This game of TAG doesn't leave much mystery to a girl, BOL! What a fun way to learn about my furiends and give them some insight to my pawsonality...... TAG it is!!!

I Have Been Tagged By pals, Yoshi & GiGi....

***This is a game so others can get to know you. These are the directions...Your supposed to write 7 things about yourself and then go and tag 7 more friends and they will do the same.****

Here goes.... SEVEN SECRETS, outta da bag..... :)

1. I love to coax a play out of Molly

2. I have 2 shih tzu sistah's ~Molly, who I came home from da breeder with ~I adore her & I don't know life without her, and Isabella, who joined us four years later, just four and a half months ago. She is my partner in crime & I WUF her soooo much!!!

3. I have been traveling back & forth from Oklahoma to Austin, Tx. EVERY week, to help take care of Nanna, leaving little time fur Dogstah, hmmppff!

4. I LOVE to eat~ I get meals 3 X a day, so we don't overwork my liver.

5. Dogster is just about my most FAV place in cyberspace!

6. I WUF to play in da Snow, espec. when it's dry, not wet & mushy, who wants to be toweled off and combed out more than once a day!

7. I'm Mommie's Girl~ she calls me Grace of my Heart; she says I am her heart!

Off to TAG 7 furiends....


My first U.T.I. in 16 months, hmmppfff!

Mommie noticed me doing business more regularly, which fur me is unusual, BOL! She decided to watch more carefully, coz I'm not acting like myself, and write down the times of day and time the squats, etc., to see what our next move would be. I've had enough of'em to know. We drove home to Oklahoma from Austin, Tx., last Friday, but she had a late afternoon appt. herself. I did a multiple squat (2) on Saturday morning and she decided I needed a UA run, so she'd take a urine specimen, in on Monday. Instead of a two timer, like Sat. & Sun. mornings, I did three tries this morning and she's convinced, that I DEF have a UTI. I ran errands wif her this morning and little did I know, she brought our "kit" along. This consists of a long kitchen utensil spoon, a syringe thingie you use for liquid meds, a baggie fur the syringe filled with the sample and a double ziplock fur it and for our payment check and our info. to just drop off at da Vet. What a surprise when we got there and they are closed until the new year!!! Of course, she wouldn't make me wait, so we trekked off to da two Emerg. Vet facilities, in town, only to find they are after hr.s and only 24 hr. on the weekends. Mom didn't really have time to drive to the city, but was about to make time. Mommie decided she would first call one of her furiends who is owned by two male Frenchies, the Boys! Her furiend called the Boys Vet and they would run the UA fur mom! Woo Hoo!!! When we took it there, they took all our/my info. and Mom dropped off what I'll refer to as the ziplock baggie. :)

The Vet's office just called & as we suspected, I do have a U.T.I. This is my furst (UTI) in 16 months, since bladder stone surgery, August '07, hmmmmppppff! They have to actually see me, their policy, since they'll be dispensing meds, soI have an appt. @ 3pm today. Oh joy~more ppl to charm & kiss! The downside is taking meds during the holidays, but I'll comply~afterall, I'm a lil angel, heh heh heh!!

I can hear it now, my FAV command (Not), the 'Drink' command, will be coming my way a bit more often. I learned it during the midst of a UTI season in my life. We're saying a quick prayer or two, hoping I don't have any crystals in my urine.

I'm thinking I'm going to be (extra) babied and treated fur Christmas~Works fur Moi!!!

OMD! (rant coming on...) I'm a clean pup~right?! I have a standing appt. for my Spa Day @ da Groomers every single week. I don't complain; I'm a good girl. I wuf to see Diane; bark wif my Doggies. So what if I'm still scratchin lots of hair off, no topknot, sorta ratty lookin' behind my ears and front legs, chewin' some hair off those back legs too. I'm still clean and oh so soft! I mean, I know my mommie meant well, settin up dat appt. wif a specialist.... the Veterinarian Dermatologist... and He was really nice; I liked him alot. I gave him tons of kisses and he seemed to enjoy it~we bonded, you know? I was sorta digging hangin wif Dr. Crow.....

What happened next came out of left field. He prescribed antihistamines 3 X daily~ I'm down wif that~ a special cortisone lotion leave in conditioner, once a week, I can do that, AND a special shampoo twice a week~HUH?~did he say twice...... doesn't he know I already squeak? Rub a Dub Dub, twice a week in da Tub? Apparently now I'll be squeaky clean squared!! (Much to my chagrin) Since I'd skipped my spa appt. at his request, for the evaluation, mama took me home from da appt. and gave me a bath! I didn't see dat one coming?! Hmmppffff!

Here it is, da long weekend, I'm all cozy wif mommie and BOOM, she does it again. Add insult to injury~not only did I get that 2nd bath this week, but she took PIC's also AND posted 'em on my page. I felt like a baby burrito. I must admit, I smell lovely and I'm softer than cashmere! Ya think Molly is jealous? BOL!


What a Weekend!

Whew, glad it's Sunday so I can rest!! Friday was my 4th birfday :) I got to run errands wif Mommie and supervise her chores and kitchen activity while she got ready for abirfday dinner pawty. Turns out I was not da Birfday Girl?? say what? I did wear my new birfday cake tee, with little crystals that make it look like da candles are lit, tee hee! We were WILD with excitement when company got here, but wore ourselves out pretty quickly and slept till about 11:30pm, when everyone left. Mama made us go outside, but we went RIGHT back to sleep upstairs in da big bed.

On Saturday, we had MaidS of Honor duty for Bella Paige and ZeeZee's wedding, it was sooooooo very beautiful, romantic & festive. Auntie Sally & Auntie Annette made everything GORGEOUS~everything! I wish we could keep that white pumpkin coach and da horses, heh heh heh! They even had a special Angel Blessing and our angel Chloe' was a part of that!!!!! We were so tired at the end of the day, but it was a "good" tired, ya know? What a Glorious Day!!

Today will fly by and we'll have company tonight for an early Mother's Day, cause next weekend, furless Bro graduates college and furless sis and her hubby are moving! We better 'rest up' and Catch Ya Later!!!


Confessions of a Wild Child!

Not lettin' da allergies & scratchin get me down,BOL! There's plenty of time for raising cain all over da house wif Molly! Don't forget~ I put da WILD in Wild Child!! The sunshine and woofderful weather means more neighborhood walks~ Woo Hoo! The weekly baths are a big help and my body, all trimmed down, is TOO. Today was our weekly grooming. Diane, our groomer, told mommie that while Molly was on her table, and I was in the cage, she was sweet talking Molly and I started in with the conversational vocalizing~not your regular dog barks, heh heh! Hey~I want some of that too :)

Da vet called tonight, coz yesterday's urinalysis results came in and.... crystals are GoNe! Yaaaay! Both Molly & I have an appt. wif da Dogtor on Thurs. for bloodwork, AgAiN. It's been two weeks since the last results and they were outta control. We are confident, that wif the changes, we will show improvement. Gotta keep a close eye on da issues~ mama says the haircut makes it easier to "catch" a urine sample, BOL!

We've had some rain, on and off lately, and it's left some of my FAV things easily within my grasp.... yuuumboza~ WoRm JeRkEy! I dutifully drop it, when told to do so, but I have a confession to make~ I have gotten at least a couple, when da mama was distracted wif Molly. I am da Huntress~hear me
?slurp? heh heh heh! BOL! BOL!

O course, da mama doesn't think Im TooMuchToHandle! BOL!

Most of you have noticed da new "Do" I am sporting. I have been having extreme allergy symptoms and have damaged my coat and literally scratched hair off my body in a few places. Mommie sure misses my top knot! She had me trimmed up in a new LQQK, but I'm still scratchin. Da vet referred us to a Vet. Dermatologist that visits Oklahoma City once a month for a Skin Clinic, and I got the very last appt. for May 21 st. Help is on da way!! Woo Hoo!

I have had bloodwork three times this year and the last one wasn't acceptable, with a higher BUN and Bile acid and so mama made some adjustments and I had bloodwork again on Monday. We both did, because Molly's bloodwork had the same flucuations, but a little lower numbers, in the SAME areas. With both our liver issues and my Kidneys, we are careful about what we eat and take supplements. I had another urinalysis, which is routine for me and it revealed crystals~the first since my surgery last August. Should get some test results today! Lots of research goin' on around our house.

We are runnin around like wild girls, as usual. We've begun to have walks outside again, now that the temp.s are higher and the sunshine is calling us, BOL! Molly keeps trying to take our toys along on da walks... lately I think her name is "drop it". heh heh! (always by da front door :)

Till next time... XOXO!

The Way it is @ our house...

*Be on your way*

My dogs live here, they're here to stay. You don't like pets? Be on your way. They share my home, my food, my space. This is their home, this is their place.

You will find dog hair on the floor, They will alert you're at the door. They may request a little pat, A simple 'NO' will settle that.

It gripes me when I hear you say, 'Just how is it you live this way? They smell, they shed, they're in the way.' WHO ASKED YOU? is all I can say.

They love me more than anyone. My voice is like the rising sun, They merely have to hear me say, 'C'mon, time to go and play.' Then tails wag and faces grin, They bounce and hop and make a din. They never say, 'No time for you,' They're always there, to GO and DO.

And if I'm sad, they're by my side. And if I'm mad, they circle wide. And if I laugh, they laugh with me. They understand, they always see.

So, once again, I say to you, 'Come visit me,' but know this too... My dogs live here, they're here to stay. You don't like pets? Be on your way. They share my home, my food, my space. This is their home, this is their place.

(BOL! Gotta like that, dont'cha?)

Two of my furiends, The adorable & funny lil Boston Terrier, Willow and beautiful and smart Shih Tzu, Tuesday, have tagged me!!! Thanks fur choosing me girls!!!

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are Tagged need to post in their Diary, the rules and 7 Facts about themselves! Next, you choose 7 pups to tag. Send them a pmail or a rosette, to inform them that they have been Tagged and need to read your Diary for instructions. Wait for their Diary Response, then read and enjoy; you might find out something new! BOL!

Here are My 7 Facts:

1. I have liver issues. I am destined for life with a restricted diet. The good news is diet, medication and supplements can manage my issues. I have improved and am doing well. I'm a spitfire, once again!

2. I am a HOT dog, BOL! I love to lay on the tile... ahhhhhh, feels cool :)

3. Despite my independence, I need to know where my mommie is,& will search for her she is not in my line of sight.

4. I have become a chow hound. I practically inhale my food... even the temporary, yukky Rx diet ;) Quite a change from the first years of my life, when it was a struggle to get me to eat regularly/gain weight.

5. I am becoming less afraid of thunderstorms. If I am outside, it does make me anxious. Being inside is different. If I'm in bed, I can remain calm and go to sleep! Woo Hoo!

6. My backyard is the pawwwwfect place to spy on squirrels, they are usually in abundance. (Surely I WILL catch one someday?? Heh heh!! )

7. I like to nap and often lay on my back with legs sprawling, showing my pink tummy! (Hey, I told you in Fact #2 that I'm a HOT dog!)

These are my FURtastic friends who I am tagging:

1. Bella Paige
2. Abigail
3. Roxy from Missouri
4. Mato
5. Issy
6. Toby
7. Mischief
