   MeiDei  Just had another thought - click on the title of the video in the upper left hand corner, you should see it underlined and then connect - try and see if that works for you.

   Ole buzzard  I haven't posted in a while. Here's a recent picture of the Puggies. Mabel has been having a hard time with her diabetes. She is blind now (has been since last May ) and has lost seven of her 17 pounds. We took her to a specialist at the University of Georgia vet college who recommended a new hypoallergenic diet. In two weeks, she has gained almost a half pound back, so we are hopeful. Here we have Toby keeping watch over his harem from the chaise, and in the bed, clockwise from lower left, Sally, Winnie, and Mabel.

   Escaped commieny  So glad you stopped by with an update, Shiloh sends Mable a Hug.
What about your comment for the pug and cookie? 12/26

   MeiDei  Buzz: have any of your pugs ever suffered from "reverse sneezing"? It's a condition that can crop up, last for a day, an hour or weeks & will usually rectify itself - but so scary when it happens to the little loved one. In 42 years of having small breed dogs I've never seen or heard of it, but my Chug now has it. Our Vet steered me to a youtube search, rather than an emergency visit.

   Escaped commieny  My Beagle gets this, but only lasts a few minutes, the vet says it is important I don't show signs of panic, as that transmits, so I just say it's OK and don't get bug eyed, don't show your baby fear.

   MeiDei  Thx EC - we are calm with her. I covered her nose, to force her to mouth breathe, & it stopped - you learn something new every day : ) Pugs, Beagles, Chihuahuas, Terriers & some Spaniels are susceptible vs. larger breed dogs. Our Chug is 10 years old and this is her first episode - day 4 now. If it worsens or she develops other symptoms the Vet will see her. She's quite herself otherwise, no change in eating or friskiness.

   Balogreene  Our Shih Tau does this occasionally, we just love her through it. Our vet says it's no big deal if it doesn't go on very long.

Buzz, love your pic. We had a deaf Cocker Spaniel, we got late in her life. She knew some signs (we learned ) but, when you did them, she turned her head so she couldn't see. A finger to the lips meant shush, a hand movement meant down, etc. She just refused to see them, and did what she wanted. I don't know what a blind dog will do, but they'll figure a way around you : )

   Ole buzzard  Got back from a routine visit to the vet yesterday. It appears the new diet Mabel is on is working. She has gained another 1.4 pounds, putting her back to 11.5.

   StormCnter  I haven't been to this Wall very much, so what I am mentioning might be already well-discussed. If so, I apologize. Did you know we can track our mixed breed's DNA? Well, full-bloods, too, but the mixed are what interests me. At Christmas, our son-in-law's sister told of having her "mutt"'s DNA traced and how pleased her vet was with the information. Right now, I'm awaiting the results of our female blue-heeler mix. The tests can be ordered through Amazon. They are about 70 dollars.

   Balogreene  We had greyhounds for a lot of years. There are databases that track them. For pie teeny rescue dogs, I just don't care.

   BirdsNest  While Hagar was in Hospice House he had 2 visits from therapy dogs. The first was a lovely lady with 2 Golden Retrievers. One was 4 yrs old the other was 14. The older dog went immediately to Hagar's side and started licking his hand. she was a bit rough because he yelped in pain. She really didn't want to leave him. They were both beautiful. I enjoyed them maybe more than he did. I miss having a dog but at this time of my life there is no room for one. Yesterday he had a visit from a Sheltie. "Cory" was way more interested in the bird, Melvin who was in a cage on the table. He has birds at his house but he was quite enamored with Melvin. I took Melvin because Hagar hasn't seen him in awhile. And because Hagar is being transported to a nursing home here on the Shore and I don't know if they will allow him to visit. Anyway it was a nice visit, the Sheltie was sweet and it's always good to pet a dog.

   Balogreene  Our Greyhounds went to visit my grandmother, and tho she knew them, they scared her.

On the other hand, our very new Shih Tzu went to visit my mom. She was so scared walking down the hallway, and so excited to see her grandmother! Mom really appreciated the visit. I think even trained therapy dogs can be temperamental.

Therapy dogs are often paid for by the organization supplying them, so they might not be much of an expense, If Hagar likes them.

Give him my hugs and kisses, and well wishes.

   MeiDei  Bird, my mother was in a rehab/nursing home for a while & I was surprised & delighted they allowed animals to visit; in fact one lady's son's dog made the rounds & it was just the family dog not a therapy trained animal. I hope Melvin is allowed to visit Hagar regularly!

   FlatCityGirl  Therapy dogs are WONDERFUL! I was visited by a Boxer in May when I was hospitalized. It was like someone knew that I have Boxers and love them.

   Balogreene  This is another reason I love to work from home. Uki has to cuddle as long as Freya lets her.

   Balogreene  In about '75 I got a black cat. He was cat, dog, human all rolled into one. Since then someone in my family has had a black cat! I don't know why they are so special, but they are. Freya and her brother Ebon were with their mother and siblings under my boss's bushes. During a horrendous rainstorm, he noticed the mother and most of the kittens were gone. He eventually brought these two in. When we took them to the vet, they were 6-7 weeks old and each weighed less than a pound. We gave them a bottle every two hours, then four, then six, then, they were allowed to eat real food, and join the gang.

It's funny, i fed Freya, Kelly fed Ebon. Now Freya thinks I'm the bee's knees. And, she is in every way a black cat.

   RedWhiteBlue  I had a black cat also. They ARE special. One day he showed up on my back deck and wanted to eat the feral cats food and he started pushing a chasing, swatting at the ferals so he can get to the food. He was the meanest cat I've EVER seen. Well, just the like the rest of the feral2 (14 ) he got trapped, neutered and returned to us. We didn't see him for about a week and all of a sudden he jumped up on the deck (I thought this is it for me! ) and as soon as he got on the deck he started to smooth up to me and then he threw himself on the deck and showed his tummy for me to stroke him...that was it. He strolled into the house and never looked back. He NEVER, ever went near THE DOOR AGAIN. He wanted to be an indoor cat forever. He figured he had enough of the outdoor life. He slept with us and was the best cat. I miss him something awful. He was soooo friendly to my unfriendly cat but he never won him over. We still have the beautiful tuxedo cat but we lost the all black one last year. He was older than we thought. Heart problems, which the doc said is very common with cats. SIGH!
