Do they have Jenny Craig --- for Dogs ? :)

We sure love our dogs  :)  Facebook has been really sad in the dog community lately.  There have been trips to the Rainbow Bridge, some expected, some not. There have been sudden illnesses, some with a good outlook, some not.  I feel for everyone of you, and I appreciate so much more the wonderful comments I received from all the dog people  :)  Especially the ones who have lost their furry loved ones. Very sad reminders.  You are all great and wonderful people. It's a privilege to be included in your lives, even though it's only by a Facebook posting  :)

I still miss my B.F.F.F, My Best Friend Forever Farfel -- terribly. Now, instead of torturing myself with wanting him back -- which sadly, can never happen. I try to fill my head with all of the crazy, funny things he used to do -- and all of the great memories. It does help :)

Now, for my N.B.F.F.S. -- my New Best Friend Forever Star  :)  As you know, I was calling Nancy, breeder/groomer/Star's former mommy,  every day last week to see if Star had her babies!  Well, on Thursday when I called, Nancy said -- come pick her up, she is having a false pregnancy, and there won't be any babies. Well, I got there as soon as I could, and Sweet Star came running out to me -- such a good feeling  :)  I can honestly say, Star, as I, was smiling  :)  Nancy told me she was over her due date and would not be having puppies. I was sad, and happy at the same time. No puppy to succeed Farfel -- or give the anticipation I was so looking forward too ... but... Star was coming home. I was glad.  I asked Nancy -- is there any possibility that .. Oh hey... guess what.. Star has her puppies at my house ?? As I have said -- I don't know Nothin' 'bout birthin' no puppies!  Nancy assured me that "There's nothing in her!" OK, Nancy is the expert with over 30 years experience :)  Star and I zooomed home  :)

I have heard of false pregnancies, but didn't know much about them. A dog exhibits all of the signs and symptoms that a dog with a true pregnancy experiences. Of course, Star HAS to be different  :)  Nancy said it isn't rare, but said it was probably due to Star not being in good shape to be bred. Ok, Star gained a few pounds!! In my defense, had I known that Star was going to be bred, which I did not,  I might have sent her to Jenny Craig, or at the very least forced her to watch "Sweatin' to the Oldies" with Richard Simmons!!  Seriously, why can't dogs who have false pregnancies gain false pounds ????    So, Star and I are going to work on getting our figures back.... hehehe.. I can hear Farfel chuckling now  :)

Star is home, and very happy -- digging huge holes in my backyard  :)  She is enjoying being the prinCESS..and ... I am enjoying spoiling her  :)  She's my little sweet girl  :) I am sure that one day, Farfel's memory will only bring me laughs, and happiness :)  Not yet though :(  Star is helping in her own special way :)

Patti, and Star

We are going to have some false ice cream, and some false if we gain any weight, it won't exist ------  or something like that  :) 


  1. I will happily eat some "false" chips and salsa and have a "false" beer along with it to celebrate Jenny Craig day! I am sure Star will get her figure back soon....

  2. You may be on to something. We're sorta liking this idea of False Ice Cream and False Pizza. Just look at all the good things that are developing out of this situation. We're pretty sure Farfel would be happy, too. Or, rather, is happy. He's watching down, you know.

    Sending the best of wishes for a complete and speedy recovery for Star. In the meantime, The Lovely Miss Fergi is begging to celebrate with a False Treat. (We're so glad that Star is home and where she should be ... forever.)

  3. We are just loving this post! We're sorry that you aren't having little puppers, Star. You will have them for real when you're good and ready but for now you gotta be a NBFF to Miss Patti!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly
