It’s been 9 months already? Wow, time flies when you are a lazy dog and the summer is too hot to go outside. I have been sleeping for at least 6 of the 9 months and starting to lose some weight.
The weight loss is due to both the DM and Mom! She says I’m fat, I say I’m pleasingly plump.
My front leg is hurting more each day, but it has been carrying most of my weight for 9 long years now and probably getting like an old Buick. Arthritis in the joints, glucosamine supplements for that. Adequan shots for the DM, it’s too bad they can’t make my regular dog food out of the stuff! Oh, and I’m on a Senior food now too. UGH! This getting old stuff is for the birds.
Speaking of birds, I sit (lay) on the porch in the mornings while mom has her coffee and we watch the doves, sparrows and whatever else happens to fly in, eat their breakfast in our backyard. Loving the cool weather now.
My back legs shake bad now. I can only stand up for a few minutes, unless I’m hopping around, then I’m o.k. (unless my front leg gives out). It only happens if I’m standing still. Mom says I’m twerking. She’s silly, but that’s o.k.
I’m still happy and not in a lot of pain, just that old Uncle Arthur stuff. Rimadyl helps, some days, Tramadol others and nothing on others.
I will be back again. Dad & Mom know that my time with them may be coming to a close. We shall see about that. I have proven them wrong before, maybe I can do it again!
Keep hopping my furriends!
