"Mimi" Relented For Camille "Will Jump For Chicken" Czarnecki

(Something like what happened)

Camille: (Doing something.)

"Auntie Nicole": (🤔🤷🏽‍♀️) Holy heck—what is she doing?"

"Mimi": That was Cam. She wanted the chicken bone so badly, she just went after it. I could not give Cam the bone, but I let Reilly and Camille lick my fingers.

Camille: (Barking and "nearly jump[ing] on the bone" and "lunging at the bone after the fact")

"Mimi": No, Cam; I can't give you the bone. I don't have any chicken. Maybe tomorrow.

"Mimi"/"Auntie Michelle": Oh, alright; I'll let you lick my fingers.

Camille and Reilly: ("Are you kidding? They went at it—they just went at it," and obviously more than obliged. -"Mimi"/"Auntie Michelle")

(The chicken was better than bird feathers!)

An Reply To An Email That "Momma" Received This Morning, And An Incidental Note

By the way, "Momma" blacked out the email address of the emailer in question, as well as replaced one word in the email and blacked out the puppy's name to protect the emailer's privacy—and she is publishing the email here because the questions could really be FAQ questions, given that they were well-thought-of questions:

Hi, Dr. and Mrs. Halari:

Per your queries:

1. Joyce was and is a wonderful, loving, knowledgeable, and competent breeder. "Love Little Dogs" is truly an honest and accurate name for her website. By the way, we referred neighbors (Shelby's owners) to her, and they in turn referred other neighbors (Solo's owners) to Joyce. (Also, please tell Joyce that Reilly, Camille, Shelby, Solo, and Fenway are all doing well. I should mention, too, that Camille and Shelby are maternal sisters, and "Tootsie's [Camille's and Shelby's mom's] grandmother is Apple's [Reilly's mom's] sister.")
2. Reilly and Camille each adjusted well to being brought home. Reilly was not brought home until she was three days short of nine weeks old, and Camille was not brought home until she was 10 weeks and five days old.
3. They've been very good; thank you for asking.
4. Yes. Smaller dogs will have more risk for issues such as luxating patella and UTIs, for example, though that is a genetic-based risk and not due to breeder fault.
5. Yes. I'd read up on dog ownership, talk to the vet, talk to neighbors and loved ones whom've owned dogs, and certainly talk to Joyce :-). 
6. Yes, though that's also genetic. For example, Reilly is allergic to heartworm pills (We ended up opting for heartworm vaccines, a booster shot of which she got yesterday)

Good morning,

I'm reaching out to you about Ole Field Farm puppies. My [family] and I are inquiring and truly planning on buying one from Joyce. She's been great and "Ollie" (the Male Morkie) have been great but we wanted to hear from previous customers about their reviews.
1. What did you think about Joyce?
2. How about you pet after you took them home?
3. How have they been?
4. Anything to look out for?
5. Any pointers for first time dog owners?
6. Any specific health issues with your pets?

We are so excited and plan on picking up Ollie tomorrow morning (9/15), please let use know what you think, it would mean a lot to us.

Thank you,
- Dr. and Mrs. Halari





PS Admittedly, this is at least a small comfort for what "Momma" has been enduring of late—and not to mention that Reilly has been a lifesaver through all that "Momma" has endured¹.

¹Including confusion re what a certain someone wants. Note to him, by the way: 

Tengo algunes preguntas muy cándidas y una admisión cándida para tí, si me permite te preguntar las preguntas; y lo siento si son demasiada francas. A esto punto, necesito las preguntar y la admitir a tí, especialmente porque pronto llegará Yom Kipur (y no pienso que Jesús escribió mi nombre en el Libro de Vida sin razón): 


  • ¿Amas o no amas mí y Reily?
  • ¿Pienses o no pienses que eres mi futuro esposo y el futuro "Papi" de Reily?
  • ¿No entendí algunas cosas que dijiste implicitamente hasta muy tarde, entendí?
  • En mi defensa, el momento y las circunstancias no estuvieron el momento y las circunstancias para mí entender qué dijiste. También, el caso no está y no estuvo que no me culpo por manejando algunas cosas en las circunstancias en una manera que no estuvo bueno; y lo siento por cualquier daño que he creado, incluyendo cualquier daño que he creado para tí y Reilly—y no es fácil por mí admitir, aunque neceisto lo admitir que por cualquier daño que he creado, incluyendo cualquier daño que he creado para tí y Reilly, y en parte para mí estar una ¨Máma¨ mejor a Reily y (si Yejovah quiere) ser una buena esposa para tí algún día.

A Quick Update On Reilly & Camille

The "gwirls" are doing well and are back to normal. In fact:


  1. Both Reilly and Camille were back to normal within a day, and Reilly was back to normal within 12-18 hours!
  2. Both Reilly and Camille are their lovably-bratty and brattily-lovable selves.
  3. Both Reilly and Camille freaked out with the groundhog being back—in fact, Camille was scared of it when she went to try to "go potty" the night after the dental cleaning, and Reilly wanted to chase it yesterday!
  4. Reilly is back to her jealous self—she even zoomed into the family room at the right side of the couch and did a dominance show on Camille when Camille went to say "Hi!" to someone! It was surreal—like she was in a commercial or a movie, or a video game!
  5. Poor Reilly has to deal with "Momma", although (for good and bad) she tolerates her!

Generalized(!) Anesthesia, And How Reilly & Camille Are Doing

So, a worried "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" called Banfield this morning after "Mom-Mom" dropped off Reilly and Camille, and just got an update from "Mo. From what "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" heard:


  1. Reilly and Camille were under generalized (not local) anesthesia.
  2.  The surgery went on for 15 minutes, and occurred at about 10:30 or 11:30 ("Momma" heard at 9:22 that Reilly and Camille had to wait for one to two hours while the vet spayed two com-pup-triots of theirs.).
  3. This morning and as of now, both Reilly and Camille were and are fine. They were and are generally well behaved—they only barked when "Mom-Mom left".
  4. They're getting a normal heartrate and other normal vital signs back—their heartrate was low while they were under anesthesia(!).

Anesthesia? One Had Better Believe That....

Despite that Reilly's and Camille's previous teeth-cleaning surgery went well, "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" is scared for Reilly and Camille (as is "Auntie Michelle"/"Mimi"). Besides:


  1. Reilly and Camille are going to be dropped off at the vet at 7:00-7:30 in the morning.
  2. They will not have had treats since 7:30 tonight or their morning "num nums" at 7:00.
  3. They already don't understand why they can't have treats for "good peedies".
  4. Despite that Reilly is getting localized anesthesia and even did well with generalized anesthesia when she was spayed, Reilly is a 14.5-pound adult puppy whom could be easily adversely affected by anesthesia—and "Momma" as a 5'0"-5'1" human whom weighs about 124 pounds had an awful experience with anesthesia when she had an ITB Pump put into her (though it was mostly caffeine withdrawal that affected her to not hold even water down by the fourth day of recovery—although having to have the oxygen tubes put back in once after she woke up from the anesthesia was enough of a sign that the anesthesia affected her somewhat and made the caffeine withdrawal worse).
Scared-for-Reilly "Momma"? Scared-for-Camille "Auntie Nicole"? You bet, and both "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" and "Auntie Michelle"/"Mimi" ask people to pray on Reilly's and Camille's behalves.        

Happy Labor Day From Reilly And Camille!

Working On "Follow Me" With Reilly, And An Incidental Note

"Momma" is working on "Follow me" with Reilly, and Reilly had "Follow me" basically had it down when she and "Momma" worked on it before. Reilly seems to be doing well with "Follow me" after going "potty" and when going inside to get a treat (Stubborn Camille is another discussion: she refuses to even listen to "Auntie Nicole" when "Auntie Nicole" tells her "Follow me". Then again, Camille can be overall stubborn—as, for example, she was last night when "Mimi" thought that she had a piece of plastic in her mouth. She gave her a hard time about checking for any plastic, too!).

As for going upstairs and following "Momma" at night, Reilly is still working on that—although she's mostly listened to "Momma" and earned the treat that she gets each time that she follows "Momma". "Momma" has to sometimes pull Reilly back and remind her, "You don't lead me. I lead you." or "You follow me; I don't follow you."

Incidentally and meanwhile, "Momma" has had horrid mental-illness flareups again due to confusion re a certain subject—while she thinks that she knows what a certain person wants, he has to tell her eventually (or does she have to ask him? Either way, someone has to budge and tell. Besides, she—for instance—doesn't look forward to getting older—let alone old—alone or continuing to detrimentally affect Reilly.)

An Impromptu "Catch" Session With Camille And Reilly

Even though this is well over the ~24-hours-period that "Auntie Nicole"/"Momma", it demonstrates un otro día a la casa de Camila Dominica y Reily Rosalita. Besides, "Auntie Nicole"/"Momma" was looking for writing fodder (since she knows that Camille and Reilly can provide writing fodder)—after all, for starters, she didn't want to keep resharing blog entries ad nauseum.

Of course, "Mimi"/"Auntie Michelle" insists that "Auntie Nicole"/"Momma" was being mean when some treats fell under one of the chairs and the family room coffee table, and when Reilly had to do the "How long can you stand?" trick as one of her tricks (Excuse "Momma" for not wanting Reilly's back legs to atrophy or otherwise be unable to function in her senior years!).

When Camille had practiced "Catch" a few days ago, she actually caught the treat at one point. She also caught the treat at one point tonight, and "Auntie Nicole"/"Momma" even had her watch Reilly a few times and tried to get Reilly to not steal Camille's treats (and as usual, some of the treats also fell under Reilly's stealth eye and quick treat-getting downswoop. "Auntie Nicole"/"Momma" also compensated Camille for unreachable and stolen treats.).

La casa de Camila y Reily es sin duda su casa. ¡Hay no "Mi casa es su casa" con ellas a menos que alguien es firme con ellaso al menos a menos que en el caso de Reily, si Dios quiere y algún día, "Máma" tiene alguien la ayudar con ella estando una "Máma" a Reily!

Happy National Puppy Day 2017!




Happy National Puppy ("Dog") Day!

Despite "Momma"'s/"Auntie Nicole"'s rough morning, "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" is kvelling since she just found out that today's National Puppy ("Dog") Day¹ in the United States! Meanwhile, look for a National Puppy Day card later, since "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" has to have Reilly and Camille get their picture taken for a National Puppy Day card!



¹Since puppies are always puppies, whether Pre-Adult, Adult, or Senior Puppies

Camille Is In Love With Her New Toy, Hedgehog

"Auntie Nicole" deliberately left the videos shaky to show the effects of her Cerebral Palsy, including her myoclonus flareups.





















Cam unintentionally looks like a hedgehog in this creative-effects shot!










Reilly's Barking Only Causes "Momma"'s OCD/Anxiety To Flare Up

Part of the reason that "Momma"'s considering DBS Surgery is that Reilly's barking can flare up "Momma"'s OCD/Anxiety—and today is one of those horrid days on which Reilly's inappropriate barking is causing a flare up. "Momma" has a hard time sleeping at night, anyway, due to the OCD/Anxiety in part—and then the OCD/Anxiety in turn flares up due "Momma"'s tiredness. As a result, Reilly's inappropriate stresses her out more and effects the OCD/Anxiety to flare up—especially when she won't listen when she's told to stop barking.

It's a vicious cycle of OCD/Anxiety flareups, "Momma"'s lack of sleeping well, OCD/Anxiety flareups, and Reilly's inappropriate barking causing more stresses.

So Far, The "Gwirls" Are Doing Well With The Eclipse. As For "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole"....

She, if you will, cheated and watched the Solar Eclipse on a newscast livestream. Incidentally, meanwhile, she wishes that she had someone with whom the watch the Solar Eclipse in 2024—and in any case, meanwhile, Reilly is not watching it because "Momma" does not want Reilly to freak out or go blind. 

The Solar Eclipse Worries "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" For Reilly's & Camille's Sakes

For example:

  1. Are the girls going to understand to any extent what's happening?
  2. Could they, God forbid, get blinded by the strength of the sun's rays?
  3. How will they react to the temperature drop? 
"Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" could not get back to sleep because she thought of how Reilly and Camille would react to the solar eclipse.

Just When "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" Thinks That Reilly & Camille May Not Give Her Writing Fodder....

They do. For example:


  1. Reilly demonstrated that treats are her price for a trick. With Reilly, Halloween would be "No trick if no treat." Not even a scritch or belly rub works at all (or at least usually).
  2. Reilly and Camille gave, respectively, "Mom-Mom" and "Auntie Michelle"/"Mimi" quite the scratches today when a kid accidentally let go of his one-year-old Golden Retriever's leash and thus affected Reilly and Camille to freak out over a very-playful and much-bigger-than-them puppy. Understandably, the Golden Retriever freaked out in return and affected "Mom-Mom" and "Auntie Michelle"/"Mimi" to have to pick up Reilly and Camille quickly.
  3. Reilly barked and set off "Momma"'s myoclonus again right before she and Camille went upstairs for their evening nap. Despite that "Auntie Michelle" doesn't like "Momma" saying so, Reilly is going to kill "Momma" someday unless "Momma" has someone to be a helpmate to her in general and to help her out with being a "Momma" to Reilly.
  4. Camille just ran upstairs without "Mimi"'s and "Mom-Mom"'s permission a while agp because Camille really wanted to take her evening nap.

To All Of The August (And Other Months) Babies

Including to "Momma"'s/"Auntie Nicole"'s friend's Brat Terrier, Taquito 😉
PS Since Reilly's and Camille's half-year birthdays are in September, "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" might make a special birthday card then; and she might make birthday cards for all of the months thereafter—and bribe Reilly and Camille with dentasticks!

Why "Momma" & Reilly Didn't Say "Night Nights" On Livestream Last Night, And...

Once again, as has been pretty much the case all week, "Momma" has had trouble getting comfortable and falling asleep at night—part of that, of course, has to do with thinking about a certain subject. As for why "Momma" and Reilly didn't say "Night nights" last night on livestream, that has to do with that "Auntie Michelle" was so tired.

By the way, a couple of anecdotes (mostly from "Mom-Mom") regarding Reilly's and Camille's vet visit:


  1. "Mom-Mom" shot down "Momma"'s/"Auntie Nicole"'s idea of taking Reilly and Camille to pick up "Auntie Michelle"/"Mimi" from after the vet visit—notwithstanding that "Momma"'/"Auntie Nicole"' wanted Reilly and especially Camille to have a good experience after visiting the vet and while being on a car ride.
  2. The thunder and lighting exacerbated Camille's vet-visit anxiety.
  3. Reilly actually jumped into the vet tech's arms when he told Reilly, "Come on, Ri. Let's get your weight." Meanwhile, Reilly is now slightly underweight (14.5 pounds) and was actually obese (18.2 pounds 👀) "about a year ago"—how much can change in a year!
  4. Even though Reilly and Camille let their thunder-and-lighting-induced anxiety affect them to not behave as well at the beginning of their vet visit, both behaved for the vet techs and the vet overall. Camille also—from per "Mom-Mom" and "Mimi"—did not have an anxiety-induced "potty" accident like she's had in the past!

Hearing Reilly Drink Some Water This Morning

For Reilly to drink water is significant, given that Reilly doesn't drink as much water as she should (Maybe Reilly somehow picked up on "Momma"'s lack of drinking enough water—to be fair to herself, though, "Momma" should mention that she often avoids a lot of water to prevent IBS flareups.).

When "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" heard somebody drinking water, then, she turned around to see who was drinking around. She saw that Camille was (and still is) napping on the chair behind her (and Reilly is now napping on the couch in an adjacently-across-from-Camille position).

Meanwhile, "Momma" is preparing to have to take Reilly "peedy" soon (and may have to tell Reilly—as she sometimes has to tell her—to "hurry up and find a peedy spot [because she has] to go peedy") and drink (besides maybe a little bit of coffee) a little bit of water (and notwithstanding that many say that those like "Momma" give in to the counterproductive paradox of avoiding water while drinking caffeinated beverages, let her just say that caffeine helps keep her as homeostatic as she can be—besides, she had to literally have caffeine in her IV drip as she recovered from ITB Pump surgery, since she couldn't hold down even water for the first four days of recovery!).

By the way, Camille just moved from the chair to the couch, and she's napping to the left of Reilly and watching "Auntie Nicole" as "Auntie Nicole" finishes this blog entry. As for Reilly, she just rolled over onto her back and is anticipating a belly rub from "Momma".

There Were Definitely Some Not-So-Fun Points in Reilly's & Camille's Day

For example:


  1. "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" had to yell at Reilly and Camille, threaten to use the spray bottle, and then (after they were done barking inappropriately) explain to them why their inappropriate barking could cause her to fall someday. Camille learned her lesson more than Reilly learned her lesson, though both still barked inappropriately at points throughout the day.
  2. "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" had to tell Reilly and Camille that the aide that comes over every day to help her get out won't be coming over anymore, about which they really sad (Meanwhile, why the aide isn't coming over involves a long story & gives more for a point that "Mom-Mom"'s insistence re an aide for "Momma/Auntie Nicole" just isn't going to work.).
  3. Unlike Camille with the first around, Reilly didn't "find a peedy spot" the second time around or get any yogurt as a treat for finding "a peedy spot".

Reilly & Camille May Cause "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" To Break Her Head Someday!

This morning, Reilly and Camille set off "Momma"'s/"Auntie Nicole"'s myoclonus again (and even as "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" types, Reilly and Camille are setting off her myoclonus)! As a result and earlier in the day, "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" swore that Reilly and Camille are going to cause her to break her head someday. As for when they've barked in the past and set off her myoclonus, she has even asked them if they want to cause her to fall and die someday by barking like they bark.

Meanwhile, Reilly's inappropriate barking is part of why "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" changed her mind on writing about a certain subject—she needs someone whom can exert authority over Reilly than she can (She even just said right now, "Those two are gonna ****ing kill me" as Reilly and Camille bark and she can't exert authority over them)!
