one can’t actually finish this, but we’re doing well at it, so I thought I’d retire it. 17 months ago
Yesterday was a terrible day, and we appreciated the support so much. 18 months ago
This morning Pumpkin was in terrible shape. G. and I were both crying. We took her to the hospital and they called us a couple of hours later to tell us the ultrasound showed that cancer had spread to several of her organs. They couldn’t save her. We came to the hospital and gave her a little treat and hugged and petted her, and they put her to sleep.
We both cried and cried. She was such a smart, sweet, loving dog. We had her since she was a puppy. This all came on so suddenly…she didn’t seem sick at all until last Sunday. I loved her so much. I just can’t do anything today.
I think Ginger is confused and waiting for us to bring her home. 18 months ago
It’s been a tough couple of days. I am worried sick.
She moves very, very stiffly and doesn’t want to raise her head (though sometimes she does). She sometimes seems confused and unresponsive. I hardly got any sleep last night, and we were going to take her to the animal hospital this morning (I took a vacation day.) But then she seemed OK? But by late afternoon she seemed really bad again!
She is still eating and drinking, she doesn’t have a fever, and she isn’t getting sick to her stomach, but she’s not herself.
She’s going to the hospital first thing tomorrow. I hope they can fix her. :( 18 months ago
walked them this afternoon. She likes to take one at a time, so she doubles her walking and the girls behave a little better. I walked them yesterday, and they behaved pretty badly, sniffing when they were asked no to, if you can believe it! For shame! 19 months ago
to a nearby park our little city just redesigned. It makes for about a mile and a half roundtrip, a good distance for them. 19 months ago
love love their walks, but they can’t go much more than a mile now. They’re not young anymore, and sadly carry a little too much weight (my fault, I know). So walking is not a great means of exercise for me as it once was. I can’t bear to go without the dogs. 19 months ago
Walking my dogs everday goes hand in hand with getting my own place again. I have no choice but to walk the since I’m in an apartment as opposed to a house. Regardless, I’ve accomplished this goal and my dogs are a lot happier!! 3 years ago
I find 2 long (30 minute) walks + play time are necessary for my two boxer mixes. Typically my partner takes them out in the morning, but last week he had to leave super early to I took them—-it’s one way to get your eyes open at 6am.
Need to work on training for the 10 month old b/c my arm is getting sore. 3 years ago
