This time last week we were so worried, it is not that we think we are all going to be fine because we don't know yet. However things are looking up.
Penny is playful, loving and alert. She is loving this snow and it was such fun to see here bouncing in and out of the deep drifts from the 30 inches we got here.
Its snowing again today and I think she wants to go and clear more of it.
The reason for this diary was that Lyme is a very strange condition that has (it seems) no rules. Every case it seems is different. It will be a few more weeks before we know what effect the Medication has had for the long term.
But I hoped this would give some guide and hope if you have a puppy that is this unlucky enough to get Lyme. They say it takes between 2-5 Months for symptoms to show, as Penny is 6 month this means that for a large part of her life she has been fighting this disease.
This being said I will carry this on, (in case anyone ever reads it) so many entries will be more about the life a wonderful Puppy and of course the results from the vet.
There will be no entries at weekends unless it is urgent as I work 14 hour shifts, and Penny gets to play with dad!
Oh what has she found out there in the snow now that she is throwing around. The last time she was finding things in the snow it turned out to be my reading glasses. She seems to have a pact with our Coon cat, he knocks things on the floor and she hides them. I am sure they both sit and laugh as we people spend many hours looking for items and wondering if we have early dementia.

bad side effects, young Penny.

Thank you I am feeling better, but we will know better when we got to the Vet........ I like the vet, I give him licks and he gives me great treats, he thinks I am sweet.........oh its like taking treats from a vet..........That's my version of the peoples saying "its like taking Candy from a baby" I don't think you should give babies candy and if you did you should not take it away.......TUT But vets and treats, yeah let the games begin.
