Dog Shows, Diabetes and Duties

Windy practices for world domination by overpowering a toy as large as she is.

Happy Valentine’s Day.

Please forgive my silence. I have been sick and recovering from an injury, but I am about 90 percent now and will be back to blogging.

We watched the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show last night. We were pleased the wire-haired dachshund won the hound group. Westminster has not had many dachshund winners, so we will be cheering him on tonight.

Jake loves to nap in the winter sun.

However, when the terrier group is up we must root for the miniature schnauzer.

Max is doing well taking his insulin shots. He gets seven units morning and night. He knows he gets a treat before and after each shot, so he waits patiently. Alas, Jake and Windy also know about tidbits and must get theirs as well.

Caring for a diabetic dog is not as complicated as you might think. This week I will devote more toward how we handle Max.

Now, if you haven’t bought your furkids anything for Valentine’s Day, you still have time.

Max is a sweet boy and a perfect addition to the pack.

About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.
