Easter dresses!

Mom finally bought the fabric for our Easter dresses! We take our picture on Sunday. 
Nothing like cutting it close. 

Mom ordered these adorable egg patches from Patch Nation on Etsy. So cute!

We'll post pictures when the dresses are done. 

The egg patches will be sewn on for the picture then removed. These gorgeous dresses will also double as our evening gowns for the parade in November!

Tummy Trouble Update part 2

So Isabelle's tummy trouble turned out to be giardia. Not a fun bug to have. All three of us got treatment since two of us have been known to snack on poop. Mom has a theory that Petunia brought the mess in the house from eating some nasty neighborhood cat poop, then spread it to the rest of us. 

So another week, no birthday burger! 
The Panacur plus the Clavamox was not being kind to Isabelle's tummy, 
and she would not have enjoyed it. 

However, today she's feeling a lot better. Perky almost. 
Tomorrow, we're going to eat her birthday cake!

Check out the awesome treat our Aunt Erin and Uncle Pete brought Isabelle from Texas! 

Mom said we can all get one piece, but Isabelle gets the rest!

And, check this out! 

No more black tongue! Maybe it was the Pepto!

Lastly, a moment of silence for Roxy's  cast iron tummy. 
She told us that she can no longer eat anything and everything. 
We'll raise a burger in your honor.

Tummy trouble update

We visited the vet this afternoon about my tummy troubles. Dr. Johnson said no birthday burger for a week! Can you believe it! I'm an old lady! I might not last a whole week!

I've also been having some potty issues overnight and my tongue has turned black. I am falling apart! 

This is a seriously unflattering selfie, mom. 

The vet tech had a hunch that my tongue turned black because I've taking Pepto-bismol for a week. Our vet had never heard that before, but we are under strict instructions to report back on my tongue color after stopping Pepto. 
Have any of you ever heard of that? 

Anyway, we got two weeks' worth of antibiotics to battle the bugs.
I'm sleeping it off, just biding my time until my birthday burger. The vet said I was actually on the thin side and could use a few extra treats. 
Bring them on!

Fourteen and counting!

We don't really know when Isabelle's birthday is, but this is the day we celebrate it. Five years ago, on March 20, Isabelle and Quincy were taken into rescue by Mid-Atlantic Pug Rescue. She came into our home that day and has never left. 

Her tummy issues haven't resolved (which means a trip to the vet tomorrow) so no birthday burger today. That will come when she feels better. 

For her birthday, Isabelle got a swanky red sweatshirt with a flying heart from PugPossessed's Etsy shop! 

It's super cosy and warm, which is good since the temps have dropped. Again. 

But her favorite gift was the Pup Warmer by Body Glove.

This thing is pretty cool. It only heats up to 102 degrees so no chance of getting burned. Older dogs can lose sensation in body parts and not realize they are getting too hot. It's electric, but it is weight activated. So it only turns on when Isabelle is lying on it. That saves energy.

Best of all? Isabelle actually uses it. 
She loves it. 

Mom has bought several warming things for Miss Isabelle. Heated beds, Snuggle Safes, you name it. Isabelle didn't like any of them. 

The black thing is a neoprene cover which is water resistant. It's okay, but a nice fleece cover is better.

It fits perfectly inside this bed from our Aunt Mandy, covered by a little blanket. 
As you can see, she really likes it. 

Her tummy has been unhappy for a week tomorrow, and Pepto just isn't working. It's more than just cleaning up a mess. She just doesn't feel well. Paws crossed whatever the vet gives us tomorrow will make her feel better.
