It's a miracle!!

A true blue spectacle!
A miracle come true!!
Just like Mr Barry says!

She may not look it, but Gracie is feeling sooooooo much better!!

For two whole days Mommy hasn't had to hand feed her! (She's been hand feeding her for all of her eight years!)

Gracie even has a spring in her step now.

I think I'll be a good baby sister and give her my all time favorite, super bestest Nylabone to chew on!

First I'll slobber it up but good.
She'll be "thrilled."

I love Mr. Barry! He's an awesome dresser! We both have white feet!

It was an action packed Sunday!

Mommy and Daddy finally let me off the leash so I could run around! YaY!!

Oh what fun!!!

Mommy took video of me too but she's computer illiterate and can't figure out how to even watch it on her computer.
Maybe Daddy will put it on my blog for me. (I'll ask him.)

Ummm. Please pardon my gigantic lady part in this next photo.
(How embarrassing)

Now that I'm finally coming out of heat, it's starting to go down.
Whew! It was taking on a life of its own! I swear it was gonna start talking to me!


Anyway, here I am being cute...

Mommy forgot she left her favorite

art paintbrush on the coffee table.
Then she went outside to mow and left me.

Guess what I found?

She is a
forgetful dope.

Crazy day yesterday!!

Guess what?!

When I woke up yesterday, I didn't leave a stamp mark anywhere!! Mommy looked all over too and found nothing. It stopped. YaY!! I'm awesome!

But when Gracie got up we noticed she was looking a little green around the gills.

 photo 0bb8a198-ae6f-4de7-b7f5-e5288065f0b5_zpsc901ec7e.jpg

She's always had problems with eating. Can you believe it?! A dog who doesn't want to eat!
She also has low blood sugar. If she doesn't eat, she has seizures.

Mommy cooked her up some boiled chicken breast and rice. Nothing. Then she boiled her up some hamburger and rice. Still nothing. Then she tried to tempt her with a tiny piece of chocolate chip cookie. She didn't go for it!
That's insanity!

So Mommy and Daddy decided since I stopped stamping, Daddy would bring Gracie to the vet instead.

Well she had lots of blood work and since she pooped on the vet's table, he also checked that. Can you believe she pooped on the table??!! Boy, I guess you can say that visit scared the poop right out of her! ((giggle))

Anyway the vet man said he'd call in the morning with her test results.

Well, he called. She fine. Everything is normal including the little butt nugget she left on the table.
Mommy needs to start giving her Pepcid AC.

Last month they spent 300 bucks on me to find out I had a bellyache.

This month they spent 165 bucks to find out Gracie has acid reflux.

Makes you wonder what the heck is going on with our food supply???

Not only do you humans suffer. Now us furryfolk do too.

Grrr.

Uh-oh...

Mommy called the *gulp* vet's office this morning.

I have an appointment tomorrow.

Hopefully my "stamping" is nothing serious and it will be taken care of when I get spayed.

Mommy still wants to kick the vet lady receptionist in the shin for saying it was okay for me to wait that extra month to get spayed.

I wouldn't be having this "stamping" problem.

Please keep me in your puppy prayers and positive thoughts.

Thank you!

Helllllooooooo!!!

Have you missed me? I've been so busy! That's what happens when you're awesome.

Friday was Gracie's birthday! She turned 8.

Here's the birthday girl being "thrilled" (and walking away from the camera) about her very special day!

 photo 623264fe-8ace-4c04-9474-1933e0a78018_zps5416533e.jpg

We had a big party too! We had pupcakes with plain yogurt and played games like "Pin the Butt-Crack on the Human."
What fun!!

Guess what?! I'm STILL in heat! Can you believe it?! 30 days and counting. I'm going for the record.

I spent most of my weekend making my "usual mess" and stamping everything. Mommy keeps lying on the couch with a washcloth on her forehead saying, "Why me?!" and "When will this end?! I can't take it anymore!!"

Why her??!! I'm the one going through this, not her!! Hpmf!
She acts like all she does all day is clean up after me. Washing and drying my old sheets and blankies like four times a day!!
Wait a minute... She does do that.

Anyway, that's what I've been doing.

OH and guess what else?! The massive humidity wave finally broke and I got to go outside today! YaY me!!
But it didn't last long because boy, was that sun hot!
I started to get a little wobbly so Mommy made me go back inside. She's a buzzkill.

Well, I gotta go. Mommy just put down clean blankies on the couch!

 photo gracebirthday2_zpsafac2866.jpg

That's my cue to go stamp them.

See ya!!!

If I was just

*grunt* a little taller *grunt* I could reach the counter *grunt* and help myself to anything!

But even on my tippy-toes, I still can't reach it.

She's got cookies up there!
DRAT!!

 photo 6b6e4c1f-8abc-43ad-8b7b-1f92c52dc8f9_zps95635cae.jpg

Can I find stilts on eBay??
How 'bout a trampoline?

It's so hot and humid.

I don't even want to move.

 photo humidstella_zpsc56bcba8.jpg

I really want some ice cream. But I'm not allowed to have any.

I would do anything for a Klondike Bar right about now.

I am very sad.

A few days ago my internet friend Tarryn the Sheltie from Nebraska, went to Rainbow Bridge. She was almost 15 years old.
I wish I could show you how beautiful she was. But this darn computer won't let me save her photo! Mommy couldn't save it either. But trust me when I tell you, she was a real looker!!

Anyway, she has been through a lot this past year. Last summer she had a stroke. But her human Mommy never gave up on her. She carried her wherever she needed to go and worked with her trying to make her better.
Over time she was able to crawl. Then her Mommy worked on getting her to stand. She did! Then one day when her Mommy forgot to give her a treat, so she took a few steps!! It was a miracle!!

But recently her kidneys started to fail and her Mommy and Daddy knew it was time to say goodbye.

Goodbye, Tarryn.





My Beloved Master
Unknown

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.
I want to reassure you, that I'm not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "It's me."
You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It's possible for me to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew ...
In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning and say
"Goodnight, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out ... then come home to be with me.

I give up.

I searched all the Victoria's Secret catalogs for an eight boobied bra.
There's nothing out there for me.
Sigh.

 photo ste_zps429da11f.jpg

Maybe I need to ask the lady from "Total Recall" where she shops.

This is my 100th post!!! Can you believe it?!
YaY me!!!

Does this mean I get a "booby prize"??!!

I slay me !

It's been almost 21 days

and I'm still in heat.

Mommy, Daddy and Gracie are just as exhausted as I am.

But guess what???!!

I have boobies now!

I'm no Jayne Mansfield, but I have been pawing through some Victoria's Secret catalogs.

Happy Independence Day!!!

What better way to celebrate our nation's birth than to talk about my awesomeness, right??!!

 photo flag1_zpsb62d1efb.jpg

Did you know that I am considered "The American Gentleman?" Well not me personally because I'm a girl, but my breed the Boston Terrier is!! (I think we need to change it to "The Awesome American Gentleman.")

I go far back as 1870! I was bred in Boston, Massachusetts. My ancestor from way back then was named "Judge."
Maybe Judge Reinhold? Or Judge Wapner? Who knows?! But he was famous, like me!

I am part English Bulldog and part white English Terrier. But the English Terrier is extinct. I couldn't believe it!
Maybe it's because they smoked cigarettes. You know, like the dinosaurs. I bet you didn't know that, huh? See! You learned something.
It wasn't an asteroid. Or a volcanic eruption. It was Lucky Strikes.

Anyways, I hope everyone has a swell Independence Day!!

I know I will. I plan on dining on all the carpenter ants that have surfaced since we got all that flooding.
I especially enjoy it when one crawls around in my mouth then latches itself up in my gums. Then I spend 20 minutes licking the air until Mommy sees me licking the air, knowing I have a carpenter ant stuck in my mouth and she comes and pulls it out.

Yes, I'll be doing that all day tomorrow just like I did all day today.

YaY me!!

P.S.
My dinosaur theory could be wrong. I bet Wikipedia has the answer.
((giggle))
