Today was groom day for me, daughter Georgie and our new sister, Sandy. We couldn't come last week which was our scheduled day because it was toooo cold to even go out to the car. It was MINUS 14f at the time we were supposed to be there. Brrrrrrrr. I would have hated to have Tonya's icy cold hand giving me my shampoo, and Mom putting that icy cold cleaner stuff into my ears.
Today it was only 8 below zero so we still came.
Mom did feel a bit sorry for us I guess because she got three of our old winter coats for us to wear home. I got the nice hot pink one, but Georgie ended up with MY faux fur favorite coat! It was the only one that fit her fat body, hehehe! We gave Sandy the down filled one because everyone knows down filled makes you look fatter!
Anyway, after our groom was finished we took a break with Mom and Tonya. We enjoyed running around the old stomp in' grounds again...at least I did but I think Georgie might have thought we were gonna have to stay here!
And, we even got a visit from Moms friend, the dog lady where me and Georgie stayed when Momsie went away and Georgie was but a baby. It was nice seeing her again.
Fortunately, Mom didn't suggest we head down to the lab pen...she would have found out I am more of a lady now and I do not do cold outdoors anymore. My NEW Mother gives me peepee pads so I don't get my tootsies cold.
Well, gotta go home now, see ya next month.

Momsie decided to use some of our old Halloween photos on our pages because she said it takes FOREVER to put photos on right now. Since she says it takes forever to dress us all up and get presentable photos, she decided to just take ONE forever and put the photos on.
It only took her THREE hours, no kidding, three hours!!!
She says she has blisters on her mouse finger because she had to click so many times. First, you have to go from add photo to account to add photo to account to live page to add photo until you FINALLY get a place to add the photo that doesn't say you can't add anymore. Next, you have to do the same and go from one to another to another to another until you finally get to the photo manager without it saying you don't have plus. Next you number the new photo, then click save. BUT, if you aren't lucky, it will tell you that you do not have plus again and also, ALL your captions will be missing. THEN, you have to carefully back out until you get to photo manager again with your captions, NOW you have to also click display on all your photos over ten since somehow, someway that has gotten unclicked.
Get the message???? Three hours to load sixteen photos. This is dedication or stupidity!
On another note, Mom said my son Tanner is visiting with her for a few weeks. It seems he has started having some pretty severe seizures. The first one happened outside, just at dusk. Susie and her new husband live in the boonies in Northern VT and it was only 20 degrees and after his seizure he was disoriented and scared and wouldn't come to her and he RAN OFF DOWN THE DIRT ROAD!!!!
They looked all night and listened to the coyotes howling and the foxes yipping and assumed if he didn't freeze to death, he would get eaten.
After looking and looking, they finally gave up at nine am and went home. Within a few minutes there was a scratching at the door and he came in, filthy and wet and cold and hungry, but ALIVE!!!!
Mom said one seizure was okay but when he had another one just five days later and once again wouldn't let anyone touch him after, they decided to get some testing done. This time he WAS inside since he now only goes out with his leash on!!
Because Susie just moved there and doesn't know any vets they decided it was best for Mom to take him down here and use our vet next door. And, they have all his records anyway.
Mom said so far he's been fine BUT it is even more scary after what happened to Bubbles!

Yup, it IS true. There was a tragedy at work and Bubbles, my cousin from Kansas who lived with my daughter Georgie and their friend, Sandy, were here for grooming. Bubbles has been here living for five years, then she has been with these people for another three years and has ALWAYS been healthy and happy.
Well, for whatever reason, while Mom was grooming her she had a seizure and DIED!!! Mom almost died herself, never, EVER has that happened in over 40 years of grooming dogs! The vet is right next door to our kennel and Tonya raced up there with Bubbles because Mom thought she might still be alive but they said she was not. It was awful, both Mom and Tonya were crying, then when Mom called the new owner they were all crying again.
Well, her daughter called and asked Mom to PLEASE, PLEASE find her mom another dog ASAP. Tonya suggested Mom send Ali to them... this lady is a PERFECT owner and besides, she already has my daughter and Bubbles and I were just alike and loved EVERYONE and Mom said OK. So, when the lady came to get Georgie and Sandy Mom asked her if she wanted to try me. Suddenly, everyone was crying again, and the lady said she would be honored to have me and was really happy Mom let me go there.
Mom said it was very hard but she knows I will be the center of attention there and I really do deserve that! Mom said I was one of many here and it was selfish of her to keep me when this lady and her grand kids will dote on me day and night.
Soo, off I went! I am coming in for grooming next week and I will have another diary about my NEW life!! Besides, it will be nice to see Georgie again, I missed her.
