My Sweetest Sparkee Girl

Sparkee's mom here:

It is with a heavy, devastated heart that I come
here to Sparkee's diary to inform all her pals that
she crossed the Rainbow Bridge August 28, 2009.

Thursday I had gone to run some errands, so I don't
actually know when or what happened.
When I get home, the first thing I do is let all the pups
go out to do their "business". When I let Sparkee go
out, she seemed normal except that she looked kinda
scared but I chalked it up to the lightning. We all
came in and I fed them. I think she ate but I'm not
100% sure because I was watching some of the others
to check if they were eating or not (sometimes some of
them decide to turn up their noses at what I'm serving!)
so I could pick up their bowls and put them up on the
counter. I don't want one of them to go eat someone
else's after they're done with theirs.

Anyway, as the night progressed, she started acting
weird. She started panting and acting nervous and
walking around like she needed to get somewhere
quick. She walked to a corner and was at a loss so
she sat down and cried. By this time, I'm freaked
out. I decided that she should sleep in the crate so
she maybe could feel secure. This morning she was
crying and howling (she never does this) to get out.
Her back was to the door and when I opened it she
didn't turn around. It was as if she didn't know
where she was or how to get out of where she was.
I patted her and called her name but she wouldn't
turn around. I finally got her out and carried her
outside. When I set her down she walked around but
I noticed that she was stumbling a little. I knew
something was horribly wrong when she ran into the
fence and the van and the tree and everything else. I
knew then that she couldn't see anymore. I knew she
probably had a stroke when I had been away for a while

I had been planning for sometime on taking Keighty to
the vet but now I knew that two pups would be going
instead. I felt down deep in my gut that the situation
with Sparkee didn't look too good. And I was right.
The vet said that it was probably a stroke or a brain
tumor and with her age she would be getting worse
instead of better and no meds were going to help her.
So her dad and I made the very hard decision to have
her put down.

They gave us time to be with her and we told her that
she was the best dog ever. She was never mean to
anyone dog or human. She was always happy in any
situation. We never had any problems with her ever.
And I thanked her for all this. I told her through my
tears, that we loved her and we were sorry that we
couldn't help her this time. I kissed her over and over
but I don't really think she had a clue what was going
on. I don't think she even knew where she was.
Then the vet came in and as her dad was holding her,
the vet started to do, you know. I thought I could stay
through the whole thing, but I just couldn't. I went to
the next room but I could hear the vet say she was gone.
That's when I really started to cry.

She was with us for 13 years and she really was the
best dog. She was the sweetest, kindest and happiest
pup up to Thursday. It happened so fast and she got
worse so fast. I knew with her age that one day she
was going to get sick and I would eventually lose her,
but this was just so unexpected. It totally threw me for
a loop.

Thank you, Sparkee, for the 13 wonderful years you
spent with me and for loving me.
I will forever love and remember you.

National Tell a Joke Day today

My contribution:

A man takes his Rottweiler to the vet and says,
"My dog is cross-eyed. Is there anything you can do for him?"

The vet says, "Well, let's have a look at him."
So the vet picks the dog up while examining his eyes.
Finally he says, "I'm going to have to put him down."

"What?! Just because he is cross-eyed?!"

"No, because he's really, really heavy."

Molly wrote to me and sent me this joke. We thought
it was funny even if mom took forever to get it!
Sheesh, mom, what is your problem??! What is so
hard to understand? Then she laughed at the joke
and herself 'cause it took her awhile. She didn't
snap that the rooster was saying this.

What do you get if you cross a cow with a spaniel,
a poodle, and a rooster?
A cockerpoodlemoo!


Happy Birthday to me!

Well, pups, today's my birthday. I'm 14 years old and
my mom's bummed out 'cause I'm getting older and
older and older. Seems like just yesterday I was a young
pup moving in with this family. It was just me and
Wishbone back then. We ran around. We played. We
acted silly.
Now we're stiffer, (Wishbone more than me) slower,
and a little deaf. We sleep alot more.
Old age! Man, what it can do to you!
But I still Rock when I'm outside running around and
barking at something. I don't act very stiff and slow
And I'm still loved. Still looked after. Still spoiled but
in a different way. Now mom has to be more careful
when she picks me up. She makes sure the other pups
don't bump into me and she pushes them aside when
I go out the door.

I'm still happy so Happy Happy Birthday to me!

Maybe some of you pups have tried this new name game.
If you go to Redford's diary you can find out how to get a
new funny name, too.

My funny name is:

Snickle PottyFace

Heeheehee! That's funny, huh?

Playful foster pups

Well, mom put up some videos on my
page of the foster pups. Always playing.
Sheesh! I remember the good ol' days when
I used to play that way. *Sigh*.
Just a distant memory now . . .

Anyway, there's one of Conner and Diamond Lilly.
We had her for about a month. She's a real cutie!
She and another pup we had for about a week
are out on a trial basis but we think that the
people will make it official. We are so happy
that they are adopting both. They really loved
Diamond Lil and Cody. A picture of him will

Then there's one of that pup, Chelsea. She and
Conner loved to play. Mom sees her every
Saturday at PetsMart. She goes to puppy
classes there and that's where mom takes the
foster pups to adoption clinic. Seems mom is
going to puppy sit her in October.

Hope you enjoy the videos, even if I'm not in them!


Just A Quote

"The eyes of a dog, the expression of a dog, the warmly wagging tail of a dog, and the gloriously cold damp nose of a dog were, in my opinion, all God-given for one purpose only--to make complete fools of us human beings."

~~Barbara Woodhouse~~


What is my mom thinking?

If you check my pictures, there's some of another foster in our house. Poor pup. She needed help, so my mom said yes. She couldn't go to the other foster homes 'cause they had pups that ended up with parvo in the past. They survived. Those homes are "contaminated". I wonder how long it takes for all that yucky bacteria to go away?? Well, anyway, she's probably going to be adopted Saturday. She's not that bad. She's about 3 or 4 months old. She was kinda shy at first, but being here, she's learned how to socialize a little better. She had been in a shelter for 3 months before coming here. We're glad that we're able to help.
