  4. Buckwheat, our Boston terrorist is prone to seizures and has been on a pheno regiment for several years. We have a stronger sedative that we use for special, exciting circumstances (New Years, 4th of July, house full of grands, etc..). He still has occasional seizures, but much less severe. We have gotten pretty good at recognising when they may be coming on, at which time we pick him up, snuggle him and calm him down. It works well for us.
    I feel for you and your pup. Best of luck and warmest wishes.

  17. Was thinking of you and him off and on all day– so busy with Christmas stuff no time for checking in here—- I’m sad for you— but– I found out long ago we have to live in — Like Rush calls it–Realville– I learned that when our daughter was diagnosed with melanoma— so you listen to what all the specialist have to say and you give it what you’ve got and let life take it’s course. Love him as much as you can while you can.

  23. E-hugs and prayers your way, Sondra.

    A short while back, we lost one of our kitties to cancer after both chemo and surgery. So I grok the emotional roller coaster.

  26. We love you too Sondra, and JR and Rummy and all of your family. I will say an extra prayer for you all tonight.

    I hope you can get some rest tonight. Sounds like he’s a fighter, and I have great hopes you will come through this alright.

  27. A big virtual hug to you all (and skritch for Rumsfeld). Thoughts and prayers out.

  29. Sondra, sorry to hear about your pooch’s problems. My ol’ pup, Izzi, experienced the same seizure problems your Rumsfeld seems to be experiencing now. It’s not an easy thing to contend with, and does make one feel rather helpless when your dog suffers a seizure at your feet. My best to you and Rumsfeld.

    Comment by John Venlet — December 2, 2012 @ 8:01 am

  30. Your psychiatrist was right. Take care of you. That’s what Rummy needs right now so that you can continue to be taking care of him. Nothing left to say that has not already been said except…

    I love you!

  31. Bless your heart!
    We were told back in May that our Gus had 4-6 months to live – prostate tumor. He’s now living on borrowed time, and makes me continue to laugh lots, each and every day. When questioned about ‘letting him suffer’ – I was able to say without any doubt ‘he will tell me when it’s time.’

  32. And next time you see a girl wearing sunglasses in the pouring rain remember that maybe she’s had a loooooong month of stress and spent the last 24 hours or so crying and fretting her heart out and getting no sleep…

    But I’ll bet she’s the same beautiful girl… inside and outside.

    (JR watching? No? Then [[[hugs]]])

    Keeping you in our prayers….

  39. Okay, I voted for the isolated incidents that never repeat. Who is responsible for this election fraud? I demand a recount, review, recall!

    Best to you all and Rummy. Curious, though, how does Smurfy respond–does he sense the seizures beforehand? that could be cool to help.

    I don’t feel bad about having to shoot my cat twice a day (with insulin).

    Best fishes from Periscope and Spark, too. love ya.

  40. My wife and I had a husky shepherd mix that developed epilepsy about 8 years on, Survived on a phenobarbital regimen for 3 years. By then we had gotten a Shepherd/Collie who used to alert us when th first dog was about to “seize.”
