July 4th Chocolate!

This post will have to be short. Dogmom's mumbling something about thinkin' we were supposed to be smart dogs... something about not learning our lesson... something about wondering what she's gonna do with us.

That, and we're relegated back to our crates... something about her not liking the brown lakes we left on the hallway, bathroom and kitchen floors. It's all her fault. If she didn't make us drink that yucky bubbly syrup, we wouldn't have spat up all the chocolate on the floor... we would have kept it in our tummies!

Something about re-reading here and here and here... and finally, especially here...

Dogmom here... While I went to do the boarding shift at Pet Crossing this morning, Opie and Gomer decided to help themselves to the human treats on top of the fridge - a large bag of M&Ms, some potato chips was as far as they got before I arrived home two hours later. I called our vet at home and induced vomiting on both dogs since I didn't know who ate how much. Gomer vomited breakfast... Opie gave me breakfast, the remains of both the inside and packaging for a large bag of M&Ms and a handful of undigested potato chips.

Both the boyz are snoozing on the living room floor. Heart rates and respiration rates normal. None the worse for wear, thank dog.

We're still trying to help raise funds for Gemi's surgery. (See posts from the last few days.) Randi is really special to us. We would not be asking for help if my job at the newspaper had not been downsized in April. Any support - financial, moral, prayer or thoughts - is vastly appreciated. If you can spare a few dollars, all funds donated through IMOM.org this weekend will be matched - so it's like you're giving double! You can donate through IMOM here. Don't forget to note "GF - Gemi Raymond" on your donation!

Wuf Ya!

Oh we are glad they are both okay. Mom gave a few dollars to gemi. She says it is all we can give right now but is happy it is being matched.

Occasionally it's a good thing that Momma is a procrastinator. She waited until today to make our donation. (I think she was too lazy yesterday to reach over to get her credit card) It's not a lot but with it being matched, Momma doesn't feel so bad.

Thank you Peanut and Eva! Every penny helps! We hope she can get the surgery very soon. We don't like it when dogs are in pain.

Silly guys. Good thing you came home in time to take care of them even if it was messy.

It is okay to ask to help. With all the bad things that happen, we frequently forget life is like the Frank Capra movie, "It's a Wonderful Life." There are more wonderful people out there, then there are Henry Potters.

Dog Speed,

Essex, Deacon & Dog Dad too

Opie, Gomer & Floyd,

You may want to tell your nutty Dog Mom to do another post. Those matching funds were for 4-6 July. So there are two more days of matching funds. How do we know, we looked at your links to IMOM.

Dog Speed,

Essex & Deacon
