Virus warning for all furbabies!

Wow! Sorry I haven't been back on in a while but I have been recovering from some kind of virus. Warning to all dogs out there that this virus can sneak up on you at any time and spreads quickly from one furbaby to another. The virus is being called “winter-itus” and symptoms include: Running in circles for hours, rolling in the burn pile in the back yard, chasing anything with legs and gnawing on their ankles while making a growling noise, hiding when mommy or daddy tries to get your attention and then jumping out at them when they get close, running from the living room to the bedroom repeatedly until the sheets and cushions are on the floor, lunging with all force at your pawrents when they call you over for playtime, twisting around on your leash over and over until it the rope section will not retract into the handle portion, and last but not least…sleeping it off for days! I know, I know, sounds scary but from what I hear it will not kill you. It will simply wear your pawrents out. I think the cure is “summer-itus” which will not be on the market for several months! Be careful and take care.


What a fabulous Saturday.

In my previous post I told you about my Grandpaw coming to visit on Saturday. He did and it was the best day. He showed up with treats and lots of love. I prefer both but if I had to choose I take his love:-) We had lots of playtime and social time and The Ohio State Buckeyes won! What a great day. Mom posted a picture of me with Grandpaw during his recent visit. I am that ball of fur plastered to his leg:-) Told you I loved him!

OMD...OMD...OMD...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM SOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!! All of you who know me know how much I LOVE MY GRANDPAW and you would also know that he was hospitalized and had a major surgery earlier this year. When he was released the doctor told him he can't come to our house for a long, long time because he had a pump attached to his stomach to help his wound heal and it was not safe to be around us in case we bumped it and it came loose or something. Well.....GRANDPAW IS DOING BETTER AND HAS DECIDED TO COME OVER TOMORROW TO WATCH THE OHIO STATE GAME WITH DADDY! I am soooooooo happy I think my eyes are going to pop out and my tail is going to fall off (from wagging too much)! Mommy will be giving all of us a bath and trimming our nails tonight so we can be "pristine" for his first visit in furrreeevvveeerrrrr! I hope he can see the television with all of us in his face/lap! He is the greatest grandpaw EVER!


The most beautiful Pit in the WORLD - in my eyes anyway:-)

I have a new crush. Niko who is mommy's best friend's dog is soooooo darn cute and very athletic. I think her and I would hit it off. Hopefully she doesn't remember when we met a few years back when I was in my "awkward stage" and we had a lil spat. I wanna kiss her face!! Mommy put her picture on my page so everyone can see jsut how adorable she is.


Me to the rescue – sort of

Mom was in the bathroom this morning using “that thing” on her head that she uses every morning. Usually she uses “that thing” in the bedroom while watching the morning news/traffic/weather before work but today she did it in the bathroom.

I was very concerned about her being in such a closed space with “that thing” so I went in there to sit with her in case she needed me to save her from “that thing”. I was right next to her when “that thing” forced her to bend her head all the way over close to the ground and it started blowing really hot air all over her head!! She moved her head side to side trying to fight it but it just kept going. Just as I was about to step in she won the battle with “that thing”. She stood back up (with very dry and fluffy hair I might add) and put it in its place (the bathroom closet).

I am so super happy she was able to take control because I am afraid to admit…I am really scared of “that thing”!!!

Grandpaw's going home!!!!

Mom & dad spent a lot of time at the hospital this weekend with Grandpaw and everytime they came home they seemed to be in a better mood. Heard mommy telling someone on the phone that Grandpaw gets to go home on Monday. Well, today is Monday and it has been confirmed! Grandpaw has been released to go home and he is just going through all of his paperwork, setting up his home nurse visits, etc. and he is a free man!!

Mommy cleaned his apartment out and got him all new groceries yesterday so he will have all he needs when he gets there.

Saddest thing ever is that the doctor told Grandpaw that he can't be around us (dogs) for at least 6 months b/c his belly wound is not sewed up (he has a HUGE bandage over it) so he can't risk one of us jumping up and injuring the surgical site. This breaks all of our hearts as Grandpaw loves us so much and we love him more.

Mom and dad thought maybe they can just bring us over one by one over the next few weeks and stay on the outside of his porch. That way we can see him and no one has to worry about us having access to his belly. We will do what we can b/c we cannot go that long without seeing that beautiful face. He means the world to us.

I would like to give the BIGGEST THANKS to all of my Dogster family for the love, support and prayers. You can't imagine how wonderful your emials, gifts and kind words meant to us. Mom would read them to us and get tears in her eyes. We LOVE YOU ALL!

He was taken off his ventilator Wednesday afternoon. He is doing as well as to be expected. We are very optimistic! Daddy took the whole day off to be with him while mommy worked. He was awake around noon yesterday and mommy headed straight there after work.

Mom & Dad got grandpa a stuffed bear that sang "Don't Worry, Be Happy" and it danced while it sang! He LOVED it!! He teared up. We also got him flowers which was not allowed in his room b/c he is in ICU so the nurse said she would hold it for him.

On another note - mom and daddy were so late coming home last night from the hospital that we decided we needed to go ahead and feed ourselves so when they got home they found various packages of Rice-A-Roni all over the kitchen floor as well as powdered taters. I am not sure why the humans like that stuff - it was dry and crunchy! Anway, they were not mad we got in the cabinet - they were just happy we were ok.

Luv & hugs
