2nd puppy hood and doggy alzheimers bliss or ???

Balto barely survived a recent bacterial infection in his (cant remember what it was called) and it was caused by a disease. All possible diseases were blood screened for and narrowed down to nothing!?!? Even the vet wasn't able to figure it out. The odds were against him, people whom never met him via Facebook friends and didn't really know him were condemning him to death aka be put down, even the local vets in the area that were not his primary vet just because of his age and only that. I NEVER gave up on him and stood my ground about it and he in return did the same. The vet still feels he has a great quality of life to him and I am totally in agreement. The unfortunate part was that it was contagious and it spread to Lady Lucke 2 and North Star 2 (SDit) and my mom's chiweenie, snickers. It was very much touch n go for a while there w/ 4 dogs in quarantine at the house. North Star only got a touch of it and Lady took a bit longer and so did Snickers. Balto is usually slow to recover anyway but this time he barely pulled thru. My mom doesn't know what it was that I did but, obviously Balto has made it very clear ,he is not ready to go to heaven just yet. Once he fully did make a good recovery, he went into his 2nd puppy hood and played with his plushy squeakie, which he has not done this in over 5 years now. He also has been recently diagnosed this past summer w/ Advanced Age Related Nuclear Sclerosis of the eyes and Advanced Doggy Alzheimers. So we are dealing w/ most days of 2nd puppy hood adventures and others occasionally ditzball forgetfulness aka Alzheimers.

I fell down the stairs at the county court house on march 28th and I am no longer legally a "baker-zimmer" thru mama's marriage to a bad man. I also dont know what I was doing on march 31st during grocery shopping with mama and aunti. Mama said I was doing things I normally dont do when I have a seizure but, the vet says its time. Mama has a layaway payment with my dr doghealth to get me special "geriatric" bld test so mama have me on stupid pills. I wont take those things, nor keep em down no matter how mama does it. yes, I am a stink pot and they make me help mama save my life. I'd rather die that take them pills when I get them. :P



(This is balto's mama. My vet and I r thinking about other methods like eye drops or a type of vaccine to get him his life saving medicine, maybe even an eatible pill w/o all of his food allergies.)

Mommy's friend came thru w/ the money to help like promised but, the place that we were supposed to get into lied and told us to come back after the New Year to move in. :I DOGGONIT ANYWAY!! We have been looking since my ex-daddy kicked us out for another mate in August and nothing seems to be available, especially in mommy's budget/price range for rent and damage deposit. So I guess this means we keep looking or wait till after the New Year and check back w/ that landlord. Mommy gets SSI so she already has a very strict and tight budget as it is. She needs something $300.00 or less for Damage and either half off 1st mos rent or 1st mos rent FREE (preferably) and the rent can go up to $500.00 per month but, (preferably) under $450.00 per month. Good thing for SNAP as they help pay the electric bill in the winter mos. Avista does have a Budget Billing service for the low income, too which also helps as well. Power isn't the main concern for mommy, its the rent and damage deposit as well as the landlord paying for the W/S/G too.

Kaci was going to be adopted by the foster parents, (who never really wanted her anyway.) They took mommy's rights away w/out saying or doing anything!! The foster parents filed a motion to adopte her w/out telling mommy in October of 2011. NOW THEY DONT WANT HER AT ALL AND HER TRYING TO SALE HER TO SOME COUPLE OVERSEAS, ILLEGALLY!! THEY DONT WANT HER BECAUSE THEY ARE STILL HAVING DIFFICULTIES IN POTTY TRAINING, SERVERE SPEECH IMPEDIMENT, AND A DAYCARE ISSUE W/ CPS??? Mommy was told to get an attorney if she wants to save Kaci!! They are BLACK MARKETING HER AGAINST COURT ORDERS!! MY HUMAN SISSY ISNT ALLOWED TO MOVE OUT OF STATE W/ W/O THE FOSTER PARENTS TILL SHE IS 18 YRS OLD. ITS COURT ORDERED FOR MOMMY TO HAVE VISITS W/ HER AND NOW MOMMY HAS A RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST HER AND LEGALLY ACCORDING TO CASEWORKER THE FOSTER MOM DOSENT HAVE TO SERVE IT ON MOMMY OR EVEN TELL HER WHY. MOMMY HASNT SEEN KACI SINCE MOTHER DAYS OF 2011!! HELP PLZ HELP!!! MOMMY KEEPS WANTING TO GO AFTER HER BUT, WE DONT KNOW WHAT COUNTRY, OR IF SHE IS LEAVING BY PLANE OR BOAT!!

Mommy has a new mate, Branden. I really like him, he is very nice, gentle, kind and ALOT like my very 1st daddy, (my middle name is Wayne). So many similarities and things in common w/ him, etc. Very mild mannered, dosent get too stressed or upset over ALOT and dearly RESPECTS mommy. :) Mommy happy and so am I. Christian and read the Bible occaisonally, (which shouldnt really matter) to some it does.
