When I started reading the last couple of posts, I felt so bad that I wasn't here to cheer the boys on before they fell off the train... but then I saw they're both back on!!! HOORAYY!!! Maybe they just wanted to get started together so they could be side by side.  I'm so happy they're back on.

The storms have pretty constant here too.  We've had some beautiful weather during the morning and early afternoon, and then late afternoon into evening we get hit.  Thing is... around here the storms go by pretty quickly but the rains continue for a good little while. It's suppose to be hot and humid and storms again today and tomorrow and then a 40% chance on Sunday... guess we know what Sunday will really be like.

I'm glad Tuck's eye is better.  Maybe it was caused by an allergy.  Hope it doesn't act up again.

I was picturing Tuck jump up on you with his arms around your neck and legs around your waist. I had to chuckle visualizing that sight. You did the right thing talking to him calmly and putting him down.. but what a cute picture it must have been.

I haven't posted on Mike's blog yet today, but he's doing ok.. not great, but ok.  Last night was questionable as he started whining and panting again like he does when he has an upset stomach, so I sat on the floor with him for a while and calmed him a bit. Thankfully, it seemed to help.

Little Miss Gidget is pulling her stunts again. The past two days she's decided she doesn't have to bark to go out and has created small lakes in the laundry room AND the kitchen.  I don't know what this is all about, but she's GOT to stop it.

I've gotta go take care of the pups... I'll check on everyone and post on Mike's blog a little later.
Have a great day. Hope the storms stay away.

Love & Blessings

I know how terrific our storms have been here, so I was hoping against hope that they would miss you.  We have been dry now for two days, so hope you are the same.  When my dogs hear thunder (except for fearless jack) I open the basement door, turn on the fan and they all curl up and watch Animal Planet till it passes.  It is amazingly sound proof down there and I covered the window well with cardboard so no lightning flashed in.  Sometimes they don't come up even when the storm is over.

Gkad ti see them back on track.  Hey Cindy, are you feeling all right?  

Love and big Husky hugs,
Debbie and jack

Not much time again--storms. I have been gone today then we had company. FINALLY when I can get on...the thunder starts!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The boys so far are OK. Tuck has acted stressed all day, so I hope storms don't send him over the edge.
Justice is doing well.

Hi Joanna and Debbie, tell Mike I want him to not just do good--but great!!! I can't wait to have time to see Jack's pics. I hate not getting around to everyone.
Plus my puter is still dying-thankfully it's a slow death. LOL.
I hope to get my bro's Mac on Sunday if we can meet up.

Ohhh crap-thunder close.
thanks angels!

Checking in on the boys.  Things have been so hectic here lately.  Never seems to end.   Andee got his "well visit" and vaccines today (yay!), you don't know how good it feels to go in for a "well visit" - Andee was well behaved, he provided a stool sample on the floor for easy lab testing, did get onto the scale with only a little coaxing and gave the vet tech the snarly face as soon as he saw the muzzle.  Bella came alson with us, she was so helpful and picked up all the nail clippings and threw them in the trash.  Although she was gagging when Andee made his deposit, I just told her that Andee doesn't do that when she poops - and she stopped!  Bella was such a good girl at the vets, she greeted everyone at the door - met a darling little Bijon mix named "Q-tip" - was he the cutest!!!

We too have been having T stroms almost everyday - it makes Andee nervous enough to make him think it's time for a walk!  Never fails, the second it starts pouring, Andee decides he needs a walk, course he doesn't mind getting soaked.

I hope Tuckie's eye is doing better.  Andee hate's anything done around his eye, I don't know if he'd ever let me put drops in his eye, I am so proud of Tuckie for being such a good boy.  I hope Justice's tummy is feeling better.

Stay on those parallell tracks boys!  Sending hugs to both of them!!!

Awww Cindy, I can just see Tuck wrapped around you, how sweet, but you did the right thing. I wish my mom would do that with her dog, she is petrified of them and its because Mom coddles her and also Mom is petrified of them too. That really doesn't help.

I'm so glad both boys got back on the train though. I hope they stay on it and its so great they are side by side. We are supposed to get storms here today too, the ground is so saturated we don't need anymore rain. The dog pen is mud, it doesn't get enough sunshine to dry it out, but even then the back yard is mud too and it gets sunshine. We've been getting storms passing thru and then the sun comes out and then later on another one. Its supposed to be 85 and humid today so the air will be back on, not good for my sinuses but at least it will be cool.

I was wondering too if Tuck could have an allergy in his eye. I've been squinting too and it feel like something is stuck in there and I know they are just irritated from allergies. Hope he has no more problems with them. It is really annoying when your eyes are irritated, tell Tuckie I understand how he feels.

I've got the pictures of Jack, I'll email them to you so you can see. Hope you get that Mac Sunday. Not having a computer stinks

Love and hugs to you and the boys

Hi everyone, we are having the same ole same ole--storms. We had a pop up storm a little earlier, but the bigger storm is coming soon.

Well I guess the boys wanted to be together again--Justice fell off abt 10pm and Tuck followed abt 11pm--both had CP's-so at least not GM's.
I truly hope this next round of storms is the last for awhile.

Hi Linda, LOL. What a vet visit u had! I understand totally abt going in for a "well" visit. I'm sure with Andee's tummy problems and hospitalizations that u are there too often for "sick" visits.
How helpful that Andee obliged with a fresh stool specimen. It's too funny what u said to Bella--and she stopped gagging! Unbelievable!
I've really missed u, but I know u have been really really busy.
I home u are feeling back to normal now?
Hugs to u, Andee and Bella bee

Hi Debs, I have always been very frightened of storms since I was a child--my mom was too. With the boys I try my best to at least fake not being afraid, and I have found over the years that faking it, is actually helping me to start really not being so scared. I don't ever want the boys to have a seizure becuz I am afraid.
It's been hard getting to where I am, esp becuz of a tornado that passed thru our yard while I was abt 12yo. I was standing looking out the back large "picture window" when I heard exactly what others have said-a train. My dad was suddenly yelling at me to get down--but u know that human part of us that says "why?" instead of just doing it. Suddenly he was pulling me away from the window, but I saw this huge black whirling thing, and the nosie was deafening. Luckily it only destroyed some of the patio and garage in our yard, and some trees-but did some major damage as it went into our back yard and on to our neighbors in the back.
Everyone here will hear sirens for a tornado warning, but want to stay up until they think it's really coming our way. I just want to get the puppers downstairs-quickly!
Tuck's eye seems fine now-thank goodness. I can't believe something happened that we didn't need a specialist for!!!!
Try to get some rest!!!!!!!!!!!
I got ur email and pics of Debbie's Jack. Poor munchkin--but in the end, it will all be worth it for sweet Jack.
Hugs to u and the kids.

Here comes the thunder again...

Thanks angels!

Oh wow Cindy, I can understand that human nature. That must have scared the crap out of you. I could though imagine myself doing the same thing. I wish my Mom would try to fake it for Abby but she won't, she's got it in her head that she is too old to change so there is nothing I can do. I've tried. And yep I can imagine faking it would help you with your fear. I'm actually trying that with snakes and along with medication its helping me.

I'm so sorry the boys fell off the train, but happy there were no GM. I hope the storms quit soon, it gets very tiring having it storming all the time. We are supposed to get some tonight. They went all around us today.

Love and hugs to you and the boys, I hope its a quiet night

It's late and I am wiped out. But before anything changes, I just had to do this--

Tucker is at ONE DAY!!!

===================T 1icecream.gif  turtle.gif ===================

Justice is at ONE DAY!!!

===================J 1icecream.gif  turtle.gif ===================


The boys are sound asleep right now. They are all curled up in their little beds beside me. Justice has a paw on my leg and part of his head on my pillow. They both look so cute.

Hi Deb, it's a shame ur mom won't at least try to fake that she isn't scared of storms. I talk a lot to the boys, and make sure I do it in a matter of fact voice. Sometimes in the beginning I think I could have won an Academy Award for my acting! LOL
It is amazng though that u really start being less scared while u fake it. LOL.
Justie says he will help u with ur fear of snakes--he will grab them for u, and he says that when he holds a snake in the middle and he looks like Fu Man Chu--it will make u laugh. I told him it doesn't make me laugh!! He said it's worth a try...
hugs!


I am making a trip to Columbus tmw, hopefully to get the Mac from my bro, and also to see my mom. So I won't be back under very late afternoon. Then...storms are forecast (of course!)-so I will get back on when I can.

Thanks so much angels!!

P.S. Big hugs to all our friends-2 and 4 legged. We miss checking on u guys-but all of u continue to be in my heart.
Angels, please can u help sponsor Cole?? He needs $38/month and he will be fully sponsored. Please help Leah and Cole!

Cindy,

I am just checking in having had a busy week.  I feel so bad things have been so difficult this past week, boy mother nature appears to be kicking OH butt.  I will have to have a talk with her LOL.  I feel guilty living where I am having never had to experience such hard weather.

All I can say is I am going to try to send good dry weather your way.  In the meantime just snuggle up with the boys and a book, candle light if needed and try to make the best of it.  I wish I could sound proof your home to help the pups, the poor babies must really hate it.

Love to you all and please please, I know you don't speak about your own needs but take care of yourself.  

Love,

Leah and Cole (he is doing great)

Hope those storms disappear.  I know you all have been getting it.  It must be north or south of us because we have been dry for the last couple of days.  I am hoping a straight wind from the west will send you our dry weather.  

give those good boys hugs.

Love and big Husky hugs,

We had rain and some minor storms, but they seem to have passed for now. Supposedly tmw is the last day with storms for a day or two.

The boys are doing fine. They are on the way to 2 days each later tonight.

I won't have a computer at all for a few days, but can grab someone's puter for a few minutes.

Hi Leah, I am so glad Cole is doing fine. I did check his thread (in fact most threads I have been missing) last night-just no time to post.
I sure wouldn't mind some of ur weather now and again. LOL. We certainly are getting our OH butts kicked for over a week now.
I hope YOU are taking care of urself too!!!! Hugs to u and cole

Maybe that straight wind from the west debbie is what will finally give us relief on Tuesday!!! Glad it is missing u, Jack and the horses!!!
I hope Jack is doing well today. I was thinking abt him earlier.
hugs to u both!!

Thanks so much angels!!!!

Yahoo 2 days each. I hope the storms are gone for a while. Now to just get thru fireworks. I'm sorry I'm brain dead are the boys afraid of fireworks? My two don't like them but don't panic if they go off, just get up and look and bark a few times and I do what you do talk to them in a calm matter of fact voice and sometimes I even get up to look at what ever they think they are seeing and it helps them somehow.

Hope you get that computer sorted soon. And thanks to the person that is letting you borrow theirs to keep us updated, they are very special. Can't go without or Justice and Tucker fixes for too long.

Tell Justice thanks for the idea but I think it would be best if he picked the snake up an trotted off in the other direction. Although if its a baby its not too bad but those big ones (shudder ohmy.gif )

Love and hugs to you and the boys.

The boys didn't have any seizure activity during the night, although Tuck was restless most of the night.
Then around noon Tuckie started having CP's--lots of them. It seemed like during the noon news Tuckie was the big story. Someone would say-"look at Tuck" or "he's doing it again."  He finally stopped after some butt meds.
He is sleeping against me now.

Justice has spent quite a bit of time outside. He is wearing a muzzle right now becuz when he threw up a few days ago--yup loads of Japanese Beetles in it. David went out and looked in the yard, and said there are literally hundreds at several places in the yard, and all the dogs are going after them. I kinda doubt Tuck is though-he isn't a bug eater-but the rest are.
But even with the muzzle on, Justice has spent much of`the day outside. I check on him often, and he is just a busy boy keeping on the move checking out the yard.

Hi Deb, well the boys have never been worried abt fireworks, but we always have the windows closed and the TV and AC on. No one close by sets off caps, etc like would happen in Columbus when we lived there. This year though with so many severe storms in the past 9 days, they have shown fear with the storms. So fireworks now--well I hope they won't be a problem!! I doubt I go to fireworks this year, so I can be home to turn up the TV or do whatever is needed to make them more secure.
Of course thunderstorms are back in the forecast Thurs and friday this week. <sigh>
I borrow Carol's puter when I can, although she is on hers a lot lately in between storms.
Well Tuck is on the move--gotta see where he is going-he is a bit tipsy from the valium.
hugs to the kids!!

Thanks so much angels!!

Justice is the only one on the train.

===============J icecream3.gif  turtle.gif ================

Tuckie hasn't had any more seizure activity since near 1PM today. He is sleeping on the recliner in my bedroom with me. Justice is wiped out and down on the couch.

Justice and I are heading to Columbus in the AM. He has a derm appt at MedVet-so we'll be gone all day.
Finally a day of driving with no rain!!

I will check back in tmw eve.

Thanks so very much angels.

**edit to add--as soon as I hit send--Tuck started having more CP's. He has butt meds onboard now.
I'll update tmw eve. night

EWWEEEE Japanese Beetles... eeeyuckie!!! I know they're a delicacy someplace in the world, but I don't think homegrown beetles are the highest quality to choose from. Oh Justie.. you just have to maintain a more delicate palate.  cool.gif

Hopefully, Tucker won't stay at the station too long.  Maybe he just needed to get his train-legs situated and will be back on soon.  By the way... Tuck.. have any valium you'd like to share with Auntie Jo?  I could use it sometimes when cousin Gidget gets going.  rolleyes.gif

I'm with you, Cindy. It feels so great to have two days forecast without rain or storms. They're suppose to start up again on Thursday... like I've said before (someplace) I wish Mother Nature would save some of this rain for August when we need it.  I think we've all had about enough.

Gidget is actually doing pretty well lately.. (I'm whispering that so she doesn't hear me)... she's actually doing what she's "suppose" to do "where" she's suppose to do it the last few days... and she's becoming a bit more mellow too (which causes me to believe there might be hope for her yet)  laugh.gif  She really can be a sweetheart (when she wants to)... other times, she's the toughest tom-boy you've ever seen.  I just love her so much wub.gif ... even though sometimes it's hard to like her.  mad.gif

I'm not sure how Mike's doing.  I left a message for Dr. Blaha to call me when she gets home.  His appetite is good, and he's acting good... but... (there's always a "but") in the early evening and on thru the night, he's started panting a lot, and when he's sleeping at night his respiration quickens... alot.  Debbie suggested it might be pain, and I'm thinking she's right. The reason I'm believing that is that after giving him a Tramadol (and it kicks in), he seems much better and is able to sleep without interruption.  Without it, he tries to sleep but then jerks awake and sits up and pants really hard. My poor boy... I hate seeing him like that. I didn't want to call the vet, because I'm afraid he's going to have to remain on pain pills, and I don't want to load his system up with that crap... but if I have to, I guess I have to.

Anyway... other than that, everything is pretty good around here. I still haven't started work yet, but I'll talk to her about that when she calls later too.  Give the kids some hugs and belly rubs for me.

Love Ya

Hi everyone,

Sorry this is so late. It was a very long day for both me and Justice.
The derm vet is having me give Tavist for a couple weeks to Justice to see if his itching improves. I read a post at a site that evaluates dog food (I don't remember the name), but someone mentioned the food Justice is on has some fish in it as the EFA's or something (sorry I am really tired). So I need to call the company tmw to see if that's true. We *think* he is itching from the high pollen level with grasses-but the allergist said she will be angry if it has fish and not labeled, since she recommends the food often.

Tuck is doing pretty well.

Tuck is at ONE DAY!!!

=============T turtle.gif 1icecream.gif =============


Justice is at FOUR DAY'S!!!

============J turtle.gif icecream4.gif =============


Well guys I have my bro's Mac. The screen is only 13"!!! But beggars...
I know I will get used to it, and from what everyone says I will love it.
My major problem??  Well my ISP has been MSN for years. I found I can get online thru MSN's hotmail, and I can READ my emails--but not respond. How dumb is that????
***edit to add-I don't know why the msn tech said I can't do anything but read--I CAN reply from hotmail on the web--so I can use my msn addy!

So he got me a Mac addy. I think u can use 5 addy's when u get some program he has-so I have one of those.
I would like to use my gmail-but so far am clueless. So, those that send me emails--I will read them, but will reply with a new addy.
I wish MSN and Apple would play nice with each other!!

Hi Joanna, I hope the forecast changes...although maybe with rain/storms there will be less fireworks. This is the first year someone is setting off fireworks and caps. The boys almost jumped out of their skin tonight-so did I. It was quite unexpected.
I read abt Mike and Gidget yesterday I think. It does seem like the pain meds are helping with the panting. May be coincidence or not. I will be anxious to hear what the doc says.
I hope the fireworks don't bother them too much.
I hope Gidge keeps improving, and Mike too.
hugs to the 3 of u.

Thanks so much angels!!


***edit--Tuck fell off the train with some CP's abt 11PM...
He has been restless and "off"--that's why it's nearly 3AM and I am here. He fell asleep a short time ago-so I am gonna try to join him.
night.

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to quickly let u know how the boys are doing.
Justice hopefully will be at 5 days later. He was outside quite a bit early this AM, before the heat kicked in.
Tucker had the CP's during the night, and is def not himself today. Both of us are in "sick bay" today, and nursemaiding each other.

Hi Joanna, well maybe tmw Tuck will hop back on. I wish storms were not forecast tmw thru Saturday. But maybe they will stop some people from setting off fireworks in their yards.
I still can not believe that Ohio sells fireworks, and u must sign something saying u will not set them off in OH since it's illegal-u must take them out of state to use them. Yea right! What, they think that many Ohioans will be making a mass exodus to Indiana or something so they can set off their fireworks??? How dumb is that!
Only community one's are legal-and there are plenty of fireworks there.
I just hate how they scare pets...
I hope the kids are having a good day!
hugs to all of u.

Thanks so much angels!

Cindy , I hear thunder off in the distance and thought oh gosh not again. I hope the boys hang in there for you.  My daughter is letting Sydney out now before locking her up because she'll flip :(  
Are fireworks really illegal in all of the state of Ohio ? ? ? I think it's only certain counties?

Thunder is nearing.
Tuck has had CP's this eve-still not feeling well.
So far Justie is OK.
I just looked at the radar--it looks like Syd will be getting the worse of it (and all our northern friends) before us-then we will get slammed too. Came much earlier then they expected.
Michelle I am thinking of u guys. Tell Syd that Tuck and Justice say this is no big deal, and it will be fine. Well they try to think that way!
I am soooo thankful ur daughter is out of the hospital--what a scary thing for u both. I am so sorry u are having to deal with so many things Michelle. U guys are in my thoughts and prayers every day.
Big hugs.

OK, ohhh radar does not look good. I better get off-thunder and the winds are picking up like crazy.

Thanks so much angels!!!!

P.S. Michelle, we were just talking abt the fireworks-and everyone here thinks it's all counties in OH. But u may be right-it would make more sense!

I have to run because the storm is kicking up ... but you are right. MOST types of fireworks (other than sparklers and small novelty )  are completely illegal here. I guess they aren't very strict about it though. I've never seen anyone get in trouble around me !

Hi Cindy, I'm sorry I've been awol. I'm almost caught up at work so I can feel normal when I come  in here. I'm so sorry Tuckie is having a rough time. I hope the fireworks don't upset him too much. And I hope Justice is still on the train.

Fire works are illegal here too, both possessing and buying or selling. So people go to PA and buy them and bring them back. I'm supposed to go to a friends house Friday night for a bonfire and I'm debating as I don't know if anyones going to be letting them off and if I go the boys have to be outside in the pen. They have been doing really good on the Fear Less that Rosi gave me with all those storms we've had, and last night was our community fireworks and I didn't even here a boom at all so I don't know if they even let them off. I'll have to check the local paper, they usually have an article.

Boys are doing good, Jake is really settling down, sometimes i want to ask him what he did with the other Jake and then the other Jake appears and wreaks havoc. I think my dog has a dual personality. He has now taken to chasing the birds away from the bird feeder. If they are on the feeder they are okay but I have a few that get on the ground and he launches himself from the steps and runs right out there with a bark and off they fly. Oh and he goes nuts if there is a robin in the driveway. I just don't understand it.  Riley is fantastic. He's being so good.

Last night Riley was outside and Jake was asleep by my feet and two deer walked thru the yard. I saw them but didn't dare move or Jake would wake up and go nuts. They were just slowly walking thru. Neither one heard them or even smelled them.

Hugs to you and the boys and I hope you have a wonderful weekend and the boys get back and stay on the train.

Love and Hugs

Tuckie had some CP's last night and then a GM.
He seems better today then yesterday, thank goodness. He was "off" all day yesterday-maybe it was preictal for the GM.
I just hope he is finished with the seizures for awhile.

Justice is doing fine. I forgot to tell u all that I called Natural Balance and the allergy formula Justice is on does NOT have fish. phew. He has been on it since May and hasn't had any major GI upsets-so maybe food allergy was part of Justie's issue.
Oh, I have probably mentioned this before-but it bears repeating. LOL. When the dermatologist came in the room with Justice, she leaned slightly forward on the table and said 'I had forgotten how stinkin' cute Justice is!" LOL.
He is stinkin' cute, that's for sure!!

It is pouring rain here. The boys are beside me napping. Justice is snoring.

Hi Michelle, I have never heard anyone around here in trouble for fireworks. I don't know if police just don't enforce it-or wait to get calls, and then they will enforce it.
I hope the storms weren't too bad last night for Syd. There has been thunder in the distance here again. <sigh>
Today and tmw Syd--then maybe Sat will be OK...I hope!
Hugs!

Hi Deb, That is a tough call since u would need to leave the boys outside. If they get upset could they jump or knock over a fence?
I decided I will stay home this year. It's Tuck's first fireworks post stroke, and he sure reacted a few days ago when some dippy people were setting off firecrackers and caps.
I hope work will finally start calming down for u!!
Jake is funny abt the birds-sounds like Justice.
I wish the thunder would just stop!!!
hugs to u guys.

Thanks so much angels!!

Just a note before we go to bed.

Tuck has been so much better today. About 10:15pm though he was acting  sound sensitive. He may actually be hearing things I can't hear. Then he started pacing. He has calmed down a little now. The windows are open and maybe someone is setting off some firecrackers far away, and it has upset him.

Justice is sleeping beside me.

Justie is at FIVE DAY'S!!!

Oh no Cindy, I hope Tuckie is doing better now. And well done Justice for 5 days. Your not going to let a few fireworks upset you are ya. Now just get Tuckie to realize they aren't bad at all, and help him get back on the train with ya.

I went to that party last night but didn't stay long. After 2 1/2 hours and all the fireworks going off around us I just couldn't stand it anymore so I excused myself and left about 10. I got home and you could hear distant booms but nothing too close and both boys were fine. I'm only a mile away at the party I'm going to tonight so I don't worry too much about going. Its being further away that I hate.

I hope there are no more storms and the weather is as bright and sunny as it is here. Yesterday and today have been beautiful. I got my lawn mowed (didn't see any snakes thank god) and decided it would be a good time to work a little more on my tan so I don't look so dead. It was hot sitting in the sun and after about 45 mins I just couldn't stand it anymore, so we are all basking in the cool air from the fans until the sun gets on the other side of the house.

Love and hugs to the boys, hoping you are having a great weekend.
