I'm not sure if Paul ever put his link up with his photos. He's not "Mr. Social Media Guy" http://krugmanphotography.fototime.com/Doodle%20Romp%20@%20Arbor%20...
Gwyn, Prenisone is a weird drug. When I was on it I was looking for things to do at 2 AM, which is very unusual for someone who sleeps till 8:30 AM. I had so much energy I borrowed our neighbors chain saw and when I told Arnie I was going to cut down our 10 foot tall tree Arnie didn't want me to use the chain saw and told me "if you cut off your thumb I will never speak to you again". LOL
I'm so glad Kona is getting back to his normal adorable self. Prednisone does send strange messages to our bodies when used.
Al, now that he's down to 1 pill every other day as I'm weaning him off, he is acting a lot more normal about his food. Still eating faster and more of his morning serving at one sitting but now he isn't moving over to Maggie's bowl to steal from her after he's done with his. He is still one pound under his high weight before the incident, so I'm keeping an eye on it. but he does FEEL heavier. It's good to see his old habits coming back.
prednisone makes dogs hungry and thirsty. You have to watch their weight. Nice photos. Thanks for posting.
I posted my pics in PJ's picture discussion also :)
Jolene, you guys were missed. Next time!
Gwyn, your pictures are great! I especially liked the one where all the dooodles are waiting for treats from me. LOL.
I posted my pics of Sunday's romp in PJ's discussion with her pictures.
Suzy, Your Ruffie looks like a mini doodle. Mine are too. We travel with them in one crate on the back seat with the car seat belt securing the crate. This keeps them safe from getting thrown around if there were sudden stops.
We have taken our doodle in an open jeep. We use a padded seat belt harness. He lays down when we are on a freeway/highway. I am sure he doesn't like that much wind.
But one of strange side effects that Kona has from the prednisone is big hunger! He used to eat like a bored kitty....nibbles here and there all day long when he felt like a drive by kibble. Zero food guarding or food aggression. Now.....he wants his food...NOW! And he's eating an entire cup at one sitting and then moving over to Maggie's portion. I have to take him to another room to let Maggie eat a decent portion. They share bowls, so there isn't fighting or aggression, just Kona eating more than his share while they are sharing. Today, for the first time ever......while I was on phone with Paul and walked into the other room, he stole a very large 1/2 of a sub sandwich fully wrapped in butcher paper and then in plastic.....and when I came back into the kitchen, just a few scraps of paper were left on the floor. Yikes! They have stolen butter off of the counter before, so I keep that pushed back, but this is the first full human meal they've stolen! I'm wondering how much paper they devoured! I'm sure it was Kona who got it down given his appetite with the meds. Lots of poop coming our way!
