A Delayed Anniversary - Edited at Bottom

It's Tucker-Doodle and I'm here to announce that my 1 year anniversary with my favorite pal will have to wait a few more days. I've learned that he has finally moved from the waiting room in Nana's office and into pre-op. In case you're wondering, I think Nana has those little roses to cheer him up. The Chinese take-out menu is so the surgeon doesn't pass out from the effort and the Pepcid is for the obvious. I don't want her burping and stitching something up wrong.We're just hanging out tonight....Bear is helping Mom surf the internet again. It doesn't look comfortable but he can sleep like that for hours. Weirdo...he thinks he's a Chee-wa-wa.

Edited to Add from Maryann:
***UPDATE - WOOOHOOOOO!!! She was adopted!!!!***

This little girl is named Lady and she is at a local city shelter here. She is 11 years old and was dumped at the shelter after her person died. Nobody else in the family was willing to take her in. I've contacted Beagle rescues in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and even Mississippi but nobody has room. Tomorrow is her last day at the shelter and if she is not rescued by 6 pm she will be PTS on Wednesday. I know there are unfortunately thousands of dogs in this same position tonight but something about this little girl is stuck in my head. If there is anyone out there who is interested in her personally or might know of a rescue that could help her please let me know. I can pull her at lunch tomorrow if need be and will hold on to her until arrangements can be made. PLEASE, if you're considering a new family member and don't mind a little old Lady puttering around really think about adopting her. She needs somewhere to live the rest of her life out. She is spayed and I will upate her vaccinations if her records aren't with her, as you can see her poor nails need attention as well.

We're glad that your duck is getting ready for surgery. Paws crossed that he comes out okay. (It is a he, right?)

Don't feel bad Bear, Samuel is 75 pounds and thinks he's a lap dog too!


Pippa said...

Oh Mistress thinks Bear looks so beautiful in the at photo. Master sometimes tries to share my sofa, it's ok so long as he doesn't get too near. I don't think I would have enough space to share a chair with a person.

Mistress and I are crossing our paws that Lady finds a home. Poor girl.


Maggie & Mitch said...

Our paws are crossed that Lady is adopted! She looks so sweet!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Amber-Mae said...

Oh my, she looks sooo sad in the picture. And look at her nails! She has been sooo neglected. I feel sooo sad for her. I hope a kind soul will adopt her becoz I think she might be a good therapy dog & a companion.

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Ruby Bleu said...

Nice work Bear helping your Mom surf like that. I help my Mom do that all the time.

I sure hope that Lady can find a special home soon. It makes me and Mom very sad.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Ferndoggle said...

Ugh, doesn't that face break your heart??? I think I would even be nice to Lady if she came to our house. Maybe.


Mack said...

Lady looks so sweet. I am hoping and prayer she finds her forever home!

The Zoo Crew said...

Oh, Bear, I'm a lapdog too, and thankfully my mama is agreeable to that fact!

That poor little old lady beagle makes us so sad. She reminds us of sad Fiona. I hope you are all able to help her out. I'm sure her person is turning in her grave, worried about her!

Peace + Paws,


The Daily Echo said...

What great news about Lady! We hope she has a nice fluffy sofa and somebuddy with some nail clippers, and lots of treats.....and love. Sibe Vibes to your Duck. We hope he makes it out okay.

wally said...

Oh I'm so glad she had a happy ending! It is always extra sad when older dogs wind up in shelters. Everydoggy deserves a good retirement!


Lorenza said...

It makes me so happy to hear that Lady was adopted! I hope she will be happy at her new home!
I love that picture of Bear with your mom!
Kisses and hugs

cookie said...

We are so glad Lady found a home! Mom was writing down your moms email.....
She thinks all old timers should have a nice retirement!

Hey, we are big lap dogs too. Sometimes mom has to move to the other chair, because we take up too much room(accfording to her...)

High five paws,
Cookie and crew

Lisa said...

We're glad that little Lady got adopted, too! What a story those eyes could tell and those nails! There's nothing wrong with Bear being a lapdog. He must be comfortable that way. Good luck, Duck, on your surgery!

Purrs & kisses,
Lisa & the Frisky Felines

Poppy said...

I'm glad you are on the verge of being reunited with your best ducky pal. I hope you don't have to wait too much longer!


Huskee Boy said...

Hehehhe... yup, I think Bear thinks he is a Chee-wa-wa or something along that line!!
Hope that Duck's surgery goes well..

Luckie Girl said...

I am so happy that Lady found her forever home. :) I hate to break the news to Bear but he's not exactly a lapdog size doggy is it? :P
I hope the surgery turns out well for your ducky. Let me know if your Nana needs help with the opawration. YOu should know how good I am with opawrations....*wink*

Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

We are glad Lady was adopted. Mom says she will come back and haunt everyone in our family if no one takes in the dog(s) she has when she dies. Mom is pretty scary sometimes now - we hate to even think what it could be like then.

Hope your duck gets out of surgery soon.

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

Sophie Brador said...

Mom is so in love with Bear it's just ridiculous. She just thinks he's the cutest. I think he's pretty cute too, actually.

We are so happy Lady is adopted. Mom really worries about something awful like that happening to me, because she's single and no one else in the family is really a dog person. She really hopes one of her friends would take me if something bad ever happened.


Sparky said...

Hee hee, that's a funny picture of Bear on the chair with your human.

Oh no, poor Lady! Her nails are so long. I'm so glad she was adopted!


Biggie-Z said...

Hey Tucker, My Giant Chicken had surgery recently and it is better than ever. The reunions are even sweeter. My Mommy is supposed to be making a video for me but she keeps talking about writing a brief instead...

Hugs, Biggie

Bama said...

Heehee, Chee-wa-wa, that's funny. Our mom calls them Chu-hooa-hooa's.
We're so glad Lady found a furever home, hope they'll clip those nails furst thing, I bet it hurts her toes to walk with those things!
