My night at the emergency vet...

Wow is it good to be home after a night like last night. Let me recap the day/night... We went to bed close to
Midnight Saturday and mommy woke up to the noise of my tummy at 8am Sunday. She thought I was hungry so she tried to feed me breakfast and I wouldn't eat... I know! I wouldn't eat! Mommy got in the car, went to the store and bought canned pumpkin. I ate 4 spoonfuls and that was it. Around 11 Dr B called mommy back and told her to try some of Mu's tummy pain meds... Didn't help. The day went on... I tried throwing up a bunch and nothing much was happening... Tried some number twos .... Nothing! Mommy talked to Dr B around 8 and she said mommy might want to take me to the emergency vet. We got there and they were so darn nice to me. They weighed me and I am down to 63 pounds because mom and dad have the kitchen on lock! My blood work came back fabulous but my X-ray showed something weird. They thought it was an animal skull... Mom saw it and thought it was a squeaker ... Mom was close! They wanted me to go to Lynchburg Emergency Vet right away and have a endoscopy done since they don't have one here. We headed that way at 10pm and got there at 11:30pm. They were super busy and didn't get to me until around 12:15. They finally took me back at 1:00am. Mom was sitting in her car waiting when her phone rang at 3am asking her to come inside the building. The vet tech took her to the back and there I was laying on the table with a camera down my throat and my tummy on the tv... Mom almost hurled. She had to sit down- amateur ! They told her they has been going for two hours and the pieces were too big and they would have to do surgery. We didn't do surgery in Roanoke because they didn't want to cut me open since I have chemo coming up... But it had to be done. I went straight into surgery at 3:00am and was out by 3:45am. Mom got to leave with me and head to Big Lick Animal clinic at 7:30am. We got there at 9:30am and they kept me with an IV and morphine until 4:30 today and then I got to finally come home! I am doing good- just groggy! My appetite is back but I'm only allowed 1 tablespoon of wet food every 2 hours to 4 hours for 48 hours since they cut my tummy and intestines open. Once I am healed in about two weeks, I will begin chemo! Thank you for all the well wishes!!!! Pibble kisses and love!

Happy New Year!

"Whole"y wheat bread....Mommy has been off for like forever and daddy is off this week, too, and WOW do I have a lot to catch everyone up on. Let's see....about two weeks Mommy cleaned out the guinea pig cage, but hadn't taken the bag out to the trash yet. She kept hearing something and hearing something and guess was ME and guess what I was going....EATING GUINEA PIG POOP! Mommy freaked and called Dr. B who said I would be fine and think of it as extra fiber. May not be your cup-of-tea, but it was YUMMY! Dr. B came and said everything still looked good- some increase, but good. She will be back in two more weeks to check me out. On Christmas Eve, Mommy took foster puppy Maggie out to potty so I took the opportunity to sneak into the kitchen and eat 5 cookies...not just any cookies...of course, they were made with Baker's chocolate. So....daddy had to stay home with me on Christmas Eve while mommy went to Christmas stuff with the family. Long story short, I was fine- thank goodness, because I sure didn't want to throw that delicousness up....Ok, so I've told you about the poop, told you about the cookies....oh yes....last weekend my brothers got in a fight over food. Mommy always feeds them separate because Andy is REALLY into his food. She thought Mu was done so she let Andy out of the kitchen, Mu got upset, Andy got upset while Mom was pulling them apart, I - always the opportunist- ate the food :) I know you all didn't see that one coming. Ms. Gina came over the other night and brought me, well "us", a LOT of toys. Mommy says I have officially become a hoarder and I must share- whatever! I got a bath a today. I LOVE baths. They make me feel so spunky, but then I wandered into the bathroom later when daddy was painting and got paint on my beautiful fur. Go figure...but you can't stay clean forever! Happy New Year!!!!

Hello everyone!!

Wow it was been a long time! Mommy said to tell you she is very sorry and she will try to be better... Without thumbs I'm kind of relying on her... Yeash! Well, so far no news is good news... The cancer hasn't really progressed but Dr B is coming back on the 19th to do a check up. Since the last time I wrote, mom has filled our stockings. It sure is hard not to pull them down and play with everything inside.... But then we will get coal and what the heck am I going to do with coal?! People have still been sending me donations for my chemo .... We can't tell you how much we appreciate it! Thank you from the bottom of my pitty heart for helping me try to beat this ole cancer. My Facebook Rhett passed Way this week from cancer. Mom would check his page every day and still does! I'm going to try to fight really hard like Rhett! But in the meantime I'm going to enjoy Christmas! It's right around the corner! Mommy is going to be off for two whole weeks! Her and daddy have been talking about trying to take us somewhere... Hope that works out because I love to ride in the car! Well I'm off to bed on this cold night but here are some recent photos... Enjoy!

Hello everyone!

Mommy has been having some "technical issues" with my blog. Everytime she would help me write something and try to publish it, it would disappear. I wonder where it went? Maybe some nice doggy in China is reading my posts?! BOL. Anyway, things have been pretty quite around here lately, which is a good thing. Let's see.....ah yes, two weeks ago Mommy dressed me and my two bros up, loaded us in the car with Daddy and we went and took "family photos". I saw some of the sample pictures and I have to say, I look the best. Mom and Dad always tell me what a pretty pitty I am and boy do I believe them! I got to wear my tu-tu and bow personally made for ME by Mrs Gina! You guys should visit her etsy store: GBDEE. It's a really great store! Then, last weekend we had Thanksgiving....seriously my favorite holiday. Not because of all the food, but because I am thankful....well...thankful for all the food BOL. I protected mommy's pies like a hawk. She didn't trust me alone though so I never got a taste in. Whatever that is all about. Saturday was my first day off of my pain pills since this weirdo growth on my paw and I'm pleased to announced that I haven't limped not one time! It's still there, but we think it's getting better. OH and the biggest news that you all have missed...we have a temporary house guest....a new foster puppy is here until Christmas-ish time when she gets to go to her forever home. Her mommy is trying to surprise her new human brother and sister for Christmas so she is staying here until then. THey come visit a lot be the kids have no idea that she will be there's.....they just think they are coming to help by playing with her BOL! Boy, will the be surprised. Alls I have to say is she better be out of here by Christmas because I get jealous when Daddy holds her. There is only room for one diva in this house and I'm a total daddy lover. I think that catches everyone up on what I've been up to. My next doctor's appointment is December 19th. P.S. Mommy wanted me to share that we have saved and raised a quarter of the costs for my cancer treatments WOOHOO! We are off to a great start! Thanks again to everyone who is thinking about me and praying for me!

I haven totally hurt my paw. It looks pretty darn bad. Dr B put me on a pill and mommy has to soak my pall in Epsom salt. I like it because I like to lick the water when it spills! Mommy fusses but whatever. Send some good vibes my way so this darn thing heals up!

Hello friends!

Hello everyone! It sure has been a looooong time since I've been on. I tell mommy to get on and type since I don't have thumbs but she is always going here and there and everywhere.... Maybe I need to get me an iPad with big letters that my big ole paws will fit on! Anywho I've been up to a lot lately. Some of my bestest friends In the whole wide world threw my a fundraiser to help pay for my chemo! It made me super special knowing everyone cares about me so much! Dr B is supposed to come Wednesday and do another check up. If we have to start chemo before the summer then mommy said Mrs Shelli Conner is gonna watch me. She said she is a total dog lady and ill like het. And she lives near mommy's work so she can be there in a hop, skip and jump.... Whatever that means... Sounds like a lot of work! Anyway- guess what I did to mommy last night...just guess... Well I acted like I didn't feel good and fell asleep on the couch upstairs (I never do that). So mommy went and got a blanket and pillow and went to bed on the couch and guess what happened when she woke up... I was gone... I went to the bed and slept with dad! Hahahaha joke's on mom! Silly mommy! Now let me ask everyone a big favor... Please keep my BFF Ms Gina in your thoughts cause she has been sick and she needs to get Better soon so Parker can play. I would go play with Parker but we don't see snout to snout or tail to tail.... Now I'm off to continue begging for mom's trail mix!
