    So as if Noki isn’t enough something is wrong with Mandy. We have a vet appointment on Thursday. She is restless, pacing, excessively licking and making moaning and groaning sounds. She has gotten very vocal and lost 2 lbs. In the meantime I have some pain medication I am giving her. I am worried she has cancer. She is my husband’s heart dog.

    Terry, I am so sorry! I know what you mean about heart dog--I lost mine this past year, and it still hurts a lot.

    That is so hard, I'm sorry. My heart dog was a huge 120 lbs. His back basically exploded when they did the x-rays they point out he'd broken his back several times previously and it healed over. He was only 7 when we had to say good-bye. I still miss him the most of all my dogs.

    Of the nearly 30 dogs through our house since 1993, I have had 3 heart dogs, and my current bulldog is one of them. He is such a momma’s boy.

    So Mandy has kidney disease. She lost another pound which total loss is a third of her body weight. She can be on a special kidney diet. She has pain so put on gabapentin which is helping. Good thing I have 2 young ones.

    We let Noki go on Tuesday at home. It was double the price but worth it. He laid in his bed and ate treats while getting his shots. We so miss our old bud.
