Once again we can not blog today. Mom took us to the lake to swim today. The wind was so strong up there that Ruger wouldn't go in and Rusty couldn't stand up in the waves. So we came home again. Next week we are going to a closer lake and try again. Rusty was so happy to hear the waves he pulled Mom toward the water. Mom was sad when he couldn't stand up in them. So hard to watch him grow old . Mom will try and put his pool up again. Mom took pictures of us by a big tree that was laying on the beach. Ruger acted up again as usual. Wished we could share them with you.

How We Met?

Wanted a watch dog/family pet saw an add in the paper and went and bought him. Bought Ruger off the internet for Rusty after Brandi & Sammy died because he was so lonely without his two best friends.

Today Mom and Dad were gone most of the day so me and Maya just rested up. I have no idea what she did cause I was asleep! She says she was sleeping, too so I guess she doesn't know what I did either! BOL! The cats refuse to tell us if the other one is fibbing...Lucky says it could be good blackmail material in the future if necessary! The birds just say "good girl" and "pretty Ty Birdie" and then laugh so I am just a little worried we may have done a little sleep waliking, or worse, sleep TALKING and that is what the intend to use as leverage sometime! This weekend we are gonna chill with Mom and dad as far as I know! Tomorrow we are having eggs and turkey sausage for breakfast and we are gonn get to check out the swimming pool! We have a hard plastic kiddie pool that mom and dad are gonna see if we like to get in. I am also gonna chase bubbles while Mommy blows them for me! We are gonna pick snap peas for supper and BBQ Country Style Pork Ribs! Its gonna be nice to get lots of attention all day long and just hang with Mom and Dad. Sorry I don't have anything to tell you about todays events but sleeping is kinda boring to write about, and since that's all the 2 of us did I'd have to wake you up to say goddbye!! BOL!

Hi Rusty and Ruger, I (Max) just got back from the vet's office. I have a double ear infection. It is very inflamed. I'm now taking a prednisone taper along with ear medication. Mommy is concerned that she will have some trouble putting the drops into my ears because even the vet had lots of trouble cleaning out my ears. I was yelping in pain and it took two techs and the vet along with Mommy giving me tons of treats to allow the vet to clean my ears. She wasn't even able to do a thorough cleaning but she said that once the prednisone reduces the inflammation it might be easier to do. Mommy will be trying to give the drops tomorrow morning. For now she is doing the prednisone hoping that it helps somewhat with the pain. I'm 50 lbs already! I'm almost the same weight as Snickers (55 lbs). Happy Memorial Day weekend! Here is a vote for you. Love, Snickers & Max

Hi R&R

TGIF & so happy that it’s a long weekend. Do you have any plans for the weekend? Other than celebrating my 4th birthday tomorrow, mom says we are staying home. Mom does need to clean the carpets and get some yard work done. But other than that we plan on relaxing for most of the long weekend. This morning mom called & talked to the neurologist at Purdue about the possibility of weaning me off the medication that I take 3 times a day for the seizures. Both mom & our vet believe that the seizures were the result of the Addison’s & that I don’t really have epilepsy. The neurologist says that the only way to know for certain is to take me off the medication and see what happens. I have to be weaned off the medication though by reducing my dosage in increments. I am currently on 500mg Keppra 3 times a day. To wean me off, I will start by taking 400mg 3 times a day for a month, then 300mg 3 times a day for a month, 200mg 3 times a day for a month & finally 100mg 3 times a day for a month. So it will take me 4 months to be completely off the medication. I have to switch to the liquid form of my medication so that it is easy to ensure I am taking the correct amount. Mom ordered it from Costco online so as soon as we get it I will start to taper off the Keppra. Please keep your paws crossed for me that all goes well & that I will remain seizure free without the medication. Today I went dog food shopping with Mom for the MisFits. They are on the last bag of free dog food that I won in the Halloween costume contest. So the three of them got to eat free for 6 months. The food I won was Science Diet which mom isn’t too fond of but she wasn’t about to waste $600 of free food. Money, Abbie & Pooh were eating Diamond Naturals before the Science Diet. With the current recalls, mom said we needed to find another reasonably priced dog food for them. She settled on Exclusive which hasn’t been in any of the recalls, is reasonably priced & also has a frequent buyer program. Every 9th bag is free & with the four of us we can use all the free that we can get. Mom also bought me a special toy for my birthday tomorrow. It is supposed to be very difficult to chew up. We will see tomorrow just how tough it is. Anyone want to leave a guess as to how long it takes me to tear it up? BBS. Regis
