Sunday Pupdates

First of all, paws down to our internet connection which started giving trouble again before we could even catch up. Right now it mostly works from 7 am to 7 pm, approximately. That is not when there are humans available to help with  blogging and visiting, unfortunately. Someone's coming tomorrow.  If that doesn't work out we might have to switch to Verizon, which we don't really want to do, or so I'm told. But we might. So there's that.

Next, the good news. My meds came from Canada! Just as promised and at a pawfectly reasonable price. Not only am I being helped by this, as well as lots of other Shar Pei, but also our friend CoCo is now going to get her meds from Canada, too. She was sick a while back. And then she got better. But she needs very expensive medications to keep her well and healthy. Much more expensive than mine, even at the new prices. So, when we told her Mom about the Canada option she looked into it and can get CoCo's medications at a much more manageable price, leaving more green papers for the humans to have things like groceries and such. I mean, they've got to keep up their strength to take proper care of us, right? In case anydoggy's interested, we got ours from Pharmacy Rx World. There are lots of others, but now that we got our stuff, just as promised, we thought we should share that link.

What with all these connection problems we haven't posted much about our day to day doings lately. Well, there haven't been so many of those anyway once we thought about it. It was a pretty quiet winter from our point of view. Now it's almost Spring, so maybe things will get more exciting. One thing we did do over the winter was watch Franklin's nose get crusty. I thought you might enjoy some photos of old crusty so there they are:

Franklin with original nose
Together with the red eyes, he's turning out to be a real looker
It seems to be something called nasodigital hyperkeratosis and does not appear to have a cure. I must say it doesn't seem to bother him or interfere with his self esteem any, though. 

My second Gotcha Day is in  just a couple of weeks. I'm making gift lists for the humans and I hope they're planning something nice. I also hope that our connection is more reliable then than it is now.

Once again, we apologize for our spotty visiting lately. Sometimes we lose our connection right in the middle of our rounds, or sometime before we even get started, but I have been assured that we will get this fixed eventually, for sure.


  1. We're so glad to hear from you and know that you are well. It's really good that you can get your meds from Canada with reasonable price too.
    Hope Franklin's nose problem isn't a big deal and won't hurt him.
    Internet problems seem to be a universal problem to many people too. Hope it's fixed as soon as possible.

  2. It's always good to get your news! We're so glad you got your meds, Lola! Sorry about Frankln's crusty nose. We found this stuff which is supposed to help:

    Hoping you can get that connection all smooth again son!


  3. Franklin is still a most handsome fellow. Mommy put aloe (straight from the plant) on Bobo's nosey when it got crusty like that and -voila - all gone.

    Your pal, Pip

    P.S.: Can't wait for your Gotcha Day!

  6. Nice to see you both. You know, as long as Franklin's nose doesn't hurt then it is fine by me and I think the ladies will still like him just fine. I am glad you got your medicines. It was kind of a long winter, wasn't it?


  7. Hi there, good to hear from you. Glad you got the meds too. Hope you have a good Spring!
    Toodle pip!

  8. That is such super news about your meds.. you know... some of the bestest thingys ever... come from CANADA..(Ruby and Penny).
    I think Franklin looks GRRRRREAT. Quite Masculin if you ask me.
    I am soooooo glad that you are still working on gettin back to us... we all miss you something terrible.

  9. Okey Dokey... I just came back to let you know that I have sent a Peemail to JD & Max... and a Bcc to You... so that you can get hooked up Re: the payment questions. You can check your PeeMail for what I said. You two are the bestest.

  10. I'm so glad you can get your meds at a reasonable price.
    Franklin is still awesome.

  11. Ohh Lola it is good to see yu again, how awesome yu can get your meds at a better rpice I am gonna get my Mom to look at dat site and see if it would be good for mine too.
    I hopes Franklins nose settles down fer him real soon. We will all be here waitin when your pooter probs are fixed so hopefully yu will be back again really soon.

  12. What a coincidence, Lola! We were thinking of u today and wondering if u were having net problems again..we hadn't heard from u for so long..
    So nice to know the GOOD NEWS. We are very glad the meds have come and that many of our friends can get them too if they need to.
    Have u tried putting some moisturiser on Franklin's nose? Aloe vera sounds like a good idea. We don't know if the crusts will go but we are sure it won't crack and bleed or become painful or something.
    He looks as handsome and adorable as ever..crusty nose or otherwise:)
    Buddy, Ginger n Shadow

    pee ess: We wish u a VERY VERY Happy Gotcha Day in advance, just in case the net misbehaves!
    We love u and are very glad we know u:)

  13. Such wonderful news to hear about the meds from Canada. We hope you can continue to get them and feel better. We haven never heard of that nose crustiness, but we wonder if some sort of moisturizing cream would help.

    Jed & Abby

  23. Nice of you to share the link for other doggies who might need cheaper alternatives, that's why we love you so much, Lola. Franklin's crusty nose is cute, and I guess what's doesn't hurt him, then just leave it be. Hope your internet line behave nicely soon and have a wonderful spring.

    Licks, hero

    PeeS: Paws crossed for a speedy internet connection for your Gotcha Day!!!

  26. Seems Canada is the place to go for meds both canine and human!
    Maybe the Spring weather will make a difference with Franklin's nose!

  27. Thanks for the update, thats good if you can get your meds cheeper, we all have to save money when we can.
    Poor Franklin's nose, are you sure he's not been rubbing it on the carpet!(only joking)
    Have a good week

    Hugs Madi and Mom

  29. You're handsome no matter what's on your nose!

  30. Hi Lola, We're glad you were able to get your meds from the nice Canadian folks. They send us our meds, too.

    One of Mom's other dogs, Pylon, got that nasty crusty nose thing too. It bothered Mom more than it did Py.

    We hope you get to have a party for your big day.
    Morgan, Tsar and the Porties

  31. Lola - Good to see you and Franklin! Excellent news about your meds. Hope that helps you and lots of other pups, too. We don't think like crusty nose bothers guys too much!

    Hope you get lots of nice pressies and treats for your Gotcha Day!
