Black Pearls of Wisdom...

the hand that got her to eat...

Dixie, sadly, has stopped eating the Blue Buffalo, the Beneful Hearty Meals, the Chicken Teriyaki, the beef summer sausage, the Tyson steak strips,etc. It's a struggle day to day to find things that she'll eat.

We're feeding Dixie different things by hand, sometimes lifting her lip & rubbing the juice/gravy on her teeth so she'll taste what we're holding. Dixie's remaining vision is getting more spotty so she can't see what we're offering her. She can't smell what we're trying to feed her as she has a lot of nasal discharge. Our vet said it's a high possibility the cancer has manifested itself up in Dixie's nasal passages, given how it presented earlier in her eyes.

Thank you so very, very much for the continued prayers and PotP. Dixie's made it so much farther than they thought she would. We are very blessed.

a happy update:

I got her to eat almost 2 whole cheese hot dogs at around 5:15am, and Lar got her to eat 2 more around 9am. Before anyone weighs in about the dangers of nitrates and preservatives in hot dogs, you're missing the BIG POINT--SHE ATE SOMETHING!

All my family is very sorry and feels sad for yours. The love you have for and from Dixie is so precious. Could it be time to help her make a peaceful transition? It would be the most difficult decision for the people but perhaps the kindest choice for your Dixie. We will always be here to support.
