  2. That's a really nice throw rug with a great price point too! I'd love to but some of my crew would just mark it to make it their's...followed by a pissing match.... I always tell them this is why we can't have nice tbings! 😅
  3. Shorty has a favorite place to lay in the living room - under a low console table that has a ratty faux fur rug under it. I've been looking for a prettier rug for awhile and ordered this one last night. It was here in less than 24 hours. Nearly instant gratification. I popped it in the dryer for about 3 minutes where it bloomed into a rug made of gold and white Shh Tzu fur 🙂 I put it under the table where it was immediately laid upon and there he sleeps. Like a movie star on a custom made bed 🙂 If you're looking for a pretty pad to use on the floor, crate, furniture, bed - yours

    He's such a handsome man... I can't imagine him not finding a forever family to love on him! Lily still sees better than all the rest of my crew with her one eye. Nothing slows her down so hoping that won't stop someone from taking him.

    I took Otis to the vet yesterday for another re-check on the eye removal as well as looking at his "good eye". Vet says all is well - his good eye which has no tear production which led to results of corneal damage is looking better too. Then we went to have new pictures taken since his fur is growing out and he's definitely looking "cuter". Hoping his pics attract the perfect forever home application. His fur is much different than Shorty's - more fine and silky. It tangles and gets dirty much easier. I think he might be part Maltese....? Here are his pics from yesterday

    I’d say “living it up style “. It's ok to be that way

    I wish that were the case. They were rescued with many other dogs, cats, rabbits from a hoarding situation. They were bred constantly, and lived in horrible filth. Lily, who has the single eye, most likely lost it to 1 of the almost 100 chickens living in and out of the house. Like I said earlier it's probably a good thing they can't tell us...

    Maybe they lived with truffle hunter pigs in a former life.......and learned to do it. Many $$$$ per oz/lb.

    Bon appetite! Hoping he enjoys! My Cavies dig up dirt with their noses...and eat it. If they could only tell us but then ...maybe it's better they can't.

    Peeeee Uuuuu Shorty is parked in front of the microwave. Stevie Wonder (formerly known as Otis) is there too - but he doesn't know why. I'm making Mack's World Famous Seafood Noodle Casserole. It stinks to high heaven to me and probably all my neighbors. Not really made with the usual tuna and noodles but rather with mackerel, macaroni, peas, egg and vegetable broth. They just polished off the rest of the Turkey Day Meatloaf (also branded Mack's World Famous) with ground turkey, rice, grated yam, dried cranberries, egg and broth. Shorty knows what to expect and i

    Yes - I'm sure of it. I always put a jacket on him when we go out for a walk but when trying to deal with the housebreaking issue I often want to move him out quickly. As I've mentioned, his history is that at 10 yrs old he has been a backyard dog all his life. He's "seen the light" - the inside of a warm house and he doesn't want to go back out. He will make a wonderful companion to the right person but not being housebroken at all is going to make it more difficult. I would work with pee pads inside but him having very limited sight as well as nearly deaf make teaching him new th

    He’s cold because of his haircut. Poor lad 🤨

    He will get the dratted cone off tomorrow - which will make both of us so much more comfortable. Although he has been so good about the cone and wearing a belly band in the house. He doesn't fight them. There are moments where I think we're making teensey steps towards learning about potty happening outside and where we go to find our way outside. Yesterday I was feeling a little cocky thinking "he's getting it". But before bed time, he got up from his bed and headed towards the patio door so I followed him, opened the door to the patio, ripped off the belly band and nudged him outsid

    I'd say he's fitting in quite comfortably!

    He's taking over the place. The more comfortable he gets and the more he learns his way around (remember he only has one eye with limited vision and is mostly deaf) the more barriers he crosses. I have let him sleep on my bed (like Shorty) because as an outside 24/7 dog for 10 years as well as wearing an e-collar because of stitches from the eye removal....it just seemed cruel to try and crate him. I also wanted him close because he *could* scratch those stitches if he works it just right. There are little stairs that go up to my bed because Shorty shouldn't be jumping (back problem)

    Every day it's something new and worse. This morning I was up at 5............Otis slept in for awhile but when he woke up he made a B-line to the kitchen. I'm going to have to move the covered trash can and the recycling container from the kitchen pantry into the garage. Good thing he's not tall enough to counter surf........

    The dogs had a late dinner because an errand ran late. I gave Otis more than usual and he soon settled down on my lap in an after dinner coma. But his head (ensconced in the cone) was slightly off the edge of the chair. He kept sniffing the air very slightly to the point he worried me - was he having a seizure? All of a sudden he flew off my lap.....he doesn't jump down, he puts his front paws out, kicks off and flies (remember he's missing one eye and the other has very little vision). He runnnns out to the kitchen and starts sniffing one of the cupboards like there's a rat or something in it

    Thank you for taking the poor might in

    Aww, cutie for sure! Thank you for taking him. Our Cavies are older, 13 now but took them in at 11 yrs. They were breeders and from a hoarding situation. They spent an abundance of time out doors and their fav snack is dirt. Yes, dirt! They dig with their snouts and consume it so I'm always on top of them outside. Lily has 1 eye which we believe she lost to one of the 100 chickens living indoors and out. She sees better than the rest of them combined. I'm guessing he'll adjust with some time, patience is not very common with most these days. Again, thank you for giving him a chance!

    I got an email yesterday from one of my rescue orgs about a lil Shih Tzu who had happily been "fostered to adopt" but it was falling through because little Otis wouldn't stop barking at their cat. A new foster home was needed. I was sort of considering it....and my daughter stopped by to help me with something. After she left I decided Otis needed *me*. I logged back on to offer but he had quickly found a new foster home. For some reason, this morning I decided to send rescue an email saying if Otis' new home ever needed a break, or vacation I could pupsit. Later today I got a

    I’m back! Yay... Hi, bless their hearts. Why, oh why don’t people get help sooner. So glad they are safe now
  25. How sad... I'm so glad he got to live his last days being loved on by someone who could see him for the love he really could be. It sounds like it was a perfect match from the 1st time she saw him, obviously she is very special too... I know how horrible it is to lose a furbaby, heartbreaking for sure. RIP little Cowboy...
