We got a lot of snow today. Duke loves to be out with his daddy when his daddy shovels. Duke hates it when he has no place to potty on the ground. His daddy cleared out a small place, but for the most part it was icly under the snow.
Duke is our dog and is in teh picture at the right. This pisture was taken in 2009, but we have about that much today and this culd have been the same scen today.
Duke has arthritis in his back near when his legs connect. He got that one day getting out of the car and soething justhappened. My husbad was doing something on the other side of the car when I watch Duke jump out and then could not move and was yelping and crying in pain. We took him immediatley to the vets and that was when they diagnosed him with arthritis in his back. He was put on some pain killers and some glucosamin and some other drugs for a while. Every now and then he will be in pain and so stiff that we need to give him his pain killers.
Duke also went through a horrible time when he had gotten Vertigo. I took him 6 months to be almost to the point that he was before he got his arthritis. You can read about what the signs and symptoms of what Vertigo vs what a stoke looks like on my article: Vertigo In Dog's and Cats.
Well after Daddy (Dennis) shoveled the driveway,the plow came through and he got to take Duke for his walk. Now Duke already had his dinner and gave him his painkillers for the night and he got his walk. He will be snoozing the rest of the night.
