Good report from the vet!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm still here, just not writing much these days. My vet gave me the thumbs' up during yesterday's visit and said if I make it to my 14th Birthday in October she will be highly impressed. Hey, doesn't she know that us Wires are an incredible breed worthy of awe and adoration?  The prednisone is keeping the histamines low and the tumors aren't showing back up and the great news is that I've put on 2 pounds! My humomma was scared that the bigger belly was another tumor, but the doc said it wasn't and was just from my eating habits returning to normal. I say it's thanks to all that great special soft canned stuff the doc gave my hudaddy to feed me! He adds it to my hard food along with some brewer's yeast with garlic. Yummy! Speaking of food, I wanted to show you some of the pears that my humomma picked off the tree next to our driveway. This is just part of what they got. I don't think I like pears, but I bet Katie and Libby do. Guess we'll find out after they're ripe!


  1. Oh Tucker, that's made my day, you take it easy, and don't get trying them pears they might give you wind!!

  7. That's the bestest news, Tucker! We are sure proud of you, upholding the reputation of the breed. Keep up the good progress, and enjoy every bite you eat. Including the pears. We've never tasted pears, but we like all sorts of other fruits, so we are guessing they are yummy, too.

    Speaking of which. Seems we remember there's some watermelon in the frigde. And Moma doesn't like it. And our Girl is gone. We'd love to share some with you! Care to join us?

    Love and with so much pride,
