Tuesday's Tale of the Tail

How a puppy can be easily amused!

If you listen very carefully during the video, you might be able to figure out what else we were doing while the pupster was being the cracker pup.

Thanks to everyone for the many suggestions you gave yesterday for Ciara. Mom was very happy to see that there is even more progress today. She increased the amount of grain free kibble and the amount of pumpkin in her feedings. We are holding off on the rice because we want to see if she does OK with the grain free, and we don't want to make too many changes at one time. We had tried yogurt earlier but didn't really see any change. And yes, she has been on metronidazole too. The numerous antibiotics she had could also have had an effect on everything. Right now she is only getting Ty Lan, which is a wide spectrum antibiotic. If things continue to firm up, we will be stopping that soon too. The good news is that she has never really acted sick at all. Thanks again to all.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Cute video. What a sweet sister you have. The fun thing about a tail is that it can be a fun toy that never gets lost.

Wow, she was telling her tail off but good! She is a beautiful baby and looks super soft.

As for the poop issue, I have 2 pups that have IBS issues. I have been using this product called Coco Therapy which is basically straight up coconut meat. They LOVE it and it has a lot of fiber which has been helping the poop issue. Might give it a try, we highly recommend.

Phantom and Thunder, you have to be very much NICE to GIRRRRLS beclaws... they grow up to be wimmen!! And I can speak from pawsonal experience... WIMMEN can make you do what ever THEY want.. and the strange part is... you won't even mind it. I'm just sayin' guys.

We are happy to read that Ciara's poop is getting better. We know from experience, that's a hard "condition" to deal with. It seems that her diet may, just may, be the answer. (Unfortunately, for us, for me, anyway, the trigger is ... ummmm ... getting a little too happy and a little too excited ... but ... luckily that is gradually getting better and better.)

That video was priceless and the pictures of Ciara and showing her to be turning into a gorgeous lady. Wow! She's gonna turn some heads!

Those Safari toys are perfect for you! We can just imagine your fun, and we know Hootie and BRD must be pleased to see you enjoying them!

Happy week!

Aren't puppies fun? I love to sit and watch them play and make discoveries and act silly. How can anyone be sad with a puppy around?

Ludo van Doggy said...

Were you making treats in the microwave? We heard the beeps!
Ciara is too cute chasing her tail - thankfully Phantam and Thunder you guys are far too sophisticated for that.
love and kisses

Bijou said...

Hi every buddy!

I wish I had a long floofy tail to chase like Ciara. You guys got some terrific prizes! Thanks for sharing all the fun pictures.


Alex93andme said...

Very adorable video!! Ciara really is after that tail! I'm glad the poop is hopefully getting better. I know it can be a very "trying" issue to deal with..I've had two dogs with the problem. Was that a microwave beeping in the background! Phantom and Thunder look very relaxed and are probably laughing at Ciara chasing her tail! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Anna the GSD said...

Ciara you are very adorable!!

Keep with the canned pumpkin...it helps keep us regular, it just takes a day or two for it's magical pumpkin-ness to take effect.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Ok Ciara what are you going to do when you catch that fluffy thing following you.. Glad mom has got you on the good stuff. You will be healthy in no time..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Hey, we thought that was a kitty specialty!

Jake of Florida said...

Gotta' teach those pesky tails a lesson or else they'll keep tagging along and making trouble.

We're great believers in pumpkin for those embarrassing problems. Hope it helps. But Ciara's problem could easily be from all the -- as Lacie would say -- AUNTIE BYE OTTER TICKS.

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Aniemother said...

BOL! She's so cute. Mom say I did the same thing (just imagine a very round little black thing just reaching his little curly tail) - and Virus did too. He would chase his tail until he fell over from dizziness. Hyssy hasn't though. At least one of us is sensible I guess..


Huffle Mawson said...

I know how you feel Ciara. My tail is not to be trusted either.

p.s. my mum was laughing and laughing and she kept going on about how cute you are!

BeadedTail said...

Oh Ciara, you are just the cutest! You are very entertaining too as you could tail! Ha roo roo!

Abby said...

Hi, You Guys...

Ciara is soooo adorable...

Loved the video...

Tails can be fun...But you just don't want to bite too hard...

Abby xxxooo

Gus said...

Phantom and Thunder: Woo guys gotta stop putting that fluffy thing on Ciara's butt. Clearly this is the first time she has seen that thing, and she doesn't like it.


Alasandra said...

Sorry to hear Ciara is having tummy trouble. Purrs that she gets better soon. Fenris still likes to chase his tail. When he actually catches it he falls over us cats MOL & Mommy LOL when he does that. ~AFSS

The Thundering Herd said...

Wait a minute. Ciara was in puppyhood and the microwave was running and the TV was on - WHILE Miss Khyra was on Youtube? We thought MFT would come haunt you if you disrespected her like that.

Mango said...

At least it is HER tail for a change, right?

I heard Khyra's DOH in the background.


Benny and Lily said...

that is to funny.

Sapphire said...

Good Ciara. hope to hear more good news soon!

Life With Dogs said...

Crappy news never sounded so good! ;)
In all seriousness (as much as that state pains me) I'm really glad she's coming around. They need those nutrients to stick when they are little ones...

Sophie Brador said...

Puppies are just not that smart. I mean, let's face it. Us olds are brilliant and those puppies are kind of, well, dumb. But one day, puppies will get to grow up to be super duper smart and beautiful beasties just like me.


P.S. I was NEVER a puppy.

Deborah said...

I'm glad she is feeling better! I also went "window shopping" again and I gave you a shout!!!
Have a great day!

Twinkietinydog said...

Great, so you see some improvement already! Wow. As for the video and the other video of somebody's mother walking her...very funny. What cracked me up the most was the way Ciara falls with a thud on the floor. Glad to hear your family's fine. Luckily there were no injuries. The last hour we've been having tons of aftershocks and pretty soon we'll get used to it again. :)

Lorenza said...

Thanks Ciara for giving us a good laugh watching you chasing your tail!
Glad to know she is improving on the "poop department".
Kisses and hugs

Cyber-sibes said...

Glad to hear she's feeling better too.

Ms. ~K said...

Oh Ciara, You know how to keep me amused as well!!! I've watched the video 3 times!

Wild Dingo said...

i admit, i watched that video more than a few times!

you were listening to Khyra's mom on her wednesday walk video! LOL! and doing something in the microwave.

hey, i didn't know Ciara was sickie. i know she had a little trouble. i don't like to hear she's on antibiotics. so sorry!

now i have to go read and catch up...


It's fun when you are your own chew toy! So sill Ciara and plz poop a turd poop a turd! Dog blog pals are a great resource are we! You may wanna try a lil banana in her food too. It's a stool firmer.

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh my God, Ciara - that video is the cutest thing! It's like you never realised you had a tail and then suddenly saw it there!! :-)

Sorry I haven't been able to visit for a while and I missed your sickies, Ciara! But I'm glad you're feeling better!

Honey the Great Dane
ps. I loved your "safari hunt" video too - what an angelic face you have!!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi pups,

That video is CUTE!! Our mom idolizes Ciara.. she is madly head over heels in love with your little sister!!

We just read about Ciara's poop-y problem and glad that there's improvements. When we first had Hershey over a year ago, she had a case of diarrhea for a really long time. Took her to the vet countless times and spent heaps of money, and at the end of the day, one of the vets recommended to mom to feed Hershey plain yoghurt on a daily basis. Something about acidophilus and how it is good for the intestines. So we have been feeding her yoghurt daily and **knock on wood** so far, so good!! (we probably jinxed it now.. LOL)

Stella said...

Ciara, it sounds like your Mom is doing the right stuff for you! Now if you can just manage that tail of yours. . .

Kisses and Happy St. Paddy's Day!


Dennis the Vizsla said...

Ah yes, I forgot about pumpkin!! Always good at firming things up!
