Brinks n Bella update

Good sign today brinks n Bella seem to br getting their appetite back so long as I sit there with them as they eat....I also took them to our former house so they could run around the backyard n that perked them right up....Brinksey winksey rolled around in poop hoping I wouldn't put him back in the car n take him back to our garage but plan backfired on him n not only did we have to come back he is now also taking a bath.......but they seem to be feeling better. Can't say the same for me but seeing them happier makes me feel better.....

Thankful hugs to everyone listening to me still.....one day at a time is what I keep telling myself........

Oh, there is nothing that makes me feel better than a good roll in poop. Of course I prefer the goose poop, but sometimes out of desperation, I will settle for anything. You go Brinkly.

We are so glad to hear that you two are eating better. Now if you can get your human to eat something.

We think of you every day and our thoughts and prayers continute to be uppermost for us.

Love
Bert and My Vickie

It's good to hear from you. I'm so happy that Brinks and Bella are eating more regularly and hopefully they will pick that back up on their own without you having to sit with them. It is good to know that they have no ill feelings toward where the house use to be. There were good memories there, too...so maybe Brinks and Bella are telling you that they still remember the good times.
Much Love,
Mama Mindy of The Slimmer Puggums

Team Beaglebratz here - mom Kim, Shiloh'n Shasta.
We are new followers - wanted to stop by the last day or so but just had a hard time finding any words to say. I wish we were closer so I could give you a big hug and sit by to listen. I am just so very sorry this happened.

Such a good sign that Brinkley and Bella are eating some better. And loved hearing that they feel like playing;

Yep, it is one day at a time - maybe sometimes you will feel like you have to take it one hour at a time and that is ok too. Take good care of yourself and let Brinks and Bella do what our furry 4-legged family members do best - comfort and be there for you when you need it.

Thank goodness for a dog's resilience! They will be your shining stars to guide you through all this. I'm glad you were able to give them a good stretch so they could feel better. One day at a time. Definitely one day at a time. Many hugs to you...

Hi Sandra,Bella and Brinkley winskey. Its me Tweedles.
Here is some sugar for you!
Getting excited and running in the poop is a good thing!
Bath are good too- don't worry - you won't be clean too long.
Everyday- when I eat my foods- I save a bite for all of you. I hope you like to eat what I do.
I saved it with love.
I am also keeping you in my hearts. Reach out and feel it..
And together we take one day at a time.
love

HoundDogMom said...

We are so glad to hear that Brinks and Bella are getting a little more bounce in their step. I am sure it was so good for them to have some of their old smells come back to their noses at their yard and a good poop roll is always good for the sole. BOL

Sandra, I continue to lift you in prayer. And baby steps are good and nothing wrong with one day at a time. Just remember to take care of yourself and stop and breath here and there.

Eating is definitely good. One day at a time...lots of hugs to Brinks, Bella, and you!

JD and Max said...

We're so pleased to here that Brinksy and Bella re feeling better - you know, we've never rolled in smelly stuff before, we think we might have to give it a go as it sound FUNB! Brinsky - you could be our role model (although we're not sure about the bath part of it....!)

You are constantly in our thoughts - we wish you could give you a huge, enormous 'in the fur' hug! Please take time to heal - it will take time - a lot of time - but always remember you're not going through this alone, your blogging family is here with you and will be every step of the way.

I am so relieved that they are eating. Dogs are very resilient creatures. There joy in the simple things, like a good roll in poop!, is such an inspiration.

Watching the pups play can do wonders for my mood. We have close to a foot of snow here so we have 1 that is thrilled bounding and running all out, 1 that tolerates if he thinks there is a treat in it later and 1 that looks at me like I've lost my mind when I open the door.

Enjoy those little glimpses of happy!
