Hi pals, as I barked in my last diary, I went to the vet a couple of weeks ago and got put on some medicine for my seizures. Well I had a seizure last Wednesday, Mom just happened to walk in the door when it started! She wasnt too upset cause she knew the medicine hadnt had time to build up in my system. Well she is always upset when it happens but she wasnt upset about the new meds. Well normally after a seizure I'm back to my old self in a few hours. The next couple of days mom knew I wasnt feeling good(you know Mom's just know these things!) and I was acting very lethargic and she noticed I was very bloated. She was really getting worried about me. She decided to take me to our vet Sat. morning. Well its walk in and when we got there about 10-15 pups were ahead of us. We were at the vet for 3.5 hours! We were the next to last pup to be seen. Our vet is so good though, he takes time with each animal.
I did have a little high fever but he listened to my heart and lungs and heard no fluid. He said this medicine can make me feel lethargic but should get better with time. He wasnt sure why I was bloated (I gained 2lbs in 2 weeks!!!) or why the fever. He ask mom if she wanted a detailed blood work done and she said yes. Well they did it right there so that took about an hour but it all came back normal!!! That made mom feel so much better!
The vet decided to give me a shot and sent me home with 2 meds to take, one for upper GI infections. He said if I didnt improve or kept gaining weight to call them or come back! I have to go back in about 6 weeks for blood work on this new medicne and that's when mom is having my teeth cleaned.
The shot did make me feel better, so much that mom took me and my fursibs to the hunting club and let us all run around on Sunday. I had a great time and kept up with the other 3! I was pretty tired that night but loved being outdoors and running free. I seem to be better but mom is a little concerned about the bloating. When she picked me up this morning she said I felt like a ton of bricks! She is going to weigh me tonight and make sure I havent gained more weight. The vet didnt want to put me on a water pill because of my seizures and this new medicine I'm on but if I keep gaining he will have to.
All my wonderfur pals in Furever Friends group sent me POTP and sent me nice wishes and I thank you furry much for those! It's nice to know that you can always count on dogster pals!
I promised my pals that knew I was sick I would bark about it in my diary and give them an update!
Well its time for a long nap while mom is at work and it's raining here, perfect sleeping weather!

Hi pups. My new furbro, Petey, had to get stitches out today so for some crazy reason Mom decided to take me! She said I was due for a check up. I got to ride in Buddy's booster seat and I love it. Mom said it's mine now! When we got there I was very nervous and didnt want to go in the door but mom made me. As soon as we got in there I decided to poop! Mom couldnt believe it but lucky no other pups were in the waiting room. I was very upset so Mom thinks I was having flash backs to when I had my back surgery and had to stay at the vet for 10 days, locked in a cage and wearing a cone! Mom kept telling me she wasnt leaving me but I just couldnt be too sure. I had a pretty good check up. Mom talked to the vet about my seizures. They are going to try potassium bromide because it's not as bad for your liver. Have any of you pups been on it, and if so, did it help? We tried this once before but it was the liquid form and mom couldnt get it down my throat and she wore more of it then I took so she finally gave up on it! The vet told her it came in "pill" form, which we didnt know, so we will try again. I'll eat almost anything!BOL
After I take it for 6-8 weeks I go back for blood work and to get my teeth cleaned! The Dr was more concerned with the tarter on my teeth because of the health problems it can cause, almost more than my seizures. So he wants to see if this helps my seizures and then they will clean my teeth.
Oh, Petey got his stitches out and is doing great!
Mom was talking about how much all her furkids have cost this past month. All 4 of us have been and its always $200 each time she goes! That's why she cant afford more pups and was concerned about taking Petey, but she did say we are all worth it. Unfortunately for her, all of our shots and check ups are all due around the same time and around Christmas. She said she might have to open a savings account for us to pay for our checkups each year!BOL
Mom was thinking about taking us to the dog park, since finally no pup has stitches and we are all up to date on our shots. The sun is shinning but the wind is pretty cold. She said we might go tomorrow cause she doesnt want to over do it for me. I did throw up when we got home, which she thinks was my nerves!
Mom said we all need exercise, but it's too much trying to walk 4 dogs at same time. She thinks if we go to dog park, she can just walk around the perimeter of the park and we will always follow her(we dont let her out of our sight) and maybe that would give us a little exercise. Since we are all different sizes, weights and have different health issues, that we could all walk at our own pace and stop if we need to. She said we will try it and see what happens. We dont play much with the other pups at the park so this would get us moving some!
Have a great weekend pups, we hear that some of you have snow...oh I wish it would snow here!

Wow I was DDP all day and mom just saw it!!! GRRRRRRR....
Thanks to all my pals that saw it and sent me Rosettes! You pups are the best! Mom was busy buying us Christmas gifts so I guess that's ok!
Well guess what???????????????????????????????????????????????
Mom and Daddy took Buddy and Petey on a ride tonight and they were talking about Petey (cause he was real scared in the car and they think maybe he thought they were getting rid of him :(
Well Daddy said, "Well if he's staying he has to be fixed next week and his shots up to date" and Mom said "What??? you mean we can keep him??? and Daddy said "I guess so!" Mom was so happy and kissing Peteys face and saying welcome to the family. Petey barked all of this to me when they got home! Mom is going to try and work on him a dogster page tomorrow!!! We want to show our new furbro off to the world!!! He sure does take a lot of mom's attention. All he wants to do is be held. Maybe he's just catching up on love he didnt have for 2 years so maybe he will relax a little later. I dont mind too much, but oh bey, Molly and Buddy get really jealous!!!!
Well more on him later. We'll let you know when his page is built and we hope you all will be his pal!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OUR PALS AND WE LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!
Woof Woof, Scoot Scoot and Petey Morris :)
