Oh, my...The Good and The Bad!

WOOF, all my pals~

THE GOOD:

Thanks a million to Shiloh's Mommy for making the soooo cute graphic of me and my bestest pal in all the world, Shiloh, eating spaghetti together!! Isn't it the cutest thing!! Shiloh's Mommy is a graphic wizard, for sure!!!


THE BAD:

Sorry I haven't updated my diary for the last few days, but I've been feeling a bit poorly (I'm FINE now)! Mom got me that great rope toy with hooves attached to it when she went to Walmart last Friday and I LOVED it (chewed on it all night). But, a few hours later, I threw up and Mom & Dad found shards from those darn hooves in the mess (naturally, they threw that toy away immediately). So, for the next few days I felt really puny and threw up my food. I was also breathing real weird and Mom and Dad were up all night with me Saturday night because I was so restless and my breathing was real fast and through my nose, not panting. This really scared Mom and Dad, so they put me between them on the bed (none of us could sleep) and petted and comforted me till dawn Sunday morning. On Sunday, I seemed to feel ok as the day went on...Phew!!! I thought for sure another vet visit was coming (they had planned to take me Monday, but the vet was closed) and by yesterday (Tuesday) I was just fine.

I SO appreciate all the beautiful gifts you guys have given me and the letters you've sent...but I'm really ok now!

And we can't thank Shiloh's Mommy enough for the graphic of me and Shiloh eating together...it just took my Mom quite a while to remember enough HTML to get it spaced right on my page (Shiloh has one on her page, too!!!).
We think it's so PAWSOME!!!

Well, gotta go for a walk with Daddy since the sun is FINALLY shining again today....YIPPEE!!!!

Bark at you guys later~~

WOOFS, WAGS & WIGGLES,

A Dear Furiend Needs Our Prayers and Help~~!

WOOF, everybody....

I was looking around my corral updates this evening and saw something that really upset me and I'm going to ask you all to do me and HUGE favor. A wonderful German Shepherd has a tragic story (hard to read, but you need to in order to try and help) and needs all our prayers for her (HANNAH) and her Mom. Rather than tell you all about it here, I'm begging you to go visit HANNAH's Dogster site and offer whatever encouragement you can AND read her Blog and sign the petition to punish the "law enforcement" K-9 handler (still on the job!!) who so abused poor HANNAH. Her site is at:

http://www.dogster.com/dogs/757736

You're going to be upset by what you read, but imagine how HANNAH's Mom feels (we need to all pull together and offer them our support).

Thanks you guys...you're all PAWSOME!
WOOFS, WAGS...no WIGGLES tonight (too sad)...

Happy Sunday, Everyone~

WOOF to all my pup pals~

Well, it's another rainy Sunday here in Virginia...we've had quite a bit of rain lately and I''m tired of it. When it rains, I don't get to lay outside in my front yard and commune with the elements (and ward off strangers). Also, my walks aren't as long and when I get all wet it takes Mom & Dad two full bath towels to wipe me off and then I'm still damp.

Mom went to Walmart yesterday and brought me home two full bags of new treats and TOYS!! The coolest toy is a rope with two hooves on it...Mom and Dad say is smells really bad, but they don't mind as long as it makes me happy. I spent most of last night gnawing on those hooves until Mom heard a "crack" and realized a shard had broken off and was in my mouth. She got it out real fast (it was sharp) and put my great toy away. She promised I could play with it some more today (under her close supervision).

The vet called Mom yesterday before she left for Walmart and said he wanted us to do a water deprivation test tonight and bring him a sample tomorrow.
OMD...they have to take all my water up tonight around 9pm and not let me have any more until they take me out at 9am tomorrow and get a sample. Mom and Dad feel awful having to do this to me, but the vet said it was important because my last pee sample showed my blood sugar was kinda low (it was 63 and it's supposed to be 70). So, even though I don't know what's coming tonight, Mom and Dad are dreading taking my water away for that long (it seems so mean!).

I've been having some nice chats with some of my new pup pals that invited me after they saw my Diary of the Day award on Friday. I couldn't believe how many pups wrote to me, gave me presents and asked me to be a pal...it was so sweet of everyone to take the time to congratulate me and now I have many more pals.

My Aunt Kathy came over yesterday and took Mom to Walmart. Then they came home (right in the middle of a big thunderstorm) and unloaded the car. I was VERY interested in the bags, 'cause I know that Mom never goes anywhere and comes home empty handed for ME! After they got the car unloaded (with Dad's help), everyone got dried off and then Mom and Aunt
Kathy dyed each others hair (they've both got too much grey, so they bought the same color and now their hair is auburn. Aunt Kathy's is much lighter and brighter than Mom's, but that's ok (at least all the grey is covered)!

I hope all of you have a wonderful day today (a special WOOF out to Shiloh and Faith Lynn)!

WOOF, all you pals!

So many of you have asked me where to get Frosty Paws (doggie ice cream) that I'm going to try to help you: The manufacturer of Frosty Paws (Frozen Treats for Dogs) is Purina....their website address is:

www.frostypawstreats.com or Phone 1-800-225-3636 (10am-8pm EST)

Maybe you can have your folks check out the website for local retailers who carrry them, OR, do as my Dad did and ask the supermarket Manager to order them! I really hope you guys can get them because you'll luv 'em and they are good for you, too (as a treat)!

Good luck to all of you...Frosty Paws are worth the search!

Doc Says My Test Came Back Fine!

April 25th 2008 8:46 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

WHEW...the vet called this morning and told my Mommy that all the blood work he sent in came back ok, with one exception (a spike..whatever that is...in my liver). He said the "spike" in my liver was probably due to the cortisone shot he gave me when I first got the itchies, but we have to re-check it in a month! We are VERY relieved, tho!

You guys are all so PAWSOME for all the congratulatory rosettes and messages you've sent me today (and I've gotten a lot of new pup pal requests, too...YIPPEE!!!). Me and Mom want to thank every one of you for who have been so thoughtful, and a special WOOF out to my best bud, SHILOH, who checks in with me every day!!

Remember I told you about Nikaya (the beautiful Husky with the icey blue eyes) that had an accident when he ran headlong into the clothesline pole?
Well, FAITH LYNN's Mom wrote my Mom this morning to say NIKAYA is no longer on Dogster (she said she'd gotten an e-mail from Nikaya's Mommy saying that Nikaya was ok, but his Mom was too busy to keep his Dogster site up. OH, how we pray that's the real reason for taking him off Dogster). In any event, our best wishes go out to NIKAYA and his Mommy...and we're so sorry FAITH LYNN's Mom lost her best pal on Dogster!

OK, guys, my Mom's gotta do some stuff now, so I have to stop writing. Hope all of you and your families have a wonderful weekend and grrrreat weather!

WOOFS, WAGS & WIGGLES~~

WOOFWOW~
My Mom finally got up after 9am today (late for her) and we had a message that I, the Sullster, am on the home page of Dogster as having the best "Diary of the Day"! Mom and I do this for fun and entertainment and have met some of the greatest new friends, so we think our diary being noticed is absolutely "PAWSOME"!!!! We are VERY honored, to say the least. Thank you voters and Dogster pals...WOOF, WOOF!!

WOOFS, WAGS & WIGGLES~
Love,
Sully
(Check out the fantastic graphic my best friend Shiloh's Mom made for me!)

WOOF WOOF WOOF!!! I am SO excited...my Dad went to the store today and finally found my very favorite "night night" treat...FROSTY PAWS!!! It's doggie ice cream and I love to be able to join Mommy and Daddy while we all eat our ice cream just before we go to sleep (real good for all our waistlines)!
Dad has been searching for them for weeks at all the stores, but I guess now that the weather is warming up, the stores will start carrying them again. He found them at Giant Food in the pet aisle in a little frozen case! Gonna be a grrrreat "nighty nite" tonight!

WOOF at y'all later!
Love,
Sully

WOOF you guys~

I got tagged by Shiloh and am keeping the game going by tagging YOU!

Here are the rules:

Each player needs to tell seven random facts about themselves. Tagged dogs must post the rules in their diary and their 7 facts. Then choose 7 pups to tag and list their names. Let them know by pawmail or rosette that they have been tagged and to read your diary for the instructions on how to play.

1. I am sick and tired of going to the vets!

2. I never stop begging for treats!

3. I hate baths unless BOTH Mom and Dad are in the bathroom with me...then I'm calm!

4. I used to sleep in bed with Mom and Dad every night, but haven't been for the past several weeks (as a matter of fact I hardly ever even get on the bed anymore. Mom and Dad can't figure out why!)

5. I hate to be left alone!!

6. I used to have over 60 bones on my Dogster page, but they keep disappearing and now it's down to only 2 as of today (what's up with that?).

7. I have made some wonderful new friends on Dogster that we talk to almost every day!

The seven pals that I choose are:

1. Shiloh (even though I already know his answers, BOL!)
2. Sunny
3. Faith Lynn
4. Sam
5. Django
6. Blackjack
7. Mason Layne

 

Geesh, back to the vet YET again & Some News About our Best- Pals~~

April 23rd 2008 5:45 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

We just got back from the vet (for the third time in as many weeks...BARGH!!!!). My itchies are better, but not gone yet, so Mom wanted more antibiotics. Mom's also been concerned because I've been kinda lethargic in the mornings, with a hot nose and paws AND I've been
eating everything in sight and want MORE, MORE, MORE...even waking Mom up during the night wanting food. I've also been drinking TONS of water (as soon as they refill the bowl, I drink it and want more). Since Mom & Dad saw the same things with their precious angel "Buddy" (1995-2005) before he was
diagnosed with Diabetes (and eventually went blind), my Mom insisted that we do a Diabetes check at the vet. To our surprise, it came back that my blood sugar was actually LOW...weird!

The vet also did a urinalysis which showed that (oh, what's the term the doc used), something that means my kidneys aren't processing the urine right 'cause I'm peeing it all out as soon as I drink all the water. (The GOOD news is that the vet didn't see any strange blood cells in the urine which would indicate something horrible, like the big "C"!)

I was a VERY good boy when the vet stuck the needle in my paw and then shoved a swab all the way through my "thing" (OUCH!!) to see if there was any puss or other indication of internal infection, there wasn't!! I got some treats after all that indignity~!!

The vet said I don't need antibiotics any more (since there's no sign of infection), but he's sending my blood work off to be analyzed (which he said would tell a lot about my kidneys & bladder and some other stuff). He is going to call us on Friday with the results.

Also, he told Mom and Dad that they have to deprive me of water for 12 hours (oh yeah, right!) on Thursday night, then take me out first thing in the morning and get a pee sample and bring it to him. The tests will tell him more about how my kidneys are processing my urine...that's gonna be a lot of fun for Mom & Dad as I want water all the time and plan to spend the night Thursday begging for it!!! Oh, well, who needs sleep anyway when it's for
my benefit!

So, even though my itchies are better, they have some other things to look at (vet said he didn't think it was anything serious) and we'll know more on Friday...via yet ANOTHER vet visit! I should start paying rent there!!!

Anyway, this stuff is pretty expensive and Mom and Dad are really glad we bought that pet insurance policy to help defray the costs of my last 3 visits! The vet was good about filling out the forms, so now we just need to send them in and see how good this pet insurance policy really is!

***************************************************** ***************''
On another note, a very SAD one, we just learned that our dear pup pal, Sam has been diagnosed with cancer (all over him). His Mom and Dad are, naturally, devastated and we are all so very sorry and upset for them. If any of you know Sam, it might be sweet to send his family a note of compassion.
Sam's picture is in my Pup Pals gallery, but if you want to go to his website to leave a note or gift, his site address is:
http://www.dogster.com/dogs/676854 (details of diagnosis in his Diary).
We are sure any wishes would be greatly appreciated by his wonderful family!
*************************************************** *****************
Another one of our best pup pals, "Nikaya" (a gorgeous husky with icy blue eyes) had a bad accident last week when he was running to catch a football and crashed headlong into a wood post that holds up the clothesline. He collapsed immediately, had a cut over his eye and was un-responsive. The full story is in his Diary and those of us who know and love "Nikaya" and his Mommy are very concerned because we haven't seen any Diary updates since the accident happened. If you want to see Nikaya's page and send some comfort to his Mommy (as we don't know how he's doing now and are worried about him and his Mom), his Dogster page is at: http://www.dogster.com/dogs/673759
We're sure any good wishes would be greatly appreciated as Nikaya's Mommy loves him so dearly and doesn't know what she'd do if she lost him..prayers please!
*************************************************** *****************
Well, my dear Dogster pals, that's about it from me today. I know my Mom writes in my Diary a lot, but she's retired and had a lot of time on her hands and just loves to keep up with all the wonderful furfriend and their families.
We've met some of the nicest people in the whole world on Dogster!

Bark at y'all later~
WOOFS, WAGS & WIGGLES
Love,
Sully
