  • How To Talk To Your Dog About The Ebola Virus

    from My Brown Newfies

    Tuesday October 21st, 2014 at 09:24 PM


    As the mass hysteria reaches all new heights in the outbreak of the Ebola virus I thought we should all take a step back and have a little fun with a serious but out of control situation.

    **Please note I am not making light of this situation. Wait..yes I am because it has been all over the news, in my news feed and on my radio and I cant take it anymore.

    So the Ebola virus is apparently here in the U.S.

    Actually, it was here or is here. In my state. One county over.

    About 30 minutes south of me...

    Grand Prize Winner of the 2012 Pets Adviser Halloween Pet Photo Contest

    For the past several years Ive had a blast dressing Leroy up for Halloween. Hes always such a good sport with all of it and every year he totally rocks whatever creation Ive conjured up.

    Ive also had a blast entering him in various pet Halloween photo contests over the years and weve been very fortunate to actually win a few of them. Normally we enter for the shear fun of it and also to win money for rescue organizations...

    I love fallor autumn.

    Its always been my favorite season of the year for various reasons.

    I love the fall colors, I love sweater weather. I love Halloween and of course I love everything pumpkin, especially pumpkin spice.

    Right now my house has been taking over by every pumpkin scent you can think of.

    Sweet cinnamon pumpkin, pumpkin cupcake, pumpkin glazed doughnut, apple pumpkin..you get the picture.

    Every room is a different pumpkin scent.

    Its glorious.

    But I kinda feel sorry for my husband who...

    Ive had quite a few questions regarding Leroy over the past few weeks so today Id like to take the time to try and answer those as best as I can. While Ive been sharing most of what we know about his condition Im sure I have unintentionally left a few things out.

    Ill start with the most frequently asked questions and if I miss anything dont be shy to ask!

    What is Leroys diagnosis?

    Leroy has been diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Protein Losing Enteropathy and he may also have a...

  • A Dash Of Dog Hair

    The other night I was dishing up dinner for the kids.

    We were having ham and noodles.

    As I dished up a plate for Gracie I noticed a dog hair. There was no mistaking it. It was definitely a Sherman hair.

    Like any good mother would do I picked it out and threw it on the floor and moved onto dishing up a plate for Bobby.

    Same thing happened.

    Another Sherman hair in the ham and noodles.

    Apparently this dish called for a dash of dog hair.

    Whatever. On the floor it goes.

    So I dish up mine and wouldnt you...

  • Sherman Sends A Message

    from My Brown Newfies

    Tuesday October 7th, 2014 at 10:01 PM


    Ive had a few people ask me how Sherman was doing with Leroy being sick.

    I can assure you that Sherman is doing just fine and was not nearly as affected by Leroys illness as we were.

    Dont get me wrong, he was affected. but not by Leroys lack of presence. Sherman was more concerned that we were upset and that the general tone in his home was not of its usual nature.

    He knew we were all upset and that I was coming and going more often than normal. He could smell Leroy on me but he hadnt seen him...

  • The Short Story Of The Delicate Chicken Nuggets

    Leroy continues to improve each day. We have a long way to go especially in the weight gain category but even though it gives me ulcers, its awesome to see him returning to his old mischievous self, especially when he stole a cooked pork bone off the table the other day when it was left on the table for 0.02 seconds.

    Luckily, he was just as shocked as we were that he had a ginormous pork bone in his mouth and the recovery of the bone was done quickly and without incident, except my Leroy ulcer...
