My Grandma

Hi, everyone!  I know I've been gone for a long time but Momma, Daddy, and I have been really busy helping Grandma and Grandpa.  Here is a note from Mom:

As many of you know, my mom (aka Twix and Taffy's grandma) has been fighting leukemia for several years.  She was the most courageous fighter I've ever seen.  There have been several times that we thought she would not be here more than a few days but she always fought her way back.  Unfortunately, no matter how hard she was fighting in her mind and in her spirit, her body was no longer able to keep fighting.  She passed away comfortably at home on Tuesday.  I've always known my mom was a strong woman but I never realized how strong until this past year.  She was a beautiful and amazing woman who touched many lives.  

Thank you for being a wonderful woman, Mom.
I will miss you every day for the rest of my life.

Thank you to our blogging friends who have provided support to our family over the years.  You guys put so many smiles on her face when she was down.

Lampshade Model

I'm planning to get back to work at the Blogville City Offices this week but, I've been injured.  I have something called a hot spot on my toes. 

It goes down in between my toes and is very sore.  I know, it isn't pretty but the worst part is that the V.E.T. says I did it to myself!  I am not very happy that my doctor said that......

....as you can see by my face.
Momma says I have to wear this all the time because I won't leave my sore alone and because the V.E.T. says it would be bad for me to lick the medicine off of it.

I have to go back to the doctor on Tuesday and hopefully I won't be a lampshade model when I get home because my sore is looking a lot better now.

My grandma is home from the hospital and doing better.  She is still on oxygen and her V.E.T. told her that it might be a while before she doesn't need it any longer.  She is still weak but we live close by so Daddy and Momma can help her and Grandpa most days.  Grandma has to get plasma and platelets several times a week due to her leukemia.  

Thank you all for sending her lots of POTP and prayers while she was in the hospital.  She was really, really sick and needed as much help as she could get.  I know she is also thankful for your support. 

For Stanley's eyes only:
I've really missed you but I'm glad to be back to work so I can admire your Monkey Buns!

Grandma Update

Thank you to everyone who has been sending POTP for my grandma.  She is still in the hospital and will be for at least another week.  She has the para-influenza virus which is very serious for people that have compromised immune systems.  As Stanley and Murphy mentioned on the POTP blog, her leukemia is no longer in remission but her virus is a separate issue from the leukemia.  Of course, each one affects the other but the virus is not caused by the leukemia.  

Her breathing has improved since she went into the hospital.  She went to the hospital because she couldn't keep her oxygen levels at a safe level on her own.  She remains on oxygen but her level is more consistent and doesn't drop as frequently as it had been earlier so we are all encouraged.  I know several of you remember when this all started with my Grandma and it has been several years.  She is a strong lady and she will fight through this again.

Taffy and Grandma 2012

Thank you so much for keeping her in your thoughts and prayers.  It may be a little bit before I can get back to Blogville City Hall......hopefully, I don't get fired!

Mayorz Marathon Miles 17 Through 20

I hope you guys all had a great time listening to our
Blogville DJ, Sweet William!

Welcome to miles 17, 18, 19, and 20!

Some strange changes have happened during the race and it looks like Easy is the only one catching on. 

More short dogs at the head of the race?

Looks like the big dogs are catching up to the littler ones.

Sugar might be starting to figure this out too.

Who let Shyla run near a mountain?

What is Roxy talking about?
There must be an issue with Taffy's mom....

Oh, no!  Murphy has lost Ruby....or has Ruby lost Murphy?
I bet I know where she is!

So, this is how the short dogs are in the lead.
Very strange for Stanley to do something like that.

Oh!  It looks like Stanley was just having a night mare!
It's a good thing he was dreaming cuz he coulda gotten thrown outta office.

Wyatt was able to get away from the pack and have a quiet moment.

You will have to go to
Frankie and Ernie's
in order to find out who is really in the lead of this race.

The Rest of the Story


Before you read this post be sure to go to 
to see what Stanley and Taffy were caught doing.

So, Stanley and I had been talking about doing something to help out the pets in our community.  We were both aware of Joe getting hurt and decided to do something to help.  We thought if we were able to take some hay to him it would help out with their medical bills.  We had to keep our plan a secret in order to make our gift a surprise which explains all the whispering.

We had no idea that our conversation in the supply closet was overheard.

Stanley and I were so happy to be helping out our community.

 It was pawesome hearing Frankie talk to himself!

Yes, I did go for a roll in the hay....ALONE!

But I didn't know I was still wearing it....

I was shocked to find that Murphy was so worried he hired Sarge to figure out what was going on.

And I was shocked again to find out that Sarge actually tailed us!

Some of the rumors made me BOL!

Really, you guys thought I would put Stanley's life at risk? 
You have met my dad before, right?

Stanley and I are so happy that Joe loved our gift!

For those of you who aren't aware, Joe was badly injured recently but he is doing much better now.  His injuries were quite frightening and it was important for Stanley and I to show our support.

A special Thank You to Stanley, Frankie, Sarge, Joe, and Marg for all their help with this story line.  It was a lot of fun!!!
