I don’t know if dogs can get survivor’s guilt, but I’m pretty sure their owners can. Next month, on April 22, it will be exactly one year since Toby was diagnosed with canine lymphoma. Sometimes, I can’t remember what I had for dinner the night before, but I remember that day like it was yesterday.… Continue reading Survivor’s Guilt
Last week before the anticipated insane snowstorm the New York Metro area was expected to get, I bought new bags of dog food for Toby and Maddux. We ended up not getting as much snow as expected, and I ended up not needing the new bags of food until this week. When I opened Toby’s… Continue reading How to, and Not to, Handle a Customer’s Concern About Dog Food
Happy National Puppy Day! To celebrate I just uploaded a bunch of Toby and Maddux puppy photos! Enjoy.
If you follow us on Facebook, you know that last week “Prednisone Toby” decided he was going to reach into a garbage that is way taller than him, and grab plastic wrap that was used to wrap chicken. Honestly, I don’t even know how he reached in there. All that I do know is that… Continue reading My Dog Ate Plastic Wrap
I was going through blog drafts and came across a bunch that haven’t been published, but had photos uploaded. So, expect a bunch of old, but new photos/posts coming your way. This one, like many, I never finished writing but uploaded the photos. This first one was taken early last summer when toward the end… Continue reading Sleeping On Grandpa
My love/hate relationship with chemo is simple. I hate it, because poor Toby gets sleepy and little lethargic the first few days after his treatment. I love it, because it’s keeping the lymphoma controlled, and giving my dog more quality time on this Earth. Actually, it’s not chemo I hate, it’s more the prednisone that… Continue reading My Love/Hate Relationship with Chemo
These boys love the snow! Well, sorta. Toby totally enjoys it more than Maddux, but they both enjoyed climbing up the large pile of snow that was on my side lawn. Maddux just stayed at the top, while Toby enjoyed climbing up and down it. Usually my garden, they enjoyed running around the fenced-in area… Continue reading Winter Dogs
Seriously ….. if it’s snowing, Maddux refused to go outside. He curls himself up under a blanket and that’s where he stays all day.
It snowed a lot today! My office was closed, but I still worked, just remotely. Toby and Maddux were loving it, because it was like when I worked remotely for two years. It was easy to convince them to sit on my lap all day, since neither of them wanted to go out in the… Continue reading Snow Day Dogs
When I wrote our last post about Toby’s lymphoma returning, I apparently didn’t understand everything very well. The key thing I didn’t totally grasp was that unlike last time when Toby was taken off the chemo, this time, he will be on it for as long as it is working for him/he is tolerating it.… Continue reading Chemotherapy Is Now a Regular Part of Our Life
