"OK girsl...let's start to get ready.....sweet potatos???check,soft music.....check,soft quiet stuffies....check, bandages...check medicine....check.....blender...(Lacie you bring this) what else???? " Aggie
"You know me. I'm very quiet, except when there is a cat, bunny, or squirrel around. Do they have those over in England?

Besides my nurses cap, what else do you want me to bring? How 'bout some bully sticks?"

"Oh My...I AM SO NERVOUS....THE ORIGINAL JACKSON HEADNURSE ASTA FROM DOWN UNDER?? What if she asks me the muscles in the chest? The bones connecting to the ribs??? Oh my...I have to study!! And blood gases and acid base balance...I ALWAYS GET SCREWED UP ON WHETHER IT'S RESP. OR METABOLIC ACIDOSIS...all those arrows...and chest tubes...I'll probably drop it...Aggie...i know ur never supposed to clamp it....I learned that ages ago....OH MY! Koobie...we have to make the tea...gallons of it....and Asta asked us to boil some chicken broth and to make the jello...hmm....if we have extra jello, Dunstan and I may fill up the tub...oops....never mind.
Um....I look like NOT A WIRE FOXY. Do you think Jackson minds that I'm not like all wiry??? Oh well....
Koobie's right....WE ROCK, GIRLS!!!!!
Love, Lacie....XXOOXXOOOOO"

Huskee and Hershey said...

It'd be great to have a quiet celebration for Jackson's barkday... Mom says she will boil some chicken soup for Jackson and I will take it with me when I come to the pawty.
You girls are the best nurses ever so I am sure Jackson will be well soon under your care.

Amber-Mae said...

Heard about Jax's great news too! Oooh, I'll head over Ruby's blog now to make reservations. It's gonna be fun!

powder-puff said...

You guys are definitely the best nurse dream team around!

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Wow, look at the dream team! I think this may be a looooong convalesence, hehehe! J x

Moco said...

How could he not get better with all of you taking care of him. We will continue the circle of healing vibes. Don't lose those hats under the bed.

Kyanite said...

Yes that certainly is the dream team!

And, if Eric can't put everyone up you can always come to me in Dreamingspires...

Love, pats & pets

Molly the Airedale said...

We can tell that you have everything under control, Asta! Now for the patient to come home! We're in for the quiet fly-over pawty!

Deetz said...

You girls are the greatest nurses. I always hope I never get sick, but sometimes I wish I would get sick so you guys would take care of me...but, then I don't want to be sicky...So, I will just pretend to be sometimes....
I made my reservations.
I will post a pic of my girlfriend next weekend. I was moping around last night and mum didn't know what was wrong with me..she thought my girlyfriend broke up with me...but, I think she finally figured it out, cuz she told daddy that I was missin my playmate really really bad and they needed to do something about it. I wonder what they will do. Sorry for the long posty.

Stanley said...

Sweet Asta Nursie BabE!

I have NO DOUBT that Jackson is in the best paws possible, and that he will get world-class care from all of your nursie crew. Just take it easy on him, okay? None of Lacie's funky jello shots... yet.

You guys have fun together while you're working your magic on Jax. He's a lucky pup to have the dream team all to himself.

We'll keep praying and wishing on the dogstar, and please give Jackson the boatload of healing goober smooches I sent, okay?

Goober love & smooches,

Lady Kaos said...

Jackson should be recovered in no time with all of you there to help!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

We haven't felt like blogging all week. But we had to stop by and say hi!


We are so happy that Jackson is doing so well!

Gus said...

Okey Dokey...muzzer says if it is OK with Eric's hoomans, I can go. She thought we shouldn't all be pawtying around Jax, cause he needs rest and quiet love most of all. But now she is cooking some Pastina and Egg for Jackson...my sissies call it "Strega Nonna's Brew"


CRIZ LAI said...

Hooray! Jackson is recovering fast! Th power of purrs and prayers sure help a lot :) Nice work to the nursing team!


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Asta...I know someone will have to stay with Jackson instead of being on Aire Ruby and I volunteer for that shift. You can be loud on the plane, can't ya??? The other Wheelies are free to go to the pawty, cept for Dunny...I might need him to run er Wheel some errands or something.

I think I completely messed up the tea...I'll post on it later. It seems it's a bit more complicated to make a proper tea than I had thought. Sniff.

Barkies, Sweet Asta...I hope Asta from Oz doesn't realize how nervous I am around her. I didn't mean to drop the um full bedpan on her paw. She was a pretty good sport about it, don't ya think??

Barkies, Lacie

Mr. Hendrix said...

Clover said...

Jackson is a lucky guy to have such great nurse friends!
I am thinking about him still and I hope he recovers quickly!
Love Clover xo

Lizzy said...


I am SO relieved to hear that Jackson is getting better! We are still thinking of him and wishing him a quick recovery!

Sign me up for the pawty! You know, Jackson and I have one thing in common... We both have the same birthday! How cool is that?!
