I'm not getting kicked out of bed!! YAY!! What was with that, anyways? My daddy has been threatening for years to kick me out of the room at night, but last night he said was glorious!

It all started as soon as I came to my furever home. Yup, I snore, but it's not a big deal, or at least I don't think so. The only thing that annoys me is that sometimes I wake myself out of a deep sleep from snoring.. Ughh that can get to me fast, but it doesn't happen too often. Usually, I'm laying on my back or something. My dad hates it.. He pushes me, yells at me, moves me - he does whatever he can to wake me up because apparently --> I <-- keep him from sleeping. If he has such a problem with me, why doesn't he just leave? hmmm? ;)

Last night he said was the first night he's gotten good sleep in a while. Imagine that! I couldn't figure out why, but then it dawned on me.. It was so freaking hot last night that I didn't sleep at all myself. I was on the bed, on the floor, in the hall, downstairs, back onto the bed.. MISERABLE! I almost wanted to ask my mom to give me a dreaded B so that I could sleep. You know a girl has gotta be desperate if she asks for one of those!!

Please say your prayers for me tonight guys - my dad can just suffer, but I need my beauty sleep!
Oh and a big thank you to my friends Kodee and Becky for being kind enough to let us share their bed at their house. I MUST put one of those on my Christmas list!!

It's been such a long time! Bad Sara.. Sorry I haven't written on here for a while, life has been insane!

Kosmo is doing better. Although he occasionally still has a bad bowel movement and a tummy grumble, his colitis issues seem to be pretty well resolved. I do have to be careful when I give him anything other than dog food, but we haven't seen any blood for quite a while now.. woohoo :)

Faithey on the other hand hasn't been doing so hot.. :( Not too long ago, I was brushing her out and noticed something sticking up on the back of her leg..! YIKES!

She of course went to the vet for that as well as she's been having some issues with reverse sneezing. I know lots of cavaliers reverse sneeze regularly (Kosmo does it!) but Faithey had a really severe episode, so when the vet biopsied her, I asked her to take a peek at her soft palate. The results stunned me! She has a swollen throat but not a long soft palate, presumably from allergies.. YIKES!

We then tried a anti-histamine -- Novo-Hydroxyzine and I don't know if it worked or not because she started reacting so badly that I had to take her off of it@! I could seriously not physically wake her up and it scared the crap out of me. I would have to pick her up to make her wake up and then she would get startled. She's finally back to her old self now, proving it by throwing up a rock in the middle of the vet's office floor..LOL silly girl

The results for the skin problems came back as pressure type ulcers with little allergic cells inside of them (eosinophils). Because she has had lots of problems, she's now being referred to a specialized Dermatologist in downtown Toronto. Her appointment is June 23rd so please keep your fingers crossed for us!

Right now I'm looking up what kind of food to change her to as apparently she's not allowed to be on a high fatty acid food before her appointment.. Hmmmm!

Hopefully we'll be back more often sometime soon! :)
