PART 2....OMD! FALL-OUT,TAKE COVER,PHEWY!!!!!!
Yesterday, I left my Doggie Hotel Saga with being home,tucked into bed
with Gpa and keeping my eyes on Gma! I was miffed! During the night
I was up doing more poopies...Gma heard me and got up and changed
my potty station. By Wednesday mornin',I wasn't mad at Gma anymore....
I was not playing with my meals and eating right away.....Sometimes,I
play with my breakfast until early afternoon,when I finally finish it. You'd
think,that means,I get a bowl full. NOPE, it is 1/4 c with 10 pcs. of Purina
burger/cheese soft food topping my Nutro Small Breed Whole Chicken/
Brown Rice and Oatmeal formula. So anywho, ate and pottied...Softer
than before??? Then, I switched to poop,poop and more poop! OMD!
What's going on??????
I was bright eyed,wanted to play just making too many poops! Gma
told Gpa nothing but her pup food...What? She has a upset tummy!
I ate supper and what no venison nibbles like almost every night? Gma
did let me have a teenie tiny greenie (mostly rice) for bedtime snack.
We did our regular stuff in the evening and got ready for bed. So,we
are all snuggled in,Gma was watching Perry Mason. Gpa and myself
were fast asleep! It's 11:30 p.m., I DASH OUT OF THE COVERS.....
RUN DOWN MY PET STAIRS,RACE THROUGH THE BATHROOM.
BY PASSING MY SMALL POTTY STATION. RACE TO THE ENTRY,
WHERE I HAVE THE EXTRA LARGE STATION. I'M NOT AS FLEXIBLE
AS I WAS,WHEN I WAS YOUNGER!!!!
Gma jumps up and follows me, to see what is matter???? I NOW HAVE
LOTS AND LOTS OF MUSHY POOP! I'VE PLASTERED THE STATION!
I'VE NOW POOPED MORE IN 1 DAY THAN I EVER HAVE IN MY WHOLE
LIFE! These last dumps are like a cow on too much fresh green grass!
Big huge splats and no shape at all.... I'm done,Gma changes everything.
Back to bed we go.....took time for me to settle in and go back to sleep.
Gma said,my tummy was just rumbling....Gpa sleeps through the whole
Sometime during the night,I'm not talkin'.....I did this scenerio all over
again! Gma was out like a light. Gpa heard me, but didn't get up....
The next morning, the big station is all plastered again,when Gma
and I start our day. I'm still hungry and eat all my breakfast...It isn't
even 30 minutes and I'm running to poop some more! In less than
an hour,I have 3 poops they are very watery. The last 1 Gma can see
fresh blood in it. After that,I kept going back,doing circles,like I had
more business but nothing happened. I did this until 2 p.m.,but no
Gma had been trying to get through to the Fur Docs,line was busy!
Thursday is cattle sale day,so 1 Doc is there. It's calving season,so
2 were out on calls. The last Doc was in surgery with a cow. When
she finally spoke to the Vet Tech,they said, bring me in at 3:30 p.m.
By now,I have a very sore butt! Gma feels guilty for taking me to the
Doggie Hotel. Her good time for her Anniversary,now doesn't seem
like such a good time.....
She is also wondering,if I snatched something off the ground,while
walking with Gpa on Fri.,Sat., or Sunday??? Then she sees on
dogster, there are new food and treat recalls. She spends 2 hours,
checking to make sure nothing we have is on the current lists. She
is very worried about me. I'm not drinking as much as I should.....
I'm not feeling so good and I stick to Gma like glue. My eyes
are bright,no fever.....but,something is wrong!
We go to town and I was happy to take a ride in the car. I sure didn't
know,I was ending up at the Fur Hospital ! We arrived a little early,
expecting to wait with livestock emergencies. Only 1 Doc was there,
our new Girl Doc....She was in surgery with a cow! FUTURE FAST
FOOD BURGERS makes this nice 3 yr. old Golden Retriever and
myself have to wait??????????
As soon as I got in there,I wiffed the air and OMD! It's the place where
they always do something to me! I'M ON GMA'S LAP BUT SHAKING
LIKE A LEAF! Doxies throw dander, when they are anxious or stressed...
Gma goes back to the car, gets my big fluffy blanket and wraps me up.
I'm better now,but I want out of here A.S.A.P. I wasn't anxious when
Gma arrived to take me home from the Doggie Hotel.
Gma is really worried, I wasn't a real happy little camper either! 90 minutes
later,it's my turn. I'm going to be seeing the Girl Doc. This might not be so
bad after all??????? She doesn't act like, I'm a stock cow! Gma gives her
the whole story of my activities since last Friday. My short stay at Doggie
Hotel. My history of only being away from them both 1 night in my whole
life. What went in me and what came out of me! A yucky sample in a jar!
The whole 9 yards,as every detail was important to the Fur Doc. i'm always
current on all vaccinations.
Chrissie speaks softly to me....Examines my back and hips.(cuz,I'm doxie).
She feels my whole body and my tummy. Looks in my mouth and listens
to heart. Weighs me...They runs tests on my sample. While I'm there they
do my heartworm blood test and clip my nails too... Gma and Doc have a
Big POW-WOW,took forever......She tells Gma, that she keeps very accurate
records and is on top of things. Doc is impressed,that I'm cross trained
and NEVER SOILED anything in the HOUSE! It was a bad situation....
She was pretty sure I never picked anything off the ground that Gpa didn't
see....She said,I would have been sick before I was.....Since Gma didn't find
current recalls on things I eat,she wasn't concerned. She told Gma, she
had seen and treated...as well as had a Lab with the same issue....
Gma was told, I HAVE STRESS INDUCED BACTERIAL COLITIS. This was
after running tests and looking at my yucky Gma brought in....I HAVE WHAT?
LITIS????????? NO I DON'T...I HAVE A SORE BUTT AND AS SOON AS
I EAT .......PHEWY! I STINK AND POOP EVERYTHING RIGHT THROUGH ME!
NOW that I've grossed all my pals out.....I'll tell you the next time,what my
medicines are. How they are working? How long I have to take it??? What
her recommendations are for me returning to the DOGGIE HOTEL before
the month is over. Remember Gma is going to see her Mom for 3 wks.
So I was going to go there the day she packs,Gpa is suppose to pick me
up after Gma is on the very early silver winged bird. I've stayed at my
house,by myself in the past....The Fur Doc said, Do THIS and SEE WHAT
PLANS are taking the grand-kids on vacation to South Dakota in June....
These stays were scheduled, so I would get used to the place. The plans
for S.Dakota are 5-7 days. Well, I might just change those plans! You
think????????? OMD! Would my hooman sister be upset! I was there
at the Doggie Hotel when I was a puppy...A couple times when Gma
went shopping for the day. I spent 1 day and 1 night there. It's nice
clean, 5 star place....So, Gma says. If you're wondering why, I'm so
OLD and haven't been there on a regular basis???? It's cuz, this lady
was very sick a few years ago. She had to do a ton of Doctoring to be
made well again. Gma has known her for decades.....She used to groom
Angel Sassy Foxie, when Gma's arthritic hands couldn't do it anymore.
She's a SWEET LOVING LADY....I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED???

Early,Monday morning,Grandma took me for a ride. WowZer,this will be FUN!
Ssssssssssooooooo I thought! Why did she put a box of my stuff in the car?
Why did she put one of my beds and several blankets in the car? Some stuffies
too! Who said, you can give away ANY of my STUFF????????
Something was mighty Fishy about this ride. However, I looked out and then
curled up on the seat and snuggled into the pillow with a blanket. Didn't take
long and we were stopping. Pulled into a yard, I saw a couple Golden Retrievers,
they barked at the car...So I barked a greeting back at them. Just trying to be
The sign said, Prairie Pets or somethin' like that?..Gma and I get out and go inside.
I know this lady, haven't seen her for vvvvveeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrryyyyyyyylong
time....OMD! There are 2 little long haired doxies, 3 cats and some birds.
Those doxies and I went nose to nose to smell each other....next thing,I knew:
Gma brought my stuff inside.
While this lady fussed with me,Gma put all my stuff in a room. She put my
breakfast down,fixed my bed,my stuffies were on the bed. Lynn held me,
Gma gave her a note...They chatted and Gma left! She left me there ....
Something about their Anniversary,alone time,escaped from the ranch
for 1 day and night. Last year there was a blizzard, they were trapped
at home with ME! Most years they have been at home due to livestock....
I certainly didn't understand being left in this place. I didn't cry when Gma
left. Gma said, even with such a nice place.....I wasn't impressed! I wasn't
in the same space as the 2 red doxies. I guess,I didn't like being there too
much! I'm a chow hound! I didn't eat anything at all,until I got home on
Tuesday at 1:30p. Gma knows, I didn't eat because she measured the
food,treats and such before I went....LOOKS like every bite came home
I'm not telling what I did or didn't do at the Doggie Motel! Gma came back
and was right to my nice big kennel 5x10 ft. before I saw her. I snuggled
into my bed and 3 blankets. We had an extra heater going for us little furs.
The big furs in another area only had the regular building heat. She surprised
me, said Mazy girl...Ready to GO HOME????? Are you kidding me???Of
course,I'm ready to go to my own palace!
Gma let me out,packed my stuff,carried it out! I was by her side and only
stopped to pee. Loaded up,we came home....I only looked around,when
she would slow down or stop the car. It's a nice place,but wasn't my house!
I stopped to sniff and kiss the Ponderosa ground,when we made it home!
Ran into the house,a.s.a.p.! I was starving.....I had Monday's breakfast
Tuesday afternoon! I refused to eat there! Not even treats!
Gma unpacked and put all my stuff away...Now,I was feeling comfortable
about being back home. So, then I decided to not let Gma fuss over me!
I went into my CAVE...my safe place under Great-Grandpa's Rocker...
I wasn't coming out!!! The Princess then began her pouting mode!
Expressing, I didn't like being left behind!
By bedtime,I'd had 2 meals and done my business. Cuz, I wouldn't
potty while away from home. I snuggled into Gpa at bedtime and
kept my eyes on Gma! I was still miffed at her! Left me behind!
My 2 poopies were softer than normal. Gma said,not surprised since
you didn't eat,you little stinker!!!
This Tale involves the whole week, plus 8 days of medicine...You'll
have to read on to see what happened...How this adventure all plays
out......ALL BECAUSE OF A WEDDING ANNIVERSARY! I mean really!

Hunting Mouse In The House.........
I have a Real Live MOUSE in the house! Maybe more than 1!!!! Yep,I've huntin'
the whole main floor of the house for the last 2 days! Runnin, sniffin' along the
baseboards,behind and around furniture. Tryin' to stick my snout under stuff
like the hutch and entertainment center. By last night I had Gma freakin' out!
She's not afraid of mice....I've searched the whole main floor of the house!!!!
She sure doesn't want 1 crawlin' into the bed while we are sleepin'! Gpa set a
bunch of traps last night....Gma hasn't found any mouse poop...I've never done
this kind of indoor HUNT! I do know what mice are,as I've caught them outside!
Long story short, they become part of my huntin' history! Today I've still been
lookin' all over the place. What bugs Gma is: if you see 1 mouse,you usually
have several. We had 1 in a trap downstairs....Not fresh! Gpa has been slackin'
off on trap patrol! His job to check traps and reload them...
Gpa and Gma watched me yesterday in total amazement! I didn't want to stop
huntin' even for lunch! Can you believe it? I've been squeezin' into places where
no hooman can go..but mice can! After 2 hours of solid trackin' yesterday...Gma
couldn't work with the new confuser,cause she was upset over the vermin. So we
sat down and finished her book. I finally curled up on her lap and took a nap..
I was pooped from all the huntin' and not catchin' the critter!
Heard the sayin' when it rains is pours?????? Well, garage hadn't even started on
Gpa pickup repair. He went and got it,as he needed it. Will take the old pickup to
capitol city for repair. Cold since the blizzard....Not melting! Started snowin'
last night. Has snowed most of the day and we have several new inches of white
Gma has had alot of headaches with settin' up the new silver pain box. Plus the
programs that needed to be turned on. Guess what??????? The laptop seems to
be doing fine. She worked all day with the external hard drive and 3 techy people.
Thought everything was workin' like it is suppose too....NOT! The 3rd. tech peep
said, there was something wrong with the unit. Instead of mailing it to the company
as that would take longer. Told us to take it back to the store and exchange for
a new one. We've only had it since last Friday. Can you believe it??????
Now Gma has to tell Gpa she needs him to take her up for the replacement. She
did call the store and they will exchange... Sure he isn't goin' to be happy! What
are the odds of having both a defective hard drive on laptop(fixed) and then a
defective external hard drive???None of this stuff was cheap...Gma having a
headache before the day is over..it gettin' to be a daily thing. I decided just to stay
quiet and not cause any other trouble for her....She has lost the whole day to
Better paw-off,as she has to wrap prizes for the furmily Easter on Sunday. My
hooman sister has to work on the real Easter. They play games,as grand-kids
think they are too old for the egg hunt...She has 2 desserts to make on Saturday.
Sister is cookin' and goin' to their place. Now the 100 m trip to the store for
the exchange. Hope it stops pourin' trouble around here real soon! My old folks
are goin' to be real crabby! Boy Gma really needs that massage tomorrow. She
hasn't been for 2 wks.,due to the weather.
Hugs and Kisses,Mazy
