Hello dear friends...it is me the Denny. I haven’t been very well lately and could use some power of
the paw to help me get better. Last year I was diagnosed with kidney disease and I already had a bit of a thyroid problem too. I have to eat special food and takes lots of pills but I have been doing okay until the last 6 weeks. Mom noticed I was just nibbling at my food and I have been whimpering a lot. So off we went to see vet because mom though maybe I had a bad toofie. He couldn’t find anything wrong with my toofies or jaw so he ordered some blood tests and they showed my thyroid numbers, kidney function and liver function were all skwiffy. On top of that ...even though I haven’t been eating much I put on weight...but we won’t talk about that !!!!!!!

Anyway .....all those wacky numbers made my vet worry so he sent me off to see an oncologist vet. Thankfully there are no signs of any cancer or tumors but I do have an enlarged liver, my kidneys have a couple of cysts in them (which is normal with my type of kidney Disease) and I have very thick bile in my gall bladder. Now the problem I have is my special food for my kidneys has a high fat content and low protein but to control my gall bladder issue I need a low fat food with higher protein. You can see the dilemma...how do we treat both when they require the total opposite thing! 

My new lady vet is going to consult with a nutritionist vet to see if they can come up with a good diet for me. In the mean time they have added more pills ...that means I now have to take 11 a day. So some power of the paw prayers would be much appreciated and hopefully the pills and diet work so I won’t have to take so many of those yucky things mom tries to disguise as treats!

Hellllllllllloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo out there

Recently our Dad had a health scare that put him in hospital for a few days - he's okay now but Mom decided he needed a break and a rest from the stresses of work. So they booked a little cottage in a place called Cedar Keys which is on the gulf side of Florida. Now unfortunately the cottage only allowed one pet.... which was fine by me - I was happy to leave the Dweeb Denny home but NOOOOO Mom said that wouldn't be right...bah humbug I said !

Now being that we are "senior citizen" pups these days (or so Mom says - personally I still think I am a young pup!) and have a strict medicine routine and yes - we tend to go boom and fall down a lot - we needed someone who we could really trust to look after us and pick us up occasionally. Mom could only think of one person she trusted enough and that was our second Momma - Miss Dawn (My fiancee Katies Mom).

So the Mom paid for a airplane ticket and in no time Momma Dawn was winging her way to sunny warm Florida :) Mom and Dad left for their long weekend and needless to say it stormed the first two days they were there which was good as it meant Dad got lots of resting done. Momma Dawn took perfect care of us and of the coarse the Dweeb loved all the extra cuddles and belly rubs she gave him - he's such a suck up! Needless to say - we were the perfect well behaved gentlemen too :)

PS - we think Momma Dawn should go into the house/dog sitting business - she could go visiting so many places and meet so many furbabies  (although the Princess Katie might not to be happy about that:)
Momma Dawn, Me and the Dweeb - okay Mom - he's names Denny - but he'll always be the Dweeb to me !

Out and about on a sunny day

Mom has been pondering over what park she can take us old pups to that doesn't have steps and doesn't require a lot of walking - then she remembered a small park along the the St Johns rivers and off we went. It doesn't have the greatest beach but we did get to see some pink spoonbills which was pretty neat and of coarse we got to read and leave lots of pee-mail.

Guess who !

YES ! We are still around - getting on in years and slowing down but we are still both super cute and very modest....... ga woof ga woof.

Both me and the Dweeb brother of mine have arthritis now in our hips and back legs so we don't get out and about much anymore and the old ancient Mom has back issues and can't lift us in and out of the car by herself - she can't even pick up the ramp she bought to help us get in the car - really - what use is the woman !

We spend our days snoozing, driving Mom crazy and patrolling the yard because Mom being the dumb dumb she is ...loves squirrels and raccoons and insists on feeding them - so it was no surprise that Mrs Racoon bought all 4 of her babies visiting recently. They are now ALL daily visitors and every morning Mom makes them a smorgasbord of fresh bananas, apples, oranges, strawberries,  peanuts and sunflower seeds.

Mom has even given them all names. Of coarse there is Mrs Raccoon, Then there is Whiskers - she is always wiping her whiskers. Then there is Flopper - Mom called him this because as soon as he gets on the food table - he flops down and covers everything up - basically saying "its all mine". Then there is groundhog - for some reason he doesn't like to climb and stays on the ground (we didn't get a photo of him today as he's very shy) - Mom puts a plate of food out on the ground just for him.  Lastly there is Pavarotti who always looks like he is singing- He cracks Mom up with his antics.
