Busy Times In Blogville

Hi everybody,

It's very hot here where we live. We call these the 'dog days of summer', but not because it's hot, because there's so much stuff going on in Blogville. And just like everywhere else, some of it's good stuff and some of it isn't. I want to tell you about some of the stuff we're doing.

First the not so good stuff.  Mom told us this morning that our friend Tara has gone across the bridge. Tara had cancer and her Mom tried hard to fix it, but we all know that doesn't always work and sometimes we have to say goodbye. 
Last week Sam lost his battle with cancer, too
We know that Tara and Sam are in good company today because the greeting committee at the bridge includes some great dogs like Thor,
and Maggie,

and of course, Tsar.

They'll take good care of Tara and Sam.

We also have some friends who aren't feeling too well and their humans are worried about them.
There's Maddie, who is also going thru chemo.
And there's Zona who just had surgery for her ACL. Morgan especially sends her best on that one.
We want to include Dexter, too. He 's having some leg problems and is going to go bonkers if he can't play with his tennis ball pretty soon.
We wish you all speedy recoveries.

We're all very worried here about the animals and their humans who live in the areas now experiencing wildfires.
These are scary times for everyone living in the hot, dry regions, which is most of the country. Our Mom keeps a close eye on the woods behind our house. There are lots of good people trying to help and that includes help for the animals.

Ok, before you start thinking that it's all gloom and doom in Blogville, there's good news, too.

Welcome to Molly. She came to keep Mitch company and he's trying to teach her to be a lady. It's hard work being a puppy.
There's some other good news, too. This is Gracie. 

She's one of my puppies and when she was eleven months old, she went to live with Splash and his mom J.
Gracie was very happy because Splash and J live at the lake and she got to go swimming a lot. But guess what!
This very month J married T and now they're a big family and that means that Runtly is now their real sister.
Now poor Splash has two sisters, so he knows how I feel with all these doggy girls around. But he and Gracie are  very happy except that Runtley is kind of bossy for such a little thing. Congratulations to all five of you.

Here at home Morgan is getting around a lot better and Samba promised that if Mom took the cone off she wouldn't chew on her foot. Mom did and so far Samba has kept her promise.
We're all getting in shape for the big games coming up later in the summer.

We're planning to be in lots of events. It's too hot to practice outside so we're doing it in the house. Yesterday Sky was doing indoor zoomies till he ran into a door. We've been destuffing and chewing, but Mom says we CAN NOT practice synchronized peeing in the house.  What a meanie! How's a guy to win if he can't practice?

So to all of you, stay healthy, stay cool and be safe.
Your pal, Fudge

We're so very sorry about your friend, Tara. Do you think her pawrents would like to have her included in Our Rainbow Friends?

Poor Samba! Some days, a girl just can't catch a break. Sure hope the cyst just stays away. If it doesn't, she and Jed can commiserate about spending the summer with bandaged paws.

Looking forward to cheering you all on during the pet Olympics - unless we're competing in the same category :)

We think Roxy is practising indoor steeplechase. She has been running and leaping over things. Bella and I are just doing quiet stuff training.

Seems like there has been lots of sadness in Blogville recently. We're glad Samba has kept her promise and doesn't have to have the cone.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

It is a busy time, isn't it? We hope you stay cool. We walked this morning bright and early, and will have to do that for at least the next week...

Nichole said...

Such a busy time in blogville, huh? Sad times of those furbabies who've left us far too soon... but look at those new babies too! said...

That was a great post - thanks for informing us on the news. Zola in France.

Marjie said...

I know Tsar and Thor are best friends, and greeting all of these guys as they cross the bridge. It's good of you to keep us all updated.

And somehow I think you can work on the synchronized peeing when you take your regularly scheduled potty breaks. Just be careful with those indoor zoomies. We don't want anyone conked in the noggin!
