Snow and update

I know I haven’t posted much on here.  I try to leave the blogs for the people who still have living babies and want to update.  But I do owe it to everyone and mine to do an update once in awhile.    So I know I posted about Bosch having possible cancer.  We still aren’t sure if it is and what kind.  I know the tumor has grown and pretty much doubled in size in 2 months.  At that time the vet had looked at fluid & said it had “angry cells” and an infection so we treated with antibiotics which seemed to help some with the fluid. Well when finished it seemed like it swelled back up so we started again and finished that course.  I couldn’t tell a difference so we took him to the vet.  We decided to culture and do an x-ray.  The xray showed the tumor does involve the bone but he isn’t sure again what kind ( We did not do a biopsy) they can’t remove the tumor where it is and with Bosch’s age I am afraid to put him under anesthesia.    The culture came back staph infection resistant to almost all antibiotics only one that would touch it and they don’t sell it for human use any longer because it causes a type of anemia to humans that could be very dangerous.   So Bosch has been on those now since Sat the 9th.  I think it is helping some.

We have been having trouble getting him to eat.  I was cooking and he ate some of that for a few days then no more then we finally found a food on Thurs of this past week to get him to eat along with rice & hamburger and bone broth.  He stopped eating all of his supplements any thing he could smell or on the food that is.  If it was in pill form then I could get it down him.

So over all we are doing good and hanging in there.   The girls are doing great.  🙂


Here’s our snow day today

    Now, Bosch, stop worrying your Mum, okay? I’m glad the new antibiotic seems to be helping and well done on finding a food he will eat, together with hamburgers and bone broth… He’s certainly making sure that the menu is to his liking, and quite right too! I’m sure you love spoiling him as much as he loves being spoiled ❤️

    Love the pics, that is a LOT of snow. Meg would have a field day. I can just see her romping with her Rottie cousins. Nice outfits too!

    Big hug for you all,
    Meg, Clare and Angel Pie

    Oh goodness, they love that snow don’t they?? I love Bosch’s jacket, he looks so adorable with that handsome grey mug.
    I’m glad they found a medication to help, and spoiled or not you’re getting him to eat and getting the medicine into him. That’s a win!!
    I’m really glad you posted. We’re not going to run out of room here, and i have no doubt that many like myself want to follow your journey. You’re such an important part of this family, and it also helps us to support you, who has done so much for so many here.
    Keep fighting Michelle, you’re doing a great job!! Hugs to you and your family ❤️❤️

      Yes they loved playing in the snow today. I let Bosch wear Snickers coat his is thinner than hers and she didn’t care. She loved being out and rolling around in it. Yes, I am so glad he is eating.

    I think i can speak for everyone when i say that it is always lovely to see you post about your furbabies! Angel Sassy may not be around in spirit, but she lives on through you all!!!
    The videos speak a thousand words…! I love how the girls are playing hide and see with each other and Bosch is Da Boss, keeping guard and making sure his kingdom is good!
    I sure hope he feels better and pulls through for you!
    Sending lots of love and kisses to you all!

    You know you are family, always. I’m glad Bosch is eating again, I know all too well how stressful it is when they don’t. I’d never had to deal with a senior dog before Nitro, so the “old age” thing was new to me; along with all the issues that come with it.
    The snow pics are fantastic, like little kids with a day off of school. Keep up the good work, you are an incredible advocate for your dogs! Hugs!
