Pupdate

It's almost the 3 week mark since we lost our T-Bone.  I still think of him daily and miss him terribly. I finally have his ashes back and he's in his final resting place here at our cabin in WV.  We decided we'd keep him up here as it was his favorite place, and he never got to see our new house, so WV was home.

Sarge and Stella are coping just fine.  You'd almost think they don't miss him.  Sarge has begun to fill in T-Bone's shoes by staying close to me.  He's my new shadow.

We were back in South Carolina the last full week of October and the pups had their annual check up!  Our vet confirmed Stella has an injured ACL.  She's still limping from time to time, but we are keeping her rested, loading her up with supplements and giving her some Rimadyl to help with pain/discomfort.  We will be ready to move in our new house right before Thanksgiving - so, when we are back we will try the laser therapy our vet does in hopes that we don't have to do surgery.  So, send her well wishes that we can remedy her injury without surgery.

Sarge checked out great.  He's been getting a little slow on the stairs from time to time, so I mentioned that to our vet.  He's already taking Ligaplex and Glucosamine, so we added some Omega-3 to help with joint support.  The joys of aging!

They got their rabies and kennel cough vaccines, so they are good to go!  They had a great report on their overall health, so I'm a happy bulldog mom!

Me and the pups were up in WV for Halloween (Will was down in SC still for work).  I hardly ever plan in advance, but this year I did.  I ordered costumes in September!! T-Bone was going to be the Cat in the Hat with Sarge and Stella as Thing 1 and Thing 2!!  I was so proud of my idea!



I even sported the Cat in the Hat costume so we could still be a trio.

Then, I had Sarge model as Cat in the Hat!! Isn't he precious!


When looking through some old pictures, I realized I dressed the pups up last year to match too! Weren't my WVU football players and referee cute?


Not a whole lot else going on.  Just anxiously awaiting the move!!! Yay!!

SmartVest Review & CF Appointment

Well, here is the long awaited official review of my new SmartVest SQL.  I don't have any current or updated vests to compare this too, so my feed back is based upon what I like/dislike versus the old and out-dated vest.

Pros:
Weight - it is MUCH lighter than my ancient Hilrom Vest.  By all means, it isn't light but definitely a great improvement from my older model.  I can at least carry it myself!Comfort of vest - the fabric is much softer and less scratchy when wearing it.Technology - it has a digital screen, so I can set the time and know for sure how long I'm using it (the old one had a knob to turn).  Also, I can set different programs based on how long I want to use it, etc.  It's quieter!!  Will still doesn't enjoy watching TV with me while I vest, but I don't have to turn the TV to its max volume!  And, the dogs aren't scared of this one as much!There is only 1 hose...so I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…

CF Updates

I had my quarterly CF appointment on August 9th.  I left that day for WV, and forgot my notebook so I couldn't share all the numbers until I was back home.  And now, I'm home...watching the eclipse :)  It just happened, we were at 99% totality and it was pretty amazing to see!

So, here are the PFT results:

                          8/9/17                5/9/17               8/16/16                8/4/15
FVC                  101%                   99%                  99%                     94%
FEV1                  89%                   87%                  88%                     83%
FEF25-75%        61%                   62%                  64%                     57%

I'm happy! Glad that the FVC went over 100, just got to work on that FEV and get it back in the 90s.   I was on my 4th week of Cayston and feeling good for the appointment.

I did go early as I had to have my glucose test done - Yuck!  I'm sure that will be fine.

Nothing else to really report.  BMI is…

Pupdate

My little bully babies are growing up.  Sarge & Stella turned 6 at the beginning of July and T-Bone turned 8 at the end of July.

We celebrated Sarge & Stella's birthday at home with some special treats from the local pet store.  T-Bone got to be at his favorite place on his birthday (our cabin in WV).  Unfortunately I was a bad dog mom and forgot his birthday hat and treat, but he got extra loving and sang to multiple times.

T-Bone had his bi-annual check up just before his birthday and had a good report.  We are changing his eyedrops due to the formula change in what he was using - it was making his eyes red and itchy. And then, in his ear (not the one that just had surgery) we noticed a tick like thing in one of the folds. He got very irritated with us when we messed with it, so thankfully his appointment was the next day, so I figured I'd let them piss him off.  Turns out, its not a tick.  The vet said it looked just like the mass that he saw in his other ear cana…
