Stuff and more stuff… October 17, 2014

BJ’s fund raiser is coming along.  Mom said we’re 1/4 of the way towards our goal.  Mom wrote an update, including our vet’s info, because it was suggested some folks might feel more comfortable donating directly to the vet’s office.  Here’s the link again, just in case.  🙂

I’m getting braver about taking treats from people I know.  I even follow commands now from Nana Viv and Daddy Ron when they come over with treats.  I made Nana Viv’s eyes get all wet the other night when I gave her a kiss on her hand!

But my bravery also gets me in trouble.  BOL  Last week Mom caught me trying to steal dog rocks from BJ’s dinner bowl.S30A0007Sorry it’s kind of dark– the closest camera Mom had was her cell phone.

Oops.  Gotta go.  Mom’s putting shoes on and she has my leash in her hand.  Guess it’s time for a business trip.  Bye for now!


Mom and BJ need some help, please. October 9, 2014

Can you help BJ and Mom raise some money to pay for BJ’s medical expenses (and for some of Mom’s medical bills too)?  We hate to ask but Mom’s been doing the best she can and sometimes her best isn’t very good.  Especially since she had another accident (she fought with the sidewalk and the sidewalk won, sending her to the ER) and the bills just took over.  I don’t like it when Mom gets stressed out about bills and stuff and right now she’s pretty stressed.  She doesn’t sleep well under normal circumstances and the last few months she has hardly slept at all.  If you can help in any way, we sure would appreciate it.  (What’s that, Mom?  Okay, I’ll tell them.)  Mom said if we make our goal, she’ll make sure I get to use the laptop at least once a month from now on and we may even teach ol’ Mister Big Foot how to use it too!  BOL

The page has all the details but if you prefer PayPal, just ask and Mom will give you the email address for that.  The link is

Thanks and I’ll be back with some cool news from my friends at Oldies But Goodies Cocker Spaniel Rescue!  🙂

Happy Birthday, BJ!! September 12, 2010

Today is your 5th birthday. Today you have been with Mom and me for 5 months. It’s hard now to think of a time when you weren’t with us. We still miss our Buddy Bear, but you are definitely holding a huge chunk of our hearts.

So here’s to you, BJ– may this birthday be just the first of many you share with Mom and me– and your new pet therapy friends!

Just chillin' on a rainy day. 🙂


Good-bye, Panda Bear. January 23, 2010

My friend Robbie crossed over The Rainbow Bridge this past Thursday. He went quietly, in his mom’s lap, while his dad stood nearby. They loved him very much and we are all gonna miss him. Robbie Zaba


Gravatar question… July 23, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Lily @ 9:36 am

Mom changed the gravatar from one of just me to one of me and Lily. She saved it okay ’cause it’s right there on the profile page. How come it’s not showing up as the new pic for our comments? Help, please! Thanks!
