First my apologies for taking so long to write to you, but a lot has been going on with me. In November we moved into a new house, and that is great! I love all the space, and the bright sunshine from the windows.
In March things went down hill for me...I got a huge abcess on my face. I ended up getting really sick from all the antibiotics I had to take for that, but I stuck with it. Mom tried everything she could think of to help settle my stomach...it wasn't pleasant for either of us. Finally, I got to go back and see the dentist because they felt it was related to my teeth. Well, he ended up removing all but three of my canine teeth!! This was not a fun surgery, and I was in a lot of pain, and again sick from anesthesia and antibiotics. After a few days, mom found the right combination of fluids, pepcid, and clear liquids to help me feel better. You would think my story would end there, but nope. About a week later a sore came up on my arm...it had been there all along, but I kept messing with it, and it got bigger and bigger. Mom called her friend the vet, and she came over with some fake skin, and wrapped my arm up. I ended up wearing the dreaded e-collar and having my arm re-wrapped every three days for almost a month. My arm has finally healed and my teeth, or gums, are all healed, and I am feeling good.
The one good thing about this whole journey has been that I can now get canned food anytime I want it! The vets have said that I can eat hard food, and I do, but I love that I can guilt mom into giving me the good stuff. My brothers have figured this out too and now we all start swarming the kitchen a few times a day to see what will happen. Usually she'll give in, but sometimes we have to look real pitiful before she does.
I should go and try to get some canned food now! Until next time...
