Tuesday's Tiptoe

. . . through the tulips with TD.

Well, maybe just one or two tulips.

Are we done yet, Mom?

What now? You want me to look at those tulips over there?

OK, I think I got it - if I look this way, we can be done, right?

Woos, Thunder Dunder

(Update on Dakota - she is working on recovering from a very bad episode Sunday, most likely a seizure or stroke. She is up and about now, eating, but still very quiet, sleeping a lot, and not too solid on her legs. With all her medical issues, it is something we have to expect, but it can be very scary when it comes on so fast. This is the second one she has had in a short time and this one wss much worse. Thank you to everyone for your kind wishes and thoughts.)

Dughallmor Beagles said...

Beautiful tulips....the Sibe's lovely too! Great posing there Thunder :D
We really came by to see how dear Dakota is doing....TY for the update....we are praying for her and crossing our Beagley paws and waggling our tails.

Pippa said...

Lovely photos of Thunder, and Phantom in the Phlox too.

We are thinking of Dakota and send her lots of get well wishes.

My pal Princey had a stroke (or two), and although he was bad the next day, he gradually and slowly started to improve with his mobility.

I think what helped him was lots and lots of love and reassurance, and some gentle massage.

Paws crossed for Dakota.

The Thundering Herd said...

Thunder - I can see that mean leash is preventing you from helping with the landscaping with the tulips. Unfair!

Continued thoughts and prayers for Dakota.

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

What a terrifikh photo shoot!

BUT Mom is shaking her head at the ear worm she must dislodge...MUST!

Tank woo fur the Dakota update...I'll keep all my fluffy tail vibes waving fur her!


Ozzie the OZmonster said...

Another great photo shoot Thunder! You look very pretty with the tulips. We had some of those in our back yard but they didn't bloom this year. Strange! All paws are crossed for Dakota.


Pamela, Kira and Scampi said...

Pretty pictures!
Mom deals with my seizures and/or strokes all of the time, if you want some tips she says feel free to email her. I have them every couple of months. Peanut butter with honey is great for restoring the electrolytes after an episode. And I like it after an hour or so afterward.

Tank said...

Truly terrific tulips Thunder! Toodles, The Tankster

Stella said...

I am making a prayer to Heaven for Dakota's health.
Did I read that one of her problems is Cushings Disease?

Me and my Mom will think all good thoughts for her!

I think the tulips were lucky this time, we don't have our flowers up yet, but pretty soon.


Princess Eva and Brice said...

I think we were attacked by the same earworm as Khyra!

Still sending pawsitive thoughts your way.
