So sorry Jeanne, it is so difficult losing a parent. I lost my dad 20 yrs ago and my sister 13 yrs ago. The thought of also losing my mom is too much to bear.but it's out of my hands. I am treasuring her as much as I can.

Hi everyone!

Hope you and all your Tzu babies are doing well.

My mom starts chemo on Monday and will be on a 2 week cylcle so it will be busy taking her to the hospital 2x a week. One day for blood test and doc visit and the next for her treatment. More bad news is that she also has lung fibrosis. I will deal with it one day at a time and do the best I can for her.Just trying very hard not to get discouraged yet. The battle is jsut beginning.

Have a great weekend dolls and hug the furbabies for me!

Jeanne--I bet he's a cutie! Yours are probably wondering when "that thing" is going home. We took Riley to California with us when we visited our son. They have a Shar Pei who was just a few months old at the time, and already bigger than Riley. She wanted to chase and play and he didn't want anything to do with that. I don't think he would be happy if we brought another dog into the house, even to puppy sit.

He's actually been doing very well the past few days. It's not that he does it every day, though, so I know it's just because no one gets the message and lets him out in time.

Tzus are notoriously difficult to potty train. Not sure why, but if you can get them to use just one place where a potty pad is, you are miles ahead. Just change it daily (or every time there is a puddle there). Mine do use it, but also occassionally (if it is cold out) will use an unprotected floor. Not good for carpets for sure.

We are baby sitting a cocker puppy and my tzus are really upset! They keep their distance and he so much wants to play!

Our yard isn't fenced in so we can't do the doggie door yet. We are thinking of putting up a small fenced-in area out back but we haven't gotten further than thinking. We just rent, but I'm sure our landlady won't mind. She's really great and told us we could do just about anything we want short of painting the wood paneling that's in some rooms (can you believe she had a renter who started doing that?).

I think I will try putting the puppy pads and see if it will at least have him going in one spot. Luckily the linoleum is really old, so he can't hurt it any. We have been able to get him to make a little growl sound when he needs to go out, so that helps some.

Brenda, WELCOME!!! Nice to have a rudder again. Hopefully more people will drop by as they realize you are here.

Michela, so sorry about your SIL and Mom. Cancer is the worst! Can't someone find a cure?

Brenda, we do have a doggie door, but I still keep a puppy pad in the back wash area, just in case someone is "afraid of the dark" or wind or whatever. Better than cleaning up messes (especially when you don't see them until they stain).

Brenda I am SO happy that you decided to become the leader.

My SIL died of sarcoma this morning. She had been battling it for 8 yrs. She lived in Florida with her husband and she has 3 daughters. One married , one away at school and one at home although she is in her mid 20's. They will be flying her home for burial here in Montreal.

So it will be a crazy time for me the next little while and I have my mom to deal with. We see the onocologist on the 15th so we will know then when can be done for her. I will be by as soon and as often as I can.

Michaela--I'm so sorry about your Mom. My Grandma had cancer of the spine, so I know how devastating the diagnosis is. Keeping her in my prayers. Keep us updated on what's happening.

Jeanne--Sorry about your SIL and am also keeping her in my prayers.

Riley will be 4 years old in a couple months. I'm thinking about trying to train him for puppy pads as we don't always get him out especially if we're sleeping and he needs to go. For some reason he has picked the kitchen floor to pee and the bathroom beside the toilet to poop, both of which are linoleum. I guess I should be glad he's consistant with where he's going, but I don't like him getting into the habit of going on the floor. It's worse when I'm gone because Daddy doesn't always get the "hints" that Riley gives that he needs to go outside.

I actually have three grandkids here. My daughter Pam and her family moved here in January 2008 and Mack and I followed in August 2009. Tanika will be 13 in March, Cody will be 17 in April, and Chelsea will be 20 in March. The grands are growing so fast!

Take care and hope to see you posting soon. I became a leader to keep the group from being deleted and am hoping that we can get it revived. I miss everyone and their furbabies!

Michela, I am SO sorry! That is devastating to both you and your mom. My brother's wife is currently in the last stages of lung cancer. It is a tough, tough diagnosis for everyone who loves a person with the disease. There are always things that can be done for comfort and some quality of life. You just grab hold of every little thing that is available and treasure every single moment! Strong, positive thoughts radiating to you both.

Jeanne, how nice that your GD is also close by!

Thanks for the thoughts on my mom. I just got some very bad news. She has lung cancer and it is invasive and not operable. I am numb right now. We go back to the doctor Monday morning and I guess we will have to take this one step at a time.

Those medical problems are understandably very stressful (and that's when I eat most). Sending good thoughts to you and your mom!

Brenda, my granddaughter just moved close to me to go to school. It is fun having a "youngster" around. She had her 19th birthday on the 15th, so I know she doesn't think of herself as a "youngster" any longer, but the energy and enthusiasm are so contagious. Makes ME young!

Happy Friday Tzu lovers!

Brenda, just looked at your page and say a new picture of Riley! He is so cute.How old is he?
So nice that you have your GD living close to you. I know you must be really prud of her and I wish her a lifetime of happiness with her hubby to be.

It's been hard for me too staying on track. My mom has not been well and we have had so mny doctor;s appts to figure out what is wrong with her. She has a chronic cough and had a lung biospy in Dec and had to stay in hospital for a week. We should get results of that soon, so needless to say I hav been doing some senseless eating. I rerally have to get myself in check soon.

Hi Jeanne!

Hope you both have a great weekend and kisses to all your furbabies!

Jeanne, so glad Scooter got to get rid of the boot. I bet that was fun trying to get him to leave it on.

Michela--I know what you mean. Some people just don't care what they put on Facebook for all the world to see! I'm still a bit leary of it--try to make sure that I keep it as "impersonal" as possible. I don't very often post things there.

My Granddaughter Chelsea--the one who sings that I featured in a couple of my blogs--is getting married. I think they've decided on November. That gives me a great incentive to get busy and get back on track and get rid of some more of this weight. She came to Arkansas to visit us for a few weeks last summer and ended up staying permanently! She works with special needs children (I think ages 2-3). Her fiance is a lineman, so he's been to help out after Hurricane Sandy and then places where the power was affected by the winter storms.

Things aren't going too badly--I fell back into the "old ways" although I was fortunate that I actually stayed about the same weight. Now I'm back at kicking those bad habits again and back at the beginning with my exercising.

Brenda/Michela...hi, hi, hi.

My little guy Scooter has been having problems iwth cysts and one has turned into an abscess. We're treating it, but he looks so pathetic because he has to wear a sort of "boot" on his paw (it is on his left forepaw) to keep the dressings dry. Poor baby.

Hello Michela and Jeanne!

FB seems to get a LOT of people these days. I know Francie spends a lot of time there (I'm friends with her). I just check in there a short time each day--I'm spending more time on SP these days. It's great to "hear" from you.

Michela, sounds like your babies are doing well. I'll have to get a picture on here of Riley. He's so spoiled rotten.....

Oh wow I may have to think hard about joining FB. I seem to miss alot. I hope she is doing well and is happy. I also hope she will be back here one day. I do miss hearing from her and her furbabies. I think I will sent her an email soon to say hi.
My kids are great! Abby is getting on and will be nine in May. She is a true Diva!Time flies. It felt like yesterday that I got her when she was 2.5 yrs old and the spunky one.
Kenzie is apx 3 now and still my tazmanian devil. He is my little man! A true mommy's boy, always by my side.

How are your babies doing? Hope your DD's are doing well too.

Hi I just stopped in to see if this team was still active..I need an active team..I love to spark..It is sad that teams that have been so fun in the past fade away..Best to all...

FYI, Our beloved Shih Tzu Prozak, aka Zakman lived to be 17yrs old..I miss him more than I can say..

I miss it too Jeanne. I keep wondering how everyone and their Tzu babies are doing.

I sent Amy an email, just wanted her to know that I am thinking of her.

Hope all is well with you doll. I am so not ready for summer to end but it's inevitable. emoticon

Thank you Jeanne, that means so much to me.

Hope all is going well for you and enjoying your retirement.

Please say hi to Amy for me when you see her next on FB. Tell her I miss her and that I hope she will email me with an update when she can.

Lots of love

Hello everyone!

I had to come by today. It is Charlie 2yr anniversary since we lost him and this is where I needed to come today.

Hope you and all your Tzu babies are doing well.
Abby & Kenzie are great and constantly fill my life with such joy!

Hugs to all!
Michela

I will miss you, but I am one of those that has kind of gotten out of the habit of logging in here. I check by, and usually find an empty room. But I will miss all the lively tzu chat. I see Amy on facebook often, but not here. Sad.

Hello everyone, I will be off on vacation for the next 2 weeks and wanted to drop by to say hello & goodbye.

I will be removing myself as team leader of this team. It is with a heavy heart that I do this as I have gotten to love all of you members who were active at one time as well as your Tzu babies. You all know who you are. You have helped me through the loss of my beloved Charlie and were a tremendous support to me at such a difficult time in my life.

But sadly, it seems that one by one everyone has dropped off and with no participation I do not see the point of hanging on anymore.

Hopefully someone will step up to the plate and take over and do what they can to keep it going. If that happens I will be coming by to visit. If not I am afraid that Sparks will just remove the team after a period of inactivity. The thought makes me very sad, as I have a special love for Tzu's and the members I got close to here. But I will continue to be on Sparks and will see you around the friends feeds as usual.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of the summer and continue in the pursuit of your goals.

With love
Michela

That is so true Jeanne. Charlie will always have a part of my heart. He was a special boy!

Strange, Michela. I miss Charlie, too. Somehow you get attached, even via the internet. Kenzie is well loved, but those who leave are never really replaced.

Hello everyone!! Hope all is well with everyone as well as all the Tzu babies and that you all had a great holiday weekend!

Had to share this with you all! It started thundering really loud at apx 4am this morning and expected the babies to be scared oiut of their skin. I could not see Abby in the bedroom and expect that she was hinding under the bed as she usually does. Kenzie was sleeping on the bed the loud noise did not even faze him. He just continued sleeping and snoring. Funny boy!
When we got up Abby came out of hiding and refused to go out for her business and just followed me everywhere till we all left for work!

I remembered how it was when we had Charlie and how he & Abby would stick together both shaking like a leaf. Miss my boy still everday.

Something is wrong with my Spark site today. No graphics. Not sure where to click or what I'm clicking.

Jeanne it has been raining here since Saturday and will continue all week! TG it looks like it will be a sunny weekend! Not too much fun being out with the pups. Kenzie will be out in anything, he just does not care but I hate getting them all wet.

Let the emoticon shine!

It was a glorious day here yesterday, and we killed ourselves in the yard. It rained so many days in a row the grass was really hard to cut, but it looks nice now.

Planning a yardsale for next week to get rid of some of DD's stuff left behind when she moved. It looks like it may rain it out, however. Back to the rain. The dogs SO loved being in the yard with us yesterday. Hope the weather continues for a few days anyway. We all enjoyed the day of sun.

Good to hear your DD made it to Florida! I am sure she really needed the week to settle in! And works out great that you get to see her again soon!
I agree that winter would be the best time for a visit! It is probably already too hot over there! It will be a big adjustment for the Tzu babies.

Thanks (the photo is blurry, so it doesn't show the aging, wrinkles and "chub" that are there.)

DD has made it to Florida and will be starting her job on Monday. They put it off a week to give her time to get settled, rest and then hit the road running. She has to fly back to testify at a trial, so I'll see her May 2. However, we do plan to visit, but not until WINTER when the winds are howling in Washington State.

Thanks for asking, my dear.

That is good to hear Jeanne! And is did see on your feed about your retirement party! So nice and I love the picture.

I must be so different without your DD Tzu's. How is she settling in.Will you be visiting soon after your retirement?

Doing well, Michela. I check in on this team often, but usually don't post much.

Dogs are lonely without my daughter's three other tzus. But the house seems SO MUCH bigger now.

Retirement reception for me last night (thus new photo from last night).
