Happy Thanksgiving

Our pal Bella posted this in Schnauzers Rule today. So true and great for reminding us to be thankful for us pets!
~~~
Happy Thanksgiving to you. Thanksgiving is here - a time for family, food and football and the day set aside to give thanks for our blessings. Although world events may try to interfere with our feelings of thankfulness, it's necessary that we focus on all things good, and as always, what your pets add to your lives is good.

Here are six reasons why you should be thankful for your dog:

Love. If there's one thing you know, it's that your pet loves you. And if you love your pet, that love comes back to you tenfold.

Companionship . Your pet keeps you company, and that company helps you to feel less lonely and isolated, especially if you live alone. Coming home to your pet gives you something to look forward to.

Physical contact. When your dog nuzzles up next to you or licks your hand, all is right with the world. Studies prove that cuddling and stroking your dog is good for you; it makes you calmer and can even lower your heart rate and your blood pressure.

Someone to talk to. Talking things out relieves a lot of internal pressure. But having someone to talk to makes a difference, too. It makes you feel less lonely. Talk about anything - your pet will listen.

Motivation to exercise. Most pets need exercise every day. Whether it's walking your dog, to tossing a ball to your dog, you'll be getting some exercise, too. Physical exercise helps you to deal with stress and sometimes gives you the opportunity to get outside and breathe some fresh air.

Security. Some pets promote a feeling of safety. Your dog barks when he hears something out of the ordinary. But sometimes just having your pet nearby is enough to make you feel less anxious and more secure.

This Thanksgiving as we gather together to give thanks for our blessings, let's not forget our pets, those faithful companions that are such an important part of our lives.

Happy Thanksgiving!
~~~
And us pups are thankful for all that our pawrents do for us. And for our guardian angel sister Annie who looks after us. Licks and tail wags to all!

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference.

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

Just sending some love to you on your birthday! We miss you so much but know you're in safe keeping with our human brother Andrew looking after you. Tell him that you can now have all the ice cream and cake and treats that you want - BOL!!! Mom says it's ok for you. Darn, we don't get any here. Enjoy your party at the Bridge sweet sister.

Sisterly schnauzer love,

Precious Pet Time

This is posted in one of my pal's diary CASH

Thank you Cash for sharing this with all of us. It is and you are precious!


Precious Pet Time


I am your dog, and I have a little something I'd like to whisper in your ear. I know that you humans lead busy lives. Some have to work, some have children to raise. It always seems like you are running here and there, often much too fast, often never noticing the truly grand things in life.

Look down at me now, while you sit there at your computer. See the way my dark brown eyes look at yours? They are slightly cloudy now. That comes with age. The gray hairs are beginning to ring my soft muzzle. You smile at me; I see love in your eyes. What do you see in mine? Do you see a spirit? A soul inside, who loves you as no other could in the world? A spirit that would forgive all trespasses of prior wrongdoing for just a simple moment of your time? That is all I ask.
To slow down, if even for a few minutes, to be with me.

So many times you have been saddened by the words you read on that
screen, of other of my kind passing. Sometimes we die young and oh so quickly, sometimes so suddenly it wrenches your heart out of your throat. Sometimes, we age so slowly before your eyes that you may not even seem to know until the very end, when we look at
you with grizzled muzzles and cataract clouded eyes. Still the love is
always there, even when we must take that long sleep, to run free in a distant land. I may not be here tomorrow; I may not be here next week. Someday you will shed the water from your eyes, that humans have when deep grief fills their souls, and you will be angry at yourself that you did not have just "One more day" with me. Because I love you so, your sorrow touches my spirit and grieves me. We have NOW, together.

So come, sit down here next to me on the floor, and look deep into my
eyes. What do you see? If you look hard and deep enough we will talk, you and I, heart to heart. Come to me not as "alpha" or as "trainer" or even "Mom or Dad," come to me as a living soul and stroke my fur and let us look deep into one another's eyes, and talk. I may tell you something about the fun of chasing a tennis ball, or I may
tell you something profound about myself, or even life in general.
You decided to have me in your life because you wanted a soul to share such things with. Someone very different from you, and here I am.

I am a dog, but I am alive. I feel emotion, I feel physical senses, and
I can revel in the differences of our spirits and souls.
I do not think of you as a "Dog on two feet" -- I know what you are.
You are human, in all your quirkiness, and I love you still.
Now, come sit with me, on the floor. Enter my world, and let time slow
down if only for 15 minutes. Look deep into my eyes, and whisper to my ears Speak with your heart, with your joy and I will know your true self. We may not have tomorrow, and life is oh so very short. --

Love, (on behalf of canines everywhere)

I thought you might want to read and ponder the message this little dog is sending (in between the tears) and forward it on to those you
cherish.

Dizzy Dame!

That's what mom calls me now. It seems to be a permanent state. I have to stay on meclizine all of the time because I seem better on it than off. It's supposed to be for nausea and vomiting, which I haven't had in a long time. But every time I come off of it, I start getting vestibular symptoms again. My neurologist can't explain it, but she said if it helps, stay on it. But she doesn't think I have anything like a tumor (whew!!!). So we're checking out a few things. But for the most part, we're just going with the flow. I still enjoy my walks, cuddles with mom & dad, and eating. And I'm still playful. So mom's not complaining! Afterall, I'm doing pretty well for 13 years old!!!

 

Anything for a treat

Yesterday, Finnegan was playing with his agility equipment and I usually demand to go over the jump bar so I can get a treat. Mom always says "Georgie, you're 13 years old, still have vestibular symptoms and a little hip arthritis on one side, I don't think you need to do this!" She finally gives in. She places the bar at the lowest setting (only an inch or so off the ground) so that I'm not really jumping, just running with a little hop, a lot less than going up the stairs into the house. But then she'll only let me do it a couple of times. I look beautiful as I sail over the bar, and stand up tall and demand my treat. Afterall, I was bred to be adored by all! I can always talk mom into giving me a treat especially when I do something adorable!

Missing Andrew

Today is 1 month since Andrew was taken from us. It's been hard on mom & dad. We're all staying close and giving lots of love.

My vestibular problems are kinda better. Mom is going to take me to the vet because it seems something is acutely going on with my vision and hearing. We hope it's just old age.

We are also so sad to hear about sweet Miracle and all her medical problems. She is all about love and sweetness. I know her mom is happy she is back home, but it's such a scary thing to go through. We hope she recovers without any more problems.

We're so sorry that Jetta so quickly followed his grandma to the Rainbow Bridge this week. Also, our friend Elsa crossed the bridge 1 day before her 15th birthday. This week was Lexie's 1 year anniversary of crossing the bridge. She was Annie's BFF, so we sent lots of love to her mom.

Lot's of change going on. PoP helps everyone get through these things, and kindness. It's nice to have friends.

Georgie

 

Improvement

Last night I went on a walk all the way around the block! I tumbled a couple of times when stepping up onto grass that is higher than the sidewalk, or uneven ground. But on sidewalks I was fine. Since I lean to the right, I approach trees on my left and I don't run in to them! My symptoms seem to be lessening. No more nystagmus, only the head tilt and lean to the right. Mom doesn't need to carry me around so much but is still close to make sure I don't get hurt. I can even go up and down the 2 steps at the back and front doors without falling. And like we noticed, I learned to compensate last time so it's not so scary. If the door is open wide enough I can start at one end and can get down the stairs while moving sideways before I fall off! And of course leave room for those pushy boy dogs. Just goes to show how smart us schnauzers are! Last time my symptoms lasted 2 months & started with a hospitalization. This time I may be over it in 2 weeks! Woo hoo!

 

A little better this time

My symptoms aren't as bad as they were last time with this darn dizziness. I can eat and potty so that's a big improvement from the last episode. I'm back on my medicine so no nausea or vomiting this time. I learned last time how to compensate most of the time so it's easier this time around. I take a few tumbles on uneven ground (usually lawns or when I try to sniff trees - mom always worries about me hitting my head!). But I am able to navigate up and down the 2 steps to the backyard and front yard without hurting myself. And I can walk my whole block, although I get tired and have to rest a couple of times when the dizzies really get going. Mom leaves the light on for me at night so I don't get so disoriented. We really have a good system down for coping this time! I haven't gone to the vet yet, but mom is thinking about it tomorrow just to make sure everything is ok. Otherwise, it's just waiting out the symptoms. I'll be glad when I can go off my block back to my regular route!
