Monday Mischief: Looking Good, Charlie

03 Apr

Charles had to go back to the vet (going to vet pictures above) to make sure all the heart medicine for his advanced congestive heart failure (see post on March 21: Charles’ 2d Chance) was OK. Jolie, of course, suffering from FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out), came for moral support. Well maybe Charles was her support, but I digress…

Charles at the Vet with Jolie butting in as usual

Dr. Buchanan said everything is looking good. We are watching his liver and kidneys and all that stuff because between the Phenobarbital, for seizures, and the VetMedIn and Lasix, for the heart, his poor little organs are under a lot of strain. But Charles does not know this, so he is as happy as a lark.(Coming home from the vet – smiling – pictures below.)

One side effect of these meds is that he is really hungry. I mean, eat the wallpaper hungry. He is not only constantly barking at us and demanding more than ever (he is a Pomeranian CHIHUAHUA as you know and currently we must place a very heavy accent on the little demanding dog part of the breed), but now he has taken to jumping up at my arm when I am in the recliner and giving a little nip if I am not listening to him (since I try hard to ignore him if I can).

We are really glad that Mr. New-lease-on-life is still with us, but we really would like to watch at least one TV show undisturbed.

He finally did conk out after all that excitement at the vet, at least for a little while.

OLD Dogs do what they are gonna do!

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    Good report all the way around, C. Stay brave! Mom is giving me appetite stimulant medicine, so I have the opposite problem from you! Yikes.

    Love and licks,

      Oh my. Mr. Nine was on that. I hope it works. I would be glad to come over and show you what hungry looks like. – Charlie
