Blog Break...

If I haven't visited you lately (like in the past 20 days)...

it's because my little girl has been sick...VERY sick.

Oreo is our 7 year old Miniature Pomeranian.


She likes to be cuddled tight in a towel, rocked and kissed until she falls asleep.

Little girls just need that kind of stuff and it makes it hard for me as "Mommy" to visit with each one of you while cuddling, rocking and kissing...(I'm sure you get the picture)

After many trips to the Vet's office, x-rays, blood work, antibiotics, sleepless nights and delirious days

(& about $350.00 later)...

My Little Oreo has a severe case of

Kennel Cough.

**Note that I say she's "mine" when she's sick. On all other occasions, she's Daddy's little princess! hmpf!

It's terrible to hear her cough continuously and see her in so much pain, but this nasty virus needs to run it's course.

Hopefully soon, this shall pass and all will be back to "normal" in the LeJeune household.


ooops...MY little princess is calling me.

I gotta go cuddle...and rock...and kiss her.

So if I haven't visited you or if I haven't returned any of your fabulous emails in a timely manner, it's because

I am "Nurse Mommy" right now and I hope to be back in the land of the living...


I miss all of you~

Years ago my Pepper got Kennel cough. I couldn't sleep. It sounded like she was taking her last breath. I totally understand. You should get the vaccine against kennel cough. I get it now every year for Bentley.

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

Oh Jodie, bless your fur-babies heart!
And yours too, for being such a good mama!

Call me, I have a horror story to tell you about how they mistreated my fur baby Winnie at the boarders while we were in Portland.

Love to you, sweet friend!

trash talk said...

I hate that little miss is sick. It breaks my heart when our "babies" get ill 'cause they can't tell us where they hurt the most. You just keep doing what you're doing and when she's all better, she can tell us all about it.
Keeping you close to my heart.

I love little Oreo. She is adorable. I am especially attached because we once has a darling Oreo! Our first child...haha! (dog-child, that it!

Karen said...

Whew! I am so relieved! Never thought I'd be glad to say "I'm glad it's kennel cough" but it's better then the alternative was. Go give that first vet a piece of your mind for scaring the bejeepers out of us!
Big hugs-accompanied by a bigger sigh of relief.
;) Karen

Jennie said...

Poor sweet Oreo! My babies have each had it during different times of their lives; it used to break my heart to see how hard their little body would shake when coughing. Hang in there and keep her bundled up.

Best wishes and high hopes to you and little Oreo.

Peke prayers, high hopes and best wishes,

Jennie and the Pretty Pekingese

Oh she's too sweet. Our pomeranian is going on 14 next November. She's been pretty healthy other that a gall stone that gives her a tummy ache occasionally. They said it would be difficult to operate so she has just had to adjust. Poor babies, it terrible when they don't feel well.

Lorraine said...

She is such a beauty, and deserves all the cuddles in the world, and I will pray that tomorrow she is so much better, she just gets up and go play

Linda Robinson said...

She is so cute... I just hate it when animals get sick.. I aways feel so bad for them.. they can't tell you how they are feeling..
well I hope she gets better soon.

Hope the rest of your weekend goes well! Hugs, Linda

kana said...


I hope OREO is much better after all of your loving and nursing! My little Juju had her female surgery last Thur and has been up for some extra cuddles and loving too!

Karen Valentine said...

Hello my friend! I am so sorry to hear your sweet baby is sick. I totally understand the need to cuddle her and make her feel better. They really are our children aren't they?
Other than that I hope you are well. I miss chatting with you and hope we can remedy that soon.
