My Fun Morning

On Sunday morning, Molly went with dad to help Uncle Bill with his timber frame project.
 Have fun, Molly!   I'm going to have some fun of my own!

Mom and I took a short walk outside.
I"m looking for that pesky chipper!
 For the last couple of days, I have been having issues with stumbling and limping.  Mom holds her breath every time I go up and down the stairs and I didn't get walkies because she thought that the distance on the road wouldn't be any help to me at all. 
She will be calling my vet today to make an appointment.    We already know that he'll be stealing my blood to make sure my liver isn't being compromised from these powerful drugs that I'm on and mom and dad want to know what his thoughts are on my stumbling issues and if we can't do something to help me out. 

Love ya lots♥


  1. Sending you lots of POTP sweetie, hope all goes well at the Mr Vetman, will haf ALL my paws crossed fur you
    Loves and licky kisses

  9. Hi Mitchie and Mom
    When Sambal was on really high doses of prednisone, the vet said to give her lots of omega 3 to combat the bad effects. She ate special food that was high in 3s and took extra fish oil even day. It kept her liver and other organs protected. We've got our paws crossed for you buddy.

  10. Thinking good thoughts & appreciating one day at a time.
    Miro and Emily

  11. OH MITCH.... we are sending you our STRONG POTP and have our paws Crossed fur the Dogtor to get this worked out...

  12. We hope the vet visit goes well. We'll be thinking about you!

  13. Sending you lots of POTP.

    Aroo to you,

  14. Mojo says only the best pups stumble, because she does it a lot these days with her hip stuff. Getting up stairs and into cars undermines her dignity. She does, however, still have a mighty crush on Mitch so he can rest assured that his charisma is undimmed. She's off to the vet tomorrow for more checks too, so we'll all be thinking of Mitch and sending him POTP. xxxx

  15. Hope ya get da stumblin stuff sorted out.

  16. You're in our prayers, Mitch!
    Did you have fun with your pickle and trying to find the chipmunk?!?!

  17. Dear Mitch - we are so sorry you are having some issues. Our Mr Bailey stumbles around some too but for different reasons. We sure hope the dogtor can give you some help
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  18. Hey Mitch, we are sorry you are having some trouble there. We hope the vet can fix you up so you can enjoy your walks with Mom. We got some of those pickles too, but Mom says she needs to pass them along to some pup who will play with them. She even put food in them for us. Guess we just are pickle pups:)

  19. Hey Mitch, sorry to hear you are having some issues and can't go on long walkies. Beckett, Keltic and I are sending many positive thoughts your way.

  20. Oh goodness so sorry. We had a lab that had liver disease. It was managed for many years with prescription dog food. We also had a dog that had seizures the drugs that were suggested caused liver disease.
    But our vet also did accupuncture and suggested we try to avoid the liver problems. It worked thankfully. And much cheaper than drugs and then liver problems and special food. We were grateful.
    I hope you get good answers from the vet.
    About the book. I wished that I had asked for a give a way copy. It's a keeper! You will enjoy. It is a light fun read. I read in only a couple of days. Hope your week goes great!

  21. Oh dear, Mitch! Parental Unit and I hope that your vet suggests something that will help you:-)

  22. Dear Mitch,

    It is nice to have your person to yourself sometimes, no?

    I am sorry to hear about your stumbling, friend. We hope it is nothing too bad and that Vet can make it go away. My person always says, "Getting older is fun and easy!" And then she either laughs or cries. I'm not sure what this is about. What is sarcasm?

    We are sending you many healing licks and wags!


  23. You sure are a handsome woofie. We hope the Stabby Place folks can get you sorted out.

  24. Oh dude! I sure hopes the vettie can find a good treatment for you!! I gots my paws crossed REAL TIGHT for you!!! Butts, I must say, you are lookin' as handsome as evers..just sayin'...
    Molly, you are such a good helper, I bets you didn't even play with your tennyballs once! hehehehe
    Sendin' tons and tons of AireZens!!!
    Ruby ♥

  25. Aww Mitch...we can relate...Miss Chloe has been having issues with her muscles too...she is on Metacam today which seems to be helping. We sure hope the vet can help. Sending you POTP!! xo Chloe and LadyBug

  26. More of us here who are well able to relate to "old dog" issues. I stumble, Teka limps. I have bumps, she has "bladder issues." We are both very jealous of that new baby. But our Aunt Marie told us "it is hell getting old, but it beats the alternative!" Much love from all of us.

  27. Dear Mitch, That is pretty scary when you stumble or fall. As we get older, it happens a lot to people. I am crossing my fingers and Hunter his paws in hope that it is nothing serious.
    Noreen and Huntr

  28. Hi Mitch,
    I hope your dr is giving good suggestions to make you all better. I will send you some healing magic bubbles,, too,, to help you not stumble.
