Life is Like a Box of Dawg Doo

It's been awhile again.  Mom just doesn't feel like blogging.  She still misses Ziggy so much.  After he died it took the blogger out of her. 
Now we have more bad news.  That's another thing - we don't like to just write about bad things but that seems to be what 2010 is about in my dawg house.  Natty isn't doing well.  We knew from the very beginning that he had a bum ticker but we thought it wouldn't catch up to him for a few years - he's only 1 for goodness sake!  He's had a couple of "attacks" in the past two weeks that my mom witnessed, who knows how many others he may have had.  He went to the VET today and they took pictures of his heart and it's VERY big.  I thought having a big heart was a good thing but, evidently, there is a difference between a big heart and an enlarged heart.  So the future is uncertain for our black & white boy. 

We hope the blood pressure medication (guess it tastes really bad!) and baby aspirin help but for now we will savor every moment we have with him.

So sorry to hear that about Natty. We know how hard it is to lose a loved pet and this must be very hard for all. Tell Mom it just takes time. And sometimes it might help to blog too.

Hugs from all of us.

Sorry to hear about Natty! We agree with the OP Pack. It is hard & it takes time. Sometimes just staying connected helps too.

We will purr got sweet Natty! It is so unfair when a young pet develops bad problems! We know it is hard for Mom to blog, but sharing Natty and Ziggy's stories will help!

Your Mom is right! Life is like a box of dawg doo.
I am sorry to hear that your kitty brother is not doing well. I have my paws crossed for him. Wow...I thought a big heart was a good thing too. I hope Natty's heart shrinks soon.
My G said to tell your Mom that she hasn't been blogging either. She's been too busy. The nerve!
I hope your dawg doo turns into dawg treats real soon!!
love,

AH POOR NATTY AND SO VERY YOUNG TO HAVE A BAD HEART. WE HOPE THE MEDICATION HELPS A LOT. I DO NOT KNOW HOW YOU WOULD ASK A ONE YEAR OLD KITTY TO TAKE IT EASY.

When it rains, it really seems to pour. We're sorry that 2010 hasn't been a good year for you and your mom and we're especially sorry to hear about Natty's health condition. Life never seems to be fair -- first he was born/left outside as a feral with no loving human contact and now that he has it, this happens. Big hugs to all of you and we really hope you guys have a lot of time left with him.

We're rescue doggies, but our grandpa has kitties and our mama has had lots of kitties in the past, so we're praying for your precious Natty. If Natty's medicine tastes bad, maybe your mom can do what our grandpa does for his kitty: hides his kitty medicine in shrimp. Real shrimp though, not cat food shrimp. Best wishes,

Jed & Abby
