I am doing my bootcamp videos b/4 going to the gym. It is easier. I also took my Lucy Dog to the Vets this morning. She has been acting strange and winy alot over the holidays. I know her eye site had started to go because her eyes have gotten clouded over, this has been over the past 2 months. The Vet said her levels were extremely high and that because she is such a good dog she probably didn't let us know how bad she has been feeling and only just started to wine. I thought it was arthritis because she has had that problem with her hips for about 4 yrs. We put her on some meds for that problem but the doctor really doesn't think she has too long. Jeff and I have to agree, we are not the type to give out dogs diabetes shots everyday and check her blood. We have watched her diet over the last few years and she has lost some weight but not enough to keep from getting diabetes. I truly love my dog and have had her for over 11 yrs, she is a good old girl, the sweetest thing. I got her at the pound where they were getting ready to put down the next day if she wasn't adopted. She is part American Fox Hound and Boxer (I never worried about flys or bugs in my house because she could catch one in her mouth). She weights in at 70 pounds and was a house dog. We have another dog but he is my husbands and is crazy, whoever thought it would be a good idea to mix a Jack Russell and Poodle was not using their thinking caps that day. Anyway we will see how long my Lucy hangs in b/4 we take her over to the Vets to have her put to sleep. I will miss her so much, she was with me when I had elbow surgery, chemo for my kidneys, staff infections, a TIA, Hysterectomy among other things that have gone wrong with me. She was my house and walking buddy for years. What can one say about a good dog!
