Sofie: Another beautiful afternoon sitting in the leaves. Big tree sure does drop a lot of them.
Sofie had her second worming last week for those very difficult hookworms. So far, so good for Ms. Soso. Her gut seems to be getting back to normal. Now we have to figure out what new arthritis medicine to get on, since her previous one, which we stopped because her gut was ripped apart by these hookworms, is really hard on the GI tract (Previcox). She limps a great deal. I don’t know if it is her front right shoulder or coming from her neck. I do have her on pain meds so hopefully that helps. I am also trying this new thing that Mojo’s Mom gave us that provides sound waves into the area and maybe gives some relief. Testing the gut this week and waiting for the Vet to tell us what they find. Paws crossed they are gone.
My wonderful Louise, aka Lulu Belle, turns 11 today. She is just such a wonderful soul. I really enjoy her company. She is patient with the cats and tolerates Sofie and Charles very well. She loves to have Mom all to herself on morning walks and it seems like the only time that I really see her smile. Except for this picture above. She had the biggest smile that day. Usually, she is more like the picture below.
“Why are you making me sit here in front of the roses, Mom? Grump, grump, grump. Let’s just keep walking.”(Don’t my wild roses look great for late fall? They really had a second burst.) I just love this dog.
Happy 11th Birthday, Louise!!! You are the best!
There seems to be something lately about us getting in Mom’s face. We get as up close as possible to her. We like to be really really near by.
We are not always sure that she appreciates our hot smelly breathe on her, especially when she is asleep. Do you get up close and personal with your humans?
Mom bought Charles this mat. It is called a LickiMat. She thought that it would keep him busy because he is constantly begging for more and more treats and never seems satisfied. He was not impressed at all. But I sure like the peanut butter that he left in the cracks. There are many different foods that you can put on the mat, peanut butter, of course, but also just wet dog food, or pumpkin, or even apple sauce or mashed veggies. So far, when Charles licks most of it off, he wants something more substantial, like a Busybone. Mom is going to try a bunch of different things to see which ones work best. Do you have any ideas?
She actually bought another mat just for me, but I am too busy with Charles. She read that it could help me stay calmer (fat chance with that!)- Sofie Bear
