The one where I’m a Grandma again.

I’m pretty sure I’ve written about my grand-dog Max before; Lolo rescued him about 4 years ago.
He’s quite, um unique……he’s a very special boy. She rescued him and they have a deep bond.

Lolo’s boyfriend Nathan absolutely loves Max, but he’s also obsessed with Huskies.
The Siberian flavor.
Last fall some police friends of theirs who own a set of huskies accidentally ended up with a litter.
Me: “Wait, did the dogs go out one night, get drunk and accidentally sleep together”? 
I know, far be it for me to get into anyone else’s personal life….who am I…the government?
They had a litter and Lolo decided to get one for Nathan for Christmas.

Boy, was he surprised and thrilled with their new baby.
They named him after General ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis.

Lolo & Mattis at almost 12 weeks. Wait, Lolo is 25, the dog is almost 12 weeks.

They brought him home a few weeks ago and it was apparent that this little baby will be larger than his mom and dad. (35 and 50lbs respectively)

He has one blue eye and one brown eye. 

He’s so fluffy….I can hardly stand it.
Also, I can hardly imagine all the hair they’ll be cleaning for the rest of his life.

 He’s very sweet even though the coloring around his eyes makes him look a little angry. We’re thinking that as he grows, the white/black areas will expand and he won’t look like he wants to eat you.
He’s a precious little boy and Cocoa and Callie both enjoyed him romping around our house for a few hours this week; they were both so patient and easy going as he nibbled on them.

Of course, after he left they both said: “Damn, that fluffy puppy has a LOT of energy”!!

Only deluxe for my pups

Recently I figured out that Callie enjoys a pillow on her dog bed; I found an old one in the closet and voilà—-it was hers. Don’t ask how I knew she wanted a pillow, but you know, we ummmm we communicate. 

Then a few weeks later my thoughftul friend Kelly sent a note and told me she was giving our girls a dog body pillow; a friend of hers made some for her pup and she gifted one to our Callie and Cocoa.

I knew when this big baby arrived, Callie would love it.

It’s got (I think) rice in the ends to weigh it down a bit so it stays put. 
Callie was a fan in the first few minutes of it being in place. She gave it a great review on Yelp. 

And of course the Cocoa bean loves it as well. They are good at taking turns in the bed….who ever gets there first gets it. “Shotgun”!!!

I don’t recall if I shared, but Cocoa spent Thanksgiving in the hosptial being treated for pancreatitis. While there, they found that she (possibly) has some growths near her pancreas. We’re not diving into that as she is past her ‘sell by date’ at 13 and 1/3 years old. (that’s really ancient for a boxer) She made a full recovery and has been doing pretty good….until this past week.
Her belly seems very unhappy and we’re taking it one day at a time.

Have a fabulous Thursday….may you have a comfy-cozy bed too.
