Sorry I've been a little bit absent lately. Long story short, my geriatric dog has been out of shape lately and requires a lot of attention and care. He is 17 and a half years old, according to the vet he would be around 110 years in human years. Last week he fell down the stairs at 3 am, woke us up screaming and got hurt kinda bad... he's getting better, but he needs a lot of love and painkillers. As with any old body, recovery is slow.
On the bright side, we now have a funny safety door blocking the stairs, and my cats have been having lots of fun playing with it
My doggy has been with us since I was super little and we spent many hours playing together every day. We grew up together. He has been with me in every situation I can think of, and he means the world to me. The vet always mentions that he is in an extraordinary shape for his old age, all his organs are functioning normally, he doesn't need any medication, he still has all his teeth, etc. All the special care he needs is some help with the stairs and a diet full of fiber and low on fat. He has some minor arthritis, but he still walks and plays with my cats. Actually he has never had any major health issues, he has always been healthy... all of the troubles he's ever had have been caused by falls, this and one broken ankle years ago when we were playing fetch. The vet was actually surprised he could still play fetch
He's partly at fault that we have so many cats... he likes cats, but he absolutely hates dogs. So we never had any other dogs, but cats kept coming in every few years. My goal is to make sure he gets to 20 years old still in great shape, and one day beat the record for the oldest dog alive (I think the current record is over 29 years).
Oh and I also got a small cold, but luckily that came and went rather quickly.
So I'm going to play catch up with my notes and comments, and finish all the things I want to do for Artisan Crafts week at projecteducate
. I think I haven't submitted anything in over a week, I have a huge backlog but I don't like submitting too many things at once, I feel like I'm spamming your inboxes x.x I'm a tiny bit low on DDs so they would be very much appreciated! I'm also sorry to the people waiting for their commissions, I'm going to work extra hard this weekend to finish as many as possible
I dunno if I should write more personal or craft blogs like this, today I felt like it to vent some of the stress I've been having worrying over my doggy. I'm not sure if they would be interesting at all
and I'm still so angry that the Ravens won
Everything will be all right in the end. If it's not all right, then it's not the end.
