We Gots Snow!!!

Finally, the day we have all been waiting for in our house!  The first snow of the season!  Hopefully not the last, but we’re pushing into Springtime now, so it’s hard to tell.

It has only lightly covered the ground but is supposed to snow more tonight.  Riley LOVES snow!  So does Chloe, but she’s old now and doesn’t get as excited for it as she used to.  Here’s a short (very short) video I took of Riley running around in it.  Ignore the peeing at the end…

Poor Little Chloe

We need the “Power of the Paw” for poor little Chloe.  The poor gal went to the V-E-T the other day because we thought she had ear infections.  Well, she does have ear infections, but that’s the least of her problems.

While she was there, they did a urinalysis (she is prone to bladder infections and had surgery to remove bladder stones in 2004 or 2005) AND they biopsied 3 fatty tumors on her body.  The fatty tumors turned out to just be…well, fatty tumors…that are benign.

We got a message on our answering machine yesterday from the V-E-T.  It seems Chloe has another bladder infection and the V-E-T said that makes 3 bladder infections in the last 4 months.  So she has to go back to the dreaded V-E-T again this coming Thursday (2/17/2011) for an X-ray to see if she has bladder stones again, a urine culture to see if she has some kind of super resistant bug that the antibiotics are not killing, and an ultrasound to see if she has a mass…which would most likely mean some kind of cancer.

Chloe’s typical perch.

Chloe was our first (and only) family dog.  She’ll be 13 this year.  We got her when I was 12 or 13.

This was Riley the other day when Chloe was gone to the V-E-T.  She was looking for her best pal!

 And Grandma (good, good Grandma!) got a few pictures of Riley in the snow yesterday morning before she went to work.  We didn’t get much and it was pretty much all gone by noon.  This was the only picture where Riley was standing still.  That’s her nasty rope that she’s got in her mouth…the rope that she’s OBSESSED with!

Wubba…What Wubba?

I got a little sidetracked posting those two posts about therapy dogs, but I wanted to show you what Riley’s Wubba looked like on day 3 of her having it…

She then proceeded to completely tearing that little tennis ball apart.  There was only about half and inch of the shell of it left when she was done with it.  She has been enjoying playing with the big squeaky ball though.

And this is just proof that she follows me around…EVERYWHERE…even the bathroom.
We got about an inch of snow this morning, but not enough to even delay or close anything down.  I, unfortunately, didn’t get a chance to get a picture of it because I was trying to hurry to get to a doctor’s appointment and now it’s all melted.  😦
