  1. Yesterday
  2. Justie is back from the groomer and looks so different without all that hair. He is very cute and handsome. I know in a little while he will take a long snooze and maybe will even lay in a doggy bed. For a few weeks he has been napping on the kitchen linoleum becuz it's cooler there. I hope his panting will stop now too. Of course all week we will be in the 50's or low 60's-not the 70's and 80's when his hair was too long. Thanks angels!!
  3. shoot. I posted earlier and it's not here, *** when I hit for this to post- the one I wrote 3 hours ago showed up. Justie had some diarrhea this morning. I woke to many tiny paw prints all over my bedroom carpet. UGH!!!! He has been a little off balance but I'm sure its due to the diarrhea since the neuro said any medical change will make the vertigo worse. He is snoozing right now. He had a bath a little bit ago becuz tmw he goes to the groomer...he looks like a baby bear. In fact I have been calling him Boo Boo Bear. He looks so cute with his long fluffy hair, but with allergies he gets itchy if his paws and body aren't wiped when he comes inside, and with this long hair I can't get down to the skin. Plus, it has not been fun trying to find where to put his rectal valium iwhen he has the GM's. Carol is taking him and staying with him tmw becuz I may have a rotator cuff tear, so I can't really hold him up safely for him or me. I will be on pins and needles waiting for my little boy to come back home. thanks angels!!
  4. Last week
  5. Justie is roaming around upstairs. He had a good nap on my lap while I was sitting on the couch downstairs. He does circle and lose his balance at times. He was a little worse earlier today but I am sure it was becuz he had diarrhea this AM. In fact there were footprints all over my room that told me he had a problem. UGH!!! it's only 54 degrees today with a wind chill of 49 degrees. Chilly day!!! Thanks angels!!!!
  6. Hopefully the techs fixed the problem, although it definitely takes a few extra steps to get in the forum now!!! Thanks for the continued tries-glad u finally got in!! I am so very happy with Justice's therapies today and how he was so excited and wiggle buttin just like my angel Tuck! Hugs to u and the kitties!!
  7. Justie had a great day in therapy. He has no neck pain anymore! In rehab he did the water treadmill for 8 minutes and his land exercises and was a 'wild and crazy dude'-they loved seeing him back to being Justice. His acupuncturist called him "busy" today. I imagine he will sleep a lot this evening!! Thanks so much angels!!
  8. Hi Cindy and Justice And Angel Tucker Forum is getting crazy- gave me some non existent email address. Finally got on. I am happy to see Justie doing better.. Keeping all paws crossed that he continues to do well Beauty's Kathy
  9. Thank you for the prayers. Mister is still doing steady. It's been pretty much the same with him, nothing worse but nothing better. Wish I had better news to give. I monitor him like a hawk so hoping he gets better. Will continue to update.
  10. Justie is doing well today. He has had some walks outside and is now snoozing. It's 81 degrees and thankfully there is a strong breeze at times becuz otherwise it would feel very hot due to the humidity. Storms are forecast this eve and of course tmw since I am taking Justice to MedVet for rehab. The past 2 Mondays when I cancelled rehab the weather would have been great for a drive...of course not so tmw. Thanks angels!!!!!!
  11. it's been a pretty good day for Justie. I was worried becuz yesterday evening his vertigo was bad. Earlier I thought he had a GM seizure, but only saw the tail end. But yesterday evening convinced me he did have a GM and the vertigo was so bad due to the GM. The neuro said that after seizures or any illness the vertigo will be worse. He said dogs never completely heal with vestibular syndrome-they just learn to compensate. It will be harder with Justice though becuz of his other diseases. He just never gives up!! thanke angels!
  12. Justie has been following everyone around while we have been cleaning. He also went to the vet for his heartworm test and of course was very brave. thanks so much angels!!
  13. winter weather advisory????? UNREAL!! Too weird that ur pollen count is very high(so is ours) with snow on the way. You have got urself quite a little character in Macy-what memories u are making!!! I don't know if u know one of Mandy's nicknames-it is Mandypants...becuz when she was a puppy she would steal underpants. Now she likes stealing bounty towels, tissues, dishrags and wash clothes, and she is 5yo...something to look forward to with Macy. LOL. hugs to u all!!
  14. Justie had GM's again during the night. His neuro isn't too concerned becuz he thinks it is secondary to his UTI and once he feels better the clusters will subside. He doesn't have any back pain, but has neck pain so one of his meds has been increased. He will start back to full rehab on Monday. Thanks angels!!!
  15. Earlier
  16. We had a winter weather advisory here this morning! That's Minnesota ... pollen count is very high and snow is in the forecast. Ollie's keeping his fingers crossed so he can do snowballs this week! Macy has been in such a mischievous mood. We have a cat door in the bathroom door, and she's always loved it since day 1. She blows through it at 100 mph. She's started going in the bathroom when Woody takes a shower. She sits and waits for him, and then as soon as she hears the water turn off, she grabs his underwear off the counter and dashes out the cat door. And she's always so proud of herself! I hope Justice gets a good report tomorrow.
  17. Justie is napping at my feet. It's 80 degrees right now and he gets really tired in the heat, and he was just outside. Tmw we head down to MedVet for a neuro appt. The forecast is for some severe storms in the afternoon, and of course his appt is at 2pm. Thanks angels!
  18. Justie is having a really good day. The vertigo has lessened. Hopefully he is on the road to recovery from the vestibular syndrome🙏 Thanks so much angels!!
  19. Jacki emailed me and said she isn't able to fix the issues with the forum, but she sent a ticket to support and hopefully at some point they can fix it. I worry that many angels won't want to keep taking the time to try and get into the forum, and becuz they can't see posts, or even reply to posts then they will leave this forum... Justie is doing pretty well. Thankfully the 3 grand mals that ended 18 hours ago have not set his vertigo back like it did a week ago. Thanks ever so much angels!
  20. I don't know if this message will in fact be read or fall in the hands of anyone that maybe of assistance,but trying all I can to help my baby,my heart DJ. On 4/11/17 He fell on his hind right leg and broke it in three places,which required a metal rode,pins,and plates. I am disabled and having a difficult time paying for this special surgery. I found a wonderful facility willing to work with me,but my resources are very small. I have made two fundraisers for my DJ on gofundme.com and youcaring.com last week,but nothing has came about at this time. If anyone out there may read this and can help me please contact Raleigh Community Animal Hospital Raleigh,NC 27609. They love my DJ and he loves everyone he meets. Thank you and God bless.

This morning my fiance came and got me out the bathroom and told me she was having problems breathing and something was wrong I thought he was just worried and she has bad anxiety so I thought he was prolly making her really nervous so we got her some fresh air and I listened and she was breathing fine went pee and I brought her back inside tried to compfort him and put her water and food on the bed by her and she drank a lot and ate a little I didn't a check of body to see if she was in pain and she wasn't but after that she did start acting weird she won't move she is shaking really bad she is not nearly as bad about shaking as you would think for being a chiwawa she only shakes when she's really cold she's very unresponsive and keeps trying to just close her eyes she is always so hyper I really hope she is just having like some bad anxiety or something but I really need to get her to the animal hospital but I don't have any money and they won't even look at her unless I have $100 in my hand for an exam fee my fiance has had a hard hard life and seen a lot of death and he is convinced that she is dying I swear to God I'll do whatever it takes to make sure she is okay she isn't just my therapy dog she is also a huge therapeutic help for the him the person I love most in this world I need help today please God let me find a way to get a veterinarian to see my dog today even if it is anxiety she needs helps with it and she needs heartworm meds too please someone help us
  23. He had 3 all together in a 2.5 hour period. His last was 4:30am. Looking at him today u would never know he had so many seizures!😀 His balance isn't worse so far👍 It doesn't appear to have set him back like last weeks seizure cluster. Both of us are going to take a snooze- it was a pretty sleepless night. thanks so much angels😇
  24. This is crazy. Last Sunday Justie had a great day, but then abt 1:45am he started having GM's-4 in 90 min. Well this Sunday ( yesterday) he had a really great day too. He also just had a GM AT 2 am. Just hoping he doesn't cluster. i am going to start worrying when he has a really great day that a GM will be coming...especially if it's a Sunday and Monday. ill see what I think in a few hours abt taking him to MedVet...but it doesn't look like we will go. thanks angels😇
  25. Mister is still doing the same. Some stools coming out, but in small amounts and not regularly. He is still having some breathing issues. The doctors I took him to before haven't said anything about doing a procedure to get rid of the backed up stool since they gave the medicine. but since it isn't really working, he may have to get something done. Will keep everyone updated!
  26. Justie is having a good day. For awhile this morning his head was barely tilted (his head has been tilted between a 45-90 degree angle-quite severe). He got to take a walk -on leash- in his beloved big yard. He had such a good time. He came in and got a big drink and fell asleep just a few feet inside the door. He is snoring away. We'll see how he is when he wakens-hopefully still doing well. We go to MedVet tmw for laser and acupuncture. Thanks angels!!
  27. I will email IMOM this week and let them know that there are some issues with the forum. The weird thing is that it will let me post even when it keeps asking me to sign in. I scroll down and just click on the last person who posted on the boyz thread (for me it happens to keep showing Kay posted that 19 hours earlier when in fact it was from 4/4) and it goes to the most recent post (which today happens to be Kay)! Just weird that sign in prompt keeps showing up, but it obviously can be disregarded. Justie had a really good day, but abt 5PM he started circling like crazy and being off balance. He is sleeping now-which is what his brain needs. Not sure if this is from the cognitive dysfunction or vestibular syndrome-or a combo of both. I'm going to get some video for the neuro appt on Thursday, Thanks so much Sue and Kay and all the angels!!
