Tiny Little Furry Monsters

I have created monsters! Tiny little furry monsters. When Rumpy had pneumonia, I started feeding him chicken to get him to eat. Now he insists on it. I mix it in with kibble and he eats all the chicken and most of the kibble. Otherwise he won’t eat his dog food. Now Bubba has decided … Continue reading

Taking Comfort in Stock

We adults act like we can take anything life throws at us. And while most of us can, it doesn’t mean we’ll come out the other end unscathed. I vacuumed out my car yesterday afternoon for the first time since Rumpy’s diagnosis. Why did I wait two weeks? Maybe for the same reason I didn’t … Continue reading

If Rumpy Went to Work for Me…

Friday I had a conversation with my dog. It went something like this: ME: Rumpy, I don’t want to go to work today. Why don’t you go for me? Rumpy: *blank stare*   But it got me thinking. What if I could send in a surrogate for me on days I’m just not feeling it? … 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

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

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
