Do they get cuter than this?! I think not! Just another day at the "booty-shop". 🎀
Once upon a time, there was a dog that got a Turkey leg for dinner... (start of all great bedtime stories for dogs)
This post is pretty long, but the jist is BEWARE of the Smart Outlets...they emit a high sound frequency that can be too much for your pup to handle. 😉👍
PSA: We adopted our dog, Rowdy, from the shelter 5 years ago. He was already an adult dog, so we estimate he is about 11 or 12 years old at this point. I love this dog. He is the sweetest soul and my BFF. For the past week or so he hasn’t been acting like himself. He licked a raw spot on his foot. He was panting constantly. He was pacing. Sunday morning, the pacing and panting got so bad, and I was REALLY nervous that there was something seriously wrong with him. For 45 minutes, he panted like crazy and constantly paced back and forth. He was keeping his tail tucked down all the time. His ears were pinned back. He would not settle down and he wouldn’t eat. We tried everything. I ended up giving him a trazadone that he takes sometimes when he goes to the groomer. It seemed to take a little bit of the edge off, but not much. He still wouldn’t eat and still wouldn’t settle. I took off work on Monday so I could take him to the vet. We did bloodwork and x-rays. Knowing he is a senior dog, I was trying to prepare myself for the worst case scenario. I was glad to see his bloodwork was great except for some elevated liver enzymes. The x-rays showed he was a little backed up but no major issues. He got an anti-nausea injection and some Gabapentin to help with some tenderness in his back and to hopefully help keep him calm. When we got home, he was ok for a little bit, but eventually started pacing and panting again. We walked around the neighborhood for a long time and he used the bathroom a lot. He seemed pretty happy about that and was in good spirits until we got home and he refused to come back in the house. Every time I took him out that evening, he would hunker down like he didn’t want to come back in the house. When my vet called and I gave her the update, she suggested there may be some new electronic device in the house that was emitting a high frequency noise that is hurting his ears. We had just put new smart outlets in the house about a week ago. His pacing and panting were worse when the lamps were on, so I unplugged all the smart outlets. He stopped panting, stopped pacing, and ate his food. His tail was even up and wagging again. When I plugged the smart outlets all back in and asked Alexa to turn on the lamps, he immediately started panting and pacing again. My husband used an app to test the frequency of the smart outlets. It was off the charts. We've left the outlets unplugged for two days and have confirmed that it is definitely the smart outlets that are causing his stress and discomfort. He's back to being a totally normal dog now. I really thought this was the end for Rowdy based on the way he was acting. I am so thankful for Dr. Newell at BoonesCreek AnimalHospital for figuring out this simple solution. If your pets are exhibiting similar symptoms, you may want to consider checking your electronics first. I cannot express how relieved I am that he is ok now. 😭♥️🐶
Ok, we're going to try doing MATCHING MONDAYS! We'll share posts from local organizations and shelters with pups that need a little extra exposure! Here's our starter... he's gorgeous, been at the shelter a long time, and no doubt will be the BFF of their adopter. Come on, look at that SMILE ... anyone need a new friend? Hint hint! Please share, let's find this guy a buddy!

IMPORTANT INFO TO KNOW!
Happy Halloween All! 🎃
Don't see many CKC in rescue...I know we have someone who would love to add this beauty to their family!! Contact Portland Dachshund Rescue, Inc. 👍
Please welcome this very cute King Charles Cavalier Spaniel named Marley to the rescue! When a friend in rescue asked for our help, we had so say yes when we saw this guy’s face. This guy is about 25 pounds, perpetually happy and loves his treats as much as a dachshund! This boy is around 5 years old and gets along with everyone. He will be up for adoption after he gets vaccines, bloodwork and a basic dental cleaning. Tell your spaniel loving friends and families as we think this guy would be great with kids! Check out stories for a cute picture of him getting a treat with all his doxie friends! Thank you to Teresa for saying “yes” to fostering a non-doxie.
🎵 There once was a puppy from Portland,
Who wanted to look scary for Halloween.
After a wash, dry, cut and trim,
The groomers just stood and looked a him.
What can we do? We have to stop trying,
This puppy is just tooo Dog Gone Clean! 🎵
Too beautiful to not share. ❤️
They saw you watching over them
As they finally closed their eyes
They smelt your scent as they breathed
In and out for the last time
They heard the way your voice broke
As you told them they were loved
They felt you as you held them
With your gentle, farewell touch
And now they watch each morning
As you pass their empty bed
They watch you lose composure
And they see the tears you shed
They hear you bear the silence
Of the footsteps that are gone
That walk across your heart each day
Like echoes of a song
They feel the pang of emptiness
You get when you’re alone
In moments when you realise
That they’re never coming home
But in their darkest moment
You were there to hold them tight
And they just want the same for you
So you can feel alright
So they’re sewing you a rainbow,
Weaving ribbons through the sky
So they can let you know
That life is good beyond goodbye
So next time it is raining
And the sun appears as well
Just feel and look and listen
To what they are trying to tell
They’re telling you it’s spring there
With its showers and its sun
Where there are endless fields for them
To play and stretch and run
They’re telling you they sleep upon
The biggest, softest beds
That they have stitched from all the clouds
That float above your head
They’re telling you they’re not alone
For there are many others
And they’ve been reunited
With their parents, sisters, brothers
They’re showing you their rainbow
So you know they won’t forget you
And to tell you they will always be
So happy that they met you
And they’re telling you they love you
And though they’ll be dearly missed,
Not to worry, ‘cause it’s beautiful
Beyond the rainbow bridge
Sending love and compassion to anyone who is missing a beloved pet today - and every day.

Almost spooky day! 🕸 🕷
Anyone feel like becoming an angel? Portland Dachshund Rescue, Inc. Needs foster homes. This is a wonderful organization, if you can, DO, you won't regret it!
We need fosters: The crazy, annoy your coworkers because you show them pictures of your dog every day when most people share pictures of their kids type. On Friday nights you tell your friends you have a cold, but really you just want to cuddle your dogs on the couch. You think dog hair is just extra insulation for the cold Portland weather and your dog has more winter coats than you do. Although you just ate a freezer pizza, your dog is eating the freshest of ingredients so he stays healthy and regular. You swear your dog understands everything you say and dislikes Uche from Love is Blind as much as you do.
You. You’re our kind of people. We have several surrender requests waiting to come to the rescue. Ideally we are looking for people in home settings with fenced yards that don’t have cats or young kids to foster. All the dogs are adorable but need patient understanding homes to help ease them through their transitions (picture of alumni Maisie and Evie here for attention):
The most popular Halloween costume this year..."The Clean Doggie".
Time to start getting into the "spirit" of it!
Do I look spooky? I feel spooky. 👻
How about adding a new pup to your family? This cutie is looking for one. Just love his smile!
All cleaned up and ready FOR A WALK!
When we see a client every other week for many many years, it is as though we lose one if our own. We will miss you dearly our darling Fatti Patti. Rest in peace, sweetheart. ❤️ 😢
"Training " is a matter of perspective. 😉
It' that time of year,
When things start looking kinda spooky.
Glad I'm all CLEAN,
So no body thinks I'm looking kinda coooky! 🎃 🕸 🕷
Treats only... no tricks please!🎃🕷
🎵 Don't be scared,
It's just me...
You probably didn't recognize me,
Now that I'm all CLEAN! 🎵
Fell a little behind on last week's gorgeous puppy posts! Here's a super cute picture dump to get you over hump day!
Many of us can appreciate this!
Autumn winds begin to blow.
Colored leaves fall fast and slow.
Whirling and twirling all around,
'Til at last they touch the ground.
Sometimes, when you ask a pup to smile, you get this. ☺️
