I'm a summer gal

We have definitely marched into March like a lion, but I'm ready for the lamb. I'm getting too old for all this snow! Mom added a couple pictures today of me in the snow. See how horrible it is with all that whiteness just pouring down. They are forcasting 12-22" of this stuff! In the summer, I love to lay out on the deck and soak in some sun! Ahhhhhh, I can't wait for warmer weather. For now I'll just dream of those glorious summer days and nights on the deck with my mom.


My vet visit

My mom has been very upset today and crying because the vet told her today that my heart disease has dramatically taken a change for the worse. I told her not to cry, I'm a big girl and I will be brave. I'm always taking care of mom, so I hope the doctor will give her better news tomorrow when she calls back. She's going to consult with a cardiologist and go over my bloodwork to see where to go from there. Wish me luck


I'm on meds

The doctors have me on two heart meds right now to help with my breathing. One eases the work load of my heart and the other helps remove fluid from my lungs. Mom hopes this will help me become comfortable. One good thing was my blood work was pretty darned good for my age and they were able to give these meds a try. Hug your pet today, for me!


Thank You Cookie

Would you please vote for me?

Hi cyber pups! I'm in a photo contest and could use all the help I can get! The prize is a Gift Certificate for Petsmart and I'm donating it to Katann Chow rescue located in MN if I should be the winner. I have always been in a loving home, but there are Chows out there that aren't as lucky as I have been. I am blessed to have had a forever home for my entire life and mom says she has been equally blessed. My contest runs from April 2, 2007 through the end of the month. Please visit and cast a vote for me. Here is the link for you to copy and paste. Thanks again and please continue to keep good thoughts for me as I'm still not feeling well. I see the vet again on Monday (the same day the voting starts) :)


Hanging in there

I'm stable for now so the vet adjusted my heart medications. She wants to try to minimize the risk of damaging my kidneys. I'm now on heart meds twice a day and lasix every other day. I go back to the vet yet again next week for more blood work and x-rays. I love my vet but this is getting out of control. I know they are all just trying to help though. If next weeks visit goes well, maybe I'll get a month or so off. My photo contest is going well. Please keep voting for me! Mom is donating my prize to Chow Rescue and then taking me to McDonalds for a treat! I got a double Cheesburger after my vet visit on Wednesday! I guess there is some benefit to all these office visits. Thanks! Here is my contest link.


Contest over :(

My photo contest has ended early for me. Toby and I were disqualified. Terry's is donating a $5.00 GC to Katann Chow Rescue in my name though and some of my friends have also donated to help my cause. I just wanted to raise awareness for rescue and give a little in the process. Thank you to everyone who voted for me. It meant so much to me. I may be old, but I know love when I feel it.


Still hanging in there

I haven't updated for awhile, but Im still hanging in there!

I'm not enjoying the heat, but the humom has the air on and fans to keep me cool. I'm still on my heart meds and the lasix. I was off the lasix for awhile, but now I have to stay on it daily. The vet wanted me to try every other day, but I quickly started having problems breathing again and had to go back on daily. I'm finally getting my appetite back and that makes me feel better. I want to be strong for my humans and be with them for as long as I can. Just like everyone, I have my good days and my bad days. I'm feeling OK today and the teperature is cooler today. The cooler days are much appreciated.

Feel free to keep my in your doggie thoughts and prayers.



It's one of those days

I don't know if it's been the heat or the humidity, but it just isn't my day. Yesterday I started to feel a little off and had a lot of trouble getting comfortable. The Dogtor said the humom could increase my daily lasix so that is what we are trying right now. If it doesn't help she said I can increase it even more. The meds are damaging to my kidneys, but the alternative is to suffer with labored breathing. I've been thinking to myself that it's really rough getting old. I'm always tired and don't hear very well. My bones ache and I live with a couple young whipper snappers, but I've been around the block and I feel the love of my family. I've been so fortunate to be loved by the same family my whole life. The rest of my furfamily can't say that. I'm counting my blessing and I'm trying my hardest to fight this darned CHF once again. I've been given lots of support and have powerful doggie prayers helping me get through this. Thanks everyone! I'd also like to say thanks for the lovely rosettes and even the pawsoem blue star from The dogster Dog!



My coughing is easing up

So my cough is a little better, but I'm still feeling pretty cruddy. I'm quite lethargic and still not eating well. I did manage to keep a few bites down last night, so that was good news. I'm hoping that I'll feel like eating tonight and regain my strength to start feeling better. I've had wonderful support from my friends at STAFU and Schitzo has been sending extra prayers since he knows exactly how I feel. Thanks Schitzo, my paws are crossed for you, too! I hope you continue to stay healthy and keep proving the Dogtors wrong. I know I've surprised all of mine. BOL

It's gonna be a hot humid week. Not what I need, but I'm gonna give it all I have. Thank Dog for the AC (and that's not animal control .... BOL)
