"I Had A Ruff Week Here Guys!"

Boy do I mean RRRRRRUFFFFFFFFFFF. It started all a week ago Monday.
First I had a little fever, then I started shaking, then I peed and Ma noticed that it was a color she is NOT used to seeing...needless to say, I was fit to be tied.
So off I went with Uncle Richard ( who loves me more than ANYTHING in the world...yes even you Beckers) to see Dr. Campbell.

Remind me to find an alternative plan if I ever feel that badly again.
I only went willingly because I felt like a dog......a tired crabby dog who wanted to feel better.Anywaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.................to make a longstory short I had an infection in my bladder. Dr.Campbell said that older dogs get them sometimes...but the other thing that they found out was that I had hypothyroidism! Now Ma told me that the infection was a bit of a blerssing in disguise...you know like the silver lining in the cloud you see often after the fact...

NOW I am going to have to take my antibiotic for a few more days, but the thyroid pill I have to take twice a day for the rest of my life ( which Ma tells me will be a long and happy one.....maybe she's a fortune teller!)
The one who really had it the hardest here while I was recouperating was Beckers.SHE had to play guard dog in the yard to Ma's little charges, who are not looking so little anymore!
Boy did that little gal have her paws full.....no job was too big for her...
...she even tried to help locate food for the mommy bird. We're not certain that she appreciated Becky's snooter bein' in the grub, but hey, her intentions were good!
Once I was able to go out in the garden again, I gave Becky a little down time to help Ma eat.....er....I mean prune the roses...

Now Ma wanted to hare a little bit of news with all of you.......we all know that Ma was born on Father's Day...
and that this particular birthday was very special for Ma...special because now she was going to able able to start getting REALLY big discounts at fabulous places
A lot of people when they reach that double digit number are looking to relocate to one of THESE PLACES

Ma and Pa however are choosing another path.....well at least Ma is...she kinda had to present it to Pa in a roundabout way. Hopefully very soon we will be able to share some very exciting news about what's in store for them....I think it may be involving a horse of a different color, but it's too soon to say.

Well we think we have been yapping long enough here today...Ma & Pa may be going to Chincotegue over the wekend to see if they can locate that horse.or maybe a place to keep it for awhile ;o)
Have a great weekend.we'l check in with you all next week!


  1. Gus: Me and half of the country (and probably the other half as well) are so happy and thrilled that you are feeling better. We love ya, man!!!

  2. Oh G-dog. We're so sorry you were feeling sick, but we're glad they found out about the other condition EARLY! Good news.

    We bet Becky will be glad when you're back around to share the load.

    XXXOOO Daisy, kendra & Bella

  3. Oh G-dog, I am so sorry that you got sick but glad that they found out about your thyroid. I have had a dog with it, Joker. When he went on the pills he really felt a lot better pretty quick.
    Happy Birthday to you Nancy.
    Have you heard that Bambi died 2 weeks and 2 days ago?? She was rolling down the hill to 14 years old. I wish she could have made 14 but she was ready to go and she died with her head in my lap and my hand on her chest and I felt her heart stop!! She died of Congestive Heart failure. I miss her so much!!
    xx, Fern

  4. Angus, I sure hope your new meds bring you back to tip-top health!

  5. We're so sorry that we missed this post and we do apologize for not calling on your Ma's birthday. You know our human brother has the same birthday and our silly Mom almost forgot it too - so much has been going on here - her brain is fried and we won't get into it on a blog but maybe we can talk soon.
