Follow-Up/FitDog Friday

We are joining Jodi at Heart Like A Dog for Follow-Up Friday.
Welcome to this week’s edition of Follow-Up Friday, the blog hop that lets you wrap up your week and leads you right into the weekend.
Today’s co-hostess is Donna from Donna and the Dogs. Hop on over and see what Donna and her three dogs are up to.

“Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.”

Thank you so much Amy and everyone else who leaves such inspiring messages on my Norman posts. Your inside on death and grieving is so uplifting and I cherish all the messages. 

Donna and the Dogs says:

And I think having the necklace engraved was a wonderful idea. It’s nice that you have found all these ways to honor and remember him.

I have another way I am remembering Norman so check back tomorrow for Nothing But Norman.

Oh, there is something good there in the brush – can even see those tails a-waggin’.

Must of been a really good smell, they didn’t flush anything out so my guess is rabbit or deer turds. Yes their tails are wagging all the time. They just love to hunt!

They probably have tons of toys they could play with too, and they end up choosing that to chew on!

Yes your so right, they have all kinds of toys. I guess I shouldn’t complain they don’t eat the tootsie rolls so this might be better?

Oh My. God! I can’t believe you put a picture of your dog with a turd coming out up on the blog. I laughed so damn hard. Thanks for the chuckle!

LOL, yes yes I put a picture of a pooping dog up. I love poop and love taking pictures of pooping dogs. Why not share the joy, hey? Got people’s attention and hopefully they will scoop their poop.


Sara is beautiful. I wonder if she has PRA? I hope she finds a wonderful home, but at $200 for a senior dog with vision issues, I fear she may linger on foster care for the rest of her days

I agree to Linda, the adoption is kinda high for a senior dog but I do understand their reasoning’s, they need all the money and resources they can get to keep adopting out pets, maybe they will lower in if no bites and she can find a good home.

Nellie it's ok Pruven to the rescue, you don't need to be sad anymore.

I have to say, I am really impressed! That stuff would be mighty handy!

I always would swear by a product called Equalizer sold at vet clinics as I would always have a bottle of that on hand and it would clean up anything. But I have to say this Pruven is giving it a run for it’s money. So far it has cleaned up everything I needed it to.


it needs no words it says so much. and it’s just wonderful

You are so right easy. No words needed. I just love the American Flag and Glory was named after it along with after Lady Gaga’s song Edge Of Glory. This was taken on my last photo shoot with Norman. I saw the flag and wondered if I would be able to get a picture of Glory with it being it was so high up in the air. I think I did a fine job getting a photo of both Glory’s. 

Nellie got a bird.

Happy 3rd 29th birthday!!! I saw that you went pheasant hunting on the face-place. Glad you got your allotment. Will you eat the pheasant? I don’t think we have ever had that here.
Yes Oz we eat the pheasant. Of course it tastes like chicken :D. It is a white meat. The breast are delish, I make it simular to chicken. It a recipe calls for chicken I have been substituting pheasant since we have been getting so many of them. I recently made pheasant enchiladas and they were fantastic. I don’t care for the legs as they are full of tendons and tough and you need to watch out for little steel pellets from the shot to get the bird.

The pooches had a long day on Wednesday for their hunting day. We went hunting with a puppy from one of Nellie’s previous litters. Riley is 4 yrs old and had a lot of energy when it comes to hunting. When we first let the dogs out of the truck they had to run as fast as they could and play grab ass. That is what we call chasing after each other and trying to grab them. They did this for awhile until they figured out they should be sticking their noses to the ground and picking up scents instead of grabbing each others asses. We had a 6 hr hunt and got our 4 birds. It was a day of running, walking, stopping to take a break (but not for long) and off hopping threw the bogs in the marsh, running threw the water and more running, walking, running. They really got their work out this day. They were poop’ed by the end of the day and curled up on the couch to take a snooze. Senior gal Nellie kept right up with them.

  1. Great follow up post. We got a pheasant from our neighbor once too. Sadly it was a prehistoric guy and my parents said it was more like one of Easy’s chewing bones. Maybe our neighbor knew it and that was the reason for the unexpected gift.


  2. Awesome follow-up, thanks for joining us in the blog hop! I love all the things you are doing for Norman’s memory, it is heart warming and inspiring.

    I love talking poop too, but I don’t have the balls to put a photo of a pooping dog up. 😉

    Have a great weekend!!


  3. Great photos of the dogs running and enjoying themselves, and then crashed afterwards….it looks like they have a pretty comfy couch there! I never thought too much about pheasant, but I think that is something I might try if I ever got the opportunity.


  4. Wow an action packed week! As for the senior adoption, I understand that it takes money to run a rescue, but the best rescues imo do fundraising to help with their expenses. I saw an opinion piece recently about how rescues have simply replaced breeders (or puppy millers) as those selling puppies at pet stores and it is apparently big money. Kind of made me think.
