I probably won’t film the initial greeting, as I want my hands free. But there will be plenty of documentation after. I have a phone countdown. I still miss Riot so much. I could never replace him. 

Here’s a Czar video from last week. I’ll get more soon.

Wow that was so spunky! He’s ready to dance! Good to seem him looking so enthusiastic.

I’m going to try and drag him outside this weekend, if the sun cooperates. He’s been too much of a couch potato lately.

Yes, I’m sure I’ll love them. Especially once they’re housebroken, haha.

Ugh. I spoke too soon. Czar isn’t feeling well today. He seemed down when I left him with my mom this morning. I figured he was just tired. I called my parents, and they say he won’t eat or drink. My dad managed to make him go outside, but he wouldn’t take his usual treat. I’ll pick up a chicken on the way home. That might help perk him up. We have anti nausea meds as well.

Just as I finished looking at his happy video, then I see your post about hom not eartng!  Bummer!!

Refresh my memory.  How many more vaccines is he supposed to have?  How many has he already had?  

Hopefully he’ll have his perk back after a day of spoiling at grandparents house 

Back to the joyful video.  Thanks for sharing so we could see that handsome boy!  

Hugs

I do too.

He’s hopefully done with the vaccines. He had two. He gets the titer blood next Friday, then it’s 2-3 weeks to find out if his antibodies were created. If they haven’t, we have to do another one. He’s had two rounds of chemo so far. Three to go.

Awww poor guy, he’s having one of those down days. Yeah, I’ve heard that Costco rotisserie chickens are miracle workers. I hope whatever you get perks him back up and off the couch.

I wish we had Costco out here. He’ll have to make do with the grocery store. I just hope he doesn’t get any sicker.

He’s a strong boy, keep the faith and those generic grocery store rotisserie chickens will work too!

I hate to see him sick. I hope he’s feeling better once I go get him. He’s such a happy guy that it’s a real kick when he’s down.

Our grocery store has a rotisserie that is cheap and fantastic! I de-bone it all while its still hot and have been known to put it in freezer bags and keep a few aside just in case. They microwave warm in no time flat too. Sometimes I will take the skin and zap it in my ninja along with the meat to make it well ground so that I can mix it with kibble once it is warmed up. 

Fingers crossed that he is better when you get home.

Czar ate most of the small chicken I bought. He’s seemed pretty happy tonight. He’s wanted love. He has coughed a few times since I’ve been home. It seems to be in his throat, rather than his chest. Of course it’s still scary, so I’ll be calling the vet tomorrow.

Glad he’s feeling better and enjoyed his chicken! He knows how to hold out for the good stuff!
