Arrival Story:
our old dog, ochinee, crossed to spirit last spring. I began to have panic attacks when my husband was at work. we decided a new dog was what I needed and with so many of my family having allergies we decided on a poodle. we also started traveling more so we decided on a small one that can go as carry-on if we fly. after a search online, looking for a dog we could drive to and get (I just was so paranoid of sending one flying alone in cargo) we found cocoa with a breeder in rhode island. we actually saw him at 9 days old and again a week later! at 6 1/2 weeks we went to pick him up. it was a 6 hour drive from our home to his breeders and back but the photos and videos from each trip are cherrished. and my panic attacks? well, I know he can't save me, lol, but just having him here has stopped them. and now warns me when someone is near. such a good boy!

Bio:
I went to puppy kindergarten and passed! and I am litter box trained! my breeder put a box down for me when I was just 5 weeks old and I've used one ever since. I love that I don'thave to go outdoors in the bad weather, especially when it's so cold!

woof,
I am so glad to be ok again. the last few months have been really tough.
first I had to go with my new little sister for shots. but while we were there my momma told the vet that I had been scooting on the rug so she decided to check out my bum because I was clear of worms. OUCH!!!! did I scream! that hurt!
she told my momma that I had an infection in my anal gland. sheeeesh. so we went home with antibiotics and pain meds and I had to take them and go back. when I went back she made me cry again and I still had an infection...more meds!
finally it went away.
then momma found a lump on my side. it was there about 2 weeks so she called the vet again and we went in. this time I saw a different vet. she was nice too but she stuck a needle in my side! she came back and told momma something that scared momma really bad. I needed to have surgery so the next day, before I could even eat my breakfast, momma took me to the vet's and left me there. I don't like that. why would she leave me there?
well I found out soon enough. I was put to sleep, and they shaved a circle of my fur and cut my side open and took out that lump and then put stitches in me!
momma came back and got me later that day and again I had meds to take.
finally, after about a week, the results of the test they did on what they took out were back. momma was so relieved. she was afraid I might have something called "cancer" but it wasn't. the vet said it was something called a fibrous nodule and that mine was very strange and rare but that I don't have to worry about it any more. then I went back to see her again and she took the stitches out and said I was fine.
whew!!!!

I'm sure glad momma has stopped being so worried about me too. it bothers me when she is upset. I tried to make her feel better but sometimes that seemed to make her even sadder. I don't know why. I'm sure glad things are getting back to normal!

woof, I am not the happiest dog in the world, but I'm happier than I was a couple weeks ago.
momma and daddy took us to the vet for our nasty old shots, and while we were there she told the vet I had been rubbing my butt on the rugs. since I don't have worms the vet checked my butt (boy did that hurt!). sure enough I had a problem so my vet put me on antibiotics. I had to go back again and it was another hurting check up. more meds and home again. at least it was getting better.
I'm not done with my meds yet but I feel a lot better and I don't need to "scoot" as my vet calls it any more. the worst thing is I still have to go back for her to check it again. I HATE THAT PART!!!!!!
momma holds my face and talks soft to me and kisses me and loves me and tries to help me feel better but it's hard to not notice what's happening at my butt! I sure hope this is the last time I have to be checked like this!
but on a happier note...I wuv my baby sister, rosie. she's not so bad, except she bites once in a while when we are playing, or if she wants to play and I want to sleep. but she really is sweet and I've decided she can stay. :)
well....nap time in front of the fire. bark at ya later!

hooray for me! it's my birthday. I'm 4 years old now and I RULE!!!!
not sure what momma has planned for me today but I know we'll have fun.
now that I have a new brother, pepper, I have someone to play with when momma and daddy run errands. of course he isn't loose in the house like me right now. he still has accidents once in a while. but soon he'll be able to be loose when they are gone and then we can really play.
so much has been going on that momma hasn't been able to help me write here. there have been lots of birthdays, and all sorts of time with family. it's been busy but we've gone camping a couple of times and I love that.
well, gotta run and see what I can get into. it's my birthday so I can get away with lots today. don't want to waste that!
woof!
