That is a hilarious look on his face!  Then I looked closer and noticed that the plate is the same pattern I have!  It took me a while to get past looking at those adorable eyes.  How is you sweet Buddy this week?  Any new pictures of the little cutie pie? :D


Buddy's doing OK right now, thanks for asking!  :)

A few weeks ago he was doing pretty poorly and we almost thought it was the end, but somehow he got through whatever it was and bounced right back.  We changed his food again which seems to have helped. The new food has more fibre and makes him poop more, which is good exercise for his back end.  You can see the tumour (when you look straight at his bum, it's off to the side at about 8 o'clock)  bulging slightly from his hindquarters when he squats to poop now, but he still seems to enjoy taking a good dump so that probably means it doesn't hurt much.  That is somewhat reassuring.

He seems to have some muscle wasting or reduced feeling in his left hind leg as well.  He needs help down the back stairs sometimes, and sometimes if he tries to change direction suddenly while we're walking (those loudmouthed birds need a-chasing), the leg folds under and he falls on his bum.  Again though, it doesn't seem to hurt, as he gets right back up and carries on as if nothing happened.

So overall he's doing better than he was a few weeks ago, but still some days you can tell he feels weak and nauseous.  More good days than bad days though.  Loves walking and treat time and cuddle time and squeeky toy play time.  His happee is our happee.  But his sad is our hair-pulling sleep-losing worry and panic.  Next scheduled vet checkup will be in 2 or 3 weeks.  He's doing very well considering everything, really.  Can't ask for much more than that.  He's our sweet baby boy.  So thankful for every day we have together.

OK some pictures now...

The white bear in his toy basket is Humpy Bear.  (I'm sure you can guess how it got its name.)  We've found Humpy Bear cast aside in various positions in different spots in the bedroom this week.  I believe that's a good sign.  ;)

That is wonderful to hear sweetie!  I know you both cherish the time you have with him.  Those are adorable new pictures!  I love that blur of a tail!  I figure that if he feels good enough to have some "quality time" with his white bear, that is a good sign! :D

So glad that Buddy is feeling a bit better. As my folks learned, you take it one day at a time. Their cat Sabrina had a mouth tumor. She lasted a year..far and away longer than even the best prognosis. I think she just didn't want to leave my Dad. They had such fun exercising together! :)

Never give up hope. Our animals are sometimes stronger than we know.

Oma Cassie relaxing on the sofa, she stayed inside all day yesterday.
Yes, her tummy is that soft and she will let you pet it.
Li-Ion had to stay in the bedroom all day because she was in the house. If he wasn't such a monster he could roam around too.

We spent the day today with the wonderful people who run St Louis Boxer Rescue. We had a lot of fun visiting with friends and several Boxers who are up for adoption. But the best part of the whole day was when we signed the adoption papers for Caesar.

Caesar is no longer our foster dog. He is now our forever dog! Although there were struggles in the beginning,.(he has been in seven different homes in his lifetime and came with a lot of baggage) he has come so far and we are very proud of how much he has changed for the better. We love him and couldn't imagine life without him

I'm sure the cats are thrilled....lol

This morning the little biddies flew up to the training roost and stood around up there grooming. For some reason it reminded me of the girls bathroom in high school. I should put a mirror up for them! It takes a lot of skill to stand up there and straighten all of their new little feathers. Some fell when they tried it.

Nathan seems to be doing better today. Still not quite there, but he was up asking for treats and clawed the crap out of his favorite chair. I really do think what's bothering him most is the stress of the whole ordeal. He's never been really sick, and has never spent a night away from home in a noisy place with people poking and prodding.

On Nathan's behalf everyone split a can of tuna. Mia didn't finish hers and Nate was more than happy to nom down what the didn't finish. They're all in a tuna coma right now except for Biscuit. He's been playing in the bath tub and just came over to plop his soggy ass in my lap.

How is Cooper taking all of this?


Well, Cooper has started getting used to Caesar...a little. He will still run to a place beyond the baby gates if Caesar makes a move towards him (not in a mean way, just in a curious way)  but he will go right up to him and is fine as long as Caesar doesn't move. We have been fostering Caesar for almost 9 months now and it has taken this long for Cooper to get this brave. The reason we almost didn't even foster him was because of Coop and his social anxieties but he is doing ok. We try to keep him well hydrated and low stress as possible because we don't ever want another blockage. That would mean PU surgery for him and a big chunk of change for us. Racer loves him and rubs on him all the time. I know Cooper sees this but it doesn't change how he feels. Thanks for asking :o)
