Catching Up...

Haven't posted very often lately, have I? Here's what's been going on: Mom's been busy. I've been sicky. Me being sicky makes Mom even busier.

I've had tummy problems since early August -- mainly diarrhea poos. Been to the vet lots. Lots of tests and stuff. This week the vet sent me to a different vet that did an ultrasound on my tummy. And my vet sent some of my bloods to a vet far away to see if my pancreas is o.k. My vet thinks I have "inflammatory bowel disease." We're still waiting on the pancreas test to come back, but they gave me some meds to help the diarrheas and we changed my kibble, too.

I had the pukes late last week, but now I'm better. (I actually pukied in my princess tent!) And the meds are helping the poos. I loooove my new kibble, so that makes Mom all happy. And I actually started playing with my toys some again. That made Mom even happier 'cause I haven't played much over the last week. Mom says she misses the sound of my squeakies.

So that's why I haven't posted much lately. I had lots of stuff that I was supposed to tell you about a week ago, but since I got extra sicky, I sorta forgot. I'm gonna catch you up now...

Mom took me to a big park 2 weeks ago. I was SO excited that I just took off. You can tell how excited I was if you look at my back legs -- neither of those paws is on the ground!

Then I spun around so fast I wrapped myself all up in my leash. And just look at those ears flying!

Had a blast at the park, and then Mom had another surprise for me...a trip to a doggie store!

Yes, I was wearing my leash in that just doesn't look like it. Anyway, you can guess what aisle I headed straight to. I had to check out the TOYS.

I tried to dive right into one of the toy bins, but Mom wouldn't let me. She DID, however, get me the little piggy toy that I was after in that bin! She's such a sucker for my "cute puppy" face!

So that was my trip to the park and the doggie store.

Another day, Mom took me over to visit her friend who has a BIG dog and also a kitty. I love kitties. I really love kitties. This kitty's name is Jingles. I just sat and looked at him.

The big dog who lives there scared me a bit, and so Mom's friend said that I could sit up on the bar in the kitchen to stay away from the big dog. And guess what...Jingles was on the bar!

So I sat and stared at Jingles on the bar for a long, long time. Jingles didn't even really mind me being up there with him. That was so much fun!

I've got a couple of other things to tell you about, but I think I'll do those in other posts 'cause this one is already so long!


  1. I hope the VET finds out what is wrong with you soon and it is easy to fix! I am missing all the Buttons videos and pictures.

  2. I has something that the boy brunged home from his werks wot I think your mom mite like. You want me send it to you to gib to your mom fur taking such good care of you and cleaning up all your sickie messies? I is going to post a pic on my twitpic rite now.

  3. Hi Buttons! I'm so glad you're doing a bit better with the meds and new yummy food. I hope the vet will find out what's wrong and be able to fix it.

    That doggie store looked fun. You're so cute the way you just watch Jingles.

    If you're able, I'd love for you to stop by Tuesday. Mama is throwing me a big 14th Gotcha Day party.

  8. Oh no! Tummy and poo problems?? That's not good! Mom gives me canned pumpkin (plain, not the pie filling kind) to help us if our poos get sub-par and runny. Feel better! I bet more toys would help!!
