Happy belated birthday to Jesse - wishing many more years of rabbit chasing and following those dog instincts.

an update on jesse

its her 7th sugarversary which i find quite amazing for what i witnessed 7 years ago when this journey began

she went a whole year without no evidence of a seizure from her epilepsy amazing for a girl that could get 1-3 a month very grateful for that relief

her sugar has been good so good that we are a couple weeks from being 3 month use of her insulin we bought in January . its funny the lot number was what a forum member said that was not good and should be replaced . her dose is quite small and actually lately has been reduced . when your on a roll i like to hold onto that for as long as we can . so we will take it day to day and any change off to walmart

we did notice a lump on her chest maybe a couple years ago maybe the size of a quarter . i elected not to explore what it is because of her age and not going to explore any invasive treatment as what she went through early in the journey. a deal we made together . so far no problem an it doesnt appear to be growing anymore . no affect on her quality of life

she still enjoys her morning walk , afternoon rabbit chase and after ,her single homemade meal that she surly lets me know she enjoys with a howl of excitement .

we had a foster for a bit a pug mixed called gambit it was my daughter in laws dog from college who got a bit nippy with the baby grand kids . he went on the pet smart adoption program and got his forever home with a family with older kids and a husband and wife team he looked quite happy as he pranced off to his new hope ( good program for adoptions )

so we continue with the program and hope jesse keeps having her uneventful life doing the things she enjoys

thanks craig ,bill,judi,daisy and mike

the support is what gets us over the top from people like you

for newcomers there is always hope .it may look quite bleak in the beginning but things usually find a better path . sometimes if difficult you may need to put more work into it and usually will be rewarded with a happy pup

i discovered this with jesse

Congratulations Jesse Girl! 7 Years is amazing especially when you had to go a non-standard route to get her regulated.

I hope her uneventful life carries on nicely for both of you. Uneventful is great!
