Oskar is Down



Three words I had hoped I would never have to type...but our pie-bald boy is currently a patient at the Atlantic Veterinary Hospital. He is in ICU, being administered pain meds & has undergone thorough examinations by the resident veterinarian & the surgeon who will be performing his procedure.

There is still some motor function, however Osk is unable to stand, which is why he is in ICU...he will undergo an MRI...which will give them a 3D view of the spine & what & where the problem(s) lie. Surgery is scheduled for Thursday morning...unless his motor function deteriorates and if so, they will go into surgery immediately.

He is receiving the best veterinary care possible & we are so very thankful he is under their care. We are blessed to have this amazing hospital at our doorsteps.

We will keep everyone posted & ask that you keep us in your prawyers.

Seriously....More Snow?

We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas...we had a wonderful time at home with our Nani visint us over the holidays. We have so much snow....and it's impossible to get out for walkies. And another storm coming tonight....*sigh*....but thank dawg we did not loose our power like our friends & family in New Brunswick.

Very cold & dark Christmas for a lot of people...even our Auntie Pat lost power for a long time, but she is safe & warm with her daughter-in-law & family. But Mama is sad she didn't get visit with her over the holidays...Mother Nature is in control these days!

We have so much to be thankful for, we are happy, healthy & snug by a warm fire. Dad drove Nani home yesterday & we are anxiously awaiting for him to get home.

And our nephew, Benson came to visit...Uncle Oskar was not very hospitable...(oops)...Auntie Schatzi was "ok" with his visit..but can't understand what all the fuss is about...




Uncle Osk will get used to Benson...but he says he doesn't have to like it! Cranky boy...

It's Officially December...


And the weather has been cold, windy & yesterday it snowed most of the day...and we don't like snow...at all. We were pretty happy to see our stockings hung up...in anticipation for Santa Paws...



But and even more importantly...a certain resident pie-bald has a birthday this week...hmmm....could it be Thursday?? I don't think he wants to talk about it though....

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Usually it is me, Oskar irritating something or someone...but today I saw Dr. Condon...and I have irritable bowel disease. It's kinda been there all along...but now I have worse & worse episodes...and more often.
Now...normally I say...poop happens...and I'm a guy who likes to poop...but this is a bit too much!! Dr. Condon prescribed Metronidazole (big word, huh?) twice a day. Keeping my paws crossed my tummy woes will soon be over!!

Fall Walkies....

Last evening was such a great time to pull on our fleecies & strike out around the neighbourhood...it was cool, but not windy like the night before...



Not sure how it happens exactly...but our fleecies seem to shrink a bit over the summer...does that ever happen to you?



This is Mr. Gallant's house...he always decorates with cool stuff...



And Lacy was barking hello from her front window...



Some pretty trees in our yard...

Catching Up...

It's been a busy fall, friends. We are staying healthy & happy...and last weekend we had the bestest time ever! The huparents went away for 4 whole days!!! ...and without us!! Now, normally that would strike fear into our dachshund hearts...but we had our husister & Nathan, her huboyfriend come & stay with us!!

It was awesome...we got to sleep in our own beds...our meals on schedule & more importantly....on time! We had oodles of snuggles & lazy evenings by the fire. We know Mama & Dad missed our 5 hour whine-fest during the drive & the need for potty breaks every hour...but we assured them their trip would be ok & they had our four paws up to leave us at home!

In other news...we are happy beyond kibble to know our Nani is coming to our house for Christmas..(folks...it's not that far away....we got our lists done up already!!).

Ok, so on to some really exciting stuff...we "helped" Mama with her errands yesterday...first things first...get buckled in...



See that red postal thingey?? Mama dropped a parcel in there...good thing she had us on hand to tell her how to do it properly...



Ok, so hang onto your peeners....(if'n ya have a peener)....cause made an inaugural trip to...drumroll please....



I'm instructing Schatzi to be on her bestest behavior...like don't pee on the floor or nothin' like that...



OOOMMMGGGG....our eyes got blurrie from seein' all the delicious eats!!! (we assure you it was our eyes that got blurry...not cause we were pulling Mama in seventy different directions....)



Not only did we get our can food...but are you ready for it...NEW TOYS!!! (again our eyes got blurry...not cause we were so excited or nuthin')...



I luv my new Woodstock squeaky...



And Schatzi is happy to shake her Scarecrow squeaky...



As we were leaving Petsmart, the nicest lady came over to comment on us (how cute we are, of course) and inquire about our harnesses & car seats. She is owned by a small dog & is planning a trip to New Hampshire...(gulp....is where Osk came from...but no...we are not sending him back). Mama told her where to purchase Vest Harnesses here & how the lady can buckle her dog in safely...until she can purchase a car seat.

Oh, and Mama brought home from her trip away...an important magnet for our vehicle....people gotta know we rule!!



So, dear friends...that is what we've been up to. Oskar is finally fully recovered from his surgery, but it took a really long time for him to be back to himself. Mama & Dad were very worried...but now he loves to go for walks in the evening...and sometimes we go in the car first & find a new place to explore!! He is having a minor tummy woe today...nothing major...he has these episodes every now & then.

Sadly, Schatzi's eyesight is deteriorating...but her nose more than makes up for any sight loss!

We are sorry we don't post as much on our blog, it is still very dear & important to us...but now we are "senior", we are not as active as we used to be (ok...that sounds like we are totally boring...).

We luv y'all....

Beautiful Day for an Outing....

Finally, the rain has stopped, the humidity gone, the air is much cooler & a pawsome fall breeze is blowing. All signs pointing to a morning outing...Oskar's leg is about 80% back to normal.....our walks are slower & a bit shorter.

But today....we parked behind the community centre (a short drive from home)...



We were so excited...acting like silly puppies...sniffin & peein' on everything!





We even decided to stroll on the sidewalk a bit...we had a blast! Cars going by were honking hello to us!



On the way home, Mama wanted to check out the local pumpkin farm...wowsers...that`s a lotta pumpkins!!!





And lots of gourds..






We will come back this weekend, when Dad join us & pick up our pumpkins. Mama wants a couple of white ones too & thinks it`s time for us to grow pumpkins again in our garden!
