Furrends, I apologize for not writing for so long. Here's an update. Lady's been in five cities since I last wrote. We're home now until the end of the month. I'm still pudgy. We've been trying really hard, too. Lady has restricted my table food and treats and put me on (oh the shame) Obesity Chow. Last week after her trip, she noticed my hair was thinning, and I still have spots. My energy level and enthusiasm are limited. And my hearing is bad. So, to the vet's we go. I had a medicated bath. It cost more than Lady's pedicure, foot massage and head oil massage put together -$20! 
So, yesterday, I had to go back to the vet for another bath and a blood test. The vet suspects I have hypothyroidism. The symptoms fit. So, the bath part is not so bad, but the blow-drying drives me nuts and scares me. Then the nail clipping. I tried to pull off the muzzle and tried to nip the vet assistant. Another assistant and Lady had to hold me. She kept apologizing. So, that's not enough, we had to go into "the room" and lie on my side on the cold hard table. Lady fussed at the vet because he couldn't find the vein and kept sticking me. On my third leg he had success. I think Lady scared him. He slowed down and took his time before he stuck me again. Lady kept apologizing. We should get the results back on Monday.
Lady felt so bad for me that she broke my diet and gave me cheese.
I'm home in my own bed with my Lady. I have forgotten my no good very bad day.


  1. I hope they find the problem and you can just take a tablet or something. Weight control there anything worse? Glad Lady sorted out that vampire and you're home with cheese.

    SHE says $20 is CHEAP--we'd be in the 3 figure area.

  2. We are so sorry about your day and hope the bad vet figures it out soon.

  3. Poor you.We so hope you are better soon and they can sort you out. Sending healing vibes and POTP.
    Best wishes Molly

    Oh dear Marley that is not good at all! Still, at least there were the snuggles to ease the memory. Keeping you in prayers for best diagnosis and easy management hereafter. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
