Thankful Thursday





Do you know Ruby the Airedale?  You know, she has that lovely yard filled with beautiful flowers and a super cool tunnel where she likes to take all her treasures.

Well, that sweet Ruby did something very nice for us.  A little while ago, Goose and his Mom had a name-my-monkey contest AND Ruby won!!!  But she asked Goose to send the prize to us.  How sweet was THAT!!!  We received this great card with the picture of a Weimaraner (we think that Reilly and Denny's Mom made it).  Inside the card was a note from Goose and his Mom explaining what Ruby wanted to do.  AND a gift card to one of our favorite stores - Petco.


(That is Lightning's snooter photo bombing.)

 



With Mom not being so mobile lately, we haven't had a chance to use the card, but we know we will be able to find something we all like.


Phantom wants some yummy treats, and Ciara and Lightning are hoping for a monkey like Goose has.


Speaking of Phantom, he has something wrong with his front right leg/shoulder.  He was at the vet's this morning because he started limping very badly last night.
 
Now he is on some anti-inflammatory meds to see if they help.  The vet thinks he might have a sprain or a soft tissue injury.  He also mentioned another possibility that Mom doesn't even want to think about.  So if you could spare a little bit of the power of the paw for our senior sibe, we would be so grateful to you.




Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

BeadedTail said...

We're sending lots of purrs for Phantom to get better soon! Hugs to the Momster too! That was very nice of Goose to have the prize sent to you!

Sue said...

We're hoping it's the same problem Bailey had a couple weeks ago. Rest and some Rimadyl for a week took care of it and she's running with the pack again now. We have our paws crossed.


Jeanne Pursell said...

Prayers for Phantom! Sure hope that the Rimadyl and rest will help! That was real nice of Goose to send the gift to you guys!! Hope your mom is feeling better. It sure has been a crazy summer. Mama totally loves that card too! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

Enjoy your Petco card. Ruby is a doll.

Love Ruby & Penny

sprinkles said...

What a sweet thing for Ruby to give you her prize! I do hope it helped cheer y'all up a bit.

Phantom most definitely has my prayers, and those of my boys too. Phantom is my favorite out of your pack. Hope he gets to feeling better soon.

NanaNor's said...

WE don't know Ruby but it sounds so much like something Goose and his mom would do. What wonderful buddies we all have in blogland. I'm hoping Mom's back is doing better and she is feeling so much better each day-I think and will pray that Phantom just wanted Mom to have some company. Keep me posted-8-)

K (Suka's Mom) said...

Hi Op Pack,

I know Ruby, met her a few months before Suka passed. She is a lovely, beautiful pup! And what a heart! So wonderful of her to forward her prize to you. She is special :->

Sending healing prayers to your mom that she feels better soon so you can all go to Petco and find some yummy treats and fun toys!

Lightening, love the snooter photo bomb. You are such a funny pup!

Phantom, my thoughts and prayers are with you that you heal and have nothing more than a sprain. Stay strong, sweetie! *hugs

Cheers,

K

Sending POTP to Phantom.

tpagrl said...

Phantom, hope you are up to snuff again REAL soon. TOY and sending hugs and slobbery kisses your way.

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

That was so nice of Ruby! She rocks! We're big fans and love to see her in her tunnel!

Hope Phantom is mending... NO MORE SICK WOOS!!!!

What Remains Now said...

Sending Phantom super power of the paw. Take it easy, Phantom, and hope you feel more sprightly soon. A monkey from Petco would probably help lots.

Amber DaWeenie said...

Phantom, we're sending you lots of POTP and some good vibes from Florida. Feel better soon!

chicamom85 said...

First of all Mommy says "not my Phantom, he will be just fine" "He just needs some rest". I am crossing paws and Mommy is praying. That was so nice of Ruby, she is also not feeling well, I must get a batch of magic bubbles going to all of you.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Cocoa and Melon said...

Oh Woos, we are definitely not around as much as we would like to be to befriend everyone better. We have seen Ruby around (it was through her blog that we discovered Blogville) but never had a chance to go through and say hi yet - maybe now Melon will get a push to do it!
Anyway, sorry for the rambling, Melon in particular is quite long-winded. (You may have noticed already, haha!) You are well deserving of a gift and we are sending POTP to Phantom. Yes my paws are little but I know they are very strong. And Melon has a soft spot for the senior ones and definitely a soft spot for Phantom.
Try not to worry too much about possibilities Momster, it won't change the outcome, it will just make you feel worse.
Cocoa and Melon

P.S. Love Lightning's snooter-photobombing. You go Lightning!

HOwdy Woos. What a wonderful friend Ruby is. Enjoy your treats when you get them. We have all paws crossed here for Phantom. Take care mates. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
P.S. Hope your mum's health improves soon too!!

rottrover said...

Ugh! POTP on its way!

Molly The Wally said...

That was so kind and we hope mum gets to go to Pecto to get you a monkey too. Phantom we hope it is just a sports injury and we are pretty sure it is. Rest up pal and take it easy. Pip gave us a scare the other week when her back legs went but she is doodling around like it never happened. We send a big load of the POTP to you.
Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly

The Furries of Whisppy said...

How wonderful of Ruby to send the prize to you. :)
We are keeping our paws crossed and saying our purrayers for Phantom. May it be a simple sprain that is easily fixed with the anti-inflammatories. x

Darn it all, I missed this post yesterday. That was so nice of Goose to send you his pressie. Such a nice guy, that Goose is.
OK Phantom, we are sending tons of purrs and a nice woof from our dog Ande and some hee haws from the donkeys, that you get better really soon. Hugs to the Mom too. Lots of prayers also, so just get better.

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

We have our healing purrs revved up high for Phantom. Ruby sure is a sweet girl and it was very thoughtful and kind of her to have her prize sent to you. We know you will all get something you will enjoy.

Janice Webb said...

Oh Phantom, you just chill out and let those anti-inflammatory medications work. We will settle for anything less than a full recovery. Praying for you.

Janice, Snuggles, Sassy, and Dixie
