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!

Happy Father's Day!

Jessie and I don't have a daddy, but we have a fangtastic grandpa!

Jessie especially is completely Grandpa's girl, as you can see. We're out with Momma to visit Grandma and Grandpa this weekend, so we'll just wish all the daddies out there a very happy Father's Day!

Remembering my furiend Bilbo

Jessie and I are so sad to hear that our furiend Bilbo from Da DB Boyz went to join his sister Dory at the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. He has been our furiend for a long time, and Blogville will not be the same without him. :( We sent lots of love to his brothers Artie and Jakey and his loving pawrents so they can get through this hard time.

Tonight, Jessie and I are going to eat pumpkin cookies and have a toast for Bilbo!

Guest star selfie

Momma was supposed to post this yesterday for Sunday Selfies, but she furgot. Good help is SO hard to find! Anyway, this week I decided to let a guest star join us for selfie time.

That's Officer Justice, one of the hard-working horsies in the McKinney Mounted Patrol. Momma ran a 5k on Saturday that was raising money for the mounted patrol, and Officer Justice came out with his human and two other pawlice horsies to snoopervise events.

You can tell he's a real pawfessional at this. Momma said that when she first said hello to him, he started lipping her hand like he thought she had an apple or sugar cubes or something. But as soon as she pulled out her phone and asked if he'd be in her pre-race selfie, he immediately pulled up his head and posed for her.

Thanks fur all your hard work, Officer Justice!

Throwback Thursday: Hanging out at the BAR

We can't believe it's been a whole year since the Blogville Awesome Retreat. We had SO much fun there, roadtripping with our momma and meeting up with good furiends.

Jessie got to see her man Stanley in the furs. It was love at furst sight, of course!

I got to see Stella Rose, one of my very furst blogging buddies.

 No other trip can ever compare to the fun we had at the BAR!

Tongue-Out Tuesday

This is me during one of my camel treatments. I'm a super-duper good girl for them. I sit patiently while Momma sticks me and while the fluids are flowing. Sometimes I'll lick Momma, but otherwise I sit quietly. But then afterwards, Momma brings out a big nummy bone for me to chew on! (And one for Casey to, since he's good and sits quietly during my treatment too.) I can handle a little poke and sitting still for a yummy bone!

It's not great news

Well, Jessie's blood test results are in, but it's not great news. After the great drop in her levels after 2 weeks of daily camel treatments, we had high hopes we'd reach the magic number after another 2 weeks and be able to reduce her camel treatments. (Jessie's a trooper, but she doesn't like them.) Unfortunately, her numbers have actually gone up again. The specialist isn't very sure what to do. He suggested twice daily camel treatments, which Momma is against, and a supplement called Azodyl that he isn't sure works but can't hurt. <sigh> Momma is checking with her LBR friends to see if anyone has suggestions. One said Azodyl didn't help her pup at all, but something called Renal Essentials did.

If anyone has any experience with any renal supplements or other possibilities, Momma would appreciate the advice!

This and that

Well, folks, Momma's Renny-sauce faire had its closing day this weekend, so Momma is DONE with that!

Momma and that interloper Patches. Auntie is the one next to her, in the straw hat 

On the down side, that means we won't be visiting Auntie every weekend. That makes me SUPER sad. BUT on the plus side, it means a lot more of this:

Snuggle time with Momma!! We spent most of yesterday snuggling on the couch together and watching Game of Thrones. I think Jessie, Pigeon, and I are like Daenerys's dragons -- she takes care of us, and we take care of her!

Speaking of taking care of, this morning Jessie went back to the specialist for another blood draw. We're hoping her kidney levels have reached the magic number and we can drop down to 3 days a week of camel treatments instead of every day. Cross your paws! We should have the results by tomorrow.

Settle in, Jessie, I have a story for you.

Really? I loves stories! Is it about a dragon? Or an ogre? Or--

Jessie! Let me tell the story! Okay, once upon a time, there was a beeYOUtiful cowgirl. 

Oh Casey! I love cowgirls! They're so much better than silly princesses.

Listen to the story, Jessie.

Sorry! I'm listening. Look how good I'm listening.

Okay. SO. Once upon a time--

You said that part already!

--There was a beeYOUtiful but annoying cowgirl.

That part sounds a little rude.

And she ended up in a skeery place. She was away from her family and the wonderful life she was SUPPOSED to have. Instead, she was all alone in a cold concrete cage at a place called a SHELTER.

CASEY! Those places are skeery! Does the cowgirl escape?? Does a handsome prince come???

Just listen to the story, Jessie!!

Ow! Sorry, I'll listen, I'll listen!

ANYway, the cowgirl didn't know what would happen to her. But THEN a magic fairy godmother appeared in the shelter. And she said, "Hello, beeYOUtiful cowgirl! I'm from LBR, and I'm here to rescue you!"

CASEY!!!!!! I know this story!!! I know who the cowgirl is!!!

Look, it's ME! I was the cowgirl in the skeery shelter, and the magic LBR godmother came to take me away!! I was so skeered still. I wasn't sure what was going to happen!

That's right, kid, but the LBR godmother took you away, got your vet care, and got you all ready to come meet your foster home. Which was US.

It was wonderful, Casey! And that's why yesterday was my birthday, right? 

Yes. You turned three years old, two years since you left that skeery shelter.

And we lived happily ever after, didn't we, Casey?

Of course we did, Jessie. That's how all good stories end.

....Is she asleep at last?

Dawg, this storytelling is hard work!

 Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESSIE!!! We're so glad to have you in our lives. Here's to our happily ever after!
