KING JD update

So..... my JD is a drama queen. To say that he is "milking" his post op would be a grave understatement.  If this were a cow, she would be Elsie the Wisconsin champion Dairy Queen!

Look , I wanna be all kids of supportive with the boy, but I mean... what a "man"... what a male behavioral model he is...  ONE eye only... k?  ONE eye.  One little cataract. He comes home sporting a dual frontal poodle paw. He is wearing a clear collar and he will not eat or drink until the thing is taken off of him. SERIOUSLY. He is the picture of "paw-thetic".

Let's not forget that he spent last night issuing orders to the two leggeds. You should have seen him.
Growl- I want to go sit by the window. Growl, I want to try the bed. Growl. I want a chewie.  Growl, I am bored. Growl. Rub my belly.  I am talking orders non stop.  He issued so many orders I thought we were in the army and he was a drill Sargent.

But, let's focus on the hoomans. Having "recovered from the trauma" of their golden boy's disability..[ eye roll]  and having agreed that expensive means worth it when it comes to his sight...[eye roll, again--I do not think the same standard was applied to his "olives" as those came off without ceremony-- I am just saying...] they spent the entire night and all of today catering to his every suggestion of a whim. Heck, I am thinking I should give this cataract thing a try.

Maybe not.  But momma is all kinds of "soft" when it comes to JD, even though...she had the same cataract stuff done, BOTH eyes, and you know what??? Daddy did not fall apart, not even one bit and she did not have everyone catering to her whims. Heck... nobody hardly noticed squat. Oh yea, she is not male.  But she spent today tap dancing on the head of a pin to make JD happy...

He had his pressure check. All A- ok.   Dinner was served and hand fed to his royal pain in the tuchus. He got belly rubbed.  Thank Dogness for Cosmo. He is the "distractor" as that boy is all kinds of energy and craziness,

Moi?  The Wendy?  Yea, we are thrilled JD is ok..  But when he is better... he will pay. Trust me he will.

Oh, his royal pain in the tuchus would like me to convey a message:

"Please thank everyone, four and two leggeds who prayed for me, supported my pawrents and conveyed their best wishes. I do love social media. [what a shock...] I appreciate and love everyone of you. I apologize for not writing sooner, but you know, I do feel like a one eyed Jack and I am recovering  [Oh boy, I do want to gag right now...MEN!]

Thank you Dr Neidlestein and staff. I am not really sure what you did.  I think I fell asleep..., but Yellow CAT better realize that he cannot hide from me anymore! So, I do have one question...Who thought it was funny to give this Bichon -Poodle Paws?????? - I am not happy with that part, I just wanted to let you know and I will be dropping off a picture of a Poodle next to a Bichon so that you can use it as a reference point in your OR.  I will be spending the next few weeks explaining to some two legged that NO- I am not a POODLE... thanks..."

His royal pain in the tuchus has declined any pictures. He went on a tirade about flash and his poor retina... blah blah blah.  so no pics. For now.

But we shall be posting  those, soon.

Meanwhile, I am breaking in Cosmo. But that's a dif post!

Case Background

A Settlement has been reached in class action lawsuits claiming that Waggin’ Train or Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treat products imported from or containing ingredients imported from China (“Dog Treat Products”) were defective and that some pets may have become sick and/or died after consuming the products. A list of the Dog Treat Products can be found here. Defendants Nestlé Purina PetCare Company and Waggin’ Train, LLC have denied any wrongdoing. The Court has not decided which side is right.

Defendants have agreed to create a $6,500,000.00 cash Settlement Fund from which eligible consumers and/or pet owners may receive a cash payment for up to 100% of certain documented economic damages related to their purchase of or their pet’s consumption of the Dog Treat Products, after the payment from the Settlement Fund of the costs of notice and Claims Administration, attorneys’ fees, Class Representative awards, costs, and taxes. Economic damage means the expenses you incurred related to your purchase or your pet’s consumption of the Dog Treat Products, and include veterinary screening or treatment bills and other expenses related to your pet’s illness and/or death.

For each of your pets that used or consumed Dog Treat Products, you may recover up to 100% of certain reasonable economic damages you claim you suffered if you can provide documentation showing the economic damage.

In addition to compensation for expenses supported by documentation, you may also receive up to a $300 payment per pet for reasonable economic damages for which you do not have supporting documentation. You must still complete a Claim Form and provide information about your economic damages to be eligible for payment of your undocumented expenses.

The total amount available for product reimbursement is $700,000, and the total amount available for healthy screenings is $100,000. Reimbursement of Claims may be subject to certain pro rata reductions and other limitations described on this website.

SUBMIT A CLAIM The only way to get a payment. Submit your Claim Form by mail, facsimile or email (.pdf) to the Claims Administrator no later than April 1, 2015.
EXCLUDE YOURSELF Get no payment. This is the only option that allows you to not be bound by the final judgment and release and to be part of any other lawsuit concerning the issues being settled now. You must exclude yourself from the Settlement Class by no later than February 10, 2015.
COMMENT ON THE PROPOSED SETTLEMENT Write to the Court about why you support or oppose the proposed Settlement. If you want to object to the Settlement, you must do so in writing by May 25, 2015. Filing an objection does not exclude you from the Settlement.
GO TO THE FINAL APPROVAL HEARING Ask to speak to the Court about the proposed Settlement at the Final Approval Hearing, scheduled for June 23, 2015 (date subject to change).
DO NOTHING Get no payment. You will not be able to bring or be part of any other lawsuit concerning the issues being settled now, and you will be bound by the final judgment and release in this case.

Wordfull Wednesday

I know, it's supposed to be wordless Wednesday...BUT I have many words and many many thoughts.

First of all, the noisy strangers. You know momma has been allowing strangers in our home, and they are noisy messy, dusty, and all around unwelcomed by me. They all need to go home and stay out of MY house.

Second. Changes. What the hey momma. Every time I turn around you are changing something. Really? I am all about new dog beds, but you even let Cosmo come live here. I have to be honest. At first, I was not really thrilled with this. You are MY person. Sharing you is not my preferred status.

But, I must say, so far the interloper has been a hoot to watch.  He is food and toy obsessed, he blitzes like the wind, he is fixated on momma -too bad for him- because she is mine and while I share,  I am not giving her up. And then there is that whole sneezing thing, Cosmo freaks out when momma sneezes. He literally freaks out and has to sniff her up and make sure she is OK.

Hellooooo boy, momma is the poster momma of allergies. She will sneeze 100 times a day because of dust [strangers in my house are making dust like it is their job....I am just saying they NEED to leave] she will sneeze at everything and anything.  Get used to it. "Lergies" is her middle name.

Ehmm Cosmo, jumping in momma's lap is admirable, but there is a time and a place. The bathroom should be off limit. [Yea, if you are reading this, the imagery is 'nuff to make you swear off of Bichons]

Cosmo, We have noticed that yesterday you did not suckle the duckie once. In fact... I moved it for you and you still have not noticed.  But we did notice that you found Max's toy and that you have been hiding it in various places.  You are still not quite secure enough to want to play in the back yard. But that too shall come. 

Now listen boy. Tomorrow JD is having cataract surgery. The hoomans round here are on pins and needles. Momma will be weepy and hysterical by morning and impossible to calm down. When the woman gets started she leaks like a drippy faucet. Back off, let a pro deal with her, It is my hugs and kisses that work to calm her down. Have you noticed she keeps kissing JD on the head and telling him it will be all ok?  Yea, that's hooman self soothing.  It really does not work. There will be pacing, hand wringing, phone calls, more weeping and until JD is back home and sleeping, our world will be in flux. So... having warned you, you need to understand that they cope better with stuff being done to them rather than having stuff done to us. 

Oh yes, Cosmo, no FREE SNIFFIES.  Not yet boy.  On my time table not yours. And why are you obsessed with wearing your TBFR collar? I had one, I still have it.... in the armoire.  If I am going to wear a collar it better be my Coach collar!  

Oh, before I forget, Cosmo, the Wendy wants you to know; SHE IS WATCHING YOU!

And I want you to know... I AM WATCHING YOU!

And what is this offering up the belly thing you have been doing??? Kind of forward of you this early, no?

Just remember, I am the alpha dog in this here pack.


[JD and Wendy are laughing and snickering at that statement]
