All Clean

Well I got my bath today. It's been a little longer than normal cause Dad usually does the bathing and Mom does all the grooming and hair trimming, nails and teeth. But Dad's knee is hurting real bad with a torn meniscus and he can't get down on his knees and Mom can't push on the side of the tubs cause of the arthritis in her ribs,so today Mom just stood in the tub with me or sat on the side. Dad helped do what he could and we all three looked like drowned rats! Then comes the going down to the family room to air dry. Mom put me on my grooming table and did a little grooming and trimming but most of that got put off until tomorrow! Boy do I smell good!!

Mom came up with a new contest/game that will begin on Monday and it could prove to be a lot of laughs! Hope it goes well. We start our 4th game of Bull's Eye on Monday too, furs seem to like that game pretty good. We've made some good friends on that game...some of the furs are hilarious! Gotta watch out for flying darts though or you could get an ear piercing that you weren't planning on, but it's still a lot of fun.

Tuesday Grama has her surgery. Mom & Dad will be gone to the hospital part of the day. I sure hope everything goes well. Daddy's Dad fell again and this time they had to put him in a nursing home to try and build up his strength, but he's acting real funny...well funny not in the laughing way. He's getting mean! Daddy's Mom is in the same nursing home with Alzheimer's. Getting old can really stink! Sometimes life is just so sad that you just don't know what to expect next.

Thanksgiving was fun for Mom & Dad, I couldn't go cause big dogs can't go in my human sister's house! It's in the rental agreement. Human sister thinks it's a really dumb rule, the dog can not go over 20lbs! I go WAY OVER 20lbs...4x, I weigh 80 lbs. Human sister said if it were and emergency I could go there, but Thanksgiving dinner wasn't an emergency! It was for me...I didn't get any turkey:o( But Mom gave me other treats, so I had a doggie Thanksgiving which isn't so bad since it was served up with a large dose of guilt cause Mom felt bad that I spent part of the day alone! hehehehehe

Well it looks like she's headed to bed finally, so go night my Dogster friends!

Today is going to be a long day. It's the day my Grama gets her cancer surgery done. I'm with Mom no matter where she goes. First she tried to read, then she tried to sleep, now she is in the office with me here at her feet. Grama's surgery is early, they all have to be at the hospital by 5:00am. I wish I could go and comfort them and help them pass the time! So I'll wait here for them...I hope all goes well...please let things go well!

It's late and Mom and Dad left at 4:00am to go to the hospital for Grama! Her surgery went well, found just what they expected! Thank You God! The took some lymph nodes and we'll find out in about a week if the cancer has spread. Surgery got done around 11:00 but she didn't get into her room until like 7:00pm...they didn't have a room until then!

Mom , Dad & I want to thanks your Furs and your human family for all the uplifting encouragement...all the prayers...you all are truly great! Thank you just doesn't seem like enough, but we are greatly blessed to have you all in our lives!

Good night all our Dogster pals!

Doodle Hugs & Love
Dandi, Mom (Pam) & Dad (David)

 

Tired

Our family needs a break! We've been hit with one thing on top of another! Dad's knee is really hurting him, all the stress has made Mom hurt even more than usual and Grama is not out of the woods yet!

I'm taking good care of Mom & Dad,but I can't get to Grama, but she knows how much I love her and that makes her happy!

We have a raccoon that's been coming around and I don't like it! The ones around here are mean and aggressive, and their pee carries disease that humans can get. Leptospirosis is in some animals urine and can infect pets and they can give it to humans. We live in Washington and we didn't have to have the shots for years, but now cases are on the rise and we have to be vaccinated against it!

So our place is a NO RACCOON area! Mom has a ton of autoimmune diseases
and my vet Sarah is concerned about the whole leptospirosis thing. We are so lucky to have Sarah in our lives, she not only watches out for me but my whole family!

Well, Mom's gonna try to get some sleep so I gotta run!

Goodnight all my Dogster Pals!

Gratitude

Some times we forget how much the people around us have done for us and then there are times that it is almost overwhelming...a wave of gratitude comes over you and you just have to say "thank you."

There have been so many loving, kind and knowledgeable furs and humans that have helped my family! Some times it's just a kind word, an offer of prayer, even a tiny pat on the back can make such a difference in our day. We never know or maybe most of the time we don't even know that we've lightened someones load or made them laugh instead of cry.

Pam, you have held me up when I wanted to give up, you've taught me how to do the things that I could never have figured out on my own. You never gave up on me when I wanted to give up on myself. Thank you!

Mer, you've allowed me the privilege of being a part of PNP and have taught me how to be an administer, something I never thought I would or could have done on my own. You allow me to ask the stupid questions, sometimes multiple times without giving up on me! Thank You!

And then there are the countless furs & humans who are holding my family up with prayer and encouragement while we walk through this hard time with my Grama and all that is happening to her. I can't tell you how much you all mean to me, and yet I have never seen any of you face to face, but you've still been there for me and my family! Thank You!

All of you have given me an attitude of gratitude! I can only hope that as I walk through this life I will do for others what you have done for me!

THANK YOU ALL FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE!

Goodnight my Dogster pals!

Doodle Hugs to you all!

Training

Mom & Dad are teaching me how to close the basement door! They already know how to close the door so now I guess I need to know too! They are hysterical to watch! I'm getting it but hey, I don't want to learn it too fast...their too much fun to watch!

Grama started teaching me to play dead a couple of years ago, but I wouldn't do it when Mom & Dad got home from vacation! Grama was frustrated with me...so much fun! Mom worked on it and I got it down good and she showed the grandkids! Now the whole time their here, they keep shooting me so I play dead, but I go and fall down on the carper, not the hard floor! I might have to play dead, but I'm goin out with comfort! BOL

Well, Mom's headed that way...it's about time Mom so I'll have to say "Good night my Dogster Pals!

Some days are diamonds or so the song goes...this one was- the stone

Sometimes it's just not worth it to get out of bed! That's my day today! Mom & I got up this morning and I had breakfast and started playing around with her and I smacked into my water and food dishes and kibble and water went everywhere! Mom said "don't worry about it, I've had worse things in my life...just today" as she cleaned it all up.

That being done we go downstairs to do laundry and Mom sprayed water all over the laundry room and I was in the middle of the laundry room. She dried the laundry room and then got out her hairdryer and gave me a once over.

Mom went back up to update some Dogster stuff and I hurled in front of the door cause she couldn't get to me fast enough. She wiped my face up and then cleaned that mess up. She apologized for not getting there in time, but hey what are ya gonna do?

It was one thing of another all day, so I'm being very cautious with my evening!

 

What Fun

Well, everyone is pooped! We had Christmas plays that 3 of the grand kids were in on Christmas Eve and then everyone (except Grama & Grampa) came over and we ate and ate and ate. Then came the best part, we opened our gifts! All 8 of the grand kids had open 1 so I figured it was my turn so I reached over and took one of T's to open! It was right next to mine so I got confused. I had to give it back...didn't want what was inside anyway. Mom said I had to wait for the kids to be done and then it would be my turn. When it was my turn I became wrapping paper's worst enemy! I ripped open all my gifts. I got 5 new stuffed animals to add to my collection! I LOVE stuffed animals and I never rip them up. I have all of mine since I was a baby.

Everyone had a good time, then the next day Mom, Dad and I took a bunch of goodies out to Grama and Grampa. Grama was sick so she didn't want us to come in and catch what she had, so I stuck my head out the window when she waved. I felt bad that they weren't coming with us!

Then it was off to my human sister's house for Christmas dinner. Dad took his guitar and amp so I knew there would be singing after dinner! There was one man there that I think was kinda scared of me because of my size. He kept saying "that's one big dog" and kept his distance. He told Mom that I sure was trained good and that his dogs never acted that nice. Mom said it wasn't her "good trainin" it was more that I am really smart. I think it it smart to listen and pleas Mom & Dad! I don't think he took a lot of time with his dogs, so it's really not their fault if they don't behave, it's his! I even got a small piece of prime rib...it was REALLY good!

 

Boring

Today has be LONG! Mom's still sick so there wasn't much going on today. She did brush me a little bit, and still got plenty of lovein, but things were very quiet. I barked at the neighbors cat and I think I may have scared 7 or 8 of his lives away, but he's ruined Mom's paint job on her truck, which she loves. When I barked it looked like he tried to go 12 different directions at once...BOL! I don't hate cats and Mom would never let me chase them, but I can bark to scare them home.

Dad came home but he's hurting real bad too, so we didn't play much. He played his mandolin for a short time while Mom updated her games.

Well, what a boring diary entry!

Mom's headin for bed so I gotta go.

Goodnight my Dogster & Catster friends.

 

My Birthday Party

January 30th 2013 2:26 am

Well here it is almost February and it's going to be a very busy month! Three of the Grand Kids birthdays and my birthday is in February too, not to mention Valentines Day! Busy, busy busy!

Mom is already working on finding party favors for my birthday party! She's gettin out my cookie cutters and looking for a good recipe for yummy doggie treats. She has a cookie cutters in the shapes for dogs:bones, paws, fire hydrant, and so on that she wants to use on the doggie treats. Then she gonna make a shortbread cookie with the same shapes for all of those who have thumbs!

She'll make my favorite cake...carrot cake and we have all the Grand kids over along with their parent and Grama & Grampa and we all have dinner together! She always makes homemade tacos!!! I love tacos almost as much as I love carrot cake!

This year she's looking for some games we could all play, hasn't found any yet! I go a new hat for this year. When Momma & Daddy went to Disneyland they got me birthday ears with my name on them, I can't wait to wear them. They are already sneaking gifts in and hiding them in Momma craft room so I can't go in there for right now.

It seems like February 22nd is a long ways away, but Momma says it will be here in no time! I hope so, it's so much fun having everyone her and playing, not to mention eating and the gifts!

It was bath night yesterday and I smell really pretty. The grooming and hair cut begins tomorrow. I like being groomed, I get Momma all to myself! tomorrow will be a girly day...hair brushed real good, hair cut and having my nails done. Sometimes when Momma's hurting too bad she make it a 2 day girly day. Daddy got her a grooming table that goes up and down so she can do a lot more than when she had to sit on the floor. She gets really stiff and has a hard time getting up, so the grooming table really saves her a bunch of pain. And going up and down on it is kinda fun!

Well, it looks as though we are finally going to bed so good night my Dogster friends!
