SO I went to see the Vet yesterday and on the way overs I had vision of sugar plums...well CANDY ...well lots of CANDY all floating around in my brain, and mom was trying to figure out why I was so quiet cos usually I am throwing a 2 year old temper tantrum, I had to explain to hers I was concentrating on the candy floating around in my brain.........she just shook her head.

So we get to the Vets and I look around for those LARGE bowls of candy you see in Walmart, but all I saw was NUFFIN, NUFFIN at ALL>..............................I turned around to walk right back out that door but Mom scooped me up and we went back to see Doc. Nancy.

Now I loves her but she had NO candy in her pockets, so I was pissy.  I just set on that cold ass table and looked at hers while she talked to my mom.  I practiced my zombie stare and when she talked to me, I plugged my ears, just so she understood how disappointed I was in hers.  I really faught hers was a better Vet than the Marine.

Soooooo...once again, she is checking my heart, and ears, and other areas I am not going to dignify and she decides I need medicine for inflammation and pain.  So I get two new meds and no candy.  WTH.  

So they also discussed wif my mom about contacting the Ames Teaching Hospital to see about putting me on BRAIN FOOD. if she said Snickers candy bars I would not have had an attitude on the way home wif my mom but she DID NOT.

So now we are waiting to see about the new food vrs. my C/D cos we don't want anymore stones do we?   No we want a milky way.

I am getting just a little sick and tired of being promised candy and not getting a dang thing.  I did get supper when i got home and a pain pill but that did not count.

Although that pain pill did knock my little grouchy butt right out, and my dreams were filled with Reeces, Butterfingers, M&M's.......................................................................STELLIE ROSE

(p.s. from mom.  Stella has started on pred. and Tramadol to see if it helps her.  She is eating and drinking pretty well so that is positive.  I am going to do more research and see if there are somethings we also can feed her that would help her but I have to watch because of the stone issue.  The vet said some dogs have good luck on the "Brain Food" and others see no changes.  She still is barking at butch like she does not know him, lol...he does not find that real funny.  Its kinda like having a 90 year old grandma live in our house. She doesn't know when we touch her feet anymore so trimming her nails is easier.   We are staying positive.    Deb) 


  1. Paws crossed that you feel better soon Stellie, oh and that you get sum candy and SHARE it wiv Maggie Mae!
    Loves and licky kisses

  2. We hope Stella is feeling better soon!

  3. Sending Stella lots of hugs and keeping our paws crossed for her. If only Ruby wouldn't feel us touching her feet, she puts up a huge struggle when we trim her nails.

    P.S.: No candy = no fair!

  4. We're sorry you didn't get any candy from the vet but we sure hope the new meds help you feel better.

  5. Do they know the cause? It sounds scary, and she's so young!

  6. What??!!! No candy?? Not even a little piece of desiccated liver? (That's what my vet office always has.) That doesn't seem fair! Well, I hope that despite having gotten no candy, that you are feeling better very soon. (I have no idea what that brain food could be.)

  7. Stella Rose, at least dreams of candy are better than nothing. You could be dreaming about the crazy ferret:) Seriously we hope you get some relief from the meds and the brain food kicks your brain into gear. Meanwhile there must be some sort of dog candy out there.
