The lights went out for me in November, and no-one bothered to turn them back on. I was really getting good at finding my way around in the dark, and then Sunday, May 20, 2007, I started having these really bad episodes that my mommy said were seizures. All I knew was my head really hurt afterwards and all I wanted to do was sleep. My wonderful doctor called in an anti-convulsant and and anti-inflamatory (one made me even more sleepy, the other didn't seem to do anything). On Monday I went to visit him at the clinic and he ran my bloodwork to rule out everything except the dreaded PDE. Mommy had been in tears and hasn't slept at all. I couldn't stand to see her so sad, but I felt so lousy I can't even give her kisses. I fought, and on Wednesday I didn't have any seizures at all, but Thursday morning I woke up in one and they were coming every 2 hours or so. Mommy and Daddy cried and cried, but I'm o.k. now. They went and got my human sister out of school and took me for my last ride to see Dr. Yurko. He was so nice. As I was going to sleep, I gave Mommy and Daddy some kisses, but I was really getting sleepier than ever. Next thing I know, I'm hearing my brother Trouble and sister Ginger woofing for me to go across this beautiful bridge, I felt so good and could see again!!! Only problem was, my human family couldn't quit crying. Daddy never cries. Oh, something HAD to be done. I put the word out (I'd learned to be a "take charge" kinda girl right before I went blind, and found a retired breeder pug that needed a home badly. She looked enough like I would have if I'd gotten to 10 that I thought maybe, just maybe it might help Mommy and Daddy. The folks that were fostering her lived next door to our neighbors aunt. O.k., a little more work here, a few phone calls and four hours after my family finished putting my body out back, mommy and our neighbor were on the way to check out this new pug. Mommy quit crying constantly, at least. They decided to name her Joy. She needs them as much as they need her right now, and mommy has done so much good rescue work that she deserves to not have her heart broken. Joy has been instructed (by me, of course) in the ways of our home, she'll be expected to sleep in the bed, give kisses, eat the best of dog foods and cuddle a lot. Joy says she is just fine with that. Today, (the 25th) Mommy hasn't cried hardly at all (she has teared up some, but nothing like yesterday). I think I did pretty darned good for a 2 year old puggie! Bye all and I'll make sure that any other puggies that cross too soon get the grand tour over here. It IS BEAUTIFUL!!!

Mommy and Daddy are so sad, my brudder Trouble laid down this afternoon and when he tried to get up Mommy started crying. She laid over him and held him and then after a little be she went outside. After Daddy came home they wrapped him up his blankie and put him in a box and took him outside, but they wouldn't let me or Sissy GG go with them. I don't know where they took him, but they tell me he isn't coming back. I loved my brudder, he always left some of his dog food on the floor for me to clean up. He was warm to cuddle with too. I have to give Mommy and Daddy extra kisses now, they need me.

I feel GREAT!!! Mommy says I'm all full of it. I slept for a full 6 hours last night straight and boy when I woke up I had to go out side really bad, but I got to run around the orchard and got my belly all wet from the dew and it felt so good. I helped Mommy wash the windows in the kitchen this morning and then she washed the curtains but she said I wasn't helping much when it came to putting them back up. I was trying, really I was. Gotta go, I'm getting tired.
