Yeah...a LITTLE much...

UPDATE: Added 5/5/2011 at 12:47 pm
Jadah has a DIAGNOSIS :) It is a FCE--Fibrocartilaginous Embolism--did a quick internet search and if you want to read more about it clicky, clicky on the linky :)

So basically...acupuncture (lots of it), massage (lots of it) and physical therapy (lots and double lots of it) and she should recover. To do agility? Not sure...but to walk and be a dog. Yes :) Which is all that matters!!!!

And...great news, after acupuncture yesterday, today Jadah was actually able to GET UP ON HER BACK END. This is great news :) She is wagging her tail again and is happy :) So excited and happy! Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts and everything!!

Day 116: Off Switch
Crackers...off :) Agility is Crackers...on. People always come up to the husband and ask if the dog is ALWAYS like that...jumping up and down, barking like mad, just crazy. NO. Anyone that knows me would totally understand how I would NEVER allow a dog to act like that all the time. Nope, he is mostly comatose when not doing agility. All my dogs are pretty much like that. Klink, Lynn, Ace and Crackers have natural ones...the rest of the dogs have been conditioned to have an off switch. Yes, Even is included :) Her's took a bit more time to install, but now, she chills :) I can't have 7 dogs in my house and have them all buzzing around constantly...NO, NO, NO.

Day 117: Spot :)
So Spot's here :) He's staying with is for a few days while Donna, Joe and Jadah head down to
Madison for Jadah's appointment (scheduled for today--like right now). He's doing well, came right into the pack and has "assimilated" quite nicely :) I laugh as he is taller than all my dogs except Ace...so he makes my dogs (Even Gator who is 20.75 inches tall) look teenie :)
He absolutely adores his sister Lynn :) They have been playing non-stop since he got here :) It's really cute and he is having a blast :)
His OTHER sister Even...well, lets just say he doesn't really care to be her friend...he thinks she is a bit "too much"...

Day 118: Even Steven :) P-S-Y-C-H-O
**I** personally don't get it, I mean, SURE, she has sort of an intense, creepy look like Jack Nicholson in "The Shining"...
And she is a bit spazzy...the husband would say WAYYY Spazzy...
And yeah, she moves really fast and has no concept of personal space...
Ok, so she stares a lot...and makes weird faces.

Whatever it is, Spot thinks she is just too much and he does his best to avoid her...
We see this, slightly weird face, but adorable none the less...
Spot sees THIS...

We see a cute puppy, just staring up at us :) Wanting to be petted.
Spot sees nothing but PSYCHO...
Heck, I bet Lynn also sees Psycho, but I guess she's used to it and accepts Even for what she is...completely and utterly tweaked out on meth, 24/7 :)
She does have calm times, like when she is sleeping...or if the entire house is COMPLETELY still.
Until something moves, or a noise, or any activity...any activity...
I think she'll grow on him :) She is determined to be his friend...to the point that I think I would consider biting her if I were Spot. But, just this am, he wagged his tail at her. As if to say "Hello, how do you do"...and her response was to run full tilt at him, play bow, squeal and then jump up into the air while bitch slapping him in the face with her front paw...then getting the zoomies around the coffee table about 40 times...meanwhile, he looked at her in pure disgust and jumped on the couch to lay by Lynn :)

He'll warm up to her...I think... :)

Day 119: Boyz...
If you two are buying porn off Direct TV I'm gonna beat both of your asses. Fair warning. Put down the remote...NOW.

Happy Cinco De Mayo!!!
Ace already had too many and did a keg stand earlier so he is passed out, but Lynn, that girl can drink me under the table...

Even makes the funniest faces ever. She always looks tweaked. lol

WOOT! I am so glad to hear Jadah is going to be alright! What a stressful ordeal to go through all around!

On another note I think your Even and my Sissy dog must be cousins because Sissy=No personal space, super motion triggered, and weird faces galore! She isn't too pleasant with other dogs though, she tolerates to say the least.

Karen said...

Oh that's great news about Jadah!
Reading that link, it sounded pretty positive, and just the fact that she was able to get up on her back end after the first acupuncture treatment, that's awesome!

Catalina said...

Even sounds like Tibby's idea of a perfect friend. She is always jumping and slapping other dogs in the face. Isn't that the most direct way to make new friends? ;)
At day care they say she runs around poking the other dogs with her nose and then running away. She wants them to chase her!

Can we please discuss further your comment on building off switches? I live in a house with 3 dogs now, 2 under 1 year, and I'd love to bring in a 4th but I don't want my roommates to evict me and my 2 collies in order to get a moment's rest...

Karissa :) yeppers :) She is...always! LOL

Breanna--thanks for commenting! Yep on everything like Sissy but the other dogs thing...Even is TOO friendly with other dogs...LOL

Karen--thanks so much for the email on the harness, she did end up using your info to get things fixed up for Jadah! :)

Catalina--Tibby and Even can play sometime then! LOL

Kellen--yes, I can for sure do that...I'll make a note of it and talk about what I do. It's pretty easy really. Just takes time, like anything else :)
