Sundays With Sir Poops-A-Lot: Hair Ball Says That’s Not Fair


Hair Ball

It’s not fair pansy-boy is getting better stuff than me. It’s not fair! It’s not fair! He’s getting all kinds of special things. Mummsy carries him everywhere in the house. He’s even got a special place on the sofa now and I’m not allowed to head butt him off anymore.      111029_004

It’s not fair he gets a special water bottle on his house door.


He even gets his breakfast served to him in bed.


He even wears something called a diaper now. I want to wear one. It’s so not fair.


It’s not fair he’s getting all this special attention. I want to be carried all around the house. I want a special spot on the sofa. I want my food delivered to my bed. What’s the deal?


SPAL: Actually stupid, it’s rather humiliating to wear a diaper. I’ll be glad to share. As for all this special attention, it’s nice up until I do my poops and pees into the diaper-thing. Mummsy now puts me in the Great White Watery Abyss of Torture twice a day now. She says she doesn’t want me to smell like a toilet.

HB: But it’s still not fair!

SPAL: Nope. Life’s not fair. Get used to it kid. I never thought I’d end up like this. I’m totally dependent on mummsy right now.

HB: I want to be sick! I want to be sick! We could be sick together.

SPAL: ***shakes his head*** Being sick isn’t what it’s all cracked up to be, but it is nice being treated like royalty. I’ll be glad when I don’t have to wear diapers anymore. I hope the neurologist will be able to fix my legs.

HB: Me, too. Then I can head butt you off the sofa again.


  1. So, what's the verdict...? What happened to the little guy?

    SPAL-Glad you're on the mend. These blogs wouldn't be anymore if you weren't around.

    HB-I've seen a lot of sick fur-people (and real people too)...and it's no fun to be sick. Trust wouldn't want it...even if SPAL is getting more attention than you. Don't forget to be nice to your brother...he needs you right now.

  2. @Beth: For now, the diagnosis is nerve damage and I'm to take him to a doggie neurologist. I'll know more after that visit. But for now, he's paralyzed in his left front paw and hind legs. Also, the doc gave us prednisone for him which takes away his pain.

  3. I hope he gets better soon. I didn't know there were doggie neurologists.

  4. SPAL, you've been on my mind (and Duke's). We hope you're on the mend very soon.
    Please keep us updated!

  5. I better not let my cat see this or he's going to be wanting breakfast in bed, too.

  6. Sounds like Poopsie got a stroke or something. I'm glad he's getting first class care. Be strong Mummsy, be strong!

  7. We don't give them what's fair, but what they need.


  8. Awwww. Poopsy I hope you feel better soon and don't have to go poo in a diaper soon. )^;

  9. @Tonja: I didn't know either. I hate to see how much that's going to cost.

    @Laura: Thank you. We're hoping it's temporary and that he won't need surgery.

    @Don: LOL! They do get spoiled easily.

    @Eve: I'm trying.

    @Joyce: Very true.

    @Lorelei: He treally doesn't like to poo in the diaper. He whines and I take him out into the garage to poo. I take of the diaper. But he'll pee in it.

  10. Hair Ball sounds like a kid trying to get out of going to school...or a kid who's jealous of his sibling getting most of the attention....

    Hope the canine neurologist can help SPAL. Keep us posted, please.

  11. @Norma: The first 24 hours Hair Ball was concerned, giving Sir Poops kisses and sniffs. Now he's jealous. Really.

    I will definitely keep you posted. I'm hoping to get him in by Thursday. Work has me on 6 days this week.

  12. I'm so happy that SPAL is okay. HB needs to take it easy with SPAL... I think he's feeling a little neglected, a classic case of sibling rivalry. LOL.

  13. MISH: I can't tell you how relieved I am. And yes, Hair Ball is terribly jealous that's for sure.

  14. Oh poor baby. Give him anything he wants. How old is the pooper now? My poochies are going on 12 and I worry about them every day. Nerve damage..who would have thought it? I hope he gets well soon. :>

  15. Ah, what a special relationship you two have. SPAL, Hairball loves you even tho he's jealous.

  16. I hope the neurologist is able to help SPAL!

  17. @Laila: Sir Poops is eleven.

    @DM: They do have a special relationship. They just don't want me and Sweetman to know.

    @Golden Eaglee: Me, too.

  18. Poor puppy! Hope he gets better soon. You nailed that sibling rivalry thing though...

  19. @Vivki: It changed our lives overnight that's for sure.

  20. Hairball, play nice with your brother! SPAL's having a rough time of it.

    Keep us posted on the poor little guy....

  21. I know what you mean!!! I wanna be pampered! Aw, but I hope he feels better - it sucks to be sick.

    By the way - I awarded you the Versatile Blogger award! :)

  22. @Donna: Thanks for stopping by.

    @Sir Wills: But you don't understand. Hair Ball.

    @Nicole: But how come you get pampered when you're sick? Hair Ball


Let me know what you think.
