So far they are both doing real well this time. Porkie even ate some out of his bowl today. Blocker got up on her shelf and sat tonight. We think they are both feeling better after this surgery than they usually do. The vet said almost all of Porkie's teeth are gone now. He has 2 on the top that meet 2 on the bottom and that is it. Blocker had a small laceration on her jaw from a spur. His weight was holding. She had lost 40 gms but is not as low as she has gotten sometimes and we can put it back on her. WE just have to keep them eating and prevent post op complications.
We are so happy to still have Runtster, Blocker, and Porkie. We can't imagine what it will be like when they are all gone. I hope the chins were okay that you had.
This virus has knocked me on my butt and hubby is having issues too. I'm taking it easy but trying to get a little more done each day. Still coughing, still congested, tongue is still so sore, G.I. track is still messed up. Fever is mostly gone and severe fatigue too.
We got outside today in the cool sun and put out the lawn furniture and yard decorations.
Thanks for all the support! I do like the Costco idea, but Costco itself is half hour away so I only go a couple times or once a month. Mainly when I run out of coffee or dog food. They have the best price anywhere on Grain Free! What I can learn from this is that I can find easier solutions than me making everything from scratch, which is what I try to do. Perfectionism shooting me in the foot once again! The smoothies do help, and I eat once I get to work. I am just going too long between meals. I eat dinner at 11pm, and then don't eat again until between 5pm and 7pm the next day. If I have a smoothie at 3pm, I am doing much better!
Sammy I think I will see how he does if we start walking daily (We haven't been. He and Charlie ram around the yard half the day so I haven't made a point to do it.) Then I need to get back into running too, and can take them. For his mental status, I plan to continue to the next training classes and then if he really is off the chain still I might look at agility training. I kind of want to get a puppy DNA test to see what he is...what do you think of those? Are they worth it?
