Roxie Update

Hello all! Roxie here. I am doing much better now. Mom hasn't talked to the vet about the results of the blood test or the urine test but we haven't had any accidents except where she petted me too much early this morning on the way to the back yard ... and I can hardly be responsible for that! I have been taking my antibiotics twice a day so, if I had an infection, it should be about gone. If I could find my antibiotics, I wouldn't be taking them but I can't figure out where Mom is hiding them. I'm eating my breakfast or dinner and all of the sudden I bite into something that doesn't taste very good but it is too late. I've checked my kibble very carefully but I can't smell anything out of the ordinary in there. One of these days I'm going to figure it out and it won't be so easy for Mom to fool me!

Yesterday we had so much fun! We went to Mona's barkday party! Her mommy had a special barkday cake for us doggies. She also had lots of interesting people food and we got to eat a little bit of it. Mom doesn't usually let us have people food but she said it was a special day so we could have some small bites.

Mom forgot to take her camera so we don't have any pictures of the party. Mona should have some on her blog sometime this week though.

It was all rainy and wet so the grass was great for walking through and then jumping into Mom's lap. Mona's mommy said she would give Mom a towel to dry us off but Mom must like it when we are all wet because she never did dry us off. We took our Aunt Bec and cousin Jake with us because they were invited too. Maggie was invited but she likes to stay home and not mix with a lot of doggies she doesn't know. She probably could have gone because Mona and Harley (a mini dachsie girl) were the only other doggies at the party. Since the weather was bad, lots of people didn't make it to the party ... so there was more for US!! It turns out that Mona is getting to have a second party today. Hmmm ... we wonder if we could talk Mom into taking us to that party too ...

Anyway, Mona and her mommy throw a great party. We had barkday cake made out of ground beef with mashed potato icing. We each got a toy and a doggie bag of treats to take home. We took Mona a loofa dog toy that is green and longer than she is. It has a squeaky in it because she likes squeakies! She got some other presents too but we want to let her tell you about them. Drop by her blog and find out what Harley gave her and any new presents from her second party!

We've got some other REALLY BIG NEWS to share but Mom says that is enough for this entry. So this is the "cliffhanger" (like on TV shows) so you will come back to find out more!!!

(We apologize if there are any typos; Blogger is not checking spelling right now.)

Mona's barkday pawty sounds like a blast!!! Too bad your Mom forgot her camera. What's the BIG NEWS?? As a regular reader, I think I have every right to know. :P

I'm glad you're doing better, and I can't wait to hear the surprise!

Oh I am so glad you are doing better. I urge you to get an x-ray and check for crystals and stones in her bladder. This is exaclty what happened to my sister Holly. The stones and larger crystals showed up on x-ray and were what were causing the infection because they irritated her bladder. Mom has to switch her to a special Science Diet dog food (that she said was yummy) and it took care of it.

I can't wait to read the cliffhanger. And wow ... a party?

Good to hear from you Roxie. Glad you are doing better.

Wowsers--what a barkday cake THAT was. My birthday is April 28...we will have to make sure our mom reads about this ground beef and mashed potatoe barkday cake. Sounds very yummy!

Take care and will be checking back for your really big news!

Hiya Roxie

Pleased you are feeling better,

I have told mistress to type up my posts beforehand and then do a spellcheck, and copy and paste to blogger.

Of course she always insists on adding something at the last minute, but at least it is a start.

Can't wait for your news. Hurry up.
