Another Pupdate

Its obvious that my life clearly revolves around my puppies these days.  I'm OK with that.  In fact, I love it...I wouldn't trade it for anything.  So, for those that don't love hearing about my adorable bulldogs - sorry, I'm at it again!

Will and I went out of town Sunday night for a fabulous adventure to the BMW factory and driving school (more on that later).  So, we decided since it was just a night that we would board the puppies at the kennel, which is part of the vets office.  I was nervous of course and teared up dropping them off.  I had not been away from them since we got them...but I was a big girl and got over it.  Anyway, we made it back to pick the pups up on Monday evening before they closed and man were they happy to see us!  Those little butts just wiggled!

We were afraid the kennel would confuse them on their potty training - well, it did that plus some.  Monday evening they both had an accident in the house - Sarge found it fun to pee on the new bed I had bought them - how sweet.  The kennel was dry when they woke up Tuesday morning, but it went downhill from there.  I noticed Stella was squatting a lot when I took her out - I'm talking 7-8 times in just a few minutes.  She was straining a bit as well.  Then when I let them out at lunch, the kennel was soaked, they were soaked...what a mess!  So out we went and I noticed Stella was acting funny again when she was trying to use the bathroom.  She ended up rolling on her back for me to rub her belly and I noticed there was blood :(  So, a quick call to vet and they suggested I collect urine samples to bring in - haha!

So, I grab some plastic cups and stalked the pups in the yard...poor things weren't sure what I was doing.  I wasn't able to get much from Stella other then some drops of blood...Sarge gave me a nice sample like a good boy.  So, I loaded Stella up (since I didn't get enough from her) and took Sarge's sample to the vet.  Thankfully, Stella had an accident on the vets floor so they used that rather then having to extract it from her - ouch! 

Anyway, turns out Stella has a bladder/urinary track infection :(  So, she now has 3 medicines to take to help clear it up.  Poor girl, you can tell she doesn't feel good and its so sad to watch her trying to go to the bathroom.  She has no control too!  Will was holding her on Tuesday night and she peed on him!  I found it rather funny as he was gagging...its just some pee and he's cleaned it up off the floor...I guess its different when you are peed on!  However, she did get me too that evening and I had no gagging reflexes...guess us moms are tougher!

She's starting to feel better but still not able to make it in her kennel without an she and Sarge are sleeping separately until she is all better.

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.

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 I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…


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.
