GOOD EASTER NEWS!!

Mommy's eyes started leaking this morning because the man with the long coat called real early in the morning to give her good news. He told her all the poky's he gave me came back good. The treats I get each morning are still working good inside me and nothing has to change. He said the red stuff inside of me is even better than before, so I dont have to go visit him for a long time. And he told her that if I my leggies move slower I can start getting some more treats called TRAMADOL which will make the hurties a lot less. Mommy was so impressed that he took the time to call her on this special day to give us the news. And that he talked about my visits being over a year, which means I have a lot more time to spend with Mommy and daddy.

After they got home from their Sunday home, they gave me big hugs. They told me that today is a special day because of a man long time ago who came from a Rainbow Ridge to visit us. He was a really good man and people were mean to Him and hurt Him a lot. He went away for a little while, then came back and invited all His friends to come back to a  Rainbow Bridge for hoomans where they will always be healthy and happy, like the place us furries go when we leave our forever homes. Mommy told me that today was a good day to hear the news that I will live longer, because today is the day that hoomans celebrate new and eternal life.



 
 

Then we went to play outside.
I showed them what a healthy active princess I am, by searching out a crawly thing.

They thought I was just being silly, then daddy saw the stripe on a crawly thing. Mommy got nervous that I would fall into the big water bowl, so she made me come inside. Mommy's are always overprotective!

HAPPY EASTER EVERY DOGGY AND HOOMAN!
HE HAS RISEN!
BARK INDEED!

IT'S ALL GOOD!

This morning when daddy took me out to go potty he did a weird thing. When I skawted, he tried to put something under me. That scared me so I stopped. Then he looked inside and didnt look too happy. But mommy took the few drops and put in another bowl and put in the cold box in the smelly room. That was real odd!

Later Mommy and Daddy took me for another ride. When we got there, I knew something where we were because I smelled all the other furries. I heard mommy tell the lady at the window that we were following up and she gave her the little bowl they had this morning. They had me walk onto a big shiny thing and mommy said I lost weight. Last time i was there, I was 145 pounds, and today I was 135. Do I look skinnier?

We went into a little room and mommy and daddy sat down and seemed real relaxed, so I layed down too.
Then a man came into the room with a long coat. He petted me all over and it felt real good. He said I was pretty healthy for an old lady.   He said my teeth were pretty clean and he was happy with how well I was doing. Mommy was really glad he didnt have any concerns. Mommy and daddy told him about my late night accidents.She had him explain to daddy why they are out of my control. I am so embarrased, but he told them that is had something to do with age and my knee's hurting. So he is going to give me some more medicine to help me feel a little bit better. I try real hard to be a good girl and go outside, but sometimes it just surprises me and pops out. He said that will happen more when I am sleeeping or relaxed since my brain doesnt talk to certain muscles during that time. I was taken away from mommy and daddy so the man could poke me with something and cut my nails. He told mommy he would call her later to tell her if the inside of me was still doing good. But mommy seemed real happy when we left.

While we were there, mommy got real sad when she saw some hoomans crying. She said that their furry was going to rainbow bridge and the hoomans were very sad. And then another lady outside was crying by her machine and we saw some people come get something out of her car. Mommy told daddy there was so much sadness that we should just sit outside and be quiet. Daddy petted me a lot and told me that he and mommy will be sad too when I go to Rainbow Bridge. But until then.... we will play, sleep and love!

BARK!!! Sasha the Princess

We're Home!

video
We are home now. Man, is it hard being a good Princess for all my fans. I have slept straight through the last two days. Even Mommy said she has bliss tears on her paws and walks funny. I am glad mommy and daddy took me with them on their adventure.
Note from mommy:
We are used to getting a lot of attention having the princess with us, but it was CRAZY for those two days. So to fill everyone in... Sasha stayed in the Disney Kennels, while we hit the parks. We went back every 4-5 hours, and took her out for a walk around the entrances, rested for a bit, pottied and fed her. She seemed to adjust well inside the kennel, despite the much barking going inside. She had a small caged area and her own bed to sleep on. The potty area behind the kennel was astro turf, which Sasha snubbed her nose at, so we had to find little dirt area's around the entrance for the princess to utilize. Because of her knee arthritis, she gets herself up by her front legs only. When she is tired, she struggles and usually ends up scraping her "heels" and making them bleed. So we put tissue around the scrapes and then wrapped her ankles with some leopard print duct tape. And of course, she wore a rubber bootie on her right paw, to protect against dragging and making her nails bleed. She was geared up for safety, which led to many questions.

We had to practice our graciousness by smiling and answering the same questions over and over...
Yes, she is a Great Dane. No, she is not as big as most, she is smaller.
No, she is not hurt, she just has duct tape bandaids on her heels to keep from scraping them
Yes, she is older and no she does not have hip dysplasia, she has arthritis
Yes, we know a Dane's life is short, but she has made it to 10 1/2 and is still going strong
No, she wont bite you. Yes, you can pet her
No, we dont put a saddle on her
No, she doesnt sleep with us or between us, she has her own bed
Oh, how nice, your aunt, uncle, neighbor, sister, grandparents (fill in the blank) had a Great Dane too.

We totally accept the fact of having a large dog will gather attention and will NEVER be rude when people want to meet her. But I have to admit, sometimes you just want to be invisable. Especially when we are trying to get her to "go potty" or eat without distractions. However, she was very well behaved and took it all in stride. She loved walking at the same pace as the crowd entering the gates. I had to laugh, as she just looked around as if to say "Im with the pack... we are  migrating... what a pack!". So cute!
