Aww sorry to hear about your pup. :(

I hope they manage to help him and you get to spend a bit more time with him.

You know this is MLC when you have played emotional hot potato with a pair of crotch-less tights.

Well, lots of ups and down in this week with our pup.

He was hospitalized for 2 days for iv fluids/meds. That helped greatly.  It seems to be vestibular disease.  He is making some really good progress.  We have follow up with the vet tomorrow. He is eating and drinking on his own. He is making it up and down stairs,  which he did today for first time since it came on. So good news to report  :)

He had his follow up with the vet.  He is doing very well. He even took it upon himself to walk to the back as if to go around to thank everyone.  The tech who took care of him that weekend was in tears to see him doing so well. He is now on 24/7 spoiling diet. We are blessed that he has come through this.

My garden is coming along. I put a cage around my blueberries to keep out birds this year.  It's a success!! Just harvested a pint worth. Omg...so much better than store bought!! Tomatoes are also coming along. Harvested a few of those too.

The pup is still doing well. He is a little slower, but is alert and now practically no head tilt anymore. I just ordered rubber treads to put on wood deck stairs so he won't slip now that I restained them.

We have just gone into Winter here, so it's lovely to hear of Spring tomatoes, I'm already looking forward to it being warm again!

Update: the pup is doing well. He is trying to mix it up with his fur brothers, but he cant keep up anymore. The youngest seems to sense this and will purposefully play just with him. (He is almost twice the older one's size and fast as lightning) He allows the old man to catch him. It is truly heartwarming to see the love he has for his older fur brother. Dogs are very sensitive souls.  I have made an inkprint of his paw and have made an appointment with a tattoo artist to do that with his name. This dog has had been a huge part of my life and was there for me when I most needed it.

One of my distant friends, who lives in another country, and knows about the whole A mess messaged me the other day. Had done some internet sleuthing and found out the Karma bus had arrived for OW. Asked me if I wanted to know the details. For a moment I smiled, but then it struck me....no, I really didn't want to know. I didn't care. I long ago gave up the obsessive searching. I did not want that back into my life anymore. Did I finally reach the nirvana of indifference? It has taken a chunk of my life to reach this summit.  My life is quiet and mostly happy. I do not want to ride down the rabbit hole again.  So, I asked this friend to not ever give me an update again. They promised me to abide by my wishes.

Good on the pup and the brothers! There’s an extra bond when a dog helps you through as an LBS I think. The paw print is a great idea!

Ah so that’s where the karma bus is! Well good for you reaching this stage and on your friend for upholding your wishes.

So glad your life is quiet and (mostly) happy. You deserve it
