Thinking of you guys, sorry I am to busy to post but all these beautiful ones who are fighting so hard are always in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs to sweet Tia.

We know that you have your hands full. Your other posts and *adorable* photos lift our spirits which is a form of healing all in itself.

Hi Doug,

"Carpe Diem" - Seize The Day. You two have done a great job of just that.

Hope you two are out having fun right now. We're having Thanksgiving Day here in the States. Counting our blessings which, of course, include the incredible unconditional love of our fur kids. They're counting their blessings for bites of turkey and green beans LOL


Rudy's Gotcha Day is February 1st, 2014 ANDY - You'll never be forgotten sweet boy

So sorry to hear about Tia. I know how heart-broken you must be feeling. Thinking of you. Thinking of Tia.

Thank you guys (and GG). Your messages are quite timely as I got home from work to find Tia looking wooden and slow especially on the stairs so much so that hubby and I are rethinking our plans of our beach romp tomorrow and will sleep down stairs tonight.

She is so happy to see me at home but she looks so stiff as she walks. It is as if her spirit is super strong and beaming but her body is stiff.
I have no idea what this means.
Her gums look normal.

The weather here has turned awfully hot even at night and will continue to be hot for the next week at least. This has caused stumbling issues and seizure problems for us in the past

It reminds me how quickly things can change.

Have an extra slice of turkey and helping of dessert for us

Oh, I hope Tia feels better soon.
Is she on any pain meds for her arthritis?

Keeping Tia in my thoughts and hoping for better days ahead!
