Arrival Story:
My original owner left me and my brother Chester off at a vet clinic for boarding and never picked us up! Everyone at the vet was very nice. One of the vets sent an email out that my new daddy's mom received. My new mommy and daddy drove 18 hours to pick us up and bring us home with them in October 2005.

I am super independent and adventerous. Even though I am pretty small (only 6.5 pounds), I can get over the kitchen gate as if it weren't there. I love to explore on my own. I also like to curl up in my mommy's lap.

Final diagnosis

Well, we finally have gotten through all the tests. I have an atypical form of Cushings disease. I'm not real sure what all that means, but mommy does. She did a whole bunch of research and has posted it. The best that I can figure it means is that I get some bread twice a day now. Sometimes I have found some little white pills in them, but when I find them, I spit them out. But most of the time, I just enjoy the bread.

Mommy says I will be getting the bread and melatonin for a 90 day trial. At the end of the trial they are going to try and measure my water intake again to see if the bread is working. If it is, I will get to continue eating bread twice a day for the rest of my life. I'm really hoping it works, because I really like bread.


Good News!

Well mom got the test results back from the vet. I do not have a liver shunt or cushings disease. She is really happy about that. I am too! It means no more visits to the vet for blood draws!

The vet is now thinking something psychological is wrong with me. Maybe something happened that traumatized me before mommy and daddy picked me up. We have a few more tests to go through, but things are looking up!

Now if I can just find some more water! Lick, Lick, Lick


The Vet's Today

Today is another round of testing. I really don't understand why I have to keep going to the vet, but mommy and daddy are pretty insistent that I have to go. I just like to drink a lot of water and mommy says that is making me very hard to housetrain. Ah well! Today I was a little annoyed with mommy and daddy because I didn't get any breakfast. And no treats either. Mommy promised I would have a big dinner and lots of hugs tonight, so I guess I will be OK for one day.

I actually like everyone at the vets. They are very nice and give me lots of attention. They also let me be in the quiet room instead of the room with all the big, barking dogs which makes me a little less nervous. Mommy is hoping we will know what is wrong with me after this round of tests.

I'll keep posting it here!
