I have a big dog disease!

I always knew I was a big dog in a little dogs' body...and now I have a disease to back up that claim. I have EPI...or exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, which means my pancreas is shot. We don't know why; it's supposed to be hereditary. Normally it's found in German shepherd dogs, big guys like that. Anyhoo, no more treats and fun stuff for me unless it's got that enzyme on it or it just passes right through me. But the time that vet guy got my diagnosis, I had dropped to 4.8#, lost lots of fur, felt awful, looked even worse and I won't even tell you about my poop: ugh! I was eating and eating but starving to death while doing it. Now, I'm back up to a full 6#, growing fur back (even in spots it wasn't before) and am full of energy! I play with my sister Missy every day now, and my legs have not hurt me at all! Wow!

My Mom said all she wanted for Christmas was for me to be healthy...I think she got her wish! Yay!

It's good to be me!
