mommie is helpin me writes another diary story cause da last one we writes got eats up by da dogster fleas!! :O0
well, seems da past 2 weeks have been a real adventure fur me..
and not really a fun one, though... first, mommie has been noticing dat i has been walkin kinda funny.. first it was after playin.. i'd go up my aunt lisa's & when i got home, i just didn't wanna move.. mommie would has to come over & help me get up off da floor!! well, my mommie took me to da vets fur x-rays
on my hips.. now..first off, i had to get sedated..mommie was a wreck!! da vet say to her dat it was o.k. i would not b asleep, still aware of things, just very relaxed.. so there i was, my tongue just hangin out my mouth, i couldn't even stand up!!
so they put me on my back on this big machine & takes sum pictures.. after they was done & the vet didn't has to take anymore, him gives me another shot & it wakes me right up!!
like nothin even happened!! anyway, da news was not goods at all.. i has hip dysplasia!! mommie was sad & cried.. her new i had all da symptoms, but was still hopin it was not true..
but its true.. vet say i has pretty bad case already.. so i start takin some medicine.. if it not helps after a month, then i will start takin a prescription medicine.. vet tells mommie not get to worked up, dat i should still have a few good years before it really , well, makes me not walk well at all.. so dats dat.. i still get to play & stuff, just has to b more careful & i has to loose a few pounds too.. so..after that, one night we was sleepin.. well it started stormin really bad!!
i gets mommie up & her say holy cow droopy, listen dat thunder!
i knows mommie, i say, i don't likes it at all!!! da lightning was horrible too & thunder was so loud!! all of sudden we hears all this beepin & stuff & runs downstairs & mommies alarms goin off!!! her thinks da house get hit by lightning!! OMD!! her calls 911 & da firemen come & looks all rounds & tells mommie dat it was a big power surge!! dat lightning hit something & came in through to our house too!! boy was it ever scary, i tell you pups!!! we didn't has no fire, thank dog, and thank god too!!! so...a few days go by & now i am startin to go after my butt!! lickin & stuff.. mommie is startin to get worried bout this.. i will b sleepin & all sudden just jump up & go after it.. then..it started.. the scootin.. yup, dats right pups,
da droopster was doing "da scootin butt dance"... so mommie say dat it, back to da vets!! oh know i thinks!!! but oh yes, it was true.. let me tell you this pals, it was an embrassing moment fur da droopster.. mommie got over top of me & held my head & da vet was behind me & him, well...er... dat is to say..
well lets just say this, my anal glands were impacted & needed to b "released" .. i'll just let you pups go wif it from there, o.k. i'm sure you can figure out what da vet did... oh good grief.. the embrassment.. so after he was done..he sprayed my butt... and gives me a shot to helps wif da inflamation & gives mommie pills to gives me fur 5 days.. i happy to say dat i feel better.. this was just on friday.. so i'm still goin back there somewhat, but mommie thinks its just cause i might still be alittle uncomforable.. her say wait till all da pills is gone & if i still doin it, then its back to vet... but, i sure am lots better.. i tell you pups, dat was not a fun feelin, at all!!!
i even wanted to play saturday when mommie got home from works!! my tail was waggin more & mommie say her could see in my face i was lots happier!!! so there you has it pups..
sorry this diary entry so longs, but has you can see, lots been goin on wif me past few weeks.. this gettin older isn't easy thing.. but i sure am gettin alot more spoiled lately!!! :O)

Hi Droopy... wow sure are alot of things going on there, Im sure once you start taking your meds for your hips you will be just fine, and you know when you should take it easy too, everything will work out, and for your anal glands that is not a fun thing to have happend to you, I bet you were embrassed. But that is over now too.
Glad you enjoyed your bone, Hand in there pal and you will be just fine.
Lots of love and kisses!!!
WOW! What a busy, busy weekend for you and mommy! I sure am glad to hear the house didn't catch fire! Sad to hear about your hips though. Us dogs gets it tough some times. That butt scootching dance is a really fun dance until it lands you at the VET! BOL! I tend to tuck my bootay so far in they really have to fight to get the job done! BOL!
Take care Droopy!!
ooopsies...i meant, busy couple of weeks. Heaven forbid all that happen in one weekend! BOL!
What a time you have had !!!!! HUGSSSSSSSSSSS
The hip stuff... take your meds and it will help lots. Also.. take a Cod Liver Oil capsule daily if you dont already... good for Mum to take one as well. LOTS of things can help you... and losing a little weight WILL help.. Raw meaty bones are good for you.. and not fattening... !!
You are MUCH loved... and its going to be OK...
Sorry to hear about ur hips. Maybe ur mama will be able to get a pet wheelchair for u so u can get around better and still play. When I was a puppy the vet wanted to keep an eye on me for hip dysplasia since us big dogs r prone to it.
Tried to leave u a gift and a bone, but thing wasn't working.
Ugh tried to post a comment and it failed. *facepaw*
Hey Droopy, sorry about your hips. Mommy says that my brother Hunter had problems with his hips too.
With meds your anal gland situation should be better in no time. Sorry you had to go through that though, must've been embarrassing.
