Some of you from Debra's blog are wondering what the hell is going on and why am I blackmailing her. Well, It's all just for fun. Things were getting a little boring and last week Monday I mentioned in my blog :
By the way everyone, thank you for those comments. Some of them are outrageously entertaining. You know how easy it is to entertain me too. Yeah, just wave the pretty shiny things and the paper money and I'll take those incriminating pictures off my blog.
Debra and I took that piece and we both ran with it. It was fun. It also gave her the idea for her Monday morning blog post which was yesterday. If you haven't seen it, you really have to go over there and check it out. I laughed so hard I was in tears and I almost spilled my coffee. She picked my all time favorite Monty Python Flying Circus - Blackmail video for that segment in her blog. Hilarious shit.
Since I learned about Pebbles and her diabetes, I have made major changes in the diet of all my dogs I adopted the diet that Joanne made for her dog Ruby. It's called Ruby Stewbie. Since I started them on this recipe Pebbles is slowly starting to put the weight back on. She gives me all kinds of grief when I give her the shots but it's a necessary evil. She goes back to the doctor in about four weeks to check her blood sugar and kidney function. The kidney function is what I'm worried about, so we will see.

So sorry my dear readers. I was busy looking through my mail to see if certain monetary items made it through the mail this morning. I will have to call my dear "friends" today and let them know that the amount has doubled. BWAAHAHAHAAAHAHAAAA! *cough cough hack cough* Sorry, I should look into that cough. I seem to have caught it while on a trip to Maine. Beautiful place, nice for taking wildlife pictures.
Anywho, Yes I have been a bit busy. David was off Friday afternoon and I wasn't in the mood to go anywhere after my trip up north. I did a bit of housework and I played with the puppies. Pebbles is starting to put on a bit of weight again. At least she's looking better and not sleeping as much. Her drinking water is down too. so things are working. She's not out of the woods yet though. She see's the vet in about four weeks for a follow up. So we will see.

I'm so sorry about posting so late. Wet weather and an expected cold front that's set to pass through here at 3 pm today was keeping me in bed this morning. I'm hurting like nobody's bizz. But on to what I promised.
|Pebbles aka Gator Bait a year ago, healthy.|
Saturday David and I took Pebbles to the vet to find out what I already knew. She has diabetes. But the shit of it all is that she will have to be on insulin and of course a diet. I will get on with that later here. She has never been overweight. She has always been a trim 11 or 12 lbs. The vet noted that in her file since we rescued her that she never wavered on the fat side. She's always been very healthy. In fact she and the other puppies, Spunky and Lucy, see the vet every 6 months for their heartworm shots and every 12 months for their rabies and other shots. They also get a chewable treat that keeps the fleas and ticks off them. The fleas are really bad here because of the wet weather and feral cats. They are very well taken care of and loved by us.
Well, a few weeks ago I noticed Pebbles started drinking way too much water and having to go out to urinate. Sometimes she never made it outside and there would be a puddle or 2 in the kitchen. What really alarmed me was when I noticed I could see her ribs and pelvis. I got scared last week and told David we need to get her in to see the doctor.
|Pebbles, her bones are showing. It's so sad.|
They took her in right away when they receptionist saw her and how scrawny she looked. It was heartbreaking. They weighed her, which is now 8.3 lbs. and took blood to see her blood glucose and insulin levels besides the other chemistry and CBC lab tests and urine for kidney function tests. I broke down when they said she had diabetes and her kidneys were damaged from all the protein loss. That is near certain death. She isn't going to be with us for too long. I asked if it was possible to get her back up to her regular weight and keep her on insulin. The doctor said she may or may not survive. Now listen here. I have seen doctors that were proven wrong and I aim to see that through with this little girl. I asked for her to be treated as if her kidneys were fine. We went round and round about it and I won. So they gave us insulin and supplies and showed us how to inject her. The vet tech gave us a diet plan for her and a schedule for regular blood tests and such. In the meantime, I am keeping my patient happy, I hope.
I found a few fantastic blogs and websites for diabetic dogs. Pebbles hates getting her insulin shots and I found what Joanne Becotte did for her dog Ruby was insightful. She has a wonderful blog about her diabetic dog and she unknowingly is helping me with Pebbles and her diabetes. She has a fantastic level of information that is great for diabetic animals and humans and where to find what you need at low prices. You should read her blog just for the fun of it. it is chock full of info. If you have a dog or cat with diabetes, do your homework and explore the internet. It is full of wonderful eye-opening articles and blogs out there that will help you.

It's all about the Internet. Yes, it's always about you, isn't it? It's never about me! Did y'all hear? There's a study out about Social Media and how it leaves people feeling socially isolated and depressed. Well yeah! These people spend way too much of their lives staring at their phones,
bumping into poles, falling down the stairs and off cliffs and shit like that, reading about their friends online that are doing awesome shit and then they go home and cry in the shower because they can't have a great life like so-and-so. Big fucking deal. Get out there and make friends around you, hang with them at a bar. Then take some seedy pictures of them all passed out and drunk and shit then post them on Facebook or Snapchat. Yeah, some people have fun lives and they post it. Others post bullshit just to get attention. That's the Internet.
I get depressed all the time. I don't have many friends that I can hang with around here in town. Everyone is busy at work. I do have friends around the world that read my blog, Twitter feed and Facebook pages all the time. I hope that there are times that I lift their spirits, otherwise, I'm not doing my job. They let me know by leaving comments, which I dearly love. By the way everyone, thank you for those comments. Some of them are outrageously entertaining. You know how easy it is to entertain me too. Yeah, just wave the pretty shiny things and the paper money and I'll take those incriminating pictures off my blog.
Anywho, this past weekend was pretty quiet. I did watch a few movies on HBO and of course The Walking Dead. I would never miss that. Also, I caught up on my South Korean online telenovelas. They are great TV shows in Korean with whatever language you want in subtitles. Of course, mine is in English. My favorite was Goblin: The Lonely and Great God . I finally finished that one and now I'm on Saimdang Light's Diary. this story is starting to get really good. I highly recommend them.
|Pebbles(Gator Bait) last month before the weight loss|
Lucy went to the vet for her shots and we found out Pebbles has diabetes. Yes, poor little Gator Bait has been losing weight much too fast the past week, so we took her with Lucy on Saturday to the vet to find out why. I kinda felt it was diabetes because of the fast weight loss and her constant thirst. She lost a lot of protein thru her kidneys and I got really worried about her. She looks like skin and bones now. It makes her look so much smaller than she really is. She was never fat to begin with. All our puppies are very healthy and we watch their weight. The doctor said it could be hereditary. So we have to watch her diet more closely. The doctor said she'll be fine. I'll be posting more tomorrow about her and the diet I'm giving her and the other two puppies.
|new meme for #45|
Well, I have minds to warp and #45 to pester on Twitter, then on to Facebook to check in and see who's hating who and if I'm blocked yet from posting those incriminating photos of my friends at the bar last night. I also have a house to clean and laundry to finish. Yeah, there's always that wifey shit to do too.
