Good Morning All

Just to let you know there is a new "lady" at Ragom. She really did not want to be called a senior. She arrived Saturday and let's say she had a tough life. She is 11 years old and was used as a breeder. After visiting the vet there were a few items to fix. I don't know where to start. She has infection around her privates, probably caused by being dirty, ear infections, a couple of tumors in mammary, very overweight, a hot spot, infected tooth and obviously not spayed.

That was enough of the negatives. When she arrived, she had been in a car for hours and after getting out of car she came up to me with tail wagging. She got in my auto and off we went to my home, another two hours. Upon arriving, she did her duty and met the two resident dogs with a bunch of sniffing and tail wagging again. I was told she was not house trained, but that turned out to be wrong.  She has not had accident yet!!!  In fact she has been on free roam in our home and no problems. She is now on meds for ears, infections, and let's all hope and pray when they look at the tumors there is no cancer. The vet checked her joints and hips and found nothing wrong, and her blood work came out great.

With all her problems, she is still walking around wagging tail and looking for attention [ just touching her seems to make her feel good]. As you can tell she is not ready for adoption yet, but when she is, somebody that wants a, shall we say older laid back "Lady", she would make a great friend and love to have a furever home.

She would love to have a sponsor, her vet bills are a little high. I will update you all next week on her tests. Wish her best of luck.

Good morning

Happy Spring to all !!!!

I thought everybody would like to see the "Princess" helping clear leaves out of the flower bed. Well I guess she got a little tired, and decided to take a short nap. Other than her and I getting a little slower, the warmth and sun feels great, and it sure is nice getting outside.

Just a picture of Princess 09-168  guarding Grandmas shoe, or did she just borrow it to lay on?  As you all can tell, Princess is the same old Princess, still going slow, but smelling the roses as she goes. I have been having some back problems, so when we go for walks we travel about the same speed ,so that is working out just fine with her.

Funny that we are thinking winter, when it is 76 degrees out. We know it is coming and I hope everybody drives safe and enjoys the beauty of the snow.

Good Morning 

I was not a very good foster, I did not have a current picture entered in the Princess file. She had her 14th birthday August 1!!!!

She is doing fine, the weather is cooling off a little and both of us are more comfortable.  As you can see, the first picture is Princess meeting our new Great Grand Daughter, the second is "enough of that, I think I will take a nap." 

Hope everybody had a wonderful summer.

 Hello Everybody
           
I was thinking about the people that sometimes wonder what " The Golden Life" is. So I'm enclosing this photo of Princess.  She just got back from her 20 mile walk,[ In her mind only - really half mile]. She thought it would be only proper to get one of her toys and take a well deserved nap in the sun. This is the Golden Life at its best.

Princess and I hope everybody had a Merry Christmas and a Happy new year.  On the fist picture you can see Grandma and Princess opening one of her presents, the next picture shows Princess laying by the fireplace with her new toy. As you all know Princess has a large collection of them. Again she says you can't have too many. Hoping everybody has a good year ahead!

Hi Everybody

Princess just had her 13th birthday, and she wanted to show all her friends her new toy! As you all know from her other pictures, she hardly has any toys. I do not want to tell how many , in fact I don't even want to guess. I think enough, but she says you can never have too many.
See you all at the picnic!!! And do not forget the head rubs [for Princess].
     
A Big Thanks to her Sponsors and Friends!

Just a short update on our girl Princess 09-168. She wants everybody to know she is doing "very good". Still hunting for chipmunks and squirrels, as you can tell by her picture.

We increased her meds a little because this hot humid weather was bothering her arthritis, tell me about it. Other than that she is working on her svelte body, well that is her opinion. She hopes to see everybody at the picnic, you all know how she loves her head rubbed and scratched.

Good Morning All
Well the big weekend is over. After having two more dogs here you can imagine how tired Princess is. The first picture shows her looking for her "favorite" toy.  The second shows her saying "I think I will take a nap and figure it out later". We had to put her toys up for the weekend,  we had a dog visiting that chewed them.

As you all can see Princess is doing very good. Her walks are slowing down, maybe she just wants to go slow and smell nature. I have to tell everybody, she caught another chipmunk. She is just a born hunter, or the chipmunks are really not too sharp. I think she prefers the "born hunter".

Good Morning

Just a short update to let everybody know that Princess 09-168 is doing just great. Princess and Katie 09-257 and our dog went to my Daughter's home for three days when we were on a snowmobile trip. All five dogs, her two and our three got along great. Our Granddaughter had a "Blast" feeding and letting them all out in there back yard. Princess and Katie were the hit at the bus stop every morning. Our Daughter would walk to the stop, and all the kids had to pet and hug them. I can believe the two dogs were in heaven.

Princess is still walking her two miles a day, and her weight has leveled off. Princess and I are working on that. [both our weights]. She still has to be by a person so she can get her pets and head rubs in.

The one picture is her in heaven with my Granddaughter,another outside with Katie 09-257 and the one with the pinecone is a picture of her denying everything......"I did not get it out of basket, I did not carry it to the living room, and I did not start to chew on it."  She said a "Princess" would not do that.

Katie's 09-257 foster mom will be back in a few weeks and we will all miss her.

Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays to All!

Wanted to show everybody how Princess [09-168] looked out trying to find a tree. Well, she found a lot of critter smells, then two people and their two children. Princess went to her new "friends" and gave the "I'm Princess and you should pet me look." Well, it worked like usual.  She got her pets and I got to talk about Ragom.
Our tree is up and no problems with the dogs.

Princess would also like to tell her sponsors "Thank You". Her Ragom Golden life is really working out wonderful.

Hello All
I'm sure all of you have heard about Princess getting ready to bake some cookies. To those that do not know, Princess took a five pound bag of flour, and opened it in the middle of living room.  Nobody told her what to do next.  As you can tell by her photo there was some left over on her face after trying to brush it off. I do not want to say what the living room looked like. The other picture shows Princess in the paddle boat, she was not too happy so they never got out on lake.

Princess would like to thank all the people who gave rubs and also the couple that bought her a new toy at PetSmart.  Ragom had a real nice area set up, thanks to PetSmart and all the people that work there.

More adventures of Princess later

Just a quick update on Princess. As you can see she is in the lake and not real happy about getting her bath, that is our border collie getting wet and making sure she also will get attention [she hates water]. The other picture shows her in her favorite position in the living room.

It seems we are getting her pain meds adjusted, but had a setback when her back went out of joint, and she walked all hunched up. Luckily it seemed to correct itself with massage and a little time. Will have to watch that.

She set a new record at our home, by catching a chipmunk, she is the first dog to do that here. She wanted to take it in the house and seemed very proud. Let's say it was hard to get her to drop it. Somebody said it was because the chipmunks are young and almost tame. I said it was because she is a noble hunting dog [nobody believed it].

Good Morning,

I have been lax in Princess updates. We will start out by saying she is just a great girl!!  All her stitches and surgery marks are healed. She still has some healing on her leg from injection sights but they are healing and hair is growing back. Her morning walk is up to one and a quarter miles and her weight is down another 4lbs. You can tell she is getting stronger, she can go up and down from the bed, and the steps do not bother her. She can get into car without a boost now. As you can tell we are very proud of her.

She will now chase a ball [that is stretching the chase part a little] and go in lake to retrieve ball. She has gone in the lake now up to her belly, that is really not too deep, but she is getting more comfortable all the time. 

Anytime people come to our home, she is the same girl, wagging tail with toy in mouth and trying to get her head itched. Everyone says how nice she is. Princess would love to have a furever home to take her naps in, and give her big love to somebody.

A proud foster dad,
