Re: A Yorkie Story

Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts, love and sympathy. I came back on here tonight thinking I could finally make this post without having a very wet face - but I can't. :( Clyde was a...

Re: A Yorkie Story, The Final Chapter - Reunited

Our beautiful, brave, loving, gentle Clyde is at rest. He went to sleep peacefully in my arms on Thursday morning after we'd taken the painful decision to call in the vet.

At last he's reunited...

Re: Poll: Is your diabetic dog a mutt or a purebreed?

Yorkshire terrier - pedigree/purebred

Clyde is of noble birth! He's descended from Ozmillion Mystification (I thinks that's the right name!) who was a Crufts Best in Show in the late 90s. I tell...

Re: Soaphie the sophisticated is an angel October 29, 2015

It's very early days. Be kind to yourself. The grieving process is just as real for our much-loved pooches as it is for our human family.

We are lucky enough to live in a National Park in the...

Re: A Yorkie Story

Antonia, Clyde loves his food, and if that ever changes I would know the time has come. I can only think of one occasion when's he's turned away from a bowl full of food!

We're really hoping...

Re: A Yorkie Story

Re: Scruff the Schnauzer, Rest in Peace 10/31/15

I'm so, so sorry to hear about Scruff - he was such a character. Remember the great times you had with your little 'big guy' - you gave him the life a dog should lead - outdoors and free.

Re: Soaphie the sophisticated is an angel October 29, 2015

Tami - that's a lovely thing to do. You get your 'dog fix' and some doggies get to be loved and helped. Win, win. It doesn't mend your broken heart, but does give you some comfort.

Re: A Yorkie Story

Re: A Yorkie Story

Since my last post, Clyde seems to have become older, weaker, slower, more confused, and we are seriously agonising over what path to take.

Most of the time he stands and stares at nothing. He...

Re: help with newly diagnosed pup

Look at it this way - diabetes is very treatable - it's not a death sentence and although it's daunting for you at first, your lovely Taz will just be happy to be feeling better.

There's lots of...

Re: Odor coming from diabetes or insulin

Is it her breath or her body in general?

Bathing and grooming her can remove the natural oils from her coat, and an off-the-wall suggestion might be to give her time for her natural body oils to...

Amy - I was also worried about dose strength. It's all too easy to overdose. I asked about the zinc out of curiosity, because I take Vit C + Zinc and it seems to boost my immune system.

Re: How the Hank Turns

I so agree with that. Clyde did have the surgery but the supporting structure in his eyes wasn't strong enough to take new lenses, so he has limited vision and can only focus at about 10 feet. He's...
