    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.
