Kitties! Bowie wants to play with every cat she meets - claws and all. She currently has three kitties of her own and loves them all, but is willing to adopt any neighbor cat who would like to play.

Anyone who rings my doorbell. Clipping nails is right up there on the list too! Actually, she has a lot of pet peeves...the vaccuum, brooms, mops, the spin cycle on the washer, anything that buzzes or beeps, etc.

Favorite Toy:
Bowie's favorite toy is anything that makes an annoying noise - squeeks, buzzes, talks...

Favorite Food:
French fries from In-N-Out. Cheese is a close second. Then again, any people food will do nicely!

Favorite Walk:
Bowie's favorite walk is anywhere that has grass. She loves to run in the grass and let it tickle her little tummy.

Best Tricks:
Turning into a statue and refusing to move a muscle when you put a costume or clothing on her. She makes a great model.

Arrival Story:
Bowie is originally from a puppy mill and was very sick as a puppy. She spent the first 6 months of her life in vet hospitals and on various medications. She was a teeny tiny little puppy with a huge spirit and she never acted sick or depressed. We went to six different veterinarians before she was properly diagnosed and treated, but she never gave up. She is the most pampered pet in our household and can pretty much get away with anything...well, almost.

Like all dachshunds, Bowie thinks she's a big dog. She's 10 pounds of terror and my postman calls her Cujo. She's very shy when out in public, but would defend her home from anyone. She barks like crazy when a stranger comes to the door, and if they come inside we have to close her in the bedroom - she's the perfect home alarm.

Forums Motto:
Laughter is the Best Medicine

Bowie Facts:
Her eye color is real and she is not blind in the blue eye. Her blue eye is not fake.She's a mix of long-haired and short-haired mini dachshund. Sort of a purebred mutt. Her name is pronounced "Bowie", like David Bowie.

...more than anything in the world. I hope you're doing well and are as happy as I remember. I would give my right arm to have you with me again. Stupid divorce >.


Pooping like a normal dog again!

Yippee! Bowie seems to be back to normal in the GI department. We had some odd test results, so there will be xrays next weekend to double-check that nothing nasty is growing inside her. Cross all paws for her, and thanks again to all of my wonderful friends! XOXO


Still no food, vet tomorrow at noon

I's been 36 hours and she still has very runny diarrhea that is brown. She'd been drinking water every four hours or so with a bit of chicken broth in it to get her fluids. She is also still getting the Famotidine twice a day, 2.5 mg, which is what the vet sent us home with last time this happened. I'm wondering if I need to wait until the diarrhea is completely gone, or can I start feeding her some bland foods now? She is back to her old normal self, attitude-wise, but not digestion-wise :(
