Heart 2 Heart Dance

What a great time we had at the Heart 2 Heart Dance! Seth and I took the adorable BFF's Whitley and Finley! We picked them up at their house and met the Moms, had a few snacks YUM! and played with Whitley's new stuffie! She's the perfect Southern Belle and doesn't mind sharing!

After the meet and greet was finally over successfully accomplished, we trotted out the door to the Dance. Seth and I knew we were gonna have a great time. Finley and Whitley are fun-lovin' gals who enjoy a fun night on the town! We finally made it to the dance, after Seth made a few wrong turns, and refused to use the GPS! We even saw a few Valentine Zombies on the way! That was scary! BUTT we got to the Blogville Regency Hotel just in time to have our picture taken on the red carpet! Here we are with some of our Blogville furiends! Doesn't everyone look great? Wow, Princess Leah and Chester make an adorable couple!

We then headed to the Photo Booth to have our Couple's pictures made. I just love this picture of Finley and me. She looks beautiful in her new pink dress!

Then it was Seth and Whitley's turn in the Photo Booth. We think they may have stayed in there a little too long BOL

Riley even had his picture taken TWICE!  He said he had a great time in the Youth room with all his furiends and had a blast in the bounce house, sliding (Whew! thank goodness he missed Teddy!)  and peeking through the window at the grownups! He says he saw Madi twerking…how are we gonna explain this to Mom? Here's his adorable Valentine card they made. 

We had a wonderful time at the dance, and we hope that you had a great time too! Thanks so much to Mayors Stanley and Murphy's Mom and Arty's Mom for putting together a fantastic dinner and dance! We know all of Blogville will be talking about this for a LONG time (not to mention the twerking incident BOL)! 

Thank you Finley and Whitley for being our dates! We had a great time, and hope you had fun! We will remember this day forever…the day two of the prettiest Westies went with us to our FIRST EVER Valentine's Day party! Huh? Oh, yeah I'll ask her….Finley, Seth wants to know if you still have some of those hot dogs left over from dinner. He says he should have ordered the triple-meat burger at Whataburger on the way home. 

Hope Ya'll have a HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Sunday Selfie

I'm glad I got to bring home one of the BPD cameras! I've been practicing at home!

Please say YES!

I really wanted to do it up in true Scottie style, but it's been a long week (already) and Mom said we needed to get a move on or I would miss my chance!

Finley, I would love to take you to the dance. I will be waiting by the yaptop for your reply.

Update on Braeden

First of all, a BIG Thank You to everyone for their comments, support and POTP for Braeden! He was able to come home tonight! We are still watching him like hawks, but he seems to be doing well having been so sick! He's a bit subdued, although a little restless, and seems happy to be home. He still has the catheter in his leg for the IV, but it doesn't appear to bother him.

Braeden is allowed to have a tablespoon and a half of food every hour and a half. He's on a low fat food, and he is tolerating it well. Honestly, it doesn't look very appetizing, but you would think he was feasting on prime rib! After 36 or so hours without food, we suppose anything tastes good. He's drinking water, but is having a bit of trouble with cone interference BOL That's probably more my fault than anything else. We haven't had much experience with the Cone of Shame.

We have an appointment with the dogtor at 8 am tomorrow. If all goes well tonight they will remove the catheter and let him come home. He will be on a restrictive diet to help prevent any more occurrences. A small price to pay to keep him healthy! We are very grateful to have such a wonderful dogtor and staff take care of Braeden.

Braeden wants to tell you that he has agreed to let me post pictures of him if he could watch Animal Planet tonight.  So here goes…looks like it's gonna be an exciting evening of TV watching!

This is humiliating. Can we decorate it? Like you would sign a cast?

This is where my catheter is. I think red was a great choice of color, but I hope they take it off tomorrow

Sometimes ya just gotta put your paws up and relax. It's a great night for Animal Planet.

Thanks again for all your well wishes! It means the world to us!

Grateful Waggies,
From the Scottie Shenanigans Clan

POTP Please

It's been a rough weekend for us here at Scottie Shenanigans. It began Friday night when Braeden went to the vet. Turns out he had a pretty bad ear infection related to allergies. He came home with Posatex and Prednisone to treat the infection.

Saturday morning started off fine. Breakfast, Trifexis, Lunch, Prednisone, Posatex, Dinner (and a few treats for good measure). So far, so good. On Sunday we started again minus the Trifexis. After a late lunch he threw up. Okay, so that happens sometimes, right? Of course, he was drinking quite a bit of water which I attributed to the Prednisone, so I figured he had overindulged in the water bowl. Dinner came about 8:30. 10:30 more throwing up. He drank more water. 11:45, yep more throwing up. By this time I had become quite concerned. He's never been a puker. I honestly can't say how many more times this happened throughout the night. Maybe three? Four?

At 7:15 this morning I coaxed him to the car (okay, so maybe I carried him). He was quite subdued on the car ride, laying in the seat. Braeden loves car rides, once you get him in the car so by then I was sure there was a serious problem. The vet opened at 7:30. No appointment, no problem. I was able to talk with the vet tech and give her the rundown and written sequence of events. She suggested they do a blood workup but would have the dogtor call me if he recommended anything else. Within the hour, the dogtor called. Pancreatitis. Elevated blood levels. They would do an x-ray to rule out other problems and start him on IV fluids. Thankfully the x-rays came back normal. No growths, no enlarged organs. So pancreatitis it is. Braeden will be in the hospital at least overnight and through the day tomorrow. I considered bringing him home overnight and taking him back in the morning for more IV treatments, but with all the activity around here, I decided it was best if he had some quiet and could get some rest. Not to mention he was pretty ticked off when Seth ate this morning and he didn't get any food. I couldn't do that to him twice in one day!

 The dogtor is going to call this evening with an update. Hopefully there will be improvement from this morning. Please take a moment to send some POTP through the airwaves to Texas. Braeden and I would very much appreciate it.

PeeS...Braeden asks that you not judge the blanket. He had already thrown up on the two "good" ones. This was all we could find. And yes, those are Scottie sheets. He knows you won't judge those. BOL
