thats a difficult question to answer . the only change jesse sees is maybe a 2 week trip to see my family. she enjoys going and enjoys coming back

there has been some that moved and most did just fine i think one person moved back to the state they left but not the same house

it really depends on your pup most times a laid back dog with little anxiety about things will do fine

age i guess can play a role but in good health and spirit things should be ok . maybe you can take bazz house hunting . if people dont like it thats not the place for you guys

dogs have a wonderful quite way of communicating with us and understanding are moods and they want to please us as much as we want to please them

I think Patty moved a few times didn't she? I don't she logs in as often anymore could you try and message her?

And I'm glad things are going well for Bazzle and hope they turn around for you.

We've moved back and forth between Wisconsin and Florida for the last three years and Charlie has adapted well, even though he's blind. He does keep tabs on us, and looks for me when I have to travel for work.

I think as long as you are together he will be happy.

I'm sorry you're having a tough time.

Sorry ur having a difficult time.
I was in a situation a couple of years ago that went downhill rapidly and I had really no choice but to move very quickly with my lot. Alfie coped with it really well. It took him a while to find his way around the new place but other than that he didn't really seem bothered by it at all. I think he was happy enough to know that I was there and that was what he was concerned about.

While I understand u not wanting to get into the details I just want to say that being in a bad situation takes its toll on u so please look after yourself.

Alfie- 11 1/2yrs. 8kg diagnosed June 2008. Insulin - NPH, Novorapid & Caninsulin - a work in progress! Dx left brain neuro focal lymphoma 4th Dec 2012, still fighting on!.

Maggie has always coped with moving and she has moved three times since diagnosis. She is fine as long as she is with me. I am sorry for the trouble - what a tough position. I have to say if I was worried about how he would react, I would probably do the same and tough it out. It is not fair to you but life doesn't always work like that - doesn't make it any better. Thinking of you and hoping things get better.

I'm sorry for the challenges that are causing the hypothetical question but definitely congrats on 2 years.

Ali was used to moving prior to diagnosis (she moved 9 times in her lifetime), but after diagnosis she moved 3x with us. It did create the need to adapt her insulin and food based on the positive or negative stressors in a new environment (she was very sensitive to excitement and blood sugar would drop/rise). But she always adapted well to her surroundings.

I also had the luxury of being home with her to figure out what changes I needed to make and based those off of our home blood testing. Each pup is individual and you know Bazzle best.

Wishing you peace of mind with whatever you decide.

Thank you all so much for your replies, it's nice to know that I have such a great support system when it comes to all things Bazzle. I think I'm going to follow my plan of waiting, but now I feel comfortable saying that if things get too bad and I feel like I can't handle it that moving is no longer out of the question entirely. I just have to keep in mind how he handles change and adjust accordingly. Just like when my niece and nephew come to visit, I know they drop his blood sugar, so I always give him a little less when they come over.
Bazz and I have only been through 1 move, and he adapted very quickly. Of course that was pre-diabetes and blindness. I think that's what worried me most and why I wasn't considering moving as an option. Now I feel like I have some confidence back
Thanks Again!

I,m just starting to gather everything and move. As long as were together we make it work and were happy and adjust.

Its amazing what goes through our minds eh. Can I get a quick vacation in? How much can I change his routine. Will he get through the snow this year. I don't worry any more. We just do it. He knows I,m around to help him if he needs me but he doesn't lol.

Don't worry about Bazzle, he,all adapt to whatever makes you happy

We moved with Abby several times, but not while she was diabetic. Having said that, I am not sure she would have stressed at all...as long as we were there for her.

I hope everything goes well, no matter what you decide.
