Phoebe + Zoey were right yesterday - the TV people won't be coming to my neighborhood on Sunday, which means I won't be coming to your living rooms. I bet that Britney chick found out about our Plans and was afraid I'd show up and ruin her big performance or whatever. I mean, seriously. Who'd watch her if I was there?


As bummed as I am about that, I'm superworried about Dutch. I hate to keep asking for juju, but I think we need some.

Like, now.

The weird scratching is still totally gone and that's cool, but last night he started having problems with his pee. Sometimes he'd try to pee, but the pee wouldn't come. I guess this can be a ridiculously big deal if you're a Dalmatian - something about stones getting stuck?

Except for the pee thing, Dutch seems OK so my human took some of his pee to the vet this morning. We're waiting on the test results and hoping for infection and not stone stuff.

You'll know more when I do. Until then, please send brother Dutchie some serious good juju!!

Oh no Dutch! I'm sending some juju your way! A while ago Beulah kept having to go out and try to pee--we thought it was a bladder infection but it turned out that she had a stomach upset and she ended up peeing (or trying) instead of the other thing since the gas made it too uncomfortable. Hopefully its something as small as eating a bad roadmuffin and getting an upset tummy.

Please feel better Brother Dutch. We hate to think of you feeling uncomfortable but not being able to pee... it's kinda of what being a dog is about. All good juju is being sent your way.
Luv, Zoey & Phoebe

Oh Dutch...we are definately sending good JuJu vibes. Our auntie Abbey (a corgi) has stones, is on special diet all the time...hope its something minor. Could it be a side effect of the drug?

Oh Puglet,

That can be bad news! Lucky the Pug has stones, and it has been so difficult to treat. He's on a special diet and the poor thing cries so much when he can't pee. It's awful. He's had surgery once and we are monitoring him very carefully because the problem came back about 3 years later. Not good. So, I really hope that Dutch does not have stones and if he does that they are NOT of calcium oxalate variety but ones he can dissolve. Good Luck and lots of good juju from the Boston Terrier and Pug in Portland, Oregon.

Oh no! Poor Dutch! Maybe the new meds are drying him out!

I'm sorry we won't get to see you on GMA. That sucks!

Nothing but good juju coming your way. Not to worry Pug. Everything will be alright. Can you feel it??

Lola said...

Totally hoping it's an infection and not stones. I have crystals in my pee and it hurts too. I have to eat a special food to keep them from coming back. All our good jujus to the Dutchman today.

Hi Puglet,
Ok here comes... good JUJU from the San Antonio Pugs.

Our cat Lucy had stones removed a few months ago, our goofy mom has them in a little bottle on her desk.

Emmitt had a pee problem a few months ago, something about crystals in his pee and an infection. Medicine and some goop in a tube fixed him up without surgery, but the goop gave him a sore stomach. Always something.

Ok, here is more JUJU..for brother Dutch.
Ellie, Emmitt and Eli from Texas

Dude, Britney is totally scared of your mad pug skillz!

Sucks you won't be in my living room :(

Hope Dutchman gets better soon - pee needs to come out! I've had those crystal things and they are a huge pain the you-know-what.

Oh Puglet,

You're probably right, that Britney chick probably did find out about your plans and changed the location. I'm sure your awesome talent freaked her out. She probably saw your kickin' Cabbage Patch. My mom said she was only going to record the TV thing to watch you. We are bummed.
We are even more bummed to hear Dutch is not his best Dalmatian self. He is such a sweet guy and great brother to you. From now until the moment we hear from you, we're sending big time serious JuJu for our spotted friend Dutch.
Love ya'

Sending lots of good juju from Vancouver, BC! It's sunny here so I think that'll help. I wanted to send you some of my kibbles and tuna too but mom said it wouldn't travel well. I hope this juju stuff is enough!

Your feline friend,

Puglet I'm sure, that BS was afraid that she'll have like zero attention when you'll be around!!! And she was right. Anyway in Poland we say "co siÄ™ odwlecze to nie uciecze". Google translated it like "What is delayed is not lost" which means you'll be a tv star one day.
But what is more important we send huge JUJU to Dutch!!! we have some pug friends that had pee problems and stones, and a proper food like anty struvite diet should help, but I hope that it's nothing serious, and Datch will be fine soon :) big hugs for Dutch !!!

Wow, that Brittany person must have be real scared you'd upstage her. What's a little rain going to hurt?
Sending good JUJU Dutch's way. Poor guy just can't catch a break, can he.

Dutch...I know that Puglet seems to get all the attention...but this isn't the way to get it, dude! Try going poodle or eating cow pies or something...maybe that will work? Hope you feel better VERY soon!

Kellee the Caffeinated said...

Oh no!!! Poor Dutch! I hope it's not stones!!! I had kidney stones buddy and let me tell you.... it's horrible!!!!

Oskar said...

Pawerful prayers for Dutch! I hope he feels better soon.

Good juju for ju and Dutch!

I had bladder crystals a long time ago. It totally sucked! So the vet inserted a tube in my boy parts and fixed it. After that I was on a strict diet: less protein, more veggies and some fish. Seems to be working! Feel better soon, Dutch!

Miley said...


Boka here, go to Dr Kongo she is fab!! She will take great care of you. She fixed me right up when I had stones.

Don't worry about that TV thing, Puglet, I hear the cameras put weight on you.

Good juju going out to Dutch from all of us here in Northern Nevada. I hope it gets to you as the white stuff is falling from the sky.....again.

citydog said...

All good Vermont juju your way, Dutch.

Noodle said...
