A STORY AS TOLD BY MY MOM...

My mother made fabric, sand-filled "snakes" to block drafts from the the bottom of the outside-leading doors...they work great and look nice, but the dog thinks they are toys made especially for him! He has to go outside via the side door instead of the back door because of this! Crazy dog! I love him to pieces, though!
I told Mom she'll have to make him a toy of his own now...as if he doesn't have enough toys and bones! Mom has something in mind.
I feel a little better today. I made a bag of kibble this morning and a whole bunch of pumpkin/apple biscuits for the dogs in our family. CJ loves them, but I don't know how my brother's dogs will take to them. My son's dog, Mary, will adore them!
My mother and I split one and decided they aren't bad, just a bit bland to us since I don't add any sugars. CJ caught us...it was not a comfortable time for Mom and me!!!! Haha!
I have a headache hanging around since very early this morning...it kinda hurts but can be ignored most of the time...for that, I'm grateful!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

 

NEW SPORT FOR MOM!!

Okay, so, I wake up Mom with a cold, wet nose to the face at 3 am because I have to pee. Normal! Mom gets up, throws on her water shoes and says, "Ok, lets go." We go to the kitchen, out to the garage and Mom unlocks the backdoor. She turns on the light and peers outside and says, "Shoot, the grass wasn't cut yet, I can't see a thing."She opens the door...

I see the bunny...it sees that I spotted it...the bunny bolts and the chase is ON! Mom is behind me and she seems like she's trying to keep quiet, she's holding the long leash in both hands (deathgrip comes to mind), holding on for dear life, as I charge across the back yard. Mom is essentially water-skiing on the long, wet grass behind me...then she hit the bump...BOOM, down she went! Amazingly, I managed to haul her considerable bulk about another 10 or 12 feet before I had to stop! I ALMOST had the bunny before she fell, and she was mad at ME!!! How ridiculous is THAT??

Anyhow, she's over her mad, the bunny lives to be chased another night and Mom wasn't SERIOUSLY hurt!

PS: Found out it's no fun after all... at night she makes me wear the head collar! I HATE that thing!

Joel has pneumonia as well now...apparently he aspirated when he was vomiting!

He may have to be intubated today...makes it hard later for his body to breathe on it's own.

This is NOT very good news.

More news later as it comes in! Please, all the prayers you all can muster for Joel!!!

 

NEW JOEL UPDATE

Mom was called late last night and told Joel was being transferred to the medical part of the hospital due to severe diarrhea and vomiting...Mom thought maybe he caught a stomach bug.

Mom went to work at #am and when she came home this morning, she called the room number and was told Joel was in the ICU!!!!

Turns out, he was vomiting coffee-ground substance, his hemaglobin was VERY low and his BP dropped like a rock!!! Sounds like a bleed, right?? They won't say till all the results are in!!

Anyhow, Mom is a wreck!! They are keeping Joel sedated...wish they'd do the same for Mom!!

Prayers, please, for Joel...I think he REALLY needs them!!!

Stay tuned...you never know...

Mom went to a 302 hearing today at the hospital. They talked and talked about Joel and how he was doing and decided he should stay in the hospital a little bit longer.

They say he's starting to feel better...I hope so, I really miss him!

Mom also went to look at another group home for Joel and really likes this place!! When Joel is out of the hospital, he can start dinner visits! We think he'll like it alot!

Stay tuned...you never know...

 

MY SKIN-BRO, JOEL

Joel had a mental crisis Sunday evening and had to be hospitalized! He is mentally retarded.

He was yelling and cussing and hitting, punching and spitting! He even tried to kick ME, even though I know he really does love me, it was a shock!

Anyway, it was real hard on all of us. Mom and Grammy were nursing their wounds after returning home from the ER after being gone for at least 5 hours! My other skin-bro, Josh, stayed with me for a couple of hours...that was MOST welcome!

Please understand that Mom can't do as much on the 'puter as usual because of all this new drama!

WE HATE DRAMA!!!

Stay tuned...you never know...

 

PET FOOD BANK

Mom found a pet food bank in the county (Chester County, PA)!!!!

She had been trying to find a place that would take all the commercial food I refused...Mom makes my kibble herself now!

The bags were, of course, opened and this was the first place to call and say they'd take it!

Mom went down alone on Saturday morning...I was still felling pretty punk! When Mom saw the set-up, she was very pleased! Next to the food bank is a "No-fleas Thrift shop!!!

Because of this place, many dogs and cats are able to stay with their people and not be abandoned or sent to the shelter or (gasp) put to sleep!

Mom went to the store to pick up a few things and ended op getting 50 more pounds of Pedigree dog food and dropping it off at the pet food bank!

Mom says she'll do everything she can, when she can for this organization!!

I'm proud of my Mom!!

WE'LL BE MOVING IN A FEW MONTHS...

Mom says we'll be out of this house by the middle of the summer because the landlord is such a *%#$@%%#!...or something like that! The woman has made it a perfect mess here! The landlord, not Mom!!

Anyway, we're looking and looking and looking now. Don't know quite where we'll end up, but it should be in the general area.

Mom has decided to go to school to become a certified dog trainer/behaviorist!! I'm glad...she's good. She's been doing it a long time without the cert. Now she'll be legit! GO MOM!!

We are a bit disappointed that the Flyers couldn't sweep the Penguins last night...we really got spanked! We're sure the Flyers will come out on top! Mom has been a fan for 45 seasons! Long time!!

Stay tuned...you never know!

What a shock!! Diary of the Day??? I only just started!!

Thanks, it's still a nice honor!!

My leg is starting to feel a bit better...of course, I'm still on meds! Mom says NO WALKS TILL NEXT WEEK!!! Woof! No doggie park until after I tolerate a "full walk" again.

I tried chasing butterflies and moths out of the yard, but Mom put an end to that as well!! In a nutshell, I'm pretty bored!

This was a nice diversion!

Stay tuned...you never know...
