Dad took me to my appointment very early this morning so they could do a full blood panel, then he went to work and left me at home with Mom and the cats! Mom is off until next Monday.
Dr. Shaw heard about my eating habits this past week, and in case I may still be feeling nauseated I got some new pills to take. He said either that or I'm just holding out for chicken, but every now and then I don't want to eat alot of chicken either! I also lost a couple of pounds.
Mom and I just got home from a nice walk. I found a piece of tortilla hidden in a pile of leaves but Mom got it out of my mouth before I could swallow it. We also sat smack in the middle of the public park on the grass in the sun since it's a little chilly. I did my usual rolling on my back!
When we got home, Dad called because Dr. Shaw called him at work to tell him about my blood results. My white blood cell count is still a little low, and some other number was a little high probably because of my eating habits, but overall there are no big concerns, so I just have to try to hang in there and take my pills. I have another appointment for chemo on December 8th.
So, let me tell you about my job as a food critic! A few days ago, Mom took my regular food which I refused to eat and decided to experiment. She added some rice, fish oil, egg, chicken, and a little peanut butter to it and baked it like cookies! And, I ate all of it! But that only last a couple of days.
Today Mom went to the store and bought different cans of food for me to try but not all at once because we don't want to upset my tummy more if that's part of the problem. I did get to try a can of Halo's Spot Stew though and almost ate a whole can of it, but I don't know if I want that at the next meal!
I'm hungry and they know it because I follow them around in the kitchen and I'll take a treat out of their hands really fast, but I don't think they're having as much fun with this as I am.
Oh, and then there was that love note Dad left for Mom the other morning before he left for work:
Quincy did not eat all his chicken. It's in the bowl in the fridge. See if he will eat it for you.
I ate it, after it was warmed up.
Happy Thanksgiving! I'm so thankful for my friends, and though I've had a rough couple of weeks, I am glad to be here today.
Happy Thanksgiving to you too! Hope you can eat some more.
We're glad you're here too Quincy! Sounds like you like a little variety in your meals. BOL Maybe you'll get some turkey and gravy and smashed taters tomorrow. Have a great Thanksgiving. We Love You...Doo, Austin & Mom

We's thankful to have you as a friend Quincy.
Glad your test were ok, but we need to get you eatting. Can mom and dad just feed you human food or does the vet not want you to? That's all we eat (BOL we are pickey)You need to keep your girlish figure so no more food strikes...BOL
Have a great Thanksgiving and to your family!
Woof Woof, Molly
We love that roll in the grass photo. My horse sis, Daune, loves to roll in the arena sand.
We want to wish you and your family a great thanksgiving. My Mom's sister is visiting us from Michigan so we're going to celebrate thanksgiving for the second time.
That means turkey for me and Caileigh.
We'll be thinking of you. Quincy, we're very thankful for being your pal. You're so brave. Have fun with Mom and enjoy your food sampler . . . maybe Mom will make you some more cookies.
Your pals, Riley, Caileigh and Dad
Quincy, you are a very brave boy. If you eat just a little bit every day your parents will be very happy. We hope you and your parents and the rest of the pack too have a very happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy every moment of it!
Happy Thanksgiving, Quincy! Hope you find something you want to eat!
Happy Thanksgiving Quincy! Did you get some turkey? :)
