Bacio Before his First FHO

Bacio Before his First FHO

Hello all, hope everyone is well.  I haven’t made a substantial post in a while because I’ve been busy working on it.  Odd little side note before I get into things, I took Bacio’s old crate out to get him used to it again…. He’s terrified of it.  Now he’s terrified of everything so that wasn’t so weird, the strange part was, Yuki, who has broken her teeth trying to get out of cages and crates, seems to have taken…

The New Year Plans…

The New Year Plans…

First, lets start with a big Happy New Year to everyone out there.  Hope this year is even better than the last.  Maybe a year without predicted apocalypses will make people more calm.  2013 will bring some changes for my dogs and I.  The last two posts about Bacio’s hips (Background story here, and X-ray and surgery consult here) have led me to make the decision to have his first FHO procedure done.  I called the vet yesterday and have…

Anxious

Today I find myself very anxious and almost excited to call the vet next week to make Bacio’s appointment for surgery. I’ve been thinking all day about ways I can raise funds to pay for the procedure.  I will offer photography at discounted rates and I’m thinking about some sort of party for him.  If anyone has any ideas I would be glad to hear them. My new years resolution is for my boy to be pain free by the…

Bacio’s Hips, Part 1

Bacio’s Hips, Part 1

Well if you read my last post, you know the story behind Bacio’s current condition.  I took my little labrynees to the Fox Lake Animal Hospital today.  It is a walk in clinic, no appointments and usually a very long wait from what I read on the internet.  According to the sites I read, it opened at 9:00 am and I should get there early or expect a 3-4 hour wait.  I stayed at my dad’s house, which was only…

A holiday gift!

A holiday gift!

Well if you celebrate it, Merry Christmas, if not, Happy Tuesday!  I hope everyone’s day finds them well.  Besides my childhood years, I have never really been the biggest fan of the Christmas holiday.  I love my family and friends, but I don’t feel like I need a holiday to tell me when I can buy them things, and I don’t like having a holiday make me feel obligated to buy them things.  That being said, I received the best…

Socks

Oi.  It’s 11:30 on a Saturday night and here I am having the time of my life… writing on my dog blog…  I got home earlier tonight from a birthday party and little miss Yuki managed to find a can of Pam olive oil spray.  She didn’t eat the can, she just likes to take it to prove she was upset I left her.  However, I suspect Bacio somehow got sprayed, because he wouldn’t stop licking his legs and paws….

I was just checking our my various social media websites (you can now find links to the twitter and facebook accounts in the page header to the right) to see if there was anything fun worth sharing.  ASPCA created a video, that I think really needs to be shared.  It is about puppy mill puppies.  It isn’t one of those Sarah McGlachlan sad videos of shelter dogs.  And it is only a minute long, so I encourage you to give…

Dogs in the Bed

Hey all.  Hope everyone’s holiday went alright and all the doggies out there got little treats.  To all the non-American readers, hope you had a happy Thursday.  I had tried to make a post on Thanksgiving with an adorable picture of the dagz but I couldn’t figure out how to do it from my phone.  Oh well. So the weather has been getting colder here and getting out from under the blankets has become even harder.  Its just so warm…
