What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?

This was supposed to be a very fun long weekend. It really hasn't turned out that way. Here's how 2007 is leaving us - Poor Diamond got sick Saturday and had to go to the V.E.T.! It turned out he had to have his bottom squeezed. Something about glands...I won't go into the details, but he also suffered the indignity of getting his nails trimmed.
Mommy rarely gets sick. But she got reeeeeally sick on Saturday afternoon. She was running a very high temperature and had to go to the human vet place on Saturday night. Daddy took her - she was there a long time and got home with Daddy early Sunday morning. She is going to be fine, but still doesn't feel very good. I am having to work extra hard in the snuggle department. I'm doing shift work with Puff and Powder and Rudy. The overtime is being paid in Temptations from Daddy. Since Mommy is my typist, I don't know how much I can visit you guys. That kind of stinks, but we might be able to get around a little.
All of us here in O HI O want to say thank-you to all of our buddies in the blogosphere - 2007 was my first year of blogging and I have made so many wonderful friends. Me and Puff and Powder and Rudy and Diamond and Mommy and Daddy want to wish all of you a very Happy New Year! We will welcome 2008 with open paws and maybe some 'niptinis and stinky goodness.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Poor Diamond, it sounds like he had his anal sacks emptied like I did when I have having my tummy troubles. - Dragonheart

We both hope your mom feels better soon! Happy New Year!

WE hope your mommie is feeling better soon. Probably the flu or someother nasty virus. Blizzie said three of her girlfriends had temps of 104 over the holidays (and sick of course)
Diamond, we hope you are feeling better and don't worry your indignities, we will not tell anycat about that humiliation.
Enjoy the last day of 2007!

love and purrs, Princess and Caesar

Oh rats! Being sick is no fun. I hope your mom feels better very soon. Parker, you are a good nurse. Happy New Year to you and your family.

Dear Parker,
Ahhhhhhhh, tell Diamond that Cookie suffered through that same problem a couple of years ago. It was painful. We're glad that's over with and you're all cleaned out. Parker, please snuggle away with your Mommy.

Tyler said...

Oh, and we all wish you the the happiest of new years!

Forty Paws said...

We are sending snuggle purrs to your Mommy!

And well, Diamond Doggie, having your anal glands expressed isn't the worst thing in the world...

Oh no! How is dear Diamond. We'll purr for his quick recovery. I had to be, um, expressed once and it bugged be for about 24 hours. Yuck. I feel for you buddy.

My beans are just getting over what your mommy has. It took about 5 days of solid rest for them to feel better. Big healing purrs to your mommy too. Tell your daddy to keep those germies away! Two sick beans just means more work for the kitties.

Great idea taking shifts. You don't want to wear yourselves out!

New Year party with sick body is not fun.
I think changing a year at the winter is for the reason. Winter is very easy to get sick, but It's also means strong and renew. So, we always welcome new year at very cold weatehr~!

I wish, for the new year, Your mommy and cute Diamond woofie could get well~!! Because new year always brings us lots of hope~!!!

Wish you will have very wonderful 2008~!!!!!! Wish you all~!!!!

Diamond, dude! That sucks. I hope you're feeling better. We hope your mom is feeling better. Dawg and kitty cuddles usually help the beans feel better, I think.

Halloween said...

Hi Parker. I am being a comfort cat tonight too! My food dude went to the people vet in the middle of the night last night, but he seems to be resting now. I sit on him all over and that seems to make him feel better. Give your people lots of people pets and they will heal up too. Happy new year.

Parker, Happy New Year! We were sad to here about Diamond Doggie and your Mommy too. We hope they are resting comfortably. We wondered why you didn't post yesterday.
