Settle in, Jessie, I have a story for you.

Really? I loves stories! Is it about a dragon? Or an ogre? Or--

Jessie! Let me tell the story! Okay, once upon a time, there was a beeYOUtiful cowgirl. 

Oh Casey! I love cowgirls! They're so much better than silly princesses.

Listen to the story, Jessie.

Sorry! I'm listening. Look how good I'm listening.

Okay. SO. Once upon a time--

You said that part already!

--There was a beeYOUtiful but annoying cowgirl.

That part sounds a little rude.

And she ended up in a skeery place. She was away from her family and the wonderful life she was SUPPOSED to have. Instead, she was all alone in a cold concrete cage at a place called a SHELTER.

CASEY! Those places are skeery! Does the cowgirl escape?? Does a handsome prince come???

Just listen to the story, Jessie!!

Ow! Sorry, I'll listen, I'll listen!

ANYway, the cowgirl didn't know what would happen to her. But THEN a magic fairy godmother appeared in the shelter. And she said, "Hello, beeYOUtiful cowgirl! I'm from LBR, and I'm here to rescue you!"

CASEY!!!!!! I know this story!!! I know who the cowgirl is!!!

Look, it's ME! I was the cowgirl in the skeery shelter, and the magic LBR godmother came to take me away!! I was so skeered still. I wasn't sure what was going to happen!

That's right, kid, but the LBR godmother took you away, got your vet care, and got you all ready to come meet your foster home. Which was US.

It was wonderful, Casey! And that's why yesterday was my birthday, right? 

Yes. You turned three years old, two years since you left that skeery shelter.

And we lived happily ever after, didn't we, Casey?

Of course we did, Jessie. That's how all good stories end.

....Is she asleep at last?

Dawg, this storytelling is hard work!

 Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESSIE!!! We're so glad to have you in our lives. Here's to our happily ever after!

So sue me!

So I'm thinking I may be in need of Ernie the Attorney. Isn't improper use of one's image something you can sue for? Take a look at this!

They even called it "Casey"! And I was obviously the model for it. Whaddaya think, folks? Should I sue?

We're still here!

Sorry for all the silence lately, folks! Momma took a few days off work and thought she'd spend plenty of it updating for us, but she didn't read or post once! We spent some extra time at Auntie's, and she and Momma got exhausted doing the Student Day at their Renny-sauce faire. Plus she celebrated Mother's Day with Grandma! So sorry for all the silence. We'll start reading again, but if there was anything big we needed to know about, please let us know!!

We could really REALLY use some POTP today. Yesterday Jessie went back to her kidney specialist for another blood test to see if her daily camel treatment and new meds have had the desired effect. We'll get the results sometime today, so please cross your paws!

Edit: Good news! Jessie's kidney levels are dropping, though they're not at the level we want them to be yet. She needs to get her creatinine to under 3 and BUN to under 50. Currently they've dropped from 6.1 to 4.4 and 76 to 52. So doing good, but not there yet. We're going to keep doing the daily camel treatments and test again in two more weeks. Hopefully we'll be at the magic levels by then and she can drop to camel treatments just three days a week. Thanks for the POTP!

Good news!

Momma said she could use some GOOD news this week. We headed back to the specialist again -- this time to check on my heart instead of Jessie's kidneys! You might remember that a few months ago I was diagnosed with a heart arrhythmia. I take medicine every day to control it. This week we were checking to see if it was doing its job.

I was a VERY good boy in the waiting room and had another momma telling her pup to behave like me. BOL. Then I went back to see all my girlfriends and get the EKG test on my heart. And....

PAWFECT!! My medicine is working grreat, which means my heart is pumping away like normal. Momma and I were SUPER happy.

We even stopped at Sonic on the way home. I got a celebratory cheeseburger, and she got a celebratory shake. Woohoo!!!

The most comfortable spot in the world

Touching your momma is always the most comfortable spot anywhere.
