It's me, Koobuss.
It's been a while since I last talked to you, but, as you'll see, I've been a busy dog. Let me tell you about it.
A couple weeks ago I got a haircut. And this time, instead of doing it herself, my mom took me to a professional groomer. We went to Petsmart. I guess they never cut a fox terrier before because when I was finished I looked like a poodle, sort of. I had a big puff ball on my head and I wasn't happy. It really wasn't me. Talk about an identity crisis! My ears blended in with the puff ball and I looked like I had a helmet on. Early the next morning my mom took the scissors and cut the puff ball off my head. I didn't even fight her since I wanted that puff ball gone, too. I was very unhappy with that puffball on my head. Now you can see where my ears are and I at least resemble myself again. I'm also grateful that my mom didn't take any pictures. Enuff said.
The other day I had my follow up appointment at the dogtor's. Remember last month he said that I was almost middle age and had an under active thyroid and bladder stones. Yuck to all of that! He put me on a bunch of meds for all that stuff. So, at my follow up appointment they took some more blood and tested it. We got the results back today. My thyroid is now in the OVER active range (see, I'm not middle age yet), I have lots of energy, and the protein level in my peepee is going down, which means the bladder stones are going away. YEA!! So, he adjusted my medication, cutting the thyroid dose in half, and eliminated the antibiotic. But I still have to take the pills for my bladder and go back to see him in a month. I'm hoping by then all the stones are gone and I'm back to "normal", if there is such a thing as "NORMAL" for a wire fox terrier.
One thing I do know for sure about NORMAL for a wire fox terrier is that we definitely do NOT have puff balls on our heads!!
So, friends, now you are caught up on what's been happening here with me in Koobieville. Hope that all of you are doing well and that none of you have stones in your bladder or puff balls on your heads. : )
Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,
