I turn 6 years old today. Momma keeps saying she doesn't know where time goes. Well, if she doesn't, I sure don't. The only time I know about is dinner time, wake up time and sleep time. Of course, sleep time happens throughuot the wake time.

Thanks to all of my pup pals for my birthday pressies and words.

Momma is going to take me to PetCo today so I can pick out a new toy so I can go home and tear the squeeker out of it in 2 minutes.

Thanks

Hobo

 

Little Hobo is sick.

Hi, this is Cindy, Hobo's momma. Hobo has something going on but the vet isn't quite sure what it is. It started about 2 weeks ago. For no apparent reason, he would just let out a cry and I just couldn't find what was wrong. As days went by, It got worse, he was letting out cries all the time. I could find nothing wrong but then he stopped eating, or when he tried, he would cry and run to me. So, a week ago, I took him to the vet. She couldn't figure it out, when she tried to open his mouth he cried like crazy. So, she took an x ray but it was normal. She thought it could be some sort of inflammation, so she gave him a shot of steroids and started him on an antibiotic and he was good for 2 days and then it started again only worse. He was still not eating, so I started to feed him baby food meat that he could just lick and not chew. I took him back yesterday and they have tentatively diagnosed him with Masticatory Myositis. We have to wait for the lab to come back but it sure sounds like that is it. I'll let you look it up if you want but it is an inflammatory disease in dogs affecting the muscles of mastication (chewing). It affects the muscles of the jaw and they can't chew and it causes pain if they open their jaws to chew. It is very rare and it is treated with large doses of Prednisone. It takes sometimes a year to clear up and the side effects of steroids that long can be troubling. In the mean time, he is eating baby food and milk and rice cereal. His spirits are good and he loves the people at the vet office, so he is always happy to go there.

So we wait for the results of the blood test and he is taking oral prednisone. Thankfully it comes in liquid form.

He needs the POP.

 

I ate solid food

Momma is so happy. I was able to open my mouth to eat some of momma's dinner. It wasn't much but I am starting to feel better. I know that it is the steroids making me be better but momma will take anything. I'm much happier today too. I went out with the boys today. Momma says I still have to eat the baby food stuff, that's okay thought I like it.

Thanks for all of the POP.

Yay!! I am the DOD. How exciting for me. Momma is thrilled. Thanks Dogster HQ. Maybe momma will buy me some ice cream for a reward. I'm better but I still can't chew very well so ice cream would be perfect.

 

I'm playing!

Today, I decided to play with my toy. I love my squeaky toys. I just squeak them over and over again until momma goes crazy. I haven't been able to do it lately because of my mouth not being able to open. So momma heard squeaking and thought Luna was doing it but, then she saw it was me. I love making my momma smile.

 

Best news ever!

That vet just called momma and I don't have that terrible disease they thought I did. The test was negative. I am on the road to recovery. I am is eating, barking and begging and playing. The dogter just doesn't know what was wrong with me and it probably remain a mystery. Something viral or just some sort of inflammation. Momma is very happy. I still have to take the prednisone though and taper off of it and hopefully it doesn't come back.

Thank you all of my pals for your good wishes and the Power of the Paw. It worked.

Now Mia, it's your turn to get all better.

Hi Pals,

Have any of you heard from Coco and Puff lately? They haven't been in contact and they usually do at least once a week. I'm a little worried cause I am Coco's beloved boyfriend and she hasn't checked to see how I am feeling.

 

mom's computer crashed

Mom wanted me to let you know that her computer crashed, whatever that means. It's been in the shop for a week and will have it back tomorrow. So that's the reason we haven't been around lately.
