Flaky Peeps ETC

Hey boys and girls!  We have had a BLAST reading all the FLAKY PEEP POSTS this week.  We're kinda sorry it's over!  Hmmm, maybe SOMEONE wants to make it a regular features!  Sarge? Frankie? anyone, anyone (apologies to Ferris Bueller).  Stay tuned as the winners are revealed next week!

Even though our Mom is a total FLAKE, we couldn't seem to come up with anything AMUSING to share that she would actually LET us share.  But she did something this VERY MORNING that just illustrates what an incredible FLAKE she is so we're gonna share it NOW.  Even if it means NO TREATS for a WHOLE DAY! haha

So, here's what went down first thing this morning.  Mom has decided to trade coffee for hot chocolate during the cold winter months.  Yeah, we know, it's more fattening but doesn't make her as jittery, which is good for ALL of us! BOL!  Anyway, she uses the kind in the little packets that you just add to HOT WATER.  Sometimes she boils the water on the stove.  Sometimes she just pops the cup of water in the microwave.  It's really better if she microwaves it 'cause she tends to forget about the boiling water on the stove if she walks away and doesn't set a timer.  ANYWAY, she put the cup in the microwave for like a minute and a half.  *DING* She opens the microwave and gets out the cup and guess WHAT!  There's NO WATER in it!  Really!  She FORGOT to put WATER in the cup! bwahahahahahaha  Now THAT'S FLAKY!

While you're shaking your head over that FLAKINESS, we've got a miscellaneous piece of info to share.  We just read this post on FB this morning and thought it might help somepup somewhere sometime who suffers from seizures.  We need to say first, though, that we KNOW there are probably as many reasons/causes for seizures as there are dogs that have them.  Everypup is very different and sometimes it's hard to pin down a cause and it depends on tons of different things.  Having said that, we still think this post is worth reading in case it helps someone along the way.  It's on our Pit Bull Frogs FB page BUT we're pretty sure you don't have to have a FB account or sign up in any way to look at this link -  If you can't access the link, but are interested in reading the post, let us know and we'll send it to you in an email.  Basically, it was determined that the cause of a little rescue pup's seizures were the Kibbles 'n Bits he was being fed at his new furever home.  His food was changed and he's all better now.

Suka said...

BOL! Forgetting water! Something only a human could do! Great flake post! I am sure your mom will still give you treats today. :->

So furry happy the seizure issue was found and the pup is good to go. My human has been getting nervous about all dog foods and what could be in them. Since human food is turning more and more into poison, we worry about animal food. Furry glad the pup is now O.K.!

It's true that many different things can bring on seizures. Our sissy, April, would have them whenever she was stressed out. She started taking medication 3 years ago and hasn't had a seizure since. We also try to keep her stress-free. Seems to be working.

Wow who knew your food could cause seizures. Thanks for cluing us in.

Anyways, BOL on nuking a CUP! Mom has made coffee in the coffee maker without coffee in the filter. And she has made coffee WITH coffee in the filter but no cup to catch the coffee coming out of the coffee maker. Oh, wot a mess that makes. If'n one of us peed on the floor like that coffee pouring off the kitchun counter.... Yup, I say make this a regular feeture coz we could just go on and on and on... Oops, furgot mom be watching ofur my shoulder. But seriously, this woz tons of funs and we has BOL'd and LOL'd ourselves silly all week long at the flakiness.

We couldn't think of anything flaky that was really good enough to post, especially after we read all the really good ones out there. But now that you mention the cup with no water, we have one even better, how about running the microwave with no cup in there? Seriously, she has done THAT many times.

Been there, done that. My mom has actually done this before! By the way, my mom prefers to mix coffee and hot chocolate - Cafe Mocha. It's like hot chocolate with a jolt of caffeine. Your mom might not like them if coffee makes her jittery. My mom pretty much can't function without caffeine and chocolate so they work for her.

Your pal, PIp

You guys may be flaky but you sure are public service-minded. I don't know any pups who experience seizures right now, but it is nice to know there's resources for when I meet one who does!

Just Jess for now said... think that sounds like something I would have done LOL

Bunk said...

Ahahaha! That is so funny. Your mom sounds just like my female human. Forgetful and silly at times. Be careful, I lost blueberry treats (my favorite) for 30 seconds when I decided to tell on my female human.Can't wait to see the winners!

Flake alert!
I wanted to respond to your question. Nope I do nt wear a sweater or jaket. When MOM brought me home almost 12 years ago she tried to get me to waer a really cool jacket. But I would keep unzipping it and taking it off. I guess I am tough like that. But I do like to sleep under the covers at night with MOM. So maybe not so tough
