Special Delivery!





We were so excited Friday afternoon! We got a package in the mail from our budz Waylon and Willie! Just look at all the cool stuff in that box! We just love our new stuffies. Well, in all honesty we have loved the Santa stuffie a little too much but that other stuffie is still "hanging in there". We have had the bestest time hiding and finding the Milk Bones too! Do you see that little figurine? It looks just like a little tiny one of us! Our Mom said that the Trail Mix was awesome too. She wouldn't share with us so we told her she couldn't have any of our Milk Bones either! Thanks again Waylon and Willie! You and your family are the bestest!

O' Tannenbaum




Mom finally got around to putting up our Christmas tree tonight. She and our youngest furless brother hung all the ornaments and I supervised while Ozzie enjoyed a long winter's nap. They decorated the tree with the "old" ornaments this year instead of the standard Hallmark collection. Our youngest furless brother insists he likes it this way so much better. Most of these old ornaments were from our Mom's Aunt's collection. We don't really care too much about all that though. We are just ready for Santa Paws to come and bring us stuff!

Thanksgiving





We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Lots of company and lots of good food. We pretty much stayed out from underfoot, though. Ozzie pulled a muscle the day before and was feeling under the weather and I had a bout with seizures earlier in the week. Mom said the only good thing about us not feeling up to par was that we did not get over exuberant with the older guests. They all have thin skin (ie, Grandpa, Grandma) and we tend to leave "marks" when we show affection. Hope that you all had the bestest day ever. Here are a few pictures from our celebration...

Thanks Petra!


Our sweet little friend Petra just gave us this really cool award and we really appreciate it! Thanks a million---we think you are pretty special too!

I am a wild & crazy hunter!

I do not have any pictures to put with this post---Mom says this is probably a good thing. Stop with the lecturing already Mom, I get it! You remember that picture she posted a few weeks back of that wicked looking creature on our fence??? Well, joy of joys, I have discovered a bunch of miniature critters in my back yard that look just like that one! They are little and they hiss at me and they make me C-R-A-Z-Y! When Mom let me out last night I came back in the house covered in little black bugs! Mom was muttering something about "fleas" and I got two baths! Can you believe that??? Anyways when she talked to Dad this morning he picked up some flea spray for the yard. He called Mom at work and told her something about finding a dead possum in the yard and that I probably killed it and that is where the fleas came from. I am not saying if I did or I didn't. But anyways I sure tried to get me another one of those critters when Mom let me out while ago! I had it trapped up against the house behind a flower pot! Mom was yelling something about rabies and Momma possums and she made me come back in the house! No fun... Those little buggers better watch out!

I demand equal time---it's only fair!



Mom took these pictures about a whole week before she "captured the moment" with Rocky's big rat! I don't think Rocky even ever knew that thing was anywhere around! Geesh! Look at me here. I have this huge killer squirrel up in the tree! Can't you tell that he is just shaking like a leaf! I am the most fierce squirrel hunter on my street! This guy is just lucky that I am not snuggling up on a squirrel skin rug right now!

Yikes!



OMD! Look at this picture! This huge creature is perched on the fence in my backyard as I speak! Mom doesn't even think I was aware of its presence. She went out back to call me inside and just happened to glance over and see it! Only about 5 feet away from her! As you can see in the other picture she tucked me safely inside before she attempted to "capture the moment"!

Update on Storm...

Just wanted to let all of our friends know that we are safe and sound down here around Corpus Christi, Texas. Things did not turn out so good for our neighbors around Houston and Galveston though...After watching the news and seeing all the damage they received we truly feel blessed! We dodged a big bullet!
Don't know if we will be blogging again this week. The parents are going up to the Naval Academy to visit our oldest fur brother and they are making us stay at the mean old vet's! We will catch you when we all get back!

Expecting company!



We are so excited! Ozzie is resting up and I am waiting by the front door. Mom told us that Ikes is coming for a visit! We can hardly wait!
Note from mom---I hate to disappoint the boys but they are badly mistaken. Ike is coming for a visit, but not the Ike they are expecting! We will probably be forced away from our blogging for a while. We will be hunkered down at my parents house waiting out the storm. Hopefully there won't be any major problems and we will be back on line soon!
On another note we wanted to let everyone know that Grandpa is back home and doing much better! Tanika was very happy to see him!

Aug 28, 2008

Update on our Grandpa

Our Grandpa is doing much better. Thanks for all your prayers and good thoughts! He is currently in the rehab section at the hospital. They say he will be there at the very least for twenty days. Our Grandma told our Mom today that they allow canine visitors there. Grandpa's little dacshund Tanika will be very glad to hear that news! Mom hopes to go along on that trip so that she can take a few pictures to post on our blog. That will be some reunion because Tanika is Grandpa's little shadow!

Aug 21, 2008

Need to get caught up...

Mom has been away for the past few days so we have not been able to blog or keep up with our friends blogs. Our Grandpa (Mom's dad) is in the hospital. He is in the intensive care unit fighting a lung infection and all the other nasty side effects of emphysema. We hope that he will be home soon. Mom is home right now because he is doing a little better. She says she is tired and will try to help us with our blog more later.
Oh and I haven't had any of those nasty seizures for almost a week now. Keep all your paws and fingers crossed and please say a prayer for our Grandpa...

Feeling Better...



I am feeling alot better. I was pretty much out of touch with reality this past weekend. Here are some pics of the stuff Mom uses to get me by. She started the Rescue Remedy/Ice Cream therapy this time around and it really seemed to work wonders. I get about a TBLSP of the ice cream with 4 drops of the Rescue Therapy on it after a seizure. It really seemed to help me come around sooner. Plus, I didn't have another seizure once she used it. Hopefully we will be able to hold them at bay for a while now. But I sure did enjoy that ice cream. Maybe she will let me have a taste every now and then, even when I am feeling o.k.

Later,
Rocky

Rocky is bummed out...


I am NOT feeling good today. Yesterday we had a bad thunderstorm and it scared me and triggered my crazy seizures. To top that off my left eye was swollen shut this morning so Mom had to take me to the vets. He says I have an ulcer on my eye. He gave me two different kinds of drops. I've been shaking my head alot lately so Mom also had him check my ears. Gave me some drops for an ear infection. She talked to him about my seizures. He suggested that she give me the supplement Lecithin everyday with my food. He says that should help to loosen up my nerves so that my seizures wouldn't be as severe. I usually go about 30 days without one and then I will have a "cluster" of them over the course of a couple days. Hopefully I will be feeling like my old self again really soon, but right now, I am not a happy camper.

Aug 10, 2008

Just another lazy weekend...




We have had a pretty quiet and uneventful weekend. Our youngest, furless brother has taken off to Turner Falls in Oklahoma with his Grandma and cousin, Josh for a short vacation. School will be starting in a couple of weeks...
Our dad got some body art done over the weekend. As you can tell by the pictures he is really into weight lifting and martial arts.
Hope you guyz and gals are all having nice quiet weekends too...

The weekend!



So here's a picture of that stupid ball that Ozzie mangled. It has mysteriously dissappeared by the way.
I am so glad it is the weekend. It's cool having the parents around to feed me treats and tend to my every whim, ha! ha! I have them wrapped around my paw! I had several seizures a few days ago and that always seems to get their attention!
Here is also a picture of me and my oldest furless brother. He left early Thursday morning for the Naval Academy. He is helping out with the end of Plebe Summer. We sure miss him. Every now and then I imagine I can smell some turkey cookin'. That's when he will be back. We can hardly wait!
Hope you guyz and gals are all enjoying your weekend!

Had a ball, but no more...

Everyone has commented on my big red ball. Was that cool or what? We really don't know where it came from. One day it was in a yard down the street from our house and then it slowly moved down the street and into my mouth! Can you believe that?
Anyways, the ball has seen better days. Dad took it away from me. My oldest furless brother kept commenting the other day that I sure smelled like poop. Anyways, Dad got to investigating and guess what? I had like this really long string that he pulled from uh, well you know and he said I probably swallowed it while I was dismantling that huge ball! So he took the ball away... No pictures of the string, Mom says that is gross. But she will take a pic of the ball and publish it later so you can see what a good job I did on it. That is, if Dad didn't already toss it in the trash!
Later!

Dog Daze



We have really been enjoying our summer. Just hanging out and doing a whole lot of nothin'. Our oldest furless brother will be leaving later this week. We hate to see him go and we have really enjoyed our visit. We won't see him again until we smell the turkey. That will be awhile...
Anyways, here are a couple of pictures to prove the point about us not being up to much. Hope every doggy has been enjoying these Dog Daze as much as we have!

Hey, We've Been Busy!

Just thought we would let everydoggy know that we are still here. We've just been busy since last Thursday evening and here is a picture and video to show why. Yep, that's right, our oldest furless brother is back home! We sure have missed him. He will be here until the middle of this month and we are really enjoying having him around!

It is with much uh, sorrow, yeah that's it, that uh we have to report that the "creature" is MIA. We also would like to say that we had nothing to do with it's disappearance. That's all we have to say about that.
Ozzie & Rocky

OMD!

Look at this video! Can you believe that? Our Mom is harboring this "creature"! She's even feeding it. It is lurking out in the garage as we speak! Oh the horror!

Life is goooooooooooooood!


I am so stoked!!! Mom has forgotten to chase me around with that syringe full of Potassium Bromide twice now!!! I can't believe how good things are. This is great!
(Note from Mom: He just THINKS he's not getting his meds! After months of chasing him around with a syringe and making him take an oral medication that must have been horrendous, we got the vet to have it compounded into capsule form! Just slip a little capsule into his favorite treat and he never knows the difference!)

I'm so 'cited because I won honorable mention over at http://pugandbugg.blogspot.com. They have a weekly photo contest going on over there and this week was dress up week. I was kind of embarrassed by the entry Mom submitted, but hey, I sorta won, so that's great! Thanks Sophie and Dixie! This photo contest has really been fun!

C'mon, share already...



Our oldest human brother has been home from the Naval Academy for a few days. He got here Thursday evening and found out he would be leaving Tuesday evening (tomorrow). We had thought he would be here until this Friday...But the good news is he will be back around the 25th of this month for a three week stay. In the meantime he will be suffering somewhere in Hawaii for a couple of weeks. We really feel bad for him...but duty calls. He will be spending about a week of that time on a submarine somewhere off the coast of Pearl Harbor. At least he hopes it will only be about a week...
But if he thinks that's bad, take a look at these pictures! Can you see him sitting there enjoying that giant chocolate milk shake??? He only let us lick his finger, once, giving us some lame story about chocolate not being good for us. Whatever!

May 29, 2008

Update!

Just talked to the vet and thought I'd let all Ozzers buds know that he got a good report! The lump is nothing to worry about and should disappear on its own. He just said we should keep an eye on it but it shouldn't be a problem at all! That is wonderful news for the Ozzman because this has been a pretty rough year for him so far! Thanks for all your kind words of support and healing thoughts and prayers!

We are still here!

Not toooo much has been going on lately. Dad is still pulling tomatoes off his bushes and he and Mom are still just silly about it. We made them promise not to post anymore pictures of those goofy plants on our blog! Therefor, we don't have any pictures to post with this, thanks Mom.
Our oldest human brother is coming home Thursday for about a week. He had his tonsils out a week ago today. Mom was all upset because she couldn't be there to hold his hand. Whatever.
Let's see, in other news, Ozzie had to go see the vet Saturday. He has a lump on his back. The doc said he didn't think it was anything to worry about but he took a sample and made a slide to send off. We should have the results by the end of the week. Paws crossed in ain't nothin. Ozzers says he's been through enough already! Of course I couldn't be outdone. I thrilled Mom with TWO seizers real early Sunday morning. I know she just loves it when I wake her up in the middle of the night like that, ha! ha! Anywayz, that's about it. We are looking forward to next week though. Mom will be off work and hopefully will do a better job of helping with our blog this time around!
Later dudez & dudettes!

Tomatoes and What???



Dudez (and Dudettes), you should have been with me and Mom on our walk today! It was so wild. She wishes she would have had the camera. We saw a FOX, in broad open daylight, walk out of OUR neighborhood and cross the street over to the school! The same school where I like to go every evening and leave my umm, deposit... It was a big fox too! We could hardly believe our eyes!
Oh, before I forget in all the excitement, Mom wanted to share some lame pictures of Dad's goofy old tomatoes. He picked a red one this morning and they were just beside themselves! I will let you know if I see that fox anymore. Mom is going to take the camera with us next time!

Will Ferrell
The Comedian

Keeping a straight face around rocky is a cheek muscle-wrenching nightmare. Try as you may, but giggling is inevitable because rocky is comedian Will Ferrell!

For a while rocky was just funny on Saturday nights, but that's all changed now that he's taken his act on the road. Whether he's being silly in real life or on the silver screen, rocky has a true knack for making people crack up. rocky has even managed to make the crossover to the cyberwebs, where he delivers raw, fresh, uncooked humor to his countless cyberpet fans. A fast runner, rocky runs marathons when he's not dreaming up his next slapstick routine. Widely talented and able to impetsonate any number of two and four-legged critters, rocky's fans will be lapping it up for a long time to come.

Ozzie's Celebrity Personality Is...

What celebrity would your pet be? I'm Will Smith! Find out at Dogster.com

Will Smith
Leading Man

A fresh prince in the pursuit of happiness, Ozzie is megastar Will Smith!

Putting the jazz back in jazzy, Ozzie is always moving and grooving to the beat of his own internal drum. Not one to settle for second best, Ozzie only takes on projects that are sure to draw attention and improve his pawpularity in the pack. Ozzie's broad appeal across breed, age and gender lines means that his actions often lead to his being named best in show. Smooth, suave and debonair... he's the perfect pet to take home to Mommy. Not lacking in the looks department, Ozzie‘s toothy grin would send even the most furrocious group of alien invaders spinning helplessly back into space.

Hey there!


Mom wanted me to post a picture of myself so that all my friends can see that I am home and doing well. I hate this dumb cone on my head and I hate this diaper even more! I tried wearing the diaper on my head last night! Mom said she wished she'd had the camera to capture that moment! Thanks for all your prayers and concern. It sure is great having all my blog friends!

Apr 12, 2008

Ozzie's Home!!!

Just wanted all of our friends to know that the Ozz Man is home! I just picked him up from the vet's. He is secluded to the kitchen (and not too happy about that), but he is here. And you will have to take my word for it because the husband is out of town and has my camera with him. I won't be able to post any new pics until Monday. Sorry.
The vet said to bring him back in about a week to have stitches removed and to keep him on his antibiotic until he has finished it all. There is still more bleeding than I would like for there to be but I guess that is just part of it. He is wearing one of the little diapers but I have a little trouble keeping them pulled up. He is wearing a large cone on his head so he can't bite at them. I will keep you posted on how things are going. He is getting used to being back here and he and Rocky are getting reaquainted a little at a time.
More later,
Tammy

Oh Brother, Where Art Thou???


I am so depressed! My little brother was supposed to come home today and he is not here! I think I'm just going to stay in bed and sulk....


Poor Rocky. But poor Ozzie more. I went to pick him up this afternoon. They were going to release him to come home. When he came out to the lobby at the vet's office there were two other dogs there and he got to jumping around and started bleeding. There was quite a bit of blood so the vet said he was sorry but Mr. Ozzie would not be able to go home today. He said he wanted to keep him another day, or so... Hopefully tomorrow but I don't know for sure. Otherwise things are going fine for him. He just needs to get the bleeding under control. In the meantime I will be consoling Rocky (and myself).

Apr 8, 2008

Homecoming Delayed...

I spoke with the vet just now and he wants to keep Ozzie one more night. He says that everything is fine but that there is still a lot of bleeding. He feels like it would just be better to keep him until tomorrow afternoon. But everything is good and he will be back home with us tomorrow evening! I promise I will post pictures!

Another Ozzie Update

Just wanted everyone to know the vet called and said the surgery went well and that he was waking up. He is going to keep him over night. He said he ran some tests and all indications were that this should work. Of course we won't know for sure until Ozzie urinates. Everyone keep your fingers and paws crossed and say a prayer that this does the trick! I will let you all know more as soon as I know more!
Thanks for all of your kind words of concern and for your prayers.
Tammy

Apr 4, 2008

Ozzie update...

Just want all of Ozzie's buddies to know that he is still in the hospital. The vet wanted to keep him through the weekend. Things haven't changed much. If things are not better by Monday the vet will do another surgical procedure. This one would involve creating a new opening in the urethra for Ozzie to urinate from. Paws and fingers crossed he won't have to do this! Thanks for your continued concern and prayers. I will be going to visit him for awhile in the morning.
Tammy (Ozzie's Mom)

Set Back

Just wanted to let Ozzie's pals know that he has suffered a bit of a set back. He has been having trouble urinating so the vet is keeping him a few days and giving him meds to help with this problem. We are hoping he will be home in a couple of days just as good as new! Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
Thanks,
Tammy

Mar 24, 2008

Ozzie is Home


Ozzie ended up having to have surgery yesterday afternoon. They repaired his prolapsed urethra and he had to be neutered. He is still not really feeling up to par but he is glad to be home. He is having some trouble urinating but hopefully that is just because of all the swelling. The vet wants me to call him in the morning and let him know if I see any improvement. As of tonight though he is barely able to produce a trickle. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers!

Oh man, oh man...


Do you guyz see that crazy squirrel up there on that high line??? Our mom should wear that camera around her neck every time she steps outside... That squirrel is just too fast! Do you know what he was doing just seconds before this??? He had the nerve to dig up one of OUR bones and carry it up in the tree with him. That's right, he was sitting up there chattering away and chewing on OUR bone like nobodys business! He just better be careful! His time is coming!
