A Hard Lesson Learned (of the human kind)


Ok...just so we are clear..Schatzi is fine. Let's just get that out there.

Yesterday, Mama thought she dropped a pill & Schatzi was in the kitchen with her at the time, snackin' on some cheerios. Since Mama couldn't find the pill...she was very afraid Schatzi may have gobbled it up... thinkin' it was a cheerio..

Course...Mama freaked...cause the pill is very toxic for dogs... she called the Dawgtor asap. A quick trip to the vet, a needle in the bum (Schatzi's) a few throw ups later...and all is well. Mama felts horrible about what happened.

But better to be safe than sorry. Mama now takes her meds in a closed room, with the door safely shut..and no dogs allowed.
Hard lesson learned.

Pssst.....


We've been hearing some rumblings about a "road trip" in the near future! Can it be true?
Maybe...we're going to see our Nani?

Oh...and guess what?? Nani has a kitty!! Can you believe it? We are so excited...we can't
wait to meet him! His name is Scamper...isn't that a cute name? Hmm....wonder what colour his fur is?

Now...we all know that we are #1 in Nani's heart...but there is still lots of room for
more furkids!! Gonna be fun....we'll take lots of pics!!

The dawgtor advised that Schatzi's eyesight loss will likely progress, slowly. But Oskar assures us....he will be her "eyes". (unless there is kibble involved...then it's every wiener for himself!!)

Schatzi's Eyesight

We're beginning to think Schatzi may soon need spectacles!
(maybe like these....)



We are suspect Schatzi's eyesight is failing...we are watching her & she has been bumping into things, afraid to go down two little steps (which she has done for 11 years) and it takes her longer to notice a piece of kibble or cheerio on the floor.

We're going to have the dawgtor examine her...make certain there are no cataracts or anything like that.

Hmmm....maybe get her a "seeing eye dog"? or "cool eye glasses"?

cooled it back down again.
