The first Snowfall was perfect.
Just a dusting and it actually seemed warmer once it snowed!
Are you ready for a blustery winter???
Watch your paws on those salty sidewalks!

There is one less week between Turkey Day and Christmas, so time to put up that tree!
Dads and I decided to go Artificial this year since we will be traveling quite a bit.
They had wine, I had biscuits.
We collect ornaments from our travels, so it’s fun to reminisce.
Last year I had made my own ornament which I got to hang this year.
I blogged about that process last year, so if you want to make one yourself, check out that old post!
Happy Tree Trimming everybody!

It’s been 4 weeks since I had been diagnosed with disc problems in my neck.
And today, I’m off the pain meds and the doc says I am off strict rest!!!!!
So I’m taking it to the streets and I couldn’t be happier!
Had a great walk. I saw crazy people, good and hideous fashions, and…
Christmas Trees!!!! The vendors have set up shop, so Tis the Season.
See you on the streets, again soon!!!!!

Turkey Day is fast approaching, so keep in mind that while you may be gobbling up the pumpkin pie and chewing on a drumstick, there are a couple of things to be aware of when sharing this feast with us dogs!
For one, NO Cooked Bones! Believe me, I would love to rip that turkey leg right off the table and chow down, but turkey bones can splinter and cause some digestive damage to us. We both know it’s tempting, but don’t let us have them. Feed me all the turkey you want, but watch the bones. Also, watch the SKIN. It’s extremely high in fat and can be hard for many dogs to digest. And high fat can also lead to Pancreatitis, or just alot of farting too!
Secondly, NO NUTMEG! I know you are thinking, why on earth would I feed my dog nutmeg, but it is often found as a spice in pumpkin pie and sweet potatoes. It can cause seizures or central nervous system issues if ingested, maybe even death. Yikes! The sweet potatoes and the pumpkin are fine in moderation, but not if spiced up!
And Lastly, NO ALCOHOL!. I once knew a girl dog upstairs named Molly who used to “LOVE BEER”, as her owner would put it. Hops can be toxic to dogs. And, I’m not saying that it is what caused her untimely death, but she did pass away at an early age. We do miss you Molls.
So have fun with your families and you can overindulge a little, it’s supposed to be a feast! But stay away from the above for us dogs.

For the past two months, I have been living in silence.
Dads have been trying to figure out how I suddenly couldn’t hear them anymore, and during my Emergency Vet visit for my Disc problem we learned something.
There are many topical ear medications that can cause hearing loss in dogs. Tri-otic and Otomax are two that are fairly commonly used medications that can do this. Anything with Gentomycin in it would also be on that list.
I had medication put in my ears in September, and since then my hearing has gone, so we’re thinking that could be the cause.
So question your Vet before they put anything in your ears.
If it contains Gentomycin you might want to consider your options.
