   Leave a bone for Hope a.k.a. Puddles

Puddles, Puddy, Puds, Pud, Phyllis Diller, The "bully",

Quick Bio:
-purebred-disabled -dog rescue

Her Liver Shunt medications and low protein diet kibble. Attention from everyone and all other animals in the room! Will wiggle and WHINE for it!!! ANY toy and any piece of clothing that will embarrass you if company is over!!!

Being stuck in a Vet Kennel for more and more tests, surgeries, etc. The vacuum is something to run away from and an excuse to lay in her humans bed, until the coast is clear!!

Favorite Toy:
ANY toys - will chew through a bone is record time like a wee shark and will suckle and tear all fuzzies from all plush toys! OH too many things to mention!

Favorite Food:
Her kibble!

Favorite Walk:

Best Tricks:
Wriggling her way into your heart; if you are ever angry with her, she will give you the most SAD look and melt you away! She makes you smile everyday!

Arrival Story:
Hope's story is a long one....she is a rescue that was given chocolate, dark chocolate cookies, candies etc....and brought to a vet .. set up on IV and was slated to be PTS until Catherine at www.CanadianYorkshireTerrierRescue .com received a call - requested a liver shunt Bile Acid test ASAP, low protein food and proper Liver Shunt medications!!!!

Her first Liver Shunt was fixed Valentines Day 2005, but, she has never returned to normal ,nor have her Bile Acids lowered, they actually went up. Radiographs and an ultrasound noted that there was turbulant flow around the vena cava where her first liver shunt was repaired with an Ameroid Constrictor. This little trooper went back into surgery to see if this could be 100% fixed and close it off completely and unfortunately, it was discovered that Puddles has acquired shunting. There is SOOO MUCH more to add here as April 13, 2006 Puddles came back home from surgery again. Nothing else can be done to help her other than maintenance. She may have a short lifetime, but, we will be diligent in keeping her on special Liver Shunt kibble, Medications, and repeating tests to ensure she stays with us for as long as she can! Her liver biopsy showed that she MAY not have Hepatic Microvascular Dysplaisa (HMD/MVD) and there is no liver scarring, but, it did indicate that her liver cells and vessels were not as big as they should be. Pud also developed an eye ulcer due to her surgery or due to a hair stuck in her eye and is also on ointment for that as well. You can donate to OTHER rescue dogs' vetting fees by logging into your paypal account and sending your donation to cytr.info@gmail.com. Puddles is a true LOVE BUG and she truly brings so much joy to all those to whom meet her. We will make sure that her quality of life is the highest and the best of the best....She gives us so much more than we could ever give back!! Such is the life of such a wonderful companion!! Thank you to all her Pup Pals !!

Tis the time of year that I get to roll in the grass or where ever - on dead worms and bugs!

HEY - something is amuck 'round here and Pekoe is avoiding me like the plague. I keep hearing that Pekoe and Fuji are going to celebrate their Birthdays - June (29th) and I am going to help them celebrate VERY WELL!

I get to eat my own kibble due to having Liver Shunt as I watch the "Boys" eat special treats from our human-mom....(like they all think they are fooling me? I LOVE my kibble anyway!)

OF COURSE big ole Pekoe hopes for birthday yummies and something called Pup Cakes or mom's homemade doggie cookies! He is the treat machine. Fuji and I just love to get those massages and brushings....Pekoe hates it...! I do see the comb and brush and am soooo excited in hopes that I get to have an extra long massage today, even though it is not my birthday!!

I am here with one eye open for "ACTION" to get into the mix of things. Dare anyone leave me out - I AM the centre of attention and if you do not believe me - come see me in action!! I will wiggle my hips and whine with excitement as though I am always "looking for love". Humans just giggle, pick me up and just give me some lovin! I am a wriggly little one!

Off to enjoy sun bathing and lounging (although they say I look like road kill, when I do that in the sun, as I sleep with my eyes open) :o)

Life is a party all day every day in this very Merry Herd of Terriers!


Tessa Help! Is Santa a safe person?

Mom clicked on the website www.canadianyorkshireterrierrescue.com and clicked on the Santa Photo Link on the lower left hand side... to bring up a great poster !

Mom informed Pekoe - 'tis the season to meet Santa. Said she may bringing our Santa hats too. I'd prefer a Bow so I can tear it out and play with it, incase of boredom! Nov 18, 2006 at Global Pet Foods in Brampton, Ontario! It's a photoshoot with (or without) Santa for PETS !!!

Mom said that her email said that Santa is making his list and checking it twice and we were all on it!! Y-E-A-H

Mom is calling (905) 495-4455 and booking our photo sessions because we all support rescue, Canadian Yorkshire Terrier Rescue...that is where Fuji and I came from. And I got to play with allot of our friends through CYTR! The boys and I got together and we all think this is a great idea!

Pekoe's diary has most of the details....I am just excited to get my first diary entry!

Mom will be writing more soon, I just had an ultrasound and I do not feel 100% ....these things called Liver Shunt and multiple acquired shunting ,over my left kidney area, are really taking a toll on me. Everyone thought the first one was fixed, but, my body decided to differ. I am not in pain.

p.s. - I also miss playing with Tessa! But, glad to see her on Dogster now! Mom!! Where is the video of Tessa and I playing??
