Snoopy's Back!

Hello there everyone!

I am please to report that Snoopy's back home at Dog Woods and is up and about.  The great news is that her liver is back to 'normal' - (some cell count which I fail to grasp) and she's been constantly asking for treats - which is very normal Snoopy.  She's lost some weight because of her liver issues - which is good for her because she's alot more active being a lighter basset.  It could be that she's alot hungrier since she's now recovered, hence the hopping and prancing about - trying to get our attention so she'll get fed a treat or two.

Am glad she didn't have to stay at the Vet's for very long.  Infact in a mere couple of days, the Vet called to say she was ready to come home.  Missing home sure worked wonders on Poopy girl who had to be put on a drip for a couple of days.

We're not exactly certain what caused her liver problems so we're monitoring the environment to keep an eye out on possible things that may cause liver problems.  The Vet said something about bacteria that rats carry that may cause liver to react.  Admittedly, I've seen a couple rats scuttling about ... so maybe that could just be the problem. Kill the rat and save the dogs!  Easier said than done since rats (which I gather is related to squirrels) are equally cunning ... our traps don't seem to be working for some reason.

A feline addition to Dog Woods would be a helpful alternative but unfortunately no cat would ever come near Dog Woods (what more consider to stay) - for obvious reasons. 

Ratty thoughts aside,  I'd like to wish everyone of you good furry and fur-less readers a very happy Christmas and a Wonderful new year!


  1. LOVE that image. Merry Christmas to you! We're glad to hear Snoopy's home, and thankfully, Sissy is the world's only chronically lean basset. It's healthier for her...

  2. Oh, I didn't realize Snoopy was sick. Glad she's home and hope whatever it is doesn't ever come back!

  3. Great news on Snoopy - hope the illness doesn't come back and that all of you have a great year upcoming. Happy Holidays to all of you too.

  4. That's wonderful news. Since her liver disease we have to keep Morgan on the thin side and she was always hungry. Now we give her half her normal amount of dog food and the other half is green beans. They fill her up, but don't have a lot of calories. She loves them and she's in great shape now.

  5. Glad to know she is back!
    Happy Holidays to you all!
    Kisses and hugs

  6. Superb news! Just in time for the holidays! :)

  7. We're glad the pack will be together for Christmas!
