Way back in 2008, mom bought harnesses for me and for Maggie. Here we are heading for a hike at Sleeping Giant.
I was only a youngster at the time and I "lost" my harness pretty quickly because I pulled way too hard. Mom was afraid that I'd pull the ring right off my new harness and off I'd go never to be seen again.
Today was my appointment with Dr S, the specialist at Central Animal Hospital.
I'm not blinking my left eye (I have no blinking reflex) and it has developed an ulcer so I will getting antibiotic drops and goopy cream 3 times a day. I did get a prednisone taper but only by 10 mg once a day. The long-term plan right now is that I stay on prednisone for the next 6 months and it tapers gradually. As long as I'm on pred, I stay on the immunosuppressant, which means the blood thieves steal my blood to make sure these potent drugs don't damage my liver or any other bad stuffs.
I'm still a happy boy and I still have tons of Airedale spirit. While we were in the waiting room waiting to see Dr S, some small peep had the nerve to ride some nasty looking green plastic pony over to see me and he tried to pet me. I bark, bark, barked at him and told him this was not acceptable behavior. He backed off ☺
Tonight is pizza night at our house! Mom says I will most definitely get an extra crust for being such a good and patient boy!
Love ya lots♥
