Lotta you pups out there is also pals with my pal Doo. And as most of you's knows, Doo been sufferin' from a limpity-limp. Anywho, Doo has been going to see my 'holy-vet Dr. Williams (she treated me when I hurts me back). I'd been 'wunnering how my pal was cause we's hasn't seen no update in her diary 'bout her condition so's I had Mommy send her a paw-mail for me. Below is her response. I's posting it cause I's knows there are 'utter inquiring minds like me who wanna know how 'Doo is dooing' (BOL!):
Hi Ebby...I'm better but not completely yet. Last week Dr. Williams gave me some Myrrh (yep, just like one of the 3 kings brought Jesus) for pain and I'm supposedly supposed to work my way up to 3 pills 3 times a day. Right now, I'm on 2 pills 3 times a day. I have good days where I barely limp at all and bad days where I limp real bad. They also refilled my anti-inflammatory meds so that that once a day too. Mom bought me a harness which we used for the first time today (I guess its ok) and also bought me an elevated food bowl which I don't like at all. The bowls rattle around and make lots of noise while I'm trying to eat from them and mom says I kinda stand back from it rather than get up close to it. She also noticed I take the food out and put it on the floor to eat. So much for that...mom said that's defeating the purpose. So, I haven't used it again.
Dr. Williams asked mom if she wanted to continue the once a week visits or stretch them out to every 10-14 days. Dr. W. said she didn't have a problem seeing me weekly or every 2 weeks, it was up to mom. Mom said since I'm not as healed as she would like me to be she would prefer to just continue with the weekly visits for awhile longer. Dr. W said its going to take some time for me to "get back to normal", so we've got all the time in the world. Mom asked if maybe they should do surgery on my back and she said she didn't think that that would do anything for it. So we'll try a little longer and see how much I can progress.
Thanks fur the pup-date, Ebby!
POTP to Doo!
I sure hope that soon there will only be good days!
Thanks for letting us know how Miss Doo is doing!

We've been wondering as well. Thanks for keeping us posted. POTP to Doo and family.
This is heading toward good news ! Sometimes.. its just time to heal things... I know Flicka it took over 6 months.
So glad Doo is doing better !
Thank you Ebby for letting us know how DOO is doing. You're such a good pal.
Fanks, Ebby, fur da Doo pupdate! I hope fings continue tu impwoobe fur hur ♥
Thanks Ebby for sharing. I hope Doo is dooing way better real soon.
Aww Miss Ebby, you made me blush. I didn't know you would write a whole diary entry about me. :) That was so sweet of you. Thank you to all my pals who sent well wishes. I hadn't posted in my diary cause I didn't know if pupses and their moms got tired of me saying the same thing over and over..."still the same, not a bunch of progress". Mom said I was SUPER BAD tonight. She went and took a shower and when she was done and she came into the living room I wasn't there, so she went and looked in the bedroom and sure enough there I was on the big high bed. She was SOO not a happy camper. She made me get down right then and there. Wellll, thats what she gets for not blocking off the bedroom. She thinks she doesn't have to do it all the time (and she does 99% of the time) but its just that 1% that she doesn't block it off and I just sneek right in there and jump on the comfy bed (twice now since we've given up the bedroom). I'm tired of sleeping in the living room (its been 2 1/2 months already) and I want to go back to our bed. (Pals have suggested stairs, but mom thinks I'll only use them to go up and then jump down like normal in the morning, so she thinks its just easier for us to sleep in the living room. BOOO!)
Thank you all again for being concerned and wondering how I've been. I'll try to do better and do updates more often. :) Love you ALL! ~Doo
Doo, your momma is correct about the stairs. I'm not supposed to jump up or down from anything so she thought having the stairs up to the daybed would allow me access to it, and she was right, but when it comes time to get down I always jump down instead of using the stairs - BOL, BOL
thank you for the update Ebbers!! We are always thinking of our pal Doo too and hoping that she is getting better!! Hang in there Doo
Lets all pray for Doo to get better, thanks Ebby for keeping us updated. Hope everyfur is doing good and staying healthy and happy. Happy Memorial day to all of you!!! Love, Bumble...... Im sad that dogster doesnt have any Memorial Day zealies to send to friends:( Whats up with that??????
Hi Officer Bumble, great to hear from you too!! Hope all is well with you all and have a good Memorial Day weekend!! i know there should be some kind of flags or something in the store...huh!!!

Glad Doo is getting better!
