'Twas the Dog's Night Before Christmas

'Twas the Dog's night before Christmas,
When all through the doghouse

Not a doggie was stirring,
Not even a mouse;

The dog's stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

The puppies were curled all snug in their dogbeds,
While visions of cookies & bones danced in their heads;

And Ma Dog and I were curled together,
All warm and cuddly, out of the cold weather.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my dogbed to see what was the matter.

To the window I jumped, as I am an agility dog,
Tore open the curtains and looked into the fog.

When what to my wondering eyes should I see,
A sleigh and four reindogs all cute as can be.

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

Then faster than flyball dogs they came,
And he whistled, shouted, and called them by name;

"Now, Rudolph! Now, Casper! Now, Buddy! Now Nikki!
Run on, run on! We must go quickly."

"To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall!
Hurry on, hurry on, reindogs all."

And then, in a twinkling, upon the roof I saw,
The prancing and dogprints of each little dog paw.

And St. Nick filled the dog's stockings with toys,
And treats and stuffies for all the dog girls and dog boys.

And he left us with extra things too,
Bones, collars and leashes for the dogs in rescue.

Then he sprang up to the sleigh, and gave the reindogs a hoot,
And away they all flew to deliver the rest of the loot.

That's when I heard him exclaim, as he flew out of sight,
Happy Christmas to all dogs and to all dogs a goodnight!

Woofs, from Casper, Buddy and Nikki ;)

Yay!! Bailey Gets A New Family For Xmas!

Well our little friend Bailey (Bay-Bay) is officially adopted! He has settled in well into his new home. He has been on trial adoption for about 2 weeks now and it has gone well except for a few little housetraining problems (oops). Luckily his new people love him so much that they are willing to continue working with him on this.

Momma went and visited him last night and he did remember her, but he has clearly bonded with this new family and that is great!

Bye Bye, Bay-Bay. Maybe we will see you again someday as you live in the same city as us.

Our Two Foster Doggies- Jazzy and Bailey

This is our foster dog Bailey. He is a real sweetie. Bailey is an American Eskimo cross. He is quite a small dog. Bailey has been staying with us for about a month now. Momma sometimes calls him Bay or Bay-Bay. He loves to wrestle and play with us and Jazzy. He also loves to cuddle with our Momma. He is very attached to Momma.

Here is his Petfinder link Bailey went on a trial visit for adoption. Hopefully it works out for him. Here are some pictures of Bailey.

Below are pictures of Jazzy, our other foster dog. Jazz has been with us for about 3 months. She is a bundle of energy. She can run circles around us all. Jazzy can manage a day at doggie day care and then have tons of energy left for the Off leash Dog Park or a run with her volunteer jogger.
Here are some pictures of Jazzy:

Here are Jazzy and Bailey together in the yard.

Last week I noticed Jazzy walking on 3 legs, holding her left hind leg up. Then she started sitting in the yard and refusing to walk. So into the Vet we went. Turns out she pulled her Achilles tendon at the insertion site to the calcaneous (heel).
She had surgery on her leg a couple days ago. She is now sporting a lovely bright red wrap on her leg to hold the splint on and a lovely cone on her head. She is getting medication for pain and to decrease inflammation. Vets orders are to also decrease activity. No running, no jumping, no wrestling. Lots of crate rest. FOR TWO MONTHS!
Oh my dog, it's gonna be a long two months!
