Bouncy Butt

Turkey and I went and played with EggRoll last night. OMG! Turkey has never really played but last night...oh she played! They took turns chasing each other and bouncing and playing. Turkey was like a puppy! Oh, how it warms my heart.

Egg Roll

See the white dog? That's Egg Roll. she ate an egg roll out of my hand one day and she is cute and timid. I am trying to catch her so she can be liberated from the street life and either i will keep her or i will find a home for her. Right now she is captured in a girls yard. She's too scared to let me touch her but she's contained. Turkey and I are going over to play today!

I PROMise I'll stop soon!

This is Lanie's New Years Eve dress. It was her last outfit and it looked fantastic! i didn;t get enough pictures of it but it was a little off the shoulder with a 1.5 to 2 inch scrunch at the top in crushed silver and a 3 inch scrunch at the bottom framing a black velvet bodice. It was fastened with velcro and was quite slimming! Of course, spleen removal is slimming too. Scott hopes i don;t start dressing Turkey, but really turkey doesn't have an eighth of the fashion sense that Lanie had.

This is why I couldn't have her stuffed

My new job

So I've been here for 2 weeks. Its a little better than the beginning but I'm not in love. You can tell when you're in love with your job when you make it there on time and you actually kinda look forward to being there. Whether its the people or the actual work, it just isn't so hard to be there if you love it. Sure there are times where you might be on a downswing with your work but it turns around and you find your joy again. I wish I didn't dread getting up in the mornings. At lunch its like there are rockets attached to my feet. These rockets bring me nowhere but out the door to wander around and find a place to sit and watch the time tick by until I have to go back 1 hour later. Last Friday I made one label. Sure I answered some phone calls but overall I made one label. It looked fantastic though! Even perfect. Today I made about 15 labels. Maybe 18. But the excitement was looking each address up. What a fun game! Sigh...thank goodness its FRIDAY!!!!!!!!

While I am embarrassing the sisters...

Didn't there used to be a toyota commercial with people jumping for joy and the jingle said "what a feeling?"

My big sister and i spent a good 10 minutes of jumping in the hallway to catch some good shots of her in the air. I think I should be a fashion photographer because i really coached her into giving it her all. America's Next Top model should hire me!

My sister will kill me...

My little sister had a nightmare about having a beard. Really, what female hasn't? My nightmare is coming to life but i maintain it. Anyway, my sister in law skillfully crafted this picture and slipped it into a frame at my Dad's house. It took a while but everyone finally noticed it. My little sister wasn't thrilled but I love how surreal this picture looks so I'm putting it on here. Sorry E. you can hit me later.

Lanie week!

Lanie loved a car ride! Even with her stupid cone on she couldn't be forced to be unhappy. She was always cheery and excited. I just hope she gets car rides in doggie heaven.

Bye baby- 12 years of awesomeness

My baby passed. Kiss your babies today.

Lanie update

Lanie came home last night and we snuggled and she ate a hearty meal. Then this morning she was cool and she ate a bit but then threw up. I called the vet and they said bring her in so I went to get her to the car and she collapsed. i rushed her to the vet and she's there now. Kiss you doggies and kitties for luck!

Cross your fingers

Lanie had another procedure just before Christmas and they opened her up like a present and took the wound out and then re-did her. She had stitches until today . YAY for her side healing! So I took her to the regular vet to show her off and let them know she was good and just had a bit of depression. I also mentioned that because she was depressed she was hardly eating and only walks and car rides brought her joy. Well, Dr. Miller looked at her gums, said they were pale and ran a couple of tests. So today I was all excited and then learned she has a mass in her belly, most likely her spleen. She had x-rays, an ultrasound, a blood transfusion and is currently in surgery. Cross your fingers for my dog baby!

Update! As of 8 she is doing great, waking up from surgery. She's now spleenless and the vet said he'd email pics. a normal spleen would have weighed about a pound but hers was 6 pounds! Learn more here
