Hi, friends! Are you still there?! It’s been SO long since I’ve been on here.

I’m just gonna stick to the highlights of what’s happened since my last big post.


  • On October 28th, Mom took Macy to the vet and x-rays determined she DOES have hip dysplasia.

    The left side is Macy’s right leg.

    She’s being treated with Novox anti-inflammatory, Duralactin supplement, and Glycoflex supplement. Ideally, she should be swimming twice a week but Mom’s having trouble finding a local hydrotherapy facility. Mom also has to look into cold laser therapy.

  • After her x-rays, she was completely stoned from the sedation for more than 12 hours. img_20161028_154416.jpgMom thought she was going to have to go back to the vet in the morning because she was so out of it for so long. She even peed the bed because she could hardly move.
  • A couple days ago, she made friends with some goats and a horse.img_20161112_093558.jpgimg_20161112_093435.jpgMom said to Dad, “Did you ever think our craziest dog would be the best behaved in public?” Ummm…HOW RUDE! (but true)


  • All is good in Molly-land. She’s enjoying the cooler weather. It brings more things out to hunt.img_20161028_163358.jpg


  • It seems Jamison is done with living in the office 24/7. He’s been braving the living room more and more. This makes Mom happy because he was getting FAT! This makes Macy even happier because she LOVES him and all she wants to do is give him ear licks.


  • I have been antsy. Way antsier than usual. I’m doing this thing that’s driving Mom and Dad crazy – I lick them ALL the time. I can’t stop. Lick, lick, lick, lick , lick. That’s all I do. There’s been a lot going on and Mom and Dad are working to keep things calmer. Mom tells me that no dog is more in tune with their owners’ emotions than I am.


I hope all of you are okay. I will do my best to stop by to visit your blogs.

I was a discarded, lost little stray without a house or a family...until my mom found me. Now, I am the happiest, most loved dog in the whole world!

    Shelby s suffering from the licking disease too. She did such a good job on my legs that it started to bleed. all of them are into licking. I don’t use beg spray ore lotion. I’m afraid that they will get sick from it. We hope that Macy will feel better soon.

    • Hi, PSH! Everyone told me to tell you they said hi. Especially Jamison. He said something about you guys having a special bond because you’re both black cats that lived wild before you found your furever homes.

      I’m doing a little better with my licking. I WAS fretting over the stress I could feel coming off Mom and Dad but things are getting better now.

      I tried doing the mee-ohms. They worked! Thanks for the tip!

      *ear licks* and *head rubs*

    Bummer about Macy. Every time River bumps into Bear and knocks him down, I warn her she’s gonna have it a lot worse given her legs are so jacked up. Bear’s been doing the laser therapy for his arthritis. I doubt its done much, but the vet and the techs swear by it. (For him, I’m pretty sure all the other stuff we are doing for him make a bigger difference.) Anyways, hopefully you find a place she can swim. That would be awesome – and help get out some of her energy!

    Noodle, so good to hear from you sweet boy. I am sure you are reacting to your folk’s stress and are trying to help. You’re a good boy like that. As far as Macy goes, the cold laser therapy is great. It helped Lexi a lot. So did the acupuncture. The vet and tech said the cold laser therapy is so wonderful that they even use it on themselves.
    By the way, that horse has some very odd markings. Love, Mom #2

  12. your pawrents are right… that is a surprise that your wild child likes goats and horses… I fear them… it is scary to see them with humans on their back, I probably watched Sleepy Hollow too often and have a problem now with horse men :o) We cross our paws that the cold laser therapy is possible and it will work pawsome for Macy :o)

    • I think she thought the horse was a really big dog. She was so good and didn’t bark or anything. I would’ve gone bonkers. No way am I letting something that big that close to me without telling it who’s boss! *ear licks*


  13. Oh Noodle……I think you’re just picking up on stress from your humans and are giving them some comforting licks. That’s sweet but I bet they take showers all the time so you don’t have to do that you know! HAHA Sorry about Macy’s dysplasia – her meds should help her deal with that. Otherwise sounds like life is good for you! Sending you hugs – you have been missed!

    Love, Sammy

    • Hi, Sammy! Yeah, they’re not too fond of my comforting licks. They seem to have the opposite effect on them (yikes). I have to hop on over to your blog and see what you’ve been up to. *ear licks*


  14. Piglove says:

    Oh dear friend – poor Macy. I’m so sorry to hear that and I do hope that her treatments and medicines work for her. I’m definitely sending her some hogs and snout kisses sweets. And Noodle – you are licking your mom/dad. OMP – Houdini has been doing that to mom these days like non-stop as well. Strange huh? Ya’ll hang in there together okay my friend. XOXO – Bacon

    • Mom and Dad say I give sticky kisses and that my tongue is too hot. They really do not appreciate my efforts. * ear licks* Noodle

      Hiiiiiii Ruby! I gots some nice hips huh? Well, aside from the fact that they are a little bits messed up. At least they’re pretty to look at! I will give you lessons on behaving in public ONLY if I can show you how much fun you can have at home if you act like me when I’m home 🙂 Kisses! Macy


  17. Glad things are going mostly well on your end. Hope Macy is feeling her sweet big eared self and Molly is critter hunting (better them than you Noodle). Have fun and keep smiling.

    • Hi, Dennis! So good to hear from you. Thanks for the information. I’ll be sure to pass it on to Macy and Mom. As soon as Macy’s insurance authorizes treatment, Macy will start with cold laser. So far there’s nowhere around here with that watery doom thingy. Her swimming may just have to wait until Spring. Glad you’re feeling a bit better. *ear licks*
