Spotlight Thursday – Meet Tribble

16 Nov

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!

Name:  Tribble

Age:  7  years

Location:  Colorado

Web/Blog Page:

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I’ve never known a time without my parents – they’ve were there when I was born and have been there ever since. When I first met them, I knew they were warm and now I also know they are sweet!

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  I was supposed to be given to one of Daddy’s friends, and I was preparing myself to leave. Then Mom intervened and insisted they give his friend my sister. She wanted to keep me, even though she had promised Daddy that they weren’t going to keep any of Garnet’s puppies. Pretty soon, I realized that all my siblings had gone, and I was still there. Mom was so happy! When she told me I was staying I was really happy; I just adore my dog-mom, Garnet. I didn’t want to go live with strangers. I was so excited to stay home with her!

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? I almost died one day, playing with Garnet in the back yard. Her tooth got caught in my collar and when she tried to get away, it pulled even tighter. I passed out. When I woke up, Mom was holding me to her chest, trying to get me to breath. It all worked out, and they took away our collars, but I was pretty scared I’d get in trouble. We were all okay, though, and I’ve been pretty good. Oh, except when I ate that dead bird and almost died from sepsis. They saved me with the help of some great veterinarians and lots of dough. I thought they’d be mad at me then, too, but they were so happy when I got home from the hospital that all was forgiven.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? Mom, of course (giggle). She’s such a softy. It’s a good thing that she loves me. Dad has finally gotten over the fact that they kept one of Garnet’s puppies, thank goodness.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  They still treat me like a kid! I’m a grown up, well, technically. But Garnet and I are always together, and since she’s in charge, that means I’m not. So, I understand that they still treat me like a little girl; I can take advantage of that, you know.

Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

    wow that was a dangerous adventure you had in the backyard…glad your mom was there to rescue you… and I agree for the dead berds… they mostly use the emergency exit to fly out of my stomach…

      Yeah, I seem to be the bad luck puppy in the pack, but now Mom calls me the Miracle dog! The dogtors had written me off and told them to tell me good bye. But Mom told me to hang in there, and i did. Mom says I have bad taste and to leave the dead creatures alone, but they smell so tantalizing. Now, I just bring them in the house and drop them in the kitchen. I’m a good girl now. Emergency exit? I wish that had worked.

      We’ve enjoyed meeting so many great people and furfriends!

    You are so adorable! I wouldn’t give you up either. We don’t do collars on our cats for that same reason. Our cats stay inside and are microchipped so they don’t need identification.

      This year, for the first time since “the incident” Mom makes us wear collars when we go camping, so that if we get lost someone can just call the number on the collar. We’re always relieved when we get home and can take them off. Collars can be dangerous; I’m sure your cats are happy to just travel with chips, not collars!

        I always thought if I had a dog, I’d get a gps collar that can track. Too many lost dog postings locally. My heart always hurts for lost pets. A few years back, a scruffy little pup came into my yard. Followed me around (I must smell like kibble!). He had a collar with a number and I called. He was from a few blocks away. The owner came right away. They hadn’t even realized he was missing. Happy ending.

        Luckily, Tribble and Garnet don’t play as rough anymore, so collars are an option if needed. The last time we looked at GPS units, they were too big for the Pet that needed it and crazy expensive. As prices go down – or if we were to allow our dogs to explore off-leash- we’d revisit the technology to see if it was better now. Our cat’s are the biggest concern, and they need a fairly small unit.

        Good point. When my old indoor/outdoor cat Jake was getting senile, I looked into it for him. They were so big and clunky. He had never worn a collar and I didn’t want to make his last years uncomfortable but there were times I would have liked to know exactly which bush he was under. 🙂

        Sometimes, I could use it just in the house! Those cat have great hiding abilities.

        At least in the house you don’t worry.

      • KDKH

        11/17/2017 at 11:39 am

        Normally, yes. Right now, I have a terminally ill cat who has taken to hiding. I can’t find him to give him his pain meds, and then I worry.

      • Kate Crimmins

        11/17/2017 at 2:03 pm

        I am so sorry. Sick cats like to hide. It’s what I worried about when Jake was old. That he’d go out to die.

      • KDKH

        11/17/2017 at 2:10 pm

        Me too. I was almost frantic last night looking for him. He finally came out and talked to me. He can’t take the pain medication any more because it chokes him (one of his tumors is in his neck). He can’t eat any more. He is withdrawn. I think he was asking for the final kindness. We’re going in later today, but I’m so sad….

      • Kate Crimmins

        11/17/2017 at 3:11 pm

        I am so sorry. So hard but it sounds like he is ready even if you aren’t.

        I agree.

      Mom says I make tribble-like sounds when I growl. So, they call me Tribble! Sometimes, my hair is just as long and fuzzy, but then it’s too hot. I like it when it’s a bit shorter. But Mom says I’m cuddly like a tribble, no matter how long my hair is.

    Hello Trimble, nice to meet you. You sure have been through a lot already.

    • KDKH

      11/16/2017 at 7:44 pm

      *hangs head* Mom says I’m a bit of a trouble-maker or just too adventurous. No wonder they never leave me in charge!

    I can only imagine how you got your name, Tribble. I noticed how your furs changed so much – even in color – since you were a little pup. Sounds like you are a miracle girl!

    • KDKH

      11/16/2017 at 7:44 pm

      I just have a great stylist! LOL I have no idea why my hair is so unusual; it has a mind of its own.

    OMG, Tribble! You had a couple of near misses there with the choking and the dead bird and all. Yikes! So happy your parents and the vets are on the ball. You are a little firecracker!

    Love and licks,

    • KDKH

      11/17/2017 at 12:35 am

      I can’t understand how a good girl like me always seems to get in trouble! It’s a good thing they love me so much. Paws crossed I don’t have any more near misses.

This piggy would love to snort with you :)
