Yup, we have a 4 year old Dachshund/Chihuahua mix. He's the light of our life! Nuff' said.

Hi Julie,

Still no results of the labs yet.
No Super salt cravings.
Just very thirsty!

Having strange headaches.
This is one of the symptoms of Hyponatremia along with not sleeping well and being cranky.

With all this I remain grateful that there will be a solution to this dilemma.
Thanks again for the ongoing support.
It makes tough times like these lots easier.

Before we evacuated for hurricane Katrina, we had a a dog - Sarah, a rabbit - Liberty (so named because he was rescued from a family who didn't treat him too well) and a cockatiel - Lissie (short for Ulysses).

Since we didn't know what we were coming home to, my SIL from Massachusetts took Lissie since she had always wanted a cockatiel, and he is doing fine. We left Liberty in Virginia with my DS because he loved being able to run free in the country, which he couldn't do in New Orleans. He has since passed away. But we brought our little Sarah home with us.

While we were gutting our flooded house, we found a Toy Poodle who had been living on the streets since Katrina - 14 months. Of course, he was nothing but skin and bones. We took him to the SPCA where they tried to locate his owners. After that failed, we adopted him. We named him Guffy (after Alfred Hitchcock's infamous MacGuffin). Guffy never weighed more that 3.5 pounds because of the ravages he suffered while living on the streets.

About a year later, we lost both Sarah and Guffy. They had both suffered many health problems. After that , we decided to just take care of other people's animals when needed.

In a few days we will have 3 pugs for a week. The next week we will have 2 shih-tzus and 2 other dogs, a beagle and a huge dog - not sure of the breeds - at the same time. We never go too long without getting our dog-fix. Of course, any that are allowed, sleep with us. (sometimes the owners insist they sleep in a crate)

So, even though we don't have any of our own, we still have many to love on.

You could dog-sit like me, I'll bet!

How goes the hypo-salt situation? I haven't read any of the blogs yet and was thinking about you because my salt was over the other day.. I wished I could have sent some of it your way.
Does everything taste super salty since your body is needing it?

Lots of animal lovers here! I have two fur-kids and one part time dog that I babysit while his Momma works.Devon Mackenzie is my sweet boy and Tapp'er Toes is my sweet girl. Milo is the day care doggie.

My two are Cairn Terriers just like Toto in the Wizard of Oz and Milo is a Shih-tzu/Yorkie cross who weighs 4.8 pounds fully grown!
Tapp'er got her name because we were sitting for the breeder and she would put her front paws up on the x-pen and tap her back paws and kinda dance. She didn't have a name yet so I began calling her Tap her toes. When she became mine, we changed the spelling and kept the name. LOL Mack wasn't refined enough for his papered name so he just became Mack. I call him Macaroni Noodle. He is 12 this summer and Tap is going to be 9. Milo is only two and a half

emoticon It becomes clear to me as I read my post that i am one of those fanatic dog lover types
