The Carnival Is Over.

The Carnival is over now. It wasn't much fun. At least we weren't scared by the fireworks this year. We didn't hear a thing where we are. Tupa is very il and the vet got the results on his throat problem. He has level three cancer of the most aggressive form. Now the vet is saying he will have to be euthanized. The other tumors were bad but this is worse. Poor boy we didn't know him long but we all liked him. He even stole three of our dinners one day and we all laughed including him. Mom just gave us some more. His ear apparently just sealed over and he would of been stone death that side. Mom and dad tried their best. The lady that is paying his bill is also really upset. He is the poor guy that came here with the terrible ear infection and the huge lump infested with maggots under his chin.  

He came in very thin and already gravely ill although we didn't know it at the time.

Mom is a bit down after losing the dog with distemper on New Years Eve, Losing the house January 15th, car never seems to work, washing machine broke and floods all over the floor, she can't get to the doctor because the car is not reliable, and she still has bills to pay from the move. She is happy about the fact they saved nine puppies recently. The three on the rock, Joey and the five dumped at the gate. So two down but nine in front. Talking of Joey here is his favorite spot. he says it's his shelf forever and noone has the heart to tell him that very soon he won't fit there anymore. So we let him dream on. there are some things a dog has to find out for himself. Joey doesn't know he is growing very fast. He doesn't have a mirror or a tape measure.

Joey has been able to win Guga's heart though and now they play together. The oldest and the youngest are bridging the generation gap. We are never too old to play! Humans should follow this advice too. We had a video of them but it won't upload will take another one with mom when I can.
Topi has been making good progress and is very different from the robotic, little, distant dog who first came here. He is showing a lot of emotion lately and is happy. We are glad for him because all that spinning was no good for him. He stills spins a bit but not all day like he did a few months back. We have a great video of Topi. 

Daisy lives with Topi and is jealous of every bit of attention he gets. Well that is it for now. Tupa is still alive and we obviously can't see him because of the car problem.
