May 2010 Update
Brandy has got to be the sweetest dog that ever lived. She went to obedience training but had evidently already been trained as she knew everything so only went once and has been wonderfully behaved ever since. Her cataracts took over and she is totally blind but as I learned with blind Goldie that doesn't make much difference to a dog as they don't see well anyway and operate practically totally by smell. Brandy does everything that the other dogs do - the only difference is that she can only go outside the yard on leash as cactus are low growing and she cannot sense when she is going to run into one so has to be on leash to protect her from cactus. Inside the 3/4 acres yard she runs totally free so gets plenty of good exercise. Her diabetes is well controlled with insulin. We did find out that she had been blood tested so much that we could not get blood out of her to check her glucose level so I test her urine at home with Diastix and don't take her to the vet any more except for an annual checkup. She has a bed on the couch at home (the only spoiled one in that respect) but it gives her a quiet place to rest when she gets tired.
