Molly McWondering.

  3. Guess what? I AM THREE YEARS OLD now!! It happened yesserday. Mama almost forgot! She remembered, and den jumped up to get a stupid hat out of da closet and den she bribed me wif someting called BURPDOG biscuits to wear da hat and lay still. I gibbed it sum taught, and decided dat dose burpydogs were just too good to pass up! Molly McThree P.S. It was in da 60's here yesserday. Mama wore shorts to work! She also wore sumting called a card-i-gan cause it was World Kindness Day and dey were tinking about Mr. Rogers. We ain't no cold weather wimps here in Ore-Land-O!
  4. Free Kittens Merc? Like dey gibs you a party favor of a kitten to take home? I tink I mite like dat! I could use a friend to hang wif! Yesserday da Vet tried to gib Mama a Greyhound as an extra gift when she picked up da prize basket I won in da Halloween photo contest! He comed out to talk to her and said dat I might like a friend! Mama asked him if he had met me??? LOL!! She told him dat I was gunna be an only child for da forseeable future! Sumting about me being more work den FOUR GREYHOUNDS AND DA FOSTERS all combined! Molly McWishedshehadakittenofherveryown!
  5. Ivy dat must hab been reel scary for your Mama. MY Mama says dat once when she was about 20, HER Mama choked on da mashed potatoes at Tanksgibbing dinner. Ebberybuddy was just sitting der watching her choke saying "Somebody do sumting!" So Mama did. She had had first aid training when she worked at a summer camp, so she gots up and did dat Hymn-licking ting on her Mom. Dat piece of 'not mashed good enough' potato came flying out of her Mama's mouth and den she threwed up all ober da table! Ebberyone was ever so relived dat she was ok and didn't die rite der in da middle of dinner! Afterwards, she realized dat Mama had broken one of her ribs with her thrusting. Dat's ok dough, better a broken rib den being dead! Molly McStoryteller.
  6. What are dese tings called "Leaves" dat turn pretty colors and fall to da grass? I don't tink we hab dem here at ma house. We gots lots of trees wif long swaying branches of green stuff dat blow in da wind - but da green stuff don't turn any color, and dey don't fall off. Tings are pretty normal around ma house. Our giant pumpkin shrunk! He just gots shorter and shorter each day! And his nice smile became a really scary face! Da trash man threwed him in da big truck yesserday. Molly McPoodle.
  7. Elizabeth I am so sorry for your loss. Losing your Mom is such a painful thing - no matter how old you are or how long they were blessed to be on earth. I am sure that your Mom is looking down on you and giving thanks for having had such a wonderful daughter. Carol Ann.
  8. Da kids at school liked ma Mama's costume a lot! She said dat it wasn't too hot. She is putting it back on again to go over to ma skin brudder's house and hand out der Halloween candy cause dey are gunna be taking Lilly and Olivia out for trick or treating. Here is a photo of da kidlets last night at Lilly's school for Trunk or Treat! Molly Mcpoodle.
  9. Happy Halloween ebberbuddy! As promised, here is a picture of ma Mama dressed up today as Minnie Mouse! She is gunna be sweating like a pig, as our temps are gunna reach almost 90 degrees today.If you hear about a lady in Florida dat melted in da heat, it might be Mama! Lub, Molly McPoodle.
  10. I'm so sorry to hear this Elizabeth. Prayers for you and your Mother. Carol Ann.
  11. Affiliated Veterinary Specialists - or AVS - are wonderful! This is where GPA-GO has all their complicated ortho cases handled. They also use University Animal Hospital for the more simple ones. Dr. Privitte at University Animal is our own personal vet and we just love him. On a personal note, the specialists at AVS were able to keep our girl Lady alive for almost 3 years after a devastating diagnosis of PLE. I cannot praise them enough.
  12. Well, another year has gone by .... but we still smile when we think of Specky! She truly was a 'one of a kind' girl! Her enthusiasm for life was contagious, and she gave her all in everything she did. Unfortunately, that included her efforts to dismantle poor Santa way back in 2005. He started out as a simple ornament, living quietly on the Christmas tree, minding his own business. Ok, maybe not quite 'minding his own business' as he does have that pesky 'naughty and nice list', and now sends elves to people's homes to spy and report back to him! Perhaps that was why Specky decided that Santa needed to die! I'm guessing that she was on the naughty list! At any rate, I found poor Santa's body parts, and reassembled him as best I could! To this day, Santa comes out every Christmas to once again adorn our tree. Each time, we reflect on our special girl Specky, and relive just a wee bit of the joy she brought us. Specky and Santa on our tree 2018. Santa after the unfortunate incident 2005. Santa after my attempts at reconstruction. Obviously I went to one of those 'off shore' medical schools! So once again I ask you all to remember our sweet girl Specky by throwing caution to the wind. Throw a toy in the air! Make a snow angel. Or a snowball! Have fun and remember that life is short and regrets will get you no where. Live your life like Specky lived hers - always on full throttle and at 100% fun! Love to All, Carol Ann, Dan and Molly McPoodle.
  13. Some of you might remember my original post regarding the unfortunate accident that Santa had at our house back in 2005. This was our first Christmas with Greyhounds, and at that point we only had Gizzy (aka Miss Perfect) and Specky (aka Gets In Trouble!) That was the year that Specky chewed a Santa ornament into scraps! I gathered them up, photographed the evidence, and then glued poor Santa back together as best as I could. The end results suggest that Santa did not make a wise choice on the healthcare exchange! Well, Santa is still alive and sort of well and on our tree again this year. 2016 Update - Santa is still hanging on our tree in a place of honor. This year his presence is even more special since we last both Gizzy and Riley Roo less than three months apart. So to honor Specky, Gizzy, Riley Roo and all the hounds that are not here to spend the holidays with us, please have fun. Pounce! Throw a toy in the air! Play bow! Life does not give you any Mulligans so make the most of every single day. If you are having a bad day, look at your hound and take inspiration from them! They know how to have fun!! 2017 Update - Once again, Santa, in his state of disrepair, has made his way to grace our Christmas tree. Life has changed at our house since last Christmas. We lost our fourth Greyhound Lady, earlier this year. Three lost in eight months - that was hard on our hearts. So, to change things up, we got ourselves a Standard Poodle Puppy last spring! Molly is one year old now, and still 100% crazy puppy. Today we put the tree up and started decorating. Trust me when I say that Molly has her eye on quite a few of the ornaments to claim as her own! We think she might be 'channeling' Specky! To keep poor Santa safe - after all, the poor guy went through the wringer when Specky got a hold of him - we placed him high up on the tree in a place of safety and honor. While losing so many so close together was heartbreaking, I still looked at the Santa ornament today and had a good laugh. Specky you were one of a kind! For those of you who did not get the chance to 'meet' Specky, here is a small taste of what her beautiful spirit was like. Crazy!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zviQY3WGC4 Pre-Surgery 2005 Photo Post Surgery 2005 Photo - Santa should have sued for malpractice or at the very least operating without a medical license! Today 2017 - in his place of honor (and out of reach of Molly's teeth!) Please, as you start your Holiday Season, enjoy every moment. Don't sweat the small stuff - will it 'really' matter six months from now if you get everything perfect? Approach life like Specky did - with all your heart and soul. Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season.
  14. Oh my. Lucy, you and Momo are in my thoughts and prayers. You are both very brave. Hugs, Carol Ann.
  15. If we had not had Lady on the high dose of Prednisone those first few months, she never would have survived. The pred saved her life. Yes, there were ugly side effects, but we learned to deal with those, and with time and her dose being lowered, they were manageable. When she had diarrhea we used Tyloson Powder. The key to managing this disease is consistency in diet. Do your best to pick a plan and stick with it. Jumping all over the place with different approaches is not a good idea. If it were my dog, I would get the endoscopy and biopsies done. You will never have a correct treatment plan if you don't know for sure what you are treating. Good luck.
