SPN Vid rec and mini pupdate

October 24th, 2010 (09:34 pm)
okay

where i am: hanging with Dyna & Flurry
how i am: okay
accompanied by: Cannon chewing his kong

Whether you're enjoying this season of SPN or not, I know a lot of us are longing for the brothers to truly get back together again. To be Sam 'n Dean again.  I hope that happens this season but, until it does (I hope!), we can watch wonderful brotherly, feel-good videos such as Ellie's latest, done to "Here Comes the Sun". I watched it shortly after getting up this morning and it really was a day-brightener. I know you'll enjoy it too.

The last thing I want this lj to become is Dyna's death watch journal so I won't write often about this ordeal. But, since I'm on line now, I know some of you will be thinking about her and, for that, I truly thank-you. So far the ordeal is solely mine. She's still doing very well on the prednizone and now I even have pictures of her romping in the fallen leaves with her cuz ball. Pictures I didn't expect her to be around for.

 

Hubby's going away the first week of November and I desperately hope Dyna will stay "well" while I'm on my own. I don't want to lose her no matter what but, doing the deed without his strong shoulders to lean on is not something I want to face. So, if you can spare some good vibes our direction, I'd be much obliged.

Cannon is growing in leaps and bounds and is now about 40 lbs at 16 weeks in age. Fortunately he's had a playmate next door the last few weeks to help him burn off excess energy. Orbit is a 5 month old Boxer pup dumped at the local humane society and my next door neighbor J is fostering him. He's almost totally blind but coping really well. So well, that he quite regularly kicks Cannon's younger, smaller (for now) ass during their frequent play-dates. the quality of some of these pictures isn't the greatest but trying to keep up with these 2 during their romp sessions is not an easy task. Still, I think these shots are worth sharing, plus I wanted to end this entry on a positive note. I hope you enjoy them:

I'll keep Dyna in my prayers. Glad Cannon has a playmate. Orbit sounds like a great dog,and dogs can manage with disabilities so well.. There is a border collie who is deaf and visually impaired,her name is Helen. She's a sweet heart.

Thanks for the good vibes, lady. Orbit is doing terrifically well, in fact, the little brat is too smart for his own good and has figured out how to escape the crate J had been using for him in her bedroom. Fortunately nothing bad happened during his escape. Cannon just loves him... it used to be, before Orbit showed up next door, that I could put Cannon out in our front yard for a quick pee and he'd stay with me and then head straight for the door to go back inside. Not now though, he high-tails it for J's backyard, in hopes Orbit will be there for another play session LOL

Helen is an awesome name for that BC you know *g*

I am enjoying S6 so far! I do want the brothers to truly be back together though!
Ohhh! I have been keeping you in my thoughts and I am really glad Dyna's doing so well with her meds! That would really be a downer so I am hoping she stays well for you during this time-and many more days!
OMG. LOL-I love these pictures! *Giggles* That one of just Orbit's mouth? Cracks me right up! Thanks for sharing these!!!
*Hugs*

Thanks for the good thoughts re Dyna. It's hard living with this. Every time she burps, coughs, or her stomach gurgles, I fear the worst (fluid escaping from her intestines to her abdomen) but, so far she's hanging in there. At this point I'm so hoping she'll see her 9th birthday (Nov 8). If she makes it that far, then the next milestone I'll hope for is Christmas. That target isn't realistic but neither is November. You never know... maybe the little thing will surprise us!

I'm so glad you enjoyed the puppy pix. *Knew* you would though, they really are a riot *g*. They play hard yet not too rough. We only have to be careful when Orbit starts running around. Usually he has enough vision to avoid colliding into anything but sometimes, in the excitement, he'll bump into things. And when he's slammed into me full-tilt? Yikes! He's a good dog though. I hope, if J doesn't keep him (she is considering adopting him), he goes somewhere that will have a fellow dog playmate nearby too.

PS - Saw your comments about Sadie & Frosty. I'm glad they still get their romps too :)

It's hard no matter what I think. No matter how much time you do have-it's never enough. You want more. So I am really glad she's doing so well right now. I hope she makes those targets hon. I really want this for you. ;)
My brother used to live next door to a terrier mix named Fred, and a Boxer named Dexter. OMG were they entertaining! I loved watching from the side deck because they just made you laugh so hard! I hope that Orbit gets to have a good playmate where ever he lands. He deserves that after what he's been through. And I'm secretly hoping it's your little man! Sadie spent 5 hours in Frosty's backyard-ripping it up. :)

We spent nearly 10 years watching them rip it up together-lol. I miss them as my brother moved due to a new job. I always wonder how those two are!
You're very welcome!

You know you are both in my thoughts! Cannon is adorable! But OMG - the size of his FEET!?!?! And the boxer is adorable as well - probably a good thing I am far away right now... of course, all these pics make me miss my guy like mad...

I swear Cannon is growing by inches daily! He and Orbit haven't played together since Weds. night due to Orbit going in for the snip-snip Thursday but they were standing next to each other on leash yesterday and I swear Cannon was just a hair shorter whereas on Weds. Orbit was still considerably taller LOL. And yes, Cannon's feet are huge. I refer to him as "pony". Maybe I should change that to "Clydesdale" ;).

I could've sworn I got back to you about the 2nd but don't see anything to you in my sent basket. ??? That timing would be perfect. Not sure if my plan covers daytime but I think so. Either way, we can connect via email first and then make the call. I'm really looking forward to a chat \o/

I replied to your email... You did get that, right? I'm suspicious as I haven't gotten any email all day - which is weird...

Sweet pics of Dyna- what a treasure! I'll keep you in my thoughts.

Puppy wrestling is too much fun :) I especially love the last one- looks like he's doing the "I'm the king of the world!!" thing.

"I'm the king of the world!!" would make for a great caption ;). I uploaded it to my photo site with the heading "Rawrrr!" and got a real kick out of it too. There are tons of hilarious shots J and I have taken of them. Many too blurry to share but still fun for both of us to look at.

Thanks for the good thoughts for Dyna. I'm treasuring every day with her even if, with this many dogs, I can't spoil her as much as I'd like to ;).

Awww, sweet pics of all the kids. :) I'm keeping you and Dyna in my thoughts, and meanwhile Cannon and Orbit are utterly priceless. I shall think silly puppy thoughts, now. :)

Thanks, pard. I'm afraid to jinx it but Dyna's looking great right now and put on a bit more weight to get her back to her normal weight. No idea what that means and what time-lime we're dealing with but I'll take what I can get as long as she's feeling good.

And Cannon and Orbit *are* hilarious. Orbit's recovered from his neuter and they are back to their antics - they never missed a beat ;).

Oh, that's wonderful news about Dyna! I'm crossing my fingers, toes, legs, eyes, paws that she'll get to linger with you for a good while, yet. Please give her a snuggle for me, and scuff up Cannon and Orbit for me, as well.

*HUGS!*

Thanks so much for the rec hon, really pleased you enjoyed it enough to point others in my direction.

All the best for Dyna - it's heartbreaking for you and hubby, but as you say right now she's probably totally unaware and fingers crossed she stays that way for how many more days you're all blessed with and many more happy photos like these for your memories.

Cannon - oh dear lord that pups legs are certainly not his yet are they? *giggles* He must be a handful, it's a shame when they've all grown up, puppy hood is such a great time, but it's also a relief when they get their legs coordinating and you don't have to protect yourself from being bulldozed - the two of them together are just adorable and Orbit is going to learn so much and gain confidence from another dog - wish him all the best in finding a permanent home, they are such lovely dogs.

Always in our thoughts.

Cannon and Orbit *are* hilarious. Orbit's recovered from his neuter and they are back to their antics - they never missed a beat ;). My gf has been strongly considering keeping Orbit and I think she will if a 'better' home doesn't come along. Truthfully, I'd love him to do even better.... my friend already has 2 dogs, a cat and a canary, works full-time (home for lunches), volunteers daily and weekends for the animal shelter and as awesome as that makes her, I'd love to see Orbit get a home with someone who will have time to truly work with him and teach him all the verbal commands to help him thrive. If he stays next door, he'll have a good life (and Cannon will be happy, I'm sure) but I think he could do better if that perfect, dedicated home comes along. either way, I think his future will be pretty damn good considering where he started ;).

So pleased to hear Dyna is holding her own and wonderful to hear Orbit has the safety of a home if all else fails - your friend sounds a lovely person who's willing to stick by him and yet still willing to see that someone else might suit him better - that's fabulous news for him.

Thought you might like to see this, he was on TV this morning and they'd filmed him on the farm too, I'm sure the video will be up on YouTube soon.

As always fingers crossed for you all.
