Momma's leaking again, pups! More happy leaks, she says! Zoe and her wonderful family sent us more paper monies to help pay my vet bills! At least she made it off the front porch before leaking this time BOL!
Momma already had felt blessed by knowing Zoe's family, cause they let her and her old class adopt their Daddy to learn about soldiers. What a wonderful experience that was, one that people at her school STILL talk about! Everyone was very happy to hear that he made it home safe and sound and is spending time with Zoe and the other pups and kitties!
And now we've been doubly blessed! What a beautiful place this Dogster thing is!
Note from Momma: Thank you, Cathey and Ken and all of your family. You've been so kind to me already, and now this! I'm so very humbled by the kindness that's been shown to me. I've always firmly believed that people who love animals are the best kinds of people on earth, and Dogster has confirmed that for me over and over again. THANK YOU!

I'm fine today, pups. Running around like crazy and barking at the mailman BOL! Momma's relieved. She said I'm not allowed to scare her no more. Sorry Momma.
Anywoof, I have a question for my pals. Momma read about cat treats being recalled this morning, and with all the recalls, etc going on, she says she's kind of happy that I can't eat them, because she wouldn't know what to buy. But she's curious. What treats do you pups eat now? What kind of food? Does anyone make homemade treats, and if so, what kind?

Oh pups. I've done it again. I jumped off the couch tonight, and now I'm limping. Momma says she's going to either rip her hair out or put me in a giant plastic bubble so I can't get hurt or sick anymore.
Daddy blocked the stairs and all the furniture so I can't jump on anything. And Momma gave me a pain pill left over from my last hospital stay. But guess what? The only thing she had to put it in was CHEESE!!!! I got a delicious morsel of cheddar CHEESE!!!
I'm gonna go lay down now, pups. Momma hopes the pain pill makes me sleepy so I won't move around too much.

You're never going to believe what happened today, pups! Momma let me outside, and she saw that the mail had come. She dreaded getting it cause she thought there was gonna be another letter from the bank yelling at her about the bouncing checks. There wasn't (WHEW!), but there WAS a card from Zaidie and his Momma! Momma thought "Aw, how sweet! I bet it's a get well soon card all the way from Canada!" So she opened it right there on the porch while I frolicked in the grass.
Well, it WAS a get well card, but...there was a paper in there that Momma says is the same thing as money! She called it a money order. Zaidie saved up his allowance to send me money for my vet bills! Momma started leaking, right there on the porch. She couldn't help it! She says they're not sad tears, though.
Note from Momma: Zaidie and Wendy, I can't thank you enough. I have been truly blessed with some wonderful friends, all through this little website called Dogster. Another friend offered me money (I won't say who in case she doesn't want me to) and I refused, because honestly, all of your love and support and prayers and kindness are enough. Thank you, Zaidie and Wendy. Thank you thank you thank you. I have to go now because I'm getting tears all over my laptop lol!

Momma's sad today, pups. My medical bills from this last hospital stay were super expensive, and Momma's bank account started to bounce around some checks today, and she says she knows there's a few more out there that are gonna bounce around, too. She leaked for a few minutes, but then told me that I was worth every single penny, even if we don't got money until next Tuesday. I feel bad, pups! I didn't mean to get sick. And now I gotta go back on Monday, which means more money. *sniff* Stupid money. Always messing things up.
Momma's going to try staying positive, though. I mean, what else can you do, right? She says I'm more important to her than anything else in the world, pups. I'm her little lightbulb.
You know what I wish, pups? I wish teachers got paid a lot more money. Sure, they get summers off (which is nice for me!), but they do more work during the school year than a lot of people do ALL year.
I'm gonna snuggle with Momma now, pups. Don't feel bad for us. We've been in much worse money situations than this!

We've had a lot of creepy crawlies around the house, pups. The other night, me and Momma were hanging out watching the TV box, when out of the corner of her eye, Momma saw a HUGE centipede scuttle across the floor! She jumped up, screaming! She took of her Flip Flop of Doom (TM) and started beating it! Somehow (who knows how...it IS Momma, after all) she knocked a tall lamp over onto the back of her head. She didn't care, though. She just kept beating it. When she stopped to catch her breath, I meandered over all ninja like and ATE it! Which made her scream even more.
Then, yesterday, Momma was downstairs doing the laundries. I don't go down there cause the steps are scary. Anyhow, all of a sudden I heard a scream!! And then beating sounds and lots of VERY un-family friendly words!! Momma came back upstairs and said a WOOD SPIDER was in the dirty laundry basket! So she picked up the closest heavy thing, which was a metal wine bottle holder, and squished him! See, Momma won't use the Flip Flop of Doom (TM) on spiders. She says that's too close to touching them.
I didn't get to eat that spider, pups, which Momma says is just as well. She doesn't know if they're poisonous or not, and she says we're not going back to the dogtor until Monday. Hmph.

Wow, pups, being Dog of the Week really is amazing! I've gotten so many pup pal requests and requests to join groups and presents and extra chicken and OH MY!
I finished all my chicken/baby food pills this morning. Momma's very happy that she figured out a good way for me to take them, cause she said if she didn't it would have been awful. But I'm feeling pretty good now!
The only thing not cool has been all the thunderstorms we've been having. Auntie Lou Ann and Austin and Doo bought me a collar that has some sort of smelly plants in them that helps me calm down. I still pant a lot, but I'll sit under Daddy's feet and stay there rather than pace around in a panic.
I think it should just stop thunder-storming. The Dog of the Week commands it!!!

I'm feeling a lot better, pups. Momma FINALLY found a way to get me to take my pills! She crushes them up until they're like powder, then she sprinkles them in a little scoop of baby food. Then she smears the baby food on a piece of chicken! I want that chicken so bad I'm willing to lick of the ucky part to get to the good stuff! It still tastes bad, but at least I get the chicken after.
I'm acting like my normal self again. Barking at everything, getting the zoomies...Momma says a prayer every night that I don't need no surgery. Me too. And Daddy too. Daddy had his gallbladder out, but I guess it's a lot different for a pup to have theirs taken out. I guess I got my sick gallbladder from Daddy.
Speaking of Daddy, he had to bring out the carpet cleaner today. I got blood everywhere when I came home, so Daddy cleaned it up real good. I don't like that machine, but the carpet smells a lot better. And there's no more blood, which I guess is good.
*yawn* I think it's bedtime, pups! Goodnight, and sweet dreams!

I have to take 5 pills a day now, pups. I have my pain pill (that makes me wonky), a Pepcid, an antibiotic for my pooh problems, and an antibiotic (in two pills cause they don't make them in a high enough dose) for another You-Tee-Eye I got. Oh pups...me and Momma basically had a fist fight this afternoon when she tried to give them to me. Seriously. We were rolling around on the floor and she was crying and trying to jam them pills in my mouth and I kept spitting them out and eating just the chicken (CHICKEN!) and she was saying some really bad swears. So she crushed them up and stuck em in some peanut butter and let me lick it off her finger...oooooooh....peanut butter...soooooo gooooooood. But she doesn't want me to eat all that fat, so a Book of Faces friend suggested baby food, so we're gonna try that tomorrow, cause Momma said there is no way she's doing that twice a day for 7 days.
And then, after all that wrestling, you know what she did? She gave me a BATH!!!!! She said I stunk from all the blood and dire-rears, and she just washed the sheets, so I needed a bath. And what's even worse, she washed me in some flowery stink shampoo cause she doesn't like the plain stink shampoo! *sigh*
At least I still get chicken.
