human smile. One way I do this is through dramatic posturing. For example, something like this…

Samantha

or this…

Samantha

…anything to make her say “Aww…silly Saman!”…a statement that always makes me warm and fuzzy.

Oh dear… my human is calling for me. I better go.

Thank you so much for reading! I am humbled. I bet my human will be so proud when she finds out I can blog…just like her…

Happy Meeew Year!

Love,
Samantha

PuppyDoc + Samantha = Twins?

Hello! It’s Samantha…the Kitty!

Today, I feel super duper happy and warm and fuzzy all over. Why?? Well…because my big sis Puppydoc is letting me write the blog post! Me! While my blogging ability is nowhere near that of my fellow furball professionals (e.g. Sammy and Noodle), I will sure try my best!

Today I would like to take the opportunity to answer a very important question:

“Is it really true that Samantha and PuppyDoc are identical twins?”

While the unfortunate answer is a surprising NO– we are not of the same maternal oocyte… we DO indeed have many things in common…which leads me to…

7 Reasons Samantha and PuppyDoc are Like Twins:

1- Firstly, we are both a tad bit silly…hehe.
2- Secondly, we are both super cuddly…
3- …and we both like smooches and hugs.
4- We both speak our hearts in the way of poetry (don’t believe me? CLICK HERE!)
5- We both kind of like to think of ourselves as being of the macho canine breed. Woof!
6- We are both really sentimental.
7- Finally, while Puppydoc treats diseases, I have been told that my presence is VERY therapeutic. 😀

So see?? We ARE practically identical!
