Me-at 6 months of age.
We haven't posted very much this week.  We didn't want any of our friends to think we have jumped ship and swam to warmer shores. We just wanted to tell you that for the month of October and first week of November we will only be posting when we can.
Me-at 2 years old.  Dietzman photobombed me.
UPDATE on MACEY:   Her appt. with the ped. cardio guy is scheduled for the 22nd of this month.  For her family it CANNOT come soon enough!!  Her foot and leg are still monster size but it does not seem to be stopping her MUCH.....sometimes she does get pretty tired and crabby.  The local dr. decided to do blood work on her Kidneys and one of the levels was very low...instead of 7.0 it was 3.5....we haven't heard back about that...???.....they have also decided they are going to Doppler her leg to make sure there is not a blood clot they have missed....we wish they would have done that on day one!!!  If mom had her way Macey would already been at the appt. but Mom can't make the Dr. moves as fast as she can our dAD.....please keep her in your thoughts.
Macey is taking the first train out of here and headed for warmer weather with our MOM!

Gussie is still under the weather somewhat that cough cough virus did a number on him and now he seems to developed a tummy virus..  Mom is giving him chicken and rice soup to settle his tummy down. He has been sick at his tummy off and on these past few days.  In the mornings he just wants to lay around, but by evening he is playing around more.  If he doesn't snap out of it soon, back to the GOOD vet he will go.

Angel Sammer and Me.

Gussie will be seeing the good vet next month about surgery on his right eye.  We all know he came to our house with wonky eyes even thought mom thought he was soooooo beautiful.

Now that he is 1 1/2 years old he is having more trouble with his right eye.  The right side of his face is often wet, and with wrinkles that can cos problems.  The frankenvet said that his eyelashes constantly touch his eye, and irritate it. There is a surgery with a fancy name where they tack down some of the wrinkle and that makes the eyelash leave the eyeball alone.  So next month off to the good vet we go to hear what he has to say about it.  It will be a challenge for me and mags to leave his stitches alone, cos everyday we lick each others eyes...its a weird habit that we have. 

Gussie's costume he won from Frankie and Ernie last year.

This is NOT Maggie's best pose.

Then there is MOM.  The election for the County Attorney will be happening on NOvember 4th.  If her boss wins then all is well in her world, her job will still be her job.  If he loses, she will be out on skidrow looking for a new job.  It is a worry at her age cos hers is old.   She is starting to have some sleepless nights over it.  Tomorrow is the big parade here in our county and she HAS to ride up front in a little old convertible and throw out candy....remember what cold air does to her muscles, she will look like a crabby patty when she gets out of the car.  Keep us in your thoughts and prayers....hopefully come November we will be back to our "normal" and all will be well with the world.

Your Friends....Stella Rose, Margaret Mae and Angus McConnell

  8. POTP fur Macey and fur Poor Little Angus Mac..... Maybe he has morning sickness.
    He surely looks super in that clawstoom... Hope you can all make it to DORY's Howl O Ween Pawty... it would NOT be the same without you all.

  9. The 22nd does seem far away. Glad it's not keeping Macey down. We're sending her some POTP and more for Gussie. We hope he's up and drivin' the bus again, soon.

  10. We sure hope that the doctors can get Macey taken care of and get things working right for her! And poor Gussie has been having a time of it. We were afraid this might happen cuz he always drove the bus with his head hanging out the window! Take care our friends!

    Your Pals,

    Pee Ess - When mom worked for the city, they would give new positions to those regular employees displaced by elections.

    Ohh,, ask the vet he might say Pepcid for Angus. That's what I take.
    Puggys have sensitive tummys....

  13. Well not much to say...but lots of POTP here....guess we will see you when we see good pups!

  14. Lots of stresses at your place right now. Know that we are all thinking of you and wishing for all good results for every peep and pup. Mom would suggest you might ask your vet about the Bitter Orange cream she uses on Phantom's tail to keep him from licking his tumors. It seems to work very well. Maybe a little dab of it on gussie's face would keep the others away. It isn't very expensive at all but it is only available through a vet.

    Good luck with everything.

    Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

    Pee Ess - all the stuffing from those toys in Ciara's post has already been pulled out:)

  15. You will be in our thoughts. You have a lot going on. Take care!

  16. You all really have so much going on. From our house we're sending lots, and lots of positive and good vibes with lots of healing energy too! Take care, and let us know how it's going when you've got time.

  23. Momma works for an elected official too, so she understands how nervewracking it is! We'll keep our paws crossed that the election, Gus's eye surgery, and everything else goes super well!

  24. Good Morning Friends, Hope you have a fantastic day today, filled with lots of love! Wanted to share that Sophie was picked for my book giveaway.
    Noreen & Hunter

  25. We're so far behind, our mom is ready to hit "mark all as read". It's not even funny. :(
    We miss you guys and hope & pray all is well!

  26. Hi there, Thank you for checking about the book; I assumed since Sophie was Gus' mom, it meant Angus. My big mistake. There was no blog with her name; if you happen to know a pup name Gus please let me know. Hopefully, she'll see my post and respond. Have a great evening friends.
