It just wasn't meant to be...

We received some sad news today. Rosie is no longer pregnant. She started refusing food this morning when at 8 weeks, she should have been eating house and home, so her Mum took her to the vet. They performed a scan and there were no puppies, although she has gained weight.

The good news is, Rosie is perfectly fine and in good health. She was out playing with the rest of the gang this evening when our Mommies spoke. This just wasn't the right time for her to have a litter. We are confident that time will come.

Needless to say, the Dughallmor beagles, while relieved that Rosie is well, are shattered by this news—sad and disappointed. They are continuing to have computer problems but know that all of our dear friends are sending loving prayers and best wishes their way right now.

My darling Rosie Posie is a strong Scots lassie and will be just fine.

Sorry to hear it, but glad Rosie is okay.

Stanley said...


I'm sorry to hear that Rosie is not having the puppies, but I'm stinkin' glad she is okay! Please give her some soothing goob smooches from me and Stella, and an atomic booty scritch from my girl (I think you should have that maneuver memorized since my girl spent so much time giving them to you... no hard feelings, man.)

We love you both! Please know we're here for you.

Goob love,

Unknown said...

Oh no, Petey - that is awful news! I am so sorry for you - although the important thing is you still have each other and there will be chances for more puppies in the future. I'm going straight over to the Dugallmore Beagles now to see Rosie!

ps. I actually came over to say I loved your comment on Clive's blog - about people thinking you're a grimy Westie in dire need of a bath!!

How sad --for you and for your bride and her family.

And we too, as part of the extended family, are disappointed.

But one never knows what life has in store - that's why it's so good to have each other!!!

Oh dear. Poor Rosie. I am sure you will be doing your best to comfort her Petey. Your American upbringing will no doubt help you express those feelings in a way that us Scots terriers sometimes find difficult!
Cheers, H.

Oh heck...that is really disappointing and upsetting news Petey. We sure hope Rosie is ok. We're so sorry this happened.
Thanks for letting us know.

Hey Petey, That's a shame about Rosie. But your bday visit should cheer her up.


Toffee said...

I am happy to read that your dear wife is well. So sorry about the pregnancy. Her time will come.


TwoSpecialWires said...

Oh my gosh. We are all feeling SO bad and SO embarrassed! How neglectful can friends be? We just saw this post and finally have put two and two together. We are ashamed, that in the craziness of our holiday, we've not taken the time to be more on top of things. We had no idea that Rosie was no longer a mommy-to-be. We've written Rosie and apologized, and we hope she and her two leggededs accept our apology and very late condolences. But wanted to offer you our apologies, as well. We feel so bad. Here we were even included in the wedding and stupid fools that we were, we had missed this whole shift in events. Please please accept our apologies. We hope you don't think we are horrible friends. We are FEELING horribly!
