I'm sure you have all been dying for a pupdate!!  So, here is the first pupdate of 2012:

My sweet babies are 6 months old today - so Happy 1/2 Birthday to them!  They are getting so big - no clue what they weigh now a days, but definitely pushing 40 lbs.  Not much longer now and they will be getting spayed/neutered...I need to make that appointment before its too late!

From what I can tell, Stella's UTI is gone - hallelujah!!!  They have a lot more freedom now that I can trust both of them (to a degree).  Plus, with me being unemployed, I just hang around the house, so no need to keep them kenneled up when I'm not busy.  They will play and sleep like good little babies.  Every once in a while, they get a mischievous bug and who knows what I might find them doing: eating my plant, chewing my kitchen chair legs, or eating their toy basket.

Over Christmas, we took them to Will's parents house who have a Newfoundland puppy (although she isn't the size of your average puppy) and two Westie puppies!  So, it was definitely crazy with all those dogs in one house - but fun too!  Here's a video of Sarge and Stella playing with Abby - they just loved to wrestle each other (Sarge was barking at the girls trying to get them to behave!).

And last but not least, just a few pics:

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.

To recap my 34th year on this are some pictures of my favorite moments.
