Christmas

Oh we had the most wonderful, fantastical, magical Christmas of all!!!

Mommy's home yeah...  Mommy put one of those blow up beds on the floor in the living room and we cuddled and watched old (and new) Christmas movies all day.  Mommy leaked at some of the old ones (It's a wonderful life!!) but it was a perfect day really. 

We had some most yummy foodables and we even went on a little walkies.

All and all we like this Christmas stuff.  Hey can Christmas be like every day?  Oh boy that'd be GREAT.  Does anybody have Santa's number or email?

(from mommy:  I've been trying to load pictures but Blogger is fighting me this morning)

Wacko on Wednesday and a Question

Meja came in from her last potty break last night, went to bed then got up about a half hour later and was holding up one of her back legs like it was broken.  I thought 'wtf she's not old like me, she can't get injured in bed!!!'  Now you must know that SharPei are very stoic dogs (Meja once had two stitches put back in her eyelids without anesthetic!) so it would take a lot for her to indicate pain.  So I felt every bit of the leg, hip, butt, everything (I was pretty aggressive too because of this martyr thing with these guys) and no ouchie, no flinch, no nothin.  So I gave her a glucosamine and put her back to bed.

This morning she was fine!  The only thing I could think was perhaps she'd gotten the pad of her foot cold and was just being a pussy!  So my question to you dear internets is this:

Has anyone heard of spraying pups feet with Pam (not me the spray!) before they go out in the snow to prevent the snow from getting into the crevices and whatnot?  Any thoughts if this could be harmful?


Ok now on to Wacko Wednesday

Bobo is a known sniff and charge felon.  He loves smells.  Hair stuff, body lotion, perfume, cologne, anything really.  If you've got it on and you're in proximity to him he'll bowl you over and rub you to death.  It's charming really unless we've never met you and you just happen to be visiting with another friend and we run out of chairs and you have to sit on the floor -- but I digress.

My scent has heretofore been immune to him.  Until the other day.  I'd changed deoderants and  OH.MY.GOD.  I sat down on the floor with him and you'd have thought he'd died and gone straight to heaven.  I couldn't get to my camera but could reach my phone.  This pic does not do the mayhem justice.  (he had actually knocked me over with his head butt/rub raw maneuver)


Wha??? I didn't do nuffin


And just because she's cute!

We were awarded Again!!



Dennis the Visla Dog gave us this Very Nice award.  But frankly Bobo's head is too big as it is so he doesn't need any more awards.  So we are going to call this the Meja Award (she only has a rather large bottom but tiny head.)

The rools say we are supposed to give this to 15 bloggy buddies but everyone we know has already gotten it.  So we are gonna say you all havae the Best Blog and if you've not been given this award go ahead and take it.  We learned to share yesterday!

Bobo update

Went in and got the stitches out today.  Bobo was not.a.fan!!!  It seems this vet had tied the stitches a bit too tight and she had to use forceps and scissors to get most of them out. And it was owie to him.

You see he was asleep when she put them in but not so much when she took them out.  And she wanted him on the table so I had to wrangle him as still as I could so she could work.  Our vet in Florida always worked with the dogs on the floor and that's what I asked her to do.  She said he'd be more relaxed on the table.  I said I don't fink so.  But I let her talk me into it and my baby was just shaking. He came home exhausted and I came home pissed at myself for going along!

WE WILL BE LOOKING FOR A NEW VET!!!

Bobo's boo boos and miscellaneous Meja

Conehead (if you bigify you can see the boo boo on his left shoulder. The boo boo he didn't have when we got TO the vet!)
Meja (1st Playdog pose)


Right (armpit?) Original boo boo              Meja kicking Bobo when he's down!


Meja (2nd Playdog pose)


Another shot of the shouldn't be there wound.
Kinda graphic shot of the OW (original wound)


All in all Bobo is doing good.  He looks like he's been to war but feels ok.  He's not fond of the giant pills morning and night but I put a little Kong stuffing on them and it's all good.

Oh but what???

Don't hate me because I'm beautiful...
Don't hate me because I forgot my good camera and only had my iPhoney

Mommy goes bye-bye

And leaves the puppies behind...

I went to Colorado over the weekend to see 'the boy.'  Great trip but three days is just too short.  Now I want to move back to Colorado.  I mean I really want to move back.  To such an extent that I found a place to rent!  Now I just have to encourage them that they NEED dogs in their lives!  I mean come on how could you not???

Bobo is healing nicely.  Flower stayed here with the pups and I believe let Bobo have the conehead off most of the time.  When I got home last night at midnight the first thing I did was put the cone back on and he's like 'WTF mommy I've not had this thing on in three days!!!'  But he was lickin the wound so Bad Mommy had to take charge.

I'll post pics of Colorado later today.  Big snowstorm yesterday and it was beeyooteeful...

Bobo and the boo boo(s) now coming in plurals

The vet thought she'd be done 1 ish and they would call me as soon as Bobo was awake and around. One o'clock came and went no call. At 1:30 I called them. 'She's still in there with him we'll call YOU.' As in don't call us we'll call you.

Two thirty no call, I called again because I am nothing if not persistent. 'She's still in there with him we'll call YOU. And I think in a trying to warn me way said 'there was another tear on his side it's taking longer.' THERE WAS NO TEAR ON HIS SIDE WHEN I BROUGHT HIM THERE!!!

Three thirty no call, I called. 'Dr will call you in half hour.' Me now frantic practically screaming 'IS HE OK?' 'Dr will call you' Fuck now I'm on my way out the door.

Long story short. Bobo has paper thin skin. Meja has been able to tear it on occasion just playing. BUT he had ONE tear on his leg when I brought him there. And now there's a three inch tear on his side. Vet said she had no idea how it could have happened accept if he brushed the kennel door (could happen). She agrees that he didn't come in with it. They also nicked the fuck out of him with the razor. So he's got about 45 stitches all told.

Poor baby is soooo out of it. He's such a gentle lamb he doesn't know what he did wrong to deserve this. I shall sleep with him in my arms tonight and assure him he did nothing. This to shall pass. 
BUT... he's gotta wear a cone and you know from a couple stories ago how he fares with that. Stay tuned... (I was going to post pictures but they're a bit too graphic.

Also Meja is pissed because Bobo came home and straightaway wanted to get up on the couch. So I helped him but he stretched out lengthwise and there's no room for her! The indignity, having to lay on the carpet on the FLOOR!!!

Bobo's boo boo

Bobo got into something last night and has a nasty gash on his right front leg.  As soon as the vet opens at 9:00 we'll be there. 

He has very thin skin that rips way to easily so he probably got into a briar patch or something.  I thought I could super glue (not really super glue but liquid bandage) it but it's too ragged and deep.  He keeps pulling at the bandage I've got on it so I've got him right next to me on the couch.  He keeps looking up at me like 'what'd I do mommy?'  All sad face.

Lordy lordy what's going on with all the babies and their owies and hurts?

Anonymous posts

My Friends, I'm a virgin here in blog land.  But I just got a comment from a post I did in Feb 2009 for viagra.  Bobo is fixed and I'm really not interested.  Where do the mother effers come from and how do you stop them?

I KNOW my blog is popular I mean I have 1 1/2 followers so WTF?

Do I have to put one those 'what's the characters so the bots don't know' on?

Help please.  It's only one but still disconcerting.

Bobo is a Conehead

After reading about Mango's adventure with his brother Dexter, who has to wear a cone because he just got 'tutored,' I remembered a hilarious story about Bobo and 'The Cone.'

He and Meja both got their eyes done at the same time (SharPei are very vain and get cosmetic surgery at a very young age.) They had to have cones of course and Bobo, who is afraid of his shadow and frankly not the sharpest knife in the drawer, would hit the wall and just stand there. With the big end of the cone against the wall. I would have to gently move him away from the wall. I'm convinced he'd still be there if I hadn't moved him!

Well we humans thought this was the funniest thing ever. And truth be told it really was. But in the interest of preserving the big guy's self esteem I had to make us them stop laughing.  But come on! how could you not?

Meja on the other hand was like a stealth rabbit.  Bobbing and weaving whilst running about.  She had things to do, people to irritate.

It's really a joy watching these two and it's amazing the different personalities they have.  You'd think being brother and sister they'd have some similarities. Not.

One thing is clear though, they've a love I've never seen between two animals. There's a bond there that's really indescribable (you know my fears about this.)  But I shall not speak it's name! 

Good and bad could be said of this.  Because they are never more than 10 feet from each other if they decide to chase Guineas at middle of the night o lordy, if I get one to come back I get two. On the other hand if I don't get one I don't get any.

My loves, ohhhhh My loves...

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee!

That aptly describes Meja.

As I was thinking this Meja jumped on the couch. She is all but undetected. Weighing in at 37# she is able to slooth herself onto the couch with the swiftest of feets.

She is also able to bitey her brothers head in a fight causing her momma to wonder if we should go get stitches ( no bother I superglued him, and not for the first time!)

Bobo on the other hand ANNOUNCES when he's in the room! All 70#'s of him. He's just a great big ole fun bag of doofus. And we loves him so.

Bad photos from my iPhone

My niece took my USB cord so can't upload pics from my camera. So here's some really really great pics from my phone.

Bobo doesn't NEED the top of his head. Meja doesn't NEED the front part of her body.


The beautiful Meja practicing advance doga (please to don't try this at home)


These are the damn guinea birds that lead my babies astray the other night. Damn guinea birds!!!


This is the guinea birds story: Neighbors two houses over had these birds but they didn't get along with the chickens or something. So... they just kicked the guineas out the roost, just OUT. So they've come next door to our house to live. My next door neighbor went over to them and said 'your birds are out.' Stupid people said 'we know we kicked them out we don't want them anymore.' What the what??? We called animal control - fail, called humane society - fail, even called police - fail.
So the guineas are just loose on our property and drive my dogs NUTS.
They'll chase them until they're ragged. If I'm out with them that's usually fine but in the middle of the night = NO.
So now I have to go on guinea reconnaissance before I let them out. And Bobo and Meja, you just cross your legs in the middle of the night!!! mommy out

More...


You know what's great about having black dogs at 3:00 a.m. and it's pitch black in the country?
Nothing

Those little buggers got me up and insisted they MUST go out RIGHT NOW! So out we went. I of course stayed on the deck, while they meandered all over the effing where.

I'd had enough and do you think I could find them in the dark? Oh nonee nonee no.

So here's me with my shiny red rain boots (which I love by the way) traipsing all over God's creation, at 3 freaking a.m.! I was too tired to go on much of a hunt so went back to the deck crying.

After about 10, yes 10!, minutes here they come like 'Oh what you were waitin up?'

Damn Guinea birds!

Don't you dare shine me puppies!

some pics of the kids

I can't figure out how to get these to an orderly order so here they are tonight:

This is the puppies best Bobo (brother) Justin

The puppies don't know it but each and every time I see them like this I think of MC Hammer 'can't touch this... nananana can't touch this...'

Please to don't tell them

Bobo.that.is.all.
