It's nice to hear positive updates, especially from you oldtimers. Jesse and yourself were a match made in heaven. Hoping you guys have many more years together, enjoying each other.

Thanks everyone. Jesse appreciates all the well wishes and i let her know as I work for her .

Yes Judi she is a wonder dog . I always thought of her attitude was more cat like than dog so maybe having all those extra lives are helpful

I forgot to add I removed the raw grounded beef heart from her diet as my butcher let me know they were raising it to $ 5.00 a pound . Well we started at .99 cents and then to $ 2.29 and stayed with it but at $ 5.00 the universe is telling me its time for a switch . The funny thing when that day came and she was almost out of beef heart my grocer had a sale for boneless and skinless chicken breast at .99 cents a pound and I said there is my answer to jesses new dinner addition and she agreed and said i like chicken

Now the chicken is cooked I worried about mixing the vegetables with it as the grounded raw beef heart that was easier to do but i added some additional yeast flakes and that got the job done and jesse cleans her plate

I love to hear that Jesse and you are doing well. I have not popped in lately, but it was such a joy to see a great update on that rabbit chasing beagle of yours.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks tami and barb . We were out today . She is so loud . I had a new neighbor who just recently moved in . He came out to say hi and said jesse howling reminded him of hunting with his hound dogs back in Florida . It gave him great joy watching this old gal in action

when we walk by all the other dogs on the other side of their fences they all bark well before jesse gets there . Kind of cheering her on . If i could understand them i would think they were saying go get those rabbits Jesse

Update on jesse

She is 14 years young today . She continues to amaze me . She is not fly girl anymore ( she would get a running start to jump into the bed ) She tries but misses the mark . She has slowed down a bit which means i can take her off her lead and let her walk free in the desert and not to worried of her running off to the next mountain chasing a rabbit

I have removed the final element of her raw diet which was the vegetables . I cook them now to help with digestion . I also added a milk thistle she had some stool problems earlier in the summer which seems to have been corrected

Her epilepsy including seizures and fear of loud bangs seems to be completely gone . thats been on the decline for some years now . Maybe the higher sugar in the brain may play a part but who knows either way we are very appreciative for that .

still goes for her 2 walks a day and one of them is chasing rabbits . She has lost some neighborhood friends . Thats the problem with getting old and outliving others but there is always new ones that come along

She is doing well and continues to enjoy her dinner and the things beagles like to do which we are happy about
