Falling behind big time!

I can't believe it has been so long since I put a paw to the keyboard!

Ok, Mom has been really busy, but that's no excuse, right?

Quick review:
Mom and Dad went on vacation and brother Fred stayed with us for over a week.
Mom and I collaborated on a book. We're going to give out copies of it for Christmas! Mom says when we get it to a certain level we will offer it for public consumption.
I've developed "spells." My head tilts over and I have a bit of trouble with my balance. First time this happened, Mom freaked out and rushed me to the vet. By the time she got there I was mostly recovered and the vet didn't have a clue...gave Mom some printed info on "seizures." Didn't really describe my problem at all. I've had two incidents since then, each less severe...I think it's because none of us are afraid of them now. They last for about 2 hours, then go away like they were never here.
MissyLu had blood in her urine. Same vet kept her overnight to try for a urine sample. When there was one, nothing showed up. Mom caught a sample with blood and took it in for testing. After three days, she called and was snipped at by tech: "we haven't got results yet, we'll call when we do." That was a couple of months ago.

Mom says we need to find a new vet.

Muttley Returns Home!

Muttley didn't stay with us very long. His human dad really missed him, so when a turn of time took the kids away, Muttley went back home. That's good for everyone, but Mom was a bit sad. She gets attached.

What? Another Pug?

I really can't believe it! And now we are 6. Six Pugs, that is. Oh, it's a sad tale.

Meet Muttley!

Muttley has been here before. Several months ago we babysat for him while his parents took a little trip.

Now it seems his mom's daughter moved in with a couple of her kids and the kids are mean to Muttley. Poor Muttley, what's a Pug to do? His tail just drooped all the time!

So now he lives with us. He's OK. I've had to let him know who's the boss a couple of times, but he learns quickly. I think I'll let him stay.

Pippin in my place!

Well, they did the Dog Walk without me! Pippin went in my place. It was his first walk and I hear he was a bit nervous at first, but really did very well. He walked the whole three miles! WAY TO GO, PIPPIN!

MissyLu went along. She did most of the trek in her stroller. She's really spoiled!

One of our local TV news channels was there, KXAN and according to their newscast the next day, we didn't make the Guiness Book of World Records, but we did raise about 80 thousand dollars for the Texas Hearing and Service Dogs.

I Can't Believe My Ears!

I overheard something this morning that really disturbs me. Mom reminded Dad that the Mighty Texas Dog Walk was tomorrow. Dad said something about a big day for MissyLu and PIPPIN?

Wait just a cotton pickin' minute! I've been doing the Dog Walk since 2003! Why am I not included tomorrow?

A good weekend

I went to the donut shop twice.
Hey! It's the highlight of my week!
The Pug puppy we were babysitting went home Sunday afternoon.

Signing up on Technorati

Mom's gathering us all together. It's all too technical for me!

We've got company!

Dad's always volunteering. Sometimes he volunteers Mom. His latest volunteer is for a weekend of babysitting with little Miss Harlee, a Pug puppy belonging to a fellow worker.

Isn't she cute? Of course, I've had to remind her a few times that I'm the boss, but she settled in quickly and joined the pack.

Looky, Looky!

Here's Sonny! He's a two year old gelding, about 36 - 38 inches tall.
Isn't he grand? Mom says he looks like a small unicorn.


And here is Smokey!

She's a one year old filly.
About 34 - 36 " tall.


They're so cute!

Oh! The Excitement!

I have two new friends! Mom and Dad rescued two mini horses! Haven't met them yet 'cause Mom says they need some time to settle down after their move.

Would you of them ( white, two-year old gelding) was named "Buster!!" That, of course will have to change, but should be no big deal for him because he was mostly ignored and probably has no idea what he was called. Mom hasn't a clue yet as to his name...she says he will give it to her when he's ready. His companion, a cute little one year old mare, practically shouted out "Smokey!" when Mom thought about a name for her. It fits her coloring right now and friend Valerie says she might turn gray as she matures.

Double Woof!

Hard Times Blogging!

Arf! I don't know what's going on. I was cruising along, keeping it simple. Then BONGO! I've got all sorts of changes to deal with. I've typed in a totally different language, lost my password, grown new legs..(OK, that's an exaggeration) and in general been totally confused.

Hey! I'm a dog...I live in the here and now. I don't care if you change servers, ownership, tags, etc...just keep thing stable for me, OK? Sheesh! You tax my patience!

The Day the Rains Came

In the wee small hours of Monday, March 12, we had a flood. Mom and Dad pulled their first "all nighter" in years, but it wasn't for a party. A drought-breaking flood, over 5 inches of rain in just a few hours, flooded the downstairs area of the house.

Mom and Dad stayed up all night bailing, sopping and mopping water. Mom thinks the flooring in the great room area may need to be replaced.

Tuesday we had more thunderstorms. Dad was in town and Mom was minding the rain buckets that catch the roof runoff. No more water got in the house. Yay!

I'll have to keep out of the downstairs until it is all dried out. Bummer!
