Stay Texas Strong!

Dogtors and deadlines

Yesterday I had my regular checkup with my heart dogtor to see if my arrhythmia is doing okay under the meds. Can you guess how it went?

Yup, Momma and I are both beaming, because everything was pawfect! Not a single blip on the screen. Hooray! We'll keep at this level of meds, and I don't have to get checked again for TWO whole months!

Momma also saw her dogtor yesterday, but she's not as happy about it. She has been having a lot of trouble with her paws and had to go to a pawdiatrist to have them checked out. She has lots of long words wrong with them, but she has lots of exercises and stuff to do to try to make them better. She's not sure at this point if she can run her next marathon, which is in only a month, so that has her really upset. Pigeon worked super hard to comfort her yesterday, and Jessie and I are SUPER helpful and give her kisses while she does her stretches! Hopefully it'll work out.

Finally, please remember that the dead lion is TOMORROW for jumping in our bouncy house at the Blogville Picnic! Email a pic of you jumping or standing to dreagoddess(at)gmail(dot)com if you'd like to pawticipate.

If you wants to jump in one of our bouncy houses at the Blogville Picnic, send us a picture of you jumping or standing at dreagoddess(at)gmail(dot)com. The dead lion is this Friday, September 8th!

11 turned out to be the magic number after all! Say hello to Moana's Islands!

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

LBR is on puppy watch!

Take a look at this sweet girl!

Little Moana was pulled, heavily pregnant, from a shelter just a few days ago. She started having her puppies this morning, and it looks like it's going to be a BIG litter! Cross your paws for an easy delivery and healthy pups! I'll share pictures of them as their foster momma shares them.


11 pups so far!!!

Happy Bow Tie Day!

Now THIS is a howliday that was tailor-made for me!

PeeS: Thank you for those who've checked on us during Hurricane Harvey! We live in the Dallas area, which is a good 4-5 hour drive from Houston. We won't get more here than some extra rain. But thank you for your thoughts, and please extend it to all our furiends further south!

Picnic fun!

Have you heard the news??

That's right, Blogville is having a big picnic and barn dance in September! It's going to be SO much fun! Jessie said she wanted to host an event, so we thought of what went well with picnics. I thought maybe a potato sack race, but Jessie has been watching Buster the Boxer's trampoline commercial from Christmas WAY too many times. She said SHE wants to try that. So.....

BOUNCE HOUSES!!! Jessie and I are going to get a bunch of different pawesome themed bounce houses and set them up around the edge of the picnic. It's going to be SO much fun! They're all special enhanced durable, so ALL pups, kitties, and anyone else is welcome to come us them. No anti-claw policies or weight limits!

So what do you need to do if you want to come jump in the bounce houses? Just send us a picture of you! Preferably jumping, but standing works too. Send it to Momma at dreagoddess(at)gmail(dot)com by Friday, September 8th. (That's two weeks from this Friday!) We'll find the pawfect bounce house for you to jump in.

If you want to host an activity of your own or learn more about all the pawesome stuff that's going to happen at the picnic, just check out the Mayor's official post!

Awesome update

Remember me telling you about my good furiend Mkhitaryan? He arrived at the shelter with a badly abscessed wound, and basically almost didn't make it. But look at him now!!

Mkhitaryan was adopted by a totally pawesome family and has a new fur sister, Lexi. His foster mom described their first meeting as "they played and played and played, then laid down and played some more."

Hooray for happy endings!!

Thanks Chewy!

Thanks to everyone who wrote to Chewy for us! We're happy to report that they wrote to us directly and let us know that they're planning to stock Jessie's camel bags in the future, but for now their parent company Petsmart.com has started carrying them. PHEW! We knew Chewy wouldn't let us down!

 "Thanks, Chewy!"

Monday, August 14, 2017

Chewy, how could you do this to us?

Like most of our blogging buddies, Jessie and I are big fans of Chewy.com for all our food and treat needs! But we discovered something this weekend that makes us very sad.

 This is Jessie getting her camel treatments. She has to get subcutaneous fluid treatments every single day because of her kidney disease. Momma buys the bags of fluid -- called "lactated ringers" -- online. We had been using a company called Pet360. We found out this weekend they were taken over by Chewy. Great, now we can get this necessary product from the website we already love, woohoo!!!

"WHAT??? Really???"

But when we checked Chewy, we found that they STILL don't carry lactated ringers!! It made us SO sad that they would take over another company but then not carry all the things that the other company did! We found another (more expensive) source for lactated ringers, but we're still hoping that Chewy might decide to carry them in the future. We emailed, and they just said they'll add it to their Wish List of future products.

"Please, Mr. Chewy??"

If you use Chewy, please email them at service@chewy.com and request that they start carrying lactated ringers! Maybe that will get it moved up higher on their Wish List. Jessie would really appreciate it!

Heart to heart

Hey folks. Remember I told you a few months back that my big ol' heart is just so full of love that it skips beats sometimes? I've been on medicine to control it, but I had a follow-up test this week and I'm back to skipping some beats again. Now I have to take meds THREE times a day, blech. I'm getting another test in a month to see if it's working or if we need to try some different meds. I'd appreciate some POTP to make sure it works. You know I feel fine, but Mommas get worried, that's all.

It's my adoptiversary!

Hey folks, Jessie here! You know, two years ago today was a pretty impawtant day. Furst, Momma dressed us all up pretty and matching each other and took us to the park.

I acted pretty silly for a while, because there was a funny guy with a flashy beast!

But Casey taught me how to pose like a pawfessional.

And then we took our very furst FAMILY picture.

Yup, two years ago today, my momma signed the adoption papers that made her my MOMMA instead of my FOSTER momma. And I became part of the family fur reals!!!

 We had a pawty to celebrate, with some of my favorite people, like Auntie, and my namesake Auntie Jess, and Casey's Boy.

There was even a cake!

 But best of all was that I was a FUREVER dog.

 It's been a fangtastic two years! And my family is going to make the most of every moment we have together!

You like what you like!

It's always funny to see how different pups can act completely differently sometimes. For example, this was Jessie yesterday.

As soon as Momma came home and opened the dog door, Jessie ran right out and sprawled on the patio to bask in the sun. She does that ALL the time, until her furs are hot to the touch and Momma makes her come in. Meanwhile...

Give me a soft bed and air conditioning ANY time!

Comfy perch

Pigeon has always been a climbing kitty. She loved hanging out on top of the kitchen cabinets, and Momma put two beds up in her favorite perches so she could lounge in comfort. But Momma noticed that Pidge hasn't been up to those spots in ages. She thinks that Pigeon's age is getting to her. Instead, Pigeon is always hanging out on the kitchen table or the window seat next to it. So Momma set up a surprise for her...

That's right, a fancy new bed JUST for her.

"You hear Momma, Jessie. This is MY bed! No puppers allowed."

"Ahhhhhh. Peace and coziness at last!" 

I think she likes it! What do you think?

Silly humans

Momma said something silly last night. We had a storm blow in last night, with lots of thunder and lightning and wind. Storms never bother me, but Jessie gets pretty skeered by them. Well, the storm blew in just as Momma was getting ready to start Jessie's nightly camel treatment. Normally Jessie's really good about those, but with the storm too, it was just too much for her. Every time Momma tried to get the needle in, Jessie flinched away. Finally Momma gave up so she wouldn't traumatize poor Jessie for life, and we all got in bed. Well, Momma and I did. Jessie was still being skeered, so Momma had to coax her to jump up. Then she just sat straight up, still shaking, while Momma petted her. Me, I was snoring in no time. But Momma finally had to pull Jessie down so she'd lie down. Jessie laid there for a second, then stretched her head out over Momma's chest, let out a DEEP sigh, and was snoring in the next breath.

That's when Momma said the silly thing. She petted Jessie's head and said, "I'm so glad you trust me this much." Isn't that silly? I mean, she's our momma. Our human, the one we chose for our very own. Humans were put on this earth to take care of us, and we were put here to love them. So even when there's skeery stuff like a storm or Vacula or that suspicious bunny that I KNOW is the vanguard of a whole bunny army, Momma ALWAYS makes it better. 'Cause that's her job!
