Coco here. I went swimming for the very first time this summer. My cuz Bosco was there for moral support. You can't see Kitty, but she was being a total whiney butt, so my Nanna held her while Mom and I ventured out. My natural robot swimming instincts kicked in right away. I wasn't exactly enthusiastic. Ok, building momentum.. I am creating some waves Mom! Mom says next summer I will get a life vest and go to town, but this time I went bare nekked. Loooove my Pops. He is an awesome grandpawrent. Bosco, pose for goodness sakes! All in all, pretty successful. Didn't sink like a rock or anything. I sure am sad to see the summer end.
Furiends, Sophie here. My Mom comes back tomorrow. I wanted to take over the blog today and thank everyone for the comments, well wishes, prayers and power of the paw you have sent me. It does a pup good to know others are there with you. The fact is I do have Lymphoma, and it causes me to move around pretty slowly, tire easily, and have these large scary lumps on my neck especially. There are times when I just have a bad day. BUTT.. I am also still able to bark loudly when the peeps are too slow getting me my food (let's face it, I DEFINITELY still have an appetite), I still follow the peeps all around the house, I still go outside and potty on my own, and I still like to play bitey-hand from time to time. Only the Lord knows how much time we have on earth, but I am choosing to be pawsitive and enjoy pooping, sleeping, playing and eating!! I still have a lot of fight in me peoples and I intend to do battle with this thing.
Coco, you want some of this?? I can take you, you know.. Yeahhhh, but skritchies!
On the upside, the diet ain't bad! Human food is awesome. Kitty and Coco are sooooo jealous of my sweet potatos and yogurt and gluten-free pasta and veggies. Sorry girls! It is allll mine. Kibble schmibble.
Enjoy some pics of me on my comfy throne of sleep.
I have been sleeping on the white pillow at the top of the bed. Coco and Kitty get all the way under the covers. Pretty decent setup.
Pee S.. My food, meds and doctor's appointments are pretty expensive. It would be great if you could help my mom out and donate some monies if you can, on the Chip-In gadget. Even a dollar would be helpful as she will soon have a human newborn to take care of as well. Thanks guys!!!
It's Sophie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! See, her mom had been planning a huge family vacay for a while, and had asked if she could hang with us for the week. Then this past Friday morning she had a scare with her lymphoma and we thought she might not get to come. BUTT..she made a quick recovery (long story, but her steroid medication went nuts, and caused her to get sick. Thank the Lord they were able to correct it and she was back to her hungry and snorty self by Sunday). Here she is!
So when is dinner around here?? The frowny face pug club is now in session. I pawromise I like her, you just can't tell. Sniff sniff snortle. How about some TV Sophie? I could go for some Vampire Diaries. Stephan is such a hottie.. I can't stop watching.
So far so good. Sophie has an extremely special diet and medication schedule to treat her lymphoma and accommodate her liver issues. She gets alkaline water to drink, and steamed broccoli, carrots, sweet potatoes, gluten free pasta, brown rice, and boiled egg in various combinations. For snacks, she can have some plain organic yogurt or an apple. I am sorta jealous of her diet..kibble stinks!
Furiends, please send the Power of the Paw and major prayers to our pal Sophie and her family. Just got a call that she has taken a turn for the worst, and it doesn't look good. Her momma is having to make some very difficult decisions right now. -If you missed the post about Sophie, check out the Aug. 31, 2011 post.
****UPDATE: Got a call saying that Sophie has been doing a little better the past few hours and has been able to eat. Keep those pawrayers coming!
A stand off... HAAAAAIIIILLLLP! The Boston has clamped onto my tail! Coco: I bitey your ear...Payback Son! Kitty: EWWWWW, don't be giving me cousin sugars! Taking a breather. Two butts in a pod. Though we play hard, we are best furiends. We's never actually aggressive so don't anyone worry. We stick to each other like glue. Boy oh boy do these girls have spunk!
Part II - On the Bed Rarrrrrgggh. Hey Mr., put that thing away! This is an all girl pup house, you know. I bet my mouf is bigger than yours.. Mom, can he stay another night?? I like this guy. I'm worn slap out. MUST-TAKE-NAP. Well folks, I think we all learned a valuable lesson here. Kitty and Coco=1, Bosco=0. Never argue with women. They will put you in your place. I'm the biggest, but absolute last in the pack order. Hhhhhmmpppf.
Brodie: YEEEAAAAHHHHH...I'm the man. Two fine ladies are in my shaggin' wagon. Coco: I'm smiling my goofy smile. You can all thank me for my sacrifice when we get ice cream. Kitty: I have surface issues..Get me out of this red contraption and stay on your side Mr.!OK. 1-2-3...Let's blow this joint! Helllo there. Why are yous laying down? I'm very friendly don't worry. Really Penelope, we met last week and it was all good. You smell really nice though. She is a funny Frenchie. We have seen her a few times and she lays down immediately. Her mom says this is just her habit. When we leave she follows us and wants to hang out more...on the ground. Isn't she cute? We like her and she looks like a pug.
Hope everyone has a good week! We got rained out in Alabama this holiday weekend but we still made the best of it and hung out with cousin Bosco.
*******Sophie Update: Miss Thing starts her chemo treatments by IV this week. Her mum says it is only for 10 minutes, once a week to start. Her new diet has already started as well. It is holistic, and she gets tons of veggies, supplements, alkaline water, and even sugar free pasta noodles. I will get the full run-down on the diet and post about that later. Please pray her first treatment goes ok. If you missed Sophie's story, please check out the 8/31/2011 post for details. She is a strong pup that needs our help!
My name is Kitty, but I am not a cat! I am a very sensitive boston terror who loves nothing more than to play with my red roley ball, play bitey-face with my sister, and sleep all the way under the covers.
Hello. Coco here also. I am a young snuggle pug (ok, possibly co-dependent) with a smiley face and attitude to match. I will snark food from your plate with no shame and bite the tender part of my sister's hind leg when she least expects it.
