sooooo….some yay'ing going on around here today….

Posted: May 30, 2011 at 6:29 pm

the really great news is….

mystic’s kidney values on her bloodwork are better than they were last time around (a month ago)…yay! so we will keep up with the high fish protein diet because it appears to be working for her well…YAYAYAYAY!
now i can take a deep breath and not worry that each little puppy puke or each time she does her sudden puppy deep sleep crashes… do not necessarily spell her demise is right around the corner. maybe right now she is still a normal and healthy puppy who occasionally spits up (cuz she sometimes eats weird shit) and who crashes cuz she burns herself out with her busy play every day.

I’m the Queen of the world!

it is so easy to be paranoid about her. i really need to get a grip and relax a little bit now.

the septic stuff is all done..it took all freaking day and it cost almost $2000.00 ouch! but at least it is done and our septic system will not inconveniently blow up or back up…gross!!! we are good for about another 3 years…so all in all i guess this too is a yay.

my knee is toast again..i should have stayed off it today so this is most definitely NOT a yay.

pops had the vet out today…in the end we think he is allergic to the hog fuel which totally sucks big time right now. we will have to switch to shavings for him which are going to have to be fully raked up every day or it will make a muddy mess…..this is also not a yay.

wah wah hog fuel

i had to send the barn guys down to the lower pasture for a couple of hours today while the septic guys were here. the cows were far too interested in the big truck parked by the gate and no one could get in and out or back and forth cuz the giant snoopy steer and crew were there.

if you want a sight that will bring tears of joy to your eyes it is watching the running, bucking, joyful stampede of sheep, cows, horses, donkeys and llamas as they head for the grass on the other side of the fence which truly is longer, sweeter and far, far greener….the barns guys collectively say a VERY LOUD AND HAPPY YAY!!!!!

Good cuz I was starting to look at eating the donkey next! Nah just kidding that was a kiss I heart the Zigster.

    A hard question about Mystic => Is there any chance her kidney still OK (“normal”)?

  • Carol says

    nope..the ultrasounds showed they were both malformed and too small . but kidneys are amazing organs…they can do their job and clear out the toxins from the body while still only functioning at a 25% capacity. it is only when they drop to below 25% that the blood values start reflecting the failure of them to do the job any more.

    that is such good news all around and especially for Tucker he is such a special boy who deserves a special home and a home that does doggie H2O with him is most definately a wonderful and loving home! Thank you tom.

    Is Mystic an American Eskimo dog or a Samoyed? To me they both look the same.Although I knew a Samoyed who was pretty large.
