well, the Prednisone did cause some GI tract problems. We increased the Pepcid and today the pile glop of #2 looked like it had NO BLOOD in it! Hurray!

Dixie seems to like Blue Buffalo stews. She eating almost everything we put out, so the Pred has improved her appetite. Still not doing too well with the dry kibble. Oh well, can't have eveything.

Had a nice couple of walks at the park over the weekend. Dixie's energy level on the walks seemed better than last week. (of course, we still walk a couple of steps, sniff, walk a couple of steps, sniff, sniff). BOL

Burt "watered" Dixie's head when they were both sniffing along the one of the park's baseball diamond backstops. Thank D*g we had brought some wipes with us. Came in handy on the opposite end from where we thought they'd be needed.

Burt continues to clean up Dixie's food bowl. He's doing better on the Blue Buffalo we picked up for him. Burt's shape is still very "burrito" looking... our Burt-ito! LOL

Good walks and good sniffing !

Try some Arrowroot in her dinner.... just a though.. will settle her tum too. Most healty food places should have it. I sprinkle about a teaspoon of it on Lucas's food if he gets an upset.

Hugsssssssssssssss
