Life as a P.I.M.P.

Ello Dogsters. Yes, it is me, the P.I.M.P.! I just wanted to check in with all my Dogsters to let you know how life has been going as a dog living life as a P.I.M.P. (Pup in Major Perfection). BOL!!!! Scared ya didn’t I???

Life has been up-n-down in the Smith household over the last several months. We have had so much going on with our furless and our furfull. Notably, my brofur Braun battled Bone Cancer (squamous cell carcinoma) and it seems he won. We were told on diagnosis that we had six weeks but, as you all know, our mom decided that was not going to happen on her watch and (after a full day of crying of course) did her research on the internet and via her wonderful friends on Facebook she found options. Braun had a couple of amputations and is doing so well now.
Our furless brother, Michael joined the Marine Crops and was gone for an entire 13 weeks at this place known as “hell” as well as we could gather from his letters. He has since graduated and is heading to Camp Lejeune for his Infantry training tomorrow.

Tina is as spoiled as ever. She demands attention 24 hours a day and gets it. Mom and Dad made the funniest video of them telling her it was time to get off the human bed and in her dog bed; the look on her face said "call the ASPCA, I am being abused", yet we all know whe wasn't being abused, just asked to do something she didn't want to do. She actually broke out the "whale eyes" in the video!! Sadly Mom is bad at the internet and she can't seem to figure out how to move a vid from her new Blackberry to the internet which is, so sad because it is HILARIOUS! We are all used to that by now. BOL!

Nugget has yet to decide it is better NOT to pee or poop in the house when mom & dad are at work. Mom and Dad know she is trained because she always asks to go potty when they are home but, she always wants to pee/poop as soon as they leave for work, etc. Mom says it is anxiety and we wonder why she still has it. Mom hates the idea of drugging her for same and she hates the idea of crating her with all of us running free (as we are accustomed to) so she is stuck. She and dad have resorted to leaving “painter’s tarp” down in the area we stay when they are away from home. She had some suggestions from pup pals to use a Kong but, she also has “food aggression” so this could lead to further problems as well. Needless to say, she has been a handful. Mom and Dad say “thank God we love our dogs endlessly because any one else would have taken her back.” I say, yes, my pawrents are AWESOME!

Ginger missed Michael the most when he was gone to Boot camp, though Mom might argue the point. Ginger was Michael’s dog at his other home (real mom and step-dad). My mom was pet-sitting for them when they would go out of town and noticed evidence of negligence as well as abuse. She thought about it and told Daddy we had to save her before they sent her back to the pound (because they have a reputation of doing same) and she told Daddy that we HAD to save her because this was Michael’s dog & this would break his heart. And then there was our new family member…the BEAUTIFUL GINGER! It took a lot of rehab to make her trust again. Michael was so grateful.

Then there is me!!!! I am doing very well. I am still the protector of the house and I keep the lil’ one’s in control. I make sure Dad works out by making him (and mom) take us on walks daily and, on occasion, I get a little spunky and make him chase me up-n-down the house hall for fun…he needs the exercise! BOL!

That is an update from The Smith Household and the P.I.M.P I hope all of you are well and those of you who aren’t please share with us so we can pray for you and your family. As evident in Braun’s case, POTP is a STRONG vibe and we send it to all who aren’t well.
