Stephanie,

Today was D day if I remember correctly for Alki. Hopefully the news is all good. She's been quite a trooper through this so it would seem to me that when she gets home she deserves some extra treats.

Barry

She had her last treatment today, and everything went well - except for the three accidents on the freeway heading over there which stopped up traffic badly enough to make us half an hour late. So the vet didn't have time to do the exit interview, she said we'll talk next week.

The only remaining problem is the straining to tinkle, and they want another urine sample to see if the bladder infection is still hanging around. So I was following her around the yard and she just looked at me like 'oh no you don't' and ran back to the house. She didn't know what I was up to, but it can't be good! Ugh, the things we do for our doggie friends!

Here's Alki this morning hoping to snag a piece of bagle. I don't know if the radiation treatment has worked yet or not, but one thing's for sure - she's none the worse for wear. Our biggest concern was making sure that the treatments didn't make her suffer, and she has weathered it all like a champ!

What a sweetheart. Hopefully she was appropriately rewarded with pieces of bagel. That may not be the best food for a puppy, but in her mind it is.

My fingers are crossed on the words from the vet.

Barry

Who could resist that little face! I could just hug her right up, what a precious pup.

The latest news on Alki - is all good! She has been cleared of the bladder infection, and is having no trouble tinkling now. Her energy is back, and she spends her days back in her spot in the front window, barking at delivery trucks. She's energetic and eager to go for walks. It's like this whole summer never happened, except for the regimen of pills. But to her those are just a snacking opportunity, since they are delivered in yummy canned dog food. In fact she's supposed to get them at 11, but she starts bugging me about 10 - sitting in front of me and staring at me, putting a paw on my arm and looking at me with those sad eyes, quivering with hunger As if!

It sure is great to have her back to her old self. Now we're all looking forward to taking a break at Beverly Beach in a couple weeks!

Good for you, Steph! Alki too of course.

We did a great 6 mile hike this weekend on the Superior Hiking Trail with our 11 year old corgi. The hike length ballooned as more lakes, hills & forest beckoned. She was real game about the whole thing with her short legs going and going, though got quite tired at the end. Little friends are great!

That's good news Steph. Little Alki has a strong support team out here all sending good vibes her way. Little dogs, big hearts.

Take care,
Barry
