What's new in your world?

Do you think we're the only two people still here? Sad. This team is full of lovely people.

Hello, everyone!

I wondered if there was anyone around who wanted to revive our chats

Can you believe 2019 is already 1/4 gone???

It can be so hard to hear when our fur babies get sick, but at least there is treatment for you little guy. May you all have many more years ahead. It is good that Penelope is trying hard with him. Hugs for you all and puppy kisses as well.

Hello Westies!

Its been a very long time since I stopped by and said hello, hope you are all well!

I just wanted to let you guys know that Riley just after his 11th birthday (4/11/17) was "diagnosed" with Pulmonary Fibrosis. I'm told that it is very common for Westies his age.
He had a little cough and we treated it for kennel cough but it never would clear up so we brought him back to the vet. This time he listened more closely and while there is no way to be 100% positive until post mortem, he has diagnosed him with PF. So now my little wootermans is on steroids and cough suppressants for the rest of his life. There is no way to be sure how bad the fibroid's in his lungs are so there is really no way to gauge expectancy.
The only thing we can do now is make him comfortable and love on him.

So sort of sad news but we are just going to keep positive and enjoy him for as long as we can. He could have another 10 years for all we know, he is ornery in his old age. :)

Penelope is doing well, she is beginning to understand that Riley is old and can't run after her the way they used to. It's so cute, she will run ahead and then stop and wait on him to catch up.

So there it is, our little update. :)

Hope you guys are all doing well! Kisses to those puppies!

How are you doing, Becky? Feeling any better?

MAMABEARILICIOUS' birthday was the other day. Has anyone heard from Debra? I guess I'm no one to talk, I haven't been around much at all. Pneumonia. It's really laid me low, but I'm starting to get better.

Surgery is over. I'm home and recovering just fine. It became a big ordeal because my heart wouldn't settle down... There's a long story with this that I won't bore you with. Buddy was well cared for in my absence. Rich has been taking good care of me. I have been blessed.

Hi Team!

My hysterectomy surgery is set for Monday the 20th at 9am. Anxious and scared at the same time.

They found pre-cancer in the biopsy, but If they find cancer during the surgery then they will be doing a lymphectomy too which will increase the time of surgery from 2hrs to 4. They will be doing 'robotic' surgery. Has anyone had that done?

I'll try to check in after this is all over.

PS Buddy is doing really well. He's definitely the "miracle dog". The food that I've been making prescribed by US Davis has made a world of difference in his health.

emoticon

Always something positive out of anything.... I've lost 10 pounds this month! Yippee!!

"Cold" where I live is the high 70s. The locals wear jackets! LOL I'm in Washington right now, and it was cold when it was in the 20s, but in the 50s and 60s, it's delightful. I guess because I'm so fat, I tolerate cold better than hot.

Hi Team! As you see I haven't come up with a challenge!! Shame on me. We've been busy since the first of the year, just as I am sure you all have been. My brain doesn't seem to be able to work out a problem. Help!!

So today I'm supposed to do a Glucose Curve on Buddy. It is so time consuming and I just don't have the energy. It consists of poking him every two hours and taking a glucose reading with the drop of blood. I think I should pick another day since today really isn't a 'Normal' day for him. The storm outside has kept him in. He went out long enough to pee and that was it! BUT I must say, he looks so cute in his raincoat!

Let me know if anyone is out there! I feel dumb writing to myself... or maybe it is my diary? LOL

Be Safe!
B

Merry Christmas team!

Buddy is doing well. Ever since I got the diet from UCDavis it has made a huge change in him with his IBD and pancreatitis.

Today we will be spending the evening over at our son's house for dinner and family gathering. I hope you have a day of sharing with your families too.

Stay warm & dry. Here's to the last week of 2016... Cheers!

Do any of you have a fit bit? I've never had one before but got one couple of weeks ago. I love it. I've tried a lot of stuff but this is working for me. I'm slow but keep going. I work so thought I wouldn't have enough time in the day for it. But I'm making it work. It's kind of addicting. If anyone out there has one and wants to be a fit bit friend give a shout.

Live Well
Laugh Often
Love Much

Things always get slower this time of year with the holidays. here will be a flood of new spark members in general after the new year, it always happens. There will be more spark activity in general in January and beyond. I hope the rest of the team kicks in then as well.

Hello, all of my teams are dead. Is it spark-wide? I'm to blame, too. I've been in an awful funk and don't have energy for anything these days, even being on the computer.

You know, he was such a brat for his first few years, but then he settled down into a lovely companion. And he's a real diplomat, too. I've lived in the Middle East and Asia where they don't like dogs, but he was so lovely and sweet that people changed their minds about dogs. I think he would have made a wonderful therapy dog, and in a way, I suppose he was, because he helped me. emoticon

I hope Buddy is feeling better. MacDuff loves people, and he got to host a "do" last weekend, which perked him up. His fosters say he likes to lie in the creeping thyme in the garden. It's soft and smells good. We're just doing hospice at this point and seeing how things go.

I'm so sorry. It's hard, really hard.

I made the decision and hubby resisted. Buddy should have been named "Ralley" because he's rallied back after 3 weeks!! He's still not eating enough, but he is eating some finally. I know his time to leave us is not quite now, but soon.

Oh, Becky ... I'm sorry for both you and Buddy, and I feel your pain. I'm remotely saying good-bye to MacDuff. After 15 + great years, he is declining fast. He has prostate cancer, Cushings, and a tick-borne illness in addition to arthritis. We're going to have to make a decision soon. emoticon

Buddy had a bad night...or morning. 3 o'clock he came in the bedroom crying... At first I thought he might have to go outside but quickly realized that he was in pain. Thank God for the opiate injection the vet gave me! Then I discovered vomit when I got up at 6.

I sat and gave it a good thought...this is it. Then Buddy went and ATE!! OK, one more day.

I went to the vets and got two more vials of pain meds. We're just taking one day at a time. Once hubby and I are both ready to let go then we will both say "Goodbye".

Hubby wasn't ready to quit hoping. I cancelled the appointment with the blessings of our Vet! She supports our decision and is here for us when we're ready. Won'tbe long because he's quit eating.

It's been awhile since I checked in. I've been a little preoccupied with a very sick Buddy for the last two weeks. The pancreatitis flared up two weeks ago and never left. I feel like we've been 'throwing meds to the wall" to see if something would stick. My Vet wanted to put him in a hospital, but I can't afford it. it would cost about 1500 a day, so I've been doing the best...which seems too little too late. He has an appointment with his Vet this afternoon... we are making the decision then. Pray for us please. This has been so hard.

Leisa - I love watching MacDuff, curled up, dreaming. He softly "woofs," and his paws twitch. He doesn't go fast (He doesn't go hardly at all!) anymore, so I like the idea that he's still got "wheels" in his dreams.

Our pets can really teach us a lot. emoticon

It didn't help that the poor baby had probably stepped on an ant or something that stung her right before going to the vet. She had picked at her paw the whole way there.

You guys know a lot about the different breeds. I learned a lot from your responses. I just know my little white westie is only really still when she is napping! LOL

And on second thought I have seen her moving in her sleep like she is chasing squirrels!

Right! I tried finding a Carin before Buddy ...no luck. White Schnauzer isn't recognized by AKC. We owned a black Schnauzer before Buddy. He was gorgeous and we used him for stud for many years.

A black westie would be a cairn terrier. I've seen white schnauzers, and I think they're gorgeous, but I heard that the breeders consider it a "fault." To each her own, I guess.

Welcome back!!

Buddy's grooming he came back looking like a Schnauzer...so now with a minimal investment in a table and clippers I do him!!

Yes there are white Scotties...a couple up the street have one of each!! Thus the name, Black and White Scotch! Yumm.

Alot of people have no clue about our darling breed. I have to tell them, "you know the dog on the dog food!". Lol!!

Hi all! I know I haven't been by in forever. But thought about this group today and had to share. I picked up Jersey from the vet from getting groomed and a shot. I noticed on my bill an extra $3. It was for "Pet could not stand still" Seriously??? emoticon The joke at my house is that Jersey is as ADHD as I am. Of course she couldn't stand still! She is a hyper little terrier!

Then later on our walk someone asked if she was a scottie. Really? Is it just me or aren't they supposed to be black? Just sayin...

Could you have had a power surge? That sounds scary!

My friends sent me a picture of MacDuff, lounging in his garden. What a little cutie! (I'm biased, I know.)

Buddy Checking in!

I am absolutely AMAZED!! Buddy plays now... and hasn't had ONE incident since beginning his new custom UC Davis Diet!! It's really been amazing!!

We're heading for a heat wave this week. I have everything battened down and keeping it dark and cool. I hate to run the AC so the most I can do to prevent that... the better!

I've been doing OK with this "weight thing"... not loosing, but I'm sure that's because I'm not MOVING!! I want to get on my treadmill again, but I don't remember if I told you about my treadmill speeding up suddenly and throwing me to the ground!! That was a shocker!! Good thing for the emergency key. I'm probably too heavy for the poor old gal! AGH!!!

Keep cool and I'll talk @ you later!

I got a necklace for our anniversary... with the inscription: 32 Great Years - 6-9-84 to 6-9-16. Yes, he had to make that quick call to the jeweler and they had a good laugh over the whole thing... the jeweler said that Rich was not the first one to get the dates wrong! LOL!!

About Buddy: He's been pretty good! I spent most of the day yesterday cooking chicken breasts, boiling yams, and cooking rice. I mixed up several batches and froze some. He sees the Vet next week for blood workup and see how he's doing. His poops are still not to my liking... that's a sign that not all is completely well in his GI track.

His diabetes is beginning to take it toll on his eye sight. Poor guy! He sometimes runs into things, or gets startled when something is in front of him. Such a sweet little thing.

I'm still trying to loose this dang weight. Almost given up and decided to just be happy with who I am... but that's a hard pill to swallow since I was always thin. At least I'm not being so camera shy and allowing pictures to be taken with the grandchildren. After all, they love me anyway I am.

Take care... and keep the faith! We CAN do this with the help from one another.

Becky,

I'm naughty enough that I would have gone along with it, and then at dinner said, "Darling, I don't know what you think we're celebrating, but our anniversary is in five days. I can't wait to see what you do for that!" And tried to score a double. hee hee hee

It is so cookin' hot here that our only plans are to stay inside! LOL

This morning my husband greeted me with, "Happy Anniversary!" only one problem... it's NOT our anniversary! I corrected him and he immediately made a dash for the phone book and the phone! I knew (or know) something IS UP! Anyway I gave him space by heading for the shower while he made is frantic phone call. HMMM. Not sure what's going on, but today is the 4th and our anniversary is the 9th... I'll let you know when I know! He kept insisting that I told him the 4th!! HUH?? OK... the YEAR was Eighty-FOUR. So he is sorta right! AND our friend's anniversary is FOUR days before ours! He's a man! What more do I need to say?

Enjoy your weekend. This cool air feels great! (Until I get the bill!)

Hello! It's me checking in. Not making any promises but I hope to be checking in more frequently... and sticking to 'a' program.

UC Davis sent back Buddy's evaluation and the nutrition menu for him to follow. So far, so good! He has actually licked his bowel clean 3 x a day for the past 4 days!! Scary... not like Buddy at all! Plus he hasn't had any bad days with diarrhea like he has been. I'm sure you are wondering what the diet is... here is a description:
It all has to be measured out in grams, so I won't bore you with the amounts..

Roasted boneless, skinless chicken breast
Boiled Yams (garnet)
White Long Grain Rice
1/2 teaspoon corn oil
1/8 teaspoon Iodized salt
Balance IT Canine
Nordic Omega 3 Canine

Plus I administer a B12 vitamin shot once a week for at least 6 weeks.

It's amazing to see him eat and feeling better! Side plus is you can see his poops better when picking up, because they are orange!! LOL!!

We're in a heat wave this week. Supposed to reach a high of 105 on Sunday. So staying in is the plan.

I hope all my Westie Friends are still there checking in once in a while. I know I can speak for all of us... keeping in touch really works to make this all happen. I've been a flake, and I apologize. I hope to do better.

SP is really quiet these days. I guess people are off doing things.

Enjoy the weekend! emoticon

Checking in on the Buddy Roller Coaster Saga!

I'm almost afraid to say this... but Buddy's been doing really well!! I've really made certain that he only gets his kibble and boneless, skinless chicken breast. He is doing great!

I am in UC Davis's que to have a special diet made up for Buddy, something low fat & high fiber that won't upset his diabetes or his Inflammatory Bowel Disease. My vet turned in 33 pages of information (just from the last 6 months) on Buddy for Davis to evaluate what type of diet they felt would be ideal for him. It takes about 5 weeks to get the evaluation and diet made up... then I will have to cook the special diet for him. It's will be more work, but worth it. The service's cost is $300.00, still if it works it will be worth it. I cringe when I look at what I've spent so far on vet bills just in 2016!! My Vet and I joke that Buddy needs his own network server just to house his medical record! (More truth to that then I want to admit.)

Spring has sprung here in N. Calif. Still wanting more rain and snow, but it looks like fair weather for the next week or more. Darn! You know me... I love rainy days!

March I began NutriSystem program. So far I've lost 7 pounds on the program, but I become overwhelmed when I think of how far I still have to go! Baby Steps!!

I hope everyone is well. I haven't been around lately, but I still think of you often. Keep the Faith! We can do this!
