Back in October we lost Seek, my dad’s black and white husky.  Seek was with us for over half my life.  It was hard, but she went quickly and gave my dad kisses goodbye.  Seek was a talker, a lover, and the queen of my dad’s house.  As a dog owner you always know that someday the inevitable will happen, and you just take it when it comes.  It took some time, but a house without a dog doesn’t seem…

Happy 4th Birthday Bacio!

Happy 4th Birthday Bacio!

How time flies.  It seems like not too long ago I was on the phone with my aunt, telling her that I was considering getting a second dog.  My aunt fosters for her local shelter, so I told her to let me know if they had any Great Pyrenees looking or lighter colored fur, younger, male dogs coming through their shelter.  I wanted a Pyrenees because they had white coats and at least this way the dog hair all over…

‘ello luf. Summer is here in full force.  Finally got the AC window units in and running, the dogs are much happier.  Yuki was surprisingly more tolerant of the heat than Bacio.  Maybe because she can comfortably lay on her back, legs spread, showing off her goodies to the invisible people in the sky…. or anyone walking by. I had been sleeping on the couch before the AC was running because my room was waaaayyy too hot.  I noticed Bacio…

5 months post FHO and running fine!

5 months post FHO and running fine!

I know I know, I haven’t updated in a long long time.  Things have gotten pretty busy over here. I have been working 3 jobs this year in order to subsidize the costs of Bacio’s surgeries and therapies.  Now that the weather is warmer work has been busy!  In addition to that I’ve had some things going on with friends and family.  So please please accept my apologies for not being as prompt with my updates and comment responses. That…

Blood work is good!

Blood work is good!

I just got off the phone with Dr. Andy and Yuki’s blood work is all clean and good.  No signs of any infections, failures, or diabetes.  Also heart worm negative.  I find that pretty amazing since Yuki is a mastermind at finding anything edible when I’m gone, and even chews up non edible items.  I ran the tests mostly to make sure her kidneys were still doing good since she tends to get into mischief and kidney failure in animals…

Three months after Femoral Head Ostectomy

Three months after Femoral Head Ostectomy

Tomorrow is April 18th, on January 18th, three months ago, Bacio went his for his FHO surgery on his right hip.  His hip dysplasia is so severe it was pretty much a flip of the coin deciding which leg to operate on first.  With all the set backs, falling, and stubborness we’ve gone through with Bacio, we’re finally seeing major improvements.  I have to give a HUGE thanks to Integrative Pet Care for the progress we’ve made.  In fact, Bacio…

Two Months After FHO Surgery, Recovery Progress

Two Months After FHO Surgery, Recovery Progress

Hard to believe it has already been two months since Bacio’s FHO surgery.  I remember being so scared, anxious, and nervous driving him to the vet.  I knew what I was doing was in his best interest, yet I was still concerned.  For newer readers that may not be familiar with Bacio, he was diagnosed with hip dysplasia at a year old, but never showed signs of pain.  I held off on anything invasive until he showed some signs of…

First Therapy Session After FHO surgery and fall

First Therapy Session After FHO surgery and fall

Yesterday was Bacio’s first day of school therapy.  I was excited about, more so than him.  We braved through the wet snow storm to get there, even though it’s only 5-10 minutes from our living quarters.  This session was a double session.  We started off with laser therapy.  The laser therapy stimulated the cells in his muscles and bones.  It helps the body “wake up”, so they can start healing, building new tissues, all that fun stuff… I wonder if…

Falling down the stairs, Post FHO

Falling down the stairs, Post FHO

After Bacio took his tumble on Wednesday morning, I started panicking about whether or not he tore a ligament or something of the sort.  Many folks tried to keep me calm and told me to wait a day or two, that maybe he was just sore from the fall.  Well I didn’t see any improvement the following day, and contacted a vet friend.  His advice was to get him checked out just in case. Today we stopped back in at…

The New Year Plans…

The New Year Plans…

First, lets start with a big Happy New Year to everyone out there.  Hope this year is even better than the last.  Maybe a year without predicted apocalypses will make people more calm.  2013 will bring some changes for my dogs and I.  The last two posts about Bacio’s hips (Background story here, and X-ray and surgery consult here) have led me to make the decision to have his first FHO procedure done.  I called the vet yesterday and have…
