Thanks from me, Lola

I want to thank everyone who came by, sent their well wishes and even sent new furiends to visit. It really lifts a girl's spirits to have so many supportive friends. I'm feeling quite well on the Rimadyl now. The only bad thing is that I do still need it to feel well and will probably have to do a second round of it and then go back to the Vet. But now I can go up and downstairs again, and get up on the furniture and even run around a bit, so I'm not complaining.

I was feeling like this. 

But now I feel more like this. Better, right? 
 Our spirits were really lifted today when we learned that Hero is on the mend and healing at last. There could be no better news. Our tails are wagging right off our butts and not just the doggies. The humans are that happy, too. Hero may be a boy dog, but I still think of him as one of my BFF's. Keep on feeling better and better, dear friend. You're going to need all your strength for dealing with your baby sister when she arrives.

 I guess I should say thanks to Franklin for stepping up here on the blog and also for allowing me to get rest and not bothering me too much when I was feeling especially bad. There'll be a little something extra in his doggy dish tonight. I'm also considering add him to my by-line on post and comments. What do you think? Is he ready? He'll have been with us for six months in a few days. It's beginning to seem quite permanent.


  1. So good to read that you are feeling better, Lola. You sure look perkier in that second photo than the first. We will keep our paws crossed that the Rimadyl does the trick for you. Wonderful news about Hero too - we are keeping him in our thoughts too.

    Franklin did a great job of keeping us up to date - great plan you have there for thanking him.

  2. Oh Lola, I is so full of da happies dat you is feelin betters. I was kinda nervous afters what Hero had been through. I hopes da Rimadyl keeps working for you and we will still keep you in our thoughts.
    I thinks Franklin did a superb job handling da blog duties. I say add him.


  3. Oh, Lola, Lola! This just made me wiggle all over! I am so very much glad you're feeling betters. I think your moms should give you a theme pawty just for that! Yippee!

    And yes, I s'pose it might be time to go ahead and gives Franklin his own credits on your bloggie. Of course, you know it'll still be "Lola's bloggie" in my mind. But you don't have to tell him that.

    Brindle kisses and snuggles!


  4. Lola!!!

    Girlfuriend, I am doin' da boxer wiggle butt dance cuz I am so happy dat you is feelin' better! BUT I am still gonna send puppy prayers to you...'kay?
    Franklin did a great job keepin' us updated on how you was feelin' so I thinks you should add him too :)

    Woofs and Licks,

  5. Lola, we're so glad to hear you're feeling better! Glad to know Hero is doing better too.
    We'll keep both of you in our thoughts.
    Franklin sure did a great job keeping us updated.

  6. YES!!! Please add Franklin. That boy really did a cool drool job in your absense. He does deserve the by-line add on.
    I can not even believe how sad you did look and how much better you look in the second pic.. WHEW
    That is wonderful news about Hero also!!!

  7. Dear Lola, we are so glad to hear that you're feeling better and we are happy that Hero is on the mend too.
    Keep your good appetite and get a super duper speedy recovery!
    Franklin indeed did a fantastic job and we are so pleased that you have such a sweet brother.

  8. Lola, I am so happy to hear that you are feeling better. I was so worried! Also, very good news about Hero. Franklin was very good about keeping us all up-to-date during your illness. What a nice brother!

  9. We're also most happy to read you are feeling better. Hope you're soon completely cured and back to your usual feisty self. We agree Franklin has earned a place as a junior partner on your blog. You won't have to change the name or anything, just maybe the subtitle. How much trouble can it be for your mom to add [in littler print] "by us, Lola and Frankin, two Chinese Shar Peis"? It will be restful to have a back-up, for those days a girl just doesn't feel like writing. We are also most happy to read the hopeful news from Hero. We'll keep our paws crossed for both of you.

  10. Such delightful news to hear that you're feeling much better now, Lola. My hoomans and I were really worried for you as we understand how your family would have felt and how awful to be sick with FSF. You are my bestest BFF for sure, Lola... and Franklin really showed us what a great brother he is, with a deserving space of his own. It's going to be hectic here with the arrival of a new family member... but rest assure we miss everyfurry the same and keep us updated on your recovery when possible. Take care my furiend and will be thinking of you always.

    Licks, hero

  11. Our tails are wagging like crazy that you're feeling better! We've been worried about you, Lola!

    I say that Franklin did a wonderful job while you were resting and he definitely earned a by line!


  12. Lola!! We are so happy to hear that you are feeling much better.. we look forward to the time when you have completely well..

  14. We have been MIA for a while 'cause our momma has an internet gift shop and this Christmas was a banner year for her! But, things are slowing down and we are so sorry to read that you are not feeling well. We are sending many and many tender thoughts and we'll even make those cats that live with us do some purrs for you.

  15. YAY fur Lola!!!! We are doing the Snoopy Happy Dance for you and for Hero!!!!!

  16. Hey Lola!
    Wow, I'm sooo glad you're feeling better. Gotta believe in the power of the paw and all of our healing vibes and thoughts. I hope you just keep getting better and better. Cute pix of you.

  17. I have been so busy that I haven't been sitting at the computer as much as I'd like so that means that I had no idea Lola wasn't feeling well! I am so glad that she is on the mend and is taking her medicine as directed! I never heard of a swollen hock syndrome either and I am glad the disease was stopped before it got any more serious!

  18. Hi Lola
    SO pleased to hear that you're feeling a bit better now.
    Toodle pip!

  19. Oh, Lola! I have been away and am just catching up on your bloggie. I am so very happy that you are starting to feel better. I'm glad Franklin is taking good care of you!

    Sending pawsitive vibes and snuggles,

  21. Lola, we are just delighted that you are feeling better! And very happy to hear about Hero too!

    As for Franklin, he was very concerned when you were not well and very good about keeping us posted, so perhaps he should play a greater role?

  23. You are so glad to hear that things are picking up for you. We will keep paws crossed things keep improving!

  27. Well, that made my day! I am so happy you are feeling better!

  28. Sooo glad to hear you are feeling better!

  29. Dear Dear Lola,
    we are so so glad u are feeling better.U definitely look good in your picture.
    We are sending heaps of wags n licks n love n hugs from all of us here. We will certainly keep you in our prayers n zen-wishes everyday so u get absolutely fit and fine soon.
    Franklin, we are really very very sorry we missed your post about Lola's sickies.
    we haven't been able to visit any of our friends much these last few days. With Daddy being away, mummy has been trying hard to juggle everything alone. And we tried to just keep posting at least, so you all know what we have been up to.
    Thank Dog, Lola is feeling better.
    And did very well, managing her bloggie for her.
    We definitely will like to read your thoughts time and again, even after Lola resumes blogging.
    Ginger, Buddy n Shadow

  30. Hi Lola and Franklin,
    #1 Franklin does deserve his By-line for sure.....
    #2 and it is not that your brother is more important then you sweet girl, not at all, so happy you are feeling better!!!!!!!!!! You keep taking your meds like a good girl!! We here are praying for you and sending healing vibs>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.
    Thank-you so so so much for your visit and the good wishes for me!! I am feeling better too!! Not so sore!! the passing out thing is always going to be with me, but it only happens once in a while!!
    Love you girl and Franklin too, Bambi & Fern

  31. I'm so glad youre feeling better! I was worried about you. I'm really sorry I haven't been around much lately but I don't think it will get better very soon. I am curious about your friends you mentioned had the same kind of treatment as my grandma. We learned today that only about 50% of people succeed with this type of transplant and the aggressive Leukemia she has. I would love to know about others. Thanks so much for your friendship and concern for my grandma. It means a lot!

  32. Hi Lola,
    we came by to see how u are doing. Since there isn't any new NewS, we are taking it for granted that all is well and u are getting better.
    Do keep warm and try n eat well. We want to see u spring back to pawfect health ASAP.
    love n wags, Gin, Bud, Shadow n Mummy too

  33. Lola - we have missed reading about you and Franklin! Sorry to read that you were under the weather, but hope you are feeling better now! Franklin seems totally up to the task of filling in for you! BUT we wanna hear from you soon, too! BTW, we posted a pic just for you on our blog today. (Um, you'll have to scroll through some other pics to get to it, but you'll know it when you see it!)
