I've been going to accupuncture for 6 months now and its not working any more. We started laser treatments week before last and they didn't work either. We've tried everything possible including holistic medication and I'm still limping after a year. I had blood work done last week and it came back normal as have all the x-rays they've done over the past year. So mom is taking me to have an MRI done tomorrow morning. There's no guarantee they'll even find anything, but hopefully they will so at least we'll have something to treat and work with.

I'll update you on what the MRI reveals.

Well, I heard mom on the phone making an appointment for me. ME?!! For what? Where am I going? Do I need to dress up? Do I get to wear one of my new collars? Come to find out, she made an appointment for me to get an MRI of my neck/cervical spine. WHAT??!! Seems every since I got off the prednisone, I've been limping again. I had stopped while I was taking the prednisone, but once I stopped it, it was limp city again. Mom says I've definitely mastered this limping I've been doing since November. The ortho doctor called mom on Tuesday and said that would be the next step. She's supposed to drop me off between 7:30 and 8:30 Monday morning and will probably pick me up later on that afternoon unless they need to do surgery and then I could be there for several days. They've got to put me out, so I can't have any food after 10:00 Sunday. NO. FOOD??? OMD!! Whats that mom? Mom says to quit being so dramatic, that I'll be fine. Yeah mom, but I'll be fine, but I'll be starving to death. :(



Switchable Collars

The other day on Barking Deals thru Dogster, they had a regular collar and then 2 velcro design strips where you can change up your collar depending on the season or holiday. They were only $12 so mom got each of us one. She got me a purple collar with a pink with black paw prints design strip and one with flowers and then she got Austin a black collar and a blue with black paw prints and one with a patriotic flag on it, for all those holidays where we can fly our flag. Mom's going to try, try being the definitive word here, to take pictures and post them on our pages. :)

Here's the website if you want to look at them or change up your collar too. (mom says it seems kinda easy to make, like just putting velcro on our normal collars and getting design strips of our own, but you know our mom isn't real crafty of a person.)


Reply we got from HQ about all the ERROR messages everybody- keeps getting!!!

Well, the other day, mom wrote HQ a letter asking what the major malfunction was that every time we try to post something in someone's diary (or even mine for that matter) or about a picture we would keep getting an ERROR message. We also told them that everybody else seems to be having the same problem. Here is their reply............

We use Defensio to keep spammers from posting stuff on our site via the comments feature and the Defensio system is having to learn how to distinguish "dogster speak" language from what spammers generally write. Also, if you post a comment, but don't see it right away, Defensio has probably blocked it from display until one of the staff can manually verify that the comment is not spam.

Over time, as we "teach" defensio that it's OK to allow cute Dogster-speak language, you will get the error less often and hopefully, not at all down the road. In the meantime, we appreciate your patience.

If you have a comment that keeps getting an error, send me the comment and a link to where you are trying to post and I'll take a look to see if I can figure out why it is getting blocked.

Woofs! & Tail Wags!


So there ya have it. Supposedly.

I HATE this stupid Dogster sometimes!! It wouldn't let me post a comment to the prior diary entry! GRRRRRRRRR!

I tried commenting last night but it wouldn't take my comment, so I'll try again this morning.

Mom has to get me some Prilosec to take with my prednisone so it dosn't upset my tummy.

Thank you everyone for all the get better/feel better wishes. With all the POTP, it will definitely help!

Latest took me to see the orthopedic doctor today after I was yelping more often since last week. She didn't see anything on the x-rays that my normal vet sent her so she wanted to do an ultrasound today and then next would be a cervical MRI. (she wanted to do the ultrasound because it was an less invasive procedure.)(and of course less expensive mom said) The ultrasound was "normal and did not demonstrate any soft tissue abnormalities." I have to take prednisone for 10 days and have to be on my leash all the time when I go outside...meaning NO running when I go out to potty and no jumping on the couch or bed and restricted barking cause I have to run to go bark at people when they're passing by. We're still doing the slumber partying thing in the living room, so I'm definitely not doing any jumping on the big bed. Mom's supposed to call after the round of prednisone to let them know if there's any improvement. She alerted mom that the side effects --- which everyone knows about--is increased eating, increased drinking of water then of course increased peeing to get rid of the increased water consumption. OMD! (While I was getting my ultrasound, mom went to the CVS down the street from the doctor and got some peanut butter crackers for herself and she gave me some of them when we got in the car to go home, cause she said I was such a good girl today and even impressed the vet with how calm I was.) One day at a time is all we can do. Well DUH! mom, how can we cram more than one day into a 24-hour period? Sheesh! Moms...gotta love 'em!

I tried to add the update to the last entry, but I kept getting an error, so just decided to write a new one so ya'll would know what's what.

The vet just called and all of my blood work is "outstanding" to use her term. She said there were a few crystals in my urine, but unless I'm having other problems--frequent urination, urination in the house--there's nothing to worry about. Mom told her we slept in the lv rm last night and I just basically crashed. She did A LOT of manipulating to me and with the blood and urinalysis tests, I was wiped out. I'm still kind of sore today too. She told mom to keep me off the bed (the jumping to get in and out is bad all the way around), give me TLC, give the pain pills thru the weekend and we'll see how I do. The limping could all be from the cervical spine problems I have. She said the next thing would be to refer me to a specialist to get a 2nd opinion and then on to a MRI. Mom read the booklet she got with that "Platinum CJ" and the reviews from customers was very encouraging. We're starting me and Austin on that tonight with our evening meal.

Once again I want to thank each and every one of you for your kind words and strong POTP. We'll be updating you as we go along.
