I tried to add the update to the last entry, but I kept getting an error, so just decided to write a new one so ya'll would know what's what.

The vet just called and all of my blood work is "outstanding" to use her term. She said there were a few crystals in my urine, but unless I'm having other problems--frequent urination, urination in the house--there's nothing to worry about. Mom told her we slept in the lv rm last night and I just basically crashed. She did A LOT of manipulating to me and with the blood and urinalysis tests, I was wiped out. I'm still kind of sore today too. She told mom to keep me off the bed (the jumping to get in and out is bad all the way around), give me TLC, give the pain pills thru the weekend and we'll see how I do. The limping could all be from the cervical spine problems I have. She said the next thing would be to refer me to a specialist to get a 2nd opinion and then on to a MRI. Mom read the booklet she got with that "Platinum CJ" and the reviews from customers was very encouraging. We're starting me and Austin on that tonight with our evening meal.

Once again I want to thank each and every one of you for your kind words and strong POTP. We'll be updating you as we go along.


Vet Again...

I was limping real bad again yesterday after doing so good for awhile. Mom went and picked up some anti-inflammatory meds, then this morning she was going to help me out of bed so I wouldn't put my full weight on my leg/paw and I yelped when she put her hand under my arm. Then when I finally got down, I yelped again. Mom fed us immediately so she could get the medicine down me to help with the pain. Afterwards I was sitting next to her on the couch, and she went to put her arm around my shoulder and I yelped again. She tried again after a few hours when we came back inside, and I yelped. So mom called the vet immediately (around 8:30) to let them know she finally found out where the pain was --left shoulder so that if they needed to take more x-rays I'd have to get there long before 3:30 (they close at 6) to take the x-rays and have them developed and read. Its been 3 hours and haven't heard anything yet. Very needless to say, mom is super stressed out, just waiting and waiting.

I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who sent me pressies, cards, pictures, and birthday wishes. Having my Dogster pals to share my special day with me makes it all the more better! I love you all!!



Doo's mom here.....

Dropped Doo off at the vet this morning, she was limping REAL bad on her left front foot/leg. Had the right front x-rayed back in Nov, could it possibly have been the left one all along? Its so hard to tell...sometimes, she'll limp, then she'll act like nothing's wrong, this morning she was actually holding the foot up, she hadn't done that before. I pray to GOD that it isn't bone cancer like my 1st Weimaraner had with the same symptoms. I'm on pins and needles waiting for them to call me to come get her. Keep us in your prayers.


I'm in some pain...

As some of you might know, I went to the dentist this morning to have my teeth cleaned and some x-rays taken of my right front leg that had me limping on and off for the past week and a half. When mom called to check on me this afternoon, they told her I had to have 4 teeth removed and they took 6 x-rays of my leg. (They said I was worked on for like 2-1/2 hours! OMD!) Well, mom picked me up and they gave her the rundown on what I can and can't eat and gave me some pain medicine and told me to continue with the anti-inflammatory pills they gave me last week for my leg. One thing they DIDN'T tell mom was that there would be a BIG difference from the estimate of $580 that they gave her this morning. As a matter of fact it was a $600 BIG difference! When she went to pay the bill she almost passed out when it was $1100! OMD! OMD! OMD! ***thud*** (poor, poor mama) :o(

When we got home mom gave me some canned dog food (I was starvin' since I couldn't eat anything after 10 last night and had been gone all day from home and so it was over 24 hours since I had eaten) and one of my pain pills and I've just been lying on the couch moaning and groaning. I don't know which hurts worse my mouth or my leg where they probably twisted and turned it all around to get the x-rays they wanted. The x-rays showed nothing (mom was worried about bone cancer which her first Weimar, Dawn, had after she had been limping on her front leg for a few days), but I'm still limping so we're at a loss as to what's wrong with it.

Hopefully I'll be feelin' better in the morning and won't be moaning anymore. (Mom would have thought the pain pill would have kicked in by now.)


Christmas Cards...

Well its almost that time to send out the yearly Christmas cards to all our Dogster pals. We didn't get in on any of the Christmas card exchanges this year, but would love to give cards to all our pals and their pawrents. If we have your address or sent you a card last year, (we have all those addresses on the cards we kept) we'll be sending ya'll a card this year. If for some reason we don't have your address because you've moved or are new pals of ours, pawmail us and let us know what it is so we'll be sure and get a card out to you. :o)

Mama ordered some new spiffy cards with our pictures on it that we think you'll like.

Hope to hear from everybody.

~Doo & Austin

We just found our our friend Mable has kidney displasia. The prognosis isn't good since there is no cure for it. Can you please go over and send some well wishes to her and her pawrents. Mable has been so sick most of her life from one thing or another. (Her mom said its from bad breeding by the breeder and he continues to sell bullies that get sick.)

Feel better soon Miss Mable and know we are here for you.


Dogster Plus Renewal

We got a notice this morning from HQ saying that our membership is getting ready to expire in 13 days. Then it said..

"1 Year of DogsterPlus™ only $19.95
*best value, limited time only*

BEST VALUE, LIMITED TIME ONLY??!! Are the prices getting ready to go up?? I don't think we're getting our money's worth now, and now they might be going up on the price?? Hmmm, might be time to get out of Dogster. Its not that we don't have the $19.95, cause we do, thankfully, it's just that I can't see any justification for going up on the price.

Does anyone know about a possible price increase??


Redneck Joke

Since mama is going to go see Jeff Foxworthy Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy on Oct 1, she thought ya'll might like this joke. (Zoe's got us lookin' for jokes now.) BOL

1. Buy a pair of size 14-16 work boots.
2. Put them on front porch with a copy of Guns & Ammo.
3. Put some giant dog dishes next to boots & magazines.
4. Leave note on your door:
"Bubba: Me & Bertha went for more ammo & beer. Back soon. Don't mess with the pit bulls; they messed the mailman up bad this morning. I don't think Killer took part; hard to tell from all the blood. I locked all four of 'em in the house. Better wait outside. Be right back. ~Cooter


Dogster & Catster server will be down NEXT weekend..

July 27th 2011 6:21 pm

We just read this from some of our pals in our groups and thought we'd pass on the message too. This message is from HQ...

Hi all,

We at HQ just wanted to give you a quick heads-up: both Dogster and Catster will undergo a period of downtime towards the end of next week — we are not sure of the exact date right now, but we are targeting Friday afternoon, August 5, from 3 p.m. onwards. As soon as we know the exact, confirmed schedule we will post an update here, so please do check back!

The sites will be down for around six hours as we move to a much more modern serving environment. Please note that we are not making *any* changes to the sites, we are just upgrading our hardware and Internet collocation.

We know that many of you have pawties/weddings and other pawsome events in your groups/forums on the weekends and don’t want to be party poopers, but we strongly recommend that any Dogster/Catster events scheduled between August 5 and 7 be rescheduled as we work out any kinks from the server move that weekend.

Should you be on the site the weekend of August 5th and see any glaring issues, please drop us a note in the Dogster and Catster Server Upgrade Group, which we created for feedback after the server switch. We will be working hard to address any bugs you run into during this time.

P.S. If you have any current issues with the site, please e-mail as usual, this group is not for anything but post-server upgrade problems.

Thanks for reading! Much woof and meow!

Your pals at HQ
