Happy Ruby update:

She's put on 0.8 pounds since the last vet visit. That's 10% of her body weight she's added. At this rate, after one year she will weigh 39 pounds, almost 5 times her original weight.

Just think about this for a second from a dog's perspective: eating so much yummy food that you gain enough weight to turn into a wolf.

Her kidney numbers are way up, which apparently means "ha ha oops, looks like she'll be around for 10+ years, but she's gonna have kidney problems later in life from the damage of this infection". That's a lot longer than the 3-10 months we were told before. Better to prepare for the worst and be pleasantly surprised, I guess.

3 fluffy pigs in their outside run having no idea what to do now that the big man-tjing has taken their hiding log away.

Good news though; seems that the roots of both of Lee's incisor teeth survived her face plant and they are slowly growing back


E. And yes they squealed a little in surprise

Turns out one of my coworkers is friends with someone who works at a local shelter and so tomorrow they are getting two cases of Trader Joe's cat tuna, some cans of prescription renal cat food and two small bags of renal cat kibble. Also, most of a gallon of chlorhexidine. This worked out well because I'd been thinking of donating to them but it's a bit of a trek with a heavy shopping cart. And I always feel a bit better about life when I am able to help with something.

Those piggies are so handsome. The outside run is a cool idea too.

She's sunning. Don't bother her.

When I went down to get her, I said "come on Goose! Let's get treats!" And she raised her head like "how absolute DARE you not being an assortment of treats to my tanning bed, you absolute poo poo mam, you crap hound of snack delivery!" So I went back up and got a bag of jerky and that was good enough to get her to go in and eat breakfast and drink water. Because she did this first thing in the morning.

It was an hour long saga.

On the other hand, being food motivated makes it easier to trick them into their carrier or into the car, etc. and suddenly they're at the vet wondering what happened.

Goose actually LIKES the vet. She thinks going to see Dr. Bruce is the best treat, even if it means riding in a car.

My sweet little Tanuki was the same. A goober but also the personification of affection.

I really want another dog because I'm missing my boys when I'm home alone. I only get to see Goose and Darcy when at bf's unless he brings them to my house and I miss having a cold nose wake me up when I'm not there.

Goose will get up on the bed with me and then push on me as hard as she can to make me get up when she wants to go on midnight yard adventures.

Exactly, lol. Lately it's "GET UP GET UP GET UP I NEED MORE FOOD" and it turns out she's got 3/4ths of a bowl but doesn't want THAT, she wants chicken. At 3am.

An old picture from when I had found a safe place for Tanuki and Smudge. Everything was terrible except for those two and Tanuki going on to bond with a giant tree still delights me.

I just sanded the inside of Ruby's collar because it was matting her fur by being so rough. Did you know you can sand leather? I did not.

Bonus image: thermal imaging of a dog belly.

Pretty hosed up if you ask me.
