Nurse Auntie Bailey Arrives....

Babystan here...such goings on...sheesh...I'm allowed to post cuz Lacie's still sick and Scruffy is um well broke from the poker night and he sez he has a headache or something.

It was quite the scene this weekend. Scruffy invited all these dogs for poker...Butchy picked a bunch of 'em up in his plane. Lacie finally fell asleep, I'm thinkin' Agatha might have given her a few smoothies to sip...by the looks of that pic in our last post, Ags musta sipped on a few of 'em herself. Anyway, there was this hooge poker pawty here...that chicken Asta brought from Noah's was the dealer. She was amazin'...anyway in the midst of all this chaos, that lovely lass from Scotland strolled in...Auntie Bailey, the famous (and very strict) Scottish nurse.

Consider the scene...Agatha passed out on the patient's bed, Asta givin' Vespa rides on the sofa, a chicken dealin' the cards, and enuff cigars bein' smoked to set the house on fire. She broke up that poker pawty pretty fast. The nurses were ALL given demerits....cept for Koobie...she was in the bathroom, lucky girlie (I think somethin' didn't agree with her tummy.) Snickers got yelled at for nursin' in her pj's..."NOT AN APPROPRIATE UNIFORM,"...Agatha got the brunt of it...somethin' but never SITTING on a patient's bed much less passin' out on it...Khyra was scolded for brushin' her fur on the patient's bed...FLUFF EVERYWHERE...They all got yelled at for Lacie's patient gown...it was a purple wevealin' negligee...a giftie from a boyfriend...well, that's gone now. She's wearin' this child sized hospital gown that ties in the back...with pants...it's a cowboy print...UGLEEEEEE!
Nurse Bailey simmered this amazing pot of Scotch Broth...a heckuva improvement on the Campbells in this house.


Bailey bout had a fit at the oatmeal (instant) that was being fixed plus the Lipton teabags.




She pulled this out of her bag to make porridge....oh yummers...Scruffy loved it...he has SUCH A PINHEAD...do all foxie wires have those knobs on the top of their craniums???



She tossed out the skim milk in our fridge and went outside and milked a cow...have NO IDEA where she found that bovine...fresh cream...
She tossed out all the Coke Zero too...Mumsie's havin' a fit....
This mornin' Lacie hacked up this huge um hairball...it was either stuffie guts or a hoooge hunk of Khyra Fluff surrounded by tons of grass Lacie ate from the Vomit Bush. (It's this grass bush we have that we like to EATNPUKE from...) Preeeety impressive. Bailey just shook her head.
Could be a long week.
Barks,
Babystan
Mumsie here. Lacie had started eating again, but is now refusing food. Sounds like another trip to the vets is in our future. She had DYE UR REAR all over her crate today when I was running errands. Needless to say, this required a complete bath including a major beardie wash. Scruffy went over to her crate took one sniff and promptly lifted his leg and peed all over the crate, poop, floor and wall. Frankly, they are all for sale cheap. I'd be more worried, but Lacie is taking water, playing, biting the hairdryer and dishwasher all as usual. She seems fine...just on a hunger strike....thanks for everyone's concern!

Ah Mumsie, Time to ask Nursie Bailey for a wee dram of Scotch to settle your nurses. I'm sure she has some in the big black doctor's bag of hers. Rest assured, she is an excellent nurse and will have everything spit-spot in no time. And I'm sure you will all acquire a taste for cod liver oil first thing in the morning...

Tell Lacie I need to know if she wants the part in Beagadoon as the man-crazed Meg, otherwise it's going to Sophie Brador. She doesn't need to worry any longer about the camera adding ten pounds!

Hope everyone is feeling better!

Your pal,

Petey

Lorenza said...

I hope Lacie ends that strike soon!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Petey said...

Mumsie,

Mommy found this article that may be helpful:
http://dog-care.suite101.com/article.cfm/helping_a_dog_who_wont_eat

The maple syrup sounds like a good idea. So does adding Pedilyte to Lacie's water so she doesn't get dehydrated.

Hope everyone is feeling better soon!

Your pals,

Petey and his Mommy

Poor Lacie ! I wish I could come to give you sweet kisses.... Dyos

Joe Stains said...

good gravy, sounds like quite a mess over there. I am intrigued by the staining going on and would prefer if someone document it. I always enjoy a good stain.

Anyway, Lacie, I hope you are feeling better VERY soon my friend. You have quite a lot of friends taking care of you but we are sending healing vibes.

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Good to have a nurse at hand. Poor little Lacie. We hope you are better soon. BabyRocketDog is going to the vets tomorrow morning cuz she has the SS(soft stool)too. Mom is something of a helicopter parent with us. Oh well. I still love you Lacie AND I am now 10 months old...growing older for you!
XOXOXOXO- Hootie

Noah the Airedale said...

Well Noah went out in sympathy with Lacie last night and threw up a couple of times. Now that is true love.
I hope she is better soon. Poor little thing. Diahreeah (however do you spell that word) isn't much fun.

WE are so pleased Lacie is feeling much better.

Our hooman is sitting here visualising crates, A Dire Rear, Stanley and baths and the chaos that goes with it. She is very pleased that things are calming down in your household.

Khyra The Siberian Husky said...

That post was toooo much 'fun' fur one Sibe to have....

Paws khrossed that Lacie will dekhlare her spring purge khomplete and start eating like a horse again!

Hugz&Khysses,
Khyra

Maggie and Mitch said...

Darn - we were sure hoping to get a peak at that purple wevealin' negligee!
Maybe if mumsie topped your breakie and dindin with ice cream it would look more appetizing to you, Lacie? We hope you feel 100% soon!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Abby said...

Oh My...

Never a dull moment over there...

I hope Lacie feels better soon & starts eating...

Abby xxxooo

Mango said...

I am speechless. Even when you have the sickies you manage to make things insane at your house. Poor Scruff was just trying to freshen up the area a bit I think.

At least things are still shooting out both ends.

Slobbers,
Mango

Eric said...

Boy Oh boy Lacie. What a drama.AB is one stict Matron. She'll have everyone shipshape and Lickety Spit in a blink of a beagle eye. And remember she can sniff out everything.....

Get better soon Lacie. And yes I have a knob on top of my head as my brain is impossibly HUGE.

Wiry wags, Eric


Pee S I've come out in sympathy with you Lacie ...I pooped in my crate yesterday which I never do...haaa!!! Mom is watching me in case we both picked upsomething in Pareee. I'm mad, she didn't even photograph for a stain award.

Martha Basset said...

We are so relieved that Nurse Bailey is with you! Well it is giving me a rest from being taken out walks - I can just sleep!
Rest assured however she is very bossy and will soon have everything ship shape!
We hope Lacie is feeling better and would recommend the broth!
The scene that faced poor mumsie with the DYE UR REAR is enough to make you wonder why you share your life with dogs - so my mum tells me!
Ask Nurse Bailey to equip mumsie with a face mask and some rubber gloves.
love and lots of kisses dear Lacie

Jake of Florida said...

If it's any consolation, Just Harry peed on the living room rug this morning in sympathy -- and we both have that EATNPURG syndrome when it comes to grass (see our videos).

Have you tried the boiled rice and chicken diet for a day or so -- I know it may be hard to persuade the dealer chicken to step into the pot -- but what the heck...

Hugs!! Lots of wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Gus said...

Me too..I got a knob. But muzzer says Springers have a bigger know. They used to call Nigel's his "speed bump!" Not that anything moved very fast in that doggie, from what I can tell.

We are hopin lacie gets better soon. (Please note, we did not say "back to her old self.")

You are in good hands with your new nursie. Can someone tell what school she went to? Her cap is interesting.

Stanley said...

Sweet Lacie Girl!

You've gotta eat, little sistah! Let us know what the vet has to say about all of this. I'm hoping you start feeling like you want some grub soon. Stella's had the big D (dye your rear ah) and throw ups too, but we know what she got into, so it's been rice and bananas for her for the last day (after a little girl-imposed fast).

Sounds like nurse Bailey studied under the strictest of conditions. I hope you're doing well with her there. I also hope your nurses are all recovered from the weekend.

Mumsie, please let us know what's happening as soon as you can. I'm worried about my buddy, Lacie.

Goober love & healing smooches,
Stanley

Martha Basset said...

Lacie, Asta let us know you are poorly and have gone to the hospital. We are thinking about you and hope you get better really soon. Mumsie, I know it is hard but try not to worry too much. I am sure they will get to the bottom of it - pardon the pun!!
lots of love and kisses form
Martha, Bailey and Mum xxx

Peanut said...

Lacie we hope you get better and get out of the hospital. We are sorry you are feeling so bad.

Abby said...

Hi, You Guys...

Oh No...I just came from Asta's Blog...

She said that Lacie is in the hospital...

We are sending our thoughts & prayers & my paws are crossed & I am sending lots of Good Lhasa Vibes...

Please keep us posted...

Abby xxxooo

Sophie Brador said...

Sounds to me like maybe Lacie ate a stuffie. Or maybe she ate one of my boyfriends, who she keeps trying to date! I have just never had some competition in the man department before and I am totally taking advantage of Lacie's down time. I need to talk to mom about a puking bush. That sounds good.

P.S. I'm a wicked poker player.

Ruby Bleu said...

OH NO!!! I just read Asta's bloggy and Lacie is in the hospital. I'm so worried. Please tell Lacie I love her and am thinking good thoughts and crossing paws and everything else I can think of. OMD I'm so worried....

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Jake of Florida said...

We too just heard that Lacie is in the hospital -- send her our love and let us know how she is doing!!!!

Jake and Just Harry

Daisy said...

Lacie, I hope you are all better soon! I am sending my best healing purrs.

Lucia said...

Ciao Lacie love,

I am sending a billion gazillion pounds of healing vibes your way and hope you're feeling better soon.

Extra Tanti Baci, dolce ragazza!
Lucia

PeeEss: Babystan and Scruffy, you're both doing a great job holding down the fort!!!

Moco said...

Sounds like she might be on the mend. Nothing like an old hard line nurse to get things in order. We will still do a circle of healing vibes for Lacie just in case some of that stuffy gets stuck.

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh my, as a Medical Dog, I have been called in to give a second, or third opinion. Nurse Bailey is a compatriot of mine and she called me over here earlier today to take a read and have a look at the patient.

I do hope the Scotch Broth helps, although possibly not, seeing as the Di a Rear is rather effusive (I use lots of medical terms as you can see!).......

If necessary I can fly over and look at the patient in person, although between you and I, I am kinda hoping Lacie gets better naturally, Di A Rear gives me the barf (as we so quaintly say here in Bonnie Scotland).

;0))))

Seriously, we really hope Lacie gets better soonest.

and Hello from Us, sorry we did not introduce ourselves, Marvin was so anxious to prove his medical credentials and help!

lotsahealinglicks, Marvin xxxxx

lots of commiserations on the di a rear and the peeing, Dogs are lovely aren't they?!!!!! Jeannie xxxxxx

the professionals said...

aw lacie please get better soon, you just have to ok! whose going to keep scruffy and stanley in line if you don't get better soon, the place could go to the dogs!!!
here's my biggest healing mojo just for you *X*
woofs and licks doyle ;D

Patience-please said...

we think there might be a Joint Effort Stain Award in the future!!
We sure hope Lacie gets all better immediately.

wags from the whippet

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

We have those knobs on our heads too! Maybe it's a terrier thing! We sure hope Lacie is going to be okay! From time to time, one of us decides not to eat for a few days. After many trips to the v-e-t that were totally unproductive, now no one gets excited unless we go more than 3 or 4 days without eating! We hope maybe Lacie has just put herself on a diet!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Jake of Florida said...

Just checking back to see how our girl Lacie is doing!!!

And oh yes, Just Harry has a knob on his head. I, Jake, do not --
