Dr. Carol, Here is a picture of Dandy. I hope you don’t mind that he is sitting in a chair. I took lots of pictures. He was much more cooperative in the chair. As you see, he is a very serious Westie. We are enjoying using your Naturally Healthy Dogs book. It certainly does have a lot of useful information in it. I especially like the natural approach to caring for dogs. Dandy is doing really well. He loves the cold weather we have been having. He still stays in bed late in the morning. However, after his leisurely wake up, he has breakfast and goes up our long stairs to “work” in Tom’s office. He has a few ailments as to be expected at his age. Most have been taken care of. He had an “ear stroke”-a broken blood vessel in his ear. For a while, his right ear would not stand up like the left. However, it usually does now.
He had testicular cancer, but is cured from that. He has two issues now. He has Cushings Disease. lt is under control with Lysodren, but that has caused him to gain weight. And of course, being recently neutered has contributed. We are working on that. He also does not hear well, but we are working around that, too. As I have written earlier, the Senior Paaws do help him a lot. He has a lot more energy. Even at almost 14 years old, when he thinks he is going for a ride or a walk, he runs around the house and he barks and twirls.
Not bad for 14! I am so glad I heard your ad for Paaws on the radio.
Thankx for everything!
Leewood and Tom W.
