|Happy 100th Birthday Papa Ricca|
It was a very sad week for all of Blogville last week. As most of you know, my dearest love, Amber, lost her brother Rusty. I never got to meet him BUT I know he is with Tucker and they are both happy again playing and running around the bridge together. I have something very important to ask my girl and I wished he could be here to hear it and give me his approval. I will miss ya and be here if my love needs me.
Then we read about Remington's cancer prognosis.
Our decision is to let him spend the rest of his days being as comfortable as possible. He shows no sign of pain at this time. We are going to watch him and love him and give him the best we can until the time comes that God let's us know it's time to say good bye.
I do know my boy....I am sure he will live life to the fullest. This will not keep him from enjoying each and everyday. As we all know....that is how we all should live our life....because nothing is certain. He told me he has many things to do and is very excited about them. He is quite the guy....and that is why I love him so much.
We love you too Remington !!
I was so scared when we found our my dear friend Asta was going to have surgery too. We have faith things will be OK. I'm a cancer survivor you know. There is always hope. This is what we last heard.

BUT there is good news too:
Dobbie is now at the rescue that will care for him until he is adopted. He started his on new journey on Feb 3rd
Dobbie had a BIG day today (so far). I went to pick him up from AldineAnimal Hospital to take him to meet Dawn Timms at Pet Smart. He is such a hyper little guy. He now weighs about 33lbs, but is looking thicker as he is starting to get fat on his bones! He got a bath and a pedicure, and we headed to PetSmart! OMG talk about excited!! He didn't know which way to go when we got to PetSmart today. He was super happy to see people, dogs, everything! He even carried his toy inside with him (which had gotten torn up in the car already). He got 2 new toys and some treats while at PetSmart and he was being very vocal, especially when he saw a little black puppy! We met with Dawn and took some pics, and they are now headed to his next step of his journey with Tiffany Jones and APAC-Temple. He is looking so good, I can't wait to see how well he fills out! OH..and I didn't cry LOL he is too silly hyper to let that happen!
|At my new home.|
Weenie here again..........
OMD, you won't beleive this !!. Yesterday Mommy drug me to the Vet for my yearly physcical and I got to meet Rocky in the flesh. OMD, it was pawsome. Dr Briles said he could bring him to see Mommy if she wanted and of course she said yes.
OMD Mommy said he looked terrific. I don't know because we just sniffed on each other and I'm blind remember. Everything was fine BUT when he tried to climb into her lap and I couldn't let him do that.
Mommy took this picture of his website this morning and in his own words he said.........
"Sweet Sunday morning to everyone! I was just thinking what a wonderful place the world would be if everyone had the stash of weenies that I now have...hope that you are all blessed today with your own wondrous weenie-type of world."
OMD, you thought he was kidding? He has a closet full of Vienna Sausages, his favorite treat. He has been getting care packages from all over the world with all kinds of toys, blankets and treats. He shares too. He and Dr Briles have lunch together sometimes. Dr Briles eats crackers with his but Rocky says it's all about the meat.
Now, Mommy will tell you them best part.
The Mommy here.........
Rocky looks great and seems to be so happy. Dr Briles said Rocky is doing so well that he only has one really bad spot left and he doesn't think he will need skin grafts.
Fantastic news for this sweet boy.
