Me Da Girl Wit Many Talents

Helloooo Every Buddy
Hopes Ya'll Didn't Furget Me!

Me is still on bloggy break
Me had to take a breaky from me breaky to say hello to all me furiends and let you's nose dat me is still here.

Still bein' a Nurse!
 Da Momma was startin to get all better because of me wonderfur nursing skills.....butt den her decided to get da bronchitis so hers could bark like da rest of da pack.  Her did good job too!
Her is startin to feel better and hopefully will start dat springtime cleanin chore soon.   Den me will have to snoopervise dat too.  Butt by den me will probably be under da covers wedder and her will haves to be nursey to me! 
(Now you tink dey would do dis fur me if me was sickey?)
No...of course not!

Den when me isn't playin nursey, me is in charge of snoopervision of Dad.  He is going to pull up dis carpet tingy and put down wall to wall (or deck-to-deck) carpeting on da pool deck.  Me tinks he be doin dis jus fur me so me don't slip and slide on da wet deck.  So me has to be sure he be doin it right!

While da Momma be in bed sickey, her wrote Annie's Story (our new pack member) , and put it on her website.  Den her started to work on her new update page and will have it done dis week or so her says.  Mom.....hopes you start workin on da new look fur me blog soon.  YOU PAWMISED!!!!!
(Me needs a new assistant....bad) 

Now, me don't do sad too well, so here be da Momma wit some sad news bout me oldest brudder, Benji!
Mom here......Last Saturday Benji managed to injure himself quite severely in the back yard.  We still aren't sure exactly what happened but we think he may have become tangled in a pile of freshly cut weeds and tall fence grass that John has been clearing out all week.  Long story short, being the very clumsy, unsteady 16-year-old that he is, he may have knocked over a shovel or rake (they were both laying on the ground) while he was struggling to get out of the weed pile and nearly chopped off his head.  He was rushed to the emergency room on Saturday afternoon and spent two hours in surgery while the emergency vets cleaned and sewed up the deep cut on the back of his neck.
He will recover from this but the bad news is that before he was taken to surgery, x-rays were taken that revealed cancer in his lungs.  They feel these are secondary tumors that have spread from other parts of his body.  Because of his age (16+) nothing can be done for the cancer other than to keep him comfortable.
Right now he shows absolutely no symptoms but it'll only be a matter of time.
So, once again, the Power of the Paw is needed for our old guy that he can enjoy his life with us for a while longer.
Thank You....Back to Amber!
********** will be good nursey to Benji too!

Me is still on bloggy breaky butt me will be poppin in and out like da good popper dat me is!  BOL
Gots to get da Momma movin on dis cleanin' job and Dad movin on his re-modelin job.
Since so many in me pack were rescued and so many of me furiends were rescued....dis is fur all da rescues and da peeps who rescued dem!

OMD, that be horribulls that Benji cut hisself and more horribulls about the big C. Now, Amber, did your dad efur think that if'n he did not spray water on YOU on the deck, that it would not get slickery unner your paws? I seen you trying to tell him that but do they lissen? NO!

♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

OH my darling Amber, we are so sorry Benji got hurt and the cancer news. We hope he lived a long time but he has had a wonderful life.

We loved all the news in this post. Who was swiming in the pool.

Guess we all have rescue on our minds. Mommy did a post last night that she post dated for tomorrow with a recue poem to and a video of a little blind dog that will make you cry but it has a wondeful ending.

Paws crossed for Benji to enjoy many more days with you all. Now get away from that 'puter, Amber and get back to nursing!! You've got a lot of work to do!!

So sorry to be so late getting here, but the Momster is having some very busy days here.We are very sad to hear about Benji. It just doesn't seem fair that he should live to be such a great age and then have to deal with the evil C. Paws crossed he will have lots more time before he crosses.

We hear a lot of humans have had bad bronchitis lately. Must have something to do with the wacky weather. We sure hope your Mom is feeling much better soon. Take good care of her.

Boy Amber, you have a lot going on in your life right now. But I am glad you get to take a little break in the water. I never figured you for a water lover but the video tells a different story. I am so sorry about sweet Benji and we will keep Benji in our prayers too. Hopefully you can nurse everyone back to health soon so they can get the spring cleanin done.

Know what? My Vickie is coming to Florida in April. I asked her to take lots of pictures so I could see what your end of the country looks like.


White Dog Blog said...

Amber you are amazing in handling all that is going on! We send you White Dog strength to keep going strong. We also send healing energy to your moma, bronchitis is tough to kick but we hope she is all better VERY soon.

Benji's cut, we hope will heal quickly and without problems. The WDA is heartbroken to hear that the c monster has struck again. Your brother is a Warrior of the highest hero quality and we will walk beside him during this journey sending strength, lending support, cradling you all in love.

Amber, I am so glad you came back to report all of that. I am so sorry about Benji and I have paws crossed and Mommy is praying. I will be sending a special load of magic bubbles so watch for them please. I hope your Mom gets better soon, I hate when mine is sick, I don't get enough treats cause she sleeps too much. That was some hard work at the pool my pal. Rest up girlfriend, you have a lot of responsibility.

Oh, no. Poor Benji. He survives nearly killing himself, only to learn he's got cancer. We feel very sad that all of you will have to go through this again. We hope Benji has lots more good days left!

Glad your mom is getting such good nursing. Keep a good eye on her, your dad and the rest of the pack.

KB said...

I'll be thinking of Benji. I was so sorry to read that part of your post. Because K has cancer in her lungs, I've learned a lot about it recently. It doesn't necessarily grow very fast... I hope that's the case for Benji.

I also hope that your mom starts feeling better soon.

Be a good nurse, Amber. You're needed.
