Good Report, 100th Post

I got a good report from the Dogter today. Dr. Jody said I was looking good! She is going to let Momma and Dad take me outside to potty on a leash. I get to go just into the grass, do my business and come right back in. Still no steps, no jumping on furniture, no running and playing. But at least I get to walk outside instead of being carried outside like a baby!

Today is my 100th post. I am so glad that I was able to post with good news!
Whoofs & Baroos to all you's!
Pee S, The picture with me sitting in the chair is an old one. I am not allowed to do that now.

Just a smidgen better

We had some amazing weather here today. It got up to 66 degrees and the sun was shining. FABULOSSO!
Unfortunately, I couldn't go out and play. I stayed in my crate all day while I listened to my sissies baroo at stuff outside.
I will say, my pain meds are helping more now. I was having a tablet every 15 hours or so, but now they last for a full 24 hours. Ahhhh.
Thank you everyone who has checked in with well wishes. Sorry we didn't blog for a long time. After losing Lady, Momma just wasn't in the mood to help me.
Whoofs to you all!

Not All Drugs Are Bad

I don't want anyone to think I am advocating drug use, but when my pain meds wear off, things are bad. I have to wonder if I am doing any healing in my spine, or if its all just being covered with the meds. And my hips hurt when the drugs wear off.

Oh, but when they work, they're wonderful. I feel like I could run around in the yard and chase the squirrels again! I just can't get Mom to let me! She carries me out in the yard to potty and leaves my leash on when she sets me down so I can't go anywhere. Meanwhile, my Beagley sissies are running around barking at stuff. It just aint fair! Whuff.

I have also lost my job as front window watchdog. We have a parkway with a walk across the road from us and lots of people walk their dogs there. It is our job to bark at them and make sure they don't come in our yard. Momma won't let me out of my kennel to jump up on the chair to watch and bark. It jus ain fair I tell ya!

Wow, 4 months!

I guess I haven't blogged for 4 months! That's amazing. Well, its time to catch up.

As you read, my sissie Lady passed last October. We still miss her, but know she is happier on the other side of the rainbow.

I have been having back and hip problems. Momma had to rush me to K-State Vet Clinic in Manhattan, KS last week because I got down in the back. They said I had a bulging disk. This is the 2nd time. But this time, the dogter did a little more investigating because he said my hips seemed arthritic. They took x-rays of my hips and said I have severe hip dysplasia. Huh? I thought that's what German Shepherds got! My Momma said that, too.<>

The dogter said that German Shepherds are the poster children for Hip Dysplasia, but that any dog can have it. So, lucky me. No wonder my back hurts and my hips hurt! Such a bummer. The pain pills are good, though. Momma says, "Better living through science." Whatever.

So, I spend my days and nights in the crate on complete bed rest per dogters orders. Not like I want to do too much anyway, but it is kind of boring. Although, I do get fed breakfast in bed. I don't even have to go to the kitchen to eat! Hah!

Our Gramma moved in with us in Sept. Maybe I mentioned that way back. Its great. I get to hang out with her during the day and she feeds me treats and talks to me a lot. I love Gramma.

Hope all you pups are good. My Beagley Sissies are good. Just as craaaazy as ever.
