Another Update on Chester..........

Posted on January 14, 2009 at 7:04pm 9 Comments

I got a call from Chester's vet this afternoon. She said the results from the fructosamine test showed that his blood sugar had been level for the last few weeks. Which is good news.....it means he really doesn't need to have another glucose curve done and we don't need to adjust his insulin or food.



Now the bad news..........In May, when he was first diagnosed with diabetes, he had an ultrasound done and there was a mass on his liver. I never had it tested, because, frankly, I… Continue

Update on Chester - the Diabetic Corgi

Posted on January 13, 2009 at 8:22pm 12 Comments

The vet was puzzled by what happened to him this morning. She checked his eyes and said they seem a bit cloudy. Cataracts maybe? She palpated his belly a bit, because when we originally took him in (in May) for his Diabetes, the ultrasound caught a mass in his liver. She believes that if it was cancer, he would be gone already. He's not jaundiced at all. She took a blood sample and did a simple sugar test. It came out to 237, which isn't bad for a diabetic dog 12 hours after his last dose of… Continue

Scary morning for Chester and me.

Posted on January 13, 2009 at 9:17am 12 Comments

Chester's been acting a bit strange the last week or so. I think his insulin needs adjusting.



This morning at 5am I got up to go to the bathroom and asked Chester if he needed to go out too. He acted very very strange. He wouldn't move away from the door and didn't react to my voice at all. He sniffed A LOT. He went into the guest room and sniffed himself into a corner. He didn't react to my voice at all and he kept running into things that were right in front of him! When I tried to… Continue

Cardi vs. Pem

Posted on January 5, 2009 at 10:21pm 7 Comments

It's funny.......since I was a youngster, and had our first Corgi/Beagle mix, "Corky", I've always been fond of Pembrokes. Almost to the point of totally ignoring the fact that Pems aren't the only Corgi. I've not seen many Cardis around my area (Northern Indiana, USA).



But since joining MyCorgi.com I have seen more pictures of the most gorgeous Cardigans! And I've totally fallen in love with them as much as Pems! I have to say, nothing beats that tail-less butt.........the cutest… Continue

Diabetic Corgi

Posted on January 1, 2009 at 11:36am 6 Comments

I have formed a group called Diabetic Corgis. This is for anyone to join. It's mainly to provide support to owners of diabetic Corgis, but I'm not limiting the group to just that.



I almost lost my sweet Chester to diabetes last May. My vet diagnosed him on a Friday, but didn't want to give him any insulin for a week because he'd been on steroids for a neck injury. Well, that almost killed him. By the following Monday (Memorial Day) he lost the use of his back legs and had been crying… Continue

I suffer cabin fever big time. Once the sun comes out and you can spend some time outdoors it does make you feel so much better. In the winter is when I buckle down and really work on my computer stuff and settting me up for when the nice weather arrives I can slack off quite a bit. It helps keep your mind going and being focused on something you want to reach really does make you feel good when you make progress. I think the shelter Corgi was meant to be. In someways we want them for we feel sorry for them and that makes us want to jump into it. When the time is right..the right one will be there and it will all work out. I know some try to get new things to make themselves feel better but that is always just short lived. All in all...glad the little guy found a home. Good luck with your plans. They say Bananas are a mood food....add them into your daily diet. hugs

I'm sorry for your loss. Its hard and your going through a real hard time w/money right now...great combination for double depression. If you think your able to feed this dog and explain to your vet that money is extremely tight right now I think they will work with you. Mostly that dog in the shelter needs is love and a home. You and he need each other. He can help fill that void of loneliness and he needs you for the same reason. BUT...do what you feel is in the best interest for him. If you truly can not afford it then don't do it because it will only be worse on him if you need to replace him and you'll be crushed to have to let him go. Only you have the answer. Is he young? Has he had a full work up as far as vaccinations, heartworm prevention, neutered, and dewormed w/flea prevention? If so he should be good to go for awhile. I hope this helps in easing the decision and brings a brighter light at the end of the tunnel. Please let me know.
