My human was having some useless moments scrolling through the internet the other night. She had already studied lumps in dogs, had looked at what happened on the day in history, had skimmed the on-line clothing sales, had searched for her favorite dog walking shoes (which look to be discontinued), had checked our Instagram account, had looked at a particular dog food contents – when she suddenly saw an article about the “rarest and most stunning dogs in the world.” Possible blog material? She clicked on the link and all of us awoke from our naps when we heard her loud groan.
She expected to see pictures of PONs, Picards, Finnish Lapphunds, Otterhounds, Mudis….but the first dog listed was an Aussie Pom. You have it – a cross between an Australian Shepherd and a Pomeranian. And the list got worse…the Corgle/Beagi (I guess it has two names), the Pomsky which they called the most popular “developer canines” today – half Husky and half Pomeranian, the Golden Dox – a Daschund/ Golden Retriever cross ; and the Whoodle – a Wheaten/poodle cross. There were more – but that’s enough to give you an idea. And indigestion.
My human stopped looking at the site, but just like rubbernecking at an accident, she couldn’t resist going back and seeing if every dog listed was a multi-breed. And low and behold – there WERE some real breeds – including Salukis, Newfoundlands, and Komondors. Listing real breeds with the multi-breeds is probably worse than just listing all multi-breeds as there may actually be some TRUTH to the article.
You will all be thrilled to know that yesterday…..drum roll…..ALL of us pooped! Honestly, if someone was listening from the bushes at the side of the road, they would be calling someone to “have a talk” with my human. The joy when I did my thing yesterday was embarrassing…..
So that was the good news. The bad news? Seizure counter reset. The day started off so great and although my human again left early, she was also home early. Only to see the telltale seizure clue. Someone had peed. She went through the tape- and sure enough.
My human wracked her brain with all kinds of reasons. Is it because she has gone back to work? Is it because of the change in schedule? Who knows. She was feeling pretty bummed out so she called my vet and they had a great long chat. The vet reminded my human that I had a very long seizure free streak last year- when my human was working long hours. (And my human isn’t even working long hours right now!) She said that it is hard to know an exact cause- that’s the challenge of epilepsy. They decided to tweak my meds for a few weeks to see what happens. My human felt much better after the call.
Last night we got out for some awesome games of fetch. Well- Einstein and I fetch. The FG runs out and stares at the fetch toy. He went for a long walk instead.
Spring is definitely in the air!!!
Have a good one. Peace and paws up.
