Today I had to go to the vet to get an x-ray to see what was causing my back leg weakness. The vets told my mom that I am sick, my liver was enlarged & that I have tumors in my liver and lung. I have cancer but they say my enzymes are normal & that I even gained 2 lbs. They don't know how long the tumors have been there or how aggressive. I got one acupuncture treatment today to hopefully help me with the weakness in my legs. My family is upset about my illness but I am hoping I get a lot more time with my family before it is my time to cross the rainbow bridge. I will continue to blog to all my friends, Scooby

Scooby wrote on Oompa Loompa's yard: Yes, it was a double whammy. This morning when mom was filling the sunflower seeds she noticed a bird laying in the one feeder. She went over there & sure enough mom thinks it was sleeping maybe waiting to be first in line for breakfast. It woke up and flew over to a tree and tried to melt against a branch thinking mom couldn't see it but she walked away and left it alone. Have a great labor day weekend, it will be very hot again starting tomorrow, chances of rain maybe Monday/Tuesday. Have a great labor day, left a vote

Scooby wrote on Sadie's yard: Thank you sweetie. The acupuncture was brutal for me but the vet still thinks she can give me some relief. My spine has fused and possibly on or irritating a nerve causing the toe curls and weakness. Since mom has to take Tasha to the vet tomorrow mom will be able to talk more to the vet and she will also get some pain meds for me to ease any pain or discomfort I may have. I will have another acupuncture session next week, mom has to schedule it. Mom & dad are going to go to the Parade of homes they have every year on labor day and after that just chill around the house with us. Have a great labor day weekend, left a vote

Scooby wrote on Brandi- Never forgotten's yard: Cancer kills that is for sure. Mom loves our breed but she may just back off from our breed for awhile, she lost one shepherd to DM and it about broke her heart. When the time comes she will more than likely go to a humane society but she has over the years adopted from a rescue. Mom says my spine has fused, it maybe on a nerve and that is why I have the weakness in my legs. My muscle have also atrophied from lack of exercise but that is due to the pain. Mom has to take Tasha to the vet tomorrow so she will get some pain pills for me to help ease the pain. Mom will schedule another acupuncture appointment & hopefully it will start to help me.

Scooby wrote on Oompa Loompa's yard: Here we go, dad found a mouse living under the cover of the grill, it would go back up under there when they put the cover back on. A couple of days ago dad starts yelling for mom, well it seems it was a female and she is now a mom to a couple of little mice. Mom got a box and they put the nest in the box, put the box in the corner of the porch on its side and put some things around it so that predators can not get at her hopefully. She was making her nest from Molly's fur that was laying around from when mom was brushing her out. Can't say it is not soft & comfy. Last night while mom & dad were eating dinner mom watched a morning dove land on the patio but it fell on its side and tried to right itself. Mom said to dad that the dove was hurt & dad looked and said yes it is. Well before anyone could get up the dove started to seize and it died right on the patio where it landed. Mom went out not even a half hour after this happened and when she picked it up it was so stiff and hard. Mom did not know that a bird stiffened up that fast. Mom picked up the bird, got a shovel and walked up by the fence line, dug a hole and buried it. Mom thinks it got into something like poison, there was not a mark on it & seizures is a know sign of poisoning. Have a great day, left a vote

Scooby wrote on Sadie's yard: We will know after 3 sessions if the acupuncture will work for me. The pain right now is not from the cancer but the bad arthritis in my spine, that is where the pain & weakness is coming from. Mom gives me pain/anti-inflammatory meds twice a day and also a joint supplement w/MSM which should hopefully help build up the cartilage & fluid in the joints to ease the grinding & rubbing from bone on bone contact. Mom never would of guessed cancer and from the vets results where my liver enzymes are still normal & that I even gained some weight mom is guessing it is in the very early stages, we will take it day by day.

Scooby wrote on Cooper Britt's yard: Mom is right there with your mom, she really hates it. Mom lost our fur brother Buddy to cancer 35 days before moms daughter lost her battle to cancer, now me, but I hope to be around for awhile unless the pain in my back & the weakness in my legs get so bad then I would expect mom to make that call.

Scooby wrote on GRANT of Silver Bullet, Vote MOLLY 259430 DOTM Sept's yard: I will continue to be myself, the biggest obstacle for me is the weakness in my back legs which has nothing to do with the cancer. I was a wreck this morning, could hardly walk and my toes kept curling so I was walking on them even though mom kept straightening them out. I will have a minimum of 3 acupuncture sessions which should give the vet an idea if they are doing me any good. The arthritis is bad in my spine so if the acupuncture does not work I am no farther behind then I was. Mom did not expect this, she thought maybe the DM but not cancer.

Scooby wrote on Brandi- Never forgotten's yard: I don't think I am going to make it to 13, I won't be13 until February. I went in to get my back x-rayed but instead found out I have cancer. The liver is enlarged & they found tumors in the liver & lung. Mom has more posted on my page. Mom is looking forward to the long weekend, spend some time with us now that mom doesn't have to spend time at the house. Mom is putting her foot down and telling dad no more pesticides on the grass, she doesn't care how many dandelions/ weeds are in the lawn. Inexperienced mgrs. are a pain in the butt because they will cater to the wrong people. Anyone that comes in an hour late & gets away with it will continue to do so and will not make a good team member. Too bad your mom can't address these issues with someone above the mgr.
