Waggin’ Tails – Rollie

Hi LoveHandlers!

Thought you may like to have an update on my Rollie-Dog.  She is doing well, a trim 71 lbs., very sleek and lovely.  Going a bit more grey around the muzzle (but aren’t we all?!)

Eyes are fine.  Still as blind as ever of course, but has 4 different eye drops twice daily which keep the internal pressures down and her pupils small so that most of the time you would not know, to look at her, that she is blind.  Manages to get around the house just fine and knows exactly where she is in the neighborhood on our walks – particularly loves one neighbor who always has a few little treats in her pocket when we go there, and comes on walks with us.

Back in March, though, she began drinking a LOT, and needing to go out to pee in the middle of the night. I assumed she had a bladder infection, but the vet did tests and discovered she is diabetic.  So I have one of those blood glucose testers and test her glucose level each morning and evening, and, when I can, in the middle of the day so the vet can see the high and low points.  She is on insulin twice daily.  This all started in early March, and here we are in late May still trying to find the right insulin dosage for her.  We began at 8 units twice a day, and are now up to 35 units twice a day and things still not settled, but we are getting there slowly.  I send the readings (I keep a daily log) to the vet regularly and she increases the dose very gradually to make sure we don’t overdo anything.  Rollie is fine with this, lets me do the blood test without any problems (such a tiny prick on her ear), and the shots are easily given in the scruff of her neck.  Her spirits are good, she is a very happy dog, loves to roll about on the lawn like a piece of India rubber which is very funny to watch.  She adores the car and wants to come with me whenever I go out.  She is such a sweet and lovely dog, we are very happy with her – and I think she is very happy with us!

Thought you may like to hear how she is doing.  She is our special pooch and we love her dearly.

Hope all is well with you both, and that LoveHandlers is going strong.

Hi LoveHandlers!

Sasha whom we renamed India is just an amazing dog! She’s already learned to go down stairs and is no longer afraid of getting in the car. My gosh, what an awesome dog!

Waggin’ Tails – Tito

Hi LoveHandlers!

Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that Rollo, now renamed Tito (which means Giant in Italian and Saved in Latin) is doing great since coming from your shelter. He is a whopping 6 pounds now, but since he is always such a bundle of energy, I don’t think he will ever be much bigger than that! He seems to love our home here by the lake… he loves to search the shore for reeds and even came up with a fish one day! He has settled right in with our old girl Bailey, our 11 year old Cocker Spaniel, who can’t understand why this little boy won’t just stay still already. He has also fit right in with his new daddy’s huge Italian family. They are quite taken with the little guy, and give him lots of love and attention at Momma’s Sunday dinners. All in all, he seems to be a very happy little boy, and we are very happy to have him in our family. We hope to enjoy many years to come with little Tito, and so grateful we were able to adopt him!
