Friday Update on Barkley
« on: March 31, 2006, 02:51:21 pm »
I just got the big guy back from his check up at the vet.  The prednozone is really doing a good job!  The lymph nodes in his neck and hind quarters that had been noticeably enough enlarged (what tipped her off in the first place) have reduced in swelling.  He has gained 2 lbs this week as well.  We're going to continue on this mix of meds and food.  He had a week of good days, although he's a bit more tired today than I've seen him in a while.  We couldn't finish our full walk as he had an accident on the boardwalk (sorry other walkers  :-X ) and then got distressed about the mess he had made.  He's a cool dude that way - doesn't like to do things he knows he's not supposed to be doing!

Anyhow, I'm off to pick up a film of recent pics we took of him and will try to get some posted tonight or tomorrow.  Once again, thanks for all the support this week ... you guys are amazing.

That's good news! 
And that's why they made the song "UNDER the boardwalk"  ... that's where people who don't want to step in dog poop need to walk.

That all sounds really positive. I'm happy for you guys. Barkely don't worry about the accident on the boardwalk, what's a little poo among relative strangers right? ;)

Glad he's feeling ok.
Dear Lord,
Just for today, let me be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.

It's nice to hear Barkley is doing well!  Tell Barkley not to worry about his accident.  "Poop" happens.  What a sweetie! :)

Isn't that the song that goes:

Under the boardwalk - we don't walk with dread
Under the boardwalk - we know that overhead
Under the boardwalk - Barkley's pooped up above
Under the boardwalk - but that big doggy we love!

 :D  :D  :D

Don't get upset Barkley, these things happen to the best of us.  ;)

I'm so happy to hear Barkley is doing well on the prendisone - AWESOME !  Tell Barkley that tomorrow he'll have forgotten all about the poop "incedent"... :D

I'm so glad to hear he's doing well.  Good job to you too for giving him such good care! ;)  I'm sure he appreciates it :)

Great to hear that he had a good vet visit and that he has gained some weight.
He sounds like such a great dog - and how sweet that he was worried about his "mess".

Poor fella!  Tough to have to endure such embarassment at his age!  Glad to hear he's feeling fairly well!  Cherish the days!  Hope they continue on!
