Help Rossy’s Emergency Surgery!

RossySurgery

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately this will be a bit of a sad post today.

Our sweet, gentle, kind, loving, loyal, and beloved Germany Shepherd, Rossy was rushed to emergency hospital last night for GDV. GDV or Gastric Dilatation Volvulus is what happened to Marley if you’ve ever watched the movie Marley & Me. It almost killed him.

Rossy’s stomach was so bloated. He could barely walk. His breaths were shallow. A surgeon was called in to perform emergency surgery on him to untwist his stomach.

Many of you loyal Mockeri readers know about our beloved Rossy, who is a part of our family. You might also know a bit about the rough patch we’ve been through with our 6 month old daughter Aria. Well, Rossy has been our rock throughout. He’s helped her, helped us, been patient, a companion and cheered us up on a bad day. Aria and Rossy share a special bond. He is the only one that lights her up and makes her laugh and giggle when she’s not well. Now it’s our turn to support him.

This is an expense we obviously had no question to pay, but also one we weren’t prepared for. If there are any dog-loving friends out there who would love to contribute to Rossy’s emergency surgery fund, we would be eternally grateful.

Thank you so much.

Introducing the newest Mockeri member!

This face is the reason why Mockeri has been so quietly lately. But with a smile like hers, I’m hoping all is forgiven!

Introducing my little bubba Aria Monroe. She was born at 4:24pm on the 29th July (yes she’s already over 3 months old now!) at a very teeny tiny 2.39kgs. The past few months have been a complete whirlwind. We’ve had a bit of a rocky start with numerous doctor and hospital visits. I practically have the whole pharmacy at my house! We are working through reflux, allergies and redundant colon issues (the poor bubba) but as Ari grows older, she is getting more settled day by day.

It will be a very long road ahead as many of these issues will only settle through time and her little body growing bigger. We have our bad days (can’t remember the number of times I’ve attempted to write up this blog post – it’s been a work in progress for 3 months!) and our good days (I get to eat my main meals, shower and maybe even enjoy a full cup of tea before it gets cold!).

But her smiles, laughs and giggles always brighten my moments of frustration. When her tummy isn’t given her cramps, she is the happiest baby on this planet. She recognises us and smiles at all three of us – Mummy, Daddy and Rossy! And I swear (not being bias at all) that she is SO bright! She is constantly alert (baby don’t sleep), and she looks around at everything. I point to things and she looks with those big (most likely brown) eyes of hers. Rossy is equally infatuated with her. He is SO protective of her. Ever since we brought her home from the hospital, he’s been on high(-er) alert! Such a good guard dog.

Sorry for the extreme lack of posts lately! I have a whole bunch of stuff I want to blog, create and post about. Hopefully, I will find myself with more time up my sleeve as the weeks go on, so please don’t go anywhere!Signature

Baby: Nappy Bags

NappyBags

I am now officially half way into my pregnancy (woohoo! *throws confetti) and I have eyeing me some nappy bags. It’s been a very long time since I bought a nice new bag for myself and I’m looking for one that I can use out, every day but that is also practical and long lasting (this will hopefully be a bag I can use for baby #2). Here are some Nappy Bags I’ve come across.

ONE // Oroton Nylon Baby Backpack
TWO // Colette Hayman Travel Baby Bag
THREE // Mimco Lucid Baby Bag
FOUR // OiOi Charcoal Faux Buffalo Carry Diaper Bag
FIVE // Pottery Barn Kids Classic Mum Nappy Bag
SIX // iltutto Nico Tate In NavySignature
