Opi Went to Vet Today

Here's Opi and he doesn't feel well.  In the picture, he is all bundled up and ready to go to the vet.Opi had been complaining of his chest and abdomin hurting for the last 3 days by letting out a loud, painful sounding yelp.  When we got to the vet's office, he was fine and didn't let out a peep even when his temperature was taken rectally.  The vet had him walk across the room and was surprised and told Opi's mommy "that's a bow-legged little guy!"  There were 2 other chis at the vet's office and one was so petite next to 7lb Opi.  After the vet visit, Opi was taken to Feeder Supply and got his usual after vet treat.

Our "Aunt" Sofia Finally Went Home

Our "grandma" or "omi" as she likes to be called went on a cruise recently.  That meant that our "aunt" Sofia had to stay with us for a whole week.  Our mommy and daddy like Sofia but Nellie Belle is a bully with Sofie. Barney and Opi could really care less if Sofie visits, but Nellie is more spoiled and a real diva at times.  Here are a few pictures of Sofie's visit.

This is Barney (on your left) and Nellie

Sofia--she wouldn't hold still for picture

Opi was sick this past week.  Probably had some kind of bug.  The vet didn't know what was going on but he knew Opi wasn't feeling too chipper.  One good bit of news from that visit--Opi has lost 1 1/2 lbs!  Yippee that expensive Science Diet Light has done some good!  Now that Opi has gone from 8lbs 9oz to 7lbs even we still have a ways to go until he is in the 5lb range.  This picture isn't recent, for some reason he managed to escape the camera fanatic in our house lol.

This is it for now folks, so hugs and puppy kisses for all!

What's New With Opi, Nellie Belle and Sister Barney

Opi and Nellie Belle have a new crocheted mat for their naps on the cold floor.  Their mommy made it for them.  Here's some pictures of them using it:

Our sister Barney has had a lump on her bottom for several years.  The vet has said that we shouldn't worry about it.  He didn't want to take it off because Barney might have problems from the general anesthesia she'd have to have if it was removed.  No problems for years until mommy came home from work a couple weeks ago and found blood all over the house.  Barney had chewed on it.  Mommy loaded Barney into the car and rushed off to the vet.  Barney had to wear one of those things mommy calls a funnel collar and take antibiotics.  Barney is ok now and we're happy.  We all teased her and called her "Funnel Head" but we are really happy she is ok now.

That's it for now!  Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving.  Wagging tails and puppy kisses...
