Here’s the Latest About…… ME!

Oh Dog! Not Monday AGAIN! Well, at least this week is going to be one day shorter for us.

I want to thank each of you who nominated me for the DogTime Petties Best Cause Blog! I am overwhelmed with your love for my blog- and me too!

Nominations are being accepted until June 30th, so there’s still time to get your nomination in. Just click on the logo and head on over!



Saturday Jen took me to the vet. I’ve always had issues with one of my ears, but it looked infected, so off we went.

Dr. Jones said I had the same thing this time last year, so she’s thinking maybe it’s an allergy thing. Anyway, I have meds for my ear and Jen is cleaning it out a couple of times a week.

me at the vet- I was nervous! But I only snipped when they tried to take my temp.

And because I shed when I’m nervous- oh let’s be honest, I shed ALL THE TIME!- Jen and I had another in our regular series of brushing in the back yard sessions. I prefer them in the heat of the day. Jen says I’m weird like that.

And then Sunday morning, Jen baked the cookies from the mix sent by My Three Moggies. Yum! Cookies!


Oh Dog! My whole house smelled like cookies!

Then yesterday afternoon, Jen took a nap and Bubba Cat and I had a nice little chat.


Don’t look now, Bubba, but we’re being watched! Jen is more invasive than the NSA!


So what did YOU do this weekend? I hope it was a good one!





About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  1. That last photo is so cute! Can we nominate you more than once for Petties? I’ve already done it, but happy to do it every day if it makes a difference. Oh, that pile of Rumpy furs is such a familiar site! Hope your ear is better soon. x

  2. Well Rumpy I hope that ear clears up ASAP………looks like you planted a lot of “fur plants” in your yard after your brushing….will they grow more Rumpies???? You and Bubba are having quite the serious discussion in that photo….HAHAHA

    Hugs, Sammy

  6. Oh Daisy understands what you’re going through, and we understand what Jen is going through too! Daisy just got over her ear-allergy thingy and we hope it doesn’t return….although the vet doesn’t hold out any hope for that. We’re going to nominate you right now – hope you win! 🙂

  7. Great weekend here at the pug household! Lots of napping and laziness, just the way I like it. 🙂

  8. Wow, that’s quite an impressive lot of shedding you’ve done there! I hope your ear clears up soon 🙂

  9. What a fun weekend! We had yucky weather this weekend so we spent a lot of time on the couch watching soccer. Mauja and Atka are great fans 😉

  10. My cats don’t like their temperature taken at the vets either. She uses a rectal thermometer. They think it’s just rude.

  11. Oh no! I missed nominating for the Petties. 😦 I hope you win, Rumpy. You’re great. Sorry you’re having trouble with your ears and hope they get better soon. I know what you mean about shedding year around! Maya likes brushing anytime anywhere but Pierson doesn’t. He tolerates it well enough, but I wish I could find a situation or a way where he’d enjoy it a bit more. Perhaps next time we’ll try doing it in the sunshine on the soft plush grass.

  18. I hope your ear is feeling better, R. I can see it’s a little red. I had some sun this weekend, too, but no brushing – thank goodness.

    Love and licks,

  19. Rumpy hope your ear is feeling better. Mazie’s ear is bothering her and I am cleaning it every day and putting drops in it. It must be shedding time because there are furbunnies ever where here. Sure do miss those “northern dog” fur bunnies though 🙂 Hope you got lots of those lovely cookies Jen made you, they look lovely! You guys have a great week! We voted and have our paws and fingers crossed.

  20. Your mom is so good making you those special cookies Rumpydog, and I love that last photo of you with Bubba Cat having a ‘chat’!
    Hope your ear gets better soon.

  22. The Boxers are not good at the vet, especially the big one, so good dog Rumpy. Hope the ears are OK. My, what a lot of hair you have 🙂

  23. It sounds like you has a real nice weekend, guys! We spent lots of time with Moosey, Gracie and Zoe, since we were away the week before. 🙂

  24. I had ear infection quite often and vet washed my ear with special liquid and then put antibiotic lotion in….
    My vet said that a dog with much longer ears tends to have this problem and mine are shorter but still it happened.
    I hope yours will get well soon.
