When You’re Told Your Dog is Dying…

Don’t worry, I’m not offended that you won’t read this bog post. This one is for those who who will go through this as some point, and need to know there is someone out there who understands.  First you sit on the sofa and cry. Be prepared to go through an entire box of tissues. You make a … Continue reading

The Vet Said…

We’ve just come back from our follow-up with the vet. The initial exam was unremarkable. Normal temp. Breathing sounded better. His lymph nodes felt OK. Next more X-rays to have another look at that lymph node. I also asked if they’d aspirate the tumor on his leg to see if it could be a lypoma. It’s … Continue reading

The Latest on Rumpy

Rumpy continues to amaze me with his recovery.   Don’t get me wrong, he’s not well. Right now he’s lying at my feet panting. His breathing is no longer labored, but it’s still heavy. Last week I was begging him to eat anything. This morning he ate his regular dry food mixed with canned! Last week … Continue reading

An Update on the Rumpster

We’re three days out from our vet visit. Rumpy is feeling much better but, to be clear, he is still very sick. We’ve just come in from a walk outside in the yard. We went from front to back, he took a poop, and now he’s exhausted and lying on the bedroom floor. Rumpy is … Continue reading

Did Going Vegan Lower My Cholesterol?

So I told you last August I went vegan to lower my cholesterol.  Yesterday I had a biometric screening for my insurance- my employer requires it for me to get lower insurance costs. I get a basic health exam and if the health professionals find something wrong, like say high blood pressure or diabetes, I would have … Continue reading

Rump’s Visit to the Vet

So Rumpy’s condition quickly got worse, and today we went to see the vet. First, she felt him all over and was very concerned about what felt like enlarged lymph nodes. The good doctor aspirated 3 of them and was heartened to find they were lypomas. She discovered his right hind leg was much larger … Continue reading

My Fears for my Dog…

Rumpy’s health is on the decline. His breathing is more labored. He doesn’t eat as much as he used to. He doesn’t have the stamina he once did. I’m afraid he may not be with me much longer. He is an older dog and, well, none of us live forever. But why now? Maybe I’m … Continue reading

Bet Ya Don’t Read the Entire Blog Post!

Did you see this photo?  Now before you get all defensive, let’s keep it 100% here. The current president garnered 53% of the white woman vote. That’s despite his comments about grabbing women by the pussy (Saying the word pussy is the reason some women have used to dis the march. If our president can be vulgar, why can’t … Continue reading

Living with Cats

I talked about how Rumpy is such a comfort to me since the election. But there are also cats that live in this home who are keeping me on the straight and narrow. I don’t have time to wallow in anger and hurt; I have two elderly cats with hyperthyroidism who are always hungry and … Continue reading

My Dog

Much is changing with our new president making sure he returns us to 1950s America. But there is one who is not affected by it all. My dog. Rumpy still lies at the foot of my bed each night, and at my feet whenever I’m home. Rumpy still walks the perimeter of our yard each … Continue reading
