AJ here.... We're going to need a slightly bigger cloud up here. I said I'd share my lookout spot, but this is one BIG purrball :wub:

And can you send up some Fancy Feast and chicken too... and some biscuits for the woofs.

That's better.... remember us that way.

AJ .. all supplies on the way...pls show a little love for "His Mammothness" ...and hug Ms. Zoom too ... she got along so much better with cats than other dogs. Your Momma wrote a beautiful note to Donna ...Bandit's Mom ...everyone I think here was brought to tears by it. Although, I have been crying all weekend for Donna and Bandit just feeling the human pain she's going thru.

but you guys have fun ...send a hello to your Momma, and make sure Bandit is settled in nicely and he lets his Momma know he's ok and still lovin' her so much. And tell Ms. Zoom her Momma is still missing her everyday and sends lots of special Zooooooooooom-hugs.

Paula ...your post to Donna was absolutely beautiful. You are a gifted writer. Hope all's well with you and the pride...

Susan, MisChief

"AJ, Junebug here. Got to ask you a question or two, and know you can hear me...."

"Hey, Junee, yes I can hear you, and I saw you too, trying to chew on the plastic bags again. Didn't I warn you those would only lead to trouble?"

"Yes, big bruder; and I try not to, but sometimes I just forget. But my questions today involve coyotes and somethin' mom is calling rubies, or something like that. She told me I have to go to the doctor this week so I can get a shot to prevent rubies. But, AJ, I like rubies."

"Junee, it's rabies, not rubies and you definitely don't want rabies. Nice thing about Rainbow Bridge, there's no such thing as rabies here. But until you can come here, you have to be careful not to catch the rabies. But what does that have to do with coyotes?"

"Nuttin' but momma won't let 'Belle venture outside cause there have been some coyotes nearby. We even heard 'dem howlin' the other night. Momma says if they are hungry, they will eat us. I like the coyotes, but not if they are going to eat us. AJ, are there coyotes there at rainbow bridge?"

"Junee, you will have to wait to learn how magnificent it is here at the bridge. There are coyotes here, but they are not hungry or hurt. I have to run along now. Give momma a hug from me. And tell Donna the big boy has settled in and still loves his fancy feast."

Poor Junebug,

I brought her home from having her rabies vaccination and almost immediately she started having a bad reaction. She is now resting, but was pretty sick for a while tonight. Luckily there was a late show for an earlier appointment than ours, so they took us in early. We were scheduled to be the last appointment. Had that happened, it would have been a trip to the ER instead.

Poor Junebug. Tuck had a recent vaccine reaction-it didn't happen until 6 hours after his vacc-his eyes swelled as well as hives. I just want to warn u that sometimes the hives can come back over the next couple days. I hope they gave prednisone to give for a few days as well as whatever antihistimine for at least 24 hours after the last hives. Tuck needed to stay on pred for 5 days (he would have a couple pop up hives on day 2,3 and 4) and an antihistimine for 6 days.

The boyz have to stay away from coyotes too Junie-we hear them howling.

Hope no more hives pop up!

Hugs!

Her reaction was vomiting. At first I thought motion sickness from the car ride, and I think the vet did too as he asked my just how fast was I driving. Then her paws started swelling.

Thanks for the warning about the hives. Junebug's records now carry the warning to pre-medicate with cortisone/benadryl prior to vaccinating. Thankfully the rabies vaccine is good for 3 years.

Hugs to the boyz and you too. Hope the vertigo stays out of your life for a while.

Decided the errands could wait, and spent the afternoon working in AJ's garden with Skeeter supervising. The pride and I are going to miss our neighbor. After 12 years of being neighbors he is moving to a new home. It was nice to have his input about the garden. He always helped to make it beautiful each year.

So funny ....been thinking of you and thinking I just have to post. Do you watch "Dancing with the Stars"? ...This last week, they had "Motown Music" as their theme ....remembered your response to my singing the Supreme's "Baby Love" to MisChief (which by the way has become her theme song) ...she gets all excited everytime I sing it to her....it's so funny. She'll come running even if she's in another room and I use that to call her.....lol!!!

Hope garden goes well ...... needed the heat on here last two nights and will continue this week ...think tonite I may finally christen my fireplace as been having difficulty getting heat to work again!

Hope all's well my friend ....and life's being kind.

I'm sorry for not responding sooner. Thank you and please keep the prayers coming.

Skeeter started bleeding fairly heavily from her nose. The vet and I, because of some other indications, suspect the cause is a tumor that has reached critical mass, and is located in a place that has very little chance for successful removal, and any quality of life.

We are taking it day by day, and treating what we can. She started eating on her own last night, and has eaten again this morning- hopeful signs. I hold her close and pray that we are wrong about the tumor. She is my baby, and I will do whatever is right for her.

No apologies, sweet Paula .... we more than understand.

Storming the heavens with prayers for your sweet Skeeter. And hoping, like you and Cindy that y'all are wrong about the tumor.

Continuing to ask my Angel Bandit to surround y'all with help. Paula, please give her gentle hugs and kisses from me. Bandit Baby, you work with AJ now - keep her calm and see if maybe we can turn this diagnosis around. Let's boost her appetite and bring this girl some strength.

We're ALL sending LOTS and LOTS of LOVE, PRAYERS, and POSITIVE THOUGHTS for healing !!!!!!!!

Praying you have many many more beautiful days ahead with your Skeeter girl. Sending LOTS of special cuddles and kisses to the Pride and LOTS of BIG SPECIAL ((((((((((Paula)))))))))) for you. I love you ALL so very much.

Positive signs 2 and 3: She is back to sitting on her favorite perch by the office window (she wouldn't attempt to climb before) and she has decided she can/will scold the little brothers when they get to playing too rough.

I'm still hopeful the combination of a very old Rx and a relatively new Rx has reduced the critical mass of the growth and are in the process of beating the H* out of it. And, the prayers storming the heavens are leading the charge. Keep them coming, please.

How is Ms. Skeeter doing ?? I'm continuing to storm the heavens for her -- and for you and The Pride, especially in the horrible heat wave y'all are going through.

The weather has been just terrible -- flooding in Duluth, zoo animals drowning :((; the horrible heat wave y'all are experiencing in the north east; fires in Colorado; we've been having fires right around where I am -- it's nerve wracking.

Sending very cool, calm and healing thoughts with much love and prayers for Skeeter, The Pride and you !!! :wub::heart::wub:

AJ and Bandit Baby - you two keep on working with her ... give her that encouragement to eat her Fancy Feast (and take her meds)....it's not her time to be with you.

Paula, please give Skeeter LOTS of special kisses and scritches, and to all of The Pride and very special ((((((((((Paula)))))))))). I love you.

Sending ALL of our LOVE,

NOW,
