Not Looking Good

My problems have returned despite the pills and vet care. I have been stumbling a lot on our now, short walks. I can still do the stairs up to our deck and jump in and out of the truck with the step or ramp, but I am for sure losing ground.
I can sense Mom almost panicking about my condition. She is trying to hide it from me, but I can feel it.
Of course we will see if the vet has any other ideas about what to do now.
Mom has holidays booked in September. She is hoping to take me on yet another prairie road trip. It is now looking like I might not make it until then. If I can negotiate the ramp when that time comes, I will go for another road trip. Uncle has a place for us where we can stay while we are there and there are no stairs. Last time I was there uncle had two dogs. They have since passed from age related troubles. I guess that is kind of what I have going on.

Lobo, my friend, I am sorry to hear that you're having trouble again. Sometimes, things just seem so unfair, don't they?

Life is like a road trip, I think, where each day is a new destination. Live for today, and see what tomorrow brings when you get there. I hope and pray that your journey will be the best that it could be.

Your friend always,

Thank you Puff and everyone!
I sure do have good friends.
I'm feeling just fine. It is probably Mom who is hurting the most. She is trying her best not to let it show when we are together. She is all like, "Good boy Lobo!" and yet I can see that she has been thinking too much and crying. She doesn't throw my frisbee for me anymore because, I guess, when I stumble and wipeout, she doesn't like that. So, she puts me on a sit-stay and hides it. Then she asks me to find it! I don't run quite so fast when I am on search as opposed to chase. I like that just fine too. So, we will just make changes and adjustments.
I was in the house tonight chewing on a chewy and farting up a storm! Mom and the kitties had their noses plugged and eyes watering. I think Mom had a real laugh and not a put on one during that episode. I think it is my meds that make me more gassy than average.
