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!"

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!

Abandoned and neglected!

I think I feel faint... Momma is packing all our things so we can go to Grandma and Grandpa's house. That's good, right? Except she's LEAVING us there and going to a conference thingy for work. She just got BACK from going away! How can she do this to us again?!?!

So we may be a little quiet for a few days, until (and unless!) Momma comes back for us. Sniff. Sob. Send treats, I may lose the will to eat!

Momma wanted to share this today, so I'm generously letting her.

This is her countdown for her next marathon. She's running Chicago in October. She said that WE say 87 like it's a huuuuuge number, but it seems just around the corner to her. BOL!

This means WAR!

Yup, puppers and kitkats, this is nothing short of all-out warfare. Do you know what happened to us last night?? All three of us? We got BAFFS!!! LONG baffs, with three or fours sudsing! And then brushing and spraying and Momma sweeping and spraying and vacuuming all over the house. Because we're a WAR with a horrible enemy -- FLEAS!!!! Momma is SO upset, because none of us have EVER had fleas before. But we're armed to the teeth, and we're going to take back our house!!!

PeeS: Send rations!

Sorry we were out....

Momma had a whole post to explain it and wish you a Happy Independence Day, but she furgot to set it before she left. Siiiiiiigh. So furst....

Happy Independence Day!!

So we were out fur a few days because Momma went on a trip with Grandma and Grandpa and Uncle Adam. She said they had a lot of fun. In the meantime, Jessie, Pigeon and I got to hang out with My Boy! He came to stay at our house, which was very nice of him but honestly...I missed my momma.

"When is she coming back, Boy?" 

Jessie didn't mind so much. She spent a lot of time hanging out with Pigeon.

 Pigeon did a little boxing.

And Jessie and I did a little quality napping.

It was grreat having My Boy visit, but in my old age, I'm finding there's really NO ONE like my momma.

Always something surprising

I hope everyone had a fangtastic weekend! We spent LOTS of time snuggling with Momma, which always makes for a grreat time. But we did have something kinda weird happen. When Momma was out for her run, well...

Yup, the bed cover exploded! Can you believes that? It's a miracle no one was hurt.

Oh, and look how mucMkhitaryan is improving! We're so glad to see he's feeling better. That nasty abscess will be gone in no time!

I hurt looking at him!

Yesterday some pawesome LBR volunteers pulled together to save LBR foster Mkhitaryan. (Pronounced "Mick - Hit - Arian". He's named after a Manchester United player.) Brace yourselves for these pics, they're NOT fun.

Here's poor Mkhitaryan in the shelter.

Not so bad? Turn his head a little...

 He apparently was attacked at some point, and by the time he turned up at the shelter, it had gotten infected and abscessed! He was very close to death when he came to the shelter, so LBR had to spring into action right away!

 Our vet lanced and drained the wound, and he's already looking MUCH better.

Send Mick some prayers and Power of the Paw, please! He still has a long road to go to get better!

Happy International Box Day!

Being boxers, Jessie and I are natural ambassadors for this impawtant howliday -- International Box Day!

Edit: Pigeon made Momma laugh. Momma left the Chewy box out after our photoshoot. When she came back into the room, Pigeon was letting her know that SHE wanted to be included too. BOL!

Also, we would like to bow our heads and remember our sweet angel brother, Scribbles. He passed away two years ago today, but we still think of him often!
