We have the bestest friends ever.

It's Tucker and we were so excited to see a box on the porch for us today!! We knew it was ours even before Mom told us cuz we're sike-o like that. (Oh, Mom said it was sike-ick) Before I get to that I have to answer a question some of our pals wrote me about. I was lucky that my duck went to the office for Nana to do surgery on like a million years ago (it's not done) So the good news is that it wasn't here and didn't have to be thrown out. Now it's just a question if he'll ever be whole again....Nana? Are you reading this? I know he's shoved down in the crack between your desk and the wall.....he IS my best friend you know.

Back to the really cool news....Steve & Kat sent us a box of goodies!!! Wasn't that
sooo nice of them?? Here we are checking it out...Bear really liked this one...he's still chewing on it now.Sam slung this and hit herself in the head. Sorry, Wally, but she's not too bright sometimes.We even got a stuffy that looks like Nemo that Mom didn't get a clear shot of and THIS! It's my favorite...I don't think I'm supposed to be sticking my face in a plastic bag....maybe I should be worried about my supervisor.I love my starfish! It rocks!Thank you Kat & Steve (and we think Wilbur helped) for thinking about us and picking such cool toys! Give your Mom kisses for us!

In other news...Nana sent home the other bear bed from the office that matched the one we had. Good thing, it was our favorite. If you notice Dot is looking pukey here it's cause she's been shooting water-poop out straight of her butt at the speed of light all day. She had to go to urgent care and be Parvo tested just in case - it was negative thank dogness but she has Colitis. That sounds gross too. The good thing was Mom had to stay home from work to watch her poop. Sam pulled the same stunt on Saturday afternoon and got to go to the ER too. If they didn't have to have a stick stuck up their butt there Bear and I would think they faked it for the car ride. Mom said the girls gave her 1000 more grey hairs these last few days so I think that leaves maybe 5 brown ones. Oh and I posted about the shooting poop becuz you guys said in that other post you wanted us to tell you everything and not edit it. So there you go. :)

I remember shooting water-poop! Mama and I were still living in an apartment, and she was walking me. Some nice lady stopped to talk to us. At that very moment I just squated and out it came in full force! I missed the nice lady, and only it the sidewalk, which was kinda this rock stuff cemented together. The lady was grossed out, mama had a heckuva mess to clean up, and I ended up with all kinds of sticks up my butt -- two of them had cameras on the ends of them! I have a form of colitis that is long term and I hope none of you have that! It's okay now that I'm on meds, but the first four months or so that I lived with mama were rather, um ... er... crappy.

happy said...

What lovely gifts! That's so sweet of Kat & Steve.

Colitis? Poor Dot. Hope you'll be well soon. Take care now.

Peanut said...

Steve and kat are great. Thank goodness the shooting poop was not Parvo. Your poor mom probably had a heart attack though when it started. We like shooting poop as long as it isn't serious. Oh and I sent you guys an email on monday. Hope you got it.

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Those are nice gifts from your friends. :)
I hope Dot is better now. It sure dont feel good to be shooting water-poop

Sophie Brador said...

Hey Doggies, I just have this wee little feeling in the back of my brain that there is at least one more box of goodies on it's way. Ahem. I'm not allowed to say any more.

Good news about the shooting poop. Not the part about it shooting, but the part about it not being parvo. That's a relief!


Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Yeah, we are so glad you liked your presents! We thought you needed new toys since your others got thrown away.

I hope Dot gets better soon. I had to go to the ER with runny poops, but I had giardia, not that thing Dot has. Steve went to the regular vet with runny poops and got tested for giardia but he didn't have anything and is just weird. Now we get a little yogurt and a little pumpkin every day and that really makes it solid!


PS. We ordered Durango a toy too but for some reason the 5th toy was shipped separately. We didn't want you to think we left him out and we ordered the toys before we knew how serious things were with him. So you'll have to share the other toy now.

Luckie Girl said...

I like reading explicit detailed reports on your poop making adverture! Watery Poop sounds really good..it's like peeing..except a little more solid. How's that for being graphic?
I hope the ladeees are feeling better now. :)

Lisa said...

Yay! The Ducky is alive and well, we hope. And the extra bear bed is home to keep you all comfy.

Gosh, thanks for sharing the shooting water-poop. I know now what I do NOT miss about my dear Emma and her senstive digestive system.

Now you 4 stay healthy and give your mom a break, huh?

Lisa said...

P.S. That is so sweet of Steve & kat. They are great woofies! Oh and of course, Wilber rocks!

Purrs & Kisses,
The Frisky Felines

Maggie & Mitch said...

How sweet of Kat and Steve! Those are really nice toys!
We hope your tummy is feeling better, Dot and we're sooooooooooo glad that the diagnosis is not parvo!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Ruby Bleu said...

Hi Sweet Tucker...
I sure hope you get your ducky back soon! Those are some pawsome prezzies!!! Please tell Dot to get well, ok!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Mack said...

You like to eat sticks too! How cool! Do yours ever get totally stuck in your colon? That's a real bummer when that happens though.
Hope your poops get harder!
PeeS: Cool pressies!

Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Hey Brats! What cool toys! Steve, Kat and Wilbur are some really good friends to realize you needed new toys. When you reported the shooting water-poop, our mom almost had a heart attack worrying about Dot. We are glad it is "only" colitis. Everybody stay healthy for a while, okay?

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

How wonderful of your friends!!! New toys are always so much fun :)

Jan said...

Maybe next time you could edit it a little? :)

Seriously, we're glad they tested negative. We thought they would be safe but at least you can relax on that score.

Sounds almost like they're reacting to all the stress in the house recently. We get stressed and sick when Jan is stressed.

Poppy said...

I'm glad you guys got some new toys. And it's a good thing your favorite duck was at the toy hospital during this whole ordeal!

I just noticed you guys already have the Make My Day Award...I guess now you have two nominations!


The Daily Echo said...

What a great surprise! Steve and Kat really know how to cheer doggies up don't they? We hope Dot is feeling better soon and we're SO glad it's not Parvo!

Dory and Liza said...

How cool are Steve and Kat!!

Sorry to hear about the ehm, poopy issues, I had something upsetting my tummy the other day, my human was very grossed out!!

Hee Hee -

Sending tons of wet nose kisses your way - Dory

Ferndoggle said...

You guys hit the jackpot from Steve & Kat! What great friends they are.

I'm sorry Dot's butt exploded, but I'm very super glad to hear my girl & Sam are OK. I'm quite sure her Colitis is caused by that diet food she's been on. That is sure to cause anypup digestive problems.


Tasha & Eva said...

Hi Brat Packers. What a great presents you guys got! Very much deserved. Sorry we missed all that has been happening to your pack lately. Our whole pack is sooo sorry about what happened with Durango. He was so handsome and deserved a chance to live a life with lots of love. We just know that Dakota and Thrawn are taking care of their little brother on the other side of the Bridge. Best wishes and many prayers from us and our humans. Belly Rubs,Tasha & Eva.

Kapp pack said...

Well, maybe that is a little too much information....ha roo roo. Those look like great presents. Steve and Kat are the best!

Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

Amber-Mae said...

Wow, a big box of goodies! That's a lot of stuff there & those tennis balls are sooo nice! I want I want!!! Oh poor Dot. I hope her diarrhea will be over soon...

Love licks,

4xBs said...

Anonymous said...

Get better soon Dot!

Those presents look like so much fun!


wally said...

So glad Dot & Sam's water-butts were not parvo-butts! We get water-butt sometimes, too. It happens! I bet Sam was totally cute even with water-butt.

That some great stuff you guys got. It's so sad you had to throw out all your toys. But now you have new ones to look forward to!


Lady Kaos said...

Glad to hear your duck was safe!! And the other bear bed! I hope the girls and you boys get better and stay that way for a long time.

KB said...

i hope you all are trying to keep good spirits during the hard times..we all love you and hope for the best!!! (and don't feel bad, i've had my time with shooting water-poop too..just keep hydrated!)

Sparky said...

That was really nice of Steve and Kat to send you all those great gifts! I must say I'm quite jealous, he he.

I hope Dot gets better soon!


Maya and Kena said...

Avery said...

I don't know what to say. You guys sure have been through a lot in the last month or so. Mom and I are so sad to hear about Thrawn. What a big loss for your family. And then poor little Durango. My heart goes out to you. I hope Dot gets to feeling better soon and that everyone is doing well. Big, huge, furry hugs to all of you.

Sad wags,

We are glad you'all are feeling better. We are so sorry about Durango. He was such a cutie.

Glad the problem is not what you feared!!!

Hi Woo to all,
We hope Dot feels better real soon (a little TMI about her exploding poop). But, so glad that it isn't that horrible Parvo. Those are great pressies!

wally said...


I read the comment on your blog and got so, erm, overheated that the snow melted! But we may get more on Sunday--I'll stop the world and melt with you!



Hey Tucker,

Sure hope you get your ducky back soon and I sure wish I had a bear bed or any bed for that matter--I'll be posting about what the Mommy went & did with my bed later tonight.

The Mommy was sad when she read that both Dot and Sam have the poopies cause she knows what it is like...but she said thank goodness it wasn't Parvo..colitis can be treated.

Huggies and Kisses to everybody...Mona

BTW..did I ever tell you guys that the Mommy first doggie was named Samantha & so she thinks your Samantha is very special but then you all are.

GottabeMe said...

Aw, I'm glad you guys look a little more cheerful!

Randi said...

Hey Brat Pack! So fun to get all those goodies! & to have another bear bed! I'd like to see a pic of Bear on the Bear Bed! Dot needs her own Spot Bed!

Love & Licks,

Amici said...

We're so glad that Steve, Kat, and Wilbur helped cheer you all up a bit. :) It is always nice to get an unexpected gift. :)

Dot, we're glad you got Mr. Bear back again. You sure do love him. Sorry you had diahrea. (sp?). I had that but it was due to my pills and I have now added pumpkin or yogurt to my diet to help firm them up. At least those 2 things tastes good!

Dakota said...

Hey - how's everyone? How is my Bear's toe?


PS - Mom made me say 'my Bear'.

Two Wild and Crazy Guyz said...

Poor Dot. Will she have to be on a special diet now? You guyz sure got some cool toyz!

Hey there, Maryann! You haven't seen poop till you've seen the three of us with diarrhea! Nobody can poop likea 150 pound Tank! We'r on nasty pills but dad coats them with Magic Shell so they're easy to swallow. Don't worry about expressing your feelings - you've been through a lot. Poor Durango - We're so sorry for him and you. Dad's giving Tank extra hugs for survivin it. Thrawn - you take care of Durango for your mama!
