Follow-up Friday

Welcome to my first Follow-Up Friday post! This is a wrap to my week and leads right into my weekend. Hosted by Heart Like a Dog. Hope you all enjoyed the Thanksgiving Festivities!

Follow-Up Friday Blog Hop

Since this is my first one, there's more to follow-up than the past week. I will need to catch up and go back on a time machine!

Get ready for a blast from the past!

Ms. Ivy recovered well from her shoulder surgery. In fact, she was able to return to the same beach and play without hesitation. She currently is very active, sporting her Sammy Smile with her brother Kodah (also seen in his photo).

Dying Dogs in Advertising - Mercy (Friday the 13th Edition!)

Dying Dog with Sapien examining on a trail.

Pearl Izumi/Cycling posted on their Facebook Wall. 
September 6 near Boulder, CO

"We made a mistake.
You love dogs. We love dogs. And, just like many of you, we love to run with our dogs. It’s fun, healthy and brings tremendous joy to the lives of pets and their owners.
However, the Run Faster advertising that ran in Canadian Running magazine overstepped the bounds of good taste. A lot. And, we offended many of you.
While it was never our intention to make light of this serious subject, this ad crossed the line and used poor judgment. For this, we apologize.
Many of you have suggested that we use this as an opportunity to point out the issue and raise awareness of heat exhaustion while running with your pet. We now hear you. As dog owners and lovers we can only hope that something good might come from our mistake, raise awareness of this potentially serious problem and invite you to share the following information with others:

We have also made a $10,000 donation to the Boulder Valley Humane Society as a sign of our commitment to the well being of the pets we all love.
Again, we sincerely apologize from the bottom of our hearts. We hope to see you out running soon."

Remember when I injured my dew claw? My sapien was brave enough to cut off the hanging nail and I healed up very well. Luckily I never had a limp.

  1. Interesting posts :)

    Welcome to join my blog

  2. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Ruckus - and so glad to hear that your dew claw is healing up nicely (and Ms. Ivy's shoulder!)

  3. Nice posts. You are right how imperative it is to pay attention when out with other dogs. Sometimes your dog needs you to step in and protect them or call a time out, or sometimes you need to step in to protect another dog from your boisterous pup. Mom's had to do this multiple times and be the mediator. If another dog is fearful when we go up to say hi, she steps between to protect the other dog so they don't feel like they have to defend themselves. Or if we are a bit intimidated by another dog, she'll step up for us =) Glad your dewclaw is doing good too and Miss Ivy is ok!

  4. You've been busy. Writing a blog and keeping Ruckus busy must be a full time job. :)

  5. Awesome follow-up and thank you so much for joining the blog hop!

    Poor Ruckus, I'm glad he recovered from his dew claw injury. My sister has a dog that tore his and I know how horrible that can be. It's something I worry about with Sampson and wish I'd had it removed when he was neutered. Delilah's had been removed when we got her.

    Well I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope you have a great weekend!

  6. That was a great first FUF hope to see more to come. So sorry about your broken nail, that isn't fun hope your paw is feeling better. Have a great weekend.

  7. Thanks for following up on those stories! I'm so glad your dewclaw healed up OK and didn't cause any major problems.

  8. Oh my gosh! That happened to Rin too! She wouldn't allow me to touch it but I had to cut it because it kept on causing more pain.

  9. Glad your nail healed up Ruckus and you keep showing those fake playstation
