Hi my friends, well Mom is finally letting me write in my diary I know it has been some time.
As you know I have been having some issues with peeing in the house, bad part is I do it when they are not expecting it.
I have been to the Vet numerous times now, getting poked and getting test, even a sonogram at the specialist 20 miles away. Nothing is showing up, I have even been on medication...they had to have it special made for me because I am small so it cost Mom more...BOL, I was a good girl getting my liquid medicine...but Mom says it is doing anything I am still peeing in the house,our new house. Mom is at her wits end with me.
So she called my new vet and they talked about what do to next. Mom thinks I have incontinence because I am getting older and I have anxiety issues more so now that Mom & Dad left us while they were getting things ready for our move here.
My vet called the specialist that did the sonogram on me and they both agree Mom needs to go back to square one, re train me in my crate and praise praise and praise me when I do go outside.
So Mom tried the crate and I peed on my blanket, a towel, the wee wee pads and the bottom of my crate...so now I have a area with wee wee pads outside of my crate, it is enclosed with our corral so I can't get out but I can go out far enough to get on the pads. Mom is tired of having to wash everything I pee on and cleaning up the floors.
I am now on Fluoxetine animal prozac for 2 months to see how I do. I get 1/4 of the pill at night before I go to bed. I sleep through the night I am not waking up early morning anymore which I did and I would cry and howl wanting Mom to get up as soon as it starts to get light out and Mom doesn't sleep in but she says really Mia must you do that every morning.
Mom and Dad sure hope this medication will help me and I don't pee in our new house where ever and when ever. We will let you know how I am doing when we can. Please pray this is the answer to all my issues cause I really am a good girl.
Oh guess what? now that Mom is retired she takes me for a short walk in our cul de sac, I don't like going too far I prefer to stay home, but it is fun to explore out there near our house.
Hugs to you my friends

Well are are finally in our new home in Arizona...it was a long ride for us in our new car. It has taken Mom & Dad a long time to get unpacked and things put away.
We are all adjusting to living here were it is so very hot now, been over 100 already. We sure are not used to that, but we are cool inside! Mom was taking us for walks before it got so hot, she doesn't like it being this hot and neither do we so no walks for us for now. We do have to tell you that one morning while walking just outside our community all of a sudden there was a coyote crossing the street almost in front of us, Mom turned us around and came back in the community. The coyote was on the other side of the road going into the desert, but it was watching us until it turned and was gone...BOL!!! that was a first, Mom wishes she would have had her camera
Now for me, you see I have been peeing inside the house, straining to go at times, so Mom & Dad took me to our new Vet, verdict is still out about us liking the new vets, anyway I had to stay for hours so they could get my urine. This was the first time I have had to stay at the vet, I missed my Mom, I didn't understand why I was in a cage and Mom was gone. But soon they came to get me and there was Mom waiting for me. I had a lot of bacteria in my urine so they sent it out for tests. I got calvamox and had to go back for recheck.
I am still peeing in the house, I will be eating and I pee, getting a treat and pee, one never knows when or where I will pee. I do go out and pee this is unusual for me, I have always been healthy and never pee in the house.
The vet talked to Mom & Dad I now have to go a vet specialist have a sonogram of my tummy and bladder to see what is going on. Mom hasn't made my appointment yet she is waiting on our insurance to make sure they are going to pay for my vet visits and special tests, they have requested for my records from my vet in San Diego...we are still waiting guess we will have to call next week to see what is going on.
So that is what is going on here, I know we are not here much anymore but I sure hope you will keep me in your prayers....I really am a good girl...

We still have our paws crossed that all will work out and we will still be here for a long time.
Thank you friends for always being here for me and my family, I know we haven't been around much for a while Mom is always busy with her pet sitting business, but things will be changing for us.
Mom and Dad are retiring, they paid off our house so they decided to move to Arizona. We will have a new house to live in, it is being built right now. Mom and Dad sold our only home we have known and soon we will be on our way to Arizona living in the foothills on Rincon Mountains. So what does that mean, Mom is closing her pet sitting business, Dad retires, then the new adventure begins.
We have to be out of our house by May 1st, Mom and Dad will go over in March to finalize everything with the house, come back home and soon after we will be packing up and on our way.
Until we move and get somewhat settled we probably won't be around much, Mom says she will try to let us come here, in the meantime know that we love you all, we are doing the doggie happy dance cause our voices and parents voices were heard...we all rallied and we won, never gave up!
This is what dogster is all about! love and friendship, that all came through with our fight to save our beloved Dogster and Catster...
So in closing today we want to thank our friends that have been sending us gifts with love...
Your friendship means the world to all of us and we are happy we can still all be here for one another.
Hugs to all
