Pupdate!

Boy, it's been a while since the last pupdate!  You all must be dying to know how my 4-legged babies are doing!! ;)

I'll start with my trouble maker...T-Bone.  He's been a good boy and getting along with Sarge and Stella...a few minor tiffs, but that is OK by me!  Unfortunately, his skin has been causing him some problems.  It started with us noticing his belly was pink and looked dry which I treated with Desitin.  It helped but not enough.  So, after 2 visits to the vet, 2 different courses of treatment, medicated baths, lots of pills, an ice cream treat and lots of kisses...it appears we are making progress.  He's finishing his course of an antibiotic and we've added an antihistamine to his daily meds to help whatever is causing his reaction.  Hopefully, it won't be permanent, just seasonal.   Here's a pic of this angel at the vet.  He has started to not like that place.  I bribe him with treats just to get him in the front door now...and last week, I had to pick him up (all 53 lbs of him) and carry him to the exam room.

Getting his bath...has to sit with the shampoo on for 10 minutes!
Ice Cream Reward for being poked and prodded at the vet.


Sarge is just the usual butterball.  His rolls are getting extra dirty...so he gets to have them wiped out even more than normal.  Don't know why they seem extra wet :(  But, we are keeping an eye on them and keeping them clean.  He has started humping Stella these past few weeks.  It's rather funny to watch, but of course we correct him and tell him not to hump his sister!
Enjoying the beautiful day with some playtime. 
I couldn't resist ;)
Stella is loving the beautiful weather.  She wants to live outside!  So, I try to give her some extra time out there to play when it's not too hot.  We've had weather in the high 70s already so she can't play outside for more than a few minutes in that heat.  I'm probably over paranoid about the heat, but I'm not willing to risk it!  She's been a good girl to her brothers...mostly.
To say that she LOVES her dad is an understatement...borderline OBSESSED!
She likes to sneak back our our bedroom during the day to nap on T-Bone's bed!


We've added coconut oil to their food!  I've read that is good for skin conditions among others benefits.  They sure seem to love it, but I don't know anything they don't like!

Overall, we have 3 happy and healthy pups!
They did this voluntarily!!

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…
