Black and White Sunday: What Is Love?

Love is a funny thing: you can’t see it, you just feel it.

I love Louise and Louise loves me.

I know by the way she wakes me up in the morning (by walking on me and licking my face);

how she reacts when I come home from somewhere (with crazy tail wags);

the way she looks at me with those brown eyes (so soulful and adoring);

how she relaxes when I am near.

Some scientists say that animals don’t really love, that what we see is just an attachment or bond to the owner.

But I say that isn’t true!!  I think animals love – don’t you?

Monday Mischief: Snow Day

Snow days are fun because it isn’t that cold usually. The first snow made us happy.

Sofie likes to eat the snow.

Ultimately, there were about 10″ of snow which was almost over Charles’ head, but at this point, he was still able to jump through it.

Caturday: Mini & Mr. Rabbit

Mini Cooper is anything but quiet. So catching her in this moment, while contemplating her next great troublemaking endeavor, was a gift. She is the sweetest girl. She thinks she is a dog and just wants to be in the center of everything. Diluted Tortes are a special bunch.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wordless Wednesday: Long Afternoon

Some days just go on and on. There seems to be endless time between breakfast and dinner.

Monday Mischief: Over the Mountains and Through the Woods

Over the mountains and through the woods down the highway, to grandmother’s nursing house we go;

Over the mountains and through the woods down the highway, now grandmother’s cap I spy!

Over the river and through the woods,
To grandmother’s house we go;
The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh,
Through (the) white and drifted snow!

Over the river and through the woods,
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes and bites the nose,
As over the ground we go.

Over the river and through the woods,
To have a first-rate play;
Oh, hear the bells ring, “Ting-a-ling-ling!”
Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day!

Over the river and through the woods,
Trot fast, my dapple gray!
Spring over the ground,
Like a hunting hound!
For this is Thanksgiving Day.

Over the river and through the woods,
And straight through the barnyard gate.
We seem to go extremely slow
It is so hard to wait!

Over the river and through the woods,
Now Grandmother’s cap I spy!
Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

(Traditional children’s song)

I may not be a certified therapy dog, but my presence at the nursing home sure does seem to bring a lot of smiles. Especially from Grammie.

Wonderful Wednesday: Lulu Update

We went back to visit the nice lady Veterinary specialist and she said that I am doing a lot better. She says that I have Inflammatory Bowel Disease* (IBD) of the upper and lower GI tract and Pancreatitis. Mom has been giving me B12 shots once a week for the last 6 weeks (I am not very happy about that) but they are now going to start to be once a month. They are decreasing my prednisone little by little, though I am going to be taking this for a long time. At my checkup appointment, I hid under the chair that Mom was sitting in so that the Dr would not see me (if I can’t see them, they can’t see me – right?).

Going to the Vet makes me scared and excited. I don’t like it very much. Thankfully, if I keep improving, I won’t have to go to often.

This prednisone stuff makes me super hungry. Mom finds me begging and scavenging for food, which I never did before. That was always Sofie and Charles’ deal. I have put back on some weight, which doesn’t bother me, but Mom is afraid the Dr is going to yell. And, I drink water all the time. All 3 dogs bowls and Charles’ little bowl are empty constantly. Mom is feeding me this expensive Royal Canin Hydrolyzed Protein (wet and dry), which the Dr says is the best for me, with an occasional hypoallergic dog treat. So far, it seems to be working.

I guess that is all for now. I am happy to be feeling better. Thank you all for the healing energy.

*Canine Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a condition that results when cells involved in inflammation and immune response infiltrate the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. This makes the wall of the GI tract thick and interferes with the bowels ability to move and absorb food. The World Small Animal Veterinary Association defines IBD as an inflammatory infiltration for which no specific cause can be found. This means they try to stop the inflammation and relieve the problem without ever really knowing why it happens. Approximately 50-70% of affected dogs have good long-term outcomes from initial treatment. IBD is not curable and flare-ups can happen throughout the dog’s life. (This is just for your information. I am not a vet or any kind of doctor. I am just a DogMom.)
