I meant in trouble together

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

Haha! I have no doubt that those two found each other and are having a blast! They have a connection there and they are making sure we have a connection here. t just makes sense.  Those silly dogs sure do know how to work their magic from up at the bridge

Yep, getting in trouble without consequences  I’d the best part.

They certainly have intriguing ways to make sure that we both know they are still around.

❤❤❤   

Yeah, when you get a communication like this that is so brownie specific, it cannot be ignored. Nope, cannot be ignored😎   

It gave me chills head to toe when it happened, and it still does now everytime I think about it. Supposedly when somebody gets chills head to toe, it means the universe is validating a message so yeah, consider this a validation definitely

Brownie knows who to hang with to get the good stuff. He must really like deep poop, and also must have noticed  how pretty  Happy Hannah is!  He has always liked the ladies!

Ok Admin Guy, I just ordwred the twister puzzle, and a harness for Sassy and Max, and yes i went thru Tripawds to get to Amazon. Anytime I shop Amazon I of course go thru Tripawds first, even of its not pet stuff.

Karen, Elly and Sassy will have to have a match when the puzzle gets here. Even though I know Elly is going to leave Sassy in the dust. lol…By the way, what type is treat are you putting in the puzzle?

I swear every time I take a day off I spend money. I gotta stop. lol

Aww thank you so much for shopping through the links Nancy! I can’t wait to hear how Sassy and Max like it. The Twister has been completely redesigned, looks like even more fun. Maybe we can do a Twister Throw Down with all the doggies on Zoom?!

Hi Nancy,

I just use kibble for many of the puzzles including Twister.  I don’t like to use anything soft or crumbly (to messy) and Elly will work hard for kibble. It’s not the main food source for the dogs, Elly seems to think it is quite a treat smiley4.

Just be sure to account for the extra calories when adding food puzzles or toys.  Elly actually gets less food than Obie at meal time since we spend so much time on games/puzzles/training.

Can’t wait to see how you guys do with Twister!

Thanks for the tip

 Brownie and Max are both on a diet. I’m afraid I wasn’t paying attention to their weight while caring for Brownie. I got Max shaved and he looks like a very cute pot belly pig. Sassy is not too much over weight, but she could drop a couple of ponds. So kibble it is.

Sure Jerry, we can have a show down on zoom, but we all know Elly is going to leave us in the dust! lol…..But it would be fun!

I’ve had Pugs for 20+ years, lots of pot belly pig physiques over the years even without shaving smiley4

but we all know Elly is going to leave us in the dust! lol…

Don’t forget that Elly has at least a 3 year head start!

The Twister has been completely redesigned

I just looked at the new one- it is different…might need to get one of those so we are all playing the same game!

I can’t believe I wrote Brownie and Max need to loose weight. I meant Sassy and Max.

Sorry Sassy!

Oh I totally missed that! Too funny. I think Brownie was playing tricks on you to get back at Sassy for being so darn cute 😉
