Meet Fern!

I'm very happy to introduce the newest member of the Hunter household, Fern! She'll be coming home on Monday! She'll never replace Fizzy. No one ever could. But we need a new baby to love, and here she is!

Fern will probably eventually have her own blog once I hear her voice.

I know some people think it's too soon.  That we should wait until we've properly grieved.  But we can't.  A house truly isn't a home without a dog, and this doesn't lessen my love for Fizzy, because God knows how much we adored him.  Fern will help heal our hearts, but Fizzy is permanently wedged in there.

Friday, December 25, 2015

It's with an extremely heavy heart that I let you all know that we let Fizzy go today. He was the sweetest most loving Pooh I could have ever asked for. Run free and breath easy Fizzy. I'll see you again.

I'm Doin Ok!

I'm doing ok, pals.  I went back to the vet lady on Friday, and she's real happy with how I looked and how I was acting.  Way more energy for this old man!  The vet said that's cause the blood is flowing good again BOL!  Momma just has to keep taking data on my breathing, which she says is no big deal.  She already obsessively watches me pee and pooh, why not breathing, too?  Such fun hobbies Momma has.  Anywoof, keep the prayers coming, though, pals, just in case.

"Take me home, Momma!  The vet lady is nice, but home is nicer!  No one sticks things in your pooper!"

Long Time No Bark!

It's been a while since I've updated, pals.  Life gets busy sometimes, and we forget to say hi.  I got some bad news last week.  Looks like I have a problem with my heart, and the vet says I'm in the early stages of congestive heart failure.  Momma and Daddy were pretty upset, but I started my medicines, and I'm starting to feel much better.  It didn't help that I fell off the bed and couldn't really move for a few days!!  But really, pals, I'm feeling pretty good, so don't worry too much.  I go back to the vet on Friday to get some more pictures of my heart and they gotta check to make sure my liver is ok from the medicines.

Speaking of medicines, GUESS WHAT?!?!  The vet told Momma I could take my pills in CHEESE!!!!  CHEESE, pals, CHEESE!!!!!!  Cheese is my most favorite food in the whole entire world!!!!  Oh boy, pals, I had some nice mild mozzarella for a few days, and now today I got a nice medium cheddar!  YUM!!!  So if anything good has come out of this, it's that I finally get to eat CHEESE again!!!  BOL!!

So Sad

Fizzy's Momma here.  Today I learned that one of Fizzy's best good Dogster friends has gone to the Bridge.  Ebony Ursula Gonzalez was one of his first friends, and later became his Valentine.  Her sisfur, Rinky, went to the Bridge a few years ago, then Ceeley came to live with her.  Ceeley went to the Bridge a few weeks ago.  And now Ebby.  Her mom, Lulu, is in a bad place right now.  Her heart is so full of grief.  Please keep them in your prayers.

Ebby, I never got to meet you in real life, but your pictures and diary entries always brought a smile to my face.  During some of my darkest moments, I would go to your page and see your big smile, and it would help pull me from the abyss.  I know you're so happy to be back with Ceeley and Paw Paw and especially your beloved Rinky.  We'll miss you down here.  Until we meet in heaven...

Everyone Is So Lazy...

Everyone in the house has been feeling real lazy lately, pals.  Well, cept Daddy, who works a lot more now BOL!  It's ok, he gets over time monies when he works more than 40 hours in a week.  But me and Momma have spent our summer being real lazy, lots of sleeping in and snuggling and just laying around.

But guess what?!  Momma got that promotion she was talking about a while ago!!!  She gets to work with all the kids in the school now, and she gets more monies to do it, too!  She said it's her dream job, and that things are finally starting to go our way!

I'm still waiting for that new toy, by the way...

Life is Good!!

Life has been really good here, pals!  Daddy really loves his new job (he's always been a tech geek, and now he gets PAID to geek out every day!) and Momma's been able to check the account of the monies without freaking out.  She actually leaked a little when Daddy got his first pay check!  She says she can FINALLY put money away for a rainy day!  Which is weird, because EVERY day has been rainy here this summer, so I don't know what she's planning on doing with the monies.  I hope there's a new toy in there for me somewhere...

Thursday, June 11, 2015


Daddy starts his new job on Monday, pals!  He has to wear special clothes, and get this!  They're giving him $300 to buy them!!  Momma says it's all so overwhelmingly exciting!

AND!!  Guess what else!  Momma might be getting a promotion next school year!  She doesn't know too much about it yet, but it would be more money!  And from the little she does know about it, it sounds like her dream job, cause she'd get to work with every kid in the school!!  Keep your fingers crossed!

See, pals, prayers and good thoughts really DO work.  Momma and Daddy went from being nearly bankrupt to having all of these exciting opportunities happening.  Momma wants you all to know, that once Daddy gets his first real paycheck, she plans on paying it forward to all of those in need, since all you pals who helped us out...well, Momma is leaking while she types this, cause you all can't possibly know how you saved us when we needed it the most.  So after Momma treats herself to a manicure and pedicure (which would be the first thing she's bought JUST for herself in years...YEARS I tell you), she plans on giving to those in need as often as possible.  Cause she knows how it feels to be saved, and she wants to pass that on to others.

Oh, AFTER she buys me a few new toys.  She doesn't know about that part yet.  And I haven't had a new Nylabone in about 74989128748710 years....just saying, Momma....

Update on Daddy

So some of you pals may have noticed we haven't said much about Daddy and has job interview.  That's cause the lady was supposed to call on Wednesday and she never did.  Daddy's been calling and calling her, leaving message after message...she never called back.  Tonight Daddy got an email from her saying she had accidentally put it on her schedule for this week, and she would like to call him tomorrow for an interview.  Daddy wrote back and said to call after 3.  Keep your fingers crossed, pals.  Momma and Daddy were both a mess last week when she didn't call, so Momma's not getting her hopes up too high, but we'll see!  Keep praying!

*deep breaths*

Tomorrow is Daddy third interview with the Verizon place, pals.  It's the big one, the one with the Human Resources person.  Please, pals, PLEASE, say a prayer for us that Daddy gets the job.  We don't know if we would find out tomorrow or not, but Momma is starting to get kinda nervous.  OK, REALLY nervous.  Thanks, pals.

Thursday, May 21, 2015


Daddy has a third interview with Verizon next Wednesday, pals!!  Momma is climbing on the ceiling AND the roof, she's so nervous!!  Keep praying, pals, it's WORKING!!

Also, thank you Zaidie and Mrs. Zaidie and Mr. Zaidie!!  Momma dunno how to send personal messages on this Blogger thing BOL!!

Oh Please Oh Please Oh PLEASE!

Daddy had a job interview today, pals.  It's to sell the cell phones at Verizon Wireless, and even though Daddy is a teacher now, he used to sell the cell phones a long time ago.  It would be more money for us, and plus there's the chances of bonuses and commissions and raises and promotions.  He said the interview went really well, and now he has to wait for someone from HR to call him to do a phone interview.  It could take up to a week, so of course Momma is going all crazy waiting for them to call.

Pals, PLEASE, if you can take a moment, please say a prayer for us.  Momma says Daddy having a new better paying job would make all of our lives so much better.  Then we would NEVER have to ask our pals for help ever EVER again.  Daddy is sorta sad at the thought of leaving teaching, but he says something has to change, and Momma makes more money at teaching cause she's been at her school for 84750238758 years.  Plus she likes teaching more than him anyhow.

Pray Daddy gets the job, pals.  Please.  Momma believes in the power of prayer, and she's been praying pretty much non-stop since Friday when Daddy got the call to come in for an interview.  We love you, pals, so very very much.  Thanks!

Thank You.

Dear Friends of Fizzy,

I'm very happy to report that my car is paid for and I can go pick it up tomorrow after school.  Thanks to some very generous people (I won't name names, as most people donated anonymously...but YOU know who you are) I'm able to get my prescriptions and Fizzy's medicine and dog food, too.  I didn't like asking for help, but I'm glad I did.  I have some breathing room now to work on getting my mortgage and student loan caught up (I was smart about those and actually called before things got too bad).  I'll be poor for, well....forever lol, but I'm no longer living in terror and wondering what new fresh hell each day is going to bring.  Jeff has a job interview next week, so keep your fingers crossed and say a prayer that it will bring good news.

I appreciate the money donations, but I wanted to make sure to also thank folks for prayers and kind words.  I know not everyone can help monetarily (because let's face it, very rarely can I donate money to anyone), but prayers and kind words really do make a difference.  Sometimes, when a person is down and can't find a way out, all it might take is a kind word or two from someone to lift your spirits.  So thank you all for that.

Thank you all.  For everything.  I've met some of the most amazing people through Dogster.  I wish Dogster wasn't such a mess, but at least we still have each other.

Love always,

Monday, May 4, 2015


Dear Friends of Fizzy,

I'm deeply embarrassed to do this, but I've fallen on significantly hard times.  My house is almost in foreclosure, my car got repossessed, my student loans are in default, and I can't afford to buy Fizzy food or pay for my prescriptions for my diabetes.  Food for myself isn't even on the list of necessities right now.  I set up a fundraising site in the hopes that I can get my car back, but I only have 21 days to do so.  If you're able, in any way, to donate...god I'm bawling my eyes out just typing this.  Me and Jeff work SO HARD at what we do, and yet we get paid so little money.  Jeff's been searching for a new job for a while now, but no such luck.  Please, do NOT feel obligated to donate.  Please share the fundraiser to anyone you know who might be able to help.  And please, if nothing else, PLEASE pray for us.

Please Help if You Can!

I love you all so much.  Please know I would never ever ask for help if I truly didn't need it.  Thanks for reading.

Two more pups have gone to the Bridge, pals, both on the same day.  Duncan from the D Dogs (you schnauzer pups probably remember him) and Biscotte both went to the Bridge on Monday.  Neither pups have bloggies here, but I bet a lot of you know them from Dogster.  Please keep the pups and their families in your prayers.

Thanks MJF!

Pals, MJF made this for me for my birthday, and look!  I got my own bunnies now to make as much tasty bunny pooh as I can eat!!  Hooray!!!  Thanks MJF!!

Happy Birthday to MEEEEE!!!!

It's my birthday, pals!!  I'm 11 years young!  Momma keeps singing this song to me:

"Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
You look like my Pooh Fry
And you smell like one, too!"

Hey!  I like my pooh smell, Momma!!  The bunnies leave me presents and I HAVE to eat them!  It would be very rude not to!

It's my birthday and I'll eat pooh if I want to!

Poor Momma...

Momma's got the urka gurkas REAL BAD, pals.  She said she hasn't had a stomach bug like this in a super long time.  I'm trying to take care of her, but I don't think she appreciates my help.

She was sick all night long.  Daddy let me out this morning, and when I came back in I brought her a present.  It was a bit of a peanut shell I found in the yard.  I put it right next to her on the bed so she'd be sure to see it.  She was kinda moaning and groaning, and she rolled over and found it and started giggling.  She threw it away, though, cause she said she's not hungry.  Well, she says she couldn't stop thinking about that peanut, and her tummy started going wonky, and she ran to the bathroom to urka gurka.  I tried to follow her in there but she shut the door on me, pals!!!  She's urka gurked a few more times since then.  She says she feels like a new born baby.  I dunno why she feels that way, or what that even means, but she just ate a piece of toast and she doesn't look nearly as cute as a baby.  Babies aren't green.  Unless it's a baby frog.

I was supposed to go see Grammy and pap-Pap and Thumper tonight, but I don't think that's happening...

I'm Old and Deaf and Hairy

Momma says we only update our bloggy thing here when some pup moves on to the Bridge, pals, and that's too sad, so I finally convinced her to get off her butt and help me write something!!!!

Not much has been happening here.  It's finally done snowing (BOO!) (Momma: NOT boo...I hate winter), but it's still cold.  Momma says spring always struggles in, but once it's here it's GLORIOUS.  Cause then the bunnies come out and I can eat their pooh. (Momma:  That's NOT why spring is glorious...)

I went to the vet for my yearly check-up last week.  We saw a different vet at the same place we always go to, and Momma and Daddy did NOT like her.  First she said my eyes are cloudy.  Well, DUH, vet lady, I'm almost 11 years old.  Then she checked my ears and said they're hairy.  HMPH.  YOUR ears are hairy, lady!!  Then she said I was too fat!!  But no one had even weighed me at that point, and that's when Momma says she started to think "Hmmmm...."  The vet lady told me I had to lose weight!  Well, it turns out, when I finally DID get weighed, I was the exact same weight as last year, and THAT vet lady told me that was perfect, so HMPH.  Momma says I do NOT need to lose a few pounds (unlike herself BOL!)

So then the vet lady goes to listen to my heart...can you believe she put her hand on my schnooter and held my mouth closed so she could hear?!?  Momma was like "Ummm.....noooooo..." Then the vet lady tried to say I have a heart murmur.  She listed all these things called symptoms, and I don't have one of them!  Not ONE!  But the vet lady tried to make Momma and Daddy spend $300 to get tests done!!!  Momma said if I was having symptoms she would pay for it, but since I still act like a puppy she doesn't really think there's anything wrong with me!!!

Momma and Daddy are NOT going to take me to see that vet lady again.  They said they felt like she was just trying to get them to spend tons of unnecessary money.  Momma and Daddy don't HAVE unnecessary money...they barely have ANY money BOL!!!

Here's a picture of me and cousin Tuna.  We like each other a lot!!!  He likes to play, and I like to sniff his butt BOL!!
Hope all my pals are doing well!!

More Sad News

Sad news, pals.  Miss Lacey had to go to the Bridge today.  Her Momma is very very sad and won't be on the interwebs for a while, but I thought you all should know so you could maybe say a prayer for her.  Rest in peace, sweet Lacey.  You and Shakey and Sydney are running together again at the Bridge.

Thursday, January 29, 2015

Oh Boy!!

Pals!  Pals!!  Guess what?!?!  Bacon and Beanie's new little sisfur has a blog here, and she is gonna tell us about her adventures!  You can find her here!  Let's play, pups!!

Friday, January 16, 2015

Rest in Peace

For those pals who no longer go on Dogster and don't do the Book of Faces, Momma found out today that sweet Uno had to go to the Bridge.  We're very very sad, as Uno was one of the first pups we were friends with.

Rest in peace, sweet girl, and run free with the angels.

I Have a Visitor!

Look at who we found hanging out in our back yard today, pals!

We never see deer in our yard or even in our neighborhood, so Momma says this is really weird.  And kind of a big deal.  Momma was worried that he was hurt, but she's seen him moving around so he seems ok.  He's been laying down next to the fence so the tree blocks the wind so he can keep warm. 

I'm not allowed to go play with him...mean Momma...

Happy New Year!

Did all of my pals have a wonderful holiday season?  I sure did!  Check out this new sweater I got from my Grammy and Pap Pap and Thumper!

Momma says I look dapper.  I don't know what that means.  Daddy calls me a purple people eater.  I don't know what that means either.
The only sad part about the holidays was no snow!!!  It wasn't even cold!  Momma didn't even need to wear a coat on Christmas Eve or Christmas day because it was warm!  It's super cold now, though, but still no sign of snow any time soon.  *sniff* I love the snow...

Anywoof, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.  Bring on 2015!!!
