Pupdate

It's time for a pupdate!!! Both Sarge and Stella continue to grow daily.  Its strange because being with them everyday, it doesn't seem like they are growing right in front of me, but they are.  I was flipping through some pics on my phone last night and was in shock at how small they used to be!  They were so tiny and wrinkly, but now they are so big and wrinkly!
Sarge & Stella's first weekend with us
This week - same size bed!
Potty training is complete!  Both now understand the concept not to pee in my house - thank God!!  Stella may still have a slip up when her UTI is acting up, but she has made great progress.

Unfortunately, Stella is still battling the UTI that started back in October with her one night stay at the kennel/boarders.  She had one dose of antibiotics and some pain meds but that didn't really help the uncontrolled peeing...so she was put on some special food (Royal Canin Urinary SO) which has helped greatly, but it makes her extra thirsty which then makes her have to go potty even more.  Just last week, the vet took another urine sample to send off to the lab and discovered she still has bacteria growing in her urinary tract that was immune to the first dose of antibiotics...so, she now has a new antibiotic to help fight that bacteria.  Fingers crossed that this will be her final step to getting 100% better.

Sarge is still laid back as ever.  Its kind of strange having a puppy that can be so well behaved.  If I walk out of the room, I know he is going to be sitting in the same spot I left him when I get back...Stella, not so much.

Will has been super busy and stressed with work, so we decided to have a family outing last night to Petsmart.  The pups hadn't been there in quite a while, so it was exciting to take them and let them walk around the store.  They were a bit wild but overall pretty well behaved for their first stroll in the store.  The pups got to see a chinchilla - I was a second too slow on the pic, Stella and the chinchilla had been looking at each other, it was so cute!


Hope you enjoyed the pupate :)

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…

Hello?

I'm back!!!

Unfortunately, I've been MIA due to some family medical stuff.  We had quite a scare with my stepdad.  Thankfully, he is out of the hospital and recovering!  He will be staying with Will and I for a while so we can help nurse him back to health.


I never thought about losing a parent before.  As I grew up, I lost my grandparents and understood that I would have to worry about losing others as they too got older.  But, I never imagined being 30 and having to think about a parent leaving my life.  What a scary thought.  It definitely got me thinking.

Life is precious.  I can't sweat the small stuff.  I shouldn't worry about stupid things that really don't matter.  You never know how much time you have left in this world, so enjoy every moment that you can.  Have fun!  Let those that you love know that you love them.

I am not done with my parents.  I still need them ALL.  I don't think that will ever change though.

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…
