This is Buttercups mommy and we are so sad to say that our dear sweet Canteloupe left us for the bridge today. She would have been 18 next month and lived a very good long life .. but it never easy to say goodbye to such a dear , dear furiend ! Since we last wrote she did manage to settle back into a fairly good routine of eating and sleeping ..but a few days ago she came down with vestibular disease .. she was blind and with the vestibular everything became a HUGE challenge for her, even eating.. It was her time to run free and not suffer anymore. Dear sweet angel LOPEY we miss you and will love you forever !

Run Free until we meet again .. we love you forever !,
Grandma Pat & Buttercup

HI EVERYONE .. THIS IS BUTTERCUPS MOMMY .. CANTALOUPE COULD USE SOME PRAYERS .. SHE WILL BE 18 IN JUNE.. AND THE PROCESS OF AGING IS REALLY TAKING A TOLE ON HER AND HER MOMMY AND DADDY. SHE WENT BLIND OVER A YEAR AGO AND IT IS REALLY GETTING HARD FOR EVERYONE. MOMMY AND DADDY HAVE BEEN SLEEPING ON THE FLOOR WITH HER FOR OVER A YEAR .. THEY HAVE TOTALLY TRANSFORMED THEIR HOME AND THEIR LIVES AND JOBS TO BE ABLE TO CARE FOR HER. THE PAST WEEK SHE HAS HAD THEM UP AROUND THE CLOCK EVERY 2 HOURS JUST CRYING AND SEEMS NO WAY TO GET HER TO SETTLE DOWN. THEY HAVE HAD HER TO THE VETS AND ALL TEST SEEM TO BE FINE .. THEY THINK SOMETHING MAY BE GOING ON MENTALLY. WE THINK HER TIME TO CROSS THE BRIDGE MAY BE GETTING CLOSE AS THEY CAN'T LET HER SUFFER LIKE THIS .. WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED AS WE ALL KNOW WHAT A TOUGH DECISION THIS IS .. WE PRAY SHE TAKES A TURN FOR THE GOOD AND WILL SETTLE BACK INTO HER ROUTINE OF EATING AND SLEEPING WELL.. BUT IF YOU HAVE ANY PRAYERS TO SHARE .. PLEASE THINK OF * LOPEY*

THANKS,
PAT & BUTTERCUP

First of all we must Thank Duffy McDuff.,Bailey and Harley Davidson & Sophie Claire for the POTP rosettes.. I think it truly helped .. I was much better this morning ,I even let mom and dad trim my face , which i truly hate having done and off to the vet we went... My weight was up 1/2 of a pound ..mom and dad told the doctor about my peeing problems so the doctor took blood and they are testing for thyroid, diabetes,kidney and bladder issues and she said i could possibly have cushings disease...we will have results tomorrow .. and i will be back to let you all know .. If everything comes back ok for my 17.5 years of age.. than i will start the first part of the cushing disease test .. please keep the prayers coming .. this old gal sure can use them !

Kisses,
Lopey !

 

Can you share a few prayers 9/29/2011

Its been a while since my grandma * Buttercups mommy* wrote in my diary.. so she decided to give a quick update.. I'm really getting frail and am showing my age.. i continue with my eye issues and can't see , i get carried in and out for potty time as my legs are starting to fail me also . I have a good appetite , but things scary me from time to time . I am going to the vet today for a check- up .. mom and dad think maybe i have cushings disease as i am drinking none stop and peeing a ton .. so maybe the vet will do test or maybe they will have another suggestion. I just know i am so thankful that Daddy and Mommy can work from home so someone is with me all the time. Mom and dad went to play golf the other day and i had a very tuff time until they came home.. i think maybe they just can't leave me for to long anymore . If you can include me in your prayers .. i think i could use a few , i know the POTP is very powerful !

Kisses,
Cantaloupe aka. Lopey !

 

ADOPT 2011 CONTEST STROLL

May 14th 2011 4:21 pm

This is my first ever diary entry and my first contest . My fur cousin ,Buttercup's secretary decided to enter me .. now that i am a special needs/ senior fur baby ! My forever family adopted me a very long time ago as i am now 15 years old . I have lived a very good long life but this past year has been a rough road. I have gone blind and deaf and no longer have much control of my bladder. The tissue on my eyes is very fragile and even when i just rub my face with my paw the tissue tares ..i have had to have repeated surgeries on my eyes and my mom and dad have to put 7 different eye drops between my two eyes three times a day at 30 minute increments apart. Thank goodness Dad works from home and mom does some days.. so they are able to keep up my needy schedule.( calculate the time it takes to do that ) I am very good and tolerant also !!! Since i can no longer jump up and being up on a bed or sofa makes me nervous the have converted their guest room into a room just for me and my fur sister Lilly who is a senior herself with back issues . They put the queen size mattress on the floor , moved the TV in ,extended the internet service, and dads office is just across the hall so he has one eye on me at all times. Mom and Dads back are suffering but they say its OK ..I still have a great appetite and get carried in and out for potty breaks, but mom and dad are pretty confined to taking care of me and my sister. I couldn't have found a more loving caring home especially in my old age . Mom or Dad never complain because Lilly and I are their children and this is what loving pawrents do... RIGHT !!!!! Good Luck to all that entered... but i say Thank Dogness my family adopted me !

Love to my Mom and Dad,
Cantaloupe aka.. LOPEY !
