Rumpy Went to the Vet Today

I took Rumpy to the vet today. His breathing has been worse, and I wanted to follow up and discuss next moves. Our vet said this is due to the laryngeal paralysis and partly a result of the rising temperatures. She felt the window a/c unit I installed for him is a good idea. She … Continue reading

More From Rumpy

I am now assigned to work from home. It’s great to get to be here with Rumpy and the kitties more, even if I’m working. Especially now. Rumpy has taken a turn for the worse. He still eats well and never says no when I offer to take him outside, but his breathing continues to … Continue reading

You Must Be Feeling Better?

I have been upfront and open about Rumpy’s condition: he has a tumor at the base of his heart that has grown. He has a lypoma beneath the muscle on a hind leg that is not worth removing because he also has difficulty breathing due to laryngeal paralysis. It was most likely the lar-par that led … Continue reading

All is Calm in Rumpydog Land

I want you to know that after I wrote that last blog post, Rumpy decided he now DOES want to be around me. So we’re usually in the same room. It’s comforting for me; I hope it is for him as well.   The Rumpster seems to have rallied lately. Yesterday he actually pulled me up … Continue reading

A Weekend with Rumpy

Rumpy will not stay in the same room with me. At first I thought it was the temp of the room, because the living room tends to be warmer than the bedroom. But this weekend I noticed when I entered the room where he lay, he’d soon get up and move to the other room. … 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

Tomorrow is Rumpy’s Gotcha Day!

Tomorrow is Rumpy’s 10th Gotcha Day! As we gear up for the big celebration, I thought I’d share with you a few blog posts from years past. This post is one of my favorites. It’s Rumpy’s tale of rescuing me. Here is a post from his first online Gotcha Day celebration. Here’s a post from … Continue reading

Wordless Wednesday: Photo Update

Here’s some recent pics of the gang I thought I’d share. Enjoy!  

Yes, My Dog is Stubborn

OK, Rumpy time for a walk! He’s so excited! So on goes the harness and leash. Poop bags? Check. Cookies in my pocket? Check. Keys, phone, glasses? Check. Check. And Check. We’re out the door, door checked that it’s locked. Down the steps. Rumpy pees and…… He wants to go back inside. I beg. I … Continue reading

The Best Part of My Day

Walking with Rumpy these past few days has been fun. The air is crisp and cool, and the Rumpster is filled with energy and excitement. Our walks are interesting. I am the one in charge. But I give Rumpy plenty of freedom. I set boundaries, such as no walking up in people’s yards and no … Continue reading
