Happy Timber Tuesday

What a happy boy I am!!!

I got to post two days in a row AND I made a new friend.

Now if only I could figure out how to get him out of that tree:)

I think I am going to name him BarkBoy.

Awww Monday

Look what Mom tried to do to me on Mother's Day!!!

Was she hoping to make a new Sibe???

Don't you think five minutes of this torture is enough? Time for you to move on to the headless Lightning.

Disclaimer from Mom:  Timber actually LOVES to be brushed, the only one of the trio.

May the 4th be with you!!!

 As we told you in our post Sunday, somePup has a special day.

Hey, Lightning - wake up!!!

Hey, I was trying to sleep here.  An old man needs his daily nap or two or three.

OK, now that I am awake, did you want something?

My 12th birthday???  Why didn't you wake me sooner???

Is that a bowlful of tasty treats all for me??? 
At least 12 of them. right?  And maybe a 13th for good luck!!!

Of course I will share with Misty and Timber.  But I trust the biggest ones are for me, since I AM the biggest and the oldest.

Happy Birthday to you, Lightning.  Misty and Timber are so happy to call you their big brother.

Mom and Dad wish their Gentle Giant Lightning a very special #12.  Age is catching up with you, but you are still a joy in our lives.  We hope you have many more birthdays to celebrate ahead.  We are so thankful for all that you bring to our family.

Happy Birthday Woos to Lightning from Misty, Timber, Mom, and Dad.

We are sharing this thankful day by hopping on Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

SURPRISE!!! It's Us with an Ussie!!!

 We know - it's been a long time, too long if you ask us.

So we finally got the secretary to let us share a Sunday Ussie.  It's such a pretty day and the grass is so lush and green, why not?

Misty is on month 4 of medications, and unfortunately we don't have any good things to report.  The blood still appears daily in her "output".  Vet says we have to be patient; it takes time.  But Mom is starting to be very discouraged.  And then there is the old man Lightning.  He has a birthday this week.  We will see if we can prod the "chronicler" a bit more and get some birthday wishes up for him.  Poor guy is showing significant signs of laryngeal paralysis, one more thing to deal with:(

Happy end of April and all good things to come in May.  Thanks to all who have been asking about us - so much appreciated.

Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber (who wants to add that HE is doing very well)

Let's see if we can hop aboard The Cat on My Head Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.

Sunday Selfies

Since we have been very naughty and MIA for too long, we thought we would give you a few Selfies to make you smile.

Timber:  I chose to give you a Sunny Sunpuddle Snooze Shot.

Lightning:  Snoozing???  Not me!!!  I am hoping this sideways Selfie look will convince Mom to let me out on the deck.

Misty:  If you have some food for me, I will gladly do a Selfie!!!

Misty Update:  Misty's miserable saga continues.  She is now totally off the prednisone and taking budesonide instead.  It works in a different way on the body as it travels directly through the GI Tract rather than the whole system.  Unfortunately it isn't able to penetrate the intestinal walls to help with the bleeding.  So we are still seeing blood and she also had a bout of nasty diarrhea, resulting in a 7 pound weight loss over about 10 days.  She is now finishing up a round of metronidazole.  She doesn't usually respond very well to metronidazole, but it has helped a little bit. She is also taking cyclosporin to try to assist the budesonide by boosting her immune system.  It's been about 10 days since the two new meds were added; the diarrhea has improved, but the blood is still appearing and the nighttime urinary accidents continue.  Sigh - when will it end?

See, Mom - that's why Skinny Me needs MORE food!!!

We will close with a three-way Ussie!
