2017 is officially here and it just doesn't feel any different??
I guess that's the way it goes when you're a senior dog!!

Our house guests Bella who once was a foster here, and her bff Carmin were visiting for the last two weeks and went home January 5th.
It is nice having our house get back to normal...

January 7th 2017  Got our first inch or so of snow for the year and not too happy about it at all !


Since the snow was dry and not very deep, Dad used the leaf blower to make some paths
even though we don't always use them when we're excited...
A couple of quick videos   HERE   and  HERE


January 9th and a visit to the Doctor for another infection in my mouth...
Just had 8 teeth pulled six weeks ago and now I have to have my teeth cleaned again tomorrow, WTH ?

January 10th...  Jinx and Jack got their breakfast this morning and all I got was meds in a pill pocket, a ride to the vet's office and I was left there...  NOT COOL !



What a long day today was...  Stuck in a cage except when I was taken out to have two more teeth pulled..
Going to sleep really good tonight!

Yup, Life Is Good ! Especially since it's almost the end of February and the weather has been in the 60's and 70's...

Spoke too soon since today the 26th,  the temps are in the low 30's....  No big deal since I can just kick back in the kitchen where it's nice & warm...

March 14th and those few days of the 70's a few weeks ago are sure being missed.
Have no use for sleet and freezing rain since it's hard to walk on without slipping.



I'm too old for this crap!

End of March, mid 60's  and hopefully all of the snow and ice is gone....

The middle of May and it's sure getting noisy around here...
I do believe it has something to do with all of these crunchy snacks walking around in the grass!



It's June 12th and I'm upset because I didn't get any breakfast this morning...
Since my breath has gotten bad again and I keep air licking Mom & Dad scheduled a Vet appointment today to see if I need any more teeth pulled.... 
Geeze, I already lost 10 !

I just got an exam, got to leave and I was excited, until I heard I have to go back this Friday for another dental cleaning and most likely come home with fewer teeth again...  What a drag!!

June 16th, had another dental cleaning and only had one tooth pulled this time and I was home by noon.
Doctor Anderson said I will need to have a cleaning done at least twice a year..



June's almost gone and the noisy 4th of July is next week. 
That's when this strange house guest EZRA will be going home.
Mom's been watching him here for about 6 days now and he's a strange dog..

I think he has a little mountain goat in his blood!!

Jack has a Doctor appointment today, July 11th to check out a lump on his throat jaw area.. 
So this morning in the office I roll out of bed onto the floor and start kicking and look like a zombie for awhile.
That freaked out Dad and even though I was fine after a few minutes I will be joining Jack at the vet's office this morning.
    Mom's coming home from work early to help out and take Jinx so he's not home alone.

I had xrays and it turns out I have fluid built up on my lungs with a heart murmur and sent home with a bunch of pills.
I have to go back in a week to get my bp checked and another chest xray to see if fluid is reduced.  I do feel better!!

Jack had x-rays and had fluid taken from the lump that has to be sent off for analysis and came back as not cancer and also sent home with a bunch of meds.  

Let the healing begin especially with Dad's Visa Card!


I have had a few follow up appointments with Dr Anderson about my heart condition and as of July 20th, I heard my condition has stabilized.  Jack got a steroid shot and sent home with more antibiotics and they seem to be the one that has done the most good at shrinking that lump on his neck.    Another re-check is scheduled for us on Tuesday July 25th...
