This Week’s Extreme Dog Treats!

Hi! Roscoe, Monty and Henry here with a guest blog post.

This weeks extreme dog treats? Turkey tails,  lamb pizzle and wild caught cod skins.  Smelly fish skin is one of our favorites but mom sometimes passes over smelly fish skins and gets something like turkey tails…

This week we got something smelly and something boring, a bit light on the snacks this week because:

Mom decided to start researching eco-friendly toys, eco-friendly doggy deodorizing products,  and a FURminator for Roscoe!

When Roscoe was young, before we figured out he had Addison’s disease, he had no fur because of his illness, so no brushing for him because he didn’t need it! Now that he’s been on his medication for Addison’s he’s got lots of fur. But hates brushing because he never had to deal with it before.   The FURminator gets more of that loose hair off of Roscoe before he gets annoyed and whimpers for mom to go away! The stupid brush was over $70  but they just changed the packaging  and the same brush in the old packaging was almost 50% off! Yay mom way to shop!   But mom just think about how many treats you could’ve bought for $35…

 

True Confessions

So, I thought it was embarrassing enough to admit I thought the Pooh emoji 💩was a Hershey kiss emoji! Here’s my latest confession:

I have a sticker on my car, a magnetic sticker, for a friend’s daughter who needs a kidney. It says “Ally Needs a Kidney”

I  was visiting a friend’ s granddaughter in the hospital and I parked my car on the street near the Children’s Hospital.

My friend happened to be there when I was visiting. When I was ready to leave she said she drive me to my car. She asked which car did you drive?  The one with the kidney sticker on it?   Yup.  We drove up and down the few streets I could’ve parked on near the hospital looking for the sticker.  We drove past a car just like mine but no sticker….  Then we drove down a few more streets that were a little farther out.  No car with a sticker.  Eventually we decided my car was stolen because there was no car with a sticker on it and called the police and my insurance company to report my car stolen.

We took one more sweep and realized the car without a sticker was my car.  I had taken the sticker off to run it through the car wash and forgot to put it back on!  Thank goodness my friend is easygoing.  She just laughed and said she was glad we found my car.  We spent several hours talking while on this search and dinner after we found my car.  At least we are all caught up on our gossip!

New Lymphedema Gear!

Thanks to my brother in law I was able to purchase several sets of sleeves and gloves, this set is my favorite!

These are much more fun to wear than plain brown!  People sometimes think I am a crazy tattoo lady until they get a close look.  Everyone enjoys these sleeves and gloves.

Thank you Den for your thoughtful gift.  I forgot to take pictures of the others but I’ll share those soon.

The company I order these from always send me a little note.

Check them out if you need compression sleeves or gloves, they are a lot of fun!

More News on Origami Bouquets for Oncology

Delivered about 20 origami bouquets to one of the oncology coordinators.

Here is the report from her first delivery –   I just delivered three of the flowers to the inpatient oncology unit at Littleton.   The first lady was so grateful.  The second one couldn’t quit smiling.   And the third was a very weak, tiny, elderly lady who looked to be of Japanese descent.  Her face lit up like sunshine.   She had a pillow in her lap so I laid it on the pillow.   Later, when I was leaving, I peeked in on her.  She was asleep with the flowers in her hand.   This morning one of the Radiation Therapists took one to put by the machines so patients could see it when they walked in for treatment.   I would say that the first four made the day for a lot of people.
