Rhonda,

I'm not looking right now because I'm getting ready to go to Michigan for 3 to 4 weeks and it would be too disturbing to uproot one several times in a short period of time. After I get back my daughter has a kitten for me. She is keeping it until I return so the trauma will be only 1 time.

You didn't upset me because most likely I will eventually get another dog since I haven't been without one for any length of time in nearly 30 years..

Today, I managed to leave and come back into the house with minimal tears.

good morning....

I'm glad you are feeling a little better, Elsie. I follow the Joplin Humane Society and Golden Paw on facebook....I know you're probably not ready yet, but you might keep an eye on them...you never know when a pooch might 'speak' to you. I hope this suggestion doesn't offend you, that isn't my intent.

everyone have a good day.......... emoticon

Just wanted to say I am so very thankful for my two dogs that I have outside. They have made my day wonderful. I was feeling down with my fibromyalgia and they always seem to brighten up my day! They are so goofy at times. One is smart and the other is called my special needs dog, because I really think she is retarded. I love her anyways!! They have made my daily walks greats. Without them by my side I wouldn't care about walking each day!

Elsie,

It truly is one of the hardest things you ever have to do. Take comfort in knowing it is the right thing. As always, my prayers are with you and DJ. May God bless you with strength and courage through these next difficult days and weeks as He takes DJ into His care.

Your friend,
Rhonda

one of the really difficult times will be putting him in the van for the last time and then having to walk away at the vets.....knowing it's the right time is so hard and hoping for the right amount of courage, too...

I will be taking DJ into the vet Tuesday for his final visit. He will be running and jumping again and out of pain but in the mean time I will be in tears. I pray I have the strength to do this. He will get to see "Dad" again.

we've had a 3 day break in the humidity and LOVIN IT.

extra walking time while it's breathable out there because indoor walking just isn't the same!

good morning....

back from Missouri, company is gone, and I'm back....it's been a rough 2 weeks on Maggie, but right now she's snoring in her bed behind my chair so she'll be fine. I had 4 additional people in an 800 sq ft house, we were crammed in here like sardines!!!!

I hope everyone is well, especially you and DJ, Elsie.

everyone have a good day.......... emoticon

Went away for a group gathering Saturday and by Sunday found it was too much stimulation (voice noise and tight stuffy quarters) even though it's been 3 1/2 months since I had my stroke. I'm still whacked out tired but have my gym appt this morning so here I am. Hope to nap later.

2 of my granddaughters came over last evening so they could brush DJ for me and I cut back some of his fur---especially around his neck...he has been more subdued today and not moving as much as he did yesterday.

It's been hot hot here so we have been inside all day with the AC going.

It has been illegal here to have fireworks here for years, but there are still people always shooting them off. We can't even have glow worms. I wanted to have some of those this year. They don't hurt people bad and they stay on the ground and don't catch things on fire, but they won't even let you have them. I guess some of the illegal use has died down here because almost everyone in the neighborhood has dogs now (helpful when there is barking because they aren't complaining all the time).

Yesterday I spent the afternoon helping a friend with her sister's dog. Her sister is living in another state going through her medical residency and the husband doesn't groom the dog. She had mats all over and fly larvae under the mats, so we were trying to get the mats off. My friend picked the fly larvae off before I got there, thank goodness. The poor little girl is bald because the mats were pulling her hair so much. We got her to looking like a Portugese Water Dog and got most of the mats off her by the time we were through and she got shaved the rest of the way today at the vets. My friend is hoping to get her nephew to groom her regularly. He has also been out of state with his mom. Now my friend is getting some fly spray salve/ointment to put on her because they cannot leave the dog indoors or she eats anything wood. I am glad that I have a shorter haired dog.

Riley is extremely noise sensitive. Unfortunately we do not have considerate neighbors and we have fireworks going off all day and night starting the middle of June through September. And they are illegal here.

Before all the trees grew big around here, we could see to Cheyenne (Dad was wondering what a ligh was one night and it turned out to be a fire in Cheyenne). We would watch the fireworks from all around Denver.

I used to have a dog that liked to watch the fireworks. Noise from them didn't seem to bother her, but mostly we were up on a hill away from the noise.

fireworks has never seemed to bother DJ,,,

we had quite a few of them ourselves so can complain about the neighbors so just enjoyed theirs as well as ours...we can see fireworks from about 7 different directions from our back yards..everyone quit setting them off around 10:30 to 11 PM here...mostly very considerate neighbors..

Hope everyone had a great 4th and that the dogs didn't get too upset by the fireworks. We had some around here -- the laws are never completely followed -- but not too many and Cassie and I stayed inside so she did okay through them. The short time we were outside when they were just starting before dark she just looked like "what was that."

good morning...

Even though the neighbors didn't over do it with the fireworks last night, they did enough to turn Maggie into a 'velcro' dog. Then we had thunderstorms after midnight.....neither of us had much sleep...I'm glad it's over.

We're leaving for Missouri in the morning, so i'll be offline for a few days, I hope everyone has a good week.

everyone has a good day........... emoticon

I just dropped in to see what was going on with the Dog Lovers team. I don't get any notices of things (other than the new Mascot of the Week), and often don't get to teams that I don't get notices from because I am on the computer so long. Don't really mean to ignore everyone.

Cassie, who I was given last year, had her 6th birthday a month ago. She is so sweet and she and my cat, Orzo, are really getting along now.

Just read about DJ and am sorry he is having such problems. I saw someone had mentioned alternative therapies and that might be an idea for him if you are interested. Since I haven't been on this team for a while, I don't know much of what is going on with people or their dogs. Hope he will be able to do okay for a while for you. I am sorry you are going through this.

DJ did fair today.....he did lay out this evening in the cool air...Veronica did help him up the last step as his legs just gave out....next week is back into the 90's and I am really concerned about him...he may not last through the week..

Weight was down for the 5th week straight at weigh in this morning..not down much but still down..

Our roommate took our pup out for long walks in the morning while we were gone over the weekend! how awesome to hear~he would whine in my car.....thought he didn't like the ride, but turns out expression of excitement. I love the fact can trust him with our "babies"

Thinking about taking Turkey to the field before it gets too hot, or the possible afternoon monsoon storm can roll in. Not much for humidity in the high desert, but enjoy a good thunderstorm.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July weekend!

good morning......

Happy Birthday, Diva. My dog Maggie turned 11 in May, other than some arthritis in her hips that flairs up occasionally, she is still a puppy at heart.

I also have Maggie on Frontline Plus. She goes to the groomer every 4 weeks so I put on the frontline on that day. Grooming day isn't a good day for her and the frontline doesn't make it any better, so I get her a special treat on that day.

I hope DJ is having a good day today, Elsie. I'm glad the cooler temps have been making him a little more comfortable. I'm keeping you both in my prayers.

everyone have a good day............ emoticon

Wed JULY 2nd: 144.5

Morning ended, shower yet to begin, lots of bills to pay, and the dog did not get his monthly meds yet. I take little Oliver to the groomer this afternoon for a summer shave cut and the tick liquid can go on after that. He is SO cute with his hair all long and puppy like looking but the gnarling is a battle I can't take on.

New item to buy for the monster is a ball throw handle. I gave mine away when my bigger dog died but found this tiny guy can do half a football field run and retrieve with the best of them. LOL I should have taken a video.

Too hot for walking and a storm is headed our way to add to the mix.

Oh Elsie! That is so hard to hear. Your poor pup is not feeling good and we are always hopeful that they will miraculously recover. Our old family dog had those same issues and eventually the reason for her getting put down. When she fell and couldn't get back up while at the vets made the decision clear. It's so hard to see your family hurt but harder to decide when to let go and ease their pain causing you more. Good Luck! My thoughts are with your family.

Hi Elsie,

I know having to make those kind of arrangements is one of the hardest things to do. There comes a time when you have to make the 'quality of life vs. quantity of life' decision, and our pets depend on us to make that decision. God bless you and guide you through these next few weeks.

He had a lot of difficulty getting to the groomer to get his nails trimmed today. He made it half way up her ramp and then his legs agave out completely. After resting a few minutes he managed to crawl up just inside her door. He had to be totally lifted into the van both times. He had to rest after getting back home before he had enough strength in his legs to get into the house. Now we are getting more rain which doesn't help him at all. I have made arrangements toward the end of next month to take him to the vet if there isn't any improvement. I am not looking forward to that time and am sure it will sneak up quicker than I am ready for. Just tears me up to see him struggle so.

Thanks for the comforting thoughts and words....I have been through this before also...we had 2 saint bernards for over 10 years that we finally had to put down due to their health conditions..

Hello All,
Elsie, I am glad to hear that DJ is doing better in the cooler temps. I know he is having a hard time getting around and stuff. My prayers & Hugs are coming to DJ and you. I can understand.


I was told the same thing from my vet: He said that as long as Mushka was eating, peeing, and pooping, that he would let us know when he was ready and needs to get the pain to stop. The pain med's weren't working anymore either. Finally, no matter what we tried to get him to eat, even (Steak, Tuna Fish, Pork chops, etc.) he would not eat any of it at all at the end. We had been trying to get him to eat anything and something he would eat but not a lot. This went on for weeks, but the final outcome was the same.. Then one day he didn't want to even look at food. He stayed laying down most of the day, he only was drinking very small amount. So we gave him another night, still nothing changed at all, if anything he had gotten worst.

Wednesday the 25th was only 2 months that he has been gone. It is a very hard road to have to go through it, but we care for them so much and don't want them to ever leave, but we know from the beginning that the end would be. As hard as it. We have to spend a lot of good time with them for them.

Sorry for getting carried away. I just king of thought that it might help you Elsie, and to anyone that has gone through it already.

Best wishes you all, including our fur babies too.

I hope that everyone is enjoying your weekend in very nice weather, I hope

Best wishes to all!


I will keep you all in my Thoughts and Prayers

Rhonda,

My son in law has built a ramp for him. He is adjusting to it but still chooses to use the steps at times. He walks like he might be a little sore today.

Elsie,

I saw your post on another thread, I'm so sorry you have to go through this. I've been praying for you to have strength, and to know when the time is right. On the other thread I suggested you might be able to provide some kind of ramp for him, I don't know if that is an option or even feasible,

I hope you're both having a good day..........Rhonda

I guess I spoke about DJ too quickly...

He gave us a good scare. He went outside. He was out for about 15 minutes but then he couldn't get back up on the deck. He fell off the steps. 2 granddaughters had to lift him up the steps where he struggled to get inside. After resting for an hour or so he is much better. This is the first time they have actually seen just how bad his back legs are.

He went out a little while ago and got back in without too much struggling. This heat really gets to him sometimes.

I'm not sure how much longer I will have him as it breaks my heart to see him struggle to walk. He still doesn't appear to be in pain though.

good afternoon,

thanks Elsie. Maggie is back to her normal self. She was ok the next day, so I called the vet to see if I should bring her in, and he said if see was eating, drinking and pooping normally, that I didn't need to, and she was, so I didn't. She's due for a teeth cleaning in the next week or so, so i'll have her checked out then.

I'm glad DJ is getting along ok in this heat and humidity. It's gotta be tough on them, having to wear their fur coats all the time.

have a good day.................. emoticon

sure hope your little Maggie is over whatever she had and it's a good idea to have her checked anyway...

good evening....

it's been a long couple days...my poor little Maggie has had an upset stomach and diarrhea. She must have gotten into something, but I don't know when she could have or what it might have been. She's finely coming out of it this afternoon and evening, drinking water and eating a little bit. I think she got really dehydrated. The vet had me give her Pepto, (which was a real under taking) and said to take her in tomorrow if she wasn't better, but I think I'm taking her in tomorrow anyway.

everyone have a good night....... emoticon

we will have sunny days with temps in the high 80's to low 90's tomorrow and Wednesday with possible storms returning Thursday.

Had to turn the AC on for DJ today while I went to the Y and then did some shopping. DJ was out of ice cream and was very much letting me know about it....lol

Hoping you and DJ are continuing to do well. You're probably getting the same heat we are now, those few days of cooler temps sure were nice. Now we're in for another round of storms.

DJ seems to be doing better especially on the non-rainy days and when it is cool enough that I can leave the back door open for him to go out or in as he pleases. Most of the time he still uses the steps but once in a while he will use his new ramp.

good morning,

We've got to keep the faith, Elsie. DJ will be able to tell you when it's time, and he's clearly not ready to go yet. Enjoy the time you've got with him while you can. You're still in my thoughts and prayers.

Maggie got her 'summer do' yesterday, I have her groomed every month, but I had the groomer take her extra short, and it is really short!!...lol.....I'm wondering how those little toothpick legs carry her around, but she's more comfortable and that's what counts.

everyone have a good day............ emoticon

The talk with the vet was as I expected and not good. He says it is just a matter of time now. DJ's back legs are just about gone. Randy got the ramp done and DJ has gone down and up a few times.

The vet says as long as DJ continues to eat, pee, and poop we are of........lol

Not looking forward to losing my baby.....Elsie

Hello All,

Elsie, I am happy to hear that DJ is doing a little better on Saturday. That is great for your son-in-law to build a ramp for DJ. We had to have Mushka start using my ramp to go in and out. The stairs were just too much for him. I really hope that it makes it a lot easier for him to go up and down on.

I am glad to hear that he is still eating good. It is also good that the vet increased his pain meds too.

Hope that the talk you have with the vet is a good one.

Hope that all is well. Hugs and prayers are being sent your way,

Hope that you are enjoying the day.

Best wishes to all!


I will keep you all in my Thoughts and Prayers

I know how hard it is for you...

DJ is still eating well. The vet doubled his pain med. He did good Friday but not so well yesterday...seems to be fairly good today...tomorrow we are going to Lowe's and my son in law is going to build a ramp for him...he does OK until the steps...I will be talking with the vet again either tomorrow or Tuesday...

Hello All,

Elsie, I am praying that DJ will do better. It is really hard when they get up in age. I really do hope that he will be ok.

Mushka was having back leg issues too. We had him on some muscle relaxers and pain meds. It was helpng some, but we could tell that it was hard for him. When he stopped eating completely we knew that he was telling us that it was time. I still miss him terrible and I still am heart broke.

Animals always do their best to do things that we want them to do. They are very intellegiant and sometimes easy to learn. They love us dearly like we love them.

Hope everyone enjoys their day.

Best wishes to all!

Because of the many prayers that I'm so grateful for, DJ seems better today. I still have to watch him through the week end.
