Tessa got loose from the treadmill again today. I wish I could figure out how she does that. Then Bella chewed up one of the only two leashes we have for them. I thought dogs were suppose to be easier than kids.

They call it a diet, but it's really my life.

We were gone for the weekend and when we got home Sunday afternoon, all the dog, Sparky, could think of was his WALK!!!! (his dog sitter feeds, plays, but Sparky doesn't get the long walk he usually does with my husband) I wish I were always that enthused about the daily walk!

My vet prescribes Benadryl for my Rat Terrier, but only when she is having a hard time with allergies. She's so use to taking it now, that it does not even make her sleepy or tired any more.

My husband and I have taught all our dogs to walk on the treadmill. It is GREAT for keeping them calm enough to work with. I would HIGHLY suggest it if you can. We even taught our three-legged boxer to walk on the treadmill and she is the one who has taught herself how to unplug it and sometimes get herself un hitched from it. So don't worry that it's excessive. I've read that in the wild they walk 5 miles or more each day.

So far doing good with the changes. I had a couple bad weeks recently, but I learned a couple things and then just tried to ride out the storm. This week was much better and I think I'm gonna wait a little while for the next change to give my body a little time to catch up.
.
I've also been noticing a change in the way my clothes fit and how my body feels in general, but I told myself not to get my hopes up or to get upset if I didn't actually loose weight. I got on the scale and lost 5lb. I'm so excited. That's the most I've lost at one time since I've been on Spark.

Lorelai, our Blue Heeler, is 4 months now and about to drive me nuts. She's in most of the time except when the weather is warm but, then when she comes in, she's just so excited which I can understand. Wondering if anyone has given their dog Benadryl to calm them down. We use to give it to Cinderella because of her itching.

Hello All,

I am sorry for the long time of not posting. I just went back to the doctor yesterday. He says that it is looking good and that I only need two more weeks in the cast. After that I can start therapy. I have put up another blog explaining everything a lot more details. It is called Dot's Updates.

Welcome to all the new members.

I hope that all the animals are doing ok. I am sorry to hear about the cat that needed to be put down. That is a really hard decision to make.

Hope all is well with you all. I say prayers everyday for all of you. I hope that you all are doing ok. I am still just typing with one hand, anfd that one hurts as well.

Hope everyone can enjoy their day

Best wishes to all!


I will keep you all in my Thoughts and Prayers

Hope all our pets are healing up well. Took my dog to the vet today for excessive itching and an ear infection. She thinks it's all related and probably an allergy of some kind. Not sure how far I'm going to be able to afford to go with this, hope we figure it out sooner rather than later.

SHANNON: I'm sorry that your puppy is a bladder infection, I hope that you can get a sample and the vet her all fixed up soon.

That's very cool that you were able to get the microchiping done for free. emoticon

We took Bullet to the vet the day before yesterday and she said that it might be infection, she put him on an antibiotic. So now he is taking the anti biotic & the antiinflamatory. I'm really praying that this is going to take care of it, as we don't want him to have surgery. The vet is not even sure that they could do surgery because of the thing being right on his eyelid. The only great thing, is he seems to be in no pain.

SHANNON, when DH fell from his power chair he fell onto his hip on hard tile. But nothing was broken, thankfully. He does have a huge bruise and says it is sore. So when I am transferring him from one place to another I try to take extra care with that hip.

BECKA:I'm SO SORRY emoticon that you had to have your cat put down. That is awful, I know. The year before last one of our dogs passed away in May, then my mother passed away in August, and we had to put down our 14 year old cat in December. Not a very good year for us. I know that all this is God's will, but sometimes knowing that still does not make death any easier.

emoticon to the team BECKA. Were glad to have you with us. (By the way, our vet's name is Becka. We call her Dr. Becka)

emoticon for taking care of and loving your physically disabled Boxer. So many people would not do that. We have had a few disabled pets over the years, and really, they are not all that much more difficult to take care of then able-body pets. And if you love them, as we do all of our (past & present) pets it does matter. emoticon

Everyone take care.

Congrats on the new puppy, that is such an exciting time.

Prayers going out to the one with the sick puppy. I just had to have a cat put down and I pray you don't have to go through the same thing. Good luck.

Also, I'm new to the team. I have a three-legged boxer and a long-legged Weimaraner. Along with a very fat cat.

Starr: How's your little one's eye? Did your DH get hurt when he fell out of chair?

Khloe was spayed and micro-chipped this past week. I went through the animal shelter due to cost. Vet office would've cost about $200 for her size. So Wed had to have her there b4 7:00AM. Picked her up Thursday afternoon. The van was late returning them and there were all these anxious pet parents waiting outside.

I take the shelter goodies when I find collars on sale and they've received things from some of my furbabies who have passed on. I've been taking them some of Kodak's sweaters and coats and things..........anyhow, I took a bag in for them while I waited and the lady at the desk told me they hadn't accepted my spay voucher. Had to use the place listed on it. So, she spoke to her boss and the boss said is this the lady who's always donating things to us. He said, "you're not to accept any money from her." So, the entire spay and microchip was free. I was so humbled.

Khloe finally arrived......she was soaked in urine. Poor puppy has bladder issues which we are trying to figure out source of. She potties every 10 to 20 min when she's awake. Have been trying to get a sample on her all week. Gonna try again in the morning. If I can't get it this time, I'm gonna ask vet office if I can drop her off so they can get it from her.

Hay Jodibear, I hope that you had a wonderful & special couple of days off of work to spend with your fur-baby. Hooray for the puppy-dogie.

One of my little ones needs prayers today. I rushed him to the vet last night because he has a cyst looking thing over his eye, on the eyelid. The vet took a sample and said that it not a cyst, it's too hard. My DH fell out of his power chair yesterday, so I am hoping that maybe Bullet got startled thinking that DH was going to land on him so he startled away from the area and in the process his his eye/head on the power chair or a piece of furniture. Causing a nasty goose-egg. The doctor gave him some anti-inflamatory and said that he wanted to see him back in a day or two if it is not considerably better.

Hugs to everyone,
Starr

Where has the time gone? Sorry, I try to check in more often than this!

Kaysia is all healed. Only took a few days. She is such a good girl and is very sensitive. My janitor hasn't been in to work for 3 days and Kaysia is so upset that she hasn't seen him. She's even had to be coaxed to eat a few times. that's just her though, anything out of her norm upsets her. Since Kodak died in November, she has become super protective of the pup. If Khloe is out in the yard and doesn't come right in, Kaysia has to go look for her. Kaysia will probably need more prayers than Khloe will when Khloe goes in for spaying next Wed.

I use this place through the Animal Shelter that picks up the pets at the shelter and transports them to a different facility. They get fixed and then transport them back the next day. Khloe will prob be a little upset because she is such a baby. She cries about everything and since she was in two shelters before the age of 10 weeks, I'm sure she will have a little anxiety about being dropped off. Thankfully, she will be out for the surgery and then reunited the next day.

Starr, thank you for the Valentine.

Dot, I'm continuing to pray for you!

Hello All,

Happy Valentines Day to you all.

Starr, thank you so much for the prayers.

I am doing a little better. Today the pain is better. I just hope that it stays that way.

I have put up a blog, titled "Dot's Hand Progress". If you have the time you can find out what is happening with me.

I am still typing with one hand so that is why I can not answer the posts for right now. I am hoping soon that I will be able to come back on full time.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Best wishes to everyone

Best wishes to all!

Hello All,

I would just like to let everyone know that I have had my surgery on Friday and am home trying to get through the pain.

I have put up a blog titled, "Dot's Hand Surgery" to let you all know how things are going. I am only going to be able to type a little with just one hand available. I have to be careful with this one too because it also has the same problem and chances are that I am going to have the same surgery on it as well.

Best wishes to all.

Hope you all have a great day.

Best wishes to all!

Hello All,

Susan, hope you are doing well today.

Shannon, hope that Kaysia is doing good today.

4 more days to go before my left thumb surgery. I am a little worried about the weather on Friday. As far as I heard last night they are predicting one or the other scenario. One says that we are going to get a major snow event, and the other is that we might just get a little snow. So I will listen on Thursday night and see what they are saying then. I am glad that Scott will be driving anyway's.

Hope everyone can enjoy their day.

The kids stayed at Gramma's last night as I had an early morning out of town function. Went to retrieve them this evening and Kaysia is limping. Looks like a cut on the pad of her paw. Almost wonder if she burned it on Gramma's floor register? Placed bag balm on it...she's not wanting to put pressure on it tonight. I hate when one of the furbabies gets injured or sick!

Dot,

I hear ya on Belle being a normal puppy. And I know that she will out grow her "puppy stages". But try telling that to my impatient 67 year old brother that. He's the one that wanted to get her, now he needs to take proper & loving care of her. He has 4 two legged kids, but did not actually raise any of them (if you know what I mean). So his patients department is kind of lacking. But he is trying with Belle, I've gotta give him that.

Hello All,

Star it sounds like Belle is a normal puppy doing normal puppy things. She will grow out of it soon. It is good that everyone feel in love with her. She sounds so sweet.

LLReed, it sounds like you got your workout. You can't tell no way that your dog is spoiled, right. I know mine is too. You can give up a lot of things for your pet. They are so great though. My Siberian Husky is so spoiled but we love him dearly. We made him that way so we are the blame for him acting like that.


Best wishes to all.

Hope everyone can enjoy their day.,

Best wishes to all!

I WASN'T going to walk today...

I usually take Cappy for a 40 min. walk before work and then he and my SO (Tom) walk me to work and come and pick me up in the afternoon. I didn't have to work today so decided not to walk in the morning; I could do it later when it warmed up a bit. Went to the chiropractor and then got busy cooking and prepping for meals tomorrow. Did 30 min. on the elliptical, 30 min. yoga, and 10 ST and decided to call it a day.

Then I looked out the front window and there was Cappy, sitting on the sidewalk looking at the door. It was 5 o'clock--time to come get me from work. I really didn't want to walk, it was only 17 degrees, but I couldn't resist. He was so excited! Oh, the things we do for our pets.

Star,
Bella sounds so much like Lorelai. Biting, chewing AND untying shoe strings. I have a wooden block that I put on top of my coffee table to keep her out of my stuff. And a laundry basket on the end of the couch. I do know it will get better soon, especially with the teething.

Shannon, Glad she didn't chew anything up.

Susan & Shannon,

I sure do understand your frusteration with your new little ones. Been there, done that.

My brother & his family just got a new puppy, 10 weeks old. They decided to get the puppy, Bella, because their 4 year old dog, Shortie, was getting major seperation anxiety when all the "humans" had to leave the house. But, they have quickly found that, now not only does Shortie a new friend and Bella has a great home, but my brother, SIL & nephew have fell in love with Bella......just as much as they love Shortie.

I was over there yesterday and Bella was bouncing around, like a normal puppy. She playing bit my DD's nose twice, chewed on fingers, shoe strings which were attatched to shoes being worn by people, ran up & down the hallway, around the livingroom, pestering Shortie (he was tired and wanted to rest, but Bella did not want to rest), playing tug-o-war with a rope with DD. Brother was laughing telling me that he has to keep his feet up on the support bar of the tray table which he keeps in front of his living room chair, otherwise Bella chews his toes! She evidently thinks that they taste really good.

Anyway, just wanted to tell you all that it will get better soon. All the 4 legged babies are well worth getting thru the puppy stage.

Hugs to everyone,
Starr

Hello All,

Susan I am so sorry to hear that your puppy tore 2 holes in your snow suit. That is too bad. She is however just a puppy and can jump on you all the time for the affection that you give to her. Puppies are very full of energy, so you have to always be on your toes. She will put you through a lot of tests. Hope all goes well with her.

Stillwaters, glad that the only thing that your puppy got into was your cloths. I would think she did a very good job for being by herself. I suppose it could of been a lot worse. She is probably going to be very smart. Best of luck with her.


Hope everyone can enjoy their day.

Best wishes to all!

Checking in....have been super busy with the BLC21 challenge, but I love this group too much to just give it up!

Had a scare the other day. Came home to find my 4 month pup loose in the house. I don't own my home so I crate my girls while I'm at work. She didn't chew anything up but my clothes were all over the house.

Any advice on bone aggression other than not to give them?

Lisa, if we had gotten one of Lorelai's sisters I'm afraid I would be totally nuts. I'm so sorry you lost one of yours.

Dot, She is a cutie, but also a little emoticon . I took her out Friday to play with her, and she managed to tear two holes in my sweat pants and top. She's so lovable at times, and then other times she just gets crazy. But she'll settle down soon, especially when she gets through teething.

Hello All,

Our temps this morning is 6 degree's. I can't wait until we get to warm up this week into the high 40's. It will feel just like summer. On Monday night into Tuesday morning we are suppose to be getting some freezing rain. I hope that the road crew take care of them before I have to go out in the afternoon. Then we are suppose to be getting a lot of rain on Wednesday when the temps go up.

Susan, I went and looked at your puppies (Lorelai) pictures. What a cute puppy, she does look full of energy too. I am sure that she likes stealing your seat on the couch. Have fun with her.

Lisa, I am glad that it worked out the best way for you. I am sure that the other dog misses his sibling too. I know how hard it is to lose a pet. It was a good thing that you have the other one to still help you along.

Stay warm everyone.

Hope everyone can enjoy their day.

Best wishes to all!

When I got my last puppy, I got a litter mate as well. My son and I were both working, so the puppy was going to spend some time alone. I thought it best to have 2. I'm glad I did. I lost one of them a little over a year ago and, at 7 years old, he's doing ok, but I'm glad I had both of them at the time.

Yes, she is full of energy! I certainly don't remember Cinderella being like this, but then that was 12 years ago.
I've posted a couple of photos of Lorelai on the team Photo Page.

Hello All,

I agree with you totally. They can at times during their puppy stages be a little annoying. Given the fact that she is teething doesn't help any. She sounds like a very sweet puppy, full of energy and all.

I wish you the best.

Hope everyone enjoys their day.

Best wishes to all!

They can be a mood booster or ... a mood buster. In the mornings, Lorelai (she's 3-months now, and a Blue Heeler) is so excited to see us. But, she's also teething which makes her very antagonistic at times. I know it's her teeth, and she'll get through it.

Hello All,


Starr, I know what you mean about the pet's. They are such great mood boosters. You are right they are there for you no matter what has happened.

You are doing such a great job taking care of your daughter and husband all by yourself. I know it can be awful tiring when you have to do it all yourself. I will pray that you don't get sick along with everyone else. I will pray that they will get well also.

Best wishes to all.

Best wishes to all!
