 Even though this is day 170 for me being home during COVID19 birthday celebrations must and should go on. Today is seven years since Audrey and Roberta came to live at Casa Lobo. They experienced different house mates over the years starting with Madison the Grumpy Cat and Benny the dog. Then came Jack the one-eyed dog, then Pete the cat and now of course, Mr Pepe the dog. They have gotten along with all and have brought great joy into my house. Here’s to many more years of fun with these two cats. They have their own facebook page with over 900 fans.

Today is a big day in NYC. The 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots is being celebrated with a larger than ever parade down Fifth Avenue. It is going to be loud and proud. Today’s salute features photos from previous Pride parades as seen from my small perch at Casa Lobo. So much progress has been made but more needs to be done. Have fun and be safe. The top photo is One-eyed Jack from last years festivities. That little guy crossed over the rainbow bridge last November. Miss him every day.

One-eyed Jack – In Memorium December 22, 2018

It is with a heavy, broken heart that I tell you One-eyed Jack crossed the Rainbow Bridge this week. His health had taken a downward spiral in the past few months and it was time. I rescued Jack as a senior dog from Best Friends about two and a half years ago. He brought so much joy to my life. He was friendly with everyone. He loved kids, other dogs, street vendors, my apartment building staff and neighbors. Not a walk went by that someone did not come up to us to chat. Many New Yorkers would yell out ‘WISHBONE’ when they saw us (you might have to google that one). New Yorkers have a soft spot in their hearts for dogs, especially adorable one-eyed dogs. The one flaw he had was his insistence upon rising before daylight. We would traipse out into the dark of night and almost had the city to ourselves. Jack also adored my two cats, Audrey and Roberta and they adored him. I created a facebook page for them and we garnered close to 500 fans most who did not know me, but fell in love with Audrey, Roberta and One-eyed Jack. The house seems a lot emptier now and it will take awhile for a new normal to emerge. I have already been asked if I am going to get another dog. It is too soon to even contemplate that right now but if I do – I will adopt another senior dog as they need homes, aren’t nearly as cute as puppies but it is the right thing to do. Thank you all for caring about One-eyed Jack. It means a lot to me.

I have been recuperating from shoulder replacement surgery these past few weeks with the help of some amazing friends and family. The biggest restriction I have is not being able to walk One-eyed Jack the dog. My good friend and zoocation buddy, Mary Schwalm helped out for the first 10 days. While dog walking, cat sitting, cooking, shopping and general nursing she managed to create a fun video about her ‘walks with Jack.’ Volume up and enjoy!

It is hard to believe that it is one year since Jack the Dog  came to live with us at Casa Lobo. Other than his waking up time (which is 4:41AM) he is a perfect dog. He is sweet, friendly and gets along with other dogs, kids, neighbors and strangers. Two out of my three cats adore him. The elder cat essentially does not like anyone so it would be more surprising if she liked him. He is featured with some of the many friends who came to meet him this year. Enjoy our Jack-iversary.
