2017 came in and I didn't even notice...
Tough getting old and not hearing like I used to...

Our house guests Bella who once was a foster here, and her bff Carmin were visiting for the last two weeks and went home January 5th.
It is nice having our house get back to normal...

January 7th 2017   Our first snow fall for the year was only a little over an inch but enough for me to avoid for as long as I can!

 

 

Since the snow was dry and not very deep, Dad used the leaf blower to make some paths
even though we don't always use them when we're excited...
A couple of quick videos   HERE   and  HERE

 


This Winter has been Great...  Almost the end of February and the weather has been nice & warm 60's - 70's

Alright, it's also my morning spot as well, especially since the weather has dropped back into the 30'd today the 26th of February...

I thought Spring was here a few weeks ago when temps were in the 70'  but I was wrong...
Today March 14th, Dad wants to take pictures of me in the sleet and freezing rain that showed up last night...
Not too pleased about all of this cold!!!

The middle of May and it's sure getting noisy around here...
I do believe it has something to do with all of these weird things walking around in the grass!  No way will I mess with them but Jinx and Pippin seem to think they're tasty...



 

 

June's almost gone and the noisy 4th of July is next week. 
That's when this strange house guest EZRA will be going home.
Mom's been watching him here for about 6 days now and he's a strange dog..

I think he has a little mountain goat in his blood!!

Mom & Dad have watched me struggle with my rear legs not being what they used to be back when I could spin around in circles and walk around on my hind legs.  Guess those days are long behind me now.  Dad tried to improve on the little raised step we had going into the backyard.   As fancy as this is, I still hesitate trying to clear even one inch.  Dad & Mom also think it's mostly mental, and maybe they're right, maybe these are just senior moments!

Today is July 10th 2017
Celebrating My 8 Year Anniversary of being adopted to my last home!

Unfortunately Dad spotted a fairly large, hard lump on the right side of my neck and got worried so I'm headed to see Dr. Anderson tomorrow to have it checked out.
Dad's going to worry allot until he hears what it is...

 

 

So this morning July 11th in the office, Pippin rolls out of bed onto the floor, starts kicking and looked like a zombie for awhile.   That freaked  Dad out and even though he was fine after a few minutes he will be joining me at the vet's office this morning.    Mom's coming home from work early to help out and take Jinx along so he's not home alone.

 

I had x-rays taken, a blood test and had some fluid removed from the lump that has to be sent off for analysis and we're hoping it's not cancer. I was sent home with a bunch of meds.   Now that dreadful wait to hear the test results.

 

Pippin had x-rays taken also and it turns out he has fluid built up on his lungs with a heart murmur and also was sent home with a bunch of pills.

 

Let the healing begin especially with Dad's Visa Card!



Friday July 14th
Dad finally got the lab results of the fluid taken from the swollen lymph node in my neck..

~~~  NO  CANCER  ~~~

Thought we could rest easy but July 19th just 5 days after all the meds the swelling has returned and it seems to be even worse.   Dad's theory is it's lymphoma and the tests were negative because it had just begun.
He's having dajavue remembering it was this same time of year 9 years ago his boy Spike went through this same thing and didn't have a happy ending. He's hoping he is way off and Doctor Anderson is trying everything to help.

Dad took my picture this morning July 20th, he looks really upset!

Pippin and I went to the vet for a follow up visits.   Pippin's condition seems to have been stabilized.
Doctor Anderson gave me a shot of Depo Medrol and sent me home with more antibiotics.
This time it was Clavamox and it seems to be working at shrinking the lump and as of Sunday July 23rd, it's almost hard to find and Mom & Dad are optimistic that it does not return.  Of course we don't know what caused it.   We have another re-check Tuesday July 25th so fingers crossed!

 


July 25th 2017
Doctor Anderson said my lump is gone and just a few more weeks of antibiotics to be safe but,

Our trip to the vet today ended in sadness.
Pippin was not feeling well at all and not eating because his vital organs were shutting down.

Mom & Dad didn't want to see him suffering. 
Since Jack and I were there also, we said our goodbyes.
He was a wild and crazy boy and he knew and we knew it was time.
