    Morning! We just caught up on last night’s posts and are still praying for Nora Jo. Nurse Meash is available at a moments notice.

    Spencer, we wish so bad we could get to that panel discussion.

    Spencer: You keep good company. I also wish I could be there.

    Nurse Meash: Thank you for always having your bag packed and ready to go help wherever needed. I’ll send more prayers for Nora Jo and her family too.

    Grrr. That was supposed to say “I don’t remember if I told Staff how much I am loving my new warm, soft wolfie pillowcases. They are to die for.”

    Prayers for little Nora Jo and George. Scary times for their parents.

    Dawson, YEAH for the man in your house booting you to Anchorage for the race! Mom is very excited to meet everyone in person that she considers family. And Rio, keep yeeping at your friend until she says yes! Too bad we couldn’t talk SiberH’s mom into coming too. Mom needs to let the Hobbit know that she and her sister are happy to share a room to open up more space at the Hobbit Hotel. Or move to couches. Now, keep the snow coming, Iditirod gods!

    Masquers: Check your SDD.

    It is another gloomy day in Paradise – very good for reading a Louise Penny book and napping in between chapters.

    We are adding our prayers for Nora Jo and George.

    5:11 pm on January 16th, 2016

    Greetings all. Seems that we keep coming back to our Plunder family in need of prayers. This time, we are asking you to send up good thoughts for Her Royal Highness, Queen Tuppence.

    We awoke this morning to find that Tupper couldn’t stand up or walk without falling over. Thinking that maybe she had simply slept in a wrong position, we worked with her to try to get her loosened up. She seems happy, and perfectly willing to eat her breakfast, and wants to be cuddled, but her legs just won’t hold her up.

    Off to the Emergency Vet we went. After spending the day there, we have no definitive diagnosis, but we do have the vet’s “best guess”. She thinks Tupp may have developed something called a fibrocartyilaginous embolism or FCE- in laymen’s’ terms, a bubble in her spinal column. Said bubble causes weakness or paralysis but absolutely no pain. It is often diagnosed by the toes curling under, which Tupp’s are, and is often preceeded by a sudden yip from the dog with no apparent reason. This happened two nights ago.

    The upside of FCE is that it does not cause any kind of pain. The down side is that there is no cure for a pup of Queen Tupper’s advanced years. The embolism will go one of two ways in the next couple of days. It will start to dissolve and be reabsorbed by her body, or it will progress and rob her of more of her mobility.

    The vet has given us medications to assure that there is no pain, and we are increasing her arthritis meds, hoping that this will encourage the embolism to dissipate.

    There is some good news – upon leaving the vet’s office – we put Tupper down in the grass for “necessary”. She not only was able to take care of herself, but then toddled off to explore the scents of the dog yard. Slowly, and not terribly steady, but she did stay on her feet. We ran back in to tell the vet, who tells us that this is a good sign, that maybe the embolism has reached max, and is actually starting to dissolve.

    We will have to see how she is on Monday, and make some decisions at that point. We know the power of Plunder Prayers – we are asking you to say prayers that Tupper’s royal little spirit will be able to fight off this monster in her spine, and make a full recovery.

    Thanks, family. We feel very blessed to have all of you out there to share this tough time.

    Golinka: our Lady stopped by the Quilt where Luna has her tucked and comforted. Our Lady searched and searched for Tupper’s get-well-now button, but couldn’t find it. She fears it is keeping Gilly’s off switch company. Until Said buttons are found, we will be praying from the kennel.

    Extra special and powerful prayers from Teddy for his great royal friend Ms Tuppence and for that nasty bubble to dissolve, dissolve, dissolve itself away prontito. To

    Rio: We are sure we can find three first class seats —one for Friend, Beau and you—north to Alaska. Mother can be stored in the overhead compartment. We are sure she won’t mind.

    7:00 pm on January 16th, 2016

    Thanks all for the good thoughts and supports. Queen Tupper would like you to know that she was able to toddle over to the dinner table tonight to beg for…..ummmm, look adorable and hope for pizza bones.

  51. Thieves!
    8:53 pm on January 16th, 2016

    Scout: Is Zoe behaving herself? We hope she is getting up a proper amount of antics.

    Friend: We still argue that smashing your thumb in a ladder was poor decision making on your part.

  52. Lefty's Lady
    8:54 pm on January 16th, 2016

  55. Scout
    9:04 pm on January 16th, 2016

    Well, I am working hard here, taking care of everyone. My Mom seems to be doing fine. She does not need her cane around the house anymore. She does take it with her when she goes outside in the slush. When she gets home, I keep her company while she ices that knee. I help by walking back and forth over her stomach. Zoe comes to visit me, me, me several times a day. I like it best when she leaves the big, black dog at her place! She and the big black dog take long walks everyday. There are several people along the way who come out from their houses to visit with them!

  56. Lefty's Lady
    9:05 pm on January 16th, 2016

    Dawson: Get the pliers. We’ll distract Friend so you can rid her of that thumb nail.

    Friend: Find a stick you’d like to bite.

  57. Barb, Maggie and Lucy

    9:16 pm on January 16th, 2016

    Bite!…Any of youse with pliers come near my friend and her thumb you will see some biting. Even snaggle-tooth teeth can bite out loud!…grumble!

  59. Thieves!
    9:34 pm on January 16th, 2016

    Rio: Okay, so Friend doesn’t want to bite a stick. Get the whiskey.

  60. Rio - The Evil Pug
    9:40 pm on January 16th, 2016

    Nail!…The Nail will come off when the Nail is ready to come off…gasp!wheeze!yeeep!

  61. Thieves!
    9:50 pm on January 16th, 2016

    Dawson: Stand down with the pliers! We have recently come under the impression that Rio doesn’t want Friend’s nail to be pulled. Call it a hunch.

  62. Rio - The Evil Pug
    9:54 pm on January 16th, 2016

    Whew!…Nail, you can come out from hiding…snort!….But please put a bandage on. You are grossing me out!…puke!gag!

  63. dawson
    9:58 pm on January 16th, 2016

    Thieves: Just as well, I’m not as good with a pair of pliers as I pretend to be.

    Hoping for cold weather in Alaska but meanwhile, I’m off to the warm bedroom thinking of LizF and Ruby enjoying summertime in Oz.

  64. Linda
    9:58 pm on January 16th, 2016

    Prayers for Nora Jo, Tuppence, and anyone else I’ve forgotten!

  66. Thieves!
    10:37 pm on January 16th, 2016

    10:52 pm on January 16th, 2016

    Queen Tuppence we cats are all praying for you. Staff and the Mr. are on the job too. I am glad to hear that you wanted bones tonight. I am sure that means good things. “They” had that same dinner but we didn’t get any. Not that I wanted it you understand

    Hugs to you from Alice

    Rio. ISH! Stop with the thumbnail pictures or I will send you a picture of Mr.Staff’s toenail. YUCK!

    Oh dear…I have not been reading much here lately due to main computer gone caplooie and laptop trying to catch up with months of updates. So tonight I catch up a tiny bit and am sending prayers galore to Royal Tuppence for complete recovery. The Schnauzers, Murphy and Zoe send their best prayers, too. And yes, Plunderer Prayers are so special.

    11:34 pm on January 16th, 2016

    DWson, I can’t believe I’m up this late. Just checked out the Sabres score. A sweet young man moved into his new apartment and he had a party for all the residents and also his friends. I have trouble staying up this late and will pay for it tomorrow but it was worth it meeting many of my neighbors.

  73. Thieves!
    12:18 am on January 17th, 2016

    Linda: we posted our last comment before OT started. We hope you know our ‘heh’ was not a jab at your team.
