The Universe Revolves Around Me

Crate rest yet again...

Hi everyone,

I have been relegated to crate rest yet again. The vet thinks that I have a bulge in my lumbarsacral disc. They are treating me cautiously with steroids to bring down the inflammation. Hopefully this will be effective and I will not require surgery (again! at least it's not my knee this time...). I am not presenting with terrible neurologic symptoms at this time. My parents were concerned when my tail started drooping and I started to refuse to go up and down the stairs. My regular vets thought I had a muscle spasm and put me on muscle relaxants and rimadyl. But to be safe they scheduled me with my surgeon. She took x-rays and spoke with the radiologist. That's where they think they see a possible narrowing of my disc space. I am a fighter though and I am sure I will be fine.

Please wish me well!
Licks and wags to you all,


In the clear so far!

So, four months ago I was diagnosed with oral mast cell tumors. They were removed and found to be Grade II (much to the relief of my humans.). The surgery left me with a crooked nose (pictures to come soon) but that's okay. I'm beautiful no matter what!

This past Monday I had my four-month follow-up appointment and got the all clear! Three cheers for me! If I'm all clear at nine months than I am considered cured!




Rollin' rollin' rollin'...

You should have seen the look on my mom's face yesterday! She was cleaning up after the horses and was so happy that I was "being a good girl" by sitting quietly on the porch. When her back was turned I smelled it. Deer droppings. The perfect thing to hide my scent with! (You see, I am trying to fulfill my goal of catching one of the barn cats unaware...) So I quietly stood up and creeped over to the prized spot on the lawn. I then flopped to my back and with reckless abandon rolled and rolled in the glorious scent of deer droppings! That was until mom turned around and saw me! She was absolutely livid. And my behavior resulted in a very thorough bath. But it was worth it. For one glorious moment I was that much closer to attaining my dream! I will sneak up on those cats one day...


Itching, chewing and licking...

I am soooo irritated. My head itches so badly! I've been scratching and scratching and now I have scabs on top of my head, at the base of my ears, and around my mouth and neck! And to make things worse my paws itch too! I lick and lick and it just doesn't go away. And now my paws are all irritated and pink. She tried an e-collar but I still managed to itch, chew and lick. My mom thinks I have allergies so she took me to the vet. The vet put me on lots of pills. I'm really sneaky though, I can spit out the gel-cap ones! It makes mom soooo upset when I don't take my pill the first time! Hehehe... I still scratch some but I'm much less itchy today. I hope I get better soon! If I don't the vet wants to do a skin biopsy and rule out autoimmune disorders. I am not interested in going under anesthesia! I hope I don't have too! Well, I'm going to take a nap on my new pillow-top mattress mom got me! Later! Woof!
