OMD!! In just 5 minutes it will be Christmas Eve!!! I am so totally excited!! Santa Paws is coming!!!!!!!!!

I think I am going to get some good pawresents cause I have been a good boy all year!

My leg is feeling better, but I am still not allowed to do too much. Mommy and daddy did take me and Dixie on a short walk the other day and I did good with that! Now it's really not fair cause Macy gets to go on long walks with mommy and daddy all by herself! Boo!

Well, better get my teeth brushed and hop into bed!

I hope every dog and cat have a warm cozy Christmas with their family!!!

 

Maniac, The Bum Wheeler

Yup it's true. I am a bum wheeler. For those who don't know, that means one of my legs isn't working too well!! It all started almost 2 weeks ago, on the day Dixie went to the ER. When mommy ran home to let us out while Dixie was gettin her x-rays, I tore accross the yard after Daphne. That night, I was limping, and sometimes not putting weight on it. By the end of the weekend though, I was doing much better, and through the week, it got back to normal. Then this past Friday, we went to the groomers! I got so excited to get there, that I (Richter's mom here- he acted like a maniac trying to get out of the car, and he hurt it again!!!). So what if I get really excited to see Mary!?!?

Anyway, by the time I got into the groomers, I was hobbling again, and not really putting weight on it at all! Mommy and daddy decided to see how I did during the weekend and take me to the vet if it wasn't any better. Well, gladly, I have been getting better each day! Now I am almost back to walking normal!

It stinks cause I have to go outside to potty on my leash, no walks, and mommy and daddy block the stairs when they are not home so I can't tear up an down them chasing the UPS, Fed/Ex, DHL men through the house! I spend my day tearing up and down the steps and leaping onto the backs of the couches when ever any trucks go by the house!! (like I said, he's a maniac!!) But I am not allowed to do that now either! I guess it is worth it if my leg gets better!

I did have a little fun last Wednesday though! Mommy went to BJ's and brought home a huge bag of paper bathroom cups! She left them at the bottom of the stairs to take up when she went up there. I saw them there and decided to have a little fun! I tore open the package and proceeded to throw the paper cups all over the floor! Mommy came in and couldn't believe what I had done!! (She knew it was me cause the package was between my front feet and plastic was all around me!). We usually never do things like that!! But I guess when you are bored, anything goes! Hope Santa Paws missed that one!! BOL!

 

Our Crazy Weekend- Richter's Story

I guess you have all heard about our crazy weekend so far! Macy kicked it off on Thursday with her belly, Dixie provided the main event yesterday afternoon with a trip to the ER vet. Here is my part!

When mommy came home yesterday after leaving Dixie at the vet for testing, she let me and Macy out to potty. Daphne was out behind us and we both took off!! Tearing up and down the fence!! Mommy made us come in but the damage was already done!

A little while later, when mommy got home with Dixie, she noticed me limping on my back right leg again! This is the same leg I had a problem with when I found out I have lymey the tick dizeeze. I must have re-aggravated it with my tearing up and down the fence! So now I am on rest, no walks. leash pottys, the works!!

And now our kitchen cabinet looks like a pharmacy, with Sophia's meds, my lymey the tick dizeeze meds, and all 3 of Dixie's meds that she has to take for the next 2 weeks, along with her GCM regimen!

Mommy says we are going to get vet bills paid off for Christmas and thats it!!! I told her that is not true cuz santa paws will bring us stuff!! Duh!

 

Coffee Foot

Every morning mommy gets a cup of coffee at Dunkin Donuts. On the mornings she doesn't have to work, she always takes Dixie with her, and sometimes me and Macy. Last weekend, daddy was workin on Sunday, so mommy loaded us all in the car and we went to Dunkin.

Now let me tell you real quick what a ride in the car is like with us. Dixie always sits in the back. She either sits up and looks out the window, or lays down on the seat. Macy sits wherever mommy or daddy put her. If they put her in the front, she sits there, if they put her in the back, she sits there. The only time she moves is if mommy or daddy put the window down, and she sticks her head out. But for the most part, you don't even know they are in the car. I am a different story. I usually hop into the backseat, then get in the front til we are ready to leave. I look out the window and will put it down myself if mommy doesn't have it locked. I ride like that til we get on the main roads, then I hide on the floor behind the drivers seat. If we stop or slow down, sometimes I climb up to see where we are, then go back on the floor. When we get where we are going, Macy and Dixie wait patiently until the are told to get out, except mommy or daddy usually have to lift Dixie out, especially if we are in mommy's SUV. I however, like to be the first out of the car. If it were up to me, I would crash over whatever is in the console onto the lap of the driver and then dive out of the car the second the door is opened. Mommy and daddy are real pains though, they don't let that happen. They make me sit and wait til they tell me I can get out.

Now back to my story, the other day when we got home I got so excited that I climbed in the front seat, but when I did, I accidentally stepped on mommy's coffee and to my horror the lid crushed in and the side of the cup tore a little and my whole foot dunked right in the coffee. Mommy (besides being really mad at me) was pretty surprised that I didn't even seem to notice, cause the coffee was pretty hot!! But I just went about my business, waiting to be told to get out. To this day the car still smells like vanilla coffee when you get in!

I had a nice turkey day! We watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and then went for a walk. Mommy and daddy brought us back a bag full of turkey from grandma and grandpas, and we had some in our supper and in our breakfast yesterday morning! And guess what else?? We are having a second Thanksgiving tomorrow! Mom-mom is making it and we are going over there!! I can't wait!

I was tagged by my furiend Hershey!! You pups know the rules, list 7 fact about yourself, then tag 7 others!

Here goes:

1) My newest fact is that I was just diagnosed with lymey the tick dizeeze. I have to take medicines for a month!

2) I am very shy around strange people, especially men.

3) One of my best furiends in the whole world is the girl who brings our mail. Her name is Kim and boy do I love to see her!! Me making furiends with people is a VERY big deal!!! (see #2).

4) One time Dixie and I got into a fight over a chewie. I got so upset I dry- heaved in the corner of the room!

5) Sometimes I fall asleep while I am squeakin one of my toys!

6) When we are in the car waiting for mommy or daddy I hide under the steering column. So from inside the store you can see the brake lights on the car flashing on and off.

7) I was born in Montana!

Now my seven furiends are:
Spencer, Larry the Dude, Ollie, Milo, Odysseus, Calli, and Bella

 

A Month Of Pills

Daddy got the call yesterday that my lymey the tick dizeeze is alive and active in my blood. That means that I have to take an anty-by-ot- tick for a whole month! I have to take 2 pills everyday. Last night was my first dose. Mommy carefully wrapped my pills in some pieces of chicken, so it really wasn't too bad! Actually, I enjoyed it!

Mommy says this explains some things. It definitely explains my limping. Also, mommy wasn't sure if it was in her head or not, but she thought she noticed that I had slowed down just a little bit recently. It seemed that I would tire out quicker on my walks, and I was starting to have a little trouble hopping on the back of the couch. These changes were so subtle, that mommy wasn't sure if she was imagining them or not. But that is what seems to happen with doggies that have lymey the tick dizeeze.

So for now, I am taking my walks with Dixie until I get some energy back! Hopefully it will be soon!!

 

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You pups won't believe it. My doctor called up my daddy today and told him that my blood test came back positive for LYMEY THE TICK DIZEEZE!!!!!!!! WAAAAAAAAAAAH! I can't even believe it! The scary part is that we wear Frontline Plus religiously!

Let me backtrack a bit to last Wednesday. I mentioned that I had a vet appointment. Mommy took me. The vet checked my lump on my side, and he said he doesn't really think it is anything to worry about right now, probably just a fatty tumor. He measured it with a ruler and wrote down how big it is, so they can keep an eye on it. Then he checked my legs since I have been limping on and off. He felt my hips, knees, tendons, ligaments, toes and my pads. He said everything felt fine, so he thinks I just pulled a muscle. I have to go out to do my pottys on my leash for a week and take an anti-inflammatory for a little bit. Other than that, I checked out just fine, and I got a shot.

Mommy bought a package from the lab the vet uses. They run 3 tests, one to check my blood for lymey the tick dizeeze and hart wormys, one chem panel on my blood, and a dump check (thats when they check your poops!). The vet called daddy today with the news that I have the lymey tick dizeeze. The only thing they aren't sure of is if it is dormant or active. So daddy gave them permission to run a more involved test on my blood to find out. If it is active (which might explain my limping), I have to take medicines for awhile:(

Oh well, my daddy had lymey the tick dizeeze a few years ago, and so did my dog cousin Nikki and my pal Milo. I saw on Milo's page that he got a lymey toy when he found out. I better get one of those!!

 

Under The Weather

I have to go to the vet on Wednesday. When daddy was brushin me the other day, he found a little lump on my side. Mommy says it is bigger than a marble, but not quite as big as a golf ball. It can't have been there long, because I am always getting brushed and at the groomers and stuff, and we just noticed it. So Friday morning mommy called the vet and got me an appointment. Her and daddy were feelin it and stuff and it didn't hurt, I didn't care when they touched it. It feels a little squishy.

Also, a few weeks ago, mommy and daddy noticed me limping a little bit. I only did it occasionally and for about a day, and then it stopped so they just figured I pulled a muscle or somthing. But after my walk yesterday, after I would lay down for a bit, I would hold it up when I got up, and have been limping since. It seems to be the worst when I get up after laying down for awhile. Dixie had the same symptoms before they put her on her GCM regimen, so mommy started me on that. It is just a glucosimine and chondroitin regimen, so it can't hurt to try it til I get in to the dok-tur.

I am a little nervous, but mommy said not to worry, she will be with me the whole time. I might have to get a needle though! Yikes! That's ok. I'll be brave! I'll think about the Phillies and the big parade they had the other day! BOL, there were about 2 million people out to celebrate them winnin the World Series, and that's no exaggeration! We watched it on TV while we handed out candy to the trick-or-treaters! It was a special day!

Everyone around here was crazy excited, and ready to PAWTY!!!! But halfway through the 6th inning they had to suspend the game!! ARRRRRGH!!!!!!! We have had horrible weather here, that started that night! Temps in the 30's-40's, heavy rain, sometimes freezing, and really strong winds!!
