Miss Daisy would like …

Miss Daisy would very much like to thank you all for your kind wishes.  She would like you to know that her medication is helping control her symptoms – she has lost 5 kg of retained fluid (that’s around 12 lbs, we thought she was just getting fat!) in less than a week and is back to her previous slender self.  She is well enough to go on short gentle walks ……

And still likes to take the lead with her big brother Ben following protectively behind, keeping a careful eye on her.  She is relishing all the extra attention, the special treats (with tablets hidden inside!) and fuss.  None of this will make a great deal of difference to her life expectancy of course ….

But it’s wonderful to see her looking cheerful again and be reassured that whatever time she does have left is going to be very happy for her.

I am so glad to hear that Daisy is doing better. I guess I missed what was wrong with her. We lost our Tippie Sue (chihuahua), to renal failure just over a year ago. We did all that we could for her, but God needed her home with Him. After 8 months, we did get another dog. A Terrier mix, Lily Belle. Both of these dogs happened to be black with a little white markings.

Thank you Jean. Sort of sad and happy I think. Happy she’s feeling more herself, but sad I won’t have her for nearly as long as I’d hoped.

Thanks Linda, yes we hadn’t realised quite how subdued she’d become. She’s very cheerful and waggy again now though! Xx

Helen, your love for your pets is heartwarming and beautiful. I am sure Miss Daisy will enjoy all her days with you taking good care of her. God Bless you and your pets as you journey to your new home.

Thank you Sherry. I must say I’m not looking forward to the journey with them – after all neither have left the South Hams since I had them so they’re not at all used to long car journeys. Still we’ll stop for lots of breaks for them to stretch their paws and have drinks, so sure they’ll be OK. And lots of exciting new places for them to discover when we’re settled in. xx
