Arrival Story: Jethro was the only surviving pup from his mother, Lola, and his father, Darrel, both who suffered sudden deaths in July last year.
Jethro was completely bottle fed, and during the ups and downs of that, totally wormed his way into the hearts of myself and all my employees.
Bio: A true survivor, Jethro was much too small to be a show dog so he became everyone's pet! Spoiled rotten, his every first was recorded in his original Dogster page and he now has millions of pals in the Dogster world.
Jethro is shared between me and his co-owner, Auntie Jeanne, as was his mother. He is currently with her in Northern NH, so his only Christmas photos will be as a baby pup.
Yup, you heard it first from me, I did indeed choke and Mom was pretty worried, let me tell you! You see, I am like my mother Lola and I am always chewing on stuff. Usually I chew on safe stuff, but I do have a particular fondness for water bottle caps.
Last week I was innocently chewing on a bottle cap and Mom told me to drop it. I sometimes listen, but I often do NOT listen and this being the latter, I raced under the table. Mom came after me so I did what any self respecting Frenchie would do...I swallowed the bottle cap.
Alas, it got stuck right in my throat and I started coughing and gagging. Mom was a bit concerned so she tried to pry open my mouth and reach in. I was scared, so I tried to bite her fingers off. Mom wasn't sure what to do so she was going to call the vets when I started turning blue and couldn't breathe.
She grabbed her keys and threw me into the car and raced up the hill to the vets next door. She grabbed me and ran inside. The receptionist was trying to ask her what she wanted but Mom just ran right by her and went out back and yelled for someone to help her.
The vet came over and she also tried to open my mouth and put that tooth pincher thingie on my teeth but she couldn't do it either. So, she told Mom they would have to knock me out. Mom said fine, so she was getting the stuff to inject me with when I realized they said "Knock me out!!!" Immediately, I gagged and coughed and Mom was surprised to find a bottle cap right on the table!!!
But, I didn't get away without a shot, darn it all. The vet said the cap was all bloody which meant it had scratched my throat so I would need some antibiotics...ie., a SHOT!!! Yes, it HURT!!! Then, she gave me some nasty tasting liquid to coat my throat and sent me home. It was very exciting but I was exhausted so when I got home I went right to bed! Mom said that was a good place for me.
Hi friends and pals. Finally, today, Mom got a much better recording of my talking. I was down at the big yard playing with Auntie Jeanne's new lab puppy.
AJ and Mom were talking and AJ was holding me and I was tired and thirsty and wanted to go home so I started telling them about it. Did I get to go home???? NOOOO, Mom just started videoing me and of course, it took her about FIVE tries before she got one she liked.
If you could have seen the rejects... you would be puking because Mom moved the camera so much that watching it was worse than riding on a Roller coaster!!!!!
While you're checking out my new video be sure to check out my new photos... you will have to use the photo viewer since I have MORE than ten new ones, hehehe... I was quite the photogenic star today!
Auntie Jeanne said she would take me home to her house for the Summer soon but first she needs to deal with the new Lab puppy...sure, I could HELP her deal with that puppy, doesn't she know that????
Today I went along to work with Mom cuz my Auntie Hilda was visiting for the day. Mom put me in the daycare pen with her and I stayed there almost all day.
Riley joined us cuz he came to work to get groomed and when that was done, Mom put him in with us.
Anyway, she and Laurie were headed into the break room for a break and both Hilda and I were begging them to let us come to. Did they??? NO WAY, instead Mom got her phone out and she and Laurie video taped our talking.
It wasn't fair, though. By the time she did the video, we were mostly just barking to get them to let us go along with them. Auntie Hilda did some pretty good talking in the beginning, and I managed to talk up a bit toward the end, but Mom said it really isn't that good.
Mom put it on my page but she said she is going to try to get a better one where I am REALLY talking!
