My Fur Baby Gets Groomed (Photos) & Sick Twins :( *A little Love Advice Thrown In To*
Fur babies, Real babies & Life In between
6-23-10- 16 weeks? Say it isn’t so….It can’t be 🙁
Hi everybody! I hope you are doing well today. Yesterday, we had a groomer who travels in one of those vans, come over to groom our little Yorkshire Terrier, Daphne. It cost more then Petco or Pet Smart, but in talking with my friend who happens to groom, just doesn’t live anywhere near me anymore, she said do NOT get your animals groomed there. That they are rough, even abusive sometimes. Treating the dogs cruelly, and I don’t know if that is actually true or not, but why take a chance, when for $25 more dollars, someone shows up at your home, pays complete attention to your animal, does the nails and all, bath, full service…It’s just worth it, and BOY did she need it. The winter did some gnarly things to this little girl’s coat, and with new twins, It’s not like I can brush her twice a day, every day, for an hour, so it was good she got a nice, short, clean cut, for the summer.
I love the way Yorkie pups look, with their flowing long mane, down to the floor, but I sware to maintain that, your Yorkie, must be like your only child, because with kids, it’s impossibly hard to maintain that, and boy did I try this winter. It looked nothing like the pictures you see in magazines or television, THAT is for sure! She did a really, really, great job! Put little bows in her hair to, which looked so sweet, but that didn’t last too long.
My daughter is a big fan of playing dress up, with the doggie, hence the blue dress you see in the pictures. (No I’m not a Paris Hilton wannabe. She enjoys the clothes stuff. It is by far NOT an every day occurrence! 😆 ). To her, that is HER baby. That is honestly what I was trying to do. I found out I was pregnant, and immediately worried about her. Of course, I love animals myself, and always wanted a cute little dog, that I could pick up for life, and snuggle with easily, plus one finally that wouldn’t shed, was a definite bonus, so it was win win for all…I get to have the cute lil pup, I wanted, and she got the same, and was able to call herself the ‘owner’, and learn how to be gentle, caring, and mothering, to another living creature.
I thought it would be a great ‘exercise’ for her, before the real baby came, and then I found out shockingly there was two, and I wondered if ANYTHING could help her after two came into our world, but it did a bit (Hubby wouldn’t let me have a second doggie, to give her the full experience though. HA, if I could save the world and take in every animal on the planet, I most certainly would. HUGE animal lover!!).
Anyway, she was a tad rough at first with her, and I was nervous, but soon after was passing the test nicely. She really enjoys the dog, and I also bought her a baby doll, so between the two, things are improving, I would say, especially now that Daph looks all purdy again, it renewed Mikayla’s interest in her for sure. I made a collage of pics, cause too many came out cute 😆

Anyhow, everybody is a bit under the weather. It started with Mikayla and spead from there. Sick babies are not fun, and it pains a parent deeply, to feel so helpless, that is for sure, but very fortunately, it hasn’t been an awful cold, quite a mild one, and only one of the babies has been very awnery about it. Skinny-minny/ Annie. She’s always the crazier more vocal twin, so that isn’t suprising. I think they will be right as rain come the next day or two.
Me and hubby were able to finally celebrate our Anniversary from last week. If they weren’t peaceful and resting we wouldn’t have gone out, but at that time, they were being quite good and feeling well, so we went out, called in a couple of times, and just rushed it alittle. You really have GOT TO get out with your husband sometimes, especially with the stress of multiples, but even with just a single baby.
If you lose the parts of you that were attracted to one another to begin with, and brought you to the place you are at today, and still hold on to the ‘couple in you’, then it all just falls apart. You lose each other, and I’m very adamant, about NOT letting that happen. Not here. Life has ALOT to do with our kids, but there is also a ‘just us’ to, and we must remember that, and celebrate it, from time to time, no matter how crazy life gets. When you lose that, It just seems very sad to me. So twins, quads, 1 child or 10 children, don’t even let that happen ok? My pearl of wisdom for the day…HE HE.
Anyhow, just been keeping a watch on the girls, nothing crazy to report. Still perplexed on the earring thing, as the appointment date creeps nearer and nearer. I’m really wanting to bail, but now all the feedback I am getting, has been, ‘Don’t do it after 4 months, do it now, it’s the best age’. Don’t stall on it. Have it done now, if not, wait until they are much older, anytime in between is no good. UGH…I thought I could just push it off alittle. I just don’t wanna see my babies hurt over earrings, though most people have told me it’s a very fast pain and over with in an instant. I don’t know, just seems like it could hurt for alittle while afterwards, but I just don’t know. Please keep helping me out on this subject.
Welp bottles to clean & mouths to feed. Catch ya later! xoxo
