Th-EARS-day Update

Mom seems to think I should be thankful today, so I am trying to feel good about this whole ear thing.

I am happy to report that there has been no more head shaking since my visit to the V.E.T.  BUT let me tell you it was not a fun trip.

Ciara, stop laughing at me.  You are lucky you weren't the one they were sticking things in.  I had scopes in my ears, Q-tips in my ears, plungers thingies in my ears, AND something stuck in that place under my tail that is off limits to humans in MY opinion. 

The good news is that I found out there are NO earworms in there, no water, no bugs, and no potatoes.  We hope that makes Madi and Tweedles feel better since they were concerned about water and potatoes.  And my temp is normal.  I could have told them that without them having to stick that thing you-know-where.  What they DID find is a small amount of "debris" and some YEAST - I don't know what that is, but I sure hope it disappears soon.  The vet says it might just be an isolated infection, but there is also the chance it is allergy-related.  If things aren't all hunky dory by next week, then I have to get some steroid drops in my ears too - no way, I say!!!

That bottle on the floor in front of us is the magic potion to help eradicate that YEAST!!!

YIKES - I see TWO of those plunger thingies.  And a bottle of Mometmax.  Whatever, I just hope it works to the max

Hear me ROAR - I am not too happy about Mom sticking those things in my ears.  In fact, she made the V.E.T. do it yesterday.  She says it is no easy feat to get me to hold still long enough to do my ears.  So if any of your peeps want to take a road trip, head on over and lend her a few helping human paws.

Now I might be persuaded to cooperate a little better if Mom can find a lot of that salmon jerky I spy on the counter to share with me:)

Thanks to all for the many good thoughts you sent my way.

Wondering on Wednesday

I often hear that expression - "now you put a bug in my ear"!

I am wondering if that is what has happened to me??? 

I have been shaking my head off and on for the last two days, and it seems to have gotten worse today.  Mom says that when she finds me doing a lot of what you see in the photo above, something isn't quite right.  So I am off to see the vet to find out if there really is a bug in my ear:)  I am not sure what she means, but Mom says that isn't what it means to have a bug in your ear.

Chewy-Day strikes AGAIN!!!

Today we found one of those very special boxes at our door.

It may not look like a very big box, but trust us, it is FILLED with double deliciousness!!!  We got TWO products to review this month!!!  We love that sweet Sydney.

Today we are going to share one of the two products we received this month for our review.

Look - it's another great product from Grandma Lucy!!!  Oven Baked Pumpkin Dog Treats!!!

We received a 14 oz BIG bag of these "all natural" goodies. From the website, here is what we learned:

Here is a closer look at these cute little bears - their bellies look like they are full of yummy goodness.  Let's see what is inside there.


Organic Wheat Flour, Organic Dehydrated Cane Juice, Organic Sunflower and/or Organic Canola Oil and/or Organic Palm Oil, Organic Cane Juice Syrup, Organic Pumpkin Powder, Organic Mace, Organic Cinnamon, Soy Lecithin

Sounds pretty good to us.  No cranberries - we have been told that cranberries can lower the threshold for seizures in some dogs, so we are not eating any products that contain cranberries.

OK, Mom, now that you have shared all the technical stuff, can we please do our taste test???

Sweet and gentle Ciara always takes her food so nicely.

Lightning - yes, that IS his snooter - is usually not quite as patient, but certainly he is as appreciative. 

We both loved these crunchy and tasty treats.  We give them eight paws up.

And now, Mom, we think we have earned another round of those pumpkin bears!!!

As alwas, we received this free bag of treats from in exchange for an honest review.  No strings attached.
