Polar Pig ๐Ÿฝ & Ralph ๐Ÿ–ค  The lives of a mutt and former mama Elder Bull trying to promote +R and shelter dog love.

Today is an extremely special day! On July 10, 2014, a very sickly #pocketpittie came into our lives as a foster. A 40 lb little lady found chained in a parking lot, most likely because she couldn't have puppies anymore, was afflicted with three mammary gland tumors (which were benign!), atopic dermatitis, chronic ear infections, and possible soft tissue sarcoma (also benign!). She was pulled from an animal shelter in Trenton, NJ, by an ACO with a heart of gold (@mrs.mestre)and transferred to another municipal shelter with more resources, where I met her. She needed to be in foster care for 3 weeks, prior to being considered for a mammary gland tumor study in dogs at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA. Long story short, this sickly little pittie was Polar Pig, we foster failed super hard, obviously (made it official in October 2014). Many thanks to everyone for their support over the years, and especially to Ralph for being so helpful and welcoming to this little weirdo. I don't know how much time our little pig has left with us, but, we truly cherish every moment with her. I hope she likes living with us as much as we like having her. #PolarPigAndRalph #AdoptTheCropped #PittieLove #ElderBull #pitbulllove #pittieparty #pittiesofinsta #pittie #AdoptDontShop #dbmp #pitbulls #pitbullsarelove #pitbullsofig #flapsofdestiny #buddies #monochrome #monochromatic #blackandwhite #seniordog #blackdog #blackdogsrule #blackdogsofinstagram #bff #floppyears #croppedears

I've been in Florida visiting family and friends for the week! Polar and Ralph stayed home with their man human, I miss them but will be reunited tomorrow! In the meantime, here is a photo of my brother's dog, Panda. Any guesses as to what she is? I think she looks like a black Santa's Little Helper. ๐Ÿ˜Happy #4thofjuly weekend! #๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #PolarPigAndRalph #AdoptTheCropped #PittieLove #ElderBull #pitbulllove #pittieparty #pittiesofinsta #pittie #AdoptDontShop #dbmp #pitbulls #pitbullsarelove #pitbullsofig #flapsofdestiny #buddies #monochrome #monochromatic #blackandwhite #seniordog #blackdog #blackdogsrule #blackdogsofinstagram #bff #floppyears #croppedears

Polar has a raging UTI, she was not symptomatic until early this morning. Her urine sample was collected via cystocentesis and sent to @idexxlab for urine culture and susceptibility testing. I did collect a free catch sample, which determined she did, indeed, have a UTI. Here she is being the most cooperative patient ever; she thought she was laying in the trough to get belly rubs (which she definitely was given). โค๏ธ๐Ÿฝ#l(ps: thanks, E! @erinashley27) #PolarPigAndRalph #AdoptTheCropped #PittieLove #ElderBull #pitbulllove #pittieparty #pittiesofinsta #pittie #AdoptDontShop #dbmp #pitbulls #pitbullsarelove #pitbullsofig #flapsofdestiny #buddies #monochrome #monochromatic #blackandwhite #seniordog #blackdog #blackdogsrule #blackdogsofinstagram #bff #floppyears #croppedears #veterinary #veterinarymedicine

My little sweetie isn't feeling well today. She's pretty down and out and had 4 accidents in the house, which is extremely unlike her. She's coming to work with me today to get to the bottom of this. She gets UTIs annually, it seems, but empirically, they've happened in the fall. My anxiety is through the roof currently about this - hopefully, it's nothing serious. #MillionDollarDog #PolarPigAndRalph #AdoptTheCropped #PittieLove #ElderBull #pitbulllove #pittieparty #pittiesofinsta #pittie #AdoptDontShop #dbmp #pitbulls #pitbullsarelove #pitbullsofig #flapsofdestiny #buddies #monochrome #monochromatic #blackandwhite #seniordog #blackdog #blackdogsrule #blackdogsofinstagram #bff #floppyears #croppedears #veterinary #vetmedicine #pleasebeokay #babygirl

Ralph: "I am communicating with the speaker-wolves-of-@youtube!"
Polar: "I don't know what I am doing! I am impersonating my buddy, Ralph! Is this being a dog?!" #PolarPigAndRalph

Tennis balls are Ralph's all-time, favorite toy; Kong's squeaky tennis ball being his number one (he does not discriminate, though, squeaker or no squeaker). Polar does not care for tennis balls, but, must examine everything that squeaks very, very intently. It's only after this extensive examination that she can comfortably sit by her food bowl until dinner (or second dinner). #PolarPigAndRalph #AdoptTheCropped #PittieLove #ElderBull #pitbulllove #pittieparty #pittiesofinsta #pittie #AdoptDontShop #dbmp #pitbulls #pitbullsarelove #pitbullsofig #flapsofdestiny #buddies #monochrome #monochromatic #blackandwhite #seniordog #blackdog #blackdogsrule #blackdogsofinstagram #bff #floppyears #croppedears #tennisball #dogsrule #iflmdog #adorabull

Somehow, this post was deleted. I don't know if I pocket deleted it or how this happened. Anyway, it's entirely too cute to not repost. Here is Polar making it "easy" for me to leave for work...sike! #PolarPigAndRalph #AdoptTheCropped #PittieLove #ElderBull #pitbulllove #pittieparty #pittiesofinsta #pittie #AdoptDontShop #dbmp #pitbulls #pitbullsarelove #pitbullsofig #flapsofdestiny #buddies #monochrome #monochromatic #blackandwhite #seniordog #blackdog #blackdogsrule #blackdogsofinstagram #bff #floppyears #croppedears
