puppy update

He has spent the day on the couch.  I have tried to kick him off in the past but you know the saying.  Where does the Great Dane sleep?  Any where he wants too.  They are huge dogs and can make themselves into immovable objects.

He holds his head up more and is eating more.  Almost his normal amount of food.  The difference is that he isn't begging for more.  He loves to eat.  He is moving with more coordination now too.  Before his movements were spastic and jerky.

Why haven't we put him down yet?  Dragon said a prayer.  "God if it isn't his time, let me be called into work."

Dragon should have had Friday off.  Most of the day anyway.  That would have given us the opportunity to take my baby to the vet.  Not a trip I was looking forward to.  Usually when they call him in to work we get the call about 8 or 9 in the morning.  Friday morning we got the call just before 6 am.

WOW.  How about that?  Early enough that we hadn't started getting ready to go.  To that I say, "Yes Sir God.  I'll love him a little longer."  And "Thank you God for not taking my puppy yet."

We are still watching him close.  I don't know how much he will improve but I'll take what I can get.

Ps.  I think we may be going to church Sunday morning.  Maybe.  I'll let you know how it goes.

    1. Yep. That is one of those times I just say "Yes Sir God" and trust him.

  3. Those animals come into our home and quickly become one of the family.
    I hope everything turns out well for both of you!

  4. It's so hard to know when our animal babies get sick or disable. I will pray that God will give you wisdom and peace. God bless you and all you love, Belle L.

  5. I'm so glad your baby is showing signs of improvement. Has he been seen by a vet to diagnose what is wrong with him?

    Big dogs are lovely, but rather hard to handle physically when they become ill.

    Hugs,

    1. Dragon needs the car for work and has been called in every off day. Blag. So no, he hasn't been to the vet. I hate this but I can't get a Dane on the motorcycle. Now that would be a sight. Every time the vet office is open, Dragon is gone.

      Love my big dog. He is big because his is so lovable.

    1. That dog has been pampered all week. This is the first night he slept alone and he couldn't stand it. Silly dog.
