Warning! Graphic Pictures of Baby's Surgery...

 They discovered another lump when Baby Rocket Dog went in for her surgery today.
 Her drains are oozing blood and she still isn't feeling well.
I'm guarding the living room, since I'm 2nd in command & Baby's out of commission.
They didn't want me bothering BabyRD since she is in recovery after her surgery, so she is staying in our mudroom.  I sat next to the mudroom door after she came home and cried for her for about an hour.  I miss her.

Mommy and I will go to the thrift store tomorrow morning and buy BRD some t-shirts.  The vet's office said it would be good to keep her in a t-shirt while she has the drains in.  Her IV pain medication will wear off by tomorrow, so she has a pain pill to take for the next 5 days.  She is a very good girl and hasn't complained at all so far. She threw up once, and hasn't even had any food at all since yesterday. Sheesh.

Dr. Hall sent Baby's tumors away to University of Washington for biopsy and we should know the outcome by Monday.  Thank you all for your prayers and crossed paws.  Please keep it up!

PS-We never made it to the Mutt Strutt last Saturday because our mommy was in the ER with a kidney stone. We couldn't figure out how such a little thing would put her in the hospital! She's good now...Good thing too,  'cuz we need her to take care of us.

Catchin' Up Now That We're Back In N.Idaho!

 Here I am, home again, where my heart is! This picture was taken a couple days ago. Does my hair look long to you?  Mom made me get another haircut today...She thought it would make me feel pretty.
 Hootie's hairs were reallllly long, so he sure needed that haircut today. Eyes? Eyes??
 Today is Frankie Day!!  We just found out and are so happy to help celebrate our buddy. For a great tribute to Mayor Frankie, check out Jazzi's blog here.

The 2nd annual Pawsitive Works 5k Mutt Strutt is this Saturday.  Not sure if Mommy will be taking both of us though.  Daddy is back in Phoenix now, so it's hard to say if we'll both get to go.  Will let you know!

I, Baby Rocket Dog, have a surgery next Thursday for a tumor on my neck.  Would appreciate it if you all would say a prayer for me, cross your paws, or send good vibes.  I'm not really concerned, but sissy Mama nearly started crying at the vet yesterday morning after Dr.Hall said I needed to have it removed and sent away for biopsy.

Signing off for now.  Lots of love.

WooHoo!! Great Sale at Mr. Chewy TODAY!!

Dear poochettes and poocherootis,

We have been eating Blue Buffalo dry food since last September and really like it.  It has gone up in price since we first bought it, so Mommy has been very careful to shop around for the best price. Here is the comparison of prices for our Blue Buffalo Lamb & Brown Rice, 30# bag:







$52.99 at both PetSmart and PetCo. stores. 

While up in N.Idaho, in the boondocks, Mommy ordered our food through Mr.Chewy
 and was very happy with their front door service.  It was free shipping on orders $49+ and both bags came in their own individual box, so it wasn't too heavy for her to carry them inside.  We also have ordered it while in Phoenix and she has found it much easier than schlepping a heavy bag from the store, and fighting city traffic. Not to mention, it is the cheapest outlet for our food that she has found!  They carry all different brands of food, treats, & medicines and even have sales. In fact, TODAY only, they have 15% off storewide!!  Such a deal.  Their website,, is very easy to maneuver around and you can call them with your order too. Their toll free phone number is 1-800-MR-CHEWY. Easy peasy!!  So, we highly recommend Mr.Chewy for all these reasons.  We hope you check them out & let us know how you like them.

Smooches from pooches,
BabyRocketDog and Hootie
