Happy Holidays!!!

My sisters and i wanted to wish all of our furry friends and their humans a wonderful Holiday!!!

There has been lots going on and we cant wait to tell you all about it. We would like to say that Mommy is on the pooble list because she has not blogged in quite some time, but it is for a couple of very good reasons.First, our mommy got an AMAZING job, and while she still spends lots of tie with us, she has felt that it was more important to spend time with us (since she is at work for 9 hours out of the day) than to spend time ignoring us while she is online. Although, she has kept up with your bloggies.

Second, our grandma has been having trouble with her back and had to see a spine specialist and finally had a procedure done where they had to inject die and medicine in between he vertebrae of her lower back. So, mommy has been spending a lot of time taking care of that.

Mommy FINALLY found us some hand crafted collars that she felt were perfect enough for us. They are Princess collars and they are beautiful. Mommy said that since my sisters are princess's like me, than all three of us needed princess collars. Here is a photo of them: No photo shop here...they REALLY are that blingy!

Although it is nice that mommy works very hard for her money and buys us incredibly nice things with it, I still expresses my displeasement every morning...As you can see, Truffle & Lady Godiva try to comfort me, but i still insist that mommy should work from home land stay in bed and cuddle with us all day! After all, I AM a PrincessMommy gives us each a treat Ball with a MilkBone in it and that keeps us occupied while mommy leaves. And Mommy is also convinced that those treat balls keep us busy for a long time because when Mommy gets home, this is what she finds...Truffle for some reason has had by mommy's and my standards by FAR too much energy! So mommy took Truffle over to Grandmothers house for a play date with Princess & Abbie. When Mommy returned home with Truffle, Truffle was acting kinda odd and i got suspicious so i went through the camera and this is what i found...

Truffle hanging out with Princess and they (as you can see) were both staring at something...but i couldnt figure out what had the two fo them so interested...And then a photo of Truffle and Abbie..and then i came across THIS photo!Truffle eating home made organic pumpkin pie off of a spoon! And then THIS photo...for crying out loud, shes practically sucking the pumpkin pie off mommy's finger! WHAT IS THAT ABOUT!?!?!?

HOW DARE Mommy feed her fat little bald butt pumpkin pie! and to top THAT off, not bring any pumpkin pie home for me & Godiva...THE NERVE!

And last but hot least...and Godiva will TOTALLY back me up on this one...Truffle took this picture on purpose just to add insult to injury cause she KNEW i was going to find photos of her eating pumpkin pieShe stick's her tongue out at the camera! I SWEAR she knew i was going to find out that she got pie because we didn't! i KNEW her breath smelled too good to be true and it wasn't cause mommy brushed her teeth with pumpkin toothpaste like she had said! TOOTHPASTE IS CHICKEN FLAVOR!!!

It's ok though because Godiva and i came up with a way to get back at Truffle...and we think you are going to like it...Are you ready???

What do you all think about "Rudolph Truffle" guiding Santa's sleigh this Christmas...
Or Santa's special "Elf Truffle" Helper
And just so that you don't think Lady Godiva and i are TOTALLY being mean, we decided to post a totally embarrasing photo of myself from when i was a puppy...
Sending lots of Tail Wiggles & Puppy Kisses this holiday season, We Love you all!

Recovery Time!

You sure all were right...little Lady Godiva got slipped into neutral! Here is all about her early morning journey!

The Crate that mommy put her into to take her to the place of surgery. But Godiva was FREAKING OUT So Mmmy Let her sit on mommy's lap since there was no traffic out that early and the place is only 1 1/2 miles from the home. I think that this picture was taken when Godiva finally started to realize that not only was something up, but it was NOT cool.

Then they arrivedAfter dorpping Godiva off and filling out the paperwork, mommy went straight to work. It was still totally dark outside! Crazy mommy!

Then at 2:30 PM mommy picked up Godiva and that was when mommy was told not only that SHE was going to have to go into the surgery room to get Godiva out of the cage but that once she was shown where Godiva's cage was they were going to stand back before mommy was allowed to open it...ok, now that is beyond weird and it had mommy totally baffled so she asked "why, whats going on!" and that was when they told mommy this "She isn't verry happy with us right now". this is weird mommy thought because none of us have EVER been mean to ANYONE! And let us tell you, when Godiva saw one of the workers, she started growling! she REALLY wasn't happy! But when she saw mommy, she turned into a sweet little mush puppy and once mommy was holding her she let the nice lady pet her!

So Here is Lady Godiva on the car ride homeAnd here is Lady Godiva in the Doggy Play Pen. We don't know what she is staring at in this picture, but whatever pain meds the doctors gave her must have been good! BOLAnd here is a pic of Lady Godiva's booboo from her big girl surgery

**NOTE FROM MOM: Lady Godiva's surgery went well and she did not have any seizures during or after her surgery, she was shaking really bad earlier so i called her vet and he told me just to keep her warm and quiet so she and i have been napping together and i keep her wrapped in a blanket with me at all times. Coco Bean is amazing and incredibly instinctive about being careful and delicate with Godiva right now, but Truffle on the other hand just doesn't get it and wants to play bitey face so i am keeping Truffle separate. Coco is being wonderful with keeping Godiva's eyes and nose clean (Godiva's nose has been running and her eyes are goopy from the surgery) and cuddling with Godiva (and I) which seems to help keep Godiva from shaking.

Thank you all for your warm wishes for Godiva's speedy recovery.

I Love You All,

The Mommy

Something's up again...

Hi all!

Somethings going on and me and my sisters are having trouble putting our dewclaw on it. Maybe you can help us out...Today, as soon as mommy got home from work, she let Truffle and Godiva out of the kitchen, got the carrying case out of the closet, put Godiva in it and left. Can you believe that...she didn't even play with us for 5 minutes! The nerve of her for not taking me and Truffle with her!!!

Then she comes back about 45 minutes later she comes back with Lady Godiva and feeds up immediately. Turns out that mommy took Lady Godiva to the vets office so that she could get her annual vaccines. I guess its a good thing we didn't go with mommy! Somethings really are a blessing in disguise!

It's now 8:00PM and mommy said that if we want to drink water we have to do it before 9:00PM because Lady Godiva is not allowed to eat or drink anything after 9;00PM and since we all share a water bowl, there is no way to stop Godiva from drinking water while allowing us to drink water.

Now mommy is saying that we have to go to bed early because she and Lady Godiva have to wake up at 5:30AM because she and Godiva have to be somewhere by 6:00AM.
And mommy keeps saying something about not being able to go through Godiva going through another "heat" and that she has to hurry up because it is going to happen next month. AND mommy said that Godiva is starting to act too aggressive because she is going to be going into "heat" soon so its time for her to have her "big girl surgery".

Now, i ask you...what the heck is a "big girl surgery"!?
Can you help us put our dewclaws on this mystery?

Baftime!!!

Since Coco Bean is feeling much better (and The Girls are starting to smell a little ripe) i decided it was time for them to have a bath. However, since this IS Coco Beans Blog, i will let her take over again. But before i do, i want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all your warm wishes and support. I (and Coco Bean) could not have made it this last week without you all.

Hi ya'll! Its me Coco Bean! I'm back and almost back to my healthy self thanks to you and the Power of the Paw!

Since mommy didnt have any help bathing us, we were unable to take photos of us getting our bath, but mommy WAS able to get photos of us right afterward!

Now, if you haven't noticed, Mommy's bed is very tall and you are probably wondering how we get up onto the bed. Well, Usually Mommy puts a chair next to the bed so we can get up and down easily. But, Mommy moved the chair for a little bit and when mommy turned around, Godiva was on the bed with Truffle and I.Mommy was curious as well as entertained by our after baff shenanigans and i told he i wanted a video of us playing on the bloggy so that you all could see that I and my sisters were doing well and while she was video taping us, (towards the end of the video) you will see Little Lady Godiva amaze us all with something we NEVER thought we would see... Make sure that you watch the video till the end so that you can be amazed too!

There is something that has happened that i really feel should be shared with you all. well, actually there are LOTS of things to share, but i feel that this is a very important one. 4 months ago my mommy's daddy had to take "Chocolate" his chocolate lab to the vet so that he could go to the rainbow bridge. This is a picture of our Grandpa and "Chocolate"
Chocolate was 15 years old and it was his time to go run free at the rainbow bridge with Pasko my mommy's Rottweiler (who's eyes are welled up with tears right now because i mentioned Pasko). Our grandpa was very sad and wanted another dog, but wanted the "right" dog and asked my mommy for help.

Mommy agreed, but told grandpa that it would take some time. Almost 3 months later mommy went to the pet store on a whim to buy us some surprise presents (she does this sometimes) and there happened to be a doggy adoption fair that was being hosted by "Furry Friends Rescue". Mommy thought what the heck, lets see what kind of dogs they have here today and that was when she saw him...His name was "Yasu". He was a Chihuahua/Dachshund mix who was 4-5 years old and weighed 12 pounds.Mommy called grandpa and before she could finish the sentence Grandpa was already running to the car to drive 20 miles to where my mommy was to see this little dog. Grandpa FELL IN LOVE with Yasu immediately! There was only one problem; another family had already filled out the application for Yasu one week prior and was supposed to be coming to see him to take him home. the adoption fair was over at 4:30 and they said that if the family did not show up, than Grandpa would be able to have a home inspection on Saturday!

So Grandpa waited with my mommy for three hours...and the family never came. Furry Friends Rescue told my grandpa that they would call him on Sunday to do a home inspection and to meet all the family, and if he passes, than he will be able to adopt Yasu!

All day Sunday grandpa waited and waited and did not get a call until 8:30PM when grandpa's phone made a noise and notified him that he had a voicemail. It was furry Friends Rescue! for some reason grandpa's phone was sending calls straight to voicemail so they had to leave a message but the message had been left in the afternoon and it was too late for an inspection. So they made arrangements to do a home inspection for Monday morning and 30 minutes into the home inspection/interview grandpa was approved to take home Yasu!

But Yasu's adoption family was in the same city as me and my mommy and grandpa lives 20 miles away so Mommy offered to meet grandpa right off the freeway and show him how to get to the house where Yasu was living.

Yasu was very shy and timid. He had been in 4 different foster homes in 3 months. It is very obvious that Yasu's original owners were not good to him, but Yasu has warmed up and recognize that he is now in his forever home. He is amazing to walk on a leash too...he never walks ahead or behind you and stops at every corner and looks up at whomever is walking him for his next direction. He is SUCH a joy to be around. He LOVES me and my sisters and LOVES to be on a humans lap all the time!

Grandpa calls my mommy almost every day since he got Yasu and thanks her for finding him such an amazing dog. Grandpa takes Yasu to work with him every day, and even takes him into business meetings at customers offices! He's practically become the business mascot!

Thats all for now friends...and don't forget to kiss your humans!

UPDATE: Coco The Princess can come home

i of course couldnt wait till 10am to call the vet so i called at 9:05am (can you blame me?) i was told that Coco Bean's blood work had come back but i needed to wait to get a hold of the doctor on the phone so that he could go over the results, and she would call me back.

While this was a totally justifiable response, i still had questions, and i just couldn't wait till the doctor was in to have those questions answered. I needed to know how she did last night, did she eat anything, did she pooble or weeble!? Please for the love of ANYTHING tell me SOMETHING! The girl was very kind and told me that Coco Bean had eaten a couple of nibbles of her food, she had in fact weebled and poobled a little bit. I wanted to know if it was a nice firm pooble or was it still bad poobles (am i a mom or what!?). the girl could not tell me though as she did not know that much detail but promised she would call me back.

at 9:59am my phone rang and it was Alta View. I could not have answered the phone faster if there had been a fire under my butt! I was told that Coco Bean's liver values were high and that she has an infection in her intestine. We do not know how Coco Bean got an infection in her little intestine. She had spoken to the vet and he said that if Coco Bean had eaten and ws drinking water, she could go home.

I pulled up in front of Alta View within 15 minutes of getting this call. The girl gave me a copy of the blood work and put the vet on the phone for me. We do not know how Coco Bean got an infection in her intestine. His only guess dates back to when she was a wee little puppy and she was sold to me WAY before she was old enough to be separated from her mother. Coco Beans Mommy was so emaciated that she was not able to breast feed her puppies. puppies get their anti-bodies and immune systems from their mommy's milk. Coco Bean was not so fortunate and never got those anti-bodies cause her mommy wasn't able to feed her puppies. As a result, Coco Bean has a weakened immune system and is susceptible to getting sick easily.

As i waited for them to bring Coco Bean out to me, i looked at the wall of fame and adoptable fur-kidsAnd then it happened...the tech brought my precious little Coco Bean out to me. I was SO happy, i cried. I couldnt help it...i was just SO happy to see my baby, and to see her little perky tail wagging. I paid for her antibiotics and an additional anti nausea injection.

I put my little Precious Coco Bean in my jacket (this is where she LOVES to hang out while we go on outings) and we walked to the car. The whole way to the car i was smothered with Coco Kisses...absolutely SMOTHERED and i couldn't have been happier about it!

Then she gave me that look..you all know the look. The look that says "Mommy can we go home now!?"
You can see in this photo how the sided of her face are a little sunken in from the weight loss. But she is home and happy right now. Truffle and Godiva were SO happy to see her, and Coco Beans tail has not stopped wagging.

Coco Bean has two weeks of antibiotics ahead of her. I have been told to keep a super close eye on her and monitor how much she eats and drinks. This will be easy compaired to how hard the last 24 hours has been.

But i really cant thank you all for all your support. I firmly believe that it was the Power of the Paw that got Coco Bean through last night and brought her home to me.

I will update daily on coco Beans recovery.

Again, from the bottome of my heart, i really cant thank you all enough for sending me the Power of the Paw and keeping me in your prayers and thoughts. I love you all!

UPDATE: Coco Bean is Super Sick :(

I called the vet at 4:05pm and he told me that Coco Bean has not improved and that he needs to keep her overnight.

I was told that i am to call back at 10:00am tomorrow morning.

Coco Bean is super sick :(

for two days now Coco Bean has been acting lethargic. today when we got home from breakfast Coco Bean was shivering and still refusing to eat her doggy breakfast just as she did last night with her doggy dinner. I also noticed that she was shedding really bad and her little body was really warm to the touch.So i called her doggy doctor and htey fit us right into their schedule.

the vet came in and took her temperature and it immediately shot up to just over 104 and slowly kept climbing. He took my little Coco Bean away from me and took her into the back room.

She has lost 1/2 a pound in the past 2-3 days which doesnt seem like much, but her a dog her size it is a lot...her little spine was starting to stick out.

He is running blood work and giving her IV fluids. I was told that i can not take her home right now because they want to watch her for the rest of the afternoon.

I know she is in good hands, but i cant help but to sit here at home with tears in my eyes because i know my little Princess is sitting in a cage not understanding why seh isnt in her mommy's arms.

i was todl to call the vet at 4:30 (2 1/2 hours) to see if i can pick her up today.

here is a photo that i took of her (and Lady Godiva who wanted to keep her company) before we got to the doctors.and here is a photo that i took of Coco Bean a friend of mine (who loves and adores them as much as i do) before the doctor took her away to the back observation room... Please keep My little Coco Bean in your prayers and thoughts.

Sending you all tail wiggles & puppy kisses from The Girls and myself.

Lot's to update you all on...

First off, Mom is TOTALLY on the Pooble list!
She has tried bribing us with Frosty Paws, but were not sure were ready to forgive her for neglecting our Bloggy for so long. She says that she has a good excuse because our Grandma was very sick for a while and she was taking care of Grandma, and also because in he spare time she was making Jewelry for her website, but...me and my sisters are holding our ground...we wanna see how long we can milk all this special treatment.

Grandma is doing MUCH better now and is back to her perky normal self. In face, Grandma has officially adopted Abbie's mommy Princess!And Princess settled right in immediately!
Princess is a GREAT cuddler just like us and Mommy LOVES snuggling Princess! And believe you and me when i tell you that Princess LOVES to be snuggles by EVERYONE!

Me and my sisters LOVE going to Grandma's house and playing with Princess & Abbie...but abter a couple of hours...we get pooped out and then we crash on the sofa for a little while to recharge our doggy batteries...then its back to Romping and Rolling! (Does it look like our mommy just might be an animal lover???)

While at Grandma's Godiva discovered something Grandma call's "Treat Ball". Well, to say the least, Godiva went absolutely WILD about this Treat Ball so Grandma gave it to her.And now she wont share...EVEN WHEN IT'S EMPTY!
Mommy got a new purse...I think I might like it...After all, a Chihuahua like me needs to ride in style... Don't ya think???

Truffle; the wild child who couldn't sit still for more than a few seconds had decided that she is a lap dog and is supposed to be sleeping in mommy's bed with mommy and me!!!
Now, I bet you are sitting in your favorite computer spot looking at this photo of Truffle saying "Aww, that is so cute. But, test assure you are only saying this becasue you haven't seen how she sleeps! Its scarry and I have the proof! Watch this Video and then tell me what you think:
video

Aside from Truffle's usual silly self, she has decided to take up a new hobby...Pole Dancing!
Now, hows that for a doggy trick!?
