I have often thought pets are kind to us by allowing us to live with,them. We aren't necessarily the brightest species around.

This is an old thread, but I am bored and I Love my dogs.

We got Bandit after a family member died his vet records showed that he had mange, but that was treated before we got him. He came to live with us almost 8 years ago. Prior to living with us he was kenneled in the house and on an extended chain in the evening. It took him a while to play nice with the other dogs when they arrived, but I am certain the activity is making him younger. He is the most loyal dog and is always between the outside door and family. I am not sure if he is protecting or trying to keep us in haha.

Remi was adopted at 4 weeks old from a rescue shelter in San Antonio by my daughter who was in college at the time. Remi had Parvo and my daughter was sure she would not get adopted because of it. When my daughter finished college She got a job near Dallas, and Remi was just going to stay with us for a while, that was 2 years ago. In her defense, her fathers heart would have been broken if she took her back.

Sandy is our first puppy. The school I work at is in a bad neighborhood. The school resource officer ran over Sandy in his car. He managed to not actually hit her, but had to physically pull her out from underneath the vehicle. She was about 3 months old, covered in fleas and had some scars on her butt that looked like they were from shot gun spray. He called animal control, but I told him to call them back and I took her home. I am guessing part pit because that is what most of the drug dealers own in the neighborhood she came from. She was 13 lbs at her first vet visit and she is 72 lbs now. I know the fluffy dog looks big, but he is 55 lbs and hair. Sandy has hip dysplasia on one side but she runs and plays just fine. We give her glucosamine supplements and the vet said surgery isn't necessary. She is the most snugly of all the dogs. She also uses her front paws like hands for hugging and holding on to you. Oddly, although she did chew a few things up, she has never had an accident in the house. My husband said it is because she doesn't want to go back to the hood. She wouldn't make it there because she has a collar, no fleas, and the smell of treats on her breath, she would get mugged for sure!

Those baby's are cute! If I remember right boxers tend to drool. But then again my dogs shed everywhere, so I guess it is always something. I really like Henry's beauty marks and one black ear.

LOLOL! I’m not sure which one is the sweetest. They are all pretty sweet. Luckily my boxers aren’t droolers, but my sister has English Mastiffs and they drool A LOT!! My husband and I have had boxers forever. There were three before these four. They are a wonderful breed. Henry is our first white boxer and also the largest boxer we’ve ever had. They are all professional snugglers and hopelessly devoted to our family. ♥️

This is my pup Zoey! Don’t let the cuteness fool you, she is HIGH MAINTENANCE! She has so much anxiety, the poor girl is afraid of everything!!i am the absolute center of her world, and would probably prefer if everyone else (my hubs and kids included!) just disappeared lol! But she’s an amazing companion and super well behaved❤️

My sweet Frankie, trying to mother a kitten we grabbed after someone threw her out a window on the highway. Frankie’s mission in life is to love, and she’s amazing at it.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
