Arrival Story: Tinker Bell was given to me as a gift. She has been my best friend ever since!
Bio: Tinker Bell is the princess of the family. Tink is very sweet and has a very nice personality. She does not mind wearing clothes, and I think she knows she looks cute wearing them. Tink loves to be carried around in a bag, often trying to climb into my small handbags! (She weighs 10 lbs.!) She is a joy to live with.
I was doing fine, but then my mom reintroduced my treats into my diet. Then I got really sick again. I'm just not able to digest things like I used to.
So, I went back to the vets office. I was given some more medicine for my stomach, antibiotics, and a different type of food. I will post back how I'm doing soon, good or bad.
My tenth birthday is coming up this June. Hopefully things will be okay. My mom has been really sad about my not doing so well. She has a lot of things planned for us to do. And my Grandpa even gave me my tenth birthday gift already. He gave it to me yesterday. Remember my necklace collection? I got another one for my collection. This one is all clear Swarovski crystals. My mom also bought me a special birthday present-a Timbuktu dog bag. She bought it early because they had a big sale!
I had to go to the vet last week. Seems my pancreas is acting up again. I really can't digest even low protein, low fat food. I'm now on a special prescription diet consisting of low protein, low fat, and easily digestible. This is too crazy. My mom tried to give me my snacks that are low in protein and fat, but they seemed to cause me problems again.
Oh, I really am frightening my mom. She's hoping I don't get worse. And that I do well on this new food, for a while at least.
I posted this in one of my groups, but I thought other furamilies might like to know about this new publication.
My mom found our copy at Walmart for $4.99. Hopefully it is being sold at other newsstands. You can also subscribe online at www.readysetrescue.com. The cost of the bimonthly magazine's annual subscription seems a bit steep at $29.95, but $19.95 of that will be donated to an eligible non-profit rescue organization of your choice. If your favorite eligible non-profit rescue is not listed, you can register them online (just give as much information as possible).
The magazine is all about rescues-primarily dogs and cats, but it includes other rescue animals as well, horses, llamas, etc. It is fairly thick containing eighty-one pages. There are a lot of different articles on a variety of topics, all relating to rescue animals.
Definitely have your parent check it out next time they are at the store.
Oh, my mom and I do not get paid to promote this magazine in any way, shape, or form. We just like it.
I've been doing okay recently. I'm on a special diet now that I'm older. I can't digest fat or protein any more. :( I got very sick last summer, but as long as I stick to my dietary restrictions I'm as good as new. I'll be ten years old this June. My youngest dog sister, Shyla, has been chronically ill for about the last year. It all began with a bad incident with an IV reaction given to her for a bee sting. Then it went into her having gastrointestinal & gut motility problems. This last month (Feb. 2014) was the first month she has gone without vomiting or a vet visit. Shyla is on a special homecooked meal/prescription diet, which she gets fed around the clock. Halo has been fine but needs a cyst removed. And kitty cat, Story, has been fine.
