Yes, it’s a bully stick made of Rabbit. His favorite next to chicken feet.

Sally, I timed him before, and it takes him about 7 minutes. That includes getting every crumb off the floor. Having one front paw sometimes the stick gets away from him. If he did not have that obstacle he could finish it in less them 5.

He loves his treats!

Thank you Maggie and Dave!

Brownie wants to know how Maggie is doing, and once he finishes is acupuncture maybe Maggie would like to meet at the park?

I got unsubscribed smiley5 I am just seeing all of this now! Oh Brownie, hoppy ampuversary!! I am so glad you got a good bill of health, and I hope the acupuncture helped you to feel better!

Nancy, your pack is so adorable. Watching that video made me grin ear to ear. I am sorry I’m late to the pawty… I didnt see any of this until just now.

OMD, that is the biggest stick I have ever seen!! Where on earth do you get them?? Holy moly!! 

I love how you just make it a point to go with the flow and love every moment that you have with them, that is just so pawsome.

Sending you a huge hug, and belly scratches to your crew sp_hearticon2

Brownie Update

So Brownie has been on the cholodin for 1.5 weeks and has not had an accident in 6 nights. So no more me waking up catching him hiding his poo under his blanket. He really felt ashamed when it happened.

Brownie has had two chest xrays in the last four no the by two different vets. They both said Brownie is hard to xray because Brownie fights them. But they both said he was clear. Dr Knapp said his hack  was an old man’s cough. But now he is having a cough before the hack. I called Dr. Knapp (holistic vet) and she said to give him musanex. If that doesn’t help it could be an infection.

I am home all day and all night with Brownie and my gut has been telling me for months it’s something else. It looks like a third xray will be Saturday by a third vet. This is one time I hope and pray I am wrong. 

His appetite is still good and he still let’s me know when it’s 7:00.

You know ehat we’re going to say.  And we would meait. You know what you would say to another member making the same type post and you would mean it.

Brownie has had two xrays in just rhe last four months by two different  Vets and they found nothing!  Being “hard to xray” is probably a description Vets give to about 75% of the dogs, but it doesn’t  negate the results.  They would still be able to see something  if it had any size to it at all…at all!

Old man cough… old girl cough…DEFINITELY  has been a trait of many of my “mature” dogs.  If you think about it, a lot of “mature” humans have random coughs…hacking…clearing  their throat.

Glad his poo ossues arr taken care of.  I think I mentioned before, my senior Nellie, hacks, pops sometimes in her sleep and is inconsistent.  Ahhhh…the joys of aging😉  

Regardless, we are all sending  .lots pf pawsitive  energy to our very special  Brownie…so very special  and such a good boy!

Hugs

I’ve done those xrays. When we had a fighter we would coo them and get them calm long  enough to get a good shot.  I agree with Sally,  2 different vets,  same results. 

Breathe… please…I know he’s got a cough but stay positive,  he’s not a spring pup.  This might just be normal older pup stuff that you don’t need to worry about.

Thank you Jackie!

Brownie gets being stubbrand from me. I am as stubbrand as they come. I admit it…..

If the musanex helps I may skip the xray. We will see…..

With some new medication Brownie seems to be feeling much better.  I was so worried about Brownie I forgot Max’s 9th birthday on February 11th.  So mom is taking Max on a special car ride tomorrow, just him and me.  

Brownie will be celebrating his one year in 11 days.  One year!  Where did the time go?  I am so grateful this community was here during this journey, because I don’t think I would of been able to do it alone…
