Work day with mom and a check up!

So here we are again, Baby Bella (who isn’t so much a baby anymore) spent the day with me at work again  πŸ˜Š It’s been so long since I’ve taken her with me! 

She was the image of a perfect lady (for the most part lol) and she got a chance to meet her new sister, which is the new pit puppy of one of my coworkers πŸ’œπŸΆ

Hopefully they will become better friends once the new pup isn’t so nervous around a bigger pup ☺️

As for her check up… it went differently than I had hoped. But not as bad as I worried. 

We’ve been battling UTI’s and hormone issues since I adopted her, along with her abnormal front leg (which thankfully causes her no issues).  This last month she has been doing really well in the UTI department and off medications for the whole month πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ˜Š

But, unfortunately we’re not out of the woods yet.   Yes, her UTI’s have cleared and her bladder seems to be in tip top shape! But now it’s her lady bits that are causing an issue and requiring more hormones and possible medications to correct … πŸ˜‘ sigh. 


Tomorrow I will be consulting with a supplement company that my clinic works with very closely and hopefully finding something that could prove helpful to her vs on going medications. 

Oh the issues with spaying a girl to young πŸ˜₯ she’s being a trooper with all of this. But it breaks my heart to think this could all be due to early spaying. 

I understand the counties reasoning for doing so, but I wish there was a way I could have signed something promising to do so when she was of age. Or had my veterinary sign something for me…

But we can’t change the past, all we can do is work to create a better future. 

Now, please don’t take this as a reason to not adopt a pet. Far from that! 

Take this as one of the reasons why pets should be adopted from shelters! So they can have a loving home that will help them with whatever they need. 

I mean, who knows what would have happened to her if I hadn’t found her? Would she have been dumped again for urinating all over the house? 

Would it have all gone unnoticed and she would have been in pain, living with an infection that kept getting worse?

Who knows. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Maybe someone like me would have gotten her and she would be right where she is now, getting the medical care she needs and a little extra TLC.

It’s hard to say what the outcome would have been.  But I am glad she’s with me and I’m able to help her through all this πŸ’œ

The puppy diaries 

Life as we know it

So Bella up there is enjoying the start of the winter season. 

I must have picked up the wrong dog because we have two totally different opinions about the snow πŸ™ˆ

​
And It’s been falling down all morning and doesn’t show any signs of stopping. Oh boy, I’m not ready for this stuff yet. 

For me, snow means the heat is turned up, the fuzzy socks are out and the nerves are kicking in about driving to and from work everyday πŸ˜‘

Ugh! I hate driving in the snow. I hate it with a burning passion… I just wish the passion would melt the snow a little , ya know? Lol at least on the roads. 

That’s all I ask.

   Bella on the other hand is jumping around outside like a spring bunny and constantly begging me to let her back out!

She is going to make this a long winter…

Although, one of my “pros” for getting a puppy (yes, I made a pros and cons list) was that she’d get me outside more and help me be more active. Pretty sure she’s fulfilling my pros. 😊
