Catching up and some news

Do you know about Pets Move?  It is a cool site where you can log your dogs activity and keep a track of their weight and what they are eating. There is also different groups you can join with ideas on exercising with dogs through agility, geocaching, training and dogs with disabilities. We have been tracking all our activities there and found it really encourages us to get out and about. It is free to join and you can even win stuff - so what you waiting for. Head on over and check it out.

Mom has been busy painting and here are a couple she can show. (If they are a surprise present Mom doesn't put on them online). These two are now winging their way across the ocean to England.  The first one is that blonde bombshell - Miss Mollie and the other is the ever clever and witty Miss Molly and her cohort Pip.  Now remember - these paintings will make brilliant Christmas, birthday or any time presents and Mom is going to have A LOT of time in the coming weeks to do nothing but paint - so order now.  Now is also a good time to order your very own personalized Christmas cards too. Did you know Mom can even tun your paintings into cards for you !!!  You can check out her store here  http://cowspotdogs.com/


Now why is Mom going to have so much time to do painting you are wondering - well the Mom is going in for surgery AGAIN tomorrow - this will be like the  6th or 7th time they have tried to fix things. (Sigh - it means we won't be adventuring for awhile).   For those that don't know MY Mom was very sick in 2010 and spent nearly the whole year in hospital and had many many surgeries. Due to those surgeries she doesn't have any muscles over her stomach..... just skin to hold in the intestines and there is a constant threat they could cause the skin to tear and burst out - like they did once before - so they are going to try yet again to put in mesh to  strengthen it. They can't pull the muscles back together because they had to cut to much of it away after she got bad infections in it.  So mesh is the only option. It is a brand new type of mesh and we have our paws crossed that this time Mom's body doesn't decide it doesn't like it. She went a whole month after the last surgery before that happened. We will be busy taking care of her for the next few weeks and will be back soon. If you could spare some Power of The Paw for her - it would be much appreciated too.


  1. Oh Pip and Molly, how beautiful! Please give your mom a hug from me and I will cross my paws that the surgery goes well. All my paw-power to your mom!

  2. I love them! I've loved every one you've done. I'm so sorry about the upcoming surgery. I hope it is the best thing in the world, ultimately. I want to order 4 paintings...3 for my husband (Freedom, Casper & Nikki)and 1 for my daughter (Twinkie) for Christmas. I just have to get select (or take) my photos. I'm also interested in Christmas cards. Hopefully, you'll be plenty busy during your recovery period. I'll be in touch soon. Sending my best wishes to you.
