Tucker the Wonder Dog...and of course Baby Afton....

Of course, no post would be complete without a picture of baby Afton...what a cutie!
Reilly....one of the few pictures of him actually lying still...he's still a pup at heart!


Tucker and his diaper......poor guy.....not very dignified....

That fur is so silky.....a very majestic head...




The other off white cloth at the end of his body is the sock we have to keep duct taped to his tail....his tail still hasn't healed from his last 'happy tail' episode...



Tucker the Wonder dog is still hangin' on......although we're not sure for how long. I took some pictures of him....just in case.....one of them isn't a real good shot of him but shows the diaper that he's forced to wear....the poor guy continually tries to relieve himself, a number of times...wherever he is in the house where the urge hits him. He finished the pills that helped his bladder to contract yesterday so now it's a waiting game to see if it'll work on it's own or shut down again. I've been on a couple of forums...they kind of make you feel guilty that you're not doing more....taking him to a teaching hospital....taking him to a behaviourist....I can't even afford a behaviourist for my kids!
Yesterday, everybody but myself went to the Christmas celebration for my husband's side of the family. I stayed home with Tucker.....part of me didn't mind,...I knew it would be too much stress on him to leave him at home .....but part of me was quite bitter....I was in pain...the chiropractor says I've put out a couple of discs....I wasn't pleased with being left with two large dogs to take care of...one being sick...on my own....it was a quiet day......nobody fighting over who's turn it was to play the WII......that's what the kids got for Christmas...they agreed to a joint gift. Praise the Lord it wasn't like the kids over at Home Sanctuary...they did a skit about asking for a baby brother or sister....Rachel has found herself to be with child at the age of 45...you go girl....not for me! Putting diapers on Tucker, by myself was enough, thank you very much!


A very Happy New Year to you all!







So, I guess we'll just have to see how the next day or two go..........

Our dog Rocky looks a lot like Tucker when Rocky's had his hair clipped. I don't think he's as silky, though. Cute animals, and babies.

We have an old yellow lab and we feel quite guilty that he is last on our list for vet visits etc. He has a cyst on his leg that is ugly but no painful....therefore he must live with it. Sorry, doggy, but the people here have to come first.

The diaper will be his next fashion accessory and I dread that day. I can see how you would feel a bit put out having to watch the dogs. But yes, no WII arguments!!

We are still getting used to the whole baby idea....getting very excited about the thought! Crazy.
