Whew!

I have some photos of Yogi, and I've just got to warn you I'm blinded by unconditional love for this boy and think he is the cutest little puppy ever! I know a lot of you will think your pups are just as cute or cuter, and I totally understand it, but... who can resist this little munchkin who gives me kisses when he's really happy?!!













I love my little Yogi Bear!
I know that I am just catching up, but these are such cute pictures of Yogi being such a ham!

I hope that Toby continues to improve. I've had to revise my answers several times. I'm finally caught up now.

Toby was examined by his long term and regular vet today and we will be trying a few new things to help him absorb his food better and keep some weight on him. He's down to 52 lbs. and looks his best in the upper 50s. If these things don't work I'm not sure what we will do next for him. He's got his mojo energy back and is even playing more with Yogi, but his digestive system is a wreck right now. We'll be running some tests next week to check for improvement. Toby is one of her most sensitive patients in terms of foods and even anesthesia.

Yogi continues to mesmerize us with his charming personality and looks, and he continues to be the canine land shark most puppies are at this age!

TOBY and YOGI

I hope Toby will be feeling tip-top soon-Poor Guy!
I am sure Toby is losing lots of calories, chasing his adorable brother Yogi around!
I would say that Yogi is a NATURAL with the camera!

Thank you and everyone for your well-wishes and concern for Toby. I really do appreciate it! Toby is doing better, keeping his food down, and enjoying his new meds. They must taste good because it's gobble gobble at meal times! He is basically IBD (no confirming biopsy) with other digestive enzyme deficiencies so we get these episodes periodically. It's hard to see him hurting so much and I am so grateful for his long-term vet, who knows his history so well, for approaching this the way she is. She's only in the clinic one day a week (small kids) and was out for a few months on a medical leave. She told me that she thought we could get him to hold food, but we probably won't see any long-term improvement in his total digestive health and weight for a while until these new meds kick in. So I'm being patient, giving him extra loving and attention and just keeping the long-term goal in mind. I'm hoping the tests we run next week show the beginnings of overall improvement.

He's back to playing with Yogi and I'm seeing a lot of initiation on Toby's part! It's a dreary rainy day today, with no breaks for a walk, but we made some temporary modifications to our upstairs so he can get some activity. He has a ball run now on our upstairs bridge. I'm hoping he can teach Yogi that bringing the ball back is a GOOD thing!

We also downsized Yogi's potty plateau last weekend and hubby got some of the old astroturf out and put it out in the one dry area underneath our eaves. Yogi took to the temporary potty area immediately and christened it very well. It makes it much easier for me to stay dry!! Our yard has standing water so this is a blessing that he figured it out so quickly!

I have some photos to post as soon as I download from the camera! Both dogs may look like drowned rats since we took them before the astroturf was placed in the dry spot!

Here is 12 week old Yogi in his new and improved (downsized) potty plateau:



Here is a poorly framed photo of our canine land shark yesterday morning, with Toby- he's all teeth! That's hubby still in PJs making the bed! That rug collects dog fur and is back to dark blue today. I think everyone should have a dark rug so they know when it's time to vacuum!


More jaws, this time last night, when Toby initiated play. If you look closely you can see a little of Yogi's treat spot on his tongue:


Toby succeeded in tiring the little one out! Good Toby! The PVC pipe in the background is protecting our sockets and electrical wires from puppy teeth!


He doesn't yet have the concept down for retrieving balls. They are fun to chase, but bringing back? No thanks!


And finally, Yogi has a girlfriend, an older woman by a few months, named Gabby who lives with Sally's Mom. Gabby sent Yogi a couple of puppy nylabone teething bones with instructions to chew those, not his Mom or Dad's arms or hands. Yogi took to the chew pictured below like doggie crack! He's in heaven, loves his Gabby girl and loves his Aunt Sally's Mom for thinking of him. He even loves his Mom for opening the package today- he was in her arms as she went to the mailbox and knew it was addressed to him!
