Just a quick update to all-grandma's lung puncture from her heart surgery is all healed. However, this weekend my dad got sick and ended up in the emergency room. Today he had a uretorscopic stone extraction performed to remove a large kidney stone; however, during the emergency room visit and CT scan for the kidney stone, which we suspected dad had, a huge mass was located on his kidney. We will not be able to get any more info on the mass until a different scan can be conducted, but that cannot happen until he is healed from the kidney stone removal. The earliest that test can be conducted is Friday, August 23rd. Asking for prayers because it is highly likely that this is a cancerous mass. I will not be on much this week due to caring for dad and then having to take care of mom's dad as he has another 3 hour appointment for his eye and he gets another shot in it. Take care my friends and please keep me and my family in your prayers. Love you all! Love & Shepherd hugs, Contessa

DESCRIPTION

DATE & TIME

Hi Contessa

Tomorrow I will finally get some rest! It is what Mommy calls their Marathon Shopping Day. It is way too hot for us to go along so I will just chill at home with Maya and wait till thay get home and then it's back to work for me! First Maya and I have to greet the returning prodigal pawrents. They of course will come bearing gifts. (Humans tend to have this overwhelming feeling of guilt for leaving us at home...can we work it, or what?) They will bring us treats or toys or something because we looked so pitiful when they left. Sometimes we don't even come say goodbye at the door we are so crushed and in danger of permanent psycological damage. After we accept, eat, run through the house with or put away for later the token from them, trying to once again earn forgiveness from the 2 poor little puppies they left all alone, we have to start bringing in the bounty! There will be food, an occasional new release dvd, materials for dad's workshop projects from time to time, once in a while there will be clearance rack treasures and the all important prescriptions. All of these will not only have to be unloaded from the car but put away in the various places in the house where they belong. Remember now, my humans are tired from transferring the items from the store shelves to the cart, to the checkouts, & to the car so I will be needed in the worst way to keep running around them in circles, cracking that whip to keep them moving until they get that job done! I'm not called the slave driver for nothing ya know! There is one more important thing on the Marathon Shopping Day agenda...the guilt driven playtime. I take advantage of the fact they are still a little uncertain if they have managed to make it up to us for the traumatic experience of going without us in the car or not, so I relentlessly keep bringing bouncy balls and squeaky toys and making Daddy play with me in spite of him being tired. Yes, it will be sweet getting even and we will all sleep good tomorrow night as we collapse from exhaustion! PuppyDog Kisses and Tail Wags, Chewie Cairn Cuddles, Maya

Hi Contessa

I don't have a lot of time tonight because we didn't get online until very late this evening. I was supervising Mom while she "didn't do much today"...that's what she told Daddy this morning. So I figure, goody, we can have some playtime, maybe watch Criminal Minds on A&E or a movie on dvd or better yet, get out the pool or chase some more bubbles as Mommy blows them for us outside!!! BOY WAS I MISTAKEN! We cleaned the bathrooms. We did 6 loads of laundry. We swept the utility room, not once but 3 times. we cleaned cat boxes and took out the trash. We cleaned the kitchen sink and counter. We ran the dishwasher and emptied it. We dusted. Then to top it all off, she gave Maya a haircut!.. And I had to make sure all of this "not much" got done. All this PLUS I had to go downstairs every 20 minutes or so and make sure Dad was doing okay with his workshop project AND I am in charge of keeping an eye on Maya and making sure she does okay after her surprise vet visit on Saturday! I am only 1 pup and I am exhausted!! I am sure glad that woman didn't decide to try to get a lot done today cause I think it would've done me in!! I think for Christmas this year I am gonna get her a dictionary so she can see what "not" and "much" mean for next time. I don't think I can take much more "taking it easy" around here. Maybe with any luck, she will "work really hard" tomorrow so I can get some rest! BOL!! PuppyDog Kisses and Tail Wags, Chewie Cairn Cuddles, Maya

The are such a beautiful tree and their leaves are shaped like hearts. You look so pretty sitting in front of the ones in your pictures, you definitely need one in your backyard. Hope you had a great day, and wishing you a great night...Left a vote...Shiloh Snuggles...Takoda

Hi Beautiful Contessa...

Glad you had a nice day, and really "supervised" Mom while she was working in the yard, and watched her every move, and didn't wander at all. Glad she caught you when you saw the other dog, and you were right back to "supervising". Happy those storms took all the humidity away and your weather is even nicer. We had a great day in the 80's with low humidity. Mom was busy with the yard, and washed and waxed her truck. I was supervising, too, and I'm so happy she was so busy she didn't have time to give me a bath!! Yeah! but I know one is coming soon. Have a great night, my friend, and left a vote...Shiloh Snuggles...Takoda p.s. Are those Red Bud tree behind you in your first two beautiful pictures?

Hello Contessa

I'm glad you were at your best behavior while your mom did yard work. I'm very active, I would have wandered off lots of times. Have a great night! Your Pal, Kane

Hi

Well I think I did pretty good this past week. I only tore up 2 sqeaky toys and peed on the floor at the office only once. Yesterday when we walk home I like to grab the leash in my mouth and pull on it. Well, I guess somehow I managed to get the leash wrapped around my Mom's bad ankle and then I pulled on the leash. Well Mom let out this yell cause apparently the leash rubbed on her skin where she has a plate that was used to put her ankle back together. She got a nice leash burn. I didn't know that she even had a plate under her skin. I can't help it if she didn't tell me. She said it still hurts today. I guess the plate lies just under the skin and she can fell everything!!. Today she was outside on the deck using that power washer again. It took her 5 hours to get the deck clean. When she came in her jeans were soaking wet and had dirt all over them. She left her shoes outside and went into her bathroom. She put her towel on the floor in front of the shower to use at a later time or so she thought. She took off her jeans in the shower and hosed all the dirt off before she put them in the washing machine. When she was done she noticed that the towel was gone and I was running around the house with it. Mom has to learn that when she puts things on the floor it's game on. I'll take anything that is not nailed down!!! Well that is all that I did in 1 week. I don't know if I am getting better or worse. Hope you all have a good night. Hopie Too
