Weekend wrap-up!

JD - Hi everyone - just a quick update today as we've been very busy working on Shelby's auction page - please do go over and have a nose around if you haven't already done so!

Max - We've got some great stuff coming in for it - we're very excited! We're also going to have a raffle - prize to be announced! - which will be picked out of a hat. Everyone who becomes a follower of Shelby's Auction Page will be entered into the raffle so make sure you become a follower!

JD - It's taking us a bit longer than we thought it would (like most things!) to get the page set up, what with having to link e-mails and add
PayPal buttons and that sort of thing but we think we've got a layout that works now! We just need to drop in all auction items now, so please keep your generous contributions coming in!

Max - Also, we've been a bit
pre-occupied because JD had his stitches out and his cone off on Friday - we had the GREATEST walk ever straight afterwards, but sadly JD started limping again on Saturday. FH and MH took him straight back to the Vets who couldn't find anything wrong with him. They were told that we might have overdone it with playing like maniacs straight after the removal of the cone and the stitches!

JD - I still can't walk very well - my paw is very sore but I'm not sure why. I just hope I don't have another seed in it that's going to fester and flare up. The humans can't see anything wrong on any part of my leg or paw and neither can I...

Max - ....I can't either and I've checked your paw a few times!

JD - I just know it hurts and I wish it would stop 'cos I wanna play
zoomies and bitey face again. It was SO much fun playing with you again on Friday! Here is a photo of us playing 'mad bitey-face' around FH's legs, he he he! We often play around her feet as it's our way of inviting her to join in, although strangely she never takes us up on the offer.

JD - "Take that Max, bwahahahaha!" Max - "Come on FH - join in!"

Max - It was wonderful! We were so fast we were a BLUR! I miss bitey face - sigh....!

JD - Me too Max. The humans know I'm not faking the limp as they've seen me do it on
puppycam (the indoor security camera they use to tune in on us whenever they have to abandon us to do un-puppy-related activity!)

Max - Before we leave we wanted to show you a photo of the type of horrible grass seeds that we get here that cause huge problems for us puppies.

These particular grass seeds are like darts and they're barbed too so once they've pierced the skin they can burry deep -ouch!

JD - Apparently, removing grass seeds is what pays the Vets mortgages during the summer in the UK, it's SUCH a common problem! They get in paws, noses, ears, armpits - it's horrible!

These seeds can be very large, as FH demonstrates here! They're particularly dangerous when they've become crispy in the sun as they are so dry they become as sharp as needles.

Max - Finally, here is a photo of a jellyfish we found on the beach on Friday, before JD started limping again.

JD - FH kept shouting as us to stay away from it. Well, considering it looked like something she' just sneezed up we were VERY happy to oblige!

"Atishoo! Bless you FH!! He he he!!"

Max - Yeah - as if I was going to put my nose into THAT! Sheesh - humans!!

Those grass seeds look ferocious! You guys take care.

We always play bitey face around her legs. Then she can only get those blurred action shots like your FH got. Hehehe

We're heading over to the Shelby site.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

PeeS What KIND of jelly was that named after.

Nellie and Calvert said...

Hi Boys,

Sorry to hear the JD is still limping, perhaps he's just tender? Was a final x-ray done to make sure everything else was ok? I'm sure your FH has thought of it all... I'm just double checking.

Nellie & Calvert would like for your FH to try steak; apparently it has some special healing powers on pups!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

Mack said...

Oh my Dog - that seed looks like a monster - kinda like that jellyfish!

The auction page is looking t-riffic!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Hi boys - am so sorry to hear that JD's paw is sore again! I do hope it is just because you have overdone it - I think that's very likely coz I would think the area around the wound is still tender and healing and so any rough impact might tear the healing tissues and cause inflammation again...maybe try to take things slower, JD, and ease back into it! :-)

That jellyfish looks so cool! I see a few on the beaches here sometimes but mostly little ones - but Hsin-Yi says Australia has some of the most poisonous jellyfishes in the world so she always makes me stay well away! :-)

Am off to check out Shelby's auction page now! I've worked out what my donation is going to be but I think I might not be able to put together a photo & description until next weekend coz my humans have to go and buy it first and they need to go into the shops downtown to find the things. But will try and get it all sorted as soon as possible!

Yikes, those seeds are humongous! Be very careful!! I hope you just overdid the zoomies - you are SOOO fast! Please let us know how you're doing. In the meantime, I'm off to the auction site and to think up something good to put in as my item!


mayziegal said...

Oh, JD! I'm Most Sorry your paw is still hurting. You poor thing! I hope, hope, hope you just overdid the playing. I know it's hard but you just gotta take it easy for a little while longer.

We DO have those grass things here, too. We call 'em foxtails and I've heard stories abouts dogs getting them in their ears and nose and stuff. I'm gonna try to stay far, far away from them from now on!

Thank you again for all your hard work on Shelby's auction. We're putting some stuffs together and we'll let you know what it is soon!

Wiggles & Wags,

Yikes! I hope it's just a bit of overdoing things! Those seeds look vicious! I'd be pretty worried about getting too close to those, too!

Oh dear, Max and JD, we are so sorry to hear this. JD, we sure hope this is just a temporary setback and that all will be well tomorrow.

Oh dis auction is an incrediblely smart thing of you guys and FH! Ya'll haves been so busy to construct all dat stuffs. Ya'll is awesome!!!!!
Mum was thinking bouts you da other day cuz Brudder Albert was limping (and he ain't a faker neither)but it wasn't his leg, it was his paw and he was hurtin sumptin awfuls. Mum took him to da vet and they THINK he may haves stepped on a wasp. Don't really care what they think...mum wants to know what they KNOW fur sures and not a guess.
Anyways, dude, you so gots to take it easy fur awhile so your FH don't go crazy again.


HOPE said...

Like that bitey-face blurr!!

Wow does that thing look ouchie! Yea and gotta watch out for those jellyfish..they are'nt for you!

My folks know about the VET too...like my dad person says..I just made HER NICE FANCY CAR PAYMENT!

We have a good vet so that's okay...maybe it gets her "racer" to the office quicker if I need her!

Pkg come yet?? Wish my MP knew about the auction she could have added another...

Paws UP!

Twix said...

Gosh! I sure hope I don't get bitten by one of those nasty grass seeds. Those look like they really hurt! I'm gonna make my way over to Shelby's page and take a look around.

parlance said...

I'm sorry to hear JD is limping again. I hope it passes quickly and the zoomies and bitey-face can begin!

Oskar said...

That grass does look rather foreboding, as does that sea creature! I have coughed up things that look like that & only occasionally do I eat them back up!
