Monday Mischief: Chuck’s Special Treat

Charles here. I want to tell you about my day. Once a week, Louise and Sofie go for a play date with Sonya and her pack for a few hours. That leaves me home with Mom and the silly cats. I get sad when my sisters leave but Mom always gives me something special to chew on while they are gone. I am a really good chewer and make quick work of every chew treat she gives me. Then I pine until the girls return. What is your favorite chew treat?

Monday Mischief: Goblins & Ghouls

Keeping 3 dogs quiet when people keep coming up to the front door of the house is a major feat. (Keeping Sofie quite, ever, is a big job.) I put the ‘baby’ gate at the top of the stairs to keep them away from the door, but they still can look over the ledge and watch the action. Charles actually came through the bars (like the cats do) on the side. I guess I will have to block that section too next year. You can see Sofie hiding behind the fountain watching me. I am sure it doesn’t help that the skeleton dog and cat are outside the front windows. Looking out the side windows which have prism glass, I would bark too.

Monday Mischief: The Lil’ Devil

Charles, the Mugwump, here. I need to talk to you about the trouble I am having with my humans. Being so adorable, as I am, and only 15 lbs., everyone wants to dress me up. Case in point, this little devil costume that Peanut bought me for Halloween. Now, I am not complaining (too much) because I get tons of attention that the other dogs don’t (because I look so darn cute)…. but REALLY… the Devil?

Shouldn’t she have made me “Conan the Barbarian” or some other superhero? Mom says she had to talk Peanut out of turning me into ‘sushi’ for Halloween. Oh well. I guess the Devil isn’t that bad after all.

Monday Mischief: Glow In The Dark Dogs

IMG_1890

It is getting dark earlier every day and sometimes Mommy doesn’t get to walk us until after the sun goes down. She is afraid that zombies and cars are going to hit us, so she has us flashing and shining in the dark. How do you stay safe when walking in the dark?

Monday Mischief: Bloody Boo To You

Mom has started her Halloween decorating. She is debating whether she needs to buy more skeleton dogs because there are 3 of us. What do you think?

We think she has enough scary stuff already. Do you know the name of the plant that Sofie is chewing on? It’s called ‘BLOOD GRASS.’ Ha Ha Ha Ha. It is invasive and will soon take over everything if we let it. Sort of like us. We animals at the DogDaz Zoo sure take over everything. And that’s the way we like it.

More decor to come as the month rolls on.

Monday Mischief: Pennywise & Clownfoolish

Hello Blog Friends – We found some very interesting things on our walk today that I want to tell you about.

We found a red balloon, which we learned means that there are clowns in the storm drains. We think that is just silly. The kids told us the clown’s name is “Pennywise.” We think Pennywise may just be clownfoolish. I think we will stay away from the storm drains for a while anyway. Mom says they are dangerous for dog paws and best to be avoided if something is going to grab you and pull you in.

Then we found an Eastern Box Turtle walking across the road. We wanted to play with it but Mommy said ‘No.’ She always says ‘No.’ These are common turtles in our area and best left alone unless they are in danger. Around here you have to be careful because the car in front of you may stop for what appears to be no reason and you will find it is to let the turtle cross the road. That makes me think of a joke: “Why did the turtle cross the road…. to get to the other side. ” Bark Out Loud, I am funny!!!

Monday Mischief: Treating Pancreatitis

It all started 2 weeks ago Wednesday night with Louise throwing up, twice. Then the smelly gas started. It was so bad all night that I had to move her to another room. Louise rarely throws up. Her tummy was grumbling and making weird noises, which it does sometimes with her colitis. But this was different. She was refusing to eat, which she just doesn’t do. She was mopey and blue. I made her favorite chicken and rice. No luck. The other dogs were sniffing her behind a lot, which they do when her Perianal Fistula Disease is acting up.

When she refused her breakfast Saturday morning, I called my usual vet. But it was Saturday morning and he was packed, so he said to go to the emergency vet. Before doing that, I called the cats vet (it’s a long story why I have 2 different vets) and luckily they were able to fit her in.

After waiting almost 2 hours (Louise was a doll, as usual), they did blood work and gave her fluids and some other stuff. They put her on Metronidazole (Flagyl), which is really hard on the system. She was not herself.

On Tuesday the vet called (while I was in the middle of grocery shopping, so you know I only heard half of what she said). She is a new vet to the practice, I had not met her before, and she is really nice and spent a lot of time explaining her diagnosis to me (while my ice cream was melting). She ran this special blood test (SPEC cPL) that showed significant pancreatic inflammation (high normal is 200 ug/L and Louise is 1,369). All the other blood work was normal. The Vet added Clavamox (Oh My Dog that is expensive) and some Spleen Support Formula on top of the Metronidazole.

In the last 2 weeks, I have researched the heck out of Pancreatitis in dogs. High-fat diets are one of the main things that they blame pancreatitis on. Since Louise has been on Z/D ultra (19% protein/14% fat) exclusively for years and never gets table scraps or garbage, it is hard for me to believe this is diet based. Certain conditions may predispose dogs to pancreatitis and I am thinking that it is just a mix of genetics and her other health issues.

Getting 5 pills into Louise at every meal has been a challenge. When she first got sick I ground them with some white meat chicken and wet food in the blender. I usually use Peanut Butter to give the dogs pills, but that is off limits because of the fat issue. After a few meals Louise started to refuse the mash. So now I wrap each pill in some cooked chicken breast and gooble gooble gooble. She is happy to eat again. Louise loves chicken.

We go back to the vet today to redo the test, so hopefully this bout has passed.
