We wanted a Dalmatian cos I ( Gemma) thought they were cute. We had a Airdale Terrier previously so we wanted a bigger dog. We went to the breeder and were going to take her brother but he was already reserved, and she was the next puppy to climb into my brothers lap so she became ours.

Bio:
Hi Im a Black spotted Dalmatian from Australia! I'm 12, so im a bit of an old girl. I love swimming and i love people and other dogs. Im a typical dally, and i love grinning , but no one ever seems to get a foto of me like that. I have a bit of a sweet tooth, and ill eat almost anything you put in front of me. Dinner left overs from my humans is the best!! especially when its bbq! Although bread rolls, i like to bury them! Im all grown up now so i dont tear too many things up these days, but i like to pull my carpet out of my kennel and flick it around! When i was a puppy iloved chewing everything, pulling washing off the line, biting basketballs andputting holes in them, chewing shoes, and eating anything. Now im a bit older i still eat lots, but i dont tear things up quite as much, although the paper bin and garbage bin has some pretty neat stuff in it..... These days i spend most of it lying in the sun or curled up in a chair. My hearing isnt as brilliant as it was and so all the humans manage to sneak up on me now! I have a little trouble with my hips, but after a few big stretches im pretty good :) Micky lost her battle with her splenic cancer and GVD with Torsion on Tues 24th August 2010, around midnight. She will be greatly missed, and always loved by anyone who met her, or had the priveldge of meeting such a sweet, gorgeous spotted girl. Godspeed Micky girl, love you always xoxo.

Mum called me on Thurs to let me know that my sweet dally girl crossed to the Bridge on tues night. She got really ill again with GVD, and her stomach had twisted..... there was no time left.

Mum was by herself cos she didnt think Micky would be leaving us that night.

Im stuck 5.5 hours away at uni for another week and cant go home :( God i miss her so much. I just want one more lick, one more tail wag, one more nudge..... I left my house, never thinking i would be coming home to no Micky.

i love you my spotty wally dog..... * cries*

 

Im getting excited!!!

So its my human friend Shays birthday today... he turns 24...... so it means in 3 days time, on monday, its my birthday!!!

And you know what? Im feeling pretty good, always got a good appetite, still running around, being silly..... Life is pretty good for me at the moment. Im waiting for Gem to feed me though.

Daddy thinks he really funny cos hes worked out ill come over for a pat when he clicks his fingers. Really its to headbutt his leg, pats are just added extras! Mumma keeps forgetting to feed me as soon as she gets up, and eats first, so i stand at the door and stare and whine at everyone untill they feed me!

People have started swimming in the pool again, and were making noise, so i decided to bark with them, and then Shay barked back at me - hes a very strange human!

Rumour has it, im going to the dog park next week.... im very excited!!!

And to think the vet said i wouldnt be here... Bah!!! Im 13 in 2 days.... Bring it universe, just try and stop me!!!

Im more resilient than you think. And im going to beat this tumour thingy, and you'll see. Im prettier, sweetier, and funnier and this silly little tumour doesnt stand a chance against my awesomeness ! :D

 

Sickies....

So, after the disaster that was July - i never ever want to go back to the emergency vet.

Im not saying it sucked - hell im still here.... If it wasnt for them i wouldnt of survived the distended stomach. And i wanna say thanks to mum and my human sister Gem for getting me there asap . I remember lying in the back seat of the car with Gem and her hand was so comfy...... But the vet was awesome, they even gave me a pink bandage with paw prints on it to hold the catheter-thingy in so the normal vets didnt have to put another one it.

And then to top it off??? There is a tumour on my spleen, near a blood vessel. Thanks alot spleen * glares inwardly* thats what the ultrasound the day after said.

Family decided not to operate on it because i was so sick, and the vet said i most likely wouldnt of survived - Im so glad i have a family who love me so much. They said that if i was going to die it was going to be with the people who love me :)
Apparently the vet though because the distended stomach squished my vena cava and where the tumor is - she didnt think i would survive over 2 weeks.

As you can see, its late October, and im still here. Im more tired than i used to be, and i get exhausted on walks, so i think im a bit anaemic - and so is my human sister Gem, so yay we have it in common. But i have love, cuddles, and im happy. and so far, no pain!

My human brother gets home from Europe next week... so paws crossed for me, i plan on licking him till there is more slobber on him than in my mouth :D and im going to demand pats from him, and cuddles. I know he is going to be happy to see me :)
