I didn't get to see the other dog...they had given her to another person who will give her a good home with 7 acres to roam on so Daisy is back with me...

good afternoon......

Elsie, did you still get the kitten you were going to get when you returned from your trip?.....
It will probably take a while for Daisy to get accustomed to all of the changes in her life...especially if her first family is right next door........but she will.....Good luck....

everyone have a good day.......... emoticon

It's hard for Daisy because she was with Tammy's family for all 3 years of her life. She still hugs and loves on them when they come over. I think she is still a little confused by the change.

She has always know me as Grandma but when they brought her over here they started telling her go to Mama and she was looking for Tammy. I suggested we still call me Grandma to her. It seems to have helped her adjust. She knows who Grandma is and isn't so confused by the different names. She does love to go riding with me though. She gets real excited when I ask her if she wants to go.

good evening......

elsie, I'm so glad you have another dog, and that she's settling in so quickly. I believe every dog should have a home, and every home should have a dog. emoticon to you and Daisy.....(what a cute name)

the weather here has been so, so perfect.....I wish it didn't have to get cold, but I guess that's what I get for living in Iowa.

everyone have a good night....... emoticon

Elsie,
The dog isn't up to relocation. Plenty of TLC and co ownership and dog management sound like a triple package for everyone to wind up well adjusted. People and dog "every ones".

TV feature:
I just watched the piece on 60 minutes. Quite interesting! I want to hear about more studies and tests in the U.S. I'll say that their lives are literally in our hands.

Did anyone watch 60 Minutes last night? The third topic was dogs and their abilities. Very informative and inspirational. What did you think?

Daisy was really nerved up last evening and just couldn't settle down so Tammy came over and took her back for the night. They brought her back this morning while I was in church and she seems much calmer today.

Looks like I'm getting a dog.....shepherd mix

My daughter (next door) has 2 dogs that have become antagonistic with each other so I guess I'm getting one of them. The good thing is that they are well acquainted with the girls so I don't have that to worry about. They have been trying to get me to take her for a couple of weeks and now they are really pushing it. I don't want either of the dogs to have to go to the Humane Society so I will try taking Daisy.

Laurie------check the nutritional content of the dog food. If it is mostly fillers she will still be hungry. You may need to check on a better nutritional food.

Hi there! I have recently looked at my dog and decided that she's getting too heavy. I started coming home at lunch a couple of days a week and taking her for a walk. It's only been about 2 or 3 weeks of this. Yesterday and today she just started eating the cat food. The cat food has been in the same place for a year now and she's never blatantly eaten it like this before. I'm trying to help her loose a little with just a little extra activity. Any ideas why the cat food now? And this is how sneaky she is - yesterday, she got caught with her face in the cat food so I took away most of her dog food. Cat food is higher in calories. She can't eat everything. Today, she ate her food, then waited until I got in the shower to go eat the cat food. She got 2 full bowls of food. Sneaky!! I have added an obstacle to the cat food which should do the trick and allow the cat some food of her own. Thoughts? Suggestions?

~Laurie~

good morning.....

Maggie had her annual physical yesterday....she has developed a heart murmur. Dr. Jack says it's probably age related and on a scale of 1 to 6 (1 being slight and 6 being severe) she has a 2. He said not to worry now and told me what to watch for, because it's possible that it won't get worse.....it was still a shock.....I think I've got the worm problem taken care of, but I have to get a stool sample to take to him to test....other than that she is good.....she is usually hard to handle when we go to the vet, but she was exceptionally good yesterday, even through a blood draw, 2 shots and a kennel cough preventative treatment.....even Dr. Jack said so!!!!...I was so proud of her.

everyone have a good day............ emoticon

good evening......

Elsie, that's what my vet said....I didn't realize that.....I didn't think a house dog would get worms......I learned something new.....I guess an old dog can learn new tricks!!!.....lol...

it's been so wet here....mosquitos are terrible this year, and she did have a go round with fleas this summer.....it could have been either one....she didn't stand a chance.....

everyone have a good night.......... emoticon

Wed SEPT 24th: 147.5

Yesterday was SO very gorgeous I HUNG OUT on benches around Centennial Lake just to be in the day. What a treat that walk and outing was. Today threatens rain so I will go round Wilde Lake one time, which is closer and shorter from my front door.

Thanks for the reminder to keep my eye on the stools for any worm activity. With Oscar now here along with Oliver I need to monitor them a little more closely. Peace and for anyone who honors tonight, HAPPY NEW YEAR.

good evening.....

not much going on here....our town has an Applefest this coming Saturday, so there will be a lot of strangers in town....my husband's daughter and her husband will be here....it's their first Applefest so i'll be walking the town on that day for sure.

Dale, good for you, getting out and walking......no matter how slow you go, you're lapping someone that's sitting on the couch.

My Maggie got worms somehow...it scared me half to death, but the vet says it's no big deal, most dogs get them at sometime in their life. She just has to take a couple pills (tomorrow is the last one) and she'll be good. The vet said he's had a lot of dogs come in with worms this year...probably because it's been so wet.....

everyone have a good night............ emoticon

Sun SEPT 21st: 148.5

in exactly one month from today I will become 66; stop the clock, please!

my dog Oliver (white 9 lb maltese/bichon mix) and
tenant dog Oscar (black 25 lb pug with bulldog body)
continue to work through cohabitation which includes toy sharing,
which was not tolerated at all with any other dog

so my little boy is growing up a bit instead of playing the spoiled brat

my human tenant, Oscar's owner, is moving in this week, and it will
be different for me, so it'll be my turn to adjust sharing next

walking wilde lake park daily at this time of year, rebuilding my stamina,
and confidence is strengthening slowly, too.

I'm most grateful that my stroke didn't paralyze me, just numbs under stress or tiredness.

as my little old grandmother used to always say: "At least I can still walk!"

After Indy got neutered he was pretty much up and running the same day. Even the vet commented when he left the office that he was unusually rowdy for a pup in his condition! We couldn't leave the cone on him for more than a day. He figured out how to get it off and that was the end of that! I did like how much more than usual he let me touch his face when he had the cone on.

I know it can be tough losing a pet. Just like the loss of any loved one it takes time to let go. There is no need to rush to replace him because in all reality, you can't truly replace him, only patch that initial void. Keep your chin up!

Thought I'd drop in with a quick hello...

My house still feels empty even though my granddaughter and her 2 babies have moved back in with me.

DJ will be gone 2 months Saturday and I still miss him and sometimes even look for him.

I haven't had time nor the inclination to look for another dog since getting back from Michigan last week. DJ was such a major part of my life that right now I just don't garner up the interest to go looking. I'm sure that will come in time---God's time not mine...

Take care.....Elsie

Fri SEPT 12th: 147.5 lbs

BALLS all gone. Sad day will slip away. I had Oliver done about 7 years ago and I WAS SAD. Funny I think but genuine.

Oliver and new tenant dog Oscar are progressing well with the adjustments to cohabitating. Some funny stuff has gone down. When Oscar's owner moves in I hope it will continue well.

I made my decision and tenant MATT can move in on the 19th. His dog OSCAR is already with me. I'll have to get a picture of these housemates once Oliver's hair grows a bit. I just had him shaved off yesterday for the last summer scalping. Winter cuts aren't this clipped.

Good Morning,

For the next few days I will be back at Mae's so will have internet access.

It is cloudy and misty rain here which isn't good for her granddaughter's outdoor wedding this evening.

I am enjoying playing with their dog, Jake. It is so odd playing with a small dog. Jake is a lot of fun as he loves chasing his ball.

Friends for the Mama plus chocolate lab mud fun ! Way to go.

Mom flew with dog quincy, boston terrier, to boston for the week to relax at my brother's house.
I'm home with oliver wondering if I can come up with a getaway for us at least by the weekend. (sort of an empty nest feeling having them gone)


off into the world with coffee mug and oliver after I drink some up first.....

I am coming off of a great weekend spent with people I haven't seen in ages. Really nice to reconnect and share the news of our engagement. The dog loved the weekend too since she got to run on a particularly muddy beach. She likes to pretend she's a chocolate lab.

On that note, who knew I'd ever be interested in wedding planning? I guess the Internet just makes everything so accessible, so I've been finding myself getting sucked into the black holes of Pinterest and Etsy for ideas.

good afternoon......

I how everyone is well and rested after the weekend......my painting has been completed and I;m doing my fall cleaning as I put everything back in place so it's going to be a mess for another week or two, but it'll be good to be ahead of the game this year, emoticon

I think my Maggie brought a few fleas home from the groomer last time. I put frontline on her but she seems to be scratching more than usual.(I've been looking, but I haven't actually seen any on her).....I think I need some of the frontline spray to reactivate each week for a couple weeks.... emoticon

everyone have a good day........... emoticon

Just walked Wilde Lake with my Oliver and Mom dealt with her Quincy. She is taking care of him during the day now and I've bee trying to get my life's sea legs grounded! Those 2 intense weeks totally used every ounce of me up.

Because I came across Oliver's best dog friend at the lake, both dogs went free and enjoyed a third of the path off the path. Oliver is content, I got my evening walk done in the morning since I doubt I'll have time tonight.

R MESS,
I'm working on regulating myself back to health and it's way slower than I want and need it to be. But it is what it is. At least our MARYLAND weather has been a real blessing overall this summer, and I'm most grateful for that.

Good morning, all: Had a visit from my JRT, Scruffy, in the middle of the night. She usually sleeps with my husband (51 years together but not necessarily for sleeping). At 1:30 there was a scratching on my bedroom door. I let her in and she immediately jumped on my bed. Since I sleep with my windows and drapes wide open, I saw what she meant. We had a thunderstorm to the south. Not much in the way of rumbling yet but enough to scare her. She rootled around in my pillows but eventually calmed down after about an hour enough to curl up in the pit of my stomach where she slept for the next 4 hours, giving me approx. 6" of king size bed. Since she was finally calm, I didn't want to move to the other side and stir her up again. Surprised I could sleep but I did. Nothing like being tucked up around a nice warm clean dog. Around 5:45 she went to devil Daddy for her breakfast. I'll be snoozy today. Hugs, Judi

Smile, it's contagious

It's been an enjoyable week here at my sister's with some sadness since by selling my 5ht wheel I am losing another connection to my husband.

I have been able to talk about DJ with just minimal tearing---today is 4 weeks now (I promise I won't constantly carry on about him).

Last week I was so cold but this week so far has ben very nice. Rain is expected tomorrow.

Yesterday Mae (my sister) and I went to a big flea market after church. it was a total joke. Things were so over priced that it wasn't funny. I didn't see a lot of people buying stuff either.

Take care.....Elsie

Had a super busy weekend. But had a great day hanging out with a couple of friends, we went to bruch and just sat and chatted, it has been a long time and we were long overdue. I am super frustrated, trying to set up my printer to scan, ugh I just can not get it to work. Stilling watching the wind increase outside, waiting for the rain. Enjoy your week everyone.

Good Afternoon from Michigan,

I am here at my sister's now but will probably go to my brother's soon...I am getting the 5th wheel ready to sell because it needs more TLC than I can do.

I am missing my "Critter" (DJ) but my sister has a very playful little guy that I am enjoying right now.

Take care..............Elsie

Fri AUG 8th: 146.0

R MESS,
My mother went in for a simple surgery only to get codine drugs after strict instructions not to! She gets horribly sick from any of them and her system shuts down. I was the constant nurse to her both initially in the hospital and then all this time at home. Today is day 11 and though much has improved from the worst of it, she is certainly weak and very vulnerable. (85)

So walking her dog and mine is a 4 hour routine throughout the day then I manage a longer walk at night down by the closest lake to my house. I'm about to go get her dog now (she lives in a condo above me) and start the routines.

Our dogs give us great comfort and companionship. Their need to routinely get outside is important fresh air for me, too! We've been blesses with decent August weather so far and boy am I grateful to have low humidity.

the p tiger, dale

exhaustion is now my priority to smooth out, which I will.
the last 9 days are over and the 24/7 intensity no longer needed.

I was able to walk the dogs at night for a longer stroll so we each could sleep a little more fitfully plus I take them out exactly every 4 hours so that Mom's dog has no accidents.

Monday night we had no sleep at all, so... another night lost at the end of this intensity.

thanks for cheering me on through
so, now it's time to heal myself and keep the dogs taken care of after this 9 day spurt of extraordinary effort!

So glad the dental work didn't bother Maggie! She sounds like a trooper!

Harry and Daisy Belle were so cute last night I decided to make them my profile pic for a while...we only have her until Tuesday...we'll miss her when she leaves!

Off to take the pooches for a little walk...

Have a great day!

Pura Vida!

good evening.....

Maggie had to go to the vet today to get her teeth cleaned. The last 3 years he's had to pull teeth because her gums are receding as she gets older. I was hoping she wouldn't have to have any pulled this year, but he had to pull 2 more....She's missing almost all of the teeth in the front except 3 of her fangs, but she still has all of her 'chompers' on the sides. It doesn't seem to bother her tonight.

good evening........

I hope everyone is well tonight. It was a beautiful day here in western iowa today....I was able to get out and take Maggie for a little walk, but she has arthritis in her hips so I'm afraid to take her out for very long. I didn't think I took her too far, but I noticed she had a little limp tonight so it might have been too much. I gave her a baby aspirin tonight so I'm sure she'll feel better tomorrow.

I have no problem reading about your cats.....I love cats, I don't have any right now, but I've had lots of cats.

happy dog sitting, mrsand.........

Have to forgive me, have been away from the forum for a long time it seems. We just recently had our oldest outdoor cat disappear......want to believe some college kid catnapped him and took back home when left the college campus by our house~as opposed to him being eaten by mountain lion or coyote :(

We do have a dog, Turkey, adopted him two years ago when our baby girl dog died from gallstones and kidney failure. Trying to decide if want to stay with the team since feel need to talk about our cats too. We adopted Brutus a couple of months ago, had barely had Tilly B for a year when Spazzy, our cat disappeared. Tilly isn't taking too well to Brutus, but it is getting better. I thought the trouble would be with Turkey.....but Brutus LOVES Turkey!!! Wants to rub up on his face......and Turkey's not too sure about that lol. so far no fur has gone flying lol

Hope everyone has a great day~about to take Turkey out to play on the football field in front of our house.

I didn't mean to sound unconcerned about your lose. I haven't been on Spark People for awhile and I joined this forum before I stopped for a break. When I posted about my 2 dogs I didn't take the time to read other post. I was just trying to get back into the forum. Sorry if it sounded like I didn't care. I so understand a lose of a pet! It is so hard.

How old is Bo? My Sadie went through a terrible phase of chewing things up when she was a puppy, Destroyed several pillows, shoes, remote control. Now she only seems to tear up her dog toys. Does Bo have anything to entertain himself with while you are a way? Maybe a Kong toy that you put treats inside would keep him busy. They also have a spray that you can apply to furniture and things that is supposed to make them not want to chew it.

Hope you find some of this helpful. Good Luck! emoticon

Hi Suzi.....

I would suggest a crate for when you're gone. It sounds like major separation anxiety to me. It might just be anxiety from being in a new place, but a crate might help him feel more secure when you're not there. I'm not a dog behaviorist or vet, so this is strictly my opinion. Good luck with whatever you do.

Good afternoon....sorry to read about your loss....Last year we had to put our dog {Trooper] down. Three weeks ago we found Bo at the Pound. Bo is very smart but hates to be alone.
Last week he tried to dig up our carpet???Yesterday he chewed on 10 cucumbers...made a big mess! He is so well behaved when we are home. I put a gate up but he just jumped over it. Today I took him for a 2 mile fast walk then headed to water aerobics.....came home to a new dog mat chewed to shreads. Any ideas???I could use a little help.
He will walk, run with my bike, sit, stay, roll over, and crawl. He does not jump on the sofa or bed. Is it time for the BOX?

I need to change-and with that said....lets do this!

good morning.........

Elsie, I'm glad you'll soonl have another 'beating heart' at your house. I think of you often, and hope you are starting to feel better.

It has cooled down here a little bit, and the humidity is down. I took Maggie with me this morning when i walked. It was still pretty cool when we got back, so i mowed the lawn....i think I'm going to call it good for today.

everyone have a good day............ emoticon

Rhonda,

I'm not looking right now because I'm getting ready to go to Michigan for 3 to 4 weeks and it would be too disturbing to uproot one several times in a short period of time. After I get back my daughter has a kitten for me. She is keeping it until I return so the trauma will be only 1 time.

You didn't upset me because most likely I will eventually get another dog since I haven't been without one for any length of time in nearly 30 years..

Today, I managed to leave and come back into the house with minimal tears.

good morning....

I'm glad you are feeling a little better, Elsie. I follow the Joplin Humane Society and Golden Paw on facebook....I know you're probably not ready yet, but you might keep an eye on them...you never know when a pooch might 'speak' to you. I hope this suggestion doesn't offend you, that isn't my intent.

Just wanted to say I am so very thankful for my two dogs that I have outside. They have made my day wonderful. I was feeling down with my fibromyalgia and they always seem to brighten up my day! They are so goofy at times. One is smart and the other is called my special needs dog, because I really think she is retarded. I love her anyways!! They have made my daily walks greats. Without them by my side I wouldn't care about walking each day!

I will be taking DJ into the vet Tuesday for his final visit. He will be running and jumping again and out of pain but in the mean time I will be in tears. I pray I have the strength to do this. He will get to see "Dad" again.

good morning....

back from Missouri, company is gone, and I'm back....it's been a rough 2 weeks on Maggie, but right now she's snoring in her bed behind my chair so she'll be fine. I had 4 additional people in an 800 sq ft house, we were crammed in here like sardines!!!!

I hope everyone is well, especially you and DJ, Elsie.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY OLIVER emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

7 years old in the 7th month of the 14th year, on the 14th day emoticon

Went away for a group gathering Saturday and by Sunday found it was too much stimulation (voice noise and tight stuffy quarters) even though it's been 3 1/2 months since I had my stroke. I'm still whacked out tired but have my gym appt this morning so here I am. Hope to nap later.

Another day when DJ hasn't done real well....too hot for him...

God's gift to you: a clean slate every day: your gift to God: what you put on that slate....

Most people watch what they eat from Christmas to New Year's when they should be watching what they eat from New Year's to Christmas


Do your best today; do better tomorrow

The more I sit...the hungrier I get!!!!!

To lose my seat, I must move my feet!!

The difference between "TRY " and "TRIUMPH" is a little "UMPH"..
