Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

Sammie's Mom Here...

Hi kind blogger pals. Sam's doing okay, but she's not out of the woods yet. We are still reeling from her antics on Monday and making strides at figuring out how to do things differently. Tomorrow morning, she returns, yet again for the fourth day in a row, to the V-E-T for another evaluation. If she refuses food (huh?) again tonight, an endoscope seems to be one possibility. Just talked to her doc and he will figure out where to go from here tomorrow. (She upchuckies everything from water to 1 tsp of wet food, which she basically refuses anyway - good girl.) Thank you for all your nice words - Sam'll be jumping and playing again soon. That we do know.
Thanks for all the kind words,
Bill and Miche

p/s: Hi Sammie's mom, Sam & June's mom here, June once ate the entire block of rat poison. Those 2 months were the worst time of my life. To this day, every time I see something that has the same color green as the rat poison green on the ground I panic and will run towards it and pick it up.

Howlo, Sammie! Howlo, Bill & Miche!

I don't want you to be sick, Sammie.

I've never paw-written direct vet advice or recommendations 'cuz I'm just a Corgi, not a medical pawfessional. But I've had lotsa experience. So if you'd pawmail me, I'd like to woo-oof with you. In Sonoma County am I. ^..^ ~ Tilin Corgi

Samantha's Mom: Thank you for the amazing support. We dropped Sam off at the vet at 7am this morning. She definitely has a piece of glove left in the lower intestine, so today, she is receiving fluids, as she is so dehydrated and stay the night there (oh, we miss her presence)and have surgery to remove it early tomorrow (Friday) morning. We will be able to pick her up late tomorrow. Will get back to blogging this weekend again. I've missed reading all your posts, but can't tell you how much your generous and thoughtful comments have meant. Thank you, thank you from us all.

We have our good vibe generators going for Sammie and wish her well and a speedy and complete recovery. Please tell her that she has received a dozen kisses; 9 slobbery and 3 sandpaper.
