We're doing good!

Here I am looking at my mom as she is typing. Mousse is right behind me. He's always by my mom's side, too.

We think I look much better. The oncologist vet changed my medicine to 3x a week and added a stomach medicine called Cerenia. My appetite is good. My mom is still working on my diet. Stanislaw my beautiful shiny cocker friend suggested B-naturals site with some great recipes for home-cooked meals.

Uh, except my mom is no cook. Her mom is a terrific cook but my mom didn't inherit that gene. However, the diet is simple like hamburger, broccoli, squash and supplements;sometimes chicken and vegetables, sometimes salmon. My mom thinks she'll go on my diet except for her she means to lose weight. For me, it's to be grain free--for a while. This is a test to see if it will help defeat the cancer.

Look at this!! My mom is fostering a weimerainer (sp?) she is named Luna. That dog has RED eyes--not!
Nobody and we mean NOBODY suspected this dog was going to have puppies. She was skinny and we were plumping her up to have her spayed. But wow! PLOP!! PLOP!! Yesterday morning suddenly we had 2 beautiful grey brown babies, a boy and a girl.

We are so surprised we can't think of names yet. Luna is a crazy happy girl, very smart but we can't adopt her out now until the puppies are old enough. So we get to have her 2 more months. This is a happy thing.

My mom will soon have a book or two up on Amazon. I guess that makes THREE jobs but writing is what she loves after me.
Okay, Mom, I'm taking away the keyboard now. Time for some serious cuddling!!

Great news, River. We try to keep Phantom on grain free meals too, but he is so darn picky that sometimes we just have to give in to get him to eat.

Luna is gorgeous. We hope things go well for her and her sweet pups.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Stanislaw said...

We are thrilled that you are doing so well! And I take Cerenia too... on long car trips to help with my automo-pukies. It works super well. That food sounds tasty too. Fishies and veggies make for BP's fav feasting combo.

What a puppy surprise! We hope their lovely mama takes good care of them!

Glad to hear you are doing OK River, we have been thinking about you.

Boy Luna didn't look big enough to have puppies, no wonder you were surprised. Well since Luna means moon we thought Sin for the boy puppy (SIN: Sumerian name meaning "wisdom." In mythology, this is the name of a god of the moon and son of Enlil.) And for the girl SELINA: Possibly an English form of Latin Selena, meaning "moon." This name was first recorded in the 17th century.

Aww that last picture is sooo cute! I'm glad you're doing better. I'm sure your mom will try out the diet. I think grain free is so much better for them.

The puppies are so cute. I can't wait to hear what names you choose.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Good to get an update on you, River. You certainly are looking good in that photo. We hope the special diet really helps.

How about that, 2 surprises. :)

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Mazel tov, Uncle River! What a surprise about the new puppies. We bet Luna is so grateful she was rescued and in a good, safe home when her babies came.

We're glad to read you are feeling better. We still have our paws crossed for your complete recovery.

So what are the titles of your mom's books? So we could check them on Amazon.com?
