I Usually Don't Ask For Prayers Or Good Thoughts

Recommended Posts

Unless it's something really bad, but the way my luck has been going lately, I figure I can use all the them I can get. We have the issues with Jilly Bean, Bebe is eating on and off and is losing weight, Valentino's rear end is becoming weak and he can't run without landing on his bottom. Now tomorrow Pistol and Joey go in for their yearly check up, dentals and are each having corns hulled, so if you can spare some good thoughts that the boys do well tomorrow I would really appreciate it.





The boys are on their way home. They both did very well. Poor Pistol lost 6 teeth and had two corns hulled. JoeyB had one corn hulled. Mike said Pistol ran out of the vet's office door! He was so ready to get in the car and come home. Thank you all for the good thoughts and prayers. They worked!


Valentino did eat his breakfast this morning after I added some Dyne to it and I think Bebe has decided she wants to eat on "her" schedule and not mine. She finally ate breakfast at 9:00 this morning and has refused her dinner which she will probably beg for between 8 and 9 tonight. Darn dog, it's all about control with her, I swear!


Update 2


Honestly I don't know the date because I don't know which end is up right now.


Jilly Bean continues to bleed from her nose, a little more heavily now than before. She's still eating well and playing. The only thing she won't play with is her ball. She gets out of breath too easily and can only breathe through one nostril. She is on an antihistamine and an NSAID that has to be compounded and bless their hearts they made it in liquid form and she loves it so no more fighting with the pills. I think chewing on her ball may hurt so the balls have been put away. She still seems to be a happy girl and still gets in trouble so we just take one day at a time. We have already had the chat with the vet that when she quits eating and playing it will be time to say goodbye to our little baby.


Valentino usually misses a couple of meals each week now. His rear end is giving out. He went for a check up last weekend and is having the same disc problems Heart and Saint had so we know that one of these days his rear end is going to give out all together at some point. We are taking it one day at a time with him also.


Bebe quit eating all together and went from 56lbs. to 48lbs. I finally found a combination of Nutritional Yeast, canned food and kibble did the trick and got her back to eating her meals. Her blood work is fine she just doesn't want to eat any more. She's gained back almost a pound now and seems to have more energy. She actually started playing with me yesterday again. I know it's just a matter of time with her also.


Bullitt has his own thread but he is staying at the vet for a suspected heart problem.


That's about it. The Full House is treading water these days.

You don't usually ask for prayers; I don't usually say them - does that mean if I say some for your boys, they'll be given more or less weight than frequent prayers? For what it's worth, you definitely have them :clover:bighug

You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

I hope it all goes smoothly. :hope


My pack seems to be the same, everyone is great for a while, then for a few months every single dog has an issue. It seems to go in cycles, and it can be very draining, financially and emotionally both.
