Mother Nature Gyps Us.

Hey everypup ~Scooter here~

Mom has concluded the "Carrot Diet" is not working as well as it should. Because, well; Chiggen, Greenies, Milkbones™, MEATZ™, Cheese and last but not least, Misty's very high calorie prescription dog food so she doesn't get bladder stones anymore. (Paws crossed of course, because well, see above).

So we've been dragging Mom down the hill for a WALK every day and then she drags us up the hill on the way back home. BOL. Well mostly me, she just tells the others to GO. Misty and I go first with Mom and then she does the same for Cutter and Pepper.

Mother Nature has decided to gyp us of our WALK and insists on sending heavy rain that even a dog from the Pacific Northwest says no to. Mom says we live in Mother Natures Armpit and she needs some antiperspirant.

Hey everypup ~Scooter here~

Remember when you were a young pup and chased leaves? Now I just lay on the back of the couch and bark at them.

Remember when you were a young pup and every noise was worth getting up and investigating? Now I just bark and let Mom check it out if it needs to be.

Remember when you were a young pup and every time the door opened you needed to go outside as well? Now I just go when I have need privacy please time. (Not like Misty's "alone time" where she just sits outside all by herself. B-o-r-i-n-g!).

Remember when you were a young pup and could jump up om the bed by yourself? Now I just whine until Mom lifts me up. Who wants to use that expensive ramp she bought along the side of the bed if I have my own pawsonal elevator (Mom).

Remember when you were a young pup and the sight of the EVIL NEMESIS SQUIRREL threw you into a tizzy and you just about lost it? Well that I still remember, and I see one and about to explode. Gotta Go!

Mom here: I'm not sure what he would do w/ a squirrel considering he had 8 teeth pulled some months back. LOL

Hey everypup ~Scooter here~

Out on our WALK tonight, she did it. She stuck her head down there. I'd already lifted my leg. So I peed on my sisters head. BOL.

I'll do it again, mark my words. BOL.

This Could be a Challenge.

Hey everypup ~Scooter here~

Today Mom gave us ice cubes and it is finally weather that you want an ice cube. I like to pick them up and kind of toss them, chase them down, and lick them.

The first time I tried to pick up the ice cube it was fresh from the freezer and stuck to the top of my gums since I'm missing all those front teeth. This surprised me and I gave it the stink eye. Except I really wanted that ice cube. So I licked it for awhile because that's what I usually do.

Then I tried to pick it up to give it a toss so I could tackle it. Could. Not. Pick. Up. Ice. Cube. Impossible with all your upper front teeth missing.

This will be a challenge this summer fur sure!

The New (Gnu) View Review.

April 23rd 2013 8:49 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ]

Hey everypup ~Scooter here~

Last weekend was full of excitement and I have just now recovered and can tell you all about it.

Saturday morning Mom got up and made weekend coffee and settled in. Or so we thought. She puttered around and moved stuff around and the mail came with packages so we had to contain ourselves (as much as we could with the Mom Death Stare affixed upon you). Then she opened boxes from places like the Amazon River Delta (aka right next to where Mom works at a different company and the new Amazon HQ is populating), the Post Office and since it had stupid stuff like "arts & crafts" or brace yourselves for the boredom, "postage stamps" from Ebark.

Not a Greenie in a single package.

Then the phone range and she sprinted out the door, good thing we reminded her to change out of jammies and brush her teeth, who cares what her hair looks like. BOL.

Lickity split she was back and this time we scored with some smoked MEATZ™ bones and then off she was again. WTWoof? Couple hours later she got back and the bags she brought back in...did not smell like MEATZ™. At all! Stinky stuff like new clothes, silly shoes, more dumb arts & crafts. Bluch, then she made gel candles. Yawnville! It rained all day long, and rained-rained bluchy grey big drop rain.

Sunday Mom woke up really early and made weekend coffee and then made it again. Watch out! The only caffeine she has is her 1 weekend coffee (don't tell the rest of Seattle), so this could get out of hand.

Then a big beeping truck backed up and Mom slipped out the front door. We were locked inside but we were not silenced! As Mom stood out in the dripping big drop rain she saw HubbaHubba guy get out and thought yeah! The the next person got out and when Mom tore her eyes off HubbaHubba guy she saw a lady. She thought Wow! That is one brave girl and lots of respect. Then HubbaHubba guy smiled and shook Mom's hand and she tried not to whimper (from the handshake, dogs pay attention) and turned to the lady and said this is my girlfriend HotBody lady and she's going to help me out. Then Mom shook HotBody ladies hand and tried to not whimper again. BOL.

Then HubbaHubba guy and HotBody lady went to work and we barked for a good 2 hours. Mom yelled and drank more weekend coffee and paced. Tree limbs dropped with a crack and thump and we barked. Chainsaws started and we barked.

Sorry pups, this has to be continued later, Mom had the rest of the story typed up and forgot to save it before she hit the X marks the spot button.

To Be Continued...

Hey everypup ~Scooter here~

So instead of lovely MEATZ™ smelling SNACKS™ since my historical amount of $$$$ in one week V-E-T visits we now have new Veggie-tables SNACKS™. Yep, orange cylinder shaped things called "carrots". Ok for the first couple but after that give me some MEATZ™.

Hey everypup ~Scooter here~

Mom says she is super happy because her best furless pals from Arizona that used to live here will be here in September for 10 days. They haven't been back to Seattle since they left and they say they can't wait to see some green. BOL!! Mom has been getting rid of the green around here "moss" with rakes and some bad words. CurseOL. BOL

It seems like furever since they will be here, since they left before we were born 8 years ago. I know that Mom was super happy and that is enough for me. I love them already!

Nurse Mom can Retire.

Hey everypup ~Scooter here~

Today Mom got home early and we got back in the car and went to see Dr. B the V-E-T. We walked in the door and I sniffed the dog that was there, but then looked at Mom. She laughed and said sometimes I had to share the couch. The lady with the other dog moved over and I hopped right up there and tried to snuggle up next to her. *Mom note, he tried to hide behind her*. Except for the fact that the nice lady kept calling a "her" I still introduced myself by giving her my paw. Which all dog knows means pet me now until I say stop.

Sooner than I needed, Dr. B was ready for me. He stuck the temperature thing up my butt and Mom showed him the lump on my back she was worried about. At first Dr. B gave a puzzled concerned look and then looked at his notes. He told Mom he thinks it is just from the antibiotic shot he gave me the week before when my toofers got pulled and the ones remaining cleaned. Dr. B tried to give me a SNACK. NO THANK YOU!! Sorry Dr. B, I just want out of this place. We walked straight out since Mom was going back w/ Pepper as soon as she dropped me off at the house. She only has room for 1 dog butt in the car at a time. BOL.

I haven't been on the pain medication since yesterday morning and am happy about that. Makes my head hard to lift up, my legs wobble when I walk and my ears feel like they need to be shaken all the time. It was still light out and the sun was kind of shining. I spotted an EVIL CROW and took off after him barking. I walked a little slow back to the house, but when Mom gave me a small SNACK I actually ate it.

Mom looked at me and said she was retiring her nursing hat.

No more hand delivered water.
No more canned food.
No more turning my nose up at going outside.
But I still get to take the rest of the tasty anti angry back swelling pills that taste like beef and the rest of the antibiotics that are wrapped in ham. TASTY.

Thanks for all the POTP and warm wishes for my health. Today I got a card from Mom's Mom and Dad wishing me well wishes. They have been traveling the United States for the last 2 years in their travel trailer and truck visiting all the National Parks and Monuments since the retired. Mom laughs because they have wintered in high desert of Arizona the last 2 winters and this year the weather has been better in the Pacific Northwest than Arizona. BOL.

Sniff at ya later pups, I have some kibble to eat and some water to drink.



Road to Recovery.

Hey everypup ~Scooter here~

This morning I wanted to get out of bed and there was no yips or yipes. I wagged my tail as I walked down the hill shaking the cobwebs out of my head from the drugs. I asked to go outside and peed a couple times and left a good bit of stuff for Mom to pick up.

I'm able to scratch my ears and hind end so improvement on less pain and movement. Since I haven't been eating except for what I may insist on from now on, canned food and only small portions if any, I have little to do outside. Mom says we'll keep the pain pills up for 2 pills worth (4 days) and that is the day we go back to see Dr. B if needed. If all is good we stick to anti-inflamatories and the antibiotics until the antibiotics run out and we don't need the other.

Thanks so much for all the PoTP everypup sent. It worked and makes us so happy to know that one good wag deserves another.

Worser Part III.

Hey everypup ~Scooter here~

Well on Saturday I woke up and my tail was wagging and I ate more canned food. I laid on the Scooter chair and barked at the CROWS and any noise from outside. The weather was sunshiny and I spent some time outside soaking up some vitamin sunshine. Dr. B called to check on me and Mom told him I was wagging my tail and was feeling better.

Sunday morning I woke up and when Mom lifted me out of bed I yelped again. I walked slowly down the hall and went outside. I just laid on the Scooter chair or couch and felt worse for the rest of the day.

I yelped again this morning, but when I went outside the sun was kind of out and I spent about 10 minutes sniffing stuff. (we lost that hour yesterday - I wonder if that's why I felt bad, knowing I was missing an hours sleep that day). I was walking really slow and hunched over.

Mom stopped by to talk to Dr. B so after talking to her he sent her home with some true pain killers. So now I have 3 pills to take a day and Mom has to chop 2 of them up into either halves or quarters. I get 2 of them wrapped in ham and the other tastes like beef, I gobble them right up.

We are giving this until Thursday and going back in to see Dr. B if I don't feel better. I just had dinner and was out in the yard for privacy please. Now I'm back up on the Scooter chair and now ready to take a drug induced triple rainbow w/ MEATZ™ at the end of each of them (also conveniently ending right there at the foot of the Scooter Chair.

So that's how it is around the Papillon Pack household.
