Poor Tonka

So poor old Tonka might have Vestibular (I call it Turning Yak disease).  As of this morning she has a serious lean to the right and can barely walk.  Vestibular has several different ways it can manifest itself,the most common is through infection or swelling (trauma) to the spine (the vestibula is under the jaw, but part of the spine).  The vet seems to think that when Tonka was attacked it compressed the nerves in her neck which is causing the signals between her brain and body to short-circuit.  We have sent blood work to the lab, which should tell us tomorrow for sure what type of vestibular it is.  Hopefully as soon as we know she can go on either antibiotics or steroids to help everything out.
Mean while if you see pictures of her standing at very odd angles, give an old lady a break!

Heavy Heart

It is with a very heavy heart that I let you know that one of Tonka's daughters, Skylar, was helped over the Rainbow Bridge by her family, due to cancer. Skylar would have been nine years old in January and is the first of my litters to pass away.

My deepest sympathy to Skylar's family.

Michele's World

I was having a 'moment' and thought I would open a window into Michele's world.

Don't visit it if any of the following applies to you:

1. You don't like dogs.
2. You don't like me.
3. Your really weird and you really dislike both me and my dogs together.
4. Odd things and people scare you.
5. You feel that political correctness is not strong enough and more censorship should happen.
6. I've told you I dislike you.
7. You think that I should be committed by men in white coats (this blog might give you the loop hole you were looking for).
8. You think shaving a dog pig-bald looks good.
9. I've dated and dumped you.
10. You don't have a sense of humour.
11. Don't want to hear about boobs. (If you have to ask, your not ready to know)
12. You're on a heart or blood pressure medication.
13. Don't like people pushing your buttons.
14. You don't want to open your mind to Michele's world.
15. If you can't accept that I see things very differently then most people, and hope that one day people can just accept me for what I am - Me.
