Arrival Story:
We had one Japanese chin and decided he needed company when we are gone to work so he wouldn't be alone all day. We checked out breeders on the internet and found one that had Japanese Chin puppies. We ordered a puppy and a couple of weeks later we went to the airport to meet our new little Chin. He was so scared he was shaking, he was all buried in shredded newspaper, just his little head sticking out. He was so tiny and just adorable, we could hardly wait to get home so he could meet his brother.

My Update

Hi all my furiends, we are missing all of you but mom is so busy still. Mom and I just wanted to let you all know that things have not changed a lot with my CHF but my dogtor says that mom and dad are doing a very good job. I know sometimes I don't make it easy for them. They are unhappy that I refuse to eat dog food, they are still cooking me liver, chicken and turkey legs. Sometimes I won't eat the food they cook for me either and it scares them. Getting pills down is a battle every day. They give me peanut butter, cheese, lunch meat, and whatever else they can think of. I hear they are going to get me some baby food next. For the last few days mom has been noticing that I haven't been pooping. she thinks my diet of meat, meat, and more meat is the problem. Dad called the dogtor and she said to give me some pumpkin twice a day so today we started that. Mom says we will find a way to get fruits and vegetables down me, she is determined. I had a bad day today, I've been coughing a lot. Yesterday mom took me and Sarge to the dog park. Since I was having a pretty good day she let me walk more than she usually allows so today she is blaming herself because I am not doing so well. I don't mind riding in the stroller but walking and being able to check out who's been marking my trees is lots more fun than just sitting and riding over the bumpy paths.

Dads new knee is healing and he is getting another new knee in october. Mom is still struggling with getting housework, laundry and yard work done but dad has started helping a little. Well, I need to go rest now, but I want to make sure you all know how much we love all our furiends. Thank you, my furiends, for the prayers, we appreaciate them so much. Loves and Licks, Toby Jo


Not Doing Well...

Mom thought I should write an update so our furiends will all know we are still here. We want to thank everyone who sent presents and comments and pictures and paw mails, we haven't forgotten our furiends and we just love all the gifts and comments for Sarge on his gotcha day and Sammy on his Rainbow Bridge day and also his barkday. and all the POTP and prayers for me. Mom says I am very sick. I've been to the vet 3 times now, first she gave me lasix, the next visit she increased the lasix and the last visit, just a couple days ago, she said she can hear crackling in my lungs which she couldn't hear before. I also lost 4 pounds but mom said that's because I had so much fluid inside me. She gave me 2 more perscriptions, one is vetmedin, for my heart and the other is enalapril also for my heart. She said my heartbeat is weak and the medicine will help make it stronger. Mom took us to the dog park and I had a real hard time. I made it to the small dog area and laid down in the shade. Mom stayed with me there and held me while my human sister took Sarge and Izzy and Tinker for a long walk around the park. I couldn't quite make it to the gate when we left to go home so my human sister carried me to the car. Mom and dad are worried and sad. Dad called the dog park today and asked if they could bring the doggie stroller for me so I can still go for walks in the park. they said that will be fine so I might get to go tomorrow. Well I better go rest now, thank you all again. Licks and tail wags from Toby and mom


An Update Fur Our Furiends

Hello our dear furiends, mom wanted to send out a thank you to evfurry one that sent my brudder Sammy Jo beautiful rosettes and messages for his 5th Rainbow Bridge Day. We all miss him very much and we love you all for thinking of him on this sad day. Mom is going to try to send out better thank you's to all of you but in case she just can't get to it she wanted me to let you all know that we read them all and we will cherish the love and compassion attached to each one. Thank you...

As for mom she is very busy, Dad had his knee surgery and is doing well but he's in lots of pain yet and mom is busy taking care of him (and me) and doing all the things that dad used to do around the house. She says dad did a lot more than she realized and she's exhausted! She's struggling to keep up with house work, laundry, yard work and planting the flowers she bought over a week ago. Plus taking me and Sarge to the dog park when she can squeeze in a little time. Grocery shopping is a problem, she puts it off everyday until it's dinner time and then runs out to get take out for her and dad saying she will get groceries tomorrow but when tomorrow comes the same thing happens. Dad has a lady come once or twice a week, she's a nurse and a guy comes three times a week and makes dad hurt. He makes dad do physical therapy. But, each day dad gets better and mom says once the pain goes away dad will love his brand new knee! Dad says he will take a break before having the other knee done so he can do some golfing and take us to the dog park.

And then there's me. My CHF is worse, I cough most of the night but not as much during the day. Mom is taking me back to the dogtor to see what can be done to slow the progress of this horrible sickie I have. Her and dad are so worried when they hear me coughing and sometimes I see moms eyes get wet. When mom takes us to the dog park we only walk a little bit then we sit for awhile so I can rest. It takes us two hours to get through the whole park because we spend so much time sitting. Well mom says I better end this because it's time for my medicine and time for all of us to go to our beds for the night. Mom says as soon as things calm down around here we can get back to Dogster, we are hoping that will be real soon!
