Rain & Pupster Problems

Charlie and Abi are at the vet getting their teeth cleaned. And Charlie is also having a cyst excised from the top of his head.

I planted herbs and alyssum in my big periwinkle garden from Gardener’s Supply. I put some little stones around them to discourage the dogs from stepping on them.

And look, my first clematis blooms!

They don’t look too perky now after the downpour. There are lots of blooms on this vine.

Now the sun has come out from behind the clouds. And my plants got a good dose of rain courtesy of Mother Nature herself.

Note: Just got the pupsters home. Charlie has two teeth left, poor little guy. And they found some sort of tumor in Abi’s mouth that could be cancer. 

I didn’t care what it cost above the nearly $600 I already had to pay. I said send it off and and find out if it’s cancer. 

They both cried in pain all the way home and I cried right along with them.
Gonna be a long week waiting to find out.

  1. When I heard about the tornadoes in Tulsa, I thought of you and the pups. So glad you are safe and sound, but the poor pups! I pray the results will be good and that their pain subsides quickly. It's so hard to see your furbabies hurting, I know.

  2. So so sorry about your little guys, Brenda. I hope they are feeling better. I've been through the teeth thing with Milo along with cancer. He's doing really well but he is 13 years old now and I feel time is fleeting. Good wishes for their recovery.

    Your garden is looking good. I like the stones around your herbs~great idea. I was worried about you with the reports of tornados in Tulsa.

  3. It's so hard to see our furry children hurting. We learned yesterday that Little Pup will have her teeth cleaned and surgery next week. So now, twice a day, she has to have antibiotics, in an effort to keep the infection from going into her little body. Hope your children are doing better, it's difficult to see them age.

    1. Charlie was sick with diarrhea all night. Guess the pain meds didn't settle well with his tummy. He keeps pawing at his mouth. I guess because it hurts and he doesn't know where his teeth went.

  4. So sorry to hear all the troubles your babies are having. I'll think positive thoughts and keep Abi in my prayers. Oh, God, don't let it be cancer.
    Your clematis is beautiful. I hope the rocks will do the trick in your raised bed.
    I was wondering if the tornado was anywhere near you. When I hear tornadoes in Tulsa, I immediately think about you.
    I have only forsythia, red bud, spirea and some tulips getting ready to bloom. My jonquils are finished blooming.
    Thinking of you !

  5. Sorry to hear that your babies are in pain. I hope all comes back well with the report. Hate it when our fur babies don't feel well.

    Keeping my fingers crossed all comes back ok, Janie

  6. I am praying for your little Abi, it just can't be cancer. I know yorkies are notorious for oral and tooth problems. Mine from the shelter had to have 1 pulled as a puppy which they did while spaying,her. That tooth wouldn't budge no matter how much wiggling I tried. She and the other 3, plus 2 cats are the joy of my life. I agree I'd rather hurt then have them hurt. My vet is on speed dial. With seizures, 2 dogs, history of IT Is and bladder stones in this house, a cat with allergies and other cat biting everyone, I should just put money down and spend down from there. You must get spring way ahead of,us. Like everyone else we are having cold down pours and possible snow through April. Can't even consider planting,until after Mother's Day, unless you just want to spend what money isn't spent at the vet, replacing flowers constantly. I have a black thumb anyway. I must be feeding all the neighborhood bunnies and moles tulips and bulbs.

    1. Have you tried just gardening in containers and setting them here and there in your garden interspersed with garden art? My vet is on speed dial too.

  8. Oh, Brenda, those poor babies! I'm so so sorry. I pray the best for them and for you too, sweet friend, that God will comfort you at this time. I know how you love those little fuzzy faces and I love them too. Just take care of them and you. Your garden looks so nice and I know how it brings you pleasure.
    Blessings,
    Shelia 😉

  9. Brenda, love your container gardening. I hope the pupsters are ok, hopefully not cancer! I feel your pain. We lost our sweet 8 year old cat, Oreo almost 2 weeks ago. It is a huge loss and I constantly miss him! Wishing for the best for you! Hugs, Pam @ Everyday Living

  10. Poor little pupsters – praying Abi's tumor is not cancerous. My old girl, Lily, was diagnosed with cancer about 4 years ago. She's still as spritely as can be, full of vim and vigor. She'll be 14 in September and I'm grateful to have had all this extra time with her. My sweet old girl – she's the best dog, always has been. Such an angel. Sending you big hugs, Brenda – be strong, my friend. xoxo

  11. Such beautiful pups! Praying for a good outcome. Brenda, I love your garden. I have many mobility issues but you've inspired me to try containers�� Thank you, Peggy

    1. I started container gardening many years ago because I have a bad back that started in my twenties. I love gardening so much. So I have my little rolling plastic thing I bought at Walmart probably 20 years ago. I just roll it from plant to plant instead of getting up and down. Gardening is good for you mentally and physically. So now, between my back and my ankle, I really need it. It is invaluable to me.

  12. Oh dear! On top of the pups feeling poorly and Charlie having a tumor, too, the rain comes down. It's like tge weather knows our feelings!

    Hopefully, the tumor is just a benign growth! We're all on your side on this one. Did the vet give you any pain meds for the pups? My little old Bear had to have major dental work last year and had quite a few teeth pulled too but he never seemed to be in pain. Our vet gave us Tramadol to keep his pain under control.

    Here's hoping you can have a quiet day with them to kept them calm.

    BTW, your floral pictures are beautiful. Clematis already? It's pouring a heavy cokd rain right now and we're to get 4 inches of snow on the weekend. Boo!

    1. Yes, they gave me pain meds for them both. I gave them one dose right after we got home because they were crying so much. Then they started crying first thing this morning, so gave them another. They can have them twice per day.

  13. The poor babies. I hope they feel better soon and the results of the pathology are good! Prayers for them and you. Love the new plants. We have rain today. I'm going to the Dr and hoping to get some relief for this sore throat.
    hugs,
    Linda

  14. Nice garden. The rocks are a great idea. It's nice that your loving dogs are well taken care of. They are so cute and it's good that they have each other. Wishing the best for you and them.

  15. I'm glad those little ones have you. Just hope it all comes out well. Darling picture of them safe at home with you and each other.

  16. I am so sorry. I hope and pray it's not cancer. I know the agony of waiting to find out. It really take a toll on a person.You all three will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  17. My heart breaks for your sweet pups. I know it's hard as they age, they just seem to be diagnosed with so many things. I hope they recover quickly, and I sincerely hope it's not cancer. I praying for the both of them!
