That's too bad about Rosie's infection . It's a good thing you brought her in & got the antibiotics. Wow 74lbs! Luna only weighs 64 lbs. isn't it funny how Rosie was the smallest of the litter & Luna the biggest. My vet goes by how they look & if she can see a waist??? She told me to have Luna loose a few lbs so go figure. We're getting more snow now. Hopefully it won't be that much more.
Have a good weekend everyone . Xoxo

I was able to do what Donna suggested and get her shots moved up they also did her yearly fecal sample and heart worm test checked her all out and weighed her.

She weighs 74lbs and i asked my vet who took in all her measurements and said she is at an ok weight which i have always thought she was a bit heavy so im still gonna put her on diet and once the nice weather comes get her walking like crazy. the practice is great and has many vets and some say she would be between 55-60lbs and some between 55-65lbs and this is the 1st time I've seen this vet and she says 74lbs is ok so im not sure.

We were set to get up to 8 in they called off school at 10pm wed night we got about maybe 4-5 in not bad at all Rosie loved it wormed though the snow with her snout eating it along the way lol

Donna how are the pups?
Kathleen did you take the dogs for a visit to the kennels?
Lynn- Luna is such a naughty girl lol i cannot believe she did that, hopefully she never does that again i would have been so frustrated with it.


Hugs to Rosie- xtra treats too

Ugh!! We just get some fresh snow, on the ground and have another freezing rain warning! I hate walking, on icy surfaces. Finally gave Bodie his first bath, since puppyhood. Surprisingly, went really well!! Wasn't sure, how I was going to heave an 80 lb dog in the bathtub, but, it wasn't bad. Definitely helped that he loves water!

I took Bodie to a fun,Dog Lover's Day, this morning. They had vendors, agility and trick demonstrations, along with a lure course. Bodie got to do it twice and had a blast! He had to chase, a piece of plastic, that was running, along a zip line, over jumps and through different obstacles. I definitely, have to get him into some sports this year! He loves doing that sort of thing. Out of all the dogs, I've had in my life, he is the most athletic. I couldn't believe how good, Bodie was with all the other dogs and people.

Have to show a pic of him chasing the lure, even though, the picture is not good. So hard to snap it, when he's flying towards you

Hi everyone

Just thought I'd pop in an let you know that the girls have done very well with their surgeries. Lexi was done weds and Shayla was done Thursday. I took Thursday and Friday off work (vacation days) to be home with them. Lexi slept most of the day Thursday and then they both slept most of day on Friday.

Lexi had her first BM Friday in the early evening and it was a bit soft. Needless to say everything after that was water and she wanted out every hour after that. It was a very long night. By about 4 am she was having bloody movements so i called vet first thing this morning and took her in. Took a sample with us in case they wanted it. She appeared ok when we got there. They fit us in at 11:30 and last BM was at 7 am.

They checked her heart, belly, no temperature, and she was doing ok. They gave her a shot of penicillin and antibiotics to take at home for five days. She is in a much better frame of mind tonight. Could have been the anaesthetic and stress of surgery. She had a light dinner of brown rice, beef and a bit of cheese and we'll see how that goes overnight. I'm crossing my fingers for a solid BM tomorrow.

Needless to say it's been a bit stressful. The hardest part is keeping them from rough housing with each other and jumping around. Their incisions look great and both internal and external stitches are dissolving so that's good. They trimmed their nails at the clinic so no more clicking on the hardwood floors. Oh.... Shayla weighed in at 50 lbs and Lexi weighed in at 67 lbs.

I'm so sorry Rosie has an infection. Glad you got it sorted out and got meds for her.

Glad to hear you got Bodie's eye cleared up. These guys sure keep us on our toes.

Will keep you posted on how tonight goes with tummy woes

Donna

Donna - Im glad the girls surgery is over but poor Lexi . Its a good thing you brought her back in and it probably is stress. These pups are such big babies . I hope she has a good day today and is feeling better soon. Can you maybe keep them separated so they can't rough house? We want them to feel better but then when they do they want to play?!?! Hugs to you and the pups .

Wendy - Sounds like Bodie had a great day . What fun!! He must have look fabulous after his bath and what a good boy with the doggies and people. I love it when we feel pride for our dogs . In the picture he doesn't look 80 lbs, he looks all legs What a handsome boy.

Dawn - hope Rosies infection is doing better. Usually they're better after ever just a few doses of the antibiotic.

Ugh, freezing rain here this morning . I can handle the snow but ice! Going to babysit my granddaughter tonight so my son and DIL can go out for a valentines dinner. I'll try and get some pics of Luna and Rex . Have a good day everyone. XOXO

i think i keep mixing up peoples names im so sorry lol

Wendy- Bodie looks like hes having a great a time wish they had stuff like that around here.

Donna- im glad the girls are healing well, sorry about Lexi sometimes our pups can be so sensitive.

Lynn- have a great time babysitting my mom was always begging to babysit when mine was that little, she still loves it till this day.

We have rain today but not freezing. Rosie's infection seem to be doing much better the spots are much less and she is not wanting to scratch them. so on Thursday i will really check her out and make sure the meds are making a real difference if not we have to go back to the vet.

My mom has to have emergency surgery this Thursday they found a cyst on her ovary the size of a orange so her being 66 this is uncommon according to her doc and all her tests have come back not cancer and they want to make sure with 1000% certainty that she never gets cancer, so shes having a Hysterectomy. It all started because she told her doc she was having issues holding her bladder and going frequently so he sent her for some tests and they found it. So my sister will be coming up and staying over night wed and on Thursday morning taking her over the bridge to Philly where its being done and will join them after i drop my son off at school (i have no one to drop him off for me and my hubby is out of town and cannot get home) she has to stay over night so i will pick her up friday too since my sister will have to go back to work.

Hello. Hope everyone and the pups are doing well. Must be a busy time for everyone it's been very quiet. Everything here has been well. I'm with Leah now and she's taking her morning nap so I have a few minutes. She is such a joy, Wednesday's are my favorite day of the week . Luna's been doing well. She's definitely settling down a bunch and seems to have lost her puppyhood . I've noticed her appetite seems to have increased. I'm definitely going to have to watch it. She inhales her food and looks at me like where's the rest??? Today's a beautiful day here. It's been very mild this past week. Supposed to get up to 70 by Friday. Crazy!!!! Have a wonderful week everyone. Hugs to all the pups. XOXO

Dawn - hope your moms surgery went well. I had to have that surgery a few years ago because I had fibroids .

Here's a pic of Luna visiting my MIL this past weekend UGH!!! I still can't figure out how to flip the pics!!!

Lynn, that is a sweet pic! Luna is so good, with everyone, have you thought about her being a therapy dog? I know, we broke a 30 year record for temps today! Crazy!!

Donna, hope the girls, are well on their way, to feeling normal again.

Dawn hope your Mom is recovering nicely and Rosie is doing well.

Poor Bodie has had a couple of rough days. He is, an extremely quick scavenger, when we walk and most of the time, I can catch him. This time he scarfed it back, too quick. I knew it was food and fairly small, so I let it go. Yesterday, he seemed a little quiet, but was fine on his walk and by yesterday afternoon, he started drooling, just a little and his breath had an odour to it. No temp, diarrhea or vomiting and he ate 3/4 of his dinner last night

This morning, he still raced for the ball, every time I chucked it, but he's just missing that spark to him. Took him in to Vet and she said, whatever he snagged, was probably bad. Drooling and breath were a sign of nausea and to do chicken and rice, for 24-48 hours.

I'm hoping, by tomorrow, he'll be over his sour tummy and can get back to being the fun and irritating brother to Nala.
