I love this tee because there is an idiot outside taking this picture.

I am still at Piper's home. Over here there's loads of nice doggies to sniff and they always... always leave big big mails by the trees and on the roads. I get to check my mails every evening when my cow takes me for my walks.

I get extra tummy rubs and hugs more these days. I am not sure why but i kinda like them anyways.

My cow giving me tummy rubs when i nap

From my latest diagnosis and blood works from Piper's vet, i am now on

Oroxine for hypothyroidism
Steroids for my auto immune disease and tapered down slowly for this month
Antibiotics for suspected e.platys

We did an xray of my heart again. We have to stop the Fortekor in the meantime as the medicine will not go well with the steroids.

My cow cum my nurse aide is staggering my medicines throughout the day so that it will easier for me to cope. She is quite confused so she has all my medicine and timing all written on her book.

I seem to pee more and sometimes we pee in the early mornings. I did a big leak at 4.30am this morning. To avoid having big leaks accidents in the house, we go out early in the mornings and i get to leave the first mail for all the doggies in the neighbourhood. How cool is that. Sometimes Piper follows me and leaves a leak too. His mails always comes second.

SHE is watching me like a hawk for any side effects. I don't know if that's a good or bad thing. But if the "watching like a hawk" comes with tummy rubs and hugs, i am okay with it.

Life With Dogs did a wonderful post on Canine Hypothyroidism. Do jump over to read about it if you want to be in the know about this condition.

Urmmm Dommy, you really have to make up your mind la. Is she a cow, a nurse or an idiot? Or maybe just an idiot of a nursing cow? Hahahahaha ...

Gee, I'd really better run fast, fast, far, far, quick, quick ... LOL!

dear Dommy,

i just popped by to see how you are. i see you're still taking lots of tests and swallowing lots of nasty pills. i hope they make you better soon. Mr t had hypothyroidism too. he slept a lot, then he took the pills and woke up and chased cats again.

My Typist finally opened my package a few days ago. THANK YOU for the lovely stuff! My Typist put all my poop bags in the satchel. she's stolen my bandanna. she says she'll give me her purse in exchange. i don't know what i'm supposed to do with the purse. it's no use being nice to My Typist. i wish i could trade her for Your Cow.

take care lots, Dommy. BIG HUGS and Mwah! your friend, georgia little pea xox

tummy rubs are the best! soo you said they xrayed your heart? is it doing better, or did they give you different meds that won't react to the steroids? i hope with your new diagnosis and meds, that you will be doing much much better! keep up with the updates :)
