break in the fence

There is a break in our electric fence. Dad hasn't found where it is yet. He has been going outside with us and watching us closely so we don't take off on a tour of the area.

Well, last night Addison realized that the fence wasn't working. No mater how much Dad called to her, she just kept running. She was gone about 2 hours. Dad was out looking for her and she didn't go too far from the house because Dad saw her twice in that 2 hours.

Addy drug her sorry butt home after it was dark outside. Dad thinks she ran through every mud puddle possible in that 2 hours. She was dripping in mud!

He immediately took her in for a shower. Of course she "shook" just before getting into the shower. Mum isn't a happy camper. We're getting company on Friday for the weekend and she had just clean the bathroom - wiping down the walls and all to get ready for the company.

Mum didn't check out the bathroom till just before bed time. There was mud splattered EVERYWHERE! Even the toilet paper had mud splattered on it.

Mum didn't say anything - she just calmly (????!!??) walked out of the bathroom and went to bed. Darn - I was ready for the fireworks! Guess she figures she can't get too worked up when you have 5 messy dogs in the house.

Hey - I resemble that remark! BOL


my first physical therapy session

Tonight was my first PT session. I met Sheri - she is the person that will be working with me. I liked her right away and kissed her to tell her that.

I got a nice massage and Dad was taught the exercises I need to do at home 3 times a day - 6 reps. There was also some clicking wand that was used on me. Sheri showed it to me first, so I didn't mind it. I laid on the pillow bed while she used it on me (Mum sez it was a laser).

Sheri led me up a ramp with Dad's help (I wasn't too sure of this thing.) The door was closed behind me and Sheri and I were in a tank. It quickly began filling with water. I didn't like a bit upset and pooped just a little in the water. Did that stop Sheri, nope. Next thing i knew, the bottom of the tank was moving and I was going backwards.

It took me a little while, but I figured out that I was suppose to walk in the water. Sheri said I was a star student. It usually takes at least 2 visits to get the hang of that contraption.

So, I'm scheduled for next Thursday at the same time. They are thinking about 3 months of this might do the trick. We'll see what happens.

Bodhi - tired from working hard this afternoon


more about my vet visit

I'm in great health other than the ACL issue. I *could* drop about 4 pounds. I'm currently at a solid 78#.

The vet was impressed with how clean my ears were. Dad told them that Dr. Bo (my furbro Bo Cephus) cleans all of our ears on a daily basis. My teefers also are very clean and I don't need any dental work. BOL!

Someone will be calling Mum today from the vet's office about therapy for my leg. Anybody out there have any experience with water therapy for an ACL injury? I don't know how I feel about going into a pool.....might get to try it soon and see how it goes.

It's early morning here and the pawrents are already having trouble keeping me calm. This is gonna be a very LONG 4 - 6 weeks!

Bodhi - it's hard to keep me down!

Well, pals, it's what Mum thought might have happened to my leg. I injured my ACL. The vet wants the pawrents to keep me calm for the next 4 to 6 weeks. I shouldn't be doing steps or using the doggie door. I'm also suppose to be on a leash when outside rather than running and playing in the contained yard. Yeea - okay ...... like THAT'S going to happen!

I'm on meds for inflamation and also have pain meds to be used as needed.

So - any suggestions for keeping me calm/quiet, the pawrents are listening!

Bodhi - in a dazed state of mind


pain in my leg

I have a vet’s appt Wednesday night. Seems I’m fine in the morning, but as the day goes on, I’m limping on my right hind leg. The pawrents can’t see anything wrong, but I don’t like Dad touching my one toenail.

Mum has been massaging my leg and I’m surely loving that! She hasn’t found any tender spots while she’s been doing that.

The pawrents have been trying to keep me calm, but that’s next to impossible. BOL! I’ll let you know what the vet has to say.

Bodhi – in constant motion, but a having a bit of pain

It was 3 years ago yesterday that I joined the Blaner Pack.

Life is good!

When Mum comes out of the bedroom every morning, we are at the door waiting for her.

She has to be greeted properly since we haven't seen her all night long.

This morning, I wasn't there when she opened the door....just Tanner and Bo Cephus were there to greet her. (Addison doesn't usually join in the greeting - she would rather sleep longer on the couch.)

Mum was surprised at how calm the morning greeting went without me there. (I was out on deck patrol - keeping the house safe.) Of course as soon as I realized what was going on without me, I was front and center causing the normal commotion.

It's great to be missed and appreciated for the job that you do!

a diary pick

How about that! I'm one of the diary picks of the day. How cool is that! I told Mum that we were missing a lot of great stuff while she was too busy to keep us updated on dogster!

Mum did take a few pictures of me over the weekend. She hasn't posted them yet, but maybe she'll get it done today.

I have a new favorite spot to sleep. It's in the computer room - kinda like a day bed that Dad built. Last night at 8:15PM, Mum heard me going upstairs by myself. I jumped up on my bed and didn't come down till this morning. It's nice to have something all to yourself sometimes.

Have a great day, pals!



It's been a while!

Mum has been a slacker. She’s not been faithfully keeping up with our dogster pals. I guess that happens sometimes. Humans get busy and other things keep them occupied.

Well, one of the things that was keeping Mum occupied has moved out. Our human sis and her furless one found a home of their own. The furless one will only be here a couple days a week, so Mum should have MUCH more time for keeping up with our pals on dogster. (I’ve been doing some pretty cute things lately….maybe she’ll even break out the camera!)

I’ve missed you pups!



a cat in the house

I'm not dumb - I know there is a cat in my house. It's in the basement. I can't seem to find it, but oooooh it's there!

I hear mum down there talking to it - I thought I heard her call it Meesha, but I'm not sure sure that's the right name. Every time I'm down there with mum, she keeps saying no-bodhi. So I'm on the hunt for that wiley cat I'm sure is called no-bodhi.

I'll let you know how the hunt goes.
