Sweet Annie... it can be so challenging with these older pups.

I just talked to my great aunt who lives in Portland and I was surprised to hear that you have had such hot temperatures. Down here in the Sacramento Valley, we had one of the nicest end of August / beginning of Septembers I can remember, rarely above 90 degrees.

Here's a recent example of Annie's BG. The 6:30am reading was unusually high, possibly due to a different brand of canned food that I tried on 9-29 and 9-30. Anyhow, it shows how her BG varies during the day with her lowest BG at feeding time.

10-1
6:30 292
10:30 215
2:30 243
4:30 219
6:30 153

10-2
6:30 162
10:30 142

The afternoon might be interesting because we plan to do a little grooming and then take a trip to the doggy self-wash. It amazes me how a 15 year old, blind pup, can fight over grooming and a bath!

Annie is at the vet clinic (spa?) today. You might recall she had a growth near her right eye. It has grown and I figure it was time to have the growth removed. While there, she will have a dental cleaning and FACE GROOMING (she won't allow us to groom her forward of the ears!)

The house is soooo quiet!

Not sure what I'd call the growth, something like a wart? It was about the size of a peanut that covered ½ her eye socket. I had to spread the eye open to put in her eye ointment because the growth covered so much area.

Just got a phone call from the vet, Annie is done and will be ready to come home in a couple of hours. Will have to guess at her insulin this evening since she will get a reduced dinner. Thinking ½ dose will be OK.

Maggie had one a couple of years back - it grew and obviously started bothering her because she kept scratching it and so she would have a bloody eye every time we turned around. It healed so fast.

Hope she does good and has a few treats with her pearly white teeth.

Glad that Annie did well with her "spa day". Jake also had 2 growths that grew right on the edge of his eye lid. I had them removed when they started to rub his cornea.
