Darned dogs. I knew having a bunch of old dogs was going to be bad news at some point. We are now at that point.

Last week Pepper started stumbling a little, and Friday he was diagnosed with a brain or spine lesion. He can still walk, but he is very slow. He is on steroids, but I don’t know what the outcome will be. He is at least 11 years old, but I don’t know how old he really is. Kitty hurt her back last night and is under close watch at the emergency vet. More than likely she will be having surgery tomorrow for a herniated disc. She is a fat dachshund, so it is not totally surprising, but I am really worried about her. She is 12 years old and has a heart murmur. She was my first dog, and she has a great sense of humor. Keep both of them in your thoughts, please!

    Sorry to hear this Cheryl. My sisters little dog just had surgery on it’s back. It’s doing better but it was expensive.

    Is the little black dog a Schipperkeye?
