Moslty Wordless Woos on Wednesday

Group shot - just hanging together on the deck.


Excuse the poor quality - it was shot from inside by the Momster.



Tummy time with Ciara




Is this a better view?



Look, TD wants to show his tummy too.



No, I didn't - that flashy beast was just intruding on my nap.





OK, here's a bonus for my readers - this is a much better shot of me.



Phantom says, "This is all you are going to get of my tummy. I am much more reserved than my other packmates."



How about a play bow instead?



Thanks to everyone for all the good wishes for me. I was feeling better last week, but then I had another rough weekend with the sickies.



The vet has extended my special diet indefinitely and put me back on that horridly bitter medicine again.



I know I need to eat, but I really don't always want to eat. The vet is concerned that I am getting too thin. He said I need to eat in order to fight the sickies.

(Note from Mom - I included the above photo so you can see how thin our poor boy is.)



Thanks again to all of you for your pawsitive thoughts for me. I promise to try to feel better.




Don't worry - I am taking good care of my big brother.



Have a great day!!!



Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Poor Phantom! He does look like he's getting thin. Hopefully he'll start eating more soon and will be able to gain some weight back! Chloe lost a lot of weight during her whole surgery ordeal (she was overweight to start with and now is down to a normal weight), and it was hard to get her to eat too.

As for TD and Ciara...they have a twin in Virginia...Riley has been sleeping on her back like them all morning long! I read somewhere that it means a dog is comfortable in their surroundings and also that they may be doing it to keep cool since there is less fur on their belly.

Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for always commenting on my blog even when I haven't had the chance to get around and visit you! I can always count on a comment from you and I love that, so thanks!! :)

Frankie's Mom here... I have a dumb question to ask... can dogs have ENSURE??? Could Phantom???
Do they make something like that for dogs??? They SHOULD.

Frankie says to tell you that he LOVES the picture of the three at the top of the steps.

Pedro said...

Oh wow. That last picture could be blown up and hung over your fireplace! Phantom, I hope you get hungry again. Though you are as handsome as a model, you don't need to be model thin. Hope the sickies stay away!!! Thinking of you dude!

Reilly / Bree said...

Poor Phantom - I am so sorry you are having bouts of the sickies. I went through almost of year of that before they found out what the problem was and also lost a lot of weight. Hang in there big guy - and keep trying to eat okay !

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

We were waiting to hear about Plhantom and are crossing all our paws that he will eat a little better.

Such lovely photos today!

Woofs,
Tommy

Bobby said...

Phantom does look thin, you can see by his coat he is not well.
All our paws are crossed for him to get well.
You guys look so prety, Pip still wants a coat like yours.
Licks Bobby.

Suka said...

hey Phantom,

My paws are crossed that you get over your sickies soon. You are looking very thin, so I hope you start eating soon. I know it is hard and you don't want too, but we want you healthy again. Sorry you have to take that icky medicine. But, I bet if you ate and got better then you wouldn't need to take it! Get well soon!! Prayers are with you!

Ciara, you crack me up with your tummy shot! So cute! And Thunder, you and Phantom sure know when to bring out the tongues! :->

Suka

Channon said...

Group shots of your pack warm my heart almost as much as the sight of my fur-girls snuggling.

Poor Phantom. You are too thin, and we're SO SORRY you have to take the icky medicine again, but paws crossed it makes you all better!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Very beautiful photos of everyone!! Phantom, that food you have is what Holly actually loves to eat!! Please please eat and get much better. Those pills that are bitter sound like some that we have had in the past.....eat with them and they won't be so bad! Our prayers are with you. Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Kitty+Coco said...

Phantom, PLEASE try to eat a little for your mum. It stinks that your pills are bitter. You would think that with modern technology they could make those taste like a hot dog..Anyway..Go out and enjoy your pretty yard today!

Kitty and Coco

BeadedTail said...

We like seeing your cute tummies and adorable faces! Phantom, we hope you get over your sickies and feel like eating more soon! We eat too much so maybe we'll meet you in the middle and we'll all be eating what we should! Lots of love, kisses and prayers being sent your way!

jen said...

What great pictures!

I am sorry to hear that Phantom is back on the icky medicine! Does he like the I/D???

Doris Sturm said...

What lovely photos, but I am sad about your tummy troubles, sweet boy! Isn't there some type of appetite stimulant for doggies? I am going to ask the vet next time I go because Gizzy always has been a very finicky eater and it's a struggle twice a day for me to force-feed him - he'd not eat for 2 days if I didn't make him, but I do!

Archie and Melissa said...

what a wonderful pack you all are!
we are sending p all of our love and lots of mini meatloaves!
xoxoxo

scotsmad said...

Ruby's Raiser said...

We wish we could erase your tummy troubles, dear Phantom. We'd be glad to give you our last Frosty Paw if it meant that you would eat.

Ginger Jasper said...

Oh I hope you find this special diet becomes more appetizing. You have to get big & fit for summertime!

Sometimes I think it would be nice to have a pack.

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

TC and Ciara's pose remind of a a floofy floozy I know. I'm not going to mention any names, but I'll look over pawsylvania way and whistle at the X-Terra that chauffeurs her around!

Phantom! Dog-gone-it! I love your play bow but you really need to eat! I'll be sending good thoughts that you all of a sudden get a hankering to eat everything in sight!

The Thundering Herd said...

Love the group shot on the deck. A beautiful furry family.

And, Phantom, keep eating, our friend. Kodiak says it can be tough sometimes to have an appetite, but this is the one thing to listen to your humans about.

Sarge said...

Hey Everyone!

PeeS: Yes, my two-leggers call me Monkey - something to do with noises I make. Phoenix is also known as Pig or Piggy for similar reasons. Cali is... Bear - I'm sure you can guess why. :)

Mr. Pip said...

Oh Phantom, you do look thin ...but you are still just as handsome as ever and make my mom squeal every time she sees you. I have been on that I/D food many a time. It's not so bad - though I am sure the medicine is no fun!

Sending you all my yorkie good cheer and good health!

Your pal, Pip

24 Paws of Love said...

We love all those furry belly shots. So cute! Take care of your big brother, looks like he needs some extra loving. Hope you feel better real soon Phantom. :)

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Phantom, we are so sorry you are having so many sickies. Has your mom tried vanilla ice cream with a little honey mixed in? Chicken & rice [human quality, not dog food with those flavors]? We're sure your vet must have checked for it, but inappropriate play bowing is one of Abby's symptoms when she has pancreatitis. So is not eating proper food and just eating grass. We have our paws crossed for you!

And TD, happy belated birthday! We're sorry we missed it and hope you had a wonderful day.

Jed & Abby

Cheers,
Maxx

We loved all the tummy shots. Fenris is drooling over Ciara's tummy shot.

Phantom we were very impressed with your play bow. You have gotten thin though. We are sending healing purrs and lots of hugs and much love to you. We hope you feel better soon and start eating.

KB said...

My K is just like Phantom. No way is anyone getting a photo of her tummy unless they are very stealthful about it!

I truly hope that Phantom starts feeling better soon. My heart is with him, rooting for his tummy to feel better so that he want to eat.

Paws are crossed here.

Maybe the meds will help Phantom. We're so sorry he doesn't want to eat. That has to make you nuts w/ worry for him.
Blessings from all of us in the holler...

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Dearest Phantom, we send White Dog Army woos that you get over the sickies and start feeling better. Our positive energy will help food taste more appetizing so that you eat more and build up your strength. We also send comfort to your very worried momster.

Thunder and Ciara look like they really know how to relax! It is wonderful to see all the photos of everyone.
