BOO!

Hello All!

WOW-It has been almost 2 years since I have posted here. I finally figured out how to log back in-lol! I am usually on Facebook. Oh WAIT-we have a new puppy-he will be a year old July 8th. He is a Jack Rascal Terrorist…I mean a Jack Russell. Oh WAIT-I am also getting married July 21st-we are getting married in Cancun, Mexico. I just thought I would drop by and say HI—HI!

Toodles,

Patch’s Last Moments

I kept saying I was going to video Patch singing and talking and I never did. 😦 I did video him one time-the first and last time. I am not very good at videoing-as you will see. You will also get to hear my lovely Southern accent as I talk and sing to Patch. This movie is 2:22 long.

WARNING: THIS MIGHT MAKE YOU CRY! IT MAKES ME CRY! 😥

R.I.P. Patch

When the Parents Are Gone

When the parents are gone, the dogs will play.

This reminds me of the black lab, Chloe, I once had.

I found the video (the one I tried to post last week) on YouTube!

How Do I Live Without You

How Do I Live Without You

Leann Rimes

School is out for summer and I should be so excited, but I am having a difficult time right at this very moment! I used to always work 2 or three jobs. I kinda wish I had another job right now. I know I have a million things I need to be doing around the house, but that is at the house-and I am alone when Jedd goes to work or goes golfing! Ok-had to let it all out right now! Thanks so much for all of your prayers and support! Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!

When the parents are gone, the dogs will play.

This reminds me of the black lab, Chloe, I once had.

Click here to watch the video-you will need Media Player (I believe) to watch it.

Come on back and let me know what you think!

I am having a little technical difficulties with this-will try to get to work later.

Anyone know how to add a media player video by chance?

I Will Remember You!

I have so much I wanna tell you all-but I just can’t seem to do it right now! I have been so busy and when I am home-it is up and down for us. This song is for you Patch! I miss you so much! R.I.P. Patch!

R.I.P. Patch

R.I.P. Patch

January 1, 1997 – May 9, 2008

My beloved Patch has left us to wait for us at The Rainbow Bridge. We had to put him down yesterday evening. We agreed that it was time…that he shouldn’t suffer anymore. His liver enzymes were 850-not sure what that means but I do know they should be around 100. When we went to see him before doing it-he came out wagging his tail: so hard for me because I start to second-guess myself. Then as I am hugging him and talking to him (with his head pushed into my chest) he starts to vomit (just the liquids he had in him from the IV). This is so hard to write-It is Saturday morning and I should be walking him. I can’t seem to write anymore about this right now! I need to work on a eulogy and someday I will write more about the experience we went through while at the vet. It was a good thing considering what we had to do.

Thanks again to all of you for your thoughts, suggestions, prayers, and support! I so adore each and every one here for your love and dedication to your pets! They are our world and our children. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you!

Bless you!

Mad with barklove!

WOOF!

p.s. Just noticed the date on the pics-need to fix that on my camera-these were taken at the vet on 5-9-08.

Happy Birthday Message

Gina at Gina’s Public Diary, my wonderful blogging buddy who is also from Tennessee-woohoo, has posted a wonderful Happy Birthday post to me! My comment to the post was so long, I thought I would also post it here. Here is my response!

Thank you so much! *sniff-tears of joy*
I have been having the wrong sleeping patterns-sleeping for about 3-4 hours and getting up at midnight-sh and staying up for 2-3 hours then going back to sleep for a couple of hours-bad me!

Well I had to get back up to make my birthday cupcakes for school. You know how the birthday person always brings cupcakes-I do too. My Mom usually makes them for me, but I decided to this year. When I was very young-like 5 years old, my Mom made me my birthday cake: Cherry Chip Cake with cherry frosting. I loved it! I said then: “I will have this kind of cake every year from now on. Well I have. One year I ended up with three: my Mom, my aunt, and my Granny all made me one. Only one place in or town still sells this cake mix and frosting-thank goodness! Well~I’m up making my traditional “cake” into cupcakes-lol!

When I first woke up-Patch was awake and up. Looking really good! 🙂 I asked him did he need to go outside or was he just wanting to sing me Happy Birthday. You wouldn’t believe how he started talking. He wanted to sing Happy Birthday and he did a wonderful job of it! Then I took him outside-he was running me around-woohoo! The shot he got today must be the Wonder Dog Shot (Imizol)! My Patchy Poo has made it to my birthday! I am so ecstatic! And then I come over here and see this! I believe this is the best birthday ever and it is only 1:00 a.m!

Gina~thanks again! You are a wonderful friend. And since my comment is pretty long-I believe I will copy, paste, and post to my blog-lol!

BTW~I am 36 years old. All of my students know this, but I told them that if anyone asks tomorrow to tell them I am 29 years old. I’m such a good teacher: teaching my students to lie-lol! It ought to be fun to see what they say tomorrow-hehe!

Thanks to everyone here for my happy birthday wishes!
Happy With Bark Love!
WOOF!

p.s. It is also another one of my blog buddy’s birthday today! I will like to shout out to Fighting Windmills and wish her a Happy Birthday too! Happy Birthday Fighting Windmills! Since I am only 29 (wink) You must be 22 years old-lol! Hope you have a great one!

Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

Hump Day Humor Seventh Edition

Theme: Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road

This meme is hosted by Mercedes at Mercedes Rocks

Why did the chicken cross the road?

DR. PHIL : “The problem we have here is that this chicken won’t realize that he must first deal with the problem on ‘THIS’ side of the road before it goes after the problem on the ‘OTHER SIDE’ of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he’s acting by not taking on his ‘CURRENT’ problems before adding ‘NEW’ problems “.

OPRAH: “Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross this road so bad. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I’m going to give this chicken a car so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens”.

GEORGE W. BUSH: “We don’t really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here”.

COLIN POWELL: “Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road… “

ANDERSON COOPER – CNN: “We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road”.

JOHN KERRY: “Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken’s intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it”.

NANCY GRACE: “That chicken crossed the road because he’s GUILTY! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks”.

PAT BUCHANAN: “To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American”.

MARTHA STEWART: “No one called me to warn me which way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer’s Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information”.

DR SEUSS: “Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I’ve not been told”.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY: “To die in the rain. Alone”.

JERRY FALWELL: “Because the chicken was gay! Can’t you people see the plain truth? That’s why they call it the ‘other side.’ Yes, my friends, that chicken is gay. And if you eat that chicken, you will become gay, too. I say we boycott all chickens until we sort out this abomination that the liberal media white washes with seemingly harmless phrases like ‘the other side’. That chicken should not be crossing the road. It’s as plain and as simple as that”.

GRANDPA: “In my day we didn’t ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough”.

BARBARA WALTERS: “Isn’t that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart warming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its life long dream of crossing the road”.

JOHN LENNON: “Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together, in peace”.



ARISTOTLE: “It is the nature of chickens to cross the road”.

BILL GATES: “I have just released eChicken2007, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your check book. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken. This new platform is much more stable and will never cra…#@&&^(C% …….. reboot”.

ALBERT EINSTEIN: “Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken”.

BILL CLINTON: “I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What is your definition of chicken”.

AL GORE: “I invented the chicken”!

COLONEL SANDERS: “Did I miss one”?

DICK CHENEY: “Where’s my gun”?

AL SHARPTON: “Why are all the chickens white? We need some black chickens. “

HILARY CLINTON: ” I have vast experience with chickens and if elected, I will ensure that EVERY chicken has the ability to cross any road they desire”.

Letters~Alphabet~NaBloPoMo

What walks on four legs, runs in a 1, 150-mile race, detects bombs, tracks, bad guys, and still enjoys an afternoon of chasing Frisbees? It’s Canis familiaris, otherwise know as the dog. Whether a mutt or purebred, the domestic dog has been part of human society for thousands of years. W is for Woof: A Dog Alphabet offers a canine course through simple rhymes accompanied by informative, entertaining sidebar text. Subject matter includes behavior, obedience, training, grooming, and health care. After reading W is for Woof, you will have a better understanding of what makes “Rover” tick from the top of his head to the tip of his tail.

W is for Woof: A Dog Alphabet

Written by Ruther Strother

Illustrated by Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen

I am participating in NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month-is now going on every month) for the month of April. The theme is letters.

I will be reading this book to my Kindergarten class. We will start when we return from Spring Break and will read one letter a day. This book will go along with our Service Learning Project which will also start after Spring Break. We (Kindergarten) will be learning about animals & pets and we will have a guest speaker from the two local animal shelters visit us. Then we are going to make posters to put around the school and in the surrounding community asking for donations for the Animal Shelters.
I thought about sharing the book here on my blog one letter a day, but I wasn’t sure about copyright laws and such. I really wanted to do this, but now I think I have changed my mind. Now I have decided to do Blogthings Alphabet-Style. You know how I like to play games-lol! Do you have any input, thoughts, or ideas for me? Edited: I am doing Blogthings-I have already found all but 1 letter-lol.

13 Things~Patch Update

(Patch is my 11 year old dalmatian that has been “sick” for the last four months. Please read my Dogs Page to catch up on the history. He went to the Vet last Thursday and this is the update)

  1. Yearly Shots: Patch got his yearly shots
  2. Dental Work: He didn’t get his teeth/mouth cleaned because he had a slight fever and his blood work didn’t look to good.
  3. WBC: His WBC (white blood cell count) was high
  4. Anemic: Patch is anemic at this time-I can see it in him now: white lips & gums
  5. Weight:Patch weighed 58 pounds. He has lost 10 pounds since this started-but the Doc feels he should lose weight to help out the arthritis in his legs & back. The bad part is he has flabby places-lol.
  6. Bath-Nails-Flea & Tick Treatment: Patch did get his bath, nails trimmed, and his Revolution treatment. I told Doc C that I would just purchase Revolution monthly now-since I didn’t know what the future held for Patch . Doc C said this medicine had to be bought in bulk. I said, “hhhhmmmm I guess I could find someone that uses it and pass it on if I needed to”. He said, “I use it”. LOL
  7. Lab Work: Doc C had some more tests ran. He still thinks it could be a tick bourne related disease. He ran a test for canine ehrlichiosis. He said that even if the first test is negative, it is good to do a second test in case the first was a false negative. The biopsy of the lymph node suggested this, but said that correlation of the patient history and other findings ruled this out. Doc C also mentioned Cushings Disease and had more tests sent off for this.
  8. Meds: Doc C put Patch back on Tetracycline and he is now on Etodolac for pain. We also have Tresaderm drops to put on the sores on his ears-they are back. He has shown major improvement (not shaking) until today??
  9. Results: Patch is on the above medicine for 10 days and hopefully the results from all of the lab work will be in this Monday or Tuesday.
  10. Going back: Patch will go back for his dental work (we think this will help in some way-at least clear out all of that bacteria) after his results come back-hopefully.
  11. Walks:Patch has been limping terribly on & off all week.
  12. Car Rides: Patch’s favorite thing. For a week and a half Patch didn’t go for any rides except the one to the V-E-T. 🙂 He finally went for a ride yesterday and today-yippee! 🙂
  13. Price of Vet Visit: $355. Price of Patch’s unconditional love: Priceless!
(For some reason, I haven’t been able to bring myself to do this update sooner and I know I didn’t do a thorough job for myself-jut so much)

Going to the Vet…again

space
Patch is going to the Vet again Friday morning. Jedd has to work, so my Dad is coming over after he gets off of work to take Patch to Doc C. I have the honors of going on a Field Trip to the movies to see Horton Hears a Who. This is my list I made for Dad to take to the Doc. I hope I have it all covered. For those of you that don’t know about Patch-he is my 11 year old dalmatian that has been going through some tough times these last four months. You can read my Dogs page to learn more.

Needs, problems, & thoughts
space

• Yearly Shots
• Teeth & mouth cleaned (horrible breath, drooling, & sores-we have thought this might be part of his problem)
• Is it possible for him to get a bath (no perfume) and nails clipped if needed-Today?
• Has hard time breathing and swallowing. He smacks and makes weird noises with his mouth. Could there be an obstruction in his throat and/or nose?
• Trembles/Shakes-at various times. He also will do this in his sleep and sometimes has a rhythm with his breathing.
• He has been blah for a week and looks like he is miserable.
• Sneezes often-but no blood yet.
• Hasn’t been for a car ride for a week (favorite thing to do, but can’t get into the car)
• Front legs (behind the “knees”)-noticed lumps/swelling of nodes possibly
• Limping (possibly arthritis-or could it be the lymph nodes/lumps behind the legs/knees?)
• Cipro made him sick-not taking it now
• Not taking the nerve meds either (I believe now that it is pain and not nerves)
• Has a knot on the right, back side of his neck
• Ears and Nose bother him and he scratches/ rubs them. (Wants to shake head often, but looks like it is difficult for him-thinking it could be the knot or the ears-not quite sure). I have continuously wondered if he has ear and/or nasal mites. Is there a test that can be done to check for these?
• Sores on body again and he continuously cleans/licks them and other places-creating more bad spots.
• We sometimes wonder if we should have just left him on Prednisone and Tramadol for pain even though we know Prednisone isn’t a good long term thing and Tramadol kind of made him wobbly. We understand arthritis and can handle that, but we feel there are other problems that we wish could be pinpointed.

Ten Things Tuesday

tenthingstuesdayquestionmark-1.jpg

This meme is hosted by XBOX WIFE

It’s “Ten Things Tuesday”, and that means it is time to put your on your happy face, and share your ten things for which you’re thankful for today!! And if your happy face is hiding? Make your list anyway, and just see if it doesn’t make an appearance!

  1. Awoke from my dream: I am so thankful I awoke from my dream: I had Mary Kay make-up products open (at school-I never do this) and I was giving a lady a book. I told the car riders to get up (nap time) and they all hovered around the samples digging in the make-up with their fingernails-aaahhhhh! Then I woke up-thank goodness!
  2. Alarm Clocks with Snooze: I am thankful that I have an alarm clock: with a snooze (I rarely use snooze) that works. My alarm awoke me from that horrible nightmare-lol
  3. Jedd sleeps peacefully: I am thankful that Jedd was snoozing peacefully: since I hit the snooze button 2 times and the alarm went off 3 times
  4. Patch is still with me: I am soooo thankful that my 11 year old dalmatian, Patch is still with us. He has been sick on and off for 4 months. He was mis-diagnosed as having lymphoma, then correctly diagnosed as NOT having lymphoma. Please see my Dogs page for previous stories of Patch.
  5. Coffee was ready: I am so thankful that this morning of all mornings I set the coffee to auto last night-since I hit snooze 2 times. Whew!
  6. Mary Kay Order: I am thankful that my Mary Kay order arrived and I will be delivering orders this afternoon and receiving payments. Payments are a good thing!
  7. Granny: I am thankful that my Granny is doing much better and seems to be on the right track! She is 91 years old.
  8. My Aunt: I am thankful that my aunt has finally landed a job! She is a nurse and her previous job closed down the Nursing home. She utilized her time off by having knee replacement surgery, but was in a rut after recovery while trying to find a job. She found one-woohoo!
  9. Spring Break: I am thankful that Spring Break is almost here. My Spring Break starts on Friday at 3:30 p.m. BTW-I am a Kindergarten Teacher, but it is time for a break for the kiddies and me-lol!
  10. Ten Things Tuesday: I am thankful that I have met XBOX WIFE and that we are getting to know each other pretty quick-hehe! I am thankful that she has created this meme, she is doing wonderful things with it, and that I was invited to participate!

Random Ramblings

I have had some various things going through my mind and instead of posting about each one, I just thought I would ramble on about them. I talk out loud, ask questions out loud, and often answer back-lol. This is me just rambling out loud! Feel free to comment, leave feedback, and leave suggestions. Have a great weekend & Happy Easter!

  1. Tonight: I just went to get Jedd something to eat. It is a beautiful night! The moon is awesome! That is why Easter is this Sunday: The Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring Solstice. I just saw a cool bumper sticker: God answers “Knee-mail” 🙂
  2. Internet Browser: I am using Mozilla Firefox now. I have tried it before, but I am a creature of habit, so I went back to Internet Explorer. I decided to try it again, because some blogs at blogspot load slow and I thought I would test out the difference. WOW! What a difference. I have fallin’ in love. I just got to get the hang of it. What internet browser do you use?
  3. Laptop: I have been wanting a laptop for some time now. I am really ready to purchase one now. Jedd has found something else to do on the computer, which is cutting into my computer (blogging) time-lol! Any suggestions on what kind to purchase or what I really need to have loaded on it?
  4. Memes: I have recently found some more cool blogs by participating in memes! I love participating in memes! Check my What are Memes Page to learn more. Do I need to continue to post a link to more about memes on my memes posts? Has it been helpful?
  5. NaBloPoMo: I am participating in NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) for the month of March. The theme is lists. I haven’t followed the theme every day (isn’t required) but I have posted every day. I am going to participate in April too. The theme is letters-won’t be following the theme for that much-I don’t think. I have been posting a NaBloPoMo Button at the bottom of each of my posts. I am not going to do that anymore. I have the badge in my sidebar and I have NaBloPoMo as one of the categories/tags.
  6. Mr. Linky: I have been using Mr. Linky where bloggers can add their links to their posts that relate to my posts (usually memes). I was going to stop using this and just let bloggers comment and find them through their comments, but a blogger commented today and I couldn’t find her through her link there. Thank goodness she left her link with Mr. Linky. I finally found her. So using Mr. Linky is still up in the air.
  7. Death in the family: My Dad’s cousin was just diagnosed with terminal cancer. He passed away yesterday morning. Bless him and his family!
  8. Tims Ford State Park: I will be going to Tims Ford State Park this weekend. My aunt and her family (from Signal Mountain, TN) have a cabin there for the weekend. I’m not sure if the whole Gunsmoke Gang (Matt, Dillon, Marshall) will be there or not. Matt is my 19 year old cousin who is battling renal cell carcinoma and has been for 5 years. I hope to see him there.
  9. Dad: Dad came over today and visited me. He also washed 3 loads of clothes.I napped more than visited-oops! He had a good visit with his grandchild too: Patch. I’m glad he came over! I love my Dad! He is awesome!
  10. Patch: Patch isn’t doing good right now. We went to the Vet this week and Doc C took him off of the antibiotic and put him on Cipro. I have read that Cipro is not FDA approved for dogs. He has gotten sick twice this week shortly after I have given him this horse pill. He has been so blah this last week. His sores are coming back-in the same places. He also is shaking/trembling again-which is how the whole thing started. He has been licking more spots on him and creating more sores. Aaaaahhhh! I just don’t know what to do. I had planned on having his yearly shots the first week of April (Spring Break) and also having him sedated to have dental work done. I may have to do this sooner. I still wonder if he has ear and/or nasal mites. I am going to ask the Doc to do scrapings and look under the microscope. Doc C says the skin problems are an autoimmune disease. He is also on an anxiety med which supposedly doesn’t take effect until after a few weeks of taking. But what is making him sick? Please view my Dogs Page to read more about my 11 year old dalmatian who got sick at Thanksgiving. He was mis-diagnosed with lymphoma and correctly diagnosed with not having lymphoma. We just need a correct diagnosis on what in the world is really going on! Thanks so much for your continued support, thoughts and prayers! WOOF!

We switched Vets and found out through correct diagnosis (biopsy of a lymph node) that he doesn’t have lymphoma. Feel free to visit my Dogs Page to read Patch’s stories during this crazy roller coaster ride we have been on!

The point of this post isn’t really the money. It is the PRICELESS part!
