    Yes, I took Lady today to have accupuncture. My accupuncturist inserted about 8 needles, removing them right away. Some where for Lady's digestive track, and some for possible CHF. Lady is 14 years old. She is the love of my life. I know she will need to leave me one of these days, but I pray every night, that she give me a little bit more time. I know she is trying hard to do this for me. I spend part of my days in tears, but then when I look at her I remember all that she has given me. She is eating little these days, I added olive oil to her baby chicken food tonight. I am hoping that this will help her to have a BM. She has been going 3-4 days without. I gave her a Doxidan the other day with success, but I do not want to push it. Yes, I do know how sad it is to lose your beloved pet. Working in Hospice for the past 12 years does not make this any easier. I will pray for Lady's safe journey home. I know I will see her again some day, Blessings, Phyllis

    I know she is your baby .... Your right, it won't be easy, but you have the right thoughts.

    I have always gotten help remembering that I'll see them again .... They will be happy and healthy and thrilled we're together again.

    I have had my horse worked on for the past 2 years ... every month like clockwork .... Acupuncture and chiropractic sessions are excellent preventitive treatments.

    I'll be thinking about you ... it'll be ok ...

    Hi Phyllis,

    I am so sorry Lady is really showing her age. It's so hard when our pets leave us at any age. My eldest pug is 15 years old now! I still can't believe it. He was my first rescue and I have two others who are 7 and 4 - also rescues. I also run Southeast Pug Rescue and Adoption here in GA, so you can say I am a pug lover. :)

    And, I know where you are coming from. I hope the acupuncture helps Lady. I have thought aboout it for Rocky as his back and hips are pretty bad these days. I do have him on pain meds though.

    Thinking of you,

    Brenda

    Thanks so much for your reply. I am keeping my fingers crossed. Lady did poop this AM and has eaten some food. Some time I would love to talk to you about your involvement with Pugs. They are such a magnificent breed. Blessings to you and your Pugs. Phyllis

    Sounds good about Lady. Phyllis there's a forum called Pugvillage where a bunch of us crazy pug lovers talk about pugs and many other things as well. Please join us over there and you'll get a lot of encouragement with Lady.
