It is with a heavy heart, Delilah passed this evening after a brief bout with lymphoma. She was active right up to her final days, and let nothing dampen her spirit. She's with her mother now, and can continue her afterlife in the best of care. I will always cherish your memory, and miss you fuzzy girl ...

Somebody sure does love the snow. Just like a kid, up early to head outside and play in the snow.

 

Spring '13

Well we made it thru the winter. Guess shedding season is about to start :(

Boo got sick last fall, vet said it was intestinal cancer, suggested putting her down. She had lost weight, about 20 pounds, and refused to eat, and getting sick all the time etc… The more I thought about it, the more I felt the vet just blew us off due to her age. So off to vet #2, which bet his bottom dollar she contracted hook worms somewhere (did have her in the kennel the month before) and her whole intestinal tract was inflamed. Plus the blood work didn’t support cancer, her stats were better than mine, even with her being sick. Apparently these worms do not show up in the standard test. So he gave her some pills that would kill anything that wasn’t supposed to be in there, and some for the inflammation. Over the winter we ate small frequent meals of whatever she had a notion for, and she slowly started putting some weight back on. Other milestones along the way were the ability to jump up in the truck for rides, jump up on the bed etc.. So now she’s back to her old plump self, running around like a 3 year old nut case, and yelling at me for not moving fast enough for whatever she wants. So we’re pretty much back to normal, except now we no longer want anything at all to do with dog food, we’ll hold out for the good stuff that comes off the grill, or the stove, or that big cold white box with the goodies. I’ve created a four pawed food critic ….

We're still around, getting older, but still going. Delilah's doing great, starting to get a little hard of hearing (other then selective), but is working great with hand signals. Vet cracked me up last month, she walked in the room and said "wow, look at what we got here, a 1999 model" 2 more years, I can get classic tags for her :)

Thanks for all the gifts and birthday wishes, maybe someday we'll figure out how to use this thing, and put a little more content up. Posted some recent pics of the Boo, within the last 8 months anyway. She's been staying in the indoor ice box (air conditioning) since mid spring, and only ventures outside when there's something that interests her. She's not a fan of the heat, especially since she hasn't dropped her coat from last winter yet ... I am so looking forward to that ... It's soon time, all the little sprites of hair popping out, have started showing up here in the last week, Soon as the undercoat lets loose, it'll be "stress test" the vaccume time.

:)

Sorry for the lack of activity, just still in kind of a funk. Boo's still being her nutty self, and as happy as ever.

We'll try and update some things on here as time permits.

 

1st stay at the kennel

Well Boo survived her stay at the kennel last week. From all reports she did great for her first time. After we were back home for a bit, I heard this noise that I couldn't identify. First thought it was the fridge taking a dump, or the fish tank pump had a squirrel caught in it, just something really wrong. What I found was Delilah at the front door "trying" to bark at someone that had knocked on the door. I howled, she had herself all barked out. The poor girl was absolutely horse from barking over the 5 days while in the kennel. We did a few tropical flavor Halls to help the sore throat, and she did her best to sleep non-stop for the next 2 days, so everything’s better now, the barker's all better, and works just fine.

 

Vet visit

Well the ol'girl hit the vets for a check up after things settled down a little. Apparently the tick she picked up in feb/mar left her a present. So now we're on antibiotics for Lyme disease (spelled lime for cinco de mayo). Between that and both ears have a slight bacterial infection. So she has her little daily pill counter going for the next couple of weeks. Good part is she's in great shape for an old broad, and tipping the scales at 70 pounds (I'm supposed to say "it's all muscle") She's still moping around the house, and still runs out to the car waiting for her Mommy to get out. Both her, and her Daddy wish that were the case.

We're going to try a boarding kennel for the first time this weekend, just for a day to see how it goes. Hopefully she'll meet some new friends there, and it'll be ok. Fingers crossed.

Thanks again for the comments and support over the last few weeks, it's helped a lot.

I want to send the warmest holiday wishes to everfur, and their humans. On this Christmas Eve, I reflect on the year, and the trials it has brought. I pray that 2010 is a much happier and healthier year for my family, and for all of yours. May peace comfort your souls, may love fill your hearts, and may graciousness be the exception to the rule. God bless, and God speed!! I love you all!!

The Flu Can Fly Away!!!!

As if my Mommy doesn't feel lousy enough at times, she got hit with the flu!!! It's been hangin' on for about a month now. Her doctor said she can't afford to get "sick" because her immune system is already not where it should be due to the cancer, and her meds. Daddy had it, but he got over it rather quickly. Anyway, Mommy is still dealing with a cough, and definitely fatigue, but she feels a lot better than she did. I've just been a good fur and lay by her side to comfort her. Mommy appreciates that, and then gives me lots of kissies!!! I hope she doesn't give me the flu!!!! I'm a tough, hearty gal - I'll just growl and the flu bug will run away yelping!! BOL!!!!
