Tuesday Thanks and Thoughts

A lot of you admired our new header

Well we want to give a great big thank you to 
Ann at Zoolatry for her wonderful design!

And another thank you goes to

Our friends at Chewy.com

They surprised Mom with a tower of goodies!

We do not know any other company that treats its customers as well as they do.
We are honored to be a #ChewyInfluencer!

On another note:
Mom is having issues with her blood pressure being too high
So far tests on her heart are normal but the medicine they put her on makes her tired and woozie and is not totally controlling it. The holidays has made it difficult to get back with the doctor but she hopes to see someone today. 
We have our paws crossed they can get things figured out soon.

  1. POTP that your mom feels better soon. Sick people don't give as much love and treats in our experience! Love the header and love Chewy. Wish we could be customers.

  2. Hari OM
    Adding to my POTP list!!! BP can be a b***** to get balanced, so I hope the medics can figure it out. Meanwhile, yes, the banner is brilliant!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. Well, you know what is really good for high blood pressure: stroking a pet! So, you two had better get ready to be stroked!!

    Have a great 2018 by the way.

  4. Miss Ann does tremendous work!
    We hope your mom feels better soon, girls♥

  5. Huggy Puggies,
    We are so sorry your sweet mom is still struggling to gain control of the BP again. I hope and purr she can see someone today too.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  6. We sure hope they get you mom's BP under control and she is feeling better! Chewy is spoiling many of our friends!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  7. Chewy.com sure does seem to take care of their customers! Hoping your Mom can get her health all sorted out and that you all have a good new year.

  8. I am sending POTP to your mom! Its no fun to be out of wack all of a sudden with high blood pressure! We hope the right doctor comes along with some magic bubbles to make her all better.

  9. Chewy does know how to treat its customers. We hope your mom gets the blood pressure sorted out quickly.

  10. We love your new header! Very nice! Ghostwriter, the nurse, says she hopes your Mom can get her blood pressure under control. That's very important. There are many different kinds of blood pressure medicine these days. Hopefully Mom will find one that works without so many side effects.

  11. That new header really is gorgeous!!!
    We will say a prayer for your mom!

  12. We were admiring your new header on our last visit and thought it could very well be a Zoolatry design. We need to wait for Ms. Ann to get back from her vacation to make us a new one. We are going to have to use our one from prior to Christmas and Mr. Timber has grown a lot since then.

    We hope Mom can get her meds worked out. Our Dad takes two different bp meds and is very fortunate that they work well for him.

  13. Crossing our paws for your momma. I think maybe she's just pretending so she can lounge around and eat the tower of goodies!

  14. Well fingers and paws crossed your health problems can be resolved. With your brother passing and your husband's mother needing care those are stressors. We do loves Ann's work. She did a wonderful header for Princess Leah at Christmas.
    Happy and a Healthy New Year

  15. Mom normally has OK blood pressure but if she's missed out on sleep while working it goes way up. She does deep breathing and that helps a LOT. Slow breathing and meditative practices such as qigong, yoga, and tai chi decrease stress hormones, which elevate renin, a kidney enzyme that raises blood pressure. Try 5 minutes in the morning and at night for low blood pressure. Inhale deeply and expand your belly. Exhale and release all of your tension.

    Then give the dog a treat.

  16. We have our paws crossed for your mom and hope the doctors can find a medication that will work for you.

  17. Your new header is gorgeous and Ann certainly does amazing work! I hope that your blood pressure gets under control. My husband deals with that too and when they change his meds it always takes a bit to level it out.

  18. Miss Ann does such pretty work!! We are sending love and snuggles to your Mama in hopes that the doctor can get her BP evened out!

  19. So thoughtful. The folks at Chewy's are pawsome!
