So here we are last night going to see the vet AGAIN, I mean I toles my mom over and over, we likes our new vet but do we have to go so many times!!!!!

So mom and vet Nancy was all worried about me so mom took me overs when hers got home from work, I kept telling hers I was fine, but you know how MOMS are!!!!

So friends this is the scoop...............Mom has noticed some different things happening to my body since the big move, and maybe even before Mom is not sure.  First of all and I am a little embarrassed to tells you all but if I don't mean Maggie will do a whole post about it and make it a big ole joke...........so when I bark I poop, when Mom picks me up I poop, I don't evens know I do it, it just happens, Mom talked to the vet about it when I had my stone surgery and he said it was most likely a neuro thing and of course there is no meds.  Mom said we would just deal wif it, and we do.

Then my tongue started to get in the way of everyfing, sometimes I fink it is going to choke me, and I am not sure what to do wif it, ..........we are just dealing wif it too.   Another funnier fing I do is bark at dad, alot, sometimes I forget who he is and then I remember.....lol..........

And sometimes my back leg forgets how to work, and I have to walk around dragging it awhile and then it remembers.  Yesterday while mom was working I had a longer episode wif my leg and Dad called mom, so when she got home we WENT TO THE VET!!!

Oh friends, my mom was all upset on the ways over, and I had to have a long talk wif her.  I toles her over and over I was gonna do just fine, and I also reminded her no matter what wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy down the line, I was always gonna be wif her anyway.   Here is what I know and I am sharing it wif you friends.

When a human loses a loved one their heart just cracks and breaks and hurts, but somefing you humans don't realize is that those cracks and breaks is where we go to live, deep inside your heart forever and ever, healing the crack, and loving you just as much.  I fink when I reminded my mom of this, hers had her fingers in her ears singing so her didn't have to listen to me.

The xrays were fine, and my blood work was good , so no disc or spine problems. Vet Nancy agreed wif vet Dave, that it is more than likely a neuro problem, it could have been stress of the move in combination wif my blindness, my surgery, etc. etc.....stress does funny fings to us dogs to.  She said the best thing for me is to rest, and she gave me some special medicine that helps wif any pain I might haf.  Mom and her also agreed staying at the vet would not be a good fing for me, cos I cry real tears when mom leaves me all overs my fur, so Mom got to take me home!!

I am still eating well and drinking, and when I can I still run around and play, and I snuggle my momma.  Those are important good things for me.

So I am doing just fine, and I am home right where I need to be.

Love you much
Stella Rose

    OH Stella, you are so right about those heart-cracks... and I's messing my 'furs' right now with some tears - for you mum, not you, cuz you just let us know you's just getting on with life. Which is brilliant... still; it's a fact that age comes upon us and stress gets multiplied and the wheels start falling off the trolley. If you make the best of each day, even if some days are less best than others, it is all that can be wished for and nothing beats being among the loved and loving. Sending POTP and loads of the capital 'ell' my furiend. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. Mommas are a little silly about those things. You just have some unique ways of dealing with the world, Stella!

  3. Stella Rose, you are just such a sweetie. Here you go trying to make your Mom (and us) feel better whenyou are the one who is having to "deal" with life. Getting older just sucks. But you have the right attitude - just get on with life and you will manage the best you can. Your Mom loves you so much, so give her some extra smoochies to let her know how much you love her too.

  5. You gotsa good attitude Stella. Now you jus gots to pass it on to Mom. PawHugs....

  6. You said all the right things to your momma even if she did have her fingers in her ears. We have our paws crossed that with some rest you can feel better soon. Don't let Eddie go for any rides on your back okay?

  7. You still have impawtent lessons to teach your mom that is fur sure! Yes, the move and surgery would have put a lot of stress on you. Time to sit on the porch, drink some sweet tea, and chillax. As for pooping when you bark, that isn't so different from peeing when you sneeze and Lordy do hoomans know about that! Feel better soon!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  8. We hope those symptoms will go away with time. Maybe it's just stress. We'll be thinking about you and sending lots of POTP.

  12. Stella Rose, we send you lots of purrs and rumbles to help you through your health problems. We know you are brave but your mom is going to worry about you anyway. So get plenty of rest and snuggle lots with your mom. And your dad too.

  13. Stella Rose bless your little pug heart. I just love what you wrote about us pets lliving in the cracks of broken hearts!! You are way wiser than Confucius.
    Getting old is not for sissies of any species we have to just trudge on taking baby steps and enjoying each day. I know as I have had many ups and downs since October. I 100% agree about stress and illness. I was so stressed out when my peeps were away on vacation in June I took a terrible downward spin.
    Love and kitty kisses Madi your bfff

  14. Jeez I have missed so much I had to go way way back to see that you moved to the corn fields in the country ~ no longer city folks ~ sound like Green Acres only Dad is Ava Gabor. Oh Stella with the kidney stones my Lee is crying because they hurt so bad she has her first stone NOW and spent last Wednesday night in the ER on a pain drip. And you poor thing had a bundle of them why those are enough to make poopie. Getting older the body just does not do what we want it to do but love understands this.
    Take care
    Sweet William The Scot

  25. Hi Stella! I'm sorry you have been having some issues lately. Sending some good pug juju that you feel better soon!


  26. Anesthesia can cause damage, that's why it's always a risk. A friend's elderly Aunt had surgery, and the Anesthesia damaged her kidneys. She had to go on dialysis. But she did eventually recover, she just needed time. So hopefully the same thing will happen with Stella!
