I had to get him a cortisone shot from the vet, helps it go down real fast, then I had him on rimadyl for 2 weeks. After he started dragging me out the door I decided no more rimadyl for him. Luckily I had a whole bottle I had just bought for his mom for her cancer pain. (put her down in April) so they didn't get to hit me with that bill as well. Hope he gets better soon, if you need to know the sling I got, let me know. I got it on ebay, reasonable price, fits a pretty big dog, and got it over night. like ordered it at 9pm and got it by 10am the next day. AMAZING. The vet had never seen a sling like it.
    I wish we'd taken our little BennyBoy to a different Vet... the one we took him to said he had arthritis in the spine and that it would only get worse ... there was no treatment....
    About 6 years after the diagnosis, we had to put him down because he couldn't stand to eat or relieve himself... We were never given anything for his pain or condition... I still miss my little BennyBoy...
    No he wasn't a big dog.. mix of longhaired dachshund, German Shepard, and Sheltie... but we got him from a neighbor when our girls were 7 & 8... they were 23 & 24 when we had to put him down so he had a very long life as it were...

    My boy is 9 this year, and I tried the towel for the first 2 days, he cried every time, it made him pee on my foot every time, and it hurt my back and i couldn't steer him. This sling I got is amazing, it goes around their thighs at the hips rather than the stomach and attaches to a collar, there is a handle back by their hips, and then an additional leash you can put on their collar. I was able to take care of him myself but before that had to have my mom come over and help with her "Grandchild" for a few days.

    I started the last little project for my SS tonight. It's gonna be purrrttyyy.

    I found my leftover jingle bells and put them with my giftee's things to add to the fun when I wrap. I still have shopping (fabric, notions, pet treats, etc.) to do but I shouldn't have any problem getting the mail out on or before Nov. 14th.

    I'm going have to put bell in mine too. Going have to get biger Box. I'm having so much fun. Not good at posting but love reading it. If you need more info.from me I could use a new seam ripper or 120" tap measure, any easy fast quilting patterns that you are tired of. I love surprises just have fun like I am.

    I have been shopping for my Secret Santa and just keep adding to the box....but this weekend I emptied the box onto the bed to organize better and now I want to just keep it all! I should have just gotten 2 of everything so I wouldn't feel this withdrawal pain from having to send it off!!! I like the idea of adding bells.....got to go shopping again!

    #1, I don't do E-Bay. And #2, I had some of those somewhere. I made ornaments for the family with those big bells, to hang on a doorknob....wonder if I have any somewhere....HMMMMMM!!!!!

    I went out today to pick up some odds and ends, and when I got to the register, my total was $42. I may have to pare it down a bit.

    Boy are you still going to be guessing! So many of us are putting jingle bells in our boxes that no one is going to guess!! Found some really cool stuff while we were setting up the quilt show today. Gonna get some of it for my Santaee too!

    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    I made a couple of things today, just keep adding this and that's and those and some of them. I need to start wrapping all these little things pretty quick and not to much wrapping paper or I won't have room. Already had to get the large flat rate. Now I have to choose between a couple of things 'cause I'm way over budget. Maybe I'll get her name in the SP for Nov or Dec, then I could just send it all. Now that would be awesome!!

    You better not have my name. I get a nasty migraine from chocolate or coffee. No chocolate allowed in this house.
