Goin' to the Dogs ~

Welcome friends!  I hope everyone in the New England area is safe and warm and "plugged in". The snow is gorgeous but I cannot imagine that much accumulation.

I have Loocie today so I thought I'd post a picture of her perched like a cat on the back of the couch. It is her favorite resting place and she sometimes spends the whole day there.

This grey face just melts my heart.

Ellie, for the most part, is being a very good house guest.  I think I've been bragging about her a bit too much, and every time I do that, she makes me eat my words.  She left me a "little something" in the kitchen and the thing is, she knows she wasn't supposed to do that!  When I went to get her (which was just moments after the accident) she went running upstairs and hid under the bed!  
Please say a prayer for her mom.  She is not progressing in therapy like the insurance thinks she should, so may get kicked out of therapy and just put in the nursing home.  I guess they don't take in to account the C-Diff and how that has affected her :(

And then there's Annie.  I am so happy to report that I got an update from her furever mom and she is doing well and they just love her to pieces! She gets to go to doggie day care, is learning new tricks and even goes out running with dad Travis. Oh, this sounds like a match made in heaven, well worth the wait!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

Hi Lauren, it just warms my heart to know Annie has adjusted so well in her new home and that she is loved and wanted...I am sorry to read that Ellie's mom is not making progress, oh, I hope she rallies, I hate the thought of anyone put out to pasture in a nursing home. I will keep her in my prayers. Thinking of you from cold snowy Maine, Julie.

Happy to read about Annie and her new home but sad about Ellie. I know she is not your dog but there are pills that can control incontenence. The other option is to release Ellie to the daughter or ask permission to adopt her out. Sad situation all around and glad it is not me who must make that decision. What would Margaret Thatcher do?

YAY for Annie! My cousin is in the same situation as Ellie's mom regarding rehab rules. We had to fight the doctor to keep my mom out of a home, but we did, and we won. She did even better at home with help but not everyone does. So sad.

It's sad to hear about Ellie's mom not responding well to therapy and hate that she is going to end up in a nursing home. I'll keep her in my prayers.

Thanks for the update on Annie. It's good to know that she's in good hands. And princess Loocie is busy being a princess, sitting high on her throne.

Have a great week.

My mother also suffered with C. diff and other infections after surgery to repair a broken hip. C.diff is a vicious infection and makes you so very ill that there is no appetite and no energy available to participate in PT. I want to give you a web site that may prove helpful for your friend, the article titled "Medicare Settlement Means No More "Improve or You're Out." I hope this helps. ... jan

Loocie looks so comfortable up there on her perch. Sorry to hear your friend isn't doing well. She's in my prayers.

Loocie looks like she enjoys sitting up there and looks quite content! Ellie is sure keeping you on your toes...but she can sure melt your heart with that face! Hope your friend starts improving soon :)
