It will all be okay. Somehow, these things work out. Dad will find work and Bella will be better soon. My pups and I are keeping our fingers and paws crossed for all of you.

Lots of wags and kisses to you all!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Oh soooo sorry to hear that dadish is off work. That does mean that he will be home a bit more with all of you. Out of every bad thing, good things come. I will cross my paws for new work for him.
Oh that is scary news for Bella the Beautiful. I know that lots of rest is very much important. That will be easy beclaws "the little ones" will see to that, obviously. Does Bella have to take pills to get rid of the worms???
I take a pill every month to keep me from getting them. Not all parts of the country are bothered by heartworm. We are in a bad area for them.
Will Bella be able to go for walkies and to grrreat places like you went to last weekend??
My mom has a furend whose dawg got the worms in the heart thingy. Her dog had to stay at the VET for 6 whole weeks. Then she was not allowed to go out unless on a leash. No walking. Just potty and back in. They had to keep the poor thingy leashed to the couch in the daytime and the bed at night. No moving around. NOW.... Linnie can run and play and you would never even know she was ever sick.
I know it is scary, butt I am sure Bella will be fine just like Linnie is.
I am going to stop now and cross my paws for a while. I am going to think very much good pawsitive crossed paws thought for each and every one of you!!! Love to all.

Oh, we are so sad to hear all of this. We will keep our paws crossed that Dad can find work and that Mom will be careful not to overdo it herself. And poor Bella, be sure to listen to what the vet says to do, we hear it is a very slow recovery from those nasty heartworms. Hugs to Bella, get better soon.

I my pittie friedns. Sorry for all the problems this wee and that Belloa got the wormies. She will be Ok but it takes time.

My neighbor, Brownie,a pit, got a new brother. His name is Smokey cause his coat is Smokey colored. He is 2 months old and Mommy has fallen in love with him. She dog sat him for a couple of hours when she was off Monday and said he is the cutes little dog she has ever seen. Mommy's camera was dead, exhausted battery, so she could get his picture just yet.

On march 31, I think, DROH will be working Paws in the Park in Pearland & if we take the kissing booth I'll be selling my kisses for a dollard each. Maybe you and your pawrents can come down. There are lots od doggies ans its always lots of fun. Mack came last year witrh hhis Mom. Have you met Mack yet? He is a BOSTON TERRIER and he has a blog too.


Sam said...

Oh wow - I am so sorry about your dad's job and Bella's sickies. Good thing you all have each other for support. We'll be here, too, if you ever need someone to paw at! Hope things get better soon.

Lorenza said...

I have my paws crossed and my mom is praying for you!
Sure this is not the best week, right?
I am sure your Dad will find another good job soon... meanwhile... enjoy him at home!
Mi Bella! I really hope you feel better soon!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Unknown said...

Oh, no. And I came over here so excited to tell you how much I laughed at the comment you left me today.
I'm sorry about the daddish and the Bella. I am however grateful that your daddy is healthy and well and that Bella is going to recover.
Give each other extra hugs tonight, family

Ina in Alaska said...

We are sad for Daddish but we know when one door closes, another opens! and sweet Bella, she will be in our hearts and prayers. Our mom sent Mommish and Daddish an email... xoxo Toby, Ginger, Jeter & Halle xoxo

Such sad news to hear! Paws crossed for Daddish and Bella.

You might want to check out the United Animal Nations grant program. They help people with animal medical expenses. They have helped quite a few rescues and families that I know of.

Ouch - rough week. Kodiak went through the heartworm treatments and is doing great!

Dexter said...

Oh ick! That is not good news. Fortunately, the bad worms have not diminished your loveliness in any way.


The Adventures of the LLB Gang said...

We have our paws crossed that the second part of the week goes MUCH better than the first part!


Mack said...

You are SO in our prayers. We just know everything will be fine (make that great!)
We are so hoping your family will get some EXTRA GOOD news the second half of this week!


Anonymous said...

Oh, dear little Pittie Pack. I am Most Sorry to hear of your recent woes! I will keep my paws crossed and wish very hard that your Daddish gets a new job soon. And until that happens, I hope you enjoy all the extra time with him.

And my mom wanted me to tell you that she used to volunteer for a doggie rescue and they saw lots of doggies with heartworm. And even though the treatment is icky, every single one of 'em got better after. So don't fret too very much, dear ones.

Wiggles & Wags,

Tucker said...

Oh no. My sweet Bella has the sickies, that is terrible. I hope it isn't as bad as some puppers have it. Does Bella have to stay still for a long time? I have a lab doggie in my first doggie class that was heartworm positive and she had to stay in her crate for 4 weeks while the treatment was done, she had them really bad. I take heartguard all year long and because I'm so big it costs momma extra money paper cause I need two boxes. Ah, Mango must need 3! We have really bad mosquitos here and they carry it. I didn't think the buggies were so bad there in Texas. Please get better my Bella and tell your Daddish to keep his head up.

woof - Tucker

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

Awww, so sorry to hear about your daddy's job, and Beautiful Miss Bella. Maybe when she feels better she can earn some extra monies by being a Supermodel..?
Sending love and kisses,

Amy & the house of cats said...

Oh we are so sad to hear about the bad week you have all had! First the layoff, then heartworm. Well, the good news is that your dad can find a new job (maybe a much better one - you never know what will happen) and Bella can be treated. We are sending lots of purrs and prayers to all of you - we hope things get better very quickly!

Sagira said...

Wow, sorry to hear about all that bad news. I hope your dad is able to go back soon or find a new job. :(

Very sorry to hear about Bella's heartworms. Do you know how bad they are? Sometimes if they are not too bad you can just treat them with heart worm prevention for 2 years and that takes care of them. Hopefully they are not too bad.

Moose said...

So very sorry to hear both of these dreadful things :-( I hope things turn around soon but I bet it is awfully overwhelming to get the two at the same time. Glad Bella is eating again. Chicken and rice is a great thing. Even for humans to me it is comfort food!
Hang in there!

Getting laid off makes a person feel like crap! Been there! Hopefully you get unemployment (it helps). I was employed by a company for 21 years when I was let go but looking back; they did me a favor. I currently clean houses and it pays surprisingly well. As an added bonus, I don't have to put up with office politics anymore! I hope things work out for you!

Unknown said...

Okay... I'm just catching up.. wow when it rains it does pour. That really sucks daddish was laid off. I know he is quite talented and find a new job soon. And miss bella... please get better soon! Keep eating that chicken.. yummers.
