I guess the raw food isn't entirely a cure-all, and perhaps we shouldn't have listened to the holistic doctor about his eye drops. In any case, his pannus is flaring back up and now he will need drops everyday and more frequent doctor visits.


2009 Thus Far

I forgot to add I've been enjoying 2009 so far. The biggest change so far this year has been my diet. I've switched over to a raw diet and I like it! I feel more blood flow (because all of us dogs are so keen we can tell) throughout my body, my pads are less dry, and my eyes are also improving... I only do one of the drops (the yellow one that I like to lick off my paw) once a week now. The Coastal Holistic (or as James says it, "Hoastal Colistic") vet is a lot better than my previous ones... they have a really big comfy bed and 2 nice doctors that know how to touch my good. Last month I had an ear infection but that's only because I went to the ocean everyday with my great dane friend Vanna and her owner which I secretly have a crush on (I once got a hard-on behind her back, she'll never know!) Ok, I better stop writing because I must get my 23 hours of sleep!


Santa Cruz Petsmart

I forgot to write but a week ago (2/8/2009) I went to Santa Cruz's Petsmart to be a show dog. Well, sorta. The show was just to get others to adopt another greyhound like me. So far I've been to 3 types of greyhound rescue events including SF Haye's Street Fair, Pacifica Fogfest '08, and this recent Santa Cruz Petsmart. I like it because everyone pays a lot of attention to me and I even went into Petsmart's cat adoption center. The cats didn't mind me because I was too scared to look them in the eye!
