So long sanity

All signs point that I have completely lost it.  These pups have flipped my world upside-down and I'm still trying to get caught up...mostly on sleep :)  Just Monday, I completely forgot about a dermatologist appointment.  It wasn't until I was heading to zumba that it dawned on me that it was earlier that day.  I've never forgot anything like that before...I can't believe it happened!  Now, I'm too embarrassed to call back and reschedule.

Perhaps I shouldn't admit this, but I find myself just talking to the puppies.  Of course they don't answer back but they look at me so intensely that they must understand me or be trying to (sometimes I just get blatantly ignored as well).  I sure hope the neighbors don't hear me when I'm outside with them.  Its constantly "No", "Leave It", "Hurry Up" (that's our go potty key words), "Don't eat that", "Don't bite me", "Good Girl", "Good Boy", "Come Here", "You guys are driving me nuts!". 

Plus, I look like hell.  Even Will said I did! (thanks dear)  Its amazing if I actually get dressed during the day.  Most days I'm in my PJs.  Why put on clothes when they are just going to get covered in dog hair (from lugging them in and out for potty breaks), drool, poop or even get chewed on (for some reason, Stella especially likes to bite my pants - we are working very hard to break this habit!).

But, oh the joy when they wake up in the mornings! They are just ecstatic to see us (mostly me, hehe).  They just wiggle and wiggle - not just their mini tails, its a full out body wiggle! 

Speaking of them, the sleeping dragons are now awake - time to take them out!

SmartVest Review & CF Appointment

Well, here is the long awaited official review of my new SmartVest SQL.  I don't have any current or updated vests to compare this too, so my feed back is based upon what I like/dislike versus the old and out-dated vest.

Pros:
Weight - it is MUCH lighter than my ancient Hilrom Vest.  By all means, it isn't light but definitely a great improvement from my older model.  I can at least carry it myself!Comfort of vest - the fabric is much softer and less scratchy when wearing it.Technology - it has a digital screen, so I can set the time and know for sure how long I'm using it (the old one had a knob to turn).  Also, I can set different programs based on how long I want to use it, etc.  It's quieter!!  Will still doesn't enjoy watching TV with me while I vest, but I don't have to turn the TV to its max volume!  And, the dogs aren't scared of this one as much!There is only 1 hose...so I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…

Pupdate

My little bully babies are growing up.  Sarge & Stella turned 6 at the beginning of July and T-Bone turned 8 at the end of July.

We celebrated Sarge & Stella's birthday at home with some special treats from the local pet store.  T-Bone got to be at his favorite place on his birthday (our cabin in WV).  Unfortunately I was a bad dog mom and forgot his birthday hat and treat, but he got extra loving and sang to multiple times.

T-Bone had his bi-annual check up just before his birthday and had a good report.  We are changing his eyedrops due to the formula change in what he was using - it was making his eyes red and itchy. And then, in his ear (not the one that just had surgery) we noticed a tick like thing in one of the folds. He got very irritated with us when we messed with it, so thankfully his appointment was the next day, so I figured I'd let them piss him off.  Turns out, its not a tick.  The vet said it looked just like the mass that he saw in his other ear cana…

Farewell 34

I can't believe my birthday is tomorrow!  My #35daysofdonating challenge has been so fun and rewarding - it feels like it went by so fast.  I loved receiving input from my friends and family about organizations that mean something to them.  I even learned about organizations I didn't know existed.  In the last 34 days (35 tomorrow) I hope I've made a difference somewhere.  I know I didn't get to donate to all the suggested places, and I'm sorry if I missed one you wanted!  I wish funds were endless and I could do this every day forever!!!

You can check out my list of recipients here.
