365 Challenge: Day 176 – DogCare (RYDER RANT)

DogCare: shelter and care for a pet when you are away


It’s time for Ryder’s Rants. Just wanted to let you know that I’m away on vacation. Dads left for Louisiana to visit family and will be back for my 10th birthday. While they are away, they left me with Ella at Celebrity Pets. You can see more about her at:  https://www.celebritypetshotel.com/

Ella is amazing. For my birthday, she got me a present. And it was food. I love food. Here I am:image1 (1)


I would love birthday presents, but this year, I only want one thing. Please donate to all the pet rescue places for my poor lost friends in the Houston area. I told Dads not to get me anything as this would be the best present ever. I will see them when they get home tomorrow. Very excited. I am not even mad they went away without me since they told Ella it was my birthday and she got me this lovely little party dessert.

I’m also sleepy. And Dads are running around Louisiana visiting family, so Dad 1 doesn’t have a lot of time to help me with this post. He just called and told me they are building toys for a three-year old’s birthday party Grr… you know how I feel about children. But if it’s a birthday, I can’t be too upset, since it’s also mine, right?

I’m also very excited for Dad. He received back the first edits from his publisher, but he refuses to look at it until he returns to NY. I hope he’s happy. I don’t want to have to teach him a lesson about behaving himself. He can’t always get his way.

He also asked me to tell you he’s sorry for not responding to comments or reading everyone’s posts. He’s focusing on his priorities right now, which happens to be family for a few days. But he’ll be back and energized by late tomorrow night. His post tomorrow might be late too, although he asked me to start it. I said ‘no.’ I got priorities too. Some dogs around here who need to be taught their own little lessons.

Eh, time to go. More next week about a few pet-related things. The important thing is he left me with good dogcare. If you ever need someone to pet sit when in NYC, call Ella. She’s awesome. I’ll also have another Recommended Blogger for you later this week. No time to type about it right now, but coming up soon. Here’s a picture of what Dad just noticed on the road. He thought it was funny…



About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay and I live in NYC. By profession, I work in technology. By passion, I work in writing. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them.

  3. Ryder, good to hear from you again. I am pleased that the Dads have found a good place for you to stay while they are away and your Birthday was not forgotten. Bonus! And never mind about the 3 year old’s birthday. Humans are so hyped up about small humans birthdays. Don’t stress about it. And it is very nice of you to ask for help for your fellow canines in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. I know that in the horse world there has been a good amount of money raised to help horses so I know people will be helping dogs too and yes, cats. Well they are in need of help too. . Till next time Ryder take good care of your Dads.

  4. Happy Birthday Ryder. Doggie Care is a tough one. My baby is 15 and I was fortunate that my daughter lived at home until a year ago. Last year when I went to Florida, my son and his family took the dog for the four weeks I was gone. He did okay, even with their big mastiff, but I was so worried about him. I will be better this year.
