More Awards! More About Roxie

A long, long time ago, we got some awards. We have already put them on our blog but we never acknowledged who gave them to us. We do apologize for the delay.

From Crikit, Sparky and Ginger of Barking Loud, we got this lovely bouquet!



They were also handing out this award and we liked it so much we took it too.



We are so late to the game, we think everyone has these awards. But just in case, we want to give them to Mona and the Mommy because they are our good friends in real life!

And now Mom will take over to tell you about Roxie.

Roxie seems to be doing much better but, after consulting with the vet, she is getting an x-ray of her bladder Thursday. Since most dogs will not lay still for this kind of thing, sedation is involved. Copper has been very worried that Roxie might have grit/crystals/stones in her bladder and has urged that we get an x-ray. I think his insistence made it easier for me to make this decision so ... Thank you, Copper (and your mom)! Her blood test came out normal so we don't have to worry about diabetes. Her urine test showed some blood but the vet said that was to be expected with an infection. I don't rule out that she was angry with me when she first peed on me but I am glad that I've taken her to her doctor because something was not right. Hopefully the x-ray will be clear and it will only have been an infection. I don't know what they do if they find grit/crystals/stones in the bladder.

THANK YOU for visiting my blog! It's so nice to meet you! Congratulations on all your awards! I hope everything turns out OK for Roxie! My mom said to tell your mom to move to Fresno. There's a shortage of accountants here. My mom has been trying to fill a Controller position for almost 4 months now. She'd hire your mom in a heartbeat!

Pssst--Sammy and Andy...c'mere.

We learned this from our mom. When she has to have tests and can't eat breakfast, our dad lets her sleep in and wakes her up when it's time to go out the door for her tests so by the time she wakes up good, the test is over and she can eat.

Maybe that would work for Roxie.

In solidarity to Roxie, we're not gonna eat our breakfasts until tomorrow evening. Maybe you shouldn't eat til Roxie gets back either. Just sayin'.

In solidarity, Shania and Macon

I hope Roxie's tests come back with good news! It's no fun being sick! You have to go to the vet an they poke you and then they tell your Mom to give you pills and do other stuff. No fun at all!!
Good luck with your tests and I hope you feel better soon!

My sister Holly started with an infection too, blood in her urine too. I am hoping that is all it is, but I am glad you are getting more tests. I just know Roxie loves you too much to have that pee on mom thing all of a sudden.
