Thank Dog for No Rules!

I am so very happy my mom and dad do not enforce rules around our dog house. I have a chair (mom thinks it is hers) that I like to lay on, lean on, jump on and sometimes make it fall over. No rules means I can do what I want on my (mom's) chair. Only thing I can't do is stay on it when mommy and daddy are getting ready to watch a movie. Buttheads! BOL! Mom added pics of me doing "what I want" on my (mom's) chair. Love to all my Dogsters!!

To err is human—to forgive, canine. I, Tina Smith forgive the people who treated me so badly before mom and dad saved me. I hope and pray they have learned a lesson and are no longer being cruel to the sweet furbabies in this world.

Daddy wanted to ride with me and that is ok . I rode him around the backyard only because we didn't have our helmets on. Daddy was getting all the bikes cleaned and juiced up for the dirt biking trip and I thought I would give him some pointers. Just to be safe:-) I look good on that Yamaha don't I??? Mommy had a Honda...daddy says Honda sux. BOL!


Daddy is Awesome!

Last night our family was very stressed out about my brother Braun. He is set to go in for a vet appointment to have a "mysterious lump" checked out on Saturday morning. Mom is more stressed out than daddy which is really weird because mom is most known for her "bowl half full" theory of daddy's "bowl IS empty" theory when it comes to life in general.

Anyway, we spent most of the evening stressing about the "what if's" and mom cried a little because she is soooooooooooooooo emotional and dad spent time calming her down. Dad tried to lay out the good, bad and ugly of the situation and tried to reassure mommy by saying..."no matter if it is cancer, we will pay for it and deal with it"..." he is our boy and it will be ok".!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT????( mommy says).

There is no question mom and dad will do anything to take care of us so dad's comment was a little out of place. After all, men aren't very good at FULLY understanding women's feelings/ mom tells us.

The night ended with tears and worry. We all feel mom and dad's emotions and as a result I was worn out. I showed signs of the stress which had worn on me and I got real tired/restless.

As you can see from my newly poster photo, my family takes the time to make sure we are all ok before we go to sleep.

Tonight I will spend my evening praying for my brother Braun and hoping that tomorrow's vet appointment is a good one...not a bad one.

Love to all my Dogsters!


Back from the vet today

I had to go back to the vet today for my dew claw. It was not that great as the nail had split all the way down and the doc had to take it. I was very scared but handled it very well. Dad said I was all teary eyed but I told him that wasn't tears, that was drool that had somehow made its way up instead of down. Nonetheless, the doc was so proud of how tough I was that he gave me a camouflage bandage! LIKE A MARINE! Hoooraaahh! Mom plans on adding a video of me having a mini panic attack at the vet's office but that proves nothing...all Marines get a little nervous before they go into battle!!! Some just show it more than others! I have to rest and take it easy all day so I am off to take a nap with mommy. Love to all my Dogsters!


The paw took a turn for the worst!

Well my furriends, I was all full of good news last weekend when we went to the vet to check my dew claw but...turns out things got worse. Mommy and Daddy came home today and we all went out for a yard run and when I came back in I had blood on all of my paws. Mom freaked out and started checking all my paws. When she got to the source of the blood it was the dew claw that was swollen last week. Vet didn't find a tear or a break last week so we were very excited but when mom and dad soaked me in epsom salt in the tub and got a better look it seems the nail is separated from the pad at the bottom area. Mom is upset!

Mom and Dad cleaned it up and put the cream on it. After than they wrapped it up so I would not mess with it tonight (and to keep the blood from flowing) so we can rest and head to the scary doc first thing tomorrow morning. BUMMER! Mom is worried I will have to be a "conehead" for a while but if that is the worst part...I guess we will be ok with that.

Will keep you updated. Love to all my Dogsters!

Though I didn't accept the idea of going to the vet well, turns out it was a good idea. Mom and Dad know best! Anyway, we took the dreaded visit and turns out there was no tear and no break!!!!!!!!!! Doc told Mom and Dad to continue the epsom salt soaks and all should be fine in a week or so! Mom and Dad were so glad things turned out so well they went o Cracker Barrel for breakfast and brought FANTABULOUS leftovers to us! I think my other paw hurts now...will that get me more Cracker Barrel????????????

I am injured and mommy doesn't know what to think.

Several days ago when I was playing around I yelped really loud and, as always, mommy and daddy came running to my rescue. They thought I had injured my right leg as I was favoring it afterwards but it became clear it was my dew claw (I have two per paw) when mommy touched it and I yelped again. Mommy has been doing "daily inspections" of my dew claw and knew it was swollen but this morning she told me she was really worried about me. Turns out the swelling is worse and the redness is worse. She told daddy that if this did not look better by tomorrow evening we have to go to the vet Saturday morning. I asked her to PLEASE come on here and ask all my buddies if they have ever had an experience like this or ever heard of an experience like this and if so, do they have any advise. I ask for your help b/c I am VERY scared of the vet. I literally have a panic attack and hyperventilate and it breaks mom's heart. If I have to go...I have to go. But, we just thought we would ask on here first. Love - Tina.


The Bear turned on ME!

As you are all aware, Daddy got me (and mommy) a HUGE bear for Valentine's Day. I spent a lot of time with this bear trying to teach it the "ropes" and would you believe it turned on me?? I had no choice but to defend myself!!!! It all started when I told her she needed to lose a few pounds - after all, I didn't want her to be forced to eat diet food like my fursis Austin when she gained too many pounds. Well, bear was obviously offended and without warning she jumped me. She had me in a headlock at first but my Military training came into play. After about 30 minutes of wrestling I had (1) pulled some of her stuffing out (2) gave her the doggie elbow and (3) pinned her to the ground! To celebrate my victory I layed on top of her and had dad take a photo. I have a feeling this is not the end of our dispute. But, as it stands now...Tina score 1...Bear score 0. I hate to embarrass her but I needed mommy to poet my picture to sho this actually happened. I am a little ashamed that I have such a big smile on my face but "it is what it is". To be continued.
