Last Night ...

... She Spanked me!

I was attending to our video player setting up a video to watch.  (We have been on a Hitchcock kick).  I heard Cora behind me and she seemed to want my immediate attention.  OK.  I turned around and she was gently pulling me towards the couch.  She sat down in the middle (her usual position is on the far right) and pulled me over her lap.  I could tell what she had in mind and as I was being draped over her lap, made sure my bottom was bared for her.

As you may have noticed, we haven't been posting much as there really hasn't been much going on in our relationship in regards to our FLR.  Much of our energy has been directed in taking care of Vixen.  Thankfully she is almost completely recovered and we were so thankful that everything associated with the growth was benign.  And thanks for all the comments from our last post.  Its obvious that we are in good company when it comes to our love of our four legged friends.

So last night I guess I must have been in a 'mood'.  Not exactly in a depression but definitely energy drained and a lack of my usual passion.  Cora picked up on this and decided that a session over her lap was just what I needed.  Wow, was she ever correct.

If you have followed our blog, you know that Cora and I love our music.  Recently I discovered a device that allows me to use our wireless network to send music from the hard drive on one of our computers to our sound system.  I have been loading music from our CD (and vinyl) collection and organizing them into groups.  Last night, I had a group of 'classic rock' loaded and playing randomly.  (Its a really neat set-up).   At the time I landed over Cora's lap, bare bottomed and ready to be spanked, the song 'Venus' from Shocking Blue began to play.

Cora began hand spanking me.  Her cadence immediately fell into the rhythm of 'Venus' which has a very solid beat.  And I was getting a full four-to-the-bar hand spanking from Cora.  About half way through, she switched to one of her new Nu-West/Leda hairbrushes.  At first she hesitated a bit but soon she was back into her rhythm.  When Cora spanks along with music, she tends to accentuate her strokes more than she does without music (although I think she held back a bit with the hairbrush - Honey, you need to not hold back and just let go!).  I was definitely getting a thorough spanking. 

After I had resigned myself to getting a spanking from Cora, I just surrendered to her.  The position I was in over her lap with plenty of room on both sides of her was incredibly comfortable.  I just laid there and let the spanking sweep over me.  Yes, it was painful (I can still feel the tingle this morning as I am writing this) but it was something that I really needed.  In fact it was very enjoyable.  I know that many of the men who get spanked by their Ladies, don't actually like the actual spanking part but for me it was great.  I found myself drifting into space, knowing that I was being spanked by a Lady who loves me and can tell what I need.

'Venus' is three minutes and six seconds long.  It was interesting that it began at exactly the time Cora began her spanking.  And she stopped just when the song did.  I think the chorus goes something like:
     I'm Your Venus ...
     I'm Your Fire ...
     At Your Desire

Well, Cora is definitely my Venus.  And it was indeed my desire that she be my fire.  That fire manifested itself in the redness of my bottom when she was done with me.  Oh how I Love Her!!!

Cora and I share many passions but probably nothing like the passion we have for our pets.  When we first got together Cora had three cats and I had two dogs.  And while she was very concerned, Cora wielded her special kind of Magick and soon everyone was getting along quite well.

My two dogs, English Springer Spaniels are from a great line of 'Show Dogs' and I had planned for the younger of the two (Gypsy) to participate in the Show Dog process.  At the time I acquired her as a puppy, an arrangement was set up with the breeder to be co-owners.  The plan was for the breeder (and co-owner) to take possession of Gypsy and handle the actual showing.

So, when she was about two years old, the breeder requested that we send Gypsy to her for 'Show Dog Boot Camp'.  In addition, in order to keep her kennel population balanced, the breeder asked if we would take one of her dogs while she had Gypsy. 

Now, I have been familiar with this line of dogs and they are noted for being layed back, mellow and as sweet as can be.  So I indicated that I would be glad to take one her dogs in exchange for Gypsy, on a temporary basis.  The exchange was made at a dog show that was being held near us and Vixen came home with us that afternoon.

Cora, was not too sure about this arrangement.  She was concerned that our other Springer (Devi) might not get along, yet alone the cats.  I was confident that there would be no problem.  Devi had been around plenty of other dogs (including puppy kindergarten) and I knew that Vixen had also been around plenty of dogs, as she had won enough shows to have achieved her 'Championship'.  And I had seen Cora in action around the animals.  She has that certain Magick and truly owns the title, 'Animal Whisperer'.

So when we arrived back home, we introduced Vixen to Devi on neutral ground on the sidewalk next to one of our neighbors.  Soon, they were best pals.  And Cora soon found herself bonded with Vixen.  Tightly bonded!  Like I said, I knew this particular breed and especially the dogs bred by this Kennel and Vixen was no exception. 

Shortly after we added Vixen to our family, Cora was diagnosed with a deteriorating hip and was soon scheduled for a replacement.  Her procedure went well and Cora was soon home, recovering.  During the recovery, Vixen revealed her own healing powers.  Both Cora and I are convinced that Cora's quick healing was partly due to the presence of Vixen.  And the bonding just got tighter.

A few months later, the breeder decided to 'retire' Vixen and asked us if we would like to keep her.  Cora and I were delighted at this development and immediately said, "Of course!".  So when Gypsy was retired from her time in the Show Dog circuit, we found ourselves with three wonderful English Springer Spaniels, three very special friends and very important parts of our lives. 

We make sure that our pets get good medical care and they get annual check-ups.  During our most recent check-up, a couple of weeks ago, the vet found a 'lump' on Vixen's underside.  This was something that concerned us.  Serious Concern.  The vet took a sample from the lump and sent it out for analysis.  Meanwhile we returned home and tried not to panic.

When the call came back, we were relieved to hear that the results did not show signs of cancer.  However, the recommendation was to remove the lump.  Of course we agreed and set up an appointment to have it removed.  The date was set for Tuesday, May 17 (yesterday).

So we took Vixen to the vet at 7:30 yesterday morning and left her in the care of our vet.  Naturally it was a day full of anxiety.  About noon we received a call from the vet who indicated that the procedure went well and that we should not be concerned about the spread of anything.  (We will get final results of the analysis of the lump in a couple of days).  He also indicated we could take her home anytime after 5:00PM.

It was a happy reunion later that afternoon and we took a very groggy dog back home.  Of course Gypsy and Devi were happy to see her and it was great to see the family whole again.  Today, Vixen is taking it easy and on the road to recovery.  Gladly, she seems to be getting back into her routine and loves to curl up with Cora on the couch.

Naturally, this post is off topic from the things we usually talk about, but its something that we are very passionate about.  Real Life provides plenty of 'distractions' and we have certainly been distracted for the past couple of weeks.  Our 'Special Friends' are with us for such a short time anyway, so a threat to losing them is a large concern.  Thankfully, this time we expect that we will be blessed with their company for many years to come.

Hey, Hey, Its the First of May ....

... and Outdoor Spanking Begins Today!

Well, OK I paraphrased it a bit.  But for me its really the Pagan holiday of 'Beltane'.  Some of the traditions are still celebrated, such as the May pole and leaving baskets on front porches.

So here in the Pacific Northwest part of the USA its finally getting to look like spring. The view of the Cascade Mountains and Mt. Rainier is spectacular. We expect temperatures in the mid 60's (that's almost 20C for those of you in the more civilized parts of the planet).  Cora and I may celebrate the day by taking our pups for a walk along our local waterfront.

The downside of this time of year is that things start to grow.  Really grow.  So while we may be enjoying the beach, there will be lots and lots of yard work for me to attend to when I get back. 

So may your Maypoles remain erect and may your May Baskets be full of all kinds of goodies.

Happy Beltane!
