Looking Better

Seymour is doing better with the increased dose of his Prednisone.  His head is no longer tilting to one side and he is walking better.  He is rubbing his eyes quite a bit, though.  We haven't heard from his doctor yet today.  I guess that autoimmune disease is still a big issue with Seymour and the medication is still needed.  He is supposed to go from a full pill to half a pill on Sunday - along with his other meds so hopefully he will continue to at least stay the same.  This really is a long process!


  1. How is your doggie doing? I stumbled across your blog as I am travelling to Italy with my chihuahua too. Mine has been sick for a while with heart disease but it's controlled. I really appreciate all the tips about your travel there. I really hope your doggie is better, wherever that is in your home or heaven. Jess & Dolce Xx

  2. I too wonder how Seymour is doing! I have a small chihuahua that I want to take internationally. It broke my heart to read of his sickness. I hope you all are well!

  3. I have not written on my blog for quite a while. But an update on Seymour –
    He lived for 2 1/2 years with medication and a wonderful neurologist with his mom and then join us. But in September 2017, we found he had a very enlarged heart and fluid around it. He stopped eating but I was not ready to let him go. I fed him baby food twice a day. I would send pictures to his neurologist showing how well he was doing. I did one more picture the day before Thanksgiving but Thanksgiving morning I found that he had passed away in his bed, next to his little sister Zooey. It was very difficult losing him, but I am glad I did not have to make the choice to put him to sleep. He was at home curled up in his bed when I found him in the morning.
