My Progress and Tagged

Thank you for all your well wishing. I am still recovering. I still get restless at times, I am still drinking loads of water and pee loads. Just when jie jie thought she could slack a bit and can be excused from bringing my down to pee late at night before I sleep and waking up early in the morning, like what she have done for the past few days, I am found soaked in my urine again this morning.

Jie jie was furious when she found out that mummy has given me 1/3 of the human Panadol the day before when she was not at home. She told mummy not to do it again as human Panadol might cause liver failure in dogs if overdosed. Mummy still insisted that it is the right thing to do as my panting was getting her on her nerves and I did stop panting for a while after taking the pill.

I had a bad diarrhea yesterday. It was so bad that my legs became so weak that I was almost sitting on the ground while I poo but luckily, the diarrhea stopped after I am being fasted for 6-7hours.

I don't stand with my tail down and pant now but I will pant in laying position instead. I will stare at the door and pant and pant and pant.

Then I will move nearer to the door and continue to pant some more. I will also move around to different spots to pant.

Jie jie ask me what I was staring at and open the door for me but I didn't want to go out of the room.

I went back to the vet last Monday. The vet didn't think that I needed any blood test and when jie jie complain about my panting, he prescribed a stronger dose of muscle relaxant that will help to "knock me out". The vet suggested 1 to 3 doses of the medication a day or when necessary. Jie jie didn't want me to get too dependent on the medication and will only give it to me if I pant for too long and will not sleep even when the air conditioning is switched on. Jie jie predicted that daddy is going to jump when he see the Utility bill this but... daddy says that so long as it can help me sleep, we can on the air conditioning for as long as we want.

I still get to go on outings. Jie jie believe that the best way to speed up my recovery is to keep me happy but she won't let me walk too much and also will not let other dogs get near me in case any of them try to play rough with me.

Here are some pictures taken over the last few days.

Jie jie says this is the Doofus face that Joey says Tanner has but I am a prettier Doofus. Don't you think so?

Me, having some sun tanning. The rope around my neck was given to me by mummy. She got it from a temple. This rope is made of strings with 5 different colours. The older generation, being superstitious, believe that a kid (that's me, in this case) will fall ill when being said to be cute or pretty by too many people. I am supposed to wear the string till it drop off on its own and I will be free from illness after that... eh... jie jie let me wear it to make mummy feels better.

At the field opposite our house with Chilli.

I was so bored as jie jie and Chilli's mommy were both busy throwing the ball for Chilli to fetch.

Happy Chilli. She loves to play with balls, any kind of balls.

Chilli and her prize possession.

This is taken at the pet shop at the swimming pool. As jie jie was busy fending off other dogs from getting near me, she did not take much pictures from this swimming trip.

I have a set of pictures taken at Dogoholics Cafe with Chilli and Bi Bi when we went there to celebrate my barkday. I will do it over the weekend.

I need to rest for now. I will update again soon.

Before I go, I was tagged again by my buddy, Chilli, to tell 7 things about myself. So, here we go,

1. There was twice that I nearly crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Once was when I was a 2.5 mths old puppy. The vet suspected that I have some sort of brain virus. The second time was when I was injured last August. The vet say that I am in severe pain and I will never be able to walk again and suggest for me to be PTS.

2. I have spent more that SGD10,000 on medical bills over that last 9 years. More than 70% of it are spent over the last 4 years because of my spinal injury.

3. I love to eat fresh fish and I eat only fish treats.

4. I love to bath. I bath at least twice a week and I will go to bathroom to wait for my bath.

5. Jie jie is the only person in my family who will impose punishment on me when I misbehaved but I still love her more than any other humans in my family.

6. I rank my human according to my liking for them. I stick to the human I like best all the time. When she is not home, I will stick to the next in rank and I will only go to my least preferred human when all the rest are not home.

7. I never like to sleep on beds, be it human's or my own. I love to sleep on water cushion as they are cooling.

Alright, enough for now. I am very tired and I need to rest.

Hey Snowball,
We're happy to see you are doing just a bit better. You look so happy in your pictures. Give your Mama a big thank you kissie for the prezzie she sent to Mama. It arrived today & Mama can hardly wait to try it. We'll let you know how it turns out. We see you have your cute overalls on. Are the legs too long on those?? or do you like to roll them up?? Please let Mama know so she can shorten your new pair if you want. Also, it looks like there is a pocket of some sort on the right leg? can you please send a picture of that? we didn't see that on the pictures you sent to us. Sending lots of Wirey Zen your way to make you feel better.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers
