My dog is now a senior

Nitro is 9 years old now. Oh my god! 9! How did he get here?

I rang his vet this morning. I wanted to check when his next check up is due.

She told me to bring him in in april. He gets a check up every six months. She said if I am worried about him to bring him in sooner.

She asked me if he’s losing weight, I said, no, quite the opposite. I think he’s gained some weight.

I’m not actually worried about him at all. He does have a little lump on his ear, its like a wart, but the last time he was at the vets I got her to check it. She said it was nothing and if he was ever under anastetic she’d remove it then.

He’s in good health. I think he’s getting a touch of artheritis though poor guy. He can still run around though, and he can still jump on the bed, so I don’t think its that bad.

I hope he is going to live for at least another 5 years. All going well, he should. I just cannot imagine my life without him in it and I hope I don’t have too for a very long time.

So I thought, why not do it too!

So here goes!

I am determined! When I want to do something, I do it! I dont give up easily! I keep on trying until I get there!

I am a good singer. I’ve always loved to sing. I enjoy expressing myself. Singing makes me happy.

I am loyal. If I am your friend, I will do everything in my power to support or help you. I am sometimes too loyal, but I wouldnt have it any other way.

I have a great sense of humour. I like to laugh. Laughter is good. We should all laugh more often.

I like to learn, and I enjoy learning new things. I am good at retaining info! I think reading has given me more of an insight into our world! You can learn so much from books!

So there you have it, my 5 things I love about me!

What are yours?

He’s still holding on

Biggie is still holding on. He’s a little brighter, although our dad is refusing to take him to the vet. I am absolutely appauled at our dad but he wont do it, he says its because he doesnt have the money for vet bills, but to me, if your dog is ill, then you do all you can to help him, and not let him suffer. To me that is what I would do. You would get the money even if you have to borrow it. I wouldnt have minded paying some of the costs to take biggie to the vets. Instead my dad is giving him painkillers, that you’d give to a human. Which I feel he shouldnt do. But I am not saying anything, because I’ll only land myself in a lot of trouble and it will only cause a lot of disagreement. Biggie has eaten a few bits of kibble, and a little bit of cooked ham, but thats it. He is drinking though. He’s still very weak. He’s just laying down a lot. For now he’s holding his own but for how long I dont know. I hope if he does go it will be in his sleep…he is 13.5 and its probably getting close to his time to go. He’s not whimpering or howling or anything but every now and then he’s panting and I think thats because he’s in pain. Please continue to send up prayers for him and for my dad too, even though he is making me so angry at the moment. My dad does love biggie very much. He literally saved my dads life, when my dad quit drinking for a few years, he threw all of his energy into caring for biggie, who was much younger at the time. He’d walk him every day and it kept him busy and kept him from thinking about alcohol. So he has a lot to thank biggie for. I just wish he’d do the right thing and bring him in to the vets to see what is wrong with him.

My parents dog is ill

My parents dog, Biggie, is now very ill. He’s 13.5 years old. He’s been vomiting and had diarrhea all night. And he’s very weak. I think his lungs or heart is also effected as his breathing is laboured. Its so sad. And a sad fact is that he just might not pull through. We’re hoping he will but I’m thinking it isn’t looking likely. He can barely walk, and he needs help to get up out of bed. So sad to see him like this.

If you can send some positive vibes, prayers, and support as all of our insiders are sad as our parents have had him since he was a pup. We’ve all grown to really love him. He’s had a good life, but we’re not really ready to say goodbye to him yet. Obviously if we have to we will, but we really wish that he’ll recover from this and it wont come to that.

just so, so sad.

i wish

its jaylee. im 9. I wish I was going shopping for dresses tomorrow! I like dresses, they’re so pretty. I want to try on all of the dresses in the store. like lauren is doing. carol anne said if we lose enough weight we might get a dress for laurens confirmation too. I hope we can. I want to look pretty! we have to get rid of our belly first though.

that’s the hard part, our belly is fat. I hate it. we need to do more exercise to get it to go down! exercising is hard but its the only way to get rid of fat, well eating healthy also, but that doesn’t get rid of it.

I hope lauren finds a nice pretty dress. she’s probably gonna try lots of them on. she’s excited to go. I would be too I think.
