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.

Tuna Fish & Blog Awards

Hi everyone! It’s me again…Samantha…yes…the cat!

But why am I flipped upside down all goofily, you might ask? Well, a couple of reasons:

  1. I found out today that some wonderful people have nominated this blog for some lovely things, and that makes me happy!
  2. I found out that my human trusts me enough to give me, such an ordinary kitty, the honor of writing the acceptance post for them, and that makes me even happier!
  3. I caught a 6-legged critter yesterday…and I played with it for a while (but please don’t tell my human I already broke my New Year’s promise…).

So without further delay, let me thank these nice humans first:

• 7 Random Fun Facts About PuppyDoc and SamanCat •

— I love Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. PuppyDoc likes them, but I go just nutty over them. I could stick my head in a bag and just fall asleep I get so happy!

— I came from the Humane Society. That’s where I met my human for the first time! On the other hand, PuppyDoc is not from the Humane Society.

— If I ride in a car, I must sit on my human’s lap, because I am really scared of Pet Taxis. We have accomplished several 12-hour road trips in this configuration.

— My human says I’m the gentlest kitty she has ever known, because I never hiss, bite, or scratch. My human often calls me a ‘gentle giant.’

— I secretly wish I were a doggie…sometimes I even think I am one!

— I had one litter of kittens before my human found me and gave me a new life. PuppyDoc has not had any litters.

— I love my human more than anything in the world! Even more than freshly opened canned tuna!

Our New Year Promises to You.

 

puppydoc

PuppyDoc’s list

In the new year, I will…

1. …try to help a homeless person in some way each day.
2. …h
ug more elderly patients.
3. …remind
each nurse I see that he/she is appreciated.
4. …f
all in love with medicine all over again,
5. …and hopefully i
nspire someone else to as well.

At the same time, I will try not to neglect my own well-being by…

6. …listening to my mom about eating more veggies,
7.
…not avoiding the dentist,
8. …realizing that a Clif Bar plus a Red Bull doesn’t constitute an ideal meal,

9. …and not refusing to go to the doctor… 

But seriously…

10. I only hope to make a small difference…one day at a time (…and live happily ever after with Samantha, of course).

 

 

Samantha

Samantha’s list

Upon the next moon, I shall…

1. …find more ways to earn treats…
2. …but at the same time lose 3 lbs.

3. …
stop stealing pepperoni off my human’s pizza,
4. …
stop stealing chicken wings off the kitchen counter,
5. …and
try not to take up the entire pillow when sleeping atop my human’s head at night.

Moreover, if I find a gecko, or any living creature smaller than me, I shall…

6. …not bite it,
7. …nor squish it,
8. …nor terrify it with my intimidating presence,
9. …but allow it to go on living its peaceful life.

But most importantly…

10. I will remain fluffy, loving, and sweet…and live happily ever after with my human.

 

 

 

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!

And now, I would like (with Puppydoc’s okay)
to nominate a few furry bloggers I admire:

Cupcake of Cupcake Speaks
Lexi of Lexi the Schnauzer

The Fine Print for the Nominees:

2-Copy the rules and add the blog award badge as an image
3-Share 7 facts about yourself to your fellow bloggers.
4-Then nominate 15 people (I of course didn’t do this much).

With Love, 

Samantha & Puppydoc
