My Baby Buster


Tribute to my Baby Buster.  This Xmas will be 2 years since he passed away.  I miss him more than I can say.  I cried when he died and I cry still.  He left us too soon.  I know I’ll see him in heaven for there is no place called Paradise without my loving little boy Buster.   Here he is on Papa’s lap. “Sir” is what he called him.  Because he was a little gentleman.  T took care of him for two years, never complaining once about giving him his pills twice a day, paying for expensive medicine, taking him to the vet, holding him until the seizures stopped, cleaning up after him so lovingly as any Papa would.  T had faith that Bussie would recover from Valley Fever- but life had other plans. Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives.

Keeping pets safe


Keep Your Pets Safe!     This year, March 15-21 has been set aside to commemorate National Poison Prevention Week. Once again, it is time to highlight this annual event. While this is an excellent time to set aside to evaluate your home’s safety to protect you and your family, it is also the purrfect time to secure any poisonous items in your home so your pets are also out of danger. The ASPCA has provided some excellent information to remind pet owners about the common items in and around our homes which are highly toxic to our beloved fur friends. If you suspect that your pet has ingested any of these substances, call your vet immediately, or call the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center’s 24-hour hotline at (888) 426-4435. Common Painkillers and Anti-inflammatory Human Medications: Aspirin, ibuprofen or naproxen and other NSAIDS are among the top ten toxic drugs that are in most of our medicine chests. Highly toxic to small animals, they can cause stomach and intestinal ulcers and can cause kidney damage …

Buster update


Baby Buster is having some sort of twitching problems.  I think it is petit mal seizures but the vet thinks it is a pulled muscle or even a slipped disc.  He’s been on bedrest for a few days and isn’t getting any better.  He had 6 episodes today.  Tim was able to get it on video today so tomorrow we are going to take the video in to the vet.  Poor little guy.  We are very concerned.  He’s been by our side 24-7 since this twitching started.  He’s already on antiseizure medication due to a couple of life-threatening seizures he had.  (During one his temperature got up to 108 degrees).  He has Valley Fever which is a fungal infection in his brain so is also on antifungal medication.  The vet said most dogs recover 100% but there are a few who don’t make it through the treatment.  He has the best personality and has been with us for 8 years so far.  We are hoping for many more to come.  The pics of me and Buster were …

I found my haircut


I found a great pic I am going to take in to the salon for my next haircut.  It will be great for summer.  Great for straight hair like mine.  I am also going back to my natural dark brown color.    I found this pic here:  http://www.elle.fr/elle  (The French Elle magazine online- check it out.  You can have it translated into English)   T2 with his BD cake last night.  It was Cold Stone cake and ice cream.  Sweet cream ice cream with cookie dough pieces and extra cake batter ice cream on the side.  Because you can never have enough cold stone ice cream on your birthday!  Pics T2 and I took of Buster yesterday.  That tongue is so cute!  Look at his hair on top.  heehee Update on Buster:  He has Valley Fever in his brain.  We found out when he had some life threatening seizures back in November.  We almost lost him!  He has to be on antifungal medication for a year.  (He takes it twice a day and knows when it …

Something’s Happening….


My hits went from 60 to 260 in less than 24 hours.  I do have followers but they are just invisible!  They are coming by the hundreds now…soon it will be thousands!  I am on FIRE!  :)  Happy Friday to you!  Do you have any weekend plans?  T is off today so we will be hanging out together.  He took the dogs for a run early this morning.  This is how they look after a run:  I think his tongue is too big for his mouth.  What do you think?  One more of the tongue- just because…   And this is how they look the rest of the morning:  I’m having a headache and sore jaw and teeth this morning.  My teeth were bothering me after the dentist yesterday and I was grinding last night.  I sometimes where a mouth guard for the grinding but they still hurt even with the guard.  Anyone else a grinder?  What do you do to prevent it, if anything?  My DH, T, said I was grinding loudly and with a …

My dogs are cute


All his spots are showing because he just got groomed.  This boy loooooooves a bath and gets excited when he sees a comb or the clippers.  You could groom him all day long and put him in any position and he’ll just stay there.  His nickname is “Sir.”  I don’t know why T came up with that one.  But he is also known as Buster, Bus or Bussie.  Sometimes “Mr. McCuteface” or whatever other thing pops into our head.  My nickname for him is “Sweetheart” as in “Whose my sweetheart?”    On the other hand…..this little girl will run to her cage if she sees a brush.  She LIKES it once we groom her but is a little leary at first.  This is Francine Laure.  Otherwise known as Francie or Francie Pants (originated from Fancy Pants).  My nickname for her is Baby Girl. No,  she cannot keep a bow in her hair.  Had to get rid of all of the bows because this tomboy is having nothing to do with them!  She doesn’t even appreciate …
