It was a gray day and I did not want to get out of bed. I was real bad. Daddy took me out for a walk at 4:30am but I just wanted to sniff everything. Boy was he mad. Mommy woke me up at 10am with breakfast in bed. MMMMMM Waffles MMMMMM. I just wanted to go back to be but mommy insisted I put on my sweater. It's a little cool, today. Mommy did want me to chatter anymore. It sounds funny when I chatter my teeth. Mommy had to go out for a while and the extra sleep really helped. Mommy came home and I was ready for a walk - ha ha run. I still fast for an old girl. I just wanted to run around and be a dog. I begged her for some of her French fries she can resist the puppy face. MMM French fries... And now I'm ready for a nap. I can't wait for daddy to come home than I get another walk. I like to sniffy.

Today's my birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!! I am 14 today. I feel great even thou it snowed, yesterday. WOW!!!!! That was some snow storm. We lost power at 3:30pm and did not get it back until 2:00am. I was so cold even with my sweater on and snuggling on my bed with a blanket. How cold was it? It was so cold my teeth were chattering. Mommy says I sound funny when I chatter. But it got nice and warm when the power came back on. MMMMMM warmmmmm. I so sad they had to postpone my birthday party, yesterday but we will have it next week. My parties theme is the Little Mermaid. I get to have my own cake and steak for my birthday. I usually have lamb and rice for dinner. I think that is why I am so healthy at 14. I have to take Dermamaxx for my arthritis and needed a blood test to make sure my liver and kidneys are not affected. The doctor called yesterday and said I am doing great.!!!! All my blood work came back great for an older dog and if any dog at any age. Mommy and daddy are so happy I am doing so well. They love me so much and give me kisses all the time. I guess it is going to be a lazy day but next week we PARTY!!!!

I was so exited!!! We finally celebrated my 14th birthday on Sunday. The theme was Little Mermaid and my Grandma, Grandpa and Uncle John came to the party. I had steak and cake. The guest brought me presents. MMMMMM!!!! 3 different kinds of treats. Mommy made me a Mermaid cake. It was so pretty and mmmmmm good. I round around like I was a puppy. Mommy said I sound like a herd of elephants when I was running around the living room. I was having so much fun I did not want to go outside and do my dodo. I also went under the dining room table but mommy grabbed me and put me outside just in time. I just did not want to miss anything. What a good time I had at my party. We told a family picture, too. My uncle John had to take lots of picture because, I kept looking around at what was happening but finally got one good one. He has to practice more he cut off daddy's head in one of the pictures. Thanks mommy and daddy for a wonderful 14th Birthday Party.

 

What a bad day

April 8, 2012 – It is a nice day and mommy went for a long walk. Daddy came home and asked me if I wanted to find mommy. We walk and walk and finally caught up with mommy. This was a pretty long walk for me and I am tired. We were only a half a block away from home and I don’t know why I just can stand up. I just keep falling down. What the heck is wrong with me? Daddy picks me up and I fell down again. A few minutes passed and I feel better now and can walk again without falling down. I can’t wait to get home. I feel OK the rest of the night.
April 09, 2012 – I sleep next to mommy most of the day. She had back surgery and rest a lot. Dad came home and I have dinner. I eat everything. We went for a walk so I can go peepee. Look I see another dog. I have to project mommy and daddy so I start barking at the another dog and all of a son I can stand up. I just keep falling down. I feel so dizzy and the world is spinning so fast. Daddy picks me up and I still can’t stand up. What the matter with me? We go into the house and I feel wobbly. I jump up on mommy because, I do not feel well and I fall down on the floor. Mommy get up- set and starts to get dressed to go out. Please, don’t leave me alone I’m scared. I make my way on to the couch and try to sleep but my world is spinning. I can’t see anything but the ceiling. My eyes are affixed to the ceiling and I can’t move them. I feel real sick. Daddy picks me up and brings me to the car. No! No! – Not the car. Mommy drives the car. Where are we going? Daddy holds me and watches me. Oh No!!!! I really sick now and I start to throw-up. Daddy quickly gets a towel and I throw-up in it. Oh no! Not again I throw-up again and again. I am very sick now. Mommy comes and hugs me. Daddy carries me in to the animal emergency room and a lady comes out and rushes me in the back. Mommy, mommy where are you I am so scared. Don’t leave me please don’t leave me. They tell mommy and dad I either have Vestibular, an inner ear infection or a brain tumor. They want to do a MRI to find out but mommy asks how would you treat the inner ear infection or Vestibular? Vet says antibiotic and Meclizine. Mommy and daddy decided to go with the treatment and see how I do because; I am too old and may not make it through an MRI. They handed me to daddy. They gave me some good drugs and I am calm now but I am very out of it. He takes me to the car and I begin to sway back and forth uncontrollable. What going on? The vets are taking a long time to get my medication. I just want to go home and rest in my bed. Than daddy leaves me in the car and tells mommy that I am real bad and how are we going to take care of me. Mommy just had two back surgeries and can lift me. Mommy goes back to the vet and asks it I will be alright. She says yes but you can’t account for something else going wrong. Mommy tells the vet she cannot take care of me and just had surgery. The vet was surprised and said we could leave me at the hospital until I get better. Mommy and daddy are relieved I will be taking care of so closely. Mommy crying and does not want to leave me but she know they can take better care of me. Now we just have to wait and see if I come out of it or not. I feel like I have human vertigo.

 

What a bad day continues

April 10, 2012 – The vet calls mommy in the morning and say I am not better and a little worst then I was yesterday but sometimes that happen and it is too early to tell if I will get better. Mommy comes to see me in the afternoon and upset that they wheel me in a stretcher. I am still real sick and still swaying back and forth. I can’t see mommy because, my eyes just keep going back and forth uncontrollably but she smells like mommy. She cries and tells me to fight and get better. Later in the evening mommy and daddy come to see me and tried to cheer me up and let me know they did not leave me. I still real bad. My eyes are now sifting back and for the not affixed to the ceiling now. Daddy looks real upset now.
April 11, 2012 – Vet calls and says she sees a little Improvement but I am not eating. Mommy come and brings me my favorite treat – Pup Corn. I just don’t want it. Mommy upset I can’t eat even Pup Corn. Mommy and daddy come again in the evening. Mommy learned to lay on the floor with me and give me kisses. I missed her kisses.
Thur April 12 2012 – Vet called and says I am doing much better but still does not want to eat. Mommy comes and this time she brings me chicken. MMMMMM I love chicken and I eat only a little but I did eat some of it. They wheel me in on a rolling lower cart this time. So I can get off it myself. I am able to get off it myself now but still real shaky. Mommy seems happier, when I try to get out of the room by myself. Mommy and daddy come again in the evening and daddy give me chicken I eat a little more than before. I can stand for a little while now. I’m starting to feel better now.
April 13, 2012 – Friday the 13th not usually a lucky day. Vet calls mommy and tells I am doing real good now and eating, too. Mommy comes to see me in the afternoon and to her surprise I walk in the room all by myself. Now she is crying with joy. She gives me some more chicken and Pup Corn. I am feeling much better now. Daddy and mommy come again in the evening and bring more chicken. I fell good now and I just want to go home. Oh my soft orthopedic bed. I can’t wait. One of the tec ‘s come in and says hi to me and I start barking at her. I have to protect my mommy. That’s my job. They say I guess she feels real good now and maybe I can go home tomorrow.
April 14, 2012- Vet calls mommy and says I can go home today. Mommy and daddy come and get my medication and we go HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy to go home. AHHHHH!!! My bed. I missed you so much. Our little family is back together again.
April 25th – I go back to my vet and she says I doing real good. No need for more medication. I made a full recovery.

May 9, 2012 – I am start to feel sick again and have some of the same symptoms 2 1/2 weeks later after I am off the antibiotics – I start walking sideways but no rapid eye movement and displaying other symptoms. Mommy and daddy bring me back to the EM vet again and I get more Baytril and Meclizine
for two more weeks. After two weeks I feel good again.

May 31, 2012 – I feel sick again. I am starting same symptoms again – my head tilt now but no rapid eye, yet. This time mommy and daddy bring me to my regular vet and he say we should just keep her comfortable and take care of her. He did not want to do anything for me. He thinks I have a brain tumor and that it. But mommy comes to my rescue and convinces him to give me stronger antibiotic (Zeniquin 200mg) for two more weeks.
June 20, 2012 – I go back to my regular vet for Wellness check and Bordetella shot. WOW is the vet surprise I am doing so good. He said “I surprised.” “Oh! Pleasantly surprise”. No you mean surprised I still alive and doing well. I guess you were wrong.
July1, 2012 - I starts behaving like before when I had Vestibular. Hard of hearing, stumbling, sliding down on smooth floor and can't get up, pooping in house, restless at night, after sliding or falling down

 

And so it continues

and can't get up, after sleeping awhile hard to get up and looks like she's drunk. Not sleeping at night. Failing down and not able to get up. Flails to get up/flops around like a fish out of water, she scratching, shaking or rubbing her head more than before. She has lack of coordination back end falls over, Stands still and falls over and constantly rolling over when falling. Mommy thinks I could have a bad inner ear infection or brain abscess that's not going away. Because, all my symptoms go away after being on antibiotic and return within two to three weeks. Back to Em vet and two more weeks Of Baytril and Meclizine.
July 17th to Aug 17th- I am doing OK for a few weeks but now I am having symptoms again and I can’t hear now. I think I am deaf. I miss the sweet sound of “you want cookies” but I still get them.
Aug 18, 2012 – Oh no sick again and back to ER vet again. This time the vet gave us Baytril again and 2 refills.
Aug 31, 2012 – I just cannot shake whatever is wrong with me. I take another two weeks of Baytril. Feel great when I am on them but sick when I do not have them.
Sept 13, 2012 – I just can shake whatever is wrong with me and do another two weeks of Baytril.
Sept 23, 2012 – I am real sick again and back to EM vet. This time my Eyes started shifting back and forth. Can stand up. Mommies tell vet that she read that sometime it takes 6 weeks of antibiotics may throw it. The vet had two critical patents and did not read my file. So right or wrong she agrees to give 6 more weeks of antibiotic. Mommy real scare and so am I. If this 6 weeks does t does it what will we do next. I can’t with stand a surgery. I pray this time it will clear up my problem.

Oct 9, 2012 – I feel good. Mommy took me for a walk in the morning and I saw this big animal. What could it be? Maybe, it is a deer. Mommy started stomping and clapping her hands but it did not run away. I got in my stealth mode and stared him down. Our eyes locked and then the big animal started walking towards me and then quietly (no barking) sprung up to attack and he ran away like a sissy. Mommy so happy I can do my job and protect her. She gave me bacon treat this time. I guess I did a real good job.
Oct 10th and 11th2012 – Feel good and I doing better. My legs feel stronger and I can get up better. I hate it when I fall into my water bowl.
Oct 12, 2012 – I feel good but who are all these people outside in my yard. What are they doing? Crap who took my tree? Where did it go? Well at least they did not take my telephone pole. Need to sniff something interesting. No wait what’s this new white stick next to my telephone pole. They better not take my telephone pole, too.
Oct 13, 2012 – Mommy spent most of the day with me and helped me on the couch. I feel pretty good. It feels a little cold for me. I am chattering s so mommy put on my coat. It was nice to look out the door and bark at people and nothing. Mommy still gives me cookies if I bark at strangers. I still remember the time I was barking and barking and barking and they never came to see why I was barking. I saw these two strangers running through the yard. Daddy found out later those two strangers robbed a house a few streets over. That will teach them not see why I am barking.
Oct 14, 2012 – Mommy and daddy went out most of the day and I slept. They can home and we had dinner. I finally got it. If I don’t eat my food when they are eating they will give me some of their food and I still have my food. . Ha Ha!!! I still have it and I can still trick them. MMMMM I love steak
