End of an era for me. Necropsy findings.

February 7th, 2010 · 7 Comments · Uncategorized

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!I actually was doing okay with the grief thing around 3-6 days, the one week mark on Friday was a set back. I learned in a grief class when my husband died that the reason it comes in waves…your brain cannot take the enormity of it […]

Raven has gone back to heaven, where he came from.

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!I just ran across this in my bible the other day: “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth, And making it bear and sprout, And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to […]

Power Mushrooms and a visit with his bobcat buddy

January 28th, 2010 · 7 Comments · Uncategorized

A big THANK YOU to Maximutt’s pawrents for sending Raven some Power Mushrooms! Also to Jake’s Mom for attempting to do the same through Angel Exchange, but the P.O. lost them. 🙁 So, he finally got on them yesterday and this morning he felt strong enough to hop to the upper pasture and ask to […]

3 Month Ampuversary!

January 27th, 2010 · 6 Comments · Uncategorized

Three months today! 🙂 Last night, Raven felt pretty back to himself, a good night. I’ve had to resort to feeding him a commercial zoo carnivore diet I have on hand for the big cats. It’s a balanced raw meat. I mix it with rice and some kibble to not upset his system too much. […]

Another rainy day, baked cookies, hanging out.

January 24th, 2010 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

Raven had another restless night. Odd, I wish I knew what it was. He fusses and flips sides back and forth and pants now and then. Finally, around 4-5am, he sleeps soundly. I don’t get it. I may try a Tramadol tonight at bedtime and see what that does. For the first time, Raven hopped […]

We had a good night

January 23rd, 2010 · 6 Comments · Uncategorized

Raven’s a bed hog. Always has been. Normally, when he starts to crowd me off the bed, I give him a nudge and he scoots over. But the last few weeks, it’s harder for him so I just sleep like a contortionist with my legs hanging over the side and a crook in my neck. […]

My “Moany Groany” man

January 21st, 2010 · 8 Comments · Uncategorized

The roller coaster continues. I spent the day worrying about everything being our “lasts”. I came home from work like usual, expecting that for the first time (since he was lethargic and weak all day) that he wouldn’t be bouncing at the door. It was dark, and indeed as I opened the door, I heard […]

Raven is coughing sometimes

January 20th, 2010 · 6 Comments · Uncategorized

Part of me doesn’t like sharing the not-so-good news, but I feel the need to document it and also just vent my fears. In the last day or so, Raven has gagged and coughed now and then. He did a reverse sneeze last night. And he foams at the mouth/nose when he gets excited like […]

Bouncy boy this morning

January 18th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

I just wanted to share…this is from this morning. I give a hard boiled egg as a treat to the dogs sometimes. Here are he and Betty begging for their egg treats. He’s sure not acting sick! 🙂 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hf5v2shEmws And here he is *after* his roll on the rug, I didn’t get the camera in […]

Riddled with mets, but he doesn’t know it

January 17th, 2010 · 8 Comments · Uncategorized

On our way to the doctor with Betty. The chest xrays were downright scary. A week or so after his amputation his lungs looked clear, with one questionable met. His trip to the ER five weeks later showed about 6 or 7 tumors in his lungs, these were debated among Auburn Univ. ocologist, my vet, […]
