Please send some good thoughts to my pal, Butchy.
The seizure monster will NOT leave him alone and he and his momma are struggling most bravely right now. He is a tough little guy and I hope that I can be as strong as he is. He just cannot get the right combination of medication to scare that monster away. He has a paypal button on his bloggy to help pay for his medications because his momma has sickies too and is having trouble managing all the blood work and the medicines bills.
Last night when momma took the Pea out to play tennis ball she said to me, "Now, Mango, you just be still and watch the Pea and enjoy your yard because you really shouldn't be running about."
But I WANT to play and I found MY tennis ball and brought it to the DOH and told her in no uncertain terms that it is MANGO TIME.
Look! Here is a movie of me in action (momma says she actually made it to show to the vet lady, but I think it is a great demonstration of how much better I feel).
One benefit of my hiney issues is that many of my new positions work to stretch out my back end which could use some flexibility anyway.
I can't lie to you... this was taken after an unsuccessful attempt to rise from a recumbant position. Note the deep concentration on my face because yuh, for sure I am focusing on sending the electical impulses to my extremities.
Whoops. My dangly bits are taking quite a beating from all the sudden and most forceful sits I am doing.
Now, last week, Thor sent me a homemade applesauce cake for MY birthday. Last week, right?
I didn't even see it until yesterday and look what happened to it!
Evil piggy piggy momma and master like to eat almost all of it without giving me even one bite!
I intercepted momma as she was about to stuff that last piece into her gaping maw.
GIMMIE! THIS IS MANGO'S CAKE!
What the heck? Who said HE could have any? Doofus!
That's right! All for MANGO!
Mango Man! Oh yeah!
P.S. From Momma
I do feel pangs of guilt over the fact that I am posting but not getting around to other blogs to read and comment. But I think blogland is a full circle... sometimes you need to give and sometimes you need to be given to. I am filled with gratitude by all your wonderful comments and good thoughts. I have followed many journeys of dogs and owners struggling with illness and I feel that sharing Mango's progress is important; both for myself and the community.
