Since our pages and diaries are going away (*sniffs!!*), mom made me a blog. It's http://laceytheschnauzer.blogspot.com/. Thanks Whitley and Finley for pointing me in the right direction! Now how can I get a "follow me" button?!? I gotta sniff this out....


Sad about Dogster and In the DDP Loop

Mom and I are super sad about the Dogster community going away. She’s been a part of it since 2004 (!). She shared her upsetness last night on the book of faces (tm Fizzy), like a lot of other Dogster parents. She’s glad she’s friends with many of my pup pals’ parents over there so we don’t lose touch. But she’s sad cause she’s losing my page, my angel siblings Shakey and Sydney’s pages, my fursibs Adeline and Samson’s pages, and even the pages of her foster pups who came before me. She likes to look at those pages and think about, happily and sadly, the doggies who’ve come and gone in her life. It makes her smile and laugh to look at photos and read adventures of our pals as well as random pups. Where are we going to read about our pals’ (mis)adventures now?!? :( And even though I haven’t pawticipated much in Schnauzers Rule lately, I liked dropping into the game forums and saying hi to my pals. The Rainbow Bridge Angel Babies group helped mom when she lost Sydney and especially my furbro Shakey (we really miss him). We feel like we’re losing a friend. :( Even though mom’s on FB and joined the Dogster-related groups, she wants to make me a doggy page somewhere but she’s not sure where; I’ve seen doggyspace and blogspot recommended (the latter from Finley and Whitley), so I dunno…. I always have lot to say!

Mom’s started copying and pasting our diaries into word documents so she doesn’t lose all our stories. Which is a nice transition to say thank you again for picking my diary today! Now I know what it’s like to be in the DDP loop!


Diary Pick and Thank You!

Woof! I’m a diary pick today, thank you Dogster! Thank you to Drei Snarky Schnauzers for my snowflake (we had a bunch of snowflakes falling from the sky this morning!), and belated thanks to Mini Mischief for my snowman. Oh! Can’t furget all my pup pals who sent hot cocoa, cake, and balloons to me, my angel siblings, my cousins Addy and Sam, and the foster pups who stayed with mom before she adopted me. Whew! Thank you everypup!

I’ve been eating ok, the usual mix. Last night I wanted to eat, so mom heated up dinner on a plate and placed it on the floor. I hesitated, so she put Charlee Bear treats on it. I hesitated a little longer and sat on my bed. So mom brought the plate of food right in front of me in my bed, and *then* I ate it. BOL! Do I know how to work her or what?!?


Chronic colitis

So my worrywart mom took me to the vet yesterday. She was worried that because of my vet visit in July (colitis), my e-vet visit a couple weeks ago right after xmas (painful intestinal gas), and me having some icky poo on Sunday night (sorry mom, whether you gotta go at 2am or 5am, you gotta go!). She wanted to talk to the vet about further testing to see if anything might be wrong in a bigger way than blood tests have shown (they showed nothing was wrong, woof!). Luckily, the vet said nah, he didn’t think it was “in my best interests” to do an endoscopy or anything else crazy like that. (Crazy is my word by the way, BOL.) My weight’s leveled off around 9lbs, and the vet thinks my two big episodes were because of stress. (Mom did go away for a week in July! Sheesh!) The vet said even though I traveled to a familiar place (my grandpawrents’ house) in July and xmas, the physiological stress of traveling on my senior self makes my insides not feel so good. (Sorry grandpawrents!) The vet said I have chronic colitis, gave mom some metronidazole to give me if I have another icky poo episode, and gave me some fiber-rich prescription kibble to add to my chicken, rice, scrambled egg whites, and Wellness kibble.

This morning I ate a bunch of prescription kibble and chicken, which I picked out of the rice and eggs cause, well, I just wanted chicken. And of course mom was ecstatic because I ate. She’s so easily amused, BOL.


I’m better and pawsome dogsitter!

Hi pals!! Thank you for your PoP!! I scared mom to pieces, and she cried with relief at the e-vets when they just said it was gas and tummy issues. (She worries a lot, as you all know.) I’ve spent the last couple weeks eating chicken, rice, and scrambled egg whites. YUM! Those first few days home, I was asking mom for seconds and thirds and she was practically crying with happiness cause I was eating so much. My usual doggy kibble (Wellness) is being mixed in now and I’m eating it too, and it even tastes a little better because of…

My pawsome dogsitter! So a few days after my e-vet visit, mom went on vacation with a friend. They’d been planning the vacation since last year; it was not a dog-friendly vacation cause they flew to a resort on St. Martin where they didn’t accept pets. Geez. Anypaw! Mom left me under the pawsome care of her fiancé – oh, that’s another thing I gotta bark about! While mom was gone, he cooked and fed me chicken, rice, and scrambled egg whites, and he started putting water over small amounts of kibble and warming it up, so it made gravy and softened the kibble, then he mixed it with the human foods and I gobbled it all up. He even texted and facebooked mom photos of me eating, and I could hear mom squeeing from St Martin, BOL. So he made my kibble easier to eat. Sometimes he’d even put a drop of ketchup in the kibble/gravy mix to add a little flavor. He’s grown up with pets so he knows how to make their foods better. He also stayed at the house with me and I got to snuggle with him in bed and he is warm, so that was nice too. He’s a pawtastic petting machine and pet bed (I like laying on his tummy). I appawrove! BOL!

I hope everypup’s been staying warm! I’ve got an electric blanket that mom’s been putting on top of my bed, and then I lay on that; mom let me keep that blanket and got a new one for her. Between mom and her fiancé, I’m a little spoiled princess, which is how it should be, BOL!

I've eaten a bunch of chicken, rice, and scrambled egg whites today. This makes mom very happy. I've also taken my pills in peanut butter pill pockets and mom doesn't have to shove them down my throat. This makes both of us happy, BOL.


Gas and upset tummy

I gave mom quite a scare last night. I was restless, clingy, couldn't get comfy, panting occasionally, itching, sitting back on my haunches, just being weird. So mom and her bf took me to the e-vet. They took bloodwork and x-rays. The e-vet saw a lot of gas in my large intestines and, I think, my colon as well. My pancreatitis test was "normal" and my bloodwork was "boring", and mom was happy about that.
The e-vet gave me a pain shot and medicines to take every 12 hours. Oh, here's what the paperwork says: I'm being treated for "mild upset stomach and increased gas in her intestinal tract." Yuk. I didn't want to eat this morning, but mom and her bf keep trying to feed me egg whites. I;m alert but still kinda stoned and I don't like it one bit. In fact, I'm grumbling about it right now. Oh, here comes mom to pet me.. score! BOL

p.s. Mom's bf posted this on mom's book of faces post about me:
"This is basically Lacey right now:

Funny walk dialogue

Mom and I were talking our morning walk, and as always I'm sniffing at everything and braking and backtracking and sniffing and crossing all over the sidewalk and sniffing, the usual walk stuff. A young man passes us and asks "He calling the shots?" BOL! First off, I'm not a he, as my pink leash should show you. Secondly, why is that in the form of a question?!? BOL! It's a declarative sentence! I AM calling the shots! Silly peoples.


Howliday cards and thank yous

Mom finally got them printed! She used a local business so she feels all self-righteous and stuff, geez. (Actually, her bf recommended the printers, interacted with them, and picked up the cards. Oh, he also designed them. He's not so bad, he feeds me people food and pets me and has a pawsome lap. Anypaw!) She should be mailing them out next week, and she apologizes if they don’t get to our non-U.S. furiends in time. It’s all her fault. But, we hope our card makes everyone laugh and smile (it makes me smile just thinking about the subject – you’ll see! BOL!). It’s been a ruff year for many of our furiends, so we hope we can bring a little cheer.

Thank you to all the pups we've gotten cards from so far! Mom opens them in front of me and reads them to me while I sniff them. (I sniffed Harley Davidson's card really well, BOL!)


Electric blanket

Brrr! It is cold here!! My fleece sweaters and doggy blankets aren’t quite enough, espawcially since I like to sit by the drafty windows and look outside (I am head of household security after all!). So mom gave me her electric blanket. I lay on half of it, and mom curves the rest of it over me like a cave. Toasty!
