Well, I know the last post I made was about Happy Hannah.  So a little catch up time on us.  I know our Guardian Angel has been working over time up there on the Bridge.

I don’t remember if I wrote about Snickers and her cyst on her back (I think I did) we had that removed.  Then about a couple of months ago I found another one.  I took her in and had it checked out.  Only a cyst (Thank God).  But going through this journey you just never know.  I took her to our holistic vet Dr Jen ( I did a write up about her and a talk she did on foods and cancer pets when Sassy was alive).  Anyway we discussed different things and came up with the fact that she thought that Snickers was producing too much oil and causing her body to produce these cysts. Our plan to start out was give more baths (with a special soap where she tends to have these cysts), change foods (as she thought the Lamb & Lentil was too fatty for Snickers) and if needed add a herb.

Well we have done the first two.  Although I suppose I do need to give her another bath hahaha how do you keep them clean all the time.  We changed foods to Lotus Turkey.  (Expensive if need be will change the other two but right now just Snickers).  It is a baked food and Turkey is leaner.  Good news that is seeming to work so we haven’t had to add the herb supplement.

So other news with Snickers we are nearing our completing of our Therapy dog training getting ready to test then it will be onto the 10 one hour visits with a certified team 🙂  This is something I always wanted to do with Sassy but never got to.


Jasmine has been good no major problems knock on wood.  She continues about every 6 months with a chiro appointment & follow up with Dr. Jen after her leg.  No problems remain and she is running and playing like a normal dog.  Amazing after fighting for almost a year of her limping.


Bosch… He had his Senior Well visit check up 2 weeks ago.  Everything came back great 100% healthy.  Not one item out of normal.   Then wham on Friday of last week I found a lump.   So I call and couldn’t get him in until yesterday.  I prepare myself for the worse especially after this journey.  Well good news is its just a fatty lump.  Where it is under the armpit she said because its muscular in that area it appears bigger and harder than it was.  We did do an aspirate (needle biopsy).   Following Dr Sue the cancer vet saying “Why wait aspirate”.

By the way I don’t know if EverPup has anything to do with anything but these 3 have been getting it since I brought the two girls home.  It has some aptogens in it and is from Dr Dressinger & Dr Sue.  I gave Sassy the Apocaps when we were on our journey and I swear they helped her.

The best thing of all in 4 weeks I will be in Virginia for the Tripawds.  I can’t wait to meet everyone.  It will be a huge blast.  🙂

    What a beautiful Rotty family you have! And I love seeing a grey muzzle 😉. Happy to hear they’re all healthy and loving life.

    One of theses days I’ll make it to a TriPawd party to meet you in person.

      I would like that Jeanette. Bosch will be 11 May 4. He is a great dog and other than a little arthritis in his back and foot he is happy & healthy.

    Glad it’s smooth sailing for you all! When Snickers is a certified therapy dog, will she get Dairy Queen cones like Lady Darla? And will you video them in super slo-mo? Looking forward to the pawty of the century – to quote my dad….”You know what the barber said, don’t you? Won’t be long now”!

    Paula and Nitro

      I know compared to everything you are going through it is smooth sailing. I am thinking about you, Kodi, & Mr Nitro our hero. I can’t wait to see you guys again. First thing after I get off the plane you are getting a big hug. Just because you need it. 🙂

      Thanks Tina. If it wasn’t so far I would have planned to bring Snickers but I don’t fly with my dogs (put them in cargo) and driving like 19 hours by myself and a dog wouldn’t be fun

    Michelle I’m so happy with all your “good” news on all fronts! You so deserve some smooth sailing! Your pack is magnificent! Give them all a hug and kiss from me and I’ll be looking forward to seeing you soon!

    Well it’s about time we got “A little of this and a little of that”! YAY!! Loving catching up on the girls and Mr Bosch! 🙂 🙂 🙂 And pictures too? Made my day!! 🙂

    Of course, seeing the BEAUTIFUL SASSY SUGARBEAR and he GORGEOUS ROTTIE SMILE always melts my heart. That is such a treasured photo of sweet and gentle Sassy. That girl could not have been more loved! 🙂

    When I saw the ADORABLE picture of you and Jasmine I was wondering where the hecknyiu two were because the background “scenery” was so beautiful!! And NO, I didn’t think the fish was real, but I thought the background was! And then I saw the metal pole holding up the “scenery”! Duh!

    It really, really is a great picture! Jasmine’s pose and expression are ABSOLUTELY PRECIOUS! And your smile is always so happy….And I cannot wait to see it in person!!!! 🙂 🙂

    Snickers looks quite noble in her close-up…..pretty much like the Royalty that she is!

    I remember as puppies I couldn’t tell them apart. Now they each have their own distinct look and their own individual personalities come shinging through.

    I know you’re somproud of Snickers for all her upcoming certifications. That’s a lot of hsrd work for both of you and it’s paying off!

    Now don’t wait somlong for “A little of this and a little of that”! Sassy sent you and Bosch these two and she wants us to follow on their adventures! And she knew you, as well as Bosch, woukd be great teachers for them in so many levels!! 🙂

    Lots and lots of love my dear friend!

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

      Sally that was Snickers and I at the Bass Pro dog days. It wasn’t a very great picture that they took but it was fun and Snickers got some experience doing things like riding the elevator.
      yeah i know I haven’t been very good at posting much lately. I don’t know why. Guess not much to update anyone on.

    WHEEEEEE! Michelle these dogs are doing GREAT and I know it’s because you are such a conscientious mom for them. You are taking everything you learned with Sassy and helping these dogs THRIVE. That’s the best update EVER!

    Glad to hear the Everpup is working. That’s a pawesome testimonial.
