Hi everyone! It’s Walter here. Remember a couple of posts ago when my mom told you about using a valve from an inflatable ball in the doll she made? Well I wanted to show you how I helped her get that valve out of the ball.

I had a little help from my dad because he blew the ball up for me.

Then I took the ball to our living room and gave it a good sniff.

I had fun shaking it and tossing it around a bit.

Don’t mind the mess behind me in front of that chair. That is the remnants from the packing pillows that came in the box with these toy balls. I had to destroy them first.

I had a great time showing that ball who was boss. If you want to see all the action you can check out my video.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

My mom made sure I didn’t tear up the ball too much and ruin the valve she needed. It’s always lots of fun helping my pawrents out with any shredding they need. Do you help your pawrents out like that too?

Hi everyone! It’s Millie and Walter here. We don’t know about all of you but we have some routines that we like to stick to almost every day. After everyone has had their dinners we love to do a little wrestling in the living room. Well one day it kind of spilled over into the family room.

First we want to show you what our family room normally looks like.

Take particular notice of the location of the ottoman (with the tray on it). Now watch what happened when our living room wrestling spilled into the family room.

There is more room for wrestling now that the ottoman is out of the way

Please ignore the dust flying in front of the camera and our crazy eyes. Mom was using her phone since it was the closest thing to her at the time.

Sorry about making all that noise while you were trying to watch your show dad. Usually we just run around the ottoman and then back into the living room but this time we just shoved it out of our way and had a great time.

Do any of you ever rearrange the furniture while you are playing?

Hi everyone, it’s Walter here. OMD it’s hard to imagine that it’s already been two years since I came to live in my wonderful home.

I love hanging out in our yard

I sure was a scrawny kid then. Now I’m a lean, mean, running machine.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to see it. I hope you noticed that Millie never catches me and I always call off the chase by running into the garage.

Did you see how I smoked Millie? BOL!

Of course I have to thank my rescue Big Dogs Big Hearts and foster pawrents Lindsay and Jon for helping me find my forever home. I sure love my family and would never want to live anywhere else.

Before I go I have to give a little shout out to another guy celebrating his Gotcha Day too. Happy Gotcha Day Frankie Furter! We sure are a couple of lucky guys.

Hi everyone! It’s Walter here. Welcome to the Guys Day Zoomie Event! We guys sure are having a super fun time today all over Blogville. Check out Frankie & Ernie’s blog for links to all the fun events (wordpress blogs can’t add link parties to our posts 😦 ).

I have lots of action to show you so let’s get this party started. I’m so excited because we have guys joining us from all over the world and a few different species other than dogs.

Let’s start the action off with one of our global and non-canine entries.

Speedy the House Bunny really has the moves!

Jakey and Arty’s brother Bilbo decided to sit this event out due to his arthur itis. I hope he is able to enjoy some of the other events today.

While we are in the area let’s check out my friend Nim from Seattle. He sent us this video of some super fast action.

Nim may not be moving very fast but we bet he is making his mom dizzy walking around in circles. BOL!

Let’s see what a couple of brothers from South Africa are up to.

Wally is so fast he doesn't touch the ground.

Those Scottie brothers sure know how to zoom around the yard.

Let’s stick with the brother theme and see what Socks and Fenris are up to.

Socks is a very serious kitty

I’ve heard from my girlfriend Tuiren (Socks sister) that Socks is a kitty not to be messed with so no chasing the kitty boys.

Fenris loves to play ball

My buddy Fenris loves a great game of fetch.

Remember guys no chasing the kitty!

With a look like that I don’t think Socks has to worry about any of us dogs chasing after him. I’m giving him lots of room.

Now let’s go down under to see what Dui is up to.

My last guests are two of the most well known dachsies in all of Blogville.

One takes the high road and the other takes the low road but they both end up back on the porch.

Last but not least it’s my turn! After over a week of above freezing temps we still have snow covering most of our yard. Here is a shot of me from one of our big snow storms this year.

I love catching snow balls and running with them

I don’t know about any of you but I’m a bit worn out from all that action. Let’s check out some of the other Guys Day action and see if we can find some refreshments.

Thanks for joining me zooming around Blogville.

Hi everyone it’s Millie here. Well do I have a tale to tell. Yesterday Walter and I were having our usual fun time snoopervising dad while he worked in the garden. We were getting ready to come in after a couple of hours outside but decided to get in one last round of zoomies.

Zoomies!

Zoomies!

Next thing dad knows I come running out from the shrubbery sneezing my nose off with blood spewing out too. He calmed me down and called mom out to help him figure out what was going on. Well they couldn’t tell if I just hit my nose on something or if maybe something was stuck up my nose so they decided to call the vet. Of course it was lunch time and all of the vets were on their break but after a couple of phone calls Dr. Cooperman said she would come back early from her lunch to see me. It was less than an hour wait.

By this time I had calmed down and was resting. After all, I had just been playing outside for a couple of hours and was ready for a nap. When I woke up and got ready to go to the vets I started sneezing all over again and was spewing more blood. It wasn’t lots of blood but it was still a bit of a mess. Mom and I hopped in the car for the 2 minute drive to the vet.

The first thing the vet tried to do was stick this ↑ thingy up my nose. I didn’t mind much when she was poking around my left nostril, but there was no way she was sticking that thing up the right side. Little did I know that that would land me a trip to the back room. I said goodbye to my mom and when I got in the back they stuck me with a needle and I got very sleepy.  This time I really couldn’t resist when the vet stuck a bigger scope thing up my nose but I’m kind of glad she did because look what she found! OUCH!

Mom came back and picked me up after about an hour. I was sent home with some pain pills and some antibiotics to make sure that nasty stick didn’t give me any bad bugs. I was still very sleepy from the drugs they gave me so we all decided to take a nap.

The vet recommended to ice my nose to keep any swelling down so while we were napping I got to have an ice bag for a pillow. I’m feeling much better after my nap and dinner and haven’t been sneezing any more. Mom and dad have already told us that we won’t be doing much playing for a couple of days to make sure my nose heals okay. Don’t worry Tommy I’ll be fine for our date on Monday.

If you wouldn’t mind I could use some power of the paw just to make sure everything heals okay. Thanks friends.

Killer hydrangea

Killer hydrangea

Notes from mom: It appears that Millie impaled her nose on a piece of hydrangea. Since it is early in the growing season this hydrangea hasn’t leafed out much. It is still kind of woody and we think that when she ran by it she happened to jam a piece up her nose.

Happy Hydrangea

This is what the hydrangea looks like when it is all leafed out and in bloom. It also isn’t as easy to run through when it is so full.

I’m very glad we decided to take Millie to the vet. Millie is a very stoic dog and never pawed at her nose as most dogs would have done with a foreign object stuck up there. You could tell when you listened to her breathing that it sounded a bit wheezy too so I suspected there might be something stuck in there. The vet said she was lucky to have such a long nose because a dog with a shorter snout might have had the stick go through and poke into her eye (yuck!)

A big thanks to Dr. Cooperman and the staff at Clark Animal Care for getting us in right away and taking great care of our special girl. Hopefully we won’t have this happen again but the way these two like to chase each other through the shrubbery there is no guarantee. Charlie will be going out and trimming back any pieces of the hydrangea that might be hazardous so we can do our best to minimize any future disasters. I know everyone out there will be putting their paws together to help Millie heal and I just want to thank you all now for that too.
