Sunset and the Candy Dog

I know it’s Autumn, and that daylight savings will be coming into effect soon, but I really wish the earth would tilt normally and at least make it light out until maybe 7:30.  I won’t have anything to say to the sun (I’m looking at YOU, sun) if it would just make Canada light for an extra hour at night.  

Does anyone else feel like a slug right after Summer?  It’s like the entire side of the world slows down, and everyone goes into hiding until its Spring again.

When it’s dark out early and I’m inside I start to think too much.  Then I start thinking thoughts like, “Do veins just ‘end’ at the tips of my fingers, or do veins keep going in a circle?  If you say, had a tumor that you wanted cut off, but there was a nerve growing into the tumor, could they just lop the tumor off and sew up the nerve ending back inside your normal body?  Or would you wake up going insane from the nerve pain?  And if they brain helps trigger our movement, how do people do unconscious things like bite their nails and not even notice?”

Such is what I am currently pondering.

Do you ever look at your dog and think, “You are a little ANIMAL.  I have an animal just roaming around my house all day and night.  But you’re more than an animal, you’re like this weird in-between a human and animal.  And how great is it that we actually can understand each other and communicate?”  I get those thoughts every now and again. These creatures that I love that aren’t human are just wandering around all day, hangin, eating, pooping, playing, and sleeping.  I wish I could videotape them to see what they do all day.  Though they seem to get into more shenanigans when I just leave for a minute rather than the whole day.

A few days ago I was looking at Zedla as she laid down on the couch and we met eyes and then out of nowhere she produces part of an empty Kit Kat wrapper out of her mouth and just looks at me.  Shame on me for leaving my Halloween-sized Kit Kat wrapper on the coffee table.  It was ridiculous to see her do that.  It was like on 30 Rock when Kathy pulls a Matchbox car out of her mouth when Liz talks to her.

Just like, “Oh, here’s something for you to look at.  I like to keep candy bar wrappers in my mouth until just the right moment. See?  Here’s a Kit Kat wrapper.  Enjoy.”

    It sucks getting up in the pitch dark (6am) and getting to work and the sun is starting to come up. Soon it will be dark when I get to work and leave work! :p
    Gus does that, wander over with things stuck in his mouth. Qtips, wrappers, fur, fluff… its a pug thing. Indy used to get thing stuck in her lips, mostly fluff from a toy. 🙂
    And to answer your question, no veins start at you fingertips and go back to the heart, the arteries are the ones that go to your fingertips. 🙂
    I think they can just lop off the nerve but then you would lose all feeling in that part of your body, you would probably have pain with the tumor pressing or growing on the nerve. Lots of pain and drugs don’t really work on nerve pain, unless they knock you out. 🙂

    My pugs are constantly walking around with stuff stuck to their flappy little face flaps that pugs have. Fuzz, fluff, wrappers, paper towel bits, who knows what. It’s crazy. And it is weird. Very alien.

    But especially so for us because pugs have SUCH expressive eyes.

    One: You need to lay off the peace pipe! Just kidding

    Veins go in one direction, toward the heart. Arteries go away from the heart. Veins are closer to the skin, arteries are deeper. Arteries also break down into arterioles and then into capillaries, to bring oxygenated blood to the tips of your fingers, and then venules basically go by these and pick up any waste and CO2 and then they become larger veins which carries this to the heart which pumps the CO2 to the lungs and we exhale it, and it pumps the waste to our kidneys/liver and it gets excreted as pee/poop.

    Probably way more than you actually needed to know.

    “Do you ever look at your dog and think, “You are a little ANIMAL. I have an animal just roaming around my house all day and night. ””

    That is so true! I have thought about this many times! It is so weird that we have these little creatures in our homes that sleep in our beds, etc.
