Lady picked me up from my time-share family's last night. I was so happy to see her. Of course I had fun with the Critters, and I like riding in the elevator. But I was ready to get in my own bed with my Lady.
My back end is wobbly. I walk like a drunk. I lose my balance when I pee. So, it's off to the White Coats today. Lady leaves again soon, so she wants to see what we should be doing. I am not currently taking any supplements. In June, I am going with Lady back to our old city in the mountains to stay with Vicky and Nancy for Summer Camp. The government vet there is very good. He helped me more than the Delhi vet did.
That little white tart that lives above me is teasing me and causing me anguish. I have unmet needs. Lady says she'll be glad when I leave again and we don't have to listen to that yappy white fluff who teases me. 
Yes, it is still very hot in Delhi -over 110 for the entire last week, and those temps continue this week. We were out by 7:00 am this morning. Our low is 84 degrees. But I am not complaining. I have nice cool tile floors, AC at night, and a nice breeze on my balcony.  
UPDATE: Lady took me to Max Vet's. I had my annual immunizations and my nails trimmed. He watched me wobble. Basically said I'm thirteen and a dachshund. He put me back on joint supplements for life. I didn't bite anybody so I get a treat. I didn't cry with my sticks either! I got to ride in the auto rickshaw, which I like. 


  1. Oh poor you Marley and we hope the supplements help the wobble. Sending healing vibes and POTP to you. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

    Oh dear Marley; my granny used to way 'auld age disnae come alone'. Until recently I had no idea what she meant. Then MY back end got wobbly and all sorts of other things. The price we pay for having long lives! Hope you start to feel better with those supps. Oh - and aren't the autos brilliant??!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. Marley, this news is breaking my heart! We're all so sorry to hear that you are wobbly walking. That's not a good thing. You don't seem to be in pain with is great!! After my cervical surgery for IVDD, the surgeon told me to take (forever and ever) Vetri-Disc. It's a back support formula for my spine. I thank goodness I have not had any more problems. Mommy buys the capsules on line and mixes the open capsules into my food.

    I'm sorry to hear that the mutt upstairs is bothering you. If I just could get to India, I'd tell him a thing or two! No one should bother my furend.

    You were very brave getting your shots. I have to go back and get 2 more shots while here in Florida. We've been delayed getting back to NY bcuz of Grandpa Bob and his bad heart, so now I guess I can't delay in getting them. It's really hot here and we're here for another 4 weeks.

    Give Lady a big kiss from Muffin and me.

    Your sweetie,
    Lily Belle

    1. Thanks, Lily. I know you know sumpthin about back issues. I don't want to have to use my wheels again, so I'll eat the tablets -well, I licked all the cream cheese off and spit out half of the vitamin this morning. Sorry to hear about your grandpa.

  4. Oh my, that is some seriously hot weather! My peep said weebles wobble but they don't fall down. We hope that applies to you! Good job on getting a treat at the dog-tor.

  5. Marley, I haven't read your blog in a while. So much has happened! Happy Birthday! You had such a fun day with all your time share families and got great prezzies! I'm so sorry that you're wobbly. I hope the supplements help and I'm glad you are not in pain. I'm glad you get to go with Lady to summer camp in the mountains. I hope it's much cooler there. Have a great time!


  6. Hi Marley, I am sorry to hear about the wobbles again. I hope that the supplements work and with some rest, you'll be back to 100% very soon. I do remember your previous bout and Lady working to get you motivated to use the wheels. We used chicken to motivate Keppler when he was recovering from his back injury and it seemed to work for you a bit. But, with some quiet time, we hope that whole scene can be avoided.

    What a great Birthday Lady gave you! You looked like you had a great time. I'm sure you're going to enjoy your time with Lady in the mountains. You and Lady have a safe and uneventful trip to the mountains.

  7. Marley, you are NEVER gonna believe what we got in the mail yesterday!! Are you sitting down for this one? Your Christmas Card came back to us and it arrived yesterday. A whole 6 months it took to come back! It says undeliverable as addressed. Fur some reason I just think the post office doesn't want me sending you love letters in the mail! Darn it all.....

    p.s. I hope you're doing well and that Lady is having a good trip.
