It has not been the greatest week. Actually all winter I have been having problems. My legs joints seem to be trying to go the same way as Neddy's. I have been into the Vet for this and on medication, which helped me at the beginning of Winter. The last few weeks I have been having a hard time walking or getting up from when I've been sleeping.
Last year, if you remember, I went down and could not get up. Momma had to help me out of the sitting position for nearly 2 weeks. That's when Dr.Boden put me on Rimady. I was doing really well when I went in December for my check up. Then about two weeks ago I tripped and fell to my side making me limp with my left hind leg. Now I'm having a problem with my front legs from putting more pressure on them. I don't cry out but that is not an indication on how much I may be hurting. I tore the nail out of it's bed two years ago and had to have surgery to repair it. I got it stuck in the security screen and jerked it out before Momma could help me. I did not cry out at all. In fact Momma would not have known how bad it was if she did not see blood everywhere.
Momma will be taking me to my vet on Monday if things have not changed. She is afraid I'm going to hurt myself worse being unstable like I am. Please anyone who may read this keep me in prayer. My Momma and Daddy are very worried about me. I still have a wonderful appetite, and still try to chase the cats away from my kibble (not that I can catch them),:) so that is great. My attitude is good, I'm not grouchy at all and still my same loving self. It's just that I cannot walk steadily. Please no rosies..that's not what I'm asking for at all. Just your love and prayers.
Love Sweet Caroline xoxoxo

It was a LONG day at the Vet yesterday! We spent over 2 hours there!! I kept trying to leave cuz I was sick of it!:)) I kept pulling Momma to the doors trying to go home.
I was checked to see how I'm walking and I'm doing very well on the treatment of Rimadyl once a day and the Glucosamine I'm taking. My heart is doing great and then I had to have a comprehensive blood test. That part was the hardest for Mom and Dad to wait for. Well they had to take Georgie in today and they got the results of my blood test back. It is all PERFECT!!!! Yay!!! Mom was so happy to hear good news she almost cried. She said it was the best $300.00 she's spent in a LONG, LONG TIME!
Georgie was a pip though! He was being a cocky rooster and had just got done putting his nose into a plant in the waiting room that was SOAKED with male markings. He had to hike REALLY BAD to return the call...so not finding anything else he hiked on Mom's leg!!:-O She forgot where she was and said loud..Georgie what did you DO??? That was the best part and all the office was laughing including the doc and patients AND Dad!!
The best part of today is that George's heart murmur has been downgraded from a grade two/three to a grade ONE! That means the strict diet of no salt and the Enalaprel is working!!! Mom is so happy she feels like she's floating!! It has been a very good day! xoxoxo

ADOPT 2012 CONTEST
We lived in Arkansas in 1997 and where we were staying, a pickup of two men with a back bed full of pups came up into our yard. They told us that if we wanted the pups we could have them and if not they were either going to turn them loose in the woods or shoot them........well, needless to say, we adopted the whole litter. They were shared among the family , and now we have 2 left of these dogs in California, and placed the one who was too big to be in my small California city yard, on a cattle farm in Arkansas. His name is Butchie and he is TOP DOG and goes with his new Daddy everywhere. He became a cattle dog. We have had these lovely dogs since they were 5 weeks old and blue eyed babies and promote adoption 100 percent.
Caroline is now 15 years old and adored as one of the family.
