Interesting weekend with mom's niece

Well mom's niece is here. I have been spoiled lately because she likes to give me a dog biscuit along with Champ and Aquilla. I love getting petted by her too. I also got to ride in the car with her, mom and grandma to Sonic today too.

Last night I had to keep an eye on mom while the side effects of her medicine were triggering her muscle spasms on her face. I layed down on my bed next to where she lays on the bed. Every so often I would get up and go to the side of the bed and whine to get her to reach over and let me know she is okay like I did when she used to have her seizures. She can talk during these though and they have only been happening since she started taking Geodon. Her dr. is working on getting them under control though. But mom was okay and called her friend she had to get off the phone with while this happened and let her know she was okay. I stayed where I could watch her from the side of the bed until mom fell asleep and then went around to the other side where my favorite bed is and went to sleep. Was an interesting night last night.

 

Christmas week and no power...

Well this was a very interesting week for me and mommy. Christmas Day at 11 pm we lost power. Mommy started a fire in the fireplace and put my coat on me when the house got to 55 so that I would stay warm. I didn't know what to think of the snow being up to my tummy as I tried to walk through it. Mommy kept me and my buddies Champ and Aquilla Marie warm though by having a fire in the fire place since we had no heat and putting me in my winter coat to help keep me warm. Mom had to pull out her sleeping bag and unzipped it and laid it across her bed with the rest of her blankets and was able to keep herself warm. She put the stuff that needed to be kept cold into a cooler and went outside and put some snow into it to keep them cold until her Uncle could get to the store and get her some ice for them.

Mom had plenty of food for me and my buddies so we were okay and she had enough medicines as well so she was okay. I still helped remind her to take her medicine even though the first morning after I did what I was supposed to she forgot because of having a panic attack so I helped her to get calm down so she could be level and able to do what was needed even though I kept trying to remind her like I was supposed to do.

I sure hope we don't go through this again without Grandma here. Because I was worried about her until Mom told me she would be okay. Me and my buddies waited in the kitchen the first night hoping she would come home but she didn't. I am just glad Grandma is home now. So that was what happened this most adventurous Christmas week.

 

Had to help Mommy through an attack at Church

This past Sunday I had to help mommy through one of her panic attacks. I had to get her to keep focusing on me and not the people around her in order to help her get the anxiety attack she was having under control before it went into a panic attack. I got mom calmed down enough to where she was okay and able to make it through the rest of the Church service.

Mom has also been having a hard time as well. My buddy Laddie passed away this year and this is our first Christmas without him with us. I have to worry about helping mom through this for I know I will get lots of love for my hard work in return and that's all I want from her. I still have my buddies Champ and Aquilla so I know I will be okay. All I want is for my mom to get through this Christmas without my buddy here with us.

 

Noticed Something wrong with mom..

While mom was at work I noticed something about her when he was bending over in pain. I went up to her and licked her hand to get her attention and make sure she was okay. Mom had something done by her doctor and was having bad cramps because of it. So I would go up to her every now and then and check on her to make sure she was okay. She would tell me she would be okay once her cramps went away after taking some tylenol and that she was waiting for it to kick in. So I kept checking on her everytime she came back to the table to make sure she was okay.

 

It is an interesting weekend so far...

Mom's nieces came over Thursday night so things have been alot louder than normal here. I seem to be getting more doggy biscuits than I usually do because of Emma wanting to give us all one. I went with mom, grammy, and nieces to the park today. I got to go for a walk around the park on a walking Path with mom and another time with her and Emma. Then when we went over to the playground where all the kids were a bunch of them came over and wanted to pet me while I was laying down like mom had told me to do. Alot of parents were asking mom about what kind of dog I was and if it was okay to pet me because of my vest. I went for a walk this morning with mom and Emma too. Boy does all this excitement wear an old dog out really quickly. But I enjoy all the petting and treats I seem to be getting. Especially from Emma.

 

Went with mom to volunteer

Went with mom wednesday to the Spay & Neuter clinic. I got looked at by the vet to see what was causing my skin to itch so much and Dr. Lacourse checked me out and had the nurse give me a shot to help with it. He told mom to give me the meds my vet is giving her and that the shot will help relieve the itching somewhat as well while the antibiotics will get rid of the itching infection. Dr. Lacourse told mom that I was very well behaved because of how I didn't fight them when they rolled me over and such. Got a visit from Norman the clinic cat. He came up and nuzzled me to say heloo and then went on his way as he always does. Mom did some laundry, and got stuff in order for the clinic. Laura came in with her buddy Bo a labrador she is fostering. Bo seemed to go and pick a toy out of the toys in the lobby and played with it the whole time he was there. He even came over and checked me out. He seemed to like me so I think I made me a new buddy. He even came over and laid down close to my mom and I when his foster mom wasn't there. So it was pretty cool getting to make a new friend that was a dog like me.

I went with mom to the Spay and Neuter clinic today as she volunteered there. I kept an eye on her as she did what they needed her to do and made sure she was okay. I even got a visit from Morris the cat as he came up to me I sniffed him to check him out and he nuzzled against me. Mom was there from 9 am until 2:45 pm helping out. I even got some love from some of those who were there as well. So was an interesting time today.

Well thank goodness I didn't have to go there to get spayed because I already was. But I got to lay under the table while Mom volunteered and stamped envelopes and put stickers on ziplocs for the medicine for the dogs who were getting spayed or neutered. Morris the cat even came up to me and nuzzled against me as well a few times. He seemed to just want someone to rub against more then anything. He let me sniff him to check him out as he did that too. He seemed okay. The other cats wouldn't come anywhere near me and just eyed me from a distance. We were at the clinic from 10 am to 1 pm and then mom went home. I got a treat when I got hom for being such a good dog too. Wonder what it will be like the next time Mom goes there to help out.

 

Been going to church with mom

Well I have been going to church with mom for the past three weeks and it is okay. I seem to get alot of attention and love from the kids and people there when I go with mom. Poor mom has an anxiety attack when the people come to her greeting her during the church welcome and I have to help her through it by coming up to her and getting her to focus on me and pet me. I don't seem to mind the loud music coming from the live band either. I really enjoy being able to lat down on a cool tile floor instead of carpet though. Feels good and cool compared to the carpet.

It will be interesting when the time comes when mom gets a puppy to add to the household. Not to sure about that but we will see. At least it will be a girl and mini aussie. So she will always be smaller than me no matter what. So that shall be interesting to see how I can handle that. The one who might not handle it well would be Aquilla Marie who already growls at me for no reason when I only want to come in grammy's bedroom and visit her. Grammy was surprised that Champ let me lay down on his dog bed with him but I did. Kind of nice to have a buddy to sleep with.

 

What an interesting week...

Well looks like Monday mom and I both went to see the doctor. Me for my paw that hurts and skin condition because of allergies, and Mom for her bronchitis. So I got to go with her into the doctor's office. I was very quiet and stayed out of the doctor's way by moving when he scotted over on his rolling stool. He checked mommy out and told her what to do and said to come back if it continued to be a problem.

Well Mom has been getting better slowly but surely. I still help remind her with to take her medicines as well as when she has an attack like she did yesterday by staying with her and helping her through it.

It was really interesting this week having Mom's nieces over. I will say one thing I sure do love all the attention mom's nieces give me especially when I get a milk bone biscuit from the youngest one.

So glad mom got me some MuddLuks for me to wear on my feet so that I don't get my feet burned walking in the parking lots and the asphalt. They feel kind of awkward but are alot better than walking in my bare feet. Will just have to get used to them is all. Mom plans on getting me some high quality shoes down the road. Well guess I will go take a nap now that the little ones are gone finally. Boy does a 6 year old and 10 year old wear you out when your an old dog.
