The Nuclear Puggle

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

So it is now June 2019 and our Bumblerman is still doing pretty well!  He has lived longer with diabetes than without, he has had eye surgery to restore sight in one eye, and most recently has dealt with side effects from flea and tick topical medication.  He had us quite scared with his trembling and confusion, but plenty of water and benedryl have helped a lot. 
Love and licks from Bumbler <3 p="">

So Mom was talking to peeps at work about my FB page, and she mentioned that I had a blog but she hadn't helped me put a post up in a long time.  Boy is that an understatement!!!  A LOT has happened, and she promises we will get this blog up to date!  First up.... a current photo of yours truly!  And keep checking for her to tell everyone my stories!

So Much Has Happened (since my last post)

 Sorry it has been so long since I have posted anything... A lot has happened!!  Mom and Dad say my di a beat us is under control and that I am very good about getting my shots twice a day.  My vet, Dr. Faulls, agrees!  I really like her, except when she says not to eat too many treats.
  We had an addition to the family in December.. 
We adopted Zack from the Animal Welfare Association.  He came to NJ from a shelter in GA.  I overheard Dad tell someone that Zack was on death row but we saved him.  Don't know what that all means, but I'm glad I have a little brother,  He is about a year old but that was all we knew. Mom and Dad did a DNA test on him and we learned that he is a mix of Welsh Terrier (25%), Brittany Spaniel (25%), Weimeraner (25%), Jack Russell, Bull Dog and Pulli (11% for all 3) and oddly 14% Chinese Crested!

So my folks decided to do the DNA test on me and Ruby. We all know that I have always been a BIG puggle, I weigh 34 pounds now but I was 42 pounds before I got sick. Well... turns out I'm a second generation puggle. My father was a pug/beagle mix but my mother was a pug/English Foxhound mix! Well I still say i am a puggle!!
Ruby was the last to be tested. We always thought she was pure beagle. But as she got older, it looked like her legs were too short and her body too round (sorry Ruby) to be all beagle. Mom thought she was part Basset Hound, and Dad agreed. We were all really surprised to find out she is 3/4Bbeagle and 1/4 Pembroke Welsh Corgi! So that explains the slightly pointy nose, short legs and the fluffy fur around her chest and neck.
We are quite the mixed up happy family!!!

In the Hospital

Our poor little Bumbler is in the hospital. He started vomiting profusely, and when we took him to the vet his blood sugar was 400! He had never been diagnosed as diabetic, but apparently he became so without showing a lot of signs. He has always been a huge water drinker, and after his check-up in September we were trying to help him lose a couple of pounds. He had quickly slipped into a diabetic crisis.
The good news from the hospital today is that he is responding well to the insulin and has started eating and holding down his food. Hopefully he will be home soon!

Halloween 2011

Hiya all good Pups!! Yes we have been away for quite some time. Mom and Dad have been really busy, and they have both spent some time in the house-spit-all whatever that is! But they are both able to play a lot more with us. And Mom agreed tonight to help me show you how we spent Halloween this year!!

I know this looks really silly.... but I'm a chicken!! I love chicken so much I'm told I'll turn into one.... so this makes sense!! OK not really. I kinda don't like dressing up, but sometimes I just can't get out of it!

As you can see Ruby is not very happy as a Ru-Bee-gle. BOL I crack myself up!! But seriously look at those crazy eyes! She scares me sometimes!

Well we have had enough of this dress up playtime! C'mon can we take this stuff off now? Please????

And then Mom and Dad found part of my first Halloween costume. They must have only saved the head so they made Ruby wear it, and now she haz a sad.

All in all we had a very happy Halloween. Mom and Dad don't let us help hand out candy. Haha guess they know most of it would end up in our tummies!!

Licks to all you pups!!

WOW what a weekend, first we hear about Santa Paws coming soon and then as if on cue, it started to snow tonight! I love snow! Ruby never saw snow before tonight, this is her first winter!

Ruby gets her first experience with snow! She wasn't sure what was going on at first but she figured it out pretty quick. Pop made her a snowball and she played with it until she broke it.

Then Pop made me a snowball and I don't play with them, they are like a winter delicacy to me. Almost like a snow cone. Just don't eat the yellow ones.

After we played for awhile, ate some snowballs, and frolicked, Pop decided to throw some snow at me and Ruby. Ruby ran away but I got a big plop right on the head as you can see in the video. And you can hear Ma and Pop thought it was kind of funny. I did not!


Sorry if the videos are hard to see, this was my Pops first time trying the new video camera.

We Just got the news...

It's December and that means that it's almost Christmas. I gotta get my list together!

I got the news that Santa Paws was coming soon! Time to be a real good boy!

And a little bit of kissing up couldn't hurt!

Ruby got the news too but didn't know how to take it.

So she went into shock!

Until we decided to play a little bitey face.

I was winning.

I don't think this is what Santa Paws has in mind when he says we better be good for goodness sake!

So we got real tired and decided to take a nap and have visions of sugar plums ... wait, who am I kidding, I had visions of Schmacklepuffs!

Ruby just dreams about raw hides!

Then she woke up and decided she wanted to know more about this Santa Paws. So Ma and Pa told her all about him and she couldn't help but notice the part about Santa Paws only visiting the good doggies.

Just the good ones? Really? Uh oh!
