Pupdate For MJF
Woof…wooble-wobbly woofs…Ooohhhhh….I am spinning…..gotta go lie down again...
I’ll let growlmy take ovfur again…
What was happening on August 18th.
Thanks so much from the bottom of my heart for all the pawyers, and POTP. Wow! Even from furs and peeps I do not know. I am touched and feeling your care and concern. Thank you all *very much*!
Thanks Whitely too, for making a link in your blog for MJF. So much appreciated.
Even Dogster Pals from of old came to my blog and here on his Dogster page to send their thoughts and encouragements.
I am overwhelmed! And so many prezzies on his page here too.
Please accept my thanks here, there is no way right now I have time to go and thank you all in person…since well, I work, and Minko needs to be fed and medicated 3 - 4 times a day…add MJF into that schedule, Oh MY…
Aug 18th in the evening:
Well, not too much has changed, other than MJF has eaten two treats…and barfed them up again, BOL! Poor dude.
He did keep his meal down when I fed it to him spoon by spoon, after mushing it up. And today again, he will let me feed him spoon by spoon…I should get a different job, feeding critters by spoon…like the work I already do at the nursing home, BOL!
The vet man said he thinks MJF has ‘old dog syndrome'…aka vestibular disease/syndrome.
He also maybe thought his eardrum was ruptured. He said it could be a tumor or head injury but those were less likely causes.
He gave MJF a steroid shot, some antibiotics in case his eardrum is ruptured and some meclizine to help with the dizziness. So far no changes noted. He still staggers about, and stairs are a real challenge, and there is no avoiding them here in our house, so sometimes I guide him with the leash, or I carry him. Going down is much harder…
The vet thinks this will resolve over time, and that is what others have related to us as well…from their own experience. I had no idea this was so common. Yikes:(
I hope that when I have to go to work next, (tomorrow), that he will be some better…At least hubby gets home shortly after I leave.
He seems to be getting a teeny bit better, he ate a couple treats by himself…but not his regular food as yet…unless I feed it. His eyes are darting at a slower rate, but his head is still tilting…and when he tries to go potty…he refuses to squat, stubborn terrier stuff, OMD!
He even barked at something he heard, and sang a song with the ambulance that went by…
The varmints out back are likely having a hey-day since MJF doesn’t run too well right now, let alone even pay them heed, BOL! Poor dude.
He still is stumbling like a drunkard, and he looks at me as if to say, what is happening to me?
On a side note, MJF weighed in at 24.8 pounds, which is a loss of about 5 pounds from his last checkup (about a year ago), at his old vet office. He is on a low glycemic, grain free kibble, and it seems to have made good progress helping him back to his ideal weight.
Well, I need to carry MJF outside once more before getting our weary bones to bed…
It might be a day or two before I post again due to my work schedule...
And thank you all again:))

MJF is furry sick…last night when I came home from work, there was no MJF to greet me. Strange. His food bowl was full and his treats were still on the floor.
Hubby said that while he really didn’t know if he was not right before this, but when he sat down to eat his own supper, MJF tried to run outside, He bumped his head on the way out. When he came back in he seemed dazed, and shakey.
This was still going on when I was back home, hours later. He was also jerking his head a bit, and his eyes too. They go back and forth in a manner called nystagmus. Likely this makes him dizzy and not wanting to eat. He does drink, though. He walks like he is drunk. YIKES:(
He can hardly make the steps to go outside…so I put on his leash and take him out slowly, and to keep him upright.
I even had to carry him once, Wow.
He may have had a stroke, a head injury or he might have a condition called vestibular syndrome.
So off the vet we go. It is a new vet office, since we have changed vets on account of Minko…who also is sill not eating on his own…sheesh, now there are two furs here that need to be fed as MJF does eat if I make his food all mushy and feed him with tiny spoonfuls.He has kept down two small meals like that…about a 1/4 cup of his grain free kibble mixed with water to a mush of about 1/2 cup.
We here covet your pawyers and good thoughts.
At 13 years, never having been sick, other than breaking a tooth this is scary territory for us.
I am so scared this means that maybe we are getting to the goodbye time…I sure hope not, OMD:((

Wow, I have reached my thirteenth Gotcha Day!
Thanks so much to all who have sent me paw-mails, and prezzies on my page.
Cooper and his furblings went to work in their picture shop and sent this artwork to me:

Well, gotta go sleep now, my batteries need to charge for longer than they used to:)

That's right folks and pals!
A while back on April 30, I became 13 years young.
Growlmy abandoned me in favor of her residents at the nursing home...
Then on the pretense of lots of other not good excuses she did not let me write anything here...sheesh.
Thanks so much for all the big hugs, and many other prezzies I received to help me dogabrate.
And thanks too for all those Earth Day freebies!!
I am doing well, and as frisky and full of silliness I evfur was!
And I snore...but I think I did that all along...
I got some pictures from pals, too. Thanks so much!
From Austin, Dee and Angel Doo
From The Birthday and Gotcha Day Club
From Cooper and his furmily
I got a lot of other graphics too...way too many to post here, but thanks so much, they are always fun to get.
Tomorrow is Mother's Day.
Growlmy: I love you!! Happy Mother's Day!!
And her and pawppy went out today, leaving me on yard guard duty...they went to the local shelter...OMD!
Something about getting me a brofur. Hmmm...we shall see what comes of this. I will need to share my things...OMD, sibling rivalry I predict, BOL!
I guess I shall keep you all posted on this one.

Woofs all my pals!
Or I should woof, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, because its already Dec 26th here, BOL!
Growlmy is always so late...
We were supposed to have a white one, and we thought we might, it was snowing late Wednesday night, but today there was only a dusting.
At least it was better than all that rain we had past few days.
Boss-boy and unfurbro are home, yippee!
I got some yummy treats and a couple of new stuffies. One of which I have started to destroy! BOL! Its a rabbit, what else does a terrier do with a rabbit?? OMD!
Thanks to all my pals fur sending me all those Christmas trees today!
Now finally I have some seasonal themes there...growlmy decided to leave the current background up permanently. Sigh...she just hasn't got time to keep changing it she says...
I also got lots of snail mail cards from furends! Thanks so much!
Today I wore a red, white and green collar, sort of festive with little jewels on it, as befits a 'Sir Jack'...but growlmy had to take it off, cause I was scratching and got some of the 'jewels' dislodged...shucks, it was nice not to jingle so much that is what those tags do on my regular collar.
Well, I am sleeping now, to be ready for what the next days shall bring to do...
And just in case I furget:
Happy New Year!
May your 2015 be fun filled and well blessed.

Hi there! Woofs to all!
Sorry I am not much here, but I do try and check in each day, but I know I missed a lot while growly was away. Sorry about that.
Barking Like A Dog
Growlmy went on a vacation/visit to see her sister and aunt. Here is the account as it is in my blog: (along with some pictures.)
Growlmy got her just rewards…at least in my eyes for abandoning me while she went on her vacation.
She drove to aunties house in pouring rain…had to wait in a traffic snarl due to an accident…and then some dog stole her identity and traded his voice with hers. So now she is barking like a dog. BOL!
And on her drive back she had to wait for yet another accident, and more rain combined with snow showers….UGH!
And she says she feels her vacation was a waste because she was sick…and still is. Off to the peep-vet tomorrow. Running a temp for more than 5 days isn’t good. Sigh. (The only good thing is that she doesn’t have to miss any work for now…she hopes to be feeling well enough by the time she has to resume her duties with her residents…who surely do *not* need any barking dogs taking care of them, BOL!
She can’t talk without coughing like that dog, I wonder what kind of dog it is, I had to have a good sniff of her when she got back. All she had for me was a Christmas collar…OMD! Are you kidding? She says her excuse is…well that barking stuff.
She didn’t even get out her camera for a selfie, today…but she did get one of my doggy cousin Murphy sporting that new collar.
My Great Auntie settled well into her new abode in a long term care facility. She seems happy enough, and is eating better now, so she has regained some strength. She motors around with her walker, though its more of a mental crutch than a mobility aid.
On Nov seventh, she turned 95!
So it was a momentous and busy day.
In the morning coffee was had in an alcove just off of where she has her room…(she is in a huge complex, 6 apartment buildings, and 2 nursing homes, as well as many services such as a bank, a teeny grocery store, 2 hair salons, even a church. All under one roof, all attached by a series of tunnels, like a rabbit warren! Easy to get lost in, but most of the peeps who live there have out all figured out!) (Great Auntie lived in her own apartment there until just now, for 22 years already!)
Everyone passing by said Happy Birthday and stopped to greet the lady of honor.
A cousin who lives in Europe called in via the confuser and Skype, that was fun!
Great Auntie just smiles back, because she is so deaf she can’t hear a thing…
After growlmy was gone, one of her cousins popped in on his lunch hour.
Then she took a rest, and later she was picked up to be driven to another city where growlmy’s other cousins live. And they took her out to dinner…she ate with a voracious appetite! BOL! Must be yummier than the nursing home fare…
Of course they met up with yet another huge traffic jam…and a trip that is about 35 miles took 90 minutes, OMD.The return trip was much faster!
Growlmy says at least she wasn’t barking then yet. Or she might have been thrown out as a doggy impostor!
Now growlmy says that there are almost 100 unread blogs to check out…um…no way will she be able to do that. But she soon will try to pick up on the latest entries.
And maybe even she might find some time or barkless moment to reply to all your comments.
Sorry about being AWOL…or missing important stuff.
Growlmy is going to keep a low profile for a while until she feels better…and gets her own barkless identity back.
Maybe if I furgive her and send her some POTP along with all of you it will help speed the healing up?

Ahoy mateys and swabs!
Oh dear me, My pirate swashbuckling self was not allowed by my captain-growlmy to get on here today, so I missed sending out those pawsome pirate flags.
I shall just get back into my galleon and sail away to some isolated island and lick my wounded psyche...BOL! Arrgghhhh!
I appawlogize if it becomes a pirate to do that, esp a swashbuckler like I...otherwise I shall make growlmy walk the plank fur her misdemeanor and falling short of the pirates standard...to be there fur the boss! BOL! Arrgghhhhh!
Hope ya'll had a fun day, being pirate mates!

Dogster is doing evfur sooooooooo much better today!
I only seem to have a wee trouble when I want to make a comment somewhere, but I can get there with a bunch of extra clickings. I am becoming clicker trained, BOL!
Thank Woofs I-5 Publishing fur working so furry hard and with great diligence to fix our most beloved site(s).
I am so gratefur!
Through this long deflea-ing process I am revved up and ready to woof and bark all around, but growlmy is busy with tons of not doggy stuff these days, so you may notice that I am not sending out art works lately...I do a-paw-logize.
And well, I do know that I have missed lots of doings and spawsial dates, too. Sorry and please let me hug you ((( ♥ ))) to make it up!
I hope all is well with my many furry pals and their furmilies.
I have missed you all!

Wowee! The comments are back! OMD!! Hooray!! Yippee!
Thanks so much to I-5 Publishing fur getting that fixed, now we can all woof with each other again. Sheesh, I was getting sort of lonely!
Not much happening with me...I turned 12 somewhere along the way, but my batteries run at full power when I am not in napland.
I did a ton of digging, and barking at all kinds of stuff, and Growlmy & Pawppy had their 27th wedding annifursary.
I still get to do lots of yard guard duty, which includes lots of barking...
The peeps are furry busy, and sometimes I don't even get any confuser time. That means that now the picture factory/shoppe I ran, will be running at much reduced power...so sorry about that, pups. Maybe the days should be 48 hours...but I guess there is a reason they're only allowed 24 hours, BOL!
Well, now I gotta go snoop around the other doings here.

Growlmy is so frustrated today. Not with me, though, BOL!
She is in a coffee shop to use their internet to tell you that ours is out of commission and we do not know when it will be back up and running. Grrr,
Sorry I m missing out making pictures for you and not playing In your pages, either.
I know I am also missing out on spawsial days and honors...shucks. Please forgive me and hang in there. I hope you are all having a great day...and I will be back as soon as I can.
