Arrival Story: Sophie was our new years baby. We were just supposed to be "looking". She was the runt of the litter and so cute - I just had to take her home right then and there.
Bio: Sophie is our fearless leader. She is the smallest of the 3 dogs but she doesn't let that stop her from bossing the 2 big boys around. Sophie was diagnosed as diabetic in October of 2008. Sadly Sophie was taken from us on October 4, 2011 from Pancreatic cancer. Rest in peace sweetpea - until we meet again.
My mom took me to the vet because I had a seizure. The Dr. took some of my blood & said that my blood sugar level was really low (40). I am scared because I met up with my long lost, biological sister/litter mate Maggie at the vet's last week and she was having gran mal seizures. I don't want to end up like her, that was very scary to watch.
This winter has been really rough. In December we got a record breaking 61.5 inches of snow. Mom normally lets us out of our schnauzer paddock and lets us run around in the BIG yard but now we can't. See my latest photo and you will see that we can't even get out of our gate.
I haven't been feeling like myself lately. My Dad took me to the vet & we found out I am diabetic. I have to have insulin shots twice a day. The vet also thinks that I may have cushings disease. They are running more tests to be sure. I have to go back to the vet soon for an all day blood glucose level check. I sure do hope that this helps me get back to feeling more like "me".
