10 Years Together

Hi Friends,

This was a busy (not in a good way) year. Late July, mommy and I found out that I have idiopathic asymptomatic Hepatitis. I chipped my tooth, mommy found the tooth piece, took me to the vet, and my blood work showed increased liver (ALT) enzyme and poor liver function (bile acids). Three weeks of two Antibiotics and Ursodiol followed. I had to have my tummy shaved for an ultrasound, which was inconclusive.

I was on Cyclosporine for several months to reduce inflammation. It worked a little, but once I was taken off of the cyclosporine, the inflammation came back. I also had several bouts of diarrhea/colitis (common side effect). Now I am on Prednisone. I pee pee a lot and drink a lot(common side effect) but I remain asymptomatic and happy. Mommy takes me out ever 3 to 4 hours to go pee pee (even at night) - she is such a good mommy and I love her so much.

At the end of this month, I go for blood work to see if the Prednisone is working. Me and mommy are saying lots of prayers that my liver inflammation will resolve. Mommy says it was a miracle that she found my tooth fragment and discovered my hepatitis because I never showed any symptoms.


Ten years ago on April 3rd, mommy, grandma, Bubba, and me became a family.

I was about five months old. I was in a large cage when I saw mommy for the first time. The nice people at Helen Woodward Animal Center in San Diego, Ca. called me Sugar ‘cuz they said that I was very sweet.

Mommy called me over to her. When I came to her, and stuck my nose through the bars, she touched my nose. I kissed and nibbled her fingers. Then she was gone. I was sad. Why does everyone leave me all alone?

Soon the woman who feeds and plays with me opened my cage, put my leash on, and there was mommy. We walked for a while, and then I was back in my cage all alone again. Again, I was sad. What's wrong with me?

Next, I was taken to a room where I saw grandma and Bubba for the first time. Mommy was there too. I went over to play with Bubba. He was so big. He moved back when I jumped at him, wanting to play. I think that he was afraid of me ‘cuz I was so young and he was much older. Finally, he sniffed me with his cold nose and barked. After that, they took me away. I was sad again. Was I a bad girl?

The woman took me into another room (so many rooms that I didn't know about). She weighed me. I weighed 30 pounds. She looked at my tummy boo-boo. She called it a “spay”. She also brushed my hair, sprayed me with something smelly, and told me I was going home. What is a home?

Soon, I saw mommy, grandma, and Bubba. They were smiling at me. Mommy put a red collar and leash on me. She called me Hope. I was happy and wagged my tail.

We walked outside. Grandma held my leash tight and mommy held Bubba’s leash. I had never been outside the shelter before. I was so excited. I jumped on grandma and knocked her over in the grass.

Yes, I've always been a naughty girl. I felt so bad so I kissed her face. Mommy helped grandma up, and we went into mommy’s car. Bubba sat in the back, and grandma held me in her arms, while mommy drove us home. I was very happy.

Even though my grandma and big brother Bubba are in heaven, leaving just mommy and me, I’m still so happy that mommy, grandma, and Bubba chose me to join their family.

Please, adopt your next dog and/or cat from a shelter, the humane society, animal control, and/or the pound. They need homes too!

Love,

Hope, NPC

PS: All of mommy's babies (except sister Sarah) were adopted from a shelter. Mommy knows how much we need forever homes. Mommy found sister Sarah (approx. 3 months old) in 1981; she was tied, gagged, and thrown in a dumpster. Naughty naughty people.

Another Urinary Tract Infection

[ Leave A Comment ]

I have another urinary tract infection. This is my third in 8 years. Mommy took me to the doctor and now I am on antibiotics. It will cost mommy about 500 dollars when all is said and done. The doctor did not find any crystals or stones which is a good thing. I am starting to feel like my naughty self again. I feel great.

Mommy still does not have a job in would appreciate any positive thoughts and prayer sent her way.

Lastly my cousin Bauer had surgery for cancer (stage 1) last month.The doctor got it all and he is doing very very well.

I am so lucky to have such a wonderful mommy. My wish is for all pups and kitties to have wonderful mommies and/or daddies like mine.

Two years on Orijen 6 Fish Kibble

I am still a super pooper - not to big, not to small, not to soft, not to hard, not to dark, not to light, and not to smelly - just right!

I also had my yearly wellness exam and got my vaccines. I weighed 62ish pounds and I am very healthy.

Lastly, I got to ride (for the first time) in mommy's new car - the HopeMobile.

Love

I am a Super Pooper

I've been eating Orijen 6 Fish kibble twice a day for over a year now and my doodies have been GREAT! Not too loose, not too hard, not too little, and not too big - just right. My fur is also soft, thick, and shiny. My skin, gums, and teeth are healthy too. My mind is active and I'm always thinking of naughty things to do. I'm so happy, just look at my new picture. I love my mommy for taking such good care of me.
