Buster: A Sad Goodbye to a Loving Friend

We had to make the difficult decision to let Buster go today. He was 16 1/2, an age we never expected him to reach, having had osteosarcoma in 2008.


We adopted Buster from a JRT rescue when he was only nine months old. We were the third family to have him, and this (as with most rescued dogs) was not his fault. His first home decided to "switch to poodles," which landed Buster and another JRT with the rescue. His second home had children, who tortured him by cutting his hair and painting his nails with green sparkle polish (green really isn't his color), among other things. When we adopted him, his hair had mostly grown in, but there were still signs of that hideous polish on his claws - I would have reacted poorly to children, too!


He was such a loyal boy, following Brad around the house like a lost waif, and barking incessantly when Brad wasn't at home. He loved playing with Trouper and Lucy, having his belly scratched for hours on end, and just cuddling next to his humans. He was also a typical wiry terrier, ready for a tussle and not willing to give up. He would chase animals - not the usual squirrels or rabbits, but deer. We have no idea what he thought he'd do if he actually caught something 10 times his size, but who really knows what goes on in the minds of these tiny terriers who think they're the size of Wolfhounds.



Here's to a devoted and loyal friend, a companion like no other, and a true little fighter. We'll miss you, Boo. Very, very much.

Review: Fromm's Liver Treats

So far, 2014 has not been good to Charlie. A few weeks ago, she hurt her knee. Although we've been careful with her, it didn't improve so we went back to the vet on Saturday who sent us to an orthopedist today. The orthopedist confirmed that her ACL is completely torn, and needs to be repaired. Has anyone ever tried to keep a pogo stick still? Because that's what it's going to be like after she has surgery. Eight weeks of telling a pogo stick not to jump.

"Ma, why are we at the vet, you know I HATE it here!"

Maybe it's just me, but food always makes things better, and Charlie deserved something yummy following her trip to the vet. Recently, Chewy recruited our team of expert noshers to review Fromm's Dog Treats, and the timing to open these babies couldn't be better!

You should know that I'm very careful about my dogs' food and treats. Fromm's has nutritious and delicious foods and treats for cats and dogs, and they're made right here in the US. That's particularly important to me with all the recalls we've been reading about. And, when I give my pups treats, I want them to be healthy and tasty. These treats are perfect - they're a low-fat recipe made from real liver. Plus, they're not huge! I HATE HUGE DOG TREATS! These are a good size - about the size of a dime - perfect for treating without over doing it.



I asked Charlie the Patient if should would take a break from resting her leg to give one a try:

The ears are definitely interested
"Sure, I'll have another!"

Charlie was very happy. But, who can take one dog's word for it? I had to recruit a few others, just to be sure…

Anyone want to try one? Hmm. I guess so...

Score!

Me too!

Well, there's proof that Fromm's Liver Recipe Low-Fat Dog Treats are a popular choice among the four-leggers in this household!

Now, if I can just get them to stop staring at me for more…
