Pupdate

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.

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…
