"Flowers are like human beings....they thrive on a little kindness." -- Fred Streeter

Hi dearest friends,

You all know the Mommy is bonkers about flowers. She even likes weeds, so Mommy wants to share a presentation she found. It is super nice and has lots of information about the the USA. Click on the link below and enjoy.
As you must know by now we are now volunteering for All Texas Dachshund Rescue but our hearts are still with the dogs of DROH, after all I was rescued by them, as was all my brothers. But things change sometimes. We will be supporting all the Dachshund Rescue Groups in Texas, including DROH, and soon you will see their logos on my side bar. 

I just wanted to give you guys an update on the big bucks ATDR made at the Reliant Dog Show to help care for  the previous doggies in our care.

$3600.00 green papers.
A record for ATDR.

My Aunt Judy & Diana, we all came over from DROH at the same time, raised $2000.00 in donations just from their harnesses. I don't know how much my kisses raised but I just know I was exhausted after kissing for 5 hours, non stop.

Remember I asked you guys what dress or harness, I should wear to the dog show? Well I picked the one that was the popular favorite. It's not very clear, but it shows the detail of my dress and cap. I was gonna wear my yellow harness, which is the Mommy's favorite, on Sunday but that old Aurthur-RI-Tis meanie came calling. Holly cat crap!! as Frankie Furter would say and God only knows what Puddles would say!
The Mommy picked the picture below as her favorite picture she took of me. I'm staring intently at something on the floor. She said it was probably some dude I kissed, that fell out because I am such a good kisser....heehaw.
Mommy has been so busy, handling Shelby's Vet Fund, sending thank you e-mails and answering so many e-mails from so many kind peoples, that we haven't been able to do much visiting and commenting on blogs. Please excuse us but Shelby is the center of our lives right as she should be. 

The Mommy here............This morning Mona finished taking the last pill of 4 she was to take every day for 4 days. The others are to be given as needed. It's called Rimadyl. I'm to watch her carefully. If she starts tucking her tail between her legs, limps or whines when I touch her tail, she get a pill. She appears to be OK, but doesn't jump up and down from the furniture as she usually does. I will be shopping for some doggie steps or ramps this weekend. This morning as we were getting out of bed she tried to jump down like always put couldn't . I think that's when it hit be that my baby really does have this debilitating thing just like I do. I would do anything to take the pain away from my girl.

I'm back but I gotta go now. The Mommy is crying all of a sudden for some reason.

Love, kissis and {{{huggies}}}

Well...uh da Puddles can't say stuffs like dat on da Mona's loggie...hehehee! You look gorgeous in you outfit too.
My VET's own doggie is on Rimadyl as well as gazillion other doggies and they all seem to sat it bes working da wonders fur them.
Mum bought Brudder Albert some stairs after his back surgery and it was a waste of money...he wouldn't use them things fur nuttin. Mum thinks cuz da steps were NOT fully carpetted, just had carpet on half da step. So make sures mommy buys you some really good steps.


Lola and also Franklin, too said...

I hope Mona is feeling up to jumping around very soon. Maybe the meds will do the trick. Congratulations on all the green papers. You did great and I bet Mona's (and Mommy's) kisses were a big factor.

lotsa licks, Lola

What a pawesome job you all did - congrats!!!

Mona, no more jumping up or down. Take it easy and take care of yourself. Maybe the vet can give Mommy something else to try for your pain.

Oh, Mona! Mommies get worried about us. Make sure you give her lots of snuggles. Phoenix has steps that turn into a ramp but she prefers these foam steps she has. They're very soft. I might have a linky if you'd like to check them out. And the medicine will help. Do you take any supplements like Dasuquin? That helps Cali.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Mona!
I am sure you made a big contribution to all those papers with your kisses!
Good job and congratulations!
I hope the med worked well for you and you are feeling better.
Since I came to live with my mom, she knew that I should not jump up and down from furniture so she looked for some steps. And of course she could not find anything here. She put her mind and hands to work and now I have 4 of them.
I am sure your Mommy will find the perfect ones for you!
Take care
Kisses and hugs
