The Joy of Remembering on Memorial Day

As we all celebrate Memorial Day with picnics, celebrations, family and friends, let us all paws to remember all of our fallen service men, women and canines. Yes, many of my fellow dogs have given their lives to protect us from dangers to these great United States both foreign and domestic.
My dear friend Emma from the blog My GBGV Life highlighted a very important bill we all should help get passed. Here is what she said in her blog: " In order to better recognize the contributions of America’s military dogs, the ASPCA has introduced Bill S2134, the “Canine Members of the Armed Forces Act.” This Act will reclassify Military Working Dogs as “canine members of the armed forces” instead of “equipment” and will institute programs to assure their health and well-being after retirement from service- all without using federal funds. Please help us honor these wonderful dogs by contacting your Senators and urging them to cosponsor this Act.  For more information go to:"
God Bless America!!

The Joy of Twirling - Being Sick and Rejoicing When Healed

The end of last week was not one of my best times lately. I felt a bit under the weather Thursday all day, with my meals not agreeing with me. Mommy was concerned and made me rice for me to eat Friday because I got sick. Not my favorite, but I was agreeable. 

I went to bed Wednesday night feeling even worse. I took the night off as Nurse Pixel and Mommy watched over me. Then I awoke in the middle of  the night sick as a dog! We were up until after 3am with me helpless as a little puppy and in need of TLC, which Mommy is an expert at.

Needless to say, after a night like THAT, Mommy put the kibosh on me being allowed to eat ANYTHING on Friday. I woke up the next morning at my usual time, not thinking at all about what had occurred all night long. I ran into the kitchen for my morning breakfast. Low and behold, Mommy had placed a note in the little dog food box to ensure that I received no food from anyone. NO FOOD?? How long would that be...forever? Doesn't she know that a little dog's life revolves around mealtime?

I was still feeling bad, so I took Friday off too and just rested. My sister kitty, Snowflake, stepped in as surrogate nurse to watch over Mommy, who was watching over me because I was so ill. I am laying under that brown blanket in the background, resting and wondering if I'd ever see food again. 

After a day of near starvation, allowed only chicken broth and the assurance that one day I'd get food again, I was allowed a diet of rice on Saturday. The meals started out super small. Being a nurse I technically knew it was to make sure I could keep it down, but as  a dog, the meals seemed pretty paltry. But I got fed a little more often than normal, and I was feeling a lot better by Saturday afternoon, and had finally turned a corner. I felt much better by Saturday night. 

Sunday, Mommy and I were so happy about me being well again, and after two days of paltry meals that consisted of rice and chicken broth, I was thrilled to finally get a real meal. I felt strong, was playful, and even wanted to practice my tricks with Mommy. So, we joyfully practiced one of our favorites of mine...Twirling! So, Sunday, we danced, grateful that this little girl got well and was healed!
Make sure that you dance and twirl and smile whenever you get the chance...

The Joy of Mommy Playing with Me - Getting Over Boredom

This is the face of BOREDOM. It has been two weeks now since Mommy had surgery. Of course I am taking great care of her and I am with her every moment being a nurse Pixel, which indeed I love...but all work and no play is boring. Obviously Mommy could sense it...
Suddenly out of nowhere, my toy named Blue sneaked up on my left..."Pixel.....Blue toy wants to tell you's a secret!"

"Hi Blue!! You have a SECRET to tell me? What kind of a secret?"
"It's really important, so you have to come close." "Really close like this?" Pixel asked. "Yeah, really SUPER close."
"Okay, I'm ready. What's the secret?"
"I love you Pixel!!" Kiss, kiss, kiss! "Let's play!!"
We played and had a great time for quite a while with Mommy on the bed.
By the end of it, I was exhausted, but I was a very happy, definitely NOT bored, little girl. 
Moral of the story: Always make sure to find moments to play. Don't let yourself get too bored, find ways to have fun and lighten up the day!

The Joy of being Nurse Pixel - Caring for Mommy after Surgery

Nurse Pixel plans out her day of caring for her Mommy who had surgery last week.
First things first, check Mommy's pulse and other vitals.
Next, take off hat (hard to work in) and ask how Mommy is feeling.
Say a little paw prayer that Mommy will heal quickly and have a good, pain free day.
Watch Mommy eat her omelet and make sure she finishes it. She needs her strength!
Help Mommy pre-wash the fork. (Multitasking here)
Promise I will be with her through every minute of her recovery.
Make Mommy smile and laugh as only a Nurse Pixel can!
