Otto is doing well. Has his energy back and is ready to play. They are testing him for 5 or 6 different types of bacterial infections. They believe his spleen was the main source as its tissues were dead. I am hoping to know his test results today or tomorrow!

Thank you so much. Yeah, it's weighing heavy on my mind, but I'm trying not to think too much about it. I just want to go home this evening and spend my last night with him and be happy. He's such a wonderful dog, I'm going to miss him so much. I wish it didn't have to come to this, I wish I didn't have to do this. I'm really struggling and hoping I don't change my mind tomorrow. I need to do this, and I don't know if I can. I don't know if I'll be strong enough.

Hi.  Willie did eat some bacon, pieces of porkchop, some cat food all in one day, Sunday.  The cat food wasn't my idea - but it's right next to water bowl and Willie got a drink, then just started munching on the dry cat food.  He ate some of his regular food.  That surprised me.  Still offering him different foods every day.  I did buy some baby food and have been feeding him that - the vegetable beef.  Didn't realize how greasy that stuff was.  It leaves an orange film on the syringe that's hard to get off.  I also bought some baby rice -  the flakes.  Mixed with water, gave him that.  He wasn't too fond of it.  Bought some pumpkin pie filling, but haven't tried that yet. Been getting stuff ready for a yard sale we're having this weekend, so been busy. Thanks for thinking of us!

My weekend was so-so. It has been very stormy several days now, not very cheerful weather. Not good for painting! my Basset Otis very afraid of the storms. when it goes on for several days he gets very cranky, scared all the time. Even when it's just cloudy he looks like he's walking on egg shells just waiting for the thunder. You can see the fear in his eyes, his pupils get so HUGE. As the rain goes on he gets worse, won't eat, sad, gets very possessive of me,  growls at his brother. But it's more of a fear growl, like "I know what I'm doing is wrong but I'm just afraid!!", and then he'll run over to Babalu w/ his tail wagging and kiss him as if to say "I'm sorry, I just can't help myself"! he's so cute. I have to figure out how to post pictures.
How are all your pet baby's doing?

I'm so sorry to hear of your family member!! We just lost my nephew a couple of months ago too.....it is so sad....

No, I'm not doing so good w/ the "to do" list....but I'm working on it!!! I have been on ebay the past couple days, there is an auction there titled " Help BOB the Basset Hound" and their story will just break your heart. Maybe if you are an Ebay member you can take a look. Just type in "Help BOB the Basset Hound" in the search field and you will find it. I'm going to post a topic on it on the board, I don't know if I'm allowed to do so, but I'll try......I just want anyone who can to help this wonderful family and their beautiful BOB. Talk to you soon, Teresa : )

Willie is still about the same.  He has eaten a few dog treats and some lunch meat which is a definite plus.  Still giving him his medicine once a day.  I hope one morning I wake up and he gobbles down whatever I givie him.  Still keeping my fingers crossed.  Thanks for thinking of us.

Tex is doing wonderful today! He threw up last night, and a bit again about 2pm today, but he finally has an appetite back.  And he held down nearly everything we fed him today. We put pedialyte in his water, and gave him pumpkin today along with a special food for dogs that have this type surgery that we just found.  

I'm very glad.

I'm not there, but my sister is taking care of him for me. I'm on leg one of my trip to South Dakota!

Thanks for the help and support!

So sorry I haven't posted anything in a while.  My ex step-father passed away last week and we went to his funeral yesterday.

Willie is still about the same.  Still not eating.  He seems a little perkier, but still won't eat.  I am still syringing yogurt and chicken broth in his mouth.  Still offering him anything and everything I can think of.  Sometimes he'll put it in his mouth and kind of chew, but very rarely does anything actually go down.  I'm just praying that one day I'll offer him something and he'll gobble it down.  I'll keep you posted.  Thanks for asking about us.

I'm going up to take a mare to get bred, and to brand cows at the ranch that I work for. I'm moving the end of the month. Bad timing on a lot of counts, but he'll be with my sister and my dad so they'll take care of him. He still has runny bowels, but they aren't as runny as they are. We'll start him on pumpkin tomorrow. Do you have any recommendation for how much?  He isn't holding down the dog food, so we're giving him cooked whole grain brown rice with water, and cottage cheese with yogurt, along with dosing of probiotics.

The dog had one yesterday but it was still diarrhea.  He hasn't had one today but we cut his food back too, b/c I felt like he was getting too much. And he's thrown some up as well.  I know he'll hang on as long as he can, all for me, because he loves me. He is my best friend, but he's starting to resent me feeding him and helping him. I just want him better. He's a 70lb dog that weigh all of about 48 lbs right now.  My poor friend. I'm going to go feed him some cottage cheese.

one more question- how long should it take for something to pass through his system- i mean as in out the back door? and how much would he need to eat in order for this to happen?

The gums are pink. He threw up the dog food the vet gave me again this afternoon, so I called and asked them what to do. They said feed him whatever he will hold down. So he got some brown rice, some chicken broth and some yogurt. Tonight before I go to bed, I'll give him some more brown rice and some cottage cheese, since he held that down last night.

My poor friend. Honestly, I think had I known it'd be so hard on him to do this surgery, I might have just put him to sleep. I hate that he can't tell me how he feels or where it hurts.

the dog threw up the canned dog food this afternoon. So we'll go back to the chicken broth and brown rice. We haven't tried canned pumpkin, but it's on the list. Thanks for the help. We have to feed him via syringe as he's not eating on his own.

Doing better, but had another blow in my life. My Grandmother is in an old age home ,I saw her last Sunday and after I had left she was raped ,,by a weirdo who worked there. She's 87. The police took my Grandma's clothes and were doing tests on them. She is so scared to talk that this guy is still walking the streets. There is something wrong with the system. She said the last thing she remembers is his face right in front of hers,, then she passed out. One of the first things she said was,,"tell Mike what happened"  she is so scared ,,she said to me,,she's so sorry she even said something. So I said that did the right thing, got to keep sicko's like him away from everyone,,,lock him up,  
What a month,
Thanks Mike  H2owner

we are doing okay.. thanks.
My husband misses Dakota a ton. He found a Blue Tick hound breeder in Ohio. He is on the list for 3rd pick of the litter. The puppies won't be ready until the end of August, so I might be ready by then to adopt another furry friend.
I put our names on the hound adoption list in Frederick. I prefer to adopt a needy pup than buy a puppy. Dakota was adopted when he was 11 months old, he came with a bunch of quirks that took years to overcome, but that is what we loved so much about him.
If we did get a puppy from the breeder in Ohio, his name would be Cooper. It is a city in North Dakota. Kind of a tribute to our first love.

Just a quick note to say hi!

Bear has a little more movement, I called the vet to ask if I should incourage him to walk and he said yes.  So we have him on the living room carpet and get him to stand and walk.  He looks pretty clumsy and he falls shortly after but the carpet cushions his fall and I also make sure I'm there to catch him.  He is sitting better, has more strenght in his back legs than his front, so we are hoping it will just take time and that he will be back to normal soon.

Thanks for asking

i have heard that a female with a UTI can attract a male too. I don't have any female dogs, only when I was much younger. I only have boys now. I hope she is OK.

That's Miss Puff, our Siberian husky with the coke bottle. Our Akita, NumberNine,  is the one in my profile.  The two little hairballs are Rawhide the shih tzu and Hoss the lhasa apso.  One of the cats has passed on - the white and blond one is Pond Scum - age 23, the gray tabby is Icepick and the black and white one is Anakin.  They are ALL spoiled.  We should have some more soon - running out of places to put them.

No not windy here today, no storms either. Just so hot and humid. I didn't even mention thyroid before because she never mentioned it being low. And i thought if the vet did the blood work and it was low, the VET would have TAKEN CARE of it earlier! That poor boy suffering that long all because the one vet didn't give proper meds. And the owner isn't supposed to know all this unless they've been through it before, ya know?
I also sent that post I wrote to Bobbe as a message to her too.....in case she didn't see it on the board.
