Yes, it is sadly very true. I have a few medical issues going on inside me right now and it is a bit scary. It happened fairly quickly, too, so it took my human, K, by surprise. One day I was my loveable, happy, goofy, excitable, fun, energetic, trying to break free of my leash self and the next I was lethargic and coughing and barely walking. So I humbly request for the Power of the Paws and prayers to help me heal and get back to 100% perfect me!
I have the best Pack! Thanks Porgy and Silvius! I don't want to lose myself, either! I currently have three medical issues. First, I have very bad arthritis in both my hind legs which makes walking uncomfortable. Hence, no leash, because I just don't go that far anymore. I also have an inner-ear issue in my right ear, so my balance is slightly off sometimes, which also makes walking a bit difficult and thus keeps me from wondering too far from home. Finally, and the worst, I may have heart disease. Right now I am on antibiotics because my Veterinarian wants to first check if I have congested lungs. If I do, then the antibiotics will clear up my lungs, the coughing will stop, and I will breath easier and feel better. But, if my cough does not go away, then I most likely have heart disease. K does not want to think about that right now. Neither do I. Instead, we are thinking of all the prayers and Power of the Paws coming my way to cure me. Disease has no place in my heart, and arthritis has no place in my legs or body. But leash-free adventures have a place in my future! I'm just sayin'...
