Seymour Would Love a Home for Christmas ...

Seymour had a home waiting for him since he came to me, they have since changed their minds. Which I understand. They realized they need a Shar Pei that will keep up with their current Pei energy wise, and Seymour isn't that. Seymour just likes to hang out, laze around, consume the least amount of energy possible.

So that means Seymour is still looking for his forever home! Please share him with everyone you know, maybe somewhere he can find someone to love him for who he is.

Happy Birthday Chloe!

Today is Chloe's 3rd birthday! She was feeling well enough to eat a special meal, but I didn't take chances on making her a cake ... either she wouldn't eat it or where her tummy isn't full of food like it usually is, the cake would probably give her the runs.

So she got lots of extra lovings today, and a special meal :)

Here are some pictures from the past 3 years ... there were many ups and many downs in the past 3 years throughout my life, but Chloe, you were always there for me. You were either licking away my tears of sadness, or jumping with joy with me during the happy times.
I hope we have many many more ups and downs (preferably more ups)!
Love you Chloe doll <3

Only a couple days old .. one of those pups is her!

 Always take time to smell the flowers

 You always know how to relax!

 But you also know how to have a good time!

 You make sure to make lots of friends where ever you go ...

 My bundle of wrinkles <3

 You always know how to make my heart melt

 You always know how to make me laugh when I am down

 You're not shy about trying new things ...

 You always know how to pose for the camera

 You're the best big sister anyone could ask for! (right Rinaldo and Pickles!?)

 I know you'll always be there with me during hard times

 You might not be gigantic like our wolfie friends but you have a huge heart! (as do they!)

Lots of news to share ..

Lots of news to share!

Here are some pictures from today of my crew with Nova, an american bulldog. We are dogsitting Nova over the Christmas holidays! Rinaldo is SO excited! They had a blast playing today.

Today I was in Middleton getting a recall on my car fixed and happened to stop into the used bookstore there and found a bunch of older dog magazine (some going back to the 60's!), and happened to find one from 2007 with Chloe's mom in it! I was flipping through them all to find anything Shar Pei related and found this:

She was such a beautiful dog (she has since passed away). She reminds me a lot of Chloe. And speaking of Chloe ... she isn't doing so well either. No appetite, elevated values in her blood work, urine came back not very concentrated so looks like it is her kidneys. We have to finish her meds, recheck blood & urine, and see where we go from there. Right now it is very frustrating though trying to get her to eat. We are adding all her favorites and she will either eat a few bites, not eat anything, or pick out the chicken/rice/treats/sardines etc. In the last 10 days she has lost 2 lbs. She has had this picky appetite since almost a month ago. It sucks, and I really hope she feels better soon. She had to go in and get fluids under her skin and injections a couple weeks ago to help her out. 

 Now onto Seymour, he is FINALLY neutered! YAY! No more balls. He will have a recheck very soon, then be ready for his furever home which has been patiently waiting for him! The vet did find a button tumour on him though. I was told it isn't a bad thing, can come when his immune system is compromised, and will go away on its own. Here's what it looks like, looks similar to a pimple type thing.

And I just had to share this picture. While Seymour was home mending from neutering, and Chloe was home trying to regain energy, I took my boys out for a romp in a field. They had a blast and got to spend some quality time together. I snapped this great picture of them ... aren't they cute!

We also wanted to let everyone know that the Greenwood Animal Hospital is having pet pictures with the grinch! Saturday December 4th 3-5 I believe is the time. Pictures are $10 and all proceeds go to CAPS! They are also giving tours of the clinic, and free snacks/refreshments. It should be a fun time! Now I just have to decide which dog to bring!
