We Get Goodies

Much like when old guy-guy Nova was sick, an added benefit of the Sammy recovery has been the abundance of goodies we're given. Anything he doesn't eat, we get to eat, pretty much. The suck up mutatoe and I are the "guinea pigs" (no offense to actual guinea pigs) for the Sammy food.

Unfortunately, like the old guy-guy Nova, Sammy is a picky eater, and just because we like it (we like everything) doesn't mean he'll like it... which means more for us.

Case in point: pumpkin

Apparently the humans are trying to make him poo, but he won't poo, and they want him to poo, so in order to help him poo they're giving him pumpkin. Pumpkin is very tasty, we should know, we got some in our food, but Sammy doesn't particularly like pumpkin. Since he wouldn't eat it out of the can, the human woman baked him some cookies. To make sure the cookies were ok, she tested them on us. They were very tasty. Sammy thought they were sorta tasty (more for us!).

Tonight she mixed something up that included the tasty raw meats and stuff, green beans (euw) and more pumpkin. I'm sorry to report that Sammy actually liked it, which means none for us, but we were allowed to share liking the bowl it was made in.

I'm pretty stuffed, and feel pretty regular now.

I want everyhusky (and dog and fu-fu) to pray for poo tomorrow morning. The humans have to call the surgeon and would like to report a good poo. They're afraid that something called an NMA is in order. I have no idea why they spell their words in front of us, maybe NMA is a cool tasty treat that I would want.

Meeshka,

Enema is not something you want, believe Doodles on this one -- k???

I would think the lack of activity and the surgery and all that would slow down the poo production. But the Dr knows best. We'll pray for poo.

All that food makes my 3/4 cup of dry kibble at 5pm sound very lame by the way. Oh to be a BIG dog.

We have lots of poo over here. Should we send some to you?

We want pumpkin!

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

Happy New Year Meeshka!

We finally got snow. I even sent some to the Ao4! I tried to send it to Turbo and D'Azul, but the snow gods were only being a little bit generous and not a BIG bit generous this time.

I could try to send some snow and poo your way. Dad says I have really big poo, but hey, I'm a big dog, so of course I have big poo. Duh!

Petsmart has some doggie "deserts" that include flavors like pumpkin pie, apple torte, and carrot cake! Maybe your human could try some of that pumpkin pie stuff and Sammy would eat it. I absolutely LOVEED it! It was in the canned dog food isle. It looks like the little cans of kitty food.

Sure hope Sammy starts feeling better soon. But at least you get to be the taste testers!!

PS. I see that your friend Tara went to the bridge a couple weeks ago. I know you have been very busy, so wanted to let you know. We are very sad, and very sorry for her loss. :(

I'd send poo your way but Mom probably wouldn't take it to the post office ... and Rudy is on vacation so I can't ask him to drop it off .. we'll just have to hope Sammy does the deed on his own!

Holly, hank you for letting me know about Tara. This has been a horrible year, I'm glad its over.

I hope all of you in the blog world get extra treats and special attention in memory of Tara. She was a good girl.
