I'm literally twisting mom's arm to type for me today! She has been sooooooo busy! With her new job, and lots of servicework to do here on the North Shore and in Vancouver, she never goes on dogster anymore! I just wanted to let all my pup pals know what's going on!!! Oh well, my pawrents are so sweet to me, even though they are busy we go to the dog park every day! There are so many to choose from down here... my favorite is Ambleside.. It is a beautiful walk along the seawall, with at least 10 dogs at all times, usually more, mom says that on a nice sunny day I have met 100 dogs in the hour and a half to two hours we play there!! It's wonderful! The closest dogpark to our new home in west vancouver is called lighthouse park. It is popular for people too.. so sometimes there are less dogs. Always lots of new trails to explore, and squirrels to chase!!! The big black ones.. they're too smart for me though, just when I think i've caught one, it climbs straight up a tree! drat. Another favorite thing to do these days is go up to cypress mountain and showshoe around with dad! They love me so much, that they work different times of the day and week, and I am never left alone for more than a couple hours at a time! What a lucky pup I am! It's pretty rainy here alot of the time, but I am grateful I'm not in Prince George when it's -36 out!!!! I still get long walks and plays in the rain, probably wouldn't happen if it were that cold out! After all, my fur is short, and I shiver, even if it's -1 or -2 outside! Luckily mom buys me coats and boots and stuff for the colder weather, and to protect my little paw! ANyways! Thats whats going on for me right now! Also, I'm turning one on March 26th. Any pups I know in the GVRD are welcome to come to my pawrrty... Mom is trying to plan it and set a date soon! YAY! Bye for now!

Today was the first day I was allowed to be in the house without a wrap on my paw!~ wooooooooooohoo was it ever fun. Mom keeps trying to make me stop licking at it. She bought me a bone that is as my body! It's called a dino bone! I'm supposed to eat it instead of my paw.. hehe! I also got a new toy! I am sure excited!! I might have a 6 month birthday party next week.. depending on the weather.. I'll let my dogster pals know so any pups in the area can come!

Well! Mom's back to work now, so she hasn't had alot of time to listen to all my barking.. She is really tired.. My toes are looking good, the vet said I need to come in once a week for medical progress exams, but that mommy is doing a great job wrapping and caring for my paw, cuz it looks great! To mee, it looks funny, because I only have two toes in the middle and little lumps on either side where the other toes used to be.. but I am used to the bandage changes, and now mom can do it all on her own, without having to have an assistant hold me. I sit pretty still for her and let her clean and wrap my paw once a day....... BUT the rest of the time I am a crazy craaaaaaaaaaaaaazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzy puppy! Running and jumping and chewing all my squeaky toys and stuff! Mom says I must have forgot that I'm not supposed to jump up or pull the leash.. I am just getting so strong that I like to do it! I pullll so hard, even at 35 or 40 lbs or whatever i weigh, i am a strong puller!! I can also jump straight up into the air, at least 2 ft off the ground. Mom holds my toy above her head, and I jump as high as I can, almost to her face level!! I get to go on short walks again now, and I try to run so hard sometimes that i flop my bandage off!!! Good thing mom has this "Medi-paw" protective cover over the bandages, to keep it dry and clean! Well.. gotta go. mom has a dumb meeting at 630 so i have to be quiet.
wAGS Licks! and loves to all of my pup pals!

Teeth!

Oh mom mom is such a goof she says I'm teething.. I try to chew everything.. even her! My teeth are hurty!!! I keep crying and chewing! Mom spoils me she bought me many teething toys! she follows me around looking for my teeth.. She already got two.. She is making me a baby book, since she has no kids, I'm her baby!! So I guess she wants one of the big ones.. teeth I mean, I lost one, and she was all sad she couldn't find it.. haha! I bet it's gonna poke her in the foot one day!

My paw is looking good mum says, but boy has it been itching like craaaaaaaazy~ i kick kick kick at it with my back paws! Mom says stop Selene! LEAVE IT! But I don't get it. I only leave toys and food and cats, you know.. I don't get why I can't itch my scratch! Ah well.

Besides that.. I smelled a new dog next door.. I just saw it's butt and tail, a curly tail!! Mom says maybe a sharpei or a chow that's shaved! I can't wait to meet him or her!!

Home with Mom all week!

My mom is so awesome! She is doing my treatments at home, and it's going ok. It hurts when the water touches on my outside toes, which are dead, so you can see the bare bone and the dead toes just slipping off.. I flop my head around a bit when the water hydrotherapy touches the bone.. It upsets mom a bit, but she called the vet, so she knows it's just pain, and, well, me being stubborn, squirming and trying to watch what she is doing, getting tired of holding my head up.. I am pretty tender for the hour or so of treatment and re-wrapping my paw, but I am fuuuuuuuuuurtastic afterwards.. I am adapting to not using my hurty, floppy, paw, so I just hold it off the ground, and run around, playing and chewing, chasing my feline furmily members, and behaving like the silly pup I am! Since I am hurt, and also, I have been informed that I am one of Dogster's Diary pick today, I am getting spoiled! Mom gave me a chunk off her tenderloin steak (raw) she is going to cook the rest for herself.. and lots of treats.. So I will try to go on a little walk, since I want to retain my youthful girlish figure:)

Oh ya! about the 8's!!!

The title of my last entry was happy 8.8.08 and i didn't even tell you what a lucky day this is.. VERY AUSPICIOUS!! The two toes might be able to be salvaged, if this tendon thingy underneath where my pad should be.. and also the big pad of my foot too.. they need to grow too.. but the signs of regeneration in my tissue is so lucky! It's the opening day of the Beijing olypics, and my mom's father lives in china! He gets to watch all the events he wants, but if any trains (mass transit) break then he will have to fix it! He is so lucky I bet the games will be fantastic! If my paw heals, then I can pursue my dream career of dog sports! Schutzhund! My dad was a Sch.1 and 2 and my mom, well she has no working stock in her, only conformation, but hey, I had to get my good looks from somewhere! Since it is the luckiest day for a long time 080808, and the first day of the Olympics, I think it might be a sign that my two toes will heal! I sure hope so!

HAPPY 8.8.08

I am a barking over the voices of vet tech's, kennel care aids, and other pups, dogs, kittehs, and cat's! My mom can barely distinguish my shrill yelp or sad cry from the others.. Mom watched the hydrotherapy, treatment, and wrapping procedures for my paw this morning, and this noon, and she even whispered to me that she remembers/knows how to do it better than the new(er) vet tech that did it just now.. This afternoon she will do the procedure by herself, with one of the vet techs holding me, and with my vet, Dr. Fotsch, watching and showing mom bad vs. good tissue..! But anyways. Mom says she can't hear me so I told her to post my entry from the "get well soon forum" she transcribed for me this morning!! Thanks all you sweet pets for the very fancy special gifts!!! Here;s the post:

Hey everyone thanks for all the love and prayers.. Mom wrote on my cone, it says: I'm Selene! My paw hurts! So give me lots of pets and kisses! Then she drew an arrow to my face and it says cute face.. smile So! The vet says it's looking up for me today! Mom is taking as much time as I need off work, to make sure I get alllllllllllllllllllll better.. The vet said, the central toes, ironically the broken ones, are showing some "viability" whatever that means! Not much to me but mom didn't cry and get all hysterical yet.. So that's good!! I am spending the day at or again, and mom is hanging around the vet office, to learn how they are doing the hydrotherapy and treatment, and re-wrapping my paw.. Also to look at it each time they do, to learn what is good and what is bad.. as far as tissue growth and colour and smells are concerned.. in my floppy, messy foot! Then, I will just stay with her at home andshe will do the therapy for me, watching, of course, for any degeneration of the tissue and any signs of infection.. She is committing to doing that for a week to ten days, with a recheck in a week, or at any sign of concern. I am glad there is some hope! Also, that My mom will be with me all day every day now until I am better!! FUN! Thanks again, everyone, I will update soon, since mom and I will be hanging around the house lots!

not so happy for me, but all the same.. i wish you all a happy BC day! mom is all upset cuz my foot smells again.. i must have dipped my splint in the water bowl.. uh-oh.. yeah mom is soooooooooo worried and overprotective of me. she called the emergency vet AGAIN! i hope she doesn't take me in today because last time i had to spend the night in the kennels there and i hated it. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. well. mom and dad re-wrapped my splint, so the smell is less, but it still hurts so we're going to get me some baby aspirin!! we'll see what the vet says when he calls mom back, i say let me stay at home because my re-check appointment is tomorrow!!

Mom got stopped by a dog loving police man for letting me sit on her lap in the car, so she recently bought me a doggy seatbelt!!!! well, it's actually a fancy harness with a thing that goes through the seatbelt on the back, so i can move just a little.. someone must know i'm not the best sitting still for too long!! it's pretty cool. i don't distract mom as much, except with my cuteness!! mom know's how sad i've been lately, although i try to hide it.. so she is taking the tops off of our yellow car, the "sweet 80's car" as she calls it (IROC Z-28 Camaro with T-tops) and i get to sit buckled in in the front seat!! Dad says he has other things to do today, so we are going alone, mom and i, two hot girls cruisin around! everyone looks at me when i'm in that car, and people talk to mom and sometimes reach over and pet me!! all because there is no roof! yay! well i better get ready.. mom lets me wear my special pink spikey collar when we go out!!

Mommy made me my own dogster page!

My oh my, with a hurt paw, a warm summer day can be aweful and depressing.. I wanted to frolic in the sunshine! Mom said no you can't get too sweaty.. I swear I heard other pups swimming in the river, but maybe it was just the washing machine or something. I think the heat makes me delusional sometimes! the anti-biotics I have to take for my toes makes my tummy hurt, and as much as mom and dad kiss it, it doesn't feel better. also, how does the vet expect me to sit or lay comfortably with this huge splint thing on my whole arm??!! man that is annoying. everyone fusses about it not getting wet or dirty. ugh. my family..they keep trying to make me happy, taking me on car trips, buying me treats like toys and stuffing for my kong.. my brother eisbaer the cat even snuggled me for a while.. but today, I am just sad to be a hurt puppy, and will just lay in my parents bed until i get put on the floor! hrmf!
