I think that Iíve found a solution to Lilyís reluctance to eating her breakfast. For the past 3 weeks, Iíve been adding a layer of crushed PureBites Freeze Dried Chicken Breast to the bottom of her bowl and so far, so good.

In the meantime, she enjoys spotting squirrels in the back yard...

Squirrels come on to this side of the fence you will have more fun

Thats good news mike. Eating can be challenging for some diabetics and as dogs get older like humans appetite may decline

The overwhelming joy it brings when we find that our babies are doing well..Chicken is what turned Suzie around with eating. However, even though the DVM encouraged even more chicken, he now is watching her BUN=39 (from 34), stating, "Don't change diet yet until we repeat the BUN"= 7/1/2018. So....now searching for? something to sub chicken with if need be. I am so glad that Lilly is liking her meals..She is so beautiful and looks soooo good.. Lilly is sooo loved by you

Happy Birthday to my girl, Lily. Sheís 11 years old today and going into her 6th year with diabetes.

Here she is trying to stay cool on a breezy day. Itís been a hot summer around here.



And showing off her bandage after stepping on a thorn and getting an infection. Sheís on antibiotics for the infection.

Happy birthday Lily

you and your partner have done a wonderful job and hope to see many more years ahead of you and living a happy dogs life


Its been hot here to. I have to bring a gallon of water to pour on jesse before she has her rabbit chase . Fortunate for us we have a dry heat and the water creates evaporation cooling kind of like us when we sweat

Living in the desert we have the land of the poky poky and jesse has it down to a science pulling them out with her teeth . Funny girl

keep up the good work mike

Gives us all hope and encouragement that diabetes, as I know with even myself, is very manageable and livable.

And I live across the lake from you Mike, in the Toronto area, so I know the humid heat. But nothing but rain off and on for the last week. Grass is green again.

Bill, Raysaint and jesse girl... thank you.

We had a refreshing cold front come in from Canada last night. No rain, but way more comfortable today.
