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
Lymphoma. It was the dreaded “L” word I knew I would likely hear again, but was hoping it wouldn’t be for a very, very long time. But, as life would have it, I heard it again on Thursday. To be very honest, I didn’t need any test to tell me Toby’s cancer was back. As… Continue reading The Dreaded “L” Word
I’m so happy to be able to finally share some exciting news! First, Maddux, Toby and I are in the most current issue of People magazine. And, if that’s not super cool enough, Maddux, the kennel club where were take classes and I are going to be part of a special on Animal Planet Friday,… Continue reading Maddux Appears in People Magazine and Animal Planet Special
It’s sorta suprising I have done this before, but it was both Toby and Maddux’s first ever visit with Santa! Both of them liked it, and were super good about sitting with him. Although the question we all want to know is what they asked him to bring them for Christmas. Any guesses?
Yesterday was Toby’s 9th birthday. When he was diagnosed with canine lymphoma in April, yesterday, was a day I didn’t think I would see. I have never in my life been so happy to be so wrong. There is nothing more in this world that I love more than Toby (and Maddux). He has been… Continue reading My Dog’s Birthday I Never Thought We’d Celebrate
Toby and Maddux are usually in their crates, but when we go places where we are getting out of the car a lot and they are being walked together on their leash coupler, I usually put them in the front seat with me. And, as you can see from the photos below, they love it.… Continue reading Car Ride Buddies
If any of you have done agility, or any other type of dog training, they always tell you to have high-value treats to get your dog to do things they don’t want to do. Maddux is so food motivated, he will usually go for any treat, but when we do agility, specifically the dog walk,… Continue reading Chicken & Oat Meatball Dog Treats
Is there anything cuter than two little doggies running around a pumpkin patch? I might be biased, but I don’t think so! Seriously though, Toby and Maddux were just too cute for their own good during a recent trip to a pumpkin patch. It wasn’t specifically pet-friendly, but we asked nicely, and promised there would… Continue reading Pumpkin Picking Puppies
