Arrival Story: I was born in Kansas on the 4th of July, 1998. Shortly thereafter I was relocated to Wayne, NJ to be placed for adoption. It was at that time I was introduced to my daddy. First time we met I untied his shoe laces, and that's when daddy says he knew I was the one! I guess you can say, I picked daddy. That was the best day of my life, it was then he took me to my forever home where I still reside in Hudson County, NJ.
Bio: I'm learning how to spell. I know lots of words, eat, out, bye bye in the car, Frosty Paws etc, my family figured if they started spelling I wouldn't know what they are talking about. HA, what they dont know is they are teaching me how to spell. I'll teach them! ***
Paws had surgery on Feb. 16, 2007, to have 6 masses removed all of which we are happy to say are benign. After all he's been through he is a trooper. He was so brave, we are so proud of him!
Hi Everyone, sorry we haven't been around much. Things have been hectic here as some of you know. Just wanted to stop by to say hello as mommy has been getting messages and email's from you checking in on me...long story short, I've been a little under the weather.
On Easter Sunday mommy found I had a wound on the backside of my leg. turns out it was infected and I have been taking antibiotics for the last 3 weeks. The wound is looking great, I have hair there again! :)
Also wanted to let you know mommy is taking me to the hospital first thing in the morning for xrays of my belly and chest. I obviously can't talk so everyone is trying to find out what's going on with me as I have been eating very little. Mommy has tried everything from switching my bowls, food and under doc's care giving me med's to try and increase my appetite. Physical turned out ok, blood work came back ok....Doc says we need to do the xrays now as nothing else has determined what's going on with me, doc told mommy I might have cancer but to know for sure we need the pictures. Mommy's says she will keep you all posted as to the outcome. Lots of doggie slober kisses to you all!
Hi Everyone, GREAT NEWS...I went to see doc yesterday with daddy and mommy. I passed my physical with flying colors. Doc just called daddy....all the blood work came back ok. Doc says for now we keep an eye on me and if this should happen again for us to try to video tape it via camera or cell phone so he can see exactly what happens. In addition (as some of you had said) keep count of how long it lasts. For now we wait and see....
Thank you all for your well wishes, prayers, rosies and emails. The POP really did work for me.
Mommy said, all she wanted for Christmas was for me to be ok...Merry Christmas Mommy!!!! We Believe :)
Hi Everyone, well I scared mommy to death last night and I made her cry...not on purpose because I love my mommy. Just about 11:45pm last night I had a seizure. My mommy never seen that before and for her to see that happen to her baby she was very scared for me and upset. It didn't last long but I did roll and thrash around from one side of the bedroom to the other. In the end mommy was so scared she called daddy and the 24 hour emergency hospital. Mommy told doc what happend and doc confirmed. Doc told mommy there is nothing she could do for me except to wait it out and wait for me to come out of it. Doc told mommy not to touch me during a seizure that I could hurt her very bad by biting her...I would never hurt my mommy I love her too much but doc said I could do it not knowing. Doc also told mommy to remove everything from around the house that I could get injured from during a seizure. Mommy thinks I hit my head on the night stand and the fan...we arent sure as I was thrashing all around the bedroom and hit just about everything. Mommy will be staying home with me today to keep an eye on me. Doc says I will do alot of sleeping as one of those seizure thingys takes alot out of us. I need to go get some rest as there wasn't much sleep going on in this house last night. I also want to thank Luis for laying on the floor with me and hugging and petting me after I woke up from my seizure...of course I was being a ham and wouldnt let him leave me :) and daddy and Adam for all the text and phone calls checking up on me while they are both out of town. I have the bestis family! :)
We will keep in touch and let you know how things are going after we try and get some sleep.
