Oh, Samuel. It's so difficult NOT to laugh when looking at that face.

An Award!

I got a really cool blog award from my lovely, and talented Malagal friend Layla!


Here are the rules;

1. Thank, and link back to the person who gave you this award.

Thank you so much Lovely Layla!!

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

1. My left hind leg is about 1 inch shorter than my right hind leg. Mom found this out after she rescued me and saw I walked with a slight limp. When my leg was x-rayed it was found that my femur was wired together because of a really bad break I had at some point when I was young. Apparently the wiring made it so my leg didn't grow all the way.

2. Even though I am a "working" breed, I refuse to do any type of work. Unless, holding down the couch is considered "work".

3. If the humans aren't paying attention, I will steal any bowls of food the others walk away from, and carry them outside to finish.

4. Sometimes I snore a little when I sleep.

5. If one of the other dogs is getting attention from one of the humans, I have to push them out of the way so the attention is given to me!

6. When I first came to live here, I jumped over the 4 foot fence because my humans had left and I wanted to follow them. Luckily the neighbor was outside and caught me. Later that same day, the fence was fixed with an overlay fencing that is 6 feet high.

7. Khady is the only pup here I let touch me, play with me or my toys, and just basically annoy me. She's darn lucky I love her so much!


3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.

I think all my friends are great bloggers, so I would like to award this to ALL my readers! I love that you visit us, so you all totally deserve this award!

4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

You are all hereby notified that you are being given this award!


Thank you so much Layla for this wonderful award!!

Sharing

Sharing. Something I'm generally not very good at. Unless it's my baby. Then, it's ok. Sometimes.


Good thing it doesn't happen too often.

Comfy

Mom is always asking me, "Holly!! How can you breathe like that?"


Hmmm, maybe if I ignore her she'll leave me alone.

"Hey Boo! Can you breathe?"


"Boo? Are you ok down there?"



Apparently, she hasn't figured out that the pillow is suppose to be for blocking that stupid flashy beast thing while I nap! And, yes mom, I can breathe just fine!

Humans.........Pffffttt!

Snow Throne

Hey every buddy! Khady Lynn, the snow princess here! I have created my own snow throne! What do you think?

As you can see, my fluffy little butt fits quite nicely.


It's a quite comfy spot!



I think I look quite regal. Don't you agree?

Khady Lynn, snow princess.

Snow Day

We had a lot of fun with our fabulous snow! Just see for yourself!













Yes, I even RAN a little bit!! I think even Khyra will be impressed by that! If not, well, then she's just jealous I have a whole bunch of snow to lay around in and she doesn't! Hawoowoo!!

Happy snow snoozing!

Sweet 16

Happy birthday, sweet 16, Abby!!!



You may be old and gimpy, but you are one tough, beautiful, and incredible girl!!

A list of things this girl has been through in her life include:

1. Car accident in 1997 where she suffered three fractures to her skull and subsequently began having seizures.

2. Contracted e-coli up her nose (vet never figured out how) in 2001 and went through almost 11 months of severe breathing problems, multiple medical treatments and a trip to Colorado State University to try and cure it.

During the e-coli phase she:
a. got shot in the head with a BB gun just above her right eye and ended up with a hole in her forehead.
b. was on prednisone so was very food motivated and got into a fight with Samuel over her dinner and ended up having to get 14 stitches in her face.
c. got very fat (prednisone side affect) and somehow ended up with a hole in her left elbow (you could actually see the bone) that had to be wrapped and re-wrapped by the vet every 10 days for several month's until it healed.
d. was bleeding out her nose due to the chronic inflammation and had to have drops put up her nose 3 times a day for several weeks.

3. In 2005 she blew out (tore) her ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in both her knees. Had surgery to repair the right knee, then 2 months later her left knee. Problems developed with the right knee not healing correctly, so, 2 months after the left knee was healed we re-did the right knee a second time. Then, 2 months later, had to repair the right knee for the third time!


4. A couple of really nasty altercations with Holly that resulted in trips to the ER Vet. Here is a picture of the worst incident. Those white things sticking out are drains that had to be put in.


She has arthritis in both her hips and her front shoulders so is on Rimadyl. She is also hypothyroid so is taking meds for that. And, she is losing her hearing.

And, through all of this, she has been amazing! She even spent a few years being a therapy dog, which, she absolutely loved!

Abby has also been immortalized in a really cool tattoo on my right ankle. The artist did an amazing job!


After all of that, and I'm sure there's something in there that I have forgotten, she is still doing very well. I know each day she is with us is special and a blessing. I will take every day I can get!!

So, I just want to say a very happy birthday to my Abby Doobie Doo! Mommy loves you very, very much!! You were the first, and will always hold a very special place in my heart!

Love,
Mom
