I SAVED TALKER'S LIFE AGAIN TODAY!!!!!! |/a/|
You see, mom and baby J were in the bedroom cooling off because it's been really mucky at home. Dad was in the living room getting ready to watch the Dodger game. Well Tee decided to do his security rounds five minutes early in order to watch the game wiff Dad. Well he went into the computer room and flung the door open. Dad, being a stickler about keeping all the doors closed while the A/C is on, immediately shut the door; locking Tee in there wiff out any AIR!!!!!!!
Twenty minutes later, Dad went into the bedroom to ask mom if she wanted to go grab some dinner wiff the baby. Well I was flapping my wings big time and trying to get mom off the bed to go to the back bedroom. WELL finally she did. She saw shadows moving under the door and immediately heard me SCREAMING IN HER EAR, OPEN THE DOOR MOM TEE IS TRAPPED INSIDE AND IT'S 100 DEGREES IN THERE AND HE CAN'T GET OUT!!!!!!!!!
Sure enough mom opened the door and Tee came staggering out of there panting up a storm.
So again...I saved his life. It's tough being an Angel.

Here's my Review of the Conjuring
Mom and Dad went to see The Conjuring this afternoon. I had the bancam on dad and he went to sleep the minute he got in his seat!!!!!! Luckily Mom kept checking him to make sure that his head stayed focused on the screen because I didn't want to miss a thing.
So the movie was about a family who lives in this farmhouse and the farmhouse is haunted!!!
Heck who knows why after the first incident they didn't split was beyond me. Even the pup in the movie knew not to go inside of the house.
There were a lot of scary scenes in the movie. Kids getting their feet pulled when they're sleeping which would really get me mad if that happened to me cuz I don't like to bee disturbed when I'm sleeping. Scary things in the cellar; scary things in the trees and scary things in the wardrobe.
There were a lot of people jumping out of their seats in the theater. Mom didn't jump though and finally dad woke up and he kept trying to explain the movie to my mom which was really annoying because WE SAW THE MOVIE DAD!!!! WE DIDN'T NEED YOU MAKING SURE WE GOT IT!!!
There was a dog in the movie right in the beginning and her scenes were unfortunately cut short.
I'm giving this moving 8 doggie treats for the suspense and the big ending and also for having a pup in the movie.

Today is my first Rainbow Bridge Day. It has been one year since I've been away. Up here at the Bridge I think they'll give me a cupcake and my memory book so I can remember all the good days I had wiff my family.
Mom has been crying this morning. I think it's cuz I came to her in a dream last night. She was sleeping on the couch and I came up next to the couch like I use to do. I would align myself next to the couch so mom could elevator me up wiff her. She was talking to someone and telling them that last year I was really sick but somehow I was cured and that it had been already a year and I was back to normal. Mom felt my weight and knew I was healthy again.
I thought it was a good dream to send her but mom woke up crying. I think she's missing the message. I am okay and I am healthy and not sick and that's how I wanted to come to her.
Thank you all for thinking of me. I'm wiff you all in spirit and here on Dogster. It has been difficult for mom to write for me lately, but she'll come around.

Ok I'm going to give my review of World War Z!!!!!
I had the banCam on big daddy this time around because mom gets too excited wiff these types of movies.
Here's my spoiler alert. If you don't want the spoil then stop reading this.
Okay... This movie is filled wiff action!!! Nonstop action. Dreamboat Brad Pittis the hero of this movie and you puppers who love to run will love this movie because all brad does is run run run!!
So the world is going crazy and zombies are taking over! How this happens is just crazy to me. So the peeps try to get away from the zombies and Brad tries to find cure.
Now the best part. One pupper who played a key role in the movie. No it wasn't a Basenji:? Shock.
It was a chihuahua! Yes a chihuahua! Can you imagine? AND IT WAS ON A PLANE!!! Now mom and dad told us that we couldn't travel because we couldn't fly first class in the plane but yet this chihuahua was roaming around the plane and not staying seated and no one seemed to mind!!! Why? Because its small and weighs 6 pounds? Well I happen to know that my dad would pay three times the cost of a ticket to get me on. Yet here's this dog running around the plane and making a nuisance of himself. Ugh
Well anyways that was the last scene for that pup. I guess I'm glad he was in the movie but I think I would have been better for the role. After all I once alerted my mom to a potential fire in our garage wiff out yapping my mouth like that chihuahua! I used my nose and she got the message and I saved the day.
so the movie was good even if the chihuahua was in it and not me. Not that theres anything wrong wiff Chihuahuas. For pups who love to run well this is the movie for you.
I give this movie four pieces of kibble ;c; for the action and because a pup got a leading role and held their own wiff Brad.

My pain is gone. My family is crying. I'm not here wiff them anymore. Tears .. so many tears they shed. I just stared into their eyes wanting to make it better for them, but I couldn't. Something got inside of me and made me hurt and not be myself. I wanted to come home wiff my mom and dad..and Talker too, but they said I couldn't. I had to stay. My face was wet wiff tears. I've never seen them cry so much. I could only look into their eyes and try to comfort them. Dad kept telling me how much he loved me. I'm his Princess. I'm his Baby Girl. He kept telling me good bye. Mom stayed behind and I sent her all my 'senji powers to her to tell her that I didn't want her to cry. She kissed me so many times and then said "Until We Meet Again Banban". Every night she would say to Talker and Me, "tee you in the morning". She didn't say those words this time when I went to sleep.
She sent me on a journey. I'm scared. My Angel friends, she said, will help me find my way. She said I will see Casey the Cat and she and I will wait together for my family to arrive one day, but Until We Meet Again, I will love them from afar. I will love them inside their hearts. I will love them always for making me feel better and free of the Cancer.
I'm sorry Mom and Dad and Talker too that I couldn't stop your tears. I love you.
Mom says when she finds her voice again...I will be back on Dogster. Until We Meet Again....remember me!

Some of you may know that I've been going thru a tough time lately wiff my health. One thing after another. Finally they figure out what is going on wiff me...Stump Pyrometra. Left over tissue from my spayed 8 years ago grows back and gets infected. The infection is serious and isn't just a UTI like the vets believed. So I have surgery. My pre test for surgery show I have elevation in my liver. So while having my surgery, the vet takes a few samples of my liver and lymph node which appears to look odd.
Friday the 13th...yes, Friday the 13th of July, my mom picks me up after spending two days in recovering. She is anxious to get me home but the vet wants to discuss the biopsy results. CANCER.
Here's my mom: I swear I didn't EVEN think this was coming. I was totally blindsided. The vet had given me his initial findings right after the surgery. He said were no masses on her liver and I let out a sigh of relief. So when I picked her up, I was not prepared for the Big C. It whacked me like a ton of bricks.
So I was thinking okay, they caught it early. The doctor said he didn't think she had the cells very long. BUT then he tells me that treatment is not cure and that her chemo would not give us the honor of saying, "she's five years cancer free!". Nope. It will only prolong her life until (maybe) one year at the most. I could hear my heart breaking and feeling those words sink thru me.
And my husband Angel loves her soooo much. He's never felt that way about a "dog" before. He knows the love of a child but he could never understand the love he knows now with her. All he knows is that she is his baby girl and his heart is feeling the pain of this news deeply.
Savannah aka Banners! will continue to feel our love for her. We will do what we need to do to fight this cancer. We will cherish the coming days and even the slightest passing moments with her; always.
She is our silent Basenji. Always watching; listening; never making a sound. But she understands the language of love. She speaks it loud and clear. We know she loves us and will trust us as we make this journey together. She gives us so much of that love.

WOW I can't believe it! Finally I'm DOG of Something! I've never been dog of anything before and here it is. Talker was Dog of the Day once and that's only a day and I made sure he didn't go over the 24 hour period. BUT ME!!! I'm dog of the WEEK! I don't know what this enTAILS...hee hee, get it enTAILS? But I'm gonna be sure to promote my status as must as I can and milk it for whatever it's worth.
Thank you DOGSTER for recognizing me and all my efforts in trying to keep Dogster going even in the face of that other FACEpage thing that the hoomans have deserted us too. I will do my best to uphold the duties of being Dog of the WEEK!
I've been going thru some trying times these last few months and this has really helped me get my mind off of what may lie ahead.
So thank you Dogster Academy for selecting me to do the honors of being Dog of the WEEK!
Talker, eat cheese! No wait...don't eat cheese. I'll eat the cheese, you eat pickles!

So the trouble with rain for a basenji is that the pawrents constantly interrupt your sleep every time they think the rain has stopped. Yesterday we were bunkered in for the day because of the rain -- or so I thought. Every time the rain sort of stopped I was pulled out of my blankets and dressed up with harness and rain gear and dropped in my stroller and taken for a ride for a force out poop and pee.
First stop - the grass is wet and my paws are cold and I won't poop on demand and so we move on. Big Daddy plops me in my stroller and wraps me in my blanket until the next stop.
Talker forges ahead and clears the way. We growl at the bad humans who don't pick up their pup's poop and dodge the land mines.
Next stop Big Daddy places me on the wet grass and we have a stand off. I ain't moving and he ain't pulling. Mom calls out sweet names to me and pretends she and Tee are leaving me behind but I know the game. Heck I invented the game. It's a 'senji stand off and I've got the big hazel puppy eye liner eye and all I have to do is catch Big Daddy's attention and he calls out to mom, "She doesn't have to poop! Let's go back!"
A few hours later mom breaks my 'senji spell on dad. She tells him, "We need to go out again before it starts to rain!". Grrrrrrrr mom and her seductive ways. She's able to get dad up and out and me back into my rain gear and Tee into his four sizes too small rain gear. Grrrrrrrr!
This time mom takes the reins...or my leash. She believes she has the magic touch she says she can make me poop. We walk. We ride. We walk. We ride. We are running out of grass and the sky is turning dark and cloudy.
Finally I pull myself away from the wet grass and I poop on the sidewalk. Mom says its a winner and good enough for her because it's starting to rain. Fanfare! Applause!! Relief!
We head back home. The towel over my stoller is meant to protect me from the rain. My towel doesn't match my stroller. Dad didnt want to pay the extra price for the plastic rain protector that was built for my stroller; therefore I have a towel as a protector. It's ghetto but that's what I've got --- cheap cheap. It's Dad's doing and not my Mom.
Anyways we make it home and it's all good and I'm back in my snuggle spot in bed.
So the next afternoon we all head out for a poop and pee ride. I have to admit that I peed inside the house earlier that morning. Just as mom opened the semi French doors for some reason I didn't want to go outside with mom and Talker so I peed at the door inside the house Oh well. Let's not dwell on that incident. The point is while as we were coming home from our walk we noticed something up head.
Mom says, "Is that our towel? Is that Pumpkin's towel?". And sure enough there's my ghetto rain protector towel all soaking wet on the corner curb of Hastings Ranch and Alegria! Oh the shame and embarrassment of it all!!!! Big Daddy picked it up and quickly placed it on my stroller and hoped no one saw us! Ugh. But please...how could you not see?????
The trouble wiff Rain and a basenji is 100 times worst than any other pup because we have pride and dignity and yet we are forced to subject ourselves to the utmost humiliatlity by our pawrents.
As a basenji my poop is my business and not their business.
Little do they know that I knew exactly when that stupid towel fell off my stroller. I thought, "Yes! Now I'll get the real deal plastic protector on my stroller--mint condition!".
Ugh!!!!!! Foil again! Curse you Big Daddy!!!!!!

I've received so many power of the paws best wishes about my health that I thought I would update you all here in my dairy.
Last Wednesday I was rushed to the vet because my dad found me outside on the patio when he got home. No one knows how long I was out there. I was a "mess" when he found me. I've been having trouble keeping my balance and when I would topple over, it was often times very hard for me to get up. So...I fell over and Talker wouldn't pick me up!!!
Anyways, I was rushed to the vet which was upsetting b/c mom and I missed Survivor!! We never miss an episode! Plus I don't like going to the vet. Sorry Dr. Sullivan but it's true!
I was checked over by the neurologist team and was sent home wiff steroids, pain and muscle relaxer pills. I have spinal issues and because my Dr. Sullivan (who performed my previous surgery two years ago) was not in (she was probably home watching Survivor) I was given the medication and had to return on Monday.
Well Monday came and I was looking and feeling better. So Dr. Sullivan said that we're going to do the round of steroids and pain meds and then I have to go back when I'm off of them to see if there is any change. If things go back to how they were then I will have the MRI and then..... well we'll cross that bridge when we get there.
Mom got a call from the vet about my blood work. I have hypothyroidism. This is the one that makes you gain weight; however, I now weigh 18.7 lbs. I lost about 4 lbs because last year mom has cut back on our food. I've lost weight, but Tee hasn't. My enzymes are also elevated, but it could be b/c of inflammation or because of the steroids (although I haven't been on them very long) or it could be because of my thyroid.
So we'll have to check that too when I return to the vet at the end of the month and the steroids have cleared my system. It's confusing b/c I needed to lose weight and mom cut our food back, plus, b/c I haven't been walking much, mom thinks I've lost muscle mass. So it's hard to figure out the why my thyroid is off.
So until the end of the month, I will continue wiff my meds and hope for the best.
That's my update. Thank you all PUPPERS for thinking of me and showering me wiff love and rosettes!!!
